  • 02/10/13--09:28: Toy Fair New York 2013
  • It's begun again. Does anyone wonder why there is almost always a major snowstorm before or during Toy Fair? It's New York; it's the middle of February.  That should provide a clue. But the Fair goes on.

    If you want pictures, IdleHandsBlog is your best bet. His blog, http://idlehands1.blogspot.com will keep you up-to-date. He also tweets  Twitter.com/nomadixxx and his Flickr Photostream is loaded.

    Here's the link to the new stuff:  Toy Fair 2013 

    Here are examples of the photographs some of us fashion doll collectors may appreciate. They are obviously manufacturer photographs with his logo superimposed. These dolls will be available later this year.

  • 02/10/13--10:13: Mel Odom: A New Doll?
  • Very exciting news just out: Mel Odom has teamed up with Jamieshow Dolls and FDQ in a new venture. It will be a doll. Jamieshow dolls are resin. Mel does Gene. So will this be a resin Gene? One can only hope. Gene collectors are just now reviving from fainting at the news.

    If you want to be one of the first to see the doll and hear more about the future line (?), you will have to go to Orlando, Florida in April. Perhaps I'll see you there.

    When:

    Saturday April 13, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM EDT

    Where:

    DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel at Universal
    5780 Major Blvd.
    Orlando, FL 32819


    Lunch with Mel Odom 

    Come celebrate Gene's 18th Birthday with Mel Odom. Hosted by JAMIEshow Dolls and FDQ Magazine.  Join us for a two hour luncheon featuring guest of honor Mel Odom, as he talks about Gene Marshall and announces a new collaborative effort with JAMIEshow Dolls.  This is Mel's first public appearance since the retirement of Gene Marshall in 2010. Meet and greet Mel in person, and watch a history of the Gene through the eyes of Mr. Odom. We will be presenting a special new Ltd. Edition doll at the event, which will be available for purchase and to take home!

    Mel Odom’s art first attained prominence in the mid-1970s with a series of exotic illustrations done for glossy magazines.  These pencil and watercolor drawings soon attracted assignments from art directors of other magazines, leading to a seventeen year, free-lance relationship with Playboy magazine, and covers for Time and Omni magazines as well as countless books. During this period, a successful line of posters and greeting cards using Mel’s iconic images was published by paper Moon Graphics.
    In 1995 Mel retired from illustration and focused on a three-dimensional project, a fashion doll for adults named Gene Marshall.   Gene’s story of being a movie star during the 1940s and 50s was irresistible to collectors, and within a year of her 1995 launch at Toy Fair, Gene was in fact a star.  Bits of her story came with each doll and costume and in 2000 her lavishly illustrated biography: “Gene Marshall, Girl Star” was published by Hyperion Press.  Gene has been voted in Doll Reader the most influential doll since Barbie.

    Note: A full sit down luncheon will be served with three meal options. Choose meal options at registration.  Click below to register.

    Event Cost is $65.00
    Event is limited to a Maximum 150 people.
    We are sorry absentee packages are not available.

    This stunningly detailed custom-made doll was created by DeviantART member Katyok. His costume was made to resemble the Kansai Yamamoto design that David wore in the famous Sukita photosession. This was made in honor of David’s 66th birthday.

    The two top fashion lines for Tonner Doll are Precarious, which is the more recent, edgy one, and Antoinette, which is the younger but fashion forward line. I am grouping them together as they both had the smallest number of new releases this time. Oh, they do share the same body as well.


    Tamed
    Price: $199.99
    Availability: Reserve yours now!
    T13PRDD01
    LE 300


    The Precarious Tamed dressed doll has the Precarious™ head sculpt on the Antoinette™ body with a Cameo skin tone. She has green painted eyes with applied eyelashes and mink non-removable wigged saran hair. She wears a green velvet bodysuit under a green velvet burnout jacket and skirt. To complete the look, she has a green beaded necklace, metallic green faux leather gloves with mesh backing, green tights, nude pantyhose and a pair of green faux leather shoes. She comes with a stand.


    She is a beautiful doll. I love the colours both of the doll and the outfit. The cut of the outfit is not that great for me though, although the devoré velvet is gorgeous. She should have had a pair of earrings (preferably long ones) and a nice bag to complete this. Bags are really missing from Tonner outfits. Robert, are you listening? For these prices, they should be part of the outfit. The shoes are a bit tame for this look.


    Think Pink Basic doll
    Price: $124.99
    Availability: Reserve yours now!
    T13PRBD01
    LE 500


    The Precarious basic doll has the Precarious™ head sculpt on an Antoinette™ body with the Cameo skin tone. She has brown painted eyes with applied eyelashes and white removable wigged synthetic hair. She wears a pale pink bodysuit with metallic print, pale pink elastic strap platform shoes and pink metallic sunglasses. She comes with a stand.


    Cute in an edgy way but nothing special. For a basic doll she is really good though.



    Savage Basic Antoinette™
    Price: $109.99
    Availability: Reserve yours now!
    T13FMBD01
    LE 400


    The Antoinette basic doll has the Antoinette™ head sculpt on an Antoinette™ body with the Cameo skin tone. She has hazel painted eyes and brown rooted saran hair. She wears a leopard print bodysuit over nude pantyhose, gold faux leather shoes and gold sunglasses. She comes with a stand.


    The Antoinette line has only one basic doll and no dressed ones. She is a beautiful doll, with a lovely face and luscious hair. She should have had applied eyelashes though.


    Enticing - Outfit only
    Price: $99.99
    Availability: Reserve yours now!
    T13FMOF02
    LE 200


    There are two outfits for the line. They fit dolls such as Antoinette™, Cami & Jon™ but also Precarious. This one is a gold lamé dress with sequinned lace overlay and feathered skirt. It comes with gold shimmer tights and gold glitter shoes.


    It is not my style but I love the feather skirt. Pity they did not release a close up of the shoes.

    Fanciful - Outfit
    Price: $149.99
    Availability: Reserve yours now!
    T13FMOF01
    LE 200


    The second outfit is a blue/purple iridescent semi-open back gown with flower and beaded decoration on the bodice and tiered skirt layers with a ruffle trim. Under the skirt is a white crinoline petticoat to keep the volume. It comes with matching faux leather shoes and beaded cluster earrings.


    This one is quite an extravaganza! It reminds me of John Galliano's Dior gowns. It has lots of fabric, that is probably the reason for the pricing.

    As reported here at the Bat-Blog awhile back, the Mattel Toy Company has plans to release a special set of RETRO BARBIE AND KEN DOLLS dressed as Catwoman (Julie Newmar) and Batman (Adam West) from the 1966 TV Series. Now, when they say "retro" what they mean is that the dolls look like the vintage-style that was made back in the 1960's. Here is a photo of the dolls that will be released later this year. We don't have an exact release date right now but stay tuned to the Bat-Blog and as soon as we know, you will know.

    By the way, this image shown here is also a BATMAN TOYS Wallpaper background you can use to brighten your Desktop, click on it for a larger version & please enjoy.

    OK, This is pretty awesome bat-news! Over at the CHIPKIDD.COM website we just got the word that a book publishing company in Barcelona, Spain called “Ecc Ediciones” will be publishing Chip Kidd and Dave Taylor’s BATMAN: DEATH BY DESIGN (DC Comics) into a foreign language edition! The new title will be called, “Batman: Arquitectura Mortal”. They have even created a really nice Book Trailer Video which you can see down below. We’re not really sure of an exact release date but it is due in 2013 and I have seen some foreign reviews already.

    Cami & Jon is the youthful fashion line for Tonner Dolls. It must be popular as it had the largest number of dolls and outfits in it, plus a new sculpt, an Asian character. There are three basic dolls, one dressed doll and four outfits!


    Summer Swing Cami dressed doll
    Price: $169.99
    Availability: Reserve yours now!
    T13CJDD01
    LE 300


    The only dressed doll is a Cami head sculpt on an Antoinette™ body with the Cameo skin tone. She has brown painted eyes and flame red rooted saran hair, Her outfit consists of a pink and red tank dress, nude pantyhose with attached panties, antiqued gold sunglasses, a bag with pink multi-dot design and a pair of pink faux leather shoes. She comes with a stand.


