Hey Bratz Fans!

It’s that time of year again! Time for those fabulous bargain Bratz to start hitting shelves… in Canada! You all might be familiar with the $5 basic dolls that are released each year as a Black Friday deal for the USA, and an early treat for Canada. They’re Walmart exclusives, and always seem to be released in Canada before they hit the USA.

Anyway, they’ll reach the USA eventually, but for now all the Canadians out there (including berrybread) are super lucky!

Here are some pics!

As you can see, there are two options of Cloe, Yasmin, and Meygan. We totally love the new spin on some of our favourite fashions from past lines. For instance, Meygan’s printed version of “Trend it!” Sasha’s dress is SO cool!

Which ones are you going to get your hands 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.

Bratz:

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 🙂

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!

Check out these witchy playsets! The grand Piano plays music and vibrats, and the bed and vanity can transform and “walk” – We aren’t too sure what that means LOL! But totally wicked nonetheless

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 🙂

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!

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

Click to view full-size!

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!

What are your thoughts on the 2013 Black Friday Bratz? Let us know on facebook and twitter!

Hey Bratz Fans!

TaoBao never seems to disappoint! Tons of pics of the new dolls in their final stage have been revealed! Forget prototypes, we’ve got the real thing right here! This is the way the dolls will look when they hit shelves hopefully super soon…

ImageImageImage
Here we see Twisty Styles without all the fancy do-das in their hair, so don’t worry about that! They’ll look ever cooler once those all get put in! We’re really glad to see that the outfits really haven’t changed all that much, as we totally loved them as prototypes. Sadly the hair seems to be Nylon, which is a first for a Bratz hair-play line, BUT the colours are to die for (especially Jade’s)! As for the faces, they seem to have changed a little, but keeping the same basic idea in mind. Be sure to click the pictures for a closer look to see for yourself.

ImageImage
Here are Cloe and Jade from Costume Bash and we could not be happier with the turn out! Check out how much like the prototypes they are! Although, Cloe’s eyes seemed to have changed a tiny bit, as well as the colour of her streaks from purple to pink. Both dolls are flawless, we’re so excited! Can’t wait to see Yasmin eventually…

Image
Also, look at the back of the box! First of all, that artwork is SO COOL. And second, we love the promo MGA is adding on the back of the boxes. It’s bound to bring some new fans into the online world of Bratz!

ImageImageImage
Awww look at the basic Bratz! They look just like the prototypes, it’s great! Still looking fabulous as ever! Yasmin even seems to have make up that’s just a tiny bit lighter than her prototype, so that’s nice to see. Looking good, girls!

Image
Lastly we have the new basic Jade J’adore Bratzillaz! She’s definitely very…. red. Haha! We love the shoes, that’s an awesome mold, and the skirt is pretty funky too! But we wish we weren’t getting quite as strong of a Ronald McDonald vibe! 😛 Either way, we’re excited to see how the other girls turn out!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Today, Amazon has added photos to even more of its listings for this fall’s MGA dolls! We now have photos for Bratz Costume Bash, Bratz Basic Fall 2013, and Bratzillaz Back to Magic! Check ’em all out below.

First, here is the new Bratz Basic Yasmin, Cloe, and Jade! We added Sasha to the photo as well, though we already saw – and addressed – her the other day. How amazing is this collection?! The core four is dressed to impress in super trendy fashions that also have quite a bit of edge! Yasmin’s outfit is perhaps the most on-trend in our opinions. Just look at that floral denim!! And we’re very happy to see that shoe mold again. Cloe is a major favorite of ours as well. Her look is VERY urban and edgy! The high-waisted leather shorts are HOT, as is the netted top with purple leather bustier! We aren’t incredibly thrilled about her molded purple legs, but it really isn’t an issue, and just adds to the sassy, skin-tight look of her outfit! We will say we would have loved her to include the fingerless gloves and chain belt shown in her art, but with the basic boxes being half-exposed, it makes sense for MGA to omit pieces like that, which would be incredibly easy to steal. Jade is another stunner with her edgy “goth schoolgirl”-esque look! We are so stoked to see another Jade in pigtails, and the red streaks are just awesome – we were getting bored with all the pink! Her makeup is equally rad, with her deep red lips! The outfit Kool Kat is rockin’ is too cool as well! We are loving the use of plaid, as well as the kitty face on her top – definitely a throwback to Jade’s early wardrobe!! Like Cloe, Jade also has molded leggings, but it’s really not a big deal since this line isn’t articulated anyways. The new shoe mold on Jade is amazing! We are really happy to see so many new shoes this fall, and the fact that MGA is getting back to painting the molded details make them all even better!!

