Can this not be a Comic-Con exclusive thing though?
According to EqD comments the comic con exclusive ponies end up being sold at Hasbro's website once the convention is over, so even if you don't attend you can still grab one of these.
I'm actually considering getting one, wonder how much will it cost to send me one to Argentina - Middle of nowhere (no city in a 50 kilometer radius)?
why is it called 'shipping' though?
I believe it comes from the term "ship
" which is short for "relationship
Not sure if the people who brought up the term knew some fans would be playing Battleship
at some point in the future.
VEDJ presents a crazy yet plausible (considering the internet) opinion...
This merits some research...
EDIT3:TV Tropes to the rescue!!!
