Mattel's absolutely stunning mishandling of my last complaint has lead me to decide now is the time to purge my collection, which means over the next few weeks/months i'll be sorting stuff and listing it here, on fb and probably ebay too.
there's 6 years of collecting to go through, and it's a very very large collection.
Of course, as I do play with my dolls, they're not in original outfits neccisarily, and i'm not sure I can be bothered restoring them to their factory looks. I redressed them because I preferred them that way, so they'll probably be sold "as is"
I have a lot of playsets in various states of disassembly, a lot of teeny tiny accessories, clothes, shoes, whole dolls, ooak customs...
so much stuff.
it's insane how much stuff I accumulated.
I'll be starting with the MIB stuff I never got around to opening.
Photos when I can be bothered digging through the boxes but from what I know I have:
Sweet Screams Frankie - £30
Sweet Screams Draculaura - £30
Coffin Bean Twyla - £15
Frightmares Penelope -£8
Frightmares the fire one I can't remember the name of - £8
Vinyl Deuce - £8
Some megablocks minis
the student lounge (I can't find this atm, it's somewhere in the damn house)
oob: diener, coffin bean
And a whole load of OOB dolls listed here:
Most of them are £10 each and don't come with their stands.
I'm selling stands separate for £2 each but I need to count them.
Ask for individual pricings, some might be slightly more, some slightly less but the average is £10. The ones wearing not much are gonna be like £5-8
I'll try to remove stuff as it sells.
This is a bit harder with the accessories as i've sold a few individually now. I'll see what I can do there.
Anyway, most accessories and clothes are £2 each
The Draculaura newspaper set isn't complete (missing film and tights) so it's £15
well you know what I'm waiting for you to list ;) lol hehe.
do you have mega blocks Spectra and Abbey?
Wow. I'll be watching and good luck. I've been following your troubles :(
but really, after tonight I just sorta... want it gone. I'm hurting too much.
of course everyone's already crowding around all "me me me" because that's what people are like isn't it?
anyway, more pics.
I also have a bunch of reboot stuff.
and a whole load of stuff in various boxes that needs sorting.
I just don't have the energy right now. I know I want rid, but I haven't got the energy to do that. I took my camera upstairs fully intending to start photographing playsets, i fell asleep for 5 hours instead.
be useful to just have someone come in and take it and give me like a few grand to take it all but... yeah.
I probably will regret getting rid of everything, so i'll try to keep some. But I dunno, the hurt's pretty huge right now and the feelings of misery and pain when I look over at them is quite acute.
I need more big boxes to just sorta, hurl them into until I feel stronger.
i hate Mattel so much for doing this to me. there was just no reason for them to be so cruel. that copy/paste email was especially vindictive and nasty. I mean, there's a real level of horrible to that. the deception, the lies... it's just mean spirited and cruel. and messaging me to say "we'll phone" and not phoning, it's like.. they enjoy messing with me. I bet they're delighted to know how much they broke me and how much hurt they caused. Because damn... they have really ruined everything here.
And it was all so unnecessary. It was all so needlessly crappy of them. I don't get it, what did they hope to achieve? Why couldn't they just talk to me like a human being?
why did they have to be so horrible?
Hmmmmm i dont wanna sound like an ass but i have my eye on some things. That Coffin Bean Twyla for example. I just have to be able to afford what you'd like for them :x
Man.... i can't believe Mattel actually went this far. To take a complaint from someone who actually wants to see it through to the end and just block them from contact. Its...terrible. Get Watchdog on their asses.
omg watchdog is that still going? I remember that show from like years ago.
yeah not to be an ass either but I do have my eye on some things too but take your time take all the time you need, hope you feel better soon.
I can't find half my Barbies but I started that purge. I'm keeping like. 5 dolls from that box. mh will start this evening.
http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/flying_purple_monkfish/m.html?_nkw=&_... listing on ebay, it's easier and people on facebook were being jerks.
Mostly Barbies atm. It was the first box I grabbed down.
I have to find the rest of the fashionistas, and then the MH playsets.
then the MH purging starts.
Shelf one sorted. 5 dolls removed.
I'm on the fence about Kasumi? is that her name? damn I lose track. But yeah, i'm not sure if I like her or not. her outfit kinda... really blinds me.
She might be like River and just needs a less pink plastic terrible thing.
three shelves left to go. Not sure how many more i'll end up picking out from shelf 2, i'm working on my "signature character" shelves first to pick out characters I just flat out don't care that much about and only had for completeness sake. Dolls i've always just felt a bit... emotionally numb toward are gonna get new homes where they can get loved.
I found a few dolls have kinda sticky hair, but then, that's probably from being sat on a shelf for 6 years. and spider carcasses in their hair ahahaha, appropriate.
Kiyomi? ha. I bought her just cos of my natural obsession with Japan but her doll is a bit blah.
i still want coffin bean twyla tho before i spend all my bank account balance again
idk how to say it without sounding like an arse. :(
hahah yeah I found her, she's in the box at the very bottom of my wardrobe. Poor girl came all the way from the US and then sat in a box. Oops.
yes Kiyomi! that's it! I lose bloody track man. There's so many.
Thats actually how i think just about all of my import ladies have ended up. In a stack up in the loft.
Are you gonna put everyone on ebay? hope i can swoop in in time and get that winners bid.
most of it probably. I listed some playsets on fb but no interest atm. Probably priced too high.
