Cleo and Ghoulia Origins 2-Pack!
« on: June 22, 2017, 09:46:46 AM »
Well, finally! Mattel have revealed the much anticipated Cleo and Ghoulia 2-Pack, which will be sold as a Mattel store exclusive on the 19th of July.

I gotta say, both of these dolls look fantastic. It's nice to see Mattel splashing on the detail again.

NICE.

Really grateful it's not a Con or in-person exclusive. Probably cost about 50$ though....

They look great!

... if it's a Mattel Shop exclusive, how would an international peep go about acquiring it? Do we have experience from past exclusives?

They look really good. So happy to see Ghoulia again! Also, something more similar to original Cleo, face wise.

I kind of hope they continue this "Origins" theme.

I will say though, I kind of wish Cleo was a bit more "extravagant". The One-Piece jump suit is just not enough for me.
Like both halves are fine alone, but then putting it all together, it's eh. If that makes sense...

I wonder if EAH is getting anything special...

Oh so the mystery shorts are Ghoulia's all along! :0

I'm so excited! I can't wait to get them! Also international peeps, iirc Finnegan Wake showed up in regular shops so this should be the case with this set as well!

First time in a while that I'm excited about a MH product, and it looks like they are original style body molds as well. No built in wrappings on that Cleo.

I'll admit too, I'd like to see them do a Cleo in a more traditional (maybe not the right word) Egyptian outfit sometime. Like something from the Cleopatra Movie from many years ago.

The more I look at her, the cuter Ghoulia gets.  I never got Finn, regret that one honestly, but I'm still not sure if I want this pack.  Depends on the price, I suppose.

Huh. I don't think I need them anymore, seeing the complete looks. I would have preferred a more casual school outfit for each, but the ridiculous mummy whatever and the explorer gear don't grab me. Still glad they're being made, though.

This is a must have for me since it has 2 of my fave ghouls!  I just wish I could pre-order it.  I don't like the thought of trying to buy it online the day of and not being able to. :(

Looks like...AR-ticulation! Yay!

I like the outfits.Love Ghoulia's safari hat or hardhat, whatever it's called.

So is this only available online thru Mattel starting July 19?

I really like this two pack!  How adorable that they have ghoulia being the explorer finding the mummy!
My only reservation is that I think a long gown/dress would have looked better on cleo, but overall it's not going to sway me from maybe buying them.
I wonder how much they'll sell for?

They look sooo amazing and detailed! :biggrin: Although seeing Cleo in a gown would be nicer, I still like what she's wearing. I wonder if Ghoulia is only returning for this or if she's going to be in something else later on.

Holy Cow they look AMAZING. I don't know if I'll pick these up, but I'm considering it very very much.
 
They look great!

... if it's a Mattel Shop exclusive, how would an international peep go about acquiring it? Do we have experience from past exclusives?

IIRC, Finnegan Wake was a Mattel Shop exclusive. He was available in stores internationally.

Finn was a shelfwarmer at tk maxx, but I'm sure that this 2-pack will be a lot more popular among people.
They are both stunning and it feels great, that I can finally write this about monster high dolls!

omg, I hadn't even noticed but I think you're right!! WOOOHOO!!!! I hate the molded wraps (they're a good idea but imo it doesn't work if they're not painted in, it just makes her look like she has a skin disease or something o.O) so this is awesome!!!

Also I just noticed Cleo's snake necklace! That's adorable, omg.

Wow, I REALLY like them. Is this what Mattel meant with their 'big plans' statement for Ghoulia? Well, I'm not disappointed! ^^

Is it just the angle, or does Cleo have a side-glance?
