I actually like these much better except for RD's face looks funny to me. Not sure if I'll be collecting them though.

I am gonna pass, was never into these when they first came out, and certainly not now.  I don't hate them but neither do I find the appealing.

Still would it kill them to sell just the clothes in packs? Like they used to way back then with ponywear. I really would not want to buy an entire new doll just for new clothes.

Honestly? Their outfits are cute as heck. I'd totally wear Rainbow's.

I like these a lot better than the previous ones, tbh. Better articulation, varied facial expressions and no moulded plastic clothing? :lol:
Facially, they lack a distinctive 'look' but the increase in quality is enough to make me overlook it, plus there's always repainting.

I don't know about quality with these lol, and knowing Hasbro they will eventually do molded plastic clothing on these dolls.. If I recall the old ones didn't have molded plastic for a while..

Looking at them again, I still can't place what is truly off putting to me.. It's just something about the faces lol

The EqG dolls with the molded tops were the very first ones (and some budget ones but I hardly count those).

mmhm, I wouldn't get too excited about the current lack of plastic clothes. There's no saying they won't go back to them later, after all.

I really liked the other range of equestria girls dolls and, while the outfits are a lot better on these, their faces are horrible. Like they all look so bland. A pass from me.

It's a shame as when i saw the silhouette i was so excited hoping they were bringing back the large EqG dolls

Won't be getting any of these but I don't mind their more Disney-like appearance and I think Sunset Shimmer is the best looking one in the bunch.


Many thanks to SapphireRain for my sig image :art:

I would have liked Minis with real hair. They did it for the SSC Minis back when they owned the brand.

In person pics I found on Insta:

Those are my pics! :D Please follow my account if you like ponies ;D

I think they are still prototypes based on the way they looked in the cases.... so I have hope they might be making further adjustments.

...Is there a giant Rarity monster doll mannequin behind that in person image of Rarity, Foxtale? It looks like a giant white hand and a giant bracelet that resembles hers...

If so, do you have a photo of staypuft giant Rarity too? Just for kicks...

@Crystal Sushi, I have Sunset Shimmer, Fluttershy, Lemon Zest and Sunny Flare who all have better articulation than that in the photos, because they have articulation at elbow and at knee. The new dolls do not have better articulation, there are just dolls in the old line who have none and those that have lots (and stages inbetween, like Rainbow Rocks Pinkie Pie who has bendable knees but her arms don't bend because one of them is her trigger for making sounds.)

If you scroll through my pictures, the last one is zoomed out,  you see that the white hand is a real mannequin. For each doll they had a corresponding mannequin dressed up (which then young girls wore similar outfits fro the reveal). They were trying to push the fashion aspect because they contracted some famous LA fashion designer  to do their designs and idea boards for the designers at hasbro to work from... They are supposed to be more fashion forward? They most definitely are compared to the first release they all had basically the same skirt and chunky shoes.

I have more pictures if you are interested in the fashions :D

ya know I keep looking at these, and even though I don't like them, I think the target demographic might like them.  the faces are certainly friendly and kind looking.   the first gen of the dolls had a somewhat 'baby' face and these look older, actually closer to the 7 and 8 yos they're targeting.  they may do better this time around.
