I am in a very emotional state right now and I’m not going to lie, but I think this just makes me see things more clear. Robert Best has announced, just a week before the release, that the Moschino dolls will also be available on the Barbie Collection website starting November 9th. Full stop. Just that. A freaking date. No word on the quantities, no word on how many dolls have been sent to physical shops, nothing. JUST A STUPID DATE!
I’m sure Robert is not al fault. I’m actually positive about this. The people responsible for yet another fiasco waiting to happen are the ones from the PR department and whoever else makes these kind of decisions regarding an exclusive and highly anticipated doll. How can you have ANOTHER release with no exact hour, no nothing really? I have come to the conclusion that they just want us to fight yet again on a doll, create a huge buzz, blow the secondary market prices sky high so they can sit back and gloat at how amazing the Barbie brand is doing.
IDIOTS!!!!!! We are not starving dogs that fight for a piece of meat. We are not scavengers! We are your collectors and we need RESPECT! You can keep you doll. I’m not going to stoop to this level for a doll. I’m not going to sit day and night to wait for some info and then be given vital information just a few days or maybe hours before the release. I like the dolls but you can have mine. I have dignity and I intend to keep it. I’m sick of fighting, of people complaining about others that have bought dozens of dolls and are reselling them for huge prices on eBay. I’m sick of it all.
I’m going to give my money to a company that sens emails in advance with all the info necesary. You have destroyed my joy of collecting new Barbie dolls. Congrats. Please continue to ignore me and everybody else that tells you your strategy sucks. We are just vermins to you.
