Hey everyone! New collector here, I’ve been watching the Monster High webisodes for a while now and buying the occational small piece of merch (pens, notepads, etc.) but not the actual dolls until now. Inspired by another doll collector – she’s quite famous and collects more than Monster High – I’ve decided to go in and start collecting Abbey dolls and occationally branch out into others.
At the moment I have a Coffin Bean and Music Festival Abbey and an Avea Trotter (HOW COULD I SAY NO TO HER?!). I plan to get the original Abbey next, then track down an original Catty Noir as I ADORE her colour scheme. Then more Abbeys, with Neighton Rot being the biggest priority ‘other’ doll and MAYBE a Venus and Robecca, though Venus is not my favourite character despite her lovely design.
My favourite monster? Obviously, ABBEY BOMINABLE! To be honest, I came into Monster High for Clawdeen, but I stay for Abbey. Her deep voice, brilliant humour (‘HA! I am winner! In your grill!’/’You two argue like baby yak at mealtime *bleating noises*’), lovely design, her positive bluntness (forcing a Crescent High and Belfry Prep student to dance to get the party going in Fright On!), all of that make her easily my favourite monster. Not a fan at all of the Heath/Abbey hints though, I honestly don’t think they’d be a good couple XD
I also love Clawdeen, Robecca is growing on me, LOVE the Cleo/Deuce relationship moments, I could go on. The webisodes are funny, clever and I am in love with the animation. I’m going through the catalogue of movies/TV specials and have seen ‘New Ghoul @ School’, ‘Fright On!’ ’13 Wishes’ and ‘Ghouls Rule’. I muuuuuuuch prefer the 2D animated features and really wish Mattel had stuck with that style rather than go 3D but oh well.
I agree with the sentiment that there are too many Werecats in the cast now, I am hoping for a Loch Ness Monster ghoul (C’mon, they can name her Nessa McLochlan, the last name being a twist on the Scottish last name McLaughlan. They’re even pronounced extremely similarly, the soft ‘ch’ sound is in both) since I’m Scottish, and … MORE ABBEY PLX.
So, that’s all!
