I agree!

These vinyls are such a big part of my collection and they introduced me to collecting other Funko products. I'll be really sad if this is it, especially going out on two ponies I don't much care for and missing out on two characters that I was beyond excited for.

Same here the Vinyls brought me into collecting Funko... And they are by far my favorite thing to collect including other brands and things I collect.... :( please Funko don't let it be the end before the best two....

Perhaps maybe they will be ECCC or SDCC exclusives.. Which as long as we get them I guess I don't care how or where

Same here. After Luna, Nightmare Moon and Chrysalis were my two most wanted characters to be made. I was dying to see glitters of them too. Especially since I have yet to find Luna's glitter variant.

I really just need Nightmare Moon and Chrysalis- other characters would be great (especially a Changeling) but really- we NEED NM and Chrysalis! I think they would be the most popular figures to date. How cruel would it be for the line to stop JUST short of the two most epic figures?

But I am worried that what may be impacting these two- is the price of production. I mean, when you look at Luna- (who sold out instantly everytime a shipment appeared) - she is a fairly complicated design, and she is heavy. Honestly she seems more expensive than the Hikaris. I wonder if production costs for her and Celestia ended up costing close to what they expected to get as a retail price? Thereby causing the line to be nixed?

Honestly though I would not think twice before paying $50 for either Chrysalis or Nightmare Moon if that was going to be their price.

It took me 16 visits to McDonalds locations but I finally have all 8 of the current Happy Meal ponies. Since there's a chance of no more mystery minis, I made an extra effort to get Coco, Starlight, Rarity and Fluttershy since they can kind of sort of be displayed with the mini ponies.

Congrats! I'm just missing Rainbow Dash and Starlight, and have 2 Pinkie Pies and 2 Fluttershys. lol I'm hoping I can buy/trade Rainbow Dash from someone, since I doubt I can pick her up at Mcdonalds anymore.

The theory of NMM and Chrys's cost of production being the reason for this delay makes sense to me. Luna and Celestia only got one release, didn't they? And I remember that being complicated by the port strike, making those two particularly hard to attain. I'm so grateful that the one Luna I ordered happened to be glitter, I didn't want to even dream of having a glitter Luna at the time.

I really do hope someone like B&N picks up these ponies. They don't seem to be phasing out the vinyl ponies, as far as I can tell. It's just a bummer, I only collect two Funko lines and now the both of them look to be done, without any official word or clarification. So we're left to wonder, which gets tiring.

I would too.

Honestly, I just wish we could get an official statement on this so we don't keep our hopes up just to have them shattered. Or, that there was someone we could talk with to let Funko know that we still want these. I feel like they're really dropping the bomb if they don't release these two...

But we should still give it some time. If production issues (which seem likely) are holding things up, hopefully they'll be sorted out soon.

I'm thinking at the very least they will be SDCC since they have the molds made already.. Which as long as we get them I'm happy would suck to not get glitters right away but atleast wed get them. Maybe they will take a break from the line until the MLP movie comes out in theaters?

Honestly wouldnt mind paying $80 a piece for them just to have them..

I would be a little surprised if they did SDCC ponies this year- don't they usually save their CC exclusives for the newest exciting licenses? They didn't do an exclusive last year after all.

But I still haven't lost complete hope until we hear something either way I guess. *crossing fingers and toes*

Same crossing fingers and toes! Are they worried they won't sell well? I know that they would! Maybe release only limited to 500 pieces or something that way they will ALL easily.. The thing is these would be some of the best sellers ever the last wave sucked it was my least favorite wave I think..... Ugh

Question for long time Funko collectors. Let's just say the worst happens and it's cancelled, what are the chances of them coming back in the future? (Say for instance when the MLP movie hits theaters?)

That's how I was introduced to Funko too. While I'm enjoying collecting POP figures, the pony vinyls were always the most exciting to me.

I'd understand if we don't get more ponies from Funko, but I at least want them to go out on top with two amazing characters.

SDCC exclusives would be a plus, especially since we didn't have any last year. Maybe their strategy is to spread out distribution a bit in the hope of having the remaining stock dwindle down a bit.

Does anyone know if there's aaaaaanyyyy chance they may restock Celestia and Luna? I always assumed a wider release was coming, but it never did and now it seems like the pony vinyls are dying down.

I had always thought they would too- there were definitely not nearly enough. But they never did. I think there were a lot of complaints that the tails came unglued in the package. I

That is what made me wonder if maybe production costs got too high for the big elaborate ponies...

Saw a couple people on a Facebook trade group getting really excited about collecting these and all guessing what was to come next.. I didn't have the heart to say anything yet, I hope we have answers soon, and I hope they are good... Please don't give up on us Funko, if you release Queen Chrysalis and Nightmare Moon I know the sales will be great!

I'm pretty sure they have already figured it out on their own that there haven't been any new releases. Honestly, I don't blame Funko for dropping this line. All anyone seems to want are the chase figures and the rest just end up being shelf warmers for the longest time and that is a pretty big waste of money if they continue to sit on the shelf a year or two after being released.

Gotta do what makes the most money in the long run and this doesn't seem to be it for them.

If they have given up on this line, it'd be nice to have an official word from them. Plus, it's weird that they'd drop this but do MLP in the form of those emoji things, but blind bag toys/figures are really popular these days...

In saying that, does Funko usually release a statement of any kind when they're done with a particular line of figures? I'm trying to stay optimistic about getting Chrysalis and NMM in the future, but that's looking more and more bleak as time goes on.

