    Re: Jab's Builds!

    I would have thought that the daughter of the Loch Ness Monster would be the daughter of two Loch Ness Monsters and just be one herself.

    Hah - Neat! Sounds like a crazy time- doing the lower budget theater & club scene in NYC of all places.

    -Scarah debuted as a background nothing character- just a light green chick with empty, all-white eyes. Because of that distinct look, she didn't get much in the way of an outfit- she's BY FAR the plainest character in the entire series. Her big gimmick is Telepathy, giving her all of one story in the webisodes (though it's pretty effective, working even when she DOESN'T want it to). Oddly, she has FOUR dolls despite being a minor character- but two come in multi-packs, one of which being an exclusive. The
    story of how the gang got her to hook up with Invisi Billy is pretty funny.

    -Invisi Billy is another background character, but he's given such a neat look that pretty much every webisode involving him is given a horde of "OMG BILLY'S SO CUTE!!" comments on YouTube. He was originally a "Joke Doll" from April Fool's Day (an empty package with the quote "How do YOU know I'm not in the box?"), but eventually got his own. One webisode features him crushing on, then dating, Scarah Screams, and another has him & Twyla allow Catty Noir to join their "Disappearing Club". He had to give up his pet dog, because people always thought it was a stray when he took it for walks, and currently owns a box that may or may not have a cat in it.

    -Ya know... this series has some INCREDIBLE names. Very marketable and catchy. They really play off the names of famous monsters, and are immediately memorable and recognizable. And then there's "Venus McFlytrap". Like, seriously? That was the best Plant Pun they could come up with? However, she DOES look quite cool. Venus was part of the "Second Wave" of characters released, and ended up being given the "Environmentalist" tag, since she's a plant and all. She's also got a bit of Poison Ivy in her- actually mentally-controlling people into recycling (oh god can you imagine if actual hippies had that power?), but generally just sits around and preaches. Think of her as a hippie with actual fashion sense... No. Too outlandish, even for this show.

    -Venus McFlytrap can use minor-league Mind Control, control the movements of plants, and make them grow. Despite being pretty minor (her biggest role was as one of the "Fusion" girls in Freaky Fusion, which is largely just a more-popular character gaining her powers in an uncontrolled manner), she has TEN dolls, largely owing to a pretty unique look (though all the teeth make her look a bit... odd).

    Total: Abilities: 28 / Skills: 24--12 / Advantages: 0 / Powers: 60 / Defenses: 5 (105)

    -Deuce Gorgon was the first male character introduced to the Monster High universe (he's in the Glen Hansen pictures done as part of his commissions... though he draws him in a style that makes him look 100% like a tough-guy homosexual like the background characters in Chelsea Boys. Like there is no way that pouty character was straight... which is probably why they made him look a little more rough around the edges in the final design), and seemed like he was going to be a really major deal. I mean, he's in the THEME SONG! And yet... the character kind of seems to have vanished from importance- you eventually see much more of Heath, Manny and Clawd than you ever do of Mr. Theme Song.

    -Part of the issue is the rather... non-specific nature of his character. He is clearly designed to look like a good-looking bad boy- he's got sunglasses, punky-looking hair (that are SNAKES), a sleeveless leather jacket, and more... but isn't really a bad boy AT ALL. He doesn't DO ANYTHING BAD. He just kind of has the look, and is a generic semi-friendly background character otherwise. Most of the other male characters are stupid (pretty much in keeping with what high school boys are really like), while Deuce is more laid-back and normal... making him a bit boring. Then they paired him up with CLEO, who is naturally the Alpha Female and a conceited one to boot, which makes them seem rather odd as a couple. She's all commanding and ordering people around, and Deuce just kind of shrugs. They even do some "he doesn't know how to express his true feelings to Cleo" stuff, which again is a bit lost because of the bad-ass design. They have struggles when Cleo's father wants them apart, and when Operetta makes a move on him, but he's just so passive doesn't let things get to him. I just don't think he FITS- it's like they wanted the bad boy IMAGE without actually doing anything to make him seem dangerous or rebellious- even in a FUNNY way. And this is probably why he barely appears in ANY of the feature-length Monster High movies (and only has six dolls, about a quarter that of the lesser members of the Main Group)- there are numerous more-dynamic characters out there.

    -Deuce is a popular guy and an athlete- the kind of character typical of a male Love Interest in a girl-themed series. He's ALSO packing the ability to freeze things into stone, basically a Perception-Ranged effect that's a Free Action (he just has to LOOK at people), but with a Cyclops-style Complication. He needs his sunglasses to avoid it- without them, he'll just flash-freeze everyone around him.

