Pidgin Doll Spring 2019 collection is unveiled!

He just released the Spring 2019 collection of Pidgin Doll and here they are in all their glory. (Availability according to the Pidgin website at time of posting). The dolls are 16, all one of a kind and are ball-jointed 1:4 scale, made in resin. You can find their exact measurements in their website. That’s where you can buy them as well.

Phyn And Aero shutting down at the end of March 2019

Robert Tonner communicated a letter that describes his decision to shut down his latest company, Phyn And Aero at the end of this month, citing production problems like rising costs and increasingly long lead times. Here it is in its entirety.

My Dear Friends,

As I stated back in January, the only thing you can count on is change, and I'm afraid I must change course yet again. As much as I've always loved manufacturing, on-going production issues have continued to wear me down, and as a result, Phyn & Aero will cease operating as of March 31st. Please know, when I refer to production issues, I'm referring to continuing rising costs and ever-growing lead times. I've always been proud of the fine work done by the factories—they care about the product every bit as much as I have—and the wonderful people we work with are as disappointed as I. Please know that this was not an easy decision for me or for us, nor a decision made lightly.

This decision, however, does create an opportunity for you to secure the last of any Phyn & Aero product. This includes Lila, Annora, Kadira and Nancy Ann—some of which have just arrived. Look for discounts on the product, but please note there will be no returns nor refunds. Also, should you order a Kadira item look for a little "freebee" in your box!

Please note, the Phyn & Aero website will be accessible through April but mainly to print off any images or descriptions you may want to retain.

As strange as this may seem under the circumstances, I am introducing a new doll—Rayne. I've attached our sell sheet from Toy Fair to explain what she is all about. The Shapeways store will be open, with at least a couple of pieces to order, by the end of the month (please refer to the sell sheet—this will make more sense). The dolls will be available thru a select group of retailers that are listed on our website, (be sure and click the link at the bottom of our site).

My new portfolio web-site, showcasing my current and past doll/figure designs and sculpting, will be up in a few days. Please check it out. (www.roberttonnerdesign.com).

Some great news—just because I'm closing P&A that doesn't mean that Kadira will be going away. Andrew Yang will be continuing to promote and develop Kadira and would be thrilled to hear from you. He can be reached at aycollective@gmail.com.

So, you may ask, what the heck am I going to do now that I'll be out of the doll business? Well, I may be out of manufacturing, but I'm certainly not leaving the doll world. I'm working with various companies on freelance projects—and I've even signed a deal to do human (not doll) handbags and jewelry. So, I'll be around. Be sure to check out my new web-site and friend me on Instagram.

I can't tell you all what a wonderful ride this has been. The events, the parties, Toy Fair, the Magazines, and mostly you—the collectors—have made this entire doll world experience more than I could have imagined it to be. I sincerely thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the fun, friendship and the mutual love of this hobby—doll collecting.

Love,

Robert

The doll he mentions in the letter, Rayne, is not available anywhere for the moment, as his new website is not yet up and running. Nor is any photograph of her included in the document linked in the email, just her description and possibilities. Here is that document complete:

Just who is Rayne?

Rayne is your creative muse, your personal fashion model, your fashion canvas. She’s the realistic 16” fashion figure of your dreams.

She’s a beautiful doll but what makes her so special?

Sculpted by renowned and award-winning doll designer Robert Tonner, Rayne is a 16” realistic fashion figure with 15 points of articulation. She’s made of the finest hard plastic and vinyl with rooted saran hair (or unrooted for wigs).

So, she’s a normal fashion doll.

Not so fast. It’s not what we, the manufacturers have created but what you will do with Rayne that will really set her apart.

I’ll explain: Rayne arrives in a basic set of sport underwear and shoes just like a normal basic doll. However, that’s where the similarities with other commercial fashion dolls ends. How you dress and style her is up to you.

Again, like any other fashion doll so what makes her so different?

Simply, 3D printing technology.

You’ll be able to go to the Shapeways website at www.shapeways.com and shop in the R. Tonner Design store where you’ll find many accessories such as shoes, breastplates, cuffs, hats, sculpted wigs, jewelry, historical foundations and much more—all designed and sculpted just for Rayne. New styles will be added all the time. Pick the accessory you’d like for Rayne and order it in the material that suits Rayne’s style. How about a pair of purple pumps? Or a transparent, form fitting breastplate? Jewelry in real gold? Sure, why not? You can even order a plastic accessory that you can paint, decorate or even bedazzle! It’s easy and fun to do. You just go on the Shapeways site, pick the style you like, pick a material and color and order. It’s just that easy and your accessory is made exclusively for you and shipped directly to your home.

How about clothing?

I’m glad you asked! Patterns for easy to make outfits for Rayne will be available in March/April on the R. Tonner Design (RobertTonnerdesign.com) site to download.

