It’s been a LONG time since we last updated, but finally there is news to share! Today one of our Canadian bestiez, Nik, found the all-new Bratz Action Heroez Roxxi & Phoebe dolls at Toys R Us! He snapped two shots of Phoebe for us, and bought her, so check out his flickr for pix later on!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Thanks to our super-sleuthing abilities, we’ve tracked down the prototypes for some of this fall’s Bratz & Bratzillaz offerings – even some things that haven’t come out yet!

Keep in mind that everything pictured are EXTREMELY early prototypes and the new things shown here will either be very different or may not even come out at all! This is just to see for fun.

My Passion is actually almost identical to the final dolls! Jade’s changed the most, going from this amazing full-pink bob to her signature jet black with pink highlights. Yasmin’s bag also went from black to electric lime green πŸ™‚

And here’s Action Heroez, who clearly have gone through several changes – including dropping Jade all-together in place of Shira, Phoebe, and Roxxi! While we ADORE these prototypes and would L.O.V.E. them to look like these, we aren’t too let down by the final dolls, since they’re so diferent! Love those funky sunglasses/hero masks.

Costume Bash’s fashions didn’t change too much, just a few cut details here and there. Overall, we aren’t bothered by the changes – though a Yasmin with full pink hair would be totally cool!

How freaky is it seeing Totally Polished on SHORT bodies?! And Cloe and Yasmin x2? LOL! Fashions didn’t really change at all except for Yasmin – love the princess heels and different tights!

OMG y’all, new shoe packs! No guarantee that these will come out, but we can hope so! There’s supposed to be three packs (We’re assuming each row is a pack; One boots, one ankle boots, one heels, and one sneakers) and we LOVE all the different colors and the mix of old and new molds!

And here are the protos for the fall 2013 Basic line!! Yasmin’s only major change is her fur, Jade’s only ditched her socks and arm-warmers (and glasses, but they look a little odd anyways :P), and Cloe’s changed the most, though we honestly prefer the refined look of her final doll! Love the leopard print though.

And now for Bratzillaz – TONS of stuff coming from the witches!

You might remember this horse from our “Fall Preview” article – well now we’ve got a better look! The name of the line (or the horse – we aren’t entirely positive) is Crystal Ice Princess and this amazing horse has a bone structure that glows in the dark! As well as three color-change lights in side – totally wicked!

OMG a Bratzillaz car! Again, not guaranteed to come out, but we really hope so! This RC car has real working lights and transforms into a vanity for the Bratzillaz to use!

A better look at the Bratzillaz Back to Magic prototypes we revealed back in April! Victoria really didn’t change at all, Sashabella is a little interesting, as is Jade, and Meygana’s googly-eyed purse makes us LOL!

And here you can see the prototypes for the fall 2013 budget ‘Zillaz! Jade didn’t change much at all aside from articulation (But who didn’t see that coming anyways?), and Yasmina was dropped entirely! She looks wicked cute though πŸ™‚

And the BEST for LAST, check out three of the Bratzillaz Witchy Band dolls! These are AMAZING, look at all those details!!! The final dolls, if they come out, obviously won’t be as insanely detailed for a playline price, but we really hope to see them come out and look pretty similar like Witchy Princess!! Just LOOK AT THEM!!! Agh, perfection ❀

Hey Bratz Fans!

Alex here, to fill everybody in on the super awesome new Bratz Action Heroez app out now! We posted a little about it on our facebook pageΒ and some of our readers wanted to know more about this amazing app! Hopefully I can cover everything with this πŸ™‚

There's more than one way to save the day! Click to view full size.

There’s more than one way to save the day! Click to view full size.

The first thing you’ll notice in the home screen is that thare are two ways to play! “Adventure” mode does not require a Bratz Action Heroez figurine or AR matt (Though it can be enhanced with them – I’ll cover that later) and is the “main game” of the app. “Virtual Experience” mode has several features involving the figurines and matts, which are not only fun on their own, but can also enhance gameplay in “Adventure” mode, which again, I’ll cover later in this piece.

First up, here’s Adventure Mode!

Bratz Action Heroez to the rescue! Click to view full size.

Bratz Action Heroez to the rescue! Click to view full size.

In Adventure mode, you play as Yasmin (Unless you have any of the figures & mats for other characters, in which case you can switch and play as any of the ones you’ve unlocked with the mat) who is now an Action Hero, and are introduced to the city of Passionview. After fixing a broken fountain, you meet Evilla Vanderbelt (pictured above), the villainess of the game whose mission is to suck all the color out of Passionview, and eventually the world! The first step to stopping her is to destroy her troll-esque minions that are wreaking havoc all around the city! To do this, you run around, hunt them down and use your super powers (Depending on which doll you’re playing as; Yasmin’s tornado twirl, Cloe’s speed dash, Shira’s angel flight, Roxxi’s fire whip, or Phoebe’s ice shield!) and the kicking action to destroy them all! Since the game has only been out for about two days now, it’s still in version 1.0, so your next mission after killing off the minions is still locked, but we’re excited to play it when the first update comes out! For now, I’ll cover some of the other exciting features in Adventure mode.

The city of Passionview is totally huge, and covered in beautiful Bratz billboards! So far, I’ve seen the 2010 basic art, Twisty Style Jade’s, and the four girlz in their “branding” outfits we wrote about when the BratzCam app launched. Fun little Easter Egg: One of the shirts on the clothing racks actually has some cute throwback Yasmin art on it from 2007! So far, I’ve explored enough to see Passionview’s beach, market, Colliseum, drive-in theater, the fashion district, the town center, and of course all the buildings and alleyways. Surrounding the city are several fantasy-themed locations too, though none are available yet (They’ll be unlocked in further updates), they all look really cool!

Check out the signs - SO many places to visit soon! Click to view full size.

And now for the “Virtual Experience Mode”!

As you can see, there's TONS to do! Click to view full size.

This mode makes use of the cute Action Heroez figurines and AR mats included with the dolls, unlocking each character, as well as six fashions for each, individual “training” minigames, and more!

Not pictured: Yasmin's My Passion outfit, but that's available too! Click to view full size.

When you choose the fashion option and scan your figure, you insantly unlock their fashion line – six outfits that you can now wear in Adventure Mode, as well as “Party Mode” (Which I’ll cover next). I’ve only got Yasmin, Cloe, and Shira at the moment, so I’m really excited to see what new fashions the Twiins will unlock! Shira borrows Sasha’s (unreleased) Twisty Style fashion, her My Passion look, her Xpress it! outfit, “branding” fashion, fall 2013 basic look, and of course Shira’s own Action Heroez suit! Cloe’s fashions come from her fall basic doll, Twisty Style, Xpress it!, My Passion, All Glammed Up Designer Streaks, and of course her Action Heroez doll. Yasmin’s are from her My Passion, fall basic, Xpress it!, Rock, and Action Heroez dolls, plus an unknown fashion (center), with a cute striped top!

The Party Mode in the virtual experience allows you to scan more than one figure and watch them interact with each other! Each of the figures will greet each other differently, which is totally cute, and as you can see, they stay in the outfits you picked out in the fashion feature!

Each character will also unlock her own “training” minigame when scanned! These are not only super fun on their own, but with each level you pass, the character’s power actually increases in the Adventure Mode game! In Cloe’s game, you’ve got to dodge bombs being dropped while using her Speed Dash power to destroy the evil bugs and troll minions! How gross are those bugs?! LOL! Shira’s game is kind of like Action Heroez dodgeball, using her angel flight powers, you have to avoid the evil eyeballs running towards you. Yasmin’s minigame uses her Tornado Twirl to bust open boulders and unleash the flowers inside of them! All three are really fun, and surprisingly pretty challenging since you’re timed! It all pays off to boost your in-game power though πŸ˜‰

So, that is the super awesome new Bratz Action Heroez app, available now in the app store for iPhone/iPod touch and iPad! Get it here πŸ˜€Β if enough Bratzies get it (It’s free!), maybe it could even chart for a bit like the Style Starz app did last fall!

Be sure to check out my video review on the Bratz Action Heroez Yasmin, Cloe, and Shira dolls below too!

Hey Bratz Fans!

First came Roxxi, and now her twin sis Phoebe has shown up on taobao! Thanks to our friend Sailorb1959 for sharing the scoop with us! Check her out 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™‚

Spice is BACK! Click to view full-size!

Spice is BACK! Click to view full-size!

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!

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!

What are your thoughts on these cool new dolls? Let us know on facebook and twitter!