    -Viperine Gorgon follows up on a pretty cool idea- a female Gorgon. Since Deuce was already a character, Viperine is his cousin, the daughter of Stheno (Medusa had two Gorgon sisters, remember- we've yet to see any children of Euryale, the third). She appears in the most-random manner, though- just a background character in Frights, Camera, Action!, a makeup artist on a Hauntlywood set, who meets and befriends the girls, shows off her "Toyetic" visuals, and introduces them to her client, Elissabat. She's a true minor character, and is pretty much just a Bystander with a Gorgon's powers. But that '70s look with the PINK snakes for hair is a pretty cool style. She's got one doll out now, and two more this year.

    Re: Jab's Builds!

    A couple more of the shorts (released together in one DVD):

    WHY DO GHOULS FALL IN LOVE?:
    * A 46-minute movie about a vampire named Valentine returning to Draculaura's life- his scheme is to steal her heart, along with all the other heartbroken women's he's jilted over the years! He uses Mind Control to make her split up with poor Clawd (his clumsy attempts at giving her practical gift for her "Sweet Sixteen-Hundred" party, and subsequent scolding by Cleo & Clawdeen is pretty funny). The best bits involve Cupid & Abbey's disagreements over love advice (Cupid gives flowery talk of romance; Abbey is cynical and all-business), and when Toralei (who's been playing everyone along and causing trouble just for the hell of it) goes nuts with Cupid's Bow and causes half the student body to fall in love with the other half- one guy makes out with the ice sculpture, but HAHAHAHAH- Manny Taur and SloMo dancing slowly, looking longingly into each other's eyes is worth the price of admission.

    FRIDAY NIGHT FRIGHTS:
    -The boys are all injured by the evil, all-cheating Gargoyle School in a Roller Derby-like game, and the ghouls take their places, drawing controversy, since of course GIRLS CAN'T PLAY THAT GAME DURR-HURR-HURR. This age-old, really generic concept is thankfully handled a BIT differently than it has been in every other form of media for the past hundred years, as the female cast ISN'T just amazingly-better immediately, and actually need Clawd- a MAN-'s help, once he gets over his prejudice and decides to take their side. AND the ghouls actually get assistance from various OTHER characters, with Operetta, Rochelle Goyle (a member of the Gargoyle team who rejects them and their sexist ways... apparently they never realized she was a chick all along), and Robecca Steam (rebuilt over the course of the special- she'd apparently been blown up over a century earlier by the SAME SCHOOL).

    This one's actually a bit funny- highlights include Clawd trying to give this big, tough "Coach Speech" to the girls, but Draculaura keeps giggling and flirting ("SORRY, SWEETIE!")- he gives a tough lecture about "There's no giggling in this!", but then winks at her as he walks by- cute. Also, the game they're playing is BAD-ASS- essentially a Roller Derby race but with DEATH-TRAPS, many of which should TOTALLY be fatal! Seriously, some of the obstacles include FLAME BLASTS, SAW BLADES, and a KRAKEN.

    In a weird subplot, Ghoulia keeps finding pieces of debris on the track, and ends up rebuilding Robecca. Considering the track is basically immaculate-looking, why the hell did nobody else notice these pieces lying around? Robecca is of course the greatest Derby player ever, but can't join the team (which now includes Operetta, who's actually a super-athlete), because she's still missing a piece.

    Soon, the Gargoyles' Rochelle Goyle (who was disguising herself as a boy) quits their sexist team and joins Monster High, which embraces their femininity and starts wearing HIGH-HEELED ROLLER SKATES, which is so outlandish that it's brilliant. Which is a weird combination of storytelling tropes (they TEASED the "Elite New Member" trick with Robecca, and now three minutes later they've a new Elite New Member anyways?). I love how cheating is beyond the pale, but Abbey's ICE POWERS are totally fine. And Operetta's Sonic Voice. Never mind that the teams are 6-7 members strong, but only allow three on the field at once (the MH girls trade out; other teams don't). Weird: Because of the focus on gender and sports, they use the term "girls" instead of "ghouls", probably because it'd be too awkward if they said it over and over again, instead of just for a pun.

    Total: Abilities: 18 / Skills: 6--3 / Advantages: 2 / Powers: 24 / Defenses: 4 (51)

    -A Dragon from Fanghai, Jinafire represents one of the few international monsters in the franchise. And wow, WHAT a design! The cool scales, the freaky Chinese-style outfit, the hair, the hair-stick-thingies (what are those called again?), the eyes- now THAT is how you make a humanoid dragon! She seems pretty much like a Generic Friendly Girl in everything I've seen, however, which is too bad- a character with that kind of design could really be a big deal. There's some stuff about her "working too hard", which is like that B.S. flaw they gave the black Disney Princess and why nobody ever cares about HER, either.

