While visiting relatives in Michigan recently, I went to one of the local chain stores called Meijer’s much to my surprise and delight I found the Ponyville-style of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic series there. While I have seen the set before online (normally with insane pricing like $30 after shipping) I had never seen it locally in New England so I was very pleased that I found them, especially since they were only $10 + tax.
The four pack includes Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle and Rarity; there have been no US releases of Applejack and Fluttershy as of yet (I think these are more or less the same as the European blind box mlp but I’m not 100% certain on that). Supposedly a larger set of the Ponyville-style ponies is going to be exclusive to TRU in the not to distant future but with how much things had been delayed with the third wave of MLP:FiM toys I’m not going to hold my breath.
Coincidentally, I figured it was about time I made a MLP page here
I took these pictures in Liberty park, which was a really nice park (zilla must have her daily slide time or else!) by the hotel we stayed at.
My favorite of the four pack is Rainbow Dash, I really love her pose. Rainbow Dash seems to be a bit problematic paint-wise, I had to really dig through a lot of boxes of these figures to find one where the paint of her mane/tail looked decent a lot of them looked well rather derpy.
I really loved the Pinkie Pie figure too but she didn’t always want to stand up for me
Rarity is quite nice but she is my least favorite of the mane six ponies, I find myself wishing that they had included Applejack or even Fluttershy instead.
I’m not totally sold on Twilight Sparkle’s pose it almost seems to proud or boastful for her character ^^;
