Fluttershy


This was a blind boxed figure from Funko I found at Target. I picked it up because I thought it might be a form of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic that I might actually like. I dislike the combable hair on the regular figures, but I like a few of the characters from the show so I'd be willing to collect them otherwise. The normal PVC mini figures aren't doing it for me, so I figured, hey, sculpted vinyl mini-figures might be a thing I could get into. (The larger vinyl versions are cumbersome and don't feel like toys to me. They feel like "collectibles." Emphasis on the quotation marks.)

When I opened it up, I realized that the all black bodies the ponies had on the box weren't, as I assumed, just a weird box design. Nope, all the ponies are painted pitch black. Which I guess is an interesting design choice for a collector's series. It just doesn't appeal to me. To tell the truth, if I had figured out that this is what they would look like, I probably wouldn't have taken the risk of buying a blind-box.

  1. Strange choice on the coloring because i thought the Ponies were suppose to be all colorful and stuff.

  2. Fun, almost got one. We got some MLPFM cake toppers for my little girly's second birthday. Surprisingly they were nice full size vinyl figures with rotating heads. Unfortunately, someone swiped them before I was able to pic them. Maybe I will go back for more. Only Apple Jack and Twilight though. Not that I am a Brony or anything...
