The hardest to find from each set here is:
Collectors: Cotton Candy
Rainbows 1: Star Shine
Earth Ponies 1: Bubbles
Unicorns: All of them
Pegasus: All of them
Rainbows 2:  Everyone except Trickles and Pinwheel


I have only seen the Bubbles and AJ set in one region of the UK, but I saw her in three stores vs Seashell in 2 and the rest in only 1. I guess we have all the Bubbles.

So were they all on vacay or did they simply migrate?

I love the idea of them vacationing. <3

My Target had 3 Trickles left for the longest time.  Now they're down to one.  And I have to remind myself that I already have Trickles because I'm so tempted every time I see her.

Trickles and Flutterbye both disappeared here for a few months until Pinwheel came out, then I started finding them again, but for a while it was basically Confetti and the army of Tickle show.

The unipegs are quite easy to get here still probably more so than the rainbows as they're in more stores and on Amazon at retail prices..?

I think the Bubbles set is really new here so am expecting it to spread out more like the unipegs. Rainbows tend to come here first but only lodge in certain stores (mostly independent/toymasters and JL) whereas the others spread across the main toy stores like Entertainer and Smyths as well. (And Argos I think at Christmas?)

Smyths in Colney Hatch definitely had a lot of unipegs, some of which had the older 35th anniversary boxes and some which didn't. So it looks like the UK has had a fair share of older stock as well.

There are and have been literally no first set rainbows anywhere I've seen for over a year but I think some people in other regions have seen them. I've seen Collector Ponies still in the last year, and also now the 3 packs are all over, but the original Rainbows happened in summer 2018 and then that was it. Gone. Probably the scenting. We never had unscented ones here.

That AJ is so vivid. If those came here I might be tempted. I don't have g3 AJ.

You should get her. She's such a pretty and unusual pony.

Wow, how are these ponies going? I left the forum a while ago and I don't know which ones are available right now. I got Medley on a trip to London, that was incredible! I'd like to get Moonstone next, but I would like to know about all the ones that have been released so far  :)

Moonstone is pretty much no longer in stores in most places and hasn't been for ages (certainly in Europe). I know she still is on Amazon UK though, and maybe Amazon France?

Edit: Can't believe I totally missed the comments about Bubbles holidaying in the UK XD.

Oh yeah, I forgot about the G3 retros!

I really hope they release G3 Rarity, she's my favorite of the G3 unicorns.

I wish they'd release G3 properly.  Like they're doing for G1.

These are a bit old now (end of January) but from stores in the south east of the UK. Sadly I didn't get a photo of the only store that had Bow Tie and AJ because I was too excited to find Bow Tie >.>

This one is from a John Lewis. For some reason John Lewis ONLY have Firefly from the unipeg set and seem now to ONLY have Tickle from the Rainbow set.

The rest are from various toymaster stores:

(It's so weird how Moondancer has the 35th anniversary box and Glory doesn't. The Glory I bought from this store last summer does).

(Bubbles was also here but hiding behind Medley)

Gives a flavour of how the UK is looking atm. Smyths also still has unipegs.

Please note in that last photo how OLD some of those G4 things are. Yes that is Water Cutie Flower Wishes.

The pony shelves at my store are so barren with like maybe 3 tops. Lucky UKers.

Heads up to Northwest / Pacific Northwest U.S. folks that Bi-Mart carries them!

I swung by today to pick up some ice cream and ran across about fifteen 2ndn wave Rainbow ponies. Didn't see Starflower, but all the others were there.

What are my odds of finding unscented Rainbows in the U.S., at this point? I’d like to hold out hope, buuut...

On that note... I have a question for all the brilliant pony chemists out there. X3 Do you think that displaying scented Rainbows near other repro ponies could cause the discoloration issues to spread? Like, could a neighboring, unscented BF pony discolor because of the “fumes” given off by a scented one? I’m kind of scared to buy the scented ones for this reason...
