Monster Discussion / Re: How would YOU reboot Monster High? Would you?
« on: March 19, 2019, 10:56:02 AM »
The hyper-boring Ari Hauntington was never a collaboration doll. She was simply a huge mistake on the MS designers' part. What were they thinking, trying to replace Spectra with that lousy cheap ghost wannabe? Tsk, tsk! Shame on them!

 :haha: :haha:

I would have mind her much if she were another ghost instead of a Spectra reboot.

Moanica I also like, though I can never see her as a Ghoulia substitute. I think Frankie absorbed Ghoulia's nerdy role more than Moanica could absorbe the zombie role, but Moanica was fun

Last friday Funko Launched 3 new figures to their Captain Marvel

I think I'm gonna get a Goose Flerken, would love the chase version, but if hard to find, I can do with the regular one.  <3
Because I'm still lying to myself that I'm not buying funkos and my 5 ones are not a collection :rolleyes: :wonder: :haha:

Monster Discussion / Re: MH dolls with the best hair

Isi Dawn Dancer for straight hair, ILF Scarah Screams for wavy hair (although, there are 2 different versions of her and only one of them has that lustrous wavy hair

That's so weird! My Lagoona from the same line also had two right hands! Luckily I had an extra Lagoona lying around so they swapped hands. I wonder if all of the We R Monster High Lagoonas were released the same way? :wonder:

No, I just checked mine and it has regular left and right hands. So I guess it was a batch, maybe?

Guys, I found this link with all the "cancelled content" by MH. Found a lot of interesting stuff! Might be interesting if your curious or good material for customs!

Here it is https://monsterhigh.fandom.com/wiki/Cancelled_content

The Griffin and Dragon fright-mares sound so cool! I would have like those better than the weird ice-cream fright-mare (one of the last ones)

Also, though none doll related, I would have like to know more about the builders and the catacombs. That story got swiped away with the reboot when MH became Dracula's summer palace instead of a school with history behind its founding

Pharao/Seth Ptolemy who according to Garret was design but later canceled.


And I would also would've like:
Andy Beast
Johnny Spirit
13 Wishes Cleo
13 Wishes Ghoulia
The dark shadows of the core dolls
And a Griffin that appear once in a MH magazzine
And for fashion packs, Skelita's, Jinafire's and Clawdeen's Scaris designs
Did they ever actually say the Gaga set was going to be released or was it just that photo? I always assumed it was just a one-off :O

I don't remember Mattel every advertising that.

What was the first MH doll you purchased during 2018
A custom of Johnny Spirit (he was actually purchase on 2017 but did not arrive until March 2018

How many MH dolls did you add to your collection in 2018?
10 (2018 total ended up in 244)

What is your favorite MH doll or playset purchase of 2018?
I received Scarah Screams and Hoodude Voodoo from boyfriend  <3

What's your favorite MH photo that you took in 2018?
It was such a hard choice to pick 1 picture from nothingness because it appears I didn't take any special picture in 2018. One here and there of incoming, but even though I did plans for some dioramas, I completed none. So this is the only half decent picture I actually took  :cry:


What is your favorite memory of collecting MH for 2018?
Planning customs. Have a full stash of stuff I wanted for 2 dolls I wanna bring to life some day.

Is there anything else special you want to share about collecting MH in 2018?
Not really. It was a disappointing year in general. Hunting for old releases has become an on and off hobby. The flame is revive every time I have the time, or I get new ideas, but it gets kind of lost in daily life stuff. I wish I can hold on to the dreams a bit more longer. I love monsters and Monster High was a beautiful dream.

Do you have any MH resolutions for 2019?
Get myself into customs, or commission the ones I want. Sets and maybe some old lines I pass on favor of others hoping to get them afterwards.

What are you most looking forward to from MH in 2019?
Customs really. I've been wanting a Dryad and a Quetzalcoatl for a while, so hopefully they get done this year. I've eyed 2 different Mexican artists work, so with any luck I'll get these 2 done.

See your 2017 memories here

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.

Off Topic / Re: Dolly blues
« on: January 02, 2019, 09:02:09 AM »
I have the Dolly blues and bad. Can't seem to shake it off. I just can't get interested in dolls anymore after the end of MH.
I do get occasional Star Wars FoD if I like the character (even though they succeeded in the art of hybrids, I have difficulties accepting the hybrid-ness of them as I rather them be fashion dolls than action figures), I've liked some of the made to move, curvy and tall barbies though none enough to actually buy one. I think that most of the Marvel Rising dolls have potential but I loose interest in them as quick as it comes. Haven't gotten any.
Pullips, Obitsu, DD or any other bjd are not for me. I love admiring them. I really do. But I don't know what they have that I don't feel compel to have my own ones.
I don't like blind bags. I like buying what I want and not leaving it to luck, and not any single doll has interest me as to manage an exchange or ebay direct buy.
I like Hot Toys, but aside my Joker (which was a gift), I don't feel the need to get any other for myself.
I love the world of Harry Potter, but it seems I don't love the dolls of them at all. Not because I don't like them or I don't think the resemblance is accurate or they are not beautiful. I just don't need them.

I just can't get into dolls anymore, unless it's an old MH or EAH release that I missed.
I still feel sad every time I wonder through the toys aisle of the stores. I see what's left of MH, EAH and SHG fading away and I just can't see any other doll lines.

 :sad: :sad: :sad:

Ghoulia is my favorite doll of all times!
And my favorite version of her is the SDCC Miss DeadFast. That doll is just perfection  :love:
After SDCC I would say Signature and Love's not Dead.

My second and third favorite only have one version of them, Avea and Posea.

Congratulations to Neon for giving us beautiful all-year-round pictures!
Thank you so much for keeping the flame alive even through sickness  :hug:

Day 357
My complete circus troupe! Phew, arranging this photo was exhausting. This is the most dolls I crammed into one photo so far - there's eleven of them!

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

You can never really tell when the pictures are individual or only one doll line, but this picture gives so much perspective on the size and dimensions difference of the dollies   :ghoul: <3

Day 363

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

This looks like such a fun picture, because I can clearly imagine the dialogue and interactions going on  ^.^

Day 364
My Pullip Army.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

You had just mentioned that 11 dolls was hard, I can only picture how 15 dollies at once worked, as mentioned during   the ANTM challenge a couple of years back, dolly photographing is like defusing a bomb
But you still did it! The "old school" effect one looks exquisite :clap:

Once again, thank you for sharing your pictures with us, they were such a delight for both happy and rainy days this 2018

Going over my wishlist to see if there was any old doll that I wanted, and ended up getting Abbey MF, Haunted Rochelle, and Freaky Fusion Clawvenus and Lagoonafire because I had customs planed for the later 2 but couldn't go through with them given that I only had them once and the idea of not accepting them how they originally are made me feel bad. Yes I know that's kind of being silly, but I do feel better knowing I have their original version as back up so I can proceed with the customizing of the second one  ^^;

Day 330

It will be a raw expression of my exhaustion from this challenge  :P

It doesn't help that aside from Nina and some other sporadic collaboration you are practically keeping this thread alive (and I love you and feel very grateful for that) :(

Superb pictures of the sleeping beauties
