If we aren't calling them G4.5 (which is fine by me), then what are we calling them?  G4 Reboot?



Some people are calling them that.  I'm ok with either term.  I suspect that discussion on that will go back and forth for some time to come.

The real question is going to be what happens if Hasbro decides to redesign them again and FiM is still going.  Would it be called G4.75?  Reboot 2.0?

Some people do seem weirdly sensitive to calling them G4.5s or G5s or even reboots (although that seems to be the most popular). Honestly I have no idea why.  Maybe it has something to do with not wanting them to be like G 3.5? Or maybe something to do with bronies?  I'm not sure ...

I don't call them G4.5s because I honestly don't think they look very different from previous G4s.  I think people perceive them as being radically different because we've had 6 years of the same two molds, lol.

Well that is a good point.

Yeah and G1 had several mold shifts throughout the years too.

I found this funny review on youtube of someone reviewing G4.5 and she does compare it to regular G4's so you can see the difference.

Here is the video:

Now that I saw comparisons I can say I loathe G4.5.  It's like Hasbro gave up trying and thought people wouldn't notice.  :pout:

I don't really like them. I bought Cadance and Shining Armor from a chinese seller on ebay. I don't think I'll buy any of them in the store though. Maybe if they come out with some nice OC's or something.

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 wonder if they're head heavy and will fall on their faces?

That's exactly how I feel. It bothers me more than it should that people call them 4.5. I mean, to each their own... I just don't view this as G4.5, personally.

I might be warming up to that Celestia and Shining Armor  sets :)
but not yet convinced
the mane 6 with closed mouths also are not looking as bad as the ones with open mouths or crazy poses.
we'll see, maybe when they are 50 % off  :)

also wondering about the FS ponies, how are they going to come out at the end, I will have to bite the bullet for new Characters like Bird Song (Sia pony )  and maybe some Mermaid ponies, but they are not convincing me either , the ones I have seen look like the inserted a bird in their rear   :shocked: :shocked: :shocked:  and then their facial expressions are not helping much LOL sorry  :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

I'm not a fan of the opened mouths or strange poses, however I LOVE the few that aren't in a pose and have closed mouths more than the regular G4s. I feel like they look more like the show.

They're cute, but I don't think I'd buy any of them unless they came out with remakes of some of my previous gen favorites. I don't know what it is, but they look less like "My Little Ponies" and more just like Generic Viynl Toys. Which is weird, cause one of my peeves about G4 ponies was the lack of varying poses.

I really don't like them. I'm not a fan of the rubber hose bend of the limbs. It's unnatural and looking at it makes me weirdly uncomfortable. I also really don't like the faces. Just m feelings on it though <3 Glad there are others who are fans
