What are your thoughts on G4.5 ponies?
« on: March 26, 2017, 01:00:54 AM »
Those new molds of ponies that ushered us into the age of generation 4.5- what are you guys' thougts on them? I've watched a few comparison vids on YT, where people critisize how they look compared to the g4 molds, and I've also seen them invading local stores, and my thoughts are- they're nasty. The legs look like noodles, and there's too much space betwen them (back view is horifying), the heads are too bubbly and round, the muzzle shape scares me, the eyes are too big and "anime"-ish, and I've heard that the manes feel "greasy" compared to g4. They look like Hasbro tried to borrow the style of "Pokemon" Alola region anime for the g4.5 ponies, and it just resulted in a mess that I'm not throwing any money at (and if they release Sunset Shimmer, Vinyl Scratch,  Luna, or Star Dreams in that style,  then I'll be in BIG trouble).

What are your thoughts on this 4.5 gen? How long do you think these molds will be around?

i'm not a huge fan of these molds. when i first saw them, i thought they looked cute, but the more i see of them, the more appeal they lose for me. they're certainly not anything that i feel i need to go out and add to my collection, i'm just fine with my less cartoony-looking g4s. :P

Aww i think they're really cute! I like their silly little noddle legs they look like they jumped straight out of the cartoon to me! I agree the backs legs look kinda weird from the back though. And their hair is SO greasy, it makes it hard to style. But I'm happy to see more variety in poses, they have a lot of character! A few of the ponies (most notably Cadence) look really awkward, but Pinkie Pie really sold me, that pony has need a more energetic pose forever now!

I hated them at first, but they have grown on me, and I quite like them. Their manes vary in being greasy, but I would say they are about the same as late releases which decreased in quality as the line went along. I still struggle with the fatness of their heads, but they started doing that with newer releases in general. I don't necessary like the back either, but I never really have to look at that and don't display them that way.

I don't call them G4.5s.

The only one I really don't like is Cadence.  I do like most of the others.  They look dynamic and happy.

Not for me. The faces are too weird and I have those characters already.

I like how some of the poses are more dynamic, but the back legs seem to be oval shaped, and there's an obvious crease on them, which is weird. Granted, all I've seen is Lyra, but still. The mouth is also less obvious, which is kind of yeeg, but I can deal with that. I can still work with them, so thus far... Meh? I guess? I supposed overall indifference isn't a bad place to be for an opinion on their style.
My creativity keeps running into the wall of "it's already been done."  :argh:

So far the only one I really like is the standard Twilight single. The rest look off. I do think they will grow on me so I will probably pick some up eventually, but probably after the price goes down a bit.

They just don't do it for me - not a fan of their huge balloon heads or weird noodle legs. I dunno, I won't say "I'll never get one" cause you know, never say never and all that, but atm I don't see myself getting one.

Also the open-mouthed molds look so weird.. @_@;

Ive seen them in person I think they look very different from the original design. I would say I am on the fence about them.

Not a fan.  I don't like the shape of their heads, or their facial expressions.  I also hate the way the legs are thin at the top and thicker at the bottom, and the new poses don't do it for me.  I thought the older design was quite cute and pretty, so I'm not very happy at the redesign.

I like them, I was never a big fan of the static pose G4 brushables, the dynamic poses are really fun. At first I was iffy, but when I saw them in person I decided I quite like them. One thing that threw me at first was how wide apart their hind legs are, but overall the poses work.

I'm excited for the Fashion Styles to adopt the redesign, the ones shown off at the Toy Fair look cool.
