yes, I am a hardcore completest.
I even have the kohls killer style dolls AND the same clawdeen and operetta in their fashion packs
sort of, I started collecting half way so I missed out on some early releases but now I get all the ones I can which is most of them unless they are U.S only, but I have to have all characters, I am hoping one day I might be able to get some of the older ones I have been missing, I guess I feel the need to get every one I just love it.
I'm not really a completest i just buy what i can afford as much as i can lol.
Older dolls aren't on my radar unless they are in stores lol.
I'm really close to being a "completist". The few I don't have are either out of my budget (first couple CCs) or I don't really like them. I have all play sets. I don't think I'm going to get anymore playsets though.
Nope, not at all. Quite far from it.
I buy every doll of Spectra, Jinafire and Honey, and about 85% of the dolls for Operetta, Venus and Lagoona.
I also bought Sirena, Vandala, River and Kiyomy, and might buy other versions of them, if there are any in the future. Due to a very special exception, I bought Haunted Rochelle and Haunted Twyla, even though I'm usually not a fan of Rochelle and Twyla. I might buy Amanita, if I actually like her once I finally see her in person. As for all the other ghouls, and all the monsters, I have zero interest in them, so I'm quite far from being a completist.
yes i am.
i started collecting MH in may 2013 when my BF introduced me to the brand while we were roaming the toy isle in a mall. We both fell in love with scaris skelita - i mean an actual skeleton doll with an amy winehouse updo? i was sold. He decided to only get the scaris line. I made some research online and i started saving pics. i fell in love with every small detail, the fact that each character had it's theme and so on. but there were too many dolls. I was like "i can only do the basics, that would be ok" boy was i wrong. I started loving each and every different accessory on every doll version... i mean HOW could you choose between basic and scaris rochelle? get 'em both.
now it's 2 years later, i own practically every doll that's been out in the 2010-2014 period. and boy that was a loooot of dolls to catch up. i'm only missing SDCC Frankie, because she costs an arm and a leg, but i'm not giving up, she'll be mine someday.
i only have a few exceptions. I mean, i consider myself a completist in my own way, that being
- NO ghouls alive dolls. Sorry but the gimmicks ruin the dolls and their clothes are hideous in quality
- NO DOUBLES: that means the dance class line i own is made of the 5 pack and single Howleen. No need to get single lagoona, becca and oppy since they were in a 5 pack. That also mean i don't own killer style Khol's because they had separate fashion packs (although the dolls have different hairs from the others, so maybe one day...)
and until this day i was able to keep EVERYTHING in box. I'm seriously starting to think i want to move to a bigger place just so i don't have to unbox anything, but i know the day will come. I got the school, the catacombs all boxed up... that's a shame. I'd love to have a toy room one day to display everything. and to mix and match their clothes.
i'm also trying to be an EAH completist, but Mattel kicked me in the groin by changing the boxes after nearly 1 year of collecting, and i was so upset. Don't get me started on the whole US exclusives deal.
Thank god i made an amazing doll buddy/FRIEND in the US thanks to this forum that helps me with all that won't come out in Italy.
I also own all of the playsets and i'm making my way through the CAMS although i find some of them really useless. I've yet to decide what i want to do with the vinyls and i know for sure i never want to even touch a fright-mare.
it's actually kinda strange - he collects MH and lately a lot of barbies (style, top model, black labels) because as a kid his parent forbidden him to play with dolls. Now whenever he has some spare money he gets some. I collected dolls long before him, instead, but completely forgotten about it for over a decade (i collected My Scene barbie dolls and some Bratz back in 2000's, when i was 18 yo, always thanks to a previous relationship who introduced me to the world of doll collecting) i still own all those dolls and clothes but they're at my parent's house.
then i moved to Milan to study and didn't have that much money, i was very into TV series so i bought a lot of DVD's (that i later sold since everything is available online nowadays, i only kept the few i really loved) then i collected Animated transformers action figures, which was something completely new to me since i never liked robots and transformers as a kid, but i loved that animated series. (still own those)
Then i lost 22 Kg in one year dieting, and most of my money went into buying new clothes since i was so excited i could fit a medium size again. Then this new relationship started, and we discovered toy collecting as a common interest, we like to drive around finding new malls and toy stores and we spend hours deciding what to pick with our money, on amazon, or wherever we can.
