Abbey's Ice Sculpture Differences?
« on: March 17, 2018, 10:09:30 PM »
Hey guys!

I was looking around for something about this here, but I couldn't find anything, so I figured it would be ok to post a topic about it. Hope it's ok!

A couple of days ago I was able to get my hands on my first Abbey Bominable doll, her Art Class release. I was very excited but I did notice something strange - a lot of the dolls' ice sculptures were stark white, and only one of the bunch had a beautiful iridescent/icy texture to it. I was lucky enough to get that one since the face paint and details were perfect, but it got me thinking - does anybody know why is that?

I looked up on Ebay and out of all the ones on sale, there's also only two of them that have that kind of sculptures. If you haven't seen it, here's how it looks (kind of, it's much better in person):

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I tried looking up on the internet, to no avail  :blink:

Mine was iridescent too, and all that were on sale in.my area were iridescent, so I can't say if it's a rare thing or maybe the iridescent coating rubbed off?

That's the strange thing, because it didn't look like the texture was painted on, it seemed more like they used two different kinds of plastics. I was checking out some pictures on amazon, and even those have different sculptures on the product page:

Also, i just noticed looking at these pictures that on the promo pic Abbey's icycle belt is blue, but i know for a fact it's white on all the ones i've ever seen, so that might be a picture of the prototype.

Maybe the iridescent version was a limited run and then they used white plastic for the next batches?

Now i'm even more curious haha :P

Mine was stark white, but if I can find where I put it I might make a resin cast and make an actually icy-looking one :p
My guess is it was a limited-run sort of thing

Maybe a difference in the different factories?

That is my guess as well.

Oh, is that a thing that happens with accesories on MH? I think this is the first time I notice because it looks so different. Actually, I just realized that my PD Operetta has the variant web mask! I didn't realize she had two versions.

If it's a factory thing, that's a random inconsistency. I guess because these are playline toys they don't care too much about details like that, but to an adult collector those kind of differences are pretty noticeable, maybe even to a teenager. Who knows  :P
