Now that I'm in love with this body, what am I supposed to do with my other dolls?

I hate to start off a blog post with the word CRAP but I'm in love with the FR2 body. This is a problem and a puzzlement. There's no way to replace even a fraction of my collection with the new body. Should I retire them? Seriously, this body is amazing - the best 12" body ever. The only problem is that we can't get replacement ones and the feet are too long. A rational doll collector (are there any?) would say to just keep the collections separate. That's kind of impossible. My dolls are begging for new bodies now. CRAP.

Anyway...how gorgeous is this? Vanessa is wearing a little dress from a much earlier doll. Many of the clothes fit beautifully. It's the shoes that are hit and miss (mostly miss.)



And this:


The doll is Aerodynamic Vanessa re-rooted by Susan Korba, (the Magnificent.) She is borrowing a Dasha body and wearing a Dasha gown and shoes. Sitting, reclining and standing are all done beautifully with this body. Can it get better? Yes. Sell us bodies!

  3. CRAP is right. I've already bought 5 extra bodies. I really wish I could just buy the dolls seperately. I'm lucky that I only had a small collection of older FR dolls.

  4. Wouldn't it be great if Integrity would do a Mannequin FR2 doll (much like Tonner did with Antoinette)that comes with a simple ponytail or straight/middle part hair, no face-up or screening and arrives in a bare-bones box (no stand) for about the same price as the Antoinette Mannequin (50.00-60.00)!?
    They could offer regular CC and AA skintones as well as a Latina skin tone with different hair color combos... I bet they would sell out faster than they could keep them produced!!

    I bet they would FLY off the site uber quick!!!

  6. I went through this with Mattel with the Pivotal bodies VS the Model Muse. Very frustrating. Personally, I think all of the bodies should be for sale. It's a win win situation. We get what we want and they make extra money without even having to really lift a finger or spend extra money on marketing or design.

  8. @edmondlives: Where can I get a few Pivotal bodies? Even that confuses me. Apparently I'm easily confused. LOL.
