Hey Bratz Fans!

Alex here with the third installment in our “Up Close & Magical” series, where we review new Bratzillaz characters and products if either of us are the first to get them! Today, I’m wicked psyched to introduce Victoria Antique from the new Back to Magic line for fall!

Here's Victoria new in her box! Click to view full size.

Here’s Victoria new in her box! Click to view full size.

Victoria is one of the two new foreigh exchange students enrolling in Bratzillaz Academy with this line, the other being Illiana Honesty, who comes from India. Victoria is Chinese, and as her last name suggests, she has the power to take something old and make it good as new! Her fave class is “The Science of Brew & Renew” and her pet is an adorable little dragon/turtle hybrid whose name is currently unknown.

Above is the back of her box, where you can see a small bio for her, plus our first look at Illiana Honesty on the bottom! We definitely can’t wait for her to come out! Victoria’s bio says “I Make Things New! Power: If you’ve got treasure that’s falling apart, Victoria Antique gives it a new start! What her friends love about her: That she sees the beauty under the dust and cobwebs”. We also get a peak at her witchmark, which is a snake. Hopefully, we’ll learn one of her spells soon! πŸ™‚

And now onto the doll herself! How absolutely stunning is her face?! She’s super exotic looking, which I love. Her brows are really cool and point outwards, making her look a bit more dragon-esque. As is always the case with Bratzillaz, her eyes are just gorgeous! Admittedly, they aren’t as thrilling as Fianna Fins’ or the Switch-A-Witch single pack doll’s, but still really pretty nonetheless! They’re made to look like those of a dragon or a snake. Around her eyes are cool dragon scales done in a really nice jade green and gold combo! Her “regular” eye makeup is a very bold gold, too. Her lips really “POP” with a bright orange shade as well!

Just another look at the cool design on her face, and her earrings! Click to view full size.

Her outfit’s pretty awesome, too. She’s rockin’ a “playsuit” with super short-shorts under a top with a long flowing sleeve on one arm, and a cape over the other. One side of the top Β is a super-cute plaid pattern with little fire symbols all over it, adding to her dragon-inspired appeal! The other side is just a simple black satin. Over her stomach and chest underneath the top has a wicked snakeskin print – Very cool!! And wrapped around that is a small gold and black rope used as a belt. On her legs are some super-cool thigh high leg warmers, made of black fishnet material, and layered under a larger, sparkly gold fishnet material!

And over those cool leg warmers are her amazing snake heels! As you can see, they’re black with little cut-outs in the heels, and then wrapped around the doll’s legs are molded snakes! That is such a cool detail!!

Well, that’s the new Bratzillaz Back to Magic Victoria Antique doll! Expect to see her on store shelves soon. In the meantime, you can check out tons more pix of her and the other Back to Magic ‘Zillaz on my flickr, and watch my video review of her, Sashabella, and Meygana below!

OMG! Phoebe is working it! Her hairstyle is kind of like her Play Sportz Softball doll from back in ’06, but with cute pink streaks and a little braid across the top! We’re so happy to see more legitimate hair styles on the girlz this fall ❀ We also take back what we said about Roxxi’s makeup being a little Phoebe-esque, ‘cuz Sugar right here has the quintessenial Phoebe makeup! It’s almost like her first edition Twiins palette on a new screening! We’re also loving her dress, and knowing that the belts are separate, it could be a cute neon party dress too!

Hey Bratz Fans!

We’ve FINALLY got a look at the new Bratz Action Heroez Roxxi doll, thanks to our fave site TaoBao and our friend Harvey for letting us know about her! Check her out below πŸ™‚

WOW, love her! We will admit her makeup is a little more Phoebe’s style with that gorgeous hot pink lip, but Roxxi is working it and lookin’ totally gorgeous! And notice that she DOES have the twiins’ signature auburn hair color (With some minty streaks mixed in to match her outfit of course)! She’s got a cool action suit like Shira and Cloe, while Phoebe has on a dress like Yas. From the looks of it, their “POW” belts are separate, too. Can’t wait to see Phoebe!

What do you all think of the return of the Spice girl? Let us know on facebook or twitter!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Thanks again to Very.Co.Uk, we’ve got photos of all three Bratzillaz Witchy Princess dolls in their late prototype stages! Check ’em out below

WOW! How wicked amazing are these forgotten princesses?! The amount of detail put into them is just breath-taking! They may be prototypes, but if we’ve learned anything from the Back to Magic late protos from WalMart.ca, the final dolls most likely won’t be too different at all! That’s just amazing, considering they’re only 17pounds, and probably USD$16.77-$19.99! Our favorite has to be Carolina Past, though we’re totally blown away by the entire group!! Love all the netting and “tattered yet glam” look of everything!!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Much speculation has been made over how this year’s Black Friday Bratz will look, with the Bratz being taller and all (Obviously it would cost more money to produce larger outfits and longer hair for a $5 doll, right?), and now thanks to TaoBao, we can get a sneak peek at how they’ll look! Check out Yasmin below

It looks to us like the Black Friday dolls will be shorter, using the 2010-2012 bodies! Yasmin’s face appears to be the same as her 2012 dolls’, and since Cloe & Meygan are once again in the line, we’re going to assume that their faces are recycled as well. Looking at the small group picture on the back of Yasmin’s box, it looks like the fashions will be a mix of totally new designs, and re-colored versions of last year’s clothes. We love Pretty Princess’ chich black & white top and shimmery pleated mini skirt!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Tropisounds, who made the fab Bratz Style Starz and Bratzillaz apps for MGA last fall, have once again teamed up with our girlz to bring out the new Bratz Cam app, available now in the app store! Bratz Cam is kind of an extended, updated version of the camera feature in the Style Starz app, with more fun filters, frames, and stickers than SS!

