Need advice on the "Most Popular G1's" please
« on: January 22, 2012, 10:54:47 PM »
Hey hey there everyone! I posted this in the MLP Arena Facebook group already, but I know some people don't have Facebook so I'm posting it here as well.

Some of you may or may not remember me, I think the last time I posted on the Arena was in 2009. >.>;; Hello again to all the new and old pony fans! *waves a hoof to everyone*
 
 I'm  currently working on an important art project and it's going to feature 6  G1 MLP's as the focus of the piece. It's important to me that these  6 characters be recognized right away, so I spent a lot of time  debating what are the most popular (and therefore most easily recognized) G1's. I decided quickly on Firefly. I think we can all agree that she was probably the most popular G1 thanks to her appearance in the first animated special and several toy incarnations. I then decided on Gusty, I think she was pretty popular as a toy for her color scheme and on the cartoon for her spunky personality. But the rest of them have  me stumped...
 
 Then I remembered my old stomping grounds the MLPArena and MLPTP so I came back to get the opinions of everyone else! ^.^
 
 I  would very much appreciate it if people could fill out the following and post their answers. I'll use this to decide which characters are featured on my art project.
 
 1.) These must be G1's, no exceptions
 2.)  It would balance the art project more if I could have 2 pegs, 2 unis,  and 2 earthies, but that's not set in stone so it's okay to suggest  others that don't fit that criteria (I think Rosedust the flutter was  pretty popular maybe?)
 3.) It's not a must that the characters be  from the movie/specials/cartoon, but I think the animated features  really made the toys come alive for people so I'm more leaning toward  G1's that were in the animated features at this time. But maybe some  people think some later toys, like Rapunzel, are more popular?
 
 Post the following and give your opinions where the question marks are please:
 
 I think the Most Popular G1's are...
 1.) Firefly
 2.) Gusty
 3.) ? ? ? ?
 4.) ? ? ? ?
 5.) ? ? ? ?
 6.) ? ? ? ?

The only ponies I remembered before more recently getting into collecting were ones I remembered from merchandise or specials.

Firefly and Medley.
Applejack.
Baby Moondancer.
Glory.

1 Gusty
2 sundance
3 medley
4 moondancer
5 cottoncandy
6 firefly
 
But I vividly remember the seaponies but not there names
 
I think most of the ponies people have listed from 82-85 are dearly remembered hence recongized : )
 
I cant for the life of me remember mountain boys being on the show

2. Bowtie
 3. Applejack
 4. Sundance
 5. Cotton Candy
 6. Glory

I really like this list! (And I'm saying this even though Gusty is my personal favourite!:))
Maybe for aethetic purposes though, instead of two pink ponies, I would swap out cotton candy for Medley, then you have 2 pegs as well.
I'd also actually swap out Sundance for Moondancer (I like her but she is not really seen together with the others in the list!) then you have to Unicorns.
(I would really include Applejack, not only was she in the pilot episode - she was VERY commonly owned and appeared on a LOT of merchandise. I never saw the pilot episode as a child but grew up with applejack just because I saw her printed on soap, cot hangers, ribbons, birthday cards...she was everywhere)

Anyway, I think:

 1.Applejack -earth
 2.Firefly - peg
 3. Bowtie - earth
 4. Moondancer - unicorn
5. Medly - peg
6. Glory - unicorn
 
I think thats a good mix of colours and earth/peg/uni ratio and also they work well together because they were all in the pilot together and commonly owned ponies

1.) Gusty
 2.) Cotton Candy
 3.) Applejack
 4.) Bubbles
 5.) Medley
 6.) Moonstone

I was trying to think of the colour combination! A baby pony would look cute in there too and so would a flutter pony...
