Bermann Blues

October 3rd, 2006 (07:27 am)
Tags:

Photos of the next three Bermanns have been posted...

I have no use for a tanned doll (the next two in line) so I will try for Fogg. It still is very confusing how the email ordering will occur. And since they are on holiday, no one is answering questions.

I have a snowball's chance in hell for a Bermann but I might as well try for it for grins.

I wonder how many people will NOT try because they don't want a tanned Bermann?

I hate the fact the Bermann is such an elitist doll. It makes people crazy. I don't want a Bermann because of the 'status', I want a Bermann because he would be perfect for Eiri. I would even take a blank head and hunt for a body later.

Knowing my luck, the ordering frenzy will occur while we are on vacation...

Cherries.

I would never try for a Bermann. I find "limited" things to be an annoyance in the first place, so really, something as limited and popular as a Bermann...x_x

Good luck, though. ♥

It's bloody annoying and makes the old ticker beat really fast and makes the shoulders crawl up and give me a headache.

I am going to try for one anyway - what the hell.

I'm trying too! If you haven't done it already though, you will need an account at tensiya to be able to finish the order. However, it is being run through e-mail, and someone posted the precise instructions on how to order in the thread about this on DoA. If you still want some help, I'm here! We shall wait together and be e-mailing frantically tonight ^^

Shuichi Sultry

Thanks for the heads-up!

I have my email staged and ready to go.

Now we have to wait until 9:30pm tonight and try our luck.

If you get one and I don't, and if you are willing, I could give Trystan a new home as Eiri.

Good luck. I saw the new Bermanns and was even more impressed by the fact that they're not the mould for me, even though I still find them lovely.

Would it be illegal for me to try for you? Like, if by some miracle of fate, I get drawn (or whatever), to just buy him in your stead? With your proper financial backing, of course. I don't know much about the whack Bermann ordering process, I only remember that it's "unfair", and "weird", simply by the verbal accounts of Bermann's various injustices. I avoid most Bermann conversations and look at pictures.

Tan Bermann is pretty, I do prefer Frog though, even if I wouldn't know what to do with one if one landed on my head tomorrow....

Shuichi looks out the window

Well, they want a bunch of info with the order and you have to have an account with them already. You have to submit the account info as well as mailing name/address and then the order. Do you have an account with Tensiya? I don't know if we could work out the logistics to this. *head hurts*

I know I would not want two Bermanns in case the heavens smiled on us and we both got one. I know I could sell one of the guys to Eternal Serenity, who will trying tonight, too. But could I swing over $2000 in one blow?

The other option I offered Eternal Serenity was if she got one and I didn't, I would be happy to purchase her Hound (she said she would have to sell Trystan if she won) so she could put the money toward the Bermann.

We know each other from local cons and meetups so she knows I would take good care of her guy if she decided to sell. I have also handled Trystan before so it is not like he doesn't know me. He and Shu have even flirted a bit. Turning Trys into Eiri would work, and ES does nice faceups, too, so she could be active in the transformation.

Yep, I have an account at Tensiya, I have to use an anonymizer to access it, but they're aware of that. I could easily receive a Bermann here in Alaska, but I'm afraid I couldn't comp you anything. I wouldn't charge you for it, I just don't want to shoulder a thing. *laugh*

If, by some miracle of fate, we both got one (hah), I could probably afford one on my own... or just pussy out and pass on the doll, or find someone else willing to buy one. Many options are available.

It would be hilarious to find ourselves suddenly so wealthy, but I can't imagine we'd be the only people trying this, so the odds are fairly slim.

Hell, if such a thing happened, us with a Bermann each, I might even be tempted to keep him. I doubt it, but I'm not known for my resistance to temptation.

What's the going rate on these guys? I never did look at that. I know the other guys are around $990 plus shipping, I imagined that's what these ones run.

Here are the prices without shipping:

Manu-$1280
L'Etranger-$1180
Mr.Fogg-$1100

I want Fogg. He is not tanned and he has blond brows.

Scroll down to the last entry and last photo of this link.

If they would take a credit card with someone else's name/billing address on it, then this could fly with you trying, too.

I am going to change my home computer clock to Korean time like others have done.

I have limited internet access while I'm at work -- dialup only, only when it's slow. I toggled all the pictures off to make pages load faster. I rarely visit DoA unless it's slow as hell at work, but I do hit lj and DoD sometimes, and always gmail.

However, I did see the pictures before I went to work this morning (which is why I commented on liking frogg better than the tans *laugh*)

If you can research the whole cc thing for me while I'm at work, that'd be fab. If not, I can ask about when I'm off, in about three hours.

I didn't have time to check the relase date and time, before I left. I just saw the tan Bermanns and Frogg, and their cute pics (didn't read much text). I disctintly remember thinking, 'Lygor" when I saw the "paradise" bermann... and squinting at Frogg and thinking about how awesome it was that the dolls that spoke to me the most were comparitively easy and cheap. *laugh*

I'll check my email now and then, for the next three hours... work is hella fast today, so I can't predict how often.

Also!

I would be willing to split the doll with you if a financial pinch occurs. I need a body (bodies), and obviously have little actual desire for a Bermann head. Since it's a Dollshe NS, it'll match up with my boy wonders fantastically, so I am not at all averse.

I'm not insisting or implying that's my preference, to be clear. I'm just saying, these are hella expensive dolls, and we're both on our way out of state on vacation. If push comes to shove, it might make things easier.

My actual ideal occurance? You 'win' the doll, you pay for the doll, you keep the doll, I watch. *laugh*

Nasake - name

I am open to the collab possibility for the future!

I think the NS Bermann is a Bermann body, if I read it correctly earlier today. The tanned Bermanns have regular Dollshe bodies because of some reason Tensiya gave about the company not making tanned Bermann bodies (I think).

We are now owners of heads without bodies! *laughs* I expect the Husky head sometime this week since she sent him EMS.

Others are concerned about the billing address not matching the mailing address so I suspect it would not be a good thing to try it.

*shrug* It's your call. It seems like it'd be simple to do in a variety of ways, but it is, after all, your doll. Good luck again. It'd be neat to finally have closure.

Posted at: October 3rd, 2006 10:22 pm (UTC)

Yeah, some closure on not getting yet another doll in only a 24 hour period. *laughs*

Well, Shuichi is sitting next to me in some of his new underwear. I am working on some costume bits for that flower dress right now, waiting to hit the send button of a pre-composed email. My laptop clock is set to Korean time, too. What a putz am I!

I hope he will bring me good luck by being close to the laptop - it WOULD be for his Eiri so he should have some incentive to be a good luck charm. But if not, that's fine, too.

It will happen or it won't.

I wonder when we find out who got one?

Hatori

I suspect after they tunnel out from the hundreds of emails and find the first ten requests of each doll, then they will send out notifications to the winners.

I am not hanging by my email...
