Collecting majorities?
« on: January 01, 2017, 11:05:30 AM »
What are you "mosts" in your collection, the patterns or trends that emerge to show what you go for?

Most of one character:
Since I don't have three of any character yet, it's a tie for several characters with two each. If I actually had any of them from my wishlist, my collection would probably be mostly Frankie and Draculaura, though.
Frankie, with three- Gloom Beach, Original Favorites, and Freak du Chic.

Most from any line:
I've collected the most from BYBY, with Elle, Luna, Mouscedes, and Cleo and Deuce, and Freak du Chic, with Gooliope, Twyla, Honey, Toralei, and Frankie.

Most multiple copies of one doll?
So far, I've only gotten two of one character, Kala Mer'ri, because the first one broke.

Most of a release format? (Standard, slim-box, multipack, etc.)
Probably standard and slim-box, as I tend to collect signature characters and, when not available or preferred, I go for the best economy version.

Most of any kind of touch-up work/customizing?
Hair, 99% of the time, and the extent of my customizing comes down to accessory redistribution and occasionally paint removal for features I don't like.

Most bought in one day?
My foray into MH consisted of sig Amanita, FCA Operetta, and Kala, and I don't think I've ever gotten three or more MH products on the same day since.

Most of One Character
Rochelle, I believe.  I have her basic, Swim Class, Scaris, Zombie Shake, Love in Scaris, Shriek Wrecked, Ghouls Night Out, Dance Class and Freak du Chic.  Am only missing Haunted and Ghoul Chat.

Most from Any Line
I would guess Freak du Chic, I have everyone but a NIB Jinafire, Frankie, and Gooliope, though the big ol' goo is coming in the mail.

Most Multiple Copies of One Doll
Dance Class Rochelle, I have three of, two loose and one in box.

Most of a Release Format
The bigger boxes.  I have more budgets than I thought, but most of the ones I like are not budgets.

Most Touch Up
98% of my dolls are in box, I have a few loose that I'd like to eventually part with except ones like Rochelle that come in multipacks, but I had gotten a Dead Tired Ghoulia from someone, her outfit was stained and her hair had come loose, but it was so wavy and full that I re-dressed her in Operetta's fashion pack top, Picture Day Spectra's black skirt, and Scaris Draculaura's shoes.

Most Bought in One Day
I guess this one is Christmas shopping, our dad likes to buy in one big batch and puts up for Christmas.  About two years ago, he wound up with about twenty between the two of us.  Me personally, I think the most I bought in one day was 5, during Black Friday when Scaris/Ghouls Night Out/13 Wishes was $5 each.  They were the only five I saw, otherwise it would have been more.
Sing with me a song of conquest and fate
The black pillar cracks beneath its weight
Night breaks through the day, hard as a stone
Lost in thoughts all alone

Most of one character:
Abbey, hands down. 20 if we're including minis and my plush of her (not including baits), and 15 if we're just including the regular Monster High dolls.

Most from any line:
Probably Sigs (Abbeyx2, Cleo, Honey, Cupid) or I <3 Fashion (Scarah, Abbeyx3, Iris, Wydowna).

Most multiple copies of one doll?
I <3 Fashion Abbey. I have three so I could display all of her outfits.

Most of a release format? (Standard, slim-box, multipack, etc.)
Probably standard? I buy mostly secondhand, so I don't pay much attention to that.

Most of any kind of touch-up work/customizing?
Hair and repainting. Hair slightly more than repainting, but only because I almost never repaint without rerooting, but I occasionally reroot without repainting.

Most bought in one day?
Uhhhh. I honestly can't remember. Probably no more than two or three in a day, unless we're counting lots off eBay, in which case it's around 15 probably.

Most of one character:
Skelita.  My entire collection consists of every Skelita release and every 17" doll... and that's it. lol

Most from any line:
Frightfully Tall Ghouls. 

