so bumping does anyone know if the magenta stripe was the more common?  Was the neon the oddball?  I was trying to find MOC pics so wiki has the magenta

and our gallery has what looks to me like the neon... so are both just out there and considered just version 1 and 2?


I like how the neon matches the G1 cartoon :-)

appreciate any insight as it is so hard to "value" nirvana and spain is like $40 to who knows for the TEs - centelleos

thanks!

You do see less of the neon pink stripe version :)

I need to update the description in the gallery!

thanks much :-)

Hey did we already have a history of the TE variants BTW?  Like it was just a second run release or a MO or (probably not for G1 like was with G4 when you get "store exclusives") other promotional ?  I really do love nirvana in trying to also learn the manufacturing (like italy hand stamping) / marketing stories

Congratulations on your new addition ^.^ I'd love to see a family photo if you get time :heart:

I must say collecting in this way allows you to compare ponies :) I know you've found a few variants we didn't know about such as the hair colour variant Brazil Twist.

so what I can say is the pink "crazy" eyes seem a different run - they are a darker green and hoof stamp is in a different place (see above)

That's a great picture thanks for sharing :)

I do recall their being two different placements for Twinkle Eyes hoof stamps. I can't remember if any conclusion was drawn as it was discussed a long time ago, but I do think two runs is likely given how much variation there is. It's not just hair colour, it's eye style and colour as well as hoof stamps that are different.

It might be worth discussing Spain twinkle eye hoof stamps again!

yes - so it looks almost as if there was maybe a second mold used and so that explains the different stamp placement?  The circle on the bottom seems very different ... I'll need to go pull more spain marked ponies as I am not sure if that is a common difference for the second run of these guys
