IT first reveal was focused on lines I don't collect but I consider the Montaigne Market Elise and the Subscription Vanessa a good sign, I don't collect 16" dolls but they were absolutely stunning....
Anyway I only collect "faces" I don't own yet, so for this year I believe there won't be many new entries......
And for Mattel, they are "sitting" on several beautiful face sculpts they seldom use, and hopefully something will come up this year. Last year collection was a huge disappointment (for me, I don't collect silkstones, and silkstones last year were beautiful)
Nora, Good point about Mattel possibly using the screening on another one this year. I'm also holding out on getting any of the past Fashion Royalty dolls untill I see what they come out with in the spring. Keeping fingers crossed since I wasn't crazy about what has come out so far.
@Jane: the only good thing about this doll (besides her beautiful face and screening) is that she comes on a full pivotal body....
The price now are really too high.....sometimes being patient and wait for a doll to come at the right price is rewarding.....and maybe Mattel is going to use the Mermaid sculpt again this year...
Nora, You're quite right about the accessories being awful. The average price seems to be around 225 USD and much more on ebay. Then I have the exchange rate adding to it lately. It's put a bit of a crimp in my spending habits when I see the big difference after the exchange, then duty on top of that. I find it kind of odd that there are hardly any fashion dolls for sale within Canada compared to the listings for the USA. You did get a deal, I may try to hold out for a bit in the chance someone will sell a used, nude mermaid doll. Chances a slim though...
@Jane: I know, I made nearly "a bargain" when I bought her as she came off at "only" 150 Usd, quite a bit for a Barbie doll as the accessories are pretty awful....but I wanted her very badly....
Thanks Nora, I'm already searching the internet to buy this beautiful girl. Pretty hefty prices on ebay right now though!
@Jane: you're welcome! this is the "Mermaid 2012" Barbie: http://www.barbiecollector.com/shop/doll/mermaid-barbie-doll-w3427
I was looking at your photos and when I saw this, I didn't recognize this doll. She looks like a barbie but I'm not sure. Which Barbie would this be if you don't mind me asking.
she is a beautiful doll
