Reading that page I can say that those dolls are home made using other dolls pieces so, it's impossible to found them in any shop...

Maybe I should send a mail to that guy asking for how he made Suigintou's doll, is cuttie ^^

I don't collect figurines at all, I can hardly afford some anime and manga, much less luxurious items such as these, but if anything could get me started, a couple of Suigintou figurines would be high on the list.

If you can' get them to ship to you I've used these guys to ship stuff to me, they can also help with translation. It's a bit of a PITA, but it works especially for the hard to get stuff

This thread is getting hard to follow. A lot of people are posting pictures without saying exactly what the figs are, where to get them, and whether it's mass produced or a custom job. I know it's fun to tease people but it's not fair.

Can someone please elaborate on this figure - http://img526.imageshack.us/img526/9...9139294yr5.jpg ?


Honestly, the problem with the RM license is that unfortunately Peach Pitt picked a very expensive thing to model their characters on. Dolls are viscously overpriced for what they are - honestly, I could buy a full sized, custom fitted much more elaborate version of Suiseisiki's dress off eBay AND a bunch of action figures with twice as much plastic as a doll for about the same price as her Pullip(which isn't terribly accurate), and that's the *Cheap* doll. Honestly, for close to $100 I'd be expecting to get something more like the Super Dollfie(and more accurate). The materials, the amount of work, just isn't there for that cost to be fair, and RM seems to be popular enough for it not to be as entirely "niche" as it maybe once was. Not to mention that most of the bodies are mass-mass-produced,

I would love to collect dolls but this insane pricing compared to action figures is just ridiculous.

What Rozen Maiden needs is an action figure company, not a doll company. What needs to happen is for some action figure company, preferably Western but I don't see that happening, maybe someone like Takara, making near-full scale Rotocast super-posable action figures. Rotocast basically means they're softer and hollow, this can make superposability like you'd need for a doll more awkward but it should still work.
These would be bigger, more detailed, and at least twice as cheap as the Pullips(i've seen "Marvel Legends Icons" which I'm not sure are even rotocast going for E18 in my area, which is nothing, and they're just as big as and much more detailed than any doll of that size). Of course, they'd probably have soft plastic instead of cloth(possibly the difficult part), but that depends on who's doing it. If it means paying a lot less for a better, bigger more accurate figure, I'd go with the soft plastic anyway - it often tends to look better.

As for "proper" Action figures, I'm still sad that Takara hasn't done a Microman line - I can't think of a more perfect line for it since Microman is so much smaller than other anime/comic book figures they'd be in scale, and the bodies are quite similar to a lot of BJD in appearance. I have a Microman Chun-Li and she's very nice. If RM is popular enough to warrant a ridiculous amount of statues, a couple of action figures(though they were ridiculously priced, may as well get the Pullips for what they were charging), tons of dolls, palm figures, keychains I don't see why there isn't money to be made in doing this.

I wonder what the market would be like for custom RM Micromen? I could probably make a couple... it's not that difficult as long as I go with the simpler anime-style dresses and not the more elaborate manga ones.

Btw, do you know about those new albums?
Well don't know how new they are...
take a look at wikipedia
At the bottom.....
There are two versions of "Suigintou no Koyoi mo Ennu~i"... But those aren't those new..
I meant..
1. Memories of Garden Party ....
quote from wiki
Quote:
Memories of Garden Party is a CD that came bundled with the collector's edition of the 1st Rozen Maiden träumend DVD. Recorded on this CD are the guest segments which were excluded from the Web Radio CD Special. The extras are the rest of the short dramas that were not included in the first CD, from episodes 8 to 17.
and second is Bara no Kaori no Garden Party...
You can find info on wikipedia about that......
Man.... I want all RM albums
