I've been checking my Walmart regularly but there's been no sign of it. It's also not on our Canadian Walmart site. The shipping would be insane!

I was told at my store that I'd have to order it and get it shipped to store from warehouse because a lot of stores aren't carrying it due to size.

I have checked 3 of my local Walmarts and only 1 out of the 3 had it.

I'm going to cross post this from another thread since it applies here:



Am I wrong or is there a pattern of releasing new characters in special sets/big sets and then later releasing them again as singles or in smaller sets?  I'm thinking of ponies like Shining Armor, Muffins pony and now Tempest and Songbird.  Remember when you could only get Shining Armor by buying the wedding castle playset?  Or how Muffins was the Fair/SDCC exclusive and we never thought they would actually give her a wide release?

I keep telling myself this when eyeing Haven Bay.

@ Sunset, I hope you're right. Judging by the current sale price of Haven Bay online, it would really help if she had another release. Right now she's more expensive than buying the whole playset would be...

Sometimes the big playsets sell really well as "the big Christmas present", so Haven Bay and pearly Queen Novo may not be too hard to find on the secondhand market--eventually.  Dream Castle was the most expensive G1 playset that came with a pony and I used to find Majesty at thrift stores all the time.  I had 10 extras at one point.

But Majesty is neither a store exclusive nor limited by region, and she was out for several years, not just one. I suspect the main pony with the set probably will end up like that, but Haven Bay, possibly not. Rather like Starswirl, who only came with a specific release of the Rarity carriage. Rarity and her carriage are not hard to find. Starswirl is expensive. This is like that.

Wow, it is HUGE!  I love Haven Bay (the peach sea pony).

Me too.

Yeah, but there are a lot of WalMarts in the US and a lot of people do their Christmas shopping there.  They're far more prominent than TRU, and I see TRU exclusive ponies at Value Village fairly often.  (I picked up brushable Minty at Goodwill just yesterday.)

The main question will be if WalMart has these in stock by Christmas.  Sometimes they are not the best at stocking.

It doesn't matter how many Walmarts there are in the US if the rest of the world don't ever get the pony, because that's then an exclusive, cost of which is added to by elevated shipping costs and import duty. We are in this equation too ;)

At present Asda and Smyths (both stores with history of Walmart exclusives) don't show any sign of this release here, and I don't know about Europe. Even Canada so far seems to not be on the list, and if it's big and expensive, it might not be in such great quantities after all.

There will probably be lots of Holly Dashes in the UK in the future second hand market. But it may still make it difficult, costly and annoying for people overseas to get her :P

This gets me hopeful for new seapony brushables that aren't just the mane 6. I'm gonna have like 3 Pinkie Pies if I get all of the ones out there right now, and I'd appreciate some single releases to add more variety to my display.  :silly:

I just ordered this set for $55 on cyber monday but I basically just got it for Haven Bay and the extra accessories because I already have the regular version of the castle....I need to figure out what I want to do with the rest of it...

Someone will have her for sale eventually. I've already seen Queen Novos for sale for a cheap price.

Thanks so much for mentioning this.  Last time I went looking for her on eBay there weren't any listed.  I just picked her up for $20 :)

I also was looking at previously sold Queen Novos and noticed there was one that looked different from the others.  Her "wings" are a different color and there are some other small differences.  I wonder if it's some kind of alternate version.  It's really pretty.

There have been 2 versions of Queen Novo on eBay by a Chinese seller for at least a month. They run about $5-6 each. I've ordered 1 of each to see what there like, but it may be another week or two before I get them.

I was able to order my castle with Haven Bay for $45 & free shipping on Cyber Monday so keep an eye out for sales if you are in the us. The first two weeks in December can see some good sales. Also, lots of toys go on sale in January when stores are trying to get rid of stock.

my local Kroger store has the castle without Haven Bay down to around $40 or something.  (from $99 last month!)
