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.

maybe needs a toothbrush scrub? sorry ya have to deal with a paint mess on top of them being blind bags so ya don't know who it is you are buying. I kinda like the geometry involved, but don't think I will get into the new pony lines at all 'cause yeah, to me, MLP translates to brushable pony, not statue

thanks for sharing and I hope your cleaning efforts pay off!

I actually like the names :lolpony:

I wonder if some of these are derived from older ponies? Locket Key mildly resembles G1 Locket, while Bright Sun resembles G3 Sunshimmer (and subsequently Sunset Shimmer)

Good point. Though fizzleshake still gives me the giggles.

"Fizzleshake" makes me feel like they wanted to reuse "Fizzypop" from G3, but remembered that they already did with Tempest Shadow (Fizzlepop Berrytwist) o_O

So they had to like... make it slightly different lmao

EDIT: According to the original page, many of them were indeed inspired by previous ponies, namely G1 Twinkle Eyes!

So in that case:

Masquerade = Masquerade
Sweet Sugar Pop = Sweet Pop
Locket Key = Locket
Magic Mimic = Mimic
Bright Sun = Bright Eyes
Fizzleshake = Fizzy, likely with G3 Fizzypop and G4 Fizzlepop influence (judging by her color palette)
