I never got a chance :(
They sell out pretty much everywhere they show up. Hopefully that'll encourage them to up supply (and assortments) to feed the demand.
Neither did I, apparently, lol... :(
NOOOOOOO!!! I wanted some. They better get back in stock soon XD
@NymoYou never stood one. :P
Well that didn't take long. Also, I will be ninja'd for first.
You can have the ponies, or you can have whatever's in the Mystery Figure Case Pack!
Was there ever any doubt?
Aww nuts. Should have seen this coming. Oh well.
Im pretty sure they went out of stock an hour or two after you advertised it, you're quite late!
This is old news, they sold out about three hours after they were posted here.
I wanted one :c
Damn that's like Blizzcon tickets gone quick.
Hopefully I can get some next time. I am waiting to hear reports on rather or not they are complete sets or just 24 random bags from the people who ordered them. I hope they restock these at some point soon though. 100% chance they will sell out again, so it's not like it would be a bad idea for Hasbro to keep restocking them.
This was their litmus test for the Nightmare Moon set, I think we passed ><
What were those? where were they?
where can i order those? if there are new ones in, that is.
I think Hasbro has really found their money-maker.
@FredFredNineNineThey were the blindbag figures available as a box set from Hasbro's online store.
Huh. It took an hour longer than I thought it would.
hehe i got my box :3
Why are we so powerful collectively?Seriosuly Seth, you should order us to go and... attack something. I don't know. But you know we'd do it.
Are you fucking kidding o___________o
To bad I was to late to buy one :c
LOL, they had no idea we would buy that many."Yeah, you always run out!"
Where do bronies get all their money?!
@Pegasus Rescue BrigadeWhy not the Daily Show's old innocent target standby, Belgium. We could take Belgium.
@Jordan Where's the Flim Flam brothers when you need them?
@AltherixThey'd just rush production and we'd end up with a Pinkie Pie that looked like Quasimodo.
Ha! Nicely done, my friends.
Clearly they were outclassed
Hopefully in the future Hasbro have more in stock, and they'll will ship outside of North America.
damnnnnniiiiiiiittttttttt.... make more Hasbro!
@Joey WontonJobs in the tech industry I assume, at least that's where I get mine. Lots of bronies are fairly nerdy, so they probably got tech based degrees, and then got fairly high paying jobs straight out of college.
Hey, I'm happy I have the 12 piece collection set... the only thing I wanted was to pick up one blindbag pegasus to recolor to Derpy.
Lol this was mean.
All right, everyone start making bets on how long it will take stores everywhere to run out of stock once they release the new toys that've been getting so much attention today.@MyBoyJOr worse...http://img.ponibooru.org/_images/69bc4c778fa59fa104ea49a8cc9cd974/48494%20-%20g3.5%20korea%20pinkie_pie%20toy.jpg
@TheBlankedFile BlizzCon tickets? Please. Those things sell out in literally seconds.
Hasbro's starting to realize they've been sitting on a gold mine.
This is actually a pretty good showing. If there was anything to ever show the buying power of at toy that is vaunted by the bronies. Then tada.
@jingerjargonNo! It BURNS!But the architecture is nice.
I didn't know those were for sale already... :c
"These other Bronies have so much money." - Adolf Hitler
I'm starting to think Hasbro is planning to move from toys and games to world domination.
In other news. Whitney Houston passed away!!!!!
What was that about there not being enough prospective buyers for a DVD set?
:( I was going to order a box tomorrow... *cries*
@Joey WontonI assume working :P
Hasbro must be thrilled.Seriously this is the kind of stuff that will make them take notice of us even more. Having a stronger voice is always plus
dude, random comment
saw this coming :P I kinda wanted it too :<
Hasbro liked us once, but pretty soon if not already they will love us.
Ages 3 and up?Guys that's us!:P
@Pegasus Rescue BrigadeWe're pretty much EQD's personal army.And I'm ok with that.
Yeah, we kinda are Hasbro's Cash Cow...
DAMN dude we are crazy
@Pegasus Rescue BrigadeI suggest we attack the fourth wall. I call first visit with Twilight Sparkle, since I have a small library's worth of math and physics textbooks.
This is why Hasbro loves EqD so much...
@Joey WontonI write computer software for a living. Not sure about the others.
and none of them are going to be owned by a little girl.
i missed this round...
I can imagine the some little girls crying after their parent tells them that they're out of stock.
Holy shit, bronies are one rich bunch.
C'Mon RESTOCK ALREADY!!!
I was going to make a Mr Burns excellent but then I realized it kind of sucks XP
Great job everyone. This is what we need, to show Hasbro that we are a serious money source.
Hey everyone they blind bags are on sale! ... and now they're gone! Epic win everyone!
@Beta-CaroteneI prefer to be part of the Reserve.
Awww, come on everypony, leave some for the kids... and also the bronies that are slow on the uptake. :(
@MyBoyJMLP / Hunchback of Notre Dame crossover?Eh, I've seen weirder.
I must say you guys really impress me sometimes, maybe this will convince Hasbro to convince DVD Shout to give us season box sets
@DEXTERShe was a famous singer or something?Oh well, R.I.P. and stuff, I guess.
@Spikely WhiplashOsama bin Laden was also obsessed with her, before he got shot in the head by SEAL Team 6.
