I'm really sad to hear that about the flutter ponies. I've been looking forward to them...
That was me, likely among others. Flutters have been canceled, as well as Lemon Drop and the second Pretty Parlor.Someone posted on a MLP thread on FB that had spoken with the Basic Fun booth asking about Flutters when they would come out. The person at the booth said that, Flutters and Lemon Drop set were canceled. 2nd set of Rainbow Ponies will be hitting stores this August, they also said.

There is an air about the FB MLP pages right now that it could be possible that the Basic Fun Retro MLP line will be ending soon.
Suuuuper disappointed about flutters! Was very keen to get some with intact wings
I can understand them stopping the line for not selling well, and I can understand it not selling well because kids don't want nostalgia and collectors don't want ponies they already have... but right before flutters is a big shame! Every collector would want one, and the fact they're a pony race that isn't in FiM might catch kids' eyes too. However the fact Hasbro is getting in on the action would seem to contradict the "poor sales" argument.
Have to say I'm disappointed at the announcement of a second target exclusive, too. Target's int'l shipping sucks majorly :/
I'm putting my chips down on Dream Castle for PP2! That's maybe optimistic, but you need a little glass-half-full-ness after bad news like this! I really want Majesty and Spike, and the SDCC Majesty would suggest they have plans to make her!
This is sad. The whole "kids won't care for them" doesn't make sense. I LOVED quality, even at as young as 3. I'm so glad I was older when g4 came out. It would of disappointed me.
No I saw it on Tumblr/other treads. My cousins are 3 and won't touch them, especially since the plastic stinks. I guess it depends on the kids. The early years of FIM maybe, but ones from the past 5 years are already meltingI didn't see that said anywhere. To kids, these are toys. New toys to them. I gave some to my little cousins and they were well recieved.
