Two-Fisted Toy Talk!

These Toys Aren't Going to Photograph Themselves…

Window Shopping: Monster High

So that historians are spared the burden of endless debate in the many volumes I expect to be penned in my honor, I present to you the Monster High dolls I am most eager to acquire.

(I am almost certain that all the remaining photos are promotional images. If I am mistaken and a photographer credit is due, let me know).

 

Perhaps the biggest revelation is Lagoona Blue; she is not the character I find most compelling, but I am interested in half a dozen of her variants. That’s twice the number of any other character.

If nothing else, you gotta love her Abe Sapien-like sleeping quarters.

Lagoona Blue (Wave 1):

Lagoona Blue (School’s Out):

Of the five Lagoona dolls pictured, the Wave 1 version is probably my favorite, which is a pity because the older dolls tend to be the most expensive.

 

C.A. Cupid (Wal-Mart Exclusive):

At first I hated Cupid’s lipstick, but then it somehow reminded me of Quimper from Grant Morrison’s The Invisibles:

Cleo De Nile (Ghouls Rule):

Draculaura (Wave 1):

I find Draculaura to be among the least interesting characters in the Monster High series, but this, the original Draculaura doll, is pretty nifty.

And now for my favorite character (and here I should note that all my talk of favorite and least favorite characters stems from nothing more than a given doll’s design; I have no intention of exploring any Monster High media):

 

Ghoulia Yelps (Classroom):

Ghoulia Yelps (Wave 1):

For what it’s worth, if I could only have one Monster High doll, it would probably be the Wave 1 version of Ghoulia Yelps.

 

Gil (Skull Shores):

Speaking of Abe Sapien!

Robecca is right up there with Ghoulia Yelps. So cool!

Scarah Screams (San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive):

I am resigned to the fact that there is no way in hell I will ever own any convention-exclusive toy.

Yeesh. I gotta win the lottery or something.