I don't think Funko has ever released a statement "we are done" with a particular line. They probably never know if they may want to come back to it.

But for MLP, it has been so long now. I'm afraid we will never see Chrysalis or NM. At least we have the minis I guess.

No, they don't do official statements. That's very black and white, and this is a company based upon supply and demand (just like any other) and more than anything, trend.

The CMC did not sell well, and Maud and Cheese sandwich did not sell well. That's two series in a row that tanked. It's hard to bounce back from that, and even then they are running out of highly marketable characters. Keep an eye on the funko website vault area to see if pieces are discontinued.

Okie dokie, I was just wondering. The pony vinyls are how I got into Funko, so I wasn't sure how they typically handled things like stopping production for certain lines.

It was almost a given that the CMC, Maud, and Cheese Sandwich wouldn't sell as well as other ponies. Oh well. Hasbro stepped up their game and will be giving us Guardians of Harmony. If Funko doesn't give us Nightmare Moon and Queen Chrysalis (and as time goes by, I'm leaning more and more towards thinking we aren't getting them), we at least have those to look forward to as far as awesome looking figures of those two.

It's just a shame because the protos of their vinyl figures looked really promising...

It really is too bad they didn't go directly to Nightmare Moon and Chrysalis. We all know those would have sold like crazy.

So I just checked the vault- Ponies vaulted include: Luna, Celestia and Applejack, Pinkie, Big Macintosh and Sweetie Drops.

With the exception of Sweetie Drops- it is perhaps not a coincidence that all of THESE ponies just so happen to be the more complicated/heavy/subject to breakage ponies we've had.

There was certainly no other reason to send Celestia and Luna to the vault- those ponies sold out almost the instant they went on sale, and every time they were restocked. The only explanation seems to be production cost- probably if we were seeing a lot of broken tails in the post production packages- QC for these two was probably a nightmare- I bet they had a LOT of broken ponies to contend with... which no doubt jacked up production cost.

Since Chrysalis and Nightmare Moon are as or possibly more complicated than even Celestia and Luna-

I don't know about you guys, but the fact that Luna and Celestia are ALREADY in the vault after so short and small a release (despite sell-outs) pretty much seals the deal for me.

We are not going to see large versions of Chrysalis or Nightmare Moon. Unless whoever it is that has the prototypes decides to cast them...

That's just so sad. I was so looking forward to Chrysalis and Nightmare Moon. They would have been amazing. I'm just really sad that there doesn't look to be any new pony stuff this year (beside the mymjois things, which for me are not appealing at all).

Dorbz seems to be picking up in popularity - but I wonder how MLP would translate? I just want my funko ponies to continue on!

I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that maybe we get something good for SDCC! :)

I could cry. I was seriously so pumped about getting my favorite character from MLP as a Funko figure, but I think you may be on to something here.

I think I'm more upset knowing that the prototypes exist and...that's it. Like, we were teased with the idea and then they gave up on it before anything really happened. It's just a shame, but I get it.

At least we have the mystery minis of them.

That's really sad to hear. I was really looking forward to Chrysalis or Nightmare Moon. I've been with this line since the beginning, and it would've been great to at least end the line on those two. Luna's release was annoying, especially with the shipment delay and limited quantities. I was hoping to see some sort of price drop on Luna and her chase, but the vaulted status is going to make that difficult... unless a bunch of cases randomly appear.

I still don't think we need to give up that quickly there hasn't been an official word yet. Also we all know some waves were super good sellers, and even the waves that weren't seemed to still eventually sell out at Hot Topic. I would just hope they would at least the last two that so many of us wanted, they would have been two of my favorite releases ever.. They are my two fav villains... As for them running out of marketable characters I don't think that's totally true, they constantly are having new characters in the show that gain popularity quite quickly and have fans begging for Funkos of them like Starlight Glimmer, Sunset Shimmer, etc. I think the other villains like King Sombra would also be a super hot seller. I have a feeling that Chrysalis and Nightmare Moon wouldn't have broken like the Luna mold her tail connector was too thin that's what happened with her and I only saw like one broken out of probably 60-70 different ones.

Besides those ponies have been in the vault for a couple months I remember seeing them in there a long time ago. However some are still in stores, and others being restocked on multiple online retailer sites. So I'm not sure what to think.

While I think it's nice that everyone is being so hopeful I don't think NMM and chrysalis are going to happen. There have been other lines where a character or many were announced and never produced.

Seeing some of the ponies vaulted and since its been so long since cheese and maud were released I'm calling it.

I do truly think that it is a cost of production issue with Chrysalis and Nightmare Moon, unfortunately combined with the fervor of the MLP line dying down (Hot Topic's DC0.

I wish we could get it across to Hot Topic and other retailers (and through them Funko) that people would be willing to pay 2x the usual vinyl price for Chrysalis and Nightmare Moon- I mean, wouldn't you?

Besides those ponies have been in the vault for a couple months I remember seeing them in there a long time ago. However some are still in stores, and others being restocked on multiple online retailer sites. So I'm not sure what to think.



That's just it though...being in the vault just means they are no longer in production, not that the products get pulled off the shelves of retailers. The fact that some of these ponies have been out of production for months and are still somewhat widely available unfortunately says a lot about their waning popularity.

This was the line that got me into Funko products as well, and it is a little sad to see them go.

Yeah- I think maybe overall, retailers are just not ordering as many from Funko- whether it is because they are not selling fast enough or returns issues- or just production cost- I guess we'll never know for sure-

but it is a shame they stopped JUST short of the two most awesome sculpts in the line...
