It's being DDOS by Bronies because of Comic Con. They're checking obsessively for Ditzy Doo. I hear they haven't put her up for sale on the site yet though.

Lol! Even when the Comic Con ponies dont have such an impressive potential market, Hasbrotoyshop always crashes around the end of Comic Con...its like a tradition!

Personally from what I have heard, I think I would be a little amazed if they have any to put up on the site...but you never know!

After going to the fair and asking a friend to buy on at comic con and still coming up empty hooved, I'm just going to throw in the white flag for now. U_U; But, the good thing is, after all of this, I feel Hasbro is starting to get the message to how popular she is. Maybe not to their target market, but she is quite certainly marketable.

The exhibit hall closes at 5pm on Sunday according to http://www.comic-con.org/ (http://www.comic-con.org/). Anyone know from past years when HasbroToyShop.com has had the SDCC pony up?

Is it true that :muffin: Pony sold out already at the Comic Con? If that's really the case then there won't be any to put on the site. This really sucks because I really want her but I can't afford to get one off of eBay, plus I don't have an eBay account anyway. Hasbro really screwed up with this. First they way underestimate the number of her they'd need at the fair, then the do the same thing at SDCC. I bet most of them are going to eBay scalpers. I hate that.

She sold out for "that day"...I believe she is back in stock for the next day. I would guess she will sell out each day she is available...so whether there is stock online will probably depend on if HB specifically decided to hold some stock  back.

I doubt they'll have any left over. I heard they only made 1,000 units of the Ditzy Doo toy. I am so mad at Hasbro right now for not meeting the demands of collectors because of how hyped she is.

I've been having horrible insomnia as of late, but it looks like this might be to my benefit for once. Might stalk the toy shop for a while!

Stupid question about the site: if I put an item in my cart, is it like putting it on hold? Because no one will be awake to give me a credit card number at 2 in the morning...

Post by: StarlightGaze on July 16, 2012, 03:15:55 AM
No idea if it's official. I looked at the MLP Facebook page and they kept saying they'll have some online, so maybe we do have another chance at her.

If they sold 500 per day as I thought they were then they'd have had to make at least 2000. Or was that just for Scarah Screams?

I'm on there waiting and hoping. I'm going to be super upset if they don't have :muffin: Pony on the site. It's the only chance I'll ever have to get her and because of the controversy, I doubt they'll ever make her as a normal brushable size release. I hope if they do add her to the site, they limit her to just one per address. That way it will stop people from buying tons only to turn around and sell her on eBay.

Oh, they did? I was worried there wouldn't be any left and didn't even know if she would actually show up or not. I really hope I'm not getting my hopes up for nothing. On a side note, I really hope they don't send me a factory error one like they did last year. By the time I got her, they were sold out, so I couldn't exchange her.

Last year they had the Comic Con pony already on the site ahead of time, just listed as "unavailable" or something similar until the Monday after SDCC. So with :muffin: Pony not even on the site at this point, I admit I am a little worried. I really hope I can get her. I even logged in ahead of time in case the site goes crazy slow like it did last year when I'm trying to order. I just don't really trust Hasbro's reps since they tend to lie.

Does anyone know how Hasbro handles shipping? Like, if I were to order 2 D e r p ys, one for myself and one to trade, would they charge double to ship? I just remember paying a ridiculous amount for shipping (I think around $8) last year and I don't want to pay double if I do end up picking up two. On the other hand, I'm going to likely be panicked and will likely try to make the transaction go through as quickly as possible because I know with a lot of sites, just because an item is in your cart, it doesn't mean it's yours because it can still sell out before the purchase is final. I've had this happen a few times and it's quite frustrating.

That was an hour ago actually. It's 9AM CDT at the moment.

Edit for Clarification:

It's 7PDT/8MDT/9CDT/10EDT

So 9 EDT was an hour ago, but it IS 7 PDT.

Yes, every year after Comic Con people flood the site to snag the Hasbro exclusives.  Usually the site crashes and goes up and down.  I think it's going to be even worse this year because of :muffin: Pony.

Yes, usually all the ComicCon stuff will go up at the same time. As others have said. Usually the site crashes because it can't handle the load from everyone since there are people buying the Transformers, LPS, etc exclusives all at the same time.

Years before, I wouldn't have worried about being right there when the pony went live. With her popularity though I'm sure this will be one of the few years the pony sells out ridiculously quick. From both Scalpers & Collectors trying to get her. Additionally, years past the limit was 4 per household. I wouldn't be surprised if this years limit was 2-3 as at the actual convention.

And as mentioned, sometimes it's Tuesday too. There's never been a real 'announcement' before. At least not that I recall from Hasbro.

Thanks for the clarification! Yeah, normally I'm not so "be there at the exact second", but at the rate she sold at the Con, I don't think she'll last on the site for very long.

I wonder if Ditzy Doo (I refuse to call her Ditzy-Doo, it doesn't sound right) will be easier to snag off eBay eventually. I told myself I wasn't going to get the styling-sized ponies, and I just won a custom regular-sized Ditzy Doo on eBay (she even has bangs, which is a plus for me over the official one). Idk, the SDCC one is starting to grow on me more...

I honestly can't remember. I believe they just show up on the Exclusive's page, but they might have had a ComicCon link on the first page in past years. Honestly, I didn't pay too much attention because I knew I'd have 24-48 hours to snag the pony.

From what I recall the pony IS in the MLP category too. It'll just be hard to make it through check-out if you're hoping for other exclusives. I don't think that putting and item in the cart 'holds' it on Hasbro. =/

Last year, the Con pony was in the MLP category, but that was months later. Not sure how it'll work.

Does Hasbro usually set up a page for their comic-con exclusives? Kind of like what Toys R Us had?

I honestly can't remember. I believe they just show up on the Exclusive's page, but they might have had a ComicCon link on the first page in past years. Honestly, I didn't pay too much attention because I knew I'd have 24-48 hours to snag the pony.

Hm, I figured as much. I thought Toys R Us' CC page was very convenient since you could grab everything on the same page and I was hoping Hasbro would do the same. I only remember the CC exclusive from last year and yeah, she was the first thing listed in the My Little Pony shop, but I never checked to see if they had a general CC page.

Thanks for the response!

There is no 100% confirmation on time Hasbro have never offered that they will just say "check periodically"...the time quoted earlier of 9am EST is just what has traditionally has been roughly when they show up but in all honesty it could be any time from 9am Monday onwards.

I cant promise it will work but I was told this code COMIC2012 at check out may get you 10% off - no guarantee it will work on all lines though :)

I heard there was a limit of three figures per customer at Comic Con, so I'm guessing the same applies. If stock is really limited, they may only allow one per customer. I know Zecora was one per customer, but that was through TRU's site.
Title: Re: Is hasbrotoyshop down for anyone else right now?
Post by: Flutterblossom on July 16, 2012, 03:22:34 PM
ok good. I was worried the limit would be one like on TRU's website. I am looking to buy 2 or 3 for myself and my sisters. Although one of my sisters already caved in and bought one off ebay... So 2 would be fine also.

Last year, the Comic-Con sale didn't start until the Tuesday after Comic-Con. I just double-checked my emails and I am certain of this fact. I did wait around all day Monday but nothing came out of it. So if you don't see anything come up today, don't panic.

The sale started around 12pm EDT (9am PDT). My son has preschool in the summer at 12:15pm and I was racing the clock (and ultimately failed) to get the exclusives because I had to get him to school.

If you want to save yourself some time (and a better chance of getting exclusives during the rush), log into your hasbrotoyshop account ahead of time. It's one less thing you'll need to fight on the server.

Hope this helps!

Well I know that I personally, will probably go out and about after lunch today. I figure if they aren't up by then, it will be later this week.

Mostly, I'm stalking to try and help out some fellow collectors. I was able to snag an Ebay one for a nice price so I'm not too concerned, but I know she's popular and I enjoy helping out my fellow pony people.

On the first part, I think only Hasbro knows that answer. And as for the filter, I have no idea why it's there, it wasn't always there. It's quite annoying as her name is clearly :muffin: Pony because it was said in the show which is about as official as you can get. Ditzy Doo, on the other hand, was never shown and is likely another pony.

No one knows yet. She sold very well at Comic-Con, a lot better than Hasbro was anticipating, I think. I have a feeling that supplies are going to be limited.

As for how many were made... I'm not sure if a number was ever given out. Maybe someone else has the answer to this.

I dont think anyone knows the figure for certain...it is "traditionally" around 1000 that Hasbro make.

They had 250 @ the Fair this year so if they went by this figure this would have left 750 for Comic Con and the site - lets hope they made more than normal. Good luck to everyone searching.

I hope it won't be too late. It's supposed to get up to around 100 today (Heat Advisory is in effect) and I'd much rather spend the afternoon in my bedroom with the AC on than be out in the living room where my computer is because it tends to get really hot. Our central air went out years ago and couldn't be fixed, so we just have window AC units in the bedrooms. Well, there is one in the living room, but it's a huge room so the small window AC unit doesn't do much when it gets really hot and humid.

See, two different ponies! I personally think they should change the filter. And the name :muffin: Pony is even canon.

Personally, I still call her Ditzy Doo because I think the name fits in better with the MLP universe. I also don't like internet memes. Also, I thought the scene where she's called :muffin: Pony had been altered?

And I would like to point out this thread is about those waiting for Hasbrotoyshop not another thread for discussion on the filter or the name of the "grey pegasus"

Good luck everyone waiting.

It's still slow for me.

I've been pointing out that Ditzy and :muffin: Pony aren't the same pony since the filter went active, but I guess no one cares. From the looks of it, Ditzy could easily be :muffin: Pony's sister, though. They look identical except for the hair color.
Title: Re: Is hasbrotoyshop down for anyone else right now?
Post by: Dragonflitter on July 17, 2012, 01:24:20 PM
There's no real proof that that's Ditzy Doo, though. Because the part where they mention the name of 'the pegasus that went north to get the southern birds' was a different scene than that one in the screenshot. Some other pegasus might have been sent to get the birds after Ditzy went wrong lol. People just assume those two ponies are one and the same, so they assume that's Ditzy.

And since the Hub recorded an alternate audio track for the scene with Derby in it, it can be argued that the Derby name isn't canon anymore.

Edit: Ooops hathor is right, this isn't the thread for this discussion! I'd hate for the thread to get locked and then we couldn't chat while we wait.

I don't mind calling her either name, but if the show animators put blonde hair on that pony, Ditzy Doo would be the official name. I think it was just an animator's mistake, they probably intended to put her there with blonde hair but for some reason chose purple.

I am very sorry if I made any of you mad.  :(

Good luck with Hasbro Toy Shop.  It gets really slow every year, what with everyone who collects any kind of Hasbro toy trying to get on there.   My computer kept freezing on the "credit card confirmation" part they year the red superhero SDCC pony came out.  I tried again and again, but I didn't get any confirmation notices or reach the "order confirmed!" page . . .

Then I was charged hundreds of dollars on my credit card and THIRTEEN red superponies arrived on my doorstep.

(Which was still less than a quarter of my attempts to order her--yes, the site was that bad and slow.)

I contacted Hasbro in a panic after I got the credit card bill and they told me I could return them if I wanted and they would pay shipping and refund me.  (I think customer service was secretly amused.)  But in the end I kept them all because it was just so neat seeing them all lined up.  They did send me the right amount of ponies for the charge, it was just that there were SO MANY of them, it added up.

I also paid a lot of shipping and handling because they sent each one of the thirteen ponies in its own box.  Ha ha, Hasbro!

I've given up on my pre-seller, as he remains unresponsive and has listed an "in hand" pony that is currently going for around $80.  I think I'm going to have to file an ebay claim against him.

Haha, yeah, I'm the same way.

I'm actually not a big fan of Ditzy. I collect art/con ponies so I want her for that reason alone, but I won't be too bummed if I don't get her. I was actually pretty disappointed that she wasn't an art pony. I don't mind that she's G4--a G4 art pony would be pretty cool!--but Ditzy isn't exactly... artistic. She was mostly a gift to the bronies/fans, which is great, but I would have liked for her to be a regular release instead and have Hasbro stick to the art ponies.

Well, I know it was a weekday because I was at work and had to order them on the sly, which only made it more frustrating when the order wouldn't go through!

*checks inbox*  Oh Yahoo Mail, I knew there was a reason I never, ever cleaned you out!  It looks like all my orders shipped on 8/1/07, and were ordered 7/30/07, which was a Monday, the Monday after the convention.

Yes, it's coming back to me now . . . It wasn't actually the credit card charge that tipped me off, it was getting thirteen "Your order has shipped!" emails at once.  (Me:  "WHAT.")

I went into my Gmail and found the receipt from last year's Comic Con pony order. I did the same thing that year, camping out and refreshing the page every 5 minutes, so I'm pretty sure the time on the email is approximately the time she showed up for sale. The date was 7/26/11, which was a Tuesday. I didn't really remember (though yesterday I had a feeling of deja vu) until now, but I waited all day Monday, only to have to do it again on Tuesday last year. The purchase time did surprise me, though. According to the receipt, I made the purchase at 2:18PM (Central time) that day. So we may still have several hours to wait.

haha, as frustrating as that must have been, it's a great story, LadyMoondancer! I'm petrified of that happening to me whenever one of my orders doesn't go through the first time. I'm jealous of all your superponies.

