My friend, joey from the MH Arena received these dolls in the mail today. He pre-ordered them from amazon.ca and they suprisingly arrived today! He says “I’m an nib collector so I can’t really compare them by touch. I think they’re great and Maddie is probably my favourite!” He did snap a few photos for me, and he has agreed to give us the first look! Check them out:
Here they are straight out of their shipping box! How exciting!
First up is Legacy Day Maddie. She is packaged with her teal and purple hair in a ponytail (or other such up-do) with a top-hat headband. Her cute outfit includes a 3/4 sleeve jacket, golden earrings and a necklace, and white cuffs with little pink bows.
Maddie wears black gloves (black molded hands) with a long purse that resembles a tea bag? This photo also shows off the multiple layers of her skirt. She has a top gold mesh, a shiny purple layer with golden flecks below that, a purple with gold design below that, and a black mesh with gold glitter/sparkles on the bottom.
Maddie’s stockings are either tan or light blue with golden vertical lines running down them. Her shoes have been seeing on taobao (Chinese auction site) before. Here, we can see that there are four cups, purple, blue, dark/antique gold, and lighter gold.
I am less impressed with her shoes. I feel like I’ve seen this pair on taobao, too, but there are several variations on this theme right now.
Ashlynn also wears black fishnet-style stockings with gold glitter/flecks in them.
Here is Ashlynn’s outfit. Her teal blue dress has a gold design on the top and just shimmers on the bottom. The bottom skirt is knee-length, with the overskirt flowing down to her calves. I can’t tell from the in-box photos how the cape is arranged or changed.
Legacy Day Cerise has the grey fur around her hood (unfortunately) and a really cute face! I think this is version 2’s face, and I am so excited about that! I love version 2’s face! Her bangs are super cute, too! She looks like she has a silver hair accessory, too.
Cerise’s outfit is a sleeveless plaid dress. I think the dress is very cute, but would probably look better without that grey hood. I can’t see from the in-box photos, but it looks like her LD hood is very similar to her signature hood in its pattern. She has a belt that is reminiscent to her signature look, too. The skirt on her dress has a lace pattern. Judging from the fact that it also visible from the back, I imagine this is printed on, not sewn on.
Here are the UPC Codes from top to bottom Ashlynn, Cerise and Maddie:
I am super excited for these dolls to make it to the U.S. and into my collection! I am most looking forward to a singular-release Ashlynn, but I am surprised how much I am looking forward to Cerise! I might have to buy two so that I can customize that hood with white fur.
What do you think? Are you excited for their release, too?
