Raurencio Studio has posted a notice regarding the recent release of new doll series The Story of Vampire. The dolls were based on Twilight actors.  They were released March 10 but have now been removed from the website.

From the artist:

I’m Racius, the doll sculptor of Raurencio Studio.

I’m very sorry to have worried you.

Raurencio is a very small doll studio in Korea. Raurencio is a small
atelier where people likes dolls are gathered together, not many people
work in like other doll companies.

The motive for making the new dolls was not to sell them but to show the
skills of our company whose popularity is very low.

So we made the new dolls based on movie stars known by everyone.
Actually we know another company already made these characters. But we
just wanted to show you more realistic and high quality sculpts.

We think we can make a good sculpture better than any other doll
designer. But few people love our dolls and we can’t sell a lot of our
dolls unlike other famous companies.(honestly, we can’t make a living by
selling dolls. But we’ve made dolls at our own expense because we just
like making dolls. We’ve been making dolls as it is our pleasure to show
you dolls we made.)

We’ve done a lot of thinking about the license.

But it is very difficult for a small company like us to get a license
from famous Hollywood stars in Korea.

We just wanted to make art as fans of the stars. It is allowed to some
extent in Korea to make derivative works of famous stars, books, etc.

We didn’t know how important it is to get permission from the copyright
owners in the US and our ignorance caused lots of disputes and your
disappointments.

We’ll make every effort to get permission. The copyright owners may give
us the license if the new dolls become a big issue.

We apologize again for worrying about the license.

If we can’t get the license, we will not sell the new dolls.

We hope you see our dolls as art works to show our skill.

We’ve made dolls thinking them as art works, and it is why we don’t use
computer 3D and stick to making dolls by hand. And we think this way of
working made us have originality. But in this time we lose our
originality and it made you disappointed, though our intention is just
to show our skill.

We promise to make more creative and original dolls in future.

We’d be grateful if you watch us with warm eyes.

We’ll always do our best not to disappoint you again.

Please give your warm affection to us working hard because of love of
dolls despite a poor environment.

We beg you. Please see our dolls as art works.
