(off-topic but Cswift, I love your sig! Pinkie Cooper :heart::heart:)

I prefer pink-haired ponies to be unfaded, but I do love that "in-between" colour they get sometimes.. not quite white yet but not pink either, just sort of both and neither at the same time, shimmery with pinker patches here and there.. so pretty. Too bad it doesn't really show up in photos though, haha.

I'm never too sure if I like the MGR ponies or not. I like the white one (forget her name), the colour + molded flowers remind me of some ornaments my nan had so she makes me smile, but the others.. I dunno, I go back and forth on my opinion of them a lot. Their colours are too garish for me, for the most part.. I guess I don't really dislike them, but I wouldn't want one either? If that makes sense.

Same here!

I'm actually surprised I didn't think to put this here before, but here's another one of mine; I never cared if any of the Concept Six turned out to be any of the Mane Six's mothers.

I often see people expressing disappointment when a Mane Six pony is shown, and it turns out not to be their Concept Six counterpart, and to be honest, I was always cool that it wasn't.  I love the Concept Six, and they were the first ponies I ever thought of crossing over into the G4 world (I'm not saying all of them will be the first), but I never viewed them as being the mothers nor cared if they were shown turned out to be in the show - Twilight Velvet resembling G1 Twilight was enough for me, and even then she's not an exact match, it was just a nice little reference to me, I never needed the Mane Six and Concept Six to be related.
I will confess to being a brony, but I assure you that the things you may not like about them do not apply to me, I mostly keep the fandom name due to nostaligia, but I do genuinely love MLP as a whole, not just FIM, and not just the popularity of FIM - I genuinely love the show (and all the others)

I think the Sunny Daze pose is much prettier then the Diva pose.

I don't like princess Celestia, but I downright hate Twilight.
Both figures and the show!

I think Nightglider and Mainsail are very similar, and I prefer Mainsail.

I don't get the love for Tex and Lightning.  I think All boy pony poses are boring.

The SHS have graceful, horselike poses, but barring a few here and there they are so generic and boring.

I don't like the shape on the wings of the toy flutters. They look fine in the show, but on the toy? No. I wish they had different shapes like the Wingers. Plus, too many flower themes. I like the second set better.

I don't like the colors on Patch's toy, even though I like it on the cartoon. Weird huh?  Perfect pose for her though.

I find BBE ponies more appealing than the regular babies, which I'm completely apathetic about.

Agree with this! It's quirky, and I absolutely loathe the Diva pose. I have never understood why people like it. When I went through my G3s to sell a lot of the Diva pose ones didn't stick around. The only one I remember keeping is Winter Snow and only because she is a European pony.

Re the concept 6/mane six mother/child idea - never even knew that was a thing.

I love the BBE babies. Moreso than the regular g1 babies.

I think super mint condition collections are boring. I prefer my ponies to be a little beat up, have some history and character!

That thick chunky coloured tinsel they used for the Butterfly Island g3s was really pretty.

I do like Mimic (green and parrots!!! my faves!!) but if anyone from that set deserves that amount of attention, it's Bright Eyes.

I prefer the g4.5 reboot ponies over the older g4s. By comparison, the older ones look droopy and dull and the reboot set look a little closer to what ponies should look like, imo.

I can't wait for g5 to pop up and flush out the last of the people latching onto the brony label and g4's popularity. I was still very much a child when the brony phenomenon started and was extremely hurt by feeling chased out of the community I grew up in because I was now seemingly in the minority and in the wrong for being a kid who liked kids toys. The last of my childhood was taken away from me for the comfort of adult men in a space that didn't belong to them and I can't wait for them to get a taste of their own medicine when g5 rolls around and children take up the majority of mlp fans again.

I don't like the diva pose either.  The Sunny Daze pose has so much personality and looks so happy.

OH GOD! No kidding! I remember when "brony" was starting to be a thing. My obscure hobby became mainstream!....but then it got cringey... Like, really really bad. I can't wait for the G5 for the same reasons, but I doubt it's going to come along soon :/

I prefer my pets to be like your ponies are. I love a dog with history. An old soul who has not necessarily had life be roses, but is his own "person" because of it. Character, quirks and all!

You hit the nail on the head regarding what bothers me about the brony community. I understand that there are positive things about it -- I think men can and should be encouraged to like what they like without shame or embarrassment, even if those things are "girly," because there's nothing inherently shameful about girls! But I've seen too often that the men (and, granted, some of the women) involved aren't willing to extend the same courtesy to others that they demand for themselves, and instead swagger about acting like they own MLP and anyone who doesn't fit into their mold is stupid and wrong.

Another unpopular opinion of mine, since I don't want to just rant -- Nirvanas usually look bad, in my opinion. I could be biased, but the alternate color schemes never seem to quite "fit" -- like it's obvious the characters weren't originally designed in those colors.

On the Nirvana subject - bearing in mind I'm expecting to be pelted with rotten fruit for saying this - I don't understand why people spend a fortune on a bad condition Nirvana with no hair/ratty hair cut and marks all over the body. A beat up pony is a beat up pony, and should command a beat up pony price.

I'm not talking about ones with minor flaws, fading, etc, but the ones that show up chewed, bald, tailless and/or drawn all over. I really don't understand why people will pay top dollar for something that is essentially wrecked.
Even if it were a OOAK pony, I wouldn't do it. I love battered ponies, but I don't love collector exploitation by sellers.

Another unpopular opinion of mine...I don't believe in the "an owner can do what they like to their pony, it's their pony' mantra. So many people sell collections on these days due to circumstances they don't forsee that I think it matters what you do to a pony in terms of making permanent changes. I think that the community matters more than the individual in such things.
