Not that any of her caps are easy to find but Franks seem to be the most common, widdle traded for two and I have another one on the way.

That being said, you can still find Retros with a bit of work/luck. Over my winter break I was able to trade for this, an orange Frank, and a trans red Sharpei (pics will be posted when they arrive).

Not sure if she'll be making any of the old sculpts though.

I know there is, I've seen a frank and sharpei in the same colorway in one of retrochicks Reddit posts, I think there's only one of each, however. Not sure on the last part though.

I really hope more Sharpeis get made, it seems like retro made maybe 10-15 but I'm not sure how many were usable.

Thanks! My goal right now is finding more Sharpeis, I guess there was a higher failure rate for them so they could be a bit harder to find.

While searching I've found out that Sharpeis are even rarer than I initially thought, it's one of the rarest sculpts I'm aware of right now.

Franks are my favorite caps but sharpeis are the hardest to find I agree.
