Grail JLS Completed!

Hey Gang!  

So a while back (2011) Dana of A Philly doll collector talked about the JLS dolls! 
I know I wanted to add them to my dolls and I think many of you did too! I like
me many of you have been adding them slowly to your doll collection.

I got my Marvin back in 2013!

And my Alston I got on eBay with a good shipping price in 2015!

They were pretty easy to find! The harder two were the JB and the Oritse at
a good price and good shipping price!  I got the two just recently.  Oritse
without his outfit ....but with the hat and

and JB New in box!

So now my JLS are complete! I not much of their original outfits might stay around.
I have started to look for outfits I like on them better in.
 Will I re-body them?  Who knows! They do have short neck which look a
little strange. Finding male bodies is more of a challenge!

OK, Thanks For Looking!

Congrats on getting all of your guys from JLS! It may have taken a while, but your diligence in waiting for the right one to come along seems to have paid off! The toughest part of finding new bodies for them will likely be getting good skintone matches. There are ways to modify the heads to fit on either action figure necks or current Ken style necks. Whatever you do, I am sure you will be happy!

Cool! I want them all, too. I have Marvin, but not the others.

Congratulations on getting the complete set. I like the detail in their faces. Now you just have to find them that new wardrobe and feature them in a story.

I have JB his hair cut is so cute. He's a very popular teenager in my dollie world. I'd love to rebody him but I can't think of a teen articulated doll in his dark skin

Muff said...

Congrats! I've never seen any of these dudes in person. The dolls, I mean, lol.

Vanessa said...

Nice! I like JB the best. I don't have any of these fellas. Nice seeing them all together.

Thanks for your comments Phyllis, RoxanneRoxanne ,dbg of BDE, Carrickters, AC Lanc, Muff and Vanessa!

Phyllis and AG Lanc, It will be hard to find articulated bodies for these boys! I have a hard time find bodies for my older AA Steven/Ken dolls!

RoxanneRoxanne, I really like them all! They need more blog time!

dbg of BDE, Thanks! Do you have these dolls NIB for your collection? You should. You collect seems to be a documentation of dolls along with play.

Carrickters, You are so right!

Muff, sadly they weren't sold in stores here!

Vanessa they make nice teens/early 20's dolls!
