The art looks adorable. I wish they'd have natural skintones but it looks like they are like EqG and keeping the pony coat color as skintone. I really like Kotobukiya and have collected figures from them in the past. I've since given up that collection though and don't know if I'd start again for MLP. Still, I'm interested to see how they will look.

How long does it usually take Kotobukiya's figures to go from the announcement stage to revealing the sculpt, etc? I wanna know about how long I have to save up money for this!

They should have started here with the EQG. If the dolls with brushable hair had this style they would have made a killing IMO.

I actually really hope they keep the EqG skin tones, because I have no doubt that if they chose natural ones they'd make all characters have the same skintone (read: pale).

I think it can vary depending on the IP but as she's not even listed on the website yet I'd guess to probably see prototypes around summer/comic-con time and a release not until late in the year, maybe Nov./Dec?

I'd love to see them in a variety of tones but unnatural/fantasy colors always put me off from dolls somehow, not just EqG but other dolls I collected too like BJD and EAH. I get an "uncanny valley" feel from them that takes away from their cuteness for me. Pinkie Pie definitely looks pink in that image so I expect the others to match their pony colors too.

Actually.
I think they might have normal skin tone. I'm really hoping.

To me, I think she just has a pink color skin tone, but not intended to be pink. Her "ear" headband is the same color as the pony, but her skin (like her leg) is not like the pony. At least, that's what I'm hoping for-- a human cosplaying would be better than EQG-ish.

I hope they keep the unnatural skin colours.. the thing I like about EQG is that they're *not* humans. Anthro ponies/weirdly coloured humans are more interesting to me :p

As long as they don't make them sexy. I'd hate to see that Pinkie with her panties halfway exposed for extra "cuteness".

Also this. I mean, I don't mind fanservice in and of itself, but this isn't the place for it, lol.

The thing with the skin tones is that well everyone has a different opinion on what character would fit what ethnicity. So keep the unnatural tones so fans can still have their own personal ideas of what natural tone they see them in ;)

yesss, this too. I love seeing everyone's different interpretations, I'd hate it for there to be an "official" answer. (Not to mention all the silly drama it would cause, lol)

I also love seeing different interpretations-- even if it's not what I'm rooting for. The more variety of things, the better.

But there always seems to be drama, no matter what happens...

Expecting a reveal of the Pinkie figure as SDCC preview night is tonight and Kotobukiya is releasing posters at their booth. This is the only thing I'm really excited to see this year from the con.

Here is an announcement about the posters:
https://sdccblog.com/2018/06/kotobukiya-san-diego-comic-con-2018-exclusives/

I'm very intrigued given how the designs are listed that there may be 2 more figures revealed in illustration form
Quote
Day 1 (7/19): BISHOUJO A (Pinkie Pie) & BISHOUJO B
Day 2 (7/20): BISHOUJO C & Group Illustration
Day 3 (7/21): BISHOUJO A (Pinkie Pie) & BISHOUJO B
Day 4 (7/22): BISHOUJO C & Group Illustration
If Pinkie is 'A', I presume Twilight who was teased before is 'B', I wonder who 'C' is? (guess would be RD given how the anything G4 is generally released)

Fluttershy! She looks so cute! Can't say I was expecting her to be the next one.

Neat, I was wondering when we'd hear more about these. I don't know if I'll be able to aquire any when they release, but I'm interested in trying.

The human figures are cute but I am in the camp that would have liked more than one skin tone. Remember when EqG got flack for being pastel shades and not the pony colors? Now three of them are already pale pink or pale beige. It just looks a little off to me. Like cosplayers, but maybe that was the intention?

The pony figures on the other hand look super creepy. It just shows off how freaky G4 proportions are compared to the style of the human figures.
