The Recalls' Arrival Photos (finally!)

April 11th, 2007 (01:14 am)
contemplative

current mood: contemplative

Okay, I finally got ALL the photos done!

First off: rat, fullmetalsqishy, mmc_ningyouai and I met at the local Blackeyed Pea to eat and open the box there.



Gadesh and Trans hit is off immediately.






They are sitting on the large box holding our Recalls!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
After watching the place fill up with more and more people, and knowing the box was gigantic, we finally decided to go elsewhere. Since my folks' place was close, I called to see if we could come over. No one answered the phone, so we descended on the empty and unsuspecting house.

fullmetalsqishy and rat guard the box until we are ready to attack it.


fullmetalsqishy had his handy-dandy knife ready to go.


Popcorn packing!


mmc_ningyouai hugs her box.


Presenting - our boxes! (yeah, that's large me!)


fullmetalsqishy and his skillful knife-work again.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And now some serious unpacking, with even more peanuts!






~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Kuroku, Derisa, Bou and Trans sit quietly out of the way...


...while Gadesh watches from the top of the chair.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

More serious unpacking. Thanks, junkyspot, for the great packing you did for these guys! Wow!







~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Eureka! Actual doll boxes are opened!


And immediately we get to see the great default outfits our guys came with!


junkyspot sent little Sargent Frog keychains as extras, along with a nice congrats letter. What a NICE guy! Thanks again, Emory!




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Time to unwrap the mummys!





















~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Time to remove the protective mask and see if this Recall is Yuki Eiri!


I had to remove my glasses so I could see up-close.


Nope, he is not Eiri, but the special faceup looks great on this now unknown character.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Time to compare and contrast!






~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Reno gets his wig.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We just plop them down on the floor and they immediately stand like rocks, even with arms extended and all over the place. Amazing! Dollzone dolls are great! And note the extended arms! They don't flop down!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gadesh gets Reno's default wig... and looks great in it as always, the minx!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

With all the wigs I have, I didn't bring one along for the unknown. I thought we were getting the long brown wig in the promo photo so this long girly wig was a surprise. Luckily, the guy looks good in it!




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Comparison shots: Reno is a little taller and definitely darker in skintone. Reno has pretty hazel eyes and unknown has pretty pink eyes.






~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Trans the Hound is a little taller then the Recalls.




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wigs again.






~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Time to see how that default outfit looks!






~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dudes in duds.














~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gadesh is such a cutie!




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, how tall ARE you, Reno?


And it looks like someone loves you!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And now, some group pictures with the new guys! (the rest of my Crew were at home so they missed out on the photoshoot)
Front Row: Bou, Kuroku, Derisa, Gadesh; Back Row: Reno, unknown, Trans






~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Then my mother's doll, Precious, had to be in the photo, too! Kuroku holds her.




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Derisa, Kuroku and Precious.


Gadesh.




Derisa.


Bou.


Reno.


unknown.


Trans.


Another group shot, this time with Precious.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Everyone quickly got tired of posing so Trans and Gadesh started flirting.












~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bou pounces on Reno and starts chattering in Japanese.




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Kuroku and Derisa snuggle.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bou wants to play!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Unknown looks at his frog.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It turns in to a game of 'keep away' with Bou.












~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bou finally wins!






~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Then unknown gives Bou a piggyback ride.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

fullmetalsqishy gets Trans to take a great pose.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gadesh and Trans again, those flirts.
















~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bou and unknown pop over for a chat.




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Precious joins the chat.








~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Beautiful Gadesh flaunts her new blond hair.








~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Trans puts his coat on to leave, and Gadesh suddenly ignores him. Poor Trans!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thanks for looking!

Yeah, Kane is a brat, but he also loves the smaller, younger guys and is willing to hold them in his lap and play games with them to keep them occupied. He may have spawned lots of kids and has never met many of them, but the ones he DOES know about, he does love and cherish them, as much as a typical horn dog would. Nasake and Chikara's fight does distress him to a degree but instead of dealing with it, he goes off to be his rakish self.

Awesome! I'm still debating whether to keep my WS Recall head. I sold the NS one to someone on DoA.

I'm conflicted, I really don't have any plans for him, but I almost hate to let him go since he's so limited. =P

It's weird to see where Trans is taller than the DZ boys, because that one lineup picture on DoA had the DZ body as taller. Maybe Dollshe boys slump. lol

I sorta did not have plans for mine, either. While I had hoped I could have pulled a Yuki Eiri out of him, he doesn't look like Eiri at all, and I was kinda glad for it. The DZ body is nice but the arms are a little too short. And Eiri would have more 'graceful' hands and feet.

I think the height all depends on the individual resin pour and how the joints end up fitting together. If each joint has only a few millimeters added to it because of the pour, eventually that will add up to an extra centimeter. That's the only way I can explain why Reno is just a tad taller than Kane.

Dollshe guys definitely slump! And slouch!

Personally, I would say keep the head for now. You could use it as a dummy head to paint on, maybe do some ear mod experiments. Just enjoy messing with the head. You can always clean him off again.

Besides, the going price on the Recall just might go up because of the limited issue.

Re: wow

We sometimes have arrival openings at our monthly doll meetups, too! My Chibs were opened at the early December meetup, so all the local dolls and humans got to watch! It was really fun!

The pink wig is really soft! I wish Shuichi's eyebrows were not black so he could wear it as a permanent wig. However, his wine wig looks wonderful and elegant on him so I don't complain too much about it.

Re: wow

In this case, we had WON the Recall dolls! It was easier and cheaper to have them sent to me, then everyone getting together for the opening.

Those pictures are such fun! I love the way these pictures always seem to turn into a tale, complete with strong character personalities. :D

Well, you hit the nail on the head about characters and such - part of the reason why I enjoy these bits of resin so much. They DO have personalities, even when they are all just sitting around at a meetup while their keepers are talking. Those who are inclined to write or draw or take photos are inspired to be creative with these posable models.

It is weird how something like these dolls can seem so alive with just a tilt of the head or a hand gesture. I guess that is why some people get freaked by them.

Changing wigs and eyecolours can change the personalities, too. Changing the paint on the face can strip a doll of his/her character.
