All of 'em! I was G4 exclusive for a year or two, but now I really love G1 and they get priority right now. I really like the new poses that G4 has, and the weird heads and legs don't bother me!  :silly: It's okay that they aren't popular, more clearance ponies for me!
I also don't mind G3.5 that much, I'd actually prefer to have more than I do now. They don't pop up in thrift stores as often, though.

I collect a little of almost everything. I started with G1 and I love them best of all. The toys and the toons are varied, beautiful, adventurous  and whimsical.

I  fell in love with G3s because they reminded me of G1s. They're just as beautiful and varied, though the cartoon is, impo rather dull and saccharine. Got some nice songs and lovely looking animation.

 G4 eventually pulled me in kicking and screaming. I'm not crazy about them, because their deliberate deformity irritates me as a model horse collector. Its bad quality, and Hasbro's sudden love of repetitious characters annoys me. Plus much of its peripheral fandom leaves a sour taste in my mouth for their behavior.  But some of the toys have pretty colors, so I've got a growing handful. The show is too cookie-cutter for me to be seriously interested in it.

I don't like 3.5 at all.

 I don't have any G2s yet, as it took me a while to get used to its style. It's not the thinness that bothered me, but the awkward proportions. Small, moosey muzzles, strangely angled legs and horrible joints in the articulated ones.  But I intend to have a few. I like the royal couples, the unicorns and a few of the non- jointed ponies for their daring colors and unusual symbols. Soon. I'd like to try and get one next year.

I'm a G3 girl. I dug out my collection today because I want to get back into the pony life!

I only collect G1. Always have.

I have a lot of g3's but never collected them and all loose G2 and G3 that can be found around here are just saved from flea markets or gifts.

G1 with some G3's, a few of the G4 unicorns because I love unicorns of any generation. But the first two are where my heart and collection is. Honestly with G1 and G3 it's a case of what I can afford and right now that's G3.

I am a G1 all the way, but I do have some G3 ponies loose and NIB. And 6 G4 ponies.  I have never been a G2 or G3.5 collector at all.

I wish I could be a G1 only collector. I have been very torn because I just like all gens. :/ So I got into just G1s at first then I saw G3s. I liked them as well and so on. Now I have a huge collection. So im a forced multi generational collector.

Hmm, technically I collect all gens except G3.5 (just can't get into them) but I mostly focus on G1 and G4 - G1 is my favourite, and G4 because they're available in shops and thus are easier/cheaper/etc to buy, so I tend to get them when they come out.

I focus on G1.  The G1 show is what I grew up with, so it has a place in my childhood.  I also like the design of the toys themselves.

I try to collect only G1, though one G2 I found at a thrift store and a couple of G4's from Target and Goodwill. I also have a lot of Equestria Girls. I have one G3 (Starsong) because I don't like G3. I love Starsong though, lol :)

Wow! Thanks for the replies everyone! I dont know if I can reply individually! It seems like a lot of people are in the same boat as me. G1 is favourite or priority, with G3-4 being secondary. I love to see what everyone collected though! Did your gen collection start from a specific pony you just clicked with?

I can answer that one. It was Medley. The rest is pony history.

In terms of collecting it is G3 for me. The only other generation that I have any actual brushables from is G1, and that's only two.

The very first pony I saw I had to have was Candy Cane, then Jazz Matazz, and then... The list kept on growing. There are still so many I wasn't able to get, but that's fine. College is much more important.
