G4 Minty: What's The Word???
« on: January 19, 2012, 10:14:07 PM »
Sorry I'm sure you guys don't know but I'm just frustrated because I wanted her.  Was she even official, like was she a custom someone had made or something photoshopped?

I figured maybe we'd see her for Christmas because she's known for winter and Christmas.  I know winter isn't over but I figured she would have shown up by now.  Maybe she's like the breast cancer awareness pony where she only showed up on ebay for a milisecond.

I'm pretty sure it is a really pony, not photo-shopped, they were selling on eBay for $100+ a while back, the same seller also had G4 Scootaloo for similar prices at the time.  I figured it was a seller who was able to get them straight from the factory or something as they weren't packaged.  Scootaloo has been available in stores recently, so I am still hopeful that Minty will show up soon too!  She was very cute!

There were a very small number available on Taobao that someone snapped up and then they turned up on ebay....she looked pretty legit....

I am sure So Silver mentioned in his thread on the old Arena about when he visited Hasbro Italy that there was a possibility she would be a bonus pony - that seems reasonable confirmation that she will hit shelves eventually....

But at the end of the day until we can walk into Walmart or Tesco or Toys R Us or whatever your local toy/super shop is or until she shows her pretty little face on Hasbro.com or until an "in box" version shows up on Taobao, we will all be guessing
Thank you Matcha for my gorgeous Baby Fifi avi :hug:

I remember it being mentioned that she may be a prototype pony that was never 'officially' released. I was really wishing she would come out during  Christmas time.
Maybe we will get lucky and have her this year! I would grab her right away.

I'm pretty sure she was 'real' too. I've seen a couple pics from people who got her off taobao.
I'm hoping so much that she is officially released sometime. I love her colors so much!

I think that Hasbro will most likely release her at some point. She's not a risky pony to release you know? If they look at past productions of her she has always been extremely popular and I think they are safe in assuming she will be popular again. I bet because of their awareness of her popularity she will be included as an extra in a more expensive set as an incentive to buy it. Hopefully I'm wrong though and she comes out as a single :P and soon! We never thought we'd get the blind bags here in the US, and that's happening now.

It would be nice if they would mass produce her. :)

MIIIIIIIINTTTTTTTTYYYYYYYYY! OH PLEASE OH PLEASE OH PLEASE let her be real I will spazz and raid every store until I find her if she is real.

Also it'd be awesome if she showed up in the show. I keep looking for Lily Blossom and THINKING that I see her, only to find out it's the wrong pony.

;3; Let it be sooo~

The word, friend, is GIVEITTOMENOW. I need at least three. At the very least. :happy:   (The reason for one of them can be found to the left of this post.

I'm kind of hoping she and Sweetie Blue will round out the line with confirmed Diamond Rose and Cherry Pie. Wave 4 had six non-mane characters and those two aren't part of the main suitcase line. Would they just do two?

Someone replied to me on Flickr and said that Hasbro told them she was a holiday pony that had come and gone. C'mon now. There is no way she could have been sold and nobody saw her. I figure that person they talked to just wasn't up on their pony info.

I don't think she was a holiday pony either because even in other countries (other than US) I'm sure someone would have spotted her.  People were looking for her around Christmas in all their local stores like crazy.

To be honest, I'm not crazy about buying a set but if Minty was a bonus pony I'd probably buy it.

OH I hope we get Minty soon!  She is so lovely (and since she's been released as a blind bag, I would hope that means that Hasbro knows she's popular!)
Nothing says Christmas like a pair of socks!
