I managed to get a doll I was missing for a very reasonable price off eBay but it's been 5 days and she still hasn't shipped. Should I wait or should I do something and if so what? I'm worried I'm not going to get her.

I couldn't believe the thrift haul I got. In one of the bags was Giselle from Enchanted. I had found her dress a long time ago so I was pleased to be able to finally put the dress on a doll. And the fact that another bag had a MTM Barbie that was a close match made it even better. But then I took her out of the bag and looked closer. Turns out her hair hid this...
So anyways is there anything I can do to fix her face? If I can't fix her I might just save the MTM for something else but I really wanted a Giselle.
For a while all I've seen are Frankie and DL but lately at Walmart I saw Clawdeen and at Target I saw Cleo and Lagoona. So they are trickling out into the wild. I'm guessing Clawdeen has her own case and that Cleo and Lagoona might share a case.
Pics in case anyone forgot:
Apparently every year around the holiday season Lanard Toys has a big open to the public warehouse sale at their Missouri warehouse. It's a trove of toys both current and past and I think I spy some Catwalk Kitties, Pet Zoo, and ponies in amongst them. Here are some pics someone took at last year's sale.
Does anyone here live close enough to check it out?
The European EAH and MH FB Page posted these:
These remind me a lot of the Disney Animators dolls. While I do find them cute I don't collect big toddler dolls. Tho if they are actually small or they do mini versions I'll have to have them.
I'm trying to sell a doll on ebay and I got a buyer but I must have forgotten to uncheck GSP because they are in Italy. I'm leery because I have heard that sometimes there are problems with shipping to Italy. What should I do? What can I even do?
I haven't updated my old trade thread for a while so I figured it was high time to make a new one.
Nude DC Operetta
Swim Venus with extra skirt
Ghouls Rule Draculaura with repainted lips
Still in box but if you want her shipped loose just let me know.
OOAK Alternate Sweet 1600 Clawdeen
She has a custom skirt based on the human sized petti skirt. Other than the skirt she is the same as the original doll since I didn't rehair or repaint her. Comes with all the stuff the Original first run doll came with except the pants since I used them to make the skirt. While I didn't sew any hems I did use Fray Check so there is no danger of the edges fraying. I'm valuing her around $60.

While I prefer to trade I'll also accept reasonable money offers through PayPal.
I'm also on the look out for interesting fakies based on the toy lines I collect.
I will consider international trades as well.
If you see something you want and don't have anything on my want list but have other things make an offer.
Has anyone else noticed that Mattel no longer brings attention to their exclusives? Like there used to be a big "Only at ______ / Exclusively at ______" sticker on every exclusive and they would show them off at SDCC. This year not a peep about exclusives and lately they haven't been labeling things so nobody knows if something is exclusive until later when it turns out they only showed up at one store like GnB Cleo and Jinnafire or Fairest on Ice.
How hard are missed regular releases to track down? I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to get everything on my wishlist before it leaves shelves (and I think some of them already have). Am I doomed to pay above retail (unless I want one with messy hair and missing the arms and/or half the stock) or are there still deals to be had? Tell me your experiences with tracking down "the one that got away".
So next month will be NY Toy Fair. And that means news on what's coming out later this year. Unfortunately it is only open to the toy industry and the media. Last year Raye did a fantastic job covering it on her blog but I heard she won't be able to make it this year. Does anyone know of any other bloggers who are planning to attend?
Anything anyone is hoping to see? I'm personally hoping for better pics of Shriek Wrecked and EAH Birthday Ball.
