I have some that are obtainable and some that aren't quite as obtainable for me...

I've been on the lookout for a pristine Confetti and pristine Toppy. There actually was a beautiful Confetti that popped up on eBay a while back, but I got outbid with 2 seconds to spare. I was gutted. But oh well, I'll just be patient.
Not so obtainble would include SSN Hushabye and a piggy pony. Hushabye isn't crazy expensive, but I've got a real problem with saving up money lol. And as cute as piggy ponies are, I'd never go out of my way to pay that much for one. I would be thrilled if I randomly ended up with one, but I just can't justify spending that much cash on apony that wouldn't even be a part of my "main" collection. (My collection consists of US releases only)

Right now, my most wanted are Night Glider, Night Light (big symbol ver.) and Sternanglanz (metallic painted symbol ver.), I love me some celestial themed ponies! They're all quite expensive and relatively uncommon/rare though, so they've been on the wishlist for a good long while.

MOC Chief, I know I'd better win the lotto for that one. :lol: As a kid I had cousins and an aunt who danced at powows. My mom helped me make tiny regalia items for him, ones to match what I'd have worn. I was so, so happy to find there was a Native pony. Granted he is horribly stereotypical but it was something.
Atleast we can laugh about how inaccurate a pony that wore a warbonnet and had a tipi symbol things that alot of plains culture has named wigwam a temporary home for people that lived in the forest
Do you mean Wigwam? Chief is a fire station chief. Either way, I'm glad to hear that you got to have such a personal experience with your pony.

MOC Glory?  I think any way.   I'd also like Mimic but, for her price  - she'd have to be perfect and I think that's a tough find.

My last grails, from what I felt towards them, were Argie Buttons and italian peach colored, Macau style Cotton Candy. I was super lucky to get a decarded Argie Buttons w/o accessories but still/again in her card for much less than I had hoped for, and got a beautiful Cotton Candy with still pink hair just around a month ago. Else, I have been hoping to retrieve a UK Princess Pristina variant with aqua tail quite some time already, one could probably call her a grail as well. I saw her just once and got outbid, that must have been around tree years ago.

Apart from that, I am wondering why I just read "Sternanglanz" (misspelled) already two times? It is "Sternenglanz" actually. :)
Upon a quick websearch for the misspelled version, it took me to Strawberry Reef and also the wiki where I just made the correction. I even checked back on the German card for Sternenglanz  shown on the wiki but it was not misspelled there either.

Daddies Sunbright and Berrytown are in my opinion the two hardest to find European/UK release ponies from the last 2 years of release. I am certain they were shortpacked. I remember seeing them in stores, so I know they were sold in my area, but I never found either of them at carboot sales and had to trade for both of them. Aside getting Daddy Sunbright MOC a few years back, I've never had a double of either. I've been doing this online for 20 years and was carbooting before even that, so there are very few UK ponies for which I have never had a duplicate.

What I'm saying is, you may need to be prepared to spend money to get them, so I would definitely wait until one comes up in great condition. It's not worth buying a poor one to upgrade later, you'll just end up spending way more than you need. Definitely save your dollars and wait for a really nice example that fits into your price bracket.

Meadowsweet is not so bad as the others. I am not sure why :/

I definitely planned to save up for all 3, I know I'm probably looking at $150 each minimum, though you never know, I could get lucky (I recently got Ice Crystal for a steal!). Most of teh Euro/UK ponies I have left are in the high end category, there's only 10 of them I have left, so the list is short and I know I'm in the minefield of uber expensive ponies...I do appreciate the heads up though, and I definitely don't plan to buy any that need upgrades, if I go for it it will be ones that are in very good shape...so I am preparing myself for a wait... :/  :cold:

Meanwhile to save money, I am having customs made of the 7 tales ones to save a little money in my collection overall...that may sound like an odd choice, but teh 7 tales to me are sorta an offshoot anyway, I have never seen teh show but I hear its dreadful...still now that its supposedly available at Dollar Tree here in teh US I'm interested in picking  up a copy...
