Did you miss out on owning the original 2009 Pullip Grell or did you pass on the original because you wanted a Taeyang Grell doll?
Now you can finally possess your very own Grim Reaper with the announcement of the February 2016 Taeyang Grell Sutcliff!
Fans first caught a glimpse of Taeyang Grell on display at Doll Show 44 Fall Final held on September 6, 2015.
I’m super stoked to see this doll be released, however I’m a tad bit disappointed.
Groove did a great job on designing this doll, the shape of his eyebrows look accurate to the character however, I wish Grell had more personality; maybe a sinister look, or the expression he makes when he sees Sebastian and screams out “Bassy!”
While I haven’t read/watched the Kuroshitsuji Book of Circus series, I remembered Black Butler’s Grell as being flamboyant and lively.
This Taeyang looks very melancholy to me. I just want to go up and give him a big hug.
The quality of his outfit looks good and I love his glasses (can they make a life sized version of them, super cute!).
To take Grell to the next level I wish they could’ve found a way to include his sharp teeth (shark teeth) and his Death Scythe chainsaw.
All in all February 2016 appears to be heading in the right direction. I look forward to viewing owner pix when he becomes available!
