Who needs a walk in anyone else's horseshoes when AJ can just swap heads with her older brother :P?

Wait... does this mean that she can now READ BIG MACINTOSH'S MIND?

Oh man... this needs to be an episode. Imagine it as an MLP 'Treehouse of Horror'-type installment.

Also love the rogue G3.5 Ponyville Sweetie Belle lurking at the upper edge of the group there.

There's a law in China that says factory workers can take things/materials out of factory garbage bins for free and resell/reuse them.  If you look carefully at the blindbags you can see that they're not all cast in one piece.  Weirdly the heads and manes are separate pieces stuck together later.  What I'm guessing happened here is that someone scored a bunch of badly cast pony pieces, picked out the best bits, stuck 'em together randomly and called it good.   Or some bootlegger made heads and bodies out of whatever scrap plastics they had and just sorted 'em out later.

Or the heads and bodies are connected by machine and something got way out of order.... way out.

Either way they're hilarious!

And for my purposes fine for bait ponies.

Wooow, that explains a lot!  Not just about these, but also about other less than perfect items I see on Taobao!

Meanwhile--this isn't MLP but I had to share it anyway.

If the box looked like this then I would definitely order this toy, but alas it is pretty generic.

You know, I saw "My Lovely Horsey" in a store today in town and I thought of this thread.

They were very large and looked like Twilight and Cadence rip offs.

I really love Deformation Pleasure. That's just amazing. It actually might be the new mascot of my university. After all, that is pretty much the approach they take to racism. :) Just usually with paint, rather than weapons.

As for the heads...good for customising I guess?

For the record, Mexican jem dolls (hybrids anyway) can look a bit like that. Heads get stuck on random bodies sometimes. I also have a Mexican hybrid Shana who has caucasian hands. Mexican hands are so delicate they break if you even look at them wrong, so it's really unlikely anyone switched them. They'd have broken ><

I think Deformation Pleasure would make a fine mascot for any university!  When I saw his motto I was like, "Well, he's not wrong."

What I love the most is that, against all odds, this bootleg manufacturer came up with a sentence that is grammatically correct and even has some gravitas (I especially love the commas, really gives it some heft), yet used it in a context that makes no sense:  as the tagline of a robot tank that shoots missiles from his abs.  :P

But anyway, moving on from the pleasure of deformation, I had forgotten I found this until it popped back up on my Tumblr feed.  I admit I am proud of spotting this one.

Yes, my friends, you are looking at an inflatable, pony version of Mettaton from Undertale.

His design is based on this picture from DeviantArt.

The artist had no idea it existed until I contacted them.  So not a commission.  Just a bootleg company being weird.

Incidentally he is not, uh, NSFW.  His intended use seems to be as a balloon mascot type thing.  Although that company does make NSFW balloon critters too.  Including a Princess Luna who I will not be posting a picture of, but just know that I was traumatized.  Also some Pokemon.  Just . . . really?  Lugia with boobs??  WHO ASKED FOR THAT?

Edit:  To give an idea of scale, here's a picture of their Rainbow Dash balloon mascot with a lady standing next to it.

Deformation Pleasure? I have a feeling something weird is getting lost in translation. :rofl:

No I do not need extra heads thank you. Could make a good set-up for a head hunter photoshoot though.  :lol:

I showed Deformation Pleasure to my Taiwanese friend who also finds it hilarious but told me that the Chinese text has little resemblance to the English. I can make out a few characters here and there because they're the same in Japanese but a lot of them are different...in any case,  there is nothing to do with racism in the Chinese text xD.