And Flutterblossom, I wouldn't worry about it! :) We are all camping out for Ditzy in this thread, so I don't think it's odd that anyone brought the subject up.

My orders in 2007 were made around 2:00 PM as well.

Edit:  2:00 PM Pacific Time, I should add.  (Two hours later than Eastern Time.)

But I thiiiink I went to lunch first and came back and saw they had added her, so it may have really been an hour or two earlier than that.

S'all good. At the end of the day, we're all just here to camp out for plastic haired equine figures. No big deal.

Well with that info in mind, I'd say that it's gotta be today. I haven't heard of the pony being released on a Wednesday yet, so fingers crossed for the thounsandth time!

Ok, then maybe we have an approximate time, then? Not that I'm going to go do something else between now and then just in case (knowing my luck, they'd add her early just because I wasn't on the site) but it's nice to know about when to expect her to show up.

Post by: Flutterblossom on July 17, 2012, 01:50:19 PM
Somebody said earlier that it would be around 12 EST, and some of you guys said 2, so I guess 12-2 pm EST is the approximate time.

I'm kind of amused, watching all the regular site ponies sell out.  Who do you think is going to sell out next?

Funny pony-related story.  Went to TRU yesterday because it was right next to the salad bar where we went for dinner.  The pony section looked like it had been ransacked.  All that was left was a boatload of Pinkie Pie (the irritating talking one, the one with the RC car, and the luggage ones) and a handful of luggage Fluttershy.  Everyone else was GONE.  Hey Hasbro, maybe you should stop making so many pink ponies!

And then, when we were leaving the parking lot, there was a truck in front of us with a license plate that said HASBRO.  I wonder if it was one of their sales reps?
Title: Re: Is hasbrotoyshop down for anyone else right now?
Post by: Dragonflitter on July 17, 2012, 02:04:01 PM
Haha, that's a cute story! If I was driving and saw a vehicle with a license plate that said HASBRO I would totally squee and take a picture... and maybe even get out and talk to them if I saw the people getting out of the vehicle! X3 (Or maybe not, cuz I'm really shy...)

Gosh darn it, my boss just got here! Now I have to be a lot less obvious about my camping...

Post by: Flutterblossom on July 17, 2012, 02:05:06 PM
Yeah, I went to my Toys R Us on Sunday, and the MLP section was completely emptied too, except for that Baby Pinkie Pie and the RC Car. But there was a Bridesmaid Fluttershy and Twilight left, but the Twilight looked half opened and Fluttershy was on the ground! Toys R Us really needs to restock, especially after a BOGO sale! I bought them anyway though.

That's cool you saw a Hasbro truck! It was probably filled with PONIES!!  :happy:

Post by: Moss on July 17, 2012, 02:06:53 PM
They need to stop making that talking Pinkie. I was in TRU for the BOGO, and my dad was like, "Alright, what's talking to me?" There were 4 or 5 Pinkies giggling at me.... it's making me uncomfortable...

I did get a picture, but it's kind of dark (the sun was right behind it so the pic is kind of backlit).  I will try to get it off my phone and retouch it so you can read the license plate more clearly!

Oh that talking Pinkie... my husband cursed them out once in the middle of the store because they wouldn't shut up.

The same exact mane six luggage ponies every time I go, and tons of Canterlot merch still. I've been thinking of picking up the FS Luna/Celestia set while I still can, but I can never justify it.

Same here, especially for that Toys R Us set with Nightmare Moon! I missed the pre-order for it.

My local Walmarts are both very well stocked.  Well part of that is because I work in the toy department of one of them! XD  And it seems most stores around here keep very good stock, I already saw the flower fillies and bridlemaids sets at Target and ToysRUs.  Not the singles yet though.  I have learned something though in the year since I started working there, we have a TON of bronies in this town!  I have met 15 so far!! ^_^  I guess maybe that is why all the stores are so well stocked?  There is a very high demand for it.

I have a Target within walking distance of my apartment and it's really hit or miss. One Target won't have anything new while the one 2 miles away will. It's interesting to me how that happens and I hope the new Target works out for you. :)  The Toys R US stuff will be interesting. There is one sorta close to me and the other is way off in the north suburbs. :/ I'll be hoofing around a lot unless they restock the collectors set. If they do then I'll definitely save myself some grief and order online.

Yeah, I noticed that. I clicked on refresh and it took like 2 seconds.

I'll probably head to Wal-Mart and Target this weekend to see if they've added anything new yet. Probably not, though. The midwest seems to be the last to stock anything new. Last time I was at Target, the toy section was a mess and most of the stuff they had left was on clearance, so I guess they're close to doing the reset of the toy section. Last time I was at Wal-Mart, they had a bunch of wave 3, 4, & 5 singles, the Glimmer Wings, talking Pinkie and a bunch of the Pinkie Pie & Sweetie Belle set. Oh, and a box of wave 1 blind bags. I remember last year, Wal-Mart didn't add any new stuff until around mid-September, where Target had all the new stuff by the beginning of August.

My local Target is still carrying Canterlot items (they're not even on sale yet)! I have only found a Talking Cadance there, and that's about it. Their pony section is very small. There is another 2-level Target about 15 min away that always has a LOT of pony stuff in stock. They had so much Canterlot stuff on sale, that they moved some of it into a different aisle because it wouldn't all fit in the regular section!

My local Walmart is horrible mostly beacuse its very dangerous and a lot of homeless people beg there. It is also very dirty and gross, and yet the Target across from it is clean and safe. So I don't usally go to Walmart.

My Toys R Us is good though. They always seem to have good stock, but I think the bronies are buying everything from it, lol.

So I'm guessing the newborn pony dolls don't sell well? Every time I have gone looking for ponies, no matter where I am, I have seen that same Sweetie Belle, and it's been this way since early last year. That talking Pinkie Pie was quick to join her, and now Sunny Daze as well.

I haven't seen the new newborns (Rainbow Dash and Spike) in stores yet. Have they even been released?

I have seen them both at TRU.

Target- takes months to get in new stock. Saw the luggage ponies a while after they had already been found elsewhere
TRU- one is better than the other, though they're both hit or miss.
Walmart- best option, though gettting worse.

I feel like the pony sections in all of my local stores are shrinking.

Just in case people didn't see my edit, in 2007 I ordered my ponies at 2 PM Pacific Time, which would be 12 noon Eastern Time, I believe.    But I also think I ordered the ponies after coming back from lunch, so it's possible they were put on HasbroToyShop a bit earlier than that.

The TRU near me shut down. :/  But there is a Target opening just a few blocks from where I work!

I kind of wish I still had a TRU nearby, but really I haven't missed out on much. The one that used to be within walking distance from where I live closed a few years ago (they actually closed a ton of Chicago area TRUs around that time) and Best Buy is now in the building. I worked there as a Seasonal worker for two years in a row (I wanted to be hired on, but I didn't work the right shift to be noticed by the right managers, apparently) and I had a tendency to spend most of my paychecks there. Everything was so expensive, though. I still have Target, though, which is across the street from where TRU was and they usually have just as big of a selection. And Wal-Mart is just a few miles down the road.

I hate time zones.

I feel like there had been more TRUs in my area, but the better ones closed. Thankfully, the Walmarts and TRUs are close to each other, so on a good day, I can convince a driver to take me on the "pony circuit".

I think it's the other way around. If it was 2PM Pacific Time then it would be like 5PM Eastern Time. I think if they go up today it may be at 9AM Pacific time which would make it Noon Eastern time.

Last year, the pony was on the site just after 2PM Central time, so 3PM Eastern and 12PM Pacific. So it could still be like 4 more hours.

I never had much issue with timezones. I was born in IL (Central time) and raised in MI (Eastern time) and I've always gone back and forth between the two time zones because of family in both states. Then my brother and his wife moved to Mesa, AZ for awhile so we had to keep their timezone in mind when calling them. Of course, that was really strange to get used to because since they don't change their clocks for DST, so we had to keep in mind whether they were on Mountain or Pacific time.

I was born and raised in Michigan and moved to IL! Similar situation. I go back to Michigan to see family a lot and I have friends and family on the west coast so timezone differences is something I've really been getting use to remembering. I still get tripped up thinking that Pacific is 2 hours behind my current time and not 3.

I just sent an email to HTS customer service asking if she'd be up at some point. I highly doubt I'll get an answer, but it was worth a shot. Nothing to loose, at least!

EDIT: Well that was fast! Here's the response:
Hello Kaitlin,

Thank you for your email as well as your interest in our products. We do plan to have the 2012 SDCC exclusives available for sale after the convention, which ran from 7/11-7/15. Unfortunately we cannot give you a precise day or time that the items will be scheduled to go live as there are several factors that come into play – leftover stock needs to be inventoried at the close of the convention, loaded onto trailers and shipped to our warehouse where it needs to be received, recounted and examined for damages and put into stock.  At that point it will be available for sale.  We ask that you check back on the site frequently following the close of the convention for the best opportunity to purchase. We do apologize, but due to the high demand and limited quantities of these items Hasbro does not offer any presales or item reservations.

 

We greatly appreciate your business.  If you have additional questions, please visit our website, www.HasbroToyShop.com, or contact our Customer Service Center via e-mail at CustomerService@HasbroToyShop.com or phone at 1-800-408-0052.

That's the only thing I can think of, otherwise there would be none left. Unless Zecora's the only one who will be up. I just asked about the exclusive pony, but I forgot to mention 'grey peg' specifically.

That's what I'm worried about. I'm hoping they set some aside for the website, but if they could sell everything they had at the convention, why wouldn't they?

Ah well, we'll just have to wait and see.

I didn't know they were going to put Zecora up on HTS too. I thought she was a TRU-only exclusive.

Zecora was the Toys r Us exclusive, right? They didn't sell her at the Hasbro booth, so I assume the grey pegasus is the exclusive they are talking about.

I'm betting they set some aside. They've been saying since the beginning that there will be some for sale on the site after the con since before it started, and I don't think they said anything about "only if there are some left" which makes me think they hold some back. But still, they put all the SDCC exclusives on the site at once, so even if there's only the ponies they set aside left, they'd still have to wait until the rest of the exclusives are inventoried first.
Title: Re: Is hasbrotoyshop down for anyone else right now?
Post by: Moss on July 17, 2012, 03:58:22 PM
I have no clue about Zecora being on HTS, I just knew she was a SDCC exclusive. It didn't occur to me that she was TRU's exclusive, NOT Hasbro's. Please ignore me!
Title: Re: Is hasbrotoyshop down for anyone else right now?
Post by: Ren-Ren on July 17, 2012, 04:01:35 PM
The rep didn't specifically say Ditzy would be up, just that they would be putting SDCC exclusives up on the site. It wasn't specified whether all or just some would be up. So I wouldn't trust completely that she's going to appear, unfortunately...
Still, I really hope she does!!
Title: Re: Is hasbrotoyshop down for anyone else right now?
Post by: Dragonflitter on July 17, 2012, 04:05:45 PM
Yeah there was never a garantee that there would be leftovers from SDCC, we're all just hoping at this point. I've told myself all along since I started camping yesterday that they might have completely sold out at the con. :(

It sounds like they are only selling the leftovers to me but from the beginning they did say they would sell some on  the shop...so I would expect them to hold some back.

Are the wedding set ponies that are out of stock gone forever or will they restock them?  I still can't decide if I want them.

The hasbro e-mail does not sound good at all. If they are going to list "leftover stock" on the website, well, we know there is no leftover stock of :muffin: Pony. :( however, searching for other comic con items yields no results, so they haven't gotten any of their stock yet.

Odds are they'll get the wedding set back in stock at some point, yup, or it can be snagged from various retailers.

And yeah, they haven't posted any of the other exclusives yet either, and they definitely still had stock of some of the others. So hope exists.

Aren't there bound to be some Ditzy Doos though, isn't she supposed to be the fair pony for the UK con in what October? too?  I would bet they would have to have made sure to have something left and maybe make more then to make sure that fair gets at least as many as our fair did.

I like pizza the same way. Lots of cheese and not much sauce. I go for olives sometimes, but you've gotta be in the right mood.

I wouldn't be here waiting in this thread if I didn't get dumped right before the MLP fair and thus the person going to pick up Ditzy for me failed to do so... -_- Talk about double kick to the stomach.

At least this thread is a bright spot in my otherwise sucky life while I wait to see if I can grab her. =P

I've been watching the Ebay auctions on our little gray friend, and it's kind of interesting to see how she's climbing in price.  I was searching completed auctions, and there were a bunch of people who ended their listings early.  I wonder how many were hoping to get more for her and relisted at a higher rate, or put up auctions early and then didn't actually get the pony at SDCC.  I did see a few with negative feedback for doing just that.

Yeah I hope everyone who preordered her but didn't get it, and later saw the seller with the same item up for sale at a higher price, puts in a complaint to ebay immediately. That's waaay against the rules and ebay will come down hard on them.

I read that Mattel actually gives people a solid day & time when their SDCC items will be sold online. That would be nice since it gives everyone an equal shot at getting the stuff, but on the other hand, it probably also means they'll sell out quicker. Of course, their sales don't start until the 23rd I think.

I heard from a reliable source that the UK pony con is not getting an exclusive this year because Hasbro insisted that they order an absolutely insane number of them (10,000) or else they weren't sending any).  If I am wrong, someone please correct me, but that's my current understanding.

Right click and select Properties.  You can see the filename that way.

