And I took advantage of free shipping and other promotional discounts, so, making an average, I paid 8.10 euros (9.00 dollars) for each pony ... Surely better than purchasing from U.S. (custom duties double up the amount) ...I'm so happy !!!! :star::star::star:
I'm looking forward to receive them... :ponylove:

Why retailers aren’t stocking/may not buy:
(1) Basic Fun probably can’t give the kind of discounts a larger company like Hasbro can, so these ponies are low-margin; and/or
(2) With the end of G4, retailers aren’t re-stocking MLP in general, and that extends to the repros.
Don’t know if either of these possible explanations is right, but I’ve been puzzling over the issue and thought I would share.

hello everyone, I hope you’re all doing well.

For anyone in need of the second set of rainbow ponies (not including starflower and pinwheel), they’re available on target for the reg price of $9.99. If you spend $35 dollars or more shipping is free to your house. I bought them because I’d rather not pay $20+ for each one on eBay. Just thought I’d like you guys know! Sorry if this has been posted, I haven’t seen anything about this on here yet, so hopefully it helps someone!

I'm late to the party, but yay baby ponies! I guess this person was onto something! Wish we could've got Ember, though, although with her alts I can see why she's tricky.

This makes sense, thanks Larkspur! IMO the ending of g4 should be more reason to stock these, not less. Give the pony-lovers what they want while we're between stops :p I guess the retailers don't see it that way though XD

It'd be awesome if BF could open their own online store and sell them themselves, though! nudge nudge, wink wink ;) especially with those darn exclusivity agreements that make me anxious if ill ever get one...

@CriStable Glad you got them! :D

I found the 1983 collection at the Aldi I go to! They had Minty, Butterscotch, and Blue Belle. Aldi kinda tends to be sporadic with what they stock though, so I very much doubt they'll be there next time I'm there.

Finally found my first Repro's at a Target! I had been picking them up at Meijer's. Just the Year 3 rainbows, 1 set of 6 (I had all but the unicorns already) on the end cap mixed in with the G3 Retro mane 6(?Not sure what to call them) and they were on sale. $7.29 each and buy 2 get 1 free. Not sure if that was just that Target specifically or what but I am down to just a few of the Repro's left to find and pick up.

2nd set Rainbow Ponies are at Target in Marysville, WA. There are 2 Star Flowers, 1 Tickle, 1 Trickle and 2 Flutterbye left, along with many G3 Mane Six.

I got out like a bandit thanks to an ad on the end cap that was labeled wrong and placed in the wrong location and was expired for a Buy 2, Get 3rd Free. The manager honored it cause of the major mistakes and gave us 25% off cause we didn't know about the text Target for extra savings using their app. So, no more pony hunting for me until March. I'm set for a while.
