Poppy and Ryan...



So I dug out my re-vamped Ryan, Poppy's fiancee. He seriously needs to be replaced as I am not happy with this face sculpt. I have been shopping around for a new guy that fits the character and looks similar to the Barbie basics model guy I have and it is the Hunger Games Mockingjay Peeta Doll  you can get them at Walmart too , cheaper, for $21 right now with free pickup at the store which is what I have done- so he has only cost me $22.11 with tax. Black Label, not bad. I also want to get Katniss and Gale, as well, these two are well worth it. As well as Fenwick too, and the other Peeta doll from the first series, I need men in my scenes. My cheerleader ken guy just doesn't cut it as manly enough to go with Poppy and would make a younger teen guy. 


I really love the expression on his face, and think he will go well with my favorite Poppy. He has a romantic look about him too. 

I'm hoping he will also look good in some of the Hommes outfits I have too. I also need to get some sneakers for the boys as they are all notoriously short of them, as well as t-shirts and jeans. 

Hopefully I will be able to pick up this doll by Tuesday from my local Walmart and go from there. I have been having some problems with arthritis in my neck and arm and that has been hindering me doing as much diorama building as I would like lately. I have another doctor's appointment soon. The pain in my arm makes it difficult to lift boxes and do even minor things, and I had planned to take some items to my workshop/storage unit and get cracking on the second part of the stairs for the gothic mansion. Oh well! another setback...lol.

I do like the sculpt of the latest Peeta. He does have a kind, romantic look on him.

I really like Peeta's face as well. I need some men in my doll life as well and you might have just sold me on him!

The other new mockingjay guy, Gale is nice too. Look at their closeups. I also did not know this but they are black label so they are more limited, get them while you can.
Peeta is available at walmart for a lower price, but the only place I am finding Gale is at Barbiecollector and probably Target, though I haven't seen him. I am also planning on getting the new Katniss as well.
