Does anyone have just one gen that they stick to?
« on: November 15, 2017, 06:43:44 AM »
I'm a returning G1 collector and as a result I mostly resonate with those ponies especially when collecting. But since returning I've found the fim world and characters are actually really sweet! I have started to watch the show recently and I'm not mad about it!  :silly: Its weird for me because I really like G1 and the fim storylines, but I actually cant stand the new G4 pony figurines. I much prefer G1 and after that I like the G3s as well. BUT I didnt really ever get into the G3 stories. So if only there was a pony line and storyline that I loved at the same time thatd make things a whole lot easier.

I'm curious what generation you stick to, if you stick to any at all. Do you have your gen or do you branch out and enjoy all of them? Are there any gens you just cant stand?  :what:

I'm a G1 only gal :)  I have made the odd exception with a couple of G3's (but I have less than five, and mostly they are minty versions of my two little daughters' favourites that I cherish purely for sentimentality. And a couple of others whose colours just caught my eye).

I don't dislike G2's and G3's - just not interested in collecting. And at the risk of having fakies thrown my way, I just can't do G4. The fandom, the aesthetics... Personally it/they just do nothing for me  :huh:

I am a G1-2-3 collector. I can't stick to only one gen, I find the others really cute. Well, those three. I really don't like G3.5 and I'm not really sure about G4. It depends but I don't want to buy them, I don't get the same feeling owning G4's than my other gens. ^^

G1 only for me!

Only exception is when I see other gens "in the wild" for a bargain price for possible future trades or for my kid to play with, or my kid wants one of the current g4s - but those are for her  :lol:

I really enjoy all of the gens honestly!
I have more G3 than any other gen just because that's mostly what I grew up with and I never got rid of my childhood collection. They also seem to be by far the easiest to find secondhand at thrift stores and antique stores. I hardly have any G2 since they never seem to pop up secondhand around me. I've eased off G4 a bit just because there are hardly any new characters and I'm crunched on space so unless its someone I'm really interested in I've been passing most new releases. I still love the ones I do have though!


Thanks to Sapphire Rain for my sig!

I suggest you to allow multiple choices to your poll, it may be better. (And also add G3.5, I'd be interested to see how many people collect them. ^_^ )

I like most gens, I seem to dislike reboots. I don't like G3.5, and the new G4's annoy me as well, because I don't like the new heads (especially the princesses and the boys), or the wide-set hind legs. Horses don't have ultimate thigh gap!

I adore G1-3, and find it hard to choose a favourite for sentimental reasons. I have considered selling my G4 collection, mostly out of boredom and being sick of repetition. but they're staying, because I still love them nonetheless.

I added G3.5 (I honestly just forgot them oops!) but I couldnt edit for people to have more than one choice, from what I could see anyway.

Even though G1 had ended a bit before I was born, I still 'grew up' with G1 and a bit of G2 just because my family wasnt super well off and often kept a lot of older toys and hand-me-down toys from my older siblings. But theres still a soft spot for G3s because when they came out, I was young enough to think they were super pretty. I still preferred my old ponies but these were shiny and new.

Isn't it the "Maximum votes per user" in the poll options ? Just make as many as there are choices. But I don't know how a "poll editing" looks like, I just know the "poll posting".

Yeah it was there when I made the poll but its gone now that I want to edit it unfortunately.

Oh, well, I can't help you. I guess it's not hidden in the bottom of your editing area or something.

I'm G1 only.  I was tempted with FIM, but every unicorn figure had evil eyes.  So I got one Fluttershy and one Applejack when they first came out, but that was it.

I'm G1 only, minus the Giant Blank Project Pony from the G3 mold. I couldn't help myself. Giant pony? Yes please!
