My 143 got home a few days ago, although there were some hiccups, I feel that it worked out just fine.
Her name is Roxanne!
Ok, now I did end up having a moderate problem with the right shoulder.
After positioning the arm the two times necessary for these pictures, it went completely limp.
Kind of a shame because all the other joints are perfectly functional and properly tensioned.
With this problem aside, this doll is a reasonably decent quality doll, very soft TPE to effect that the A cups actually still jiggle to a degree, hinged wrists, beautiful face, and all the nice goodies that come with these dolls.
There are some compression marks on the backside from storage but im starting to get picky.
So bottom line?
I give this one four stars.
Some may give a lower rating for this sort of thing.
But I didn’t for two reasons;
1: I can’t ignore the possibility of the shoulder failure is a result of the possible rough handling by the shipping carrier.
2: MLD does have a Customer service team, and they do their job.
I was given a partial refund for this issue and with the cost of shipping, production and even the service I received after the sale, I feel it was more than fair.
Plus I’m confident I will be able to repair this, I’ve done it before, trust me.
(I’ll make a post of it if there is interest)
