* The CG animation is much smoother and professional-looking, and a very welcome improvement.

I feel the opposite. I really hate the CG stuff. I'm a traditionalist when it comes to cartoons.

The new CG is still a vast improvement over the old CG. The old CG sometimes looked like bad video game cutscenes.

You're right it has improved, but I just wish they were all cartoons like the first movie.

My holy grail would be a custom made by Andreja/Nicolle's dreams. Her youtube videos were what started my MH obsession and she is so talented.

I like her, but I enhanced mine (heavier lashes, different lip paint, etc.) and put her on a US Haunted Spectra body (which is nearly the same as hers).  If you still want to see her let me know.

Yeah for sure I would like to see her! Sometimes customs can make you see a doll in a whole new way.

I really like the stock photos, something about that translucent skin. I haven't seen many out of box consumer photos. Anyone have some? Is she as cute in person?

What was the first MH doll you purchased this year? 17" Frankie and Clawdeen. Bought them at the same time!

How many MH dolls did you add to your collection in 2016? 8

What is your favorite MH doll or playset purchase of 2016? 28" Skelita, she is just so awesome!

What's your favorite MH photo that you took in 2016?

What is your favorite memory of collecting MH for 2016? My BF saying "No more dolls until you organize your craft supplies!" (Jokingly of course)

Is there anything else special you want to share about collecting MH in 2016? I recently joined this forum and I love it so much. Kinda addicted ATM.

Do you have any MH resolutions for 2017? Sew more and maybe finish the customs I started last year.

What are you most looking forward to from MH in 2017? Hopefully more tall dolls. I love the extra articulation of the 17" dolls, that is what got me started collecting MH.

Customs / Ears and wigs

I have a Clawdeen I want to put a wig on.

Is there any way to let her ears come through the wig? maybe carefully cut 2 holes? I know I can just cut them off.....but I would prefer to keep them.

What are the rarest most valuable MH or EAH dolls?

8 Brick Mario gave you all the relevant info I believe. The first wave came out in 2015, second wave in 2016.

They have also been Walmart exclusives. Looks like this year's  dolls are on sale for $35 there right now. There is also an EAH Madeline Hatter 28" from Toys R Us, she is $40. Her eyes do not change, they are painted on and she doesn't come with all the accessories like the monsters.

Personally, I love them!

Rules & Regs! / Res dead thread or post new?
« on: December 30, 2016, 04:58:56 PM »
What is preferred on this board? To resurrect a dead thread or make a new one.

Specifically I'm talking about a thread from 2014 about what dolls are rare.,5318.msg124094.html#msg124094

I was lucky to get all 3 of the 28 inch dolls this X-mas. I really like them a lot, looking forward to sewing some clothes for them!

Based on the commercial she looks like she is 15"-17" inches. Which is very cool. I don't really like the body growing concept and I hope those branches are detachable. I guess I like my monsters a little more "normie."

I'm looking for 28" Beast Freaky Friend Gore-Geous Ghoul from 2015. The purple doll and the clothes/accessories for the green doll. In good condition especially the hair. I don't mind if they don't have all their accessories but I really do want the spare face plates.

I'm willing to pay $20-$30 depending on what is included with the doll plus shipping. I think this is pretty comparable to what I'm seeing on ebay right now.

I'm new to this message board but you can view my ebay profile here. Mrs.doglady Ebay

More under Spoiler! Her legs do not bend unfortunately. Hair is super crispy, need to wash it. Can't wait to get some more 28 inchers!

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I probably will buy the new Goo when she goes on sale but I'm disappointed. I wish they would have made a 17" of a different character, not one I already have. She is very pretty though.  :love:

How old are you? 30
Where do you live? State, Country? Planet? I live in Michigan, USA

Do you work or attend school? Profession or major? I work as a veterinary receptionist.

Who are the important people in your life? There are 5 people I cherish more than anything. My Boyfriend, Mother, Sister, Niece and Nephew.


How long have you been collecting? about 12 years ago I started collecting Blythe dolls and my hobby spawned from then. I started collecting Monster High about 1.5 years ago.

What made you want to collect Monster High dolls? Nicolle's Dreams on youtube. I started making a few customs. Then I decided I wanted to collect the larger ones.

Tell us about your collection!

I have a few regular size dolls I've customized. I have all the 17" dolls and I'm working on collecting the 28" dolls. I really enjoy sewing clothes for my dolls.
