NU.Face Essentials: capsule collection by Integrity Toys

The second capsule collection revealed this week consists of three NU. Face close up dolls designed by Jessy Ayala. The concept is the launch of Lukas Maverick's very own underwear brand, that looks suspiciously a lot like Calvin Klein (hence the black & white photos). Each doll comes with NF branded underwear, shoes, a stand and a certificate of authenticity, enclosed in an elegant package. This collection is brought to the W Club by IT Direct with 3 members-only lotteries and special Club pricing of only $99 per doll (plus S&H). The two ladies will be available now and ship soon after the lottery ends, while Lukas will be available later this summer. The price is not bad, but it is still a basic doll. Good to see edition sizes at 900 (Dominique is 800), gives more chances to win. I’d like to get all of these.

Finally a Dominique in a soft face palette! I’d love to add this sculpt to my collection and now is a good opportunity. Her photos are a bit blurry but they came like that in the email. I just hope the silvery eyeliner is less pronounced in the final doll.

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.

Faux-suede sneakers, eyeglasses, bag, double wallet chain with snake pendant detail, one earring, figure stand and certificate of authenticity are also included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up. 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.

And now the technical details of the membership:

  • How do I become part of the W Club?

From now until March 3rd, 2019, you can qualify for the 2019 W Club by submitting a registration form and completing your payment. You can start your registration here:

https://www.wclubforum.com/2019clubregstart.html

No registrations will be accepted after March 3rd, 2019 at Noon Eastern Time (New York time). No exceptions.

  • For how long is my 2019 Club membership valid?

Memberships are valid until the latter of January 1, 2020 or when the 2020 Club membership registration period begins.

  • As a member, will I 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 2019. 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 2019 Club memberships can I purchase?

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

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

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

  • I would like the Club information sent to me via regular mail; can IT do that?

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

  • What forms of payment does IT accept?

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

  • 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.

Integrity Toys 2018 reveal pt.2: Nu Face - The Counter - Culture Collection

Next up in the webinar was the eagerly anticipated Nu Face line. Jessy Ayala designed this again and was invited by Carol Roth to present the concept. It seems that the Nu Face agency ladies take part in an edgy video clip, designed to cause controversy. The appearance of Lukas Maverick, along with a line up of characters not used for quite a while, plus an old sculpt as a new character is one part of the equation. The other is edgy, outré fashions and styling, neon colour details and S&M details that made lots of collectors happy but also left many in the cold. Let’s check what all the fuss is about. Have in mind that the price of each doll in this line is now $150.00 and they are all available from Integrity Toys dealers except one, that you will see at the end of the post.

Lukas makes a surprise appearance here, as most people were expecting him to be included in the new Hommes line to be presented this fall in Convention. He still has the old Homme body, just like the Industry guys. His styling is quite daring for IT standards, reminding many a Tom Of Finland guy (Jessy admitted it was one of the influences). I wonder what exactly makes an otherwise very interesting doll cost $150.00 wearing a pretty basic outfit without any accessories to make it so expensive. Is it the tattoo? I seriously doubt it. Is it the painted hairstyle and facial hair? Is it the septum ring? IT knows Lukas will sell out no matter what (as he did, soon after the presentation). I did preorder him, he’s gorgeous, even though the outfit looks half done. And I mean the bottom half. Yes, those shorts are an eyesore (pun intended). Pet peeve: sandals with socks and garters. German tourists rejoice. A Perfecto style boot with metallic tip would have been so much better.

IMG_6432.JPG

Yes, Integrity Toys heard people calling for the Vanessa 2.0 sculpt comeback as a different character and here she is. Violaine is the younger Perrin sister and she rocks! Great styling and make up, with lots of piercings, even a nose ring that is removable. I love the stacked bangles, they remind me of someone completely different: Millicent Rogers, the early 20th century socialite, wore lots of stacked bangles, just as Loulou De La Falaise did much later. Violaine is a variant of Violette (remember that the Perrins are French and all daughters have names that begin with a V) and also a 1996 single by Cocteau Twins, whom I adore. Some people did not like the dark blue lipstick but I think it fits her perfectly. That and her eyeliner are reminiscent of Aerodynamic Vanessa Perrin from 2009. The jeans are definitely like the ones by Balenciaga in their Spring 2018 collection. They are convertible, meaning that each piece is detachable - they have hooks to attach to each other. I am thinking that maybe I can recreate the Versace denim JLo boots that looked like drooping pants. I love the asymmetrical top and the paillete parka. The bag is a miniature wonder and yellow, just perfect. So,is the chocker. And the peacock ring is amazing. Her boots look plain by comparison. Glad to say that she’s coming home.

