A lot of dolls have been sold.  I will take pictures of what's left later.  Might also add the in box dolls we have back, though those have been going on Mercari.

Haven't bumped this since March.  ^^;

So many dolls I wanted but they never got where I live:

Scaris Cleo and Lagoona pack
I heart fashion dolls
Heath Burns dolls
Ghouls night out pack
Manster pack

 

Different country, I'm guessing?  We didn't live near a Toys R Us, so when we rarely went, I'd make sure to look for exclusives.  Only saw the Scaris 2 Pack once.  Our Walmart got very picky near the end.  We got the Ghouls Night Out pack, only three, I think.  My sister grabbed the best looking pair.  We never even got the Wolf Family 4 Pack here, though the other towns around us did.

I'm Cleo fan and I wanted the Scaris pack so bad, at least where I live all the 5 packs were in stores (except the maul monsteristas) but we never get the 2 packs,so weird.  :shrug:
5 packs weren't so hard to come by, and we went to Target maybe once a month or every two months.  Except Maul Monsteristas of course.  I love Cleo, my sister loves Lagoona, and I always thought it was the cutest two pack.

I was late to the MH collecting party (I primarily collected EAH when I joined this site), but I did manage to snag a few good ones before they completely disappeared from stores. Plus, I feel like there are a lot of people dumping their collections recently since the line is dead, so it hasn't been too hard to start my collection, but now that I've done more research on them I'm finding ones that I'm on the lookout for: the Freak du Chic playset and the Doom and Gloom dolls. It's such a shame that Mattel let the quality of ALL of their toylines go downhill in the last few years, because when you do find one of the older dolls it's very obvious that more care was taken in designing and producing them than even the G2 dolls, let alone what they're peddling in stores now.

EAH was the opposite for me.  I did not get into the line until I saw how gorgeous Duchess was, and yet I passed by every.  single.  rare doll.  Spring Unsprung Kitty, the Fairest on Ice girls, Dexter, Alistair, every single one I saw at least once.  Didn't realize it at the time or click that I'd love the line until basic Duchess.

I just sold my Freak du Chic playset, it was the only FDC we got at our Walmart.  I did actually see it on Mattel's shop for $40 the other day.  I agree, though, that collecting, especially out of box collectors, is not as hard as it once was.  Some have held value, some have skyrocketed that I did not expect to, and others plunged.  Plus, if you're patient enough, you can snag a complete, rare or formerly rare doll, for a great price.

EDIT: Ah, she's on the site, but apparently not for sale at the time unless I've missed an add to cart button.

Ordered the Castlevania Funko Pop set for my sister.  Well, all but Dracula since our dad was able to get him for her.

I saw Gloom and Bloom Jinafire and Cleo once, and thankfully they had good boxes.  but those Target ones were really hit and miss.  We saw Sweet Screams Frankie and Draculaura a couple of times, but only one or twice for Abbey and Ghoulia at Target, though they eventually shelfwarmed Big Lots.

Now that Astranova's been mentioned, I don't think we ever got her playset here.  The only time I recall seeing it was at Toys R Us once.

For the little siblings to be put out presumably to appeal to younger audiences, they surely didn't show up much, did they?  I remember seeing the main three solo release, Lagoona and her little sister two pack, and Cleo with the kids once at Target but whichever one was released solo of Cleo's siblings I never saw.

I don't know how active this topic might be, but the idea for it hit me recently.  Someone on Reddit was asking about the CAM white torso, and I told them I doubt they could find it as it was only available on Mattel's site.  I went browsing, not expecting to find it, and of course now that I'm not collecting MH, they have Gore-geous Accessories Robecca.  I always thought she was really beautiful and never saw her at Big Lots when people were finding her there.  I also, for that matter, never finished collecting Rochelle, Catty, or Cleo due to some of their final releases like Getting Ghostly Rochelle never showing up in the US except maybe one short run and the difficulty in finding I Heart Fashion Cleo and the Costco pack with Boo York Catty.

When I brought up the topic to my sister, her immediate answer was Dawn of the Dance Clawdeen.  While we saw them in box on their first run, our parents did not buy her Clawdeen because she wanted the three pack and they could not justify the price.  She also never saw Dawn of the Dance Lagoona, not even the re-release, or basic Toralei on the shelves.

So, what dolls avoided you?  Which ones did you hunt for but have to give up on or order/trade for online because they just did not pop up in any store around you?

Updated the pictures and lists.  Shipping prices have been changed at the post office, average per one doll is now $4 and even more for additional dolls.

EDIT: My sister is also looking to sell her Shoppies as we haven't been able to get any new ones for the past three waves, wanted to know if anyone was interested.

Our Walmart is rearranging school supplies and shipping, so we came back with a pack of tape refills for 75 cents, 14 shipping boxes at 10 cents each, and six rolls of bubble wrap for 50 cents each.

I think the new release, Gen 2, or reboot, whichever you call it, are bigger or designed differently and won't fit.  It'll be easier to tell the newer ones on Cleo, Clawdeen, Abbey, and Venus because of the molded on wrappings, fur, or vines.  Frankie's molded on stitches might also be on her forearms, but I haven't really looked at her.

It might also be something wrong with the peg if it's an older part on an older doll.  I have a basic Cleo who keeps losing one hand.  No idea why, because it's her actual hand, but it's always falling out.

Got my hands on the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 art book and two Fire Emblem cipher badges I didn't have!  I've got to watch my Azura badge around my sister.

Got several stickers, including a Shoppies set, and some metallic paints for my sister.  I also finished paying for an art commission this weekend.

My sister's Dead Tired Abbey came with two left slippers.  When we contacted Mattel about it, they just sent an entire new one since they did not have slippers laying around to send.  But that was a very long time ago.

Monster Discussion / Re: Dolls that were never released :/

Did they ever actually say the Gaga set was going to be released or was it just that photo? I always assumed it was just a one-off :O

I want to say I recall Mattel saying they were one-off dolls, but I'm not 100% sure.  I remember there being a lot of buzz at the time for Gaga accompanied by a line of little monster ghouls, but then Mattel stepped in and denied they were being made.



I always wanted Drama Class Draculaura, and have no idea why she was never made. 

Then there's the ones that appeared in the specials or cartoons that were never made.  Roller Maze Cleo was a big want for me, but then I was a big Cleo collector.
