My Little Pony - CAPTAIN CELAENO!

My Little Pony the Movie - Captain Celaeno - Walmart Exclusive - Hasbro 2017

I've made several serious attempts in my life to become a Bronie. It's a life I can totally see myself diving into. And all my friends (at least the ones who know about my toy obsessions) assume I already am one. But I just couldn't ever get into the show and the toys just haven't drawn me in the way I would expect. But every now and then I see an MLP toy that excites me and I'll hunt it down. This figure of Captain Celaeno from My Little Pony the Movie was definitely one of those. The unfortunate thing is that this Walmart-exclusive figure never really hit the stores. As far as I can tell she was only released in Canada... until a few weeks ago when I found her FiveBelow!  I mean, if you have to wait two years to find a sought-after toy at retail, that's definitely a satisfying conclusion to the hunt. Captain Celaeno is an anthropomorphic parrot pirate voiced by Zoe Saldana. I'm kind of obsessed with her design. The green plumage and crystal peg leg are so cool to me. Plus the overall sculpt is great. Let's check her out below!










The above picture shows Captain Celaeno all geared up, but the series below will show her all stripped down.




That odd-looking leg cut is actually the source of her action feature. When you squeeze her legs together, her arm swings like a true swashbuckler.

















Here are all Celaeno's accessories: a hat, a waistcoat, two swords, a treasure chest, and Spike the Dragon.



























Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