I feel sorry for all the little girls who don't have any pony toys due to tons of bronies buying them first.
Looked at Hasbro's site before bed last night and I was so excited, but also sleepy, so I was all like I'll just order them when I wake up. Woke up and instantly got my credit card out, went to the site and needless to say I started cussing everypony on this site. Later I started loving and tolerating everypony again, but I am still one sad brony...
Hasbro should allow back orders so bronies can reserve one in line and when they come in stock they automatically ship.
And only the little girls suffered for it.
@Joey WontonAt our six-figure tech jobs....what, you didn't actually buy into that "basement dweller" BS, did you?
@MyLittleBrony421 Don't you worry about the kids. For every pony toy I buy for myself, I've bought two that I've given away to people at work to give to their kids. I'm sure a lot of people here do something quite similar.As for what's my (high paying tech) job, I shovel exotic manure for a living.
they were out of stock since 1pm EST.... so lames...
For interested parties:Upon receiving our ponies, I and a couple others will report our findings in the comments section of this post.@Watermelonpoop@MyLittleBrony421@Scores-of-othersI really, and I mean really, doubt that these were aimed at anyone other than collectors or bronies. Or that a demographic other than those two would have any interest in purchasing pony figurines by the case.
I was going to say I'm surprised they sold so fast considering they don't contain all unique characters... but no. Still not surprised they sold so easily. :P
Hasbro you better make more than four Trixies for the fall set or I will be forced to fashion one out of my own flesh.
Well, I was going to send a thank you card to Hasbro for white Celestia, but ya know, this works too.
@OctaviaThat's essentially what I'm hoping to clear up once mine arrives. I'm betting that it's your standard assorted case - nice little rows, in order, of bags containing each figurine. I've no reason to believe that, just because this is a direct-to-consumer affair, these are packaged any differently than the identical cases they ship to retail outlets.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOI never got to place my order
but... but... i didn't even know till it was over!i see now what i must do.-goes to Hasbro blind bag page-F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5HOWEVER LONG IT TAKES
So thrilled when I saw that boxes were on sale, but was tired and decided to sleep on it, little did I realise how high the demand was! ^^Still just as well I've already spent a bit too much on buying up sets from ebay. Hopefully they'll restock after my next paycheck.Good work everypony if they sold that well perhaps Hasbro will start accomadating us more, maybe even provide us with a DVD season boxset. ^^
Pretty good deal considering that I paid $250 for these early last year. Shame they're out of stock!
I noticed the post about them at 3am est and they were already gone then
NOOO!! I was going to get them with tax money next week!!! Back to hunting at Wal-Mart and Toys R Us. :(
Glad I bought these when I did, I haven't been able to get on my computer all day.
@ViperaMost likely they are the same cases. Only unboxed from larger brown cases of course. lol You may get lucky and receive one with all unique ones. Though it'll be somewhat rare. Take a bit o luck.
I have mane6 thats all I need.Thats what I keep telling myself at least...
By the time I saw the first post about this, maybe just an hour or two after it was put up, these were already sold out.That's impressive.I hope they stock up again soon though. I wanted to get these.
One of the few things about this fandom living in NZ has, You can still find entire unopened boxes.
lets hope some stores actualy get some boxes.....i only need half a case...and 1 extra dashie to make into a keychain
Oh wow.We really could turn over something big, did you notice Seth? You could literally send us over to some place, and we will raid it. I arrived too late to this, and now I can't has blind bags ;_; The blind bags of MLP:FiM will turn into the Shinny Pokémon for me. Everypony has one, but me.I'm joking, of course. I have a lovely colection of MLP toys and McDonalds toys, and that's good for me :D
They're back up for sale now.
@ khyron What he said.I put my order in just now, i'll give my report on what figures my box contains when it arrives.Also, fyi for those who wish to order. Hasbro doesn't like PO boxes and if you do Paypal you have to have money in your account already as Hasbro also wants instant payments.I wanted to have this sent to my PO box that I use for my online sells/ordering but it wouldn't let me, so I had to have it sent to my house directly. You have been warned.
Ordered one LIKE A BOSS!
@ SCK, I'm not a "he," I'm a "she," but whatevs. :)I was terribly disappointed when I wasn't able to get one the first time they were posted. I checked back periodically to see if they'd be back and as soon as I saw that they were available for purchase again, I posted here and in the earlier thread. I wonder, did anyone who placed an order over the weekend buy more than one set? I ask because I had wanted to get an additional set as a gift, but I couldn't, there was a limit of one. It'd be interesting to know if they originally didn't limit purchases, but now, because of demand, they will only sell one per order.Good luck with your purchases, bronies! I look forward to the reports when you get your shipments!
HEY! HEY GUYS! THEY'RE BACK IN STOCK AS OF RIGHT NOW.i just bought one. :D
I saw this when it was first posted, and was like they are gonna go fast. Was considering ordering too.I would love to of seen Hasbro's reaction to how fast those sold. Put up one of the more popular products, hours later all sold out.
@khyronI only ordered one, so I have no idea if there was a limitation the first go-round.
Just got mine. There are no duplicates. All 24 ponies are present.http://imgur.com/a/tITKbImgur derped on #3, but it didn't cut out any of the ponies!
