    The second line of dolls presented on Saturday by Integrity toys was a new one: 16" dolls with the Poppy Parker Fashion Teen 16" body and more detailed face. Her looks are modern and edgy. She's supposed to be Poppy's grand-daughter, a teen fashion blogger. Vaughn Sawyers introduced the dolls while David Buttry gave us the background history of the character.


    Item #86001
    J'Adore
    Blond Basic Tulabelle™ Doll
    Suggested Retail Price: US $115.00
    Limited Edition of 300 Dolls
    16 inch Doll

    Estimated Delivery Date: Early May 2013





    The first doll is one of two basics.She has a grey striped jersey knit top with a J'Adore graphic (hence the doll name), hot pink mini, pink and purple platform sandals and white ankle socks. Stand and COA included.




    Item #86002
    Violet Femme
    Brunette Basic Tulabelle™ Doll
    Suggested Retail Price: US $115.00
    Limited Edition of 300 Dolls
    16 inch Doll
    Estimated Delivery Date: Early May 2013





    This one looks almost manga to me. She is the second basic doll of the lot. Outfit consists of purple one shouldered jersey tee with black glam rock skull print, black denim shorts, black high-top platforms and white knee socks with purple stripes. Doll stand and certificate of authenticity are included.



    Item #86003
    Yeti to Wear
    Tulabelle™ Dressed Doll
    Suggested Retail Price: US $150.00
    Limited Edition of 300 Dolls
    16 inch Doll
    Estimated Delivery Date: June 2013


    This is the best of the bunch. I would have pre-ordered her if not for budget control (huh). She looks better then the rest, edgy and sophisticated (save that fur blob on her). Again the manga vibe is strong here. Outfit consists of purple and grey faux fur coat, cream lace blouse, black skinny jeans, and over the knee dark eggplant boots with black bow detail. Accessories include an embroidered clutch, black beaded necklace, chain pendant, drop earrings and a large ring. Doll stand and certificate of authenticity included. She is sold out.





    Item #86004
    Pomp and Circumstance
    Tulabelle™ Dressed Doll
    Suggested Retail Price: US $150.00
    Limited Edition of 300 Dolls
    16 inch Doll
    Estimated Delivery Date: Early May 2013



    This one was on DOLLS magazine earlier this month so most people got a taste of the line through her photos. The most eccentric of the bunch. Outfit consists of a faux leopard coat, white pleated sleeveless blouse with a black trim collar, red skinny jeans, red metallic heels, hot pink patent tote, multi-strand necklace, black drop earrings and a matching ring.Doll stand and COA included.





    Item #86005
    Coated in Glamour
    Tulabelle™ Dressed Doll
    Suggested Retail Price: US $150.00
    Limited Edition of 300 Dolls
    16 inch Doll
    Estimated Delivery Date: June 2013




    This one is the second best doll in this collection. I think she's the modern equivalent of Poppy Parker The Happening. Her outfit consists of a gold and blue dress with net overlay, a light blue biker jacket, nude fishnets, and black fur and leather boots. Accessories include a green metallic clutch, silver chain earrings, and a silver and black cuff, bangle and ring. Doll stand and certificate of authenticity are included.




    Item #86006
    Trend Spotted
    Tulabelle™ Dressed Doll
    Suggested Retail Price: US $150.00
    Limited Edition of 300 Dolls
    16 inch Doll
    Estimated Delivery Date: June 2013


    This is the odd one out of the bunch. Her rockabilly-through-80's-for-the-10's look is way out there.She is wearing a lavender sweater with a white collar, acid yellow dotted skirt, black leather jacket, lime fishnets, multicoloured platform boots, and a turquoise bag. Accessories include a turquoise and black brooch, lime and silver bangle and large silver hoop earrings. Doll stand and certificate of authenticity are included.  





    The success of this collection for me is the fact that even though I was prepared not to want anything from it, I really fell for Yeti to Wear. The failure of the collection is that none of the rest matches that doll in style and pizazz  If they continue this towards that direction, I am sure this will be a big hit.

    Max Factory's latest figma is Gon, daddy, Gon screenshot

    Well this came completely out of left field! Somehow Max Factory got their hands on the Hunter x Hunter license, something people were pretty sure Bandai had a firm hold onto after releasing figures for the past decade. Guess this is one of those license exceptions where Bandai can't make articulated figures and Max Factory can't make anything but. Whatever magic is at work here I'm pretty excited knowing I'll soon be able to add an awesome Gon Freecss figma to my collection!

