He is a childhood pony for me. One of the only MO ponies in the UK that wasn't sold in stores as well. I had to beg and beg to get him, because he was out around the time my Dad had just lost his job in the middle of the recession, but in the end I did get him. I think family helped out. I remember he had a white moon comb and came in a white box. Mine still has his bowtie, but it's long since lost its elastic-ness.

He was in the comics a lot and was always getting up to mischief, like finding the Mountain Boys and accidentally bringing drawings of newborn twin ponies to life.

I didn't have Baby Lucky as a kid, but I did have the pamphlet advertising him.  When I started collecting years later, I found blue baby Ember and thought it was Lucky with his symbol scraped off, lol.

I still think he'd look better in Ember's pose, to be honest.  That particular boy pose looks kind of weird IMO.   But he's still cute.

Also!  The pamphlet he was advertised in made a big deal about him being "the very first BOY pony!".  But, the pamphlet was also advertising Satin 'n Lace and her wedding!  (Tux 'n Tails / Coat 'n Tails had not been invented yet.)  Being raised in a heteronormative environment, it didn't occur to me that she might be marrying another girl, so it just seemed odd.

Also, Baby Lucky was described as Satin 'n Lace's cousin.  If he's the very first boy pony, how . . . how did that happen?

Follow-up:  If Majesty magically created Baby Lucky, and Satin 'n Lace is Baby Lucky's cousin, does that mean Majesty also magically created Satin 'n Lace?

Hasbro did the same with Confetti here though the comics explained the wedding outfit away as a gift from fairies she got from a party...her box suggests she;s getting married, though to whom, nobody knows o.O. No boy ponies in 86, except Lucky, who had no connection to weddings here.

I still have this somehow from my childhood where so many other things got lost, which may be explained by the fact he was super special to me as a mail order pony. This is the letter that came with him - which weirdly is from the mostly peripheral Megan rather than Majesty.

I traded off my spare to someone not on the boards however, I am glad he got a good home. I love my newer one better. I think he is a cute one. I dont understand him being a relative of satin in lace. I guess it doesnt make very much sense. Though I think it really is a far fetched story. This sounds like its like one of those random unfinished stories.

It's so cool that you still have that piece of your childhood!  I still have my Satin 'n Lace pamphlet, although this scan is from Ponyland Press:

The text is kind of small.  It says, "It's almost time for the wedding. And look who's here!  It's Lucky, the very first boy Pony! He's Satin 'n Lace's little stallion cousin and he's going to be the ring bearer.  Won't he look adorable in the bridal procession? Because Lucky is such a special pony, you can't buy him at any store.  He's only available to Pony friends through this exclusive offer."

Also some text about Satin 'n Lace inviting the Collector ponies to the wedding.  Those who bought the Collector pony retro sets from 2007 may recognize the art of them . . . Hasbro used it for the back of the retro set. :)

Finally, one I actually have! Lucky was one of my childhood favorites, and one of only two ponies that survived my childhood herd. I remember ordering him from one of the brochures and it seemed like aaaaages I had to wait for him to finally arrive... I'd ask my mom every few days when he was going to get here. LOL.

Well he is old enough to get a tattoo.

Though I know he is called an stallion I always thought of him as a colt.

As far as I'm concerned, he is a colt. But you know, this is Hasbro land where baby ponies wear diapers and show off their one toof.

I agree with that anything goes in the land of Hasbro. They gave the pony friends hair.

In a world where baby ponies can be born via a magic mirror or brought to life from paper when Baby Lucky accidentally uses his magic (UK comic) and where Megan is older than ponies that have baby ponies (US Picnic at PE tape), anything goes. Seriously.

Baby Lucky I remember now had magic words. I think he had to do a dorothy-esque click of his hooves and say Happy go lucky or something for weird stuff to happen, and somehow he managed to do that accidentally from time to time.

I think I have that wedding brochure somewhere in my folder of inserts. I also have a copy of the mail in thingy for the UK for lucky, which is just a white paper document with blue (?) text. Nothing as glossy or fancy xD. I don't have that scanned, though. Or if I do I can't find the scan currently.
