Pullipstyle has opened up preorders for Pullip Nana-chan and Taeyang Mi-chan Gothic Mode Version on their website. Nana-chan is priced at $127.95 and Mi-chan is priced at $144 both dolls are set for a late December release. Something of note with Mi-chan it appears he actually comes with the white pajamas as well as the plaid outfit set, the limited version which Pullipstyle is not able to offer at this time just comes with the pajamas.
Pullipstyle also just got October’s releases in as well as a big restock shipment, which means I got shipping confirmation for Rozen Maiden 2014 Hina Ichigo and Kirakishou YAY! Soon I will be complete… at least until they announce more Rozen Maiden Pullips.
Also of note, Pullipstyle has really ramped up their social media game and now have a active Facebook page.
In other news, JPGroove has opened up preorders for Princess Serenity. She is priced at $159.99 and is set for a December release.
I think you should add that PullipAsia (www.pullip.asia) has also opened up pre-orders for the new Taeyang Michan and Pullip Nanachan. I do occasionally buy from PullipStyle and HLJ but the cost of shipping really eats up my purse. Now that I found out that Groove has appointed PullipAsia to oversee Pullip sales in Asia (at least that’s what they told me), I think it makes sense for Pullip fans like myself who reside in Asia to buy from them. I think it is a smart move for Groove too.. on one hand you have PullipStyle to cover North America, while on the other you have PullipAsia to cover the Asian market. 😉
While I understand your point, personally I only feel comfortable recommending stores that I myself have ordered from. Like Plasticpop.de I know they are a European dealer but I have never dealt with them directly so I can not speak for them.
