Okay, some of these companies I'm about to list are actually very popular, these are just what I see from time to time. Okay, so I hang out in the box opening forum or whatever you call it a lot and I noticed something. As popular Volks is, Fairyland, BBB/RS, and Soom seem to have more threads. Now I know that not everyone goes to the Box open forum, or even post in it, but for the ones who do, it seems kinda weird to me. Not a bad thing though. Also, other factors plays in too, like price or availability, or etc. However to me, to be popular means you see a lot of it, or well known. While Volks is well known, I hardly see their dolls, or if I do, never their standard ones. And in Galleries, I see a lot of smaller companies too. But again, this is me just seeing it this way; I'm not saying it actually is this way Basically, what companies do you know for a fact are popular and whatnot, but rarely see? And not just companies, but dolls too! Like I hardly ever see Alice-s from Volks in pictures, but if you ever try to buy one, they cost a lot due to people loving them... Honestly, I think this topic goes in the GD, but I don't know. So sorry if this is repeating or out-of-place!
