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).
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.
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.
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 ^^;
