Groove made a couple of announcements via their blog over the past few days, the announcements were about the start of a new line of “Premium” dolls which are supposed to have nicer materials/designs than the originals the first doll in the new line is said to be a new version of Pullip Kiyomi. I’m cautiously optimistic about this, the regeneration series of dolls were originally said to be new updated versions of classic Pullip releases and well instead of being inspired by the original dolls they were more or less rereleases just with the newer headsculpt/body.
Also of note, this year marks the ten year anniversary of Dal and Taeyang maybe we will see special models to commemorate their anniversary? Pullip Ally was released to celebrate Pullip’s tenth anniversary so maybe if special models are released they would be nicely priced basic dolls. I hope Groove uses this as an excuse to release the Stepsister Dal from the Cinderella line in a different color scheme.
In other news….
The latest doll in the Sailor Moon x Pullip collaboration line is now up for preorder via Pullipstyle. Dal Princess Small Lady is priced at $130 and will be released at the end of the month.
Isul Petit Prince is now available for purchase via Pullipstyle he is priced at $150. Isul Petit Prince is based on the title character of the beloved children’s classic Le Petit Prince. His clothing is designed by Alice & the Pirates which is a sub-brand of Baby, the Stars Shine Bright. He is just the first doll in the series, he will be joined in subsequent months by Pullips Fox and Rose. Even though he is quite pricey I couldn’t resist ordering him, PS was only able to secure a small amount similar to when they had Alura in stock for a micro-second and I fear he will likely sell out quickly as well.
