1. It has come to the attention of forum staff that Dollshe Craft has ceased communications with dealers and customers, has failed to provide promised refunds for the excessive waits, and now has wait times surpassing 5 years in some cases. Forum staff are also concerned as there are claims being put forth that Dollshe plans to close down their doll making company. Due to the instability of the company, the lack of communication, the lack of promised refunds, and the wait times now surpassing 5 years, we strongly urge members to research the current state of this company very carefully and thoroughly before deciding to place an order. For more information please see the Dollshe waiting room. Do not assume this cannot happen to you or that your order will be different.

Very mature/masculine male doll - anyone know what I'm talking about?

Feb 5, 2017

    1. Hi all,

      First off, apologies if this is in the wrong place, it's been a long time since I posted on DOA and things have changed a lot since then.

      Basically, I was wondering if anyone could help me identify what I'm thinking of here. A while back (probably a couple of years), someone sent me a link to a new design of male dolls with a very mature look. The faces especially were very distinctive, with a very strong, masculine look, almost 'ugly'. My recollection is that it was a newer company, not Dollshe or Iplehouse.

      (If it helps at all, I've started looking for this boy now because my recollection is that he might make a good Vane from Black Sails...)

      Anyone have any idea what I might be looking for? Thanks in advance!
    2. Thanks for your reply! Not Bishounen House though, I saw these some time after Donn moved on to his comic book figure series (which I also love).
    3. Granado? La legend de temps? Simply divine? Those are the first to pop into my head for the more masculine guys.
    4. Perhaps Granado or Dollclans was what you saw ? Most of the Granado guys especially are never going to be mistaken for girls!
    5. Les Enfants Terribles has their Ryan and Don head sculpts, which look older as well as very masculine. I particularly like Ryan. :)
    6. aGatti?? - they are 1/4 scale very masculine dolls
    7. Impledoll has gotten some mature-looking sculpts recently - as has Dollmore.
    8. Immortality of soul and dollshe also have very adult sculpts.
    9. Never seen a Granado boy that I could possibly be described as 'almost ugly'... :DBut I suppose personal taste plays a role.

      Maybe the demiurge dolls? Their latest offering is young and pretty Lel (but still really realistic looking for a BJD), but some of their previous dolls in the street Racers collection have very unusual faces. All sold out sadly but I have seen them for sale on the marketplace here.

    10. If it was a few years ago, was it possibly Unidoll?
