I found a full set of the unicorns/pesgaus set last weekend. My Target store had them on the shelves with the Collector Ponies and the 2 Rainbow ponies they had left.

For those of you who have found the unicorn / pegasus set, are all three sets now available at your stores?  Or did they discontinue the Collector or Rainbows when they switched in the unicorn / pegasus set?
It certainly looks like they stopped the collectors, although I'll have to see next Target run if they replace where the unipegs were.
There was a full set of Rainbows, too.

There has been some discussion in Finnish sites about the state of some of the ponies, especially Moonstone being prone to yellowing, really badly. Has this happened anywhere else or did we just get a bad batch of ponies?
Image doesn't show this well, but the body has also gone partially really yellow and then there's the obvious head mismatch.
I think I even saw some yellowing on Parasol.

The price/quality ratio seems fantastic to me. The ponies in my collection look great ... I wish all the ponies were still on sale under those conditions and price.

Or it may be a timely factory failure (I doubt it, seeing the image) ...or the photos have sometimes do not do justice to reality.
I sometimes do not even recognize myself! (especially when I appear ugly ;).
I don't have red eyes either).

My Moonstone is perfect and I hope she stays that way...  :(

I just need to get my daughter her Parasol and Starshine. Tbh, hearing that Star is discoloring already, has turned me away from buying her, as I wanted a pristine white one. Whoever suggested that this set be scented oughtta be yelled at. Perhaps politely taking our concerns to Basic Fun will keep other sets from having this issue?

I agree that telling Basic Fun would be a good idea!  None of my Rainbows have discolored so far . . . I wonder if there is a trigger?  Sunlight or something?  Or is it just random?

I'd only seen complaints about Starshine either yellowing or getting stained from her ribbon, not to mention symbol misprints, head/body mismatch, and neck gaps.

People are saying Parasol and Moonstone are discoloring too. There is a picture.

They are not a perfect match to the older Moonstone, who is more blue than the new one.  The new one is a smokier blue color, I'd say.

I just took a look at my Moonstone. She's yellowing now around her lower muzzle and neck. :pout: Which might be fine if she were 30 years old. But its unacceptable when she's brand spanking new. This is BS!

I'm extremely disappointed by this yellowing epidemic. :mad:

I just sent Basic Fun a politely worded email about the yellowing, (complete with picture) and dropped a strong hint that scented plastic has been to known to cause yellowing and discoloration.

So as not to jeopardize future releases, I also told them that we did love buying these ponies new and couldn't wait to see what else they had in store.

Yeah, I know it's not the same shade of blue, but mine is literally sea green right since I got her. Really disappointing. I wonder if even the blue ones will yellow over time..

I don't know if the green means that there has been yellowing- I think the ponies are just more green than blue- and probably there is some color variation between batches?

Mine looks solidly green- it isn't uneven as if she's yellowed, I think this is her actual color (I like her)

Edit:
(Ooops- I erased it by accident- putting it back)

Acetone will likely remove the blush, although non-acetone nail polish remover might work (be careful).
My Starshine has a bit of a mismatch now, and Moonstone is getting there. Parasol looks ok...no wonder that Moonstone I saw was so mismatched. She smells the best, too.
