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! πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ™‚

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 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…

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.

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” πŸ˜‰

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

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!

She is just breath-takingly beautiful! We are loving the glitter makeup she’s rockin’, and her artwork is too cool! We’re very curious about what her bikini looks like too, as her skirt is much fuller than the other Midnight Beach witches’. Hopefully she’ll be in stores very soon!

Hey Bratz Fans!

We must give a wicked HUUUGE thank you to our awesome friend (and most recent BBNTM guest judge) Justin, as he’s found the NEW Bratzillaz Midnight Beach dolls at his own Walmart in the state of New York, and was kind enough to take photos of them just for us! Check ’em out below

The five “cour witches” in the Bratzillaz gang on the shelves! Thanks to Justin for the exclusive pic (and fab watermark!) Click to view full-size

Above you can see five Yasmina, Cloetta, Sashabella, Jade, and Meygana from the line on the shelf at Walmart. New girl Fianna looks to be shipped separately, and may be from a different line all together! Keep in mind she’s got a pet and profile to present as well πŸ˜‰

Justin was also nice enough to take this wicked close-up of Sashabella (his fave!) for us as well. We adore all the cute detailing in her swimsuit! It’s very tribal, which rocks!

So how are you all feeling about this new line now that we’ve all gotten a better look at it? Let us know on facebook, twitter, or on the forum at BratzBoulevard.com!

Unlike the Bratz Style Starz app, which is practically several apps in one, the new Bratzillaz app’s primary focus is the camera. With this app, you can add wicked cool frames and accessories to your pics, and even make yourself into one of the Bratzillaz! It’s also much cheaper than the Style Starz app, at the insanely low price of just $0.99! Check it out in the app store here, then sound off!
