Rayna Ahmadi is a fairly new mold to Integrity Toys. She was introduced in 2011, and I can actually write that I own every version!
2011 IFDC Go Home
2011 Jet Set Convention High Toned
2012 IFDC Rock Me Baby
2015 ITBE Rare Jewel
2016 Defiant (2015 Design Competition Winner Jason Kramer)
2016 Reckless Collection Mad Love
2017 Fairytale Convention Natural Wonder
2017 Heirloom Collection Neo-Romantic
Three of these were received in 2017, and each is worthy of a position in my countdown. Which do you think I chose?
I chose the one that was received December 23, just in time to be considered. Neo-Romantic Rayna Ahmadi was a "pass" by many collectors when the Heirloom Collection was previewed. There were a lot of individuals who did not like the ensemble. (The sting of missing AKA Gigi had not been forgotten by me, so I was not going to let the clothing stand in my way!)
Fortunately, the production doll looks much better than the promotion version. Here is Neo-Romantic full length in the box.
So what does she look like outside the box? There has been some concern from collectors about the unfinished edges on the sleeves, but I think they would've been too bulky looking otherwise. I adore the symmetry of the color block in the pants.
