G1 MLP to Grand Champions Clydesdale comparison?
« on: May 22, 2014, 04:49:42 PM »
Fellow ponies, I'm in need of a few comparison pics and a bit of general info, too.
I have the opportunity to get a Grand Champions Clydesdale for a custom project but I'd need to know how they look like next to a regular adult MLP and if there are any HTF Grand Champions (don't want to butcher something a collector would appreciate).

The Clydesdales in question are brown/white mares with black/white manes/tails.

For comparison pics I'd love to see any Clydesdale, male and female, next to a regular adult G1. Thanks a lot in advance! :)

Thank you, HathorCat and BabyLicketySplit! :hug:
I'm still looking for a direct comparison to an adult G1, though.

That sounds like the Gypsy Vanner mare, can't recall her name at present but I do have her - however she's pretty deep in storage. If I get the chance to dig her out though, I'll take a pic for you. They are larger though, I'm thinking the pony would be two thirds the GC's height from memory, although it's been probably 6 years since she's actually stood next to a pony, so please don't quote me on that.. Also it would depend on if it were a pony in a pose like Sundance, or something standing taller like Dancing Butterflies, or Pony Bride, as well.

To answer your question about rarity though, that particular mare is pretty common, if it is in fact her.

Thank you so much, Stormess :)
It doesn't matter which adult G1. Allthough I would slightly prefer Firefly, Twilight, Applejack or BowTie. I'm toying with the idea of making a G1 Tirac custom, that's why ;)

Grand Champions plastic can be tricky to work with if you plan any cutting and reassembling.  If I remember correctly that GC series was close to Breyer classics in scale, I can easily get a shot of those next to one if you want.

you may want to check with texasgal she seems to know much more about grand champions. i do believe however the clydesdales are pretty sought after. and im guessing gypsy vanner especially if its a male perhaps might fetch a good price rather than tearing him up if hes in nice condition.    im just beginning to learn about their values etc.   

here is a pic for you:

Thank you very much! They're smaller than I thought they'd be, but the size is still good. Thanks for the information on the values, too. I think I will go for a mare anyways because that running pose looks a bit off together with the ponies :)

Grand Champions plastic can be tricky to work with if you plan any cutting and reassembling.

I figure they'd be similar to Barbie horses. All I need to do is behead them and I have good tools to saw through plastic :)

Eee can't wait to see it, Zapper!! Are you going to use a He-Man doll for the upper half? XD

Muaha, thanks! I have no clue if I want to use a doll for the upper half. The proportions might look weird. I was thinking about sculpting because the horse body is already static and so are the ponies. I'm itching to sculpt show-accurate RaMNC ponies, too. The original G1s look nice next to the GC Clydesdale but are still a bit too big and bulky. It is a biiig project so I guess I'll take a long time until it's done. I'm known for hoarding custom projects ^^#

If that is the case you are just going for a head loop off then maybe you can go with a Breyer Classic Drafter?  Or one of the Mustangs?  Here is a link to ID your Breyer, some of these are still current and can be gotten in stores and online http://www.identifyyourbreyer.com/identify/Classic/classic.htm

Does sound like a neat project, I have one in the works of a more fun posed G3 Minty, from one of her past box art drawings.

i actually may have a bait clydesdale stallion.  hes awful yellow from sun. i would have to try and find him.   but im not sure if someone could still restore him. hmmm

and i think diamonds suggestion is nice too :)   also GC plastic tends to be brittle in my opinion, not sure how good that would cut through. :P

Thank you, Diamond! :)
Yes, it doesn't neccessarily have to be a Clydesdale, but I figured they'd be the best for Tirac because they are big, heavy and have fetlocks. And I have access to some of the mares. GCs aren't that easy to obtain in Germany. I have never ever seen them in physical stores.

Your Minty project sounds great! I love everything G3 Minty. Make sure to show me your custom once you're done :)

BLS, if you want to part with your stallion and shipping isn't too expensive I might be interested. I will coat the entire horse in purple, so the yellowing doesn't matter. I will be careful with the plastic. Believe me, I have my ways :lol:

Thanks Hathor :)

Btw, I opted to use the G4 Princess Luna mold as a base for the G1 RaMNC characters! So if someone has any baity ones (discoloring, mane cuts, marks, whatever) please let me know! It doesn't matter if they're Luna, Cadance or Twilight. I'll need about three of them for starters ^^
