One and Only  
I only managed to get Rapunzel.  But, do you all think she looks a little squished in the face?  Or is she okay? I feel like her face is a wee bit lopsided.

Also, I really want to buy Ariel, Snow White, Aurora, and Pocahontas if anyone has them to sell.  I have nothing to trade as I want to keep Rapunzel. 

My biggest wish is for Aurora or Pocahontas.

I honestly think that's how they all look. The one I got for friend looks exactly like yours I personally don't like her I wanted Pocahontas. But they are all beautiful in some way :)

Maybe it is a half smile she is doing?

Actually I'm glad you posted these because up close she looks less like Paris Hilton and more like Punzie. -_-

Her freckles are cute, and she is lovely, and nothing is wrong with her face <3

Like I mentioned before, mine has the same thing. Not all of them do, since she's supposed to have the same head sculpt as the regular Rapunzel doll. But there are some others that are squished too. I don't think it detracts too much, you only really notice it if you're looking from under her chin or at a certain angle from the left side.

I think these kind of dolls have heads that can be reshaped, though. At least, I know that heating the neck holes with a hair dryer is supposed to make the head easier to take on and off of the neck. So I think if you carefully heated the head this way, it would get softer and that might allow you to un-squish it. I'm planning on trying this with mine, so if I get any results I'll post about it here.

How would you get her out without messing up the box? Or are you planning on taking her out and don't care about the box?

You can remove the clear top part of the box without damaging it. There are tabs under the base that you lift to loosen it and then you can just take it off and put it back on easily.

Are these dolls supposed to be the same sculpt as the regular doll? If it is maybe someday I'll be able to make a set with the same kind of retro makeup but prettier outfits.

Most of them are the same. The only ones with different sculpts are Tiana and Snow White. However, all of the dolls that use the old molds use the ones from last year - some of the regular dolls' molds have been updated since then. I know that Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, and Snow White all have different faces this year.

But long answer short, you could probably duplicate the hair and makeup easily using regular playline dolls.

i think its because all of the princesses heads are desired to only stay in the one position that it looks odd from other angles

The other dolls don't look strange to me. I think they gave her a half smile expression.

Goodness knows she has huge eyes. Her eyes look smaller because they are half-closed. Her head is tilted to the side in an elegant pose. Honestly, I don't see anything wrong with her. I think she is beautiful. :) Congratulations on getting her.

I like her bat wing eyes! The only thing that seems weird is her face shape. It's more obvious in person the it is irregular on each side. But I am starting to think it is a specific expression she has thus she is smiling more on one side.

It sure looks that way to me. ^.^ We all know how expressive Rapunzel can be. I also think the freckles are the perfect touch.

Congradulations!
I am very proud of you to have your very own rapunzel!...
I really am very glad for you T_T!!!

There is absolutely nothing wrong with her! I think she is simply adorable! <3

Here's to hoping i can get my hands on one soon! ^^
dark_rapunzeldark_rapunzel on October 19th, 2011 10:04 pm (UTC)
I really really hope you get one too! Here is hoping the eBay prices drop a lot soon! Or at least by after Christmas.

I keep thinking that if the family of five or six hadn't pushed to the front I would have had Aurora at least too and Jasmine for sure. I was that close!

I THINK i have one in the bag... ^_~

Aw, those kinds of people really break my heart. the worst part is is that you KNOW none of them really wanted the dolls :(

I would check back here on the newly posted trade/sell post.
We here seem to be pretty reasonable lol

I know what you mean! My Rapunzel doll's head definitely looks warped/mutated, like when they were packaging it they pulled her head back too tight to achieve the smug look or something. My friend's dolls looks pretty much the same though so oh well :/
