Karonkun over on MLPArena found this on TaoBao.

I have no reason to believe that this is fake or a custom… Ok, maybe I do. It’s really hard to tell most of the time, but I haven’t been fooled yet? Is that good enough? Probably not.

The general time between found on TaoBao to being sold on the shelves is like 3 months. So watch out for that!

This is speculation, but you want to know what my theory is? That this is going to be a special edition release for Comic-Con.

You heard it here first

    I really like her mane! =3

  • Supertide

    I find her mismatched eyes offensive.

    I really, really, really hope this is real! I would buy her the second I saw her in a store! :D

    Hmm, Eqd is reporting this is fake/a knockoff. I’d love for this to be real though…

      protip: there’s no evidence supporting it being fake or real. He’s just being overcautious. I’ll be here laughing when the truth comes out either way

      • plaster

        there’s more evidence supporting it being legit than fake. i’m not changing it

  • Comicon? Maybe, but if she’s heading to a con, I think there’s a good chance she may be heading to BronyCon.

    • plaster

      excuse me while we all laugh at that thought.

      no seriously, what?

      • Why not? Thousands of MLP:FIM fans in attendance, whereas Comicon is a bit more of an eclectic mix, and I don’t think Derpy is “edgy” enough for Comicon. In another forum someone suggested the pony collectors’ fair in Orlando, but I believe that only attracts several hundred people.

          well that would be a smart business decision… and Hasbro’s track record when it comes to the older fanbase is ignorant at best. They had the posters at comic-con last year, the Hub loves us and is somewhat separate from Hasbro. They have confirmed taht they are going again.

          We at the site have constant contact with the convention chairmembers and they would have mentioned something like this to us.

    • Fadflamer

      That’s one hell of a cruel joke, man.

  • Ukomba

    Naw, it’s got to be fake, her cutie mark is correct. Now, if there was only 5 bubbles, then I’d believe it. everyone knows the terrible track record they have with getting correct cutie marks and colors. ;)

  • Bryce

    I’ve got one ordered. Hopefully this ends up being legit.

  • Alice

    Please post the link to the item.

  • Soda Pony

    Compared to my Fashion Style ponies, the eyes look a little too big… :-\

  • Hawaii Brony

    Fake, real, custom made… She’s cute to say the least what ever the case may be.
