Just saw a Tumblr post by someone who found Starflower and Pinwheel at their local Target!

Can we all take a moment to appreciate that we finally have new Shera toys? <3 I need that Catra and Glimmer so bad. Bo looks kinda strange though. Could just be the picture but still.

I want these rainbow girls so badly but looks like it will be another year before we see them in Canada. Le sad. :(

I'm trying SO hard not to start a new collection but I love the new She-Ra show and those toys look great. Tempted, so tempted . . .

>more unscented Rainbow Ponies Wave 3
>Gusty, Sparkler, Heart Throb, Surprise

Wonder why they're calling them Rainbow Ponies?

I imagine it's incorrect labeling, but makes me wonder if there's more Rainbows on the way too? Because YO RAINBOW CURLS would be so awesome
I think it's just the name they have attached to that code. The 1st set Rainbow ponies, the 2nd set Rainbow ponies, and the Gusty/Surprise set will all use the same set number, for ordering purposes. Hope that makes sense! :)

Messaged basic fun about 2nd wave rainbow ponies making their way to canada and got the news that a 3rd wave is expected next year with sparkler, gusty, heart throb & surprise!!! :)
Awesome! TYSM for the update! Weird that they're still making another wave after seemingly implying the retros were winding down?
Wait. No Skyflier and Powder?
Three of them got SS rereleases and Sparkler is G4 Rarity's inspiration, so my guess is that's why they picked those four. Crossing my fingers for the other 6 adult Y3s though!

I'm 99% sure it's an error but I'd love a rainbow variant Gusty! (Like Argentinian Skyflier?) :D I'm mostly excited for the other three though because they weren't released here.

Me too!! I might give in on these toys though. I went to Mattel’s website and Auora looks amazing too. And the SDCC She-ra and Shadow Weaver look insane. I’m screwed if I see these in person. Lol

I’m curious if these will have flaws fixed with their release. Such as Surprise’s hair colour fading onto her vinyl. One can dream right??

So, just dropped by Target...
They STILL have the scented rainbows (TWO SETS to be exact :(). No sign of the Earth/UniPegs or second set Rainbows here, much less Starflower and Pinwheel. Brickseek and Target’s website said they did have the second set in store, but when I showed one of the employees a picture and gave him the number, he said “we have some in the back”. He came back with a first set, and showed me Starshine, not Confetti :(.
Turns out, since they all share the same code, the second set shows in stock like the first set, which is why he brought the first set out. Moonstone also seems to be rare here, all we got were 2 Starshines, 2 Skydancers, 1 Parasol, 2 Windys and 3 Sunlights (excluding the sets in inventory, but looking at what the nice employee showed, no sign of Moonstone either) I may get the gift set to get this over with, ended up getting Sunlight since the pack is missing her.
