Okay so I finally got ahold of some of these, and I need to say that the paint thing is THE WORST. At least with the last batch of blind bags, you could elect to cut them out of the bag and avoid the watery mess. With these, the paint ends up getting absolutely everywhere and even though it's all supposed to come off in the water, remnants of it stay on the pony. I've been whittling away at Applejack with the end of a paperclip all day, trying to get all the pink smudges off.
Good point. Though fizzleshake still gives me the giggles.
