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 🙂

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!

Bratz Totally Polished! L-R: "Fianna", Cloe, Yasmin, and "Jade"(LOL!) Click to view full-size.

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 🙂

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 ❤

MGA Fall 2013 Preview!

April 20, 2013

Hey Bratz, Bratzillaz, Moxie Girlz, and Lalaloopsy fans!

Wondering what the extended intro is about? Well we’ve got a MAJOR scoop covering all of the aforementioned brands today! We’ve got photos of the prototypes for new Bratz, new Bratzillaz, new Moxie Girlz, and even new Lalaloopsy all hitting stores for fall!! Check them all out below!

*Please keep in mind the photos featured are early prototypes and everything you see has likely been changed a LOT in development!*

Of course, we’ll be starting this post off with our fave girlz – the Bratz! Unfortunately, the ONLY photo is for Twisty Styles, but hey – that’s even more than we were hoping for LOL!

WOW!! How awesome are they?! Each girl comes with awesome “dread-like” extensions to rock! We also LOVE the mixed up hair colors here, though we’re not sure if that’s a feature they’ll have in production, as the artwork is consideably different!

And next is the girlz’ wicked, witchy, magical cousins – the Bratzillaz! Luckily, we’ve got pix of Bratzillaz Back 2 Magic, and the new Witchy Glam Princess line as well!

First up is Back 2 Magic, the “2nd edition” Bratzillaz line! We’re assuming the top photo is for that line, as Sashabella, Meygana, Jade, and the two new witches are seen. We aren’t sure who it is in the bottom pic, but they are wicked glam for sure! We are SO loving the pets, too!

And now here is the line we’ve all been waiting for – Witchy Glam Princess!! We aren’t sure who is who, and quite frankly, we don’t care! All three of these witches are just absolutely enchanting!! Honestly, we can’t even choose a favorite between the three! Their fashions are totally regal and way over-the-top, and the bird cage accessories are wicked adorbs!

And next is a doll line we honestly didn’t think would have a fall 2013 line, but they do, and they’re looking cute as ever! Here are the two new fall Moxie Girlz lines!

This line, just called “Party Favors”, features the girlz in funky bright colors and fashions that double as party favor accessorie for you, too! We are sooo loving those hair colors!!

And this line is called “Snap ‘N’ Style”. Once again the girlz are rocking the awesome bright colors in their hair and their fashions! These girlz look to include flowers and things that snap onto their dresses – way cute!!

And next up is the Sew Magical, Sew Cute… Lalaloopsy! In all honesty, we haven’t followed this line too closely, so excuse us if we make some mistakes, but we know how strong of a fanbase the Lalas have and know that you would just love to see some of what’s comin’ up!

Well, that’s all for now! We are SO stoked for the fall releases to come out now more than ever!!! What do you think of this fun sneak peek? Let us know on facebook, or on twitter!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Fellow fansite Bratz Heaven has once again scored a major scoop with more new amazon listings, this time for two new Bratzillaz segments coming this fall “Bratzillaz Back to Magic” and “Bratzillaz Wicked Glam Princess“!

As the title suggests, Back to Magic is a back-to-school segment for fall, featuring Meygana, Jade, Sashabella, and two new exchange students from India and China: Illiana Honesty and Victoria Antique. We’re predicting this range will be similar in concept to the first edition Bratzillaz line, in that it will include the dolls wearing signature fashions (And new fall outfits for Meygana, Jade, and Sashabella of course) as well as a stand, character spell card, and possibly a pet. Victoria Antique sounds amazing from her name alone, and seeing how the Zillaz represent different nationalities will be really fun to see! Check out links to the listings below.

Sashabella
Jade
Meygana
Illiana
Victoria

Wicked Glam Princess totally sounds like a working title to us, meaning it is likely to change, but the line sounds absolutely enchanting nonetheless! The listings’ detailed description with an actual plot make this segment sound like a biggie for fall, possibly backed by a webisode or even a DVD/TV special of some sort? We seriously hope so! Here’s the story behind the collection:

“While exploring the academy, the Bratzillaz™ discover hidden pictures of Forgotten Princesses (wt) they read about in history class. They recognized them by their birdcage hats, witchmark make-up, and their elegant dresses that look like they are from another time. The Bratzillaz™ use their magic to free the princesses from their picture frames and befriend them.”

