Mission: Pony Organization

Over the weekend, I recruited my mother to assist me in a massive reorganization of the collection. It was exhausting and multiple injuries involving hammers, screwguns, and nails were suffered, but I'm thrilled with the end product!

The squeeky wheel gets the grease

So I'm sure it is pure coincidence that after I blogged about Amazon pricing The My Little Pony G3 Collector's Inventory exorbitantly high, they decide to discount their price to $32.33. With that said, I still feel vindicated. :p

In case you were wondering...

In case you were were wondering why I hadn't been blogging as of late, this picture pretty much sums it all up. I wasn't ready to come home. I could have used a few more days of vacation. Although, it is seventy degrees today, so I can't complain too much.

I also feel that I need to acknowledge that I don't know why Amazon suddenly decided to double the price of the G3 inventory on their site and my publisher is looking into it. However, if you are in the market for a copy, there are other Amazon sellers and other retailers (including Barnes & Noble) that have it listed much more reasonably.

Stay tuned for more news on my upcoming G1 book later this week...

It's here!

The 25th anniversary Toy Fair press kit I purchased arrived! Alright, it didn't just arrive, it showed up over a week ago, but I've been so busy I haven't had a chance to blog about it until now. Anyway, I really like the packaging and it's a good thing I do since the ponies are basically reissues. Pinkie Pie is a brighter pink than the other Pinkie Pies in her pose, but unless you are all into slight variations most wouldn't notice at first glance. I was attracted to this set due to the packaging and the fact that a G1 and a G3 actually share a box. The front of the box opens to reveal a promo disk with various marketing info about MLP and a short history of the line in which Hasbro blatantly snubs the G2 line.
