Today marks the period for Volks USA to begin their online FCS campaign for those living in North America. It’s been rather quiet leading up to this event which makes us all wonder which heads will be joining FCS for this order period. Usually Volks USA has lots of information about upcoming sculpts but perhaps they are busier with other pursuits these days (such as new LE lotteries!)? Or maybe it’s because all of these sculpts have been released in USA FCS before.
We’re exceptionally grateful that Volks USA has carried on the tradition of FCS. One important thing to remember is that this is a *truncated* version of what FCS actually is. There are no wigs or “Welcoming Outfits” available. There is also less selection as far as body type as well. We do get the advantage of ordering some sculpts in the limited ebony skintone. (<—This tone has proven much more popular outside of Japan than in it.)
Nevertheless, it’s wonderful to see the return of online FCS for customers in North America!
A couple interesting notes concern the FCS- one is the ToU pop up you have to agree to before you can use their website to plan your purchase. Volks specifically states that it is prohibited to reproduce and post their images online for the FCS information specifically. This was a point of confusion before for some users who wanted to know about online FCS and the selection that is involved. I’m glad Volks is specifically stating not to do it- now there’s no confusion. それ無理
So that being said, let’s talk about what’s offered this time around…. without pictures! It looks like we have a nice selection of 5 sculpts from the late 50’s and early 60’s. (Click the sculpt links for their instagram searches if you’d like to see what they look like!) SD-F-58, SD-F-59 (Saki), SD-F-60 (Coco), SD-F-62, & SD-F-63.
The only real downside, for me, of online FCS is that you can only choose between two make-up looks. The good news is: they arrive and you’ll find they are exquisite. I would suggest that if you order a Online FCS that you opt for make-up whether you would like it or not because then you can order zouks to go with your new dolls. They are easily worth the extra price. I collect different colored zouks (imagine that!) and FCS is the best way to try new looks in these gorgeous glass eyes. For more information on all amazing zouks please refer to this link!
Flipping to the SD Midi line available during this FCS period we have SDM-F-33, SDM-F-37, SDM-F-40, & SDM-F-43. As you can see from the selection, there’s some really lovely dolls in this group. my particular favorite has to be the SDM-F-33 and SDM-F-40. I can’t say enough for the size, either! I love traveling with an SD Midi compared to larger dolls. It’s literally all the charm of larger SDs in a very tiny package.
So what are you waiting for? If you’re in Volks USA customer area you should totally go check out what they have available! Volks Online FCS is back and we’re thrilled! If you have any question or comments about FCS ping me in the comments and I will do my best to answer them.💗
