Weekly summary 19/2019

Hi,

this is a summary of what was going in the doll world in the 19th week of 2019, as far as we at Dollstudio & DS Doll Europe were concerned.

1) New arrivals.

This week, four new heads were introduced:

  • Sino-doll S15 head aka ›Early Summer‹
  • Jarliet ›Kumiko‹ head (くみこ / 久美子)
  • Aiersha/Junying no. 175/2019 head
  • Aiersha/Junying Ka 3 head (卡3)

Also, a three new torsos were released:

As well Doll Forever's Legs 101 as Irontech's Legs are lower body torsos respecively "half torsos" with legs, but without breasts, a head or arms.

Climax Doll's Torso L is a 'classical' upper body torso with breasts, head and arms.

No new body styles were introduced. However, Sino-doll's SI-149 body style (silicone) already has first preview pics from Shanghai Expo.

As always, you can follow the latest updates in our Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/DollStudioEU

Also, we have the New products listing on all three Dollstudio websites. It is sorted in reverse chronological order, so the latest additions to our portfolio are on top of the listing:

On Dollstudio EU, there is also the New arrivals timeline http://eu.dollstudio.org/timeline with a slightly different display style.

2) Latest blog posts.

Our daily blog posts feature mostly new photo sets, showcasing dolls and heads in various configurations.

Among some other things, we have posted these new picture series during the past week:

These blog posts are mirrored on the Latest blog posts section all three Dollstudio websites. It is sorted in reverse chronological order, newest posts on top:

(EU and US sites in English, DE site in German)

Additionally, we have posted 3D overview pictures with all current YL Doll body styles:

3) Factory photos and shipped dolls.

This week, we had three (two) completed dolls:

The last one - the DH-158 from Doll House 168 - actually is a replacement as the original doll dissapeared somewhere in Washington.

As usual, confirmation pics are in our Twitter feed and on the respective product pages.

Also, Jeff from BCD donated some more factory photos from his own sales:

Thanks, Jeff!

4) Ready to ship - dolls from stock.

We have taken over an abandoned doll which was already on her way to Europe:

This beautiful two-headed girl has arrived and is now looking for a new home.
She is a factory-fresh doll with no previous owner, and she is ready to ship on the next working day.

I posted a quick Unboxing review with this doll, focusing on what has changed at Jinsan since the last unboxings from a while ago.

Details and pricing are in the For Sale thread.

Also, Eric from YL will soon add another abandoned doll, a YL-168/B.

5) Upcoming Unboxing Reviews.

There are two Unboxing reviews in preparation.

6) Other topics and business trends.

End of April was the China Adult-Care Expo 2019 in Shanghai. Some of the new arrivals introduced above have been shown at this trade fair.

At least one trend showed up in Shanghai, that's silicone heads. Or to be more precise, to combine silicone heads with TPE bodies. Mate-Doll pioneered this approach already a couple of months ago, and Hitdoll/Ildoll have been cross-producing whole dolls in either TPE or silicone for a while. In Shanghai two more brands joined in this trend: As well WM Dolls as JY Doll showed silicone heads on TPE bodies. The WM Dolls silicone head additionally showed implanted hair; that's not a real novelty as Z-Onedoll and Sino-doll have this expensive feature for months respectively years, but the move of two major TPE brands towards silicone, that's quite a move.

So things have started to move after a while of stagnation.
All I can say at the moment is that things will keep moving in the next months, especially in the silicone segment.

And last but not least there is yet another announcement to make: Doll Sweet is moving the factory to another city. I am not allowed to tell more about this yet, but there will be changes for this manufacturer with his longstanding tradition, too.
