    I still stand by my original opinion on it, that it looks WAY too similar to the basic doll to justify it's price. And I'm also not a fan of the facial expression, it works for the basic doll but for this, something she's obviously a bit more dressed up for (not in action/adventuring) it just...doesn't match up that great. I don't know. I also wish they would have done one of her different outfits, like either a fancier version of the one they did the singing doll in, or the outfit she wears at the end of the movie...or were those two the same outfit? I've only seen the movie twice so far, I can't remember.

    All in all, this doll just looks very rushed to me...ESPECIALLY when you compare it to the LE dolls that Frozen had to celebrate it's release.

    i think it was already damaged before they even shipped it. The box that came with it was perfect and it was bubble wrapped. Almost all customers of yoybuy got damaged dolls and even far worst than mine. At least 2 even have the top of the box completely torn off. Yoybuy promised me 50 usd but its been days and still nothing. There was someone I knew who received an email informing her that her doll was broken. I guess this was done because alot already complained. And after the buyer requested for a refund they replied back that the doll is not damage and they will not refund her. This company is full of crap!

    I love the film moana so much! I thought it was way better than frozen because it made me laugh and cry more than the latter. I thought the film was amazing! Unfortunately i dont feel the same with the doll at least for now because I havent seen the box yet. Who knows she might look better with the box. I just feel like she doesnt look any different with her classic doll. I found her classic doll so amazing so I kinda expected them to do better with the LE. I guess i expected too much. The dress i find it accurate to the film. It is pretty imo. But the doll itself doesnt look accurate to me. Her body doesnt match the film either. She looks like a short person rather than a young person. She looks like she had a stunted growth or something. Her face looks alright but she doesnt look moana. She looks fiercer than the one in the film.

    I ordered from minkas as well. I like how fast she response to your emails. I ordered and paid thursday and then on saturday she informed me that they were able to get my doll and its on its way to hongkong. After receiving shes gonna send me photos before shipping her to me. Im hoping her bow will look perfect because I have 3 snows and their boxes were not in good shape lol i heard she packages well with utmost care so im confident. Shes so nice to work with

    I loved the Moana movie, but I do not care for the LE doll. Now rather than thinking she looks too similar to her basic doll (which I have), I just don't like that expression. The Moana in the movie has sass but she's a sweet girl I'd want to be friends with. I wouldn't want to be friends with that doll, lol. The doll looks...not nice, and for lack of a better word, exactly what Pxv703 called her (unpleasant/b**chy). Just not in character. Might be the angle though, I suppose, I don't know. I'm kind of glad I don't like her much because then it doesn't matter that I don't have money for her.:p All that being said, I liked the movie, if you haven't seen it, please do so.:)

    Very quiet in here for Moana with her release being tomorrow for Europe.

    1500 we have - who will be trying for one? I'm off Christmas shopping tomorrow so will pop into my local store to see if they have any left and make a decision.

    So the Moana doll is so much more beautiful than in the pictures. Her crown has mini shells that make up the flowers, and the sculpture of Pua and Hei Hei is very detailed and large. Her box is very appropriately detailed. The only thing I wish were better is the necklace. It does open, however the outside is not painted to look like the opalescent inside of a shell. It's just a dull blue.

    Unfortunately, I can't afford her at this time. But if there's a DVD doll, I hope to get that one.

    Does that mean it will be like that for all of the EU? Not a fan if that's the case :(

    I wasn't in love with the stock doll photos, I hope/know she will look better in person. Since I loved the movie so much, I am definitely going to see if I can get her in store tomorrow.

    I would think that's not the case (you're in the uk, right? so the movie in your country is called Moana) but maybe all of the 1500 pieces we got for the EU are named Vaiana?

    That's what I'm thinking but I can't see them making say 700 with Moana on for the UK - the allocation would be all over the place.
