I don't really like them, tbh i think they look scary, but i never saw one in person.That could change if i see one in real life, but for now the further they are to me the better i am.

When I first saw one in person instead of a rusty-eyed photograph, I found they aren't all that objectionable. I'm not excited enough to collect them, mind you, but I don't find them that bad.

i think they photograph bad because their eyes have extra planes of dimension that catch shadows really bad and it gives them gross black lines around their eyes!!! i really want to get one in person because im sure they are a whole lot cuter in person.

I've always liked them. Rusty eyes aren't nice, but they aren't really that ugly. I may be biased, though, because baby Shady was given to me as a present by a very dear pony trading friend who has since passed away, and so I have a strong fondness for her and can't see her as ugly.

They're fine. There are more ugly ponies in my opinion. I think that the mostly the thing that puts people off is eye rust.

It's more the strange reaching poses I dislike than the eyes themselves. I dislike the eyelash sweetheart sister's more.

I kinda like the BBE pose but I agree, the eyelash princess are atrocious, especially, if their lashes are smooshed. I never thought I would think that about a G1 pony.

Um well I think Hasbro could have done more with them.
For instance the BBE sunlight prototype that I have I think is beautiful. Imagine her and a baby sunlight?

How cute would mommy and baby bbe sets have been?

There are definitely people who like them.

Not me though, lol.  Their head sculpts are some of the worst in G1.  Their doll-eyes are completely round, and in order to make them 'fit' in a baby pony's head, they bugged out their eye sockets.  (Note that the BBE Sundance prototype does not have this issue since adult ponies have larger heads.)

The baby unicorn ponies have something weird about their mold that makes their hair go in a permanent mohawk half the time, and both they and the baby earth pony mold have bad sculpting on their legs and necks.  So it's not even "ew, rusty eyes".  They are just lousy molds IMO.  I feel like they were cranked out at the last minute.

The baby pegasus BBE mold is the best one (basically a copy of Heart Throb's mold), and would look pretty cute if it had normal eyes.

Edit:  Here's an example of the infamous "BBE unicorn mohawk".  I can't believe they didn't fix this before mass-releasing the BBEs.  The hair is SO determined to stay like that, too.  If anyone has any theories why the hair does that, I'd love to hear them.

perhaps the rerooting needles were jabbed in at a strange angle, pushing them all upwards? : O

again I think it was a good concept but not applied very well. Some of them are really cute but it always seemed weird that there were no adult bbe's.
maybe the baby eyes should have been a bit smaller? BBE baby eyes do look like they are bugging out a bit and this is not the case with adult bbe sunlight so I think her eyes were the correct size. Maybe the sockets on the babies were created to be to big?

They aren't all like that but BBBE Ribbons sure is.  It could be fixed with heat I suspect but instead I harnessed it to make pigtails (twintails).  That's the power of the Mohawk! I guess.  Nice baby Gusty there.  I think orangepeachmango might be right, the angle of the rooting or could just be a crazy curl in the hair or something.

I don't agree that the sculpt is just to fit the eyes though, I think there is enough room inside the head to have set them in deeper, I think the face is just shaped that way to more easily meet the sockets which happen to be made with radial symmetry...they could have been asymmetrical like the adult prototype above but it would have required both design and production perfection between the mold and the socket shape and of course symmetrical is easier and would have fewer rejects etc.

It kinda makes sense to me to just have the babies, in regular dolls it's more often in the baby style and I always assumed it's for mommy/baby kinda play etc, and the BBE eyes are already kinda beady, if they were any smaller they'd be pinheads.  The sockets could easily have been made thinner and they could have used nonferrous weights too (avoiding the rust problem in their future, and all could have avoided the iron tail washers), but all these things would have required a lot more resources.

While we're at it they needed better lashes too.  Now where did I park that time machine...
