Today I'm going to spam you with photos of my Surprise (and Baby Surprise). This pony's gained a lot of infamy in recent years due to the story of her being one of Pinkie Pie's original inspirations.
I BINed the two of them together, along with most of Baby Surprise's accessories, for $25 back in '05 or '06, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Baby Surprise is flawless, like she was just taken off her card. And mommy Surprise doesn't have her factory curl for some reason, but other than that, she's pure mint. Most of my collection is not in this great shape (though I do prefer my ponies to be near-mint or at least look nm on display!) and sometimes I wonder if I should put them in a clear plastic case to protect them. (I always wonder if such things are a bit excessive; it's not like Surprise is rare at all.)
