I'll be too busy to see the reset in action so let's hope they restock everything along with moving stuff around!
I can't wait to see the G4 shelf scrunched even more.  :P

I was wondering what was going on. The only ones I've seen (aside from Stranger Things Apple Jack, which was with other ST merchandise) were at one Target in town and they were not in marked spots on the shelves, but were just kind of randomly placed on an end facing the back wall. It certainly gave me a large impression of "We're closing these out entirely.".

EDIT: I fixed a strange embarrassing error in what I called "Stranger Things".  :blush:

Well potentially a bit of good news for the UK. Argos appears to have picked up the unipegs. They're not on the website but their picture appears in the autumn/winter catalogue.

My localish Toymaster doesn't have them nor do they appear to be restocking the Rainbows. :(

That's interesting. Not wholly surprising, either, since they had the collector ponies. Stores seem to be doing either the collector/classic/unipeg type stuff or the rainbow line. I think they did say rainbows would be in fewer stores here, so I guess the unipegs were more popular at the toy fair. They have a lower price point and also they're, well, a set with four unicorns in...so I guess it was a winner...?

Good to know though :)
They are still on Smyths' website but still showing as out of stock...

Minor news, but popping this in here so everyone has a chance to see it: https://www.instagram.com/p/B0eFd7KAXiL/

So it would appear that Basic Fun has semi-officially nixed the Lemondrop parlour v.2, and instead they're hoping to offer up "something great" for next year. Hmmmm....

And something new for Target around October, maybe a for-real-on-purpose exclusive? I'm going to have to start hoarding little boxes again. ;)

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!

They did a major refurb of my local Target and moved everything around. I don't see the retro endcap anymore.

It's time for the fall toy reset so that's why things are empty and being moved.

It might also lead to the first sightings of Pinwheel and Starflower.  Seems likely they will reach the US first...

I haven't even seen Confetti & friends in real life yet! :(
I'm in the US btw.

Ugh, more Target exclusives, sigh. How to really annoy international collectors...

I guess we'll see if this one travels. G4 ones generally do, but this isn't Hasbro so who knows. It also depends what it is though...

I think that Confetti's set are meant officially to be coming out over the summer. But they have shipped early to some places. In any case we were told earlier in the year that it would be June/July but some might appear sooner. As it turned out we had them in the UK in mid-march - but not in all areas.

In any case, the UK have done all the stuff backwards and operate a 'rainbows first' policy. We've not had Bow Tie's set and we only just got the unipeg set this month - but we've had the y3 Rainbows for months. My JL is actually breeding Tickle, because the moment they sell one, more appear. Just Tickle, note. I haven't seen Trickles or Flutterbye in store for ages and there's only one Confetti now, out of three that were on shelf last week. In any case I keep checking in case the missing unicorns show up before I move, but I am not too hopeful.

I would expect the y3 rainbows to be more widespread stateside now. You guys get ponies in the more logical release order. We had the first scented rainbows before the collector ponies and now the y3 ones before the unipegs...but normal release order should have the y3 rainbows on shelves about now...

If it means next autumn as in 2020, it also suggests we can look forward to another year of BF ponies. But it also might be the grand finale. It will be sad if LD herself doesn't come out - I wouldn't mind betting she could be the Target exclusive as a pony on her own, but we'll see...

Curious to see what they've got, but I wish they'd branch out to other stores.

What if the exclusive is a big multipack of Flutter Ponies? Stores, including Target, tend to have big multi packs during fall/winter to capitalize one the holiday season.

I’d love to see flutter ponies. :) I’ve seen a lot of Applejacks and Bubbles but no sign of Confetti’s set at my Target.

That'd be awesome! Wouldn't it be great if we could get the unmade Flutter Hideaway too? :inlove:

Oh, that could be it. If it's just a bundle pack of ponies that could be bought singly, then I doubt there will be much demand from non-US collectors.

Well, don’t believe the excludive may be a Flutter set, since Basic Fun seems to have scrapped them as well as the Lemon Drop set  :cry:

Not MLP, but I spotted a new Basic Fun toy on the retro end cap today:
