Japanese Dolls

Back to the Wonfes for the last part - dolls and articulated figures.

I think the Figma and Revoltech boom have spawned a huge demand for more of the same and it was quite noticeable that there were more articulated figures being made.

Some were crap and some were good - took pics of some of the better ones.

Quite a pretty Haruhi.
You may notice that all of my original photo articles are being uploaded to my Flickr account.
I'm doing this for a few reasons. I want to share my photos with more people and uploading them to Flickr makes a lot of sense. I have noticed a community of folks around my photos and there are also many conversations going on there.

All of my previous photo articles are in Flickr and I have sorted them into a few collections which you can see here.

Flickr makes things easy to sort and I have a collection called Places to visit in Japan (which I don't even have on dannychoo.com ^^) - it contains all my photo articles to date.

These Mama Chapp dolls are just adorable!

Another thing about having everything on Flickr means that its easy for me to make new contacts who share similar interests. If you have a Flickr account then it would be great to have you as a contact - my account here.

I use the Flickr API which sends my articles to Flickr meaning that its also no extra work for me. If you are a PHP user, check out PHP Flickr - its quite coolsome.

I flag some photos as being "adult" meaning that you may not be able to see some images depending on your region or personal Flickr settings. How many of you are having trouble viewing some of the images? If you are having problems - let me know your region and whether you have a Flickr account.

Not sure what variety of doll these chaps are but they remind me of the Action Man eagle eyes that I used to have back when I was a wee lad.

These dolls are made by Arte Tokio and are probably the closest you are going to get to having a miniature Candy Girl.

The material feels the same as a Candy Girl ( this is how I know ^^;) and will set you back 74800 yen. I'd be tempted to get one of they had moe faces.

If you got time, check out member melonpan's brilliant doll gallery.

What do you think about the dolls in this article? Creepy? Cute? Are you a doll collector or are thinking of picking some up?
