Off Topic / Re: Fandom/SDCC Doll Swap?
« on: April 01, 2018, 07:06:16 PM »
do you think i can have more information? A question i have is do you mean like a custom doll for SDCC? since it's comic book based, do you to customize a doll?

If there are multiple people interested, I'd like to have it open to both customizers and non-customizers. My thought was if there are a few people interested that when you sign up you can say if you are interested in getting and giving store bought, custom pieces or either/mix.  This way people of all skill levels can participate. 

Take myself for example, I can make clothing and some props/accessories, but I couldn't do a faceup to save my life. If I offered mix then I could say make some geeky doll clothing for my recipient but also pick up a few cute, small items for them as well, and then a doll off their wishlist.

Off Topic / Fandom/SDCC Doll Swap?
« on: March 31, 2018, 11:02:49 PM »
Is there any desire to do a fandom/geeky based doll swap? I was thinking it would be fun to do it around the time of San Diego Comic Con. I'm interested in either doing just a two person swap or organizing a small group one. Since it wouldn't be an official MHArena one it would be open to Monster High, Ever After High, DC Super Hero Girls, Descendants, Equestria Girls, and Barbie.

This post is to check interest and brainstorm.

Not surprised.  It doesn't off the sorts of deals that Walmart and Target does and it doesn't offer a unique experience like other smaller toy stores do.  For the random family there is little incentive to shop there when you can get a better deal or have more fun someplace else.

the 18inch DCSHG dolls are on sale for $19.99 (online at least)

In store as well, though mine had no signs indicating the lower price they rang up at $19.99 at the register.

The Hot Toys Age of Ultron Scarlet Witch and the Five Star TV-Show Supergirl dolls were recently purchased and added to my collection.  I also have the CGL Quicksilver doll on preorder.

Funny story about the t-shirt from my dad.  He really wanted the Junior Mints.  I told him he couldn't have them because it was a swap and only people who swapped could eat the Junior Mints.  I was teasing him at this point and I was going to just give them to him.  Well, he comes home from his shift and had gotten you a t-shirt from the station so that he would have technically swapped with you.

You are overloaded on amazing dolls!  Great haul!

Her surgeries went well.  She's been unconscious since the accident.  So they took her off the sedation drugs and are waiting for her to wake up.

I've been working on building up a big media library for her to read/watch in the hospital.  I'm also thinking of making the collage suggestion.

In cute news, some friends of mine are at C4 this weekend.  One of the guests is Debi Derryberry.  She is the voice actress for Draculaura and Nina Thumbell.  One of my friends drew a picture of Draculaura hugging Candy (from Smile Precure/Glitter Force and another character voiced by Debi).  She then got Debi to sign it and she even wrote a nice message too.  I was told that she was really sweet and asked all kinds of questions about how the hospitalized friend it doing.

Monster Discussion / Re: 'Welcome to Monster High' - Fall 2016 movie
« on: October 29, 2016, 08:06:53 PM »
I finally watched the movie and I have to say that I loved it.

This was definitely a reboot.

For the first time since I've tried Monster High I found Draculaura to be likable.  I might actually even get a doll of her now.  Frankie being techy made sense when you think about her occasional mad scientist tendencies in G1 Monster High.  I don't think it will take away from Ghoulia to have another smart girl character.

I've never liked the use of the term "normie" in Monster High as it reminded me too much of real world slurs.  Other than Frankie using it once when meeting Draculaura there was a clear divide between the good guys using "human" and Moanica using "normie".  I appreciated that a lot.

Dracula and WolfMom were adorable. 

The stakes felt more real and more emotional than in many of the other movies. Moanica had a real goal and it was one that would feel familiar to viewers.

As long as the G2 universe doesn't make the mistake of monsterfying every single city, country, and landmark like the old one did I will actually be able to believe it's message of living together and that monsters are in hiding.  If they go back and show the Great Fright Flight I'd like to see both humans and monsters equally in the wrong.  Don't get me wrong, there was nothing with a monster world in and of itself, but it completely changes Ghoul's Rule and the some of the early episodes.

I imagine that the future episodes and specials will slowly reintroduce many of the old characters without recounting their old intros blow by blow.

It is sad that your friend is no longer into Monster High, but I'm sure you guys still have lots of other things in common.  One of the best ways I've found to meet other fans is to go to anime and comic book conventions.  I've found that even if people don't share your interest that they at least accept it.

Brags / Private Swap with Robina
« on: October 28, 2016, 07:41:08 PM »
Robina and I decided to do a private doll swap.  In between when we agreed to it and now I've had a rough couple of weeks.  Receiving the box from her is one of the few good things to happen this week.



That little cutie with the box is d'Eon my cat.  He's named after a French knight from the 1700s.



First there was a wooden box with the one and only Sailor Moon.  A sticker on the inside reveals it was done by Myrcury.

And what does Sailor Moon love?



Candy!



