I received my first ever doll today (145cm SDH-100), and thought I would share a bit of info to hopefully help out any other prospective new owners.
I'll start by saying the order and shipment process with MLD was great. I (quickly) received exactly what I ordered, including the requested wig and eye color, at a great price compared to any other vendor I could find.
The doll was well packed, and arrived undamaged. I did mess up one of her fingers pulling the padding off, so be sure to carefully cut the tape and unwrap the hands and feet, instead of just yanking on it like a caveman as I did. A little careful fiddling and I got her finger (mostly) back in place on the wire.
The SDH-100 head is flat out beautiful! I'll eventually add some pics, but for now, look at the face in the "Doll Eyes"shop listing, and that's her.
The 145cm, large breast body is thin, but well proportioned. Breasts are for sure more firm than the real thing, but nice nonetheless. If you're taller than about 5'8", you won't be face-to-face with the doll in missionary. I'm 6'1", and my chin is beyond the top of her head. So if that's important to you, I'd suggest a taller doll.
The bright side of the thin build and lower height is of course the weight. She's not light by any means (around 60 lbs), but most healthy, adult males shouldn't have much of an issue carrying her from place to place. Now repositioning her "locally"? That's a different story, and I'm sure the same story for most dolls.
The major joints are all quite stiff, and challenging to position, especially while trying to not put too much pressure in any wrong direction. Rolling her, shifting her position, adjusting body parts... all rather challenging, especially with no prior experience. Hopefully it will get easier over time.
Overall though, I'm very pleased with both the doll and MLD, so far at least!
