Well, of course it did. The 2012 Special Edition pony was Derpy Hooves, even if Hasbro didn't have that name on the box. The word "derpy" could be seen as offensive, after all. It's the grey crosseyed pegasus pony that's a fan favorite among the bronies. Of course all the Derpies would sell out fast.

Now watch the Derpies show up for crazy prices on eBay very soon.

Personally I'll just wait until Hasbro puts it on their website after SDCC and that one other con like they were going to.

It helps when I already scored one from China though...but without its box...

This is completely expected. Those who didn't want it for themselves (which I'm sure are more than any are willing to admit) are almost 100% going to make profit reselling them. There's no real downside to buying one that I can tell.

Predictable, for anyone involved in the fandom.

This figure is of Derpy Hooves, a background character whose distinctive crossed eyes occurred originally because of an animation error, having been incorporated into show continuity as the producers watched her popularity skyrocket over her peculiar feature.

The name was given by fans, and is so entrenched into the fandom that Hasbro seems unwilling to commit on an official name for the character. Derpy is out of the question because of its possible offensive connotations - they attempted it once in an episode, and there was a minor, but furious backlash from some watchers over it, justifying the redubbing of that particular episode.

I've watched an episode and it's not exceptional in any way. It's the same humor as every other cartoon produced in the last 10 years.

Jar Jar Binks encased in carbonite. Essentially a smaller version of what we have in the ILM lobby standing next to Han Solo in carbonite:

The visual look of the show is exceptional. Design wise they really nailed it. 10000000% cuteness increase from the old show.

Animation quality, music, comedic value, adult references, and people jumping on the bandwagon to spite other people. It makes perfect sense and is a rather exceptional kid's show.

Haha, that would be pretty funny. Although from the looks of it there would be a line of people rather than one guy.

I have to disagree there. My GF and I prefer cartoons to pretty much anything else when we get a chance to watch T.V., and there's a lot of crap to sort through. Furthermore, it's pretty rare to find a cartoon that is marketed for young girls (more than anyone else anyway) that also happens to be good enough for non-young girls to enjoy as well. It's not designed to just be "girly" if that makes sense. Reminds me of the old PPG cartoon in that way.

I watched it and enjoyed it. But I don't understand why the fandom seems more outspoken than Adventure Time or Regular Show or Futurama or stuff like that (which I enjoy just as much if not more).

Maybe because watching MLP is seen as wrong by some vocal folks but the others are not? MLP is designed so that younger children will find it appealing, but since it's a well made cartoon (and doesn't make me feel stupid for watching it, like some other shows I've "tolerated"), I've never understood why. I don't really care enough to find out though.

Or maybe Hasbro doesn't care that you can watch all of the full episodes on youtube at any time? I know most shows do care and remove anything that isn't a clip or fanmade video, but it's pretty convenient for folks to watch that way.

Even the worst Simpsons episodes have something i can relate to or find humorous. The adventures of Applejack did none of those things, the humour is non existent. i could best describe the humour as if Adam Sandler was trying to make a show for 7 year olds (On Purpose).

There were quite a few episodes I didn't enjoy very much (I saw the 1 hour pilot and then basically ignored the show for a long time), but I actually started watching the rest after giving it a second try and watching another episode I found absolutely hilarious and awesome. I wish I could remember the episode's name, but I don't really feel like trying to find it at the moment.

I guess it's just not your cup of tea then. At least you gave it a shot, which is more than most MLP bashers are willing to do. Still, personally I wouldn't judge any series by just one episode.

I don't mean to offend anyone's tastes by the way, i'm just sick of those fucking ponies. I hear that other cartoons like adventure time and regular show are also funny and that's fine with me because the fans are not shoving it in my face with avatars, photoshops, crossovers and obscure references. If you say you don't like the show or having it shoved down your throat you are then accused of being narrow minded and ignorant.

On GAF it's not too bad but outside of these walls is a very different place.
