I just realized… we got the leaked catalog scans of the Hybrid dolls in December last year. Which means it’s likely we’ll find out what the next movie after Haunted will be this Christmas!
Picnic Date by Katherine Murray
Roughly accurate to the Sweet 1600 dolls. I love Monster High and just had to do some fan art! :3
Without a doubt, one of the best Draculaura/Clawd arts I’ve ever seen. Aside from looking really beautiful, it’s nice to see the two just hanging out together. You hardly ever see that in the webisodes/movies these days.
"They say that ghosts don’t haunt the monster world… er, except for me. And Johnny Spirit. And Moantella Ghostier. And Sirena and her dad and those guys from that ball you made a movie about… Look, I’ll start again!"
"Ask yourself, what would happen if all of you became ghosts?!"
"We’d just carry on as normal? I mean, it’s not like being a ghost has stopped you from living a full unlife. Hell, Ghostier actually started her own business, so I think we’d be fine."
"….Stupid canon, ruining my stories."
"The greatest adventure you will ever have at Monster High!"
"Really? Greater than traveling around the world to find the missing Vampire Queen?"
"Greater than being trapped inside a magic lantern by a jealous, murderous shadow genie?"
"Greater than going back in time, getting fused with someone else, battling a giant robot, then dying and coming back to life?"
"…Okay, clearly I need to find other people to tell these stories to!"
Harsh? Seriously? Your voice for her was fine!
And I’m sorry but Frankie should have been in the exchange program line over Draculaura. She’s still young and wants to experience the world and see new places, this would’ve been a perfect outlet for that.
Lala’s had 1600 years to see the whole world, and probably already has at least once.
Well lets be honest: Draculaura looks like she’s escaped from some cutesy anime most of the time, so it was probably a no-brainer that she would go to Japan.
I’m still hopeful Frankie will get to travel though. Considering the dolls come with accessories and bookets, and there are some new characters not related to a movie, I would wager Monster Exchange is going to be the Picture Day/New Scaremester style line for 2015, and both those lines had two waves and seven dolls in total. And I can’t see Garrett and his crew willing to settle with just four countries represented, so chances are we might see Frankie and other characters joining the line.
At first I wondered why the heck Lagoona is in the Monster Exchange Program when she’s already an exchange student (and going to a landlocked city). Now I’m just optimistic that either she’ll meet a nice manster in Madread, or the long distance will eventually cause her to break up with Gill.
Don’t her parents actually live in or near Salem though? Holt’s diary says they have a house by the sea there..
If there was actual on screen character death in this franchise I think I’d be thrilled.
I’d be happy with that. Adds drama. Besides, Disney’s been killing their villains on screen since the 30’s. If Disney’s been doing it then why…
That or Frankie, after her brush with death, realizes that unlife is short and is busy spending some ‘alone’ time with Jackson and Holt to make up for all that time spent faffing about their relationship.
I was seriously hoping we would see some little kid monsters,but a vinyl chibi Draculaura is fine too.
The new Haunted characters look amazing. I think the pastel colours look a bit bland on some of them, but their overall costume designs are incredible. Vandala comes with a freaking wooden leg! Genius! And while I’m disappointed Kiyomi wasn’t the Sadako-inspired ghost I was hoping for, she looks quite cute.
The plot of this movie though… Mattel, you have really got to explain how ghosts work in this universe. It was one thing when you were implying with Sirena that ghosts could mate with living monsters, but now ANY monster can just turn into a ghost? Do Lala, Clawdeen and Twyla fall into comas? Is there some astral projection going on? I need to know!
Marisol Coxi looks awesome, it’s good that Abbey has another (possibly) amazonian mountain monster to pal around with. Lorna is cute, but I think she’s trying a little to hard to remind everyone “I’M SCOTTISH!!” with that outfit.
And more newer characters like Jane, Catrine and Gigi joining the old guard in more lines. GG, Mattel.
Please don’t let the new male “Porter Paintergiest”, in the Spectra movie fall for Frankie…like every male…in the MH movies…fall for Spectra….or heck even Twyla! ;__:
I doubt Frankie will be in this movie much. She does temporarily die in Freaky Fusion, it’s time for someone else to have a go.
If anyone has the Manster 2-pack, would it be possible to get pictures of their diaries?
I think we’re all eager to see Gil’s perspective on his relationship with Lagoona.
Jesus, and people complain about female dolls having impossible figures. Did Mattel commission Rob Liefeld to design this body?
