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 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.

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!

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!

Thanks to our friend Connor once again for sharing these with us, we’ve got the first boxed photos of Bratzillaz newbie, Fianna Fins!

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 😉

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!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Remember the teaser we posted earlier for the NEW Bratzillaz app for iPhone and iPad? Well you can get it now in the iTunes App Store! The app is from Tropisounds, makers of the recently-released Bratz Style Starz app, so you know it’s going to be totally wicked! Check out some screenshots below

Six sizzlin’ screenshots! Click to view full-size

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! Let us know what you think of the new app on our forum, tweet us @BratzBoulevard, or “Like” our NEW facebook page and let us know there!

Hey Bratz Fans!

After much anticipation, the premiere episode of the Bratzillaz web series is now up on YouTube! The first episode is a basic introduction to the five Bratzillaz, and how they became witches! The animation is fantastic, and there are lots of cute moments throughout (Like their magic transformations, or their Anna Wintour-esque headmaster!) Check it out here!

Also totally wicked is the behind-the-scenes video on-set at the Bratzillaz Music Video shoot! Peep the kiss scene between Sashabella and the skull dude 😉

Let us know what you think of the Bratzillaz’ magic introductions in the forum!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Today we’ve got a huge update, thanks to our friend Justin! He’s shared links to practically everything coming out on WalMart.com!

To start with our favorite, here are the new Bratz Boyz coming out for this fall! We absolutely love them! Cade coming back is a dream come true, and especially for Totally Tattoo’d like we had hoped! Cameron appears to be sporting his Funk ‘n Glow outfit from this spring, but that’s okay as that doll never came out anyways! Koby is dressed for winter, though we’re not too sure exactly which line he’s for. He certainly wouldn’t fit in alongside the Bratz Pink Winter Dream girls! Either way though, Koby looks awesome and we’re more than ready for his comeback!

And while we’re on the topic of Pink Winter Dream, MGA will be continuing their popular Big Bratz line with a WalMart exclusive Big Bratz Pink Winter Dream Cloe and Yasmin! Their listings have no pictures yet, but here’s the description:

“Join the Bratz in their fabulous Pink Winter World! The Big Bratz Pink Winter Dream Doll wears her own special shade of pink furry fashions, from light pastel to beautiful brights. Each doll comes with a fancy party dress and belt to go from snow to sensational!
Big Bratz Pink Winter Dream Doll:

  • Fabulous, fur-embellished fashions
  • Comes with a fancy party dress and belt to go from snow to sensational
  • Includes their own cocoa cup and collectible animal charm keychain
  • Dimensions: 5″L x 5″W x 24″H”

Sounds pretty dreamy! ^_^

Another product listing with no photo that we thought sounded pretty awesome is a new Bratz RC car and doll set!
“The Bratz Radio-Controlled Vehicle with Doll lets the Bratz cruise in style and listen to their favorite music in a remote controlled car. The Bratz Radio-Controlled Vehicle features a speaker with input for mp3 players and fits two Bratz dolls.
Bratz 27MHz Radio-Controlled Vehicle with Doll:

  • Remote control-operated
  • Speaker with input for mp3 player
  • Fits 2 Bratz dolls (1 Bratz doll included)
  • Requires 8 AA batteries (not included)
  • Dimensions: 7.5″L x 22.75″W x 7.5″H”
And a line with pictures is this year’s Bratz Holiday line! So far, it looks like Yasmin, Cloe, and Jade are the only girls in it, though there are rumors that a Sasha will be included as well. We’ll have to wait and see! Regardless, we totally love these dolls’ outfits! Yasmin is pretty in purple and gorgeous in gold as always 😉 Cloe’s definitely a stand-out for us though. Her hair and makeup actually remind us a bit of Christina Aguilera LOL! And her dress is very trendy with the faux-ostrich feather skirt and trim! Jade is stunning as well, and we definitely don’t get to see her in green very much anymore! Her dress is pretty cute with its Christmas Tree-inspired shape and coloring. We absolutely adore the netting on top!

WalMart also has listings for all of the Boutique, Totally Tattoo’d, Chic Mystique, Style Starz, and Crystalicious dolls and sets, as well as all but Cloe in Strut it!, but since we’ve shared all of those before, there’s no need for us to post them again 🙂
And on to Bratzillaz! Again, there are listings for things we’ve already reported on (Cafe Zap, Secret Message Pad, Dolls, Pets, and Fashion Packs) so we’ll be skipping those here 😉
First up are the Bratzillaz Accessory Packs! Their names are Charmed Life, Wicked Night Out, and Academy Style. We love how wintery Academy Style looks (Very Hogwarts lol!) and while Charmed Life isn’t quite as blinged-out as we were expecting, it still lives up to its name with such high-class accessories! Wicked Night Out is super sassy, just like we want in a “club”-themed set.

L-R: Charmed Life, Wicked Night Out, and Academy Style! Click to view full-size 🙂

Also listed is the Bratzillaz Crystal Ball playset! While we have reported on this product quite a bit in the past, we now have a photo of the set to share!

Another big thanks to our pal Justin for sharing these listings. We can’t wait to find all of this in stores!

Hey Bratz Fans!

MGA pulled a funny Friday the 13th prank on us all today at Bratzillaz.com! Turns out that countdown clock on the site wasn’t for the launch, it was for a fierce new Bratzillaz music video! While there was a bug with the countdown not being set for the right time, it was quickly fixed within an hour, and the video was up! Watch the Bratzillaz girls make magic in the nearly 3-minute video here! We absolutely love the song, even if it’s not the same one from the demo video. The choreography is out of this world too, and we love that the girls were all painted white to match the “selective coloring” of their artwork!
