Personally I don't think the cartoon designs translate that well to actual physical 3D reality.  It just wasn't made with that in mind.
Sparkle gets it. Have you guys seen a custom plush that looked show-accurate from the front? Half their eyes are literally on their muzzle when you look at them from the side. Vice versa.

I'd say Nazegoreng and ButtercupBabyPPG on DA get as close to perfectly show accurate as 3D can represent from the front. But then again, for people who hate the big eyes of G4, they will probably not like those plush.

Yeah ButtercupBabyPPG's plushies look fantastic from the front and the side.

So it's definitely possible to make them look good in 3D

That Fluttershy Plush must be using some kind if witchcraft!  Even if a devoted individual can do it though, I don't think a lot of toy makers are going to go that far sadly...

It's likely a cost efficiency thing too, sadly. Plush like that Fluttershy have too many pieces for mass production and there's likely too much hand sewing involved in certain places for one like it to ever be manufactured at a "reasonable" or profitable price.

The best Hasbro "has out" right now is the 4DE plush...but who knows when people are ever going to get those.

opposite for me too! I just love those big animated eyes, I wish they were closer together on the toys and slightly bigger.

I just saw that Fluttershy plush and OMG! :drunk:
How many home cooked goodies and house chores I would do for that person to make me one! LOL! I would even paint their entire house inside and out! I dont think that Fluttershy would be in my budget because she looks sooooo perfect!

It's opposite for me too. I think the cartoons are cuter than the toys. I think the toys should look more like the show. To me, the G4 brushables kind of look more like deer than ponies. But I still collect them anyways.
