Title: Has anyone found All About Tempest Shadow? Updated 8/28 Found her
Post by: Ponyfan on May 11, 2018, 02:20:57 AM
Hi,

I was just wondering if my area is really slow on getting to the wave with Tempest or if she is still a little hard to find? My area got the Soarin wave and the Songbird wave pretty quickly but now seems to be stuck on Soarin's wave as I've found many Soarin's  only a few Songbirds and no All About Tempest toys.

I haven’t seen one of tempests around here either. But then again, I haven’t been looking too hard for one as I didn’t even know they made one of those for her. Oh now I’ll definitely be on the lookout!

wow I’d like to know too!

after seeing the movie i decided i’d pick her up if I could.

all my stores are stuck on the first two waves, though only one store had that yellow singer pony.

Nope. I've only seen Festival Foes, Spaceship a few times and Temp vs TS once.

It sounds like a lot of places are stuck on the first waves. In my area of the UK (actually, both areas) we're stuck interminably on wave 2. I haven't seen wave 1 in these areas but I know other parts had them.

No wave 3 or 4 as far as I am aware. Though Sweden having them gives me hope that maybe the shelves will change soon. I am not so fussed about Tempest but do want Songbird.

I got Songbird when I was in the US for Christmas, so sad to hear so many of you haven't gotten her yet. I was super happy to find her as I wanted her and Tempest for sure.

This is what we have here in Sweden now. I don't know who came in what waves, but we have alot of Photo Finish and Tempest:

Thanks! That was driving me crazy. XD For some odd reason, BigBadToyStore never stocked wave 3. :shrug: They have 1, 2, and 4, but skipped right over 3...

My local stores only have wave 1 and wave 2. I have seen wave 3 before, but they sold quickly. I have not seen wave 4 at all which means no tempest.

Thanks everyone. I checked several stores today and they're all still on Waves 1, 2 or 3 but I haven't seen any Songbirds for quite some time. Also no sign of the Captain Celano exclusive. Sometimes I wonder if my area has just given up on stocking new MLP toys.

Title: Re: Has anyone found All About Tempest Shadow?
Post by: WingsOfMasquerade on May 20, 2018, 06:14:31 AM
If those are Kroners then 99 of them is about 11 dollars so those are some terrible prices!
That store is probably fully stocked on ponies in that photo because no one will buy them at that rate.

I'm in FL and I saw Songbird ONCE at Target like a month ago.
She was about 7.50 or something, I was outraged and didn't pick her up. Wanted to try Walmart because they tend to be 4 or 5 dollars there which is more reasonable for a really small pony like the G4s are, and they didn't have her. Then, she just up and vanished from everywhere and never came back. Online at Ebay & Amazon...don't even bother the prices are so high for those two.

I've never once seen Tempest and she's like the most wanted one for me.
I don't really dig the new brushable look, it's very beak-like, but because her face is horsier I like it better.
I DID see the Pirate Fluttershy GOH though!
That was supposed to herald the release of Caelano also as a Walmart Exclusive? I liked her character real well in the movie & would own the doll.

Yes, 99,90 SEK is about $11 USD. ;) Things are just more expensive here than in the US, which is a major bummer. I'm from Florida myself and moved here about 5 years ago. I really miss Walmart all the time! It was so easy and cheap to get simple things there, but here it is a pain in the butt to find what I want/need and it's always expensive. I got my Songbird Serenade at a Walmart in Florida over Christmas for $5. Definitely sucks to have to pay twice as much for the same things here. >.<
Title: Re: Has anyone found All About Tempest Shadow?
Post by: Taffeta on May 20, 2018, 09:51:29 AM
There is a general trend towards things being more expensive in Europe in general, but Scandinavian countries (esp Sweden and Norway from what I've seen online) seem to be especially steep with some of these things.

Average UK price for basic brushable is £5, sometimes £5.99 in some stores...which is about $8-9ish USD. Still higher than the US but not as high as $11.

It's just how things are unfortunately :(

So to weird you out more, Ben Gurion airport (this is Tel Aviv by the way) had Tempest Shadow and Photo Finish next to the set of Water Cuties with the wings - I brought Rainbow Dash and Lily Blossom home with me as well as the ponies were on offer...

