Dollfies Still Scare Me (But I Kinda Want These)

Damnit, Volks, stop trying to make dolls that actually appeal to me so I can hate you properly!

If you haven't been around Anime Vice long, you may not know that I have a mild terror of Dollfies and their ilk (except in Rozen Maiden). I don't have anything against their fans of course, but frankly, I find the vast majority of the dolls to look creepy and soulless, and not in a charming Nightmare Before Christmas way so much as a regular Hot Topic shopper kinda way. I hope you Dollfie fans won't hold that against me; they're just not my bag.

...Usually. I'd heard before that there were going to be Yoko and Nia Dollfies from Gurren Lagann, but now we're actually starting to see images of them, and surprise! They look less like Stupidly Expensive Twilight Barbie and more like, well, Stupidly Expensive Yoko and Nia. Well, okay, Nia looks a little soulless, but it's part of her design, 'cause of the flower eyes.
Actually, I'm really impressed. Yoko's breasts don't look totally ridiculous like I would have expected (just a little silly instead-- let's face it, these dolls weren't really meant to have lifted-and-separated boobs like her outfit requires, really). And they don't just have standard!Nia, they have short hair!Nia as well, which is pretty awesome.

Of course, I'm pretty confident that they're going to cost ridiculous sums of money, so unless one of you won the lottery lately and is planning to get me a birthday present, I doubt I'll be able to get my hands on one. Still though...impressive, Volks. Very impressive.

It might be Gurren Lagann but they still freak me the hell out. Keep these things away from me.

Haha. You don't want to buy one, wear the same outfit as it, and carry it around on your shoulder at a con?

I'd totally do this if I didn't think Yoko's dollfie had bigger boobs as myself.
... seriously those boobs are huge on that dollfie. I'm used to dollfies with smaller boobs.

I do like Nia's dollfie though (but her boobs kinda look big for her character model in the anime). I absolutely love the jewelry-like parts on her outfit.
If I had disposable income, I would get Nia before I get Yoko.


I never thought I'd use the word boobs so many times in one post when not talking about something like Queen's Blade.
