Before I can cool it, I "need"- Gno 4pack, ILF Clawdeen and Scarah, GIGI (where are you??), the Mad Science 2-pack, and the MF 2-pack. Wow, that's lot. Not to mention a bunch of Equestria Girls, other G4s (Funkos, Favorites set, maybe a GIANT fluttershy...) and the new novis. Oh boy.  ^^; Well, I bet a bunch of these will be Christmas presents. ^_^

I heard a rumor that 13 Wishes Abbey has begun showing up in stores, has anyone found her yet??

She's been on all the stores' shelves here for a couple of weeks.

I actually kind of wish I *wasn't* so good at spotting asymmetry but I just have an eye for that kind of thing. It's like when I read a book - I can't help but notice all the typos and grammatical errors and things. I don't *look* for them. They just jump out at me. Same with wonkiness on doll faces and the like. I just notice it without even deliberately looking for it.

Here is a picture of Scarah with her head straight:



re: eye wonk, I already told puki this, but I am the WORST judge of it, however, I agree it always looks worse in photos than in person
You're right. The trouble is that I'm a photographer. Having something look worse in a photo than it does in person is a bad thing.

This is what I see when I look at the above photo:



I've told my friend's friend that if she doesn't find a better one while she's out and about in the next couple of days I'll take this one (I don't want her going out of her way again just on account of my fussiness). I figure I can always be patient and see if I can find another Scarah with better eyes somewhere down the line. We may even get her here sometime next year (we'll supposedly be getting the first two ILF dolls here soon). In the meantime, I could just have her wear her sunglasses or brush her hair in front of her eye or something.

Of course, it doesn't help that Mattel is deliberately making her scarce by short-packing her (I understand it's 3 Clawdeens and 1 Scarah per case). Why do they do that?! It's like they want to help out the scalpers, not us collectors. Blargh.

Although now after Puku's comparison shots I hope she doesn't look strange among  my other Frankie's with those different eyes. It almost seems like they're trying to make them more "baby faced" and less "sexy and sultry".
I am thinking the same thing.

Puk  until you did the pic with the cross lines I didn't notice the eyes being off but right off the bat I did see the eyebrows were wonky!   I'm not picky about eye wonk myself but I did see the eyebrows.  I think it's a makeup thing for me though.  :biggrin:  It looks like she put her makeup on unevenly.   :P

Yay new thread! 
Saw a 13W Draculaura missing her lamp today... Why would someone steal just the lamp? >_>

Woohoo that wonky eyed Clawdeen is so cute :D

Good lord, that Clawdeen. That poor poor girl. Someone get her some dark sunglasses! Or she could be a pirate!

Yeah, that is some major wonky eye! Whew!

Well, that's the thing, since Scarah has't got pupils, it's harder to tell with her. Looking at the eyebrows is the only way really.

is it horrible that I don't really see anything wrong with that clawdeen? I mean I see her one eye is slightly bigger, but I don't see anything THAT major.  :blush:

Her right eye is higher up than the other on the horizontal axis. It's also either squashed or else her left eye is stretched on the vertical axis.

Wow that grid really helps! I guess not having pupils totally tricks the mind... but she's so lovely anyway, I can't wait till I can find one!

Yeah I see her left eye being stretched :( She's the only one I have ever seen in person with Eye Wonk and of course I wasn't looking at it at the store-i was checking her hair as the other 2 there had some major hair issues

I've seen a lot of wonky eyes, but then as I said, they just sort of jump out at me. I can live with minor eye wonk (all three of my Cleos have one eye that's not quite right, but it's barely noticeable most of the time). It's just when it's really obvious (to me at least) that I just can't stand it. Once I notice it, that's all I see.

You know, Mattel might be willing to replace yours for you.

I don't really see a whole lot wrong myself.  I wouldn't reject her, nothing is smudged, it is just slightly larger to me too.

Rolls around in new tread.  I really only notice eye wonk if it is obviously mis-printed.

Yup, Saturday at Wally World!!

My Walmart had a clearance shelf tag on Twyla of $13. They red tagged a bunch of others, too, but most were only a couple dollars off. They had been absolutely ransacked, though - they're moving everything around and red tagging stuff to make room for Christmas, but man... it's like a war zone back there.

They didn't actually HAVE any Twy's though.
Looking for: Freaky Fusion Scarah/Toralei's purse, Gloom Beach Jackson's sandals/Casket Ball/Sun Glasses, and B&W SS Frankie's bracelet, Satin Re-release ST Clawdeen Hood

Wanted   Sales
