Hi :)

Great idea for a thread.

Nothing to report yet. I'm going out to hunt monsters next week and will let you know if I find anything new. With all the stocktake sales on right now it might take a few more weeks before new stuff hits the shelves.
Dead things, Mikey! Dead things!!!

Hey thank you! :D  I hope this is helpful for someone at least. :)

Looks like most of the toy sales are starting this week or next, so if you're out hunting then you should find something you're looking for at a good price.

It's weird that Kmart has virtually no brand toys in their catalogue, but I heard there might be a second toy catalogue at a later date. :/

Also, I thought I'd note that Target's advertises Scaris deluxe dolls at half price, $14, and Myers lists Robbecca at $14 as well. Really good deals. :9


EDIT 19th June

Saw Heaps of Headless Headmistress at TRU Garden City, $59.99, but they're all out of PD dolls for now. :/

I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere else, hopefully this isn't a silly question! But do you know if we'll be seeing the "Skulltimate 4-pack" in the US? I think it looks like a ton of fun (all of those pieces!!!) but I dunno if I should even be looking for it or not! Thanks in advance, and sorry for the dumb question!
Current hunting list: Toralei and Werecat Twins set, CAM Puma, Heath, and CAM Gargoyle/Vampire set!

Haha, no that's totally fine. :)

According to Mandy's list, it looks like the Skultimate 4-pack is going to be a costco exclusive in the US.


I just noticed in the Kmart catalogue, we're finally getting the Skull Shores 5 pack. So the Dance Class 5 pack might not get here til this time next year. :/ I don't think we've missed any releases in Australia so far? I'm just used to retailers skipping half the transformers stuff.

Oooh Bloodgood is out here now? I'll have to take a trip to TRU later this week to find her. Bummer about there not being a Big W anywhere near me though, I needs me a Catrine ;)

@Martini - Awesome thread, thank-you.

Thank you very much for the help! I saw the Costco logo in the corner, but I assumed it meant Aussie Costcos, oooops! I dunno if you guys even have that brand there! Thank you very much for your patience with this MH noob!! *hugs*

Hey Everyone! Picture Day dolls are $14 at Target! :O They're set up on pre-packed cardboard pallets, so they're likely to be in the walkways around the store rather than the usual toy aisles.

Indooroopilly had PD Cleo, Abbey and tons of Lagoonas and Frankies. Unfortunately a lot of them have really bad wonk eyes. :s
Also on the pallet, plenty of Sig Venus, Rochelle and Abbey, also $14.

Mt Ommaney was pretty much cleaned out and only had Sig Venus and Robeccas.

Saw the GNO dolls at Mr Toys, I'm not sure if Toyworlds in other states have these also. They had Frankie's Bed too, for $40.

Haha, no that's totally fine. :)

No problem! :) I think we have one... in Melbourne?

Just got a Catrine from Big W in Doncaster :)

Yay! Glad you found one. I saw them today and wow! She's so pretty! My patience wore out at the start of the month and I ended up buying her on ebay for like $35, still not here though. :/

There were Ghouls Alive Clawdeen and Frankie at Big W, Ryde NSW. There were also thin boxed Scaris Dolls, Including Deuce.

There is also Costco in Sydney.

Also, is anyone living near a TRU/Kmart? I have none in my area and I want to see if Nefera is still available.

I live near a Kmart and I haven't seen Nefera in forever. Doesn't mean there isn't some out there with old stock though I suppose?

I'm close to two kmarts, and haven't seen Nefera for a long time. I didn't notice her at TRU last time I was there actually.  :(
Although, I'm also close to two toyworlds, they might have some stock, I don't mind checking.  :) Depends what your budget is.

It might be worth checking Myers and David Jones too. Their prices are usually higher, but that means they don't move old stock as quickly.
Plus, Myers currently has 20% off toys, not sure how long for though.


Anyway, Bloodgood is now $44 until the 23rd at TRU.
And added Ghouls Alive to the first post, thanks for reminding me Cleo. :D

We missed out on a LOT in the first year and are still missing some releases. It has gotten much better since mid to late 2012 as to how quickly we get things now though.

An Australian online store has been offering Catty Noirs for sale for $49.99, they are real as people have photos of them in box and out of box

If anyone is after Robecca, she is in Myer stores for $14.99

And there might be a Nefera at my local TRU. I'm going near there on Saturday and might be able to duck in for a look.

Is Twyla a Big W exclusive here, or will she be available in other stores? and if she is, are there other dolls that can only be found in those elusive stores?

If anyone can find a Nefera, I am willing to pay store price + shipping (Deboxex with all accessories) for the royal. I just adore Egyptian stuff!

I have seen some of the Haunt the Casbah dolls at Target, Macquarie Centre. Now Twyla or Gigi around my area yet.

I wanted to nab the Werewolf sister 2 pack. But I only wanted Howleen so...

Couldn't find Nefera. Checked all the shelves and they were mostly newer dolls, but not the latest releases. Still no sign of 13 wishes Lagoona... (sigh)
There was a skull shores Ghoulia though, and a LOT of Operetta.

Not sure how much she is, or if there will be any left after the sales.
I'll be going back to that store tomorrow and will try and pick up a couple :)

(edit) There were still lots of her :)

And TRU in Innloo, Perth are giving away clothing sets for free with the purchase of a $29.00 doll!
yay :)