First doll unwrapped and it is Musketeer Rochelle Goyle!  I've always wanted my very own Rochelle as a musketeer doll.  This is basically my dream Monster High doll and it's in my hands!



I got a little excited and forgot to take a picture after the second doll.  So here is Rochelle with the second and third doll together.  I got ANOTHER custom.  Apple White, one of my favorite Ever After High characters, dressed as Snegurochka, my favorite fairy tale character.  The third doll is the magician Frankie Stein doll!  This is one of my favorite Frankie dolls to boot!



They are joined by Queen Chrysalis in her beautiful human form.  I don't think she likes the height difference.



Darling Charming joins the party!  Her dragon games doll is such a beauty!



I couldn't help myself.  I had to do a shippy picture with lady and knight.



Yes, Rochelle is one of my favorite characters!  Now I have her vinyl!



I adore Halloween and kitty cats!  This is... purrfect.



What's this?  My custom dolls get CUSTOM STANDS!?  Are you trying to spoil me?  And Rochelle gets a hat and earrings too!



According to the card the clothing was by QueenofKawaii and the shoes and stands are by Myrcury.  I think they did amazing work

Thank you so much for this Robina.  This really brightened things up for me in these bleak times.

Off Topic / Monster Prom
« on: October 28, 2016, 05:18:24 PM »
I was browsing the gaming news websites when I found some info for an upcoming dating sim called Monster Prom.  You play as a male or female monster in a monster highschool with three weeks to go until prom.  Your romance choices are a gorgon, mermaid, ghost, werewolf, vampire, or demon.

I just had a feeling that a video game about monsters in highschool might be relevant to the interests of this forum.

Samantha, my best friend, was on her way home from work on Monday night on her motorcycle.  She was in a head on traffic collision with the car.  She hit the windshield and then rolled off the hood and onto the pavement.  She suffered a broken leg, broken arm, her pelvis is in at least five pieces, and there is bleeding in her brain.  Doctors are hopeful for her recovery.  She's been kept sedated since the accident.

Sam is a huge fan of Ever After High, especially Apple White.  She likes Monster High but not as much.  Cleo is her favorite for that.  She also loves RPGs, magical girls, scifi, fantasy, and rock. 

I want to do something nice for her for when she wakes up, but I don't know what.  She doesn't like having a lot of money spent on her.  Any ideas?

So are they still using the term "normie" for humans?
Yep!

Thanks for the answer.  I was hoping they'd finally get rid of it.  It always sounded like a slur to me.  It always hit me as kind of backwards in a series about celebrating differences and accepting each other.

I don't know if there will be an official one, but you can always do a private swap between yourself and another member.  I've done a couple private ones on the forum and they are really fun.

I personally feel like Shiro's an improvement. I like that they've returned to his actual Japanese roots, and he's... ok, I'll admit he's hot and that's a huge reason I love him. He deserves the world.

So, I preface everything by saying that I think Shiro is a well written character, but also express my sadness about how my favorite character in one of my favorite childhood shoes really exist in the reboot.  And then you respond with that Shiro is better because he's prettier.  You do realize how that comes across, right?  Would you like that if someone said something similar about one of your favorite characters while you were sad about them not truly being in a new adaptation? 

If you loved Ghoulia, posted about your sadness about her potentially not being the new Monster High reboot, and then I responded with a post that I thought Moanica was an improvement because I found her prettier how would you feel?

I didn't say he's an improvement because he's hot, I said I find him hot. Please don't try to make out like I said something I didn't. :(

For me, at least, he's the same character as Sven, just with the original Japanese name. Don't forget that the dub changed everything: Keith wasn't Keith, he was Akira, Sven was Shiro, Allura was Fara. that's how dubs work. He's functionally the same, but with his original name. I personally don't see any difference between Sven and Shiro.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

That was how it came across.

To call Voltron just a dub is a tad misleading.  It was created from Beast King GoLion, Armored Fleet Dairugger XV, and original footage.  There was also plans for Lightspeed Electroid Albegas.  This is assuming we don't count Voltron: The Third Dimension and Voltron Force.  While they Voltron and GoLion characters do have similarities, as the footage of one was used as the basis of the other, they are not the same characters.  Also, GoLion is only really important in the history of mecha for providing the footage for Voltron to the point that Toei sold all rights to GoLion to WEP.  It did poorly in Japan and has never had a Japanese media release.  The original Voltron is more like Power Rangers and VR Troopers than it is like the English dubs of Gundam Wing or Evangelion. 

Hiroshi's brother isn't one of the pilots of Voltron of the Near Universe's, Pidge's was. Takashi didn't recover from his injuries and help in other ways against Daibazaal, he died six episodes in and then his brother died at the end of the series.  Sven recovered and continued to fight against Zarkon, even at one point returning to pilot Blue Lion.  GoLion has the population of Earth killed in a nuclear war while Voltron, well doesn't.  It's like saying Power Rangers and Super Sentai are the same show.  Yeah, there are lots of things in common but both are their own distinct universes.
