I think I know what would make a GREAT big brother pegasus pony if they ever made one!  I'm thinking maybe a green body, with hair color similar to baby Ribbs.  Maybe some blue alligator symbols... Hmm, sounds like the perfect big brother to me!

Yes . . . their hotter cousins, clearly.  :P

Sunset, the curls on your Dasher are stunning!  Like perfect candy canes!

I found more pics of my ponies . . .

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Thanks!  Love your Celebration.  He looks so handsome!



Who's the little white sparkle baby Sunset?! :lovey: :frolic:

Baby Wishes.  She was the special extra for ordering a special big bundle.  She's part of the glitter island set.  Her symbol takes elements from both Genie and Celebration.  Whether siblings or parents is up to you :)

Looks like you can get her alone now if you want.

Are alot of these limited? Or is there a place similar to Katz, where, if I was interested in getting Genie, I could order her? Sorry, I've been trying to educate myself on these, too.

You can still get Genie here on Clipper's sale page

https://clipper.ecrater.com/c/2078822/g1-hq-collector-customs

Or PaintKitty's Stall

https://paintkittysstall.ecrater.com/c/2133067/hqg1c

I don't know if I'm the best to answer the limited question.  Hopefully Clipper or PaintKitty's or one of the others will be along in a little bit and answer that question.

They are all limited small runs, which is the reasoning for them being 'pricey'. Quality is also very good , and each pony has a story / meaning behind them. 

There is more info on hqg1c in the for sale section on the arena.. both by me and one by wingsofmesquerade. They explain the project and also show the links for each region.

I think all questions have been answered. But I will
Come back to check in to see if I can help any further .

these are some of the original threads on the discussion and sales and trade about the project. There is now a UK source for the hq ponies .... paintkittysstall.ecrater.co.uk

On the price point thing...of you commissioned a custom from someone, or a plush, you would probably pay similar and technically those are non official thus also bootlegs of a kind...?

Also the HQG1C's are small runs by necessity (because a small, select group of people are interested in them) and with small runs, there is more overhead per item.  That's just the reality of it.  They are not making a pile of money by making these customs, lol.  The money gets reinvested in the project . . . making new molds, ordering more ponies, paying for the shipping from China, etc.  They're a true labor of love.  :)

They are still mass produced in a Chinese factory... hardly the same thing as a handmade item.

I like them... but they are pretty pricey for what is essentially bootlegs.

Well they are making these for the pony community. You pay a lot for ponies who are painted and maybe even rehaired too. They had to recreate the moulds and hair them and stuff. That's pretty cheap for something like that.

They're too expensive for what you get, IMO.  There's a huge difference between a unique hand made custom and a mass produced bootleg.  That said I'm happy to see them exist all the same, since it means fewer original G1's ending up as custom fodder.  Would probably be much more interested if they were in the 10-15$ range.
G1 Wishlist  It's the final countdown! Looking to purchase the last few G1's for my collection - Watercolor Baby Sea Ponies Foamy, Misty & Surfy - Red Roses - SHS Sweet Sundrop - Springy - Teeny Tiny Snookums (#2)
