Title: Bragaroni and cheese! (10/13/17 Birthday Ball trio!)
Post by: Poster on March 31, 2017, 01:46:24 PM
It's... okay yeah it's still pretty unlikely. But today was different!

Rarely do they ever even have one, and here were two. And heck yes did I get them both.

(I think I'm most excited to get those DotD tights and shoes. :love: )

Ooooh lucky! Only one I found was missing limbs, those look to be in really good condition though!

I've always wondered if the guys glasses fit the girls or if they were too big, could you let me know?

Sig Deuce's glasses certainly do--I may or may not have spent several minutes trying them on various other characters just to see who can pull them off. Also, I discovered that FCA Clawdia's glasses are kind of adorable on Holt. I'm guessing any glasses will fit on almost any head. If they're too big, well, that's what clear elastic's for.

That said if you find a pair too small for the face you're trying them on, probably best not to force it; some of them are kind of fragile. XD; *meaningful look toward FF Ghoulia's*

That's awesome!! Love DOTD Clawdeen!

She is gunning hard for Favorite Clawdeen Status over here, let me tell you.  :love:

Congratulations on getting the rare Clawdeen!  Looks like she's in good condition.

Yeah I think I crossed the room at the speed of light when I saw that green hair. :D And yes, she's in very nice condition--she even still has tight elastic!

Great find she looks great in glasses too

She really does!

Incidentally, the glasses are about the only thing I still haven't identified from these two. Both of their glasses, for that matter. Anyone know whose they might be?

Anyhoo, thanks all! I'm still super happy about finding these two. ^.^

Congrats!
Second hand dolls are best dolls :D
In my experience, most(But not all) glasses of MH and EAH fit all characters(Or at least Dexter, Jackson, Deuce and the swim lines sunglasses. Also Rosabella)

The glasses seem to be Bratz(Who also fit them), but I could be wrong.

If indeed that is the case, I am definitely gonna need to look into grabbing some more Bratz accessories; these glasses are awesome. :D

And thanks! Yes, second hand dolls are awesome. Finding them feels like finding treasure! ^.^

It happened again. :D

Excited about the scooter in particular, even though it's missing the kickstand. ^.^

And of course, now that I have the rest of the DotD stock... 8D

Congrats on your new findings!

It's... oddly satisfying to complete the stock of a doll out of several ones(It has happened to me with 13W Howleen and with Sig Deuce)

It really is! ^.^ It's like putting together a puzzle. Or like hunting down artifacts.

Thanks lots!

More than twenty years later, I finally got my hands on one of my most-wanted Jurassic Park dinos:

Reacquired another couple of Kenner Aliens:
(http://i.imgur.com/p6LcYQw.jpg)
Was very happy to find both of these with no missing projectiles. :D Dude on the right's especially tricky to find complete since he comes with more than one.

Barring repaints and a few victims human figures, I've got a nearly complete Kenner Aliens collection now. :D

Congrats, that's awesome!

I've never seen/heard of them...could you pls post a pic of the aliens with their victims, I mean humans? Are the human figures similar to the movies in terms of alien/victim scale?

Sure thing! This is currently the only human figure I've got from this line, but he'll serve just fine for size reference:

So much for that disguise! :P

The aliens themselves vary in size somewhat depending on the breed. Here's the same figure with a more typical drone:

And with a more typical queen:

And now, just for the sake of silliness:

That's, uh, a nice pet crab you've got there, Lagoona. XD

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Thank you! Those are really awesome. Are the green things with the queen the pods? Thank you for doing all the different pics!

OMG the Alien franchise has some amazing movies/storylines.

Last pic - so funny! Are you planning an Alien/MH crossover? When the Alien queen comes to Monster High, will she be accepted for who she is? Will she take over the Catacombs and lay pods everywhere? Will the embryos go after the ghouls and mansters, or head straight for the normies? lol

The green thing's an ovipositor! It didn't come with eggs, though, other than what's molded to the bade. Instead it was rigged to pour slime on trapped figures. Of course by the time I got my queen hive set, said slime was, uh. Not very slimy anymore. :P

Wrt the last paragraph in your post, this is the image that immediately came to mind:

I'm not sure why that specifically was what came to mind, but yeah. :B

Just got back from a week spent out of state, during which I found these:
(https://i.imgur.com/vc9YNwb.jpg)
I had completely given up on finding them with the original articulation, and yet there they were! Along with Earl Grey, whom I found hiding not far from them.