    Taking a closer look between the two pics we're being teased with we can gleam a few details. For starters it looks like we'll be getting two version's of Gon's trusty fishing pole, both collapsed and extended, and two face parts. The backpack is likely removable as well. So far, so good, there aren't a lot of really fitting accessories he could come with. A third face with his blank confused expression and a Hunter's License would pretty much top things off for me. My one and only complaint is that his hair seems a lot higher than it should be.

    Early word is that he'll be released not too far off in June for ¥3,500. I know a lot of people are looking forward to this release, some saying it's dragging them back into buying figma and others saying this will be their first. Hopefully that translates into sales strong enough to get us at least a Killua figma. Maybe Kurapika and Hisoka, too? Hell, I'd buy a Leorio figma, why not? Bring on more Shonen Jump figma while you're at it!

    Oh, and my apologies to the Violent Femmes for the title pun.

    More Marvel Select Rhino photos screenshot

    DST's Marvel Select Rhino may still be on the way, but more photos have arrived on the Art Asylum site. This latest gallery shows off Rhino's somewhat limited articulation in an array of otherwise neat photos displaying everything from a brawl with Colossus to some of Spider-Man's hi-jinks. While I'm still really enthusiastic over the sculpting, I must admit that Rhino's charging poses look disappointingly awkward with the turned torso joint.

    Rhino is mentioned as shipping this week so there's a very good chance we'll all be on safari in February. If you still have dollar ammo for your pre-order gun, there's still a chance to bag this trophy to mount on that shelf on your wall.

    Steiffgal's not sure what the weather's like where you are, but around these parts it's nothing but grey, grey, and grey... mixed with alot of cold!  So imagine her delight when she opened her inbox to find this SUPER COLORFUL... and tropical... Steiff inquiry awaiting! Check out this note from a reader who asks about a longstanding and life sized family treasure.  Merrill writes:

    "Hello Steiffgal,

    I have a large Steiff Parrot which we bought at FAO Schwarz in New York for one of my sons, some forty plus years ago.  I'm intending to sell it because he no longer has any interest in keeping it.  I am enclosing some photos I've taken so you can see what it looks like.

    I have been unable to find any information on a large Steiff parrot, 34" in length, and wonder if you have ever seen it before.   It does have a Steiff button on one wing tip and you can tell from the photo that it's beak has deteriorated over the years.

    I've been in contact with a person who seems to know how to go about repairing it but that is all I've been able to accomplish so far.  Were many made?  Was it done specially for FAO Schwarz?


    Thank you!
    Merrill"


    Well, bird's the word when it comes to this great parrot!  What we have here is Steiff's Papagei Ara or Ara Parrot.  He is a studio, or life sized, treasure and measures 50 cm (without the tail) and about 85 cm with the tail.  He is standing made from mohair and felt.  His facial mask and beak area are made from a rubbery material which tends to disintegrate over time.  Ara came in two main colors - red or blue.  Merrill's appears to be the red version.  Ara was produced for one year only, in 1967.  You can see what Ara looked like when he was new in the photo on the left, which is taken from Gunther Pfeiffer's 1947-2003 Sortiment Book.


    In terms of rarity, yes, this big bird is quite elusive!  Steiffgal has never actually seen one in person.  Because he was made for one year only, compounded by his complicated and detailed assembly, Steiffgal would think that very few were actually produced and sold in the mid 1960's.  He was in the general line and not an exclusive to any particular retailer.  However, it does not surprise Steiffgal that he was purchased at FAO Schwarz.  This US retailer has always had a special relationship with Steiff and has a long tradition of getting "first dibs" at the best and most outstanding Steiff inventory - like this life sized parrot!

    Sadly, over time, Ara has lost his beak and part of his facial mask.  Steiffgal has seen this happen in another rare and life sized bird from 1967 - an owl.  Both beaks were made from a material which tends to dry out, crack, and disfigure over time.  Steiffgal understands and respects that some collectors are comfortable with restoration and some are not.  However, in the case of the owl, because the beak is such an integral part of the presentation, Steiffgal did recommend restoration.  You can see the before and after pictures above; the talented Martha Anderson of www.Teddybearrepair.com replaced the owl's beak with a carefully modeled and painted piece of leather.  Steiffgal would recommend the same course of action for Merrill's parrot, given how rare and majestic it is.

    Steiffgal hopes this discussion on Merrill's parrot has added a spot of color to your day!

