    There are a tonne of new images popping up online toady that seem to suggest a new wave of Blind Bag Ponies is poised to drop. The images all feature clear jell ponies. See what you folks think after the jump ...

    Personally, I'd much prefer regular, nontransluscent figurines and so do my kids, so I hope all these see through ponies and metallic ones and what have you that seem to be dominating the newest Blind Bag assortments aren't the norm for all future waves. Some of these look like characters we'd hope to see as regular versions as well.

    If they're real, they're probably Hasbro's reponse to everyone who complained that the glitter on the sparkle ponies is just a top coat so it flakes off XD They're kinda cute though! I'm not much a completionist and always just pick what Ilike from each wave so I can definitely see a few but not all of these joining my display =)

    Yeah... Actually at the 5 and 10 nearby there's still a newborn cutie Scootaloo for sale. Wonder why nobody bought her?

    I agree with CC, the expressions in their faces kinda creep me out a little bit

    I love Photo Finish! I wonder if Diamond Tiara and Apple Bloom are a smaller size (though I don't know if they can make them much smaller).

    I just have to ask. Even though I am not going to buy any more of these things than the mane 6, why do they keep using the same molds over and over and over? Can't they make them differently?

    It simply costs less! You can produce more and only buy the molds once. Instead of one pony, you can have as many charecters as you want without having to produce or create new molds.

    I kinda like the clear plastic, but I'm not sure about the painted hair. Looks crappy on some of them.
    Must..have..strawberry...unicorn! Why can't these be in Canada?! *cries*
