I apologize if this has already been discussed, but it's something that has bothered me since I joined DoA in 2006 and started learning about my new obsession. In most hobbies and collectibles, a limited edition specifies the number of items that will be produced, and never never never produces any more items from that mold/specification. When you buy such an item, it is marked "25 of 100" or "2 of 10," for instance. And yet, in the BJD world, we have no idea how many dolls in a "limited" edition were or will be made, and more than once a previously "limited" edition has been reissued by the company. Now, I've been out of the loop for years, and I'm not familiar with the new companies' handling of limited dolls, so this may be changing. I did see a sale post of a non-Asian doll that specified the number of the doll and the total made. How is Volks handling this these days? I did a random check on Where Angel's Lie and came up with Shizu in 2009: "It is unknown what the total number of Shizus released was but it is implied that she was quite limited." This seems like a rather cavalier attitude, and I wonder why we have accepted it without complaint. Info or thoughts?