I'm not offended by it, usually if something's too good to be true, it probably is!
And besides, who's going to take the time post up a picture of a screen (to screencap, upload, and post) when they'd probably be buying up the pony instead if they saw her?  :P

I heard from a reliable source that the UK pony con is not getting an exclusive this year because Hasbro insisted that they order an absolutely insane number of them (10,000) or else they weren't sending any).  If I am wrong, someone please correct me, but that's my current understanding.

Really? But if they only had 1000 for SDCC isn't that a bit harsh? Or did I miss a bit?


And that was a mean joke. For shame.

$125?!  *Faints*

OMG, that price is outrageous.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Aren't there bound to be some Ditzy Doos though, isn't she supposed to be the fair pony for the UK con in what October? too?  I would bet they would have to have made sure to have something left and maybe make more then to make sure that fair gets at least as many as our fair did.

Now let's all break into song . . .

Ditzy, Ditzy Doo, where are you? We want to order you now!
Ditzy, Ditzy Doo, where are you? Why won't they make enough of you now?
Come on, Ditzy Doo, I see you . . . up on stupid eBay.
But you're not scalping me, wait and see, I'll get you some o-ther way!

^_^ I am borrowing this song as a Facebook status!!!!  It's epic!!

Yes!  Total facebook status!

I want to go ahead and buy one, but I'm terrified that if I do my seller will contact me and be like "oh hey, got your pony" and then I'll be $160 invested in Best Pony instead of just $75 as it stands.  >_<

I noticed they were going up.  I lost an auction yesterday in the last few seconds and my husband suggested I just do a Buy it Now on the cheapest one I could find.  I paid $60 (not including shipping), which is pretty high but at least the seller actually *has* the item.  I had saved a few auctions in my watch list though, just to see... and now that $60 looks like a bargain compared to what some of these are ending at.  $68, $75, $90?  Wow.

Nope, not even considering. It sounds harsh, but she's only worth the plastic used to make her, not close to $100. I'd rather find a cheap pony to custom myself than pay that!

it's normal for the exclusive to peak around $150 then drop back down, even as far back as 2007 it was happening. :)  The sky high prices are really not anything new.

I'm not going to go to ebay, though. -.- I can't afford double or triple her price. If I can't get her on HTS, I'm just going to give up... sigh.

From what I understand, it has always been the Monday or Tuesday after SDCC ends, but I don't think a pony has ever sold so well at the convention before either. They could be scrambling to find extra Ditzy's to sell since they did publicly promise there would be some on the site. That's what I'm telling myself anyway.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for 4PM EST.

I would like one, but with the eBay prices, plus shipping to the UK, plus probably customs charges getting it into the country, its getting very expensive to even think about. And it looks like from what other people are saying they're not bringing her to the UK con. So...  :(

Man, I hate to say it, but I've been thinking about it... Hasbro doesn't have the best communication within their staff. Just because the folks who manage the Facebook said it doesn't mean that the people working SDCC knew about it, and might have sold all their stock without realizing that they should have been saving some for the site. Of course, I could be totally wrong, and I really hope that's not the case, but we've all run into issues with Hasbro's poor communication before, I think.

It doesn't help that HTS is actually a separate entity from Hasbro proper, the latter probably being the one in charge of the Facebook page.

email from Hasbro Customer Service received today:

Hello Sarah,

Thank you for your email as well as your interest in our products. We do plan to have the 2012 SDCC exclusives available for sale after the convention, which ran from 7/11-7/15. Unfortunately we cannot give you a precise day or time that the items will be scheduled to go live as there are several factors that come into play – leftover stock needs to be inventoried at the close of the convention, loaded onto trailers and shipped to our warehouse where it needs to be received, recounted and examined for damages and put into stock.  At that point it will be available for sale. We ask that you check back on the site frequently following the close of the convention for the best opportunity to purchase. We do apologize, but due to the high demand and limited quantities of these items Hasbro does not offer any presales or item reservations. We apologize, but until the items are listed on our site we will not know the household limits.

 
We greatly appreciate your business.  If you have additional questions, please visit our website, www.HasbroToyShop.com, or contact our Customer Service Center via e-mail at CustomerService@HasbroToyShop.com or phone at 1-800-408-0052. (8 AM - 8 PM EST, Monday - Friday and 10 AM - 6:30 PM EST, Saturday)


Sincerely yours,

Amanda

Well remember guys, they put ALL their exclusives up at the same time. So even if say there were only X number of :muffin: Pony, there are still all their other SDCC exclusives to inventory as well before it would go live. They seemed to have a few more exclusives this year than other years so it very well could be Wednesday.

None of the other SDCC stuff is up yet either. Until those are, I know that the pony exclusive hasn't been released either.

I heard from a reliable source that the UK pony con is not getting an exclusive this year because Hasbro insisted that they order an absolutely insane number of them (10,000) or else they weren't sending any).  If I am wrong, someone please correct me, but that's my current understanding.

Really? But if they only had 1000 for SDCC isn't that a bit harsh? Or did I miss a bit?

That was my reaction too!  10k, good heavens!  Unless the person mistyped and meant 1k?  This is all secondhand on my end, but the poster was a very reliable old time community member.

Oh, and I'm glad you guys liked the song!  ;)

Even if was 1k, then UKPonycon should seriously consider ordering them. That would be quite a few pennies raised for charity!

I'm giving it until 5pm EST. I'm hoping that they wouldn't put it up outside of business hours. I really can't wait any longer because I'm super tired and need to get some sleep.

I'm a little worried that the prices won't go down after she sells on HTS.  On one hand there will be more of them out there to help with the demand, but at the same time once she's sold from HTS there will be no other way to possibly get her then ebay or trading sooo.. I could see her going even higher.

The group of people that bought fair exclusives in the past is a pretty small percentage of the people who are pony fans now.  And considering any new fans of the show in the future will probably want a DD/DH (and have no way to get her but ebay).   So... I'm pretty worried it won't follow the same formula past exclusives have.

I've seen bronies at conventions shell out TONS of money for pony plushies, so I don't see them minding paying a ton for an official toy of her.


All that aside I really wish they'd just post her up already. >w<  Even if I don't get her atleast I'll know I can quit refreshing and watching.

Even if Hasbro wouldn't sell less than 1000 ponies, UKPonycon should seriously thing about investing in them. That would be a whole lotta cash for charity!

When I asked Hasbro about her selling online after SDCC, they said they put up "whatever is left over from Comic Con" and they sold out at comic con. Now unless they left some boxes at home base, I have a feeling that "Gray Pegasus" will not be for sale online. :< Which is disappointed because I missed her at the MLP Fair.

They say that every year, that they will put up what's left. People freak out and flock to eBay, and then they put a bunch on the site a few days after SDCC. Every year they last longer and longer. Hasbro isn't dumb they know what they're doing. They know everyone is waiting.

Yes they do, but there has never been such a demand for said exclusive pony like there is now.

Post by: majikarte on July 17, 2012, 11:16:45 PM
It was mentioned a little earlier in the thread that they had to order 10 000 or something like that? I wish they were able to, it'd be nice if there were 10 000 more of the pony for people to own.
Title: Re: Is hasbrotoyshop down for anyone else right now?

10,000 seems a little extreme for a fair pony.

I dont think the UK Con have said one way or the other and the rumour mills are a-churning :P I would say its looking unlikely we will get her over here this year though.

Here's a tip: If you are on the exclusives page, select it to sort by youngest to oldest. Most likely are little grey pegasus will be ages 3 and up while other action figures and Transformers will be rated older.
And if you're on the MLP page, sort by Newest.

I'm not sorting the exclusives page because there's only 6 items, and I've got it set to 27 per page. But I like your thinking!

The Transformers folks have since made up, formed a support organization, and are designing t-shirts to commemorate the epic wait. I could not make this up if I tried.  :silly:

We need The Great Ditz-aster T-shirts!

I'm sitting around hoping that this whole :muffin: Pony disaster was just a big ploy by the Hasbro team to make a lot of money.  Bring a very limited amount to first fair, make her seem ULTRA rare.  Bring a very limited amount to SDCC so they all sell out and everyone is flipping out.  Leave the fans foaming at the mouth for days trying to figure out when they'll go up online.

Then put TONS of them on the website so that everyone jumps on in a terrible rush to make sure they get one and buy up multiples of them before they realize that aren't nearly as rare as they thought.  Hasbro makes lots of money, the fans are super happy that they were able to get her, and the only people getting 'screwed' in the deal is the scalpers. ;D  I know it's probably way too optimistic but that's what I've been hoping for ever since SDCC ended.

Everyday now since Monday, my mom will come home and go "did you get your pony yet?" She doesn't quite understand why I want to spend all this time waiting around to buy a pony when I have so many already. But she is buying it for me (I'm paying with her credit card) because I did some work for her. Hopefully today I'll be able to tell her "yes" when she inevitably asks me again.

Well, anyone who buys from the online store could return them.  So if there were tons of them I think the resellers would sell what they could at a profit to ebay people who don't know yet, and then return the rest.  The only people who would really be "screwed" would be the collectors who bought pre-sales or after-con sales before the market was flooded.

I barely slept last night at all. I kept dreaming that :muffin: Pony was on the site and I was missing it so I'd wake up and realize I was just dreaming, then it would happen again. Like I could see her on the site in my dream, but I couldn't get to the computer to order her. It was really strange. I half expected to check this morning to find she'd been added and sold out last night or something.

Is anyone else worried that they might have sold through ALL of their stock at Comic Con???? :shocked:

I've been worried about that a lot.  I've heard that they sold out of her so fast, and that the stock on the website is typically what's left over after the con.  But you never know - there may be a few left out there.
They haven't put up any of the other exclusives yet, and I'm sure there are SOME things still left, even if they aren't ponies.  That's when I'm giving up, when other Hasbro exclusives show up in the shop.

As someone whos bought the con pony for the past couple years I doubt they ran out. Although this is the longest year we've had to wait. In the past it was the first monday after the con and there was a link right on the front page for con exclusives. Ugh this year is torture!!!

When Disney puts up their limited dolls they tell us the time and day, but even then sometimes the doll doesn't show up until hours later.  I waited two hours past the hour the last time.  For Merida someone finally linked us to the website sales page code before she was showing in the searches for her on the store site.  I don't know how they did it though but it meant I could finally go to bed.

Out of curiosity, do you think most of the people trying to buy Ditzy are adults (that is for adults).  Or do you think there are many parents trying to get one for their kids?

I'd say most that are trying will be adult buying for themselves (like collectors) or those who know they can sell her and get a good bit of money out of her ._.

In the magical world in my head she will be cheaper on the site than she was at con.  though I know reality wont allow that lol.  Im very tempted myself but Im the same way and Id have to get them all too and my wallet will want a divorce.
also yay siggy fun!

Out of curiosity, do you think most of the people trying to buy Ditzy are adults (that is for adults).  Or do you think there are many parents trying to get one for their kids?

I think it's mostly adults. The con/art ponies aren't really considered "play things" as far as I understand. Then again, Ditzy was in the show, even if she had a very minor one-time speaking role, so maybe.

It's probably adult fans - pony collectors, bronies, and everypony in between.  Maybe even some pop-culture fans, since she is such a big deal (if she's so hard to find, then I want one too).

Yeah it's mostly adults and I'm sure the vast majority are probably resellers. I'm just hoping to snag one and if I'm super lucky a second for a pony pal who's not in the USA. :/ I doubt I will be and yet here I am! It's been a slow work week. :p

Is :muffin: Pony just more expensive than last year's SDCC pony, or did they discount it last year? I know last year I used a code that gave me free shipping and 10% off but I think she was listed as $15. Was that her price at the con last year, or was she $20 there?

Ugh, I'm not used to getting up this early three days in a row, usually I wake up around noon (Central)!  My eyes keep flipping out and feel much like our little muffin pony' eyes!   :zzz:

I know the feeling! I keep crazy hours. I'm used to getting my snooze on about now. This is several days of sleep deprivation now, and it's making me a weeeee bit silly. For a very large definition of wee. ;)

And yeah, I'm guessing adults. As is usually the case with most convention exclusives, I'd think. The cost/difficulty to acquire tend dissuade casual buyers.

I feel like Hasbro's going to be treading a fine line with the esclusives this year. Obviously, there was hype on Monday. Tuesday was looking pretty good, too. But as the week wears on, less and less people are going to be checking the site. They're gonna start loosing people if they don't get these up soon.
Title: Re: Is hasbrotoyshop down for anyone else right now?
Post by: Ice Crystal on July 18, 2012, 02:28:53 PM
There is definitely going to be extra competition this year between the bronies and extra vigilant scalpers. They're going to be able to get a lot more for Ditzy than they have for past con exclusives, I suspect.
Title: Re: Is hasbrotoyshop down for anyone else right now?
Post by: svleonard on July 18, 2012, 02:29:20 PM
I think it's mostly adult and teenage collectors, and possibly resellers.  I am trying to get one for a friend and one for trading purposes.  I would never buy one to resell for more than it's worth!  That's wrong.

Nope, they've been skirting around the issue by just calling her the "exclusive pony" or "grey pegasus".

I'm actually surprised that Bronies would even want her. I thought they didn't like any brushables. From what I read frequently on EQD, they seem to only like the ones with molded hair (like from the first gift set) and the blind bags. Are they just making an exception since it's :muffin: Pony? I'm really curious about this.

I think a lot of them wanted some show accurate ponies. Now that they're coming out I'm sure a lot of bronies are breaking down and getting brushables.

Yeah, that seems to be the case. I think it's kind of funny that Hasbro keeps catering to them with the toys when they don't really buy the brushables in the first place.

But Ditzy is special, I guess. Bronies kind of consider her their brainchild of sorts since they "created" her. Not to mention that she's a highly collectible exclusive. I think some of them will put aside their hatred of "show inaccurate" brushables for the sake of owning Hasbro's gift to them.

They went crazy about the 'collectors favourites' pack too that came with Nightmare Moon and DJ PON-3, so I think it matters which pony it is.

Yeah, seconding this. It's a pretty small minority who collect the toys, and TBH, most of them are worlds more interesting than the 'typical' fans. If I ever hear "eww, brushable hair, why doesn't Hasbro cater to its biggest fanbase and make molded-only ponies?" again, it will be too soon!

Honestly if they switched completely to molded hair just for the fan base, I'd be angry. These are toys for little girls (kids) after all, most of them -like- to be able to brush and style hair.

It's possible that they made a Playful Pony size Ditzy for the favorites pack and quickly replaced her with Lemon Hearts after the whole controversy. I don't think the FS size one was meant to be there though. I think she was probably always meant to be an exclusive of some sort.

I saw a custom using a  fashion style applejack on ebay about a month ago, and it was absolutely gorgeous, but I was like "WHY NOT USE ONE OF THE FIVE MILLION FLUTTERSHYS?!?!?!?!?!??!??!" ergh.
I customized a FS Applejack for a trade because I wanted my friend to be able to play with her without paint chipping off. Anyways, Applejack isn't rare, she's just expensive because nobody wants to wait until she's rereleased this fall. I found her on TaoBao for like 20 bucks sooooo...
She's getting rerealesed? woohoo!  :biggrin:  :frolic:

saply, there's no saying what accessories Applejack will be released with when they put her out again. If the accessories are totally different then yes, she'll be considered rare. She was put out in quite few numbers.
Oh well! No regrets!

When I first started to see the FS I wasnt worried about missing a character cuz I knew that they would keep reusing the main 6. Annoying really, but they have included Celestia and Luna etc. so I cant be too mad.

I doubt there was ever a plan for a Dizzy brushable size, or if there was it must have gotten canned at the planning stage. If even a basic prototype had been made, someone from the factory would have grabbed it and put it up on taobao by now.
Hee I got someone else calling her Dizzy XD Didn't plan on that! And I agree with you on this, they would have grabbed a basic brushable by now. But that is also why people make customs of her too. I'm planning on making a non-GitD Zacora that isn't lame with painted bangles that don't even go all the way around her leg I: If I wanted to do a custom of Dizzy I would but again there is too many of her as a custom already

Good.  That should help slow down the scalpers! XD 
I have a FS AppleJack in my bait box.  In my defense, I bought her (just the pony no acessories) off ebay forever and two days ago for like $6.  I scalped her and used her hair for customs.  This was before she starting hitting the $100 mark. :P

I got ridiculously excited when I saw the banner change to mention that SDCC exclusives won't qualify for free shipping. I hope it means the SDCC items will go up today. I can keep this up today and tomorrow, but on Friday, my brother's wife is going to have her baby (they're inducing labor) so I'll probably be at the hospital then.

re: the shipping... you can probably still use the MLPTEN (or is it MLP10) code for a 10% discount, so that'd take care of some of the shipping. Although plugging in a code means more time refreshing a page...

You guys crack me up.  *passes around the popcorn--freshly made!!* Too early for a beer, but not sure how well coffee goes with popcorn... *swaps popcorn for a muffin*

I'm only stalking because I told a friend in UK I'd get one at the fair for her (meaning stand in line and we all know how that turned out. As a vendor, I didn't even get a chance to get in line before they sold out!), so now I'm gonna stalk the Hasbro sales for it. It's become a matter of principle.  :P So I'm working on accounts receivable in between page refreshes and peeking in on this thread... and boy am I glad I work from home.  I *am* de boss. :biggrin:

If I ever hear "eww, brush-able hair, why doesn't Hasbro cater to its biggest fanbase and make molded-only ponies?" again, it will be too soon!

I do really like the blind bag ponies, but I love brushable hair even more.  That is what makes a My Little Pony a My Little Pony.  They have brushable hair.

I don't think it is bad to debox a limited pony, but I've never liked haircuts on any ponies unless they are customs made from baits.  Now if in 10-20 years the number of in box limited whatevers are rare, then I would cringe if someone deboxes them.  Which is why I try never to buy ponies I can't debox.  I like them free to roam and wander heather and yonder.  Hither I mean.  I always said "heather" as a kid.

I am stuck in a basement with two dogs and my sisters!! The maids are in my house cleaning and they always rearrange my ponies or move them. It is very annoying! I can't go upsatirs to eat but my basement it filled with snacks so I'm good. I really want tomato soup though...

Maaaan, I could go for some Chinese food too, chibiric! Although I admit it - I love the fakey-Americanized Chinese food at PF Chang's. I know it's not real Chinese - but it's so good!! :faint:
Oh yes, I love PF Changs too! They have more than one vegetarian option so i am always happy there!

does anyone know how hasbro's checkout system works? Like, say they have 60 items. Someone adds one to their cart. Does it go down to 59 items immediately after being 'added to cart' or does the number go down after it has been 'checked out' or paid for?
Cause if we have 500 people trying to add ditzy to their cart, and there's only say 100 of her, a lot of people are gonna be upset when their cart turns up empty upon checkout...

Oh chinese sounds sooo good! :drunk:  We don't have anything here in town.  I live in the boonies, lol.  So I'm probably just gonna have a grilled cheese for lunch.  Might get "fancy" and add a slice of tomato.

Im not sure but im going to say that the deal isnt sealed untill youve got an order confirmation number, aka fully checked out and paid for her.

Lol, at least this is coming from a legitimate hasbro dealer. Back in April, you definitely didn't actually have a derpyy until the thing was sitting at your house. (As I, unfortunately, found out the hard way)

Agreed. Someone in this forum was talking yesterday about how her checkout kept crashing repeatedly and she thought she didn't get the exclusive pony at all...and then her credit card was billed several hundred dollars and 13 of the exclusive showed up at her door.... x_X

From what I have been told, adding the item to your cart doesn't "hold" the item. The item doesn't disappear from the stock count until it has been confirmed and paid for.

Also, I think they took the banner down from the exclusives page because you can't get free shipping on exclusives anyway.

Nothing weird about that! One of the things that makes it a classic is the diverse character personalities. There is someone in the cast for everyone to love. :) I've always been a Sailor V fan myself. :D

Well we might be able to get her within the first minute, while others would have to read the news on this forum, go to the website, add the item to the cart, type in the info or sign in, then buy it. We could get her before the servers crash if we are quick enough.

You know it was! And the sad thing is I started playing it like 10 times and only finished it once. And your not weird at all. Tons of people love the outer scouts.

T_T  Sadness... I kept clicking the go to checkout button for easily 5 minutes and it would never go anywhere and now she's out of stock.
Title: Re: Is hasbrotoyshop down for anyone else right now?

And she's gone. What was that, like less than 5 minutes?

Post by: Snapdragon on July 18, 2012, 04:21:16 PM
What the ever loving hell.

I click 'checkout' and it doesn't load. My friend who is not logged in got one.

The next update I get is Hasbro telling me that it's sold out.

EAT A BAG OF CENSORED, HASBRO.

Well not to be an ash but if youve got family then send it to them lol. it goes by house address im guessing.

I order two and got a confirmation e-mail for one of them. I'm hoping that means I'll at least get one. ^^;

*Doesn't take promo codes*
Got one! Well, still waiting on the confirmation emails... five minutes later... usually they're in the inbox right away...
Was about to head out for errands, took one last look and voila--GASP! I hope no one else did that and missed out.

Yay for everyone who's succeeded so far, GOOD LUCK to everyone who's still trying!

and holy crap, it says out of stock already... D:

I bought more than one.  If they cancel them, oh well.  But I needed to try to get more.  If they do end up cancelling them, at least I made one more person happy.

Post by: LadyMoondancer on July 18, 2012, 04:23:07 PM
They've obviously upgraded their site since 2007, that was amazingly painless. 

Eh, I don't think people should order more than one, because they're going to run out fast enough as it is . . .

Out of curiosity, does Hasbro Toy Shop ship to other countries besides the US?

Edit:  WOW, she is out of stock already??

Random ridiculousness -- I couldn't recall my credit card's security code. So I had to run go grab my wallet and run back. I may have broken a land speed record.

Luckily, my dogs are corgis, so the part where I had to vault over both of them was actually fairly simple.

That was so worth sitting at the computer for 3 days. I would have been so upset if I didn't get her, but since I did, I'm so freakin' happy! As soon as I got her I called my mom at work to let her know I got her. I was super excited and just had to tell someone. I wasn't happy about the shipping cost, but I guess I'll live. It ended up being $29.71 total after tax and shipping.

I had the same problem.  I ran to another computer (just in case it was an issue with my computer) and logged in again and managed to finish the order before they ran out.

I put her in my cart and tried to check out but the subtotal kept saying $0.00. So I screamed a bit (actually, a lot), logged out of my HTS account, logged back in, added her to the cart and THEN it let me check out. So thankful I got one!!

EDIT: I also didn't get a confirmation email yet (10 mins later!!), but I checked my bank and HTS is listed. So, looks good.

That is sort of what I figured . . . I managed to snag one, I think.  My thought was to hold a raffle for non-Americans only, with tickets for $2 each or something, since non-Americans had no chance to get one.  But . . . it looks like even Americans had only the slimmest chance to get one, so I think I will include Americans too.  One ticket per person so everyone has an equal chance

Please nobody PM me about this yet, I have to figure out how to manage this first, ha ha!  I'll post here and on the Sales board when I get it into gear.

for me it was one two three.  i took half a second to try mlp10 than said to myself "are you crazy!! time is of the essence!!" but the load times where really quick even in last step with the processing.  Im so sorry for everyone who had trouble :( this is by far the fastest i can remember them selling out except for the very first con pony which was about the same.

I was surprised how smoothly that went.

I was shaking so badly that I was afraid of messing up when entering the cc info. But I did get the confirmation page and I got the email right away as well. I think it did help that I was already signed in to my account and I probably did manage to fill everything out before most people even realized the exclusives were up.

It's such a relief to have this over and done with. Now I need to do the housework I put off doing the last two days while waiting for her to go on sale.

Were people able to grab more than one??  She had a limit on her and I didn't want to ruin my chances.

I ordered multiples.  I've gotten a confirmation email from hasbro for each, but like others, will be biting my nails til they ship lol.  I've been camping HTS for 3 days, to get her for people on my list I couldn't get her for at comic con.  I really hope they overlook the same address on all orders XD

Now I can go back to bed and actually sleep.  I've had 2 :muffin: Pony dreams this week, if not more lol.

I don't have any extras that I got off HTS unfortunately.  My bum of a pre-seller did get back to me in the end, so I'll have an extra that I will probably put up for sale, but I paid more for that one >_<

Well at least you got some rest.  Some of us have been up for hours anxiously awaiting the pony, only to put one in our shopping carts and for some reason be unable to check out.

Oh god me too!! Seeing how the trend this year is all the con stuff is limited to 1 we may have a chance but that also sucks for people who like to have two like myself cuz im a "one in box one to play with" kind of person. but we'll have to wait and see if Mattel is going to follow suit.

Just got my confirmation email.   :biggrin:

I'm very relieved she lasted long enough for me to get logged back in after the problem with the checkout button.  I was using IE too.

I was going to try for another to help out those who weren't able to get her, but she was gone before I had a chance.  It looks like it wouldn't have worked anyway since it was one per household.

I wonder how many they had available on the website?  I was able to get one for myself, plus told my friend how went to SDCC (and came up empty-handed), and then he got one too.
Now I feel a bit silly for having ordered one from Ebay, but oh well...

Don't feel silly.  I ordered pre-sale from ebay too.  I am waiting to hear what happened, but I wanted to be sure I had her one way or the other.  I pretty much figured I would have no luck online but I was going to try.

Maybe it was really one per order but they put up one per household to scare people into buying only one? I ordered 3 separatly and I got 3 confirmation emails. Hopefully that means all 3 will be shipped! I ordered 3 because I have two other sisters.

My friend collects toys in general, so he's used to dealing with this every year.  And every year its the same exact crap.  People getting around the limits then ebaying all their extras.  You'd think by now any one of these toy companies would have put more effort into preventing this.

And I've already seen people who got multiples beyond the limit AT the con already saying they got another one off HTS this morning.  Pretty despicable.

Possible they could restock any orders they cancel that were over the 1 per household limit.  But who knows when those would pop up.  Otherwise they are gone.

It's a hit and miss thing. Last year's pony randomly popped up a number of times, but Ditzy Doo is a whole different beast. If they go through and uphold their one per household limit and cancel multiple orders, there's a chance she can go back into stock.

That true, but the limit put in place was one per household. The system should be able to see when two or three of the same toy is being sent to the same address. If proxies, etc were used to have them sent to different locations, that would be different.

