Hey Bratz Fans!

Just over a week ago, we unveiled some amazing Bratz designs by Youngsin Kwon from that mysterious era in 2009 when the girlz’ fate was still in legal limbo. Seeing some of those sketches and prototypes gave us all an awesome look at what almost was, as well as a behind-the-scenes-peek at some of the released dolls in their earliest forms! Being as nosy curious as we are, we just had to try and reach out to the designer herself, and to our delight, she got back to us! Since her time with the Bratz, Youngsin has totally kept herself busy as a successful designer at huge places like A&F, Disney Korea, Sanrio, and is currently designing for Korea’s largest toy company, Young Toys! And despite her understandably packed schedule, Miss Kwon has agreed to let us interview her, and we want you to help us!

Keep in mind how totally monumental this is! Before now, we’d probably never learn anything more about what MGA had planned for the Bratz in fall 2009, and certainly not into 2010, but now we’ve got direct access to the woman who designed it all! This is also a great opportunity to learn more about what it takes to become a fashion designer, as well as the process of designing for Bratz, and dolls in general! Aren’t you psyched?! 😀

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!

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!

Check out these witchy playsets! The grand Piano plays music and vibrats, and the bed and vanity can transform and “walk” – We aren’t too sure what that means LOL! But totally wicked nonetheless

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 ❤

Hey Bratz Fans!

Today MGA has given us another big surprise! The Bratz.com homepage has been updated with a NEW photo showing off the core four girlz in a few of their new looks for spring 2013! Check out the full-size image below 🙂

We are absolutely in love with what we’re seeing! Yasmin stands out the most to us, with her funky 70’s-inspired look and NEW facial screening! Cloe is the same doll the Bratz showed yesterday. Sasha actually appears to be one of the mysterious nude spring Bratz we found on taobao not too long ago! Jade is definitely from the Kool Katz line. Over all, we’re majorly impressed and beyond excited to see the new dolls in stores!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Tonight we have a major EXCLUSIVE that you cannot find anywhere else! Remember MGA’s Lady Gaga doll line that was scheduled to come out this summer? Well we have PHOTOS of the prototypes for you all to see here! Check ’em out below

Lady Gaga doll prototypes and sketch! Click to view full-size!

WOW! We can’t even type a good article right now because we’re so stunned! Look at those crazy details in her outfits! We totally hope to see these on shelves next year!

UPDATE! Hey everyone! Sorry for such a cryptic post – we were really too stoked to type more! Just some more info for you all; The dolls in Gaga’s iconic “Judas” and silver outfits were to sing “Judas” and “Poker Face”. Since Gaga’s team had MGA remove the voice chips though, there will be no singing dolls and they should be released as standard fashion dolls, along with the dolls you see in the green and piano dresses. Other products in the line included/will include (the state of the line is still somewhat of a mystery) a Head Gamez giftset featuring Lady Gaga with a few interchangeable heads and fashions, sold-separately head packs, fashion packs, and accessory packs! So are all of you as Gaga for Gaga as we are? Let us know on the forum, tweet us @BratzBoulevard, and “Like” Bratz Boulevard on facebook here!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Today we have yet another Bratzillaz update! Thanks to this German shopping website, we now have a photo of the Cafe Zap Playset!

The Bratzillaz Cafe Zap playset!

While we can’t deny that it isn’t exactly what we were expecting, it still looks positively wicked! The bar-stools look fantastic, and we can already spot the transforming bookshelf/fireplace! The coffeemaker (With real thunder sound effects!) is also a fun detail, with its little gauge/clock and knob on the side. We can’t wait to see this set in stores, and in the Bratzillaz webisodes!

Hey Bratz Fans!

In response to the huge demand for Bratzillaz.com to launch, MGA has put up a video page on the website while they finish up the final site! On the website, you won’t find much for now, but there’s an exciting Bratzillaz product demo which features all five dolls, their pets, and (drumroll!) their earliest prototypes! It’s definitely an interesting thing to see, so check it out at Bratzillaz.com!