Most of any kind of touch-up work/customizing?
I customize all of my FTGs.  Even if it's just new lipstick or a haircut, they all get customized in some way.

Most of one character:
Frankie by a long shot, she's currently at 10 dolls and I'm only missing 2 of her wave 1 minis plus I've been debating her vinyl figurine.
Most from any line:
Probably Picture Day, I have Frankie, Draculaura, and Lagoona but I've also heavily considered the rest. Frights, Camera, Action if you're counting sigs as part of the line (all four hauntlywood ghouls), or just sigs in general.
Most multiple copies of one doll?
I don't do repeats very often but I currently have 2 of beast pet frankie. The second one is for a potential body swap.
Most of a release format? (Standard, slim-box, multipack, etc.)
Standard and slim box are on about equal footing.
Most of any kind of touch-up work/customizing?
Hair and accessory painting
Most bought in one day?
Around when I first started collecting I'd sometimes walk out with three dolls at a time. More recently I tend to buy in bulk on amazon for free shipping :P

Most of one character:
Clawdeen, I think.

Most from any line:
Sweet Screams

Most multiple copies of one doll?
That's more on the EAH side of things, really. I bought multiples of sigs to change up.

Most of a release format? (Standard, slim-box, multipack, etc.)
Who could remember at this point lmao

Most of any kind of touch-up work/customizing?
Again, the EAH side...painting, hair doing, and basically revamping a sig Duchess.

Most bought in one day?
No more than two dolls, and they'd have to be on sale.
Hairdorable for trade, ask me.[/size]

Most of one character:
Mm I think Draculaura, with Frankie coming in second. I have a small collection right now, so I have about three Draculauras and two Frankies :P

Most from any line:
Just the Original Favorites 6-Pack (not the Signatures) :P I got all the 6 pack because despite not being Signatures, I DID want at least one doll resembling their everyday outfit!

Most multiple copies of one doll?
None so far, although I did have a dream of having two of the same 6-Pack Clawdeen LOL

Most of a release format? (Standard, slim-box, multipack, etc.)
Standard - any box with pretty art I keep :P

Most of any kind of touch-up work/customizing?
None yet. I have plans for making a custom doll from a Shriekwrecked Catrine De Mew in the future and it'll be hair + face up + new clothes :P

Most bought in one day?
I think it was a TRU sale of Monster High and I got a few MH minis and a few slim-box dolls :P

Most of one character:
Rochelle (12), Venus and Toralei (11), and Draculaura (10); I never expected to have that many Draculauras, actually. I also have a tonne of the other werecat characters, but they're all individually not that close to those four listed above.

Most from any line:
Well, not every line had as many releases as some of the others, so that's tricky. A lot of lines, I have "all" of the dolls, but there were only four? haha

But I suppose BYBY (Gala Ghoulfriends, Out-of-Tombers 3Pack and Frightseer Oppie, City Ghouls, City Schemers, and Astra), which is a total of 13 dolls. The only dolls I skipped were the Deuce and Cleo 2Pack and the individual releases of the Frightseers dolls, barring Operetta, because I got the Out-of-Tombers pack. I've also collected all of the Monster Exchange and Brand-Boo Students releases, a couple of which I doubled-up on to make custom versions. And Freak du Chic. I have all of the ghouls, plus a spare Twyla and Toralei.

Most multiple copies of one doll?
I have three of Honey Swamp's original doll. One stayed in standard stock, one got her hair restyled, and the third is going to be reworked as a custom. I also have doubles of several other dolls that became customs.

Most of a release format? (Standard, slim-box, multipack, etc.)
I generally go for the "deluxe" or standard dolls, but I have quite a few of the slim-box dolls as well. They tend to go on sale more often. As for multi-packs, they often are too hard to find in Australia, so I haven't bought many (Student Disembody Council, BYBY Out-of-Tombers and City Ghouls, The Werecat Cheerleaders, Ghoulebrities in Londoom, Scream & Sugar...).

