Well, I'm thinking that Doflamingo could have cheated world government into thinking that Moria escaped, but instead put him into safety in Dressrosa (by either capturing him or offering him and alliance) where he works in the Toy Factory. I think he is bringing to life toys, thanks to his shadow hability, in the same way he was raising zombies. Maybe using the shadows of Donquixote family rivals and offenders. Then using the shadowless victims as slave labour at the factory, to produce the weapons he sales. They are obedient because they know, that at any moment, their toy doppleganger can be killed, thus killing them.
What do you think?
I think Jola can only turn things into paintings
I think her artistic imagination just alters reality.
There's just one major flaw in your theory: The way Doflamingo reports about Moriah's escape fits too well to Absalom's ability to make one invisible. Just the same way he escaped with Nami from Usopp and Chopper in Thriller Bark.
When did moria escape?? Im pretty sure that guy is dead as anything.
Lately, all of your comments lack evidence/reasons. Why do you never support your thoughts/theories with a pillar it can stand upon? I mean reason by that.
As for Kebuenowilly's theory, here's another aspect that doesn't fit: as far as we know, "killing" one of Moria's animated puppets simply returns the shadow to its owner. There can be no such blackmail as what you suggest.
The toys could still be animated puppets or be otherwise born of a DF power, of course, but it'd be weird: we've been shown several human/toy couples living their mundane everyday lives, some of them even having toy babies and pet toys. Babies. It's not as if only rebellious people or dangerous individuals had been toyified.

The piece of information that Moria has been seen in the New World and that he is hiding + that Crocodile was able to evade the Marines searching for him was given in two supplementary pages at the end of chapter 664. The pages looked like newspaper pages and the newspaper was called "New World Times".
and create a toy sustitute to take the life of the human to mantain an appereance of normality, so Dofla don't loses his political power.
The only thing the don´t fit at all, is that the shadows should be loyal to Moria, unless it works in a different way on toys than on dead bodies.
What do you think?
MyamotoMusashi: thanks a lot; the corresponding volume (67, I think) is not out yet here, so I had completely missed this information.
Kebuenowilly: things could work the way you describe them now, however there haven't been any storytelling elements so far to support this vision. That's what I implied when I mentionned the everyday life of people: we have yet to see a hint of a possible unease of Dressrosa's human population towards the toys. Everybody seems to consider their existence perfectly normal, which would likely not be the case if people had had their close ones abducted and replaced by a toy.
If you compare with similar situations earlier in the manga, for example Skypiea, everything seemed normal in the beginning but we were quiclky given hints of the brewing trouble through Conis' behaviour, god's guards and other small events. Here, the Strawhats have already been in Dressrosa for a while but nothing indicates that the problems of this country revolve around the toys - only the fact that a place named the "toy house" is a lair of Doflamingo and may be the Smile factory, which still doesn't say a lot about the toys themselves. There is definitely something wrong with how Doflamingo came to power and what he's doing in this country, but I will be surprised if it has to do with the origin of the toys.

I gues we'll see it soon, as the action is moving to the Toy House.
