Iplehouse Rex = Perfection!

Iplehouse Special Forces IP Rex
I know I twitted something about this the other day, but I just *have to* rant about this. Well, the other day I was watching Rex's sales page when my hubby came and watched it over my shoulder. Then something really funny happened. He told me -exact words- "See? That is an action figure, not a doll" and I could not stop laughing.

Well, anyways, on to the topic. This <- is a male doll. A handsome, manly western-like man. Why companies can not do more mans like this? I respect the look of asian-like guys -smooth features, androgynous figures, and so on- but I'm pretty sure there is a market for guys like this! And the wig? Perfect. That is the kind of wig I will put on my male doll, if I had one. But unless you buy a regular mohair one and then trim it, I think the only choice left is commission it... and I do not now how many will trim it for you.

But, nothing can be perfect, right?

This guy is an EID, which means... 70.5cm tall in model body, or 68.5 in superhero body. *Way* too tall. Extremely tall, if I must say. I want this face in a 1/4 sized doll, with a manly body, that should be aroung 45cm or 47cm tall. Damn, I think I'm too exigent in this matters.

I must recall that Iplehouse's last 1/4 boy was pretty decent. I'm talking about Owen. He has the right face, body and height. The problem is that I do not like the makeups. In the first one, the guy has eyeshadow! But, I think you can always commission or get the Iplehouse's Custom Face-up service.

Ah, anyways. From here to the day I get a male doll, probably there will be something like I want in 1/4 size, and will all of the specifications I have.

Hope you had fun reading my rants :3

  1. Rex is on my wishlist. :P I loooove him, and luckily I collect SDs. I'm just a big Iplehouse fan in general. :D
    Owen looks really nice though. And as you said, there is the custom Iplehouse face-up and commissions. :)

    1. Wow I'm an Iplehouse fan too, even if I do not own any Iple -yet-. That Rex is so gorgeous, I wish he was 1/4 sized. I hope you can get him soon!

    2. Yay, a fellow fan! :D
      I have had an Iplehouse JID I once, but I decided I wanted to reshell her as a SID Eva, but have yet to buy her.
      He is not on the top of my wishlist though. :P But hopefully someday. <3

    4. Why Cecile in CDS? Do you need a special skin color for her? :)

  2. I too love Iplehouse. If it weren't because they were a tad more expensive than most other dolls I would have a ton of them on my wishlist. xD