    -Jinafire breathes Fire, despite that being more of a European Dragon thing- she seems noticeably more-powerful than Heath Burns is, however.

    Responsibility (Protective)- As a Gargoyle, Rochelle is compelled to protect things- this is not always appreciated, as she can go over the top.
    Relationship (Garrott du Roque)- The two are still close, but live in different countries now that she's transferred.

    Total: Abilities: 28 / Skills: 16--8 / Advantages: 1 / Powers: 5 / Defenses: 7 (49)

    -Rochelle Goyle, a Gargoyle, became a pretty popular character, despite what I'd consider a pretty plain look for this series (all the grey on her skin and outfit). A French girl from Granite City High (in Scaris), she was on GCH's Roller Derby team under a mask (as females were not permitted to play), but quit their team in a huff when they made fun of Monster High's all-ghoul team, and joined the Main Group as an elite player! As a supporting player in Fright On! she proved popular, and ends up being part of the "travelling cast" in Scaris: City of Frights and Haunted- in the former, she was one of the major characters, being an actual Scarisian. She's also had eight dolls- which is quite a lot for someone outside of the Main Cast.

    -Rochelle is one of the more-athletic and capable ghouls in the cast, packing some impressive physicality and durability.

    C.A. Cupid

    Complications:
    Responsibility (Love Warrior)- Cupid loves those who love others, and focuses on helping others overcome their problems.
    Relationship (Dexter Charming)- Cupid has a desperate, stupid crush on the nerdy Dexter Charming, fawning over him like a lunatic. Alas, he only has eyes for Raven Queen- she wants him to be happy, and tries to give him advice on how to woo Raven.
    Responsibility (Terrible Aim)- Cupid actually can't hit worth balls with her Arrows.

    Total: Abilities: 6 / Skills: 6--3 / Advantages: 0 / Powers: 22 / Defenses: 3 (34)

    -C.A. Cupid is an odd fit, being the Daughter (possibly adopted) of a God rather than the biological daughter of a well-known monster. She ends up being kind of a gag character in Monster High, in that she's terrible with her bow, but works as a Radio Host for a "love advice" program, giving flowery advice. She'd only appeared in two dolls, and had only a minor role in some of the CGI movies, so it didn't seem like she was going anywhere.

    -However, in a very odd bit, she was TRANSFERRED from Monster High, and is now a recurring character on its spin-off sister show Ever After High, where she got a much better redesign (the "cupid's bow" lips really just look weird to me), more in keeping with that show's more feminine, flowery style. In EAH, she has a HILARIOUS role, in that she fawns over Dexter Charming (Son of Prince Charming) like a deranged, lovesick fool (her computer includes "selfies" of her with Dexter in the background, surrounded by drawn-on hearts; she tends to just stare at him while giggling like a loon). However, there's also a hint of tragedy, as Dexter only has eyes for Raven Queen (Daughter of the Evil Queen), and Cupid feels honor-bound to help her beloved by teaching him to get with Raven. YouTube arguments over "Dexven" and "Dexpid" are actually hilariously-intense. I love you, internet.

    -Cupid has a pretty-powerful Ranged Weapon, a rarity for this series... but can't actually hit worth balls according to the reading stuff (though it seemed to have a pretty powerful laser sight in Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love?).

    Re: Jab's Builds!

    oh yes. my niece is ga-ga over EAH stuff, which des have the interesting hook of characters NOT wanting to fulfill their destinies of succeeding their parent's roles in the stories, and thus the social order is being thrown out of whack as a result while faculty scrambles to justify sticking to the old way

    Re: Jab's Builds!

    Yeah, Ever After High has some great character bits on it, and is a bit funnier than Monster High thanks to some of the characters being just TOTALLY nuts (Madeline Hatter, Cupid). Though most EAH designs are a little "same-y" (the dolls are almost 100% identical, especially in the face- something MH doesn't have as much of an issue with, since half the cast are non-human colours or have "monster" bits). Better Flash Animation, though- the hair animation is CRAZY advanced compared to what you'll even see on TV shows these days.

    The whole Ever After High concept is a bit weird when you read into things and it says that the Fairy Tale characters have been doing this for GENERATIONS- like Ashlynn Ella's mother isn't even the ORIGINAL Cinderella.
