    If those are sold separately its probably because he doesnt want to have to jack the price of the doll up and instead keep it roughly the same as the rest of his lineup (shes probably already gonna cost more due to the differences in her body.) Whenever a Dollfie Dream comes with a whole load of extras, it costs a lot more. Kagamine Len cost 5000 yen more just cos he has a keytar and Rin doesn't. And lets not get started on how much DD KOS-MOS cost due to the nature of her extras.
    For people who love that about the characters it might not be so bad, but for people who arent interested in those parts, having the option to get them separately is a blessing. I would much rather go out of my way to pay extra for something I wanted that isnt included than pay extra for something I dont thats there whether I want it or not. Seriously, I wish so badly that Volks had released the keytar as an optional accessory so Len didn't cost so much, because im probably never gonna use it, but thems the breaks.


    I do not think there is much of a cost problem to those who spends loads of money on paints and multiple copies of robots on customizing models and clothes on dollfies. You can compare the availability of KOSMOS and Rin after releases. I thought Rin and Ren are on unlimited purchase over cancelled orders lately.

    Though it is not law-written or black and white, I think most understand who still has (had) a heart in delivering a character the fans like and we can still judge.

    Particularly how it is a premium already or what the quality, promises have been. Particularly when companies had done it in the past, well done, cost lower, and then now most of the services are either DLC or higher price with lesser quality.

    Despite everyone always whine for their wallet, I think there never lacks customers or 'silly fans' who would pay a premium for a truly amazing work for their waifu.

    Side note. Concerning Danny's haters of accusing him liar, cheater, or whatever that stuff. Of course I cannot give a objective proof. I just sort of get it why they are angry. He is amazing. He was high-aimed, calling companies out for their practices and how people are bad with their decisions, but then eventually he is still reduced to the level he is pointing, just perhaps he is failing on another dimension, 'not so limited dolls on a lottery'.

    And I sort of understand what is all those Danny Choo haters. He said that he would do blah blah blah, but he is now getting in line with Bandai, GSC and modern Maxfactory way of milking money with half-assed and underwhelming products with a premium price out of a great IP.

    dunno what you're being so negative about.
    Danny hinted that the smart socket in the back of the dolls was going to be used for the mecha parts. If those are sold separately its probably because he doesnt want to have to jack the price of the doll up and instead keep it roughly the same as the rest of his lineup (shes probably already gonna cost more due to the differences in her body.)

    Dont get me wrong, I think theres some legitimate complaints to be had about smartdolls even though I do like them, but I dont think this one holds much weight.

    This was looking good, it was easy to guess if Danny has to go with Kotobukiya it has to be FAG.

    But then, the outcome of this is very disappointing. All about mecha girls is about armour and weapons. This is just not enough. It looks too much like cost-cut doll, just like what is done to panzer and girls. Please do not push out all those armour and weapon standard in a box of FAG as DLC in smartdoll.
