Introducing Brooke, a Starpery 148F review

Post by Babel99 »

Babel99’s honest Starpery 148F review

The doll world evolved a lot in 2022 / 2023. There is a lot of competition out there and technology is improving at an impressive speed. I thought it was time for me to get myself a new little synthetic gal.

I like my dolls in the 150 cm range, where I think you get the best balance of weight and size. I also wanted a TPE doll, which I think are better for sex from my point of view. My last two dolls were built in silicon and I wanted to feel TPE again.
So after browsing for few months, I decided to go with the Starpery 148 F, which is part of their latest doll series. As soon as I saw that doll, it was love at first sight.

I named that sexy thing Brooke …

Please note that all pictures is what you see is what you get. There are no photoshop altercation to these pictures. I did add some blurry on a single picture to hide background. So that's it. If you would walk into my home, you would see her as is.

Image


Ordering and shipping

I contacted Chris at Starpery and told him what I was looking for. He politely answered all my questions in perfect English, which was a relief. As you know, dealing with the manufacturers in China is not always that easy. But the communication with Starpery was top notch. Here was the final order:

Material: TPE with weight reduction
Head: Hedy
Skin tone: Wheat
Eyes: Green
Breast: Gel
Butt: TPE (No gel option available for TPE)
Vagina: Fixed
Body realism: Painted
Finger: Articulated
Feet: NOT standing

The order was officially completed on September 12 and I got it delivered by UPS on December 30th. The whole loop took approximately 3 and a half months, which is not fast, but reasonable. The doll showed up extremely well packaged in some kind of molding foam. Nothing can move in there. She was perfect and I mean it. Not a dent, not a scratch, not an abrasion mark, not a defect … nothing. I was extremely satisfied with the operation quality. I feel that Starpery means business and want their customers to be happy. I read that they had shipping issues in the past, but from what I see it is completely resolved here.

Image


Size and weight

One interesting thing about the 148 F is that Starpery is offering weight reduction even with TPE material. For all the doll veterans out there, as you know weight reduction was offered with silicon for a while, but practically no manufacturers offer this option with TPE. For a long time, during the molding process, the melted TPE was too hot and was melting the foam core needed for weight reduction. I do not know how Starpery did it, but they resolved the issue.

Image

Brooke is quite a busty gal and she would have been in the 90-100 pounds range with such nice assets. But with weight reduction, her weight is exactly 80.1 pounds with the head on. She is not a light doll, but it is manageable considering how busty she is.

The weight reduction can be felt in the butt area. There is approximately 1 inch of TPE over the foam core, so her ass feels firm but it has a nice slap to it. I think I would have preferred without weight reduction, but do not get me wrong, I REALLY like that ass believe me.


Hybrid TPE / Silicon

As stipulated in the introduction, I wanted the doll to be TPE. I do not want by any means to start another silicon vs TPE thread, but I do have silicon dolls and wanted that one in TPE. From my point of view, TPE dolls are better for sex while silicon dolls look better while being displayed around the house. I wanted that gorgeous 148 F to be a BANG AWAY TPE doll, which will see a lot of action 😊

Now about that TPE. That material evolved a lot in the last few years. This one does not smell anything but mostly, DOES NOT SWEAT OIL. I left Brooke laying in bed overnight and she did not leave any marks.

Image


Body Painting

Brooke came with a painted body. The bikini tan and the light veins over her body are gorgeous. By experience, I do know that paint does not stick to TPE for long, but I wanted it for the initial wow effect. I do expect the paint to disappear in the next few weeks but it is fine. If you are a newcomer, you can invest into body painting for silicon gals, but not for TPE. I did offer myself a bit of luxury here.

Image


Skeleton

Brooke skeleton feels firm and solid. I got a nice surprise while inspecting her and I will talk about it in the hand / feet section of this review.


Head

All Starpery heads are made of silicon, so I do have a hybrid doll here. I initially ordered a ROS head but did not like her look when Chris sent me the manufacturer pictures. So I asked him to send me the a standard soft silicon one instead.

The Hedy head was modeled from an angel. I do like the shape of her lips and fell in love with her sweet look. The head is soft silicon and the make-up is top notch. I was quite impressed by the work of the artists.

Image

The eyes are spring loaded cartridge, which is a nice change from the old half ball eyes.
If you are into oral, do not pick silicon NON ROS head. There is an orifice in the mouth, but silicon is too hard and there is no way I could stick my pickle in there.

Briefly, she has an astonishing face and the soft silicon is nice to kiss. But oral is not possible from my point of view.

Image


Arms and legs

Starpery did not got for the toothpick arms and legs recipe to save on the weight and I am happy that they took that decision. She has full sexy legs that will drive you nuts when wrapped around you.

Image

Image


Hands and feet

I ordered Brooke with articulated fingers. They are on the firm side and I wish that they will get a bit looser over time. It is quite difficult to bend them to the point where I become nervous to break them. I was not able to bend both pinky fingers. I know they can be bent, but the amount of force needed makes me nervous. But her fingers look nice, soft and the bones are well centered in the fingers. I cannot wait to see how articulated fingers will hold overtime compared to the old wire system.

