Funrise plushies

Bellefontaine walmart has the new Funrise alicorn plushies so they are in the central Ohio area now. Still $10 like the 10 inch ones but are a good 2 inches bigger. Spaghetti hair still but has sparkles in it. About the height of the Build-a-bear plushies so not bad for $10.

Bellefontaine got all three but Celestia is coming home with me right now tongue

Re: Funrise plushies

Don't give two hoots unless there's Luna, but funrise already told me retailers didn't want Luna because she was too expensive to make.

Re: Funrise plushies

Yeh other than fan made customs the only Luna plush is that weird WeLoveFine handbag one. Might consider if the strap is removable, but I dont think it is.

How can Luna be any more expensive to make than Celestia, Twilight, or Cadance?

Re: Funrise plushies

The Fabric colors and the very large cutie mark are to blame as they are more expensive to buy and therefor make. Funrise wants to make them but can't unless they can find a way to cut corners (which the designer is really trying to do). Its a sad thing but alas what can we do hmm

It is not. I got one, because Luna is awesome. The fabric they used isn't that great, but considering the other options, I'm happy with what I got for what I paid for.

Hopefully funrise can do what they need to do to make a Luna plush a reality someday. Perhaps if more people inquired, they would be more inclined to find a way to make her?

Also wait a second.. The fabric colors... Why don't they just pull a Hasbro and make Luna purple and her cutie mark smaller? Or does funrise actually want to make Luna as accurately as possible? Or because there's already a purple princess they don't think two would sell as well? Curse youuuu Twilight Sparkle!!!! (Seriously. They already made a unicorn plush...)

Re: Funrise plushies

If I remember right (forgive me its been a while back) the designer has too work off of color ref sheets handed to her from Hasbro and she pretty much has to stick with it unless they make some leeway (oooooooor send her the wrong sheet or some corporate shenanigans as have happened with different merch). So here is to hoping Hasbro sends a partially incorrect ref sheet with cheaper colors : p

Re: Funrise plushies

Maybe Luna will be in the release eqd teased about ones with light up cutey marks or djpon3?

Oh and unless they fell off only Celestia has a crown and shirt/bib thingy (?) The other 2 just have the princess shoes. Twi is quite a bit darker and the eyes are stitched pretty well this time. Add that to the sparkly/bigger mane and the plush being 2 to 3 inches bigger and I think walmart derped on the price and just threw them in the same $10 bin as the others. So if you might want one start looking early as I bet they will be a lot more at other stores and conventions.

Re: Funrise plushies

I've seen the light up cutie-mark ones and the dream-light funrise plushies, but still no Luna.
Apparently that fabric is crazy expensive if stores want light-up cutie mark electronic plushies but Luna is too expensive...

Re: Funrise plushies

Oooh... ;a; I hope Marysville gets these in soon! I want Celestia and Cadance, will have to hold off on Twi due to lack of moolah.

Celestia is my favorite princess, I don't care how broke I am-gotta have her!

Re: Funrise plushies

No alicorns in Marysville as of 8am today Derby. Bellefontaine only got 1 of each so probably not worth the trip just for Cadance. Wish I bought Cadance while I was there but same thing, lack of funds.

Also EQD posted an ad they thought was Walmart having these on sale for $10 for black Friday....this was actually for this week's ad so might go up in price soon.

I would assume that a light-up cutie mark adds apparent value while the special fabric wouldn't.

I suppose that is the case. But i guess I just don't see why blue fabric or how her cutie mark is isn't work-aroundable somehow. Or even why Luna fabric is more expensive than Twilight or Rainbow Dash fabric

Re: Funrise plushies

My guess simce Twilight is a darker color and they have better hair/shoes/accesories that the people in charge just do not watch the show and are just clueless on Luna popularity.

Re: Funrise plushies

You in marysville tonight derbs? They just got the alicorns...I see 2 of each. I hid a celestia for you behind the big $44 plastic twilight box just to the left of the plushie spot on the bottom shelf.

....and remember they are a 24 hour store.

Even a background pony with no speaking roles gets more love from Funrise than a Princess with her own episode.
