taken from this link here

https://www.cnbc.com/2014/08/07/giddyap-my-little-ponys-innovative-stampede.html

its from a fair in 2014. are these prototypes of the original from back in the day? going by the shiny plastic and how their hair is set into it, they look like hard plastic or ceramic maybe?

they look pretty cool, does anybody know anything about these or have seen them, or was there then.

cheers guys  ;)

I've never seen these before, I think there is a hairless pony that gets taken out for fairs, but I can't find it and I'm pretty sure the hairless pony has hair plugs.
I imagine if they were made like this, I wouldn't be as enchanted with them.

pretty sure they're fair/prototypes  almost look more like my pretty pony since if  I remember right the original six were supposed to be her scale

Those are 25th anniversary Collector ponies IMO.  Cotton Candy's hot pink hair, the weird eyes, and the lack of forelocks are the tip offs.

Edit:  Okay, clicking on the photo to get a close up I see what you mean about the hair!  It's in a slot, much like on a Dream Beauty or Barbie horse.

So I do think they must be prototypes . . . But I still think they are prototypes for the 25th anniversary ponies because the 'alien eyes' are dead on for them, lol.  That was also the only time Cotton Candy had hot pink hair.  She always has "medium" pink hair in early promotional materials, just like her actual G1 toy.  Perhaps they toyed with the idea of slotted hair in an attempt to save money off the 25th anniversary ponies?  I imagine it's cheaper than rooting it strand by strand.

The 25s were hard plastic, true, but they aren't shiny, nor does their mane attach that way.

Edit: prototype 25s makes sense.

thanks for your ideas guys :) yeah weird huh? but im glad im not the only one this is new to, i hate missing out on stuff :lol:.
 hopefully someone was there and knows.
could be proto 25th Anni's.
though my first guess was my pretty ponies done in the main 6. how exciting that would have been. :D but that would mean those combs are super large.

Ohhh, what a cute idea!  <3  That would be a fun custom project . . . if you have the room, ha ha!

But yeah, My Pretty Pony was put together differently.  (Two halves of the pony glued together at the middle, like a Barbie horse, instead of having a seam at the neck.)

Edit:   WOW, I've never seen that lavender MPP prototype before!  Awesome!

I think they are prototypes for the 25th anniversary ponies. They have the same colors. Cotton Candy's hot pink hair and etc. They also look to have the same molds with the same beady eyes. A MPP Collector's Pose six prototypes wouldn't make sense because first of all, they have separate heads and bodies, MPP did not (hard plastic split down the middle). Secondly, they are have the symbols they were produced with. At first, the CP six were planned to all have Cotton Candy's symbol.  Then they came up with separate symbols. Since MPP was made before the Flat Foot ponies, it wouldn't make sense. The timeline wouldn't fit. Thirdly, they would probably keep the mechanism and build of MPP, just with different markings and colors and eye colors. And MPP's plastic isn't that shiny. I'm guessing these guys were coated with a glossy seal.

the funniest thing is, the only other place this photo turns up is in an article about "30 things women over 30 should'nt own" along with the caption under the ponies saying "It’s a fad right now, but that doesn’t make it any less creepy."  :haha:
so - whoever wants to get rid of those little pony creeps - I'll help you out  :biggrin:

I dunno...I find it sad and annoying rather than funny. It's that "We can tell you who to be" mentality about wider society that I hate. And you notice these things are generally targeted at women, rather than at men. Often written by women, as well. I just find it sad...also sexist as it's the usual 'women should grow up, men can carry on playing' mentality.

Also people who spend their time writing lists of things other people they've never met shouldn't have are really creepy O.o. I mean, they're obsessing over the lives of people they don't know O.O.
