More Sirenix (Harmonix?) Images

Credit goes to various people, but foremost rickydshow for taking these images.

I believe the following is a launch calender.

From what I understand, there are going to be not one, but TWO transformations: sirenix and harmonix! It seems that the first half of season five will air this fall and go on until spring where we will see the girls achieve the harmonix transformation. Serenix will appear in the latter half...but, the "ability to use their powers under water?" Um, can't they do that anyways? The water on Andros did not really stop them in season three.

There will also be a Christmas special for this year. Hmm...I'm guessing that it'll just be a winter holiday special because Magix doesn't exactly celebrate Christmas or have winter for that matter.

Hey, look, it's the old mermaid transformations.

Sirenix Images from Bologna Children's Book Fair

Rickydshow recently visited Bologna Children's Book Fair and took some pictures of the new Sirenix transformation. Check it out! (Pictures are from Una di noi.)

What do you think of the new transformations so far? I think the designs are cool, but I'm waiting to see how they implement the water/mermaid theme into their magic before I make any real judgements.

Are you prepared to let Roxy go?

I'm not going to argue about whether or not Roxy is a real member of the Winx Club in this post. That topic has been beaten to death across the internet.

Instead, I wonder: are fans ready to accept that Roxy may not appear in season five? EDIT: As pointed out, (I genuinely forgot that) Roxy will appear in season five. Thanks, guys!

The point wasn't to argue whether she will appear or not in season five, but to wonder how viewers would feel that an important character who drove much of season four be demoted to a unimportant role in the next season.

Clearly, she has not been featured in any of the recent merchandise or previews for season five, which makes me think that she won't appear at all (or that it just proves that she was truly a temporary important character). On the other hand, she appears frequently in the comics just like Aisha and has her own article section, making me think that she has some sort of permanence in the series. (For those of you who don't know, Aisha and Roxy sometimes don't make appearances in certain comics, leaving just the original five.)

Personally, I don't mind that Roxy does not appear in season five. I would be a little disappointed, but I could cope with the idea. As for other fans, I think they might either go crazy. Are you prepared to let Roxy go?

2012 Mirtillo Clothing Line

Mirtillo is the clothing company that creates the Winx Club clothing line in Italy. Their 2012 catalogue features clothing with images for new Winx outfits, namely the the "Fairy Concert" and "Urban Safari" sets as well as the usual Sophix and Believix sets. (Don't worry. I'll spare you the awkwardness of looking at child models wearing the sample clothing.)

The clothes below feature images of the new "Fairy Concert" outfits.

According to Mirtillo, the company that produces the Winx Club clothing line, this series is either "Fairy Concert" or "Winx Super Star."

Season 4 Nickelodeon Ad

If only "Coming soon" was replaced with an actual date. I suppose that it'll either be aired this spring (next month?) or during the summer in preparation for a simultaneous global debut of season five.

Confusion over a possible S5 Roxy outfit

So back in December on Una di noi, there was a little bit of confusion about piece of fan art claiming to be based on a real outfit. Here's your answer:

The image on the left was printed in issue 13 of the French Winx Club magazine. Whether this is an outfit for season five or not, I have no answer. It's not unknown that the issues would print outfits that have nothing to do with the series or that are not part of a set, notably the Italian edition. Look below to see preppy Aisha and a boyish Flora from the Italian magazines.
These outfits are only for the monthly articles "Fashion & Style" which does write up on what sort of clothes needed for a certain style.
Now, as for the Roxy outfit above, I don't know if it falls in the same category the "Fashion & Style" articles or if it's for season five, but I can say for sure that it's not fan art.

(If you're going to use these images, at least give some credit where its due.)


Hey! Listen! What are you doing here?
