These ponies will be the literal death of me.

Have any of my fellow Canadian members been able to locate any of these at Indigo yet?? This whole Target (and soon Toys-R-Us) leaving Canada has been really very inconvenient for me and my pony collecting. lol Geeze.

Interesting! The video seems to think Cotton Candy is a rainbow pony though... lol.

BTW it annoys me a bit that it says "Calling all parents who grew up in the '80s!" Um, I'm not a parent and don't intend to be. How about "Calling all those who grew up in the '80s!"? Hmph!

I'm not completely negative though... I will be SO excited to see these and think they look great, although I haven't decided if I want them since I have the originals. I do want the Pretty Parlor, though, since mine has faded to two different colors with age. Can't wait! :)

I'm worried what this will mean for the upcoming sets with TrU going outta business.

I was wondering how that would affect things too. I need my Pony Fix.

Yeah. For us especially, we don't have a Target in our city. TrU was the only reason Obsidianleaf got Bluebelle and Blossom.

Hopefully as with Target, some stores will still remain open.

I feel ya. Closest Target in in the next county. We have to go two counties over to get to a TrU. That's what we get, livin' in da woods.

I’ve been in contact with Indigo quite a bit. I’ve been told quite a few times that the 35th anniversary ponies will not be sold in stores, only online. I was really hoping to get them in person to avoid head/body mismatch, get to see them in stores again, and hoping draw in more buyers so Indigo will want want to keep selling them...

Also, I was told they are not expecting to have them available until June in Canada.

:sadpony::sadpony::sadpony::cry::cry:

Its two hours to our closest one but getting to go at least feel like treat and mini vacation. I think one of the like 3 in the area between middle Alabama and Montgomery are closing. The one in Hoover AL is not but the one they just open like 2 years ago is closing man that really really sucks. it was a tiny bit closer too.

Do you think KB's will stock the upcoming releases?

Can you still get these ponies at Target? Or do you have to order them offline?
If so, what web site?

You can still find em in stores. Probably Target.com or TrU.com while it's still open
