A Dilemma.

A Dilemma.
28 Sep 2010 05:35:29






This is a Azone's 1/3 doll of Nymph from Sora no Otoshimono. I believe there's both manga and anime of the series, and are moderately popular. I like how the character looks, and the doll is a decent approximation of the character (except for the face, but the face on the doll looks nice too).


Normally I'd enjoy looking at dolls like this, and realize that they'd never be available to me anyways, so that's where the thought ends.


...turns out this doll is actually available on AmiAmi. With a monstrous price tag of 50k yen.

I definitely don't want to spend that much money so easily, but the doll is quite tempting. So I was hoping to get a second opinion from anyone here's who's purchased dolls before. Things like whether Azone's 1/3 dolls are worth getting, what sort of maintenance am I looking at, can I money be better spent elsewhere (of course they could!), that sort of thing.

Hopefully one of you can convince me now to buy it :D

Edit: ended up ordering it because they only had 6 left :q

Edit2: Two pictures from Glory was more than enough to convince me to go for that one instead. :q

She is cute, but I like main heroine more.

I understand you have already made a decision... and well, Nymph looks nice :) Why not, really?

The thing I don't like about Azone dolls is that they look rather plain compared to Dollfie Dream things and Korean BJDs. No acrylic eyes, no highly detailed make-up, etc. I can't say anything about Azone joints' quality, but just visually they seem to be a little less accurate. Having this in mind for me it's rather strange to see the 50000 yen tag. With that sum you can buy... for example this cutie (without clothes):





Just a random doll. Forget about it. I didn't want to talk you out of Nymph. Your Nymph is sweet, and I hope you'll become a nice a family :) Look forward to know more about Azone dolls from you!

You have convinced me too easily. :D Checked all the sites and this is indeed the best I've seen so far.

My only issue right now is that they don't have the right shoes for her anymore. I'm gonna make an inquiry about it and see if I can get some results back...

I'm starting to understand your tastes, see! XD
What happened with shoes? Are they sold out or something? If it is discontinued, it's still possible to find some decent alternative, I believe.

Sold out. I asked them and they're planning to make more, but no set dates for it yet... maybe I should look for alternatives, but I'd prefer to do all my shopping there :/

When I was considering buying Ganta the shoes I'd chosen for him were sold out as well. And then on the day I was actually placing my order, they by miracle happened to be in stock. As far as I know they restock their goods quite often, but the hottest things can become sold out very quickly. GSC style, see? :D It will also take them more than a month to create your doll, so you can place an order and start updating their page every day in order to catch those shoes.

Oh, hmm... that's an interesting idea. Maybe that's what I should do.

It's unfortunate that she doesn't have her transparent wings, but probably asking for too much then :)

So, what happened with your AmiAmi order? Did you cancel it or... ?

Yes, I ended up canceling it. I feel a bit bad because I was canceling a lot of other orders to make room for it in my budget... but then, that budget will be going right back into another one in the near future.

I see. But I'm glad everything seems to be ok, cause actually I was a lil worried whether AmiAmi would cancel such an expensive order. Myself, I was canceling a 10,000 yen figure not so long ago and felt nervous about it.

They probably figured that canceling such a limited edition piece won't affect them at all (only 6 available, sold out the moment it got canceled and re-added to the quota). I also think that's the only reason they have stuff left over after it gets released, which are picked are very quickly following the item's release.
