I haven't heard or seen anything yet. Another year, another round of trips scouting Hot Topics, hoping to find the glittery/crystal chase ponies. :)

All the current protos have been displayed and there are no signs of new Ponies. If you are looking for any crystals you can always go on the Funko Facebook page and ask. Sometimes you will get an answer. If you find out any good info, let us know!

What about those of us who don't have FB (got rid of mine over a year and half ago)
Also, where are the protos displayed?

I'm confused. I'm assuming you mean because Nodder has all the proto's of currently released vinyls, means there is no more proto's out there?

I might be missing something because I'm new maybe?

If there were new protos, they would have shown up for sale from Gemini Collectibles. Many of us on this board check the site often ("often" is a massive understatement) and we would have seen any new pony prototypes. So far, no new ones.

There we go, I figured it was something like that but confused by that other post. Since we're on the topic atm, how often are those updated? Do they just throw it up there whenever whenever? or is it certain times a day, week, month, etc? I'm assuming by your often understatement remark, it's an unknown time at ANY time. lol

Also, unless someone works for funko says it, who says that they put the proto up for sale right away? I'm sure they place some time between putting the proto out for sale and when the finished product comes out. So just because there is no proto out atm, doesn't mean nothing else is coming down the tunnel atm.

Yes, it is completely random. I've run down the power on my phone many times, just refreshing. Whenever Steve (the owner) gets a box of protos from Funko, they are listed and there is no set schedule.

Those are not my protos...They are ShoMeNodders.

Trust us, when there are new protos you will know it, as long as you are looking at the entire board and not just the Vinyl Section. When Steve/Gemini Exclusives lists protos the board goes crazy!

FYI - Popcultcha has two new ponies available for pre-order (no pics, though): Trixie & Twilight Sparkle. So, prototypes might be forthcoming.

It's out as a Pop, not a vinyl figure. (It's amazing what I know about this line, just from helping to track down crystal variants for the board. Lol)

Yup you guys figured it out!

Next to are the great and powerful Trixie, and Princess Twilight Sparkle! Hasbro would not allow them to do Twilight as a unicorn at this time so she will be an alicorn only!

Yea they are coming to Hot Topic first as far as I know, so they should have variants. Maybe that site gets them from Hot Topic and sells them on there site.

They didn't make ponies with such a complex clothing before. It will be bad if there will be no hat and cape.
On the other hand I hope that Twi will come without a crown and the other "princess accessories".

Spoiler: show
Still feel bad that AJ gets so less merch compared to the other M6. And again, even Pop AJ in not released. Hope they'll make it sooner or later.

Popcultcha is a curious site with curious ways. Somehow they got two of three Hot Topic exclusive MLP POP figures weeks before Hot Topic and they somehow had metallic Toywiz MLP POP! exclusives available a month before Toywiz themselves.

Probably because she's not a unicorn anymore. I don't know much about trademarks or anything, but I think all her merch from now on will most likely be alicorn. So they probably just wanted this to stay consistent with the rest of the brand.