One of the best things about the app, from a Bratz fanatic’s point of view at least, is all the new art for fall that comes with the app! In the sticker feature, there’s a ton of art for this fall’s lines that you can slap onto your pix and resize & rotate to your liking. Fans will notice stuff from My Passion, Costume Bash, and Action Heroez, plus a new mysterious set of art that we’re trying to find out more about!

How awesome are they?! Hopefully this is a new line coming out, and not just more “concept art” that the Bratz designers love to do πŸ˜›

Hey Bratz Fans!

Thanks to one of our besties, Nik, we now have a promo pic of the new Bratzillaz Back to Magic Jade J’Adore doll! This photo comes from Very.co.uk, a shopping site in the United Kingdom. Check her out below!

WOW! How wicked is she?! This look is SO much better than the fall basic Jade we saw on taobao the other day. It’s great to see Miss J’Adore switchin’ up her hair colors, and that OUTFIT is just perfect! It almost looks like she took some style pointers from her Bratz cousin Jade! πŸ˜‰ Keep in mind that this is a late prototype though, very much like the original promos we saw for Back to Magic Meygana, Sashabella, and Victoria, and some minor details will probably be changed, but she’ll likely stay almost exactly like this in production just like the others.

Hey Bratz Fans!

Tonight, Bratz My Passion and Bratz Action Heroez (again just Yasmin, Cloe, and Shira) have hit everybody’s favorite Chinese auction site, taobao! This isn’t major news, but it’s great to see these dolls all boxed up and exactly as they’ll appear on store shelves! Plus, we finally get a look at how Phoebe and Roxxi will turn out! Check ’em all out below.

First, here’s My Passion! A HUGE thank you to one of our besties, Sailorb1959 for sharing these! The box design for My Passion is really cool and fresh! We can’t think of any other time where we saw the entire art for each girl on the front of their boxes – drawn even bigger than the dolls themselves! Sasha and Cloe totally have the best art in our opinions, though they’re all super cute! Jade, the doll, is looking very saran as well πŸ˜‰

How super-cool are the Heroez’ art? We are living for Shira’s heroic pose! The most interesting thing about these boxes is towards the bottom though…

Our “Wonder Twiins” are looking super so far! The photo isn’t very clear, so we can’t really see any details, but we think their colors compliment each other well, though pastel pink and black were always more Phoebe’s colors πŸ˜‰ Something that we’ve all been worried about is what color hair the dolls will have. In their last appearance in 2010, the original twosome were sporting very bland, brown hair as opposed to their signature auburn and black locks. Since the back of the box is black, it’s hard to determine whether that is the case again here, or if they do in fact have their original colors in a darker shade (Think Birthday Bash Phoebe) – we’ll have to wait and see! The powers each girl has is too cute! Phoebe has an “ice shield”, while her twiin works the “fire whip”, Cloe can speed dash, Shira can fly, and Yasmin can… twirl? LOL! We love it!

Hey Bratz Fans!

We have SO much love for Amazon right now! Today, they finally added photos to their listings for three of the five Bratz Action Heroez dolls! The Bratz “wonder twiins” Roxxi and Phoebe are yet to be seen, but for now we have the amazing Yasmin, Cloe, and Shira! Check ’em all out below.

How awesome are they?! We love that Bratz are continuing to take on themes that would usually be considered “kiddy” (Like mermaids, princesses, and now super-heroes) and doing them in a totally new and edgy Bratz way by incorporating real current trends! We are all over the BRIGHT, neon look on these girlz – they are totally in with the recent trend of colorful sporty-inspired dresses. Yasmin is the most colorful of the three, with that eye-popping electric lime green, black, and magenta look! Her hair is kind of like Neon Runway Sasha’s, which we love since that doll was never released! As usual, Bratz are killing it with their big variety of materials on a single outfit. On Yasmin alone, we can count at least four different fabrics! All the netting is awesome, though we do wish it were “stretched” a bit more, to make it more obvious that it is in fact netting. Her stockings are super cute, and the SHOES on all three are just to die for!! Again, totally trendy at the moment! We LOVE the colors, and the clear plastic platforms! The girlz can really kick out the competition now with all these new shoes for fall πŸ˜‰ Cloe is totally cute too! Her outfit isn’t as over-the-top as Yasmin’s, but just as awesome! We LOVE the spandex and the symmetrical cut-outs on her legs and torso areas! The little “Pow!” belts on all three were a really great touch, too. Finally, is the return of SHIRA! We loved “Drama Mama” in 10/10/10, but we must say this look for her is even better! The light grey eye color looks awesome against her darker skin tone, and her makeup palette is super cool! Her outfit is a suit like Cloe’s with cut-outs, though Shira’s aren’t symmetrical and give more of a “ripped” appearance. The cut out over her stomach gives us a perfect view of the new surprise torso jointΒ we’re getting! We can totally sacrifice articulation on the basic lines if it means getting even more on the big ones!

Each doll in the Action Heroez line comes with a new Bratz brush and an adorable figurine that unlocks activities in an upcoming Bratz Action Heroez app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch! We can’t wait to play!

So what do YOU think of the new Bratz Action Heroez? Do they save your day or leave you hangin’? Let us know on facebook and twitter!
