Possible convention exclusive?

If this is a con exclusive, I'll be ok with it sense I don't have the overwhelming need for this one.

Though I'm worried that the new Tempest brushable is a con exclusive.  She reminds me a lot of the size and special mold they used for the Mane-iac exclusive.

The head looks like it doesn't go with the body. I'm also thinking back fin with the baloons on it looks like it should be hired up on the body/back.

My constant comment tends to be I hope they look better in person but meh, the head just doesn't look right to me.

Yeah, I know what you mean about the fin placement.  But from what I've seen, that's the way they designed them in the movie.  I think they were overthinking trying to put the symbols in the exact same place as on a pony but it doesn't quit look right on these.  * or it could be that all the hair flowing behind had the tendency to cover the fin if it was higher on the back.

But it doesn't bother me so much that I can't enjoy the pony.  While, I won't be tracking this one down, it is making me excited to see more of Princess Sky Star.

Iiiiinteresting!  The light-up button does make me wonder if it's the SDCC (and Hascon?) exclusive.  Vinyl Scratch also had the light up button and was covered in bling.

I'm fine if she is the convention exclusive because then I can save some money and skip this one, lol.  I like ponies with embedded glitter, like the Sparkle ponies, but not glued on glitter.

Anyone know if the SDCC exclusives are the same as the Hascon exclusives?  I know the last year (or the last couple years?) the MLP Fair got the same exclusive ponies as SDCC.

But I am wondering if Hasbro will go for unique exclusives this year at Hascon to really promote their new convention?

(For anyone who hasn't been following the Fair sub-board, Hasbro owns the rights to the MLP Fair name, and has chosen to meld it into Hascon.  If I got any of that wrong then someone please correct me.)

It would make sense to have an exclusive just for Hascon.  It's their own event and they benefit from it directly.  Plus, by time Hascon rolls around the SDCC will be several weeks if not a couple months old news?  The thing about the Fair and SDCC is they were scheduled only a week or two apart.  Revealing the exclusive at the Fair was only worked to build up hype for SDCC for those who wouldn't go to the Fair but might go to the SDCC.

And I suppose it could be argued that there is precedence.  Remember the year DJ was the exclusive and they also released that blinged out TS on their website at the same time?

SDCC is tomorrow and still not a peep about any MLP exclusives. I think we are going to have to wait for Hascon.

It looks like a good candidate, but then again it is listed on Amazon.com, so I think unlikely.

Either way, as much as I like glitter, an easy pass for me...especially since the light up feature probably adds $20 to the price...

but I do like the looks of Gummy!

I'm going to be sad if it is the exclusive, simply because I can't get it :sad:
It's a merpony. AND glittery. Two of my favourite aesthetics, especially when combined. waaant!

BTW, one of the Transformers exclusives is a skateboard themed Optimus Prime, who comes with a minicon (who of course turns into a skateboard) named Shreddicus Maximus.  I am not even kidding, this is a real thing that is happening.

The weird thing is when I look at the TF message boards the people there are just commenting on whether they like the color scheme, not the fact that it's SKATEBOARDING OPTIMUS AND A GUY NAMED SHREDDICUS MAXIMUS.
