Who is your grail pony?
« on: May 07, 2018, 10:48:10 AM »
At the minute we are having what could be considered to be a little heatwave in the UK. :relaxed:
Last night I was having a BBQ with my family and it made me realise how much I need TAF Munchy in my life! :cry:
I need a pony which represents my love for Gerkhins! 
I feel like the odds are against my favour however as not only does she seem to command a high price in sales on eBay for example, shipping from the US to the UK can be horrendous, and as we all know Munchy was sold exclusively in the USA  :wail: She deffinately isnt as rare as some of the ponies you guys desire however  :P

Do you have a pony that is seemingly unnatainable? If so how come? I'm interested to know so i dont feel so alone in my quest for a burger loving pony  ;)

Munchy was also sold in the Netherlands I believe.

If it cheers you up any, I found Night Glider here in the UK, and she's from the same set. She wasn't sold here either. Sometimes ponies do travel. You never know.

I don't have Munchy myself, but my sister does, she's a favourite of hers because of the theme xD.

My grails are probably now - loose, Baby Sugarcake, who is constantly on sale lately but always out of my price bracket. I have been looking for her for about 18 years. I have her sister, but not her. But I have been fortunate enough to see her and even hold her at ponycon :) They wouldn't let me take her home though :( ;)

My MOC grails are all ponies from my childhood collection. Windy (Rainbow Pony) on the UK vertical card is #1 because she was my first pony. I have missed out on her twice on ebay now, once ages back because I had no money, and once recently because I didn't know she was there till after the auction had already ended. But it gives me hope there are still Windys out there. One day I will have her.

The other two that are really high on my grail MOC list are Pearly baby sea pony Ripple (UK card) and Rainbow Curl Pony Rainbow Magic (UK card). I do know both of these also exist as I have seen them for sale but just missed out on them.

So those are my grails.

P.S The weather here is lovely at the moment ;D and the flowers are so pretty :D I went out to the bank holiday carboot sale and it was just nice to get out of London and into somewhere green in the sunshine :D

One day I want my very own Takara pony, but Ebay's base price is over a thousand dollars for one.

My main grails are the Alternate Birthflower Ponies.  I am SO CLOSE to finishing the set, but October (Cosmos) keeps eluding me  :(  I'd like to get March (Daffodil) and April (Daisy) loose too eventually, I have them MOC, but I wand to display the whole set on a shelf together. 

Isn't it funny how you can go literally months without seeing a pony you really want up for sale, and then all at once or in the space of a few weeks three or more will suddenly crop up.  I got three of the Alternate Birthflowers in a month earlier this year, and found none since.  It's either a flood or a drought!

One day I would love to get the MO Mummy and Baby but they're way out of my price range right now.  One day...

Sternanglanz. So pretty, and the pose is beautiful :) But I doubt I'll ever get her with her price and me being located in the US where I can't find her locally.

My ultimate grail would be to get any Takara pony, but I can't imagine ever having the patience necessary to save up for one!

A more realistic grail of mine is Windwalker.

Sterenglanz is amazing!

I think if you know where to look, she's definitely attainable even if you live in the US. I don't think she's as expensive as some of the others in that set but there are some variations on her symbol I think so some may be more expensive than others. So I suggest if you aren't worried about variations, find out if one is cheaper and go hunting in lots for her :) She was sold in Germany and Austria at the very least, and I see her come up for sale quite a lot...

@Starstrider - you have an enviable geographical advantage for alt birthflowers! I have only one of that set - mine, Violet (who I call Stedmoder because she's from Denmark and apparently according to the card that's the Danish xD) but I would love to get more of them. I just can't afford to go trying to collect them seriously. They're so expensive :( but so much nicer than the white ones (which the UK didn't officially get either, but did get some on clearance at the end of MLP for some reason).

I have deliberately avoided going out to look for these other than Violet because the financial pain is just too much to bear ;)

I got outbid by less than a dollar on a green-haired Peruvian Lickety Split (she sold for less than $50! [sob]) years back, and the few that have come up since then go for waaaaay more than I can afford. I suppose all 6 Takara adults (especially the blue and green ones) are pretty impossible grails as well.

However, by far my most wanted ponies are - and I know this is weird - the last few Hasbro Pop/Design a Ponies made before the line got cancelled. Specifically, Starry Eyes, Meadow Flower and Cloud Chaser, as well as small Celestia. I waited too long to buy them on Taobao and they sold out, and as far as I know they were only ever sold in stores in Scandinavian countries. If you know where I can find these, PLEASE PM ME! I'm starting to give up on ever owning them.
