I've only recently started looking at the HQG1Cs and am really quite intrigued!  It's wonderful that people are continuing to design and produce G1 moulded ponies with fun new colourings and symbols.  Am not really a fan of custom ponies where the base body is a real G1, as it takes the pony out of circulation and I don't like to think of there being one less G1 pony in the world.  But the HQG1Cs ponies are a wonderful alternative!  One day hopefully soon I will order some.  Very cool.

Anybody have the Valentine girls?  I just opened mine.  I got the pearly versions, and I am somewhat...underwhelmed, disappointed?  There is a black spot on the white one's right shoulder.  I know they say that they may have random marks but it is so obvious on the white pony!  And it seems like it is under the pearly coating, so assuming it is not removable.  Also, the red's pearly coating is hard to distinguish on her coloring.  I just feel like they were not quite worth what was charged for them.  They just aren't as great as some of the past releases.  Especially, being more expensive being pearly.  Anyone else somewhat underwhelmed by these or any other release?  I feel like I am just stuck with them, especially with the black spot on the shoulder of the white one.  Maybe it's time to learn re-hairing and maybe that will help me like the white one more even with the black spot.  I feel like I am talking about Jack Sparrow's black spot summoning the Kraken lol. 

Sent you a PM ;)

Totally agree on this Taffeta!  Genie’s hair was styled and bagged by myself, so that’s why it’s different. They also styled Puppy Loves and then after that they got lazy and started just throwing them in bags after they were haired. It bothered me so much, and finally with upcoming releases (including fair Pony), all will be styled and then sealed in bag. We asked about the plastic wrap around the face, but weren’t willing to do it. Also we thought about the plastic rubber bands to go around the neck and tail, but I was afraid it would just ruin the plastic over time if kept
Mib.
I will post some bagged updates of Pepper Jack and the Fair Pony shortly. :)
I only have the regular valentines and there aren't any flaws I can see in terms of marks and such. The hair is pretty wild on them, though. I haven't had a chance to do anything about it yet. Genie (who I don't have) has such nice untangled hair from factory, so I do wonder if the rooting is different for some of these. It's not really a complaint, just an observation. I like working with pony hair and doing the hair and stuff but I wonder if there is any way in the packaging of these before distribution that some kind of tie or something could be used to prevent hair getting tangled (especially if going into long distance transit?) MLP used to use (and retro ones still use) plastic strips to keep the hair from getting tangled and messed up. I wonder about that for future releases that have small heads and lots of hair...

@Clipper- great news on the hair :D Thank you for that heads up.

Also, is this fair pony going to be transferred over to Ponycon as well or is she simply US fair only? (Of course you might not be able to say this for sure yet).

I am not sure if I want to get her as I am not a fan of the sitting pose, but she has lovely colours, and if she were to be a Con pony here I might be tempted.

Pepperjack looks very handsome. The colours work really nicely together.

SweetTune put her on pre order in the fair shop recently. You can get her with a membership support for the fair (international option included). I can confirm she is not rolling over as a uk ponycon exclusive.
She is even more beautiful in person! I hope you end up getting her. I know she is more then half way sold out.

Glad you like Pepper Jack. He should be arriving Monday, so I will take more photos of him then. :)

If she isn't coming to the UK then I will probably pass. With currency conversion, shipping and import duty it's kind of expensive. But she is very pretty and I will enjoy seeing other people's pictures of her when she is shipped out :)

Are these guys' hair good to flatiron? I'm thinking about trying to separate Celebrate's tinsel from his hair long enough to flatiron it once or twice, since I've tried everything else and his hair just will not lay flat.

I loooove the sitting pose and the pink flamingo really pops with the fair pony's blue body.  Looking forward to her!

@.@ Ahhh she's so gorgeous!! :lovey:

This might sound weird or lame but I was wondering by chance if maybe anyone else would want to collectively think of a secondary name for her as well, maybe like an unofficial "Fan name" if that makes sense?
I've been thinking about that for a bit because I've been wanting to give mine a nickname like other pony names, other than just Fair Pony 2018. xD I personally think that might be kind of fun! :D
Or maybe if her creators had any pony names in mind for her? :D
I'm also Esbayne on the MH Arena and everywhere else.
You can find me on Ponyisland.

Gorgeous color combo on the sitting flamingo pony. She reminds me a bit of G3 Shenanigans and Tink-a-tink-a-too!

I saw a picture of her where she was called Fair Feathers . . . I don't know if that's her official name or if the person posting just came up with it.
