When I started my countdown over 10 days ago, I had every intention of making Vanessa Perrin Number 1. After all, there were six versions from two different molds released. For the first time ever, collectors were actually paying high secondary market prices for mold 3.0 versions and buying multiples of single versions.
The character that I placed at Number 1 is Elise Jolie. Until 2014, my favorite version of Elise Jolie was Blue Blood from the 2009 Iconic Convention. The only version of Elise that is on my grail list is Engaging.
2014 added three new versions. The mainline doll was called On The Rise. She had an edition size of 700 and sold for $135. I had originally passed on this doll but wound up getting a nude one on secondary market. There is something special about this face up. I really like the smaller lips. I don't know how I missed this doll (it was probably the mustard yellow dress that was throwing me).
Best of 2014
