Mattel’s big hush hush secret: Twilight Saga Jasper and Rosalie dolls

So I didn’t manage to post this on the blog last night but you may have seen these dolls on my Romanian blog and on the Facebook page. I’ve heard rumours about new Twilight dolls but I had no idea they came out. usually Mattel makes a big deal about releasing these kind of dolls so it came a as a total suprise for me that they didn’t say anything about them and they just poped up on eBay and on some dealers websites. Could these dolls be punished because of Kristen’s “indiscretion”? Hmmmm….

I’m not a Twilight fan so the dolls don’t really appeal to me from that point of view but I must admit that Jasper has a cute head. It would look great on an articulated body and with some new fashions on. Rosalie on the other hand is boring. Why pay $35 for her? For what? I bet that any good OOAK artist out there could do a better job at this. Seems to me that Mattel was in a rush to finish this line and they just threw out there an unfinished prototype. :(

Barbie 2013: Barbie Look, Dolls of The World 2013, Barbie Birthday Wishes

We finally have a glimpse of the new 2013 Barbie Collector dolls. I’ve been waiting for some time now to see the new Barbie Look series and I must say I’m a little bit dissapointed. I love the Steffie one but I expected more. The Tim Gunn dolls look better. Then there are the new DOTW 2013. I like DOTW Philippines, DOTW Spain looks the same, good thing that they didn’t use the Moulin Rouge theme for France but obverall they are not impressive.

Thoughts?
