    The GREAT and POWERFUL Trixie will not be upstaged by a mere electric rat ...

    Whilst Fluttershy decides that she's quite comfortable in her box, thank you ...

    I've been debating whether or not to get a Rainbow recently; I walk past the shop quite regularly. Yesterday I had closer look at the one they had in the window. I wish her eyes were done as nicely as the recent Minty and Starlight ones.

    :rolleyes: I should've known this would be the response. :p

    The other conundrum I have is space to put her (I live in a shared house, so I pretty much live in just one room as the communal kitchen, bathroom and lounge aren't suitable for storing items in).

    It's a balance between the regret I'd have if I missed out her when she eventually becomes unavailable, and the regret of having another large item of MLP merch to find the space for.

    Fortunately I already have a lovely Dash made by @CatyBlackCat, which satisfies my need for a plushie of her. :)

    No, the BaB one would mainly serve as an extra thing to hug, being chunky as they are. :D

    Well, a few days ago I had another look at Dash. Her eyes weren't as bad as I thought, and she was generally giving me a "Please buy me!" kinda look.

    Today, well.. you guessed it. I guess you could say this is in celebration of season 7? Yay? Yay! ^_^

    Her mane still needs sorting out a bit, but that can wait.

    Luna's like "Yeah, but I still get dibs on the bed, right?"

    AGH, and I just used a £10-off voucher on Pikachu. ... Possibly for the best, I'm trying to stop collecting the ponies. Big Mac is awesome-looking though. Eeeee-yup!

    He looks pretty good, too ... I'm currently awaiting word from SWMBO as to whether I'll be ordering one or two :p

    UPDATE: the answer was 'two' - funny, that ;) Nice to see that they didn't succumb to the temptation to offer his yoke as a separate item.

    I ordered Big Mac at 10am and already he's been dispatched, that sure was fast! It's a bit of a shame that they didn't do more with him like release him with a voice box (Peter New has said on Twitter that he would be willing to record on if BAB ask him) or outfit - having the yoke come with the bear is nice, but I definitely would've liked to have seen him come with either a Princess Big Mac or Orchard Blossom costume. Plus they could've also released him with a choice of three maybe four possible partners - Cheerilee, Fleetfloot, Marble Pie or possibly Sugar Belle, depending on how that upcoming episode turns out (which one would you choose?). Regardless, still looking forward to getting him.

    Does anybody know if BaB still send out the birthday discount things they used to? I don't remember getting one last year, but if there's a chance they do, with my birthday in a little over a weeks time, I'll wait for that before I order a Big Macintosh ;)

    I had a £3 birthday code, and have a £10 off £30
    Dunno what to do, I'm still missing Starlight and Trixie (now seemingly main characters) and now Big Mac... but the thing is I have so many and they take up so much room that I don't have! I keep saying "just this last one" and another one I want comes out.
    It's just really a collecting thing, so I might nip it in the bud. I'm not really losing interest in MLP, but starting to lose interest in hoarding so much merch.

    ^ Same, cutting out the very large merch like BaBs and the very small like blind bags.
