    Brushables: £4.97
    Tube of RD+Twilight+Pinkie+Rarity: £5.97
    Fashion Rainbow Dash: £12.97 (sorry, no AJs hiding at the back; I did look!)
    Friendship Express train: £23.97
    Train vehicles: £11.97 (only noticed Sweetie Belle's)
    Glimmer Wings Ploomette, Rainbow Dash or Rarity: £8.37

    TK Maxx, Broadmead
    Applejack barn playset: £7.99
    Pinkie+Sweetie or AJ+Star Dreams sets: £6.99

    and just for fun...

    TK Maxx, Castle Vale retail park, Birmingham
    Playhouse Puzzles: Pinkie Pie only, £4.99

    Sainsbury's, also at Castle Vale
    Wave 3 blind bags, £1.99 -- a fairly full box, interestingly

    They also have fake MLP figures which actually look quite good to turn into an OC or something.

    I went to Asda last night and they had no MLP toys left at all. Probably getting ready for new stock.

    I hope this is the right thread ;a;

    Applejack and Star Dreams (euro excl.) on eBay for £9 (was £5 but they put it up ;__; ) from the Entertainer - might be in shops as well.

    They've got those in the Wrexham branch, along with a load of the others (RD camping, Apple Bloom & Sweetie Belle and I think Cheerilee too).

    Also wave 3 blind bags in there too.

    If anyone's interested in a fashion Applejack, there's one that's still reasonably cheap (for a fashion AJ) here. Still 4 days left though, so it might get ridiculous in time. I can vouch for the seller, got my first fashion AJ off them.

    Where's this confirmation? I don't doubt it, but I'd like to see it at least, even if only to laugh at myself :p

    I saw it on Ponychan, I think it was at whatever toy fair Hasbro had the NMM and stuff prototypes showing at (before comic con).

    Heh, fair enough. It makes sense, a lot of production line AJs have been showing up on eBay recently. Guess I just wasted quite a bit of money :p

    Oh well. I have my fashion AJs and that's all I care about. Might even be able to buy another one or two if she's re-released.

    If its any consolation noone knows what the re-release will be like, so your original MIB one might still be unique if they re-release with different accessories or a wedding theme. They also seem to have a habit of taking away the fringe on things, e.g. first releases of the small brushable Applejack had a fringe but later releases had no fringe and just all long hair. So who knows what the re-release FS Applejack will be like.

    I'm not actually bothered. There's no reason to get angry or annoyed over something I can't change. It will be interesting to see if there's any difference though. I'll likely get a new one just for the sake of it.
