This Spectra utilizes the "old" facemold. No one will be surprised to learn that I'm very pleased by this.
On Legacy Day Raven this outfit comes across as costume-y, very much a "doll dress". But on Spectra it reads as fun and funky with a metal edge.
At this point it seems you never know what facemold you're gonna get on Spectra. Mattel keeps going back and forth on which one they use depending on the doll. Can they just not make up their mind?
Not that I'm complaining. Only occasionally getting the original mold is better than not getting it at all. (Sidenote: Spectra looks like such a badass in this outfit!)
Dead Tired Spectra's hair is still smooth and shiny like we're used to with her, but the texture itself is somewhat brittle. It's also rooted a bit thinly. That said, this is Spectra we're talking about! Her hair, even when not in excellent condition, is still better than about 90% of other dolls' hair. If you prefer the original facemold and have plenty of clothes to change her into (her nightgown is cute but not what most want on their fashion doll) you can't go wrong with DT Spectra! And since she's a budget doll the price is right, too.
In the meantime I'm wondering what the deal is with these transmissions...
