Seeing the checklist made me realize I'd slept on the past two waves! Now I've got Confetti, Tickle, Applejack, Bowtie, and Seashell on their way to me \o/ Auggh the rest of the rainbow wave looks good too...

Except for Pinwheel apparently, I can NOT find her ANYWHERE D:

Hopefully they pick up the Flutter Ponies again, I love those! We also need some sea ponies in our lives.

I want new/different packaging for the next re-releases and hopefully flutters first. It would be great getting those with brand new wings! I'd also love to see some of the rarer ponies such as big brothers and animal friends. I could see those selling really well. The familes would be cute too!

Wait! I asked for the Mountain Boys and got nuthin!
I also asked if they had any plans to release flutters. They said they had them ready to go but no retailer picked them up. So they were cancelled
Really makes me sad cause I would've picked flutters over all the other releases so far!

Can we harass retailers until one of them picks up flutters? XD

I honestly don't know what they're thinking, turning them down! I bet flutters would sell the best apart from maybe Twilight/Glory/AJ/Firefly, the G4 ancestors.

We should all demand Mountain Boy ponies now! :reaper: Probably only way I’d ever get one, unless I win that dang lottery I keep dreaming about.
They really should be doing rarer ones. I feel those would sell the most. Heck just redo the entire g1 line lol

I agree. I'd love to have ones with wings. I'd probably take the wings from the new ones and put them on the original ones lol

Are they really that strong !? I love scented stuff :ponylove:
Starshine is by far my favorite and her scent has held up really well since I first unboxed her about a year ago. Parasol I find pleasant; ditto for Sunlight. However, I have found that those two, along with Windy, Moonstone and Skydancer have scents that tend to mix if placed next to each other. You might consider putting them next to any unscented repro ponies you have, as the scents do not seem to transfer to them. Does anyone know if the scents wash off?