Yes, it should have... Hasbro is probably having too much faith in people to abide by their rules (not just for Ditzy, but for all of their SDCC stuff) and made that you can't increase the quantity in each separate order. But when it gets run through as a new order it doesn't actually process an order was JUST made for that address. And proxies are just used to get past all the lag so people can do it faster, from my understanding on other toy sites.

Doubtful, that should have been all of them.  I doubt they had many left over from CC.  My understanding is they have to retain a small amount by CA law, so they probably had the bare minimum that requires left anyways.  And people have been camping the site for days now.  Not too surprising they'd run out within five minutes.

For those of you that missed out. Try calling customer service! One of the Transformers guys is saying there's a callback list for any spares that go back into the pool because people ordered multiples. I don't know how accurate that is, but it can't hurt?

Well, the site is getting a HEAVY strain from all sorts of people getting stuff (and going around the one per household rule), so Hasbro can't be at fault for that. No matter how much you beef up a server, people are going to be using proxies, and being horrible people to screw other's over.

That said if only they had Pay After Delivery from PayPal I could have grabbed her. I won't have money until Friday or Saturday ;o;/

That true, but the limit put in place was one per household. The system should be able to see when two or three of the same toy is being sent to the same address. If proxies, etc were used to have them sent to different locations, that would be different.

Yes, it should have... Hasbro is probably having too much faith in people to abide by their rules (not just for Ditzy, but for all of their SDCC stuff) and made that you can't increase the quantity in each separate order. But when it gets run through as a new order it doesn't actually process an order was JUST made for that address. And proxies are just used to get past all the lag so people can do it faster, from my understanding on other toy sites.

True enough, just a bit sad that Hasbro didn't take extra precautions. I shouldn't be whining so much seeing as I was able to order one, but I just feel bad for those who weren't able to get them when others were able to buy multiples. If regular folks were able to skirt around the rule, I can't even imagine what experienced scalpers were able to do.

*comes back from picking up lunch for herself and her boss*

Aha, I have confirmation email! And yet I'm still anxious... I won't stop being anxious until I pick up the box at the post office and she's in my hand. XD

I'm really sorry for those that camped out with us but didn't get one. >.< I can't believe she sold out so quick! I thought she would still be here when I got back from lunch pick-up.

For the record, I ordered using Internet Explorer, had my account signed in and credit card info in there ahead of time, and I didn't have any problem ordering. I hit Check out and it went through without much lag at all as soon as the first person posted here that she was up. (I was refreshing this thread more than I was refreshing the HTS website lol!)

@Prismatic: You are so nice, to camp out this long and trying so hard to get them, all for the people on your Arena order list. *hug*

I'm sorry some of you guys didn't get one.  :(  But I think the shopping cart bugging out is just due to the fact that their site can't handle the traffic after SDCC.  I mean, Hasbro has their flaws, but I can see this one from their perspective . . . a website that does find 364 days out of the year and goes kind of wonky 1 day out of the year is probably not too bad as far as they are concerned.  I am not trying to diminish the feelings of people who are frustrated, but believe me when I say it was a million times worse just a few years ago.  Like, you were lucky if you could get the site to come up . . . and then you were lucky if you could get to the item you were interested in . . . and then you were lucky if you could get it into your shopping basket . . . and then you were lucky if you could enter your credit card # . . . and then you were lucky if you could get through the next three pages to make it go through.

Yeah, the "one item per household, oh but you can actually order it more than once in separate orders" thing is strange.  You would think that could be corrected.  I do not think they will manually go back and delete orders, based on my "baker's dozen 2007" experience.

I think it was site traffic that made shopping carts glitch out--I was already a member and was signed in and my order went through without a problem.

So it wasn't just me having the "unable to load" error with their shopping cart?

Does this merit an angry letter to Hasbroken? I'm thinking yes. Who the hell has such a crappy check-out system, anyway? What's the point of signing up for an account if it affords you LESS SERVICE in the pursuit of an exclusive?! PS still pissed
I had the same frickin' problem. And I have every intention of writing a really pissed email. Sooo dissapointed right now!

I think I might too. I mean - what's the point of signing up to THEIR SITE if it means you get LESS SERVICE? :/ I'm really, really not okay with this. And, no offense to anyone else - but if their 'one perhousehold' plan is working so well, how come so many people got multiples? That probably goes double for resellers.
Yeah, what was the point of the limit, then?

Exactly. And yes, I'm bitter as hell right now - but if Hasbro says "the limit is one" and I got 0 and someone else got around the limit super friggin' easily, then yeah, Hasbro needs to freakin' check themselves before they wreck themselves.

Pissed email is in process. Shall we make this the pissed email-writing thread? ;)
Email sent. And I'm not trying to be mean to those who got mulitples, but I'm sad that you guys were able to get 2 or 3 while some of us couldn't even get the one we were allowed.

Exactly! I understand getting multiples (I would have too, I have sisters and friends who want one!), but ... if the rule was one per person, and I got NONE while people got two or three, yeah, I'm gonna feel ripped off. :/ Especially since I've been sitting here, for three days, for hours, with BRONCHITIS, and I got nothing.
Yep. They shouldn't have bothered with the limit at all.

Alright, angry (but very polite!) email sent.

I also missed out on it, me and a friend of mine have been sitting on the site since Saturday.  She got one and I missed it because she came up just at the time that a family member decided to talk to me about getting lunch!  Super frustrating!  I literally was constantly refreshing from 12:00-12:02 and just missed her!  Anyway,  I also sen a letter to Hasbro but I doubt it will get me anywhere complaining about a few things.   Doubt any of us will get anywhere.  And I'm not supporting the scalpers on eBay at $80 for her.

I didn't get very far either but the lady I spoke with said that they are doing extra checking to make sure that the same credit card wasn't used with different addresses provided - so people won't be able to get more than one. She said she doubts any more will become available again today but to check back frequently because they will be going "in and out of stock," for a while.

I'm not going to get my hopes up but I suppose there is no harm in checking the site now and then.

2007 was the year I believe that the first super hero comic con pony was released, if I remember right it was a mad rush for her as well and she sold out very quickly. I don't believe it was as quick as :muffin: Pony though.  I am glad for all who where able to get her and also my friend who loves :muffin: Pony more then me, just frustrated is all. I'm going to just keep on checking Hasbrotoyshop and eBay so see if she either goes back up or even lower then $80 on eBay.  I have all the comic con ponies and really hate to be short one :p

People keep referring to 2007.  What happened then?


In 2007 the site was lagging sooo badly that people could barely get on it due to the frenzied efforts of MLP collects, Transformers collectors, etc, to get the SDCC exclusives.  The site was so buggy and slow that it crashed almost every time you tried to make an order.  Crash, crash, crash.  I tried like 50 times to get my order to go through and FINALLY I got to the “Your order has been confirmed” page.

Then a day or two later I got NINE OR TEN “Your order has been shipped” notices.  What the . . . ?

I checked my credit card and it had been charged for a couple hundred dollars (don’t recall the exact amount)!   Even though I had only gotten to the “Your order has been confirmed” page once, I had successfully but unwittingly managed to order THIRTEEN 2007 superhero ponies.  And I couldn’t cancel them because they had already been shipped.

I have a picture of them somewhere on my computer, I’ll post it when I find it.

LOL, I'm not coolin' down! ;) But it's always best to keep a cool head, especially when dealing with customer service - it's not their fault their site's glitching, after all. And being nice makes them want to help you that much more! (And the CS people who work for Hasbro are so sweet, anyway.)

I remember that! Man, I got lucky with Frilly Frocks - I had been saving up my points anyway, even though I didn't need anything else, and I almost had the 150 by the time they announced her! So grateful I was able to get her, I can't imagine shelling out $150+ for her on the secondary market! :yikes: I hope it won't be that way with Bubblecup...!

For a plush pony that's, what, four feet tall?  Ha ha ha!  I didn't manage to get Frilly, but I wouldn't have had room for her anyway.

Yeah, that one blew my mind too! I figured they were just counting the shipping costs into the point 'cost' - since, what, you got one point for every $5 spent? So you pretty much had to pay Hasbro $750 to get her in the first place, the least they could do was kick in for free shipping! :lmao:

Good News Everyone!! (well for you guys, not for my sisters though)
As you may have heard, I ordered 3 separate Ditzy Doos to the same address (one for me, the others for my sisters). Two of them were cancelled while the other one says "not shipped". Hasbro must be canceling multiple orders now, which means those who did not get one the first time have another chance to get her!!! I am just glad they did not completely cancel all of my orders!  ^^; :good:

I pulled a MAJOR dumb with my order for Frilly Frocks. Sent all those points to Hasbro... put delivery confirmation and insurance on the padded envelope. Thought for sure I was covered and that I would get her!

Know what I forgot? The money for shipping. DOH! So I never got her. I remember being soooo bummed out back then because I wanted every G3 thing I could get my hands on. I probably would have sold her later on down the line anyway so I'm okay with it now.

Looking on the forum, the first person to post 'she's up!' was at 12:08 PM Eastern, and the first person (and my own experience) show 'she's down!' at 12:19 PM, so yeah, gone in about 10 minutes.

I figured out why she didn't show up in the search results for "My Little Pony". On the website, she is listed as "MY LITTLY PONY 2012 Special Edition Pony". Hasbro mispelled "Little", lol.

It says "Limit of 1 Per household"  and Hasbro does check orders for same-addresses and cancels multiples.

By some miracle I did two separate orders like Flutterblossom and some others did.  I'm expecting my second order may be cancelled since it was mentioned earlier in the thread that Hasbro is canceling double orders due to the one per household restriction.  I got the second in hopes of getting an extra for dollhands who is a arena member located in New Zealand.

I noticed mine has 7/19 listed as the expected ship date. I wonder if they'll actually ship out that fast.

Does anyone know what shipping service (UPS, FedEx, etc) that Hasbro uses? I've only ordered from them once (last year's SDCC pony), but I don't remember how she arrived. I hope it's not FedEx. I hate FedEx.

A lot of people, including myself, ordered more than one :muffin: Pony when they popped up. At the bottom of the page with :muffin: Pony on it, it said limit one per household. Since I didn't see that part until after I ordered, I thought it was one per order. A few people posted on the Arena that they got multiples, even with that one per household limit. Also, many people had her in their cart but couldn't check out due to an error. So the people who couldn't get one complained to Hasbro Customer Service about people getting multiples then Hasbro started canceling the multiple orders.

I doubt Hasbro would put the warning there, then just not bother to check for multiple ponies going to the same address. I don't think it had anything to do with people pointing it out, they've canceled multiple orders in the past as well.

I've been thinking alot about this Derpyy thing. The fans in the community say that Hasbro is "stupid" for not making enough to meet demand. But I don't think that's right. I think hasbro is EXTREMELY smart. Selling out of Derpyy in 10 minutes flat just makes you want her more, doesn't it? DOESN'T IT?!

What they're doing is creating even MORE demand. It's absolute GENIUS from a marketing standpoint.

Maybe it's because I come from an advertising background, but I see the comicon Derpyy as Hasbro "testing the waters" with Derpyy to see how well she does. My prediction is that the Comicon Derpyy will be a limited edition, but that since she passed their little "marketing test" with flying colors, that you'll be seeing merchandise of her popping up all over the place in stores like Hot Topic and FYE, stores that market toys to adults.

I mean, look at Gir from Invader Zim. Nickelodeon would let hot topic slap him on toilet seat covers if they thought the crazy gir-fangirls would eat it up. I predict that we'll see something very similar with Derpyy. Her name may have offended, but the pony herself is a money printing machine for hasbro. And they know that.

It sucks that a bunch of people missed out. But I hope you guys and gals don't think that Ditzy Doo is going to be a never-again-exclusive. The fashion style one might be the G4 equivalent of Rapunzel... but now that Hasbro is POSITIVE that they have struck gold with this character, they're going to market the living bejeepers out of her.

My point...
Please don't feel so bad about missing out. I felt terrible about missing out on the prototype Ditzy Doo because I thought I'd never get my chance at one. ... and now she's all over ebay if you're willing to pay for her.

I could be totally wrong, but I believe you'll all get a chance to own a derpyy, even if it's not the FS style sized one. :)

This is true -- it happens every year with the SDCC exclusives, and not just with pony orders.  It doesn't have anything to do with other people complaining.  They know it's going to happen. It just takes them awhile to sort through all the orders and cancel the multiples.

They send it to a courier company (usually Streamlite, but will sometimes use UPS SmartPost) that will bring bring it to your nearest USPS sort facility to then be brought to your local post office, so when they ship it out it won't track via USPS right away it'll be one of those two sites you'll have to check first. It will always end up in USPS's hands though.

I don't think it;s because it's offensive to anyone here so much as it causes silly debates sometimes for literally no reason at all. No one has a problem with :muffin: Pony pony as far as I know, just her name causes pointless arguements sometimes. Not in this thread, but it has before.

It's not against the rules, or filtered! So don't worry, you're not breaking any rules. :) But some of us (myself included) have been made aware of the word's less-than-savory roots, so we feel uncomfortable using it on a child-safe board, where someone's feelings could be hurt. I just want everyone to feel comfortable on the Arena! So I like to use other, cuter nicknames for her- like Bubbles, or Bubblecup, or Grey Bubbles Pegasus. ;)

It really depends on what YOU think it means for it to be offensive. I think it means crossed eyes or eyes looking the wrong way, or silly/goofy. But that's just my opinion. Other people see it as other meanings that are not appropriate.

