Anybody wonder if all these will decrease the value of the originals? Hmmmm............
As Skig said I don't think they'll devalue the original G1s. Honestly, I think they'll only add G1 collectors because I think people will search out the originals and value them even higher.

For anyone who's still having a difficult time finding the new earth ponies at the physical Targets (I think wave 4, sorry I don't understand how to determine which ponies belong to which waves), they can now be bought at Target online, at least Applejack and Seashell. I did not see bowtie or Bubbles on there. Just thought I'd let you chicos and chicas know! :)

Look what just got posted on 35th Anniversary - Classic MLP facebook page....

Netflix Exclusive - Stranger Things Applejack by Basic Fun! This was found on Ebay, and had sold and we are still trying to pin point exactly where this exclusive can be purchased in stores. My guess is they're at Hot Topic.

Update: 06/12/2019 - I removed the images that Daniel had that I placed here on MLPTP. I'll comply here, too.





Update: This Exclusive is going to be at Target. At this time it is not on Brick Seek. DCPI: 323012761 someone found the DCPI just moments ago.

Update: 6/8/2019 - Another one has sold on Ebay. Apparently there is a Target warehouse in the city this person is getting them. Suspisions are high that a Target employee is selling them when obviously they should not.

A fourth listing came on. It's a bid listing. It's at $23 right now

I'm calling a hoax on that. Which is a shame because she's very pretty.

What do you mean? You think it's not real or the listing's a scam?

As in a hoax. I don't believe its real and someone put that there for a laugh. Because its just AJ recolored, upside down and with her symbol flipped. The crossover makes no sense whatsoever and is about as random as the Care Bears crossing over with Resident Evil. People can post false listings too.

Now I'm not saying I'm undeniably right, I'm just saying that this seems kinda fishy to me.

I thought that at first too. My guess it's in celebration for ST season 3. I really hope it isn't a hoax, which it appears it isn't, because this is like a dream come true for me lol :p :D

Mind, the info I got this all from is on the thread of said Facebook group. Someone had a Target employee scan the barcode from the Ebay photos and it came up in their system as this number: 323-01-2761

The main Applejack from Basic Fun is this code: 086-00-2477

Once someone has video feed proof of seeing one of these in the store and buying it, then it will be confirmed I guess. We'll just have to wait and see.

It's in the filing on their site, but no other info so far. We all must be patient and wait.

Update: Daniel from the group said: "this dpci is not toys. It’s books and media.
So it’s probably where the funko and other stuff is by the books and video games."

I think it's legit and def looks like something you'd find over in that section by books with the funko and other show/movie toys and stuff. Also, the seller who is listing them on ebay is located in Waterloo, Iowa, Target has one of it's largest main distribution centers like 10 min from there. I bet someone was able to snag them early and is cashing in on it. Hopefully they'll be everywhere soon for like 9.99.
