It drives me crazy how the FIM cartoon ponies have like hair styles instead of regular manes, but then the toys mostly just have regular manes making them look even less like the characters!!!

Nothing stopping you from styling them yourself.  ^.^ Some people do. That's part of the whole play experience. That's what brushable horses and dolls are for.
I have actually rehaired/added hair and cut/styled it on a few of them!

On the complete opposite position from this, actually. As a G1 person from a world where the toys dictate all, it annoys me that the show ponies have silly hairstyles that aren't reflecting their toyselves accurately. Although I don't watch the regular cartoon, I did notice in one of the EQG episodes that Sunset Shimmer when she turned back pony had really ugly hair...
Actually I'm with you lol I wish the FIM cartoon ponies had more regular manes that matched the current toys and all the other generations' toons and toys!

As a kid, I felt disappointed after watching the MLP cartoons, I really wanted to enjoy them, but I hated the squeaky voices.

Contrast that to the wonderful She-Ra, Jem etc.

Just my opinion!  :bolt:

I actually think SheRa is more annoying in the voice department. 99% of which is just Catra. Meowww....

Jem has a stellar cast though you do realise that a lot of the people on Jem were also on MLP?


Yes, me too ! I looooove She-ra toys and the look but the voices in them cartoons, oh boy..that's just annoyingly bad. Still watch them though and as a kid it didn't bother me at all.

Maan only like 5 pages in, and I'm definitely gonna be rehashing a lot of other peoples stuff haha.

I love the eyelash ponies, they are just so cute. Even though when they are unruley they look like they have giant caterpillar eyebrows, I adore them. I only have one, but I will get more eventually.

G2's are probably my fave gen. I have specific ponies I love from g3 and g1, but I just love the goofy goofy g2's.

I like tinsel, so long as it's not too unruley. It can be tamed usually.

I really like bbe ponies. I saw a tutorial for modding them into normal babies and I felt like crying a lil tbh. Like you can de-rust them, and sell them off.

Probably not that unpopular, but I am so bummed that we don't have the anniversary ponies here. :( How cool would it be to buy a pony from a toy store again?

Along the same line, sort of: I really wish I liked the HQG1 ponies, because it's so exciting to see new G1 designs! But in reality I only like three or four of them, the others just don't give me that pony feeling, mostly because of the colour schemes I guess. I have a lot of respect for all the work people are doing with these, and it's a fantastic project, but unfortunately it's not for me. :(

No axe here, I'm just glad to hear someone else saying it for once. :P Other generations aren't even ponies to me, I'm really sorry. :lookround:

I personally don't hate any generation but I also don't care if other people do. I'm a G1 person but I have some of each. I like that there are enough ponies to go around for everyone's taste. :)

I still don't like FIM though. While I think most of it is benign and largely superficial, there are a few disturbing things which seem to promote colonial attitudes and cruelty to animals. And even EQG, which I do like, does at one point try and make out like a popularity contest is a good thing and choosing people for their skills is a bad thing...

Anyways.

My unpopular opinion. I don't want there to be a G5.

At least, if there is one,  I don't want it to be for a good long time into the future. Maybe 5 years from now. When there's been a chance for a complete start over, and not just more remaking of the remake. I think G5 right now with the mane 6 template is the death of MLP.

It may well be.

Unpopular Opinion: I am a G1 collector who LOVES FIM, the show, the movie, the toyline, I love it all! I actually just finished the newest season on Netflix like 20 mins ago  :blush: Let me be clear though, I LOVE G4 molds but I'm not a fan of G4.5 (Except I hate G4 wings and love how they're being molded in 4.5)

I'm not a big fan of the So Softs, not because of the texture, but because of how horribly they aged.

I also never really liked the Twinkle Eye ponies because they lacked life somehow, and I also never got to watch much of the show, so I didn't understand them well.

I always played with Gingerbread Pose ponies as if they were males.

I am not a big fan of the newborn pose, I prefer the teeny tiny pose.

I love the moving, rolling necked babies.

I think the diaper ponies are adorable!

Give me all the bushwoolies!!!

Are they going with a soft reboot and keeping it in a similar style to not get the fandom mad?

Like was that the reasoning they gave?

Because I bloody well hope not.

Let it finish. Let it die, give it a good ending, then give it a few years wait and really change the style as you always do :/

I do love the g4 art style in the animation esp (really not a fan of the g4.5 molds, the open unpainted mouths are so creepy, if they had paint maybe they'd be better? but even then they are still *shudder*)

I also want G5 to be a separate thing from G4. I enjoy G4, although G1 will always be my first pony love but to me if they are going with the same characters that's not a true reboot because we'll still have the same basic characters just with some of types of ponies switched. I don't want to see the adventures of Fluttershy the unicorn and Twilight Sparkle the Earth pony.

Well, on the bright side, if G5 is just G4 rebooted then at least I can focus on finishing my other gens.

I'm not sure that's been said at all, because I think nothing official has been said anyway, just leaks and stuff. But they didn't care about making the previous three generations of fans mad. Honestly, I think it's just trying to piggyback on something that was accidentally really successful. Trying to follow that with something equally successful that can maintain all the lucrative franchise contracts as well as capture an enduring toy section of the market is going to be hard. I think they might be playing it safe. But for me if the mane 6 are in it, it's still G4.  Just like SHS are still G1, and 7 characters/tales stuff is still G1. It has to be a new core cast with a significant amount of change in setting, characters, toys etc to be a whole new generation, rather than a subset. Otherwise we're saying that Equestria Girls, which changes the SPECIES of the main characters is G4 but another equine iteration of the mane 6 is somehow G5? And that doesn't make any sense...

So yeah, to go back on topic, unpopular opinion remains keeping alive characters that are beyond dead on the store shelves where I live at least...in the hope of piggybacking some of that lost momentum and glory of a few years back...is not what MLP means to me. And that is entirely without undermining the validity of G4, its fandom, or its existence. I just want something new. And I think, judging from how NOTHING mane 6 is selling here at all...so do the kids.
