Yup ...

Well, I went and did it.  I bought two more FR:16s.  "Main Feature" Elsa Lin and  "Fit to Print" Anais are now on their way to me.  You know I'll spam you with pics when they arrive.  :)  The only one I won't be getting is Saskia.  I usually like open-mouthed sculpts, but I never warmed to this one.  It's the same sculpt that was used in the AvantGuard series for "Aphrodisiac," "Goldmine," "Attention," "On Edge" and "Bijoux."  Out of all of those, "Goldmine" is the only one I really liked.  Never say never, though.  I'm not going to get THIS Saskia, but maybe I'll like some future incarnation of her. 

I am SO GLAD the FR:16s aren't terribly popular yet.  It means I've gotten excellent prices on each one I got.  Well, one of them I got in a trade (Freja), but the other two I got for obscenely low prices by stalking eBay auctions ... I got them WAY below retail.  I think this year is a great time to get them, because I suspect the line will be more popular next year after we see the upcoming W Club exclusive FR:16, and whatever FR:16s they want to grace us with at the Integrity Toys convention.  I think next year they'll be harder to find for discounted prices.  It will be interesting to see if my prediction holds true.

  1. Congratulations on your acquisitions!

    I'm also happy that they aren't popular yet. I was surprised that they weren't harder to find and got myself a nude Saskia.