    She looks fantastic but why oh why don't we have a face pic without the sunglasses? How is someone supposed to buy a doll without seeing her face? This time though there is A BAG! Finally! And a cute one too! Fab shoes.



    All Star Cami Basic
    Price: $124.99
    Availability: Reserve yours now!
    T13CJBD01
    LE 500


    The first basic doll is Cami on the Antoinette™ body with the Cameo skin tone. She has painted blue/grey eyes and a pale blonde saran wig. She is wearing red shorts with black stitching, a black tank top with a black and white stripe star decoration and red stitching and black elastic strap shoes with a red platform. She comes with a stand.


    The "theme" running through this collection seems to be navy inspired with all the stars and stripes. Very cute.


    All Star Jon Basic
    Price: $124.99
    Availability: Reserve yours now!
    T13CJBD02
    LE 500


    The second basic doll is Jon on the Antoinette™ body with the Honey skin tone. She has painted brown eyes and a chestnut saran wig. She wears black shorts with a white star decoration and red stitching, a red and white striped shirt with black stitching and black elastic strap shoes with a red platform. She comes with a stand.


    I like the previous outfit better but this wig colour is way more beautiful. All the outfits of the basic dolls plus one of the separate outfits could really mix and match.


    All Star Liu Liu Basic
    Price: $124.99 
    Availability: Reserve yours now!
    T13CJBD03
    LE 500


    The third basic doll is a new Asian head sculpt, Liu Liu, on an Antoinette™ body with the Cameo skin tone. She has painted brown eyes and a black saran wig. She wears black and white striped shorts with red stitching, a black and white shirt with red star decorations and red stitching, and black elastic strap shoes with a red platform. She comes with a stand.


    Tonner always does great Asian sculpts and this one is no exception. I might be getting her if she is released in a dressed doll version, although I do not have another doll with this body. She is smiling too! Love her.


    All Star Business - Outfit
    Price: $99.99
    Availability: Reserve yours now!
    T13CJOF03
    LE 300


    The first of four outfits is the one that I wrote above, that matches the ones from the basic dolls. It consists of a tan and black stripe skirt, a tan bodysuit with star decoration and black and red trim, a red faux leather belt, a red jacket with black trim and gold buttons and black elastic strap platform shoes.


    Two things: it needed a bag (to really mean business  and the shoes should have been different than the basci doll ones. Spectator pumps maybe.



    Night Delight - Outfit
    Price: $99.99
    Availability: Reserve yours now!
    T13CJOF01
    LE 300


    The second outfit consists of a green, orange, and gold lace dress with a ruffled bodice, a metallic bronze faux leather belt, orange tights, gold bracelets, gold rhinestone earrings and gold faux leather shoes with a sculpted heel.


    The lace detail is amazing. I like the colours as well, the Autumn palette.


    The shoes look a bit weird, like they are spray painted. Are the heels bendy? I hope the production pair is better than this one.

    Purple Haze - Outfit
    Price $89.99
    Availability: Reserve yours now!
    T13CJOF04
    LE 300


    The third outfit is a light purple lace ruffle dress. It comes with gold faux leather shoes, a gold spiral bracelet and matching gold spiral necklace.


    This looks cute (but almost like a knit dress). The winners here are the bracelet and necklace. They look like Greek world renowned jeweller Zolotas would have designed them. 


    A Day Away - Outfit
    Price: $99.99
    Availability: Reserve yours now!
    T13CJOF02
    LE 300


    The last outfit consists of a black jacket with faux fur cuffs and a black patent leather belt, cream and gold rib knit hooded sweater with black faux fur trim, black velveteen stirrup pants and black faux leather boots with faux fur trim.


    This is the odd one out - a winter ensemble in a summer collection. But it looks really good and funky. I bet it will be a hit. This Cami & Jon collection is one of the best ever.
