News and Reviews of Monster High Dolls, Plush Toys, and More!

Mattel is doing the same shit as last year, basically if You DID NOT GET A DOLL TONIGHT, YOU WILL NOT GET ONE DURING CON.

The RULES ARE: 6 Dolls per badge, per time in line.

I was in the mattel line for an hour this evening, the dolls sold out by 7pm.

Meaning tomorrow, the dolls will start selling at 9am, when the mattel booth opens, vs. the general public is not allowed in until 930am.  Meaning the exhibitors will have access to all the dolls before anyone else is allowed in.  And yes, the dolls are being sold at Vendor Booths for 150$.  Why Mattel is allowing this i dont know. 

I was in the MH booth and one parent asked a mattel representative why the dolls are so hard to get.  He said to the parent to get there super early the next day.  WRONG.  It doesnt matter how early you get there, the exhibitors get EARLY ACCESS.

Nice to know, I think I'll sleep in tonight and get to the convention hall an hour or so before 930.

Eugh, it's so frustrating to hear they're pulling the same corrupt crap. Obviously the staff just don't give a damn.

What about the presales? When did they get their dolls?
Presales pick up orders from the fulfillment room not at Mattel booth. Their purchases are guaranteed.

I'm waving my proverbial pitchfork too.

Really this is SO STUPID.

And a dirty trick.

I'm still unhappy about Scarah and Hoodude being exclusive last year. I still don't have a set of them yet.

It sucks.

It feels like Californians are the world's biggest elitists: "Oh, you can't drop everything and travel cross-country/globe to be at the San Diego Comic Convention? Sounds like a personal problem!!! Too bad, so sad! Ha, Ha!"

Comic CON indeed.

No, the rest of us will have to be content with next year's selection of mass-marketed MH dolls, which will be any color you want provided you want pink.

How long until all the "monsters" are blonde too?

BARF.

Can someone explain to me why people are so mad at Comic-Con for exclusives? I mean, the companies are the ones who decide not the convention. So I'm always boggled at this much vitrol aimed at the location of an event that has zero decision on if a company makes a toy/item only available at the event instead of mass marketed. Any insight would help me understand.

Heres two choices....theres got to be lots more but im too tired from con to think about them...

Stand in line for 6 hours and then get told you cant purchase the toy you've been standing in line for.  

Be a parent who paid 175$ for a four day pass to get the doll for your daughter, then you cant purchase it because theyre all gone by the time you get to the booth.(i see this daily)

Talked to ppl at the Mattel booth yesterday, they are reducing the allotment per person from 6 to 2 starting today.
Well that's good about them reducing the number you can buy. Maybe their stock will last a bit longer then. Hope you get her and have fun at SDCC, MikeyC!

I think that the problem is that Mattel keeps releasing new characters as the Exclusives. If the character was someone we already know, like Black and White Frankie or Deadfast Ghoulia, obviously not everyone is going to like them. They will still sell, but not EVERYONE will want them. It's still a fan service, but it's not a middle finger, either. "Here's a new character in a version you're never going to own!!"

Hear, hear!  I'm one of them, and I live in the L.A. area (only about 2 hours from San Diego)!

Just because we live in the same state that San Diego is located doesn't mean that we can just drop everything and make a weekend jaunt to Comic-Con.  If you don't live in southern California, it's going to be a long, tedious drive.  If you're from the Bay Area (San Francisco/Oakland), that's like what, 9 hours?  Yikes.

That, and we have to buy our tickets, book our hotel rooms, and whatnot, and unlike Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, and other such places, there are no discounts for locals; we would have to pay the same prices to get into Comic-Con like everyone else, and not all of us have that kind of money to throw around.  Even if we did, I've heard that Comic-Con passes are very difficult to get, regardless of where in California, the rest of the U.S., or the rest of the world you might be.  

Heck, going to Vegas for the weekend is way easier and probably less crowded, even on a holiday weekend.

Some of us Californians couldn't drop everything and drive 6+ hours to San Diego or purchase tickets last year. :/

too bad they didn't do that from the beginning; after last year I really thought they'd limit everyone to 2. Honestly, no-one needs more than that. I'm sure someone out there has more than 2 kids that all want their own, but for 99% of the world 2 is enough.
