I picked up my Dolpa 12 Guidebook from Volks today and aside from the dealer list from heaven it also contained some interesting info that I thought I'd share. Some of this info has already been posted here, and some hasn't, so I'll just post what I have since I'm not sure what's already been discussed. ^^ First of all, I'm sure everyone has seen the new limited edition dolls listed at the Volks website: http://www.volks.co.jp/jp/event/dolpa12/item_list.aspx Isao 2nd version is limited to 100 pieces and will not be sold at the after event. However for all the other limited editions dolls, Volks will be accepting orders for them at Dolpa 12, same as they did with the limiteds at Dolpa 11. Basically, they're selling a certain number on the day, but when they run out, that's not the end. Anyone else who attends Dolpa and wants a limited (and has a coupon from the guidebook ^^) can place an order for the limited they want and Volks will be fullfilling all these orders. So basically, finally limited dolls are becoming a little more easily available than they were before. (I will note, however, that Volks only very recently finished fullfilling the Isao orders from the last Dolpa. I'm expecting Tohya and Kohya orders from this Dolpa to take just as long!) MSD Sakura, Maggie and Myu are being released at the Dolpa in kit form with the new version MSD body in pure skin. So it looks like we're not losing all those old standard releases for good, they're simply being upgraded to pure skin. ^^ Links weren't at the Volks website yesterday or so, but they seem to be up now: http://www.volks.co.jp/jp/superdollfie/mini_sd/sakura_p_s/index_sakura_p_s.aspx http://www.volks.co.jp/jp/superdollfie/mini_sd/magie_p_s/index_magie_p_s.aspx http://www.volks.co.jp/jp/superdollfie/mini_sd/myu_p_s/index_myu_p_s.aspx There's a couple of SD Cute sized wigs being released at the Dolpa: W-08 (waffle style) in five colours: Classic Gold (10), Cream (16T), Wine Brown (350), Ivory (613) and Honey Gold (GOLD). W-85 (boy's short II) in five colours: Natural (2), Classic Gold (10), Cream (16T), Copper (33T) and Ivory (613). W-105 (one curl bob) in five colours: Natural (2), Classic Gold (10), Cream (16T), Copper (33T) and Camel (144T). V-Jeans wise, there's 3 SD13 boy types -- one straight, regular fit (blue), one boot-cut, regular fit (blue), and one boot-cut, loose fit, long legged (black). SD girls/boys/SD13 girls get 2 types -- one straight, relaxed (black), and one boot cut, relaxed, long legged (indigo blue). MSDs get two types -- one bellbottom, relaxed, long legged (indigo blue) and one straight, relaxed, long legged (black). No pics at the Volks site yet, but I expect they'll be there soon. There's also denim jackets in all sizes, and parkas as well. There's a bunch of new shoes, which are now up at the Volks website: http://www.volks.co.jp/jp/superdollfie/sb/index_sb.aspx The first five pairs shown are actually being released in Volks stores tomorrow. The remaining five pairs are being released at Dolpa 12. There's also a pic of the new Dollfie Dream Inner Frame, but that seems to have been discussed a bit here already, so I won't cover that one. ^^ Looks interesting, though! For me, though, actually the most exciting news in the Guidebook was this: there is a 2nd 'Perfect Catalogue' being released as a follow-up to 'La Carte D'un Ange'. ^o^ The new book is called 'Le Modele Pour L'ange' and is due to be released in late January. It will be 1,990yen, A5 size, 144 pages, 80 of which are in colour. Sounds pretty similar to the previous one in that respect. It will have a guide to the new FCS (I'm really looking forward to that ^^) as well as a One-Off guide, and all of the new standard SD types and such. Yay! Oh yeah, and I noticed some discussion about Jun's cat, so here you go: the cat's name is Komame. Komame is 8 years old and was made by Jun's mother and given to her to protect her. (Komame often consoled young Jun when she fought with Shirou, which was often. ;^^) Jun and Komame go absolutely everywhere together. ^^ As for how to GET Komame, I don't know how the International release works, but for the Japanese release: Komame is limited to 100 pieces; everyone who buys Jun has a chance to receive Komame but they have to send in something that they get that comes with her. ^^; (Sounds pretty much like what they did with Tsukasa's backpack.) Hmm. I think that was everything. Hope you all find this interesting! (If so, feel free to donate to the 'Buy Cassiel a Kohya Fund'... ^_~) - Cassiel!
