More Pullip/Taeyang Releases Announced for November!

Groove has announced a new Pullip as well as two new Taeyang releases for November via their blog last night. The new dolls join Princess Serenity from the Sailor Moon x Pullip collaboration who had already been announced for a November release. Previously Groove had announced that Michan would be releasing an album “7-5 Drowsy” in Japan and that two custom dolls would be featured  on it’s cover. The cover was an alternate limited edition variant.

The custom Taeyang pictured on the alternate album cover was based on Michan himself, the custom Pullip Nanachan seems to be inspired by his cat.
November Releases
When pictures of the pair first surfaced of the pair on Groove’s blog back in August the fan community seemed to be rather taken with them and a lot of people hoped that they would eventually get made as releases especially since there has only been one Taeyang released this year. I guess Groove heard all our prayers.

Pullip Sailor Moon

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon, tons of new merchandise as well as a new anime series have been released to celebrate the anniversary. Of course, one of the most exciting things to come out of the anniversary celebration is a collaboration with Groove to release dolls based on the different characters in the series. The Sailor Moon x Pullip debuted in July with the release of Pullip Sailor Moon, since then Sailor Mercury has also been released;  Sailor Venus and Princess Serenity are still currently in the preorder stage. As a big fan of both Pullip and Sailor Moon this series seems destined to destroy my wallet.

Pullip Sailor Moon has a MSRP of 16000 yen, I bought mine for $135 via Pullipstyle. There was a Bandai exclusive version of Pullip Sailor Moon that came with an adorable Luna plush which has since sold out. As cute as the Luna plush was by the time I would have paid for a shopping service and international shipping well that cute little Luna plush would have ended up costing me about an additional $75 versus ordering from Pullipstyle… the Luna plush isn’t that cute.

For Love and Justice, The pretty Sailor suited soldier Sailor Moon!! In the name of the moon I will punish you!!…. Feel Like So.

Pullip News Round Up

sailormercuryandmoon1
General News/Updates

      • In case you missed it last night a promo photo of the next doll in the Sailor Moon x Pullip collaboration has been released. No details have really been revealed yet but take a look at the post anyway as Princess Serenity is gorgeous!
      • New promotional photos featuring Sailor Moon and Sailor Mercury with a primary focus on Sailor Mercury have surfaced via Groove’s blog. I featured some of the photos in this post but definitely check out Groove’s post to see all of them. I think Sailor Mercury looks more well done than Sailor Moon.
      • Owner photos of Pullips Meg and Classical Alice Sepia Version are starting to surface (both dolls are now in stock on Pullipstyle by the way). The more photos I see of Meg the more I want her, she has definitely made her way higher up on my wishlist after seeing more photos of her.
      • Dolly Market is offline this weekend, we have been having intermittent server issues for a while now and are using this time to hopefully resolve the issues once and for all. I will post when the forum is back online.

Shop News/Updates

    • A new coupon code is available for Pullipstyle  it is FALL20 and it is good for $20 off of any order off of $250 or more (before shipping).
    • Pullipstyle just restocked the Pale MIO kits, the make it own doll kits are disappearing quick so if you have plans on doing a custom eventually I wouldn’t delay and wait/hope for a restock otherwise you may end up disappointed.

Contests

  • Pullip.net is running a Halloween themed photo contest, first prize is Pullip Noir! The entry period is from October 10th to 30th, then voting will be on October 31st and the winner will be announced on November 3rd. Besides Pullip Noir there are also three coupons good for 30% off of any purchase on Pullip.net up for grabs. I do have a zombie themed Pullip and a grand love of all things Halloween so I may actually have to enter this one though I don’t expect to win.
  • We are currently up to the third challenge of Dalicious, the theme for this round is vintage. The theme for the second challenge was adventure, take a look at all the great entries here everyone definitely seems to be bringing their a-game especially since JPGroove and Pullipstyle have very generously donated such great prizes!
  • The Dal House forum is also running a contest for a NRFB Dal which you can read more about here.

Other

  • Hoping to get caught up on replying to comments today as well as finishing up some other small updates I have been working on.  If anyone has any suggestions on things I can add to the Pullip FAQ please let me know, I have made it a bit easier to find and put it on the top navigation bar so people can go directly to it.
  • Pullip Sailor Moon will be the next doll I review here. Pullips Aira, La Robe Vert Clair and Aurora are all on the immediate to do list as well. Other dolls in line to get reviews are Isul Romantic King, Taeyang Wayne, Byul Cheshire Cat, Pullip Varele and Dal Hello Little Girl. I also have a few non-Pullip dolls that need reviewing.
  • Since I mentioned it in a past post, I thought I should update that I did indeed pull together funding in time to order the doll I wanted the Latidoll Peter Pan in Steamland. I am beyond delighted to be adding Captain Hook Lea to my growing Lati Yellow army though it’ll probably be a long wait for her ^^;

Sailor Moon x Pullip: Princess Serenity Revealed!

A single promotional photo of Pullip Princess Serenity has surfaced via Groove’s Blog. The doll is based on Princess Serenity which is one of Sailor Moon’s three different identities. For those of you unfamiliar with the series in a nutshell towards the end of the first season it is revealed that Sailor Moon is in fact Princess Serenity, the princess of the moon that the Sailor Senshi were looking for in addition to her also being a modern school girl.

It does seem a bit odd to me that they are releasing a second version of one of the characters before all of the inner soldier senshi are released. I know she’s essentially another doll of a character we have already seen before but what a pretty doll she is! At first glance the face ups look fairly similar but Princess Serenity seems to have much more of an air of sophistication to her and no pleather!

Princess Serenity

Virtually no details are known about this release at this time, as soon as details become available I’ll be sure to update but as of right now there is not any information on price/release date or if she will be a standard release (I will not be happy if she ends up a Bandai shop exclusive).

I look forward to seeing more pictures of her! I’m still holding out a vain hope that Groove will eventually make a Sailor V Pullip or at least a Sailor V costume set that can be purchased separately.

Creator’s Label Pullip Galene

Pullip Galene was released in August of 2012, which I feel was a huge injustice to her as there was such a barrage of Pullips released between July and December of 2012 that a lot of really awesome releases got overlooked because everyone was just so overwhelmed by so many releases at once. Think I’m exaggerating? A total of 23 Pullips were released between July and December 2012 that’s more Pullips released in one six month period than in most years. There were some really interesting and unique releases released during this time that failed to get the proper amount of attention they deserved, Galene was one of those dolls.

Galene was released as a part of the third series of Creator’s Label dolls. Creator’s Label is a series of collaboration dolls where Groove partners with customizers’ from around the world to release a doll based on their customizing works, Galene is the result of a collaboration between SILVERBUTTERFLY and mistubachi@BabyBee. SILVERBUTTERFLY & mistubachi@BabyBee previously collaborated to design the very attractive Taeyang Natsume (if I were to get another Taeyang right now, he would be it!).

I can softly hear that tone riding the wind.For some reason I want to go find that dear sound….Feel Like So. Continue reading
