Number of fair exclusives this year?
« on: February 04, 2013, 12:23:21 PM »
I don't know if this has been addressed before, but do we know how many 'extra' fair exclusives will be available for purchase (either at the fair, or on the Hasbro site after)?

Up until last year, I could get an extra fair pony to debox for weeks (sometimes months!) after the fair on the Hasbro site or the MLP fair site.

Of course this was before the FIM fanbase exploded and the demand grew by leaps and bounds... will Hasbro take that into account when deciding how big the run should be?
:biggrin:

I'm not sure if Summer will be able to tell you the number of exclusives that will be available due to her contract with Hasbro. I'm sure she's doing everything she can to make sure that the Fair gets as many as possible, but in the end Hasbro will make the decision on the quantity.

Up until last year, the Fair had its own exclusive pony. Last year was the first time that Hasbro decided to make one exclusive between the Fair & Comicon, and by doing that, the number of ponies available for the Fair was *much* smaller than ever before. This, combined with the fact that the exclusive was a very popular pony made it sell out faster than ever.

I get the feeling it's going to be a very limited number again...

Thanks kitkatvintage, I assumed that would be the case but thought I'd ask for anyone else who may be curious.  ^.^

Here's hoping that everyone who'd like to snag an exclusive this year gets one!

Does anyone know if they sold out at last years fair?  It sounds like this one will be bigger with more booths and therefore more people but at least it will give us an idea.

YES! They sold out within ... what, twenty minutes or so?  But that was a super popular character.  How quickly it sells out depends on what the exclusive is.

Here are my thoughts.  There are at least 100 exclusives (for the packages).  Based on last year's experiences, my guess is that there will be 75-100 extras for sale at the Fair.  But I could be wrong, of course.

I don't think we'll be sharing the exclusive with SDCC, because the $50 price tag is closer to what we were used to paying when we had our own exclusive.   Sharing with SDCC last year made the Fair pony cheap at $20 because Hasbro could make a larger run of a pony they already had in the works.  $50 is more in line with them having to make a special, more limited run.

Then again, we aren't seeing the word "exclusive" and there were only about 100 or so released with the presales.

I think it was already said by sweettune that it will be limited like last year

also, I hope they put a limit on how many each person in line can buy just like last year. (SDCC did NOT do this and scalpers bought them out before actual collectors could)
