Normally I review dolls as they arrive, sometimes dolls slip through the cracks and never get a review Jaldet is one of those dolls. This review came as a result of my agreeing to trade my spare NRFB Jaldet to a friend of mine in Australia (I’m getting an amazing custom), as I deboxed her I realized that well she really is a special release that gets overlooked a lot and that well there really weren’t many photos of her so I decided to take some pictures before packing her up. I decided she also needs a review here as she somehow never got one.
Jaldet was released way back in February of 2011, she has a gothic mermaid theme. Groove gets a lot of criticism these days for not having very original releases anymore (lots of collaborations or re-colors have been released recently) and well Jaldet is definitely a very unique concept. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a gothic mermaid with a top hat anywhere else before or since. Jaldet has a MSRP of 10000 yen. I honestly can not recall where I bought this one in particular but Pullipstyle currently has her available for $92 and JPGroove has her available for $99.99.
I am going to care for my world… Now come, I will bind you to my world with my thread… Feel Like So

I just wanted to drop a quick note here that the sailor soldier of love and beauty is now up for preorder at Pullipstyle! Sailor Venus’ preorder period has officially begun, she is set for a November release and is priced at $135.
Don’t miss your chance to add Sailor Venus to your Sailor senshi crew. This collaboration series keeps on getting better and better, I can’t wait to see Sailor Mars and Sailor Jupiter… and dare I hope for a Tuxedo Mask to be released?
“I love seeing you with your eyes closed. Even if those lips never open, I will love you forever!!”
Twilight Destiny, Snow White’s intended, is a handsome prince indeed. His hair is silky soft and falls in his eyes in a very appealing way. He has beautiful brown eyes. He has a lot of bottom eyelashes, which I like but some people may not. He has manly eyebrows and pale lips.
He arrives wearing all of his stock except his cape, so he is easy to debox. He has the usual kingly Taeyang shoes.
His cape actually hooks under his collar, and I like the way it drapes because of that. His outfit has lots of nice touches and a rich feel overall. The quality is high.
I give this Taeyang a 10 out of 10!
Twilight Destiny is one of the event dolls for the 2015 Pullip and Dal Doll Lovers Event.
Late last night official Sailor Moon site announced Pullip Sailor Venus as the third doll to be released in the Sailor Moon collaboration line of dolls. Groove then confirmed the announcement via their blog this morning. No idea why they chose to go out of order (Sailor Venus was the last inner senshi found though she had been active as Sailor V long before any of the others) but I’m not going to complain as Sailor Venus was always my favorite inner senshi and she looks fantastic. The dolls in this line just seem to be getting better and better with each release.
No details have been released yet about release date or price. Also no word on what the Bandai shop exclusive version will have as an exclusive though at this point I’m going to assume it’s going to be a small Artemis plush (Sailor Moon did come with Luna). Sailor Venus will be on display at Doll Show 41 on September 15th. As soon as more details/photos become available I will be sure to keep everyone updated.
There are only six days left to sign up for Dalicious, the Dal only photo contest hosted by the Dolly Market forum. Though the contest is hosted by Dolly Market, the contest is open to anyone and everyone who owns a Dal that wants to compete. To enter please send the following information to Dalicious@dollymarket.net
Forum Name: (or other preferred name if not on the forum)
Fun Fact About Your Dal:
A 200×200 picture of your Dal contestant is also required to be put on the contestants page. It would also be nice if you included what Dal you are entering ie. what model Coco etc but it is not required. Signs up run through until September 15th, the contest will begin on September 20th and goes all the way through October 25th.
Of course there are some very fabulous prizes for Dalicious! JPGroove has very generously donated two Dals to be used as prizes for Dalicious. The two Dals are the sixth anniversary Jouet and Tina from the Chinese Ghost Story series. The winner of Dalicious will receive their choice of the two Dals and the second place winner will receive the other Dal, there are lots of other great prizes available too such as a mini Dal that Pullipstyle is donating.
Though I have competed in the past, I will not be competing this round instead I will be one of the judges. JPGroove sent me the prize Dals so I could announce them as prizes and I will ship the dolls out to the winners at my own expense at the conclusion of the contest (priority within the US, first class international).
