Very cute!  I hope we get a couple diaries with it - I've missed them so much in Gen 2.
I make the dolls Mattel won't.

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?
She has side-glancing eyes.  I can't say I'm crazy about them, but YAY for no molded on wrappings, detail, full articulation, and G1 faceups!

I'm really hoping for detailed G1 boxart as well with the cute, cartoon-style drawings.

It's not really Cleo without an overly extravagant wardrobe, so this feels like her normal.

But I've always liked the idea of Ghoulia doing field research to learn more, and even though the shoes may be more fashionable than practical, they probably won't get filled with sand. I might trade in the shorts for a pair of pants tucked into the boots like her signature, but other than that, really liking the set.

Yay! Finally, something to get excited about again! Especially, a new Cleo. I have been down in the doldrums about MH lately due to the recent decline in quality and just plain unappealing dolls.

I've never been a fan of Cleo, but I actually really like this one.  I love the outfit and she's adorable.  Ghoulia is always fab, I never have a problem with her.

Probably from color correction on the image but Ghoulia is just so BLUE it's wonderful.

Ghouliana Jones and the Treasure of the Golden Tomb!

YES!!! This is a must get for me, as Cleo and Ghoulia are two awesome characters and Cleo's wardrobe is freaky fabulous!
Got clones? I've got over one hundred... How many do you have?

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!

Finnegan is still on store shelves at my TRU in London. That gives me some hope. I will definitely buy that two pack if I can get my hands on it here, but the currency exchange overseas at present is a pain. Still, that is the pretty Ghoulia, and I need more pretty Ghoulia dolls. Plus I am getting much  more interested in Cleo of late.

I also love what that set implies about how Ghoulia and Cleo met. I don't remember anything about that in the original canon and I know it's not in the new canon, because it's Frankie and co who go to Cleo, but this definitely gives strong hints about their friendship's origins which I like very much.

According to the MH Figurine Magazines, Ghoulia met Cleo at school, helped her out with a tough riddle, and they've been friends ever since.

Ooo, marking my calendar!  I'm a sucker for this set in so many ways: Ghoulia, Cleo, nods to ancient Egypt and archeology, hats and headpieces, need I go on?

I'm slightly disappointed it's not the thicker body, but I too am happy she doesn't have the wrapping detail.
