Ah, remember back in 2005 and there were soooo many different G3 characters in stores we complained we couldn't keep up?

We didn't know when we were well off.

I remember squealing when I saw my first G3. Love them.

Oh, i know that feeling. Back than i was complaining how there were too many flower symbols and pink. Silly, silly me.

I love G3s, mainly because I have so many great collecting memories! G1 was my first love, but G3 fuelled my crazy collecting years  :satisfied:

I was working at a toy store back when G3s were first announced, & was lucky enough to go to the UK trade fair in 2003 & got to see all the prototypes. This was before anyone had seen anything of the new toys, so it was pretty exciting stuff- if only I could have taken photos!

I met so many fantastic collectors through G3... I lost count of the number of Winter Snows I traded for US ponies! I even managed to discover someone living 30 mins away from me through stalking my local TRU- someone who is now a very good friend in real life :) But so many good memories! The excitement of nearly always having a pony parcel in the post & the amazing deals I found, like Caribbean Delight & Beach Belle for retail on eBay. The mad dash to TRU or Woolworths to grab new ponies or going to Asda every night for a week because I knew they were restocking!

Impossible to pick a favourite, I'll have to come back to you on that one  :lol:

Aww I miss my G3s! I had about fifty MIB that I donated to the local police toy drive when I had to move from AZ to PA! I just hope they made a good Christmas for some little girls!

My G3 loves started with Breezies, but quickly grew from there! My favorite G3 probably is Mochanut, she is just so cute!

So jealous of your collections! :lol:
Kissthethunder, I love how you displayed them on the rock castle thingie. Where is it from? Oh, and I'd love to steal those winter babies! The holiday themed G3s are all so lovely. But the winter and Christmas themed ones are my favorites.

You know, I don't know what that mountain is from. I've been told it was from a lego set of some sort, but I can't verify that with any certainty as I got it at a garage sale.

Winter ice and Northern Lights have to be my favorite winter babies <3

kissthethunder, gorgeous hair on those! I started out re-collecting g1. I had over 1,000 ponies in my collection, including all the US mailorders except 3 (pearly babies...never finished them), and many Nirvanas.

I had to sell them when I got divorced years back, but I actually enjoy my newer cheap, large g3 collection more. I like the colors, the poses and the imagination they used. The playsets are ehh and you tend to lose pieces and break them easier (daughter tested them out, lol), but the ponies themselves are the sh*t.

I love all gens, but G3s got me back into ponies and they are definitely my fav!  I used to have all but about 30 of them then downsized to a good 150 or so of my favs (lol!) I still have every yellow G3 and I want to finish out the babies.  G3 customs are my specialty and fav.  The are a tad more elegant than G1s and still a lovely horse feel to them.  The variety is fab!

A lot of my G3s are boys in my herd!  I have families and storylines, I even staged a large pony wedding with my daughters!
