I got this one! I just thought he looked like a bad a$$.
And here are the J-Dolls:
I wanted the last one, but she was busted in each version I saw of her.
I went to 4 stores trying to find a good one. Her hand was either gone, cracked or had a fracture going up her wrists. You can find her at Amazon, but I would be scared to order one now and I certainly don't want to pay full price. But, in searching all over for her, I found this awesome one instead and she was in perfect condition!
Love her! This is so my style - well, if I was half my size
and half my age, this would be my style.
Their heads are twist and turn only, no up or down motion. That sorta bothers me, but not by much because I don't view her as a "play" doll, but more as a "collectible." They also have glued on wigs instead of rooting.
The metal pole in her stand is adjustable, but it's wobbly.
Back of the dress has 2 single stitches to gather it.
The bolts are in her back and waist, but not legs.
The black band is actually a bra but I think it works as a belt.
Vest closes with a hook.
Bag has a snap closure and leg warmers are kinda crunchy.
Her shoes do not have a slit in the back, and because of this, I will never try to put them on her because I think her articulated feet would snap and fall off if I tried to remove them. She can wear Barbie/Monster boots and high ankle pumps.
In her sensible undies
Even though she was plastic wrapped, she still got stained.
Her articulation lets her sit really nicely.
She compares well to other dolls, however, her wrists don't turn and her elbows only bend one way so there are some hand movements that she cant achieve. Basically, if she's sitting, her hands will always be palm up.
Surprisingly her outfit can be worn by a Barbie body.
On a Monster, not so much.
Because of her stature, she can wear a variety of clothing. The hoochier the Barbie wear, the better it fits her. Liv clothes are pretty loose on her, but many Bratz tops are a good fit.
My final impression of this doll is that she is exceedingly fragile. Her joints are tight, which is a good thing, but the material of her plastic body is quite lightweight. She has to be handled carefully or she will fracture easily. Her clothes, however, are top notch! Such high quality and very well made. Would I buy another J-Doll? Probably not, but only because I don't think the quality of the body is worth paying $20 for. If they were $10, my goodness, I'd buy every single one just for the clothes alone! I do doubt these will make it to prices that low because there is something quite charming about them and I think they will sell quickly. And, like Big Lots, Tuesday Morning doesn't restock. They sell out a shipment and that's it. So, if you want one, I'd get one now.
I'm glad I got mine!
