August Pullip Releases

I was about to blog the newly announced September Pullip releases when I realized that somehow I never blogged the August Pullip releases. Three dolls have been announced for August: Pullip Io, Dal Loa and Taeyang Valko all three of the releases have an animal theme this time around (some more subtle than others).

Pullip Io
P102_2
Like the blue sky, Like the green forest, Like the pitch black night… Wearing colors and stepping out with excited… Feel Like So.
Pullip Io has a peacock motif. Her MSRP is 14,700 Yen but you can preorder her at Pullipstyle for a bit cheaper than that- here.

I actually quite like her, she reminds me a bit of Aquel almost like a grown up version. She lost a lot of zest compared to the prototype but she is still a gorgeous doll.

The original prototype picture for anyone curious, I assume it would have been too cost prohibitive to produce her in the more elaborate stock. She certainly looked more like a peacock in the prototype.

Dal Loa

Peerow…..Peerow…. I’m a singing bird…. I am going to wait for you again today and sing!!

Dal Loa has a canary theme. Her MSRP is 14,700 yen but is available at Pullipstyle for a bit cheaper – here.

I really love her face up, I love the eye make up and all the pink tones. I also love her two-toned wig. Not such a big fan of her stock, it looks a bit rough or unfinished ^^;

The original prototype looked a lot more polished but I find that the I like the dal itself better in the release version even if I prefer the prototype’s stock.
Taeyang Valko

I’m going to be strong under the white moon in the night…. See, here I am.
Taeyang Valko is a wereworlf- scary! His MSRP is 16,800 yen so he is a bit pricier than the girls, he is available for preorder at Pullipstyle – here.

I’m actually really impressed with Valko, I love his stock and all the little fur touches (hopefully faux fur) and the scar on the nose is just perfection. If I collected boys he would be a must have!

Verdict: I’ll definitely get Io at some point and probably get Loa as well, probably going to skip Valko though…he has an interesting design but I find I just don’t like boy dolls as much ^^;

    Ha! This is a perfect example of what we were just talking about in your previous post. When they released the pictures of the prototypes for Loa and Io I knew I had to have them. I was even happy to spend more on them if they could keep them close to the prototypes. But they made major changes to the dolls and I have to admit it makes me a bit sad.

    That said, I stll think they turned out lovely and I agree some of the new details are better. In the end I think the vision they were going for really won me over and I hope to preorder them both.

    Also seeing as this is supposed to be inspired by the Greek gods I would love to see a Medusa Pullip… I know a bit far fetched for this line but you can dream right.
