Awww, I like Twyla. I dunno if I'd want her (I'd have to see her in person) but man she's cute :D These silly hoodies are growing on me.

Dang, Twyla looks like me in the mornings with those dark circles under her eyes! The hoodie line is bizarre, but in the best way.

The hoodie line is cute and weird, I wish there were more characters in it!  This seems like a line that Ghoulia would have been in, back in the day. 

The tea dolls don't quite land with me, but they are nice.  It's another line I wish had different or more characters in.  Rochelle, Robecca, Catrine and Cleo all feel like characters who would have rocked this line.
I make the dolls Mattel won't.

I'm really liking Clawdeen and Ari's hair, but those dresses are so bland-tastic. I would've loved something more lolita-ish or rococco with a monster-y twist, instead of a word dress and another note/sheet music/piano key motif for the musical character. The heavy handed approach of notes on everything annoyed me with Operetta(whom I love anyway) back in G1 and it annoys me now, because it ruins an otherwise perfectly good Ari. I'm not a redresser, but I guess there's a first time for everything. I'll have to hunt down an old Spectra fashion pack and send that note dress packin'.

Might or might not get the monster onesie Venus. Keep going back and forth, which means I'll probably get her in the end, despite being totally meh about her bonus outfit.

Oh my gosh the hoodies are awful and I want all of them! They're so perfectly tacky! I actually dig Draculaura's weird puffball dress, although it (like really everything for the hoodies ones) doesn't really seem to match her established style. I suppose that's the issue with themed dolls—they match the theme, not the style (with exceptions, of course).

I'm also loving the tea party. I wonder if a set of chairs and a table and such would be released with one of the dolls (maybe one of the other mains could be getting a tea party doll too?), like oh, Cleo and the 13 wishes oasis. With MH waning, I suppose a big set like that would be a little far fetched, but a lot of the recent releases (the family themed sets, Draculaura's art studio, etc) seem to be centered around playhouse style accessories.

Just speculation, of course.

Yay lines to be excited about!
I really like the hoodie line.. I don't see their dresses as every day wear dresses though... Fancy PJs maybe  :shrug:
Tea party is cute, I don't like frilly lagoona though she should be more sporty.
I wish the final dolls had the old bodies... I miss these hands with the splayed fingers.

The hoodie line is super cute....can't get into Lala's, IMO baby blues don't work on her....but Venus is too cute!  Still on the fence about the tea party line. 

I hope the fact that these pics show articulated dolls means the final product will be articulated dolls too.  No more limited articulation please...

Draculaura's little wings are adorable! As much as I'd like to see some different characters, I'm going to need all of the Howlin' Hoodies dolls!

I do like the Venus doll and hoodie.  And I always like transparent accessories.

I really need to do a two pannel comic about this.

-It seems Count Fabulous has fallen into a bucket of pink paint. Draculaura really should clean him up before it sets.
-More Stepford haircuts
-But articulation?? And two outfits?? Thank you, Mattel!

- Clawdeen looks really good. Like, surprisingly good. They didn't give her that horrible airhead-face! And the accessories are really cute.

-Lagoona's accessories are really nice, too. Her hair will have to be fixed, but at least they didn't just leave it as a ponytail. They gave it a nice bow-thing.

Just when we had given up hope, we get these, and it's not bad. Really, really not bad.

They're cute, but I don't think I need any of them.


And is it just me, or does Ari's hair look like a poodle's...? :hmm:

Twyla's pretty adorable, really givin' off those Louise Belcher vibes.
I miss her awesome gradients though, it's just a weird swirly tattoo that looks like prominent veins. O.o
Pink's not my fave on Twyla either, to be honest.
But her pajamas might just be so adorable that I don't care. xD
Also Esbayne on the MLP Arena, PonyIsland, and pretty much everywhere else.

I think I need to grab that Lagoona for her stock.  Her top is scary cute.

I'm really digging that Draculaura and Lagoona. I like the entire Tea Party line, but considering they don't sell new MH lines in Australia anymore, if I can only get one, I'll get Lagoona.

I'm actually really liking the new lines, it feels like mattel is putting some effort to them beyond the budget line mark. However, and I hate to be that guy, but if i have to be picky, the amount of reused accessories is actually crazy.

On the Ghostly Tea Party Line:

- Clawdeen's teapot is Madeleine Hatter's and her shoes are Toralei's Coffin Bean shoes
- Lagoona's hair piece is Amanita Nightshade's hair decoration, and her shoes are the ones from the
   student exchange program.
- Ari's bag is Signature Spectra's bag. It does seem to me like the fan and the teacups are new, tho!

Not sure about the rest, and not necessarily saying that reusing accesories is bad, but it still feels subpar to what they used to do. The hoodies line is great, anyway. I think out of all of them i'm wanting Ari Poodleton the most. If anything i'll just make her a rococo inspired dress to match the crazy hair!
