I can confirm for sure that the collectors are coming.

Thereís no plans to reboot the line, but letís hope these sell well so they may consider it in the future.

All I can say is that IF these reports are true and IF that clown picture is the real deal, I won't be getting them, esp at those suggested prices. It just doesn't look like the MH brand, just some sad IT custom doll using a EAH head.

That doll has been confirmed by someone who was on the MH Team to be a custom and is not the IT Pennywise doll

Wow.  I did not see that coming. :blink: lol

Technically they might be some other product or doll and not MH dolls, but the odds are looking good that these are in fact MH dolls... and I'm pretty excited to see them if they are!

Nice to finally have this matter settled.

I do hope they come with some additional accessories, or at least some interesting packaging, as they appear a little bare bones. Depending on the final prices, I'm probably going to grab these. Enjoy both movies, and I'm a sucker for twins.

Ideally this is a way of testing the water and there's a chance to continue this type of line in the future. I've always been interested in MH versions of more modern monsters and once you've decided to base one on a child-eating shapeshifter, there's little else that could be deemed "inappropriate."

Perhaps my dreams of a Charlene Ray doll may still come true...

Yeah I saw those pics earlier and I have very mixed feelings. To me they just look like another version of those characters, with very little imagination thrown in. They're not typical MH ie as in sons and daughters of said monsters, plus are they really monsters at all?  Just dunno what to make of them but one thing is for sure, you won't find these in Walmart lol, or maybe we will.

Apparently also rumoured is Draculaura's voice artist has been doing some new MH work....

Oh wow, they released! They look pretty good, but too close to the original characters. I still sort of like them!  :)

The prices I've heard are $60 for Pennywise and $75 for the twins.
Not sure how accurate that is, but I guess we'll find out on the 23rd (so soon!).

Just dusted off this url on my browser to see if anyone had posted this yet. I'm excited! I've missed this line so much! I don't even like horror films but i'm tempted to get them, hopefully more will come out too. Other WB (Warner Bros) monsters maybe?

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad Mattel are reviving the line but where is the High in this Monster High release? They are not students, just a slight spin on regular horror characters.

I'm also trying to figure which recycled head sculpt Pennywise has? The Grady twins is (too)obviously Twylas head sculpt.

HOLY CARP!  It actually FINALLY happened!  There's been so much back and forth, I can hardly believe it.

The Pennywise doll is actually kinda great?  The twins are exactly as boring as they were obviously going to be, considering they're literally just girls in dresses.  I do wish they'd made them child-sized.

Does anyone know where they'll be "arriving" on 10/23?

I think it's Catrine?

I'm not sure why, but it's a little unsettling to see Monster High dolls with realistic human skintones  ^^;

To me they look bland and boring, there is nothing collector about the dolls but I'm happy Monster High is back.  :shrug:

Oooo!  I really like them!  Much more than I thought I would! :D <3
I doubt that I will get them simply because I'm not a huge fan of either movie, but I think they turned out very nice!

Tbh I'm hoping this is their movie glamour reveal and we will get more practical breakdowns of what they actually come with soon.
And is actually a price confirmed anywhere yet? People are saying $60+ for each but i don't see any actual listings or mentions of anything about buying them in the news articles i've looked at. And there aren't that many at the moment.

But that has molded attached cat ears, maybe the Create A Monster cat?

I'm just happy to FINALLY be done with all the back-and-forth, lol. They don't do it for me, but I expected that all along, I don't care about these films after all. Though they do look nicely detailed, definitely better than most of G2. Hope this leads to something actually MH instead of this MH-in-name-only stuff.

Hmm.. Penny's face looks like the Catrine/Werecat twins mold to me too (how difficult would it be to remove the ears from that mold?) but I'm not an expert, I could be wrong. Doesn't look like the CAM cat to me... plus they'd have to modify that anyway (CAM heads were different to normal heads, they couldn't just re-use one wholesale for a regular doll) and I don't see them going to the trouble of doing that when there's plenty of other heads they could have used? Hmmm.
