Saw Epic Winter Apple White, and also the Fright Mares Flara, Caprice and Olympia in Kmart at Chadstone Shopping Centre. Kind of disappointed that we skipped Fright Mares wave 2, Fawntine was the only one I wanted!

Did you end up finding a Fawntine? I saw one at my local Kmart yesterday.

Up until I saw her in the box, I thought Elle was another Spectra!  ^^; She's so pretty! She definitely has that Metropolis art deco look going on.

Man, I'm so pumped we're finally getting a proper robot and not another steampunk pretender (sorry Robecca! I've never been a fan of steampunk)

I did the thing! Check it out!

I bumped a couple of the US 2014 releases into our 2015 list, because we got them a little later here and they seemed relevant.

Anyone had their Frankie's white hair tinge yellow, and is there a way to fix it?

My dolls have been packed away for a few months and when I checked on them today I found Meowlody and some of my Frankies had changed their hair colour!  :sad:

I think it's glue related, none of the affected dolls have had their hair washed. Has tea tree oil worked for anyone or is baby powder the way to go now?

Pass! I like Spectra, but this version doesn't do anything for me. :/

Awesome! I wasn't expecting to see the new swim line dolls here. I just got around to updating, sorry! I've had a bit of a self imposed internet black-out during end of semester.  ^^; Should I add States along with the sightings?

Also, anyone looking for PD Lala and Operetta you might be in luck. They're pictured in the latest David Jones christmas catalogue, along with Cleo and Lagoona, for $29.99.

Are the PD case assortments still the Cleo/Frankie/Abbey/Lagoona ones? I'm a little confused with the first post because I've never seen any Operetta, Spectra or Draculaura here.

Also Catty Noir is on clearance for $35 at some Big Ws... she may drop more though if they don't move. Have heard some Toyworlds have her for as low as $30.

What's happening with the first post and the statuses, tho? I haven't seen Sig Rochelle, Sig Abbey, Scaris deluxe and Catrine for a long time. Plenty of DDG Lagoona but haven't spotted the other two recently either. Big W is pretty much the only store I've really noticed with good stock of Roller Maze, those are being clearanced out. Nor have I recently seen the Coffin Bean or Draculaura+Bed. I'm in Melbourne tho, maybe others have seen

Thanks for the feedback! I think you're right, we didn't get the PD assortment with Draculaura, or Operetta and Specta. I'd assumed we did when I first saw the dolls because she's in a case with Cleo and Abbey. But it looks like the ones we have seen are all together in a revised wave. Sorry for the confusion everyone.

The statuses was something I was concerned about too. I should probably change blue to mean "it's been released"?
I don't think the scarce/no longer on shelves is very helpful either, as it's kinda hard to accurately keep up with. I thought the SS 5 pack was gone from shelves, but I was surprised when my local kmart put out a whole new case of them.

I haven't seen Draculaura & bed and the Coffin Bean since the mid-year sales either actually  :blush: They might have been brought in just for those catalogues, like they did with the Year of the Snake transformers.
I've seen some Scaris deluxe still in Myers, and the sig Abbey and Rochelle in Target and Mr Toys. But I suspect that might be the last of them.

Oops! Forgot to say the Roadster with Lala is at Big W. I think it's a new release for us, I haven't seen it before anyway.
 Hopefully you'll be able to find a PD Draculaura as well. :D I haven't had any luck with Scarah, but my local TRU said they would be restocking this week.

Upcoming catalogue sales, these don't start until the 19th:

Picture Day and Power Ghouls $14 at Kmart

Music Festival $14.72, Draculaura's Roadster with doll $45, Catty $40. (edit: at Big W, sorry!)

CAM 2 packs, Lab and Roller Maze dolls half price at Myers.

Good news, Catty isn't exactly exclusive with just about every retailer stocking her.  :D

Those DotD shoes need a reprint. They're unreal.

I think it's just to scare off us internationals,  :P  or cover their butts for items getting lost in international shipping.

Whoa yes!  :biggrin: Sorry, I'm just super keen to pick up Scarah. Thanks for the tip!

As for Lala, I think she was in the assortment sent to Target stores during the mid-year sales, but I haven't seen her since. I'll keep an eye out for you though.

edit: Also guys, does the first post work for you or would you like to see it formatted differently?

Catty Noir is also available at Target and Mr Toys! $40.
Plus Lala's Powder Room and Basic Fashion packs reduced to $15 and $10 respectively, at Target.

The Dance Class 5 Pack is now out at Kmart. $59.

Thank you! I totally forgot about Abbey.  :blush: Just added Colour Me Creepy starter packs and Cleo with Oasis Playset at TRU.

As for Catty, I'm guessing your best bet would be Big W, although they did just have Catrine. You could try ordering her online at TRU?

I freakin' love Scarah! I've been taking pics of my slightly-restyled SDCC Scarah (my treasure of treasures!) while I wait for I <3 Fashion to show up at TRU here...

She's perfect omg.  :love: This pic is so cute, I love how you styled her hair.
Still waiting for ILF Scarah, I need her yesterday.

Must have snapped this about a year ago in Big W:

Missing doll? Are you serious?  It's obviously nothing short of theft. :grr: I'm surprised this happens in Australia, usually the staff are supposed to be really particular with returns.

13W sigs, HtC party dolls and Catty Noir ($39) now in Kmart too. (Garden City and Mt Ommaney)

Signature 13 Wishes dolls and Catty Noir in Toys 'R' Us. Catty was $50.

Just a heads up guys, I checked out the TRU site and some of the MH stuff is on sale this week. Catty is down to $40, 13Wishes/HtC Spectra and Party Lounge is $60 (down from $80). Doesn't seem to be related to a catalogue or anything.

Um, these are super adorable and I think I need to get one.  :love: Who would look good hanging out with Malie Tasker? Angelala? Garny? Can't wait for Moose to start distributing these in Australia.

I think 10,000 is a pretty high run for a limited exclusive, so when Clover does appear you shouldn't have too much difficulty finding one. Or at least finding one for a good price on ebay. 1000 and under I'd be freaking out a bit.
