I have a LOT of them. I wish they weren't so hard to get a hold of in the US.

You can also use a heating pad if you don't want to get your doll's hair wet, and it won't accidently melt anything like a hairdryer can.

The pink and silver boots are from Power Ghouls Spectra, if I am not mistaken.

If anyone is interested, I found the second half of wave one at the store.  The stamped numbers by the barcode started with 365 and they were all the "new" ones.  I basically bought a whole box and got all but two of them, so the pink ones this time aren't quite as rare seeing as how I got the mermaid, the donut, the yeti, and the elephant.  Whereas for the last set I've never acquired a pink one from a store. The packing also seems to be less fixed as I have gotten them in different pairs when I have gotten duplicates.

Help would be awesome.  I'm looking for all six, and I'd really rather not pay $9 each for them.

Oh, it will happily remove paint.  If you look at the description on the manufacturer's website it specifically tells you not to get it on paint as it will remove that too.

Most people that refer to "zit cream" really genuinely mean the stuff you put on your face for acne.

This stuff has removed all kinds of stains for me and, except for blue, hasn't ruined anything that I've tried it on.  It is actually made for restoring dolls and such, so you know it won't have odd side effects later on down the road.

This stuff works really well. It will discolor blue if left on too long.

According to the inventory checker, none of the stores in MA or the surrounding areas have the Halloween ones yet. I am so sad.

Another thing that I am disappointed in is Batsy's design. I wanted a bat, not a pinky unidentified creature with weird ornament on her back. I think she's cute and if they announced her as some sort of jungle demon/spirit, I would probably like her, it's just that I wanted bat and I didn't get one.

I wonder if they blatantly avoided a doll with bat wings because she could be construed as demonic or something. She would have been awesome truly batty and it's a shame she's not quite what we were hoping for.

I have several older ones, but I am also a junkie for the Con exclusive ones.  I have three Hatsune Miku ones too.

I'm curious to know if anyone who has bought the 2-pack has had trouble articulating Amanita's arms at the elbows. The designs molded on as part of her gloves seem to obstruct the disks from moving very much without threatening to pop the peg out, and I wonder if I just had bad luck in what I bought, or if this seems to be a common problem across the board.

I had to trim some of the plastic off to get her arms to bend at all. Mine definitely had he same problem as yours.

Your photos are great, and your girls look wonderful! I do think that it's funny that out of your 30 something and my 20 something none of them overlap.  I keep waiting to see what one of the ones I have would look like with good photography, but you don't have a single one!   :P



Thanks!  :biggrin: And that is super funny that we both have so many but none in common. bhahaha. Have you seen my wishlist for them in "Wanted" section here on the Arena? Are any of the ones you own listed there?? lmao :lol:


Only one! Akemi!

Magical stuff. It's made for doll restoration, so it won't harm your doll.  Just be careful if you use it on anything blue, it will happily bleach your item if left on too long.

As an aside, maybe it was just me, but I tried using benzoyl peroxide on white vinyl, and it turned the vinyl very yellow.

Is Gil actually out yet? I've seen Clawdeen and Catrine from his assortment, but not him.  I've also seen most of the other dolls from the Shriekwrecked line.  Is he coming out later, or am I just too late and keep missing him? I just don't want to keep searching for him if he isn't out yet!

The local Walmarts still haven't gotten the minis in.  Although I could be looking in the wrong section.

Definitely look all over the toy section.  They are frequently not in the same aisle as the actual MH dolls. One store I went to had them in the "boy" section, totally not where you would expect to find them. Sometimes they are also in small boxes instead of the vertical display box.

Raven. I like her character, and I like her clothes, but something about the doll just seems empty or missing. I really want to like her, but I just can't.

I use a standard body heating pad. I got my current one at Target. It's a basic Sunbeam model.  I just put the dolls on it and fold the pad in half around them and let them bake for a little bit. It saves their hair from getting wet and/or melted!
