Well, you know. Overheads and all. These are hard economic times. ;) Especially when you haven't had a proper publicity profile in three decades or so...

I'm so happy about Luna.
Ugh WHY do they have to put her in a pack like that? How much do those sets normally retail for?

looks like they did mold swaps for the winged ponies and a new-ish pose for earth/unicorn?

I wonder if they will add some 'shimmer' to the wings?

We don't know yet, it was posted in the 35th anniversary thread that they will only be produced if retailers pick them up.

Ugh WHY do they have to put her in a pack like that? How much do those sets normally retail for?

The TRU 12-pack for the Movie was $60, so $5 per pony (same price as a single pony). This set has 10 ponies plus Spike. Though, Celestia, Luna, and Cadance are a bit bigger than normal ponies, so I think even though it's less figures (11) compared to the TRU set, I think the price will probably be $60 for this as well.

Wow, I think this is the first time in a LONG time I want another mane six pony. That Rarity looks great! They finally started printing her and Twilight's eyes in a way that doesn't look weird, too.

But that Rainbow Dash has incorrect wings, those are from Twilight, are bigger princess wings, do anyone at Hasbro cares about continuity and character designs?

But that's the problem as well. Flutters are a risky choice of retro because getting the wings so they don't break but don't disappoint is going to be a challenge.

I am also concerned about whether they will have the right sparkle. There is an irridescence to the original wings which, as I mentioned before, is easily dulled by layers of dust, discolouration...and perhaps overly thick reproduction :/ While I absolutely accept the flutters could not be rereleased with wings as flimsy as those we grew up with, I would still rather they didn't make the set than compromised on the delicacy and beauty of the set's main feature.

How you do that I don't know, I'm not the manufacturer. I just think it's a gamble.
