The opening bid was set at $0.99, and it’s now up to $170. Since I’m queue-ing this post, it could be higher.

(You may need to be a backer and logged into Kickstarter to read this post.)

TL;DR:
1) Jill’s been on “radio silence”, because she wanted to give us concrete info instead of “we’re still looking”.

2) Between tooling, sample approval, etc, it could be about 4 months. Better to say 5-6 months, to help account for potential delays. I think that time-frame regards production - not including shipping stuff out to us.

Looks like this time frame means we could have the Scary Godmother dolls in hand a year after the projected date. April 2015 instead of 2014? I can’t complain too much, as long as we can still get the doll eventually.

The purse is clever, but that face paint makes her look spacey. It’s a challenge to find the right face design for a Superstar sculpt with modern dolls. To me, the sculpt got associated with the “vapid blond” stereotype. If the eyes are done right, large and dreamy like the 80s and 90s designs, it can be fine. But the designs used on Generation Girl sculpts and other modern Barbies doesn’t translate well to the Superstar sculpt.

I swear Barbie’s not supposed to say that! Mother returns seven-year-old daughter’s talking doll after she hears it cry out ‘what the f***?’ | Daily Mail Online

I listened to the clip, and the phrase “off the hook” is said in a tone where it’s harder to understand the words than in some of the other clips. It’s an excited tone, though, rather than one of disgust, which I often accompanies the phrase “wtf”. 

Do people still commonly say “off the hook”? I remember not enjoying the phrase when I first heard it 10+ years ago.

Princess Lamia and her bodyguard Kirara

from X-Bomber, also known as Star Fleet, that used puppeteering process similar to Supermarionation

Kirara kinda looks like a wingless moth-yeti. In this clip, the  puppets’ faces remind me of the old Volks bjd sculpts, particularly the eyes.
