New dolls! Ballet Ghouls and Transforming Ghouls revealed
« on: November 01, 2017, 12:12:27 PM »
Finally, some new dolls for 2018! First, we've got the Ballet line, which features Cleo, Draculaura, and for some bizarre reason, Moanica.

Next, a new, much improved version of the Ghouls to Bat Draculaura, and a new Ghoul to Wolf Clawdeen.

And some new Minis which come with their pets.

Oh man... that ballet line. Not only are we getting molded/painted tights but also those horrible gappy joints?? I thought they would have fixed them after getting so many complaints about the Garden Ghouls. Oh well, at least they're articulated, and I kind of like those odd stiletto/ballet shoes they have. Reminds me of Lady Gaga

I think the Ghoul to Bat/Ghoul to Wolf dolls are neat though, it's a cool gimmick, and of course I like the minis.

IMO the quality of MH seems it's still declining but overall I don't have any new complaints-- also sorry for being so negative, I'll try to be more positive about the good aspects of new releases.  ^^;

I just want the plastic doodads of the ballet lines. They can keep the rest.

I love the minis and their tiny little pets! Hopefully they won't be too annoying to find... I am very fond of frankie and watzit.

I agree that the quality isn't what it used to be, but I'm just happy to see new dolls.  :P

I don't understand Moanica in the ballet line either, but man, I do like her look. 

Hopefully the minis won't be difficult to get.  I'm still waiting for series 2 wave 2 to show up around here.  I was able to find wave 3, but still no wave 2.  Argh, frustrating!  (And I'm guessing the second wave of Halloween minis never showed up anywhere?)

Well that's half of what was shown on social media during SDCC.

Tho I'm also wondering why there isn't a Clawdeen and Crescent set since Crescent is on the packaging. Maybe a second wave or a playset?

Oh, the mini pets are nice. I wish there was a Crescent, though :< Hopefully they'll make one later.

The new GtB doll is a surprisingly attractive design that actually has a unique impact. The ballet Moanica is also fantastic, though it's cruel that these tiny-platformed shoes don't get stands to cancel them out.

More minis means more being angry at Mattel Europe or the UK toy stores, whichever decided not to stock them...although I don't like the pets particularly so I guess this line not coming over here is ok for me. I am just a little obsessed with Abbey Minis :/

I don't really like these new releases but I think they are trying to include a range of characters and it is a different look for Moanica I guess?

I have pretty much done with the new wave now, I haven't seen any that really grab me recently. I might have got Cleo from the ballet line as I think the new wave Cleo is very pretty - but her hair is styled up and doesn't look very brushable and I like brushy hair :/ I think it would have been nice if they had gone for a darker theme but I guess that's the past...at least they have the articulation necessary to be dancers and that is good.

I don't hate the new wave. I really like the non-sticky hair on Lagoona especially from new wave dolls. But the collector set did make me remember that I really love Ghoulia too much and miss her as part of the main line. I think Moanica is an attractive and unusual doll but she can't compete with my favourite zombie.

Ghoul to Bat Drac 2.0 is actually rather pretty.  I might get her if I come across a good one.  Ghoul to Wolf Clawdeen feels like a weird Magical Girl.

Oh thank goodness we finally get another Draculaura doll. What's it been, eight, maybe nine minutes? I was starting to become concerned.

Also, why is Clawdeen now a peacock?

I might actually get the ballet Draculaura doll when she goes on sale and rebody her. Other than the minis, the rest of it is meh for me but not terrible or anything.

I feel like I might be the minority this time, but I hate the ballet line shoes. They look a bit like the stilts that Twyla wore, which is fine for a circus line, but really weird for a dance line. I get that they were going for a silhouette similar to a pointe shoe, but it doesn't work for me at all and looks really inelegant. And unlike Twyla's stilts, these don't convert into a "normal" pair of shoes.

That said, I quite like the blend used for Cleo's hair in the ballet release. The blues and teals in her fringe are really subtle compared to usual.

I have no opinion about the Transforming Ghouls beyond the fact that I'm not the target audience. Moulded-on clothing isn't my jam.

I like the color scheme used for Moanica's ballet doll.

Those are not ballet shoes  :annoyed:

Take that weird piece for Clawdeen, repaint it, and it could be used as a backpiece for a Thronecoming getup for Cerise. Clawdeen looks so childish with her eyes and her hair like that ...

I love the mini petas an want each and every one of them, I'm glad they're not blind and you can get whoever you want! Hopefully they'll do the others too! (Or at least Perseus, Shiver, Rhuen, Sir-Hoots-a-lot and... uh.... Venus' plant whose name escapes me at the moment. )
