So... I'm surfing eBay on the "newly listed" filter... and I am seeing pictures of all these blind bag characters, the seller (junjie1007) is describing them as a Hasbro product and they are shipping from China. Does anyone know about these, are they actually real?? I am curious if this has been mentioned before or if it is on Taobao at all.

You can see them on eBay by typing:
" Hasbro my little pony friendship is magic blind bag figure 81" (This is Granny Smith)

EDIT: Here are the pictures the seller has posted ^-^

So what do you think? :S Real? Or prank? They look like actual plastic toys and not sculptures to me! (I am soo hoping Granny Smith and the Wonderbolt(s) are real)

Type any of these into ebay and tell me what you think. Are these real or really good customs? If this has already been posted I am sorry.

They look pretty legit. Who knows, maybe they'll do what they did with the brushable fan favorites: Make blind bags of them then make them into an exclusive set.


I also saw a Shining Armor one.

I saw those! I thought they were customs but they look factory made to me. No idea what to think for sure, though. They're from a seller in China so who knows!

May be it's not blind bags, but new molded set? Choice of characters and amount of details seem a bit strange to me.

I was thinking this, but the seller didn't put anything near them for size comparison.
The same seller also has normal-sized G3s listed as "My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic Bling Bag" so maybe they're larger than the seller makes us think?  :blink:

Those look like customs to me... Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure I can see brush strokes on Granny Smith and the Wonderbolt, and Shining Armor's horn looks sculpted.

Yep, someone posted about it ten seconds before you did.  The time stamp is exactly ten seconds apart.  Ahhhh Hasbro, your collector's market moves so fast, you couldn't pay people to keep up with it!  :D

Interesting. That Cadance looks different from the other (not yet released) blindbag Cadance...
So maybe they are a different type of plastic figures. Don't think they are customs.
They look nice though! And yay, Waterfire!

I agree with this!

I am leaning toward legit for a couple reasons:

1.) They look pretty dirty, and a lot of stuff we see coming from China is dirty
2.) I've seen some customizers with a steady hand sure but those eyes and cutie marks don't show a single trace of a paint brush swipe, they look like a stamped paint job to me!
3.) The smear on Cadance's forelock isn't something I think a customizer going to these lengths would let slip by without trying to fix

Wish we had a size ref in the images. They do look too detailed to me to be blind bags.

AND OMG Waterfire is a unicorn!?! YAY!

I sure hope those are real, I love that those are new sculpts! 
I would have thought customs for sure, but the sculpts are making me think they may be official...
Awesome find, can't wait til they're released if legit!!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought "Hmmm, kind of shoddy work . . . Yep, I think it's for real!"  ;D

It would be pretty hard for a customizer to make a custom Gilda out of plastic anyway (as opposed to out of clay or something else moldable.)

Looks legit to me, but I wonder if they are a new set or blind bags?
