What Scarecroodle Is Up To: The Growing Terror of Parallax

Toy companies can do some odd things when it comes to movie spoilers. In the case of Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, for instance, Kenner revealed the villain's secret identity when it left the figure unmasked in the packaging ...

Ever After High's Cerise Wolf confirmed for SDCC photo
Ever After High's Cerise Wolf confirmed for SDCC
by Natalie Kipper

For Ever After High fans awaiting more news after Tuesday's teaser image, the time for the full reveal has come. As predicted, the San Diego Comic-Con exclusive is none other than Cerise Wolf (a.k.a. Cerise Hood), the daughter of Red Riding Hood and the Big, Bad Wolf. She comes garbed in a blood red dress and wolf's pelt, honoring both sides of her lineage. Notice that fangs are visible on this doll, unlike previous versions.

To get your paws on this doll, you have several options, including one for those who can't make it the con. The first option is pre-ordering it for pick-up at SDCC during the Voucher sale at MattyCollector. The sale begins on June 23 at 8 a.m. Pacific for Club Eternia subscribers. For everyone else, the start is June 24 at 9 a.m., provided they haven't sold out of the allocated stock during Early Access. The second option is to simply brave the lines at SDCC and purchase it straight from Mattel's booth. Finally, starting on August 4 at the MattyCollector After Party Sale, everyone will have a chance to purchase a Cerise Wolf from their online store. Priority goes to Club Eternia subscribers, who will be able to order beginning August 4 at 8 a.m. Pacific. And if there are any dolls left, the flood gates will open to the public starting August 5 at 9 a.m. Pacific.

As of yet, we don't know the edition size nor the price of Cerise Wolf.

Is Mattel's next San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Cerise Wolf? photo
Is Mattel's next San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Cerise Wolf?
by Natalie Kipper

At this year's San Diego Comic-Con, Mattel is not only bringing Monster High exclusive dolls but an exclusive Ever After High doll as well. A teaser image of the Ever After High figure popped up on Instagram yesterday and fans have already decoded the character and made a solid guess on the outfit. The mention of the character's "big bad" shoes hints towards Cerise Wolf, daughter of Red Riding Hood, being the exclusive doll. More will certainly be revealed in the days leading up to SDCC. Keep your eyes on Tomopop for more updates as they come in.

Mattel's Manny Taur and Iris Clops look to be an SDCC power couple  photo
Mattel's Manny Taur and Iris Clops look to be an SDCC power couple
by Natalie Kipper

The badges have (hopefully) been purchased, the hotel rooms booked, now it's time to start talking about San Diego Comic-Con exclusives. Mattel revealed that one of their much-coveted con-exclusive toys will be a two-pack of dolls from their Monster High line, featuring the characters Manny Taur and Iris Clops. The announcement contained a small picture (which you can view in its entirety in the gallery) and a little summary for the pair:

Bull in china shop seeks gentle ghoul with the stars in her eye to help navigate the confusing maze of high school love.

I am not terribly fond of the way these two look as far as Monster High dolls go. I thought the previous years' exclusives (see 2013 here) were much better. But if these are your cup of tea, the pre-order starts on June 24 on MattyCollector.com, where you will later pick them up at SDCC. Alternatively, you can try your luck with the lines at the con. Or if you feel intensely lucky, you can wait to order it online on August 5. They will cost US$40.
