If they're doing all the Halloween versions, I hope we get Demon Symmetra *_*

When they couldn't even released a cheap Getting Fairest and reused fabric (Farrah only has two dolls and you're doing that...), you know they mismanaged this property.

It's still a prettier Farrah than her sig.

Honestly the whole EAH situation reminds me a lot of what I've read happened with Jem back in the 80s. Like Jem, EAH was pricier than what else was currently on the market and failed to catch on. Like Jem, EAH had a well written animated series that was probably more popular than the actual dolls. And, like Jem, EAH was stymied by efforts from their main competitor using well known characters, in this case ironically Hasbro with Disney Descendants.

I wonder if like 20 years later Mattel will put out some collector dolls (Since Mattel does their own collector dolls unlike Hasbro who refuses to tap that market so they had Integrity do them instead) to cash in on the nostalgia and also try to release a really bad live action movie that has little to do with the original premise. Well at least one thing I hope for is that with all the talented customizers in the community we will at least see the prototypes come to life sooner rather than later.

I wasn't around then, I always had the impression that Jem was fairly popular! But this is a time where Nostalgia is Cool so ... wow.

Cleo (School's Out) and Mousedes (Sig).

I love the "spoiled princess with a heart of gold" trope, and when I first got into the line, it was Cleo that impressed me. "And I am nothing is not magnanimous."

I mean lets be honest, the people who ran Toys R Us into the ground, may now want to bring it back, isn't that pretty much what they are saying here?
Sell it off give someone else a chance to run it, they've already shown they couldn't.

It's "No one paid us enough to actually make it worth selling so let's try again".

In a bankruptcy court filing Monday, the funds said they had canceled a plan to auction off the company’s intellectual property. Instead, they are seeking to reorganize the assets into a new company that will maintain the current license agreements and can invest in new retail operating businesses.


You know, I missed TRU more than I thought I would. So this is nice.

The only NYCC reveal I really like is Okoye and her wig.

Though Jan and George Glass is hilarious too.

Not that anything you said was wrong Jabroniville, but Stockholders would have to really be obtuse to not see that this line is dead.

I was just thinking how much I missed MHNTM. I have far less dolls now, but I still want to photograph them. I'd be up for a challenge!

I think later in the line, the Skelita's became rarer, especially her Scaritage one.

We still have the occasional ballerina doll.

I still can't stop laughing at how callous and late this announcement was. I wonder if Mattel knows what happened to Julius Caesar?

They couldn't even give the death notice in a timely manner. Anyone could have guessed this a year ago?

Has anyone seen the Hoodie girls anywhere?  I haven't seen them IRL or online.

They were not released.

The first competent MH dolls in a year and a half and...they're not released :(

A lot of our Forces of Destiny dolls are now 5$ that used to be 20$.

Even that fancypants Leia set is like 10$.

There is a humongous leak on the subreddit and I only took three things away from it.

- Wild Thornberrys.
- Lots of Disney Supercute Plush.
- And finally, almost three years after they announced it, Star Vs. The Forces of Evil.

^ Well, that doesn't entice me to go out and buy toys. Way to go yet again, Toys R Us!

I did get an exclusive POP for 9$ instead of 11.99$ a few days ago. Not bad.

I saw the "So where are they?" posts and went back to the first page going "Well this just got made a week ago...wait a minute...it's May..."

Where are they....
