It's been varying for a while now, but the most common price range I've seen recently is $200-350 USD

i sold one for about $400 back in April. I really want another one though. Maybe a Basic Fun. I'll be less tempted to sell. :)

Sold listings from October 1st - today show her selling for $300 - $450 range.

It'll be super entertaining when she's released by BF. :lol:

Yeah, actually the reason I was asking is I was thinking of trying to get a crowdfunding thing going on my blog to purchase a Mimic and send it to Basic Fun, as I'm worried her price on eBay will result in them skipping her.

My worry is, with four ponies per Basic Fun set, and 11 Twinkle Eyes they have yet to produce, it would be easy for them to pass over Mimic and choose a cheaper pony.  Basic Fun buys the vintage version of each pony they make, to color-match the hair and bodies.  (Sometimes the photos on the side of the Basic Fun boxes are actually vintage ponies.) And they went through some tough times with Covid, had to lay off some employees to stay afloat.

I'm also thinking of starting a letter campaign--to Basic Fun, to encourage them to make Mimic, and to Target, to try to get them to stock BF ponies again.  I'll keep you guys updated, I have to organize, lol!

That pose is so difficult too. Is it just her and TAF Twilight?

I thought Basic Fun had been bought by Hasbro. In which case, would they still need to source a pony to copy? Wouldn’t they have access to all the archives and molds?

On PC. I just paid €350 for one in good condition with original comb and ribbon. And yes, I’m now on a pony ban   :blink:

Basic Fun is its own company, they just have the license to make retro ponies.  Hasbro provides them with artwork, but Hasbro didn't keep copies of all the toys they ever made. They probably have a handful of ponies kicking around, but no pony library. (Hasbro didn't even keep the molds!  Which is wild to me.)

Yeah, in the US there aren't a lot of ponies in that mold.  Mimic, Milky Way, Princess Sparkle are the ones I can think of.  But if they get a pony they can reverse engineer the mold.

Ooooo, congrats on your Mimic, ScotchHop!

It's a really good idea.  I don't know if I would send them Mimic unless they could promise to make her.  But, I really, really hope they do.

The problem with her high price is that it once someone buys it for a certain amount, they'll be very reluctant to ever sell her for less.  I can't believe there are 9 of her for sale right now on Ebay.  Wow.

yeah i think that contributes to driving up the price. i was definitely guilty of buying one at a higher price in 2020. but selling again later because i had overspent on ponies. i guess it's just good old market forces. i don't love it. i just feel put off from buying stuff in general lately.
