I've seen something online like those for Lalaloopsy. I wonder if it's the same company.

Yes, they look like the ones I get on Amazon. Needs to sit at the biggest part of their hips though since it's bigger than regular MH stands.

Do you think maybe the clips could be reshaped to fit better with heat? There are a few dolls that have a dress shape that would look awkward clipped at the hip instead of the waist.

It's the German catalog anyways. I'll be concerned if the US one is as sparse.

At least it confirms the bug girls at 13 cm are even smaller than the toddlers which are 14 cm.

I just got mine off of eBay 3rd party sellers that gaurentee returns if needed

It's just nice to be able get them for retail price instead of paying more to pad the pockets of third party sellers. I wonder what Mattel plans to do with the extras if they don't sell out? Do like they did last year and send a bunch to youtubers for sponsored giveaways?

Trader Support / Still not shipped!
« on: April 17, 2017, 07:31:31 PM »
I managed to get a doll I was missing for a very reasonable price off eBay but it's been 5 days and she still hasn't shipped. Should I wait or should I do something and if so what? I'm worried I'm not going to get her.

Yep. Cheerhexing would have been a perfect opportunity to put dolls in miniskirts and give us another Faybelle :(

Now now, we all know they would have done Mini-Dresses, since you know a 2 part outfit would be just too much effort for Mattel to do.  Although I always image EAH cheerhexing outfits to be the standard pleated cheer leading skirt, with a sleeveless crop top, and I usually see it in Blue and Silver.

The swan 2 pack would be great to see done. Oh Mattel, why do you not look at what the fans want? Why much you always cheapen everything?

Wouldn't Cheerhexing end up like the MH Fearleading budgets? Honestly would have rather had those than more Ballet dolls tho.

With the Mulan movie I heard they are mostly changing things that the Chinese audiences didn't like in the orginal animated movie. Mostly because these days international audiences areally very important for the success of a movie along with if you are doing a movie about China you kinda don't want to offend real life Chinese people. And yeah there's already the Chinese version but it's in Chinese and most mainstream Americans don't want to have to read subtitles during the whole movie.

Did the ponies have candy in the package? The flocking is intriguing.

Yup! I'll bet they're imported out of Europe, or at least heavily inspired by similar lines, like Sweetbox and Monstars - I think these lines are trying to appeal to Kinder Egg buyers as well as kids who collect blindbox toys.

I think they probably get them from the same source as some European toy candy thing since they don't have the crazy markup imported stuff usually does.

I found this on instagram.

Also I found some flocked pony figures at TRU but it seems the company also makes a line of little figures called "Ivy School" that are kinda MHish.

I'd still rather have a sister for Frankie than her mom. And I'd prefer her to be around Kelpie's age than another one of the little toddler ones. Poor Kelpie needs some friends her own age. Perhaps her and a Wolf sibling in a 2 pack?

I'm hoping it's a sibling for Frankie and that maybe we will also get siblings for Cleo.

Is anyone having more trouble than usual finding fakies in stores? I've been to three different Dollar Generals and it seems that all the Gothic Girl dolls have vanished. The only one I saw was a lone fakie Clawdeen. I'm getting worried because I love customizing the Gothic Girl line and I don't want to have to pay $12 on eBay for a doll that's supposed to cost $3, so I need to know if she's disappeared from your local stores or if she's still around and I just had bad luck.

Unfortunately it seems creepy stuff has fallen out of favor with the fakie companies. Around Christmas all I was able to find was Barbie type superheroes and princesses and fashion models. Oh and some weird Equestria Girl wannabes. It really makes me sad because I kinda liked the Midnight Magic dolls. I hope this year they at least try something similar to Shoppies if they don't attempt any more creepy dolls.

I finished watching it a little bit ago on DVD.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

The only thing I can think of is that doll releases do not follow canon.

Oh dang, the pattern on that Garden Ghouls Toralei dress is gorgeous! I still hate that it's only on the front, though. I've heard she's supposed to be based on a Tiger Swallowtail?

She's the only Garden Ghoul who only has it on the front so I think it was done for "fashion" reasons. Maybe it looked too busy without a bit of solid black to break it up?

The same person posted another picture of Cleo with a different outfit on. Notice how her gem is raised? Oh goodness, I love that. I know there have been people saying it could be a custom (and it could be, you never know) but the fact that there are two very factory style outfits that look like they might fit her, and the person who has her is based in Indonesia AND has no indication of actually doing customs kinda points to her being official. Plus she might be on an EAH body because the person only has the head. It's too early to say SDCC for sure but :shrug:


I think that dress is Garden Ghouls Toralei.

Yeah I've seen that same case before where the box art doesn't match the actual doll or in other cases My Little Pony.  But, if they had just kept her hair the same I wouldn't have minded at all.  G2 Abbey looks almost the same as G1 Abbey and I really loved that outfit on her.  Like I said they didn't have hardly any purple and blue streaks and her hair wasn't the silvery white it was in G1.  I know it's a reboot but still most of the G1 to G2 dolls have at least their signature look it's just made differently.

They switch up the hair on non signature dolls all the time tho.

As for the white could her hair have originally been Kanekalon? I think I heard somewhere they aren't doing doll hair anymore so if her hair was Kanekalon then Mattel could have been forced to change it. I'm pretty sure that's also why Venus has been having a darker green.

I saw Abbey today and I kept debating on getting her, because I really wanted her but what made me put her back was her hair.  Instead of pure white, almost silver it was a weird white and she had hardly any pink and blue streaks in her hair, despite the back of the box picture which shows her with Abbey silver-white hair and tons of blue and pink streaks.  I was disappointed.  I checked to make sure it wasn't just that particular doll that received less blue and pink streaks but I checked the one other doll I saw and it has the same thing.

I think it's just a case of the actual doll not matching the art. The art shows her as having the same usual 3 colors as always but the stock pics of the doll show her as having only blue and purple streaks.

If only the fake fur was white she would have been perfect.

Eh, still like her, she just needs different shoes. Then again I love crazy over the top stuff sometimes  ^^;

I didn't like the shoes before but seeing she has matching streaks in her hair makes me like them more now.

I'm going to have to add Back to School to the Least category. Some of the dolls are nice but the line itself has so many issues. First the budgets and the deluxe dolls don't even have the same theme. It's like they took a random budget line and gave them school accessories.

Now that you mention that, it does!  It's like they just threw together a few things and said, "Here's our back to school line.  The kids won't notice that nothing goes together,  they're too little." XD

The budgets could have even started out as a wave 2 of the archery dolls but they decided they didn't want to bother with making the needed new molds for them.

It also almost seems like the Deluxe ones started out as a kind of Freaky Fusion "Inspired By ______" thing. Madeline's crown is very Briar as are the roses in her dress pattern, Meeshell has locks on her shoes and dress which is a Blondie thing, and Holly looks a little edgier than usual.

Thanks, I didn't think it was.  It's most likely Barbie I'd guess.  I thought the shoes were male CAM, but they come with sneakers.

I don't think it's Barbie either. Most the Barbie ones I've seen have a strap that goes all the way around the head.
