Review: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Fluttershy

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is an animated series, which is currently airing on The Hub effective October 10, 2010. This incarnation of the popular Hasbro toy was developed for television by Lauren Faust who is famed for her work on two of Cartoon Network's noted franchises The Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends on all of which she worked with their creator and her husband Craig McCracken.

Yesterday I bought My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Fluttershy.  I didn’t buy her at first since I haven’t seen the show. So I check out the show thinking it would bomb but surprisingly…it was good! Fluttershy became my fav pony because she reminds me of me. ^_^  Anyway  I got her from Wal-Mart for $5.00 plus tax which comes out to $5.30. To my surprise she was the last Fluttershy left along with two Pinkie Pies. The last time I was there was a lot of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic ponies and all six were there and when I got back…. poof! Most of them all gone! I got lucky that Fluttershy was still there.  

Fluttershy came with an animal friend who I assume is her animal friend Angel and a wagon so that Fluttershy can pull the bunny along. There was no twist ties, but a little hard to get out since they were wedge in there.  After I took Fluttershy’s rubber band that was on her bangs her hair was awful. >_<  It didn’t look much like due to her bangs being wave and a mess. So I carefully fixed her bangs with my flatiron. I was nervous while doing hoping I don’t burn her hair since it was my first time doing something like this.  To my surprise it came out perfect and looking more like the character. She has no point in articulation and the wagon doesn’t attach well to her leg.  Also the wheels on the wagon do not rotate. So how are you supposed to pull the bunny in the wagon? Either way I still love my Fluttershy figure and she just look so cute on my shelve with my other collectable toys (that I will post pics soon as I can).

The project will take famous Marvel characters and reintroduce them for a Japanese audience in a 12-part series. The announcement was confirmed at the 2009 San Diego Comic-Con.

Glyos (sometimes mistakenly written as "Gylos") are a small toyline of modular, customizable figures sold by a company called O'Nell Design, designed by Matt Doughty. They became very popular on /toy/ early in the summer of 2009, so popular in fact that some people accused fans of the toy line of essentially trying to market the toys there.

Glyos are between 2" and 3" tall, depending on the body type. There are several body types available in a very wide variety of colors, which helps to disguise the fact that there are actually only a few different molds. Glyos are also available sold in sets of random pieces.
The pieces are all customizable and can be attached in a variety of creative ways, making them excellent sources of customization. Some people buy the figures with the express purpose of customizing them.

Some of the basic body and head types are:
  • Pheyden
  • Exellis
  • Buildman
  • Sarvos
  • Phanost
  • Crayboth
If you want to check the Glyos figures out and or buy them go to . Also check out their sister site for different Glyos characters and designs.

Information on Pullip

Pullip is a collectable fashion doll created by Cheonsang Cheonha of  South Korea in 2003. Pullip has an oversized head on a jointed plastic body, with eyes that can change positions and wink. Pullip was first marketed by Jun Planning of Japan, but since early 2009, it has been marketed by Groove of Korea. Pullip (풀잎) means 'blade of grass/leaf' in Korean. Since the release of the original female doll, other lines of dolls have been added: male companion dolls Namu (나무, tree) and Taeyang (태양, sun), younger sister doll Dal (, moon), and Dal's best friend Byul (, star). There is also a miniature line of Little Pullip and Little Dal. Pullip dolls are often customized. Later releases have wigs that can be replaced and the eye color can easily be changed.

Customizing: Like the more expensive ball-jointed dolls (BJD), these dolls are easily customizable. Pullip dolls released prior to March 2004 had rooted hair, but the scalp pieces can be swapped with other Pullips. Dolls after this point have wigs, and their hair can be changed more easily.The head and eye mechanism can be taken apart with a simple screw driver. Changes range from minor such as wig or eye-color swapping, to custom dolls of completely new designs. More intensive customization can include re-sculpting of the face or body, and painted or carved tattoos.

Review: Pullip Xiao Fan Fashion Doll

Meet Xiao Fan! She is a 12-inch tall Pullip Doll. Her tagline: "China is the last eastern country. There is a modern and attractive town. I hear the sound of Chinese fiddle in the evening... Feel like so." Her accessories: three-quarter-length pants, floral hair accessory, and doll stand.

I bought her a few months ago on She has a type 3 body(Pullips have different body type due to when they are made or change of body type to fit the purpose of the doll). The type 3 body is kind of a pain. The legs are hard to bend and sometimes I am afraid to bend them to far or to hard that it may break. Pullips are fragile collector dolls. There is a mechanism that can open and close their eyes, and look from side to side. The shoes were hell to put on. I hopefully did not break her foot when I put one of them on. I heard a loud crack and I am afraid to take it off to see if it was ok. Overall she is a beautiful doll and expensive, but does not cost as much as a BJD. If you don't have enough cash for a BJD then Pullips are the next best thing and more affordable.

Review: Alice Cherry Blossom Qee

The Alice Cherry Blossom Qees from Toy2R are 2.5" tall. They are fantasy character design of "Pig-Artist" Charles Stephen - based on the series of a little Victorian pig doll named Alice Cherry Blossom - produced in a joint-project with Korea's ELFDOLL ball-jointed-doll (BJD) company.

I bought the Alice Cherry Blossom Qee, version No3. Ballerina Alice. She has five parts of articulation, which are her arms and her legs and her head. On mine the right arm is very hard to move. I am not sure if it is just mine or the other versions of Alice are the same way. Either way she is a very cute Qee. And if you like Charles Stephen's dolls and can't affored one then this is the next best thing. They are affortable and cute! The other versions of Alice Cherry Blossom are Gothic Hoodie Alice, Alice Cherry Blossom, School Angel Alice and School Angel Billie.
