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!

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! 😉

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

Those EYES! I went for a bit of a 'tween' look for her, since her body type is the least matured. Maybe she got her scholarship to the Academy early? Click to view full-size, or check her out at flickr.com/alexbabs

Here's Miss 'Fro working it! If I were to give her a magical power, I'd probably give her the ability to control emotions! Since she's a bit clown-like, I think she should make people laugh! Click to view full-size or check her out at flickr.com/alexbabs

Hey Bratz Fans!

Today we’ve got a spooky find for fans of the Bratzillaz – a NEW Witchy Makeover Yasmina Clairvoya set! Check out the photos below.

You can make Glam Get Wicked with the Witchy Makeover styling torsos! Here's Yasmina Clairvoya. Click (twice!) to view full-size.

Looks to us like these are made entirely out of the Bratz Funky Fashion Makeover styling torso molds, which were introduced with Bratz Rock Angelz in 2005. It’s very cool to see them with the Bratzillaz’ face though, they almost give us some “Pretty ‘N’ Punk” screening vibes, don’t you think? It appears that each set includes glow-in-the-dark nail polish, as well as several character-specific styling accessories that you can share with your fave wicked witch! Very cool!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Tonight we’ve got a photo of the NEW Bratz Spring 2013 Bahama Beach Cloe doll, boxed! Granted the photo is a bit small, but we can still tell she’s super-stylin’! Check her out below…

Looks to us like she might have a new face, though it is hard to tell for sure. We’re loving the swimsuit in deep blue, and her blue streak is so Cloe! Looks like her beach bag has some lip gloss (?) For You as well. We can’t wait to see the other girlz!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Tonight’s update is on the sleepwear line we previously posted about. In the past, we’ve been referring to it as “Satin Sleepover”, but as it turns out, the line might actually be the third edition of Sweet Dreamz; Pajama Party! We’ve checked the Russian shopping website where the photos were spotted, and according to rough translation, the line is called “Sweet Dreams” and each girl will include a bag that transforms into a sleeping bag! And to re-cap what was previously known – this is set to be one of the (USD)$14.99 ranges for fall. It is unknown right now whether or not Sasha will be making an appearance at the slumber party, but we wouldn’t doubt it 😉 Let us know what you all think in the forum!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Thanks to our friend Chris, AKA DudeWithDolls (Check out his flickr here!), we have a major scoop on this absolutely amazing new Toys R Us Exclusive Bratz “Fashion Stylistz” 4-pack! The pack features the core four in some amazingly detailed fashions, with pieces like fabric purses, hats, jackets, and jewelry! Check out Chris’s photo of the set at his Toys R Us store below!

According to Chris, the set was $39.99, which is pretty decent considering that just one of the dolls included would probably retail for about $19.99 alone given all of the impeccable detailing – these girls have real metal studs in their fashions, chain belts, hemmed edges, fabric bags and hats, plenty of accessories – really everything we’d expect from a Bratz prototype…in 2006! One thing that we’re especially curious about though, is the name! Fashion Stylistz was a line in 2007, with Yasmin, Cloe, and Leah taking on different tasks of a typical fashion stylist. Will there be a new line for this fall under the same name? We’ll be getting to the bottom of this soon, so keep it locked! And in the meantime, let’s discuss! Head over the forum to gush over this amazing exclusive!

Hey Bratz Fans!

By now, we’re sure everyone’s read the listings for Bratz Crystalicious on sites like Target.com, Very.co.uk, Walmart.com, etc. and has come across details like a real-working hairdryer, and glitter hairgel coming with the dolls. We’ll be the first to admit, we thought all of that was just a mistake, and that perhaps the websites were confusing the dolls with the Salon and Spa playset, which does include a real working hairdryer. Besides, we’ve got photos of the dolls in their boxes! MGA wouldn’t put out two “classes” of the same line, would they? Yes they would, and they have! Thanks to a recent listing with photos, we can now confirm that there is a deluxe version of the Bratz Crystalicious line that will include a real-working hairdryer and glitter hair gel! Check out Jade below…

As you all can see, the only differences are the boxes and of course, the added hairdryer and glitter gel. The dolls themselves remain unchanged 🙂
