Today Volks released images and details about the upcoming Sakura Amamiya Fashion doll from Sakura Wars among its Dollfie Dream line.
The doll isn’t available for pre-order yet, but its official shop listing indicates that orders will be available between June 6 and June 12. Deliveries will start on June 15.
The price isn’t exactly cheap, set at 74,800 yen, which translates approximately into $697.
This price tag shouldn’t surprise as this kind of fashion doll is seen as a luxury item in Japan. The level of craftsmanship involved in the Dollfie Dream line (and other similar products from other manufacturers) is extremely high.
It’s most certainly not a cheap hobby even considering that the garments created for this kind of doll are usually priced comparably to full-sized clothes for humans.
