I had some luck yesterday! Apparently I just need to take Daniel shopping with me. First was Walmart and I was swearing and hulk-smashing the shelves, when I somehow noticed the box laying on top wasn't actually DotD Frankie and was actually wave 2/School's Out Frankie! I'm wondering if I've missed them before because Cleo and Clawdeen also both look similar to the old dolls since they're keeping the same color palette clothing-wise for every doll it seems, but since the box is different, I'm thinking not. Sucks that I missed out on Spectra, though. Nada at Target once again and they hadn't marked down the clearance anymore.

But later in the afternoon, I went to get my mail from mom and almost didn't, but decided to drag Daniel to Kmart. And to my shock, they had new stuff! It took our Kmart forEVER to get ANY MH stuff and I hadn't seen anybody posting that they'd found their stuff there, only Target/TRU/Walmart. But looks like they had just put out the Dawn of the Dance 2 dolls since there were 2 Ghoulias, 2 Lagoonas and 1 Deuce so I got my pick of the girls, plus they had the Day at the Maul fashion set! Woooo Hoooo! It was getting hard to resist TRU and Amazon, but I try to shop locally when I can (my taxes do go back into my paycheck essentially), plus to ensure against any wonk-eyes. They also had a Moxie Teenz Bijou on clearance which I'm hoping is still there when I go back at lunch. And maaaaaybe new MH stuff to put out? *fingers crossed* But even not, I got enough to tide me over for awhile. Poor Daniel, I told him about the spider girl and cat girl 3 times over the last 2 days since no one else would listen. *^_^

OH!! And I got my ship notice for SDCC Ghoulia!! I was so afraid I might miss out even though I made sure the one I bought said 100% guaranteed to arrive. Squee! I love her fashion pack with the tiny action figure. Going to be hard to decide to debox her or leave her pristine though...

Hopefully! I did debox them yesterday which is a good first step! ;) Glad I could get the special off my DVR too since I had forgotten those came with DVDs. Which stuffs do you have so far? Did your Ghoulia ship too?

My Ghoulia is shipping Monday, I do believe. So I'm doing the happy dance, albeit a bit slower than others. ;)

Of the summer wave o' pain for MH, I have:
DT: Cleo, Ghouls, Draculaura, Frankie
W2: Spectra, Clawdeen complete w/ wonk (curse you, TRU!), Frankie, Cleo
DotD: Lagoona
And Classroom Lagoona is on the way. :D

Oh, and I snagged the Day @the Maul fashion from Amazon. Because I'm totally getting the most out of my Prime freebie trial. (Come back in stock, Hydration Station!)

YAY!!! I love good dolly luck! When I find a skipper at the thrift store... BLISS. For WEEKS. (it's happened about 5 times in 10 years, but whatevah)

I know!! My poor guy friends that it seems are with me when I find them. I spazz out by flailing all over them and then just camp out on the floor to compare and scour the rest of the store for hidden gems.

Thrift finds are even better though! I love that "good deal high". I still can't believe the American Girl I got at our Goodwill, even if she is a bit messed up. They don't seem to have much at all these days, though except endless clothes. :(

Are they vintage ones you find?

*adds KMart to DotD list*

I've been checking there on and off since I heard the fashion pack was there, but both of mine suck ass.

I need a BREAK from buying MH though. Why in the world did they dump all this on us at ONCE? It's too much!

Our Kmart does too, which is why I hadn't even been checking. It always smells like a sewer and the girl toys aisle's are minimal at best. I had just been looking at the wrestling stuff since ours is apparently white trash heaven, lol.

It's insane the stuff that's out now. I was grateful that person made the picture checklist, but then realized just how much stuff to be on the lookout for!

I thought there would be more of a delay on the GB set, Clawdeen bed and classroom sets, since it seems we'd barely seen the previews. I was a little stunned when I took just the three dolls and pack up and it was almost $75. They sure add up quick, so that's def influencing my decision to just wait it out instead of ordering online. I thought about taking the item #s to Target like that girl said, but I think I'll just bide time for the CC to roll over.

Oh yeah, I keep forgetting the new plushes, too! Geez!
