IFDC 2018 - four new Poppy Parker dolls unveiled!

The IFDC convention took place from 27 till 30 of June 2018 in Las Vegas. This year, as usual, Integrity Toys made the convention and companion doll’s as well as the centerpiece plus one more IT Direct doll- and they were all Poppy Parker dolls! They were unveiled late Saturday night by the company team, another small collection created by the talented David Buttry. Every attendee also received a table gift from Integrity Toys, an exclusive Poppy scaled guitar designed just for the event. The four dolls make a very coherent group, all hippie themed, appropriately enough for the psychedelic theme of the convention. I like the variety of skintones and styles, even though a Darla with a big afro would have looked better than another black Poppy. They have different feet between them, the first has the high heeled foot, while the rest of them have the articulated foot to better match their shoe style. Always remember that lower legs are interchangeable and can pop out to be replaced with another type, if you desire. Regarding the new hand sculpts introduced for this collection: meh. They have no use than maybe one or two poses and that’s it. Plus they do not look as realistic as her normal hands, but more cartoony and almost weirdly squished. What do you think?

Since the number of dolls made is larger than the attendees, the remainder is to be available through lottery to W Club members only. So if you are not a member, you will have to try the secondary market for them. The lottery will be held approximately in ten days and members have until the 25th of July to pay the dolls. Let’s see the dolls that were presented.

I like this one, although, as mentioned earlier, a Darla with a huge afro would have looked better for me. Doll and outfit are great and would make a nice addition to the collection. Love the hat, it is very Jacquemus and will match other summer styles well. I’m still undecided about which doll I will enter the lottery for, but this one is ahead at the moment.

A beautiful girl with lovely colouring and a cute outfit. The hat and sandals are again great. I’m a bit on the fence for this one as I already have the Swinging London Poppy that has the same hairstyle but more intense red hair and paler make up. Hmmmm...

This was the centerpiece doll so her edition is the smallest, only 350 dolls. I’m not entering for this one, the dress print reminds me of a couple of previous dresses and her colouring matches a couple of my Poppies too. Easy pass.

Item # PP131

Summer of Love

Poppy Parker™

2018 IFDC Souvenir Doll

Approx. Ship Date: In-stock, ships once the lottery winners have paid

Retail: $175.00 + Shipping

Edition Size: 500

IMG_5889.JPG

Head Sculpt: Poppy Parker

Body Type: Poppy 1.5

Foot Sculpt: Industry articulated foot

Skin Tone: Hungarian

Hair Color: Ash blonde mix

Eyelashes: Yes, hand-applied

Quickswitch: No

IMG_5890.JPG

Included:

  • 12" fully articulated doll with fully rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes
  • Fashion (cream colored maxi length lace dress with halter-top and waist wrap)
  • Lace-up sandals
  • Flower-covered head piece
  • Handbag
  • Jewelry set (earrings and bracelets)
  • Pair of regular hands
  • Alternate "peace sign" hand
  • Alternate "I love you sign" hand
  • Doll stand
IMG_5891.JPG
IMG_5892.JPG

If her hair colour was darker, she’d be a dead ringer for Lana Del Rey, flowers on the head etc.  She’s beautiful and has the Hungarian skintone that makes her different from blond Poppies with pale make up I have. Her earrings and bag are gorgeous. I’m not crazy about the dress though and the braids in her hair mean less versatility. 

IMG_5893.JPG

As I mentioned earlier, all IFDC attendees received an exclusive bonus souvenir gift, a 60's themed guitar designed to fit with this quartet of dolls. This accessory is not available online,but  there's a picture of the centerpiece doll with the guitar in-hand.

The dolls pictured are prototypes. Final fabrics, colors and textures may vary slightly. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only.

Poppy Parker 2018 City Sweetheart capsule collection reveal!

