Hi everybrony. I am from Russia and I am sorry for my English beforehand - I hope we will be able to understand each other img-1520158-1-smile.png
 

I became a brony almost year ago, and before last 2 months I only watched MLP canon series, read fanfics (Lyra's "Anthropology" is my favourite one, by the way), and listened to variable pony music. But 2 months ago I started to collect some pony merchandise like T-shirts, posters, hoodies etc. I've even bought a pony case for my phone, and since that there are ponies on all its sides:) Some of my friends told me that I am crazy, but I didn't listen to them. I know that you know this feeling img-1520158-2-smile.png

post-16263-0-48446800-1370172872_thumb.jpgpost-16263-0-78136800-1370172894_thumb.jpg

 

And once upon a time (I think everybody now have remembered the opening book with a unicorn and this phrase FiM had started from img-1520158-3-smile.png ) I came to the children shop and saw a tiny-tiny mini-figures (figurines? I don't know the English word for that) of Twilight and RD for pitiable 5 dollars converted to US value. Of course I have bought them and started to dream of a moment when Mane6 will stay on my table all together img-1520158-4-smile.png I visited this shop every day after my lectures in university (and instead of it img-1520158-5-biggrin.png), but there were only TS and RD at the shelves. Shop sellers looked at 20-years-old guy looking for something in the children's toys by 10 minutes like on the crazy one. And 3 weeks after my searching I've found AJ, Rarity and Pinkie Pie figures there. I was full of happiness and bought them momentarily.

 

post-16263-0-52988300-1370173610_thumb.jpg

 

But there was no Fluttershy figure there. I looked for it for a month every day, and still fail. I have called all of my brony friends, wrote in social networks where I am registered at, searched on Ebay etc. There was NO single mini-figure of Fluttershy anywhere. Somebody have told me that there are no Fluttershy in this wave of blind bags that are selling in Russia, and this fact is scaring me a lot. I know that it is just a recoloured Rainbow Dash, but this fact changes nothing. I also have a fan-made figure of Discord, but I am afraid to place him near the Mane5 without the last Element of Kindness. I can't trust him even after an "Keep Calm and Flutter On" episode and bring my little ponies into a danger img-1520158-6-biggrin.png I have taken a big figure from McDonalds from my friend, but it is so large and breaks the harmony.

 

post-16263-0-87857200-1370174200_thumb.jpg

 

So I have lost any hope to find this figure in my cold country (yes, there is snow on the streets in June outside of my window now and -5 of Celcius degrees) and the only hope is to ask you, foreign bronies.

I want to purchase this figure from you by the post shipment from anywhere, or receive an information of online shops where I will be able to purchase it. Of course, I will pay every taxes including figure's cost in the shop, delivery taxes (independently how much it will cost) for its delivering to Russia etc. I think there will be no problem to find this figure in your shops in contradistinction to mine.

 

So I am sorry for this long post, but it was necessary to explain all my feelings. I will accept any help from anybody. /)

As you've noted, the currently-released Fluttershy figurine/mini-figure is a colour variant of the Rainbow Dash figurine. This is a travesty. Thankfully, a yet-to-be-released pack of figurines (more expensive than Blind Bags, but many of them have unique moldings) includes a new and unique Fluttershy molding. We've seen the prototype, but it's not in stores, yet. You may be better off waiting a little while, then getting that.

 

Alternatively, there's a pack with a book with the 12 most central characters to the series (Mane 6, CMCs, Spike, Cadence, Celestia) and the included Fluttershy seems to be the same as the new mold... but I have no idea how to get it outside of my own local shop - I can't find an online listing that isn't on eBay, and isn't incredibly expensive.

 

More to the direct point of this topic, I only have the clear and glitter versions, and have no duplicates.

Well, this is the best I can do for now unfortunately. There are a few people selling this figure on websites like Ebay and Amazon, which I shall link you to now.

Hope I helped.

What do the words "mold, moldings" mean? I can't find the correct meaning in online dictionaries, and I am afraid of some "new, unique moldings" on the figurine. Can you describe it simplier? smile.png

Thanks for the links. Unfortunately, the first one can only be delivered in the border of United Kingdom - it is so far. And the second figurine is great, but, as you have said, it's transparent. I need original one like the first link:

My main hope is that somebrony has seen this one in his local stores... It is very hard to find something pony-associated in my town, especially something concrete (specific).

