    I nipped out to pick up the new Argos cat today, well I was excited to see a whole page of mlp , and they had the backpack towards the back. But what annoyed me is I saw they had the flower fillies set in there so I went in to buy it and all that kept coming down was the cmc set, I was really annoyed and definitely said my piece.
    But for all interested they also had wedding playset, cadence, talking baby spike, wedding flower fillies (eventually they will be in stock apparently) and the wedding ponies ( 2 for £15)

    :) just thought I'd let you all know

    They also have the vehicles and train still

    We saw the backpack in Argos yesterday at the weekly brony meet, said item has been out for a while in other stores however (I saw it in a shoe shop about a month ago).

    Oh, I'll be taking a look there then. I've been looking for a backpack for a while now.

    Also, what's the flower fillies set?

    The Argos staff said they get different waves of sets under the Forever Friends banner, previously that was Royal Castle Friends and School Pals. The next wave will be the Wedding Fillies (dunno if there will be a 2nd set too). They all come under the same code and its random what you'll get depending on their stock and they said it's not possible to ask them to order in a specific set. :rolleyes:

    This is the Wedding Fillies set:

    EDIT: Oh also I think they are selling off the single packs of Travelling / Suitcase Mane 6 with Animal Friend brushables in some places because they want to replace them with the Bridle Friends sets.

    Hah, I remember seeing that Rainbow Dash dress in a local costume shop before. There was a Pinkie Pie on at the time, too.

    Item 15 has the same description as item 14. Editing fail.

    Yep Argos is pretty fail it seems. I've never used them before except in trying to find that 1 School Pals set. On the Argos website under the same code they had the image of School Pals but the description of Royal Castle Friends (when you go in store there is a chance of either, but at the least they could picture both on the site and write descriptions of both and say "One at random when ordered"). Now they have the same School Pals image but with the Wedding Fillies set description. But if you order now online or go in store then you may still get the older stock (Royal Castle Friends or School Pals).

    It's the same for other stuff like the Bridle Friends, Train Set carriages etc. They're all under the same code and which character you get is random, you may also have a chance of getting old stock of previous sets under the same code.

    They'd make more money just having separate codes for each individual item...

    What does the duvet cover look like? Is it a bit different from the one that's available on Amazon and Play.com?

    Yeah, it says Magical friends and has Rainbow, Twilight and Pinkie.
    Rainbow Dash is on the pillow and judging by the photo it looks reversible

    That duvet cover sounds very tempting indeed. Still not sure about the wedding ones but I need the CMC brushables so it's probably worth picking up the flower fillies set.

    I picked up the duvet cover and pillow case today - its gorgeous! Very bright and cheery :D and and duvet cover is reversible (the other side is a pink colour with hearts and other shapes and pictures of dash/twilight/pinkie's faces).

    Too much want. Payday Thursday. Must buy ponies.

    So Spike says things like 'Can I have a kiss?' Well at least he isn't saying 'I'm a Princess, are you a Princess too?'
