Its a new Pinkie Pie! But not really...in more than one way...
« on: January 05, 2013, 01:32:45 AM »
So this new Pinkie just popped up on my favorite news site:

She's only on eBay right now (and it turns out is bigger than a regular release but smaller than a Fashion Style, as per the auction description).

Sounds awesome, right?

Well, we've seen this before. This set. And this name:

Look at that. They even gave the FiM version the same G3.5 standard brush, and the same blue body squigglies. XD

I gotta add those pics of the G3.5 book updated with FiM images soon.

Oh, and this isn't the first time Hasbro did this. Back when G3 went G3.5, they did this to Scootaloo:

Ack, I wish they'd stop re-using G3 ideas.
I knew about the car and guess what? Didn't buy it. There are still tons of them on store shelves. It couldn't have been that popular.
I won't be buying this either. What the heck? Pinkie Pie with swirly randomness printed on her legs? NO, stop being lazy Hasbro.
I dunno maybe the "target audience" ie. kids would like it?  :huh:

Lol...I love it. Its like G3.5 is getting its revenge on us for disliking it so much that its determined to invade G4.

I love that they have copied her even down to the leg markings. Is she definitely not FS size? It seems really expensive for HB to have created a mould for one product which is hardly going to be a market driver.
Thank you Matcha for my gorgeous Baby Fifi avi :hug:

I kind of like her swirls, I just wish there was more of them because her design looks a bit bare.
And that Hasbro would stop their lazy one side only printing, but we all know how likely that is.

I agree, I think she'd look way cuter with more swirls - like a G4 TAF or something. I wonder what the G4 hairbrush says, it'd be really weird if they didn't change the spoken lines at all. :blink:

ML-085...

That's not by Hasbro. It's a KidDesigns toy >.<

The pony itself may or may not be supplied by Hasbro, but the set itself is not distributed by Hasbro >.<

Ok I skimmed over the part about a size difference before.  ^^;  I looked up the ebay auction and there is a comparison pic with a regular Pinkie Pie there. That's...weird. I still don't think I want her.  :sigh:

Ugh, and the old logo on the brush too. This is not what they should be doing with their new, revamped line.

At least they made a new mould size! Supposedly "exclusive" means they won't be shoving this Pinkie Pie into other sets.

I've already got a Pinkie Pie army, might as well add to it.

I don't mind them re-using G3 ideas if that means we get something slightly new in the G4 line. Differently sized, blue leg swirl Pinkie Pie is more interesting than ya know...yet another Pinkie Pie that is exactly the same.

That's. . .  Odd.  You'd think they'd try to make the set a *little * different.

Then again, it is Hasbro, so I guess not.  Sigh.
Happy 2017!  :).

All I can say is

WHYYYY?

Hasbro/KidDesigns you seriously could have used a better design to copy.
Like this one:

Instead you chose a horrendously boring design. Do you even want money?
