Hey Bratz Fans!

****6/23/14 UPDATE!****
We have received confirmation from MGA that our theory was in fact correct! The “Bratz Classicz” title is NOT just a one-off release, but will actually be an umbrella title used to cover all existing Bratz media – The movies & TV episodes! Hooray!

As we’re sure you all remember, a few months back, the Bratz took to their official facebook to ask the fans what they would like to be the title of an upcoming Bratz TV series box set! Of course, everybody was jumping for joy – this would mark the first ever box set of the Bratz TV series to ever be released in the US, and was a definite major step in the right direction for the Bratz’ marketing! Now, a little bit later, a new Bratz DVD box set has popped up at Walmart stores very unexpectedly, using the winning title: “Bratz Classicz”! However it is not at all what anyone was expecting… Check out the cover below, found and shared on instagram by the amazing littlemissnoname!

Hm… Unless this is the first in a series of DVDs under the title, we’re honestly disappointed! The Bratz have already released box sets of their movies – and ones that made more sense at that (Bratz Go To Paris is included, but not Rock Angelz…?). And that aside, the packaging looks a little random and not nearly as iconic or retrospective as many fans were hoping based on the title. The stars and gradient backgrounds are borrowed from 2010’s branding, while the “art” is from the Passion 4 Fashion Diamondz DVD cover, and the logo and impact font are all from last year! We’re seriously hoping this is just one release in an upcoming series of “Bratz Classicz”, perhaps as a one-off release just for Walmart (Note that it’s an exclusive, and the surprisingly low price for a box set). You can trust that we’ll be asking our peeps at MGA for the full story! So…

Hey Bratz Fans!

Today, Amazon has added photos to even more of its listings for this fall’s MGA dolls! We now have photos for Bratz Costume Bash, Bratz Basic Fall 2013, and Bratzillaz Back to Magic! Check ’em all out below.

First, here is the new Bratz Basic Yasmin, Cloe, and Jade! We added Sasha to the photo as well, though we already saw – and addressed – her the other day. How amazing is this collection?! The core four is dressed to impress in super trendy fashions that also have quite a bit of edge! Yasmin’s outfit is perhaps the most on-trend in our opinions. Just look at that floral denim!! And we’re very happy to see that shoe mold again. Cloe is a major favorite of ours as well. Her look is VERY urban and edgy! The high-waisted leather shorts are HOT, as is the netted top with purple leather bustier! We aren’t incredibly thrilled about her molded purple legs, but it really isn’t an issue, and just adds to the sassy, skin-tight look of her outfit! We will say we would have loved her to include the fingerless gloves and chain belt shown in her art, but with the basic boxes being half-exposed, it makes sense for MGA to omit pieces like that, which would be incredibly easy to steal. Jade is another stunner with her edgy “goth schoolgirl”-esque look! We are so stoked to see another Jade in pigtails, and the red streaks are just awesome – we were getting bored with all the pink! Her makeup is equally rad, with her deep red lips! The outfit Kool Kat is rockin’ is too cool as well! We are loving the use of plaid, as well as the kitty face on her top – definitely a throwback to Jade’s early wardrobe!! Like Cloe, Jade also has molded leggings, but it’s really not a big deal since this line isn’t articulated anyways. The new shoe mold on Jade is amazing! We are really happy to see so many new shoes this fall, and the fact that MGA is getting back to painting the molded details make them all even better!!

And now here is this year’s “Halloween” line – Bratz Costume Bash! This line is so cool because it takes the quirkiness of the old 2006-2008 Costume Party collections, and adds a touch of last year’s Chic Mystique over-the-top attitude! It appears there’s no Sasha in the line at the moment. Yasmin is going to the bash dressed a cute cowgirl with an adorable little pink and white hat (Which is a new mold!), a bandana scarf, a tiny badge (Love it!!), and some classic Bratz Wild Wild West boots! We’d also like to point out that all three dolls come with purses. Sadly, they aren’t fabric, but the fact that we’re getting this many accessories this fall is totally something to celebrate! Cloe is probably the most OTT, as a 70’s hippie chick! We’ll admit, this look is more of a typical costume store-style hippie than a legitimate one, but we suppose that was the point of the line! A Cloe dressed in trendy boho chic clothes wouldn’t make much sense for a Costume Bash 😉 Our absolute favorite thing about this Cloe would be her shoes. No, you aren’t seeing things, MGA is seriously bringing back the fan-favorite Bratz Princess shoes for this line! We also love her long, super-curly hair and funky purple streaks! Jade would have to be our all-time favorite of the line, hands down. We don’t quite understand why she’s a gingerbread girl for Halloween – but Jade’s always been known for her quirky cool style! This doll is just SO cool and unique! From the intricately-styled white and red hair (peep the awesome “cookie” accessory!) to her (molded) stripey peppermint leggings, she is just so well put together! The little bowtie was a really great touch in our opinions! Also, note the new-new brushes. MGA updated them with the current Bratz logo!