IMG_6456.JPG
IMG_6458.JPG

After a prolonged absence, Annik returns again, with a last name (Vandale), wild styling and a prominent place in the Nu Face collection. She has the same police/bondage hat as Lukas, a beautiful small bag with lots of details, a face ring that cannot be removed (it will leave a dent and void the warranty) and a pair of semi transparent boots made of organza that, according to what Jessy said, has a holographic effect.

IMG_6477.JPG

Dominique is back but in Nu Face instead of her usual Fashion Royalty position. She gives off a JLo vibe and her multimix fashion is quite interesting. The violet lipstick looks quite good on her but could be problematic for redressing. Her eyeglasses look a bit weird on her. I think a pair styled like those worn by the band Devo would have looked much better.

This is the lottery doll, so do not ask dealers for this one. Colette 1.0 returns - last we saw her she was part of the W Club wedding trio. She’s dark again, which is cool, and her fashion is the most Indian inspired from the whole collection. Her fashion is Gucci styled again, with lots of colours and textures mixing, much in the style Alessandro Michele has being using in the Gucci collections these past few years. Her boots remind me of the ones worn by this year’s upgrade Eugenia. Love the bag.

Beauty and The Beast with a twist - as Nu Fantasy characters by Integrity Toys

Today a new pair of Nu Fantasy dolls are available at all Integrity Toys dealers. As before, with the Hansel & Gretel pair, the company releases a famous fairy-tale duo, re-done to match the modern fashion aesthetics of the Nu Face line. This amalgamation of characteristics is always the strong element of the Nu Fantasy line. This time around it is Beauty and The Beast that gets the treatment, but with a catch: Beauty is the male character here, with Beast being a sizzling-hot lady.

Beauty is male and who better to embody this than the ever popular Lukas Maverick sculpt. The doll wears a multi-layered look that consists of a tailored, long evening coat over a matching fashionable shirt and vest combination. His hair is coiffed in the latest hip style popular with fashionistas and his face reminds me a bit of Ringmaster Lukas - it must be the blue eyes. If you hurry, you might be able to pick the last one, he's THAT popular.


Item # 75010
Beast
The Nu.Fantasy™ Collection
Limited Edition of 800 Dolls

In a great twist, Beast is a woman! A fashion beast that roams the forest of haute couture, LOL. This doll features the sculpt of the Pizzazz character from the Jem & The Holograms line of dolls, making its début in the Nu.Fantasy collection. It was not mentioned officially in the Integrity W Club newsletter (probably for copyright issues) but was later confirmed. She is dressed in black "leather" pants, a red bustier with a long layered skirt and knee high boots.


The dolls are sold separately but many dealers chose to sell them as a pair, to avoid having left-over Beast dolls, as Lukas is the sure-fire hit of this lot. Beast looks great though and I suspect once she changes into a tailored suit, she will break many hearts. And she has the new FR2 body which will be the norm for the former FR and FR2 characters from now on. Is this the first time a Nu Fantasy doll does not have the Nu Face body?

Lukas is a doll I already have two of, not in this skin tone or with facial hair but I do not like his chin facial hair at all and his hairdo is a mess. He looks like the Greek or Latin lovers you try to avoid on the Mediterranean beaches. Victor is the Takeo sculpt in good use as an AA man, gorgeous outfit as well. Romain is the nerdy type, a first for FR, with the sculpt of Acheron from the Dark Hunter doll series. The outfits look great again and their man bags are to die for. Acheron's I would use in real life too!
