Yes, those are two of the actual phrases it says. I've never seen a toy that actually made veiled... or not so veiled... death threats before.

It's pretty funny, really. The first part of the phrase is in a cute "teddy bear" type voice. Then it changes to a deep, demonic voice for the punch line.

The eyebrows move, too, so at first it looks like a cute li'l white bear. Then the eyebrows move and the eyes light up red as the "cute voice" changes to "demon voice."

They're not dolls, they're action figures!

I like the idea of evil halloween-themed toy, but he's still too cute... Maybe that's because he actually is cute cuddly bear, only now he is possesed by something ominous...

23 September – Pullip Laura – "Seems like very mysterious Circus style girl"

"Roll up, Roll up!! Step into my dark world
And prepare to be amazed by my Gothic Circus.
Come with me... but be warned, you may never want to leave....
Feel Like So."


Laura is challenging to photograph well. "We, GROOVE, made new mold for eye chips which can more cross Glass Eyes look like." The advertising is accurate: her eyes tend to look both crossed and glassy! LOL LOL LOL

But if you can work past the eye wonk, she effectively conveys a mysterious Something Wicked This Way Comes aura.

They're not dolls, they're action figures!

She fits beautifully in to that set, and looks just stunning.

(I must be seriously face-blind with dolls - I'm not with humans at all - as I can never see what others can with wonkiness. I haven't had any problem with photographing Laura, but in certain outfits / colours Aquel looks like she's got a thousand-yard stare)

That is a seriously strange bear Rb_bigO
Cool setting with Laura. Your Groove "advertising" line made me LOL.

In most of my photo attempts with Laura so far, the eyes, or usually one eye, have looked so vacant and creepy that they remind me of Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart": "He had the eye of a vulture --a pale blue eye, with a film over it. Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold." I have this same problem with Pullip Lala.

With most painted-eye "playline" dolls, I usually can't see the "eye wonk" that is of such concern to some collectors.

The quote is straight from the PullipStyle web site, which I presume is the official Groove sales pitch.
yay
