I found the rainbow ponies in Trago Mills this week :) They were £11.79 each. Haven't seen any of the collector ones in my area, hope the unicorns and pegasi will show up soon.

I found Wave 3 in Nordstrom Rack today, thanks for the tip! Does anyone want me to pick them up for them after work today?

My set came in the mail- they are beautiful- I love the hair, it is soooo soft!

I am hoping it was the scent that was causing some of the rainbows to discolor- hopefully no discoloration has been noticed on the new ponies? Maybe too soon to tell!

Not like I wouldn't get them anyway of course...

Thanks for the info about Kaplan Toys! I was able to get the third set for not much more than MSRP (about $1.55 more per pony) after the 20% off coupon. Probably cheaper than using up a bunch of gas going around searching for them  ^.^

I don't think Walmart is going to get the 35ths. I see them on their website, but always outta stock. I don't think I'd count on them being there.

Matcha if you can get to Tavistock the toy shop there has the collectors ponies for 9.99. They're at the back next to/underneath the Barbies.

Thanks for the heads up about Trago, I checked about a month ago and had found nothing. Are they in Liskeard or Newton Abbott?  :P

It';s great to know they've finally made it out of the South East and into other parts of the UK :D

It seems like they're probably going to get more widespread in the lead up to Christmas which means wave 3, if it is coming, is more likely going to be around February after all, maybe Easter...

I'm curious at the minute if Toymaster will pick up the rainbows. So far I've only seen collectors in shop and catalogue.

But here's hoping for wave 3 too. :P

Yeah, I wonder this too. I have also only seen the Collector Ponies in one Toymaster out of the three I've coincidentally found in reach of where I now live. Whereas John Lewis say they are restocking but my JL no longer has a tag for the Collector Ponies, only the Rainbow ones :/

I wonder if the Wave 3 release will ever really . . . release, or if they'll go the way of the 1984 set of sea ponies, which I've heard were hard to find even in the 80s. It seems like the Targets in my area are getting backlogged with collector and/or rainbow ponies, and we've established that the Targets won't order Wave 3 until they sell the collectors and that they don't know whether a shipment with that DCPI will be collector ponies or Wave 3 ponies. I've only seen one Wave 3 pony at Target (Glory) but found most of the set and some doubles at Nordstrom Rack the other day. I wonder if Wave 3 is going directly to discount outlet stores. :/ That would be a shame for many reasons, one of them being that I think more little girls would see them at Target. I guess we'll have to wait and see, though.

I checked my Nordstroms and Nordstroms Rack and didn't see them there.  Maybe they'll restock soon?

So the DPCI is set by Target itself, right?  Not Basic Fun?

Maybe I'll write a letter to Target HQ and beg THEM to change the DPCI??  It's killing me that this set is so hard to find, not for my own sake (because I bought mine online from Kaplan) but for all the lost sales from people randomly browsing in Target.

:wonder: I'm not sure. Probably Target sets the DPCI? The inner workings of stores and suppliers are a mystery to me. Yes, if you have time, write a letter! It's bugging me too that people, especially kids, might not get to see Wave 3 in Target.

Could the ones found at Nordstrom Rack have been meant for TRU?