    The fourth and final line presented at the on-line event was the one most anticipated, as an ad had run in DOLLS magazine (much like Tulabelle) and also previewed at the 2012 convention and the W Club. Furthermore it had the success of last year's Sabrina line to buoy it. The result left all fans breathless. To me it is the best collection ever presented by Integrity Toys - and the one most likely to break us financially. Six dolls, most in giftsets of two to three outfits each and one more as the event doll that will be allocated to lucky W Club member via lottery. Each doll is only 400 pieces so it was only natural some would be sold out. If the prices were lower, I bet all would already be sold out.
    This time Integrity did not use one sculpt only for the main character. It also did not give us only one character. A variety of sculpts and bodies were used with great success. Needless to say that after the event, I watched the film again, spotting the outfits in the film and enjoying the incredible talent that created it. But enough rambling, let's see the dolls!

    Item # 14011
    Take The Picture!
    Dressed Doll
    The Funny Face Collection
    Limited Edition of 400 Dolls
    Suggested Retail Price: US $150.00
    Estimated Delivery Date: Week of February 11th, 2013


    The iconic moment in the film that Audrey is running down the steps below the statue of the Winged Victory of Samothrace in the Louvre, shouting to Fred Astaire "Take The Picture". There were two previous incarnations of the outfit on dolls, one by Mattel for a convention and one by Madame Alexander in 16" size. It is a magnificent reproduction. And the moment means a lot to me as this is my favourite sculpture in the world.



    "Take The Picture!" is a 12" fully articulated vinyl doll with rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes featuring Integrity's Poppy Parker body (with kitten heel foot) and the original Vanessa Perrin head sculpt (i.e. Vanessa 1.0). The outfit consists of a long form-fitted red satin gown, dramatic white opera gloves, a jewellery set, matching kitten heels and a bright red chiffon shawl. It also includes an alternate set of hands, a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. Magnifique!



    Item # 14012
    Think Pink
    Dressed Doll Mini-Gift Set
    The Funny Face Collection
    Limited Edition of 400 Dolls
    Suggested Retail Price: US $150.00
    Estimated Delivery Date: Week of February 11th, 2013


    One of the most memorable musical numbers in the film is "Think Pink" with the indomitable Kay Thompson (more about her later). So it was only natural that one outfit at least would be selected. Well, guess again: there are two. The 12" fully articulated vinyl doll has rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes and sports the FR: Monogram body (with Victoire Roux legs) and the Imogen head sculpt. The first look in the set (which is worn by a dancer in the film, when a bunch of painters change the colours of the office doors to pink and ladies appear to dance among them) is composed of a two-piece bright pink business suit with a white pill-box hat, short gloves and matching shoes. You can see it in the photo below, on the far right.



    The doll is evoking the model Sunny Harnett who appears in the film along more famous models Suzy Parker and Dovima (who has a speaking role). Suzy appears with many outfits in the sequence but most notably the second outfit of this gift set  This look is composed of a pink satin two-piece gown with a transformable pink faux fur peplum that turns into a cape, as shown in the film.  Pink opera length gloves, bright pink satin shoes and a jewellery set complete the outfit. It also includes an alternate set of hands, a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity.






    Wish I had the car to go with the doll!


    Item # 14013
    The Quality Woman
    Dressed Doll Gift Set
    The Funny Face Collection
    Limited Edition of 400 Dolls
    Suggested Retail Price: US $199.00
    Estimated Delivery Date: Week of February 11th, 2013





    As mentioned above, Kay Thompson (as Maggie Prescott) is the actress that sings "Think Pink". A veritable force of nature, Ms. Prescott was a multi-talented artist, with only five films, lots of jazz singing and of course writer of the Eloise books. She was a musical coach in MGM and was loaned to Paramount for Funny Face (along with most of the cast and crew). This gift set (named after her ideal woman to represent her magazine, Quality) gives us three of her outfits in the film, unfortunately not the best ones. I am posting stills from the film so you can see the outfits as worn by her, above is the blue and beige one. I think the shirt colour is not a  match.



    You can see the black and white ensemble above. I love that they have the accessories down pat. Her hair could have had less volume though.



    The third one is the grey suit in "Think Pink". The shape marks the transition from the "New Look" sharp waist to the more boxy "Trapeze" and "A-line" silhouette of the late fifties and early sixties.


    So what about the doll? "The Quality Woman" is a 12" fully articulated vinyl doll with rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes featuring Integrity's Victoire Roux body and Katy Perry sculpt (I asked about it in the on-line event!) in the role of Maggie Prescott. The set of three looks also features two pairs of shoes, gloves, three hats, a purse and a jewellery set. It also includes an alternate set of hands, a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity.


