Yes, BJDs are highly customizable and even if dozens of other people in the world own the same model, no two dolls are exactly alike. But did you ever want a certain doll sculpt and then after finding out that 50 other people in the same continent have the same model, you stopped wanting it? I used to want to own an Iple House Akando but after looking through forums I felt like every other person had one and I didn't want to go with the crowd. It's the complete opposite of wanting and buying a doll type because everybody else has one. I guess that's part of the reason people shell out loads of $$$ for limited editions and OOAKs; there's a certain feeling of specialness that comes with owning a sculpt that nobody else has or few other people have. Another solution to this might be to go for hybrids. But do you guys feel the same way I do? Edited to add: My attitude about this hasn't really changed much. I find it thrilling to see what people do with sculpts that aren't very common or popular and I decided I wanted to be one of those people. Even though I never get tired of looking at the very popular IH Akando I still don't want to get him because I feel like everything that can be done with this sculpt has already been done. So instead of buying him I just look at all the gorgeous pictures of him.
