If this does not fit into DoA rules or this has been discussed somewhere else, then by all means, lock this thread up. I simply would like to hear opinions. I, among lots of bjd hobbyists have been wondering the nearly owerwhelming and most of all, open critics that is visible pretty much every single time on Soom's own shop page as they release a new doll. This is not ment to be pointing fingers around, I just want to hear some opinions that how on earth people have to behave like that? Why it has even come into this? And why just plain harsh comments have to be made on their own shop boards? I'm meaning the comments like (these are not real comments, just generalized examples) "oh no, not another pretty boy again, make REAL MEN, PLEASE!", "This is not the doll I want, make something prettier next time", "I know you can do better than this particular doll, right?", "every Soom release has to be perfect". I very well remember the time when Soom was 'just another bjd company' among others, now it seems that they have to fulfill every single persons own personal requirements with the MD/other fantasy doll lines. I haven't heard that there would be any other companies that would get so much open criticism or have such high expectations for the upcoming releases. I remember that there was huge complaints around after release of Pel (-11 Remaining story release) which didn't have any fantasy parts. I myself have also mentioned something about them constantly releasing prettier male sculpts. But then I saw one of those sculpts with totally different faceup and styling. And that indeed was very manly after all, so my comments were pretty much flushed down. Ofcourse people can think whatever they want to think about Soom dolls or any other company dolls. But what has made people to be so harsh on commenting straight for the company ? Or do you think that it's justified for a person to say for the doll makers that 'I don't like this at all'? Yes, Soom does have largest and most diverse selection of fantasy themed dolls which are much loved among the bjd communities, I also have couple from the MD line. But has community itself set too high standards for their releases? Why there has to be so massive complaints around which are directed straight for the doll makers?
