New Pullip Rozen Maiden Suigintou announced for May 2014

Groove announced a new version of Suigintou via their blog earlier this morning. Suigintou is from the anime Rozen Maiden, Jun Planning previously collaborated with Rozen Maiden to make a series of dolls starting back in 2006 it was the first major anime collaboration for Pullip. So far this year, of the fifteen dolls announced and/or released only six of them are original dolls ie. not collaboration and of those six one looks like an unofficial collaboration and one of the others is a recolor of a previously released doll.

Collaboration dolls are great in moderation but I remember at the time of the original Rozen Maiden’s series release that a lot of people in the community seemed upset that so many collabs were released and dominated most of the release dates for the year, now here we are again six years later. Is Groove going to re-release the entire series? Given how long some of the dolls took to sold out that doesn’t seem wise on their part especially since at least one of the dolls Hina Ichigo is still available nearly eight years after release. Personally, I love Rozen Maiden and it’s what got me into Pullips but I think I’d rather see new original releases.

2014 Suigintou

She has a MSRP of 16000 yen (the original had a MSRP of 12000 yen). While she does look more detailed than the original, she does not appear to come with any accessories unless of course you order through TBS where you get a bonus feather if you order before the 20th of April. The original came with a sword.

2007 Suigintou

I’ll be sure to update as soon as more photos become available. Currently she is only available for preorder via TBS. TBS is the official goods shop of Rozen Maiden so at this time I assume that like Sparrow and Shinku, Suigintou will not be exclusive to them but they seem to have the right to list her for preorder first.

    Mmnnnn…I actually don’t like this updated version of Suigintou :/
    Especially when her original accessories are not included this time around….

    I’ll stick with my original purple-esqe Suigintou ❤
    Thank you again for keeping us updated on the new releases ^__^

      She looks more detailed than the original but I have mixed feelings about the release in general, she’s a nice doll but I already have a Suigintou I’d rather see something new and original.

        Mmnnn…the details are there, but I’m more comfortable with the original release of Suigintou, since she truly does resemble more of the anime version. And I Love her purple-esqe wardrobe than the black n white combination. However, I also like your imput on her release too….it seems too unoriginal if a choice to release anyhow.

    She is so pretty:) I hope they will regenerate all the rozen maiden pullips. It’s just the inverted cross on her dress might cause some skeptics with my parents…

      She is! Hina Ichigo is still available at PS almost seven years after release, the twins took almost five years to sell out as well so I don’t know how wise it would be for Groove to re-release all the dolls.

        Well these ones are much cute in my opinion, maybe they will be more popular…. Shinku was really popular, so the regenerated shinku will probs sell out quickly
