  • In a surprise move, Volks has shown off two fully finished Dollfie Dreams for their next pre-order project and both are a total surprise. I know we were all hoping for Nier or Luka, but we’re getting… more Saber! Fate/Grand Order Saber and Jeanne d’Arc, to be exact. I’m going to be honest: I am not happy with this decision. We have so very many Saber Dollfies already, and it looks like the new one has the same head sculpt. Jeanne is pretty, but do we NEED more Fate Dollfies that are, essentially, Saber clones? I’d much prefer any of the Casters. Or, like, any other character. Ishtar? A new Rin? But nope, it’s DD Saber again. They will be pre-order dolls so no rush to enter a lottery! Hopefully this isn’t like the last set, though, where Volks wanted the whole cost upfront. Since these have armor & swords they will likely be around $1,000 each, and I can’t imagine casually dropping 2k for a product you won’t get for a year! [via Volks]

  • Choo choo, all aboard the Vocaloid hype train~ This is an announcement I was expecting, but am still excited about. To follow up Dollfie Dreams Miku, Snow Miku, and Rin & Len, Volks will be adding Luka Megurine! AKA my favorite Vocaloid girl, I’m such a sucker for that long pink hair. Hopefully she will be a pre-order like all the others! They also announced two new Miku DD outfits from 7th Dragon that are just gorgeous. I’m sure they will be in the $150-200 range because the wig might be included, but honestly… totally worth it. I’ve skipped all the previous alt Miku outfits, but if pre-orders for this open at the same time as Luka they are coming home to me. [via the Dollfie Dream Twitter]

  • Now of all the collaborations Volks could have done in the Dollfie Dream line, this is one I never would have expected. Sure, NieR is popular, but it seems so complex for a DD! Then again, we did get KOS-MOS, so all things are possible if you believe. We will be getting not one but two Dollfie Dreams from them! YoRHa No. 2 Type B and YoRHa No. 9 Type S (so yes, another boy Dollfie!). I’m going to be a little hopeful and think that combination of 2 announcements and such a big license might mean pre-order. How great would that be? [via Volks’ Twitter]

  • Male anime-style dolls used to be a thing of dreams and only dreams, but recently they’ve become a very firm reality. First we got Len from Volks, and now it’s time for Kirito from Sword Art Online! I mean, he looks pretty damn feminine here, but that’s to be expected with dolls right? In any case, you now have multiple choices for some DD boyfriends for your ladies. Many years ago we got an Asuna Dollfie, and of course she’ll be getting a re-release… of sorts. This new ‘Titania’ version will be on sale with Kirito, and while I adore her outfit & ears the face has still not won me over. There’s no concrete info on when these will go for sale, as the blog just says early summer, but I have a strong suspicion these will be lottery and not pre-order. [via the DD Blog]

  • Santa Alter, just put Excalibur under the tree, for me…. I’ve been an awful good girl~ So, Volks really loves Saber from Fate/Stay Night. We’ve gotten a ton of versions of her, including regular, Lily, Alter, and Extra. Now it’s time for one more! In a very strange choice (no Mordred?) they’ve gone with Santa Saber aka Rider. A real character from Fate/Grand Order. What is this franchise turning into?! In any case, this doll is basically Saber Alter (who, remember, was a pre-order doll so there are lots of her on the market!) in Christmas-themed clothing. Not their most exciting release, no? To be honest this seems like a shameless money grab: why not just release the outfit? Why not give us OG Rider, a Dollfie fans have been clamoring for? Or Caster/Caster Extra? The answer is money.

  • 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!

  • 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 don’t actually like watching idol shows at all, but for some reason (“some reason” come on it’s the cute outfits) they are a huge figure-weakness for me. Especially IDOLM@STER! So imagine my delight when this IM@S event happened. And the tears my wallet is shedding. We have quite a few figures: Aniplex/Stronger’s Haruka, Mirai, and Uzuki trio are painted, as is Phat! Company’s Rika and Max Factory’s Nitta Minami. Phat’s Kirari Moroboshi and Anzu Futaba duo was out on display, and they have a new announcement for Frederica Miyamoto from Cinderella Girls. Last but not least, Anastasia will be the next addition to Volks’ Dollfie Dream line! [via max_machida & Phat Company]

  • It used to be that Volks would do one, maybe two alternate outfits for their Dollfies and that was it. And they were almost always event-limited and hard to get. But times are a changing! Both Sheryl & Ranka and Miku Hatsune have had quite a few extra outfits released well after they came out. I just wish this trend had started with KOS-MOS… Anyway, the new Miku outfit that Volks is putting out this time is the Ribbon Girl outfit, which I am totally smitten with. I mean, the headphones alone are enough to sway me, but add in the hoddie and the amazing wig? Oh my. Sadly, it’s insanely expensive–¥21,800. Ouch! And will probably be event limited, not an online pre-order. But a girl can dream, right? [via Volks’ Blog]

  • Dollfie Dream Snow Miku Hatsune went up for order ages ago, and she still isn’t out. But that’s not stopping Volks for milking the line for all it’s worth! We know that there are roughly twenty million variations of Snow Miku, so it’s no surprise that they are giving us outfit variations. Starting with the very first one, Snow Miku 2012! This is one of the less original Snow Miku redesigns so I’m not overly excited about the outfit for her. I mean, I’ll probably buy it, but that’s because I have Snow Miku DD on order and I want more clothing for her. I’d greatly prefer one of the cooler variations like 2014 or 2013 (never gonna happen, but I can dream!). Orders will open for this set on February 6th, but that’s not all! They have some leftover Dollfie Dream Mikus they will be selling–though I expect it will be really hard to get one, given past sales of extra Dollfies. [via the DD Blog]