We knew that this year’s Poppy Parker collection theme would be something relevant to New York, as it was already announced back in the 2017 convention. And indeed, during the first Poppy reveal of the year, we discovered that the new collection is named City Sweetheart and it finds Poppy dressed in a variety of outfits for various occasions around the Big Apple. It is a small, capsule collection*, with four dolls available via dealers ( three in August and one in September) and a two-doll giftset available via right-to-buy lottery from IT Direct in late summer. I love two of the dealer dolls and the giftset, while the other two leave me cold. All doll’s have the high heeled foot, a first for a regular Poppy collection. There will not be a second wave of dolls in this collection as David mentioned, but the four IFDC Poppies, two W Club ones and the IT convention ones will be more than enough for the rest of the year.

* capsule collection is a condensed version of a designer’s vision, often limited edition, which transcends seasons and trends by being functional - read commercial. It’s made up of a few pieces which can be easily combined and interchanged.

Let’s see the collection dolls in detail, shall we?

IMG_5796.JPG

This is the best doll of the collection and one of the best Poppy Parker doll’s ever released. Both doll and fashion are perfect and the accessories are fantastic! A book! That bag! The pendant! New cat eye sunglasses! Only minus: the dreaded, delicate, prone to break small hoop earrings. Her style is refined beatnick; the real thing would wear flat ballerina shoes.

IMG_5802.PNG

Second favourite doll from this collection! I love everything about Co-Ed Cutie, from her skintone and make up to her outfit and amazing accessories! More books! A pencil! Cat eye glasses! A watch! Her blouse print resembles molecules, a nice nod to her studies, emphasised by her Physics book! I’m confirmed for both this and Off Beat, which is great! During the Q&A session in the W Club forum that followed the presentation email, David Buttry said her skintone does not match Sweet Confection body, just in case anyone was thinking about using the body for a replacement.

IMG_5806.PNG

Not liking this one very much. It’s probably the styling and colours that don’t make her pop out to me. She has the new sculpted gloves hands that finally put an end to the oven mittens we amassed over the years.

Item # PP138

Peach Parfait

Poppy Parker™ Dressed Doll

The City Sweetheart Collection

Approx. Ship Date: August

Suggested Retail: $135.00 US

Available Via Dealers

Edition Size: 900

IMG_5809.PNG

Head Sculpt: Poppy Parker

Body Type: Poppy 1.5

Foot Sculpt: High-heeled

Skin Tone: Japan

Hair Color: Platimum/Light Blonde Mix

Eyelashes: Yes, Hand-applied

Quickswitch: No

IMG_5810.PNG

Included:

  • 12" fully articulated doll with fully rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes
  • Fashion (light peach, full-length multi-layered gown with miniature bow details and soft, shimmering glitter accents)
  • Elbow length gloves
  • Clutch purse
  • Faux-pearl necklace, bracelet and earrings
  • High-heeled shoes
  • Alternate pair of hands
  • Doll stand
IMG_5811.PNG

Peach is my all time least favourite colour, so I definitely don’t like this one. She’s very washed out with her pale skin and colouring, so not even the doll attracts me like other pale Poppies before her, who at least had a smokey or better defined eye to make them appealing. I like the shawl like detail around her shoulders. And it seems over mittens stick around for longer gloves, instead of the new type we saw in the Vanessa FR giftset with the sculpted hand and fabric arm. Why should this ugly thing continue? The plain accessories make this one even more boring.

Girl Talk

Approx. Ship Date: Mid-Sept.

Retail: $175.00 US + Shipping

Included:

  • 12" fully articulated dolls, each with fully rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes
  • Poppy's fashion: day dress with bold engineered stripes and matching petticoat
  • Darla's fashion: brightly colored capri pants and 60s inspired printed crop top
  • Open-toe pumps for Poppy

  • Faux-straw clutch purse
  • "Cool cat" tote bag
  • 2 pairs of sunglasses

IMG_5816.PNG

What a lovely giftset! I’m a sucker for anything green, so the colour was the first thing that struck me, with its great combinations and bright hue. Darla looks gorgeous here, in her capri pants, bright accessories and flamboyant hairdo. Poppy compliments her nicely, if more demurely so, with her lovely striped dress, brooch and sublime straw clutch. I will enter the lottery for these two ladies in late summer.

