This took quite a lot of work to get my hands on! As you may know, these dolls wont be on shelves for another 3 weeks. But of course, I couldn’t wait. I went to my local Target and told customer service they had an item in their inventory that I wanted. I gave them the DCPI number (thanks to @eahdolls for finding it) and they said they indeed had the dolls. So as I was waiting for them to bring it out, they radioed in to the cashier and said “This sticker says we can’t sell these until the 28th.” So I was like DAMN, FOILED. And I got outta there before I started fake crying (or maybe real crying actually).
Toys “R” Us was nearby so I checked there but they didn’t even have them in their inventory. I was bummed because I didn’t know any other Targets nearby but I checked my GPS just to see. The next Target was 10 miles away. And I said to myself, “Are you really going to drive 10 miles for a doll you don’t even know if you can buy?” And I mean it was more of a rhetorical question because I mean duh of course I am.
So I get to Target #2 and I’m hoping to get a young rule-breaker but the service desk has an old man. I give him the DCPI number and tell him there are 6 dolls in that box and 2 Harley Quinn dolls and I want one. He looks at me like “How do you know the specifics of our boxes and what’s in them?” and he directs me to another desk in electronics/toys where a pretty young girl is working. She says “Okay I’ll go get it for you!” And disappears into the back. And my heart is racing because I just KNOW she’s going to come back and give me the “sticker story”. I had this whole story ready about my sick little sister who’s Birthday was before the 28th and cant you please please help me I wont tell. But nope! She comes back with a Harley Quinn doll in her hands and gives it to me like it was nothing. She either didn’t see a sticker or didn’t care. I was holding my breath as the cashier scanned it, half expecting sirens to go off, but it scanned as normal and I walked out with it, kinda feeling like I stole it and got away with it.
The whole ordeal took like 2 hours and driving in Sunday traffic but was it worth it? YEAH. I was thinking about buying more and reselling them but the idea is just kinda :/ to me. But if you want to know the specifics of how to try to get them early, don’t hesitate to ask!
EAH Ever After High Rosabella repaint. Okay guys, I made some final changes. Can you spot them? I actually wanted her lip color to look more greyish since it was inspired by Lime Crime’s “cement” & “black velvet” velveteens lipstick. #ooakdollrepaint #dollcustom #repaintooak #roguelively #custom #repaint #faceup #ooakdoll #art #limecrimeinspiredlook #eahdolls #eah #everafterhigh
Thanks to @EAHDolls I was able to confirm that two of my local targets do have the DC gals in stock, however both attempts to obtain Bumblebee were thwarted by employees respecting the street dates. I can't blame them, but I really want her!
That said, I'm interested to see what hybrids are made from the DC Gals bodies. I think a combo of their torso with EAH legs would make for a pretty cool doll! Hopefully they are a) compatible and b) easy enough to pop off like last year's Barbies. That all remains to be seen though!
I'm enjoying everyone's photos of the new gals!!
Anyone know what the official tag for DC Superhero Girls is going to be? Currently there are about 3 variants!
Had alittle hard time displaying them up so that I can see them all properly! But finally done! My #Eah shelf! I obviously have more Rebels than Royals hahahahah.
