    Merida is one of my favorite princesses and I hold out hope she'll be featured and especially when her anniversary year comes around.
    Briar looks good but if that's the platinum set it dosesn't look like being worth the asking price. Am waiting to see what they offer for Tiana, if anything. Am a bit worried she might be slighted in lieu of Ariel? Basically, give her an LE doll and one nondoll item for mech and call it done.

    Does anyone have any information on a USA release for the Aurora LE sets? Because I'm starting to think this is a European-only release. Shouldn't we have had news about it by now?

    I’m so nervous about Briar Rose! The last time I purchased a limited edition doll they were still selling tsum tsums! I’ve also moved so I know longer have a nearby Disney store....

    Do y’all still post links here?

    Yeah, thank goodness. Saved me from having to buy her on eBay.

    God, same. More for the Platinum than Rose since that will be the online nightmare, but this whole release is stressing me out. ESPECIALLY when there's no USA news!

    Out of curiosity, any news if Ariel is getting a LE doll or any anniversary merchandise? I'd be shocked if they pass her by completely considering how popular she is.

    I'm pretty Ariel's anniversary merchandise is coming out in the summer.

    That makes me feel better because I was afraid I’d have to scramble for money.

    God, I forgot it's D23 year. How chaotic are we expecting this to get?

    I’ve heard a lot of speculation about Ariel especially since it’s the 30th anniversary... there are also rumors of princess and the frog but everyone is doubtful.

    Last D23, Snow White had 2 D23 exclusive dolls (Snow & Old Hag)....then she had three DS dolls (rags, Evil Queen, Prince)....so, if they follow that trend (although we already have Ursula and Prince Eric, so maybe there will be a Vanessa?)...maybe 5 dolls?

    OK good, you got the pictures. They were also on a Disney Dolls page (not group) that I shared on the DPF FB site...

    So, what do you think of the two dolls?

    The 17” Briar Rose (Aurora) Doll is a must for our collection, but we will be passing on the platinum.

    Since you made the mistake of asking ... :D

    Philip should slay whoever designed him; they've done him wrong. And bridal Aurora ... something is off about her face in that close-up photo. She looks like Woody from Toy Story. Look at her eyes. Look. Tell me you don't see it. I know she has the "vacant stare" look when she approaches the spinning wheel, but she's marrying Philip; she shouldn't be so glazed. Unless she's looking at doll-Philip and thinking, Woof, I'd rather go back to sleep, so the fairies had to enchant her into getting hitched. IDK. I'm not usually one to poop on other people's parades, but that platinum set is not flawless for the price-tag we all know it will have. (I really am a buzzkill lately. Yeesh.)

    Couldn't agree more. (The earlier LE doll came with a sword... but this time they didn't give him one. I wonder why?) I hoped when I saw the first pictures a few weeks ago that it's just the picture and that picture is not that big but... he is very disappointing in my opinion :( (And I actually liked the original LE Philip doll, despite his serious face)
    Briar Rose seems like a nicely done doll to me.

    I think that's the worst part/what I don't understand. They had a decent Philip doll. They really just had to change his clothes for this set. But they did other stuff to him and now he looks weird. The male dolls are harder to make attractive, yes, but you're right, original Philip was not bad at all. Oh well ...

    Great, we finally have dates for the US! Now I have a full month to stress out over it, lol. Just as well, I guess, with one of my cats having just been diagnosed with kidney failure. Got enough to stress over at the moment.

    And it still bugs me that they've labeled Briar Rose as 'Aurora.' Anyone else cringing at that?

    Wow the Briar Rose doll is absolutely stunning. Much more beautiful than the original LE dolls from a few years ago. Do y’all think they will release Cinderella in her maid outfit or pink gown next year for her anniversary? I’m hoping they do the maid outfit so she’ll match Snow White in her rags and now Briar Rose. I’d love to own all three in their commoner outfits.

    Both are a hard pass for me. Phillip looks meh and Aurora is glazed, pink, and neither outfit is detailed enough for the price tag it'll have.

    'Aurora' Briar Rose is... her face is nice? The top half of her outfit is too plain and the apparently asymmetrical skirt bothers me. I'll stick with my blue Aurora.

    It's a shame, I love Sleeping Beauty, but neither of these does it for me.
