how do they decide what is going to make it to the shelves?

i know myself and many other pony (and toy) fans have seen a ton of different prototypes or other new type of pony toys appear on sites like taobao and ebay etc. what is the actual decision making process?

how does it go from prototype to shelf or prototype to... well no where and why?

by the way. my niece is a huge fan of ponies (as am I) and she finally has all of the mane six ponies. and is currently obsessed with the blind bag ponies, but i'm not sure how she'll react to different versions of ponies. i know she doesn't have the newest princess' because she has the other ponies that come with them. buying ponies for her is one of my favorite things. i look forward to what you'll show us in the future.

Yes! I have been waiting for this *rubs hands together*

- Why is the Applejack figure the only pony with eyebrows printed on, and why does she have eyebrows but not her freckles?

- Why were the three unicorn "flower fillies" shown at Toy Fair 2012 never released?

- Can you tell us a little about (or show us) how ponies are made, from the design process to manufacturing?

I'm sure I'll think of more  :wonder: I'll have to go back and look at what was asked last year so I'm not repeating questions....

I won't be able to go to the fair but if I am still able to submit questions...

I love seeing older G3 ponies updated to the current G4 style.  Why did so many G3 ponies make the jump to G4 but none of the G1 characters have (sans Applejack)?

Is it possible that any G1 characters will  be released in the current style in the future?

Will more of the G3 inspired blindbag characters be made into brushables?

Are there any plans for Christmas/winter themed ponies in the future?

I asked this on FB too
Why did Hasbro decide to celebrate the 30th anniversary of PONIES by turning them into HUMANS? Why did they not release a movie of the ponies AS PONIES?

(Reporter voice) Hasbro, Hasbro! Why no seapony toys? Kids love bath toys!

Why are the mane six so frequently released?

My question is about the stallions. I want to know why up until Shining Armor, no full sized male pony toys have been released since the Big Brother ponies? Can we expect them in the future?

Why is the quality of especially the new brushable pony toys (like the crystal kingdom line) so low? (talking about color smudges, uneveness in the mold, aso)

Why are there so few pony poses (walking pose, standing pose, and... that's most it)?

Are there going to be more brushable waves with characters other than the mane six?

WHERE IS MY G4 BRUSHABLE MINTY?!

1) Will we see more boy ponies soon, like Big Macintosh in fashion style or brushable versions?

2) I really like what you guys are doing with the toysrus exclusive collector packs, any chance we will see more packs how about one with Bon Bon, Silver Spoon, Big Mac, Thunderlane, Flitter, Cloud Chaser, and King Sombra?

Yay!!! Been waiting for this thread because that means the fair is getting closer!

Here are my questions:

Lately there have been shirts and other clothing with G1 characters depicted. Can you give us an idea of what future licensing plans there may be with G1 characters?

How does Hasbro keep a pulse on what the fan communities want?

Where do you see the My Little Pony brand in the next 30 years?

Thanks for the opportunity to ask questions, Summer!
