    Anime Character Dolls -- Life Sized

    Like This Thread!
    I ran across something really odd: The Web site for a Japanese store that sells life-sized anime character dolls from a number of different series. First link is to their home page with views of their showroom, 2nd link is to their online catalog. Text is all Japanese.

    If I got the exchange rate right, each of these dolls is around $2,000-$3,000 a copy, plus shipping. The dolls are articulated and poseable, and the store offers alternate outfits from series that you can dress your character doll in.

    I saw characters from Eva, Tenchi, Chobits and more. I didn't notice any Inuyasha characters, though. (The idea of someone buying a life-sized poseable Kikyo doll inspires thoughts too weird for polite company.)

    Links are:


    https://secure.pmoon.co.jp/TOUSHINDAI/index.html

    https://secure.pmoon.co.jp/TOUSHINDAI/Chara/Chara.html

    But what an addition to your anime home theater (assuming you're rich enough to afford one and the doll, too)! Either that, or the store owners think there are a lot of rich, lonely anime fans out there. (^_*)

    Anyone who is willing to buy those things must need a lot of therapy. Or maybe it's just me.

    Those things look fairly cute, but let's get real. Who outside a few no-life fairly well off fanboys are gonna buy these things?

    These Real Doll(TM) (which I won't link obviously) imitation anime figures pop up every now and then when somebody newly discovers them. But they are really old news, and they do sell, even a used market, and you wouldn't believe who buys them sometimes.

    Wow!

    I look up those links and I saw Sasami as Pretty Sammy, Ryoko, Ruri (from Nadesico), and SNK character Nakoruru.

    If I had the Cash I'd get Asuka, Rei and those 5' Tall Gundam Kits..

    considering the ammount of DVDs and other crap I have, I don't see how those would make me look much more like a geek..

    I said it before, and I'll say it again:
    for 2000-3000$, you get a real girl to dress up as an anime charicter and act the part too. Then you'd have your own anime-charicter slave.
