What if Fangelica is related to Elissabat? :D Just a thought~

Her description says that she's Draculaura's sister.  Unless that description is incorrect or it changes later.

I've seen whispers of both Howleen and Clawd. Howleen pictured on some reboot promo material, and promo drawings for a a Clawd wearing just shorts, in a swimline that had Howleen too. I can't remember if my favorite weresister, Clawdia, was in that swimline. I know Clawdeen and I think maybe one other person were wearing impractical swimsuits that wouldn't let them "jump off a tire swing into the water" like Clawd was shown doing.... (Howeleen had a good one) but I'm worried it was just Clawdeen and not Clawdia. Can't remember for sure, as the outfits underwhemed overall.

What I'm really afraid of is non-articulation on these new dolls (this seems to be something toy manufacturers think is increasingly ok to get away with when the dolls are smaller for some reason. Meanwhile, the MH Megabloks have incedible knee articulaton...), as well as lack of outfit detail, paint detail, and stands.  I have no use for a bunch more small budget dolls like the EAH pixies.

Are you talking about this?

If so, that's not a reboot pic; it's from one of the Monster High Collection magazine/booklet things and predates the reboot.

....oh....yup. Too bad it predates the reboot. I guess this swim line never got made?

In that case, I've seen a whisper of HOWLEEN only as her doll was shown talking to twyla's doll in a locker room scene featuring reboot dolls

 :cry: Clawdia!

I don't think it was ever intended to be made; the MH collection magazines had a lot of art of chars in different outfits like that (to go along with a little story), heh.

FWIW, Clawdeen's swimsuit is from her Skull Shores doll (minus the beach wrap/cover-up on top) and Howleen's outfit seems to have been based off Clawdeen's Gloom Beach outfit. :B so they weren't entirely made up just for the pic, heh.

Yep.  There were even images of Skelita with her brother and abuelita, and I sincerely doubt that they ever intended on making a tween skeleton boy and a plus-sized skeleton grandma.... though I would've bought both in a heartbeat. ;)

Smaller dolls were never articulated tho. It's not like with the regular dolls where they were all fully articulated and then suddenly started releasing dolls with static joints.

The mega block figs do have articulated knees but they also come apart so there isn't as much risk of snappage. While definitely possible tiny doll joints are usually fragile and fiddly.

I wanted family sets, but not like this.  Unless they do an SDCC set, I guess I'll never see a Cleo, Nefera, and Ramses 3 pack.

I feel like Mattel is making stuff up as they go along.  From what I saw in the movie, Draculaura didn't have any siblings.  Unless they decided to have her suddenly appear, like she is an older sister who was away at school or traveling the world or something.  Honestly, I do have a few dolls from this line, and I did buy the movie but I'm not feeling this line like I did the original line.  I recently moved and once my dolls were out of storage, plus the new ones I bought which were from the original like I didn't have room on my bureau for the new ones.  It's the biggest bureau I have and to be honest I'm not 100% upset over it.

I don't know how they're going to explain a new sister, who, up until now, has been entirely absent in person and mention in all MH canon. I mean, surely they would have introduced her before or at least hinted at her existence, but you can't just add in such a close relation without explanation. Cousins, maybe, and Viperine succeeded in that regard. But sisters? Unless there's an adoption/conversion thing going on here, I don't think they can pull it off.

They did already pull it off with Cerise and Ramona though.

I really hope we get something that has Dracula going "Hey, I found another dying girl and turned her into a vampire - you have a sister now."

I'd like to say how much Fangelica's name bugs me. It's a very sloppy pun, as either pronunciation loses one aspect of the wordplay. It's either FAN-jelica which makes it sound like she's an enthusiast, or FANG-elica, which no longer sounds like an existing name.

A human girl got too close to Monster High, things escalated quickly and..

That picture is so cute! I love Howleen, so adorable.

Anyway, I'm curious to see this line, but it's just not really sparking my interest. Presumably non-articulated child/tween monsters? No mention of the canon Wolf siblings that I love and miss... I'm just not feeling it. Come on Mattel, surprise me with this one!

I wonder if Cleo is going to get a doll in this line. We still have those Pharrah and Lux De Nile trademarks to fill.

It would be cute if they were like little "sisters" only in the sense of a mentor-type thing, as opposed to like actual relatives. I can see that working with Draculaura since neither she nor her sister have last names.

Trying to stay hopeful about these, but I can't say I've been too impressed with most of the recent releases of late. The idea of family dolls/little siblings is adorable and welcome, but it'll all come down to the execution.

(Giving Draculaura's little sister bat wings and ears is weird to me, since Draculaura originally struggled so hard with her bat transformation... but... I guess that whole canon has been nixed in this continuity anyway...)
