download1
Integrity Toys  sent an email to their W Club on 4/24/14 that has many buzzing. From Integrity:
Are You Ready for the Next Big Reveal?!

Our fans have been waiting for this announcement and the entire team truly appreciates everyone’s patience while our stars are making themselves beautiful for their next big showing!

At last, we are proud to announce that all registered W Club members are invited to join the IT design team for the first online webinar of 2014 to celebrate the unveiling of the Fashion Royalty™ 2014 main collection, the Poppy Parker™ “The Girl from  I.N.T.E.G.R.I.T.Y.” collection, Tulabelle™ and the next wave in the JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS™ collection.

**While we typically do not disclose what dolls we are going to cover in our reveal, because of the unusual timing and the refresh of Nu.Face and Homme, which will be debuting later this year, we are making a one-time exception to advise which brands will be included in this presentation. But that’s all of the sneak info that you are getting out of us for now!

Wednesday Wants: Montaigne Market Elise Jolie

Sold. Out. This LE300 edition, reported here and here – gone in a flash. So it’s secondary-market-city for most of us…you may want to wait for a bit when Integrity’s new 2014 dolls start shipping, and the sold out editions start to press on demand, thereby realizing more reasonable prices. That, and those paying $900 or more right now won’t sustain when the W Club lottery hits…the price may drop before starting its way back up as the year progresses, and the doll becomes harder to find.

For those collecting Fashion Royalty dolls like this, others out there for Bergdorf Goodman, Colette and Jeffrey have strong secondary market prices (in fact, they are very hard to find)  – and eventually so will Montaigne Market. But with a scant handful being held for lottery by W Club members, this opportunity isn’t quite over yet…so patience may be your virtue. Good luck to the W Club Members!!! Die hard collectors, get her now. Click the images below to take you to Integrity’s archive to learn more about each edition.
