I need to ask

Do you collect other toys besides Transformers? Maybe you've got a Masters of the Universe collection you'd like to show off, or maybe you like Thundercats, Voltron, G.I.Joe, Power Rangers, Star Wars, Wrestling, or any of the various comic book toy lines. Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

I believe they're called Golly dolls, now.

But I had no idea about them being sold in big numbers at the moment.
This is the most recent piece of news about them, and I had to dig for it.
