Euro Wave III (Purple) / Euro Wave IV (Blue)
US Wave 3

A few days ago our merchandise person Folly posted about the Wave 3 Blind Bags appearing in the US, which was confirmed by a several comments including one pointing out that it was mentioned the items were on their way via a rep from Hasbro at the My Little Pony Fair down in Florida. It seems what is dubbed the “US Wave 3” is actually a combo of “Euro’s Wave 3 & 4”. So if you’re going to be hunting these things down, you’re going to want to grab both the purple and blue bags.

Thanks to J.B. who sent in the information and pictures to us, along with an explanation on what was going on. He’s also gone over how the numbering system works, which I’ll let you read some copy / pasta rather than my attempt to rephrase them. Here is a quote:

Now, for the numbering… It follows the exact same pattern as the first case release (US Wave III, or Pink series), but with slightly different enumerations. The Purple series is numbered 4x5y2, while the Pink series is numbered 8x2y6. However, just like the Pink series, the x and y represent the figure in the case, with x representing the tens place and y representing the ones place. In other words, 40512 is #1 of the Purple series (Twilight Sparkle), while 82246 is #24 of the Blue series (metallic Pinkie Pie).

After the page break we have a list of serial numbers and of course what pony is in the bag. You can also check out this gdoc spreadsheet which contains the codes for all three US series (Pink, Purple & Blue).

Credit for this information goes out to the Gulf Coast Bronies, and the mod of Steve Jackson’s FRAG – My Little Pwny: FRAGing Is Magic.

And remember if you can’t find them locally, you can always hit up for your pony merchandise, seems the Wave 3 figures are now out of pre-order (obviously).

    Thanks for a great website. When did wave 2 hit the US or did they skip over that one here in the states?

    • I think this is “wave 2” for the US though it seems everyone is calling them Wave 3. Personally I’m confused, I’ll probably just use the color of the bags from this point.

    As far as I can tell the US waves are different… wave 1 was the 12 pack with mane 6 from Toys R us, wave 2 was euro wave 1, and wave 3 is this, it’s kind of a weird mix things….

      Thank you Black Jack.

    i is terribly confused. i just got blind bags at toysrus and it was not either of those sets. the #3 pony was sweetcream scoops and #1 was twilight sparkle

      I am also confused… That doesn’t follow any of the case releases Hasbro’s done so far. It must be a Wave III (Pink series) release, though, because Sweetcream Scoops is ONLY available in that series. Hasbro may have changed the bag numbers again… What were the numbers on the bags?
