    Picked up the new Toralei & Werecats 3 pack at TRU today, its a shame that both of Toralei's releases this year appear to be retail exclusives (the other being Target's Catastrophe aka Catwoman )

    Looks like they used the twin body for Toralei rather than the removable tail plug. If I can get her base body from someone I'll swap clothes with my Toralei since that plug tail gets in the way of the stand, and mine has a paint scratch on the face.

    Though I wonder why they bother with the tails at all- they don't even have them in the animation.

    He's been showing up for over two months now, of course he's the first one to sell through...

    Yeah, he has yet to show up in any of my stores. In fact, the only things Target has carried (just Target, no one else yet) are the car, cart, and the main girls.

    I got a Deuce for my girlfriend back when she was down over Christmas break.

    My walmart still has some Catrines when I went in Wednesday. Not sure if it's a restock or not.

    I've seen nothing locally since, um... well, the 3 GITB Bratzillaz I got over a month ago were the most recent restock I saw. But I have Jinafire on her way to me from my recent Amazon order.

    Then again, I recently sold Jackson... it's a signature doll but I found it to be one of my more boring parts of the collection, and I got twice what I paid for it thanks to demand having skyrocketed. Not that I sold it for the money, I think I bought it to be completist, really. Besides, if I stick to my "1 doll per character" rule, I can hope they reissue Holt or something. I have to admit, the difficulty in even finding these dolls does feel a bit discouraging as someone who wants to buy these. Though I'd hesitate to sell most of my collection off as it is- not that many are really worth much(I think Ghoulia, Clawd, Howleen and the werecat trio are the only ones I have of any solid value), though if those reissue Clawdeens do start popping up and aren't just a one-time sighting I'll sell my current stand-in Clawdeen.

    Admittedly, it seems fewer of the dolls are holding any major resale value. Some of them have sat on Amazon for a long time at base retail and people are just hesitant to sell a loose doll for that price now. For every doll that goes up in value, a lot go down. I think if I sold off my whole collection right now, I'd get maybe $200 tops for it all- they're all loose, I sold most of the pets and diaries and some accessories.

    The line's still going strong but I still say we'll see a time when interest fades and value tanks, and all those signature dolls can be had for $15 or less. It happens with practically ever modern toy series.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I found Catrine today while grocery shopping, first MH doll I've found locally in some time(barring the variants I'm not after- seen a few odds and ends dolls).

    Her tail isn't attached in the box, it's held to her belt by a rubber band and has to be plugged in. But since she doesn't seem to ave a tail at all in the Scaris special, I didn't bother. Seeing as she uses the twins body mold, I checked and found the werecat twins can also have their tails removed with no hassle b simply pulling at the base of the tail. The plug seems designed to allow the tail to detach. Fine by me, they don't have them in the webisodes and the tails get in the way of shelf display.

    Well, I just gave myself a good scare... Put together a list of all the 2013 dolls that have been announced and those that have been seen in leaked pics... Not including the SDCC exclusive(s) I got 71 different dolls including the CAM add-ons. Clawdeen is the winner this year with 8 different dolls. Lagoona and Draculaura each have 6 while Frankie gets 5. Spectra may have 4 or 5 as one doll in the leaked pics could be her or not... Cleo and Abbey have 4. Ghoulia, Rochelle and Venus have 3 while Operetta and Howleen will have 2. Robecca and Toralei are the only previous dolls to get just one release this year besides the boys.

    Gotta wonder how many more that we don't know about...

    Maybe initially if interest fades at one time and people start getting their collections offloaded, but when you have Signature Dolls that were either ignored (Jackson, Holt, Clawdeen, Deuce/Nefera 2 Pack) or you have releases people missed (Gil Skull Shores, Clawd 1600) a big chunk will never hit $15

    I would love them to hit that price point, but in 13 years of selling high end dolls I see absolutely nothing that shows me it will get to that point with the older Signature releases. Sure there are some they can't seem to give away (Nefera, Operetta in particular)

    Also it appears just from what I have seen in the pipeline Mattel is really moving away from the "Signature" style of releases and over to the themed deluxe/standards. So those past dolls having stands, diaries, pets, and clothes will force them to retain their value as Mattel phases out the additional parts/goodies in the newer lines.

    Ouch. The number of new dolls I'll be buying is... low. Probably new characters only. Even then I may start passing on dolls I don't really care for, unique character or not. Costs do add up, unfortunately. I've become much more of a choosy shopper with luxury goods than I was last year. I also have only so much shelf space for stuff.

    Right now I'm considering parting off my signature Rochelle just because she's been stuffed to "top shelf" display status(up by the ceiling where stuff isn't at eye level), I'm not really impressed with it and her character somehow bugs me in the webisodes. I have a fair number of dolls I'd only sell in an absolute money emergency, Rochelle isn't one of them.

    Gotta wonder how many more that we don't know about...
    I''d say at least 15. So much stuff isn't revealed until 2 months before it comes out and then only through early factory samples. I'm surprised that catalog got scanned, but Mattel's probably seeing heads roll over that.

    Has anyone seen the new BAM packs for the Harpy and stuff not at TRU? We've only seen them at TRU but are not willing to spend $28 on them.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Whoops, made a mistake in my numbers... Need to up the total to 74: I forgot the Werecats Fearleading set when I was making the list. BTW, for anyone who doesn't know, just watched a review of the CAM Siren and was surprised to find that the reason two belts are included is so that the tail can be used with a male CAM as well!

    Really, Jim, That would be awesome!! Which CAM...obviously not one that has been released yet. Good, I still have my Siren MIP and haven't opened it because I need body parts for her, but if a boy is coming out where he can wear the fin, then yes, I'll be keeping THIS set.

    The fin fits the current CAM boys (Vampire/ Gargoyle/ Puma)

    I also saw the TRU Scaris 2-pack for Cleo and Lagoona. Saw it before the current sale. Should have picked it up, the buy one get one 50% off has cleared the shelves around here.

    Still looking for the werecat 3-pack and Catrine.

    HOLY MOLY!!! I can't keep up with all of these releases, it feels like we can't go even one month without a new sighting or announcement. Glad to see we are getting a regular Scarah, I hope at some point Hoo-dude also gets a retail release.

    I got Jinafire in today. Her tail is removable, like the werecats, but the plug is much larger. Her chest is also... definitely bigger than most of the dolls. I have to think they sculpted it this way on purpose- maybe to give some variety to body types for this line? I doubt it was an accident because it's otherwise the existing buck. But I can see it making fitting existing clothes much harder. I guess we can see why doll lines share one body type, can't swap clothes if they don't fit all the dolls.

    Pity they didn't give her wings.

    I've seen Flickr images of jinafire wearing operetta's newest fashion pack red top, so I think most clothes will fit jinafire.

    I think the reason she doesn't have wings is because she's a Chinese dragon, which typically don't have them.

    The tail probably ate up the extra parts budget anyway, but with wings she'd feel more like an homage to Morrigan. But even without them she still looks a bit like one of her victory poses.