Tonner Doll Toyfair 2018 reveals

It was good to see that among the other toy companies participating at The New York International Toyfair this year was Tonner Doll, with many new releases, either already announced (but not seen) dolls, final versions of dolls that had already been previewed sometime ago or first time appearances. amazing and it was so great to see and hear about everything that’s happening in the doll world. The dolls and accessories shown below include everything showed at Toyfair with a couple of new additions. When you click through to the site there are buy buttons on many of the items in this release, if still available. Some are shipping now and some have projected availability dates in the future. Please be aware that if you add one of those items to your cart and complete the transaction, you will be charged for all the items now and they’ll ship as they become available. Tonner Doll allocated limited quantities on some items to their direct sale inventory and once they are sold the only way to obtain them will be through one of the Tonner Doll retailers, should they have availability left. Let’s check the dolls out!


T18DCDD01 Wonder Woman-Training Armor - $210.00

Featuring a portrait sculpt of Gal Gadot with hand painted details, this ¼ scale figure on the new 16" RTB 101 hard plastic/vinyl body, is heavily articulated and outfitted in a replica of the Themyscira training armor as worn in the Wonder Woman movie. The removable molded armor is movie accurate and hand painted. “Bracelets of Submission” and three sets of hands (relaxed, fists and gripping) are included with this figure. Diana’s sword, shield and fully adjustable base are available separately. Features mink colored saran hair in a long braid and dark brown eyes. June/July estimated shipping (subject to change).

IMG_4749.JPG

Another great Wonder Woman doll, again very accurate and detailed. I wonder how many of the people who got the first one would get this one too.She comes without the stand, which is always a problem. Would I buy just the outfit? Maybe. But, there’s a second version of this one...

 

T18DCGS01 - WW Training Armor Deluxe Set - $310.00

IMG_4751.JPG

Featuring a portrait sculpt of Gal Gadot with hand painted details, this ¼ scale figure on the new 16" RTB 101 hard plastic/vinyl body, is heavily articulated and outfitted in an exacting replica of the Themyscira training armor as worn in the Wonder Woman movie. The removable molded armor is movie accurate and hand painted. “Bracelets of Submission”,  three sets of hands (relaxed, fists and gripping) , her mythical sword, shield and fully adjustable base are included with this ultra-limited set in a custom, collapsible box. Features mink colored saran hair in a long braid and dark brown eyes. June/July estimated shipping (subject to change).

IMG_4750.JPG

Same doll as before but with all her weapons added, apart from the lasso. We get to see the lovely braided hair at the back here, great job. 

 

T18DCDD03 - Wonder Woman Variant # 1 - $275.00

The new 16" RTB 101 hard plastic/vinyl body has 15 points of articulation and Gal Gadot’s likeness is captured in detail. Saran is used to create lifelike hair set off with an accurate, highly detailed tiara. Accurately sculpted depicting her movie costume, the WW armor consists of a molded breast plate with a genuine leather battle skirt; her armband and “Bracelets of Submission” are made of real metal. Wonder Woman carries her golden lasso in a genuine leather harness. Boots are made of detailed vinyl and resin.  Figure comes with changeable open hands, fists and gripping hands. Fully adjustable Wonder Woman themed stand, sword and shield are available separately. Wonder Woman has mink saran hair and dark brown eyes. June/July estimated shipping (subject to change).

IMG_4752.JPG

Third WW doll. She’s like the first release, with the cape added. I don’t like the cape, always thought it looks out of sync with the rest of the outfit. The cape is sold separately as well, for those who have the first doll and want to add it. Still no stand. I really don’t like this policy with dolls. They all should come with a stand, so the buyer can display them properly. Making people buy them separately does not look nice, to me at least. 

