I'm in nz and up until last week I'd never actually seen the Royal Gem Carriage set without the Starswirl bonus pony, but a couple of days ago new stock must have arrived (the Carousel Boutique and Schoolhouse sets are popping up) and it looks like they're just the regular set.

Any idea if this means they've stopped making her all together, or are we just not getting them anymore?

I'm pretty sure that Star Swirl, Rainbow Flash and Daisy Dreams were supposed to be just like a limited edition run, meaning once they're all sold, that's it. Which is sad because there's so many people in countries that didn't get them (like in the US) that would love them, but there don't seem to be enough to go around.

Darn, those bonus ponies are simply gorgeous, it's a shame we probably won't get them around here.

It's hard enough to find the new waves at the local stores anyway XD

Last time I went to look for sets at my local HEB (in Mexico) they only had 2 left (which I took with me, of course!) and I don't have many hopes of them stocking again. I've got one extra set with Star Swirl with me Smile so if anybody's interested PM me! ^^

My local Warehouse still has heaps of Starswirl Rarity carriages. I can't find Daisy Dreams anymore. I'm happy to buy them for anyone, I just need to work out shipping costs first. Fawnlily, let me know if you still need a Starswirl.

Btw has anyone noticed that Raritys ring & ribbons are different colours? Theres a rarity with pink ring, purple ring and blue ring

I might have to message some of you, because I would really like Star Swirl and Rainbow Flash, Daisy Dreams isn't as big of a deal for me though.

I still I wish I could find them- or anything besides the usual ponies at the store though. Hopefully closer to the holidays they'll get more exclusives at Target Smile

someone e-mailed Hasbro about them, and the response was that no more are being made and all that is available is out.

I guess ponies aren't as popular where I am because there's still quite a few of all three in my local store, if anyone wants some I'll be happy to get them for you.

Question: is shipping from Austrailia to the US ridiculous? Because I'm tempted to have some of you just snag some from the store for me.

That depends on your definition of expesive and how soon you want it, cheapest is about $8US which will take ages, a bit faster for about $11US and then the prices start to get a little insane. These prices are weight based and not including the price of packaging so the actually prices may be higher and MIB wil probably be higher still.
