I found the uni pegs today in Toymaster!

UK people, if you have a Toymaster branch near you it's worth checking it. They had all of them except Twilight, and from the fact they had multiples of some, I guess they had had 2 sets out.

When I got there they had 2x Medley, 2x Glory, 2x Moondancer, 1x Sunbeam and 1x Firefly.

Obligatory shelf photo for Glitterball as promised xD Even though you found her already.

So it seems like Twilight may be the elusive one to find here...pink plus unicorn??

Thank you! Very! I wasn't going to buy all of them but you know I ended up doing just that xD. I actually like Firefly more than I expected to. Now I just have to work out who to debox first o.O.

Yay  :cheer: :green: :hearts: :party: so pleased they have reached you!

I have Twilight, (actually, she was deboxed by my kid, she was a gift to her) but maybe I was lucky with my early-bird purchase! 

Doesn't it feel good finding them here, eh?  :biggrin:

Yes, it does! Even if you did find them first >.> xD.

I didn't really expect it and there were so many reasons I nearly didn't get to that store today since it's not entirely local to where I am. But I guess it was fate..?

I dunno if Twilight is going to be more sought after or if it was just that someone had bought the two on shelf in that store. I am not really worried about finding her, she's a pony I like a lot as an adult but as a kid she was overshadowed for me by Glory and Medley (even though I did like her mysterious mist thing).

Firefly is the surprise for me. I didn't expect to buy her, but actually I like the shade of pink they've used. Possibly better than the original. Am I allowed to say that? XD But Firefly has never been a favourite of mine...so...?

BlushingBlue, they're all beautiful! Thanks for sharing  :lovey:


If you want one, why not just buy a vintage castle on ebay for about $60?  Would a repro be better than the original ?  Would you really want two ?

I have an original Dream Castle and I'm not going to lie, I'd buy a repro too, lol. I think you're right though, it would be way to expensive to reproduce. And display space is an issue.
-------

Congrats Taffeta! Glad they're making their way over there.

-------

So I stopped by EB Games yesterday to see if there was any chance they would be getting ST AJ. She checked the computer for me and there's no sign of ST SJ or any more waves of the regular line  :(  It's possible that they're just very behind but they haven't had any ponies since the first set so looks like they're not getting anymore. I feel like TRU is our only hope but they're so behind too and not much of anything has shown up in stores.

I’m so happy for you Taffeta! I’m sure Twilight will turn up too.

Yeah, I hope so. Now my degree is done, I have to move out of my accommodation at the end of August (this region is really good for retros :'( so maybe I'll find her before then. Although I really don't need to add to the stuff I need to move as I already have too much and no idea yet where it has to go to...

I don't really know what my JL is doing though. Last week they had Tickle. Just Tickle. x3. I know she comes 2 to a pack, but today they had Tickle and Confetti. x3. Again, Confetti is 2 to a box but the last time I asked them about retro ponies they didn't have three Confettis. So the question is, who is buying up all the Flutterbyes and Trickles?

Not that I will ever get bored of seeing Tickle in stores.

My Target had no Basic Fun ponies today, just the Pretty Parlor/Peachy set on clearance.

I was at mine yesterday and it had none of the new ponies. It just had the 5 pack of the first set of Rainbows and the Pretty Parlour. The Pretty Parlour was new to my area today though. It still hadn’t arrived as of last week. I expect we’ll be the last to get the new ponies too, if they ever make it to Canada.

Does anyone have photos of "nightlight bowtie" next to a "standard" one? Is the color highly varied?
