We've done this for five years now and even though MH's future seems to be gloom, I'm feeling nostalgic and would like to continue this tradition and remember the joy MH brought during 2018.

We've done this for four years now  :) 
I now the reboot has changed the atmosphere for some of our collector's feelings and even to the MH Arena itself. Some of us don't come here as often as we used to, and there's little releases keeping the line alive, but still wanted to take the time to share our moments of joy with MH during 2017.

Brags / Christmas Goodies! Come on and brag your xmas haul!
« on: December 27, 2017, 04:05:58 PM »
Please share with us your Christmas goodies!
They can be gifts from family, friends and of course gifts we got for ourselves :D

Fiance brought the following dollies that have been on my wishlist for a while

The big surprise was this beauty! I loved the character from the movie and was looking for a funko with no luck as they haven't make one and Fiance Santa left this under the tree wohoo!

I got myself a Blackfire that is still in box (shame on me) and I adopted a beautiful custom that is still making his way home. Regular mail is so slow in this season. I really hope he gets here before my holidays are over, as it's harder to make it to the post office while working 4 counties away -.-

Sister gave me some beautiful shoes, a chocolate and a Lego building cup.

While my sister gave my daughters shoes, make up brushes, wallets and leggins, they also received from me MLP Power Ponies and a Princess Celestia statue for my younger daughter and LadyBug & CatNoir for my eldest one. And  $ so they can get themselves clothes, shoes and other practical stuff they want.

Sister got a maternity blouse and babysitter coupon, brother in law got Star Wars collectible beer mugs and niece got a Coverall, gloves and a baby's piano

Fiance got an Age of Ultron Thor, BS K2SO & an R2D2 memorabilia.

Off Topic / Fuel Prices - Mexico
« on: January 06, 2017, 09:05:11 PM »
We received this memorandum at work on Tuesday

There is growing concern over deregulation of fuel in Mexico, and the short term impact it is having on the price of a liter of fuel.  Itís causing issues at some of the border crossings, and, with pricing on some moves. For more information, the below article is a good summary of what is actually happening

Long story short, there was an increase on the price of fuel and there were protesters all over the country blocking gas stations, government sites and before we knew it border crossing bridges, highways, ports and wherever there are protests there come riots (here, most of the riots are sponsored by government funds to discredit the pacific strikes/protests and create fear among the communities).
Stores where vandalized and robbed on several cities.
There were protest's marches/rallies yesterday in my city that ended not exactly clean and there will be some more tomorrow. I had plans to go shopping or just go out to relax and enjoy the weekend, but seems I'll get to do that at home as I live near downtown, a couple of blocks from the state government building where most of the protesters assemblies take place, so even though we are safe here, it's not a good idea to go out as returning home can prove challenging as avenues/streets get blocked.
I hope next week gets better though I still wish the gas prices to go back down  :(

Off Topic / Got a text from dad today...
« on: October 06, 2016, 08:21:28 PM »
I was happily working at the office when I received a text from dad stating that something had happened at the house and that he was sending pictures shortly but to be preppared.
Warning, the images you are about to see might be too strong for the weak of heart. Viewers discretion is advise.

My dollies! T_T by Nassib09, on Flickr

I laughed when he told me that no lawyer would represent the cat. There were serious felony charges and worse because one of the injured was a merman in a wheelchair.

He said he would put the dolls in a bag for me, so i could rearrange them when I got home.

This is what I found:

Ok, what I really want to share was a Comic Cover that boyfriend did (I helped! Only painted 1 doll and the skin of the other, although he did all the shadows and the hard stuff), but decided to include more doodles we've done so it's not one thread for just one drawing.

