MH will always have a special place in my heart so I'll probably stick around and get serious about tracking down my grail dolls and finishing my customs. Just generally enjoying my collection y'know? Getting all the movies and webisodes onto my computer sounds like a good idea too. I never did finish any of the book series, maybe I should get around to that.

I've been getting more into gaming recently which is partially why I haven't been buying so many dolls shhh so I imagine I'll probably fill the void with both the games and their merch. I've really been eyeing some Sonic figurines that are releasing this year, just this past week I found out that a new company is starting to make sonic statues! Not to mention that Project Mc2 and the Shopkins Shoppies are still going strong! I still collect Funko too.

These are so cute omg. Ari's hair is great and I already love this Clawdeen. The hoodie line reminds me of kigurumis, looking forward to whenever the Twyla is found. Even if MH is coming to a close, I appreciate the dedication to new accessories (the cake stuff), even if they're small doses.

Huh, it's so weird to me that this Bunny has green in her hair. I've wanted a Bunny with streaks for actual years :blink:. Too bad it didn't come out during the heyday.

If she ever shows up near me I might buy her and put her head on a sig if I can find one. Maybe give her some bangs.

Every year I have a handful of sources I always check up on:

the Idle Hands blog and flickr

StitchKingdom on tumblr (they're a disney-centric blog, but most toy fairs they kind of go around everywhere)

The aforementioned Darth-alinart (blog here). MyFroggyStuff and TTPM as mentioned earlier are good too.

I'll throw in Lori/Venivididolli for good measure. She's great at compiling relevant info and her blog was a lifesaver last year when I really wasn't up for combing through walk-n-talk videos or flickr albums on my phone.

What was the first EAH doll you purchased this year?
The School Spirit 2-pack! I'd wanted them for years but stuck fast to my 'signatures only' rule. With EAH slowing down considerably I decided to dive in before I missed out.

How many EAH dolls did you add to your collection in 2017?
Just 10! They were all worth it honestly.

What is your favorite EAH doll or playset purchase of 2017?
It's a tie between Courtly Jester (shock of all shocks) and Jillian Beanstalk (my favorite out of the final wave of sigs).
 
What's your favorite EAH photo that you took in 2017?
Still trying to sort out the photobucket thing ^^;

What is your favorite memory of collecting EAH for 2017?
Having as much fun as I did customizing the last few sigs. I was pretty anxious during Hurricane Harvey and having them all to work with reminding me how much I enjoy customizing.

Is there anything else special you want to share about collecting EAH in 2017?
Even though the line seems to be dying down, I had a lot more fun with it this year than in previous. I hope everyone else had as good a time as me

Do you have any EAH resolutions for 2018?
Finish my Epic Winter customs (what are we going on? Two years now? Yikes.) Finish my other basic customs. Maybe, juuuuust maybe get Fairest on Ice Ashlynn for a decent price.

What are you most looking forward to from EAH in 2018?
Polishing up the collection. I have this grandiose plan to give a bunch of characters the new faces and touch up their accessories to the max. Maybe that'll finally happen.

Whew it's been a while since I posted.

What was the first MH doll you purchased this year?
I think it was the first budget dolls of Frankie and Cleo. Bought em at the same time because I was so thrilled they looked okay and had really nice accessories.

How many MH dolls did you add to your collection in 2017?
Around 30 I think? Maybe a little bit more. I did a lot of my shopping in the first half of the year.

What is your favorite MH doll or playset purchase of 2017?
The Maul Monsteristas set for eBay/sale finds. Garden Ghouls Toralei or Party Ghouls Abbey for one bought on the primary market.
 
What's your favorite MH photo that you took in 2017?
I'm really proud of all my vday pics. I still haven't found a decent way to get those back up without photobucket unfortunately :annoyed:

What is your favorite memory of collecting MH for 2017?
I got TWO of my grail dolls!!! Signature Cupid with all her accessories and stand as well as IHF Frankie! The pleasant surprise of the reboot was another and I was really happy for all the Ghoulia fans who got the SDCC pack.

Is there anything else special you want to share about collecting MH in 2017?
Even though I kind of fell off the boat when the semester started I still loved being able to look over my collection. I've become quite proud of it.

Do you have any MH resolutions for 2018?
Be on here more honestly ^^; I need to work on my grail dolls as well and I'd like to get more shelving up in my room.

What are you most looking forward to from MH in 2018?
More of it tbh. Seems like everything's slowed to crawl as of late. I really want Ballet Cleo and I'm still holding out hope for that Moanica/Ari that I cannot live without. I'm also looking forward to getting back on the customization train I was ungraciously thrown off of when school started.