 

T17DCOF01  Wonder Woman Gala Gown Set (outfit only) - $109.00

IMG_4753_sRGB.JPG

Featuring an asymmetrical plunging neckline, and draped accurately to reflect the 1918 period, the gown is completed with a train and, in true Amazonian warrior fashion, Diana conceals her “God Killer” sword, which is included. Matching blue pumps (authorized by Warner Bros.) are included should you choose to dress another Tonner doll in this outfit. As Shown on WW#1 with an updo. Shipping Mid-March.

IMG_4754_sRGB.JPG

This is one of her outfits I really wanted to have. The sword does look plastic in the back photo but I’ll wait to see it in real life. Could not preorder it fast enough. 

 

T18DCOF01 Wonder Woman 2018 Black Cape (outfit element) - $50.00

Replicating the one from the 2017 movie, this version is complete with a hood and arm holes and the chevroned elements are top-stitched to accentuate the accurate detail. As shown on WW#1. June/July estimated shipping (subject to change).

IMG_4755.JPG

And here’s the cape, as sold separately. Meh.

 

T18GWDD01 Scarlett O’Hara BBQ dress (dressed doll) - $235.00

Scarlett’s chiffon gown, emblazoned with green floral sprays and highlighted with a deep green satin sash, is further accentuated by a wide-brimmed straw hat with a generously proportioned matching green satin tie. The outfit is complete with a petticoat, pantyhose and green “velvet” pumps. Featuring the 16" RTB 101 hard plastic/vinyl body and new Vivien Leigh portrait sculpt with green eyes and mink saran hair. Acrylic base stand included.  Limited Edition 300 Shipping Mid-March.

IMG_4756_sRGB.JPG

I wonder why did Robert Tonner feel the need to make a new sculpt for his Scarlett dolls. It does not look like Vivien Leigh at all and it’s harsh and square looking, compared with the previous sculpt. She looks more like Heddy Lamar would have looked had she gotten the part. And that’s no 17” waist, fiddle dee dee.

 

T18OTDD03  (previously T17OTDD03) Jamie Fraser  (dressed doll) - $235.00 (PROTOTYPE)

A portrait sculpt of Sam Heughan, the actor portraying Jamie Fraser in the TV series Outlander, by Robert Tonner, authorised by the licensor. Jamie is wearing a monochromatic but elegant black suit and striking white dickie and cuffs, brocade vest, stockings and black knee high faux leather boots, from the episode where he makes his formal entrée to French society, attendind the levee at Versailles hosted by King Louis XV. Offered on the 17" “Matt” body with Jamie’s deep rich auburn hair and blue eyes. Acrylic base stand also included.  Limited Edition 500. June/July estimated shipping (subject to change).

IMG_4757_sRGB.JPG

We had already seen a peek of this sculpt months ago, when a photo partially showing the doll was posted on social media and now we have the full monty. He looks a lot like the actor, the outfit is gorgeous and I’m so glad I preordered him way way back. Only thing I don’t like: the boots that look plastic (the description says faux leather) and cheapen the whole look. He’s has a larger edition than Versailles Claire had, so that’s good, I hope that his body is tall enough to stand next to Claire, who, lest we forget, has Wonder Woman’s body. I will be able to tell sooner, rather than later, since the first WW Doll is almost here and I have a few Matt Tonner dolls to measure them against her.

 

T17OTDD04 Claire’s New Look (dressed doll) - $235.00

Claire and Christian Dior converge as she re-interprets 18th-century fashion with a version of Dior’s 1940’s “bar suit”. The bespoke off-white satin jacket and floor-length black satin skirt are accented by sparkling faux diamond earrings, white gloves, stockings, family crested bag and bow-front black pumps. The outfit also features a black straw hat which completes the ensemble. Claire’s New Look is on the  16" RTB 101 hard plastic/vinyl body and has a Robert Tonner portrait sculpt of Caitriona Balfe with mink saran hair color and ice blue eyes. Acrylic base stand also included. Limited Edition 300. June/July estimated shipping (subject to change).

