This'll be a weird brag but I have to do it. My LONGEST running collection of something is finally complete. Of course, I aim to complete G1s some day, but that will be a while. In the meantime is the story of Star Prancers Horses.

When Fashion Star Fillies came out in the 1980s or so, a knockoff line appeared too.
These were the Star Prancers horses, trying to cut in on filly fame. However, they didn't make it because they couldn't hold a candle much to FSF quality. They're all in the same pose, and relied on gobs of accessories and very fancy hair updos to be 'different' and try to compete. However, sadly, the hair is pretty much rubbish quality and if it gets played with at all it's a frizz nightmare. The accessories were also pretty easy to lose being tiny beads on strings, sprays of threads and a barrette or back-cover cloth. They also had little chrome stickers to decorate them.

However, they did some unique stuff like having mixed color hair (the silver one), an actual all-silver fantasy horse (I don't think its been done since) and their very thick necks/sort of robust look with a strange human-ish-ancient Egypt painting type eye. (I kind of like strange toys)

I started with the pink & silver as childhoods, when they were first out.
Then, slowly I would find one or another here and there. Now, thanks to the Arena, I got the last one!

The issue with these isn't that they're costly, it's that they didn't sell too well (being a fakie line) and also nobody knows what they are.
This has what I believe are the original hair styles for each, but they're still missing accessories here and there. However, I only know 1 other collector who got all of them, so it is likely a rare-er sight of the internet to view. The pictures are big if you click them I think to see the details.
Thank you for listening to the brag of so many years!

I remember these horses! And I had one as a kid - loved her. Long gone now of course. But congratulations on your collection!

Ooh hey, those are really cool! Congrats on finishing your collection :D
I really like the pearly body colours- you're right that the silver is very unusual and neat!
They look like they would have been a tonne of fun to play with, with all those hair accessories, haha

They're so beautiful! I've never seen these  before. I especially like the blue and green one and the yellow and white one.
