Headless Headmistress Bloodgood Doll From Monster High
On this page we are going to be taking a look at the new Headless Headmistress Bloodgood doll from Monster High. We will take a close look at the doll and then talk about the release date and where you can get this one from. If you are a fan of Monster High then Headless Headmistress Bloodgood is a character you will be familiar with, her doll has been one fans have been waiting a long time for.
Monster High first became popular back in 2010. The creators of these dolls are the toy company Mattel and they have worked really hard with this line of dolls. There is a long running cartoon that broadcasts from the official website and also lots of books, games and other merchandise based on the theme. Back when the show first came out there were just a few main characters. Since then Mattel have introduced lots of new ghouls to the school and kept the story moving briskly along. Along with all the new characters they have also kept churning out doll after doll and the latest one of these is based on the school Headmistress. So let’s take a look at her.
The New Doll
The New Headless Headmistress Bloodgood Doll
So first of all let’s tell you a little bit about the character herself. Bloodgood is in charge of the school as you would expect from her title Headmistress. She is a strict disciplinarian but the students seem to respect her and get on reasonably well with her. Her character is based on the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow. She has a removable head which she often takes off. Most characters of the ghouls at Monster High have a pet, Bloodgood has a horse named Nightmare. A large powerful animal that is quite imposing.
So what can we tell you about the doll. Well interestingly this doll was first previewed at Comic Con 2011. Fans were asked to vote which doll they would like to see made available and they had a choice of Bloodgood, Scarah Screams and Daughter of Arachne. Scarah Screams won the vote and was released as a limited edition in 2012. Mattel decided though that they would still release Headless Headmistress Bloodgood and her doll will be coming out sometime early 2013. Were are expecting the actual release date to be around July time but as you can see the doll is already starting to show up online and you can now buy it from a few different places.
The doll looks to be very nicely done. It is taller than most of the other dolls and we assume this is due to the fact that she is a full grown adult rather than a student at the school. Her head comes off as you would expect and you can pop this under her arm. She comes dressed in her familiar purple outfit which we often see her in when she appears in the shows. One of the best things is that Mattel have brought out a version of her with her horse Nightmare. The horse comes in blue as you would expect and it really does look like a nice feature of the new release. It will also be interesting to see if they bring out any other dolls based on members of staff as this is something we have not seen before.
Monster High Hoodude Voodoo
Other New Monster High Releases
Along with Headless Headmistress Bloodgood the people at Mattel have been busy working on lots of other dolls. Many of these were previewed at Comic Con in July and so now we have a really good idea of what to expect from Monster High. The most eagerly awaited release of recent times was of course Scarah Screams who won the vote a year earlier. She was brought out at comic con in a twin pack with Hoodude Voodoo. Both dolls are really nicely done and we really like the way Hoodude looks like a cross between a doll and a plushie. Just like in the show he looks like he has been stitched together in a hurry. These two dolls came out as limited editions so they are quite difficult to find.
Another new doll we will soon be seeing is Catrine DeMew. This is an interesting one due to the fact that Catrine is a completely new character that we have not seen in the shows. Rumours have it that she will make her debut in the feature film ‘Ghoul’s Rule’ which comes out in October. Her character is based on a French Werecat and she comes with a little bag with a picture of Paris on. She also has a tail and some pretty impressive looking purple hair. We are expecting her to be released sometime late 2012 or possibly early into 2013.
Along with brand new dolls there are also lots of classic characters that are getting a remake. One new theme is Monster High Super Heroes. In this new theme we will see some classic characters such as Clawdeen and Spectra wearing super hero outfits. The big forthcoming release is ‘Ghoul’s Alive’ which feature some very well known characters such as Frankie Stein, Clawdeen Wolf and Spectra Vondergeist. These new dolls will come with built in features that make them seem alive, so for instance Frankie will look as though sparks are coming from her chest, much like sometimes happens in the show.
Mattel have been very clever in keeping fans of Monster High busy with all the new episodes they bring out. The constant stream of new storylines and new characters has given them the ability to bring out so many new dolls. The great thing for Mattel is that these dolls seem to get ever more popular as time goes on. The new Headless Headmistress Bloodgood doll looks like being the latest in a series of very successful dolls. When this one is released we are sure then fans of the show will want to get their hands on it as a soon as possible.
