My first sighting of 2015 Bratz are all Sashas.

I went to Walmart to pick up groceries, and thought to check.  So far, they only had cases of Sashas.  Unfortunately, I'm not sure how I feel about the new head mold, or the proportions of this eye print.  It's very big and flat in person, but at least they're colorful.  I guess it's fine for kids.  Shelf tags were not out yet, and I don't think any had sold.  They were smooshed in with the overflowing Monster High mob.

#Selfiesnaps is the most colorful one.  The novelty photo of her inside the box looks better than the actual doll.

The Hello My Name is Sasha doll's face seems almost identical to #Selfiesnaps, but with slightly different color choices.

Study Abroad Sasha at least got thicker eyebrows.  I'm not sure which I prefer.  This one has a 3mm hole its left eyebrow, oops.  The other copies of the doll were all intact.  I think the paint quality is slightly better overall than the final year of the old line.

Overall, it doesn't feel like this reboot took two years to plan.  I still want to see the others, they have at least one other eye print, and new colors and styling might create a completely different doll.  Even if I don't like any of them, I hope kids will.  The budget dolls always sold quickly in my area.

Bonus!  Boo York Catty Noir showed up, the paint is so thinned, the eyes are gray.  Boo!

Speaking of translucent eyes, they also got fresh stock of the Haunted dolls.  I think the concepts are pretty, but after seeing them in person, I don't want to own any of them.

"It doesn't feel like this reboot took two years to plan" about sums it up. I don't hate the new Bratz, but I'd expected to be a lot more excited at the reboot. Right now, MGA's Vi and Va line is appealing to me more (and that one hasn't reached buying enthusiasm with me yet), and I'm feeling downright warm toward Moxie Girlz.

I feel the same way, I'm more exited for the other MGA lines than the actual Bratz.
