This year tho, Smart Dolls were the main attraction of the booth.

Only a few were available for sale during AFA tho, and all of them were cleared in just 20 minutes after opening hour on Day 1!

I intend to get a Smart Doll too, but will wait for next year’s AFA for 003 Chitose AKA whitehairloli.jpg instead. w

Meanwhile at the other end of the hall, an unexpected exhibitor known for their 60cm Dollfie Dreams, Volks finally recognised the rising popularity of its dolls and decided to pay a visit this year to AFA!

All of Volks’s past releases of Dollfie Dreams are usually via lottery system (Sometimes Pre-Order Project just like the Macross Frontier x Dollfie Dream) at various Dolpa in Japan, and will usually ended up at sky-rocketing prices via immoral scalpers in the after-market.

Good of them to bring several limited Dollfie Dreams along for sale at AFA, including Saber (Fate/Extra), Saber Alter 2.0, Hatsune Miku, Yuuki Asuna, Kujikawa Rise, Sakuya, Sakuya Mode: Crimson, M.O.M.O. and KOS-MOS Ver. 4.