IMG_4758.JPG

La pièce de résistance! That’s the outfit I most wanted to have Claire in, even more than the red Versailles dress! The genius of Terry Dresbach, Outlander’s costume designer shines through in all of her work for the series, but so much more in this particular outfit. A 40s woman, getting her clothes made in 18th century France, presaging the New Look that would debut a few years after her first time travel. Brilliant. Preordered already!

Introducing Modernist Eugenia Perrin-Frost, the newest offering from the Fashion Royalty® Collection by Integrity Toys, as chosen by 2017 W Club members, who voted for her features, from her warm and vibrant skin tone (a first for this character!) to her hair colour. Her fashionable ensemble was designed by Jessy Ayala. Eugenia Perrin-Frost is a 12.5-inch articulated vinyl doll with fully rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes. Her ensemble is composed of a pale blue one-piece dress, accessorized with sky-high metallic blue high-heeled boots, a matching purse, jewelry and sunglasses. Doll stand and certificate of authenticity included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up.

2018 Wclub_Eugenia_08.jpg

2017 W Club members finally get to see the result of their vote from last year. The doll Is beautiful and elegant, with the right amount of fashion bling to make her a standout. The dress is simple but with an intricate detail at the front. Her accessories are perfect, even though I’d prefer the boots with closed toes. The make up has Going Public vibes (the mouth and general design) combined with Tricks Of The Trade or Spring Forward (eyeshadow) - EDIT: She has the Spectacular screening in different colours. She’s not the smash Vanessa Perrin was when she got the dark skin treatment (Second Skin) but she’s fab. I’m getting her with my membership.

In 2018, Poppy Parker revisits some of the best looks that she’s worn in her modelling career so far, with a twist. The W Club introduces the first entry in the “City Sweetheart” Collection, as designed by David Buttry. Poppy Parker is a 12-inch fully articulated fashion doll with fully rooted hair and handapplied eyelashes. Dressed for a sunny summer day in New York city, Poppy looks as sweet as ever in her delightful, high-color day dress! She comes complete with a purse, jewelry, shoes, bright pink and bejeweled cat-eye glasses and a bottle of her favorite orange flavored soda pop. Doll stand and certificate of authenticity included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up.

I’m not crazy about this year’s upgrade Poppy. The eyes look weird (She has the Reluctant Debutante screening but with applied eyelashes), the hair is blonde (I have too many blonde Poppies), the lipstick too light pink and the dress looks like a variation of the one She’s Arrived had. She has the new high-heeled feet. I love the shoes and the bow details on her bag and bracelet. Easy pass for me.

Rayna Ahmadi, the 2018 NU. Face upgrade doll option, marks the debut of the new 2018 collection, as designed by the talented Jessy Ayala of Integrity Toys. Rayna Ahmadi is a 12.5-inch articulated vinyl doll featuring fully rooted hair and handapplied eyelashes. Rayna wears a one-piece denim overall jumpsuit and completes her look with an oversized jewellery set, a colourful bandana, matching denim open-toed high-heels and a unique ice-cream cone shaped purse. Doll stand and certificate of authenticity included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up.

This is an amazing Rayna, one of the best ever released. Her face and make up look great, using pink in the right way. She reminds me of the IFDC Rock Me Baby Rayna but enhanced with warm vibrant pink. Her outfit looks amazing - I’m a sucker for late 70s styled jeans. It would have looked even better in a dark blue denim though. Her shoes are awesome, her bag weird and the jewellery good. She’s coming home too.

So, are you joining the W Club this year? If so, which upgrade dolls are you getting, if any? 

  • So, how do you become part of the W Club?

From now until February 27th, 2018, you can qualify for the 2018 W Club by submitting a
registration form and completing your payment. You can start your registration here:

https://www.integritytoys.com/wclubforum/2018clubregstart.html

No registrations will be accepted after February 27th, 2018 at 9:00 PM Eastern Time (New
York time). No exceptions.

  • For how long is your 2018 Club membership valid?

