Dolly Report: Monster High Freaky Fusion

By now, you’ve probably seen some of the newest Monster High line to hit store shelves, Freaky Fusion.  There are a lot of dolls in this line, which features four new hybrid characters, four fused characters, four characters who are ‘playing’ fused and finally, three Walmart exclusives.  By far, the most interesting of the characters in this line are the four new characters, Bonita Femur (Skeleton/Moth), Avea Trotter (Centaur/Harpy), Sirena Van Boo (Mermaid/Ghost) and male doll Neighthan Rot (Unicorn/Zombie).

Those characters by themselves would have made a fine line, but Mattel took it a step further by fusing eight of our favorite characters together to form four unique Monster High Students.  The prettiest of them, in my opinion, is the fusion between Draculaura and Robecca, who form Dracubecca.  Her look is adorable.  Mattel kept Robecca’s riveted skin, gave it Draculaura’s pink coloring, gave her a head of dark hair and a fun steampunk outfit.

Another standout fusion is Cleo and Torelei, forming Cleolei.  Just the idea of these two being forced together like this is awesome.  The standout feature on Cleolei has to be her face paint.  The gold eye enhancements look so good on the tabby skin.

Venus, one of my personal favorites, merges with Clawdeen in the this line to form Clawvenus.  Clawvenus is, well, interesting, to say the least.  She’s definitely a doll you’ll either love or hate. The mixture of Clawdeen and Venus’ traditional hairstyles is pretty rad, but I’m not sure Venus’ coloring was the best choice on this doll.

Lagoonafire, a fusion of Lagoona and Jinafire, falls in line with Clawvenus, for me.  I’m not sure what I think of her, actually!  On one hand, I do think she’s a pretty cool doll.  On the other hand, she could easily come off as very strange looking.  Jinafire’s eyes are very distinctive, even on a Jinafire, which makes them stand out even more on a doll with Lagoona’s coloring.  The effect is different and startling, but strangely interesting!

These four basic dolls are ‘playing’ like they’re fused, meaning they aren’t true mixtures of two characters, but one character who is inspired to dress like another. Ghoulia is decked out in a Draculara-esc look. Her dress and headband are adorable.  Frankie‘s look is inspired by Clawdeen.  Slowly, but surely, I’m warming up to this Frankie.  It is nice seeing a Frankie with volume to her hair.

Operetta is my favorite of these four dolls.  She’s adorable in her Frankie inspired look! I love seeing Operetta with straight hair and Frankie’s outfit looks so cute on her!  Last, but not least, is Scarah wearing a Toralei inspired look.  I think Scarah, in general, is a cool doll.  This is a fun look for her.

Exclusive to Walmart are three basic ‘Save Frankie’ dolls: Jackson, Clawdeen and Draculaura. I have yet to see these in person, but the Draculaura looks like she could be a winner.  Even Clawdeen looks pretty neat.  I will need to see her in person to make a real assessment, but I like the ponytail and the face paint.  And Jackson, well, he’s Jackson.  I still prefer Holt.

Mattel created a neat three story Catacomb playset to go along with the Freaky Fusion line.  I have a few of the smaller Monster High playsets and they do add a nice backdrop to photoshoots.

As expected with a line this large, these Freaky Fusion dolls tie in with an all new movie release. Here’s the synopsis. “The Monster High Freaky Fusion ghouls go deep into the catacombs of Monster High to help Frankie look for clues about her past and learn more about her family scaritage. There, they inadvertently set off a time machine that takes them back to the year 1814 where they meet Sparky, a misguided, teen scientist obsessed with the creation of life. Sparky follows Frankie back to modern day Monster High, causing a lab accident in which eight ghouls fuse into four new monsters!”
