I've had my eye on Robecca for months. I've had her Walmart holding page saved on my favorites for MONTHS (which has said 'out of stock online' FOR MONTHS). I've checked the Mattel website FOR MONTHS just to get a sales date or more information on the doll or *something* that was helpful. I've even been tempted to just give up and order Robecca on ebay. Finally I found Robecca (along with Venus and a few of the other 2012 dolls as well) at Target while I was out of state. My 6 year old and I were elated!!!
I can't begin to say how amazing Robecca is. Pictures really do NOT do justice to the details of this doll. In all honesty, I'm surprised she isn't limited edition - she has THAT much detail from her industrial blue/black gorgeous hair to her imprinted toes. Her clock theme is represented on her goggles, in her cog eyes (yep, she has liquid-copper-colored cogs painted on her irises!!!), and on the raised imprint pattern on her entire body. Her modern dress, Victorian outer hoop skirt, hatbox clock bag, cute little robot penguin, and "rocket boots" just seal her Victorian steampunk heritage.
Robecca has absolute universal appeal - great doll for ALL ethnicities (she's British too!), a must for all MH collectors, and definitely appeals to fans of literature (steam punk and Victorian genres) and sci fi. Can't wait for the characters to make their debut in the Ghouls Rule dvd!!
If you stumble upon Robecca at a good price, don't hesitate - BUY THIS DOLL!!!
