This one popped up on Taobao this week. Looks pretty official doesn't it? So, maybe we'll be seeing spa ponies in a future three-pack along the lnes of the Apple family, Cloudsdale and Wedding sets? I could totally imaguine a set with Rarity packed with her two spa buddies (who could be teh same mold painted two different ways). Exciting!

that'd be pretty neat if they sold them in a three pack :)

Someone found Zecora over on eBay as well.


She's not "obviously" connected to one character: Faust said that she's supposed to be a second mentor to Twilight, but Twi already has a pack. Perhaps they'll do an Everfree Forest pack? Or just a random pack, or friends of the ponies.

As far as Zecora goes... Maybe with Apple Bloom? She was the one who discovered Zecora was nice. But thy might want to do a Apple Bloom, Scootaloo, Sweetie Belle, Cherilee set. Although I don't know how much smaller they can make blind bags to fit younger ponies (as a side note, a school set would be cool, like with Diamond Tiara, Silver Spoon, Featherweight, Snips and Snails, etc.). Or maybe Zecora will be with other ponies who don't "fit in" as much, like the Cakes. Then again, Pinkie doesn't have a set yet... Maybe she'll be a blind bag and not part of a set. She's cool though.

Great to see Zecora appearing and she looks fabulous. I'm impressed they're ponying up the change for some new tooling and not just repainting existing molds as has been the norm for so long. Now we just need a proper sculpted Fluttershy at this scale please Hasbro! :D

Re which hero ponies will appear in sets, assuming these latest reveals will follow the formula and be packaged in three-packs along with one of the mane six, I would imagine we could see some duplication, with mane sixers repacked with various secondary ponies and other friends as suits the sets in question.

Good question regarding fillies though - will they sculpt smaller characters like fillies, foals or pets or is there a choking issue there? I sguess time will tell. I wish Hasbro's Pony brand team would do a regular Q & A like they used to do for other brands like Star Wars, Marvel, Transformers and Joes.

Has anyone found the first three sets in stores yet?

Well here's a surprise. If taobao can be trusted, it appears Lotus (official name now), Zecora and Pinkie Pie are all packed together in a Spa Pony three-pack.



Lotus makes sense, but Zecora and Pinkie Pie? Strange choices, but oh well. Zecora is kinda huge too.

There are also images of clear crystal Wonderbolts, but I sure hope we get regular versions as well:

Those really make no sense AT ALL... I mean, I guess the girls used Zecora's brew in the Spa, but I think it's got to be a fake. If anyone's gonna be at the spa it should be Rarity and Fluttershy!

Like Melissa said, makes no sense. Cool though. And I hope we get Wonderbolts.

And yeah, agreed, Rarity belongs in this set, amd maybe the other spa twin?! Oh well. :)
That would have been my guess, and Hasbro could have made the most of the Lotus sculpt by simply repainting it for her pink colleague.

Interesting. It might yet turn out to be a fake or a mock-up, but, regardless of what they call it or how we see them released, we'll be excited to get Zecora and Lotus for my daughters' collection. Now if they can just see their way to releasing opaque Wonderbolts, that'd be even better.

Bigbadtoystore.com had the spa set listed for preorder, so it *is* for sure coming, but no image, so no idea on actual contents. (preorder is already sold out ... :-/ )

Yeah, although BBTS also sometimes list things speculatively based on leaked images, so I wouldn't take that alone as confimation normally. That listing popped up after the loose spa pony image first appeared online and fans started buzzing. It could have been BBTS moving to take advantage and get the jump on their competitors.don't these sets normaly ship in cartons of eight - if so where are their pre-orders for the other sets in the carton?

That said, in this case I am increasingly of the impression that this three-pack likely is legit as it even has the little labels inside it named correctly. It's just a rather perplexing combination, though no stranger than some of the choices of characters in the brushable Favorite Collection set. Sometimes Hasbro is just kinda random I suppose. :D

Oooo, Hoity Toity has just appeared on ebay. For reals? Looks pretty good but time will tell. That's a pony I never even dreamed we'd get so if this is a sign of things to come then this line just got REALLY interesting.

I think seeing Hoity Toity really demonstartes how deep they're willing to go, assuming he's legit and not a very porfessional looking custom (doubtful at this point). I really never expected that pony to see plastic, but if they'll do him then the sky is the limit.

And perhaps this is why we see Pinkie packed in the Spa Pony set? Who would Hoity Toity share a box with if not Rarity? Dare I hope for Photo Finish to round out that set of three? Even a reduxed Fluttershy would be a welcome inclusion in that third spot. Great times to be a pony fan. :D