That alone gives us super-high hopes for these witches. Birdcage hats and elegant dresses? Sounds like Glam is about to get a little Couture! Could it get any better? Of course! The three princesses in the line are Vinessa Speakers, who we’re guessing has some powers over music, Siernna Calmer, who we think might have some control over emotions, and Angelic Sounds, who we really have no clue what to expect of! Her last name sounds like she could also be a musician… The features for this line are bird-cage hats, glow-in-the-dark bird hair accessories, and probably the aforementioned elegant dresses, too! You can check out the listings for these wicked royals below.

Angelic Sounds
Siernna Calmer
Vinessa Speakers

We are beyond wicked excited for all of these new releases! How about all of you? Let us know on our facebook page, or tweet us!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Alex here, and if you haven’t already heard, the first wave of Bratzillaz Switch-A-Witch is in stores now in both the United States and Canada! Of course I had to run out and grab them as soon as I heard the news. Check ’em out below!

The Bratzillaz Switch-A-Witch wave 1 double pack next to Mattel's Monster High Create-A-Monser starter pack. Click to view full-size!

First, I had to take a photo in the store of the BZ pack next to a Monster High Create-A-Monster set, and even to my surprise, they’re even more different from each other than previously though! The main similarity was the packaging, but even that’s hardly similar. Bratzillaz’ box has a more “warm”, redder color scheme, and features frames on the background, as well as a fun and curvy border on the front, keeping it in with the branding for the rest of the Bratzillaz products. Monster High went for a bright lime green background, with black rectangles corresponding to the placement of each piece. And speaking of placement, even that’s pretty different. Sure the arms are all together in both sets, but where else would they place them…? If you want to get technical, you could easily say Monster High AND Bratzillaz are copying the original “Build-A-Doll”, Betty Spaghetty! Packaging aside, the obvious difference is that the Bratzillaz double pack includes far more pieces, including not only what’s necessary to build both dolls, but to fully dress them head-to-toe as well. While the Create-A-Monster sets includes two basic dresses, one pair of shoes, one real-hair wig, and one molded-hair wig, Bratzillaz keep their witches covered in two tops, two skirts, two pairs of shoes, two saran wigs, two pairs of earrings, two bracelets, two hats, and two capes – one of which doubles as a belt! With the Bratzillaz set being $24.99, and the Monster High set at $19.99, it means you can technically get two fully-articulated, saran-haired, glass-eyes BZ dolls for $12.50 (cheaper than the basic “Core” assortment out now, which lacks articulation, saran hair, and glass eyes!) or one fully-dressed-but-not-accessorized, fully-articulated Monster High ghoul with either kenekalon or molded hair, and one without shoes for about $10 each, which is cheaper than the $14.99+ they’d force you to pay as stand-alone dolls, but still at least double what they’re worth based on quality! Just some facts for consumers to consider, now let’s get wicked! 😉

Sorry for the terrible photo, I was rushing to get them open LOL! Click to view full-size!

Here’s both sets from the first wave in their boxes! It’s a bit hard to tell, but each torso piece is actually a different mold! The leg molds are actually different on each witch too, surprisingly. Don’t worry, all three can share fashions with each other as well as with the other Bratzillaz too. Personally, I love that MGA is giving us this unexpected variety! Also, I already mentioned that the 2-pack is $24.99, but the single pack is $14.99 🙂

Here’s everything that both sets come with! The double pack includes: 2 heads, 2 torsos (with the waist joint!), 4 upper legs, 4 lower legs, 4 upper arms, 4 lower arms, 4 hands, 2 saran wigs, 2 pairs of shoes, 2 pairs of earrings, 2 bracelets, 2 hats, 2 capes (one of which doubles as a belt, as I mentioned above!), 2 tops, 2 bottoms, one brush, and instructions. Note that the background of the box makes an AMAZING backdrop for photos too!

The single pack includes: 1 head, 1 torso (with the waist joint!), 2 upper legs, 2 lower legs, 2 upper arms, 2 lower arms, 2 hands, 1 saran wig, 1 pair of shoes, 1 pair of earrings, 1 hat, 1 cape, 1 top, 1 bottom, 1 brush, and instructions.

And now that you’ve seen everything they come with, we can put them together and brew up three complete wicked glam witches!

The three combos I've made so far! Keep in mind that I used pieces from both sets, so you'd need to buy both in order to create these specifically. Click to view full-size!

