I got Bubbles, Seashell, Bowtie and Apple Jack today - Woot! The odd thing is I was at Target twice yesterday (don't ask) and they were not there. This morning I popped in for a latte and my son insisted we go back and look and we did and there they were! Anyone know when the rainbows come out? Have they been spotted in stores yet?

Congratulations!   I'm checking myself multiple times a week waiting for them to restock so I can get that Bubbles I missed.   I haven't heard anything yet about when the 2nd set of Rainbows is coming.

Just a quick note to UK collectors if it hasn't been said yet.

All the cool stuff announced on their facebook that they now have the Pretty Parlour in stock. So it seems to have finally got to the distributors properly.

Also I know it's been said that Argos are stocking the Collectors ponies but importantly they're included in their 2 for £15 offer. So if anyone is missing two or more it may be a cheap way to get them.

Ooh thanks for that heads-up!!

None of the stores by me have any of the retros at the moment. All the wave 1 and 2 have sold out around Christmas. The parlour is on Amazon but not in stores yet. I want wave 3 and 4. :-Z

So I follow this account on Instagram
https://www.instagram.com/p/Bt9LXBggiBb/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=1frccnm8m4flh

They have posted two pictures of the second set of ponies so far.  I asked if there was anything else displayed for after that wave .  Their reply was “yes, but top secret still 😉”

So I’m excited that we might still have something more to see yet.

Also here they state that 4 are coming soon but the two shown will be later in the year.  So they might not be coming in full waves of 6?

That seems odd to release 4 now and 2 later on out of a 6 pony set . Unless there was some sort of production issue. The other possibility is that the "4 coming soon" are the Earth ponies we are now starting to see pop up in stores. My local Target seems to be getting them in as I have seen them restocked 3 weeks in a row. However, I have noticed that for some reason Bow Tie is the popular one and tends to be missing off the shelf. I did manage to nab one the other night though.

I wonder why Starflower and Pinwheel are being delayed. Do they want to keep the sets to four ponies for some business reason? Given the popularity of unicorns, it seems strange to delay those particular two without a strong reason, so maybe it's an issue with the new Gusty pose mold.

With those two being delayed, what are later shipments going to look like after their eventual release? Will there then be six rainbow ponies per shipping box, essentially short-packing the unicorns over the course of the year? Or will there still be four ponies per shipment with solely the unicorns but two of each? Or the unicorns plus two of the other rainbow ponies? Or with two new ponies?

Too bad there's no indication of seaponies; I was thinking 2019 could be the year for them. :( I'm holding out hope that they are still in the "maybe, if we can find a buyer" column and not passed over completely.

You know, I seem to remember Clipper mentioning having isssues with this same mold for hqg1c. Hmmm.
