    3. What did you order?
      Ringdoll Lucifer full set (Normal Skin - RGM03)

      When did you order?
      July 2017 via Angelesque, arrived December 2017

      Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Yes. This was my first doll so I didn’t have a lot to compare him to. But my friend who has many dolls said that the quality is very good. Body has no seam-lines, sculpt has lots of details, and is strung well.

      Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      Yes. I’ll post a sales picture and my own.

      Were you satisfied with the product?
      Definitely yes. :)

      Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product
      Very pretty sculpt. I liked the company face-up a lot too. The clothing’s amazing quality!! And I have a good eye for that. He’s strung well and has good movement. Negative is that the head’s kind of a weird size for wigs. It’s 21cm, which means his head’s relatively small. The wig slides off easily without putting a cap/velcro on. I was surprised I had to glue on the lashes by myself. Eyes I got were kind of big I think, so I had to buy a smaller size.

      Would you buy more from this company?
      Already planning to place a new order with them. Great experience with my first doll, and I expect to have a great experience again. :) Thank you!!

      * When did you order My layaway was finished and order confirmed January 15th, 2018

      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion Oh my gosh, yes. He is absolutely incredible. I now know what a properly strung doll is supposed to feel like... lol! And his sculpt is just perfection! ;_;

      * Were you satisfied with the product? Beyond satisfyed!

      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      I genuinely have nothing negative to say. I think he's absolutely beautiful, and he poses SO well, even right out of the box! How cool is that!


      * Would you buy more from this company? YES. I am planning on another doll now as I type... Thank you Ringdoll for making my first new doll purchase a memorable one!!

    5. * What did you order? Red King with RGM-4 body

      * When did you order? 2018.04.16. (He arrived 2018.07. 04.)

      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Yes

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures? Yes, only the back of the knee was a surprise. It does not appear in any picture.

      * Were you satisfied with the product? Yes

      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      Positives: The body and the head are beautiful.:love The body is posing and stands well.
      There was a big surprise, I got a pair of fisted hand as a gift! :D
      The packaging is tasteful, beautiful.
      Negatives: The movable penis! It get stuck in the trousers, its elastic string is twists etc. :blush
      The random eyes (16 mm with 9 mm iris!) are too big for Red King. Knee joints are difficult to handle (for me) and back of the knees are a knot, swelling (I don"t like it).

      * Would you buy more from this company! Yes, yes, yes!

    6. * What did you order? Ringdoll Misha with company faceup, wig, and eyes
      * When did you order? Jan. 18, 2018
      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion? Yes, I don't have any less expensive dolls to compare him to so I'm not sure if there is a quality match for a lower price, but I am very happy with the quality for the amount that was paid.
      * Did the item look like the sales pictures? The doll himself did but I couldn't get the wig styling correct so he did look a little bit different.
      * Were you satisfied with the product? Yes I was.
      * Would you buy more from this company? Most definitely.

    7. * What did you order?
      Xiu head, rgm04 body in wheat skin, and the mechanical arm for 70cm dolls.

      * When did you order?
      May 2018

      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Yes. I had to get used to that the body is different from the Rgm03 in how to pose him but after I got used to it in very happy with it. The head sculpt is so extremely beautiful and the arm is amazing too! Bit hard to get the battery in but whatever.

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?

      Yes perfectly.

      * Were you satisfied with the product?

      Overall yes. But I don't like the mechanical hand. It's jointed and poses very badly. If prefer a non jointed hand that's a bit smaller. This one is huge.

      * Would you buy more from this company?
      Yes!!! Omg I love their sculpts. But I promised myself to get dolls from other companies first because I don't want to with the same body. But I'll probably come back to them. They're really my favourite!!

    8. * What did you order?
      Sankai S
      * When did you order?
      2018. Nov
      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      No, I am afraid. I will not comment on the time they made us to wait, as I was told RD always takes about 6 month to deliver the doll, not mentioning so many new dolls were opened.
      The doll is finally here in early May. I had faith in RD but I was wrong. The length of legs are uneven! The doll can't even stand up straight!

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      Yes.
      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      No.
      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      Positives: make-up looks like the original in sales picture
      Negatives: the uneven length of legs! really question their quality check! The proportion of head and body is weird. The head should be bigger.

      * Would you buy more from this company?
      No.

    9. * What did you order?
      Ringdoll Ashford EVO fullset.

      * When did you order?
      17 Sep 2018. Received him 17 Jun 2019.

      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Yes, the quality of the doll and fullset items are absolutely stunning. I got him at a significant discount as well since I ordered during his release event, so I definitely feel like I got my money's worth, if not more.

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      Yes, they match exactly (aside from my doll being a different resin color and body). I'm particularly impressed with the faceup, which is quite detailed and intricate. It's spot on to the company pictures, if not even better.

      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      Yes, 100%.

      * Would you buy more from this company?

