|Star Darlings Scarlet and Sage.|
|From left: Piper, Scarlet, Vega and Sage.|
They're based on characters from the Star Darlings series of books, and the 12 characters are based on the 12 zodiac signs. The dolls all have the last name Starling (although there is no Clarice). Disney is currently promoting them not only with the book series, but also an Internet-only cartoon on Youtube that's pretty stinking charming.
If you get these, I recommend buying them in person, not over the Internet. I've noticed some derp eye and/or paint flaws in a few, which tells me there needs to be better quality control at the factory. Still, they're super cute, I think.

The cheaper "basic" line for $14.99 is supposed to be the girls disguised as humans for their visit to Earth ("Wishworld"), so they're dressed more human-like and have more human hair colors. The basic dolls have the same arm and leg articulation as the $19.99 dolls, but slightly simpler outfits. The dolls you see in Toys R Us and Target are exactly the same as the original Disney Store versions, except without the charm necklaces and stands the Disney Store versions came with.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy having a look at my pictures.
|The more expensive dolls also come with plastic rings and school I.D. cards.|
|Wishworld Scarlet's boots. Awesome! They make me want to get silver paint so I can paint in the details.|
|Poor Vega's a bit cross-eyed.|
