Adonis Fashion Male Doll from JHD Toys - A Review

Adonis is part of the Mizi Doll line.  He is the second wave which consisted of three "Hormone" dolls.  Each of the three had a different skin tone, hair color, face-up and brief color. The regular retail price was $110. Then prices went wild on eBay, reaching heights of over $300. for one doll. The going price right now is under $200 if you buy all three and about $225. if you buy just one.
I find it so funny that someone is selling his EMPTY box with the stand for $11.50.
The box is on the flimsy side. My doll's sandals were loose and floating about in the box.



This is the first 1/6 scale doll I've purchased in years. Something about his hunkiness and his popularity intrigued me.



BUT...simply put...don't rush out to buy them if you are used to Fashion Royalty Homme quality.

Yes, there's a bit of a price difference but for what you get, these dolls are overpriced. Their articulation and posing abilities are far inferior. The quality is lower. For a nearly nude doll with meh face-ups and wonky lower legs, the price should be way under $100.




Google "nude Superman Ken doll" to see his body. He's not as edgy, has fisted hands and painted hair but he was only $39.99 originally.  All I'm saying is that Adonis is over-priced and over-hyped. It is not competition for Fashion Royalty.

But I digress.

I also purchased a fashion called "The Boy Next Door." The fashion pack was $68. That's about right.


I like the overalls and the t-shirt. With the sneakers, I recommend removing his feet, including the joint, and after loosening all the laces, insert the foot all the way into the shoe. Then you can push his feet back on. 
Why is his pack on so his name reads upsidedown?
