All of Angel's set-mates are harder to find, and some are sought after as well.
G1 Wishlist  It's the final countdown! Looking to purchase the last few G1's for my collection - Watercolor Baby Sea Ponies Foamy, Misty & Surfy - Red Roses - SHS Sweet Sundrop - Springy - Teeny Tiny Snookums (#2)

Twilight, Taffy, Crumpet.  Quite possibly Satin n Lace?

Angel isn't that rare. Just htf in decent condition.

The second set are all harder to find than the first set, but I'd say Angel and Crumpet are the two most sought after.  :)

In addition to five new ponies, the 2nd set also included Hippity Hop (who was an "add-on" in the first set).  You can tell the two versions apart because the 2nd set of So-Softs have much shorter, less fluffy fur.

Even though none of the 1st set of So-Softs exactly rare, some individuals can be hard to locate simply because there were so many ponies in that set.  Like I never see Twist a lot.

Crumpet is hard to get in nice condition. I can see her being popular. I think the second set is harder to come by with decent flocking.

Twilight definitely. I was lucky enough to get one in a swap this year from an amazing partner.

I think it is generally difficult to find any SS in perfect so soft condition-

But don't confuse rareness with popularity-  some ponies are just more popular and highly sought than others (like Angel, and Mimic is a good example- neither are RARE but both are highly sought and people want them)

I feel like the 2nd set is actually easier to find with good flocking.  Yeah, they get the flocking rubs on lips, ears, and edges of hooves, like the 1st set . . . But unlike the first set they don't get that "smooshed down dirty foggy flocking" thing going on, because their flocking is so short to begin with.  Kind of like Sylvanian Families flocking.

It also cleans WAY more easily than 1st set flocking.

I agree that Twilight, Bangles, Taffy, Crumpet, and to a lesser extent Hippity Hop are all rarer and/or more sought after.

I feel like the mid-season replacements in the first wave (e.g. Twist, Scrumptious) are often more desirable -- although not rarer -- than the SS versions of previous ponies (e.g. Gusty, Posey) but that might be personal bias coloring my opinion.

I think Twist, Bangles, Skippity, Scrumptious and Hippity are more towards the middle of that spectrum.

The SS ponies are confusing...I think we're kind of talking about set 1, set 1.5 and set 2 (or 1, 2, 3).


So roughly set #1:

set 1.5 is where six of the above were swapped out and replaced with the following six:

Set 2 is these:

So none of them were sold in my country so I'm basing this on what I've seen and heard over the last 2 decades online but it seems to me that...

Most of set 1 are not super htf although some have issues like fading.
Some of set 2 are middling in rarity but not necessarily super-hard to find.
Set 3 - Bangles seems most common of that set to me, plus Hippety Hop. Crumpet seems the hardest to find. Taffy in good condition I have found next to impossible (although some folk here have nice ones).

Overall though a mint so soft pony is probably going to get a lot of attention.

I would say Cupcake is quite common?

As someone also mentioned, there is So Soft Satin & Lace as well. She was a mail order so is harder to find because of that.

Like Galactica said, any So Soft pony in good condition is pretty hard to find, even a "common" one. ;)

The second set of SS ponies are Angel, Bangles, Crumpet, Taffy, Twilight, and Hippety Hop. Although Hippety was also released in the first set, so really just the five others.

The first set of So Softs is massive in comparison. Ten "base" ponies with two auxiliary sets of six -- 22 ponies in all!

There’s also SS Best Wishes from the Birthday Party set. 😀 She seems to be pretty common.  Is SS Twilight getting harder to find? I don’t see as many for sale lately as there were a few years ago.

When I was really into collecting online a few years ago (over a decade) it was murder trying to find SS Twilight for a decent price. Not sure how but I ended up with a beautiful one, perhaps I've just blocked out how much I paid for her  :lol:
