Finals are over so the lads have headed to the beach to celebrate the end of their first year in college.
Zayne lobs the frisbee and Justin and Chad reach to catch it.
Only somebody else got there first.
Talking Justin Bieber and Concert Collection One Direction dolls have the same articulated body. They can kneel and assume many other poses that are beyond poor High School Musical Chad. Mattel did not endow Chad with a belly button, but Justin and Zayne both have outies. Push Justin's and he speaks 12 different phrases. Push Zayne's and he sings "What Makes You Beautiful."
Meanwhile Harry and Video Collection Harry are taking a dip.
Video Collection Harry is feeling very pale.
He hopes he can get a nice tan like first wave Harry.
Back on shore, war has broken out and Zayne is taking no prisoners.
"Don't shoot me, Zayne. I'm your cousin!"
"What's the point of being at the beach if you don't get wet, Malik?"
"Well, when you put it that way..."
"Last one in is a rotten egg!"
The original series of One Direction dolls had stiff legs. The Video and Spotlight collection dolls also have stiff legs. Hasbro updated the face molds after the first wave, but I still don't think they do justice to these young men. Fortunately, for the Concert series our teen idols got articulated ankles and knees that enable them to assume more active poses.
Justin bounces the ball off his knee.
Liam catches it with his shoulder and lobs it back.
Justin returns the volley with his elbow.
But Liam gets the last laugh with a head butt.
"I just need to catch my breath for a minute," pants Justin. "Liam really gave me a workout!"
"In that case it's important to stay hydrated," says Tommy (Fashionista Ken). "Bottoms up!"
Ken's legs are longer, but Bieber and One Direction pants are cut long so Ken can share them. Their feet are close to the same size so they can trade shoes as well.
After a long day of sun and fun, Zayne takes a siesta while Tommy noodles on his guitar.
"Supper time!" calls Justin.
Louis, however, is the type who never wants to get out of the water.
Hello from Spain, i like your guys and your beach. Nice pics. Very fun. I see they end their school. Great. Keep in touchReplyDelete
Thanks for the compliments. I couldn't go to the beach myself so shooting this photo story was the next best thing.
Great post. I miss seeing your stories. Hopefully now that finals are over, we will see more. Thanks for the review. I wonder if my Justin's have a belly button. I never even checked. Loved all the action shots.ReplyDelete
I was teaching extra sessions this semester and that last month I was so swamped with grading I didn't have time to do any posts. The good thing is I made more money so I was able to take advantage of sales on these Justin Bieber and One Direction dolls. Hopefully this summer I will be able to get in more play and photo time with my recent purchases.
Awesome post Limbe dolls! Your dio looks great! I love the action shots as well.ReplyDelete
Hi Georgia Girl,Delete
I'm glad you like the dio. These articulated bodies are really fun to work with.
I love your pictures!ReplyDelete
Hi Ginger Lola,Delete
I checked out your Skull Academy site and am blown away. I have about two dozen Monster High dolls but they haven't gotten much camera time yet. You inspire me to do some posts with them.
Wonderful story and post! Everyone was so active, including the puppy.ReplyDelete
Glad you liked the story. I didn't want to do a dry, clinical comparison of the different bodies but I did want to show what they can do.
Thanks for using the story to show the different bodies. I prefer the first wave faces for the 1 Direction guys, but the later waves seem to have the better bodies. Thanks again for sharing ;-)ReplyDelete
Only the concert collection singing 1 Direction dolls have good, articulated bodies. I didn't like the faces when you first posted about them on your blog but I really like their fashions!
