So I've always loved Trolls. I was so disappointed when the last revival of the figures didn't last very long. I had high hopes when I heard that we were going to get new Trolls thanks to DreamWorks.

Then I saw them.

Why, exactly, is their skin colored bizarre colors as well as their hair? Why can't DreamWorks make Trolls that, you know, actually look more like the dolls that have been around for fifty years?

And they made it so they have exclusive product rights everywhere in the world except Scandinavia. Not that the original company tends to make the bizarre hair colors that really made them popular in the U.S. They seem to stick more to logical colors like black and white.

I saw a trailer for the film some time back. As usual, DreamWorks had a lot of scatological humor in it. I hardly ever watch DreamWorks films because of that element. But I'd probably still bite the bullet and see the film if the Trolls actually looked like they're supposed to. I guess I could still be won over, but I'd always like the classic styles the best.

Looks like if I want more classic Trolls, I still have to either turn to buying MIB Trolls online from the last wave and paying S&H costs or else picking up the loose Trolls I've seen at the antique mall. Or both.

I was a little disappointed with the troll design myself, actually. They're weird and off the way the Littlest Pet Shop revival was weird and off.

As usual, DreamWorks had a lot of scatological humor in it. I hardly ever watch DreamWorks films because of that element.

I honestly can't remember if I ever recommended Megamind to you or just kept telling myself that I should, but just in case, you should watch Megamind. It's sweet and adorable and funny and has cute friendshippy things and a killer soundtrack.

Indeed. Although not as bad as the Littlest Pet Shop. Ugggh, those horrifyingly big heads....

I can't remember either, but thanks! That does sound promising.

I had trolls as a kid and thought they were pretty cool. I had no idea there was a movie of them coming up. The colorful skin might be a multi-racial nod since most trolls were Caucasian in my day.

*hugs* and good luck!

Yeah, I idly wondered if that could be the reason, since that's why most people figure the Equestria Girls have bizarrely colored skin. Or rather, they have odd colors so that people won't get tied up in knots not liking them making the human versions of the Ponies one particular real race over another. Heh.

**hugs back.** Thanks!

I suspect that it the case with them. We are so PC these days.
