Percy's Fast Food Toy No. 375 - Rarity (2019 McDonald's)

Did you know? 

Rarity is a white unicorn with a curled violet mane who was based on the "G1" ponies Glory and Sparkler and named after the "G3" pony Rarity. Her cutie mark represents her talent for prospecting gemstones and her love of art and beauty. She is a ladylike fashionista and businessperson who speaks with a Mid-Atlantic accent and runs a franchise of brand name flagship stores throughout Equestria; she operates out of an haute couture salon in Ponyville called Carousel Boutique. Despite her vain and melodramatic tendencies, she has a generous spirit and strives to create dresses that capture their wearers' inner beauty. She owns a pet Persian cat named Opalescence who is commonly nicknamed Opal. Faust's original idea for Rarity's Element of Harmony was "inspiration", but it was changed to "generosity" after the production team deemed the former "too much of a thinker, especially for kids." Faust was pleased with the change, saying it "really helped pull [Rarity] away from the stereotypical, unlikable debutante." She cites Audrey Hepburn as her biggest influence for Rarity, and also says that Tabitha St. Germain's histrionic performance "added humor to Rarity that was unexpected and wonderful."
