I was just browsing amazon and saw this.  In the description it's labeled as a collector version but it looks a lot different than the promo pics we first saw.

Here's the link:

https://www.amazon.com/Monster-High-Abbey-Bominable-Doll/dp/B01NGTFM7B/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1500772884&sr=8-1&keywords=monster+high+collector+abbey+bominable+doll

She looks like a sort of electrified version with the crimped hair but I like this version better as a collector doll.
  Sorry if this is old news.

I'm pretty sure the shoes look different...
Otherwise, I don't see anything drastically different from what we saw before. I haven't seen those pics in a pretty looong time.

It appears to me that the fur on the fabric has a shorter pile (hair) so we can see the details  of the non fur fabric easier, it doesn't look as messy as before

I'd say it looks exactly the same actually. The left is a picture posted to Instagram in February.

my phone is dead rn but I found a promotional image of her on tumblr and she had the gappy-jointed reboot body and they got rid of her Abbey hands. As in her hands look like normal hands, bot large clawed hands. I really hope she keeps the regular body and hands not the gappy ones

edit: found the link https://mindose.tumblr.com/image/163303987334

I'm not seeing any differences, either. The only "difference" I see is that the photo on Instagram was taken with direct flash that washed out some of the colour in the doll. The general details otherwise look the same.

I also think she's a hot mess compared to the other collectors dolls so far (even Skelita was cuter, though neither is a match for that Draculaura). I'm also disappointed that they included Shiver, but didn't do a special version of him for the release.

Hmm.. only difference I can see is that the fur (or whatever it is) on her skirt looks slightly different in the second pic - but that could just be the lighting or whatever. I think most of the 'differences' are just because the photos are taken in different lights/settings.

Avatar art by my mother =).

I think the little differences can also be chalked up to amazon's pictures being the prototype version.
The shoes are split down the center as we usually see with the prototypes.

Sorry guys I guess I made a mistake.  I thought the promo pics had Abbey with gray fur and a bone in her hair.  I remember being disgusted with it.  I'm sorry, I'm wrong.

Looks like someone got her early. Here's a little preview of the doll in its box.

I'm happy to see it comes with a diary. Keep it up with these diaries Mattel!

The artwork is really cute!  I love the hat on the skullettes.
