Whose brush is this?
« on: February 11, 2018, 05:04:53 PM »
Today I acquired a bag of general pony accessories, mostly brushes and combs, from across G1-G3. I have yet to sort out most of them and work out what I have and whether they are ones I need or not, but I wanted to see people's views on this one as I am genuinely having trouble working it out.

It's either Fireball's or Trucker (4Speed's). Unfortunately Ashlyne's super useful comparison photo is no longer available online, and I have checked images online but I am still not sure.

It actually suits me whichever it is. If it's Fireball's, I can trade it. If it's Trucker's, I need it, so I would really just like honest views about how I should be categorising it.

My instinct is that it is probably Trucker's rather than Fireball's. It looks more different in the photo than in real life which is interesting. It's not as distinctive as the difference between Tracks and Ice Crystal's brushes :( I am also slightly worried that I am wanting it to be Trucker's because I need it >.> rather than because it is xD

Comparison photo below with Fireball's brush from my collection. That brush is from my childhood Fireball (ribbon not necessarily, I added that after and it may not be his) so I am 100% sure that is definitely Fireball's brush. I read on other comments that sometimes dye shades may influence differences in the brush shades for Tornado and Fireball vs Quarterback and Trucker so it may not be possible to answer this conclusively and I may end up keeping both just in case...

But I'd appreciate expert views :/

I am absolutely not an accessory expert, but I do have a US 4 Speed and brush from childhood.  I can't post a photo, but can say that mine is definitely a lot lighter and has less of a blue tint than the ones you posted...the purple is more of a lighter lavender.  Hope this helps!  :)

Hi :) Thanks for your input, it does help. THe biggest problem I have is that I don't have a confirmed Trucker/4Speed brush to compare with either my childhood Fireball or this one, which is making it hard to figure out. Photos online show so many different shades :/

http://ponyology.com/mlp/4-speed-1. Ponyology has pics of a MIP 4 Speed whose brush looks true to color (on my monitor) with the brush I have in hand.  Good luck!

Yeah...her site was my first port of call but I guess it is my screen...I couldn't match it conclusively to either. I have the same problem with the ponyology one cookhuman...but thank you for suggesting it.

On my computer monitor, yours look like the same shade of purple but the ones on the website mentioned earlier (https://mylittleponyaccessories.weebly.com/brushes-bird---guitar.html) are slightly different. Fireball's being slightly darker and a more blue shade of purple, while Fireball/4-Speed's is a lighter less saturated purple. Hope this helps!

Thank you all for trying to help me figure this out! It is so hard to do from screens. It seems like most people think it more matches my Fireball brush than doesn't, so maybe that is what it is (being the UK, either is possible), but I will definitely do some more checking before I decide what to do with it. For now I guess it stays with me, until I can be more for sure.

Comparing mlpaccessories pictures to the one you posted originally, I'd say both of those brushes are Fireball's.  4-Speed/Trucker's frog brush has more red in it, while your two are slight shade variants of a cool purple.
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)

Hrm. Skipping between the screens of that image and mine I can see what you mean. I just have trouble comparing the actual  brush because of the glare of the screen. It seems more likely that it's FIreball's though I guess?
