If you’re into Monster High or are just a geek in general, you probably know that the San Diego ComiCon took place this past weekend; this is the place where many of the big toy reveals for next year happen, and I’ve compiled a photo archive here of Monster High and EAH’s SDCC offerings. They’re roughly in the order that they were shown at the con, and all of them should link through to their sources.
Manny & Iris, SDCC 2014 Exclusive 2-pack
Manny’s jacket is apparently packaged separately from the dolls in the box; there are rumors that they were meant only for people who pre-ordered through Matty Collector and that there were only three hundred of them… but that the people working the booth were not aware and gave them out to everyone at first. So some people didn’t get them and some people have apparently not realized it was in the bottom of the bag, so if you bought a set of these dolls make sure you get the jacket too!
It’s confirmed that she is on the big sister body, as you can see that she is between Rochelle and Garrott in height:
“Scarisian Vacation” 2-pack with Garrott Du Roque and Rochelle Goyle
Garrott DuRoque is the boyfriend of Rochelle Goyle, who still resides in Scaris. Following her departure to the USA to attend Monster High, he and Rochelle lost contact. They met up again in the TV special “Scaris: City of Frights” and rekindled their relationship.
Some detail pics here.
Promo video here. We saw this for the first time at NYCC last year, but now we get to see it in action; I had thought it was some kind of 3-d printer, but it appears that the Monster Maker just draws on the dolls, controlled via a free app that comes along with the machine. I think they were saying last year that it was going to retail for around $150, but I haven’t seen anyone confirm that since SDCC.
Ghoul Talk 2-pack with Catrine DeMew and Rochelle Goyle
The Original Ghouls Collection is a re-release of the original 6 character dolls, and will be online exclusive. It will be available as a bundle with all 6, but Draculaura, Frankie, Clawdeen and Cleo will also be offered individually (with Lagoona and Ghoulia remaining exclusive to the bundle version). I read that the individuals will retail for $15, and the bundle will be $80.
Lots of detail shots here.
Swim Class wave 3
And they’ve already been found for sale somewhere.
New Inner Monster
As far as I can tell, there was one new Inner Monster set in the display case – the one with the big yellow wings; it was not included when they debuted the other sets at NYCC, though we’ve seen stock photos of it online recently.
This line is exactly what it sounds like, a student exchange program at Monster High. Two new characters were introduced for this line, along with new versions of some of the main MH cast.
The first new character revealed was Lorna McNessie from Rotland, daughter of the Loch Ness Monster; she’s on the little sister body:
The other new character is Marisol Coxi from Monster Picchu, daughter of the Maricoxi (South American bigfoot); so far we’ve only seen the stock image, but it’s clear she has the big sister body (along with big furry feet!):
Draculaura in Japan:
Lagoona in Spain:
According to mhinsider (who was at the MH panel at the con), Haunted will be a Spectra movie, and looks like it features Frankie, Draculaura, Clawdeen, Twyla, Rochelle and Ghoulia. The girls will be turned to ghosts and go to a haunted high school.
There are several new character dolls debuting with the movie, along with ghost-ified versions of some of the main crew.
Vandala Doubloons, ghost pirate with a removable peg leg:
River Styxx, daughter of the Grim Reaper (and Reaper-In-Training); she has the little sister body:
The rest of the Haunted line, that weren’t actually shown at the con:
There’s also going to be a as yet unnamed playset that comes with a Spectra doll:
Gloom and Bloom
Freaky Field Trip
Freaky Field Trip is a new budget line featuring Toralei Stripe, Clawdeen Wolf, and Gigi Grant – pics here.
The last MH thing to be revealed at the con was a new line of vinyl figures, with Draculaura as the spearhead. These are purportedly not Funko, and are actually a bit smaller than the Funko figures at 4 1/2 to 51/2 inches tall.
Ever After High
Cerise Wolf SDCC exclusive
And.. that’s it. That’s all we got from EAH at ComiCon – Lizzie was the only new thing revealed.
So, what do you think? Any new dolls that you’re excited about? Leave a comment, let’s talk about it!
