Two - almost impossible to obtain - figures in Germany
« on: November 17, 2005, 10:48:01 »


 The two figures a princess and a knight are free with two products in the Wella " Lifetex Kids" range, which can only be bought from hairdressers. Not every hairdresser has them.

Nice figs! I expect they'll reach quite high prices on eBay, especially if they are as hard to come by as you say. :(

Could you translate the promo blurb on that page for us if you have time? :-*

I also like them. They are a bit simple, but that is what make them special I think.

I like the knight (and I notice his hair is very smooth, and luxurious  :P )

I love the princess the best...beautiful blue dress and a  comb! But the prince is also quite handsome. Yes, someone is going to scoop up these and make a killing on US/UK ebay!  :-\   They are lovely.

That makes them rather more expensive than the price of a bottle of shampoo, then. :P

David,
how many hair dressers would YOU be willing to call?  ;)

I like both figures.
The female has a comb and arm puffs in a new color.
The male has new hair.

Do they have advertizing printed on their backs?

That prince is rubbish for the Knight's theme.

 To me he looks more like a Superhero figure with that V shaped collar and matching cape. Seriously take a good look at it, take of his crown remove the sword put a big letter P on his chest and he then becomes Playmo Man. The figure then wouldn't look at all out of place stood next to SuperMan or SuperTed you would think that they had the same superhero Tailor.

 I like the princess though she's not too girly and fluffy bunny looking, it's always good to get another  female figure for the knights theme because there are just not enough of them.
