What countries does "worldwide" include? I haven't seen any of the repros in stores here even tho Germany was supposed to get them. So distribution seems to be real spotty for the Basic Fun stuff.

I am looking for them right now, so it would be nice if I could get an official source for the worldwide release? If the info is in the thread somewhere I missed it/ can't find it.

Should you find out where they are sold here, please let me know, as I am wondering myself!

There are no actual big toy stores where I am, at least I don't know any since Toys R Us closed down. There is a Müller close-ish that has quite a big toy area, but they aren't stocked well on MLP, and I haven't seen any of the reproductions there, so I doubt they will get her or the bag. Amazon is just sad with their repro stock. I'm in the Netherlands on a regular basis, but both toy stores in the city I travel to have closed down so other than online, I don't have anywhere to buy my pony stuff.

I've contacted EMP since they have lots of merch, but they did not list her or the bag in ST merch they will be offering with the start of S3.

That's so annoying, really. We're in the middle of Europe here but MLP stuff wise it feels like we're at the end of the world.

My friend and I are getting her from lovely Arena member Shatyr now, it was just too big of a risk to wait until Stranger Things 3 would drop and drive all scalpers to the stores to get her.

I agree, Germany has been getting less pony merch than expected in recent years. We might not be ponyland anymore. And to think we got German exclusives back in the day, ha! But demographics change.
EMP not stocking her is ridiculous, tho.

I will keep my eyes open. TRU is KB Toys now but even back when TRU still existed we never saw a lot of MLP. We went to a giant TRU in 2016 but the pony section was just one tiny display. We had to get our pearly ponies from Action market of all places :lol:
How much shipping cost for your AJs Zapper? I just saw this girl and she looks gorgeous, I love her colours! But I have doubts about her showing up in Hungary (the repros never did either), and I don't really have abroad plans for the next couple  of months, so I'm thinking of ordering her online.

Congratulations! Where was she in the store? My Target has its own ST's merch section by the DVDs and books. Sharing space with Funkos etc.

She was still in the back but I remember reading that she should be with the other ST stuff. I asked a guy at the electronics department (which is the department with that display) about her and he got her from the back for me since she hadn't been put out yet! Today seemed to have been her release date where I live. She wasn't out yet because I went to Target pretty early, shortly before 8 am. :P

I don't know anything about stranger things, but she's super cool!

She is super pretty! Just the right amount of strange to make me love her :heart:

I am still worried she will be an Exclusive to US. Anyone outside of the US who found her yet?

 I contacted basicfun and they said As of right now, they are a retailer exclusive at Target, so they will only be available at Target in the US and only for a limited time.

I also called my local target and they said they were setting set up for it and to call back to on 28 or 29

Aaand my worries are confirmed! Thank you for the info though- I guess it will be an insane amount on eBay if I ever get her :blink:

I’m near the mentor and willoughby targets.

I'm in the same area. As of Tuesday I hadn't seen them. I'll be on the west side this weekend. Already let my boyfriend know we're going pony hunting. :biggrin:

I’ve picked up three but have had to have them all pulled from the back even with the shelves stocked with stranger things stuff. I know my store has some more but hate to get them all even though I was picking them up to send here or there if people needed them. I kinda live in a small town and I swear there are no collectors here. I haven’t deboxed my own yet I’m not sure if I want to do it.

I found ST Applejack today in NJ. I’m so excited because my Target hasn’t gotten the send set of rainbows yet so I figured they wouldn’t have it.
