I noticed that too. I was like, but wait, this looks nothing like a snowflake! She's still cute though! :3

And her hair wouldn't be red, it would be white, frosty blue, and silver. But they never ask me my opinion! The nerve! :)
BUT HOW WILL LITTLE GIRLS BEG THEIR PARENTS TO BUY A PONY THAT DOES NOT CONTAIN PINK OR HEARTS!? D:

I KNOW! No pink and/or hearts?! REJECTED!

In all seriousness, MintySocks is clearly a better designer than Hasbro. Winter themed ponies that actually look like winter=win.

Hasbro designed plenty of great winter themed ponies...Just check G3. Also don't forget that Snowcatcher was (in some places) sold before winter. I never really saw her as much of a winter pony.

Flickerswift, I wouldn't say for a moment that you were wasting our time! I looked at your link and I learned a few new things PLUS I go to marvel at the beauty of the natural world. Things like that are never wasted. :D

Oh, and I thought the five sided snowflake was a hodgepodge merge of a snowflake and a dreamcatcher. She's not one of my favorites, but so far I've been getting all of the $5 ponies..soooooo XD  I do love her hair, though!

I don't know much about the G4 line or show at all... but today I stumbled upon a picture of a G4 pony that I absolutely adore - she was playing the cello.  I play the cello!  And then I saw her symbol - a treble clef.  You don't play a cello in the treble clef!  She should have a bass clef!  *furious*

So don't worry, you're not alone!

Okay, I'm glad to know it wasn't just me who thought something was off.

The snowflake website is great; so thorough.

Lol! To be honest I never thought about that  :P  since the main reason I bought her was because Rarity needed her Opal!  XD  You've got a good eye for details though ^^ and I agree that the snowflake site was very interesting. I love snowflakes!  :biggrin:

Well it's true, you learn something new everyday!
I had no idea that snowflakes had 6 points - never having seen one LOL!
I actually assumed it was just random clumps of frozen rain..... clearly I had no idea!
I do really like Snow Catcher (&her Kitty) she's one of my fave G4s.

I can't get over the fact that her special 'talent' is catching snowflakes on her tongue. How impressive. =p

I still love Snowcatcher because SHE'S A JEDI.

Not a waste of time. Anything you feel is worth discussing is worth discussing! :hug:

I completely agree with you by the way... only thing I can figure is maybe her cutie mark is supposed to be a "snowlike" star, a cross between celestial and weather symbols?? But if it were up to me, it would have six sides and be MUCH more elegant. And her hair wouldn't be red, it would be white, frosty blue, and silver. But they never ask me my opinion! The nerve! :)

Funny that was one of things I though when I saw her.  That plus with her name I kept expecting her to be a cross between Star Catcher and Winter Snow or one of the Winter series ponies.

Wait, what? My Little Pony isn't Star Wars! Sure they referenced it in FiM, but does Hasbro think that means they have to put Snowcatcher in the Star Wars section? Wow Hasbro, wow.
