I'm torn on Tink, and not sure if I'll get her. I have the Designer one from years ago and love her. I don't think this one is as nice, so maybe I'll just be happy with the one I have.
At first I was excited about the doll and still I think she's quite pretty, but she's lacking a wow factor. The pearlescent skin doesn't bother me, but it's not a preference either. It's harder to photograph, but I think it's okay in person on display. There are some nice elements included in the fashion, but overall it looks quite cheap. Not at all like what we used to get. I was more impressed with the first picture here as the colors looked more vibrant, but larger more detailed pics make the colors look a bit faded and make the material look more cheap. The could have done a lot more with her wings. They look more play line and less collectible quality. I don't think they captured her personality at all either.
I agree about her face looking older. Tink is a fairy and supposed to be cute, little and mischievous.
I like the character, so I might cave, but I'll wait to see pics IRL.
As an aside, the dolls renews my sadness that they stopped the designer series and the new movies. I was hoping for a Silver Mist and Rosetta at least. I fear if they bring them back, they won't be of the same quality in material and design. I still hope for them, though.
