I cannot tell who is who. Agnes should have a very sour look on her face and yet they look the same.  The dolls do have different body types and different vinyl tones.
The dual stand is interesting but not a reason to buy.
My favorite thing about this set is their hair style.  
Least favorite - everything else.

  1. I think this is a great set at a good price. I don't like the skimpy, goth, black outfits and I have to admit, I also did not know at first glance who is who. Agnes doesn't look bitchy enough :) But at $100 a doll, it is still a great set with tons of redress possibilities.

  2. The disclaimer is the best part: "colors and textures may vary slightly. Any staging props are not included. Case and doll stand pictures are digitally rendered".... Seriously, I don't want to be cynical, I mean "astute" but... everything is floating on a sea of white... no kidding Dick Tracy that everything is 'digitally rendered' and what 'texture" the black lace? What props? The shoes... #boring #decaleyes

    1. The net covering their faces totally looks photoshopped too.

  3. I was wodering if their eyes are decals? like Vanessa and Dasha. IT should include this fact in their doll specications.

    1. The word from Integrity, if you trust them, is that these dolls will have painted eyes.

  4. I was wondering if their eyes are decals too, like vanessa or dasha, IT should give this information to the buyer.

  5. A friend of mine asked and Alain said that they don't have decals. I like the balck jacket and the rings... Too many blond dolls in black outfits for me. A great giftset for many collectors, I'm happy for them.

  6. This is much MUCH less spectacular I thought a giftset with Agnes and Giselle could be...I find it boring! that's dissapointing. All that black and leather and lace and platinum ponytails is just too boring for me, if only one of them could be raven, preferably Giselle, as she always seems to be blonde. Btw Agnes is the one with the dress, if I'm correct.Giselle's outfit looks like NU.Fantasy Beast's one, only just black. Their screenings actually match quite well with the upgrade dolls (Giselle with Imogen and Agnes with Vanessa, wich may not be so good for Agnes)

  7. Hmm...
    Agnes and Giselle are my favorites by far, so I'm definitely pleased to see this set. And I do like the fashions, though they're not exactly wow-worthy. I'm a little disappointed with the dolls' aesthetics, though. The makeup is fine (better than unappealing!), but uninspiring. The hair is probably one of my least favorite hairstyles on a doll... or a person (but at least it's not a hair bump ;) ).

    I do like that they match each other, the pair-stand is great, and I'll certainly be ordering the set. I have a little hope that I may like them better in person -- that was certainly the case with Black Tie Ball Vanessa, who also looked a little bland in her promo photos.

  9. Wrong section. I meant the cyborg.

  10. Incredibly boring.

    Giselle looks terrible IMO, and has the same bad screening as the upgrade Imogen. Imogen's eyeshadow paint overlaps directly on top of the eyebrows. It's really a badly designed screening.

    Agnes has a doily for a fashion. It's so cheap looking. They couldn't even be bothered to use a 1/6 scale fabric for her.

    The hairstyles are uninspired and bland, and quite honestly, Integrity's factory really sucks at doing an even rooting line, so this style always gets messed up.
