I have a few:)

1. We love that you've made 2 fan favorites sets for TRU so far, is there any chance of holding a collector's poll to see which characters we'd actually like to see in this set? That way it can truly be a fan favorite collection chosen by the fans:)

2. How is the G4 line doing as far as sales go?

3. Do the characters that get released 10 different ways actually sell well? In short, why don't we see more of the background characters that appear in the show? We would like variety, not 25 different Pinkie Pies....not that we won't buy every single version of Pinkie Pie, but please can you focus on some of the other awesome Characters too!?

4. And like everyone else, where are the boys!? We've been begging for years for more boy ponies only to be teased by them in the show. Collectors promise you Hasbro, you're sitting on a gold mine if you finally release some male characters like Big Mac, Sorin, and the Royal Guards etc...

While I really do appreciate the opportunity to present our questions to Hasbro at the fair, I kind of wonder why they even still bother with a Q&A since they either dance around the question or just give an outright "we can't say anything about that at this time" or "stay tuned."

Regardless, the question I'd love an answer to is how it can possibly be profitable for them to keep releasing the same characters over and over and over and OVER. I can understand them wanting to keep the main 6 on the shelves at all times, but surely they'd make more money if they tossed out a few new ponies every once in a while instead of just adding tinsel to Fluttershy's hair or putting Pinkie Pie's cutie mark on the other side and packaging her with  a leftover Ponyville teacup.

Why aren't the relevant toys released closer to the time that the episodes air?

I wonder if we should clarify that when we ask for blindbags to brushables that we mean playful/fashion style size brushables and not putting brushable hair on the blindbags?  Was there some confusion about that last year?

Are there plans to release more brushable (not BB) baby ponies individually? I'm sure baby versions of the Mane 6 would go over well! :)

Will they be making the main 6 for Build a Bear?  More characters, and how often will they come out?  I love ponies AND Build a Bear!  My two favorite things to collect combined!

Will there be any Fall Ponys? Art Ponys like the G3s had that you could order online? And do they ever play around with the idea of pony points again, for mail orders?

I tried to read over this, so I'm sorry if this has been asked:

Are we going to be getting any Exclusive ponies (such as Walmart, Target, TRU, etc) that are seasonal releases (i.e., Winter (Christmas usually), Spring (Easter), Fall (Halloween)), as we were seeing in the G3s? (i.e., a set of 3 Easter Ponies from Target, or something like that)
-AND: If so, is there any chance these WON'T be mane 6 characters? (PLEASE no more Mane 6!)

I second the Halloween and Xmas ponies! We LOVED them in G3s. And Hasbro did a Halloween/Nightmare Night episode for FiM. I've asked it in past Fairs as well...so, Can we pretty please have Holiday ponies?

Also, what about separate pony wear (which could include costumes)? Dolls do it all the time. Hasbro's done it for ponies in the past. Rarity *owns and operates* a clothing boutique! There have been a few episodes on *fashion*

1.  Are you considering the future of My Little Pony beyond Friendship is Magic at this time?

2.  Will you ever consider solving the trademark/copyright issue with G1?

1. Will we get more brushable boy ponies? Like Comet Tail, Big Mac and Time Turner?
2. What about releases OTHER than the mane six? Could we have more background ponies as well? Maybe more previous gen reboots?

Yeah I remember that. They seemed to be confused that we were asking for brushable blindbags and not blindbag characters turned into playful pony sized brushables.

Q. Where's Bic Mac and the other boys? Collectors have been asking since the very beginning, and selling them in a playset lot puts buyers off, they don't usually want the playset (no space),  and just want the pony, so why not just release a line of single brushable boys with accs, like big mac and the harvester?

Are there any senior Hasbro staff that cut their teeth on the g1 versions of mlp?
