Integrity Toys Summer 2019 reveal: new Tulabelle for The Industry

The surprise from the Poppy reveal was nothing compared to the Industry one. Not even a capsule collection was dedicated to The Industry: only one single doll was unveiled, the new refreshed and revamped Tulabelle. The doll pays homage to her first 16” namesake, wearing the same outfit, with an added look as a bonus. The new sculpt looks nothing like the previous one, not even like the original 16” doll. She looks like she has a wide face, a worrying trend for new Integrity sculpts. The outfit is nice, channelling Anna Sui boho chic, with great accessories, but I don’t like the doll. She has hints of a young Marie Osmond. Not a good thing in my book. And she is $155.00. Ouch.

A real life image of the doll, from the designer himself, David Buttry.

She does look better in the real life photo by David Buttry, which is encouraging. Will see how she transforms in future incarnations. The China factory problems are the reason again for not having a proper Industry collection. Looks like this is going to be a dry doll year. Only W Club members are allowed to enter a lottery for a chance to purchase this doll, so if you want one, you’ll have to wait for a chance to pick her up on the secondary market.

Integrity Toys Summer 2019 reveal: Poppy Parker Mission Brazil Capsule Collection

One of the most anticipated Integrity Toys collections each year is of course the Poppy Parker one. This year is no exception, even more so as it is the 10th anniversary since her debut. IT had announced early in the year, when the upgrade W Club membership dolls were unveiled, that the theme would be a continuation of the spy one, originally done back in 2014, The Girl From I.N.T.E.G.R.I.T.Y.. Now the action has moved to South America and the collection is called Mission Brazil, designed by none other than the incredible David Buttry.

public.jpeg

Imagine the surprise of the W Club members when they received the first email revealing the collection, to find out that it would not only be a capsule one, composed of only five dolls, three Poppies and a Tina Tanaka, plus Bellamy renamed Sergio, but that this was it for Poppy in 2019, the convention collection and the W Club exclusive doll notwithstanding. There was an exclusive video presentation of the collection and in it, Carol Roth and David mentioned that all this is due to production issues with their China factory that have turned their planning on its head. Roth mentioned that the problems will be eventually sorted out. But unless you’re going to the convention, this is it for this year regarding Poppy. Quite a disappointment for a ten year anniversary. Last year was again a capsule collection for Poppy (unveiled in late June), but it had slightly more dolls, all Poppies. And the price has gone up by $10.00 since last year. Ouch.

Another thing I wanted to mention here that is very particular to this collection, is the presence of guns. I was not comfortable with them even back in 2014, but now they are even more disturbing. With all that is going on in the US and gun violence in general, it looks very out of place to be putting guns in the hands of lovely made dolls, even if you colour them in candy colours and justify their presence with the theme. Now that I got this out of my chest, let’s check out the dolls.

  • Poppy Parker wears a period-accurate, custom-printed dress under a bright orange knee length flight jacket;

  • Tina Tanaka wears her own version of a 60's inspired, custom-printed mini-dress;

  • Two colorful, oversized handbags;

  • Bright yellow revolver (designed to match their outfits perfectly!);

  • Two complete jewelry sets, composed of bangle bracelets, earrings and rings;

  • Bright orange go-go boots with transparent vinyl panels;

  • MOD inspired white and blue kitten heels;

  • Alternate pair of painted on "gloved" hands;

  • Alternate pair of "holding" hands;

  • Two doll stands (each doll has her own);

  • Certificate of authenticity.

public.jpeg
public.jpeg

These two-doll gift-sets are becoming the norm for Poppy lately and it is good, since you get two dolls for a much lower price than an individual doll. I think Integrity should have us pick the dolls we want from each collection and have them packaged in giftsets of two so that we get them cheaper. I love everything about this and will definitely join the lottery in the end of October.

public.jpeg
public.jpeg

Ayumi 1.0 is a favourite of mine and she looks gorgeous here, her hair, makeup and outfit. Poppy looks like To The Fair and Looks A Plenty blonde had a child. I’m probably going to exchange their bodies between them and let Tina have the high heeled body. I love the prints and the bags, David has done an incredible job with their design. One more thing: having dolls of colour sold in sets with Poppy to move merchandise is not a good image. They did it with Darla last year, now with Tina.

  • Sergio wears his signature white linen suit and pool blue short sleeve shirt;

Bellamy is a handsome sculpt and I say yes to every opportunity to use it. This is a great version, he almost looks like Tom Ellis, the actor playing Lucifer in the namesake series. I love his style, a Latino Bond ready for action on the Copacabana. The saxophone is a great touch. David said the print on his swimsuit is Brazilian. Some people had issues with the different shade of brown his hair and facial hair have, but hey, most people do have that difference, it’s natural. I am happy that I have him on preorder.

