Found original G3 ponies MIB in UK discount shop!
« on: January 19, 2012, 08:27:45 PM »
UK peeps might want to have a look to see if a "Family Bargains" shop has opened up near them.  I looked online and it says it's owned by the 99p store. 
There's a new one in Reading (near Morrisons) and I spotted toys on the list of stuff they had so thought it was worth a look to see if they had G4... They didn't but I did find a surprise!  the original G3 ponies Rainbow Dash, Wysteria and Sweetberry with the video tapes  :P   They were a little dusty but ok otherwise.  They were £3.99 but I had to buy the 4 they had just to rescue the poor ponies.  I'll be putting them up for sale soon  :lookround:
 
So if you've spotted this store check it out!  They do seem to have a few around - check google  :cool:

How strange! That is quite a way back by now! 2003 or 2004 maybe? Back in the days of G3, 'Home Bargains' had some G3s at cheap prices. I wonder if they're connected at all?

That's an awesome find! Maybe there are some in nooks and crannies here in the US.

Oh wow, one opened near us actually but it's a bit of a trek.
I managed in 99pence store to find an illustrated Hogfather screeplay, it had an ASDA sticker on it so I guess thats where they get some of their stock from. (I also found a concept art book for the Narnia films from there too)

I found Twilight & Spike's Balloon in USA packaging in Boyes here, which is the local rubbishy cheap shop with an added fabric shop above it. Other than that I've had no luck. I'll keep an eye out for anything like that opening up!

Wow - I would have bought them, too. My mom actually found some of the Target Holiday g3s MIP and gave them to me for Christmas - I decided to keep them MIP since I opened all of my other G3s when I got them :silly:

I'd like to hunt down a MIB G3 or two, just so I can unbox a G3.
