FR2 Veronique Lottery Debate

This morning I woke up and went straight to the WClub Forum because I'm anxiously making a couple of purchases from some friends in the buy/sell/trade section of the site (which btw I LOVE, because it has given me a chance to stay in contact with old friends and make new ones), when I came upon a very interesting "thread" in the FR2 area of the site. Now, I don't normally get involved in cyber conversations, but this particular one started by club member FRgirl61 really spoke to me and I ended up chiming in to the conversation.

FRgirl61 wrote,"I don't know if this has been discussed before, but how many would rather get a chance to order the FR2 Vero, as a perk in the W CLUB instead of IT having her as a lottery option? I want this girl, and much rather they make enough for the ones who want to have her, I don't care if they make a thousand or more, I just want her.
I wanted to start a poll, but could not find the link to do it. I feel silly, but I get lost in the forums at times. Anyway, maybe if we ask IT to make FR2 Vero as a pre order, they would oblige."

Several people have replied to her to varying response. I think she makes a good point. I've got to be honest, I'm not crazy about the lottery thing. It gives me alot of anxiety to know that I'm leaving it up to chance as to whether or not I'm going to be able to get something that I really want at a decent price. Let's face it, these dolls are not inexpensive to start with and once they reach the secondary market - the prices become unreal. I suggest IT continues to do the "pre-order" and let the additions be whatever "demand" is. It makes them more money and also makes all the WClub loyal fans happy. 

I'm interested in knowing if more people feel this way. If you have an opinion about this please share it with me on the blog. I'd love to know how you think and I'm sure IT would appreciate the feedback as well!

Also, if you like the my blog (which I'm thoroughly loving producing by the way) please tell your friends to join and share it on your flickr, faceBook and other social media accounts....YOUR FRIENDS ARE MY FRIENDS!
That's it for today!


  1. Hi Francis,

    I agree with your point of view. I'm not a member by choice so I know that if I want a doll I will have to wait for it to show up on Ebay........... I'm not a fan of FR2 either (oops did I just say that).... So I can pass on this Vero..... but there are so many of you who WANT let IT play their cards right and serve the need instead of creating this elusive doll that only a few will get and that will show up on Ebay for an insane asking price...(which will dissapoint so many fans)....LUV Willem

  2. Hi Willem...I'm so happy that you responded to my blog ;-) Yah!
    I'm glad that you see it from my perspective...and by the way...thank god that there are people like you that don't like the FR2 so those of us that do...CAN GET ONE! LOL!
    Hope to hear from you again soon sweetheart ;-)
