See this is what I love/hate about collecting - variants of variants

so fizzy has two apparently and I thought I got the neon pink stripe but no, it's an error with pink tail and purple mane so

I was planning to sell my haircut /purple stripe but wanted to double check on is one or the other more common?  I would also be interested in buying a neon pink spain fizzy if anyone has one up for sale/trade as then I would have a three-set (ya, know  ;) for my kids)

anywhooo - here's pics and thanks in advance for shedding light on how common or rare these spain fizzy variations are :-)

oh and not sure if eye variation is a factor with this pair ... pink has pink eyes, and purple has pale (maybe just faded ?)

I think her eyes are pale pink :) You have a OOAK there too!

I've looked in the gallery and there are three versions :)

Pale pink eyes and purple stripe (like your girl on the right)
Bright pink eyes and bright pink stripe
Bright pink eyes and purple stripe (like your girl on the left, but with the "correct" tail)

I love your OOAK girl with the  mismatched tail! :heart:

Love pkw xxx

yeah that was a  lucky ebay snag = I thought she was all neon pink and that was the variation instead of purple stripe.

Between the hand stamping of italy and the gem eye variations of spain those two countries give one plenty of excuses for a small army of variations

any idea if they are just different production runs?  Actually - turned 'em over and the stamps are different.  Did Spain have more than one manufacturer?

I'd forgotten about the different hoof stamps!!

There do seem to be at least two runs of the TE ponies, but I don't think we've ever got to the bottom of it as they were all made by the same company.

yeah... this is the "problem" I have with downsizing just when I think I'm ok to part with one...  then = oh dang, a variant

so I would be interested in anyone selling their  pink eye all pink stripe (mane and tail) spain fizzy if by some miracle ya don't like green ponies anymore ;-)

You see the two hoof stamp thing on some other ponies as well, typically those with Spain and NC variants. As far as I know they didn't have more than one manufacturer, but evidently they had at least two runs of quite a few ponies! :)

yeah I knew it was a milton bradley company did the piggy pose ponies for spain - with brekkar or some such I think ?  So I wasn't sure if they did regular run Spain MLP as well and that's the basis for the variation, or if they only did piggy and I have no clue for the regular spanish manufacture-name

good reminder that some spain aren't stamped... I think all the TE's are though (runs off to check)

I think with the stamp difference, Id keep her (but Id keep any Fizzy lol)

For the topic-name question : I own purple-striped with light pink eyes, Spain stamp on her left hind leg!

oh thanks for the stamp update Einhorn (unicorn? I like that :-)!) ... ok, so I wonder if then the head is incorrect having the purple stripe since the spain stamp is on that one's right hoof

Anyone else own spanish fizzy out there?  What are your MLP combos and relationship of hair color to hoof stamp?

Angel ponies also had a fizzy with the neon stripe tail and purple in mane so I believe there are at least two of that one....

As far as I'm aware MB made all the TE ponies (and all the other regular ponies too) we have plenty of MOC evidence. I too remember wondering if two manufacturers were responsible for all the variants as with the piggies, but nope :P

You are right that piggies were made by MB and Brekar :)
