Finnegan Wake with international diary?
« on: March 26, 2018, 06:37:28 PM »
I purchased a new Finnegan Wake on the U.S. Amazon a couple of weeks ago, and I just got around to thumbing through the included journal... For some reason, I received the “international” variant (where there’s just one page, repeated in several languages). I did purchase him from a third-party seller/store on Amazon, but I’m pretty sure they were U.S. based as well.

Just curious... Was the “international” packaging for Finnegan more common and/or distributed in the U.S.? I’ve never received anything but the English language journals before, and I’ve bought a lot of MH from a lot of different sources. It’s not an issue really, but I did find it unusual.

I bought Finnegan from Amazon not too long after Mattel's website ran out of stock, and I realized they wouldn't be selling anymore of them. Even way back then, they were selling the international version. I was super bummed about missing out on the full diary, and had been searching for one ever since. I finally found one on eBay just last week.

Wasn't Finnegan a Mattel shop exclusive in the US? I know he was available in stores internationally. That might explain Amazon's stock. I've gotten quite a few international dolls from Amazon. I've been meaning to write up a list of full diaries I still need....

Finn was indeed Mattel Shop Exclusive (at least in America). That's where I got him (one for me, then months later one for my brother).

Good news is that if you want to read his diary, the full text is available online. The Monster High fan wiki has all of the diaries.

Ah, that clears things up... Thanks for the info, guys!

I’m not too bummed out about the “incomplete” diary. My MH/EAH diaries pretty much just sit around in a drawer anyway (after I read them once). ^^; Finnegan himself is identical though, right? Not like the U.S. Haunted Spectra, or something?

I'm not aware of any differences between the two. Just what diary they include, and what languages they slap on the front of the box.

Ah, the international release of Haunted Spectra. I like to call her Generation 1.5 LOL