Memberships are valid until the latter of January 1, 2019 or when the 2019 Club membership
registration period begins.

  • As a member, will you be guaranteed every exclusive item from the Club?

Every member in good standing will be guaranteed the right to purchase at least 5 exclusive dolls, which will be offered at various times throughout the Club year, including the 2 Fashion Royalty exclusive dolls (which may include NU. Face), 2 exclusive Poppy Parker dolls, and 1 additional exclusive doll during 2018. Members that added upgrade dolls during registration are guaranteed those upgrade doll(s), as well. There will be other limited items which will be available by lottery or first-come, first-served opportunities. Please note that membership in the W Club does not guarantee access to Integrity Toys’ non-Club exclusive dolls and accessories. None of the dolls available through the Integrity Toys’ authorised dealers can be purchased through the W Club and are not W Club exclusive items.

  • How many 2018 Club memberships can you purchase?

The number of memberships by collector or household is not restricted. However, memberships are non-transferable and cannot be shared.

  • You live outside of the US. May you still become a member?

Yes. Membership is available to residents of all countries worldwide. Please note that all
news releases and information will be released in English only.

  • You would like the Club information sent to you via regular mail; can it be done?

This is an online only Club and all members must have access to a valid email address.

  • What forms of payment are accepted?

All payments are processed through Integrity Toys’ online shopping cart system. They accept
Credit Cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) and PayPal. If you
don’t have a PayPal account or a credit card, you could get a prepaid credit card, as it
makes it easier for you to take advantage of the many offers.

  • How about more information about the purchasing of exclusive W Club dolls?

2018 W Club members are guaranteed the right to purchase the exclusive W Club doll(s) from 2018 only (these dolls are separate from and in addition to the upgrade dolls that you can purchase at registration). The number of W Club exclusive doll(s) produced is based on the number of pre-orders paid. If you do not pre-order the Club doll(s) by the designated cut-off date (there is usually about a week-long ordering window), you forfeit your right to purchase that Club doll through the W Club. Also, Club doll(s) from previous years are NOT available to 2018 members- Club dolls are only available during that specific membership year.

  • How about more information about the Club coupon?

Each W Club membership that you purchase will automatically add a special $25 coupon to your IT Direct Coupon Wallet that can be used towards ANY IT Direct shopping cart purchase of $99 or more online only during the 2018 W Club year. As long as your order is above $99 before shipping and tax, you can apply your coupon towards any order of your choice. Full details and instructions for the $25 coupon will be sent to 2018 W Club Members at a later date, including that a one coupon limit will be allowed per order.
Important exclusion: Coupons cannot be used to purchase additional memberships.
Any memberships bought with coupons will be voided, as the 2018 Club year does not
officially begin until after registration ends.

  • When will you be able to log into the W Club forum?

Once your membership has been processed, you will be emailed the “Welcome to the 2018
W Club” notice. This notice includes information on how to register and be approved for the
members-only forum, contact emails, email information and more. Due to the number of
registrations that are expected to be received at this time, it can take up to a week or more for the welcome notice to be sent out and you should be patient until you are sent the notice.

The only big gown of the line up, it looks majestic, like something the Queen Of The Night would wear in the Mozart opera The Magic Flute. The turban gives me a New Orleans vibe. I wonder what the shoes look like.

 

CRYSTAL CRUNCH

 OUT OF STOCK

Price: £300.00 (Excluding VAT at 20%)

Beautiful shorter two-layer dress with 50s vibes. Lots of embroidery on top of the flower pattern. The absence of colour helps in keeping it from going into kitcsh overdrive.

What a Couture day outfit looks like, this is my favourite from the collection. Gorgeous suit, great accessories and perfect styling.

Metallic trench coats appear regularly in most fashion doll collections, regardless of era or size. This one comes over a sheer embroidered form fitting dress that makes it really stand out.

Another sheer embroidered dress, this time in mermaid shape and fiery red colour. The capelet looks a bit odd combined with it, like it was an afterthought.
