G4 Buildable Vinyl Figures - odd little creatures
« on: May 29, 2013, 09:10:50 PM »
I found these little guys on Taobao (though something led me to think I was only getting Pinkie Pie, bonus I got them all instead!) They're about 2" tall vinyl figures who come in coloured eggs like they belong in a prize machine of some sort and you build them by attaching their manes and tails which come separate to their bodies! They're so strange looking but I'm really quite pleased (and amused) by them!

I asked my Taobao agent to get a few sets but they only had one, so I don't know if this was the only set or if the others were just sold but this is the first I've seen of them. Has anyone else seen or got them??

They look like their cheeks are stuffed, but aside from that, interesting.
When the Equestria Girls dolls show up in stores and you end up with unneeded doubles, PM me! I'll buy them!/i]

Those look like something that will either come in a kids meal for a restaurant or the coin machines.
Very odd looking.
Are you planning on rearranging any of the manes or tails?

Ah so Gatcha is a type of machine these come in? I see! I know the sort of machine, they have one at a pub near where I live but didnt know what it was called. How did I not think of frankenponies??!! Lol!

Haha I'm most amused by how disgruntled RD looks with her hair on the floor!! :silly:

Now that you mention it, is it possible they could be made for the Japanese MLP franchise and that they could be testing them for other countries?

Cool! Great find!  I'm sure those won't have been available in the US because of the small parts

Haha yup, if you google "gashapon" you'll see that the whole idea of a capsule toy is called such, though it mainly refers to ones from Japan. TOMY, the makers of these G4 toys, spell it as "gacha(pon)" in the English-speaking world. :)
(FUN FACT - TOMY is actually Tomy Takara, and where have we seen Takara associated with ponies before? ;))

I hope they're an international release! (Judging from the pamphlet's French and Spanish translations, I'd assume they are - maybe Canada and Latin America, anyway, depending on the small parts laws :P)