      Unfortunately, no. Ringdoll makes excellent, high-quality dolls, but even so I do not think it was worth a 10 month wait. In the future, I'll probably only order Ringdoll products secondhand, unless they can prove to get their wait times under control.

    10. * What did you order?
      Ringdoll Senior Dracula!
      * When did you order?
      It was around March 2015 I believe! (When he first was announced as my Bday gift)But I got him from Alice's collection!
      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Yes! He was worth every penny!
      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      Yes! I got his fullset and I'm still gushing over how beautiful and detailed he came to me!
      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      Yes! I had always dreamed about a Ringdoll and he came to me like an angel!
      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      Positives: Everything!
      Negatives: Hmm His faceup is a little plain if you end up getting the company one (Nothing wrong with that tho!)
      He also is a lot bigger then I thought! His chest is very wide so getting fitting clothes for his is hard and usually results in custom sizes! (He's the Ringdoll 70.6 RMG-Body 3)
      * Would you buy more from this company?
      Yes! I already have my eyes on the Red King or Judge of Hell!

      * When did you order?
      22th of February 2019, paid in full
      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Yes
      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      Yes
      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      Yes to the product. No to how my order was handled.
      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      Positive:
      • resin is nice,
      • resin color is nice too,
      • sculpting is gorgeous, especially the ears
      • sculpt looks exactly like my OC.
      • I still like it
      Negative:
      • I waited almost 8 months for a blank head. Others who ordered blank Messengers waited a lot less.
      • Ringdoll did not notice, what they made my head with a color difference, for a month. For a month it was laying in the factory waiting for packing and quality check.
      • General treatment of wheat orders during 2019 year. All wheat orders made since November 2018 were started to be made at the end of August 2019. It seems, I am the only one who got my wheat order before November. Others are still waiting.
      * Would you buy more from this company?
      I might consider a in-stock or second hand doll. I will not order directly from them again.

    13. * What did you order?
      limited Ringdoll Wudang-Chuliuxiang fullset

      * When did you order?
      8/10/2018 and it arrived on 7/12/2019 then I had to send the head back to be fixed and by the time everything was fixed it was 10/22/2019

      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      No, The doll arrived with a poorly done and damaged faceup. I had requested they not paint the symbol on his forehead when I bought him and when I unpacked him it looked like they had painted the mark and then scratched it off and then resealed the head with the eyelashes in as they were covered with sealant residue. There was still faint red on the forehead in the shape of the symbol.
      Also the lip and eyebrow makeup was not even close to the sales pictures and his eyebrow on the right was set much higher then the other and both looked like fat furry caterpillars in my opinion.
      The clothing is not amazing and on the cheap side, the crane on the back of the coat is the nicest part of the full set , the rest could have been made and painted much better.
      The armor pieces are not resin but a soft vinyl and are poorly painted .


      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      NO the faceup was nothing like the sales pictures and was damaged by ringdoll and they sent it to me anyway.
      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      No
      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      After a lot of messaging and pictures and me not dropping the issue they agreed to redo the faceup but wanted me to pay return shipping to them. I pointed out that the head was sent damaged by them and it should not be my responsibility to pay to send it back to be fixed, they finally agreed to reimburse my shipping but it took more messages and time to get them to actually reimburse me and then they did not send it correctly through paypal and I did not get the full amount .

      A few weeks after the head arrived back to them, Cherry messaged me and let me know they redone the facup.
      I had luckily requested pictures of the head and upon viewing the two blurry sideways pictures provided , I was disappointed to see that it was exactly the same damage faceup and nothing had been fixed.

      More messages followed and it was discovered that the faceup had indeed NOT been redone and then more time passed again while they actually redid it.

      New pictures of the redone faceup were sent on 9/17/2019 and I approved the faceup on 9/19/2019 as I wanted him back and it was better then the first one but still not like the sales pictures.
      Ringdoll replied they would be arranging shipping on 9/23/2019 but it was only on 10/22/2019 that they actually sent him back and that was after me again asking when they would ship him.


      Also a side note Ringdoll 70cm dolls have tiny pinheads and in my opinion look terrible on the big beef cake body ringdoll sells them on.
      Also the RGMbody-3 body which my doll came on has a very weird hunched forward neck and it looks odd, at least to me.

      Also because the Ringdoll 70cm heads are tiny they don't look right with some of the 60cm ringdoll girl heads which are slightly bigger, so beware if you are trying to make a couple with them :( .

      * Would you buy more from this company?
      I will NEVER buy or recommend this company to anyone. Their stance on Human rights and lack of customer service is awful. This was my first and last order from them and it was a long and frustrating experience .

      Pictures below of some of the head's damage, You can see the scraped area and the white sealant particles covering the eyelashes.

      Below is the picture they first sent me of the supposed fixed faceup that was actually the same damaged one with nothing fixed, gotta love the blurry quality .

      Poor paint job on the armor ( You may need to go to flickr to zoom in on the picture to see the details).
      This bothers me as I have other fullsets from different companies that have perfectly painted armor and this in comparison looks like like garbage.