I'm referring to the shape of the unpainted plastic. ("Mould" is an alternative spelling.) The original Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash figurines use the same mold, which is to say that they are produced by the same machine, then painted. New Fluttershy uses a mold that actually looks like Fluttershy.

 

Here's the preview: http://i2.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/496/222/fbd.jpg

I think the word in Russian is «?????», but my Russian is very very poor, so I'm not sure.

 

What he means is that there is a new Fluttershy figure that is unique, and looks like Fluttershy and not Rainbow Dash, but it hasn't been released in stores yet.

 

The new Fluttershy figure is much better and it's best to wait for it to come out, then maybe it'll appear in your stores, or another brony can send you one.

I have understood it. The greatest Russian equivalent is "отливка". Don't study Russian - save your nerves. It is very, very hard to learn and it is absolutely useless outside my country. English is many times easier and more useful.

[offtopic off]

 

I am afraid of the fact that the size of new-wave Fluttershy mold will not match the size of previous waves' molds. All figurines must be the same size for the harmony.

Maybe there are some three-figurine packs including Fluttershy, like Apple Family Pack, that includes Applejack, Granny Smith and Big McIntosh, or Wonderbolt Pack with RD, Gilda and Soarin? Though I have never seen a pack I need...

Those packs match the size of the molds that you have. If you look at the preview of the picture, you will see Rarity in there. This is the same exact Rarity that you own. Therefore, the new Fluttershy is the same size.

 

I agree on waiting until that Fluttershy comes out. That is exactly what I am doing, too. If you get the box, you will have another Rarity, but you could always sell her, or display her at another part of your room.

 

I bought those boxes with the Apple Family, the Royal Family, etc, because they contain figures that are not included in regular packages, like Shining Armor, Cadance, Gilda, and Zecora. The Wonderbolt in Rainbow Dash's box is neither Spitfire or Soarin. They do have those figurines, but they are translucent and would not match any of the other ones that I own. So I am waiting for regular ones to be released as well.

 

Hope this helps. :)

Oh, you are right. I didn't look at Rarity in that box before. But, as I have understood, that picture is only preview, and that box haven't released at the stores yet. But I have a large doubt that this box will appear in my country - even several months after US releasing (end of 2013 and later). And how can I get the information about US releasing of it? It is a bit difficult for me to search something that I can't determinantly describe in US Internet.

 

And still, I like the old Fluttershy figurine more than the new one. The legs of new Fluttershy are so thin, just compare them with Rarity's legs. They are 2 times thinner, she will look ill near the other ponies.

 

Sorry, if I am tiring you even a bit. It is really nice to communicate with civilisated people in contradistinction to the Russian trashbox Internet.

Don't go to 4Chan! Your illusions will be shattered like glass!

Now that you point it out, the proportions are a bit different... However, when comparing them to the animation, I don't think it's that Fluttershy looks thin, so much as the figurine ponies tend to look a bit fatter around the legs. I'm not sure if this a trend or not, but some of the other newer designs are doing the same thing - the Wonderbolts and Lotus Blossom, specifically - seem to have a thinner leg structure.

 

And, frankly, I just can't take pink-haired Rainbow Dash seriously.

Ah, I knew I must have made a mistake! I agree, it's very hard. I studied it for a few months, but I'm not good at all yet. I'm not studying it now, but even if I can't use it outside of a few countries, I would still like to learn it. But I collect languages, because I'm a little bit crazy. tongue.png

 

And yes, it's nice to hang out here where people are very kind and civilised. And like Mr_SP said, don't go to 4Chan, it's like our version of Udaff.com.

 

Back to topic, I really should start picking up a few figures too, but in my area they're very rare for some reason...

I know that 4Chan is a trashbox, it is well-known fact even for foreign people img-1523593-1-smile.png

 

And how can I find the preview source that you have shown me before? I need it for following searching in the web. At least, now there are 2 types of Fluttershy figurines instead of one type (before creating this topic), that are worthy to be placed near other 5 ponies I have owned already. Just one thing remains - to find and get one of them img-1523593-2-smile.png

 

Are you sure that there are no single old Fluttershy version (in little transparent box or a blindbag) at the shelves of the biggest shops like Walmart etc.? Maybe somebody have seen it there... I can't believe that it is hard to find something pony-related on its "motherland" behind the ocean img-1523593-3-smile.png

 

Well, now I think that both versions, old or new, are worthy to be bought.

