New releases from Takara are announced at various suggested retail values. Depending on if the doll is a Simply release or not, limited in number or limited in store release – some are lower in value and some are higher. I haven’t bought any from top shops or direct from shops like Junie Moon, but some people do. Retail values can begin at approximately $150 and go up from there. Depending on the doll (and if I could get it at the original retail value), I would be willing to pay the original retail value – but if I were going on the secondhand market, I would not want to pay more than $200 over the original retail price unless it’s a much older release (like a BL or hard to find EBL) and even then, I’d be rather reluctant to do so… I’m clearly not the target audience for new releases!

What is the maximum you would pay for a new release?

    With the quality problems Takara is having…I’d rather save for my Parco! BL beauties for the win (or Kenners, since they are your cup of tea. I haven’t had one…yet…)
