Someone would want a configuration other than supremely huggable?

Ponies were made for hugging, though lack of marshmallow pony is perplexing. :ponder:

I pre-ordered a Twilight :yay: I hope they eventually do all the Mane 6, because those ones are really nice and not obscenely priced.

They're pre-orders for June. I imagine that they haven't even gone into production yet, and they opened up pre-sales because they had no idea how many to make. This way they get some info and don't risk A) making a hundred and disappointing a thousand people or B) making ten thousand and having a ton sitting around unsold.

But since you pay via PayPal, I think you are charged right away. So if you don't have the money now (like me and I presume the other worriers) you might not get one later. Unless they don't put the charge through until later, but I don't want to risk triggering an overdraft to find out. :pinkieshrug:

Kinda makes me wonder if they're going to do another run of them. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on one of those, but not at the eBay prices.

I need one of those, a white Celestia, and an Applejack to make my Fashion Style collection complete. Maybe the Applejack will be re-released too. :pinkieshrug:

I wouldn't mind if they did another run on fashion style Derpy, hopefully at a cheaper price.

Preview edit: Sweet christmas! :-D

I found some other interesting ponies at taobao. Looks like we'll be getting a Mrs. Cake brushie, hopefully there's going to be a Mr. Cake too. Also I found a mystery foal I don't think I've seen before.

Wonder if the Mystery foal could be the cakes niece? or they are just expanding the line to include fillies, which could be good, might improve our chances of getting Babs Seed, Twist & Silver Spoon Brushables! *knockonwood*

It's weird what details they'll decide to get right and what ones they'll ignore. They actually bothered to give Mrs. Cake unique eyes to match her signature facial expression on the show, but not to alter the mold to fit her unique body model. I guess applying paint a bit differently costs a hell of a lot less than making a new mold. It's just interesting to see them care at all about consistency, given their track record.

Those are the standard three-inch tall "Playful Ponies" collection. The ones in that pic above (and the original release) are the six-inch "Fashion Style" models. Besides the size, the Fashion Style ponies have larger wings with a third stack of feathers.

Of course I'll be picking up the Fan Favorite collection pack, too. I doubt they'll give Derpy a name on the packaging, but if they do, I think "Fan Favorite" would be a cute name for her.

I'll use a couple of pushpins with blue balls on the end of them to simulate her earrings from the show.

Agreed. It would have been nice if they made her more portly.

It is nice to see a toy for her though, because it 100% confirms that she's going to play a bigger part in the show and that Egophiliac is now on staff.

100% :gotcha:

Making her portly would have likely added millions to the production cost, due to the need for new molds to be machined.

As for the Derpys, I'm not familiar with the different brushables, so I didn't know those were different. I wonder if the factory that made the SDCC special is running some "4th Shift" production runs of them :gotcha:

What about Diamond Tiara? I need a brushie size version of Ponyville's own J. Jonah Jameson. She needs pictures! Pictures of Mare Do Well!

Also why do we not have a Diamond Tiara smiley? :rainbert: She's perfect for expressing snottiness, snobbery, and general brattiness.

She may not be as large as she is on the show, but you can not mistake those eyes.

Oh. That's neat! I never noticed that before. The colored lighting must have thrown me off.

I might actually wind up getting that Mrs. Cake brushie. I really like how the eyes came out. And she can keep my Pinkie brushy company.

Anyone know if there's a way to get that nice Luna that toys r us has outside of buying that fifty dollar set of various ponies it comes with? It's impressively show-accurate but that's a steep price for a set with only one really desirable piece. From what I recall, the rest were all mane 6 recolors. :-/

You mean the Nightmare Moon? I don't think there's a way to get the current one separately outside of eBay, and that will probably cost something similar by itself to what the set does.

However, I didn't know (or remember) it until researching for this post, but they are apparently making a talking version, which will presumably be sold separately.

:moonie: MY WINGS ARE SO PRETTY

EDIT: If it is Luna you want, they've started selling a pack with her and Rarity over here (as well as Pinkie and Celestia, and apparently there's meant to be a Princess Twilight and Dash one but I haven't seen it). :pinkieshrug:

EDIT 2: Actually, the Nightmare Moons seem to be readily accessible on eBay from Chinese sellers.

Yeah, the NMM one, sorry. I don't know if I'd want a talky one ever. They're just too ridiculous and the quotes are always horrible. And my cat would probably knock it off the shelf and bat it around and I would hear "Oh my hair is so pretty!" all night long. :bluh:
