    Monster High

    Howdy, sorry bout the mildly misleading title, but has this been mentioned before?





    I was wondering if this is a licensing headache!

    Cos I REALLY want clawdeen -The POP One that is!

    So has another company used the name Clawdeen? Does this mean we'll never see our favorite pink cat in MOTUC?

    No, it is from Mattel. Mattel licensed Clawdeen Wolf and we were hoping for Clawdeen.
    Too bad..

    I find it funny how the Greys when they abduct us are conditioning us to be attracted to their kind. Large heads, stick bodies, large eyes. Inbreeding is happening and it is time to wake up people. They are creating a hybrid race that will wipe out pure humanity. The Government is working with them we must join together and repel them now!

    Funny thing is, I'd buy these before I would Clawdeen. Here's a place that has a video review up of the merchandising:

    They don't look bad. I guess it's nice to see Mattel using the Brats body style that they went out of their way to go to court and own.

    Hilarious, but you nailed exactly what I think about those dolls : alien-like, and screaming "anorexic" !

    The "monster" idea for those dolls is quite cool, as a matter of fact...

    Aww... too bad. BUT, I'm glad that Clawdeen won't be turned into a wolf LOL


    Clawdeen is coming. They can use this trademark in anyway they like. Plus, Clawdeen is a Battle Cat re-use. It costs them very little to produce Clawdeen.

    Notice I use no pronouns like "him" or "her" or "he" or "she" because Clawdeen is of undetermined gender LOL (a girl in the box-art bio, a boy in the mini-comics and toon).

    Those dolls are really cool though - the fish lady is awesome.

    Well, isn't "Clawdeen" meant to suggest the feminine name Claudine? That's what I've been assuming.
    Still remembers we paid excessive shipping on Battleground Teela. Is confident Matty will resolve the issue and make it right for us.

    It's possible they used the name here to cement that they have the trademark.

    Maybe he'll be Claw-Dean in this line? Because while I buy the pink fur, I don't buy the female lion with a mane...

    Actually, I'm sure I will buy it, however that issue gets approached. in fact, Mattel need only sculpt one mane for both Clawdeen and Battle Lion and attach it to the Battle Cat/Panthor sculpt!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I LOVE these! Apparently Toys r Us.com sold some before they were supposed to and someone bought them all. I am anxiously awaiting their arrivals in stores!

    There are webisodes you can watch at either www.monsterhigh.com or http://www.youtube.com/user/MonsterHigh

    It seems like Mattel is going all out, there is a live action Movie in the works, a 22-minute episode for TV, a clothing line a Justice stores, costumes at Party City, a book (by Clique author Lissi Harrison), plus the dolls, plush, bag, and more!

    you can see all the stuff here:

    http://www.atamaii.com/monster-high.html

    Plus there will be a set of 3 "Dawn of the Dance" dolls and a Comic-con exclusive Black and White Frankie Stein.

    You can see the above mentioned items, plus lots of pictures of the dolls at

    You look pretty pumped for somebody without a pulse

    Awwwh, the androgynous 80's toy paradox... The biggest question mark of any 80's toyline though was/is Strawberry Shortcake where one Plum Puddin' was introduced as a boy, went off to boarding school, and magically came back as a girl.

    MOTUC versus Monster High

    Has anybody here heard about these? This July Mattel launched an all new doll line called Monster High (think Barbie meets Dr. Frankenstein) along with tons of spin-off merchandise, webisodes, a novel, and a music video.

    Huh?!

    How the hell does an unknown, untested no-name franchise out of nowhere get a full retail launch, webisodes, a new novel and other merchandise when an established and proven brand like MOTU has to struggle, and can't even get a pathetic little mini-comic printed?

    Because Monster High is selling better than any of Mattel's boys toys right now short of Hot Wheels.

    This is from a very popular kid's book series going on. It's a Harry Potter thing sort of I guess you can refer to it as. Basically someone else is doing the correct type of marketing and Mattel is just jumping on their coat tails to sell a line of dolls. Well, of course Mattel didn't come to the company that owns Monster High, it was the other way around, but still the sales are coming off of the other company's promotions and popularity. Nothing really to do with Mattel other than they did actually make a pretty nice looking product. My wife has bought a couple to go with her Barbie collection.


    EDIT: Rather than editing what I had typed, I'll just add on. The book isn't actually out yet as I thought it was. It doesn't hit until Sept. 1st. But it still applies what I said about it being a Harry Potter type of thing. I don't understand it and many of you all probably won't either, but there was chatter going on about this for months before the dolls ever were shown at Toy Fair 2010. It's been something apparently that kids have known about and has latched onto. Most of any promotions I've ever seen were in book stores. The dolls just kind of was on the shelf during the current reset they are doing in the toys right now. They didn't sell at first, but they ahve picked up steam int he last week.

    Little girls still play with dolls, but little boys are only interested in videogames and porn?
