From boots to bag, this one has it all for me.  The glasses were a nice detail add and the thing that pushed me over the edge and got me to add this one to my wish list from my dealer.  For me, the added value was that he is sooooo Pacific Northwest.  Had to try and buy.

So that wraps up the images from The Industry Lovesick Collection.  While it is not what I collect, I loved the vibrant color combos and nod to recent Gucci runway shows.  I also loved all the additional little details Mr Buttry added in…particularly the glasses.  I don’t know about other collectors but for THIS collector, it’s those little “value adds” that push me from a “ well I like it” to an “I have to have it”.  As a collector, it makes me so happy…as a business person, it makes sense as a business move.  All around good!

Also, it was really nice to see David bringing back some favorite characters from discontinued lines.  It shows he is listening to the collectors and that is always a good thing.

Ok, so if you are interested in any of these dolls and you are not part of the WClub and already contacted your dealers, you need to act fast.  These dolls are going quickly and some may already be sold out.  If you don’t know where to check for dealers go to the link below.

Integrity Toy’s “The Industry” 2017 Revealed

©2017 Integrity Toys, Inc

Integrity Toy’s made their first collection reveal to the newly minted 2017 WClub the other day and all I can say is Wow!  it’s a doozy!  As Dolce and Gabbana and many other designers are going to the so called millennials for inspiration and a new ad campaigns, David Buttry appears to be pulling from the same pool…at least with the fashions and accessories.

Millennials = consisting of individuals born between 1982 and 2004.

There have been a lot of positives and negatives written about Millennials.  I will stick with the positive.  It has been noted that they grew up in an electronics-filled and increasingly online and socially-networked world.  This helps to explain some of the many new and fabulous accessories that come with this collection.  Hope you enjoy. 

Keep in mind that these offerings are available through Integrity Toys dealers and were announced to the WClub a few days a go.  If you want any of these …run don’t walk to try and get these.  Some may be sold out already.

Talk about updated hair!  This one is an early favorite for many collectors.  She comes with sandals and boots and while I love the accessories, I am not loving the dress on this one.  It seems way too dowdy for this doll.  She needs edgy and hip in my opinion not docile little school girl.  The doll though with half flocked and half pink tresses…fabulousness!  **note** This doll is articulated at the ankle. The other dolls are not.

Again…the accessories totally MAKE this.  I adore this whole package.  Love the doll, love the clothing, love the accessories.  I would have added big headphones to this look but then the hair would not have been shown off as well….so I understand.

These accessories!!!  A MUST have.  As to the question…”Will Rebecca buy a doll just for the accessories?”.  Well…yes she will.  I do also like the look of this doll but he is very similar to the Ace McFly doll they produced a couple of conventions ago.  I’m still getting him though as the girls and guys in my collection need their makeup artist .Winking smile

David Buttry and his team did an amazing job with this first full scale ‘The Industry” collection.  The accessories alone make this capsule collection worth a look-see.  My only complaint is that…there is a WHOLE lot of black going on here.  It would be nice to see more color coming in.  And also on the subject of black, there was also an absence of it…as in skin tone.  I would have liked to have seen an AA model in this lineup.  There are, however, a whole lot of mix and match pieces that will be fun to pair with other outfits in my collection and I look forward to being the mini stylist with those and sharing on the blog.  I can definitely see my Out of Sight Nadja in many of these outfits.

Again…these dolls are available through Integrity Toys dealers only.  Feel free to click on the link to find them.

Collectors Welcome “The Industry”

At last years IT convention, David Buttry revealed a new product line of dolls called “The Industry”.  This product line is 1/6 Tullabelle.  I am so excited about this line because I have always loved Tullabelle but don’t collect the the larger scale dolls.  Now I can get that look in the scale that I do collect.  Integrity Toys explained that this line will be  “a lighthearted street-influenced collection with a mix of vintage and new. “  It was also stated that this Tullabelle will have friends later on this year too so we will be seeing more.  Can’t wait!

This 12 inch Tullabelle is “the debut of a brand new, ultra-versatile body sculpt”.  She is 12 1/4 inches tall and smaller busted like Nu.Face.  IT has stated that there are new removable bottom leg portions on this doll that will enable collectors to change them out so the models can wear flat shoes as opposed to heels.  Nice!  It was also mentioned that this lady may..in fact…be able to wear Barbie shoes as well.  Love it!  She is available for preorder through Integrity Toys dealers.

The boots!!!  The boots!!!  I also love the ash blond hair.  While most of my collection is vintage couture based, I am looking forward to exploring this product line and am purchasing this doll.  I also think it’s fun that David Buttry gets to expand his design repertoire with this product line.  I adore his Poppy Parker designs and I am sure I will enjoy this new collection as well.  I also really like the fact that Integrity Toys is listening to their customers and continues to give more flexibility and options for the redressing collector community.
