So Mattel has totally been reusing names in their Monster High doll line. It sort of entertains me, as it is just another point in favor of why I am liking these dolls so much. Not only do they, stylistically harken back to the 80s with their crazy color choices and bold styles (I’m seriously considering doing some photops with my Jem dolls) but they have the same names (albiet not of any favorites thus far).
We have Spectra. (A MH doll I seriously am wanting—I haven’t even seen her in person). I’ve been hunting this doll for a while, but I only just remembered today that Barbie had a space friend named Spectra back in the 80s. She is a pretty crazy looking doll, but wouldn’t be too out of place with the MH girls, with her metallic body. She actually also had a whole set of friends. I’ve only ever seen them in person once—they were part of a display of Barbie and space travel at the Smithsonian’s Air and Space Museum about a decade ago.
Holy shit! I had that doll! I totally forgot about her until you just posted her.
