Monster Discussion / Re: MH presence at Toy Fair 2019?
« on: July 11, 2019, 01:01:14 AM »
I feel like any MH reboot might have a stronger focus on blind bag style collectables, considering how popular those are these days (especially those LOL Surprise dolls)

But yeah, I don't expect MH to be revived anytime soon, probably it will be revived when girls find paranormal stuff "cool" again like they did when the first series came out.

Music Class Cleo. G2 Dolls beyond electrified never made it to Australian stores.

I also regret not picking up Treesa when I lived in the UK.

Buy/Sell/Trades / LF: Music Class Cleo

Hi there! I'm looking for the Music Class Cleo doll, full set including Harp.

I'm also looking for nudes/baits of any of the fully articulated G2 Cleo dolls, as well as Treesa and Kelpie (just Kelpie)

For me, it's:

  • Some of the new face-ups. While most of the times I really did not like the softer faceups for the older characters (Especially for Clawdeen and Cleo... oof), for some characters, in particular Draculaura and Lagoona, the bigger, softer faces made more sense.
  • The molded on body details. I actually love Cleo's bandages and Lagoona's scales and Clawdeen's fur, it brings a lot more life to their characters. I'm not too fond of Frankie's stitches, but that's mostly because the details are unpainted when they should be
  • The Shriekwrecked line was fantastic
  • Rayth is a cutie and I wish he got a nice doll.
  • Moanica was a pretty great character. I also like Kelpie and Treesa too.
  • The sturdier bodies were nice. Didn't have to worry about breaking them as much.
  • The SDCC '17 Ghoulia and Cleo 2-pack is my absolute fave of all the SDCC collector dolls. Zomby Gaga was great as well
  • Speaking of Cleo, I think her Ballerina and Music Class dolls are really pretty... Granted after they have been re-bodied onto an articulate G2 Cleo doll (I feel the same way about that big hair Draculaura doll, who is one of my fave dolls ever once I stuck her onto an Electrified Lala bod)

Quill Talyntino, Rayth, Gory Fangtell, Johnny Spirit and Seth Ptolemy were the first to come to mind to me

A shame, there are a few dolls I wanna get though (Treesa, Music Class Cleo, Ballerina Cleo and the Upcoming Hoodie Lala and Tea Party Lagoona + maybe Ari Antoinette), but I guess it would be online Int'l imports for those.

Apparently Toy Fair 2018 has put the cap on MH, saying it'll end after everything in the pipeline is cleared out

I've only recently come back from London to Australia, haven't had the time to look around much for new dolls (I really wanna check out Toymate tho), but it seems nowhere has any MH dolls left anymore, or if they do it's straggling stock. Best offering for any new dolls of interest would be amazon I guess.

Charlestown Square Myers in Newcastle had a bunch of Shoppies and some Kuu Kuu Harajuku tho

I'm really digging that Draculaura and Lagoona. I like the entire Tea Party line, but considering they don't sell new MH lines in Australia anymore, if I can only get one, I'll get Lagoona.

The character in the Nutcracker is the Mouse King. A rat king is.. not the same, lol.

Yeah, I know about actual rat kings, but Mouscedes's personality and her love of dancing indicates she's based more off the Mouse King than a "Rat King".

She doesn't have a mess of tails, for one

I really like that Cleo's faceup, her accessories and her hair but the dress and moulded tights is... :/

I might rebody her and scrap the dress and either buy a custom dress or get an older dress for her (after I budget for Treesa and Music Class Cleo + A Reboot Cleo to rebody her with)

Wait, wouldn't Mouscedes be a good fit for this line? Considering she canonically loves dancing and her Rat King father is implied to be the same as the Rat King from The Nutcracker?

Honestly, back home (Sydney, Aus), it's not lookin too peachy for MH. Stock has pretty much stagnated; the only trickles we get of new
dolls are the major lines (and sparsely distributed at that), shelf spaces for the line is constantly shrinking with some stores completely devoid of MH now when there used to be at least some and MH dolls everywhere  are shelf sitters (the store I used to work for even  had G&B dolls still in stock!)

I think they've just... cut Australia entirely as a market. Or at least it feels like it

And I'm smad because the one reboot doll I REALLY wanted - Music Class Cleo - never came there.

Can confirm. Haven't seen any new stock since Electrified landed, and that line is already in the Reject Shop for half price. No sign of the new siblings or the fairy line, etc.

I'm not keen on the reboot and likely wouldn't buy much of it, but I am sad to see the brand disappearing entirely. The only store with decent amounts of stock is TRU, and they've "clearanced" everything that they are selling (eg: knocked $5 off and will probably ship it back to the distributor at the end of the month). And their stock is still maybe two dolls per release, through half a dozen releases, and a slew of the two-packs and ILF Iris and Wydowna. So maybe 30 boxes all-up?

The aisle that used to be all MH and EAH is now a tiny sliver of MH, no EAH at all, a bunch of Miraculous Ladybug, a couple of MC2 dolls, the dregs of their Shibajuku Girls stock, and the opposite side is now 100% frozen. It's very sad. I only really go there for Black Series figs, now.

Yeesh. I better get off my butt and try to get Treesa and the bug pixie girls while I'm here in London then.

Hello! I'm looking for my latest grail doll of Music Class Cleo, a doll that has never seemed to arrive anywhere but the US. If anyone has this doll for sale and is willing to ship international, please contact.

Has Clawdia shown up yet? Outside of Clawd and Nefera, I can't recall any of the other siblings translating over to the G2 line

(And Nefera only because the Sugar and Scream set with Amanita was clearly a re-purposed G1 set)

Cripes? 60 bucks for shipping to the UK on top of the 40 buck dolls? That;s highway freakin robbery right there.


And not including the import duty which with high end shipping rates would mean that the $60 was factored into the value of the item, meaning the VAT on import would be calculated as if the dolls were retailed/worth $100 rather than $40, making the amount higher, probably about another $30 on top of that. So $130ish overall to order them direct from Mattel to the UK. It really isn't a benefit to have the option there :/

Sheeze Louise

Well, If any of you stateside folks can help a friend out, please do. I really do need this 2pack

The Poundland near me has the FdC Rochelles for 15 quid. I also found some leftover stock Frostina Sprinkles Novi Stars at Entertainer for 6 pounds.

Though, has Music Class Cleo been found anywhere?

I'm currently living in London atm and found 2 Frostina Sprinkles at Entertainer for 6 pounds and a few of the FdC Rochelles from 15 pounds at Poundland.

If any Aussies are looking for them, HMU.
