So I figured I'd get an MLP toy for my desk at work. I picked up a Rainbow Dash figure at Walmart. Then I bought a Pinkie Pie. Then Applejack. Next thing I knew, I had the whole herd. I don't have Spike, however. It appears you can only buy him as part of a set, and the prices being asked for on eBay just for Spike are almost as much as one of those sets.
Why are ALL the Princess Celestia toys Pepto-Bismol pink? And why do half the characters come with weird pets? Pinkie Pie came with a mouse, not her pet alligator Gummy, and Rarity came with a blue chicken thing, not her cat Opalescence. I don't think Rainbow Dash has ever been shown with a pet, much less a squirrel.

I quickly got my SO hooked on the show, now he's thinking about getting the toys (except he says they look like they are balding with really bad comb-overs). Our other roommate just chuckled when I mentioned how good the cartoon is, so I set his DVR to record the show. I caught him watching it last night. Yes, come over to the brony side. We have cupcakes!
