Sonic Mania comes out tomorrow and I'm practically vibrating with excitement! I've preemptively apologized to my doll display because that Sonic statue is getting center stage probably forever.

Not to mention that Mania being released means they can start putting out more info about Sonic Forces. Which is...very much needed right now.

Oh man this is tough but uh

1) pair of shoes - Sig Ashlynn/Sig Ginger/Sig Apple/Sig Holly/SDCC Cedar
2) outfit - SDCC Cedar/Sig Lizzie/Sig Briar
3) other accessory - Sig Cerise's basket/BB Rosabella's glasses/Thronecoming Cupid's earrings
4) hairstyle - Sig Lizzie/WtW Raven/Sugarcoated Ginger
5) piece of furniture - The entirety of the Hat-tastic Tea Party set, especially the tree table and chair

In terms of G1 characters I'm holding out for Scarah, Robecca, and Gigi. Besides those three I just want a little figurine set of the backgrounder squad. They don't have to be articulated or to scale or anything but I want them to be accurate to the CGI models.

Also where's our third Moanica? I want one that I can't live without.


I love this one! I'm also kind of conflicted about her official outfit and I think it's because of how her bodysuit is mostly unbroken. Those huge spaces in the belt/cage don't quite work for me but putting something under it might.

Great job Wardah! I've been wondering if something like this was possible ever since I saw someone describe the pegs as being "too long".

What tools did you use? How did you heat the hands/arms?

I was prepared to be completely indifferent but EMPEROR'S NEW GROOVE!!!!!!!!

That line was such a huge surprise for me. Didn't even think that was on their radar.

Hoping this means we get more "obscure" Disney movies. Like Atlantis or Treasure Planet.

Seconding this so hard. Everyone likes to poke fun at the POPs but I love how they help properties get merch that otherwise wouldn't.

Also if Atlantis figures happen I want a glowy/opaque "heart of Atlantis" variant for Kida

 A thought just hit me: the silhouette suggests that she's holding a purse. Static body + solo release + extra accessories sounds like the Lots of Looks line to me.

Her arms are so skinny though, I'm really betting on her being Kelpie/Alivia size

What are the chances that's Packlyn and not Howleen, I would hate to see some giant fan-rage storm if it turns out to be another non-Howleen sibling...

Oh no you're right. There is another trademark that hasn't been filled. She has a flopped ear though that would be so mean of them. I'll be in the bomb shelter if you guys need me.

Howleen's finally back!

Judging from her arm placement she doesn't have much articulation. This posits a question: Is Howleen still 14 and her first reappearance is a $7 no-joints budget? Or has she been aged down to 11/12 so she can be in a troupe with Kelpie and Alivia?

Also who wants to bet her hair is still pink and mostly straight.

Huh, I was wondering why the non-removable body wasn't being rolled out all at once but they both have them here so that's moot.

The 2 pack is cute but I probably won't buy it. I'm just thrilled that dolls are being released at all. This seems to pattern match the release of the Winning Werewolves pretty well, so should we be expecting another doll? Maybe that Toralei mentioned in the description of Frankie's playset is the the single release like Venus.

I love her hair blend and I like how she seems to be bluer than Frankie. I don't know why but I was expecting the grill to be more colorful? When have MH's playsets ever conceded to realism (hi Draculaura's pink oven)

I guess the theme for the Stein family is a barbecue, that's pretty cute actually and oddly #relatable. Tomorrow we'll find out which is the Kelpie aged one and then that'll leave the other name for the separate release. I hope they're pretty.

I agree that the dress in the OP is more than likely a mock up of Cleo's dress, so it's yet to be seen whether or not this is a full fledged ballet themed line or just a slightly more extravagant "Dance Class" with the styles doled out to different characters. I'm cool with either honestly.

She's so CUTE I could honestly die. When she goes on super clearance she's as good as mine (unless someone wants to split the set).

Ngl I actually really like her. Her makeup is pretty and she has a lot of accessories. That's huge for what we've been getting lately. Also this sows the seeds for a ballerina Frankie and I need that more than I need air in my lungs tbh.

Pet minis sounds adorable!

Monster Discussion / Re: Which, to you, was the best multipack?
« on: June 27, 2017, 08:14:48 AM »
I don't think I've ever actually bought a 4-pack, I considered "Pack of Trouble" but they disappeared before I could get the money together.

Everything else though...

Favorite 2-pack: Comet Crossed Couple - Absolutely gorgeous in every way. I love what a cute mirror it provides to the original Cleo/Deuce pack from back in the day. The colors are so rich and the accessories are super creative. I adore them.

Favorite 3-pack: Fierce Rockers by nature of being the only 3-pack I've ever bought shhh. I adore how unique each of the characters look amongst their other releases. The atypical blue in clawdeen's hair, that bright lime green on jinafire, venus having both sides of her head shaved. They're gr8

Favorite 5-pack: Maul Monsteristas full stop. Everyone has unique hair and makeup and we get an underutilized character in Invisibilly.

Holy Cow they look AMAZING. I don't know if I'll pick these up, but I'm considering it very very much.
They look great!

... if it's a Mattel Shop exclusive, how would an international peep go about acquiring it? Do we have experience from past exclusives?

IIRC, Finnegan Wake was a Mattel Shop exclusive. He was available in stores internationally.

Oh gosh this is a pretty Frankie! I might snatch these two up when they go on super clearance.

I'm worried if there aren't any SDCC dolls that they won't have any panels or previews like they usually do. It would suck if we had to wait to find out about new dolls until they popped up on amazon or store shelves.

There's always Toy Fair but yeah this is my biggest worry too :(.

I know SDCC exclusives are a pain in the butt for most collectors, but even when I'm not interested I was glad they existed as a kind of through-line between the adult collectors and the brand. I suppose dolls like the Draculaura/Skelita/Abbey are meant to fill the void but it still feels off.
