    Iíve seen Madsakiís MOTU work. Iím an artist and Iím not sure I get it. Just seems like stylized nostalgia with a coloring book feel to it. Some of Madsakiís work is brilliant but, there are so many better artists doing MOTU themed art that Iím not sure why they chose this artist. Just my 2 cents.

    From the beginning it has seemed to me that Mattel is trying to be edgy, hip and cool by picking these types of artists. Itís not my thing and honestly seems to be another misstep and waste of time and energy on their part. Maybe itís working for them but I canít see how. Theyíre offering a lot of stuff that I just canít see the demand was there for. I hope it is. Iíd like to sit in the room when these decisions are being made.

    Of course all that said, I can appreciate them trying something different. You create value by being different, not being the same as everyone else. I just wish theyíd call me first, lol.

    I looked at his gallery, the quality looks like something a 4th grade would have done. Not my cup of tea. I like art to have detail like SiMo Sol's MOTU paintings.

    Now that they've done the Monster High x horror film dolls hopefully the MH Evil-Lyn is not far behind and hopefully a little cheaper than Pennywise...

    I will definitely give them a little leeway as they get their feet wet. I do appreciate the idea of Mattel Creations and any company trying something different- it keeps the alive. Weíll see how this goes. I obviously wonít like everything but, as long as they sell out of the offerings, I have hope there will be something I like as they move forward.

    I kinda wanted the Clear Skeletor But, without any packaging or product pics, it was hard to press the button. I only do that with Star Wars (donít hate me for my blasphemy )

    I just looked at SIMo Solís work. Simply amazing! Wouldnít mind having one of those prints.

    Different style of work but, thereís an artist Iíve been following on Instagram named Pete Carroll (@artofcarroll I think) that has been doing portraits of MOTU Evil characters. Iím hoping he sells prints soon.

    I would assume they would send out an email when it is supposed to become available. It turns out that the 12 a.m. drop was for the Monster High dolls again.

    I have to say, the stuff they're putting out feels like minimal effort type of junk that I'm not sure who the audience is supposed to be for it. I'm not sure I "get" what they're going for with all of this.

    Gotta admit, Mattel doesn't strike me as very dynamic or creative when it comes to this stuff. They need Scott back.

    The conversation we were just having at home regarding today's Madsaki release:

    "Who wants this kind of stuff?"
    "Somebody in L.A."

    Not this guy! I wouldn’t waste my money on that

    Sadly though, there are plenty of Angelinos that would...

    Got my shipping notice also.

    Really wish they would of said how they are packaging this. Carded? Regular flimsy garbage origin style? Special? Black and silver would look awesome with vintage style card.

    Have a feeling this is just coming in a baggie

    As long as it comes undamaged and no iconic artist has spray painted graffiti all over it Iíll be ok.
