I called my Target this morning- and had a guy look through the back and he even agreed to look through the "pallet" of toys about to be stocked- but he couldn't find the pony.

He also noted that the product states that it is not to be moved to the floor until June 23rd or something so he thinks that is why they can't be found.

Guess I'll try back (weird he said the 23rd though when others said June 30th)

At any rate, it seems the only ponies being found are those that the stores should never have put out in the first place-

I will try and wait patiently for the official release date- and then look again.

The Target I went to yesterday said the 23rd, too. Might be a region thing? Since we both live in Washington.

Ditto for the 23rd in WA. It'll be interesting to see if any are left to put out by then though. XD I'll be checking back on the 23rd for sure, but my area might have to wait until they get another shipment at the rate these ponies are going.

That said, my offer still stands for anyone else who wants me to try to pick one up for them! ;) I can't promise success, but I'm happy to make the attempt.

Strange! Maybe ill try my locals again tomorrow.

Wouldn't mind one of these. Applejack's still my favorite pony from any generation. Nearest Targets are 70ish miles east of me, I don't see myself going to that area anytime soon. Would it be better to make a post in the Wanted forum? Or is this a hint enough...

^^ You probably will want to make a post, just so it doesn't get lost in the shuffle in this thread.

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.

@Zapper.


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. ^^

Thanks, Taff. Still... this very vague. Now I am a little unsure if I should wait or not.

You still could think of her as a new character! XD Like... Applejack’s terrifying, Upside-Down counterpart (a Demo-Applejack?).
Jackapple?  :lol:

We were having a lot of fun with this at my house yesterday. XD Our favorites:

Shadowjack
Blackjack
Applebarb :lol:
Apple-Upside-Down-Cake
Kajelpa (Applejack backward)
El Packaj (Jackapple backward, quite fitting when packing up extras for shipping!)

Thanks, Taff. Still... this very vague. Now I am a little unsure if I should wait or not.

I know what you mean. It's like, somewhere on the globe they will be available. But where? Who knows.

I have some faint hope they will get to stores here eventually, probably FP but they don't know anything about it yet...just because those stories had some of the special G3 ponies years back, ST is popular there, and most importantly Basic Fun have a supplier here which is happily churning out retros to stores generally, so it wouldn't be too hard. But knowing for sure is difficult. Especially since it doesn't seem obvious what other kinds of stores here might have them. It doesn't seem like something that's going to show in the regular toy aisle, but then again...?

The loose pictures have made me more interested in obtaining one as well, but I'll see. I think my sister is serious about obtaining one but hasn't asked me to ask anyone here for help yet so I think she's hoping it will show up in UK stores as well. Or, best option, on Amazon UK. All the retros available here so far are there either in stock or on preorder so that's a possibility.

If AJ was Japanese, she'd probably be Ura-apple. Or Ura-ringo. Or Urarin. Which sounds like a cute name for a magical girl character.

Personally I like Shadowjack :)

I was across the state today with friends, and we found them! I’m so in love with her! I need to buy another to keep loose, I’m just gonna wait a bit so that others can get her before I buy my second one!

Also I’m calling her applebarb from now on! :lol:

I got impatient and asked a target employee if she was available in the back. She was, so I got one! :) She is so neat, I think I want two, to keep one in the box and one to keep out of the box as well. She is definitely coming work with me around Halloween to be my seasonal desk pony. :lol:

I also decided to give Stranger Things another try because of all of this and it’s actually pretty good! I must have just been in the wrong mood when I first tried to watch it. :P I won’t be caught up for season 3 for a while, but I’m excited to see what kind of role My Little Pony may play!

Don't you guys think she'd make a great mommy for HQG1C Batty-Boo?
