I don’t know if they have plans to make the ones they’ve already made as one-offs or not (Cinderella, Belle, Ariel...any others??) It would be a shame if they didn’t cos the Ariel was so cute...

I'd think they will probably make them with the same sculpts, but a different outfit than the ones released for the charity auction.

Belle would be my must have, and Rapunzel is very cute.


The difference between Dollfie Dreams and Heroin? Heroin is illegal, Dollfie Dreams probably should be.

That earlier release of Belle was completely unknown to me, I actually had to Google it... And as I saw her, I understood why. To me, she doesn't look like Belle at all. I have ignored her quite succesfully. XD Volks has to do a lot better than that, If they want me to buy her. Especially with that kind of price.

It wasn't a release, it was a one-off doll for charity auction. And I was surprised to just learn that being one of those one-off auction dolls doesn't rule them out after all - apparently there actually was a one-off Rapunzel back in 2013, which used the Lieselotte sculpt. You can see how different she looks!

I think their one-off version of Belle was definitely more polished than that 2013 Rapunzel, but it does mean that Belle could still happen and if she does she may look different.

I really want that Super Dollfie Rapunzel. 

I hear that lottery for SD is much worse than DD though? She’s also going to be sold at Disney store. I see that she’s listed at Disneystore with “sales period”. Is it too much to hope that it’s not a click war 😂

She's cute and I would love to see more of the other Disney Princesses but I'm safe so far unless they make Snow White...😆

Now I am bewildered! That one-off Rapunzel looked gorgeous, thank you for showing her, Monty! And don't take me wrong, I really like the new Rapunzel as well, it's looking great. I hope Volks makes just as beautiful Belle too, but a little bit later. I have to save up for her.

Page on Rapunzel is here:

https://www.volks.co.jp/disney/sdgrrapunzel.html

Was that already up? When I posted the main Volks Disney Princess page before, that Rapunzel link over the book wasn't there for me, but maybe I was just having a website issue, so all I saw was the single picture on that main page.

Is it a bit odd that she has the high-heel feet, but is shown shoe-less in most of the pictures?

One thought I had was if and when she needs a replacement wig, are there any super long ones which would work for SD heads? However, the wig included with her is DD-sized so that's how big her head is. While it would require some styling to get the shape right, I know super long wigs exist for DD sized heads.

I have no idea what prompted Volks to go with the equivalent of a DD head size for Rapunzel.

There's a bit at the bottom (in Japanese) of the page which states:

"The items included along with the product are only those shown in the 'set contents'. Does not include heel feet parts."

I noticed the mention of the DD size wig as well. Maybe it's the aesthetic they wanted here, for her to not have a huge head? Since I don't know much about Volks SDs I have no idea if there are other SDs like this.

In general Volks isn't concerned about wig replacements for dolls with unique hairstyles, since AFAIK the original Miku release in Japan was the only time they offered some kind of program to get a spare wig.

I see it now on the English page too. It's bizarre they show her that way, especially barefoot because it's like she's standing on her toes. It explains why I didn't think those pumps were the high heel type though.

The other thing, and it's another I may be completely wrong about, but I thought SDs (or at least SD16s) that came with the high heel feet only came with those parts anyway, and if you wanted the flat feet as well then you bought them separately.

I suspect they used a mock-up on an SDGr heeled feet body In addition to one on the flat feet body because it made the photo look nice. 
 

Belldandy came with both heeled and flat feet, but the flat feet are a whole leg swap, and you have to restring her to do it. It’s not like SD16 where you can just swap the lower leg, but even there you have to release the tension on the elastic. Pretty sure that doesn’t require restringing on SD16, but I haven’t tried yet. 
 

It’s possible they will sell the heeled feet as an extra along with hands.