I never saw her as "mentally challenged" or anything like that. That's society trying to ruin everything by being "politically correct". You can make negative connotations for everything if you look hard enough.

I just look at her as silly and goofy. Clutzy and ditzy. Meaning well, but not always being able to do things right.

so what she does is  a  stop mail thing.  where they hold ALL  your mail at hte post office. then you go and get  e'm and   put your mail back on regualr deilvery.  i think i might get fussed at about the rather large TRU box though ><

I agree with this.  I think they will create merchandise with her on it.  I don't know if they would make a pony for sale at all toy stores but they will be producing something somewhere.  Maybe it will be in the hard plastic hair form.

Well her fan name is :muffin: Pony. In an episode of FiM, they mentioned a "feather brained Pegasus" named Ditzy Doo, so the animators considered that as her name. In the episode "The Last Round Up", Rainbow Dash called her ":muffin: Pony" and parents freaked out, so they changed it. So neither name is canon, but most bronies call her :muffin: Pony. Some people find :muffin: Pony offensive and call her Ditzy Doo. I personally prefer a combination of both, DerpyDoo.

here i am ont he thread.. but  dont throw fakies at me...i'm askign out of genral curiosuaity. what is the big deal with her? i mean why do you guys call her Ditzy Doo or Ditzy Doo hooves?  or ditzy do or whatever?

i dont really watch FIM i only watched a couple of the episodes..  (the zecora ones)  and  the tribble (parasprites one) so i'm curious..

She was a background pony that drew attention for her crossed eyes. There is a meme on some forums that involves showing a person with crossed eyes, and the word ':muffin: Pony' so her fan name was :muffin: Pony Hooves.  In the episode The Last Roundup, Rainbow Dash calls her by said fan name, thus making it canon. People flipped out, and in later showings of the episode, it was removed and she's not called anything. If you look on knowyourmeme for ":muffin: Pony" you'll get some background on the word and it's rather innocent beginnings.  It doesn't mean what a lot of people take it to mean, unfortunately, because a lot of people do see it that way, it's considered offensive on these boards.

Hasbrotoyshop is being goofy for me too. 

So I checked my times that I was on the site, 12:00-12:03 I was constantly refreshing, then comes the person in asking me about lunch and I checked at 12:19 in which she was already sold out! smack head on computer!

As im sitting here constantly checking hasbro site I start having visions of next time I groom my Cavalier King Charles (Chloe) turing her into a fluffy living version of :muffin: Pony :P

So I got a response back from my email message and it's pretty obvious that it's a copy and paste statement and that they actually didn't read the entire contents of my message. :(  Crummy day is crummy.

To whom it may concern,

I'm writing today just to express my absolute disappointment in glitches or errors in the website that kept several people from being able to attempt to by con exclusives before they sold out.

Like many people I had been checking the site (and other sites that were watching the Hasbro Toy shop for updates) for the past two days, and I just happened to be lucky enough to refresh just as she was put up.  I proceeded to try and buy her.  I clicked 'proceed to checkout' atleast 15 times, but my subtotal remained at $0 and it just kept taking me to the same page.  I thought perhaps it was a mistake so I deleted the item and added it again.  Once again I clicked many times only to have nothing happen.  Finally I thought perhaps the problem had to do with Paypal being my payment type, so I went into my account information and added a credit card in and tried again.  Again nothing would happen, always a subtotal of $0 even as people around me are claiming to have gotten not just one of her but two and three.

Finally after she was totally sold out a few people figured out that the problem had to do with the fact that we were already logged into our Hasbro Toy Store accounts, and that logging off and relogging in fixed the $0 glitch.  But of course this was long after she was already sold out.

 I've been a customer of Hasbro and My Little Pony for years.  I've bought from the website many times (including one big order of 10-15 of the blank ponies) just as a for instance.  So I'm absolutely furious that the reason I was unable to get the Comic con pony is 'because' I am a previous customer and was already signed into the site.  Repeat customers should have the same, if not a better chance at things in my opinion, not be penalized.

I have also seen many people stating that they ordered more then 1 pony despite the one per household limit, which I'm sure helped a lot in how quickly she sold out.  This is entirely unfair and, even if I don't manage to get one myself, I really hope as a company that you hold to your word and make sure it stays 1 per household, and cancel out those duplicate orders.

I'm sorry if any of the message was harsh, I'm just really upset at the whole exclusive situation and drama considering how quickly she sold out (at the fair, at SDCC, and now on the website).  If I had missed her because I wasn't around it wouldn't have been that big of a deal, but to miss her because of a website glitch is heartbreaking.

Thank you for your time

Hello,

Thank you for your e-mail and for your interest in HasbroToyShop.com.  We do apologize for your troubles in ordering this year’s exclusive San Diego Comic Con items from HasbroToyShop.com.  Due to high volumes of activity on the website on July 18th, many people were unable to secure the exclusive item(s) that they were trying to order. Unfortunately, when an item is placed in a customer’s cart, the item is not reserved for that customer until the order has been completely placed and the customer receives the order number.  Therefore, if a customer added an item to their cart and by the time the customer was able to check out with their order the item was no longer available, this means the item was unfortunately sold out in the meantime. Unfortunately, there is no reserved stock of the exclusive Comic Con items and once they are sold out on HasbroToyShop.com, there will be no more available as these items were made in limited quantities and will not be restocked at any time. We would like to apologize for the long hold time that customers experienced during the afternoon on July 18th as there was an inundation of phone calls of customers with questions and concerns in regards to the Comic Con exclusives.  Customer satisfaction is very important to us and we always strive to answer phone calls from every customer as soon as we are able. Again, we apologize that many customers were unable to place orders for the exclusive items they wanted to purchase.  These items are made in limited quantities as they are exclusive to the Comic Con convention and a small amount are reserved to be sold from HasbroToyShop.com after the convention for customers who were unable to attend. We are working with our corporate offices and technical support teams to be better prepared for the release of the Comic Con exclusive items on HasbroToyShop.com after next year’s convention.

HasbroToyShop.com will be cancelling all orders that went over our clearly stated cart limits. We apologize again for any inconveniences the website issues and long hold times caused on July 18th.  If there is anything else we can assist you with, please let us know.

We greatly appreciate your business.  If you have additional questions, please visit our website, www.HasbroToyShop.com, or contact our Customer Service Center via e-mail at CustomerService@HasbroToyShop.com or phone at 1-800-408-0052. (8 AM - 8 PM EST, Monday - Friday and 10 AM - 6:30 PM EST, Saturday)

Sincerely yours,

Canon in this context means that it's generally accepted as the real name.  A Brony is a non-traditional fan of My Little Pony, generally male fans of Friendship is Magic, and the females are referred to as Pegasisters in that fandom.

I got the same exact response Iris.  You would think a company of Hasbro's size would of been able to put in place a block on accounts once one of each the comic con items has been bought from it, same with CC#'s and addresses.  Other sites that have had exclusives of things have done this before.

"Ditzy Doo hooves" is the result of the forum word filter changing ":muffin: Pony hooves"

"Canon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_%28basic_principle%29)" (not "cannon") means something is accepted officially (originally by the Catholic church - when they "canonize" a saint or whatever means the church officially accepts it into the teachings). The term is used for any mythos or story universe to mean that the creators/controllers of that story universe accept that as part of the universe. Things that aren't canon can be said to be part of the "fanon" instead (meaning it is accepted by at least some fans). See also headcanons (http://mlparena.com/mlp/index.php/topic,295215.0.html) (things you personally accept in your version of the story in your own head).

(Canon the company that makes cameras/lenses presumably wants to present 'the real image of the world' in their products I guess.)

"Brony" (from "Bro" + "pony") is the name for the (mostly-male) fans of MLP FiM. "Pegasister" is a possible female version of the term, but many just use "Brony" as non-gender-specific (since "pegasister" is so silly sounding and a later invention).

Good News Everyone!! (well for you guys, not for my sisters though)
As you may have heard, I ordered 3 separate Ditzy Doos to the same address (one for me, the others for my sisters). Two of them were cancelled while the other one says "not shipped". Hasbro must be canceling multiple orders now, which means those who did not get one the first time have another chance to get her!!! I am just glad they did not completely cancel all of my orders!  ^^; :good:
Oh, that's a relief. I've been worried sick about my own order as well ever since I found out about the limit. So, so glad I made them separate orders. :D

I ordered a second one as a spur-of-the-moment sort of thing. Ordering the first one was so painless, I thought, why not? I could have two! One to open and an extra to keep MIB. But after seeing so many people having problems and missing out, I felt so freaking lousy about it (like I was a big fat pony hog) that I had made up my mind to sell my extra on the arena if I got her. I do apologize for being selfish... it's really not my nature. :redface:

I do wish everyone the best of luck when she goes back in stock. I hope you all get one!  :hug:

I kind of feel silly now for spending as much as I did on the SDCC pony... I told my friend and she said that was a lot for one pony... and also said there will probably be a general release... but in a FS that wouldn't make sense to me, because then the SDCC is nothing special

I think, if they ever re-release her, it would be A) pretty unlikely and B) different enough from the SDCC pony that it would still be worth it to have both. Like, she might be a standard-sized brushable, or she might have forward-facing eyes, or something like that. So I don't think you have to worry about wasting money. :) It's only a waste if you think it's a waste!

I think as a general rule, SDCC exclusives aren't released generally, because that makes them not "exclusive" anymore.  I have seen, with Uglydolls for example, that sometimes the same SDCC exclusive is also offered at the NY Comic Con in the fall.

I basically sent them back a message saying that there generic copy and pasted response did nothing to answer the problem with people getting glitches during checkout.  That if customer service was truly their number one priority then they would be doing something more to assure us that this problem will not happen again the the future, and that they would be nice to offer those with cart glitches that caused them to miss out first chance at the cancelled orders.

As for those that ordered 2 or three without realizing the limit, don't feel bad about it.  The thing I think that is frustrating most people are the resellers, not those that had the good intentions of getting one for a friend or for those overseas.  I'm watching eBay like a hawk right now and I am betting in a few days there are going to be sellers with 5-6 of them because they managed to trick the system even with Hasbro deleting multiple orders. 

Just crossings fingers that when/if she goes back up all of us dissapointed will have a better chance.

I never saw her as "mentally challenged" or anything like that. That's society trying to ruin everything by being "politically correct". You can make negative connotations for everything if you look hard enough.

Imo you can't be too "politically correct" about anything. Because being "politically correct" actually means being courteous to all peoples, not just what one person (myself) thinks. If people raise an objection it shouldn't be dismissed just because "you yourself" isn't personally offended. It might offend someone else. I personally find that being "politically correct" = not being an arse.

I checked this thread on my phone at work and could not believe Bubbles was sold out so fast. My mind is seriously blown. I can't believe one is being shipped (from eBay) right now...I never get this HTF stuff. Everything I get is usually rubbish o_0

Wow!  Maybe they didn't make all that many of her?  I am really surprised about how fast everything sold out.  Normally I get a few after con exclusives on HTS.  I didn't trust getting :muffin: Pony, so I bought a pre-order at the lowest ebay price I found (which actually wasn't too bad), but to get nothing is so crazy.  Like I said, I am glad I thought ahead a bit this year.

Sorry, guys. Someone posted this on Equestria Daily Comments (page 2):

Quote
I spoke to hasbrotoyshop representatives and was informed these points

They are completely sold out of ponies and will not be selling or making any more.

There was a limit of one per household.

Those that tried to purchase multiples will have their orders cut to only 1.

There is a waiting list that is to be used in case anyone tried to purchase multiples, those remainders will go to the people on the list and they will be contacted.

Finally, The waiting list is full. They have the almost the amount of people on the list as there were toys that were available

So for those of you that PHONED hasbrotoyshop and put your name on the list, there still might be hope to get one.

Did anyone get on this so called "waiting list"? I know a few of you contacted Hasbro costumer service.

That is odd because most people that I know who phoned in said there was no waiting list and that any others will be going back on the Hasbro website.  You would think if there was a waiting list someone here would be on it.  Oh well maybe once the mad rush of people panicking a turning to eBay is over her prices will come down on there.

I did manage to buy one when she went on sale this afternoon because I wanted to snag her while I could to pass on to someone. I figured even if I wasn't buying her for me I should try and get one while I could to at least keep it in the arena community rather than a reseller getting it. She's already been promised a new home with an arena member who has been trying to get a hold of her for ages, so I feel great that I was able to help them out :)

It's true this wouldn't be the first time Hasbro has told us conflicting information (maybe some customer service reps knew about the waiting list and others didn't?) but I find it doubtful. I think it's much more likely there's a troll on ED and/or the Transformers forums spreading false rumors to get people's hopes up or to make themselves feel better for missing out.

Yeah, maybe.

What I am wondering is why Hasbro spelled the "little" in my little pony as "LITTLY". I didn't see her at first because I searched "my little pony", and she didn't come up. It could just be a spelling error, or perhaps a way to avoid a huge rush, crashing their servers. I'm sure a lot of people who searched "my little pony" and weren't following forums didn't notice her until she sold out.

It surprises me that Hasbro wouldn't do another run of her if they were looking for profits.  I mean they sold out at the fair, and at the comic con very very quickly then sold out online faster then I think even they anticipated. I know it would anger some people because it would decrease the value but honestly as a collector I don't do it for the value of my stuff.  It's because they remind me of a happy carefree time of my life.  At $20 a pony they could make a killing just making 500-1000 more of them.

