Maul Monsteristas had me sorely tempted to keep all of the dolls despite only getting it for Invisibilly. It was the best 5 pack ever so of course distribution on it was terrible.

I made a video analyzing the sales from 2010 until the reboot! I know that doesn't help with the sales currently, but I do know they're VERY poor (hence why Mattel said they're cancelling MH by 2018 or whatever). By the end of the year, we'll have detailed sales reports and press releases to poke into for this year's sales~

When did Mattel say next year is Monster High's last year?

I'm not an "articulation snob" but nothing annoys me more than articulated knees but no elbows. I only really display my dolls standing so the knees don't benefit me but articulated elbows just make them more lively than straight arms.

So that Cleo and Ghoulia set is a Mattel Shop exclusive instead tho the timing and the quality level make me suspect that they were originally supposed to be at SDCC. I hope this isn't because Mattel decided not to have any kind of Monster High presence at all at SDCC. I'd have liked to know what Mattel has planned for this holiday season. Oh well I guess we just have to keep stalking amazon and other store sites and hope that if people find new stuff in stores they post it online.

I dunno why people are calling them G2 Venus bodies when they don't have the molded vines she has. I think they should be called permanent hand bodies. I kinda understand why since the hands are lost so much by kids. I just wish they found a better way besides just increasing the peg sizes because it doesn't look great. I'll probably get used to it but still. And it makes me a little sad that the hands are permanent now. Does this mean the end of tight sleeves since there is no way to get them over the hands?

I'm probably the only one here who wishes she did have molded wrappings. Oh well hopefully the outfit is stretchy.

Since the weekend of the 19th is when SDCC is I wouldn't be surprised if it is available there as well.

Thanks for the heads-up!! Unfortunately mine only had Cleo (literally there were like 5-6 Cleos on the shelf -_-) but ah well, better luck next time ;) I agree, it does look like they have the G2 Venus bodies..

I'm positive the bodies themselves are the same but they changed the joint pieces. I imagine the new joints are more sturdy but the gappyness isn't pretty. The unarticulated ones actually look better.

I'm more dissapointed in myself for how cute I think Frankie is here, but I'm not buying an unarticulated two pack and a normal frankie just to get her with a nice body :really:

At least you can get articulated bodies second hand. Thrift stores are full of them.

I bought an MH doll from someone over the weekend, she has an 8 year old daughter, so I asked how she likes the new dolls...lady said her daughter doesn't like the new (reboot) dolls, she prefers the edgy/weird ones more.

Age makes a lot of difference. As I was walking out of Walmart recently I saw a little girl that looked around 5-6 wearing a Rainbow Dash jacket and happily clutching a budget reboot Draculaura.

11
I dunno but it seems doll space has been going down in general. TRU used to have a whole aisle devoted to Barbie but now she's sharing the space with MH and EAH. Like I think MH is doing okay considering the fashion doll market has been in a slump right now. I think the reduction in number of releases could actually be a way to help the brand survive.

The packaging changes weren't to save money but to be more "sustainable".  Even tho just producing the dolls themselves isn't exactly a "green" process.

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.

Thanks everyone.  I appreciate the PM offers to take my dolls.  I've already gotten rid of all of them.
  I was going to keep a couple but something inside me just said to get rid of them all and get it over with.
 Honestly, it did break my heart some, because I felt like I was getting rid of my children in a way but I didn't do much with them except take them out of the box and display them.  But, I did look at them a lot and appreciate them.  I was going to save first day of school Draculaura but I felt like if I didn't get rid of them all I would never be able to get rid of them.  I'm not sure if that makes sense.  I still have the urge to get some and I even thought about getting the first day of school dolls since even though they aren't G1 dolls they still have the essence of G1 dolls, not sure if that makes sense either.


If you ever plan to get rid of any other toys or dolls lemme know since I collect much more than just MH.

We all have those times when we fall out of love with something.

I still love Monster High, just not crazy about the reboot.  To me it feels like they should call it "Little Girl High" since the clothes. faces and themes seem more like kid stuff. Little kids 5 to 8 years old. (All JMO)
I'm sure there are ppl here who would also be happy to take any dolls off your hands.

And some of us might even be local enough to pick them up.

It looks like a third party seller tbh.

I wonder if the MH ones are going to be a pack or are going to appear in the Series 3 blind boxes.

I found the Wave 4 single figures in a Walmart yesterday. I think this might be the first in store sighting of these.

I have an extra Nefera.

How sad does your life have to be to fake doll pictures?  :annoyed:

I think the original pic might have been someone's guess how the reboot Ghoulia would look and someone else found the picture somewhere (probably stolen without credit) and thought it was real.

What if the Ghoulia is a crossover with something else like last year's Frankie was and Cleo is a separate doll?
