    I've never bothered to email Hasbro regarding STAR WARS toys and collectibles for various reasons so I don't know how long it takes a rep to return a message. Are they usually pretty quick about replying?

    I don't know. The response email said it should take less than 48 hours to receive a response. Counting that I just emailed them, we should hear from them no later than 55 hours from now.

    Cool. Maybe he or she will have awesome news for us! I'm gonna have to click on and steal your Happy Rainbow Dash smiley just in case it comes in handy in the next 48-55 hours! :biggrin:

    You'll probably get a canned response. If they haven't announced anything yet, I don't think some customer relations flunky will know anything about it.

    You are free to do so, my friend! Hopefully, the news will be awesome, and at least 20% cooler. :D

    Done. And done. :)

    Keep your fingers crossed. Gep might be right and it could just be a lame canned response, but hey...you never know. Chins up!

    I used my polite charm. Hopefully it will work!

    You don't think I can do it? [​IMG]

    A little nudity might have helped. That's all we're saying. :shrug:

    I just need a response about plushies. There's plenty of time for them to get a restraining order later. :lol:

    Another Vintage Collection paint variation that will drive the completionists and variant hunters even more nuts than they already are.

    Facial stripes? Or no facial stripes?

    Can't find any good photos of the Sonic ones all together right now so I'll sort that out at some point.

    Response received!
    Unfortunately, it's just a "Thank you for your interest in Hasbro!" form letter. :(

    Equestria Daily announced today that Wave 4 of the blind-bag Ponies are coming soon, so there's 24 new smaller figures without the rings.

    I'm off to England next week so I'll see what I can find, but Yorkshire....well I suppose they have to have something close to modern somewhere.

    Apparently! :lol:
    My dashing good looks! They do nothing!

    You wouldn't happen to know if these blind bags are sold here in the U.S., would you? And if so, where? I haven't seen them anywhere around here.

    They're described as being "Europe only" so nope, although probably only England is getting them in the UK.

    Amazon UK have all 24 Wave 3 unopened in the original box, but for £100. It isn't Hasbro that's selling it, someone's just got hold of a few and trying to profit of them.

    So if I find a MD's in England I'm buying loads. :D