She's an EXCLUSIVE!  What part of that are people not grasping.  They make these ponies as a treat for special events. They won't be re-run, or they wouldn't be exclusive any more.  There is a very slim chance she may show up on shelves in Singapore or somewhere like that, but that kind of thing is never intentional on Hasbro's behalf.  The exclusives ALWAYS sell out.  If you think that they will do it because she's more popular than previous years ponies, look at other lines of exclusives.  GI Joe and Transformers are ALWAYS as popular as this pony is this year, they NEVER re-run them. 

Sorry if I sound snarky, but it really isn't going to happen.  The best you can hope for is a design change, or a brushable.  But there is a reason they chose to do this pony for the cons, so I doubt that will happen too.

i just ended up buying on on ebay for $60. it annoys me that i went to the orlando pony con, and came home without the exclusive.. now the toy shop is sold out. i just figure if they come available again. ill pop her back onto ebay..

And as it turns out, $60 isn't that bad (that sounds awful...!). She wound up costing me $30 with shipping and sales tax, and it will wind up costing my UK pony pal (who I got her for; fortunately got mine at the fair with ticket package) closer to, I'm guessing, $50 til we add postage for that giant box. Ugh.

I basically sent them back a message saying that there generic copy and pasted response did nothing to answer the problem with people getting glitches during checkout. 

Having worked in customer service for a website, I know what it's like first hand.  You have to imagine how many emails you have to answer EVERY DAY.  It's hundreds upon hundreds, and that's all you do all day.  Everyone keeps asking about the same 4 things, they are often pissed at something that you personally had nothing to do with, and it just takes WAY too much time to answer every email individually.  I made my own form letters for all the basics, because it was the only way to respond to everyone.  Otherwise, you would be waiting for weeks.  I don't think you can blame a company as big as hasbro for using form letters.  And they did reply to you saying that they were working to improve it for next year's comic con.

It surprises me that Hasbro wouldn't do another run of her if they were looking for profits.  I mean they sold out at the fair, and at the comic con very very quickly then sold out online faster then I think even they anticipated. I know it would anger some people because it would decrease the value but honestly as a collector I don't do it for the value of my stuff.  It's because they remind me of a happy carefree time of my life.  At $20 a pony they could make a killing just making 500-1000 more of them.

I seriously doubt that they would do that (at leats not a FS).  In fact, I would be shocked.  It defeats the point of making an exclusive, and I've never seen hasbro re-release an exclusive anything.  Just think of the hype, and all the other items that were sold on the HTS while people were waiting.  From a marketing standpoint, it worked  well for them.

I hope the prices come down in the following weeks, for those of you who missed out.  I'm sure the prices are about at their peek.  Good luck!!

I missed out on her as well :( I've been stalking Hasbro's website (and lurking on this thread) since early Monday morning. But she went up sometime between when I left for work this morning and my first break. The extra crappy thing is that my dad was checking HTS all day for me yesterday too, when I was at work, and he would have been home to do that today too except that he went to visit my grandma today (instead of Thursday when he ALWAYS goes) so if he hadn't rescheduled with my grandma, he might have been able to snag one for me. My friend who went to Comic Con was also unable to get one for me. What a bummer. At least I'm in good company though, lol. Congratulations to the lucky few who got her, and my sympathies to the rest of us :P

I'd like to see an alternate release with a different packaging maybe? I'm guessing the regular release of Zecora will be in a differently styled box than her SDCC version. I'm sure Hasbro has learnt how many people want to own (Bubblecup), and it's not Hasbro is getting all the profits scalpers are making. I'm maybe being a bit overly hopeful, but it's all I can do.

There's no way Hasbro will make another run of her in Fashion Styling form . . . Maybe they will eventually make her in blind bag or in smaller brushable form, or a Fashion Styling of her with different color hair or body or something..  But not in this form.  She's an exclusive, her purpose is not to make as much money as possible from selling lots of units of her, but to serve as a neat, limited figure.

If Hasbro did another run of her, it would erode confidence in every exclusive they put out in the future in every one of their fandoms.

Hopefully no one is taking it out on the customer service reps as I know they are not at fault.  The problem is when they send out a mass email you wonder how many are actually getting read and how many changes are actually going to be made at corporate.  I have been collecting for many many years now and have seen Hasbro screw over customers a lot, and all they ever say is sorry, too bad for you.

I'm with you here, Eevee. Exclusive items are limited edition items. Exclusive items sell out. That is kind of the whole point.  They are not designed to me made in mass numbers so everyone can get them. Sure it's always disappointing when people who really want one didn't get one, but that's just part of the game. We do what we can to get them ourselves and to help out our fellow collectors, but at the end of the day when it's gone it's gone. I think a lot of people just didn't expect it so fast with this years pony because the previous years haven't sold an insanely fast, but they still sell out eventually and they don't remake them.

When you think about it, the brushable Sweetie Swirl doesn't actually have a name does she? She's just "Bonus Unicorn Pony" in Rarity's carousel. Maybe we will see a Ditzy bonus pony packaged with Rainbow Dash's Hypothetical Airborn Fashion Show or something! The kids love Rainbow Dash!

I wonder if the popularity will fade with the non collectors or people who just want the popular ponies and couldn't care less about the others out there, where will those "grey Pegasus ponies" go. I'm sure they'll move onto something else, and she'll end up in thrift shops or ruined...idk, just a thought.

As a thought, what if they did release a normal fashion style :muffin: Pony?

But she'd be exclusive to the site, but in normal Fashion style boxing, and in the style of a fashion style with some fashions and maybe muffin barrettes to wear?  And to tell them apart, the cutie mark would go on the opposite side, and the eyes could be flip-flopped as well (The one pointing up points down and the one pointing down points up)  Love to see maybe a Brushable sized one as well!!

I mean, yeah sure Transformers big Comic Con toy this year was Bruticus, but he has normal releases as well.  Just not quite the same as the comic con version, my theory is kind of the same concept.  same pony, just altered enough for people to look and say 'Oh, that is a retail version.'

I'm sure people who got her know her value (they had to pay at least $20 to get her after all), so when those types of people get bored with her no doubt she'll go up on ebay rather than thrift shops.

I'm in the same boat right now lol. eBay is tempting because I know she's there, but the prices are nuts. Last year's exclusives are down to pretty reasonable prices, and I'm hoping she'll do the same eventually.

There is NO indication at ALL that Hasbro will be doing another toy of Ditzy, or featuring her on any merchandise. In the past Hasbro has never done anything like that with their exclusives.

People in this thread are just doing wishful thinking, hoping she'll be released again in the future in some way. But there's been no indication this will be the case.

Indeed it is confusing!

Then that settles it, unless the prices drop down (which I doubt that it would be much if at all), my best bet would be to hire a customizer then.

I am still wondering if the MLP Fair sticker on her box makes her more rare/valuable than the box with the comic con logo. I saw a BIN on eBay with the fair sticker that was $175, so maybe it's rarer since they only made about 200 of them?

 Also, I noticed that the Fair sticker on mine is under the "2012" on the back while the sticker on the ones on eBay are in the lower left corner. Did Hasbro put the sticker on or did MLP Fair staff?

See, thats the story :) my friend said he had a poster liek this and I was like "I need it!!" but then I saw it and I was kinda disappointed (no offense to the original artist) So I did my own version! It was done as a gift, I just think it suits the situation!! ^_^

I want one so bad but $100+ is just ridiculous. I`m tempted to hire a customizer make one...It`ll be way cheaper and I`ll be able to have a Ditzy Doo. But judging form a couple of posts I read here, is there going to be a non-limited edition version release in the future?

I bought a custom :muffin: Pony from eBay. I'm still waiting for her to ship though   :lookround:
I think it's the best option at the moment though. Or waiting a while for the prices to come down. IDK. It's hard to judge how many there are and how many people will want to get rid of etc.

Just as a point of interest, the new 3-pack blind bag figure sets are now on Hasbro Toyshop, listed as "coming soon".  I hope they get more pony goodies up there soon!

Post by: nessa16 on July 19, 2012, 03:55:15 PM
My mom was a bit taken back that I'd spent a total of $30 on Ditzy.  "OMG! Isn't that kinda high for a pony?!"  I pulled up my ebay app on my phone and went to rattling off ended auction prices.  One went for just under $160.  She thought I did pretty darn good after that! XD

My husband was kind of that way even though I had told him beforehand how much she was.  I also told him if I didn't get her I would not be paying the ebay prices.  When he gave me "the look" when I said how much she was, I told him how much she was going for on ebay right now.  Then he said "So, are you going to sell her?"  It kind of irritates :enraged: me that he seems to think my collecting is secondary to making money on the rare or hard to get ones if I end up being able to get one.  I told him no, I want her for my collection.  He didn't say anything more but it just irks me that that is the first thing that always comes to mind for him.  That's like me asking if he is going to sell all his hunting stuff.

I'm nervous. My HTS purchase hasn't shown up in my bank account yet. I'm going to cross my fingers and hope that I'm just being paranoid.

I actually emailed a rep with my order number and they got back to me right away saying it was processed.  I don't think they will charge your card until the item actually ships.  That has been my experience anyway.

Yay :accomplished: :happy: :frolic: :good: to those who were able to snag her...she sold out super fast again :whoa:!

I think they are canceling orders that have the same credit card address. It doesn't matter WHERE they are shipped, just what address is on the credit card.

They said they were checking credit card info, so as long as you used different payment methods, it should be fine.

So assuming different credit cards held by different people with the shipping to different addresses (But you live together and used the same account) would be fine?  Like if you had a family member buy one for a friend and you bought one for yourself?

Post by: SurfStar on July 19, 2012, 04:28:47 PM
Honestly,

I'm just super happy that more of them seemed to make their way into collector's hands! I'm also happy that the extra that I snagged is going to make some child very happy (I was trying to get one for her)... because at the end of the day, Ditzy is still a toy and I'd rather see people be happy than upset.

We've got a lot of amazing folks here on the Arena and I'm sure that some of us that ordered extras will sell them to other collectors too. I know that for me that was the only reason I was even trying. So I could try and help out someone else that wasn't quite lucky enough to get one.

I :heart: you guys here, I personally, think that we are one of the best collecting communities and we pull together to help each other out.

Edit:

Also I'm a little sad Jem didn't show back up, just as I convinced myself that I would spend that much on her XD

I was able to snag one as well, as a random check while at work.  Problem was I was in the middle of something!  Then I get to the CC info and didn't realize I needed the security code!  Luckly I also had PayPal linked on the account.

For those that missed, I did get a much better response from.  They said she will be going up in small groups as the cancel extra orders.  I'll keep a eye out and try to grab another of she goes back up with a cc and a different address for people here who have missed out.

I was starting to think that Hasbro and the scalpers had officially made :muffin: Pony impossible to get for a reasonable price. Many congrats! I wanna see pics when yall get them home!

I work tomorrow, but ill try to keep a eye out for her going up and order another under a different address and payment.  If all is successful I'll pass her onto a collector here who missed her.  Thank goodness for a iPhone and a boss who doesn't care if I keep mine on me :)

Yiiiikes. I should've stalked more, but I've been busy. Hopefully I can get one of the cancelled ones tomorrow because after standing in line and getting so close at the Fair I really would like to own her. But honestly I can't afford to pay as much as she's going for on eBay, $60+ is too much :P

Not yet.  Looking at my account the past two years when I bought the exclusives, they shipped 5 days after I first placed the order.  Lol, that's the only charges showing.  Comic Con Ponies from 2010 and 2011 XD  Shows how much I actually purchase online!

We are expecting another small batch tomorrow, probably around noon Eastern.

I feel like I must be misinterpreting something here.

As far as I can tell, Hasbro had a "one Ditzy per person" rule, presumably to give everyone an equal chance at getting one, and/or to prevent scalpers from buying up all of them on the spot. Seems fair to me. And then I see this thread, full of people who are actually bragging about breaking that rule by using multiple shipping addresses. Nobody minds that? Really? I've no interest in Ditzy personally, but judging from the 80+ pages of this thread, there were a LOT of people who really wanted one but didn't get one. Placing a second order using a different credit card is kind of like getting a free sample at the grocery store, then going around a corner and putting on a mustache and hat, then getting back in line for another free sample. Except in this case the free sample is a very sought-after (and not free) pony.

I dunno. I'm not even involved in this. *wanders away*

I think some people are buying for friends and siblings or to offer up in here presumably at cost so the scalpers dont get them all.  That is why they are getting extras (or trying to).  And some have expressed guilt at ordering more than one.

But let's not start a disturbance here.  This so far has been the nicest set of collectors I have seen online!

Yep,  if I manage to get a second one it's not even shipping to my household, it's shipping straight to the person I offered to help, makes
It cheaper for them and then I don't have to find time to goto the post office.  I think everyone who is trying to get more then one on this post is trying to get them to stay in the pony community and help those who work or have other obligations at the time she may go up for sale.  That way we are also not supporting those who quadruple the price on eBay.

Well, I'm trying to get another one for my sister. I know many people here are trying to get multiples for friends, siblings, and other Arena members. After all, it's better for the :muffin: Ponies to go to an Arena member/collector than a scalper/reseller.

There are exactly 80 on eBay. The cheapest is just over $40 if someone want's to go that route and snag her.