Here in the UK, Applejack and Flower Wishes are still in stores, too ;)

Sick of seeing the same things in the toy aisles. I really want the Cutie Mark Crew sets, but it's fine if they don't come out until after the fair for me.  ;)
They just don't seem to be putting too much effort in the lineup this year, usually there's new stuff by now.
Title: Re: Has anyone found All About Tempest Shadow?
Post by: Ponyfan on June 05, 2018, 07:33:58 PM
Thank you everyone. I'm sorry that so many are not finding the new things also. It seemed like there were a lot of new toys in the fall for the movie release and at the beginning of the year for the MLP movie DVD/Blu Ray release but my stores still have the same old MLP toys they've had for months with no new items. 

My local Walmarts have plenty of pirate pony sets, some Guardians of Harmony single pirate ponies and a few pearly Fluttershy sea ponies still on the shelves and seem overstocked on the Mane 6 All About ponies.


My Target's pony section has also not had anything new for quite some time.  They're down to mostly the water filled sea ponies, the large singing Songbird and the little movie bling bag size set.

My wall mart was completely deserted of ponies save for the pack of pirate main six, fluttershy and pinkie pie as mermaids, and a huge empty cardboard display of brush able singles. The section for ponies has been taken over by lollipop mini plush animals.  Oh and they had a ton of those  giant almost see though celestrera ones, and one giant brushable rainbow dash.     So nope and my work place is devoid of ponies except for wave two pearly ones.  :mad: :pout:

With usual UK logic, CMC sets are out here as well as the blind bag ones. But they are on shelves alongside wave 2 of the All Abouts in every store. I am getting sick of seeing Soarin and Sweetie Drops. I still just want Songbird. Our distribution makes no sense here.

Now that I think about the Wave 2 Baby sea ponies still aren't widely available  in the US and I haven't found the Baby hippogriffs either. I'm beginning to wonder if All About Tempest Shadow and the Baby Hippogriffs will mostly skip the US as it seems they should have been out by now. I thought I found another Songbird today but it was Fluttershy.

I think I remember at least one person I follow on Instagram found Wave 4, I think it was the US.... not entirely sure though. I wish they'd at least stick them online already...

Even Wave 3's distribution is awful. I found Wave 3 at one of the three local Walmarts around here, and haven't found it anywhere else.

Bear with me, as I'm not savvy about waves or special names, so maybe you mean something different than what I've seen, but my Toys R Us had Festival Foes before the film was even released, as well as a plush Tempest, and has had a large Tempest, which I finally picked up a couple weeks ago, for a while. And my Target had the large Songbird for quite a while. I haven't seen Celano, but I've seen the male parrot, and Capper. And I saw a large male hippogriff guard last time I was at Toys R Us -- hoping he'll be there when I get a chance to go again. I live in Florida, if that means anything ....

Okay, I had the impression that most people weren't able to find any version of her at all. Just clarify, it's just the "All About Tempest" specifically people can't find? Debating whether to make a special trip to see if my TRU has any left of the big Tempest or the plush (or that big hippogriff guard) for the Fair, but if people aren't having trouble finding those, I won't bother. :)

Given that my last visit to Smyths back home saw these on the shelves:

https://www.mlpmerch.com/2015/03/cutie-mark-magic-ribbon-hair-singles.html

...I think we can safely say that there is no actual logic going into stocking here in the UK and thus we might get anything appearing at any time without warning. (Incidentally, the ones I saw seem to be Canadian packaged).

I still have hopes for wave 3 and 4 coming here but it might be they don't happen till Christmas when stores bring stuff out from store rooms and shove them everywhere. Wave 3 pearlies also only appeared here in scant numbers. But wave 1 All Abouts only appeared for a short time here too. We've had Soarin's set forever so I'm starting to think we must also be clearancing wave 2 for all of Europe who've moved on since then.

I just have hope maybe, since we keep getting Canadian stock (Flower Wishes and Applejack water cuties also in Canadian packages, also still on shelves here) that we might ultimately get something other than wave 2 on our shelves too...who knows.

There's an All About Luna as well, isn't there? Which wave is she? 3 or 4? I didn't see her in Israel, so I am assuming she's part of 3?

I think I understand from watching this distribution farce why it was that I never found the G1 ponies I wanted as a kid...:/

As for the baby hippogriffs, they turned up in Singapore and NZ as far as I know, and from what I've seen those were on US cards. Someone in the UK had a bunch of them on ebay but they weren't European packaged so must've been imported. Whether they exist on UK cards or not I don't know. There are still occasional wave 2 baby sea ponies lurking around here, wave 1 is gone, and most sites say they're discontinued. No news of Hippogriffs. Hasbro UK told me they haven't a clue (rudely) so yeah. I#ve about given up on them but still hope maybe they'll appear around Christmas here.

Advantages and disadvantages of living in a country whose Hasbro people don't pay attention to distribution dates.

I just saw her at the local comic store today.  They only had four brushables total - Tempest and Fluttershy from Wave 4 and Rainbow and Songbird from Wave 3.

I've seen a few All About Fluttershys but still haven't found Tempest.  Both of my Targets stores but the large singing Songbird Serenade on clearance.

There are two Fluttershys! Which is the one that you're seeing? There's one from Wave 1 with butterflies and trees on her, in the basic standing pose, and the Wave 4 one has one front hoof raised and she has birds and butterflies on her.

So.... Anyone seen her in the UK yet? All I keep finding are pearly ponies, All About Soarin and Applejack Ribbons everywhere.

Nope. Not in the UK. Still looking. But I hope we won't skip the Songbird wave which should come first. I think we have the whole planet's stock of ribbon pony leftovers right now and ditto maybe on the wave 1 pearlies...also a lot of Soarin Soarin Soarin Soarin....and more commonly, the mane 6 ponies from Soarin's set that nobody buys...

It’s Wave 1 Fluttershy which means there’s still no sign of Tempest’s wave

Yep, UK certainly seems to love taking leftovers... They do the same thing with Pokemon, usually charging full price for stock that never sold. Then they wonder why they don't sell -_-

I tried Kohl's today and found a ton of the pearly sea ponies (Mostly Fluttershy but also a few Raritys but still no Tempest. The Target and Walmart stores in my area are starting to clearance most of the MLP the movie toys so it's starting to look like Tempest won't be seen in my area. :sad:

I wonder if this will be one of those things were we despair of ever seeing this wave and then suddenly a ton of them will show up at places like 5 Below or Ross.  Wasn't that what happened with the 1st snowglobe wave that featured Celestia and Luna?

I was thinking the same thing Leave a Whipser. I'd almost given up since we're getting close to almost a year since the movie was released. There were also a lot of Songbirds too. :)

I might need to go check my Walmart, then. Tempest is the only other one that I want from the "All About" series. I am selling off most of the other ones because I am not crazy about them at all. I just started collecting them because they were cheap and less than $3 each on Amazon.

Post by: TheBeatlesPkmnFan42 on August 28, 2018, 10:18:22 PM
Nice that some people have found her in the US, I already got her a few weeks back on Amazon, though. Third party seller so she was more expensive, but I had lost hope in her showing up here, haha. Still kinda doubt my local Walmarts are gonna get her in, they've had Waves 1 and 2 (mostly 1), for the longest time...

I almost bought her but for some reason I didn't see any type of story images on her like with the other "all about" ponies.  I know her armor is dark so maybe that's why?

For some reason there's a few ponies they include in the All About set, that aren't actually All About ponies. Songbird Serenade, Tempest Shadow, and Photo Finish are all in the set, but are all regular ponies. I guess because they have clothes?

I found her in the Netherlands as well :) Maybe I should pick some up and take them with me to the Con if they're not in the UK yet. I mean, we are always WAY behind over here :P

Found a few Tempest Shadows and Songbirds at two different Walmart stores. The Target stores I checked didn't have her at all.

I still haven't seen them in the UK. Also not seeing Soarin's set here either any more. Though my toy shops have changed now I've moved so it might just be regional distribution. No Songbird wave either.

The only Tempest I saw so far is still the one I picked up in Israel.

I figured if she made it to my area then Tempest must be appearing in more places as where I live it's unusual to be the first to get new stuff and I have looked for All About Tempest since I found out she would be released as a single.  If I'm able to find extras, would anyone be interested?

If I may get two I would be appreciative of it. My sister is looking for her, too. The Targets and Walmarts around me have not had anything other than Soarin and DJ Pon 3  x.x

She's at my local Walmart now too, along with the rest of Wave 4 (and Wave 3). I already bought her from a third party Amazon seller last month though for more money, so....

That could be.  Has anyone tried to take off their clothes and see if the all about scenes are on their actual bodies?

Nothing nada zilch. I wanted her too. Just the same All Abouts. I'd just like a regular Soaring and Sweetie Drops. Maybe I'll grab em and do something about those hideous murals.

That’s really interesting. :) Does Tempest have a symbol under her armor?

Sorry you haven’t found her yet Leave a Whisper. :hug: I’m on a really tight budget right now but I might be able to pick up extras in another month or so if anyone is still looking for Tempest or Songbird.
