hi all, i couldn't find anything here nor find anything on any twit or face b as i don't do social media so i thought i would share pics here of the different boxing for anyone interested.
yay some 35th's came here, shame only 4 out of the 6 rainbow's and no beautiful box art but still better then nothing.

so starshine smells like coconut and vanilla (surfboard wax), for the rest its weird trying to pin point the smell, we all said something different though parasol was mainly strawberry, sunlight like a sweetie, apple shampoo smell and windy a bit of both sunlight and parasol.

i wonder if any more 35th's will be exclusive somewhere.  ^.^

Nice, congrats on getting them, thanks for sharing! ^.^

I'd seen on FB to watch for these in Cotton On, I didn't realise it was the kids store and when I asked staff they looked at me like I was crazy (and sent me to Typo, another crazy dead end). I've put them on my X-Mas wishlist so we'll see if I get them, I'm not entirely sold on the retro rainbow ponies.

I liked the packaging until I saw the words 'cutie mark'...Is that written on the other boxes? If so, why have I not noticed it??

It is a nice colour scheme though.

Also, speaking of colour, how do you guys spell that word over there? I notice the box says color but I was under the impression Australia and NZ used the u spelling? Am I wrong?

WOW, I don't know what I was expecting, but I wasn't expecting something that dramatically different!  I dig it, though--very striking!  So interesting that they used the later G1 logo.

A shame it's 4 out of 6, but that's better than 0 out of 6 I guess . . . Interesting that Sunlight got left out of the 5-pack, yet here she is.

Would you mind if I shared these pictures on Tumblr, with a link back here?

We absolutely do use the British spelling, so the box SHOULD reflect that by saying "colour".

The navy packaging provides a striking contrast to those sweet pastels.

I'm super annoyed at the incorrect use of cutie mark though.

The packaging is nice! I guess in contrast to the other packaging- more noticeable..

Is it possible they left out Moonstone because of the color changing issue?

This is interesting packaging. Feels much more modern.
:/ at the lack of the other two.

that is exactly what i was thinking, i only have the collector pony box's and they don't say that. im guessing the other rainbow and glory set don't say cutie mark.  :huh:
and yes definatly 'OU" all the way this side of the world :D i can't believe i missed that when i read it late last night :lol:


i'm really missing the G1 art work on these but the plus side for me is the lack of the big 35th Anniversary spot and the messy "scented sign" that i reckon ruins the G1 feel for me.

yes that's fine hun :)
and yeah i was thinking the same about sunlight missing out on the big pack. she sure is pretty in that green, very different to my aqua coloured ones.

Thanks!

Actually the single-language English language rainbow pony boxes do have the same line about cutie marks.   In fact they have the exact same text, even down to where the line breaks are.  Which probably explains "color" instead of "colour" (because they used the text from the US box).

The bi-lingual box doesn't have the cutie mark thing, it only has the first sentence of the blurb.

Thanks for the pics. :) I love the usual box background but this one is striking as well. I wonder why Moonstone and Skydancer are left out?
