I will be selling this at the fair as well if anyone wants it. For crying out loud, since the Muffin exclusive, these things get more hideous every year. Whoever comes up with these at Hasbro needs to be fired for being stupid.

*sigh* they seem to get further and further from an actual pony. I like the box better than the product.

I actually loved the Muffin, but I've been really disappointed with the others since then.  This one's OK, I guess, but we've already had releases of Discord.  And I'm not crazy about the articulated Fluttershy.  A $50 exclusive is not likely to be deboxed for play, so why is she articulated?  I agree with Lady Starflower ... the exclusives are not really ponies anymore.  It's not really a My Little Pony without brushable hair.

My little boy would love these. Should have been a regular toy release, not an exclusive

Thats the thing almost everyone is upset about, the same Discord figure is going to be released later this year in stores. Only difference is his eyes, store release is going to have closed eyes, sdcc/fair exclusive open eyes. Its honestly really lazy imo, the Fluttershy with it isn't worth it either. Though I do like the box.

While I don't collect G4 I thought it looked like a really neat figure that at least FiM fans would be excited about. Until I learned that it's basically just a very slight variant of a figure that's already coming out. That's disappointing :( I think the packaging looks nice and it is a cool set, but I miss the days when the SDCC and Fair ponies were truly unique items.

And this is why I don't bother with the Fair/SDCC exclusive figure.  Really, the money I would spend on it can be better spent on G1 ponies.

Yes, you can! He'll be on store shelves for retail price without Fluttershy or the pretty box.

You see the problem here? :lol:

Yep, and for 1/2 the price.  The exact same Discord figure (but with slightly different eyes) will be on TRU and other shelves very soon for about $25.

My guess is that they are going to hit after the SDCC so more people will be willing to pay $50 for the exclusive packaging and bonus Fluttershy.

For once, I will not be getting the exclusive. $25 is a lot to pay for a box when I debox anyway.  And the poseable Fluttershy, which will no doubt also be released in some other form, does not make the set worth $50.

Nothing will ever compare to those beautiful brushable G3's we had but I do think this set is pretty cool! I like discord and I think their friendship is cute. Will display, in the box.

Loved and now very much miss those beautiful arty G3s. Glad I didn't spring for the exclusive this year, but the kid, being a huge fan of Discord, is super happy about his ticket package including it. :)

and apparently the single Discord, boxed, is already available on amazon dot com. REALLY? :-/

I wonder if it was put up early by mistake- since now it shows unavailable (although maybe it just sold out- likely)

When I looked it said "only 5 left" so yeah, probably sold out.

I have to agree with you on those Beautiful G3 ponies that where out! Made it even more worth it to go to a pony fair. The ones that last few years are sad :(
 I have been selling off most of my G4 ponies cause they just don't do it for me. I had a hard time getting into them and now that I see the same ones over and over I have had enough. They just look to much like deer to me.

I'm curios to find out if the Fluttershy is actually going to be an exclusive or if she will be released later as part of the Guardians of Harmony line. If Hasbro reps are there we should as them and share our knowledge here. ^.^

Post by: Galactica on July 05, 2016, 05:20:55 PM
I am curious to know that too- but it does seem VERY unlikely they are not planning to keep the Fluttershy figure for just this set.  Especially when she is almost an "accessory" in this set.

My guess is that she will come out with some kind of accessories like the rest of the Guardians of Harmony toys later, but I suppose it is possible she is exclusive.

I wonder if the Hasbro people will even know?

I liked the early run of g4, but now its all different variations of the same ponies. Ug.

Like what happened with G3 as well, except I don't expect an overhaul anytime soon due to the popularity of the show and art design. (which is fine, but yeah I loved the unique ponies in the old waves)

I also feel like I'm in the minority when I say I LOVED last year's exclusive. I am a collector of Pinkie Pie though, and her chicken costume is wonderful. This one not as big of a fan, but I don't like Discord at all so there is that too. Oh well!

Me to. Mom surprised me by buying it for me and I fell in love with it, lol. This year I told her that I hate the exclusive and showed her other things I would like instead in case she wanted to surprise me again. She got my daisy dreams and mib carriage w/ starswirl. But yeah, I wish there was more variety in G4.
