Flaws you can't stand
« on: April 28, 2017, 10:37:06 PM »
I'm hoping there isn't a topic like this already going somewhere... and I guess this is mainly for G1 collectors.

I'm curious what flaws you can't stand to have in your collection or if you only collect mint ponies.

For me I can't stand two different shades for the head and body and missing tails/hair cuts. They're a complete deal breaker for me.

Pvc breakdown because there's nothing I can do about it.

major mane cuts because I hafta spend money getting them rehaired.

Mold, because I'm a major league priss and would spend more time praying to the Porcelain God then I would cleaning the pony out.

Missing body parts. I won't even bother if they have chunks taken out.

Missing symbols/big eye rubs,because I can't draw worth a poo.

I don't do the whole mint thing, but I don't want serious flaws that are beyond my ability to fix.

I'm okay with minor flaws, small rubs, missing tails, slight yellowing and regrind.

Missing a head!  :-p

But I'm open to falling in love with any other pony that has flaws!

I don't care for head body mismatch in G1s.  I don't care for haircuts, marker, mold and symbol rubs.  The worst for me though  is cat pee.  When a pony arrives covered in cat pee nothing helps it.  Argh

Can't say that I've ever come across a cat pee pony and I definitely don't want to. I can imagine how hard it would be to get the stench off :/

i don't mess with rubbed symbols. if its a pony i really want ill get it, but i really cant stand when symbols are half gone or missing. its what makes them unique!

pretty much all other flaws are amicable.

irreversible damage to the plastic caused by age or mold or whatever. I am not going to keep those ponies.

As long as the price is right, there are no flaws i will reject.

Missing head? Make a centaur.

Cancer? Boil or just keep as is, cleaning m drying thoroughly of course.

Frizz? Cant stand it. My new better quality curling iron is kicking butt so far.

Rat chewed off face? I resculpted with razor blade and wet sandpaper, she turned out so cute i gavr her diamond earrings.

I was sure i'd hate head/body mismatch but finally got Bluebelle for $1, looked awful in the pics but in person, i don't care i love her

Rubbed symbols are kinda bad though. Someday when i figure out paints i'll customize or restore, until them such ponies are doomed to stay in my growing # of boxes.

Weird cats with beards? Who came up with that? Eeeeeeew get them away from me.

Frizzy hair because it's hard for me to tame even with straight ironing. Cut mane or tail.

Oh yeah that too! DD's Chief came to us REEKING of cigarette smoke and he has a big, brown patch on his otherwise minty white body.

i'm okay with most flaws, but i cannot deal with stinky or moldy ponies! frizz, haircuts, rubbed symbols, beauty marks are all fine; mold just gives me the heebie jeebies  :cry:

What I really can't stand is age spots, missing parts, big hair cuts, and tons of ink or marker.  Mismatching heads, Chew marks are pretty annoying too.

Small rubs, hair trims, small spots of ink or such, frizzy hair, unstable standing, rust are all ok to me. I haven't seen a pony with terrible mold yet, but as long as the mold didn't touch my hands as I was cleaning it I'd be fine haha