Her swimsuit is directly referencing the catsuit worn by Agent Lotta Danger Poppy. She’s a beautiful Poppy, with a dreamy face and a lovely, colourful outfit. If I had the budget, I’d probably order this one too. Her hat is a bit weirdly shaped but it’s probably to accommodate her hair bump.

public.jpeg

She’s probably the best doll of this collection and a gorgeous Poppy to boot. I love the Afro and her style is just like she popped out of a 1960s Vogue. I can just imagine her in one of the modernist Oscar Niemeyer Brazilian residences, attending a reception during filming. Preordered faster than the speed of light. It’s a good thing her edition is high.

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.

East 59th capsule collection unveiled!

Two new capsule collections were revealed this week from Integrity Toys. The first one is East 59th Street by Chris Stoeckel, who continues with his foray in the world of 1950's fashion. There are two dressed dolls and a gift set inspired by retro paper doll designs available through regular IT dealers and also an IT Direct exclusive two-doll "Pink Champagne" gift set, featuring Victoire Roux modelling her friend Aurelia's latest creation on her wedding day.

IMG_9170.JPG

Beautiful doll but not enough to tempt me into buying her, although I want a dark haired Victoire for my collection (the ones I have have all variations of red hair). Elegant and bright ensemble with nice details and accessories. It has a whiff of the Busy Gal Barbie. This hat has been done to death in Poppy Parker line and should be retired. There were so many different hat designs in the 1950s so it would be nice to see something else for a change. Love the colour combinations.

IMG_9177.JPG

A new Aurelia, not that different from the first one at first look. I don’t particularly like the dress with the weird draping. I wish we could see more Charles James style gowns instead of Bon Bon style dresses. Not a fan of the colour combination either. She has the more realistic gloves which is a very good thing.

  • Her maid of honor Lady Aurelia Grey wears a lovely long-sleeved, cream satin and gold micro-sequin cocktail dress, wrapped in a scrumptious matching shoulder length faux-fur stole tied with a gold-tone satin bow;
  • Each doll has her own "pearl" necklace and matching earrings;
  • Pink pumps;
  • "Golden" pumps;
  • A pink bouquet, opera length gloves and a matching veil for the bride;
  • Alternate pair of "painted on" short-gloved hands for Aurelia;
  • Miniature bottle of pink champagne;
  • Two "gold" rimmed champagne glasses;

IMG_9193.JPG

I really don’t like this one. The colours, shapes, textures, are all somewhat off. The Victoire gown in particular looks shapeless. The fabric and embroidery don’t particularly do the shape justice and keep it from looking good on the doll. It’s a great price for two dolls though. Oven mittens make an appearance on the bride.

Ru Paul dolls are back again! Shantey, you stay!

RuPaul announced on Instagram, just in time for Jason Wu's birthday, that the RuPaul doll’s are making a comeback! Then social media were buzzing with the news, and sure enough, the company email arrived. Integrity Toys, in collaboration with Jason Wu, is launching a new limited edition series of dolls based on the likeness of Ru Paul. The first series was released thirteen years ago, before RuPaul became a household name with Drag Race. It’s a bit surprising that the comeback took so long.

IMG_6772.JPG

You can already pre-order the very first doll in the new series, named "Kitty Gurl Pink". The new doll was designed by Jason Wu himself. It has a new articulated body sculpt, uses the same sculpt that the original doll’s used, has two new hand sculpts made for this and has feet that match Fashion Royalty feet, so they can share shoes. 

IMG_6773.JPG

So, who is RuPaul? For those of you living under a rock, RuPaul is an American drag queen, singer and actor known for such TV shows as 'RuPaul's Drag Race' and 'RuPaul's Drag U'. He was born RuPaul Andre Charles on November 17, 1960, in San Diego, California. RuPaul eventually took his crossdressing persona to stages in Atlanta and New York with bands and as a dancer. In the early 1990s, he landed a record contract and released his first album, Supermodel of the World, while also starting a career in acting. On the strength of his TV shows, including RuPaul's Drag Race, and his oversized personality, RuPaul has become a pop culture icon. (Reference from Biography.com).

IMG_6774.JPG

Click below to view the surprise video announcement featuring RuPaul himself announcing the return of everyone's favorite officially licensed collectible doll series made into his likeness.

Kitty Gurl Pink will retail at $145.00 + shipping for the general public (see link in a previous paragraph). A portion of the entire edition size (which is 1000 dol’s) has been reserved for W Club members and is being offered via a "right-to-buy" lottery at the special members-only price of $135.00 + shipping and handling (Lottery deadline is October 9th, noon ET). While the general public and W Club members alike may pre-order the doll starting immediately on a first-come, first-served basis (until that portion of the edition size sells out) using the link published on Integritytoys.com and social media, W Club members can enter and be randomly selected to win in the right-to-buy lottery in order to obtain the specially reduced, members-only pricing.

I preordered the doll the moment I got the email. I figured that, even though it is a large edition, the $10 difference is not that much to make me enter a lottery. I love both doll and outfit. The eyes look a bit different than the older release, but the doll still looks like RuPaul. And a Jason Wu dress! And opera glasses! Fabulous!
