Monster Discussion / Re: MH dolls with the best hair
« on: March 12, 2019, 09:53:07 AM »
Ghoulia and Spectra dolls have Kankelon hair a lot of times (a thinner, softer fiber), so I consider those the best MH dolls hair-wise. Some other dolls will sporadically have Kankelon too (Like Venus, and I think there are a couple of others), so you can do some searches to find them.

The youtube channel Poppen Atelier has some amazing customizing videos of the 28" dolls! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcYRw5J5-C8plZoeZ7x2QQw/videos

If I compare the trailer to the original series, this is really disappointing. It just doesn't feel like She-Ra... If I take it as an entirely new show on its own though, it actually looks really good. I'll definitely watch and see either way

I am disappointed that Ariel has a dress and not her tail  ^^; I doubt I will buy any of these, but I maybe would have bought mermaid Ariel

I like the art style more than I thought I was going to tbh. I don't like how dominant the very cartoony style of art (with unrealistic-proportions and hardly any details, depth, or shading) has become recently. This one is a decent medium. It still lacks the detail and depth, but at least the proportions are more realistic than what is usually seen.

I have to agree with Sakuya on the forced diversity. That's something that bugs me. I would rather them introduce an amazing new character rather than change the race or sexuality of a pre-existing character solely for the diversity aspect.

I was inspired by Monster High to develop two similar universe, Motor City High and Pixel High.

Motor City High exists on the same level as the organic world, but the characters shift between car and humanoid form. Some of the students include Cory Vette (1963 Split Window Corvette), Mariah Mustang (fastback classic Mustang), Helena Humvee, Fiona Ferrari, Dee Lorean (Back to the Future DeLorean) and Bella Aire (1956 Bel Air). The Principal is Franklin T Ford (model T), some of the teachers include Marty McLaren and Roy Rotsun (Based off the Rotsun from the show Roadkill Classics, look it up, it's pretty interesting)

Pixel High is where all kinds of video game characters go, such as Lizzy Croft (The easily-scared daughter of Lara Croft), even an elf girl from WoW who's clumsy and a mage who can't even make a simple spell! Some of the staff include Cortana (BEFORE she went rampant) who's got the tech classes covered, and Scorch ( Demolitions ace from Republic Commando) who teaches Chemistry 101.
Okay, I really love that Pixel High idea...

Maybe a difference in the different factories?
That is my guess as well.

My lagoonafire came in the mail today! I plan to use her as the base for a custom  :biggrin:

Ahhh!!!!!! I am so glad that I actually love these lines! I am so surprised! I knew I would like the hoodie line (its a bit more...  crazy that I thought it'd be, but thats okay ^^; ), but I am surprised that I like the tea party line as well! I LOVE that Lagoona's top! And that Clawdeen looks so regal! Also, that Ari's hair is so crazy and fangtastic that I need her too, haha! Yay for new MH lines that are actually decent! Please keep improving Mattel!

I randomly remembered one incredibly small, yet incredibly amazing, change from G1 to G2... LAGOONA GOT BLUEGREEN EYEBROWS! Haha, her purple ones always aggravated me  ^^;

Haha, sorry if our answers were a tad depressing. I think time is a magical healing factor for toy lines. I mean, look at My Little Pony. I don't collect ponies or anything, but they've been more popular these past few years than I have ever seen them.

As for a resurgence right now, I think releasing a few sets a year like the Cleo and Ghoulia set would be a good first step. The next would be to stop with the budget lines, because I think no one really buys those and they just end up costing MH more money. Start making more sets that have more details and interesting themes with fully articulated dolls. Release some new interesting characters, and attempt to draw in the new audience of kids. Push the specials (maybe a movie or two onto Nickelodeon?) and hope that they get a new wave of interest from kids.

I'm actually getting more in MH than I have been in a long time  ^^; I now have all the time I need to collect all the dolls I've wanted over the years but never got. Its actually kind of fun hunting them down online for the best prices. I am also going to be ordering some large MH lots off of eBay soon because I want to start customizing and grab a ton of bait dolls before their prices go up. Right before the reboot I ditched MH and focused on my American Girl Doll collection, but I'm back, and my love for the MH brand is stronger than ever!

I agree that if Gen2 fails they should let it sit for a while. Give it some time to breathe, and then bring it back with Gen1 quality. In the meantime though, I would love if they could do a limited number of collector dolls per year via pledge purchases. Make them SDCC quality and have a pre-sale so that the quality and design and everything will be high.

Trader Support / To Exchange Or No?
« on: February 26, 2018, 12:40:10 PM »
Okay, so heres the deal:
I recently purchased the Cleo and Ghoulia Exclusive (for SDCC) two pack for $40 off of Mattel.shop.com. Its part of their limited quantity 'Vault', where they sell old toys that they have leftover stock of. When it arrived today, I was kind of disappointed to find that Cleo has slight scuffing all across her top lip (and a little bit of wonk). The painting on Ghoulia's lips looks almost like it is flecking upwards rather than being a smooth line, and theres a tiny little scuff in the paint on Ghoulia's heels. These aren't super huge issues, and if these were playline dolls I wouldn't be bothered, but these are exclusive "Adult Collector" (as the box says) dolls. I don't plan to debox them, and it kind of bugs me that they came with these imperfections. The thing is though, I don't think that they will pay for the shipping if I ask for an exchange. I don't know if its worth the hassle of paying for shipping and sending the dolls back. So do I just keep these and not worry about it, or do I ask for the exchange and hope to get another set that is a bit less messy?

First wave ghoulia. I never really liked the doll herself but her clothes are really nice. I love her style and Iím glad to have her. Her bag is VERY detailed and I was very impressed on how beautiful she is. Not a big fan of her hair. Feels weird like venusís for some reason.. EDIT: her glasses are super cute too!
Signature and SDCC Ghoulia are my holy grail dolls! Even if she's not one of your grails, I'll congratulate you anyway :P Also, I think she is one of the few dolls to have doll-grade kanekalon hair on certain editions along with Spectra and Venus. I'm not positive whether Signature Ghoulia has kanekalon hair or not, but I'm pretty sure some versions of her do, so that could be why it feels weird.

Turns out there was something Monster High at Toy Fair. Skip to around 7:55 for the MH part.

Also, Mommy from Mommy and Gracie show pointed out in the end that she was told that no, there are no MH or EAH dolls because they needed space for Jurassic World and other initiatives, but that it doesn't mean that there won't be dolls...which to me sounds like such a cop out answer  ^^; I mean, yeah...there will be dolls. But it also shows that MH and EAH are not in their list of priorities anymore, something we already knew, i guess.
I think Mattel really prioritized Jurassic World and the Polly Pocket reboot this Toy Fair. I have my fingers crossed that Monster High will get at least one decent line with articulation and such.
