I get so excited seeing the y3 rainbows in the little toy shops around here on vacation. I was going up pick up another Tickle but not for $15... I'll be waiting to stumble across her at Target.  :P

I *think* that the ST AJ ponies a kind person here picked up for us mayy be at the post depot local to my parents as I just had a text from my Mum to say they'd had a custom notification. Hopefully they can go get it for me so it will be waiting for Naynie when she goes home in a week or two (she has to have a  root canal so ponies will cheer her up!) xd.

That was sweet of her :D Pony memories like that are awesome :D

I found Twilight today :D so I have the unipeg set now :D I have deboxed all but Glory so far but given that I have to move soon I may end up deboxing her and getting another MIB one later...depends on how much space I have to pack.

In any case, UK people, the two stores I found these in down here were both Toymaster stores under the franchise name of Toy Barnhaus, if it's helpful at all to anyone.

And for anyone in the Southeastish area, I found them in Toymaster stores in Sutton and Epsom. And Epsom still has a lot left on the shelf as of this morning, so I think they were new out. My parents are down for the weekend so we took a trip and by coincidence happened to stumble on them there.

I haven't seen these in JL or anywhere else yet, or in any other Toymaster chain stores - but my JL still has Tickle and Confetti.

I'm on holiday in Finland now and apparently they only have four of the ponies for sale here; Bubbles, Seashell, Applejack and Bowtie. It was very nice to see them live, Germany never got any at all!

Random thought:  How cool would it be if Basic Fun was able to attend the Pony Fair in the future?  The Pony Fair is usually in Florida and they are also located in Florida. :)  Maybe they would see a pony in person that would inspire them.

Congrats on finding the unicorn / pegasus set, Taffeta!  I know it's been a long search!

I'm honestly surprised they arent attending this year. I'm sure they know that the collectors have fully embraced their products, so why not? It would be so amazing to meet them face to face and get more insight into how they got to this point and what their future goals are. Heck, a Basic Fun panel would be pretty interesting.

Thank you!

And as for the fair, did anyone actually invite them? Being that the fair is no longer connected to Hasbro (as far as I know), they might not even know about it...?

Not sure if they were invited, but they did donate a SDCC Majesty and I think the Twilight / Twilight Sparkle set to the fair (for a raffle I believe), which was nice of them and shows they're aware of it.

That said, two conventions within two weeks might be too much even if they were invited. Especially in the middle of summer when people like to plan vacations.  (Real vacations, not working vacations, ha ha.)

All 5 of the targets by me have cleared the retro shelves and no longer have the basic fun ponies! Is anyone else experiencing this?! I still need tickle and flutterbye! And just last week I saw a non scented moonstone, but now the shelves do not even have the upc tags! I hope the line isn’t ending. I wanted pinwheel and starflower, and many more!
