I swear if the new character isn't the daughter of the Krampus I'm done with Monster High forever.  :biggrin:

I saw the dolls for the first time at Target today. Two Treesas, one of each of the main three dolls, and one Wingrid. After seeing how tiny the pixies are, I now really want Beetrice, but she and Lumina weren't there.

I was wondering if a hinge transplant might be possible, too.

I don't know. That's G1 Elissabat, which definitely wouldn't be her design in her return. I don't think they'd give her Drac's new mold because they never shared one before, but I'd hope she didn't have her red accents, because I liked her darker original doll more. And I know if she comes back, she will have the red because color restraint is minimal now.

Wow...this is a new degree of lazy. If this is what they want to do, I don't expect MH to stay around 'til 2019.

Having been a non-collector for most of G1, I think the main thing separating the groups is the "toy barrier". Before, I never saw the detail and creativity and almost objet d'art quality in the dolls that I do now. I just saw them as (ugly, at the time) toys that had no real merit, despite having been a toy and monster enthusiast all my life.

I wasn't sure where to ask but does anyone know if they made a boo York pharaoh?

No they didn't, even though most people wished that he had been released  :(  Another wasted opportunity by Mattel.

Other than Bloodgood, have there been any adult characters released as dolls up to the reboot?

And since Bloodgood was released with a PONY (lol), I'd put her in a different category. My opinion.  :biggrin:
We got Hexiciah Steam and Dracula, but the former was SDCC and the latter has low articulation.

Seems like it. Although it's missing G2 Howleen, that would be something similar to Alivia and Kelpie
We have received no indication that Howleen is in this line. It's not clear if her body is merely unarticulated but the same, or if it's the new middle-sister size, and she doesn't match the Wolf family theme, unless wave 2 will have a new one. She may be part of something completely different.

I could be wrong but I think that Soulspice was simply asking about all of the siblings that we know of so far, not necessarily the siblings exclusive to the Family line.
I mean unless Howleen turns out to be just another werewolf and not Clawdeen's sister... which, at this point, wouldn't actually surprise me. -_-
I concede, but it's still not confirmed whether she's downgraded to Kelpi and Aliva's age and stature, regardless of where she is.

And no, Clawdia has not been seen. Whisp is technically a sibling, but we haven't seen Gigi and her doll was also a holdover from G1.

Yep, she's a slime monster made in a lab, then given to the circus for a better home. I've had awful luck with her FdC doll, due to the awful hair, but Shriekwrecked has gotten much better feedback for quality. I actually think it's pretty cool that she's casually included in another line. She's being treated like one of the group.

I honestly don't love the official outfit, but part of me feels like this Cleo's too fancy to wear something more casual. I do like the second outfit on her, though, even if the base doll outperforms it.

She could be putting Cushion to sleep?
It's possible, esecially with that bag, but her outfit doesn't match the others'--it's  not sleepwear and it's a different pattern, so unless Packlyn is something different from a bedtime doll, Howleen might not be in this line. I don't think we know enough about her at present to be sure where she fits in with the upcoming releases.

 If she had been pictured next to another doll, it would be much clearer, because we could figure out what body type she's on.

I feel like that logo should be "Frankie" instead of "Barbie".
She probably would enjoy a de-arm bathroom.

You win everything forever. That was amazing.

I just got Fangelica. Not hugely impressed by anything about her (name, hair, colors, articulation), but she's workable. I think getting rid of the collar and painting her wings black should greatly improve her palette of mint/purple to complement Drac's pink/blue.

Monster Discussion / Re: What's made you go "wow, that's so clever"?
« on: July 29, 2017, 10:59:04 AM »
One thing that never really registered with me- these little monster biology lessons they've snuck into some of their dolls. It's like a very subtle form of worldbuilding, that they think their monster interpretations through with such detail.

* River is a teenage reaper with translucent skin through which her bones can be seen. We know reapers to be skeletal, so this implies that reapers in this world lose their skin as they age, becoming total skeletons with maturity.
* Boogeymonsters in this world are shadow creatures, which is perfectly appropriate for the things we fear in the dark. They take on various nightmare forms with magical sand to change their appearance, which is logical and has the amusing effect of making boogeying more like an organized job than natural behavior.
* The younger siblings of Draculaura and Clawdeen/Howleen in the Monster Family line are all much more animalistic than their elders. Of course, at this age, the transformation from humanoid to bat/wolf must be harder, and so their anthropomorphic forms are less human.

And perhaps it's not so clever, but I'm glad they recognized that Medusa is the only one of her sisters with the petrifying curse, and so Viperine doesn't inherit it. Mythology is a big obsession of mine, so that accuracy was appreciated.

So the de Nile family theme is "Cleo being a beleaguered babysitter having to feed her siblings?" That's not quite as happy as beach time, bedtime, or cooking. I know Pharrah has a board game, but it doesn't look like her sister will have much time for it.

Hmm, another solo baby? Maybe that's an additional group in wave 2 on top of the established release pattern.

Do you think Pharrah and Lux have the same body mold? 

I wouldn't be at all surprised if the little kids had gender-neutral body molds, since they're all too young to exhibit any real differences. The tween group (Kelpie, Alivia) doesn't have a male in it yet, but it seems like the girls are femininely shaped to a degree.

And I swear, if we don't see Skelita and a skelebrother in this line, I'm going to be extremely disappointed. She's already marketed heavily in the spinoff merch, why not bring Skelita, a very family-oriented character, back into the main line?

We haven't seen all of the names in the trademarks- none of the babies seem to be on the lists. We didn't see Weredith or Sandy's names before release, so maybe that's a confirmation that Lux is the brother.

EDIT: You know, maybe the younger siblings were found near-death by the de Niles, and then wrapped up to save them, and were adopted into the family. Still a little sad, but perhaps the reason for all these new kids in their family is more heartwarming. We know they'll never explain it, so why not?

Here's a photo showing Pharrah and another baby, named Sandy, from beamonsterhighfan on Tumblr:



Throne high chair!

These are the separate de Nile releases advertised on the back of the main family pack, so does this mean there won't be three kid-siblings? If the lineup is Stitchlyn, Pharrah, and Sandy, then maybe Packlyn is Ms. Wolf? Or maybe there will be four solo siblings this time, and Packlyn is the same size as Pharrah and co.

So that's where the Nefera-fabric dress is from. And, unfortunately, my guess for the wave 2 layout seems to be right, as Cleo is in the same "big sis, brother, baby pack" sitch as Clawdeen's was. Packlyn, Stitchlyn, and Pharrah will probably be the solo releases, and we've seen the "sisters pack" for this wave, too. No parents in sight for now.  :(

I'm interested in the art of Pharrah in the group "photos". She looks interesting, and not like the leak we saw.
Also, I love that the younger siblings have newer bandages. That makes sense, dark though it may be.
