There is, but it's annoying to have to do that to a pony fresh out of the packaging. I'm going to be complaining about this design choice through Hasbro's customer feedback form

Agreed!

...I belatedly realized that Hasbro used completely the wrong body for Soarin!
He's not larger like Shining Armor and Big Mac are, nor does he have feathered hooves like they do...
Nice going, Hasbro!

Yes he does? I think you may wanna take a closer look at the photo in the original post.

I think you may wanna take a closer look at my post. I said that Hasbro used completely the wrong body. Yes, this toy has feathered hooves... But Soarin's actual design does not. Nor is he supposed to be bigger like Shining and Big Mac are.

Ahh, I see. I think asking for several male shapes would be expecting a bit much when it comes to Hasbro. As great as it'd be to see more unique character molds, I don't see it happening anytime soon.

They wouldn't need to, they could just use the basic pegasus mold for his body.

That's clearly asking too much of Hasbro.  They shun variety like vampires shun sunlight these days.

Really? Because recycling an existing mold with mere cosmetic differences seems to be their favorite thing especially in MLP :p

Can't wait to find him.  I didn't know that they had holes on the back to see their real symbols!  Were those there with wave 1?  I have Big Mac but don't remember that.  I like these because they are new characters but still wish they had symbol on the DS.

Yep, Wave 1 had the holes in the package too.

All toy companies do that yes. But the degree which Hasbro has drastically reduced the sheer variety of moulds (and worse characters) since Gen 3 is pitiful.

My point was that they wouldn't need a new mold to do Soarin's body right, they could just use one they've already got.

..So you're suggesting he should've had the boy head and the female pegasus body? That'd look weird o.O The larger male head wouldn't look right with the skinny noodle female legs, I wouldn't think..

Yes, that's exactly what I'm saying. It would look basically like his show design I'd think - A lot of show stallions have more or less identical bodies to the mares, and it's plainly seen with Soarin when he stands next to Spitfire
