PLEASE NOTE: the following are my hopes and desires for Rococo Peacock Pullip. It reflects my opinions ONLY. I have No insider knowledge. The events have NOT happened. It’s ONLY what I wish would happened. END NOTE
I haven’t done one of my rants in while . . . So I’m ready to get started & get real.
It looks like we’ve gotten quite a lot of interesting Pullip news lately but I’m not ranting about them, yet.
With the recent announcement of the August dolls, I felt today is a great day for my rants to return.
Today, I’m going to
rant focus on a Pullip I saw on Ars Gratia Artis (AGA) Facebook page back in January.
This post really isn’t a rant. It’s me, laying out my hopes and desires for this beautifully, stunning doll because I feel Pullip fans need an exceptional doll like her to come forward.
We, Pullip fans, need a Pullip to remind us why we fell in love with her in the first place.
And the designers need a wakeup call, so they too, can remember what made fans rush out to purchase Pullip with every release (she was something special back then, wasn’t she).
I believe this gorgeous doll can reignite our passion for Pullip once again (if released correctly).
All of the wonderful reasons and feelings for owning a Pullip have gotten lost or destroyed with the latest releases but this beauty has the potential to change all that because she’s different from all the look-a-like Pullips released so far this year (excluding Wilhelmina).
When I look into her eyes I’m in a blissful trance. I am in awe of her beauty and taken back by her glorious look & style (a Pullip hasn’t taken my breath away in a very long time except for Yeolume, I simply adore her).
The Pullip I’m referring to is part of the Rococo Peacock series and designed by the lovely Ms. Mango Park herself.
This Rococo Peacock Pullip got her inspiration from the Greek mythological character Hera. (I don’t know if this is her official name but I’ll call here Rococo Peacock Hera Pullip).
The Rococo Peacock Hera Pullip is spectacular!
But Here is My Biggest Concern:
My biggest concern is that she’ll suffer the painful design “cuts” as Pullip Io & Dal Loa in order to stay cost effective. And this simply cannot happen to Rococo Peacock Hera Pullip.
She’s too beautiful, to offer her to fans as a watered down, vanilla version of herself.
Rococo Peacock Hera Pullip needs to be offered to fans as she is –
Though AGA has stated on their Facebook page:
“We haven’t decided if or not to release the dolls since some of the dolls would require higher price and technique to produce.”
So she may or may not ever get a final production.
If she is release – Please don’t let Rococo Peacock Hera Pullip suffer the same fate as Pullip Io
So here’s my helpful suggestion which many will not like but oh well (the anime figure industry does it and other doll markets do it & Pullip can do it once again).
My Hope & Desire for Rococo Peacock Hera Pullip
Offer Rococo Peacock Hera Pullip as a limited edition doll with an authenticity card.
- A Pullip designed by Mango Park deserves a special limited release
- As a Pullip fan, I’m willing to pay more for a doll if I know I’m among a small few to own her
- No Risk of Sneak Attacks of sold-out doll back on the market! My fears will be erased because a limited amount is guaranteed & documented on each card. So I know there will be no sneak attacks of sold-out dolls miraculously reappearing on the market after “technically” being sold out. These unexplained reappearances of dolls tend to decrease the value of my original release dolls (I’m looking at you Alice du Jardin, Romantic Alice, Naomi, Chelsea, Tiphona, Melissa, Lunatic Queen Alice, Miku, and Kiyomi)
- Rococo Peacock Hera Pullip so too special to suffer the same fate as Pullip Io (end the madness please)
- And ultimately with such a glamorous looking Pullip, I would feel like I’m getting the most out of money (an original, beautiful limited Pullip doll. Here take my money now!)
Now a Few Cautionary Measures:
Quality, Quality, Quality Control is necessary at the highest level. If Rococo Peacock Hera Pullip is to be offered at a premium limited edition price, she needs to be worth the premium amount. The design is already there and the execution needs to be sorted out & compliment the design. She’ll have to withstand the travels across the global and arrive to fans in 1 beautiful piece.
If she is offered as a limited doll, Please do not limit the release to Korea and Japan only (hint, hint The Dolly Insider would love to offer a limited Rococo Peacock Hera Pullip to our fantastic, loyal customers.) Yes, some markets are not as vast as other markets but Pullip fans are everywhere and they would like an opportunity to own the lovely Rococo Peacock Hera Pullip as well.
If Rococo Peacock Hera Pullip is not made into a full high quality Pullip doll, I hope at least the members of Pullip’s design team will study Rococo Peacock Hera Pullip closely and try to truly understand what makes her so unique & desirable to fans.
Study her well, and make use of her appealing elements & features and use them in future Pullip releases.
Okay, I’ve come to the end of my
rant hopes and desires for Rococo Peacock Hera Pullip.
Until my next rant,
i agree with you wholeheartedly. this series doesnt deserve the peacock ttle anymore. nothing looks like a peacock. and she is the most lovily of the group. i would be happy if they changed the boys makeup though. the black lips were…. ewwwwww. but other then that it should stay… and yes if they are oing to make price cuts with a beautiful series… then just make it limited…. i mean. theyhave done that already to many dolls and these are actually alot better then some of those witht he rock bands and stuff
It’s always a delight to talk with you 🙂
I totally agree with you.
I really felt this post needed to be written.
After reading fans disappointment and heartbreak over the changes
that happened with Pullip Io & Dal Loa I couldn’t hold back any longer.
It pains me to read so many fans feeling so frustrated and disappointed with Pullips lately.
It’s a very strange event occurring with both collectors and retailers of Pullip (I hope to rant about this occurrence in the future).
From our last discussion (13 Pullip Dolls in 13 Days: #4 Batman SDCC 2012 Taeyang), I believe you and the blog’s author hit the nail on the head.
I don’t know if these unfortunate trends will continue or if they will correct themselves? (I really hope they correct themselves soon)
Collectors are revaluing their love of Pullip and retailers are scaling back on their selection of Pullips.
I use to work for an anime hobby store and whenever we had Pullips in stock she’d sell out. It was one of the best products we had beside anime figures. You don’t see that same fever now days.
I’m concern for the collectors & retailers who have put their faith in the way things “use to be”
Those good ol’ days may actually be way, way behind us now.
It’s Economics 101.
The Pullip designers/manufacturers have made too many unpopular Pullips.
The supply is high and the demand is way low for these dolls.
The Pullip market, the community, the fans, the collectors and the retailers need and desire for Pullip to make an adjustment and get back on the “right” track because she’s certainly strayed from her “original” path of being an awesome fashion doll (too bad there isn’t some type of dolly GPS to help her get back on the right path)
It’s time for a Pullip Resurgence!
It’s time for Pullip to show the world, once again, what makes her one of the best amongst fashion dolls.
I am definitely ready for Pullip to Come Back! And take her place among the fun, fashion dolls fans love to own & collect.
