I was lucky enough to find 5 of the 6 in one go, we had gone into our local "The Entertainer" and the staff there were so helpful, they didn't have any in themselves but they located the nearest store that had 5 in and even rang them up and asked them to save them for us!!!  I bought the last one on Ebay :)

Was that the original Collector pony six or a different set?
Entertainer here hasn't had any ponies for a while but they're meant to get the parlour I think...?


The original 6 - It was just after Christmas though as they are what I spent my Christmas and Birthday money on!   

Awesome to pick so many up in one fell swoop! I find Entertainer staff are usually quite helpful :D

Hopefully we'll keep getting ponies there too as the next sets come out.

Yes :) And her colours are softer in person than most internet photos, very close to the original.

I may weep with joy if they make Flutter Pony repros. *o*

Okay, sorry if this point has been talked to death, but... I have a rather large herd at this point, and display space is becoming an issue. From a collector perspective, is it worth owning both the original, vintage ponies and their repros? Are there any striking differences?

Certain repros have some striking differences, while others are somewhat minimal.
The Collectors pose Cotton Candy has a different shade of pink hair to the original, same with Snuzzle.
The year 2 rainbows have some brighter colors than the originals, but the scented ones may discolor so be careful.
The unipegs are fairly similar to their originals but the hair stripe on the unicorns is blended in rather than a seperate row of plugs.
The Bow Tie from the earth pony set is a deeper blue like Nightlight.
The year 3 rainbows? Well...no brown spots!!
The white ponies are strikingly white. If space is an issue I suppose you could pick and choose!

...But oh no! The scented ones discolor? :( What a shame, that was a selling point for me... By discolor, what do you mean exactly? Uniformly? Or something regrind-esque? (Again, sorry if this has been discussed before!)

They turn a bit yellow... pictures I've seen it's pretty uniform, maybe the head could be a different colour than the body in worst cases?

On the topic of repro differences, Peachy is totally different. She's orange with pale pink hair... paler than her original release!

I checked two Targets today and only found Pretty Parlors with Peachy and 3 Collector Ponies. :sad:


I'm starting to think that the Targets in my area won't stock the new ones.

Hmm... I can’t decide if that might be worth the risk or not. The unscented versions seem very hard to find, and I do like the idea of the scents... but on the other hand, I wonder if the yellowing will progressively worsen as years go by. :/ Decisions, decisions...

Anyway, thanks for all the info, guys! I think I’ll keep an eye out for these the next time I’m out shopping. :)
