how big is the "people who watch stranger things and also collect my little ponies" demographic anyway?
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.

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.

I have never seen the show -- and it's nothing I would ever watch. The pony doesn't really have anything on her that reeks "merch" to me besides her packaging. She looks like a strange colored Applejack (not much different then nirvanas or errors-- except she's not).

It's not really hard to put an upside down pony in a box. You just flip the insert packaging.

I love it! I don’t /think/ MLP has ever made an appearance in Stranger Things, but the new season comes out this July, so... :biggrin:

I will buy this in a heartbeat (if it’s legit). XD Any chance she could be removed from the box, then slid back in for display (like a Funko Pop!)?

oooookay? i personally want her because she's a weird applejack and i don't really care about the ST branding even though i have seen it. but it says stranger things on the packaging so she's stranger things merch as far as i'm concerned, and remains so even w/o her packaging. however i'm sure other people would feel differently about the extent to which she counts as stranger things merch, as you have demonstrated.

she's still great and i would like to have her. i would remain reluctant to unbox her if she was a comic con exclusive but it looks like she's not so i'd totally unbox her.

:blink: ... Huh!

If she comes to Target, I'll definitely seek her out, being upside down and blue and all.

Erica is Lucas's sister, and she is going to play a bigger part in season 3, so I wonder if she will have ponies and the quote on the box unintentionally gave a tiny spoiler? If it's even real.

Stranger Things is crazy popular, I don't think the toy has to appeal to people who haven't seen the show to be monetarily worth it.  That said, even if I hadn't seen the show I would pick up this Applejack, I love how different and weird she is.

She could also be a SDCC exclusive or something.

I was wondering the same thing!

I think this is a well made hoax or something personally.  It just seems too weird to be real.

I really hope this is real and will be sold at Target! I love her unique colors!

I've only seen season 1 of Stranger Things, it's a great show. But I'd buy this even without the tie in, I think a lot of people will buy them even if they don't like mlp particularly. I want two: one for unboxing and the other in the box

I’d be inclined to agree, but... It’s just such a WEIRD hoax, if it is. Like, I’d imagine a hoax would have the pony be half-demogorgon, or something. This seems like just the right level of weird to real.

Or maybe I’m just weird. XD

Also, this wouldn’t be the first Hasbro/Stranger Things crossover... They made a themed Monopoly game before, and probably other merch I’m not remembering.

If she is at Target, I will totally get her! I love her colors.  I’ve never seen ST though.
