At that price and with the annoyance of blind-boxing, no way am I touching these.

Sad really, because I'd love more quality G1 merch.  Might have been more tempted if they were better representations, but single sided symbols? COME ON. At ~20$ you can afford to print on both darn sides!  Super disappointing, though the 'hey there's super rare figures most of you won't ever have the chance to get' thing turns me off even more.

Couldn't have said it better myself...disappointing  :(

There will be one online place selling them for $12 once she goes through the pre-ordered, and if I recall they won't be random. I still think that the places that are selling them for $20 hiked the prices. $12 to $15 is pretty close to what LS would sell them at themselves I think (I say $15 because I did a slight bit of math to figure that out since they mostly sell the display cases for quite a bit). I will say though a lot of your higher quality items are going to cost more, I asked another person to compare the quality to Funko and yes they said the quality was much better. I'm a bit more forgiving in that case.

They look interesting... though I like the Hallmark ornaments better!  However I can't say I wouldn't buy one if I saw it on the shelf....  ;)

Haven't seen this before! I can't say I'll be getting any, as the price is too high for the quality for me, but it's nice to see more G1 merch anyhow.

I didn't know about them before seeing this thread! I may look into picking up one, but at that price I cannot see myself getting any more than one. Maybe two, but probably just one.

Is your Princess Sparkle lavender or more pinkish Tiffy?

Reading everyone's comments. From discussing with the representatives at the Loyal Subjects:

The glitter chase figures depend on which retailers bought them. We should still be seeing them in the future but it is unclear which retailer will have which chase figure.

Gusty might be a chase figure but it is more likely that she is just a rarer common figure.

I can't wait till we find out who the retailers are an unravel the mystery of who has what or how to get as complete of a set as possible. :D

Oh, no! They made Gusty a chase figure?? WHY? I've been waiting forever for these to come out so I could (hopefully) add the Gusty one to my Gusty Army. I just love Gusty! So evil for them to make her harder to find. She is definitely a fan favorite. That's just mean.

My plan is to buy two or three of these and the ones I get, I get. :)  I've never been much of a completionist anyway so I don't need to "get them all."  Also I've never liked Gusty much (I like her personality but not her color scheme) so if I get one I'll trade to one of you guys, lol.

They will be less than $17 in stores, I think nearer to $15 or $14.  They're $17 on eBay because the people selling them have to make a profit while paying eBay's fees. :)

I checked my local Barnes and Noble today and didn't find these. The in store computer said they only had Power Rangers, but I couldn't find those either.

I will probably get at least and hope for the best. :)

Hm these do seem a bit G4ish with the big heads and simple poses and single-side symbol especially being mislabeled as "cutie marks", arg.

Nonetheless, they're pretty cute and I'll get some if I see them.  It's great to have new G1 stuff.

I especially like the separate-part tail bow.  I see why the symbol might be on one side only, because to accommodate the leg joints it's a bit high on the bum so if there were two you'd be seeing both of them at the same time.

I want Applejack and Princess Sparkle.

It is bad that I have an impulse to chew on the tail bow?

Oh- they are pretty cute IRL!  I would probably not be able to pass them by if I saw them at a store...

I'm sad that Lickety Split is a chase though...

i found them on entertainment earth for only 14$, i guess thats not too bad. i would usually consider that too much for a blindbag, but they are like, fullsized articulated vinyl figures of popular g1s. i will likely only get one or two, and ill Probably wait til i see them in stores instead of online.

im not sure why everybody is in a fuss about calling it a "cutie mark". ¯\_(ツ)_/ symbol..cutiemark..whats the difference? potato potato.

I dont find these too appealing at all, I dont think they are ugly just meh to me.  I think I will pass on them.
