They'll make exactly as much money off it as they do every other exclusive. They only make so many of the things, and only sell them for that one day at that one place.

There's only so much profit to make that way. It's more about motivating the fanbase than actually turning a profit off that specific toy.

Apparently there will be a Derpy toy.

I'm not sure Hasbro will be prepared for the amount of money that will be thrown at them.

SO FULL OF AWESOME!!!! IT EVEN HAS MUFFINS ON THE BOX!!! SO WANT IT.

Making it a con exclusive is simultaneously both the most brilliant and most disappointing news I've heard in a while.
The "weird, for adults" toys tend to be convention exclusives. I believe long-time pony-fans have been given one ever couple years.

I'll likely pay out the nose on ebay for it. :p

EDIT: Now seeing the dates, I am happy. I'm on vacation that week and can hopefully try and time buying it on-line. I'll have to check with my toy-collector guru at the comic shop for tips. He has to fight for those He-Man exclusives.

Today I bought the mane 6 ponies in blindbag form, and then gave one to each of my cow-orkers, telling them why they were like that pony and why they were good to work with.

I kept Pinkie for myself, because I like to make people smile. And I sure did that today~

I decided to cross-post this item in this thread as well, since it's relevant.

I think it's a cheesy name.  Which is why I like it :D

MLP isn't exactly known for it's "tough" and "badass" names. Personally, the more whimsical, the better.

I dunno... when you consider that Applejack is a type of liquor, it's not quite as "whimsical" as some of the others...

Most of the stuff around AJ is booze-related... 'Applejack' itself, as mentioned, 'Appletini' in Bridle Gossip, the effects of cider...

So, she doesn't do Berry Punch any favors, is what I'm saying.
There is light and darkness in the world, to be sure.  However, there's no harm to be had in walking in the shade or shadows.

True...But for some reason Shining Armour struck me. Maybe it's just because I got used to the other names.