Most of any kind of touch-up work/customizing?
Quite a bit. I de-glue hair and fix hairstyles, I repaint accessories, and I have finished three face-ups at this point, with plans for quite a few more custom dolls and repaints. I also sometimes "edit" the outfits they come with. One version of Sig Honey's dress has had the fur trim removed for a cleaner look.

Most bought in one day?
Ah. That ... I couldn't say. I buy the most when I visit family in the States because prices are so much better there than here, and bringing them back in a suitcase is cheaper than shipping. lol

But probably nearly a dozen, when I hit up a big Target sale one year.

Most of one character:
Skelita. I have two Scaris, and one Scarnival, Scaritage and Art Class.

Most from any line:
BYBY, I guess, since it's pretty much the only line here that was plentiful enough to go on clearance.

Most multiple copies of one doll?
Two of Scaris Skelita.

Most of a release format? (Standard, slim-box, multipack, etc.)
So many of my dolls are second-hand, I have no idea.

Most of any kind of touch-up work/customizing?
Repainting accessories and some hair restyling.

Most bought in one day?
My first MH buy was a 5-pack and two individual dolls, so that'd be it!

Most of one character:

Clawdeen. Just realized I have four of her! Ironically I don't like her much at all. Just a very small selection of her dolls I actually do like.
 I turned my FDC into a new character because she's different enough.
Most other characters I have 2-3 of it seems, unless they were one offs. Emphasis on "most" cause I still do have a lot of single stragglers.

Most from any line:

I think Freak du Chic! I have all of them except for Rochelle, but I still want her. If I got her, it'd be my frist completed line.
But for almost every other line, I have all the sigs. Almost. I'm very very close. Only missing a few of the originals, and about 5 other characters I don't like. I have at least one of every character except about 5, lol.

Most multiple copies of one doll?

Don't have any multiples of one doll!

Most of a release format? (Standard, slim-box, multipack, etc.)

Standard, slimbox second.

Most of any kind of touch-up work/customizing?

Accessory detail painting. I've only ever messed with a doll's physical features once.
Unless redresses count. I have a handful of redresses.

Most bought in one day?
 
Probably two? I don't think I've ever done more than that, but I've definitely bought two in a day several times. Infact my first two MH purchases were me buying two dolls at once, one week after the other. So by two weeks I had four dolls.

Most of one character:
Skelita. I have her four "normal" releases and a ton of repeats of her sig. Robecca is a close second having multiple sigs and Art and Dance Class. I'm also surprised to have several Frankies.

Most from any line:
Freaky Fusion. I have the 4 Hybrids, the 4 fusions, Frankie Fusion Inspired, the Frankie from the playset and Save Frankie Jackson(two of them.. two Neighthans too)

Most multiple copies of one doll?
Scaris Skelita, hands down.

Most of a release format? (Standard, slim-box, multipack, etc.)
Most of my dolls are second hands so I have no idea. From the store, I have bought the big boxed ones(Deluxe?)

Most of any kind of touch-up work/customizing?
Redress and fixing hair.

Most bought in one day?
5 when I get multi packs. Even in flea markets I don't think I have broke the five dolls mark.

Most of one character:
Draculaura, I think I have 5? I told myself I was only going to have 1 doll per character but that's not happening lol.

Most from any line:
Freak du Chic and BYBY, I have 5 of each. IMO FdC looks even cooler with more than one from the line.

Most multiple copies of one doll?
None.

Most of a release format? (Standard, slim-box, multipack, etc.)
Probably standard? I'm not sure, most of my dolls I don't buy new.

Most of any kind of touch-up work/customizing?
Face-ups, or just removing much of the plastic-y bits if that counts.

Most bought in one day?
5 pack if that counts as 5, but otherwise I think just 3.

As a new collector I've found all of these posts very interesting!  It's fun to read about other people's collections at this macro level.

