Cool news, I only learned of Mighty Ape a short time ago. I was glad to find a decent online Australian store with ponies.

Congrats, that's awesome news :D It really sounds like, little by little, these are spreading across the globe.

Now if only they'd kick on and get a better spread across Europe as so far I think only a few countries have seen them on shelves :/

Taffeta, they only got them in because I kept emailing them and asking for the ponies. If you know of a shop that might be willing to sell the, in your area/country then just bug the hell out of them until you get a response.

Isn't Cotton On stocking them? I thought I heard something about that.

Marlin, they only have the rainbow ones and aren’t going to be getting any of the others (I asked).

Oh no! That means we won't get them here in SA either. Drat...

They're here where I am in the UK - both rainbows and collector ponies - so it's not really anything I can help with in that sense. I'm more thinking about other EU countries where they haven't actually had distribution of either set. Right now I think the UK is also the only place collector ponies are appearing widely in Europe although I hope that your news is a good sign that maybe they're going to spread out more into the continent as well.

As it happens, I did write a lot to Basic Fun, to Hasbro UK and to various suppliers earlier last year about these ponies. I don't think it really helped as most of those suppliers aren't taking these in yet - but it did help with Hasbro as they were the ones who decided we didn't need the COllector Ponies. I don't know if it had any direct impact, but not long after I told them that there was a big market for them here, suddenly Basic Fun decided that Collector Ponies should come to the UK after all. But the most active people in trying to get these to Europe were a few people from Spain, and as far as I know, Spain hasn't had them yet. Europe is more complicated I think, because to Basic Fun, they think "The EU has them, that's fine", but in reality the EU is a lot of countries and right now, not all of them are stocking these.

I am so happy that Aus, NZ and SA are getting them properly, though, as I know you guys were really worried you wouldn't. Well done for your hard work in getting a result :D

No problem! It makes sense to bug people until you get an answer. Now we can request money for Christmas to put towards these ponies.

You can find Sunlight, at least, at Cotton On's Australian website right now...

https://cottonon.com/AU/my-little-pony-35th-anniversary-rainbow-toy/790448-01.html

Half-price, too! No idea how long she'll be in stock for, though. The Retro ponies sold out in-store (at Cotton On) very quickly, I'm told!

I have the rainbow ponies from Cotton On but I wanted the other ones as well. And if you read further up then you’ll know that Cotton On had no plans on getting any of the others currently out in America, which sucked.

I now wish I had waited for sales to get them but I was too impatient.
