Sorry there’s been such a delay with posting but I have been going through a house move and it’s taken quite a lot out of me. Needless to say, there’s lots of wonderful Volks events coming up so let’s look at a little summary of what is happening currently in doll world:
Volks USA is gearing up for the Afterevent Following Dolpa 39. There’s some interesting new additions to the way they are doing their processing: LE dolls are being sold on a ‘first come first serve’ basis. It’s a little strange given how crazy “click wars” can be.
It seems as though this method was successful after being used for the last dolpa for SDM Kira and Nana. It also brings up some questions as well and has some issues that may make the international lottery a more attractive option for many people.
First of all the orders will be fulfilled months past the lottery win date- in the case of the current lottery dolls will be delivered in “early August”. In the international lottery on Volks Inc website the orders are usually fulfilled a month or two after winning. If you win on Volks USA it is at least two months until you will see your doll.
It makes me wonder if Volks is making extra dolls to order based on the following international demand for their products? The only thing that will confirm this, however, is watching how many dolls are available after each event and how quickly they sell out.
At any rate, there’s no complaints coming from this chirping, grouchy budgie- I’m completely happy with the fact that LE dolls have been made available again and I hope many, many people will support Volks USA no matter the time delay on their products.
They are also getting ready to release their round of outfits from the HTD Kyoto 15 as a “click war” event i.e. ‘first come, first serve”. It’s a wonderful opportunity to pick up any of those darling spring outfits in case you missed out on them!
As for Volks Japan it seems as though they are also getting ready for their product “click war” and doll international lottery. The outfit sale will be held this weekend on May 26th with staggered time releases depending on if the item is resin or vinyl oriented. Super Dollfie/Multiple Clothing lines, Dollfie Dream/Tenshi no Koromo. The official times and items lists are located here.
Luckily, as far as the LE dolls are concerned, the Volks International event (Results announced from May 31st to June 1st, 2018) happens the week before the Volks USA event takes place on June 1st@11:00AM to June 10th, 2018 @6:00PM (PT). This means if you are lucky enough to reside in North America you can enter on the international site lottery and if you do not win you can then try to purchase on the Volks USA website as well.
