Hey Bratz Fans!

Alex here with the third installment in our “Up Close & Magical” series, where we review new Bratzillaz characters and products if either of us are the first to get them! Today, I’m wicked psyched to introduce Victoria Antique from the new Back to Magic line for fall!

Victoria is one of the two new foreigh exchange students enrolling in Bratzillaz Academy with this line, the other being Illiana Honesty, who comes from India. Victoria is Chinese, and as her last name suggests, she has the power to take something old and make it good as new! Her fave class is “The Science of Brew & Renew” and her pet is an adorable little dragon/turtle hybrid whose name is currently unknown.

Above is the back of her box, where you can see a small bio for her, plus our first look at Illiana Honesty on the bottom! We definitely can’t wait for her to come out! Victoria’s bio says “I Make Things New! Power: If you’ve got treasure that’s falling apart, Victoria Antique gives it a new start! What her friends love about her: That she sees the beauty under the dust and cobwebs”. We also get a peak at her witchmark, which is a snake. Hopefully, we’ll learn one of her spells soon! 🙂

And now onto the doll herself! How absolutely stunning is her face?! She’s super exotic looking, which I love. Her brows are really cool and point outwards, making her look a bit more dragon-esque. As is always the case with Bratzillaz, her eyes are just gorgeous! Admittedly, they aren’t as thrilling as Fianna Fins’ or the Switch-A-Witch single pack doll’s, but still really pretty nonetheless! They’re made to look like those of a dragon or a snake. Around her eyes are cool dragon scales done in a really nice jade green and gold combo! Her “regular” eye makeup is a very bold gold, too. Her lips really “POP” with a bright orange shade as well!

Her outfit’s pretty awesome, too. She’s rockin’ a “playsuit” with super short-shorts under a top with a long flowing sleeve on one arm, and a cape over the other. One side of the top  is a super-cute plaid pattern with little fire symbols all over it, adding to her dragon-inspired appeal! The other side is just a simple black satin. Over her stomach and chest underneath the top has a wicked snakeskin print – Very cool!! And wrapped around that is a small gold and black rope used as a belt. On her legs are some super-cool thigh high leg warmers, made of black fishnet material, and layered under a larger, sparkly gold fishnet material!

And over those cool leg warmers are her amazing snake heels! As you can see, they’re black with little cut-outs in the heels, and then wrapped around the doll’s legs are molded snakes! That is such a cool detail!!

Well, that’s the new Bratzillaz Back to Magic Victoria Antique doll! Expect to see her on store shelves soon. In the meantime, you can check out tons more pix of her and the other Back to Magic ‘Zillaz on my flickr, and watch my video review of her, Sashabella, and Meygana below!

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, Bratzillaz, Moxie Girlz, and Lalaloopsy fans!

*Please keep in mind the photos featured are early prototypes and everything you see has likely been changed a LOT in development!*

Of course, we’ll be starting this post off with our fave girlz – the Bratz! Unfortunately, the ONLY photo is for Twisty Styles, but hey – that’s even more than we were hoping for LOL!

WOW!! How awesome are they?! Each girl comes with awesome “dread-like” extensions to rock! We also LOVE the mixed up hair colors here, though we’re not sure if that’s a feature they’ll have in production, as the artwork is consideably different!

And next is the girlz’ wicked, witchy, magical cousins – the Bratzillaz! Luckily, we’ve got pix of Bratzillaz Back 2 Magic, and the new Witchy Glam Princess line as well!

First up is Back 2 Magic, the “2nd edition” Bratzillaz line! We’re assuming the top photo is for that line, as Sashabella, Meygana, Jade, and the two new witches are seen. We aren’t sure who it is in the bottom pic, but they are wicked glam for sure! We are SO loving the pets, too!

And now here is the line we’ve all been waiting for – Witchy Glam Princess!! We aren’t sure who is who, and quite frankly, we don’t care! All three of these witches are just absolutely enchanting!! Honestly, we can’t even choose a favorite between the three! Their fashions are totally regal and way over-the-top, and the bird cage accessories are wicked adorbs!

And next is a doll line we honestly didn’t think would have a fall 2013 line, but they do, and they’re looking cute as ever! Here are the two new fall Moxie Girlz lines!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Fellow fansite Bratz Heaven has once again scored a major scoop with more new amazon listings, this time for two new Bratzillaz segments coming this fall “Bratzillaz Back to Magic” and “Bratzillaz Wicked Glam Princess“!

As the title suggests, Back to Magic is a back-to-school segment for fall, featuring Meygana, Jade, Sashabella, and two new exchange students from India and China: Illiana Honesty and Victoria Antique. We’re predicting this range will be similar in concept to the first edition Bratzillaz line, in that it will include the dolls wearing signature fashions (And new fall outfits for Meygana, Jade, and Sashabella of course) as well as a stand, character spell card, and possibly a pet. Victoria Antique sounds amazing from her name alone, and seeing how the Zillaz represent different nationalities will be really fun to see! Check out links to the listings below.

Jade
Meygana
Illiana
Victoria

Wicked Glam Princess totally sounds like a working title to us, meaning it is likely to change, but the line sounds absolutely enchanting nonetheless! The listings’ detailed description with an actual plot make this segment sound like a biggie for fall, possibly backed by a webisode or even a DVD/TV special of some sort? We seriously hope so! Here’s the story behind the collection:

“While exploring the academy, the Bratzillaz™ discover hidden pictures of Forgotten Princesses (wt) they read about in history class. They recognized them by their birdcage hats, witchmark make-up, and their elegant dresses that look like they are from another time. The Bratzillaz™ use their magic to free the princesses from their picture frames and befriend them.”

That alone gives us super-high hopes for these witches. Birdcage hats and elegant dresses? Sounds like Glam is about to get a little Couture! Could it get any better? Of course! The three princesses in the line are Vinessa Speakers, who we’re guessing has some powers over music, Siernna Calmer, who we think might have some control over emotions, and Angelic Sounds, who we really have no clue what to expect of! Her last name sounds like she could also be a musician… The features for this line are bird-cage hats, glow-in-the-dark bird hair accessories, and probably the aforementioned elegant dresses, too! You can check out the listings for these wicked royals below.

Angelic Sounds
Siernna Calmer
Vinessa Speakers

We are beyond wicked excited for all of these new releases! How about all of you? Let us know on our facebook page, or tweet us!
