What's In The Box?

I have some recent arrivals, still boxed. Some will come out eventually, though it may be a while. Let's have a look, shall we?

Uhura



Claudette Gordon


Misty Copeland


Made to Move Barbie


Star Wars Finn

  1. Impressive! Claudette Gordon looks like the best of all possible fashion-doll qualities: face that looks like a portrait without having that uncanny-valley quality that some real-people faces have, articulation, and amazing style.

    1. Hi Smaller Places! I thought that I had missed out on getting Claudette Gordon after waiting so long, but I was able to get her for less than her original retail price. I really like her.

  2. I have been torn about Claudette Gordon. I love her outfit, but not sure about her face. I definitely need Uhura. I think Mattel did a good job with the likeness.

    1. Hi Janainah Frye! I passed on Claudette Gordon for a while, then decided that I wanted her, then found her for a good price! As for Uhura, the minute I saw her, I knew that I must have her. Mattel did do a very good job with her likeness.

  3. Those are some great dolls! I've been eyeing that Claudette Gordon one myself - she has such a great dress and face!

    Which ones are you going to be leaving in their boxes?

    1. Thank you, jSarie! I plan on leaving Misty Copeland in the box. Uhura and Made to Move Barbie will be deboxed soon. Claudette Gordon and Finn will likely stay in their boxes for a while, but eventually I do have plans for them.

    1. Thanks Debbie! Just when I thought I didn't need any more Barbies, Mattel found ways of drawing me back in! How could I resist the curvy bodies or the made to move bodies or Uhura or the others?! I could not. :)

  5. Ooh, I really want that Uhura now that I've seen the side panels. I want her and Spock.

    1. Hi Muff! Yep, she's a gem. I doubt that I'll be getting any of the other Star Trek characters.

  7. I love the new Uhura doll. I won't be adding her to the collection, but they did a wonderful job on her. Congrats on getting all your dolls. Nice to see you got your Misty.

    1. Thank you, Vanessa! I tried to pass on most of these, but Lt. Uhura and MTM Barbie were must haves.

    1. Thanks D7ana! The only one that I've opened so far is the Star Wars Finn figure. I guess I'm really taking my time with these. :)