And now here is this year’s “Halloween” line – Bratz Costume Bash! This line is so cool because it takes the quirkiness of the old 2006-2008 Costume Party collections, and adds a touch of last year’s Chic Mystique over-the-top attitude! It appears there’s no Sasha in the line at the moment. Yasmin is going to the bash dressed a cute cowgirl with an adorable little pink and white hat (Which is a new mold!), a bandana scarf, a tiny badge (Love it!!), and some classic Bratz Wild Wild West boots! We’d also like to point out that all three dolls come with purses. Sadly, they aren’t fabric, but the fact that we’re getting this many accessories this fall is totally something to celebrate! Cloe is probably the most OTT, as a 70’s hippie chick! We’ll admit, this look is more of a typical costume store-style hippie than a legitimate one, but we suppose that was the point of the line! A Cloe dressed in trendy boho chic clothes wouldn’t make much sense for a Costume Bash 😉 Our absolute favorite thing about this Cloe would be her shoes. No, you aren’t seeing things, MGA is seriously bringing back the fan-favorite Bratz Princess shoes for this line! We also love her long, super-curly hair and funky purple streaks! Jade would have to be our all-time favorite of the line, hands down. We don’t quite understand why she’s a gingerbread girl for Halloween – but Jade’s always been known for her quirky cool style! This doll is just SO cool and unique! From the intricately-styled white and red hair (peep the awesome “cookie” accessory!) to her (molded) stripey peppermint leggings, she is just so well put together! The little bowtie was a really great touch in our opinions! Also, note the new-new brushes. MGA updated them with the current Bratz logo!

And last, but most definitely not least, are Bratzillaz Back to Magic Victoria Antique, Sashabella Paws, and Meygana Broomstix! It appears the dolls we saw last time were very late prototypes, as these are a little different, and in our opinions, even better! We’re assuming Jade J’Adore and Illiana Honesty are shipped in a later assortment, as these three keep appearing together. First is Victoria Antique, who we are still totally loving! She hasn’t changed much from the last photo we saw, though now we can get a view of her witchmark (A snake! And all this time, we thought she was dragon-inspired) and her pet in the box (A wicked cute little turtle-esque creature). The box also reveals that her fave class is “The Science of Brew & Renew”, as her power is taking something old and making it new again! Next is Sashabella, who we are honestly so much more impressed with now! We’re so happy to see that she’s finally got some completely new makeup, with that fun bright palette on her eyes, and slightly more purple lips! The outfit hasn’t changed much, which is fine by us. We are beyond ecstatic to see that the dolls include fabric purses just like the Toy Fair prototypes we exclusively revealed! Meygana also got her glasses back, and traded in her completely braided hair for just a few braids in the front. Her outfit isn’t too different either, though the cape is now argile and doesn’t have the embroidered pattern on it. Worth noting is the new text on the box: “Bratzillaz House of Witchez”. We have no clue what this could be, though we are working on getting an answer if we can! It is interesting that “Glam Gets Wicked” is nowhere in sight, and the Bratzillaz name itself is considerably smaller than the new phrase. One guess we have is that it’s the name of a possible TV special or DVD? We already know that the Witchy Princess segment will have a detailed plot totally worthy of some form of media, so we don’t see why the witchez’ new casual looks couln’t be included in that if it were to happen 😉

UPDATE! One of our amazing friends at MGA has let us know that the “House of Witchez” tagline is NOT the title of anything upcoming, but rather a new way to let consumers know what the brand is about and that the ‘Zillaz are WITCHEZ. This is an awesome response to the ignorant haters, if we do say so ourselves!

So, what are your thoughts on these new fall segments? Let us know on facebook and twitter!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Our great friend and reader Justin shared with us these new stock photos for the Bratz Fall 2013 Basic Sasha doll, courtesy of her amazon listing! It appears that the line has no name right now, so “Basic” is what we’ll be referring to it as until it gets one (if it does)

The first thing we notice is her recycled Boutique face, and even the similar hairstyle! Of course, she’s SUPER pretty, but we do wish she were a whole new doll. None of the others in the line have photos yet, so our fingers are crossed that Dana and Kumi aren’t using Cloe and Jade’s faces! Moving on from the head, her outfit is really cute! From what we’ve seen so far, it looks like MGA is going for a bit of a retro feel this fall, with Sasha’s bell sleeves and bold, BRIGHT, pattern. We LOVE this dress! The leggings aren’t necessary though, in our opinions.

We totally LOVE the box design for the new basic segment! It’s simple but very effective with its bold, graphic look. Notice that “Unleash Your Passion!” has replaced “The Girls With a Passion for Fashion!” in the bottom banner. We’re surprised that the box still says “Psst! I’m taller!”, as that will be old news by the time the fall Bratz hit shelves.

So, what do you all think of Miss Bunny Boo in her new fall basic look? Let us know on facebook and twitter!

UPDATE! Our friend Connor has pointed out on facebook that this doll appears to lack arm articulation! That’s just odd! I guess we’ll know for sure if any of the dolls are wearing something sleeveless?
