Hi there! I was just curious about this and was wondering if anyone else had an thoughts on this subject. Not too long ago, I purchased a doll from a company that was very new on the scene. I plunked down my $550-ish+ for a 70cm doll. What I ended up getting was poorly packaged, had dirty spots on the resin and on it's clothing, and had spots where the resin didn't match. So, I guess what I'm asking is that if a company is new on the scene, should they start off offering lower prices? When you have companies such as Luts and Dollmore lowering their prices for their dolls, I just don't see how new companies can charge what Luts and Dollmore used to charge.... (not sure if that made sense)..... Anyone else have a comment to add? thx!
