    Season 4 finale: all the girls to get multi-coloured manes (Dash goes er... more extreme?) due to having the elements of harmony sealed inside them or something - you heard it here first xP

    I thought Shadowbolt-Dash was meant to be in the newest Toys R Us exclusive set, like the Nightmare Moon one from a while back?

    I cannot remember where on earth I read that it might be the next exclusive set, but I'm sure I did. Instead of Nightmare Moon it'd be Chrysalis as well as a bunch of fan favourites, by the looks of things.

    Dash will be TRU US exclusive like Zecora, I believe, but not part of the set with Chrysalis. Tempted to get the set for her, Cadence and Shining Armour. Hmm.

    John Lewis has a pony sale!! 25% off most things (not blind bags). Southampton has the crystal empite brushies for £2.80 (finally picked up a Rarity) and also the princess packs for £5.61.

    Asda Southampton is currently stocking wave 7 blind bags - had a fairly full box - looks unraided!

    This is correct. Forbidden Planet split into two companies years ago, but bear confusingly similar names. Most of the northern ones are FPI, though Newcastle is an exception. FPI also has branches in Ireland and apparently one in New York.

    From my experience FP tends to have more pony stuff than FPI, but my local FPI sells We Love Fine Derpy shirts, which I think are a better design than the wide selection of t-shirts I have seen at FP / FP.com.

    Forbidden Planet South: www.forbiddenplanet.com
    Forbidden Planet International (Comics): www.forbidden-planet.co.uk
    Forbidden Planet International (Merch): www.forbiddenplanet.co.uk

    How could anyone possibly get confused between them?

    Ohh interesting. So that's why I couldn't find anything on FP.

    Forbidden Planet International already gets a -1 from me for their dirty trick of putting a Facebook search box banner at the top of the page, so if you're not entirely alert (it's 1am) you click onto the banner. Lame behaviour from FPI's web devs.

    Abingdon Tesco Extra has part of a box of W6 blind bags, the rainbow set, and a bunch of CE brushies. Still no sign of the triple packs.

    I hope we'll see the Cadence and Twilight princess packs soon. They've recently been sighted in the US, and if I recall correctly, the Celestia and Luna packs showed up here around the same time as in the US. Though, with the abundance of those two packs it might take a while for stocks to deplete enough for stores to order more...

    Finally got to go to Aycliffe's bigmassivehuge Tesco the other day... Nothing of interest. They had a section for blind bags on the shelf but they were 'temporarily out of stock'. Otherwise all they had were those Crystal Empire brushable thingies with the horrid glitter in the hair (So glad I got the normal brushies before they got rid of them.) and the rainbow blind bag selection... thing. Kinda meh. The Pokémon section got a lot more interest from me. xD

    Has anyone bought one of these yet? According to the website, you can now buy Derpy and Rainbow Dash, but knowing Forbidden Planet, I'm not sure how reliable that is.

    Please let me know if it arrives soon, I can't be arsed pre-ordering for the *third* time only to realise I need the money and have to cancel again. If I'm buying them, I want them *now*, not in a few months. >.<

    On second thought, if it dispatches soon, lemme know and I'll buy mine asap.

    Will do! If it's going to take months, I'll end up cancelling as well. I expect online orders to come within a day or two unless it states "pre-order" or needs to be custom made or something.

    So do I, but Forbidden Planet's release dates have been funky in the past. I've never bought anything off their website before though, I normally go straight to the shop, but there's been no word of these things being seen in the shops yet either.

    "expected May 2013"

    Did it say that before? I didn't notice...

    Well, I'll keep an eye open. If they're just going to keep shifting the goalposts I'll reclaim the payment (interestingly because it's paypal they take the money straight away. I thought it was pretty much illegal to take money before the shipping date and that Paypal accounted for that somewhere in the seller settings - welp, will see)

    John Lewis in Edinburgh have the masquerade brushies in- it took a lot of restraint not to buy Rainbow Dash there and then.

    The High Street branch of Waterstones in Birmingham (the one by the Pavilions) has one copy of the trade paperback of the IDW comic. Hard to see, but it's on the bottom shelf of the little extra bit of the graphic novels section (turn right past the main GN bit). That's the first time I've seen it anywhere other than a comic shop or online! Full price (£13.50) though.
