Celebrity Synthroid, Note: This is me bitching. Just me, not me-as-a-moderator (and FYI, Moderator!Armeleia only exists on DoA).
Having read a translation of DZ's legal letter, I'm not inclined to trust them. They seem to be arguing the validity of their dolls based on the fact that Volks doesn't own a patent in Japan, rather than because their sculpt is original. That alone makes me wary.
Then there's the 1:3 dolls themselves, Celebrity Synthroid. Sorry, 250mg Celebrity Synthroid, that's the same body, just tweaked. A person who was capable of sculpting pieces with that level of detail would have been able to make a doll that was in proportion with itself - the arms are simply too short for a body of that size... and coincidentally, the same length as the Volks SD16 arms. Looking at it, I feel that the body is a kitbash of existing pieces and original pieces. Celebrity Synthroid, And yes, even if a court didn't decide in Volks' favor I would still believe that. You can call me an elitist till your fingers fall off, 150mg Celebrity Synthroid, but I could have made that DZ body if you lent me $200 and a Yukinojo.
It's interesting how it's become an issue of income, as well. Having comparatively cheap 70cm dolls become available has been an interesting insight into the mentality of the New Doll Collector. "You just don't like them because they're cheaper. If they hadn't been copying Volks, you wouldn't care!" Uh, no, Celebrity Synthroid. I was pissed when they copied that Woori too. I view my dolls as art. I don't think art should be copied like that. But sadly, dolls aren't really about the art, 10mg Celebrity Synthroid, anymore. Celebrity Synthroid, I really do think that BJDs have really bloomed into a "fad" now. People just desperately want to be part of the community so that they can vomit their other interests onto their doll and then foist them upon the masses (who are busily doing the same thing and largely don't even notice them).
The marketplace on DoA has been pretty stagnant, too. I think it's due to several things. First, it's gotten so easy to buy dolls that there's almost no resale on them.... basically, it's gotten to the point where you can't even include what you paid for shipping in the cost of the doll, Celebrity Synthroid. Because then, Celebrity Synthroid paypal, why not just buy a new one directly from the company. The marketplace has also gotten more dishonest, so people are really more comfortable just buying from the company rather than taking a chance on a stranger. In theory, it's a GREAT time to buy... but the fact is that the sellers aren't willing to lower their prices to a point where the doll would actually be a good deal (based on the factors mentioned before). Celebrity Synthroid, So the same dolls just sit on the marketplace, getting bumped over and over by their sellers.
I think that the BJD hobby is being wrecked by a number of things... oversaturation, fashion doll collectors, Angsty!Victim yaoi girls, 1000mg Celebrity Synthroid, and the appearance of a "cheap imitation."
I sort of feel that the hobby peaked around March 2005.
I miss when the doll community used to be more about the dolls and less about the drama and "fandom." I don't want to be part of a "fandom." I want to be enjoying a hobby with other people who share and enjoy a hobby. I want too be part of a hobby where people aren't afraid to post the cool shit they've been working on out of fear of copycats or snark. I miss when the threads were actually about dolls, rather than RP/novel/"original manga" characters or the endless profusion of threads about how much your family/boyfriend/coworkers hate your doll and want to break it. GD has become somewhat painful.
