Edit to add a final frustration: I'm a little annoyed that we're not getting flutters because vendors didn't want to pick up the line, but stores were willing to pick up these feline mutations...
Have we had explicit confirmation of that?

the general impression I'm getting is that these are just a "filler" line designed to keep MLP on the shelves while they work on G5


That's what I'm thinking as well. But even so, I still don't quite get their train of thought; why invest in new molds etc. for a filler line, Hasbro?

They could have reused the movie molds, make new characters, re-release some of the show's best episodes to keep MLP on tv. I mean, it's not like Pony Life is completely new and totally original. It's basically a cheaper rehash of FiM.

I don't really get what they're trying to accomplish with PL.

Riiiight?

*raises hand*

Excuse me, but have Hasbro's production making decisions ever been logical?

I imagine shops would be more likely to pick up something *new* rather than Yet Another Re-release? And reruns are only going to keep people interested for so long... Honestly, I think this is one of their *less* nonsensical ideas. Keep pumping out *anything* just to keep it "relevant". I don't agree with it, but I see the logic behind it. I mean, we're all keeping an eye on G4.5 to see what happens next, right?

This month's Egmont magazine has a new Pinkie figure!

very cute! I like the little accessories they included, that's nice.

Also I didn't post about this before since it's pretty much a re-release (also because I forgot :blush:) but last month's came w/ this Celestia:

she's a re-release, except this time she has blue stripes in her hair instead of green. Pretty minor but *shrug* still kinda different, I guess?

Question for other UK peeps - Does anyone know if this Rainbow Dash magazine figure has been released in the UK yet? :) I missed a few magazines last year so idk if I need to hunt for her on eBay or just keep an eye out in the future ;)

i havent bought MLP since the teeny pony-life cat-face ones came out - so for 5 ponies with costumes it worked for me.

60 for a set of 5 doesn't seem as painful when weighed against the prices of the individual ponies.

For those of us on strict budgets it is.

I was hoping they'd be closer to 30 so I could get an extra set to customize.  Is there any chance the price will go down if they hit Amazon?  Like around Black Friday?