Become a part of 3D printing technology revolution and enjoy an enhanced doll collecting experience--welcome to the creative world of Rayne!

Rayne™

I had no interest in any of the Phyn And Aero products, but the Tonner Outlander and Wonder Woman dolls are some of the best he released and would have loved to see more of them. Unfortunately it does not seem to be possible anymore.

Hand me the Envelope please - the latest Sybarite is sold out!

This Valentine’s Superdoll London doll is the beautiful Envelope, a brilliant take on a geisha, in her white kimono, towering hair and intricate details. She’s already sold out I’m afraid, but you can enjoy her in the photos from Superdoll below, as well as the site description.

ENVELOPE DD-0156

Anyone here for the opening of Envelope?

VENUS strolled through a sea of paper cranes singing to herself: "its a nice day for a white wedding....".
Her gorgeous oriental styled hair is just a hairs breadth short of a statuesque ikebana. Platinum, but in hair terms its almost white, white. Above the shoulders blunt bob, pulled up into a top bun and side bunches; with long paper like sideburns and a blunt slightly curved fringe..
Her gold and teal eyes are rimmed in salmon, rose and soot and her lips of pomelo glossed and glossed again.
Other than her utter delight at the origami cranes, she is delighted by her dragon and peonies brocade 2 part kimono. A whole lot contemporary and a whole lot traditional... just a vision of genius from her favourite designers.
Tucked into her obi, are velvelette laser cut starfish held in place by her gold and purple obi. Her choice of jewellery is a 'silver' bug adorning her obi and finished with a white corded obijime. Ceremoniously she wears a red silk tasselled waist sash.
upon her feet she wears Sock style 2 tooth Geta.
She looked up and smiled at the jucstaposing cranes which reminded her or her organza backpack which indeed is her kimono overcoat.
Venus smiled over her Japanese paper umbrella as the world went by and though....
Happy Birthday to ME!

Quite a surprise there, unveiling the second new RuPaul doll just a day after the start of the 2019 registration period. Judging from the reduced edition size (750 instead of the previous doll’s 1000), they were probably not happy with the time it took to sell out the first doll. The new one is a golden rehash of the first, with make up accessories we have seen in Industry dolls, the bouffant high hairstyle we expect to see from RuPaul. The extras are a bar of chocolate and a book, which would not make me buy a doll, since I own the previous one.

French_Kiss_Vanessa_Perrin_upgrade_2019_3.png

A 1.0 Vanessa doll is always good news - and in a tan skin-tone, now named “sun-kissed”, even better. Why do we get all that tan variables is beyond me - it definitely has to do with the haphazard way they make the skin tones in the Chinese doll factory IT uses, without a proper recipe with colour percentages, just mixing colours trying to match the shade. Not very good for replacement bodies in the future - just try to find a tan homme body and tell me about it. The screening screams Going Public Eugenia - in fact, when I first saw the first photo of the email, I thought she was Eugenia, not Vanessa. Beautiful accessories but I am not that crazy about the fashion. Jesse Ayala designed this one.

This doll will have a non-refundable deposit due immediately, with a balance due at shipping time, approximately in Summer 2019.

Lukas_Maverick_Level_of_Suspence_club_upgrade_2019_3png

First of all, dear Integrity Toys, please stop calling male dolls “figures”. They are DOLLS. Even the G.I. Joe figures are actual dolls that are named figures to placate parents buying them for their little boys. This is so backwards thinking, especially in this day and age. So please stop it. It does not fit with what Integrity Toys represents as a doll company.

Lukas is his usual gorgeous self but looks uncomfortably a lot like his first apperance, Raw Appeal, from the 2009 convention, minus the eyeliner. The outfit is not that impressive either. Compare it with Bellamy Blue from last year’s Industry collection and you can see why. Those convertible pants have got to stop - the Violaine ones were more than enough. So last year. Jesse, I was expecting so much more from this one.

Bossa Nova Poppy Parker 2019 club upgrade 3.png

David Buttry designed this one within the concept of this year’s Poppy spy theme, which story is taking place in Brazil. I love the print but not much more from this one. If you described her to me without any photos, I would have said “what a lovely doll”, but the execution seems slightly off to me.

Remember that all dolls shown are prototypes only, the final production may vary slightly.

  • Can you tell me more about the purchasing of exclusive W Club dolls?

2019 W Club members are guaranteed the right to purchase the exclusive W Club doll(s) from 2019 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 2019 members- Club dolls are only available during that specific membership year.

  • Can you explain more 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 2019 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 2019 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 2019 Club year does not officially begin until after registration ends.

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

Once your membership has been processed, you will be emailed the “Welcome to the 2019 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 we expect to be receiving at this time, it can take up to a week or more for the welcome notice to be sent out and we appreciate your patience until you are sent the notice.
