Mods you may take this down if there is something similar to this. Hello DOA, I have been in a recent discussion about buying a ball-jointed dolls and my partner in this discussion has brought up some valid points. She has told me that everything you can do with BJD you can do with Barbie dolls Such as *modding-http://www.geekologie.com/2008/12/10/barbie-zombie-1.jpg[EDIT] *Face-ups *pictures *photostories *box openings *making wigs and clothes The only thing I could bring as a defense was *they could stand *they are pretty How do you feel about paying the money you do on dolls when you could do those same exact things with barbie dolls and other less expensive dolls on the market? Does this deter you from the hobby in any way? Do you have any good defenses about why you would spend the money on BJD's Than regular factory produced dolls? Thank you for your time, Miss.Funagai [EDIT 2] Thanks for your response already I now have a good defense against the other debater.