    I think they could have missed the two-piece ensembles and have done the following two:



    Or even the two shown below:

    On How To Be Lovely
    Dressed Doll Gift Set
    The Funny Face Collection
    Limited Edition of 400 Dolls
    Suggested Retail Price: US $199.00
    Estimated Delivery Date: Week of February 11th, 2013






    "On How To Be Lovely" indeed! Could not have chosen a better name! Three outfits here and all incredible. The doll has rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes featuring Integrity's Poppy Parker body and the new Veronique Perrin sculpt (who looks uncanilly here like Michelle Dockery who plays Lady Mary in Downton Abbey) . This gift set is composed of three complete looks as worn by the character of Jo Stockton in the film: the pink cape and white column dress worn in her transformation scene (above), the delicate wedding outfit worn during the photo shoot with Fred Astaire and at the finale of the show and the film and also the yellow dress worn in the fashion show (below). This set also features the accessories to finish the looks and of course the bridal bouquet. It also includes an alternate set of hands, a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. 





    I wish we had more photos of the bridal gown, the actual dress from the film has so many details!

    Limited Edition of 400 Dolls
    Suggested Retail Price: US $199.00

    Another Jo gift set! More outfits! "Bonjour, Paris!" is a 12" fully articulated vinyl doll with rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes featuring Integrity's Poppy Parker body and the original Veronique Perrin (i.e Vero 1.0) sculpt in the role of Jo Stockton. This gift set is composed of three complete looks as worn by the character of Joe Stockton in the film. This set also features accessories to finish these gorgeous looks and a bouquet of miniature balloons to recreate the iconic Parisian photo shoot scene at Champs Élysées   It also includes an alternate set of hands, a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. The outfits are:

    1. "Beautiful" dress and cloak. They missed the matching scarf though.





    2. Catching a fish outfit - looks divine!



    3. Balloon dress at Champs Élysées - it even has the balloons!

    A Woman Who Thinks
    Dressed Doll Mini-Gift Set
    The Funny Face Collection
    Limited Edition of 400 dolls
    Suggested Retail Price: US $150.00
    Estimated Delivery Date: Week of February 11th, 2013




    The best doll of the bunch strangely enough is not one of the Jo Stocktons but the one portraying Marion, or better yet, Dovima, the iconic 50's model who was and Avedon muse (she is in the famous elephant photo of his) and plays a parody of herself in the film, down to the comic she reads in a scene (she had a huge collection). "A Woman Who Thinks" is a 12" fully articulated vinyl doll featuring the FR: Monogram body (with Victoire Roux legs) and the Anja head sculpt in the role of Marion. Anja looks amazing as Dovima! This mini-gift set is composed of two complete looks as worn by the character of Marion in the film - the black scalloped neckline dress and the yellow full skirted one (the She-bop as they call it in the film). The set also features the accessories to finish these looks (unfortunately no comic or statue, LOL). It also includes an alternate set of hands, a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. 





    There is no image available on-line for this one, I had to make my own capture from the DVD!



    And there was one more doll - the event doll. Another Jo Stockton one, but only available to W Club members through lottery. I entered the lottery and hope to win.

    Item #14016
    Let's Kiss And Make Up
    Dressed Doll Gift Set 

    The Funny Face Collection
    2013 W Club Exclusive Lottery Doll 

    Suggested Retail Price: US $199.00 US

    Limited Edition of 400 Dolls
    Estimated Delivery Date: Week of February 11th, 2013


    "Let's Kiss And Make Up" is a 12" fully articulated vinyl doll featuring Integrity's Poppy Parker body and the closed mouth Vanessa Perrin sculpt (i.e. Vanessa 2.0, looking even more like Michelle Dockery than Vero's  2.0 sculpt does) in the role of Jo Stockton. The set is composed of three complete looks as worn by the character of Jo Stockton in the film: The Anna Karenina photo shoot suit, the yellow flower shop dress and the beige fashion show suit. This set also features the accessories to finish these looks: three beautiful hats, a travel purse, three pairs of shoes, a rose bouquet, a faux-mink coat, an umbrella (non-working) and the little dog of course! It also includes an alternate pair of hands, a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. Here are the outfits:

    1. The Anna Karenina train station suit:



    2. The flower shop dress:



    3. The beige suit from the fashion show (umbrella included but does not open):





    So many dolls, so many dresses such an extraordinary collection. I'm going for broke trying to get them all and hope to manage it. Audrey is one of my muses and icons and it is a perfect homage to her and to this visually brilliant film.

    Most film stills and valuable information for the film's costumes came from this lovely blog.
