PKW is as ever a treasure to the community with the things she can produce.

I remember a plush Pinkie Pie selling to someone at ponycon a couple of years ago for around the £500 mark. I don't even understand how.

I have some small plushes of characters from an anime and they cost me around $45 each to have made although they are beautifully done. (Back in the days when the exchange rate wasn't hostile). I can understand £120ish for something as elaborate as that Starcatcher but £500 for a Pinkie Pie...? Yeah, it was a large Pinkie Pie but still...?
Exactly this. If Customisers like PKW can price fairly, why are other fan-made Customs going for prices like THAT??? Mind boggles...

On another unpopular note - people wax lyrical about the US packaging, but I think the UK packaging for 1986 and 1987 is the prettiest pony package art ever done. Not just because of the ponies but the whole concept.

YES, the early UK art is much prettier. More colourfull!  Then again, I like the later US art better (when Europe got the cards with borders..)
Wanted: MOC Geman baby Lemon Drop, MIB baby Lemon Drop with purple stroller, MOC Rainbow Confetti, MOC Euro(NSS) Buttons, ,  and UK carded rainbow ponies.

I like the art on the border cards but it only focuses in on the one pony in the set, rather than all of them, which is a bit sad.

Tell me about it!!! The only way to get art of the others is off the sides of boxes. If a certain set was sold on cards, you got a drawing of ONE & that was it!!! :sad: :sad: :sad:

Yes. BUT those with boxes rather than cards (like the Glittering SHS Ponies) have very pretty art.

Agreed!!! Can't get enough of side-cards for the later Ponies!!!

From what I’ve heard why the g2 ponies didn’t sell well it’s because of their body type, they didn’t like the long tall poses, but for me I really like it because I like tall elegant poses.
G2 is one of my favorite body types and g4 with the taller ponies

Despite being more Mane Suxx, I really like the Retro M6 Pack. The hair is leagues better.

I sometimes think the older fandom complains too much. Yes I include myself.

PKW is as ever a treasure to the community with the things she can produce.

It depends on how much work is done and the quality of the customizers work and what they think is fair to charge.

I noticed some people don't like the Dolly Mix Ponies. I love them & think they're lovely for their size, which, note, is pretty small (I think only World's Smallest & maybe G1 Petites are smaller). I wish they'd made more than just the 20 G1s & the Core 7 G3s.

I don't have any of them, but they sure do look cute.

Don’t like the Mimic Pose or Powder Pose, got a Princess Sparkle I’m trying to get rid off seeing as I’m making a custom of her.

A mother pony can be protective of her young just like dogs.

Who wants to changed this sig into ponies?

I LOVE the Dollymixes!!! Cutest things ever, I so wish they'd made more. Can you imagine how adorable a G4 set would be?!

Also they really are fantastic quality for their size. I've seen bigger toys than that that have multitudes of flaws; Dollymixes are pretty perfect, apart from the odd factory error here and there (yellowtail Minty, earth pony Glory).

I would love to get Medley, Gusty and Mainsail.
