• Complete Set of Wave 6 Blindbags Revealed

    The full set of wave 6 blindbags have finally popped up.  We have had a few posts dropping bits and pieces of the group in the last few months, but Ebay seller lipin2012 apparently got ahold of them all. 

    Head on down past the break for all of them, including some super in-depth information from Ace Reporter Whatshisgame!


    All of Blind Bag Wave 6 has been put up on eBay by lipin2012 today, and unlike when most of it showed up on Taobao a little over a week ago, the collector cards are properly visible! There’s also a pretty good look at the bags themselves (including their barcode); the star logo has the word “collection” under it (like on the box, but unlike on the collector cards), and the backs of the bags say “Crystal Empire” (right above “see more at: www.mylittlepony.com”). Anyway, here’s the scoop on all 24 ponies in this wave:
    • 01: (Mane Six member) Pinkie Pie “keeps her friends laughing and smiling all day!” Her mini-figure looks to be the same as in most other releases.
    • 02: (Mane Six member) Fluttershy “likes taking care of her friends!” Her mini-figure looks to be the same as in most other releases.
    • 03: (Mane Six member) Twilight Sparkle “loves learning with her friends!” Being part of this wave’s special edition trio, her mini-figure’s cutie mark includes a raised star.
    • 04: (Mane Six member) Rainbow Dash “is always ready to help her friends.” Her mini-figure looks to be the same as in most other releases.
    • 05: (Mane Six member) Rarity “loves to give her friends great advice!” Her mini-figure looks to be the same as in most other releases.

    • 09: (The Great and Powerful) Trixie Lulamoon “is great at magic tricks!” Being part of this wave’s special edition trio, her mini-figure’s cutie mark includes a raised star. Her previous mini-figures from Waves 4 and 5 both use Rarity’s mold, and the Wave 4 version is completely crystal.

    Right now, these can be legitimately pre-ordered in random bunches of 6 from Entertainment Earth or 5 from ToyWiz (currently for the same price despite being different quantities) and in boxes of 24 from BigBadToyStore, ToyWiz, or Entertainment Earth (currently cheaper at BBTS than at TW or EE). Wave 6 is apparently supposed to be the first wave of 2013 in America, but its release date on all three of those sites is November 2012 (the same release date that Wave 5 has on those sites).
