UPDATE: Check out the back of this Funko Pop figure: https://www.hottopic.com/product/funko-stranger-things-pop-television-erica-vinyl-figure/11776584.html

This version of her backpack looks like the Eyelash Princess one in color and design... but features a rather generic (albeit Applejack-colored) horse on the back. XD Seems Funko wanted to avoid royalties, lol.

This was also posted in the comments about the backpack on Facebook.  Looks like an attempt was made to find a more time accurate prop.   I’m guessing they were either unable to find someone who had one and was willing to lend/sell it or was unable to find one that looked like it was relatively new and not 30+ years old.  Those older backpacks do look like they wouldn’t hold up very well.

Now it’ll be interesting to see if a bracelet or watch shows up.

*edit*

It was also pointed out that if you look very carefully at this poster, you can see Erica wearing what looks like this backpack.

Wow. I can’t believe it was that hard to find an older MLP backpack in good shape. :blink: Well, kudos to them for trying. The anachronism will bother me significantly less, now. XD

I hadn’t seen that poster! Thanks for sharing! :) Man, I’m so excited for season 3! I love that Netflix releases the episodes when it’s seasonally appropriate—looks like they’re celebrating the 4th of July!

I might have overlooked it int this thread,  but does anyone have the DCPI number for the Stranger Things Applejack pony?

Just a note about the backpack, I can 100% confirm that it was released in America. I had one that I believe was bought in 1991 at Kay Bee Toys that I carried with me to kindergarten. Still have it today. The front compartment held a plain soft lunch bag (it was so disappointing the lunch bag was so bland compared to the bag itself). I blame this backpack for my love of the eyelash princess ponies. ;D

Here it is 323-01-2761

I noticed today that a handful of stores in my area are now showing "In Stock" they must have been delivered last night/this morning. I would assume they be putting out the Stranger Thing merch before the July 4th premier to build hype?

Brickseek says that my Target now has them stocked so I went first thing this morning.  I asked an associate and she told me they are street dated for June 30th.

Well, that makes a certain amount of sense.  They will already be paying royalties to Netflix.  Why would they also want to pay royalties to Hasbro for something that can’t even be seen when packaged?

Got her!!   :frolic:  After literally going this morning and asking someone about her and being told she would be put out June 30th, they then went ahead and put her out.  A friend happened to be there when they where unboxing and putting them out and she picked one up for me!  So I’ll be working on a review video and will have it up Friday or sooner.  I bought an extra to do a giveaway so make sure you check it out :D
