TOYNAMI 2001 "Tenchi Muyo!" 1/5 Character Doll Series

it has been a full decade and a half since i bought my very first Anime-based Character Dolls,
the very same ones that had inspired me to learn how to sew, so i could make them the custom outfits i'd desired to see them wear,
a skill that has been refined through the years, and has come to serve me well indeed in keeping my ever expanding 1/5 and 1/6 Anime Harem well dressed to my personal tastes.

these are the three-doll "Tenchi Muyo!" 12in. Chara-Doll series
that the U.S. TOYNAMI corp. made for the U.S. Comic/collectors' shop market in 2001, when U.S. PIONEER ANIMATION was pushing "Tenchi Muyo!"
it's most successful Anime property in the U.S. throughout the 1990's, via the aid of CARTOON NETWORK's "TOONAMI" Anime CATV programming block,
and several small time U.S. toy companies producing merchandise, arguably the best of which being these 12in. Character Dolls
of the main protagonist and the two primary Alien women romantically interested in him.

i was very much into "Tenchi Muyo!" at the time, a budding Anime fan without internet and only the occasional trip to a comics/collectibles' shop
to satiate my growing, burning Anime passion. these dolls, at $27.99USD each at one of my favorite shops in 2001,
were something i never even knew i wanted until i stumbled upon them. the moment i did, however, i HAD to own them all.

they have not aged well, and i had retired them to storage back in 2008 or so, after finally joining the 21st century with my own Internet at home,
and finding out about the great many Japanese market Anime Dolls in 1/6 that made those old Tenchi dolls look like a proverbial Joke.

a good half-dozen years on, with a lovely covey of 1/6 Anime ladies all in an exact size parity thanks to their uniform OBITSU doll bodies,
i pulled out my old Year-One Girls (and Guy) to commemorate Fifteen entire years worth of creative Anime Doll fandom.

all three of them are wearing custom outfits;

the "Ryoko Hakubi" (Turquoise Spiky Hair)
wearing a Miko-styled costume hand-made in entirety,

the "Ayeka Jurai" ( Dark Purple Helmet-Hair)
wearing a heavily altered porcelain Victorian Doll dress,
(and quite out of scale with the other two, thanks to
a different Doll body added by me)

the "Tenchi Masaki" (The Guy, Duh)
wearing clothing aped off of a Barbie Ken doll,
save for the blue T-Shirt, hand made.

i've hung on to these goofy U.S. market Dolls for so long now, that i figured they might as well take their honored place
among the superior individuals of my modest mini-Anime Harem...