ETA: She is a buy it now and I made a mistake she is $53.99 including shipping.

That's actually not too bad since she ends up being $30 and some change after shipping and taxes on the hasbro shop.

Oh yes, I do know about the security code now. When I first ordered from my mom's account on Wednesday I had to type it in, and good thing my mom has the world's easiest security code. It's three of the same number so I remembered it from past online orders. But if it was different I would have been in trouble, lol. My mom wrote down my grandma's security code so if I ever do see Ditzy Doo in stock again I could easily order one for my sister's (late) birthday present.

If I'd gotten a $20 volderpmort she'd come out of the package as fast as I could open the box.  Unfortunately, that's not the case, so now I feel like I have to leave her in!  lol, isn't that stupid? I have a hard time opening things though. Almost none of my g4 collection has been taken out of the box, and that's a looooot of ponies.

I HIGHLY recommend saving the box, even if you unbox her . . . it can be flattened to save space.  It's so lovely and I'm sure eventually you will be able to sell it for a few bucks, even without the pony inside.

I got my :muffin: Pony today as well, and after taking some photos of her MIB I went ahead and took her out. I'm not a MIB collector at all (I love playing with my ponies and brushing their hair) and I have no plans to resell her so keeping her at top value isn't a huge factor for me, but even I had that moment of... oh gosh I want to free her so bad but should I really??  Her packaging is relatively easy to gently open though, you just need to cut a strip of tape on one side of the box and the tape holding the plastic attached to her hair and she's out.  I personally find that having her + her lovely box still in good condition and being able to put her back in it if I wanted to display her that way (even if she is no longer mint in a never opened box) preferable to keeping her sealed in the box forever. That is just my personal preference for collecting though, I'm sure many people will be keeping her MIB and that is perfectly fine as well.   ^.^

I'm not a mib collector, and everyone else has been freed from their prisons, but I still have last year's in box, so she'll probably be the same.  I guess I consider the box as part of her display, and in that case it's easier to keep her in it and save shelf space XD  Maybe I'll cave someday, but for now, she'll probably stay in it.

One of my sisters got her Ditzy Doo from eBay today in the mail. She was extremely excited and asked me to de-box her. Well, we already have a MIB Ditzy Doo from MLP Fair, so why not? And I had gotten really good at de-boxing ponies without ruining the packaging.

It was acually pretty easy to de-box her.  ^.^ Just carefully peeled off the tape on the side without the CC sticker and pulled out the cardboard. Then I peeled off the tape that attached her hair to the cardboard and removed her from the bottom plastic very carefully. Ditzy Doo was finally FREEEEE!!

I can honestly say she looks about 10 times more adorable outside her box. If you want to de-box her then I say go for it, but if you want to keep her MIB that's ok too. I will be de-boxing mine when she arrives, and if I am able to snag one for my other sis she will want to de-box it too. We already have one from MLP Fair MIB that we share as a family.

And oh yes, and be sure to save the box after you open her!!!  ^.^

I admit that the only remorse I have about her is that I feel a bit bad for people who waited in line and never got one. :( But she's super cute, and I really like her mane! No really... I love the lemonade-yellow color. It makes me think of G3 Moondancer.

Of course I deboxed her, but I'll take extra special care of her. :) But of course, I gotta give her some attention too...

Well, I hope if the re-re-list her tomorrow, that those of you who have missed out completely so far get one.

Well, I hope if the re-re-list her tomorrow, that those of you who have missed out completely so far get one.

At MLP Fair I was originally planning to get 2 for myself (one to open, one to keep MIB) and each of my sisters were planning to buy one. I got ONE with my ticket package and when we got in line, they sold out. So we went home with one. We decided to share it and keep it MIB while displaying it in our living room.

Well the Sunday after Comic Con my mom and sister camped out on HTS. Of course she didn't show up, and my sister didn't want to risk not getting one, so she paid my mom to buy her one on eBay. At that point we were so sure that she wasn't going up at all, since she sold out at the con. Later in the week I joined the camp out on MLP Arena for :muffin: Pony to try to get one for myself. I was lucky and was able to order ONE on Wednesday. I tried to order two more but the others got cancelled.

I now realize that if the other orders went through, we would have gotten extras. My sister and I have quite a few friends who are huge fans of FiM that would love to get a :muffin: Pony, so if we did get extras we would give them to our friends for the price of the pony+shipping.

So right now that is a total of 3 :muffin: Ponies. I am going to the movies tomorrow for my sister's birthday and will not be online around the time they usually go up. I probably won't be able to get one for my youngest sis, but she doesn't care as much for FiM as my other sister does. So, yeah. That's my whole story. 3 :muffin: Ponies. One for MIB display and the others for our personal collections. And we got each one from 3 different sources: MLP Fair, eBay, and HTS. I think that's pretty fair for one household.

Post by: DancingPhoenix on July 20, 2012, 07:33:37 AM
I'm not going to hate on anyone, because I understand wanting to have one to brush and play with and then another to keep mint in the box... but when talking about a pony that is becoming increasingly harder to get and that is quite sought after in this community and in others, I would certainly not buy two for myself (one for display and one for play).

I was lucky to snag a deal on last year's exclusive and the FiM poster on eBay, and I removed the girl from her box and brushed her hair and made it look good, but I keep her in the box for display. All I did to the box was open it and remove the tape and plastic thing from her mane and tail. She still displays wonderfully and looks much nicer with her hair at her side rather than pulled back against the cardboard! So just something if you're not sure :)

I'm personally going to try my darndest to get my Ditzy tomorrow morning, but it will be rough because I'm pretty sure they'll be releasing her while I'm at an appointment. I refuse to let her elude me this badly, I refuse to let her win XD

I got an email from HasbroToyShop (at like 1:30am, strangely) saying mine shipped, but I can't figure out how to track it since it doesn't say how it was shipped. It's not a USPS tracking number, nor a UPS tracking. I'm not sure about FedEx but I don't think it is either. Anyone know how to track her? I have a really odd sleeping schedule, so I like to know when to expect packages so I can be awake and waiting for them.

Bragging (or even chatting) about getting multiple exclusives, in a thread where a lot of people got none, is really not cool, IMHO. What you do with your money is your own business - but you open yourself up to attack when you go bandying it about in public. And I'm not gonna feel bad if you feel "hurt" about it, either.

I'm camping the **** out of it this time. I left yesterday because I was told it would be weeks before this mess was "sorted out." Eff off, Hasbroken, next time I'm doing all my shopping from Taobao. >:I

(Also, in other sore-loser news, if anyone has a double? I would REALLY, REALLY love to buy it from them. :( And I would be happy to repay the favor in any way possible.)

I just got a shipping notification!  So, they're starting to send her out now. :D


I plan on taking pictures of her MIB then opening her up.  When she was first announced, I had hoped to get two so I could keep one MIB, but after seeing how hard it was to get her, I decided I'd pass any extras on to the community at cost.  Of course, I was only able to get one anyway.

Um, how is it wrong for each sibling in the same house to have a pony? How is that any different than if they each had their own house and bought one? It'd still be the same number of people having the same number of :muffin: Ponies.  This isn't one person taking five and hoarding them; so, please, let's stay civil on the matter.

In other news, I also got a shipping notification from Hasbro! That sure seems faster than their shipping turnaround on previous exclusive ponies. Can't wait for my Muffin Queen to arrive!

This. I don't have siblings, but I can't imagine having to split up my collection someday just because a collector somewhere else was mad that I went out of my way to ensure that my siblings got one.

I would appreciate that very much, thank you. :)

I don't think it's wrong for everyone in the house to have an exclusive; I think it is a sweet and worthwhile endeavor, as I have siblings as well, and I have often hunted like crazy for ponies that they wanted. (Lemme tell you, finding three CMC sets last Christmas was tough!) But I do feel it is in poor taste, when many people are still smarting from the "loss" of a pony they wanted very badly (not that anyone 'deserves' the pony more than anyone else, of course), to be discussing how many ponies you got, or how excited you are to have a pony. Yes, we're all happy for you; but it's difficult to be happy when you are still sitting here with no pony. Perhaps this is not the best thread to be happy in? Especially if we still have members who are actively hunting for said pony. Why don't we start a group-brag thread instead? :)

Maybe I'm just being oversensitive here - but this is the 'stalking Ditsy' thread, not the 'bragging about Ditsy' thread. But, like I said - you are free to do as you want, everyone has the right to free speech. But other people have the right to call you out on what you say, as well.

I really only bought ONE off of HTS, so you guys still have an equal chance of getting her that way. If I made anyone angry, I am very sorry. I am not trying to brag, I was just trying to clear up my story to ButtercreamDream.  I did go to MLP Fair after all, the only other place where they were selling them in person. Some people who went to Comic Con came home with three PER PERSON, and I think that's unfair too. Siblings still count as people you know. We are getting the same number of ponies as siblings, so it is still one per person.

I wish the best of luck to those who didn't get one!!! I really hope you are able to snag one today!

Why did they have to use FedEx? :cry: I hate FedEx. They always run half way up the driveway and toss my package up on the steps, then run back to the truck. They never knock or anything so unless I just happen to be watching for them, I wouldn't know my package was there and it would get stolen. And packages that need signatures are even worse because they pre fill out the little notice about how they missed you, stick it on the door without knocking and run back to the truck. Sometimes they don't even bother, they just mark it as "attempted delivery" even when they didn't. Well, the tracking says it should be delivered on the 25th (why does it take so long, anyway? UPS would only be like 3-4 days) so I'll be sitting near the window and as soon as I see the FedEx truck, I'll be running to the door. I'm not taking any chances.

I got my pony from Ebay yesterday, and just got the notification that my HTS one has shipped.  I never expected to get one from HTS so I went the Ebay route, paying a bit too much for her.  But I don't need two, so I'll be listing the Ebay one up on there again, starting her at the same price I paid. 
She really is a cutie, I can't wait to get my other one so I can finally debox one. ^^

I've had problems with Fedex deliveries at home and at my office. It can be such a pain getting my package from them if I'm not around to receive it. The worst tale I have to tell deals with what happened at my job. They had attempted to drop off a huge pile of packages but some how didn't buzz our office (?!?!) and instead crossed off our address and changed it to one that happened to be the local UPS store! A rival company! They didn't even leave notification! If it wasn't for the nice manager at the UPS store looking up our office's phone number we would of never gotten them. My boss went to town on them! We where all so upset by the whole situation.

I do however try to keep perspective on this situation. In the Chicago area pretty much all forms of package and postal delivery have a reputation for being a giant P.I.T.A. I'm sure the majority of people will have no problems with Fedex and receive their package from Hasbro. This is just one crazy instance of negligence and overall for the amount of deliveries Fedex makes in a week let alone a year this sort of thing is probably pretty rare. We get at least 5-8 Fedex/UPS guys up here a day delivering printing proofs, samples and client info. The vast majority of the time nothing goes wrong. I'm sure a lot of it has to do with whoever runs our local Fedex delivery service.

I'd just buy my one! One is all I want for my collection :)
But if I was able to buy another I would get it for my friend Pristine (who may go by something else here). She was with me at the Fair when we were trying to get a Ditzy for ourselves and a few members of the Arena. And she also went to SDCC and they were sold out by the time she got up there again. So she should definitely get one!

She was unable to give any info regarding when more :muffin: Ponies will be in. Sounds like they do have limited quantities, and are trying to stretch out the first batch. Im sure there will be plenty to go around quite soon, and then they'll lift the one per household thing.

She was unable to give any info regarding when more Ditzy Doos will be in. Sounds like they do have limited quantities, and are trying to stretch out the first batch. Im sure there will be plenty to go around quite soon, and then they'll lift the one per household thing. Btw, the lady sounded quite stressed from all the Ditzy Doo calls, i bet she's having a loooooong day!

Thank you so much for the info! I wonder if I should still stalk all day then?

I highly doubt they're going to lift the 'one per household' limit at all.  Sorry guys.

When I ordered mine it said in the e-mail that they'd send you another e-mail when it has shipped.
I ordered mine with yesterday's wave, and I have not received a shipping e-mail yet.

Ebay is even worse!  While there are several auctions now around 60 or 70 dollars (which will surely end up much higher) some of the buy-it-nows are shocking.  130? 195???

I hadn't read this thread and placed 3 orders yesterday (1 for me, and 2 for fellow collectors) and two of the orders were cancelled today.  So my guess is they will have another group to sell, its just a question of WHEN!  Not that it matters much for me, I got my 1 order in, so it looks like my friends will just have to fend for themselves unfortunately.  :(  I have a love/hate relationship with the limit, its nice they are trying to make sure no one hogs them, but some people are honestly trying to help out people....not scalp them all on ebay.  I can't believe this year has gotten so bad, I wish they'd go back to the art pony mold if it would keep all the FiM scalpers at bay.

She did say though that they are very limited, duh right LOL, and that if some went back online that it's random. Not a 12:00 thing. Not sure I believe that though? There is a clear pattern in place.

All my highest bids were 70.01.  And I just got outbid on another.

I actually hope that I get outbid on all, which is what I think will happen.  With shipping, that would be 80 dollars, and that is just too much.  I am stubborn and am having trouble accepting defeat with this.   I couldn't get one Wednesday due to a computer glitch, missed out yesterday and wasted all day today refreshing the HTS site.

This is probably true because mine total after shipping was only $27.96 but we don't have any sales tax in Montana so no tax to add to the order.
