I passed on Swim Rochelle months ago because I thought she would be super easy to find.  :argh:

I also passed on Swim Holt the same day. I don't like him, and I don't want him, but it sucks knowing that I could have easily traded him for something good. :/

From memory Swim Rochelle is still all over the TRU shelves here :/

I thought Jinafire was a boy at first, aha. It was quite the fail.

She was a store exclusive in the US, only available at Justice.  I passed on a Swim Holt there once.

I only saw them at one store called TOYS here in Costa Rica. We don't have TRUs or Justice stores, so I don't know how the whole exclusive thing works. You can find the US Walmart and Target exclusives literally everywhere here, so I figured it would be the same and I'd be able to find Rochelle anywhere else later on.

I'm not making that mistake again.   :facepalm:

Saw Gil in 3 different stores, passed each time... Then learned he's hard to find, and he of course had disappeared from the shelves. :facepalm:

When I first started to collect dolls, I came across a Signature Jackson. I didn't care much about the male dolls, so I just let him be.
I want to smack myself every time I think about it.

I did the same thing. Yeah she's not a boy. :P

Last Summer I stumbled across a sig Operetta in Wal-mart. Now I know how costly the sig dolls are, being brand new to MH. But back then I had no clue and figured she'd be around when I was finally interested.  :yikes:

Now I want her or a sig of Ghoulia, yeah no dice. And I have known about MH from the jump. But noo. Stupid normie for the fail.

I regret not doing my nightly Kijiji searches one evening months ago when I was tired. I woke up the next morning to find a lot listed the night prior marked "sold ppu" and it included these signatures with stands, diaries, pets and brushes: Deuce, Cleo, Nefera, Holt, Spectra, Rochelle, Toralei, Jackson, Draculaura and Lagoona. FOR $125 D:

I actually teared up a little lol. I was missing all of those except Draculaura at the time.

My mistake was not buying Gloom Beach Jackson for my DD. I was not buying monster high for various reasons, including thinking 6yrs old was too young for MH, but now I wish had.

Saw a random Nefera on the shelf, but I didn't get her because I didn't realize I would never see her again.

After that, I always pick up the new ones I want, especially new characters and boys, soon as I see them. So many of the boys I see maybe twice, then never again. Others rares, I see them maybe twice, then it takes 6 months before they flood shelves. All of a sudden though, poof gone and never heard from again.

SW Holt, CB Toralia, RM Clawdeen, SW Venus with correct make-up, all 4 of these I saw once and pounced, then they were never seen again.

PD Opie, I have seen her once without the correct mask, but I have yet to see her again.

LOL The opposite happened to me. I jumped and bought her because I'd read online that she was somewhat hard to find. She didn't have the right mask, but I thought it might be my only chance to get her. Then, BOOM! She was literally everywhere.

5-6 months later, BOOM! The version with the CORRECT mask is in several stores. :|

I hate how you can't predict these things.

I FINALLY saw PD Operetta for the first time in the wild last week.  She STILL had the wrong mask!  Good thing I begged and pleaded for someone to find me one with the correct mask.  I'd never have her if I had to wait for MI to get with the program.