Brags / Sonata Dusk for my Daughter - Thank you Hefty!
« on: May 07, 2016, 07:52:13 AM »
I've been meaning to get Sonata Dusk's equestrian girl doll for one of my kids, because she's her favorite character and had wanted her for a long while. But the doll never made it to Mexico (and if it did it's long gone)
I was chatting with Hefty and we were discussing several MLP/Equestrian dolls and their inventory in my stores and his, and I ask him if the pack was still out over there and we agree to split the pack.
He got an awesome deal and then decided to send it as a gift for my kid, for what I can't thank him enough!
We received the package this week, and I ask my daughter (who is actually a teenager) to open the package for me, as my hand was acting up and I also wanted to take pictures and couldn't do both things.
She agreed to help and she was so surprise when she open the last wrap and release the cardboard holding her precious doll that she cried! She actually was all teary with joy that couldn't even speak while I told her the whole story.

Thank you so much Topher for doing this possible
And thank you all for starting, keeping and making this space of joy in the internet

Buy/Sell/Trades / Monsteristas 5pack (international Shipping)
« on: August 09, 2015, 01:44:08 PM »
A couple of things to note
I will ship international of course though I'm only certain I can ship to the US, Canada, UK and New Zealand, for any other country I'll have to do a bit of research to make sure or confirm estimate times and customs policies.
Prices are in pesos because the final USD price changes per daily exchange rate, but it's around 17-19 pesos per USD. I take only paypal, so you can use their exchange rate tool :)
I have cats, so please be aware if you have allergies.
Smoke free home
PM for offers

Fanging at the Maul 5pack 989.00 Pesos (197.80 per doll) -there are season sales in some stores so I can look for the best offer but I can only guarantee that it will not be higher than that initial price-
I can split the packs but I have to make sure there are buyers for all the dolls as I don't want to end up with a bunch of unsold dolls.

Now the shipping there are several options:
Confirmed for debox pack including as much artwork as possible:
Expedite ground shipping to the US with tracking & ETA of 5-7 weekdays 550.00 pesos +50 for handling
Ground Shipping to the US with tracking & ETA 2 months 200 pesos + 50 for handling

I can research for other type of shippings, but the faster you go, the costier it will be. Also if you want it in box, the price o any of the ones above will rise per the dimensions.

I think I can still get GA Robecca, International Haunted Spectra, and SU Kitty, but will have to confirm prices first in case someone is interested.

I rather sell instead of trade because I know what a pain it is for international shipping from the US (international priority Mail has tracking # within the US but is not traceable once it gets to Mexico, so it has to be  Express Mail or Global Expedited Shipping so I can trace it and make sure it's not stuck in customs or in someone else's house  :( :( ), but if you don't mind, then this is my want list:
Signature Lagoona
Signature Cleo
Manster 2pack
Ghost CAM
Vampire boy CAM

Monster Discussion / Ghoulia in webisodes
« on: March 27, 2015, 07:54:10 AM »
Just got to see this on Facebook and thought to share it here

It's some of Ghoulia's best webisodes along with an intro about her translated by Frankie :)

I spoke with Phobos (also member of this Arena) today. She is currently in Mexico pet personal business but will be heading back to the States around the middle of April, and since I am already trying to get a GA Robecca to another member of this Arena I thought it might be a good time to see if anyone else is interested.
I'm still checking prices to see if she can get her on sale (the peso is 14.98 against US currency) so it's a good time to get her but normal price would be around 28 plus US shipping, but want to try to get her for as best price as possible.
Phobos said she could probably take the one we already discussed and 3 or 4 more, so please let me know if anyone else would be interested either here or by mp.

Image allegedly belongs to the same person that leaked I<3F Iris &  Luna
I hope this is real


Off Topic / New with the left hand
« on: January 16, 2015, 12:37:45 PM »
So, I had an embarrassing accident (I slipped in a slippery wet sidewalk) on Tuesday a small had to call and ambulance because the pain was so disturbing I didn't dare to walk the last 4 blocks to get home.
It turned out I dislocated and fracture my shoulder. It was put back in place in the ER (with no pain medication so I screamed pretty loud) and then immobilized.
I went to my doctor on Wednesday and turns out  I'm looking at 3 to 4 weeks with arm restrained (or whatever the thing is called) and then a bit of time to get it functional again.

