The Regeneration series of dolls debuted in 2012. The series was described by Groove to be the result of many requests by fans to have a new version of popular older releases made. The Regenerated Pullips have faithfully recreated stock unfortunately most of the dolls of the dolls that inspired the Regenerations dolls were Type 2 Pullips who had much larger feet than Type 4 Pullips so shoe fit may be an issue depending on the release. Though the makeup of the original releases was faithfully recreated Pullip’s face mold has subtly changed over the years so the Regenerated dolls have a bit of a different appearance even if they have the same face up, here is a side by side comparison of Principessa and Regeneration Principessa’s face ups so you can get an idea of how they compare.
The lined debuted in March of 2012 with the simultaneous releases of Regeneration Fantastic and Regeneration Fanatica .

Note- Some of the early Pullips had shiny faces notably all of the Type 1 and some early Type 2 Pullips had shiny faces, the Regeneration series recreated this effect so both Regeneration Noir and Regeneration Moon have shiny faces all of the other dolls have matte faces.
