Lea 3 – Hard Rock

17 Jun

I think I said in an earlier post that the Hard Rock dolls don’t appeal to me enough to make me want to buy them. Well, now I have to take this back, as I recently got hold of this one …

Hard Rock Lea Doll 2006

I think Lea is my favourite sculpt and this version, produced in 2006, is a good one. She’s not as outre as some of the other HRC goth princesses (emo 2008, rockabilly 2009) – next to them her skull-and-crossbones tattoo and two tone ginger and black hair seem almost tame. Maybe this is why I could afford her without having to take a mortgage out. From some poking around that I’ve done on the internet, it seems that there is a dark-haired version of this doll which is more collectable. I don’t know who decided this, but they are wrong. Ginger Leas, as I hope to prove to you again soon with another acquisition I’m planning, are the creme de la creme of barbieworld.

    Ive been coveting her myself! Shes great…I do love Red haired dolls and oddly enough I just aquired a Hard Rock doll myself…I think its the Emo one she has blond and black hair and a spider tattoo? I like dolls that have that sort of slightly less ‘nice’ look about them…

    That’s the one I meant! She’s an amazing doll. I find it very strange that Mattel, in some ways the champions of nice, are producing these 🙂 thanks for posting
