Monster Discussion / Re: Collector's Edition Abbey Bominable
« on: Yesterday at 03:43:22 PM »
I can't say I like CE Abbey either.  The face is just blase' to me.  I don't get why she has this pink "mask" type thing across her eyes, like the Haunted Ghouls did.  Not a fan of the doe eyes either (grrrr reboot) nor the crimped hair.  Her dress is...interesting.  I wouldn't mind having that in a smaller scale for my standard size Abbey.

I'm pretty sure the CE dolls are the same size as the standard dolls now. Only Draculaura was a different scale but I guess she didn't sell well enough since all collector dolls since just used a standard G1 body.

I kinda want to get her to try and turn her into an Electrified Abbey since the hair is perfect for it. Unfortunately the dress doesn't work as well as the hair so if I ever do this I'll be making a new outfit.

If you do get her and don't want her outfit or shoes, just the doll, and they are the same size as the standard (G1 or G2) dolls, let me know.  Maybe we can work something out. :)

I picked up 2 outfits complete with shoes & accessories:  One from Sweet Screams Abbey (I didn't care for her faceup), and one from reboot Party Abbey, for the same reason.

Amanita could deffo fit in this line since it's garden themed.  Maybe she's too "dark" and scary?  :blink:

Stacie made her debut in 1990, and was out for a few years with several types of dolls and friends.  Then she disappeared for a while, and later on (not sure when) made a comeback.  I have always liked Stacie, she's cute and fun. 
Note: Stacie shouldn't be confused with Stacey, Barbie's friend from the late 60s thru early 70s.  She was Barbie sized.

ReversedUser has a good thought there....the Wolf family is like the monster version of Barbie's! LOL

Customs / Re: Evil's customs (new body for Daring, Kala)
« on: February 25, 2017, 10:55:20 AM »
Kala is still legless, but my budget Daring has a new body!
If anyone is curious all you need to give Daring a little bit more movement
is (cutie) Ken Fashionistas body. Colour match and proportions are perfect!


Love this idea!  Just curious, is Daring now taller than the other EAH guys?

Because the set is aimed at small kids who don't care about articulation?
or to make the dolls a wee bit sturdier? Children tend to lose parts or accidentally break them, at least Dracula can't lose his hands now?

I understand all of that, but even the old budget MH dolls had knee joints.  It's not that hard to give them to the siblings. 
Another thing I noticed is that the sibs' hands seem slightly larger than they should be.  Just my observation.

And again this is JMO but when I was 4 years old, I wanted my dolls to be able to bend their knees and arms.  In fact I had a Barbie clone who was jointed and made of plastic.  And this was back in 1969.

I personally love Ghouls Rule and DDG Abbey. Those are my 2 faves.

I live in the Albany, NY area.  I don't have easy access to Target or TRU since I don't have a car, but I did go to Target a few weeks ago.  They had slim box Electrified, Shriekwrecked budget, and the first wave reboot sigs.  As for EAH they had the Birthday Ball dolls minus the wrist articulation, and I think maybe one or 2 Archery dolls, with no wrist articulation. Also had Jillian and possibly Nina, but no Meeshell, whom I wanted another of since mine has really bad wonk.

Walmart is some better.  They have all the Electrified (slimline and deluxe), the Emoji-ghouls, the budget fearleaders, and one or two Shriekwrecked. I saw WTMH Frankie also hiding in back as well as several Party Hair Draculauras.  We never got Ghouls' Beast Pet around here, and I don't know where they put the clearance dolls as they tend to move them.  They always sell out quickly.

I know Rite Aid in downtown Albany has ONE MH doll, sleepover (?) Lala but they want $20 for her and she's not worth that much to me.

I don't get why people expect the little sisters to be articulated. Chelsea isn't articulated and MTM Barbies are even more articulated than MH. The thing is little sibling dolls are often skewed towards younger kids and younger kids break fragile elbow and wrist joints. I still think they are cute and a cooler alternative to the Barbie sister packs.

I know for me (and I'm only speaking for myself) MH spoiled me in that I was able to get dolls with a wide range of articulation for a low price.  I understand why they didn't articulate the siblings, but I think they would be cooler if they had *some* articulation, like knee and elbow joints. 

Is the hand-shaped chair new, or recycled?

I was looking at some of the pics from Toy Fair, and it's hard to tell but it looks like Lala's dad will be unarticulated.  In fact, I noticed all of the Monster Family dolls have little to no articulation.   Sad too, because I loved the idea of little siblings.  MH is being geared more and more to little girls with gimmicks like family dolls, the garden dolls like Treela with her expanding branches, etc.  Just my opinions.

Michael's had a sale on select beads...50% off...so I found some cute ones that I'm going to glue onto the sides of my new glasses to sort of "bling" them up.

I know for me it was the Freaky Fusion core ghouls.  I remembered seeing them and thinking, "ehhhh they're too weird for me."  But then a couple years later, I got a FF Dracubecca and fell in love with her!  It was like someone took the scales off my eyes and showed me how cool they are!  Now I finally have all of them and they are all quirky cool. ;)

Fakie Nefera. :)  She actually doesn't look too bad, but she's not the correct height.  The one I got has an arm missing and the joints don't work, so I'll probably just get a regular Nefera body for her.

I hope to see Ghoulia return, but if she doesn't, I will cherish my "classic" Ghoulia.  I have just about every release of her...she and Cleo are my 2 faves.  It looks like now Mattel has some MH dolls that are more for little girls, and some that are more for older girls/adults. 

The minis are cute, and Ghoulia deserves to be part of it!  Cleo needs her!

Would love to see EAH at the fair, but not counting on it since sales haven't been good and only a few stores carry them. 

Not into the DCSHG, but I'm glad if they're doing well.

Congrats! I don't know why, but Wydowna fakies can be found in mass quantity on eBay, Aliexpress, Taobao, and apparently, Wish. ;)  Wish some of our other OOAK ghouls could be found in fakie form that easily.

Speaking of fakies (again), I purchased a Nefera fakie whose joints don't work according to the seller.  I think she is the same size as regular fakies, bc I recall seeing pics of her on Alibaba with other fakies and standing at the same height.

« on: February 14, 2017, 11:25:40 AM »
This goes back to the 1990s....back in the day when the short-lived cartoon series TigerSharks was on, I wanted figures of all the characters, but it wasn't popular enough for them to make them I guess. 
I don't know if anyone remembers it.  They were part of a Saturday morning series called "The Comic Strip."

Of course I still want dolls of MH characters like Johnny Spirit, Eyera, Jacko Lantern, and other mansters.  We have so many ghouls, and they need guys to flirt with or fight over. LOL

Monster Discussion / Re: First Day of School Wave 2
« on: February 14, 2017, 02:43:42 AM »
I agree.  Clawdeen has a little more sass this time, altho I still don't like the bigger eyes.  I also compared wave 2 of these dolls with wave 1, and wave 1 reboot Frankie has brown-ish bottom lower lashes and eyeliner, while wave 2 has black.  Also wave 2 Cleo's eyes are almost the same size now as her classic (pre-reboot) version.  And Lagoona in this wave is just adorable.  I can see myself getting them all, swapping out bodies on Cleo and Clawdeen first tho. LOL
