Doll have begun to arrive now! I figured some of them would be arriving at the same time and I was right! I have finally received my Dollzone Brown Snow Fulai and my Rumpel Doll Morfeo head! I am still waiting on the following dolls to arrive:
Dear doll companies,
PLEASE STOP DISCONTINUING ALL THESE DOLLS AT ONCE. I AM FUCKING BROKE!
At the end of May, Dollzone's little demonish dolls will be DISCONTINUED. I am pretty sure I had read somewhere that these girls were not going to be limited. They were only on sale for a short period of time for not being limited dolls. I wonder what could have happened to make Dollzone decide not to sell them anymore? Where they too difficult to mold and cast? Did the original sculptor back out of a contract or something? We may never know. I am just glad I was able to get my hands on one and a very limited brown one at that! (Just checked the website and the Fanen series dolls are listed under the limited tab.)
I like the color of my doll, but the deep color in the promotional pictures is different than in real life. I am still deciding on how to customize her, just like....ALL my other dolls.
This was my first time ordering through the USA agent BJDivas. I usually don't like going through agents because the wait times are increased by several months. The reason for this is because some agents wait and send in the orders in batches. For example, I am pretty sure Denver Doll Emporium will not send in orders to the doll companies until they have reached a certain amount of orders or dollar amount. Another factor could be that the doll companies themselves will not send out the orders until they have quite a few dolls to send together. In the case of BJDivas, I believe they said that they send the order in right away. However, I am almost positive the orders are only sent when a large number of them has been completed.
I had started seeing brown girlies for sale on DoA and facebook, and I kept checking my order but the status was not changing. I contacted BJDivas to ask how much longer it would take and they stated that they had received a large shipment from Dollzone a while ago, but had yet to go through anything to see what was what. They said they would contact me back ASAP and let me know if my Fulai was there.
Ten days later I had not heard anything so I contacted BJDivas again. They said they still had not gone through anything, but that my Fulai was defiantly there. They also wanted to charge me shipping ($13) and I had to remind them they I had already paid $18 for shipping when I bought the doll. BJDivas said they would refund me the difference unless I wanted insurance. I did, so I had to pay them about $7 more on top of the $18.00. There for I paid $25.73 in total for shipping. If I ordered through them directly (or through ACBJD) I would have paid about $30 for EMS shipping and that price already includes insurance. Not only that, but I would have received the order a lot sooner.
I went through BJDivas to save some money on shipping, but in the end I didn't save anything. I think from now on I will order through the companies themselves. Unfortunately, I have about 6-7 more orders coming form BJDivas. Lesson learned I guess!
What a long winded post. Anywho, here is the Dollzone Snow Fulai box opening.
I will post the Morfeo box opening up on youtube later, as I haven't gotten it off my phone yet. I will be taking my time deciding on a body for him.
