All the G3 Love
« on: March 10, 2014, 05:45:20 PM »
As of late I'm on a G3 trip, I don't even know why. I never wanted any G3s except for Minty, but then I suddenly fell in love with Autumn Skye when I saw her on ebay. Now I'm all over them! My little collection contains four Minties, Autumn Skye, Desert Rose and both versions of Merriweather - more additions to the herd are planned.

Despite the lack of unicorns and pegasi I really enjoy the variation. Some of the poses are so endearing and horsey, their bodies are round and strong. I have the feeling only G1 and G3 were able to pull off the "pony" in My Little Pony, that's why I look at G3 as little sisters to the G1s. They have so many similarities to G1 without being copies.

Let this be a thread full of love for G3. Share your G3 collection, tell me what your favorites are and why (photos welcome!) My current favorite is still Autumn Skye. I have a thing for nature symbols and her colors make me think of sunny afternoons in early fall (my favorite time of the year) <3

I do have a lot of G3s but most of them are packed up right now to save some space. But man, did they have some cool variety and neat playsets!

Here's my all time favorite G3:

She IS beautiful  :biggrin:

My favorite is probably Seaspray:

She is just so vibrant, both her colors and her pose, and I do like aquatic themes :)

And I agree that the G3s look like "little sisters" to the G1 ponies.  They do look rather similar!
Thanks to Shimmlight for the new avatar image  :biggrin:

Anchors Away and Seaspray would look amazing together. Love them both. Too bad Anchors is so hard to get. She's a grail of mine :inlove:

My appreciation for G3 has grown and grown over the years. When they first hit shelves, although I though "yay new ponies", I will admit to not being overly passionate about them. But with G4 and such a limited line at the moment not to mention just looking at the sheer variety and creativity that went into the early years, they have quickly grown to be my second favourite generation and one I really enjoy collecting :)
Thank you Matcha for my gorgeous Baby Fifi avi :hug:
Loa is my love god!
I love Loa more than PonyLady!

I'm kind of like you. I wasn't into G3s. In fact, I only own 1 I found at Goodwill. But, I've been slowly warming to them. I really want April Mist right now. For some reason, I love ponies with Umbrellas.

I love G3s. I have about 50 in my collection here, and a box of them at my boyfriend's house. I wish there were more unicorns, but I like that there's plenty of variety in the poses. I think I like the color combos the most though.

I have a hard time picking favorites, mostly I really like white, blue, and green ponies. Silly Sunshine, Moondancer, Minty, Marshmallow Coco... I could go on.  :P

And so jelly of that Tink a Too elish. XD

I G3 ponies also. Yes they do remind me a lot of the G1 ponies. I do still remember the day that I saw my first G3 pony in the store! I was walking threw the toy isle just to see what was there. I was not looking for any ponies and I came upon them!!! I could not believe my eyes! I had to get them all!!!! That was when the very first ones came out and they also had the Moondancer set. I was pretty broke back then just moving out of my parents house into my husbands at the time. But all I knew was that I had to have them all. I worked very hard and sold some things so I could get me some G3 ponies! :) Man was I a happy camper and looked them up on the internet. Later on into the G3 ponies I had a hard time keep up with all the new ones coming out. I did my best and was always so happy to see new ones every few months. Yes to G3 ponies!!!!

Most of my pony collection is NIB G3 ponies. I did have a lot more Lose one but sold a lot of them off. I would like to get them again someday but in there packages.

It does make me sad to see on some sites were the G3 ponies are put down. People have to remember that G3 ponies are the reason why we went threw the G3.5 ones and now have the G4 ones. So we do all need to be thankful for them even if you don't collect them. 

I have pictures of all my ponies on the link below on facebook :)

I think the G3 toys look really good, and had a lot of innovativ gimmicks that made them unique. There were just soooo many characters who never got thier proper chance in the apolight, though! And I wish there had been a fiesta flair toy... :(

I'm not a big fan of G3 ponies, some of them have really cool designs though, I wish they had more variety like G1 though. Anyways I have a couple left for sale if anyone is interested.

AquaticNeon, I have nothing against you, but it sure annoys me you use this thread intended to spread love for G3 just to say you don't like the line that much and advertise your leftovers :rolleyes:

Oh sorry Zapper, I was just stating my opinion I do think they have some really cool ponies for sure in the toyline, but in my opinion I still prefer G1 and G4. And just posted that in case anyone wanted them :)

Oh boy,  a thread for my favorite toy generation!  I love the colors on G3s, the variety without getting too gimmicky, and they're super cheap too!  I think it is really interesting how bold some of the ponies were.  Usually MLP plays it same and takes the pink and pastel route, but G3 has ponies from vibrant aqua with bright orange hair to bright yellow with deep pink hair.  I'm a real sucker for colors honestly.
