I've been poking around and staring at some dolls, mostly in search of one that fits a certain character of mine. This character has the potential to be very wicked and cruel, but has a soft side too. When I saw these hands by Doll Zone, I let out a squee of joy. Yes, my husband is still in shock. I kinda woke him. -whistles- These were jointed claw hands! They would be so perfect for him, I just need to find a head sculpt close enough to him with elf ears and a body and I'm all set. Sorry, I suppose I'm sidetracking here so here goes, on hands, which do you prefer? I saw so many different types, jointed, flat, curled, fisted, holding, one flat one pointing....how do you chose? Is it by character/specific doll? Do you like buying all sorts of hand sets for each doll, or just getting jointed hands? Has anyone ever gotten the jointed hands and regretted it? I'm very curious about them and wish to know if they're worth spending so much on. I know, not all of us view $130 as a lot of money, but between bills, car and house payments...it's a lot to me.