Hey now
Hey now
This is what memes are made of


On a more serious note I'm on the fence about the Sonic ones, the eyes are really off and feel like these would actually benefit from having mouths but I might open my heart if I see them in person. They might actually be alright.

I'm also in love with this thing
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I think I found the playlist for this show in the depths of my youtube recs a while ago and I've been watching it ever since! I think it's really cute and I've been waiting for more merchandise to drop. The world they created is so interesting and I think it's great that Hasbro has another original franchise that's story driven.

None of the merch is stuff I'm really interested in just yet, other than the Hemka plushies (which are new I think? The last time I searched for Hanazuki stuff all I saw was the wearable toys, the little dreamers, the moonlight garden and the light up plush on target.com around late august). I found blind bags for it at kohl's yesterday too.

Turns out Garrett designed the MM 5 pack: https://www.instagram.com/p/BZMpYGsBd2q/?taken-by=garrett_sander





Honestly I love this little tidbit more than the concept art

Fun fact: this set was originally supposed to be a Fraidie Hawkins 5 pack with 2 couples: #HeathBurns & #AbbeyBominable and #InvisBilly & #ScarahSreams with #HeadmistressBloodgood as the chaperone!

Not gonna lie, even though this is one of my favorite MH releases ever, I would have taken a second release for Bloodgood in a heartbeat.

Looks like we're getting Rochelle this week! I think her new voice is okay, but her new outfit is so lovely.

I might have to pick up this Maddie when she goes on deep clearance or from amazon warehouse. I still want a smiling Sig Maddie and if I get this one I won't have to deal with an extra body or a bunch of accessories I don't care about.

Y'know one of these days they're going to have to find a better name than "transforming Draculaura". Listings for that ghoul-to-bat one can get pretty vague.

Moanica vaguely strikes me as an "anything you can do I can do BETTER" kind of antagonist. Maybe it's that sort of thing. I've been gunnin' for a 3rd Moanica and I hope she's gorgeous.

Sonic Mania comes out tomorrow and I'm practically vibrating with excitement! I've preemptively apologized to my doll display because that Sonic statue is getting center stage probably forever.

Not to mention that Mania being released means they can start putting out more info about Sonic Forces. Which is...very much needed right now.

« on: August 02, 2017, 12:12:32 PM »
Oh man this is tough but uh

1) pair of shoes - Sig Ashlynn/Sig Ginger/Sig Apple/Sig Holly/SDCC Cedar
2) outfit - SDCC Cedar/Sig Lizzie/Sig Briar
3) other accessory - Sig Cerise's basket/BB Rosabella's glasses/Thronecoming Cupid's earrings
4) hairstyle - Sig Lizzie/WtW Raven/Sugarcoated Ginger
5) piece of furniture - The entirety of the Hat-tastic Tea Party set, especially the tree table and chair

In terms of G1 characters I'm holding out for Scarah, Robecca, and Gigi. Besides those three I just want a little figurine set of the backgrounder squad. They don't have to be articulated or to scale or anything but I want them to be accurate to the CGI models.

Also where's our third Moanica? I want one that I can't live without.

I love this one! I'm also kind of conflicted about her official outfit and I think it's because of how her bodysuit is mostly unbroken. Those huge spaces in the belt/cage don't quite work for me but putting something under it might.

Great job Wardah! I've been wondering if something like this was possible ever since I saw someone describe the pegs as being "too long".

What tools did you use? How did you heat the hands/arms?

I was prepared to be completely indifferent but EMPEROR'S NEW GROOVE!!!!!!!!

That line was such a huge surprise for me. Didn't even think that was on their radar.

Hoping this means we get more "obscure" Disney movies. Like Atlantis or Treasure Planet.

Seconding this so hard. Everyone likes to poke fun at the POPs but I love how they help properties get merch that otherwise wouldn't.

Also if Atlantis figures happen I want a glowy/opaque "heart of Atlantis" variant for Kida

 A thought just hit me: the silhouette suggests that she's holding a purse. Static body + solo release + extra accessories sounds like the Lots of Looks line to me.

Her arms are so skinny though, I'm really betting on her being Kelpie/Alivia size

What are the chances that's Packlyn and not Howleen, I would hate to see some giant fan-rage storm if it turns out to be another non-Howleen sibling...

Oh no you're right. There is another trademark that hasn't been filled. She has a flopped ear though that would be so mean of them. I'll be in the bomb shelter if you guys need me.
