I would rank them as near Bratz dolls levels of revolting.

Just a reminder that those and EqG are ultimately competing against what is now one of the most financially successful new franchises of all time:



If you guessed what this is supposed to be and gave up: she's seriously supposed to be the (non-existent) daughter of Creature from the Black Lagoon. You know, the one that killed several people and was riddled with bullet holes at the end?

Hate when companies pull stuff like this. For many reasons.

Yikes, so is that a mix of The Creature and Julie Adams?  The implications of how that happened are not pleasant...

Wow, I'd never really thought of it in that way...  :gouge:

There's also a fair share of glammed up werewolves, vampires, robots, and even mummies. No classic movie monster is safe. Pretty much is both "we don't have to pay that much if anything to use these concepts" and "the target audience can't enjoy them unless we make their offspring dress like they stumbled through a Japanese street fashion supply warehouse."

The fish in the bowl reminds me of Minion from Megamind.

oh for the love of



The daughter of Eros, Greek god of love.

I'll take ruining and sanitizing classic movie monsters to a point. But this? THIS?  :grr:

Also it's pretty funny considering they have a MALE medusa. Guess they don't know where that word comes from, huh? It's even worse considering his name is seriously Deuce Gorgon.

Gorgons are FEMALE creatures.  :clap:

One of my problems with the ones I posted (aside from the freakish faces) was that they seem like the bodies and heads don't quite match up.  It's like they took the head from a Littlest Petshop figure and plopped on a doll's body and just repainted it.

"Freakish" is what sells, apparently. Why bother making decent-looking toys if kids will literally buy monsters dressed up with "mature" clothes?

Actually DVRed and watched Equestria Girls today.  Yeah, it's pretty much a special episode of MLP.  Not my favorite, but it was still good writing.  They made the transition make sense, and found a way for it to be temporary, not horribly change the main series at all, but still have a possible little detour to human-y characters now and then.  The larger takeaway of the plot is Twilight Sparkle having to adjust to life changes but realize that she still can be herself.  She goes through it when having to pass for human, and realizes it will be the same when she returns to Equestria to ease into her life as a princess.  The musical numbers aren't as catchy as you might be used to, but that's really the worst thing I can say about it.  By the end of it, it didn't seem as much about selling human looking toys (though I know that's where it came from) and more a nod to MLP cosplayers.  That really is what the characters were looking like at the end, right down to the ears on headbands.

And there's still two months until the S4 premiere.

Celestia micro comic was pretty good.  Liked all the Sailor Moon and Harry Potter ponies in the background (and pony Gordon Ramsay).

And Celestia apparently took out Sailor Moon herself at some point and got the moon wand.

I've only read some of the micro comics, but that Celestia one looked interesting so I bought it, and yes it was a good one.

Oh, and the Mr. Kotter pony made me laugh.  I'm assuming that's what the pony with the perm, mustache, and wearing a tie was meant to be.
