Dollfie Dream Sister Archive
Posted by Leah Bayer on March 30, 2013 | 3 Comments
When Volks released Dollfie Dream Sisters Miki and Haruka, I thought that might be all we saw from the IDOLM@STER line. I mean there are so many girls, it’s not like they can make all of them! But as we’re finding out from Volks News 49, there will be at least two more–Yukiho Hagiwara and Chihaya Kisaragi! I’m a bit surprised, I thought for sure Azusa would be up next given her popularity and I was really hoping for Hibiki as well.
Thankfully neither of these girls sparks my interest (yet) because if they are anything like the first two they will be Japan-only. But who knows, maybe they’ve changed their minds and these girls will come to the US…. as pre-orders! Hey, I can dream. We also have scans of a super cute Alice in Wonderland themed look for Miki and Haruka.

We already know that the Dollfie Dreams at Hometown Dolpa Osaka 7 will be Lucy and Nanami, and we’ve seen the outfits, but that is not all Volks has planned for the event! If you happen to have thousands and thousands of extra dollars you can bid on this one-off custom Dollfie Dream.
It’s Manaka Komaki from ToHeart2 on a Dollfie Dream Sister body with custom faceup and a custom outfit, but I think this pushes the “cute” boundary a little too much. It’s like sugary-sweet and I tend to like my girls looking a bit more casual. Maybe it’s because they used those creepy pupil-less eyes Volks has been favoring recently? Well if you like her the bidding will start at ¥75,000 but if you really want her bring your wallet because I can see this cutie skyrocketing in price… like every Volks one-off.

So we already know that one of the two dolls at Hometown Dolpa Osaka 7 will be Dollfie Dream Sister Nanami, little sis to the ever-popular Natsuki who actually just got a re-release of sorts! In fact we found out about her a long time ago, back when we still thought Mariko would be a little sister to Moe.
I’ve gone back and forth on Nanami a lot. At first I was totally in love, but then I thought that her mouth looked a little weird. I really wanted to see comparison shots with Natsuki, who happens to be a dream doll of mine, and Volks is finally delivering! I’m going to commit Dollfie blasphemy here and say that at this point, I actually like Nanami more. Her eye shape reminds me very strongly of Saber Lily, and what’s not to love about that?

Well, it’s that time again, Volks is getting ready for the next Dollpa, which should take place in March, and just showed off their newest Dollfie, Dollfie Dream Sister Nanami! Nanami is the younger sister of Dollfie Dream Natsuki and is quite adorable. Like Natsuki, Nanami is also a member of the After School Akihabara Girls line and has red hair and a gorgeous smile. No word yet on pricing or if she’ll come with that awesome guitar as well (I’d assume she would), but Nanami will be at the Hometown Dollpa in Osaka. I think I just may have to get my hands on this adorable little rocker!

Yesterday was the last day to order the Xenosaga Dollfies: did you take the plunge? Stephen and I have ordered both KOS-MOS and Momo, though I think I’ve made it pretty clear that KOS is my favorite of the two! Especially with blue eyes, uhnf. But Momo has her own unique charm as well, and is certainly more cute than her mature companion! Her stock wig is a little too neon for my taste, but I adore this alternate look they have her in. Twintails on a DDS is a winning combination!

There are still about 3 weeks left until the Xenosaga Dollfie Dream pre-orders close, which means Volks is cranking out new photos of KOS-MOS and Momo at a rather astounding rate. Of course it’s always nice to see a new doll in different outfits and wigs, since very few owners only keep their dolls in stock.
Both are looking great here, though for me KOS is clearly the star of the show. She’s so effortlessly elegant and seems to look great in any wig! I do wish they’d show off her blue eyes a bit more though since they are the ones a lot of people prefer. Momo will be a bit harder to find a proper look for in my opinion, since I am not liking the shorter wigs on her. I guess we’ll find out for sure when they arrive next autumn!

We just got a nice gallery of Aoko, so of course Melty is up next! As I’ve stated Melty is my favorite of the Dolpa 28 girls, and she’s the one Stephen and I have entered for! This gallery is just making me more excited to find out the results, because Melty is absolutely gorgeous. In the wig they have her in she reminds me a bit of Yuki Morikawa, though really she’s like an improved version of Sakuya.

We’ve already seen Dollfie Dreams KOS-MOS and Momo get a full reveal, along with pricing info, but now we are finally getting complete shots! Mostly of KOS-MOS’s R-Blade, which is so ridiculously awesome. Kind of makes up for her not coming with the guns, right? Pre-orders opened recently and you can get them both at Volks International. Best news? There’s not even a down payment, this is a regular old pre-order and you won’t pay until release in fall.
Volks USA just has Momo up, and their policy is a bit different. You can pay in full or do a down payment of $111–her total price is $811, so that is only a small part that you have to pay up front. Of course with Volks USA you’ll also have a longer wait time, which might be a good thing if you need a while to save up! Personally, Stephen and I went for both of them via the International site (along with 2 guns for KOS!). It is gonna be a loooong wait.

Melty and Aoko, the Dolpa 28 Dollfie Dreams, have been hyped up for quite a while but now it’s finally time for order information! While the international site has not yet put up their information, their lottery is usually after the US one which gets announced first. Volks USA will be taking lottery entries from December 16th to the 19th, so it’s a pretty narrow window as always.
The prices are definitely ouch: Volks USA bumped up their exchange rate recently, which means Stephen and I will be going for just Melty this time around even though we like Aoko too. I mean, Melty is $839! Aoko will be a bit less at $743 and her school uniform will be $129. The entry page is here, and good luck to everyone who takes a shot at these two cuties!

Hot on the heels of the reveal of Dollfie Dream KOS-MOS, it’s time for Momo’s unveiling! We have almost all of the release info already, so all that’s left is the dolls themselves. Momo is just as cute as you’d imagine, with a face that reminds me a bit of a prettier DD Sakura. Her features are so small and cute! Her wig is a little on the bright side, much like KOS-MOS, but the outfit is so spot on. Ah, now I really want both of them!
[UPDATE] Orders start tomorrow and run until January 20th! It seems like down payment plans are basically confirmed, and both KOS-MOS and Momo will be limited to 1 per a customer.
