Mods -- if this is too similar to the "Hooves- why do we like them?" thread or this one, please merge or delete it -- I think it's a bit of a different topic, but perhaps it will generate similar discussion. How do you feel about the repetition of the same ideas? Do you get burned out on multiple companies using the same fantasy concepts or do you like the idea that they are more accessible (and possibly cheaper) and therefore available to more people, including those who do creative mods that they might not do with a more limited/expensive doll? (Note: I'm *not* asking the contentious question "should companies rerelease their limited dolls" -- that has been argued elsewhere). The obvious examples that comes to mind are werewolves (after Soom, AOD, Angelheim) ) and hooves (multiple Sooms after their initial success, Resinsoul, Angelheim and others), and others. Do you mind seeing the same concept in multiple gallery threads or is it just like looking at similar facial sculpts? Do the differences between the dolls produced offset the similarity? Does the customization mean that you don't get bored? How do you feel about your own dolls when they are no longer so distinctive? Are some companies capitalizing on the ideas of others? I'm not talking about artist dolls or individual customizers, but about dolls mass produced by companies for a profit.
