Target exclusives do show up in the UK sometimes, usually as an exclusive to another store - but this is sort of a niche thing so I could totally see them having troubles finding an international buyer.

I asked Basic Fun and they said the WORLDWIDE release date will be July 4th, the same date the third season will be on air. I have hopes that as it's merch from a big series like ST it will pop up in places like Fnac, Forbidden Planet and such. I will not buy anything from eBay until I'm 100% sure that it won't be around. And Amazon will sell it too eventually, at a more decent price. ^^

It's really disappointing to hear that only Target chose to carry Applejack after all. :( I guess I can understand if American '80s nostalgia isn't exactly a sure bet overseas, but I thought a pop-culture store like Think Geek or FYE might pick her up for the US market too. I hope that Targets get another case in later, or ST AJ is going to be a very limited release indeed. :(

The map inside the backpack is interesting. I wonder if those are schematics to the Starcourt Mall? I don't think I'd buy it for myself, but I'm definitely going to try to see it in person. I'm getting pretty hyped for S3 to drop! :lol:

^ link for the backpack. I'm a bit sad it's 16inch. It's too big for my kiddo. T_T;

Too bad it isn’t available in multiple sizes. :shrug:

Still... This makes it the perfect size for my geeky adult self. XD

Found her at the Cleveland West Target today! An employee had to get her out of the stockroom for me.

If that backpack had different art I’d buy it. The art isn’t my thing per say but it’s ST. I curse the merch tie ins. :lol: My Target just started stocking the section. Am going this week and I’ll report back.

Thank you for the screenshot and information, Moonbreeze! It makes me sad that there is such an imbalance with how the ponies are being distributed. It eats up so much of my budget having to buy them from overseas. Hey, Basic Fun, that means I would buy more of your products if I could get them directly here! :D
Specifically looking for G1 with pen markings similar to this (my initials - W.S.):

Yeah, that's disappointing.

I relayed that information to my sister and she (although right now she is MEANT to be at work) emailed me back within seconds asking if there's anyone here who can help her get one at cost plus shipping to the UK.

I realise US people are already being burdened with a lot of requests and are also fighting scalpers, but if there's anyone who can help please PM me. I would quite like one too but if I can only get one, Naynie is the ST fan so at the very least I'd like to be able to obtain one for her if possible.

(It would be well loved xD)

I don't actually see why it would be a risky object over here as ST is very popular in the UK BUT it is also true that Naynie had to pay through the nose to get the US release of the series as they aren't available here so maybe it's connected to that. I would've thought FP would have had them though. Maybe they tried the wrong places.

Stranger Things is a live-action series streaming on Netflix. It takes place in the 80s and is full of constant 80s nostalgia. The overall genre is sci-fi/adventure, and the tone harkens back to classic films like E.T., The Goonies, and Close Encounters. Season 3 will be released on July 4th. It’s a fantastic show with a large and passionate fanbase—very worth watching! :)

We have good reason to believe that the character Erika will be an MLP fan, as she has been confirmed to wear a vintage MLP backpack in Season 3. :) The pony itself will likely be an ordinary G1 Applejack toy that becomes affected by supernatural phenomena (I’ll keep it vague to avoid spoilers, since you haven’t seen the show).

Tried a target in Wisconsin and no luck.  I guess they sold out on the day they came out.  Has anyone asked to have one held for them when new stock comes in?  Has it worked?

I am drooling over all the photos coming in - she is AMAZING! Do you think she will actually star in the show though? I wasn’t even considering that! That would be cool :biggrin:

That would be awesome.  Maybe one of the characters will have it as a toy.

My guess is one of the characters in the season is into ponies.  Maybe her AJ looks like ST AJ in the Upside down...

I guess we'll all find out in a couple of days!  I can't wait for the series to premier-  there are actually a bunch of shows I'm super excited about ...
