At a certain point, I realized I have way too many too-similar dolls eating up too much space and money. And now I have 2009 Malibu Repro Barbie adding to the clutter.
The first repro looks almost identical to the original. The sculpt is a little different and less detailed, but the paint job is 98% perfect.
The new repro face paint is crazy. It's more like a Then and Now doll. The 2009 body is much nicer than the previous MOD repros. I'm a bit addicted to bending the legs. They click like vintage!
Now I have to decide whether it stays or goes. I wish I could head swap, but they don't match. Neither is as orange as the original.
