It’s been a while since I have actually blogged new Pullip releases as they were announced but I am really excited about July’s releases so here we go…
Merl is the Pullip release for July, her price is 12,600 yen which is currently about $155 luckily Pullipstyle is normally able to offer them at better prices than I would be able to get via importing.
I really like her a lot, though I will admit I have a weakness for dolls with a nautical theme in general. She reminds me of a grown up Jolie!
I really like her face up, it suits her really well she isn’t overly done up.
Lir is July’s Isul release, he is dressed up to match his big sister Merl!
I was pretty adamant about not wanting anymore Isuls but this boy may break my resolve.
Chenille du Jardin is the dal release for July.
I absolutely love all things Alice in Wonderland, even though I literally own dozens of different Alice-themed dolls I have never really seen a caterpillar doll before and I have to say this is just about the most hysterical yet adorable thing ever and I am more excited about this release than I have been about any other this year.
It’s kind of funny, I was gifted a doll sized hookah a couple of years ago just in case I ever actually got a caterpillar doll of some sort and well she is just perfect!
She has a little bit of a different face up style than most dals, I believe this is the first dal release with freckles. She also has super blushy cheeks.
The last release in July is Regeneration Noir. I don’t think I have mentioned the new line of Regeneration dolls here, they are rereleases of beloved older releases. Groove originally described them as being renewed versions of the dolls, which I think had the potential of being really cool instead we basically got reissues of the same dolls they are now just on the type 4 body! I have kind of mixed feelings about the Regeneration dolls…
The Regeneration dolls are all limited to 500 each, I suspect that Noir will sell out lightning fast as she has always been a really popular doll.
Looking at the promo pictures she just doesn’t seem to have the same charm as the original to me. The original dolls all seemed to have a lot of character especially the earlier type 1s with their handpainted face ups these new ones just devoid of character.
