Sister and I were heading through Birmingham nst earlier and on a whim went into John Lewis.

We both didn't expect ponies.

We were wrong.

They had 2 tickles, a confetti and a trickles. They now don't :D

Uk people keep an eye on john lewis. It seems like rainbow shipments may already be changing.

..The box art on the back is interesting and seems to have abandoned the idea of showing them in their poses??

I am pretty sure these are US imports but there is a K'NEX UK label stuck on the bottom xD. Maybe this will also mean them showing up in Europe too soon?

Think the receipt code is the same as set 1. Price was too.

They are here!!

Edit to add: Till receipt code says S 78522002 Character Toy. I have no idea if that means anything to anyone, but that's what it says. I can't remember what the last set were or if that is the same code.

If it is any consolation these are not in either her or my local jl yet. And we only went in the one at new st on a whim...

I suspect they just get orders of rainbows so we may see a mix of set 1 and 2 for a bit. We didn't see Flutterbye but I assume we will have her as well. But no unicorns yet of course.

Yay for Norway!

And Taffeta, you MUST capture the moment when you find Medley here - take photos of the store shelving when you do! You have talked about it for so long, it will be worth the effort!  :lol: :P

Amazing news, Taffeta!!  How exciting!

In the 80s this was actually a set of 10 ponies, with four add-ons from the previous year like Parasol, Starshine etc.  I wonder if that is related to them deciding not to use the old box art this time?  Like maybe they couldn't crop out the 'extra' Rainbow ponies without it looking awkward?  I dunno, just spitballing.

@LM now you mention it that is true. There are ten on the cards I have for that set. Maybe that is the reason. Or maybe it is to make sure Starflower has the right symbol...

It does look like it is based on something though...real poses but not their poses??
