Really?? That is weird:/ They seem to have all but finished and the dolls exactly "magical" right now Mattel... If there is no show they can't really introduce new characters well either... I ordered Nina and Jillian the other day and I thought that would be my collection complete. Maybe they just won't do anymore Originals. Possibly just tying up loose ends and emptying the ideas board.

This is WEIRD news as they have officially told Guru won't do the episodes and no one has token the place either... and the magazine is cancelled already....
Maybe the dolls will be for the crossover book that comes out in autumn? I hope they would do more signature Lizzie's as they are almost impossible to find online in reasonable price.
And I do hope they would just continue....
Crossover book coming in autum!?! What is this and how did I not know about it!?! :)
It IS strange that Guru won't be doing the webisodes anymore. The style of animation was perfect for EAH. My only fear is that they'll do what they did with Monster Hight, but I don't think I could handle another reboot . . .
In facebook was a blurb of how Draculaura and Frankie comes to EAH and they have to stop the Evil Queen together... The exact blurb is in "I don't know how to break this to you gently" Forum thread. :)
As they have stopped producing so many dolls and doll lines already I'm really interested to see the new additions. To get even a hint what they might be. Just some new versions of Apple and Raven (the toddlers were... quite horrible in my taste)? Or do we get something NEW? Like a completly new beginning for a new EAH? That wouldn't be "Meeshelled" (adapting Disney alterations to stories).
Thanks:D Since I first stared watching EAH I have always thought that the best way to end it would be with that slogan.
Dropping the trademark for "royally rebellious" makes sense seeing as the Royal vs Rebel drama is over:( (With not the greatest conclusion in my opinion.)
I am not so bothered about what dolls they do now judging by Mattel's most recent attempts. I don't think I want anymore Original dolls though. Ramona would have been lovely but now I really don't want them to spoil her. I would have loved the boys too but if they are going to be anything like Daring... No thank you!
Don't worry, there is no trademark for Ramona or boys. ;) So they can't spoil them. I adore the awesome customs people make and have done. And am so happy I got an extra Cerise in a lot to turn to Ramona. Now just would have to boost up my customing skills as I have done.... Black Swan Duchess's hair and eyes and nothing more. :DD One dress for me-doll (from MC2)
Man, I'm lazy. But the lack of trademarks for known but missing characters would mean it would be the old ones or then completely new again. Which, IMHO wouldn't be the best solution. Yes, I get they want to sell dolls but a) doing same dolls over and over again won't sell them and b) cheap looking, poorly made new dolls won't sell either.
And the new dolls are out! I think they are not a surprise to anyone but in how little effort they made to them...
I have to admit; I love Toddler Raven and Ashlynn's curles and Raven's lipstick but those dolls just creep me out.
Thronecoming BUDGET LINE? The most over the top, fancy dress thing IN BUDGET?! This is more what Mirror Beach should have looked like. And why almost everyone has Apple's mask? Briar has Book Party Lizzie's shoes, I'm sure I've seen Ashlynn's in Monster High... And Briar was already made in Thronecoming doll, a decent one!
The Back to School is obviously stolen from MH and almost shows signs of trying. (Am I being too critical? Yes?) Even though Darling and Holly looks like their botox has gone awfully wrong I do like glasses on Darling and her dress. Meeshell's scarf (or Poppy's) is awfully cute too. (And Cupid looks like Book Party one with minor alterations that is in the old dolls... I would have hoped a new Cupid.) And it bothers me almost everyone have Book party Ginger's book pile and Apple's fainting couch laptop a bit modified. We get new book with Brooke on it and few new garments in the whole doll line. :(
I do like Maddie, her style is oddly sharp for her even with the Statue of Liberty hair piece. And Blondie reminds me of some actor I just can't remember who. But she looks sharp and ready. (Though a lot like her Through the woods doll?)
But I wish for new shoes, please! Stop using the existing ones! (And I actually like that Meeshell is in this line even though her doll isn't all it could be. It would have been awesome to have this line in Meeshell, Nina, Justine and Jillian! (And Ramona))
The more I have looked Back To School the more I think I'll buy Blondie and Meeshell... *sigh* If they are in reasonable price. (And in the end this will be like Archery Club that I end up with all of them...)
I hope this would mean that some studio would do the webisodes again. It is BACK to school. Like they were on a break and now they are back and everything would continue...?
Yikes, has it really been five months? I guess the last one was Ramona's episode in October . . . . . wow, I really hope we get some news soon. (i.e. will there be more specials after epic winter? when will there be more webisodes (if at all)? I'm also really hoping the doll-quality improves. I heard that their plan to boost MH doll sales with the reboot failed, so hopefully they've learned their lesson and won't repeat the same mistake . . .
Wasn't the last one when Maddie and Apple went to visit Crystal? Can't remember when it came out though, feels like a lifetime ago.
The fans are spreading rumours that there would be new special in this year but as there is nothing official I doubt it. Unless the Back to School is the movie line, which I doubt again. And I really doubt they learnt anything from MH looking at the lines they have brought out now. It's repeating the same excact mistake.
