Man, ever since I saw the Uni&Pegs the one time NO WHERE to be found. Going nuts going to target 3-4x a week!

Wave 1 is still shelf warming with occasional restocks...less of the rainbows, but definitely still being restocked over here!

Also my parasol is TOTALLY discoloring! Her head is a different color than her body. Her body is more pinky and the head has a yellow tinge! :(

So annoyed about this.  My Parasol and Moonstone too.

So today I asked the Target employees to check in the back for the 3rd wave unicorn / pegasus set . . . Unfortunately, as we already know, they have the same DCPI as the Collector ponies.  So the employee brought out a box but it was Blue Belle, Snuzzle, etc.

Then he said something that makes sense:  since the two sets have the same DCPI, Target's inventory system sees them as being "the same."  The system has no way of distinguishing Collector pony set vs Unicorn / Peg set.  So as long as they have a lot of stock of Collector ponies, they won't re-order.  Once they reach a low number of that DCPI, they will automatically re-order, which would presumably be when they'd get the unicorn / pegasus set.

"But it will be a while," he said, "because it looks like we have 14 in the backroom."  I didn't ask if he meant 14 collector ponies or 14 CASES of collector ponies, I was busy dying a little inside.



That explains why when the unicorn/pegaus set apepared at my Target only a few Collector ponies and half of the Rainbows were on the shelves. I realized the other day I have exactly half of the Rainbows and half of the Unicorn/pegaus sets.

ugh, be careful with Sunlight, folks.  Her magenta bow stains her butt.  What a waste.

Do you think the box artwork is an indication that we'll get sea ponies and the waterfall playset? What's on the Unicorn/Pegasus box?

The retro rainbows and collector ponies are definitely in John Lewis in Oxford St if anyone is in central London between now and Christmas.

Ooh nice!
I wonder if Hamleys, Harvey Nics or Harrods have them too?
Been ages since I went "posh shopping"  :lol:

The unicorns and pegasus ponies are in the clouds above a meadow with a mountain range in the background.  I think they might have used the backcard art and edited out the Earth Ponies that were featured on the backcards.

The unicorns and pegasus ponies are in the clouds. There's a meadow with a mountain range in the background on the ground. I think they might have used the backcard art and edited out the Earth Ponies that were featured on the backcards.

I'm still waiting on the unicorns and Pegasus ponies. I know they are showing up in my area so hopefully they pop up at one of mine soon.

One of my local targets has the wrap around CP's.  Still no sign of the Unis and Pegs.

Snuzzle was the only CP left at my Target. Funny, from what I've heard, she's one of the more popular ones. Same with Moonstone and Parasol, 2/3 rainbows at my store.

Taking a chance that Brick Seek had been giving me the finger, at least at the Target I shop at. I  made a Target run and found an entire set of rainbows. Picked up Sky Dancer because she was my childhood rainbow pony.

Of the ones I smelled, Sky Dancer and Sunlight had the strongest smell. >_< Both to me smell like generic laundry soap. Am going to debox and air out Sky Dancer, hopefully, that will ditch the scent.  Was going to pass on these but it seems one can work around the scent gimmick.

They also had the set of unicorns/pegasus, once again Brick Seek saying no dice for my location. Those were put onto the shelf in the little kid's toys. Though there wasn't a shelf tag, probably just dropped them off. They had an entire set of those.

I'm in northern Cali.

If you air them out, the scent will die down to something more tolerable. The Sunny Scents were never this potent.
