They aren't in stock at FAO Schwarz yet, but they should be soon any day. Edition size isn't listed for the blonde, but my guess is that both dolls are limited editions of 500, since that is what is listed under the brunette doll. Both are reasonably priced at $50.

I was browsing on Flickr today, actually looking for a real-life picture of a Goodness and Gossamer Glinda, and I found this gorgeous photo of Blue Skies Glinda posted by Titancia.
I still have not purchased this doll--I have though about buying her forever, but I have wanted to find real-life pictures of her before actually buying her. Now, after looking through Titancia's photos, I probably do actually need to find this doll. In fact, I may even need to "exchange" Goodness for Blue Skies. I just have a think for weird colored hair. And she's just gorgeous.

- Scarlett O'Hara. She's dressed in the famous gown she crafted out of her green drapes. She's listed at $350, LE 100, which stunned me at first glance. But she's apparently a larger doll, standing at 22". She's currently listed on backorder status, expected to ship by 11/11/08.
- Dorothy Gale. A beloved character from the Wizard of Oz, she stands 15" tall (which is taller than the other 12" Dorothy from the standard Tonner collection) with 15 points of articulated movement. This doll is based on actress Judy Garland. She's listed at $140, LE 500, also scheduled to ship on 11/11/08.
- Ellowyne Wilde Purple Rain. LE 350, this 16" doll is listed at $150 and is in stock. This doll has actually gotten rave reviews (5 out of 5 from 19 purchasers, which is fairly unusual), too.
The doll reminds me of a macabre version of the Doll of the Year American Model, Winter Solstice, only with Tyler 2.0 face. Keeping her platinum with gray-blue eyes and larger red lips has given her a true wintery feel. I love this doll's edgy, avant garde look, with the oversized hat and super curvaceous silhouette. She'd make a great addition to the Charles Dickens character trio, or just alone as a seasonal doll. I think I'll display her year-round in sunny San Diego.