I thank my understanding daughters and my boyfriend who even though is deeply scared of hospitals has been an awesome helping hand taking me to all the appointments and handling the paperwork (even offered to take me doll hunting to 1 store per week, and only 1 so I still get enough rest)
People at my office have been great and supportive. We will have several calls each week to handle my area, so even though I'm a bit  stressed, I can still relax enough.
In the meantime time my left hand and I are getting to know and understand each other and boy do we have tons to work on.
So far I thank the auto-corrector that even though it changes 2 words out of 5, at least it gets 3 right in the first try and will also offer handy suggestions.
Eating has proved an interesting task. I'm still deciding if I should use an apron/bib or not :P
I can't change my blouse alone, but can change my jeans for my sweatpants and untie my shoes. Still learning how to tie them back

Any tips for the new temporary lefty? :(

Brags / Birthday Brag! *_*
« on: November 12, 2014, 07:55:17 PM »
So, everything started on Monday when I received a package at work from my awesome aku Phobos!

I opened the box and found:
4 bars of Flavored Dark Chocolate, a cute necklace:
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

And ta tata ta taan!!!
a beautiful Abbey Sweet Screams!
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

At night I had to deal with a promise I had made.
My boyfriend was giving me Manny & Iris as a bday gift, but since I'm a bit too desperate and couldn't wait for my birthday to arrived, he agreed to let me open them and play with them as soon as they arrived, but I had to promise to pack them back and give them to him so he could give them to me at my birthday. So he came that night expecting me to keep my part of the bargain, so I gave him the box with them inside.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I still don't know how he saw right through it. I thought I had been pretty convincing with my how the dolls ended up as 2D once inside the box theory, but he had none of it and I had to repack them with teary eyes  :sad: (which of course didn't work either as I can't pretend fake drama without laughing  :P )

oh, here are my quick and improvised doodles in case you are wondering what are you suppose to be seeing inside of the box.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

So then came my official birthday day (tuesday) and at work I had my desk and area with ballons and Halloween confetti decorations (awesome!  :love: ) and gummies, a book and an individual cake. Had pizza party (more like the prize for our Halloween decoration contest, but my team decided that it was a good oportunity to redeem the prize in my day :) ). Afterwards at home boyfriend arrived with a cheese cake and a present from his mom (a beautiful scarf and a wallet!) See all of the described below (except the pizza or the cheese cake, I was too excited that forgot to take pics) :P
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

And he brought Manny & Iris box all wrapped up again and handed it to me. It weight considerably less, so I immediately told him so, and even told him that I was suspecting he took Manny out to play at his house (with his Batman's collection) and maybe forgot to pack him up again!  :whoa:
And just as I predicted, there was no Manny inside.. nor Iris for the matter, because inside of the outer box what I actually found was my only missing Ghoulia! Sweet Screams!!!!! :freak: :freak: :freak:
Of course he had Manny and Iris hiden and brought them forward afterwards :)
So here is the complete birthday haul (minus the necklace, balloons, cheesecake and half the chocolates  :haha: )!   :green: :hearts: :green: :hearts: :green:

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I have to admit that part of my enthusiasm is because I actually had a great day over all, with my coworkers, friends, family and boyfriend.
But the goodies were a great plus :)

Off Topic / Halloween plans?
« on: October 10, 2014, 02:44:24 PM »
Why do I work in such a normal office T_T
As every year, we are celebrating Halloween, and we have activities which include costumes and decorating our areas.
I was so ready to be a spooky wicked witch or a condemn fallen angel or an evil cursed demon
But nooooo! My team mates just want to dress as cops and technicians and recreate CSI-like atmosphere and decorate as a crime scene
The only interesting option was to play the dead victim T_T

Yes, this is suppose to be a drama. You can pretend to be as shock as I am or pretend to cry with me. I have tissues :p

Any way, what are you preparing for Halloween IRL? Being it at work and at home?