Aren’t they amazing? MGA really did an outstanding job on this line. The black and white witch is so bold and edgy, and definitely not something you’d typically see on a stroll down the playline doll aisle! The witch in pink and green is another real cutie. I love her winged eye makeup, and of course that ‘fro is to die for! The single pack face is just amazing as well. When MGA does glass eyes, they do them RIGHT! She’s sporting the Bratzillaz’ world-famous glitter eyes in silver!

Here's a close-up of the black and white combination. The white lashes and RED lips are truly magical! Click to view full-size, or check her out at flickr.com/alexbabs

Hey Bratz Fans & BZs!

Alex here with an exclusive first look at the latest addition to Bratzillaz Academy, sparkly sea witch Fianna Fins! A friend of ours at MGA was sweet enough to send me a sampling of this spring’s lines, and Miss Fins was included!

Image

Fianna Fins in her box! Click to view full-size

In the box, she looked just as I had expected. While I was over-the-moon to be the first person to own her, I wasn’t surprised by her appearance or anything in-box (After all, we exclusively unveiled her a while back here at BratzBoulevard.com!). I was happy to finally “get to know her” via her bio on the box though!

Image

How cute is Ripple? Despite Fianna not being in stores yet, this little guy has actually been spotted on shelves already, so keep an eye out! Click to view full-size, or check out these pix and more on my flickr!

It’s not mentioned on the back of her box, but one of Fianna’s weather-changing spells is

“Moon of night,
Wind of play,
Bratzacadabra!
Send the clouds away!”

She can be heard saying it in the Bratzillaz webisode; “Midnight Beach“.

After the obligatory boxed photo session, you can believe I practically ripped this witch out of her box! I already thought she looked simply stunning, but once she was deboxed, I had fallen full head-over-snap-on-heels in love! Just check out those eyes!

Image

Fianna’s eyes sparkle like sand in the sunlight! Click to view full-size.

As you can see, she is just breath-takingly beautiful! I love the glittery makeup all over, and again, THOSE EYES! Oh my gosh, why they would sell her with her glasses on I’ll never understand, but at least it was a wicked sweet surprise for me as I opened her up! Her glasses are a new mold, obviously fin-inspired, and her hair is 100% silky saran that goes past her knees! The front is lightly crimped, and most of the back is just straight.

Of course, I totally love her outfit too!

On top is a cute strapless top in a shimmery blue scaley print, with a coral starfish in the center. On the bottom is a long “mermaid” skirt made from the same material with the same starfish on the side of her waist. Under that is a second part to her skirt, that actually comes off and doubles as her cape! Note that her panties are actually painted in a shimmery blue too so you can remove her skirt altogether and she’ll be ready for some beach fun in a cute blue bikini! There are really quite a few fashion combinations you can make with just this one doll. I didn’t photograph all of them, but you can see them in my video review of her (and the new 2nd assortment Sashabella with saran hair!) below

So what are your thoughts on Fianna Fins? Personally, I’m loving her, and totally recommend her the the most out of the entire Midnight Beach line (which says a lot, because the line as a whole is pretty amazing!). She’s actually my current fave Bratzillaz doll! Feel free to sound off on my video review’s comments section, as well as on our official facebook page, and on twitter @BratzBoulevard!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Today we’ve got a new taobao find to share for all the BZs! It’s a NEW Bratzillaz Switch-a-Witch set! Very similar to the Head Gamez and Design Your Own Bratz lines of the past, Bratzillaz Switch-a-Witch allows you to create your own Bratzillaz girl with wigs, body parts, and tons of fashion accessories! Check ’em out below…

Image

Bratzillaz Switch-a-Witch! Click to view full-size

As you can see on the box, each set comes with over 45 pieces to mix and match! We’re loving that the dolls still have the BZ signature glass eyes, and that MGA still went all out in giving these custom cuties all the funky fashion details we’d expect from the ‘Zillaz! The checker-print girl really reminds us a lot of some of the background characters in the hit Bratzillaz web series.

Image

Each set includes over 45 magical pieces to create the witch of your dreams! Click to view full-size.

We must come clean and admit that these are packaged pretty similarly to Monster High’s Create-a-Monster starter packs, but we prefer these by far! glass eyes, more articulation, and more pieces overall? We are so there! MGA always did know how to make the perfect “DIY dollies” 😉

SO what are your thoughts? Let us know on facebook at facebook.com/BratzBoulevard, or tweet us @BratzBoulevard!
