New releases December 2016: Pullip Katrina and Taeyang ReonHARDT

It’s that time of the month again: new doll announcements! While Groove has not officially announced them yet, both dolls are already available on

Pullip Katrina

p193detailLet’s start with the Pullip. Pullip Katrina is a classy girl! With her large hat and fur coat, she is wearing a very stylish outfit. Underneath her coat she’s wearing a long purple gown, which of course can be worn seperately. Her long dark blonde hair really stands out. Her faceup and eyechips remind us of some older dolls from the Type 3 era, which is a nice break with the more cute girls we’ve seen the past few years. It also looks like her skin tone is tan, a color not seen on regular releases often.

Pullip Katrina looks more mature than most other Pullip releases, thank to her outfit and faceup. She’s really quite different from what we have seen so far. We just really hope the coat is made from fake fur, as Groove has been doing so well with not using real fur for years now.

Taeyang ReonHARDT

t259detailWell, that’s one funky name for sure and for someother reason it reminds us of Taeyangfold. Taeyang ReonHARDT is a companion to Katrina and like her, he is dressed very stylishly. He is wearing a brown suit with stripes, giving him a very mature look. Underneath his suit he wears a dark brown gilet with a flower pattern on the fabric. He is wearing a light blue shirt, but it is a bit hard to tell from the photos if this can be worn seperately from the gilet. It probably can, but we can’t tell for sure.

He also has a more traditional faceup with very dark eyes and red lips. His grey wig is styled in a traditional men’s hairdo, completing his overall look. It’s good to see a Taeyang that is wearing a more normal outfit, compared to the steampunk and fantasy designs we’ve seen the past few years.
