So pretty!! They need to do twinkle eye ponies.....perhaps just one in particular....and no, I ain't talking about Mimic :p
My childhood TE Sky Rocket my grandmother gave me for one of my birthdays. Gave it away 15 years ago to make some money for bills. I'd love to replaced that one for sure.

But I still want Year 3 Baby Ponies back. I can see the baby ponies only being sold as a whole set cause they're so small.

I'm tempted to say Dream Castle, as I really want Majesty, but I don't have anywhere to actually display (or even store) her castle.
I also hope they release Ember somehow. All three variants of her.
Ember has 4 variants. Pink, Blue, Purple and with her symbol. ;)

Checked BrickSeek for the heck of it and found this strange looking pony...


At last, a new character! The color scheme is simple, unusual and elegant.

Today a year ago the thread started...

And in Mexico (so far) Basic Fun can't sell them because of distribution rights -.- I still hope someday not so far in the future will see them in Mexico...

I hope so too.

UDPATE!

Applejack has been found at Target! Not by me, but someone named Beth on FB posted a video.

Tactic to get more Wave 4 Ponies at YOUR Target store - Talked to the toy section employee at my location (Smoky Point, WA) he said, "There are a lot more boxes in the back. The only way to get the next sets to come to the store is if everyone bought these," he brought out a long stack of Wave 1 Original Six ponies and laid them out on an empty product counter.

Then I told him this, "Collectors will rescue damaged or slightly overly played ponies and make them into customs. This way the mint to near mint condition ponies that are left, their value in price goes up over time. Same can happen for the retro remakes of Wave 1. If everyone buys them of the overstock and make customs, the Wave 4 will come in quicker."

We all have an assignment. Go out there, if you can financially, and buy two of each Mane Six Retro Wave 1 ponies. Let's bring Wave 4 into the stores!

Does anyone know where to find bubbles?
Bubbles should be the next wave released along with Bowtie, Applejack, and Seashell. She would be at your local Target if you are in the US.
I know they've started appearing at other locations but my Target still just has the collectors and wave 1 rainbows. I'm going to have to start thinking of customs to do with them so I can help move things along.
