So I ordered my first non-DOD doll which was also my first Tiny from Angelheim back in March. It was part of this special deal with some nice cool eyes and a discount price. And the doll was damn cool! So I totally gave in and got him on layaway. And things were going fine...until the company suddenly stopped replying to people and stopped saying anything at all. For 2 months. Then they came back for a bit, saying they had changed owners and things were a bit chaotic but they'd get the ball rolling soon again and we were all relieved. ...only for them to then AGAIN disappear for another 2 months and no sign of any orders being sent out.

After a lot of strife and anxious waiting...we finally find out that the company went under but another company, D-Storic, would be picking up their line and continuing with those orders who didn't want to cancel. I decided not to cancel it as I still really wanted the doll. And actually glad I decided that because while it was a REALLY long wait in the end...turns out they are no longer offering the doll in the skin color I got him in and they don't seem to have the outfit listed either. Sooooo I guess my doll is actually a limited now. REALLY limited 'cause there were, at most, 8 of them ordered. Possibly less since there were 10 AngelHeim orders posted on D-Storic's site that were sent out (they post them publically) but I know at least 2 of those were not Jins. No idea on the rest. And no idea how many of the Jins were grey and how many in the other skin colors. SO THERE MAY BE LESS THAN 8 OF THESE IN THE WORLD. Not only that but I'm the ONLY one in the USA who ordered a Jin at all. So I'm currently the ONLY American with a Jin. ...kinda cool. XD

In the end, it took 6 months and 2 weeks for me to get this doll. I've never been this anxious about an order coming in like I was with this one, due to the long wait. So I had been watching tracking like a hawk and we happened to be having a yard sale today so I was already on my driveway, waiting for sign of the mail person. And as soon as I saw them come down the street, I ran down my driveway to greet them. XD The lady laughed pretty hard at this, being all "guess you were expecting this huh?" as she handed the box over. But anyways...


So...pretty boring box. Was kinda dismayed to see the D-Storic logo instead of AngelHeim just 'cause it reminds me that AngelHeim really doesn't exist anymore.


Box contents~ All nicely packaged at least. This was my first time getting an actual certificate with the doll so that was nice. Since DOD doesn't do that for theirs.


The Mako Eyes that were part of the deal I got when I ordered so glad they still made sure to include those. I really love the color so they're definitely going to stay! And I'm glad I had already seen Selidor's box opening of his Jin before this so I already knew he didn't come with the eyes IN the doll. XD As that may have freaked me out. I've only ever had dolls who's eyes were already in their heads (unless it was a blank head but that's not as freaking). Though they didn't give me any eye putty so I had to improvise with some sculpe I had laying around for now.


There he is~ Took me a while to get the eyes in though as I'm not used to such a small size. XD (He's my first Tiny) And oh man I love the face-up!


Looking a bit happier with his wig on now.


Photo taken with flash so you can see the eye color better.


Dragon parts! They have REALLY strong magnets in them so I had to place them rather far apart here so they'd stop magnetizing to each other. XD


His staff/weapon/thingy and the gripping hand. Only complaint I have here is that the paint has already started to chip off where the staff part slides into the blade. Most of it is covered up by the dragon tail but some still shows. So guess I'll have to repaint it.


The outfit. Which is really detailed and kinda amazing! I also thought the way they packaged the necklace was super cute.

Ok, then I had to restring the legs. Which I wasn't looking forward to as I hate restringing and every time I've restrung my DODs...its been hell. And his arms seem really tight since they keep going in odd directions so I was worried the legs would be the same. But to my surprise, his legs were REALLY easy to restring. But I think its 'cause the let strings are really loose. Had a hard time standing him later on so might have to tighten them up which may make it harder. But seriously...after hearing so many horror stories of friends restringing their Tinies...this was really really easy in comparison.


Yay dragon legs! XD I have no real intention of using the human legs on him so he'll have these on almost all the time anyways. Though does limit him in what he can wear.


And fully assembled! The wings and horns are all magnetized so they're super easy to put on and you can adjust them which I find pretty cool.


Looks like I might have another Diva in the house...XD


The downside about the weapon is the staff part is made of metal and thus pretty heavy. So he can't hold it very well. Even with the grip hand, it slides out pretty easily. But hey it still looks cool!


And for size comparison, here he is next to Lucian. He's about half the size of a MSD. XD


And here he is next to Lucifer just for the lulz. Course doesn't help that Luci is wearing his big boots of doom.


He comes up to about Luci's knee. lol


There is a design flaw to this outfit though. It only has one snap to keep it closed (where my thumb is) in the back. Which means...he shows his butt a lot. XDXD So I may have to get him some tiny underwear or something. lol


I was amused to see that he's perfect size for some Barbie stuff. XD Though don't think he'd be too fond of all that pink.


Ah, it must be good to be a Tiny. XD


And what do you want for Christmas, little dragon boy? XD And yes it makes no sense that Lucifer is in his Angel gear but I'm too lazy to change him right now.

So his name is Jasper. I was too tired to do a photostory yet with him but eventually there will be. Not exactly sure what I'm doing with him yet in the story but I got a few ideas. But he's not going to have a big role. I'm planning to do more of his own little solo adventures mostly due to his size but he will be hanging out with the demons off and on.

Anyways, here's some better photos of him...


I was so excited when I realized I finally have a doll that fits this chair. XD I got it from JoAnn's years ago but my DOCs' legs are too long to fit in it so I gave up on trying to use it with them. Its a little big for him (his legs dangle) but hey it works! XD Though it is a bit hard to fit his wings in.


But its a good thing I have this chair because he does not sit well at all with his dragon legs on. And he can't really lean up against something with his wings on. So I guess if I ever take him to a doll meet, he's either gotta stand the whole time or I'll need to take this chair with me.

love love love this little guy! I think he was definitely worth the wait. He does seem like a little diva from these pictures but the camera seems to love him. I am anxious to see his eventual entry into the story!

Glad you like him! And yeah, I'm so glad he turned out to be worth it. I was so afraid that I'd be like "meh" by the time he finally turned up but even seeing him blank from the two who got theirs before mine, I knew I loved the mold. Its that little smirk of his that does me in. XD
