Just wanted to give the heads up that Lyra and Pinkie are up for pre-order on Hot Topic.com:

Are they still making the Funko POP! ones?  I can't seem to find them anywhere.  There is a store near me that literally only sells hard to find products such as POP! figures, and yet I can't seem to find them there, or anywhere else.

Hey so I got some new intel:

 

While poking around on the web for information regarding the immanent release of the vinyl Pinkie Pie and Lyra figures, I found this picture on a brony Facebook page:

 

PROTOTYPES

 

img-1627649-1-1010310_554065334635400_18

 

 

 

All of them are insta-buys for me. Even though Pinkie is my favorite, I can't say I am not equally excited about all of these! Love this line..soooo much. img-1627649-2-wub.png

 

 

For all of you Spitfire fans (cough @~Chaotic Discord~ cough cough), I bet this is a very welcome surprise. img-1627649-3-wink.png

 

 

When I have the money, I'll definitely be getting Spitfire, Vinyl Scratch and/or Octavia.

 

these look pretty good. Though I have no Hot Topics anywhere near me. Guess I"ll have to wait for a trip to the city.

The Pop! figures are only sold online. 

 

For the Funko figures that are out, I have Fluttershy and Derpy, and my girlfriend has Rainbow Dash and Doctor Whooves. I'm very excited for Pinkie and Lyra, Pinkie especially. Also, I'm SO glad that Rarity and Applejack will be made. It angered me that they weren't made as Pop! figures. I know Derpy and Vinyl are more popular among bronies, but still... 

 

I'm happiest with the Fluttershy figure. I love her so much! I felt like Rainbow's and Derpy's faces were too square and oddly shaped.

 

Funko figures are definitely my favorite (and most show-accurate) pony merchandise.

Does anyone know a store in Canada (or even the US) where the Pinkie and Lyra vinyl figures will be coming out? I want to get one but I have no idea from where. Any places other than Hot Topic?

I don't think they're officially out yet.

Right now it's only Hot Topic, but I know Toys R Us is slowly getting them in, F.Y.E. and Suncoast usually get them in as well.

The $10 one is a preorder.  My guess is that's actually the Funko Pop! figure as $10 is the usual price for those.

I don't think any of them except Pinkie and Lyra have release dates yet.

I already pre ordered mine! Lyra and Pinkie should be hitting shelves in mid August I think. I'm interested in how the next pairing is going to go. so far is been a main 6 pony paired with a background pony but the next 4 after Lyra n Pinkie are Dj Pon3, spitfire, Octavia, and Bonbon. I'm guessing Bonbon and spitfire will be released together and Dj Pon3 n Octavia will be released together.

ah the difference is the second wave of Derpy figures has a different paint app and design for her cutie mark so I guess the first wave derpys go for more now.

*&^% YEAH! scratch makes the cut again! :)

can NOT wait!

love the attention shes getting lately.. special comic con editions, an official hair doll one.. she's getting to be more famous than derpy, and she's gotten so little air time its outrageous.. ANY pony else has had more air time than she has! Maybe with an exception to Octavia.. but unsure of that.

Indeed.

 

At Comic Con it was kind of alluded to that DJ Pon3 will be involved in a song, perhaps even sing!

 

"Daniel: 15-20 new songs in S4. Bringing in new singers (new characters). Somebody joked “Derpy” and Daniel asked who else. People call out tons of names and he repeats a few out loud: Luna, DJ-PON3, Sapphire Shores."

wow! ok today i want from feeling like the luckiest brony ever to being the saddest brony ever in a matter of moments. i went to Toys R Us today and what do i see on the shelf, Funko Spitfire and Bon Bon!!! i snatched them up and went to the checkout. when i get there they wont scan so she calls her manager... the manager sais they cant sell them because they shoulden't be on the shelves until 9/9/13. i must have looked like this no__don__t_cry__lyra___it__s_too_sad____by_cthulhuandyou-d4gpa5r.png on the plus side she is holding them for me until they can be sold.

 

so i can give everyone this info. the street date is 9/9/13. n it dose say Sweet Drops on her box not Bonbon. also Spitfire looks really cool she has this very cocky expression on her face that's just perfect. n we can assume the next release will be Octavia and DJ-Pon3 together.

 

(i had to edit this because ether i was blinded by excitement n missed the name on the box or there are variant boxes but i was probably blinded by excitement).

Eventually i may be able to swim in a pile of Vinyl Scratch stuff :)

I can confirm this, got mine at hot topic in store. They even tried to get me to get the sparkly pinkie one.. not interested.. unless its Vinyl Scratch, I'll just get the regs :P

 

TBH it was the excuse i used to end up at the one mall out here with build a bear so i could get the twilight and spike :)

trying to find an excuse for next week so i can go back and get Rainbow Dash.....

Orly? The link must have not updated or something as the page still showed it up for pre-order.

Regardless, imma blow some of my check on them now and regret it later come this weekend.

Wow very cool about the super early release. Very moronic that they abide by some release date that frankly has no real standing.

 

I have not checked out my local stores yet but apparently you weren't the only one to run into these.

As for Pinkie and Lyra, GREAT molds having them in hand. The QC as with past releases is something that is to be desired though. I went through more than 10 of each one to pick the most decent one. I may pick up a second pinkie though, because while her window display side is quite perfect, her in-box-non-visible eye has small scratching on her pupil. Minor but her being my favorite pony I strive for excellence. As for Lyra the one I picked is great all the way around. B)

 

Happy hunting to all! As for advice for your selection, watch the eyes, Lyra's painted mane and tail, and Pinkie's cutie mark's balloon strings: more than half of the ones I went through had misaligned balloon strings.

 

That is all! ;)

See!!! but i get mine yanked from me by the Cranky  Doodle of store managers.  :angry:  Seriously he was a jerk about it... maybe because i'm was trying to buy ponies while wearing my Rainbow Dash shirt. i dunno people are funny about that, the woman at the counter was nice at least.
