Since the last time I received a new Sasha doll was 1985, I had a total blast of childhood nostalgia from unwrapping him.
He didn't come with a box, but he does appear to have his full original outfit (and wrist tag), and seems to have been primarily a display doll. His condition isn't quite perfect - he was displayed on a waist-stand, and as a result his knit top is stretched where the hooks sat, and there's a thin indentation in the vinyl on his torso, but aside from that I'd say he's actually in better condition than I expected.
And honestly, even if he'd been in worse condition I would probably have been just as excited (my sister and I were just reminiscing about how sad we were the year the Sashas stopped appearing the Pastorini Spielzeug's catalogues back in the '80s, so I was clearly in the mood for this arrival).
