I think Mattel hit the ball out of the park with these three beautiful girls. Absolutely stunning face ups. BRING THEM ON  :P :P :P

Isi is SO GORGEOUS, oh my god! I haven't wanted a new release this badly since I first started collecting, I'm just so in love with her!! I like Batsy a lot too, they really did a good job with these.

Is Kjersti the first MH doll with eyes glancing to the side? I still like Isi best. Batsy's boots look much better without the things sticking out and I'm glad her wings are solid. But I can't get used to the skin being so close to Draculaura's. Once again! How many pink vampires will they make until even kids get sick of them?

One thing, tho. "Brand-Boo Students"? What was wrong with Monster Exchange?

I'm thinking that it's because Isi is techically from the "Boonited Scares of America" being from Boo Hexico, so the Exchange thing wouldn't work as well as it did in Wave 1.

Naw, we had that same discussion long ago. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Student_exchange_program

Quote
A student exchange program may involve international travel, but does not necessarily require the student to study outside of his or her home country. For example, the National Student Exchange program (NSE) offers placements throughout the United States and Canada.

ISI!! And I LOVE Batsy, I didn't think I'd like her nearly this much! Definitely gonna get both of them :D

I wonder when these'll be released... I figured we wouldn't see them until Christmas, but maybe they'll be released a bit earlier? I'm so excited!!

Is Kjersti the first MH doll with eyes glancing to the side?

I'm not sure that she's actually supposed to be glancing off to the side.  It may just be an illusion caused by the off-centered pupils.  Her irises are centered within the sclera, so unless she can move her pupils separately from her irises, she must be looking straight forward.  Either way, those eyes aren't making a whole lot of sense. lol

You're right, but I think that's due to the fact that the promo doll's eyes are hand painted. She seems to be looking straight on in the in-box pics.

I'm way to excited- I'm going to read the comments after!

KJERSTIIII
Oh my god I love her again. I was so disappointed but her little HAT and that adorable sideglance... I really hope that's not an error and they keep that. (Oops just read it's not. Oh well! She's still adorable!)
I need her so bad.

And Isi! Oh man oh man oh man.

I'm soo excited. Still not liking Batsy but that's okay.

Saw these on Instagram. Wasn't expecting to love Batsy so much.   I need her but I need two of Isi!!!

And I still stand by my love of Kiersti's eyes.

When do we think we will see them?

Batsy! Didn't know if I was going to like her but now I'm sold. Actually all three of them are amazing.
One hope that I have, are these characters and the first wave of exchange students. Go on to have more releases.

Oh you're right!  Her eyes look totally different there.

I hope I'm not late to the party....finally some nice large and clear pics of the new ghouls!

Isi...............is just absolutely stunning.  I'm gonna need at least 2 of her (one can be nude, LOL).  I love deer, and it'd be cool to have more than one student who's the daughter of a deer spirit.

Batsy....is gorgeous.  Love the use and depth of the greens in her top, and her hair.

Kjersti......is too cute not to buy!!!  Love the color of her skin, and her pixelated eyes. 
If they show up in stores right away I'll have to try really hard not to buy them.  Trying to stick to my "dolly diet."

Finally!!

I've seen some interesting discussion on the cultural accuracy/exploitation of Isi. From a simply aesthetic standpoint, she's absolutely beautiful, but it is kind of a shame/inappropriate how they just threw a random assortment of Native American things together for her. :( But it may be too optimistic in the first place to expect cultural accuracy from Mattel, so... She's still beautiful, though. I can't deny that... Her hair color is amazing.

Batsy might take the cake for my favorite though. She has so many things I love- two-toned lips, a one-piece with shorts, tall boots... yep, she's gorgeous and I am in love. Glad her skin isn't too pink either!! I also am starting to warm up to Kjersti too.. her nose rocks, she's actually pretty cute now that I look at her up close. I'm so excited for these!
