I'm not much of a fan of pearly ponies; they give me a bit of a Silent Hill vibe, like how everyone always seems to have really gross, clammy skin. :|

THIS. What really bugs me is when the eyes are pearly too. It makes it hard to see their eyes and it doesn't make sense for the eyes to be pearly in the first place.

I completely agree with you on that. what in the world compelled them to pearlize the eyes?

Yeah. I don't care for the eyes of the pearlized baby pony set. They look weird.

I have to admit, I'm fully aware the G3 movies were bad but god do I love them.
Thistle Whistle's speech impediment was so endearing, too! Speaking of Razaroo. Her whistle-lisp made me want her pony sooo badly as a kid because I found it adorable. Never got her, but when I got Wind Whistler as a kid that's how I made her talk, too.

G3 ponies had a surprising amount of depth to their personality, when they weren't backgrounders. Kimono and Minty for example?

I adore Thistle and Razz.

I actually really like the animation in some of the g3 movies, like Princess Promenade. And I agree that some g3s had interesting personalities. I always loved Sunny Daze in the cartoons.

I like the second set of Princess Ponies. Particularly Pristina, Misty, Taffeta and Moondust. Granted, I wish the tinsel was done better, but they're still a very pretty set.

I like them too :D I wish they had been sold here in the UK :(
Though Pearl will always be my darling in the princess stakes.

I didn't know that? Stingy Hasbro.

Tiffany/Pearl is one I'm biased towards, as she was a childhood pony. I also love Starburst/Amber and Primrose/Ruby.

I wonder what the second set of princesses would've been named if they'd been sold there? Although I like their names just fine and think they suit them well.

I like them too. I would have kept the names the same over here, if it had been up to me, as well. We didn't have any pony called Sunbeam in the UK. We did have 'Princess Moondust' (the orange petite with the castle was called that here) but we certainly didn't have a Dawn, Pristina or Taffeta either. And actually, we didn't have a Misty, because we only had four of the six Watercolor babies, and that wasn't one. Oh, wait. We had the petite Misty, but Petites somehow don't count the same?

So the names would've been new and different :)

Hasbro are stingy. We had the first set in both 1987 and 1988. Leading to confusion about accessories forevermore after that...seems they weren't consistent between years.

Yay a fellow Tiffany fan. I wanted her since I was a kid and finally got her over a year ago. White hair, white body, she was the perfect dream pony for me. The name Tiffany was weird for a pony but it fit the theme of spoiled ponies because Tiffany is an expensive brand, I think. "Her mind is Tiffany twisted, she's got a Mercedes-Benz."

I think if the animated characterisation of the princesses had been the main thing here I wouldn't have wanted any of them. It still breaks my heart to think of spoiled Princess Tiffany behaving like a brat. Pearl was such a beautiful, sensitive and artistic soul in the UK comics. All the princesses had great characters, but Pearl was special <3.

All six of them were behaving like spoiled brats. :rolleyes:

 I guess there's nothing like a lava demon attack to mature people in a hurry. XD

I hope to read the UK comics eventually. I wasn't crazy able the spoiled princesses in the cartoon but Tiffany was gorgeous to me regardless.

Oh gosh yes, I love the second set of princess ponies! I was lucky enough to find Misty with all her accessories at an estate sale, i mean, even her ribbon and crown clip! It was amazing!

I hope I have similar luck finding the others, they can be a downright headache to find with any of their stuff :C

I have the accessories for Tiffany who was a childhood pony and Serena but I haven't found them when I was in the market to buy, and of course I love unfaded pink hair so I have to shell out more for that. I really want to get Tiff again. I traded her to another girl when I was young and stupid and the next time I saw her she'd cut all her hair off...

I love Tiffany/Pearl :) I love was lucky enough to find her on Ebay with all of her accessories and Bushwoolies



I also don’t like their personalities in the cartoon, they’re too vain and selfish. I would have loved to read the comic stores about them. :) I guess Primrose/Ruby is my least favorite of the 1st set but that might change when I see one in person.

I love faded pink hair on most ponies. It just isn't worth the extra money for me to buy a pony with that pink hair if I can't display it. I'd rather not buy a pony with unfaded hair than buy it and not be able to display it.

Their personalities were indeed terrible int he show. They at least learned and grew, but I would have liked to see them again afterwards to see their true personalities without all the spoiled bratty sass. Their toys were amazing though <3 Just wish we'd had their sweet little dragons in the US as well but it was nice to get bushwoolies from the show with crowns that corresponded to the show, that was a neat detail!

See, that pink hair is an appealing color to me. I love it when I can find one who's had their face completely white because sometimes it makes for an interesting alternate.

I may buckle down and just repink just to save money.

Unpopular pony opinion? I think some peoples rehairs of ponies look a million times better than official release.

I love the pink hair too. And I admit, I will go the extra mile to get a pink haired one if I have the opportunity. I kept my Trucker because his streak was pink (he was originally in a lot of trade ponies). I think my Posey came about likewise. I just kept another Kiss Curl because of her pink hair...and I wasn't going to get Tornado until I found a pink haired one, which changed my mind. Yeah, they have to live in the cupboard but *shrug* to me it's worth it because they look so nice :D

Re the UK comics - I believe LM is working on that ;) then everyone will be able to read them :D