Image

Image

The only downside of that doll is her wrist skeleton. On a human (and all my previous dolls), the clockwise/counter clockwise wrist rotation is done in the elbow. The wrist can rotate up and down regardless of the elbow rotation. On that doll, the wrist rotation is done in the wrist itself instead of the elbow. It is difficult to explain, but it greatly limits the movement range of the hand to the point where I had to cancel some basic pictures positions where I could not place the hands as planned. I see it as a major flaw on this skeleton and will talk to Chris about it.

I was pleasantly surprised to notice that the toes have little bone. I am a feet guy myself and I ordered Brooke without the standing feet. I like my doll feet to be sweet and soft and I will never ruin these with bolt ! But the bones came as a surprised and I really like the feeling of real feet. This is the nicest ones I saw on a doll so far. No floppy toes 😊They are only little bones, but this is a game changer if you ask me. You can even adjust their position.

Image

Image

Image


Breast

MY GOD … did I need to say more? Brooke has gel breast and I intend to hold these in a sport bra when she is stored away. With such nice puppies, I am pretty sure that I will not be able to get anything done around the house. They feel awesome and they are yummy as hell. It is difficult to see how nice they look from pictures, but they are stunning.

Image

Image

Image


Butt

As explained in the TPE section, Brooke has weight reduction. Therefore, her ass is firmer than a standard TPE doll. Nevertheless, the shape of the butt is to die for and there is no deformation whatsoever caused by the weight reduction, which is an issue with many dolls on the market. These little pillows are dreamish, and I cannot take my hands off these.

Image

Image

Image


Vagina and anus

Brooke has an impressive vagina with nice full lips. I really like it. They also made the orifice larger, which feels more realistic and will be more resilient to tears. The channel texture has big bumps, and it feels incredible. If you don’t smile the first time that you will penetrate her, you have no soul. She feels like paradise.

Image

Image

I just noticed that I do not have any pictures of her anus in this review. I will take a few during the next photoshoot. I have not used it yet as well, but it looks good so far. I will comment later.

What about the LHP (Love Hole Placement), which is a big deal these days. Too many dolls have ridiculous LHP and the customers started to avoid the manufacturers that did not adapt to the new trend. I am happy to report that the 148 F LHP is perfect. That little gal is a doggy queen and she has the best LHP of any dolls I ever had (she is my 6th doll).

Image

Image


Sex

I wanted a bang away TPE doll, I got one … and she delivers. The 148F is a strong doll, is well designed, is splendid and has perfect LHP. Even the larger vaginal orifice feels better than my other dolls and is easier to clean due to its size.

She was able to make my toe curl in all the classic positions, but the doggy is SOMETHING. If you did not notice, she has a meaty ass that can take quite a beating. Get ready to roll your eyes into the back of your head.

Now I do realize that I will need a good ROS head to complete the package. She would be a bedroom queen with it.

Image

Image


Constructive criticism

After my short review of the doll, here is what I think could be improved on that model.

1. First, the wrist skeleton design must be reviewed and improved. The 148 F is SUCH a nice doll, but that wrist thing will be an issue for anyone who likes taking pictures of their dolls. If it would not be of that issue, she would be a perfect 10 gal.

2. The fingers bone should not be that hard to bend. We have to remember here that, to bend the fingers, we will need to put a lot of pressure on tiny layer of TPE around the bone, which significantly raise the chance to tear the TPE. This is not a major flaw by any means, but using the fingers makes me nervous. I would have liked something easier to move.

The spring in the eyes cartridge could be lighter. Moving the eyes are a bit more difficult than other models. Since you need to put more pressure, the eyes tend to slip under your finger and roll away too far. A lighter spring would fix the issue.

The gel in the breast could be softer. It is not too hard by any means, but I felt dolls with softer gel, bringing more realism.

Image


Conclusion

The 148 F is a little gem that is waiting to be discovered. I do love everything about it. Great work guys! By looking at her, you know that Starpery did their best efforts to produce such a stunning synthetic gal.

I would say that if Starpery would fix the wrist motion, she would be an instant classic and would be the flagship oftheir new doll series.

On this, see you later folks, I do have a doll to attend too.

Good review and wonderful pictures, thank you!

I was interested in this Doll when it came out but didn't like the Zoey Head... it was the only down sized Head at the time and i was told all other Heads would look weird on it. Is this a down sized Hedy Head now or a regular sized one? Thanks for info! :D

Very good question, I really don't know. But if Chris read this he will remember for sure, they just did it few days ago.

The head fit perfectly on that body.

Since she has some heavy puppies, it is always a good idea for TPE breast filled with gel to be held together with a sport bra while stored to avoid sag or tearing between the breast.

This is a cheap fruit of the loom S size bra. You can get those for like 20$ for 3 on amazon and they are super sturdy. Not sexy ... but they hold awesomely well!.

I did not notice any limitation in the leg position or spreading at all. The head connector is the standard M16 bolt, which I like seems it is quite standard. I had a "clip on" head on another model few years back, but never really liked it since the head was disconnecting all the time by itself. The M16 bolt is perfect ...