I'm not in America. While not as limited as you are, I don't have quite that many options - there has literally only been one wave of Blind Bags available here, and some of the boxed minatures. And, no, there are no 3-packs with Fluttershy in them (yet), nor does that Blind Bag wave have Fluttershy as an option, assuming that it's even on the shelf should I look. Like you, I would need to utilise the internet to find a normal Fluttershy figurine.

I am a bit jealous to you - you can watch the original MLP serial without any difficulties. It is hard to understand something like very fast Pinkie Pie speech only by hearing :) And only subtitles are able to help in this situation... Russian translation and voices of MLP are the ugliest thing I have ever seen and heard - I can't watch it because after 1 minute of this ear-rape I want to cut my ears off and throw them out of my window :D

Thanks for participating in my (our?) Fluttershy problem. I have searched for the figurine today on eBay for 3 hours without a break, but I still didn't find anything suitable... I have no idea where else it can be found. Maybe someone else will be able to help us (I guess that you are looking for Fluttershy too).

If you want to easily follow the American release of a certain item, I would regularly follow Equestria Daily. Just today they made this post: http://www.equestriadaily.com/2013/06/cake-family-babysitting-fun-set-revealed.html

 

As for where you can get them, you can try to find them on ebay, or you can by them on Toywiz. They ship worldwide. You would be able to find that set at this link: http://www.toywiz.com/mlpfimpvc.html

Although they haven't put the Babysitting Fun Set up yet... interesting.

 

You can also get individual molds from here: http://www.toywiz.com/mlpfriendship.html

 

If you click on the Series links, some of them will list that Fluttershy mold. The only problem is that you have to pay the big bucks for international shipping.

 

Hope this helps. smile.png

Correct me if I'm wrong, but they don't list the New Fluttershy pack, either... On the other hand, a bunch of other stuff that I hadn't heard about!

 

On a side note, Royal Surprise Set... includes unicorn Twilight. *facepalm*

Great! It is that I looked for for months! The international shipping is not a problem, I need at least six Fluttershies for all my brony friends who need it too. I think there will be one shipping tax for all figurines being packed all together.

 

But what are the differences between series 1, 2 and 5? They are looking the same, but the prices are different. Series 3 and 6 are transparent, and serie 4 Fluttershy is the cheapest, but it has orange cutie mark and the same colour mane biggrin.png I guess that it is just a picture mistake because there is a pony with a similar colours but another name, but I don't want to risk. It will be a disaster to obtain several orange-mane "Fluttershies". A huge butthurt for Russian bronies will be guaranteed.

Odd. There seems to be a tiny colour variation, but it might just be the light. Otherwise, 1 and 2 come with different card designs, but there's still some *crazy* prices, there. I have NO IDEA why Series 5 is so expensive. Are they that rare?

Wiki has told me that there were some problems with Serie 5 Fluttershy appearance in stores due to unknown reasons. It is strange that all other figurines from this Serie are selling even now without any problems in contradiction to Fluttershy, that is still very rare guest at the stores' shelves.

 

Of course, several dollars is not a money, but this price differentiating between Series is so strange.

 

Added hour after...

 

Terrible! I have just tried to make a checkout on toywiz.com site (that one you have given me before) and... there is NO Russian Federation in list of countries that are available to deliver in! I have searched for it in the list for 5 minutes and found nothing. There are f*cking Cayman Islands and Barbados in the list, and the largest world country is not there. I have no words to decribe my wrath.

 

Maybe there are another MLP mechandise sites... I don't know any of them except toywiz.com or welovefine.com. Sorry for emotionful speech.

 I actually have an extra fluttershy I would be willing to sell. I actually unbagged this one today. I'm in Canada so I don't know what shipping would be but I do have an extra.

You are a lucky man :) Of course, I am ready to buy it. You can go to ups.com, and register there. Then we can contact via Skype, ICQ etc. and I will tell you the address and the postal code. With that you will be able to calculate the cost of shipping to Russia on UPS site online. I think we can come to terms about figurine's price. I will pay every shipping taxes by Visa card, if you have it. Edited by renat