Most of one character:
Only one of each character so far. But a second Twyla and a second Clawdeen are on the agenda for this year.

Most from any line:
I have all four Zombie Shake dolls. Otherwise, I have three Haunted and three Sweet Screams.

Most multiple copies of one doll?
I have no actual doll duplicates, but if I found another Scarnival Skelita I would be very tempted!

Most of a release format? (Standard, slim-box, multipack, etc.)
Standard. 

Most of any kind of touch-up work/customizing?
I've done one boil wash but that's it. That was pretty terrifying, but it worked out.

Most bought in one day?
I've bought two dolls together a few times.

Most from any line:
I have all of Freak Du Chic, Great Scarrier Reef, Sweet Screams and Gloom n Bloom lines. I almost have all of Shriekwrecked, missing only Gooliope because I haven't seen her here yet.

Most multiple copies of one doll?

As mentioned above, two Sig Cleos

Most of a release format? (Standard, slim-box, multipack, etc.)
Standard

Most of one character: Draculaura, I have 4 of them and she was my first MH doll.

Most from any line: I really love Boo York, so I ended up with Nefera, Operetta, Luna, Mouscedes and Elle.

Most multiple copies of one doll?
None, I was considering pre-ordering 2 Zomby Gagaís so I could display them in both outfits. I changed my mind when I saw her price here in Europe.

Most of a release format?
(Standard, slim-box, multipack, etc.)
I donít keep track of this, Itís probably standard.

Most of any kind of touch-up work/customizing?
Scaris Skelita needed a touch-up of her eye screening, she now has a shimmery and slightly darker shade of eyeshadow. I couldnít resist painting Cleoleiís mummy wrapping gold.

Most bought in one day?
The after Christmas sale on Germanyís Amazon was pretty good a year ago and I ended up with 5 dolls in one order.

Most of one character:
Frankie and Ghoulia are tied with 4 each (makes sense as their sig dolls are the first ones I bought)

Most from any line:
Sweet 1600 and Freaky Fusion are tied with 5 each; all from Sweet 1600 and Neighthan, Bonita, Sirena, Avea and Ghoulia dressed as Draculaura from FF.

Most multiple copies of one doll?
2 of Avea (ones to be customized) and 2 boy CAM vamps

Most of a release format? (Standard, slim-box, multipack, etc.)
Def. standard!

Most of any kind of touch-up work/customizing?
Mostly just brushing out hair. Cupid has hair slightly restyled and her lips painted. I have a loooong list of things that need to be done to other dolls though (this is the year I fix that!)

Most bought in one day?
The most ever was a 20 dolls loose lot. I don't think I've ever bought more than two at any given time brand new.
Where oh where has my Ghoulia gone? Oh where oh where could she be? (Seriously Mattel, where is she??!!)

Most of one character:
Rochelle. I think I have 2 of every Rochelle besides Haunted, Shriek Wrecked, and Freak du Chic (only one of each of those).

Most from any line:
None really, I guess Signature/First Releases... Like I have all the new girls for Frights, Camera, Action but I only have Cleo from the Black Carpet line.

Most multiple copies of one doll?
Witch CaM, I have 3 completed ones and one that's missing several limbs from when my 4-year-old dog was a puppy and partially chewed her up.
For EAH, I think I may be up to 10 Signature Hollys though... I cannot get enough of that doll, lol.

Most of a release format? (Standard, slim-box, multipack, etc.)
Standard.

Most of any kind of touch-up work/customizing?
I guess hair, trims and restyles... a few reroots (I haven't completed any myself). I generally don't do anything to change the faceups because I don't buy them unless I like their faceup.

Most bought in one day?
I have no idea... I know I've definitely bought 10-ish in a day on a few occasions but that was a combination of MH, EAH, and Barbie. I guess the day I bought two "We Are Monster High" Student Disembody Council 5-pack sets (one for me and one for ebmerc) on clearance would count as 10 MH dolls in a day. So let's go with that.
