This is in response to Iplehouse putting out Ashanti, Kamau, and Benny. I was pretty bummed about missing out on Ashanti when she was originally released. Then a bit confused when I saw her on CDS. And now just a little pissed that she's being released as a basic. To me, if a company says a doll is limited, it's limited. (I still don't have an Ashanti, by the way.) There are plenty of limited dolls, now sold out, that I would love to get my hands on, but part of the doll's appeal is that it is a rare, unique doll that you either pounce on, or spend ages hunting down on the marketplace. It's one thing to do a quick second-chance limited event, like SOOM did when they released only a couple of each doll for that raffle, but to outright re-release a limited doll as a basic makes the first release entirely dishonest; it means they lied to the original customers who thought they were getting a doll that not just anybody else would be able to get. I've been lusting after a SOOM Bygg for some time now, and even have set aside funds for when I find him on the marketplace. But frankly, if SOOM released him as a basic, I wouldn't buy him from them. Part of what I love about limited dolls is how hard they can be to get, and it'll be that much more rewarding when I can finally bring him home than if I just ordered a basic doll from a company. Not that I have anything against basic dolls—I own a couple—but if a company tells you a certain doll is limited, then I believe they should keep their word and keep that doll limited. So, that's my opinion What do you guys think?
