That store is great for Pullips but their Blythes are severely overpriced Sad

I've been thinking about getting a Pullip.  I was first introduced to them on the swap thread, and I saw how beautiful they were... and then I stepped back and thought about it, and figured if I still wanted one in a few months, then I would seriously think about it.  Well... it's been a few months, and I'm seriously thinking about it.  Either Latte or Veritas, I've decided.

Veritas might be easier to get right now.

Thevalleyofthedolls.com is probably best for shipping time and price. They are very prompt and communicate very well with you.

I've bought two pullips on ebay so far and I haven't been pleased with either seller and it's always something to do with shipping  Roll Eyes

also if you're looking into getting one and want to see pictures, the pullip style forum has alot of helpful members that take some beautiful photographs!

http://www.pullipstyle.com is also a great resource. She also has a forum, and people are pretty helpful. The reason some Pullips are more expensive than others (esp on eBay) is because Pullips are only released monthly, and never remade. So the newer ones are cheaper since there are still more of them. Some of the more recent ones were collaborations with Sanrio or h.Naoto (a popular Japanese designer) so they are a bit more money than normal.

There are Pullip forums on LJ, but be warned that a nude doll is still normally a minimum of $55 or so. Some people get a little annoyed when someone shows up and asks to get one for $20 since obviously they haven't done any research into what the going prices are.  That said, there are some really great resources out there if you look for them, and it's fun to customize them and stuff too!

 I really REALLY want both a blythe and a pullip, especially the Hello Harvest blythe, which I am smitten by. My brthday is coming up soon and I'd love to get one of each. I'm a uk person...any suggestions? Nasty Nip has sold out of the Hello Harvest girls.

Edit:: ~I just brought a pullip from pullipstyle.com. their website is very easy to use!!

Where can I find one for relatively cheap, or something cheaper and similar to a Blythe?

Seriously, which (& where) are the good knock-offs of Blythes or Pullips or J-Dolls?
Please this is a question for people to whom "good" "knock-off" is not an oxymoron.
Maybe the purists won't like this question.

PS: sorry, i did see the post about LittleBigEyes but can't find any; that was also mentioned about them being hard to find.

PS: ok well i found this hong kong one that looks nice... http://www.yesanimation.com/bemi12fapopd.html or http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130061735313 if anyone else is interested in a nonstandard jointed doll.  can't spend $30/$40 on this right now myself, though.

Wow I just found another alternative, on Flickr, oddly enough.  SO friendly-looking!

They are called Kuhrn:
