Across all generations what do you think is the most inflated pony of 2017 in regards to popularity resulting in a price increase?

I would say the little baby birthday ponies. Baby Gametime and Sugarcake. They never come up and when they do everyone piles on the bids from what I hear. That or any Nirvana that is rare.

Yeah, I have seen them go from $250-around $500 for just one lately!

This is my absolute agony. I have Gametime and have been trying to reunite her with Sugarcake for about the last 18 years. Her price goes up at a faster rate than my income and she's still impossible. I don't have that kind of money, so Gametime remains lonely. Poor baby.

She's my grail and my last pony from what I consider the regular line of MLP, not including Nirvana. Unfortunately she's been that for a long time. And she probably will stay that way.

Re the TAF babies, that sounds more like the kind of price they used to be, so it's more like they had a huge drop if $30 was normal for a while.

I have actually seen the TAF babies around $125-$150 lately when they are usually $60-$80

I feel like mail order Scribbles has really jumped up in price in the past year or two.  I remember when she used to go for about $50-$75 US and now I've seen her sell for $130-150 or sometimes close to $200.

THAT makes more sense ;)


Scribbles and Dabble used to sell more than that. Even back when I first came online her price was around the 90-100$ mark, and that was 20 years ago. Rapunzel used to be $80 or so back in the late 1990s, but she went up a lot at speed...

Another problem with Sugarcake (at least for me) is that even if the price is lower, they're usually GSP and if they are GSP, it adds on another $120 or so for customs charges (which is much higher than the actual rate of custom charge that UK borders would add) and then shipping on top of that. Additionally GSP doesn't guarantee signature on delivery so items can get left in plant pots. I have had that happen with other things.

So basically I am not going to spend an extra $150 on an already expensive pony so that some courier can hide it like a bone around the front garden.

It has made it much more difficult to get anything valuable. I have more or less given up :/

If 18 years waiting isn't patient, what is? Will I need to wait till retirement age? xD
