Dolls seem to be divided into "basic" and "limited", where the latter is only sold over a short period of time in a limited number of copies. So I found out that people usually do layaways for limited edition dolls and that made me wonder - do people often buy limited dolls because they are limited? From my observations they are no different from any other dolls... it's like a sculpt that was randomly selected from a bunch to be the limited one. And that's it, you might decide that you like that particular sculpt or not. And I don't know if it's just luck but I never saw a limited edition doll that I would be tempted to buy over a non-limited even if I had the money to afford it. To me, the sculpt is important and whether or not it fits the character I want to shell, regardless of how rare it is. So what do you guys think? Are limited sculpts aesthetically superior than basic from a single company? Are they the better product? Or does it really only come down to the fact that there is less of them and that is the main reason why someone who doesn't have the money at that exact moment may decide to do a layaway? Or is it really an unfortunate attraction to a doll that just happens to be limited and cost a lot more? I am interrested in knowing your opinions about it, particularly if you own a limited edition doll.
