NEW Novi Stars for 2014!

October 10, 2014

Hey Bratz – and Novi Stars – Fans!

We’ve got some totally cosmic, and quite surprising news: There are in fact brand new Novi Stars dolls for 2014! You all might remember earlier this year, when we confirmed that the brand (As well as Bratzillaz) would be taking an “international holiday” of sorts during 2014, and not a peep about them has been heard since! Until now, that is. Four brand new characters in the Supernovas and Novi Stars Invasion lines have been spotted on several Russian shopping sites! Check ’em out below.

This is definitely out-of-this-world and unexpected! We’re happy to see MGA is keeping their word on the Novis, and it gives us hope for the ‘Zillaz, too! These four new invaders are all really cute and cleverly-designed (Though we must admit the budget seems considerably lower than when they were a full brand) and should they ever hit North America, we’ll be picking them up! As for where anyone else can, it’s hard to say! They’ve only been seen on Russian websites so far, but it’s totally possible they could be going to the UK and other countries as well. We’ll be sure to ask our peeps at MGA and give you all the scoop when we get it!

Hey Bratz & Novi Stars Fans!

Sorry for not posting in a little bit – there just hasn’t been much news for Bratz or Bratzillaz recently! But another MGA doll brand, Novi Stars, has been getting a lot of buzz lately in the community after a rumor that they would be cancelled next year hit the net. While there’s been plenty of speculation about their cancellation, we wanted to get the full scoop, so we asked one of our great friends on the Novi Stars team about it!

It was confirmed that at the moment, there definitely will not be any new Novi Stars products for spring 2014, but that the fall 2013 line is still going to store shelves (Many of the new dolls have actually been out for a little while now!) and it was also made clear to us that Novi as a whole is not “cancelled” or “discontinued” just yet, and that if sales pick up dramatically this fall, it’s VERY likely that we’ll see more from them in the future! Our cosmic pal also added  that “Things change from week to week or even day to day [at MGA]. Hardly anything is ever set in stone.” and reminded us that “It’s all about sales numbers. If people don’t buy, stores don’t order new product. They won’t take a risk on something with a small interest group”

So that’s the official word on Novi Stars at the moment! If you’re after anything from the new fall lines, we would definitely recommend grabbing them while you can, and be sure to spread the word to all the Novi fans you know. If sales go up a lot, the brand can easily be saved! We know there are a lot of older collectors who like the Novi Stars, so we did suggest to our friend on Team Novi that they could possibly rebrand as something more geared towards an older audience with lower production, and that idea has been forwarded to the head of the Novis. Keep your fingers (and antennae) crossed!

8/20/13 UPDATE!!!

Not only is the Novi Stars brand NOT discontinued just yet, but MGA is actually in the process of bringing them to more international markets! They’re hoping to achieve a similar success as the Moxie Girlz, which according to MGA sell “really well internationally and just okay in the US.” Let’s hope the Novis really blast off overseas! 🙂

UPDATE #2!!!

Our great friend Maurice has made a petition to keep the Novi Stars alive! Even though we now know that the brand isn’t discontinued, a petition could be great positive reinforcement in addition to a spike in sales! Sign it here 🙂

Hey Bratz Fans!

Tonight we’re taking a small break from our usual up-to-the-minute Bratz & Bratzillaz reports to spread the word about one of MGA’s totally cosmic new lines – the Novi Stars! Novi Stars is a line based around a group of quirky teen aliens and their adventures on Earth (Think Bratz goes ET!). Our own Alex received two of the adorable martians, Mae Tallick the robot, and Una Verse the glittery glamour girl, the other day and has done a review of them on YouTube! Check it out 😀

Adrianne also picked up the other two dolls, and you can see them in her video here:

These girls are out of this world and make an awesome addition to the MGA family. They’re all in stores now, so keep an eye out and do some alien hunting! And then let us know what you think on our Novi Stars thread in the forum!
