Dollfie Dream Sister Archive

  • Two years ago, Volks added Sheryl and Ranka to the Dollfie Dream line. They were part of the pre-order project, so for many collectors they were finally accessible in the cutthroat world of actually owning a character DD. Now it seems they’re continuing the Macross line with Freyja Wion! I have to say I’m not a huge fan of the wig or outfit, but I love her face and eyes! So cute. Since we have a pre-order set going already she’s certainly not going to be one of those, and will likely be a lottery doll. Unless they’re pulling a Snow Miku and doing two pre-orders back to back!

    Freyja Wion Is Getting A Dollfie Dream

  • It’s been a while since we had a pre-order Dollfie! We had Snow Miku in January of last year, but she actually just shipped out and I got mine only 2 weeks ago. Volks is so slow, but worth it. Well, they’ve just announced the newest pre-order project and it’s IDOLM@STER! And 3 dolls instead of 2. First up are Iori and Yayoi, who will be on the new Dollfie Dream Pretty bodies which are between a DDS and MDD. Yayoi is usually one of my least-favorite girls but I am so smitten with her face! Each of them retail for ¥60,000. Then we have Anastasia from Cinderella Girls, who will be on a Dollfie Dream Sister body. She has a face shape I usually love, and while I do like her I think the pronounced lashes are a little odd–but they look so lovely in some shots! Hard to tell what she’ll look like with a different wig and outift, though Volks always gives us a few pictures like that as orders open. Anastasia comes in at a bit more at ¥68,000. And of course, all 3 of them have alternate outfits! Orders open up on October 8th and run until December 4th, and they won’t be out until fall of 2017 (so expect about a year’s wait). Sure, it’s a long time, but with something this pricey it’s great to have so much time to save up. [via Volks]

  • I’ve been trying my hardest to stay away from the world of Dollfie Dreams because, well, they’re hella expensive. One DD is roughly half of a monthly AmiAmi order, so getting one severely limits figure purchasing abilities (and, you know, things like food. eating is good). But sometimes I just… I want more so bad. Like today! Because it’s always been my dream to own a Tony Taka elf girl DD with real elf ears AND NOW THERE IS ONE, be still my heart. Coming to Hometown Dolpa in August are Kirika Towa Aruma from Shining Resonance and Alisa Ilinichina Amiella from God Eater. Both are totally gorgeous but Kirika, oh my god. Perfection. Then we have yet another version of Mariko (this is 3, if you’re counting) which will be at the Dollfie Dream Fest on July 25th. I’m happy with my Mariko so she doesn’t tempt me at all but man do I want to enter the lottery for Kirika… and maybe Alisa… [via the DD Twitter]

  • Remember those rumors about a DD Sasara re-release? Well, seems like it wasn’t all hot air–it is actually happening! Both Sasara and the more recent Melty will be getting “re-releases” for Dolpa 32, which takes place on December 14th. Why re-release in quotes? Well, they’re both in new outfits, so technically they are different from the base models! And, obviously, Sasara is getting the newer DDdy body. Melty will be in (surprise) her Christmas-themed outfit for ¥62,000, which is basically just the base one with a color swap. I have two of the original Melty and love her to death, so this is great news for people lusting after her! Sasara will be in a sweeter, lighter-colored outfit than her original release and will retail for ¥66,000. [via pink_dokuro’s Twitter]

  • Given all the popular new shows currently airing (or just wrapped up), I was hoping for some exciting new announcements for DD Fes 2014. Maybe Mikasa? I mean, she’s certainly popular enough to warrant it… and her face would make for a lovely DD head! But no, we’re getting not one but TWO repeats! The first is Akira 2nd Ver., which is basically Akira… in a new outfit. No face changes or body changes. Akira is my least favorite of all the DDs I own, I actually feel kind of bad about it sometimes. Poor Akira. Then we have Alna. Again. Yes, this is the THIRD time Volks is releasing an Alna. But now it’s semi-white skin! Meaning she’s gotten three (regular, white, semi-white) leaving only the elusive tan before we have Alna in all the colors they offer. Wow. Exciting. [via the DD Blog]

  • When Volks announced a Dollfie Dream Sister of Ranko Kanzaki and showed off Rin Shibuya, my heart was all aflutter. I’ve really been trying to stay out of the DD game, mostly because of space issues–they’re just SO BIG. Also DD clothing is insanely expensive. But I think Ranko might make me break down–I mean, I even skipped Miku, but something about Ranko is just too beautiful. Plus, her stage outfit is the best thing ever. Rin is quite lovely as well, though I don’t feel that tug of “GOTTA OWN RIGHT NOW.” She does remind me a little bit of Miki Hoshii, my DD holy grail, but two dolls at once is just too many! Her stage outfit though… will probably stain like crazy. Dolpa 31 takes place on May 5th, and the international lottery will start soon after. Are any of you Plastikitties planning on entering?

  • It has been a while since I’ve purchased a Dollfie. In fact, my last two were KOS-MOS and Momo! Because once you’ve hit the around-20-Dollfies mark you start questioning your life choices. Until, you know, something as utterly perfect as Ranko comes along. We’ve known for a while now that we would be getting a Dollfie Dream Sister of Rin Shibuya, and I secretly hoped that Ranko would be joining her–dreams really do come true! Both of them are SO BEAUTIFUL JUST LOOK I can’t even oh my god. Rin & Ranko will have both stage and casual outfits, with Ranko’s featuring friggin angel wings. Both will be at Dolpa 31 on May 5th, and while they’ll probably be Japan exclusives like the other IDOLM@S girls I do expect an international lottery. Which I will be entering with a fiery passion.

  • Quite a while back we found out that Youmu Konpaku would be the next Touhou Project Dollfie Dream–or Dollfie Dream Sister, to be exact! An odd choice, in my mind, since I thought a more mature-looking girl like Yukari or Ran should be next up. But oh well, Volks does what they want! Youmu is finally ready to hit the stage, and she’ll be making an appearance at Hometown Dolpa Kyoto 10. Sadly, like all Touhou girls she’ll be exclusive to Japan. She looks a bit too much like Sakuya in my mind, with almost identical eye shape. Is it just me or are more unique DD heads harder and harder to come by? She’ll retail for ¥62,000 and the event will take place on March 9th, so get your wallets ready if you are participating in the international lottery! [via Volks]

  • Dolpa Nagoya 5 is taking place soon, and for once we aren’t getting our info on the new girls from scans! That’s right, no blurry pictures–but as always, beware, Dollfie Dream promotional shots are misleading as hell. They look so much better in person! First up is a re-release of the lovely Sakuya/Maxima from Shining Blade, this time in her Crimson Mode outfit (which Kotobukiya gave us a figure of!). I kind of regretted passing up on her the first time, so I don’t know if I can pass over a twintailed version. Then we have two more IDOLM@STER girls! First it was Miki and Haruka, and now Yukiho and Chihaya who were actually announced back in March. Both are way prettier than I expected, but like Miki and Haruka I expect they’ll be Japan-only. Which is shame, I’m kind of in love with Yukiho’s face! [via the DD Blog]

  • 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. [via Puchisato]
