HQ Photos of the Bratzillaz Prototypes!
June 3, 2012
Hey Bratz Fans!
This must be Bratzillaz week, because we’re getting updates like crazy! So far we’ve shared information on previously-unannounced products, photos of finished dolls, fashions, pets, and more, and today the update parade continues with some nice, clear and correctly-colored photos of the Bratzillaz prototypes! These all come from a print ad running in select Toy Industry magazines throughout the United Kingdom. They’re super clear and reveal several details that the last prototype photo did not!
Of course we’ll have to start by addressing Sashabella Paws, as she’s the only doll we hadn’t seen anything of other than art until now! While, we are keeping in mind that what we are looking at is a prototype, we can’t help but squee – she’s flawless! We absolutely adore her pink and green color scheme, and the fact that she’s rockin’ some reptilian skins definitely ties into the fan predictions that line would have something to do with lizards. She looks funky & fierce with her fur too, and we hope that her boots change to the furry ones pictured in her art!
Another highlight of the bunch is Meygana Broomstix! While we have seen her final doll by now, we still appreciate her gorgeous prototype. We must admit, we so wish she had kept the pleats in her skirt! But other than that, her finished doll really isn’t too different from what we’re seeing here, which is a good sign for the two dolls whose finished products we haven’t seen yet! Her top appears to have been switched to a different pattern, but still looks as though it may be snakeskin in production. It’s really interesting to see that she has actually had this natural skintone all along, rather than the pinker tone everybody thought she had from the badly-colored photo we were going by before. Also worth noting is that her goggles were never actually goggles to begin with – just a mask made from fabric rather than plastic! All in all, we’re both psyched to add this bewitching beauty to our collections.
Jade J’Adore is another ‘zilla that everyone’s excited for! She’s also another who we have seen finished, and we’re very pleased to see that she’s almost identical to her prototype! As a matter of fact, the only differences are that the final doll has a brand new shoe mold, brand new earring mold, a new hat (though we will miss those feathers!), the school’s crest was added to her cape, and the materials on her purse have changed. Seeing how closely she resembles her prototype, she’s already cast her love spell on us! 😉
Next of course is Cloetta Spelletta, a wicked witch with split personalities – and two looks to match! Her whole look is certainly one of the more interesting, as she is literally split down the middle! One side features her in an edgy black and silver number, with a puffy sleeve, bold black streaks in her hair, darker lipstick, and a piercing blue eye! The other shows off her sweeter side, in an all-pink ensemble, with reddish pink lips and a beautiful brown eye. Cloetta is one who we’re still yet to see in her final stage, but we’re hoping she stays pretty close to what we see here.
And speaking of “seeing”, Yasmina Clairvoya could already sense she would be next, what with her all-seeing-eye mask and “special vision”. 😉 Yasmina is one whose final doll has been seen, and we can see that while her look is generally the same, many details have been changed. For instance, while her prototype sports plain cargo pants, the finished product will be steppin’ out in glamorous gold pants. As is true for all five dolls, she’s been given a new shoe mold as well, and her witch hat has been changed as well – and for the better! While her prototype’s hat was simply a purple hat, her final doll appears to have one molded out of her braids! The design of her top has changed somewhat too. Before, she had on a plain purple tube top with a corset-like ribbon design on the front, along with a (big surprise) lizard skin bolero, and now she’s got a similar top only the lizard skin has fused with it to create a much more interesting piece! The material on her cape is different as well, but that’s no biggie. Regardless, we’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for this Wicked Princess!
So while some have changed more than others from prototype to production, MGA’s been much better about staying true with these than they have in the past, and we’ve got our fingers crossed that the same can be said for the Bratz! Keep checkin’ back for more exciting updates on the Bratzillaz, and other Bratz products!
Stay Tuned & Stay Stylin’!
