How about rainbow pony Windy?  It seemed like everyone had her.  When they donated their collections to me, I ended up with 4 extra Firefly's and 4 extra Windy's.

I dunno, but personally I wouldn't include the later ponies like Ice Crystal, Mimic, and Red Roses.  No doubt, they're VERY popular with collectors, but one of the reasons for that is that they're fairly hard to find.  So I'd say they're not as recognizable to people who aren't as into ponies as hardcore collectors.
Nirvana grails:  Reverse Gusty (upgrade), Peru Windy and Moonstone (upgrade), Brazil TAF upgrades, Argie Powder w/ white hair (upgrade), French Windy and Moondancer (upgrades), Spain TAF's, TE's, and piggies.  These are my biggest wants, but I'm looking for tons more nirvanas, especially Greeks, Brazilians, and Peruvians.  Feel free to PM me for sales or trades.  But please note that I'm also fairly picky.

I'd agree with that, like how Ice Crystal is popular with collectors but he was UK exclusive and even I never heard of him until I joined this forum lol, so the majority of people who just 'like ponies' and grew up with them, would be unlikely to know him? (great though he is)

 I think the Most Popular G1's are...
 1.) Firefly
 2.) Gusty
 3.) Applejack
 4.) Windwhistler
 5.) Peachy
 6.) Majesty
 Additional comments:

Applejack I choose because she's very distinctive and memorable (and enjoying new popularity with the new show too), Windwhistler was a main character in the movie and so got a lot of publicity then, Peachy and Majesty both really common playset ponies and used a lot promotionally.

 3. Applejack
 4. Sundance

1: Surprise
2: Firefly
3: Applejack
4: Twilight
5: Posey
6: Sparkler

I only say this as they are the G1 versions of the FiM main cast.

well Im not sure if she is popular but I do believe Sundance is one of the most recognizable ones, after all she have atleast 3 versions, normal, so soft and Twice as Fancy, and she was constantly paired with Megan in promotions and such.

If you mean most well known in the non pony collecting world too, I'd put Applejack, Cotton Candy and Bow Tie on the list. Maybe Majesty, the early MLP were in the Panini sticker album over here so even people who didn't have ponies collected the stickers.

I don't think when people think of the most popular G1's, they are thinking of the ones that inspired the FiM cast , though. :)

If it were to be done on most recognisable ponies to non-collectors, I would have to say
I think the Most Popular G1's are...

 1.) Firefly
 2.) Applejack
 3.) Bow Tie
 4.) Majesty
 5.) Peachy
 6.) Cotton Candy

These seem to be the ones that people remember from childhood in my experience :)
