:surprisepony: . . . . . . . . :shock:

If I found all of that in a locker, I think I'd faint on the spot. WOW!

...seriously. I'm in shock. That locker must have been from a store that went under, or something. SO MANY ponies, a lot of them hard to find... flutters! ... all MINT! That was the find of a LIFETIME. O_O

I've been reading about it on Facebook. It makes me sad, knowing a collector either passed away and their collection was unclaimed or that they lost it, unable to pay storage fees. It doesn't look like old stock to me, because there should be dupes. It looks to be a wll loved collection. I either case, I can't afford any of it, so wahhh!

I used to watch stuff like Storage Wars all the time, and it's amazing what turns up in some of these lockers. What a find! It sounds like there are dupes, so I'm guessing this was from a store, maybe a small store that went under.

My dreams are finding tons of open ponies in toy stores lol. They're always super vivid too.

Boxed stuff generally isn't my thing, and boy are these going for so much on eBay :shock:

I’m bidding on the more gross packaged ponies just because I wanna open them and have a beautiful out of box pony. Hopefully I can nab one at a decent price.

But I have the same very vivid dreams of hitting the pony jackpot at local thrift stores. :tongue:

These are up on ebay now apparently and I've been watching posts all over Facebook about fresh fake accounts bidding up some of these to $2,000.00 and $3,000.00 x.x

Pretty much pointless listings that are a waste of time

Lots of accusations going around but it could even just be a jealous storage wars competitor screwing up the auctions

Lots of people think it could be the seller/people they know but unless solid proof comes up it's just fake accounts unrealistically driving up the prices

I don't know if you were following any of the chatter on the FB groups, but it sounded like maybe there was some shill bidding happening on these lots. I've pretty much stayed away, because I'm notoriously an opener of packages. I prefer mint with card. I was eyeballing the rattier ones too, if there are any you are planning on going after, maybe shoot me a text, so I don't bid against you.

Lol!! I appreciate that but honestly they went over what I was willing to pay just to have a nice pony from package. I tapped out at $100 CAD on all of them (was watching Twilight, Surprise and the Rockin Beat ponies). No, the only FB group I’m on is the restoration.

I agree. There's definitely shilling, but we don't know that it's the seller. Could be trolls who watch the show and just like messing with the dealers.

This is Cool and all. However Hasbro is Releasing the Retro Ponies all over again.

What are the odds that many of what you see in the Video Hasbro will Resurect to Resell to market. The fact that they are Rereleasing the Flutter ponies makes me feel that this is the Beginning of a Retro trend of classics coming back to the market again.

Think about this for a Moment. friends...

Buying one of these toys on ebay 200.00 and 3 years later the same toy is on your story shelf for a fraction of the price.

another think to think about with the rerelease of the retro ponies, Does this mean our own collection will go down in Value especially if the quality is much better in the new ones compared to the old ones..

Just thought I would pop in with some food for thought.

Cost Of living is Expensive as is, and putting funds into a hobby, or even investing in it hoping that we will get a return is risky because no one knows the future.

And from hasbro's move to Bring toys back from the past to market. That too can cause us to loose our investment, or obsess us to collect more.

Im not trying to stomp on you here or crush your hopes and dreams. We all need to think for our selves and make our own decision.

Peace Everyone
