Any Synthetiks-related news, Davecat? (Dec 2007)

Sdtrk: ‘Winter in Canada’ by Elisa Gabbai

Not one, but two fellow iDollators, Mahtek and PB Shelley, have simultaneously brought another noteworthy Doll manufacturer to my slavering attention: Phoenix studios. Absolutely lovely.


Left, Miss January 2008; right, Miss February 2008

Hand crafted by the creator of RealDoll, through a new sister company of Abyss Creations, Phoenix Studios, these dolls will only be available as limited editions. Each Boy Toy is named after a month, and the quantity of each doll that will be made will be equal to the number of days in that month. There will only be 31 Miss December dolls, 31 Miss January, etc. These are extremely limited quantities, and each doll will be hand detailed by Matt McMullen and include a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity.

So when Matt wasn’t rocking out with his rock band of rock, Nick Black, he was developing these Dolls in secret. Very clever, Mr McMullen, very clevair. Seems that he’s taken various developmental aspects of RealDolls and refined them (highly tear- and stain-resistant silicone, lighter weight displacement) for use in the Boy Toy Dolls. Our hope is, of course, that those developments are implemented with RealDolls in the near future.
As you’ll note, they’re definitely aiming for the collector’s demographic, what with the limited edition quality of their lasses. And you know there’s gonna be someone who gets one Doll for every month. Prof.Sakai, I’m looking in your direction…

Also, I ran across this rather nice piece of fiction called ‘I, Real Doll‘ on Everything2.com:

I am alive, if you only knew it. To your eyes, your senses, I am nothing more than a simulacrum of a woman made up of silicone, rubber and steel. You must position me to strike a pose, paint me with makeup, dress me with your ex-girlfriend or ex-wife’s clothing. You care for me in your little ways and ensure my safety, take me out for trips on the boat or in the car as though I were perfectly real. Over time you came to regard me as your ideal fantasy: a woman you can get physical pleasure from without having emotional baggage to deal with. I don’t talk. I don’t move. I don’t leave when you’re in a grouchy mood. I just sit in the corner or in the closet and wait… for you, my owner, my master. I am the ultimate submissive, entirely dependent upon you.

Rare as it is to see online writings that don’t demonise Dolls and Doll culture, it’s rarer still to see a favourable work of fiction, and rarer still to read one from the viewpoint of the Synthetik. NightShadow, you get four Thumbs Up from myself and the Missus!

Happy 23rd, peoples! Hope your holidays are a Gift Explosion!

    Wow. Do you have any entries comparing products from all the main players in the business like Orient Industry?

  2. Miss Hyde writes:

    WOW! I think thats a really good idea, with the days in the month and stuff! And even though its not fair how pretty and skinny those dolls are, i think the’s kinda cute! Shame, their probably going to cost a fortune. If i win the lottery, i’ll buy you the collection 🙂

  3. Mahtek writes:

    Aren’t they just adorable? I’ve heard that Miss February is already sold out. 🙁

    The silicone used is so different that the Boy Toys must be made in an entirely different studio to prevent cross contamination issues.

    I’ve been looking at different brands for my next doll. Three is my storage limit, and I was thinking about getting something different. I have a few months of saving before I can even consider a new doll, but Boy Toy is now at the head of the list!

  4. Miss Hyde writes:

    Just thought i’d show off, I’M WATCHING DOCTOR WHO! Before you! Lol, merry christmas! Love hyde x

  5. PBShelley writes:

    First of all, Happy Holidays to all who are reading these words! Hopefully they’re safe and (for the most part) sane. Sanity is over-rated anyway 😉

    Secondly, thanks for the credit D.C.; I pretty much figured Mahtek had beat me to it LOL 😛 Aren’t they lovely? But damn, Miss February is already sold out??? Oh well, it’s not like I can afford one anytime soon. Let’s not even think about the (lack of) storage space. But it’s good to see that Matt’s business is already taking off!

    But for my next doll (yeah, whenever), I’ll be looking for something completely different, such as this delightful creation!

    And Ms Hyde, no worries please; I’ve never seen any doll that is not pretty and skinny (or I’ve not looked at it for long)! Methinks not many would be sold if there were LOLOL Besides, a doll is quite different from a living breathing Real Girl (but so nice when there are none to be had 😉 )

    Happy Holidays to all, and Lily-chan and Eden-chan send hugs xD

    I think ‘Miss January’ actually looks a lot like me! Haha! Only my nose is smaller and cuter 😛
    Happy Crimbo to you and your gal.

    Tim –
    Actually, I don’t, but y’know, a post like that isn’t a bad idea… For accuracy and the sake of being impartial, I think the fairest way to compare the various companies’ products would have to be for them to send me a sample Doll from each of their lines, as it’s the only way to be sure. 🙂

    I’ll tell you this, though; Orient industry’s myriad lines of Dolls tends to confuse me, as there’s (unless I miss my guess) at least six… some are latex-skinned, some are silicone… it’s confusing, and attempting to tell them apart reveals me as the mere piker that I actually am.

    Hyde-chan –
    Maybe I should’ve bought you a scratch-off ticket for Crimbo, then. 🙂

    And technically, I was watching Doctor Who a whole two nights before you were! Granted, it was ‘The Robots of Death’, but that still counts, damnit…

    Mahtek –
    Miss February is already sold out?? Man, that was quick! But then, it is the shortest month…

    Three is your storage limit?? That’s limited thinking! Having seen your space, I reckon you could get at least three more Dolls to join Phoebe and Penelope — simply keep them in your studio! Two of them could lie on some sort of cot (‘for guests’, you see), and you could probably rig up some type of stand for the fifth lass. You’d undoubtedly have to curtail the drop-ins from relatives, though… I mean, moreso than usual. 🙂

    PBS and everyone –
    Credit where credit is due, naturally. 🙂 Boy Toys definitely have a lock on a unique and distinctive look! I daresay they’re better-realised versions of the Anna Mae-type RealDoll — they’re not as over-done, it seems. Of course, I’m wondering how their silicone feels in comparison to a RealDolls

    And don’t rule out getting a sexy special friend for Lily and Eden! If your book takes off, anything can happen! Like a book taking off like a plane; no-one expects printed literature to take flight, as that’s just weird. 🙂

    And happy holiday hugs right back to your lasses!

    elfboi & Jazzi –
    I know, aren’t they, though? And where have you two been hiding yourselves, might I ask?? 🙂

    ButtonJess –
    You are a Doll in your own right. 🙂 Happy Crimbo to you and all!

    So, did everyone have a good christmas? I got this great new gothick lolita dress, I’ll have to lend it to shi-chan some time! Lol! Hyde x

  10. Davecat writes:

    My Crimbo was sedate, as per the past four or so years. Eh, these things happen.

    Fair warning; if you lend that dress to the Missus, it might disappear under mysterious circumstances, only to reappear in photo/video shoots. Just sayin’. 🙂

  11. Miss Hyde writes:

    Hmmm, Maybe it will be safer in my own hands!
    😉

    Gah, my Gravatar hasn’t changed yet.

    I blame the govenment
