It'll be interesting to see if all three go into production eventually or not. I would vote for the Headless Headmistress, but it looks like voting is limited to SDCC attendees. The one on the left (confirmed as Scarah Screams) is a close second. I like the concept of the one on the right (confirmed as Daughter of Arachne), but the execution not so much. I guess she's the one with the pet called Memphis "Daddy O" Longlegs?
Toralei looks great, but isn't much of a surprise after the bio reveals. I'm expecting Nefera in Saturday's coffin-locker reveal. Speaking of coffin-lockers, picked up new Classroom assortment today (for anyone interested, the lockers do make cool background display pieces and ARE designed to be stackable), as well as Day at the Maul pack...A little odd the next Classroom assortment will be fashion packs only...still no DOtD2 for me lol...Seems the Fear Squad pack and Clawdeen's "Room to Howl" Dead Tired playset are really starting to pop up out there!
Found a case of DotD2 just put out at K-Mart today! Still no sightings of GB 5-Pack at Targets here, though I here most Targets are resetting on the 30th.
saw a bunch of the 5 packs at my target last night in manahawkin NJ
Picked up the Gloom Beach boxed set today (52.99 @ Target) and the 'Killer Style' duo...
I understand the GB set is controversial, but it's a must for MIB collectors (not to mention Ghoulia fans - check out that brain bag)! Beautiful set which really sells the GB line much better than the previously shipped assortment (which I passed on til now). The size alone makes it a cool piece. There's even a handle up top to carry it by.
The 'Killer Style' dolls are an interesting pair. Much like the 'School's Out' assortment, these are not labeled as such on the package, but were apparently solicited to retailers under this moniker, thus the name has stuck. So far they only appear to be popping up at smaller mom & pop shops and discount chains, not surprising considering the price-point and lack of new tooling. Cases consist of Frankie and Draculaura: you're basically looking at GB Draculaura in the Day at the Maul fashion pack outfit & GB Frankie (w/DT Frankie's hair) in the DatM fashion pack outfit (sans shopping bags & other accessories, PLUS new keychains). For casual collectors, there's really no reason to get these AND the DatM fashion pack. But as these two don't seem to be shipping to the big retailers, they could become rarer pieces down the road.
So why is the GB set controversial?
