Oh yes!

I'd love to know if the Blythe collection handbook will ever be published in English

And if there could ever be a book, video,blog post, anything about how a Blythe doll is made...like photos inside a Blythe factory...I think it would be so interesting to see Blythe on a conveyor belt or having her hair cut or makeup applied by white coat factory technicians!

Also, her thoughts on where factory dolls come from and to be real hard hitting, what the ethics involved are in buying one

I would love to hear what she has to say about the "fake" mangos and UC. She'll probably just say something about how you should only buy from official suppliers but I would love to know if they are fakes or just really bad quality control.

Will Blythe be sold in the US ? Possibly though TRU ?

Would there ever be a 'fan' doll where all the fans could vote on a
website and she would be produced ?

I was really disappointed to see the blythe book with no english
translation

this is awesome!

I too would love to know about Blythe releases in the US and also the book being published in English at some point

One big question that I always think about is would it ever be possible to bring back the EBL/BL mold as a limited re-release?

I would like to know where she gets her inspiration. And, indeed if the books and also the pattern books will ever be translated or dual language. This would create a higher appeal, it keeps me from buying the latest book.

A look inside the process of coming into existance of Blythe girls would absolutely be interesting!

Maybe some hints and tips on how to determine a factory doll. I've also seen sample dolls for sale and I wonder when and who they send samples of new dolls to and how do those end up being sold (Alexis Emerald on Ebay for example in December).

Only question I have is - Will there be any future tanned skinned dolls in FBL/Middie molds, as well as translucent tanned skinned.

Oh and if they would reconsider Licca bodies

I'm definitely curious about this too! I also loved the idea of a quick photo/video tour!

Agreed! Macaron Q-Tea Party seems allllllllmost translucent but not quite. I'm also curious if they have any plans to make a translucent Middie or two?

As of February, there's been no mention of a new Middie release, so I'm curious if they're planning more regular release Middies? So far, the only regular release has been Milk &Honey.

Moooooar Middie info for the Middie fans, basically. :]

I tried to comment but failed; so here are my questions ^.^

1. Are there plans to retire the RBL mold?

2. Do you have any examples of blythe character ideas that did not make it through the initial development stage? Ideas that flopped?

3. Where do the creative minds behind the blythe doll find inspiration?

4. What can you say in respect to the immense international popularity of BLs in Europe and the Americas? How are BLs perceived in Asia?

5. "Blythe Theatre" is one of my favorite ways to see blythe come to life, is there potential for a stop-motion/animated television series?

Is there an entirely new face mold in the works for the future?

And why no more Petites? I wonder if there was ever an explanation for that that I missed somehow?

a 'modern' kenner blythe ??? With her glow ?
