I was thinking more the idea of having color swirl plastic.  If you tried to combine two different colors to make the swirly effect would it come out the way it was envisioned?  Would the colors blend too much or too little?  Would it cause the vinyl to not adhere to itself properly or shrink/expand at different rates?

I don't think that would have been an issue. There are plenty of things made of swirl plastic, and even pearlized! Buttons, bouncy balls...  I have tons of dice that are swirly and pearlized and looks amazing. The only thing is that each one would have been different, but I would have thought of that as a plus! ^^

It's not like swirly marble patterns aren't possible.

Technically all of the Glowing Magic/G&S ponies are different because of the placement of their glowing stars and the hearts (not to mention the density of the plastic and sometimes the colour of the hearts). I quite like the idea of unique ponies to be honest :)

The only aspect of the Celestials (yes I will keep calling them that because it sounds nicer xD) that I don't like so much is the 'antennae'. I don't totally understand the purpose (but then I still don't understand the pocket ponies 20+ years on and even though I stared at them in the store like they were aliens I still bought one, so I guess it doesn't really matter?)

They are meant to be Extraterrestrial ponies, so I guess the antennae give them that "out of this world" look. I think it looks cute ^^

I just want to see them mass produced in some way. I know a lot of people think the swirls were meant to be in the plastic but could they have just been solid pearly translucent ponies with the swirls meant to be applied in a special application method. That could even be why they never got made is because they couldn't figure out how to apply the inner legs and belly. Even if Basic Fun decides to do them I'd still like to see a HQG1C based on the concept at the very least.

I think it more likely US people will get responses. I can't see them sending letters all over the world...

I did give them my e-mail address on my letter; I felt that giving them another communication avenue might encourage someone to reply.

I will say if this ever was a kick starter project I would back it in a heartbeat.

I actually feel like the lack of "thanks for your input" form letters is a good thing . . . ?  Like, to me that suggests they might be meeting / discussing these ponies / waiting for more info on them from Hasbro before replying.  Companies can move quite slowly;  everyone has their day to day responsibilities so scheduling a meeting can be a bit of a pain in the butt and take some time.  (At least that is the case where I work, lol.)

So to me their radio silence suggests they might be exploring the possibility.  And it's a lot better than a politely worded 'no'.  ;)

In other news I'll be holding the giveaway when I get back from vacation (currently I'm in Hawaii), which will be late February or early March depending how organized I am.

Hawai'i sounds nice. It's so cold here, although today was at least sunny. Hope you're having a good time :D

I don't really expect them to communicate anything any more. They annoyed me when they answered my initial enquiry email after a month to give me a copy paste message stating that Rainbow Ponies might be coming out in the US at the end of the year. Obviously I didn't ask anything about the US - but it seems like their PR department is only set up to deal with communication about US release. It's only on facebook that you can actually get human replies, and we haven't been using that for this :/

I was reminded of how great The Bridge Direct's facebook people are when I went on TRU's Facebook and asked if they would stock the retro ponies and got a generic "Here's a link to all our great MLP products!" response.  (And I had specified they were retro ponies from The Bridge Direct, not Hasbro ponies, too.)

from reading the reply from Foxtale on the 35th anniversary post,  it looks like our letters have been received :D

Yeah it would. The Color Swirl Ponies exist.

The swirls on Color Swirl Ponies is paint, just like the eyes and symbols. The plastic itself is just a solid color.
