  • About a year ago, Volks introduced the completely redesigned Dollfie Dream Type III body as a replacement to the Dollfie Dream Type II body.  The type III body promised increased articulation, the ability for the arm to hold up heavy objects, etc etc.  In a nut shell, the type III body delivered what it promised; however, at the same time, there were some design trade-off that wasn't readily apparent to most of us at that time.  In the course of introducing new movement range and capability, the new body became weaker, reports of broken shoulder joints started circulating the internet within months of the introduction of the new body.  I have always handled my DD girls with great care and had so far been free of any incident until about a month ago when I was getting Sakuya ready for the California trip.  I noticed some cracks started to develop when I pulled her arms out to change her dress... I was devastated, my most beloved Sakuya chan now has a cracked shoulder joint!!!   It took me a few minutes to overcome my sadness, then I realize as a mechanical engineer with 16 years of working experience, I owe myself a full blown investigation!  After taking a closer look at the shoulder joint, I finally realized why we are seeing cracked shoulders...

  • When I was focusing my effort on Dollfie Dream Gathering yesterday, there was another major story developing in Dengeki 20th anniversary 電撃20年祭 …. apparently, Volks has been secretly developing yet another new Dollfie Dream image, this time for the ultra popular heroine Asuna アスナ who basically dominated Comiket 82 with a vast array of doujin based on her story in Sword Art Online!  I have to admit that I am quite attracted to the series myself as the premise of the story is very engaging for me since I did spend a good number of years playing FFXI myself so I can somewhat relate to it.

  • Breaking news!  For the past couple of years, Volks has been pushing the Dollfie Dream web order project, first there was Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann Dollfie Dream, then there was White Album Dollfie Dream Project, Touhou Project, and most recently the TYPE-MOON x Dollfie Dream Project.   It was only a matter of time before they announced the fifth project, in fact there was already some chatters in 2ch suggesting several possible options...  but today Volks has finally made the announcement on their 50th anniversary Volks News that they are indeed working on their fifth web order project!   Incoming Xenosaga III X Dollfie Dream!  No specific character is announced at this point, but it's probably a safe bet to say it will most likely be KOS-MOS ver. 4 and probably T-elos?  Honestly, Volks has been hitting all the right notes for me for the past couple of month, first they announced Sakura Shinguji dollfie dream and now Xenosaga III?  This is just perfect as I have always been a die hard KOS-MOS fan, I was very sad that the game itself never quite reached its full potential and the developer monolith soft had to bring an abrupt end to the story by ending it with chapter III Also sprach Zarathustra.  With the story basically end and with no sequel in sight, there was little hope to see more KOS-MOS related merchandise; but this announcement changed all of that!  A possible KOS-MOS Dollfie Dream is just what I needed in my family of Dollfie Dream..... Xenosaga series might have ended, but KOS-MOS will live on as my next Dollfie Dream daughter!

  • The first ever doll party in the earthquake and tsunami devastated Tohoku region was held in Sendai, the birthplace of the frictional character Sakura Shinguji from Sakura Taisen.  Much has been discussed about the initial announcement that Dollfie Dream Sakura Shinguji was only going to be available at the event, since many of us living oversea and those who are living in Japan but just cannot make it to the event would have no chance to acquire Sakura directly from Volks.  Eventually, much to the fans' delight, that decision was overturned prior to the event.  In addition, since the two iDOLM@STER Dollfie Dream Miki Hoshii and Haruka Amami were unavailable in Volks USA, the after event lottery become the only way to acquire the newly developed one piece torso body directly from Volks at this time.