And last, but most definitely not least, are Bratzillaz Back to Magic Victoria Antique, Sashabella Paws, and Meygana Broomstix! It appears the dolls we saw last time were very late prototypes, as these are a little different, and in our opinions, even better! We’re assuming Jade J’Adore and Illiana Honesty are shipped in a later assortment, as these three keep appearing together. First is Victoria Antique, who we are still totally loving! She hasn’t changed much from the last photo we saw, though now we can get a view of her witchmark (A snake! And all this time, we thought she was dragon-inspired) and her pet in the box (A wicked cute little turtle-esque creature). The box also reveals that her fave class is “The Science of Brew & Renew”, as her power is taking something old and making it new again! Next is Sashabella, who we are honestly so much more impressed with now! We’re so happy to see that she’s finally got some completely new makeup, with that fun bright palette on her eyes, and slightly more purple lips! The outfit hasn’t changed much, which is fine by us. We are beyond ecstatic to see that the dolls include fabric purses just like the Toy Fair prototypes we exclusively revealed! Meygana also got her glasses back, and traded in her completely braided hair for just a few braids in the front. Her outfit isn’t too different either, though the cape is now argile and doesn’t have the embroidered pattern on it. Worth noting is the new text on the box: “Bratzillaz House of Witchez”. We have no clue what this could be, though we are working on getting an answer if we can! It is interesting that “Glam Gets Wicked” is nowhere in sight, and the Bratzillaz name itself is considerably smaller than the new phrase. One guess we have is that it’s the name of a possible TV special or DVD? We already know that the Witchy Princess segment will have a detailed plot totally worthy of some form of media, so we don’t see why the witchez’ new casual looks couln’t be included in that if it were to happen 😉

UPDATE! One of our amazing friends at MGA has let us know that the “House of Witchez” tagline is NOT the title of anything upcoming, but rather a new way to let consumers know what the brand is about and that the ‘Zillaz are WITCHEZ. This is an awesome response to the ignorant haters, if we do say so ourselves!

So, what are your thoughts on these new fall segments? Let us know on facebook and twitter!

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!

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!

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!

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!

Again, just a quickie update on the new Bratz: Fashion Boutique videogame! GameStop’s website has added a pre-order listing for the game here 🙂 As you can see, GameStop has a SRP of $24.99 and a release date of October 24th, rather than $29.99 and October 30th, as Amazon has listed. Do notice that GameStop’s listing is for Nintendo DS though, rather than 3DS like Amazon’s, so it is possible that the two versions will see separate releases and pricing. Also worth noting is the cover art on the site! It looks really plain right now, which leads us to think that it may not be the final art, but we’ll find out soon enough!

The current cover art for Bratz: Fashion Boutique. Subject to change 🙂

The listing also has a newer, more detailed description of the game than the press release:

“The favorite fashion divas are back in the all-new Bratz: Fashion Boutique video game. Join the Bratz gals that have a passion for fashion, Yasmin, Cloe, Jade, and Sasha, on a mission to save Stylesville’s local mall before it closes! Help run the hottest fashion boutiques to earn money and stop this fashion faux-pas. Start fabulous trends, customize outfits, and sell your personal clothing line to new customers to earn money and help save the mall!

  • Accessory Essentials: With hundreds of clothes and accessories, players can craft endless collections in workshop mini-games. Cut and sew different fabrics, buttons, and colorful decorations to create unique, couture outfits.
  • Cool Catwalk: Hit the run-way and organize fashion shows to start the hottest trends and show off your best collections.
  • Beautiful Boutiques: Customize and decorate fashion boutiques, each offering a hip-new style unique to each Bratz doll. With gorgeous designs and creative layouts, attract new customers to your store and help save the Bratz Fashion Mall!
  • Fabulous Makeovers: Makeover your customers into stylish divas! If they love their style, your fame will rise and you will bring in more customers.”

While the repeated misspelling of “Stilesville” does concern us, we can look past that given all of these amazing play features! From the looks of it, almost everything in the game will be customizable, from the fashions, to the boutiques, to even the Bratz themselves! We can’t wait to get our hands on a copy!
