@bountifulbaby you realize you’ve included kits that haven’t even been released yet. This is starting to get sketchy like your not even looking at what you are doing or aware of your own products. It’s the same mistake that happened with your first close out sale just throwing every thing on the discontinued list.
Alot if these kits would be big sellers if produced in a factory that “we” trusted to provide study vinyl where the limbs won’t fall off our finished products to our customers. Other than that these kits are mostly tarnished by their reputation caused by the factory so didn’t sell based on that and the fear of difficulty painting and faulty flanges…
but if rereleased in your original factory some would be best sellers and hard to keep in stock.
Ruby awake is one of my favorites… she is the most realistic Realborn and it seems like no matter who paints her she is always amazing.
Those that are not as diverse or only appeal to a few I’d say time us up
Blake… that poor baby
Emmy I absolutely LOVE her but would be great to offer full limbs. The price for her kit and more expensive body is hard to justify. I love her pose ability but it’s the price and limited wardrobe options
Playful Sage - the crisp angles edges of her features are off putting and take away from her sweetness. This could be cause by the hard edges the new factory produces
Maria and Isabelle were just released
Charlie and Shannon haven’t even been available yet.
Same with the original close out y’all posted all the kits that were not even released yet as discontinued like flossie and octavia yet they are listed as coming soon.
I’m assuming after that shipment when they are gone they are gone and won’t be restocked because they will be from the new factory?
I’m not sure silicone is the way of the future these days as they are more skill related and seems like knowledge of chemistry is required to paint them without screwing them up and if you do screw up it isn’t an easy fix like vinyl where you can strip and start over. Money is tight these days and silicone is an expensive hobby for artist AND collectors there isn’t a variety out there either. I certainly don’t have the cash to throw down on silicones to practice until I get it right and buying kits for almost $1000 requires selling for more to make up for the time and effort put into them and getting that back with enough profit to have an income and continue in the hobby is going to make finished dolls cost as much as a small car
