An excerpt from the letter:
Please take a moment to look at our store page (link displayed below) for more details about the doll and her outfit. Please also note, the images shown in the store gallery are of an actual production doll and outfit, not prototypes. A link to the terms and conditions of sale are also available on the store page, please do read them.
Our debut doll Nelson (using the Novantae head sculpt)Nelson is a 16 inch resin fashion doll, with 22 points of articulation. Her resin, which is of the highest quality, is a classic "English Rose" which was exclusively created for Kingdom Doll. She has pale ice blue eyes and a soft make-up palette of peach, muted gold and grey. Her hair, a hard cap wig, has long soft waves of a variegated pale golden blonde.
Nelson is a dressed doll limited to just 60 pieces world wide. She features a faux leather jacket inspired by the Spencer jackets of the 1790's and a strapless empire line gown made from silk chiffon with beautiful gold braid trimmed bodice. Black calf length square toed boots with gold buckle accents, a pair tap shorts and hose complete the outfit.
A stand and a complimentary pair of pose hands are also included!
With the playoffs done, we are just week away from Transformers 4: Age of Extinction movie trailer that will Premier on February 2 at the Super Bowl XLVII. According to the article in AdAge, the trailer is rumored to feature footage from the film. In the past, Bay's teasers were more abstract. Showing us some concepts rather than actually looks at the move. With rumors swirling about the Dinobots leader Grimlock along with the Autobot leader Optimus Prime and Bumblebee appearing, we are hopeful we'll get to see some real metal this time
Maketoys MT-03N The Nemesis project has been announced. Seen as a teaser on Hyper Novea, this is a black recolor and remold of that toy called Nemesis.

This figure is looking extra special with a cloak and chains added for a extra bit of sinister goodness. See the Maketoys MT-03N The Nemesis image below.

With all the awards shows and Superbowl programming going on right now, Steiffgal figured it was about time to roll out the red carpet, Steiff style! And who better to grace such a walkway then true royalty. Check out this tiny but terrific Steiff princess, and see what makes her so interesting from the design and historical perspectives.
Most Steiff collectors would want this mouse in their house! Here we have Steiff's Royal Mouse. She is based on Steiff's standard line Pieps mouse, which was produced from 1958 to 1978 in gray or white. This Pieps is 8 cm, unjointed, and made from white mohair which has been lightly airbrushed with brown on her back and the sides of her face. Her feet, hands, tail, and ears are made from thick white felt which has been highlighted with a touch of pink airbrushing. Her face is detailed with tiny black button eyes, a black bead nose, lots of clear monofilament whiskers, and a hand embroidered black mouth, highlighted with a spot of pink to show her lips (or to perhaps indicate lipstick in this particular edition?!)
Royal Pieps Mouse was one of the earliest specialty dressed mice sold exclusively through FAO Schwarz. This beloved series really started in 1962 with the introduction of two new play sets for kids: a country mouse house, and a city mouse house. Both were portable little dollhouses made from plywood that came fully appointed with furniture and household accessories. These sets appeared in the line until 1972. The country mouse house was detailed in more of a "rural style", while the city mouse house was more "upscale." These sets, which were actually constructed and assembled at FAO Schwarz, each came with one dressed Steiff Pieps mouse. The dressed mice from these sets proved so popular that soon many new models were introduced in the 1965 through 1973 time frame. In addition to Royal Pieps, these adorably attired mice included a ballerina, bride (shown on the left) and groom, princess, clown, Hawaiian dancer, Senorita, ball queen, Little Red Riding Hood, and a Miss America Mouse. The outfits of many of these marvelous mice were lovingly made by hand from lengths of lace, ribbons, and silky materials.
It is interesting to note that Royal Pieps Mouse was not the first crown-wearing Steiff exclusive at FAO Schwarz. Perhaps her design was inspired by the toy store's Royal Dally Dalmatian, who appeared in the line in 1963 only. Royal Dally is pictured here on the left. This princely pup is 14 cm and made from white mohair which is playfully marked with black airbrushed spots. His ears are black mohair. He is in the "begging" position and is head jointed. His face is detailed with black button eyes and a black hand embroidered nose and mouth. And, like Royal Pieps, his lips are also highlighted with a little touch of red airbrushing. Both Royal Pieps and Dally wear similarly styled golden crowns and red capes.
Steiffgal hopes this discussion on Steiff's Royal Pieps Mouse has added a crowning touch to your day.

Toys "R" Us will be carrying an exclusive Marvel Legends box set featuring the original five X-Men in their original costumes, based on their appearances in the All-New X-Men where the group's past selves confront their modern versions thanks to the magic of time-travel.
The set was apparently supposed to retail for US$85 (which would break down to US$17 per figure, a bit over the cost of a normal Marvel Legend) but reports have surfaced that the price has jumped to a whopping US$140! Fan-reaction has been understandably negative, especially considering that the set features very little new tooling.
The set, which goes up for sale in February, currently isn't listed on the Toys "R" Us website although a pre-order page previously existed. It should show up at local retailers where it may wind up being even more than US$140 depending on the awfulness of your local stores.
