Re: MLP Vinyl Discussion (Wave 12 Released)

Postby brand42 » Mon Dec 14, 2015 8:01 pm

Maud has just about sold out at my local HT's.

I chose to skip Cheese but didn't really save money because it just got used towards other MLP merch, namely the series 2 dog tags. Bought quite a few from Target and I have a box coming from Enterplay (a 25% off code really helped). I'll probably have extra tags and the foil cards which turned out really nice so PM me your wants, if interested.

Lastly, this week, TRU has a buy one get one free sale on MLP toys so I got a bit of the Pinkie Pie FIM collection stuff from them.

Solely due to running out of space, I have skipped the CMCs, Maud and now Cheese. I simply do not have more room for them! For sure though, if they ever manage to get around to Chrysalis or Nightmare Moon, (or any Changelings) I will get them SO FAST.

So I'm not even sure the pony figures are selling at either HT near me. I'm entirely sure the same ones have been stacked there, kinda disappointing (but not entirely surprising). Surely Chrysalis and NMM will change that in the next wave!

My HT has sold out of Cheese and Maud twice since this wave arrived. I can only imagine how quickly the NM queen chrysalis wave will sell at my store.

I wish they would come out now! Been wanting these two since before we even knew they were being made, however its seeming more and more likely we might not see them until toy fair.

UPDATE

Just talked to Hot Topic's facebook page... these are some of their responses...

HT: "I just received some information that I can share with you. We do not have any more ponies from Funko coming out. frown emoticon We will have a blind bag in two weeks and possibly a blind box for April and then again in June, smile emoticon"

Me: "Does this mean just at this time or you won't have any new funko ponies for the whole year?"

HT: "We will not have them for the whole year."

HT: "Total sad day, but it is true. frown emoticon"

HOPEFULLY THIS ISN'T TRUE! Although it's not looking good for future ponies at Hot Topic! I'm thinking the contract is up and maybe Funko will start releasing the ponies at other retailers first like popcultcha, entertainment earth, target, walmart, etc? Any long time collectors know what this could mean? Has this happened before with another line?

Hm, that stinks. I hope that just means HT isn't carrying them, and not that the line has ended without giving us NM and Chrysalis...

I liked getting them from Hot Topic because of their constant sales, and the fact that there are nice workers at mine that would alert me of any glitters. :(

I'm not too surprised though. As I said before, I was told that Cheese Sandwich and Maud haven't exactly been flying off the shelves...but Chrysalis and Nightmare Moon would've been HUGE hits!

Here's hoping this just means they'll be available at multiple stores!

That sucks :( HT and BN are the only stores I've been able to find the vinyls but more so at HT, plus they run all those different sales promos. Cheese and Maud sold okay at the HT closest to me. They just got a new shipment of 6 of each of those two in this week but they also have a bunch of CMCs, a few Spitfires, and a Shining Armor on the clearance shelves, so I guess the ponies aren't selling as well as they use to...

It's not that the ponies aren't selling well it's that Hot Topic decided not to carry MLP anymore, some are surprised that they carried ponies for so long, since they usually change their inventory to whatever is trending, thus the name "HOT" Topic. They are phasing all MLP out of their stores not just Funko ponies, I sure hope this means that new one will start showing up elsewhere like the Funko Store and other stores :) So pumped for toy fair as long as at least Nightmare Moon and Chrysalis are there then I'm happy :)

Personally I think they are making a huge mistake especially ending with Cheese and Maud (probably two of the lowest sellers) and right before probably two of the best sellers ever in the line. NMM and QC.

At least in my area, I'm quite certain the ponies don't sell well. There's always stacks of them in the clearance sections, the CMC were already marked down on clearance before Christmas and are still sitting there now, so obviously they don't exactly fly off shelves in HT around here. All but the Maud and Cheese have been on clearance on their website for quite some time too.

Personally, I'll be glad to see some other stores get ponies instead, HT always had way too much of a markup on them for my liking.

Since I can never get to a HT and order form online - which never ever seems to have any MLP (or I have the worst luck EVER with the which is totally possible...) I wouldn't mind seeing them at other stores.

Ah, but they are already at other stores.

They are at various comic shops, and B&N, and occasionally at the Big Box stores- but it has always been easiest to get them from HT. I expect people will have a harder time getting all the ponies now- I suspect I will finally crumble and pay those Popcultcha prices...

Where else are they sold? Hot Topic was the only place that got new ponies here in Tacoma,WA. Walmart is a joke and B&N (which isn't close to here) never has new ones.

I'm sure an exclusive contract will be made for another retailer.
Honestly, this could be good news. The Hot topics I go to are all annoyed with dealing with the variants and the ones who aren't buy them themselves to flip.
This could mix things up a bit so that we could have better chances of finding glitters

Is it possible that multiple stores/online retailers will carry the new future vinyls like how the POPs are? Seems like when a new POP line comes out EE, Gem, Barnes N Noble, etc seem to get them available.
