I'm very confused and I hope the person on Tumblr tells us if it's a joke or not soon.
Was MLP even featured in Stranger Things?

I saw it on tumblr just now, too!
The colour scheme is super cool but I just...what? It's so weird and unexpected lol...to the point where even if it is real, it seems hard to believe  :blink:

Hopefully a comic con exclusive this year. I mean the timing’s almost right for a reveal

I read the post that they said they found it on Ebay and that it should be in target soon.
I doubt that will happen to be honest but interesting find, but it's still an odd thing...

Now I can see that happening :P

I'm very skeptical. She's pretty though.

ohhhhh, that makes sense! and seems more likely than them being regular ones you can find in the shops. how big is the "people who watch stranger things and also collect my little ponies" demographic anyway?
I would imagine that people are more likely to keep cc exclusives MIB, so that might be why they chose the upside-down packaging? I really like it but if you're going to debox your pony you can't enjoy it for very long.

Could you link me? I can't find it :-(

But also:

How many people watch stranger things that would also buy a MLP. (They don't have to be collectors).

And

How many people who collect MLP would want a strange looking Applejack. (Don't need to see the show to want a pony)

Also, she can be enjoyed outside the box. Her apples are upside down.

tumblr post says it'll be at target.

Also,
Since the auction is OVER:

Does anyone recognize the quote on the side of the box?  Dustin is the gap-toothed kid and Erica is the sister of another kid.  I did read that Erica would play a bigger role in the third season.  I hope this is real, this looks awesome.  The only problem will be deciding whether to display it in the box or take it out.  Uh oh, I might need TWO . . .

I've never seen Stranger Things (I don't have Netflix) but I'll probably pick this up if she's real... I like differently colored ponies.

personally i never get merch for things i'm not familiar with even if it's a crossover with something i do like.  i guess i forgot that not everyone's like me  :biggrin:

i spotted the apples! still, if i had her, i'd be really reluctant to take her out of her box because you don't get that many upside down ponies. and it takes a lot to make me not unbox a brand new pony.
