Despite their name, they produce collectible figures rather than toys - mostly human characters, especially from Lord of the Rings universum.

They also produced two horses:

The White Horse (unoficially Shadowfax):

The Brown Horse (unoficially Brego):

I got the latter.

Really short review - it has it's quality issues, especially for the price it's sold for. Hind legs have different proportions each (!), and both are crooked, so it's tricky to position him with all four hooves touching ground. Also the seam on the back is splitting slightly on the withers area. And the tack is really crappy - the saddle was glued (!) to the back - I threw it away as soon as I got it off.

Other than that, I'm pretty happy with him, finally my dolls have a horse in decent size! I'm going to make him some more decent tack eventually.

Some photos:

It's Barbie's friend from a recent line called "Made to Move" or "Endless Moves" - they have the best posable bodies ever Very Happy

These are really cool! I had some Obitsu dolls, but I sold them because they where just to fragile and all. Still, some deep hidden part of me likes to have a posable doll to photograph and to make things for XD

I've never had any Obitsu, but I can tell these Barbies feel really sturdy :) I'm planning to swap bodies for all my Barbies for these (apart from the darkest ones, there's no matching shade, hopefully yet!) XD

Thanks for the info Very Happy Glad they are sturdy! Very Happy Obitsu dolls are made of a fragile plastic (not resin like the BJD) that isn't really fun to pose XD I think they will make more of these, because this is really good and every girl want to have a posable barbie right? :3 Laughing
