Even with a new species introduced we're still stuck with toys of the Mane 6... That is so annoying ugh..

I wish they had not done a Monster High and aquafied the mane 6. Aside from seeming like they got some inspiration from Scarrier Reef, it's just annoying that not even a different species release can avoid rereleases of the mane six.

I think the characters are probably based on the MLP movie- there are maybe a couple of new characters?

I'm not seeing "great scarrier reef" inspiration really-

I am talking about the idea of rereleasing the core characters in sea species format. Which Scarrier Reef did and which the MLP movie seems about to do. I wasn't talking about the plot - know nothing about that at all.

I don't think they got the inspiration from Great Scarrier Reef, "turning characters into mermaids" is kind of a generic trope.  Like I remember Barbie doing it mid-way through G3;  I was so frustrated because here BARBIE was producing 'sea ponies' (for Barbie to ride) and Hasbro wasn't, lol.  And Hasbro themselves did it with the Ponyville figures near the end of G3.5.

I don't like it either, the recycling of the mane six. But that's just Hasbro for you. It's like the G3 core seven.

Well one thing the movie is about is the Mane 6 turning into Sea Ponies so they are kinda needed since can you imagine if a kid wanted to re enact the movie and had to do it with the regular brushies? We are getting some new Sea Pony characters Princess Skystar and Queen Nuovo and all those little baby ones.

Then again I've never had any issues with rereleases since kids that are new to the show still will need the main characters. They just need to release some newbies too at the same time which thankfully Hasbro has been getting better about.

The bigger question obviously thus being why hasbro chose that theme at all.

Yeah but whenever new species were introduced/reintroduced in the older cartoons, we didn't have the established characters turning into them.

The baby ones are super cute, I really want to save up for them. They look about the size of my gen three mermaid ones, that I am still missing quite a few of them.

We also didn't have a main character in those cartoons so good at the Transfiguration school of magic that change from 1 type of object to another was considered possible common place even when creating or destroying life is concerned as far as the general audience for the show could tell rather than just a limited amount among the theorist community.

Looks like not ALL of the 6 get to be seaponies maybe....no Rainbow Dash, who I like only for her body...will we get one later, or is she stuck on land somewhere? hm.

Check out the wings on Fluttershy!  So nice.

LaW, those cookies and Cider, I mean *juice, must be putting some weight on you because you've become a Piggy Pony now!
