My Rarity Army =) by SkycatcherEquestria My Rarity Army =) by SkycatcherEquestria
Started off as just a simple shot of the unopened "Tabitha St. Germain Pack" that just picked up, but ended up adding more and more of my prior merch to the scene until it ended up as all of my Rarity stuffs.

The desktop background I put together from art here and can be found at [link].
The comics on the right are the Rarity micro-series and then issues 5-8, the nightmare arc.
Fashion-style Rarity on the left, styled ad-hoc.
Funrise $10 plush on the right (I love this more than I thought I would, heh).
5 different blind-bag versions.
Normal 3" brushie, styled per [link], with a scarf donated by my daughter's Fluttershy, =P.
Crystal 3" brushie, styled by my own on-the-spot method detailed more at [link], with her own saddle.
The little bottle-cap magnet on the monitor I found at a local coffee shop; made by some craft person in-town here.
Not pictured: a McDonalds-edition Rari that my daughter gave me.

The three blind-bags up on top have their manes custom painted. Not sure yet if I want to do the other two.

(They gave Luna an orange crown... wut. Paint job will be in order there for sure, along with her feet and the crystal Rarity's saddle, which is still on the to-do list. The second link above shows a Applejack hat that I painted; I'll likely use a similar method on the other stuff noted here.)

Now to put most of it back in the desk cabinet and other slightly less conspicuous places before my wife gets home with the kids, and gives me a weird look. :iconapplejackwhatplz:

Don't think I need to say anything about bestpony, but I suppose I just did.

Of all the pics to see, this is the BEST. POSSIBLE. PIC!

Seriously, though, epic collection :D

I really dig the brushies and I usually hate those things.

wow a real big Rarity fan.
to see her go evil in the comics must have been a nightmare for you.

Wasn't sure how they'd handle it yeah. A bit spoiler here, so anyone stop reading if you haven't read it yet. At least it turned out that there was nothing left of her persona while under the nightmare influence. It was a totally different entity possessing her body and speaking, with just those 2 occasions (spike/sweetie-belle) where "she" was able to slip through for a brief second before being pushed back in again. That panel with the tear in her eye and expression on her face while being taken over was pretty heartbreaking though, as well as Twi rejecting her gift during that initial dream.

I'd noticed some comparisons between Nightmare possession and Marvel Comics' Venom symbiote, so thanks for the additional confirmation...which nicely refutes the various anti-fans out there who seem bound & determined to paint Rares as the least, well, harmonious of the Six.

She knows I like the show from watching it with my daughter, and that I collect stuff, especially for this character. I've mentioned that there are countless talented artists and musicians who produce things inspired by the show, and that it's very popular with an older audience. But I don't think she's ever heard the term 'Brony'. She seems to like Applejack though, and is a lot like her in many ways.

And most of this stuff is in view most of the time, just not arrayed like this for a photo. =) She doesn't know I have the Luna box or the comics though.

Oh that's cool. I'm a young teen that hides my fandom from my family.I really want a Twilight Sparkle and Rarity doll. I'm making pony plushies soon and maybe I'll show my fandom in a cuddly way. And I also wish comments had an edit button too. c:

Luck indeed, yeah. =) A Wal-mart half an hour away in an even more "rural" town than the one I live in, still had a nearly full box of Wave-3 bags (from well over a year ago, I think). And it still had the Rarity (middle-top/white) and the glow-in-the-dark Rari in the box.

You know, you can check the sterile codes I think, to make sure you don't get dupes.

I need the plushie one! I'm cosplaying Rarity for a convention and the plushie would make my costume complete.

In terms of Raritys I have 5 brushable ones, 4 blind bag sized ones and the fashion style one.

Also, if you're not anywhere near a Wal-mart and would have to mail order something like this, check out what she's done here: [link]. These are really cool customs of the one I have shown here.

I'm not even based in the US! I get all my US exclusive stuff from :iconyuninaoki: mainly. She said she'd been looking in her local Walmart for Rarity, AJ and Octavia but no luck.

I think the Funrise plushies are Wal-mart exclusives, but not 100% sure. $10 is the price I've seen in every case. Been seeing more and more Rarity lately, but still no AJ.

Not a bad mini army at all. :D I collect Rarity, too. :aww:

Here's my collection so far: [link] But I'm missing one of the blind bag variants, and the Crystal Motion Rarity which I believe doesn't come out until next month. :la:
