I got in my stores shipment of Dance Dolls WOOT, now to wait on Scaris
Are the school fashion packs still available? I want that Lagoona swimsuit pack but I'm not paying $20 to order one on Amazon. I think it's part of the same set as Deuce's casketball pack, right? I saw those at Big Lots not too long ago...
Do the Frankie and Clawdeen 'Ghoul Spirit' sets still turn up in stores in the states? They are the only ones I need of the set.
I do find it odd that Lagoona's and Duece's outfits are usually the only ones found anymore while nothing of wave two or three is ever lingering anywhere around here.
The Ghoul Spirit line was the PE line -Lagoona swim team,Deuce Casketball,Clawdeen Soccer, Frankie Fear Leading.
I have the Fearleading set,Lagoonas and Deuces. may as well finish the set.
Has anyone found the Dance dolls or Scaris dolls in stores yet?
I'll get Deuce Scaris, just so I can have a base figure for the casketball outfit- which I'll pick up at Big Lots possibly tomorrow if they still have them, though I know I can get it for base retail and free shipping eligible on Amazon. Otherwise I'm sticking to mostly the new characters, shy of Dance Class Operetta.
Who is Deuce?
Aldi has MH dolls listed in this week's ad paper, $10 each so assume basics. I have no idea what they'll be but the ad showed Roller Maze. At 410 I can get an Operetta even though none of them really excite me all that much. I'll have to see what, if anything, is left over tomorrow.

Aldi was a bust, not one doll, nor even a sign advertising their price. Piles of Barbie and the other advertised toys, apparently they didn't get MH in at this store.
I got Deuce's casketball uniform at Big Lots, it'll sit in the package until I get Scaris Deuce. So at least the day wasn't a total loss in the search.
Figured some of you might like this

If anyone needs the school set, Amazon has it for 4$69 and free shipping right now, no idea how long that price will hold.
may have missed it, saw photos of picture day dolls on amazon. Found links on nowinstock.com
Are there any high quality pics yet of that new Robecca coming out?
I also saw midnight magic dolls at walgreens yesterday, they are on buy 2 get 1 free.
Walmart's Black Friday special is supposedly going to be reissues of the 3 Classroom dolls, though they will come without the lockers. TRU will have their 2 I <3 Fashion exclusives for $13 each. Both of which I'll no doubt miss as they will be picked clean before I even get to Walmart and there's no way I can get to TRU. If I get lucky I can get someone to middle man me a Fashion Frankie because I'm not getting one otherwise.
There's some iPad app figurines out, painted in metallic colors but sculpted well. I'll hold out and hope they get better paints later because they have promise(small sculpted figurines of the signature looks? Yes, these would sell like mad).
I'm definitely cutting back on variants though... most I'll limit to of 2 dolls per character at maximum. I'll probably buy the last 2 Bratzillaz dolls with the money instead, rather than "oh, another doll of this character that I own 3 versions of already...". I actually sold my SS Drac and Ghoulia just because they didn't really impress me much.
Speaking of Bratzillaz, I'm tempted to watch their webisodes. Can't say I'm holding much hope of them being stellar quality though.
I picked up the Frankie app figure yesterday. Figured I could fill in the missing paint apps on her dress if it bothered me. The face is nicely done. Also, as you said Diosoth, the sculpting on them is good for such a small figure.
The iPad figures will probably go on sale, just a few weeks ago you could get them for $5.95 at Toys R Us
The problem with them is they ship in low quantity so getting a full set of 4 at one time may be hard, usually all I ever see left are Drac and Frankie, people seem to like the Lagoona and Clawdeen more.
I am ignoring the BF sales, between all the scalpers who are going to push people down to save $5-7 on a doll its just not worth it. Especially knowing what I know the past few years and stores have much more stock but are only going to put "in stock" a handful of items.
TRU for example is notorious for this with MH, they will offer a handful of dolls on BF then magically the next day/week put those dolls back out but with a $5-15 price increase (they did this with Sweet 1600 last Christmas)
