I wanted to make this post to let some first time owners in on a few things they may not realize without anything to compare these dolls with, as well as to give a general overall review of them.
I have a collection of all sorts of makes of dolls both name brand and budget models.
I ended up getting one of these dolls (a 168 medium breast with an A2 head) out of shear curiosity.
So I threw down my money to just see for myself.
On another popular forum there was already a debate on whether these dolls were a scam or not.
So down the rabbit hole I went...
It was incredible to buy a new doll and only have to wait for roughly a week for delivery! (I’m on the extreme west coast)
What blew me away was that these dolls have HINGED WRISTS!
Now you might say “big deal” but if you have ever owned a doll that had nothing but the flex wire for wrists (practically all cheaper brands) you wont know the difference. Hinged wrists really allow you to position the hands repeatedly without them breaking.
I still avoid bending the fingers though. (the weakest part of ALL doll brands)
Also, the feet have very well designed hinged ankles that have a very solid stop at the standing position, and also have a nice footplate that the nuts are welded to for the oversized Phillips head screws.
On most other dolls you will get much smaller button head hex screws, and you may get feet that don’t stop at the standing position, they will move farther up in a very unnatural way.
Yeah it’s the normal floppy gooseneck tube with that creaky noise.
so really nothing to note here.
There has been some complaints in this area.
I‘ve personally only had one issue on a joint coming loose on delivery, but other than that, my only complaint would be that I would like more cloth tape wrapping on some of the skeleton to help the TPE to stay attached, as well as guarding against the skeleton from protruding from the inside.
What I did find interesting is that there seems to be a deliberate attempt to keep the lower joints stiff and the upper joints a little looser. with a standing doll, this is important.
The doll’s TPE was another surprise. I immediately noticed on how soft the doll‘s skin was, this is somewhat of a dilemma actually though in that it will usually reduce its durability. which isn’t that bad, but it can suffer from tearing at the “use” areas.
(a common complaint on any of the name brand dolls regarding the soft compound)
But believe me, if you ever had a doll with super hard TPE, and it’s got an opening that is even slightly on the tight side, you better be able to maintain a steel hard erection, otherwise it ain’t gonna work out very well.
In fact, you might end up injuring yourself.
Another underrated property of this TPE is; IT DOESN'T STINK!
Absolutely nothing is worse than unboxing a brand new beautiful doll only to realize she smells like a diesel mechanic!
This material only has a mild “new doll“
smell upon unboxing and after about a month and/or after the first mineral oil cleaning (the way I clean), the doll has absolutely zero smell!
The details that exist on these dolls, like the hinged wrists, are never found on a cheap doll. I’m talking wrinkles on the knuckles, hands, feet, heels etc. as well as extremely accurate positioning of tendons, veins, muscle.
They look like they have been molded directly from an actual female body!
If they didn't, the sculptor has an incredible knowledge of human anatomy!
The internal details of the dolls definitely has had some thought and design in them as well, they didn’t just make some bumps and grooves, there is evidence of some actual thought that has gone into this.
As well as a very noticeable difference between the two “playgrounds”!
They did however, unfortunately drop the ball when it comes to a proper sealing of the main cavity.
Not a huge problem for my skills, But for a first time user, I rate this as the most serious oversight / problem with these dolls. (sorry guys)
Overall, the dolls all exhibit a very beautiful appearance, very nice sculpted bodies that have different styles and details between different models.
Also the faces (especially the asian), are not only their own, and not knockoffs of other manufacturers as far as I can tell, they are also very beautiful right out of the box with very well and accurately applied makeup and eyelashes.
The eyes I also find of very nice quality.
Another nice touch is the very neatly packed bag of items that are included with the doll!
Heater Rod (Be careful with this one)
Budget brands, you get a Douche, heater rod and maybe a comb.
The one thing I would like to see is the inclusion of some extra TPE material.
You may find some undesirable attributes or inconsistencies with these dolls from time to time, doll to doll, but overall your not far from a high end priced TPE doll. (If at all)
Just keep in mind if something does go wrong, you may not get a brand new one sent to you, because these dolls aren’t being sold at a profit margin approaching 200%.
In fact, I cannot figure out how they do it.
I give the company and dolls 5 stars. shipping was mind-blowingly fast. The wife bought me 3dolls. two are very small but cool to hang out while I am working on paperwork. She just got me a larger one that you could probably have sex with but I don't know. Its really cool though sitting on the couch watching me work. She even got something. Very cool. Thanks David.
I would like some more information about the hole at the end of the main cavity. Does it go straight into the body somewhere or connect to the rectal cavity?
No glue needed? Thanks for the response!
Awesome review, I would like to know how you sealed the canal, the thought of using a soldering iron scares me. lol
i was looking at Kiara and wanted to how her vagina was inside. is straight or does it have some curvature ? some doll have great passages and some are just plain. you seam to be the best at answer questions . thank you john
It’s a crotchless body stocking actually.
I use Makeup Forever brand eyeshadow powder makeup. It stays in place pretty good.
@Fantastic Plastic Thank you, Sir, for the concise overview for us neophytes! I've been going back and forth on whether to buy an MLD or another vendor due to FOMO on something of which I don't even know! Lol!
As I am also a member of that other Forum that you are also on, I respect your expertise and experience and I am more apt to trust that instead of this ill-founded belief that I need to spend more money to gain a greater quality doll and/or experience.
Recently I asked about Doll heads interchangeability because I wanted a more "realistic head" and considered buying another one until you enlightened me to the issue of color matching! Lol.
If I could trouble you, could you offer your observations on MLD doll heads as opposed to those of other brands based on your experience?
Thanks in advance
One day I may be a brave souls and do some surgery on her, may practice on my 168 as she is getting a loose arm, side to side swing, and a kinda loose knee, but she still holds herself up.
I agree to this totally, I see these complaints about MLD being cheap dolls because of finger wires poking or breaking, but that's every doll. And on the topics of joints, I recently purchased a "higher end" doll with an evo skeleton, and brand new out of the box has a floppy loose shoulder, I coulda purchased 3-4 MLD dolls for the price of her, it's just the nature of the beast.
Thanks for the great information and review.
The biggest issue I am dealing with is getting the doll to stand without falling over. Because I am a new first time owner of a doll I am not sure if the problem is with construction or if I am doing something wrong.
