Nothing but AJ, Pinkie and Rarity here. Not even the blind bottles. Are Potion and Trixie target exclusives?

Our Wal-marts here in my part of Oklahoma so far have the blind bottles as well as fashion style-size Pinkie, and normal brushables AJ, Pinkie, Fluttershy and I think Twilight? I don't think I've seen Rarity yet, but I might have just missed her. I'm holding out hope that we'll get Potion Nova and Trixie at some store here soon, as those two are really the only ones I want atm!

I found Potion Nova at Target yesterday! She was the only one I wanted because she's a new character. I see all the rest of them at Walmart frequently, even Trixie, but never her.

So far my Wally World has had the Fashion style Pinky, the smaller brushables except Potion Nova and the blind bags. I swore I'd avoid this gen, but seeing them in person my Pony Ho-ness kicked in and I bought 'em all. The look more like wacky cats with giant Dib heads (any Invader Zim fans know what I mean) but what the heck. I bought 'em.

LMFAO THEY DO LOOK DIB-ESQUE! I was totally thinking that from the moment I saw them, especially the background art of the new 2D animation, has a very Zimmy/90's cartoon look to it.

I'm not much of a fan of them but I bought Potion Nova and will be watching to see where they go and what happens with them.

Glad I'm not the only one! I saw them and all I could think of was Dr Membrane talking about Baby Dib's enormous head. :D

My Walmart finally got the brushables!
Swore I had said two were enough, but Twilight was too cute to pass up!

However, the rubber bands were missing from her accessory pouch :unsure:
Anyone else have had this happen?

Hmm. I thought his name was Grr for some reason? I always preferred Johnny and Lenora over Zim.
Gir was Zim's little robot companion!
And I LOVEEE JtHM! Never got into Lenora but I do definitely respect that and it's artist's tie-ins with Jhonen Vasquez.
There is a much smaller, two book spin-off series of JtHM called I Feel Sick, it's about Devi, Johnny's ex-girlfriend and the only one who got away! It's about her life afterwards. There is also a one (larger) book spinoff of Johnny, again, called Squee! and it's about that little boy Johnny met (and kinda stalked? lol) and his life after, aswell. They're great!

(apologies for the tangent!)

Yeah your right!
I didn't know that about the spin-offs thanks!

There's a Zim comic as well (Oni Press) and I really enjoy it for the most part. The art's usually quite good (but when it ain't, it really ain't) and Vasquez even writes some of it. I love all his stuff, it's delightfully dark. Enjoyed Lenora s well. I always though it would make a fun stop animation film.

:unsure: Okay. I never thought I'd do this, but I caved and bought 3 I found at Toys R Us (Trixie, Fluttershy + AJ). They... are a little cuter in real life... though I STILL don't like their snoots and huge cat ears. I dunno. Maybe it's my old anime-fandom seeing them as a sort of "chibi" style... I still do not like the animation I've seen so far, though. :/ I'll also be keeping them strictly on-card, in case I ever change my mind about them in the future. I don't think I'll go out of my way to collect them, either - this felt more like an impulse buy. .... I might still hunt down Potion Nova, though. Maybe. Also - if I do buy any more - sticking strictly to the small brushables, no others.
