Don't have any of them but I want them all so bad. These girls are all very, very high on my wishlist. Every pearly pony must be mine...

Bangles was a childhood pony for me. I loved this set when they came out and I saved up my money to buy her. She was more expensive than some of the other adult ponies out at the time but I really wanted her.

Beautiful Bows I actually bought direct from Hasbro UK. Between 1994-5 I had correspondance with a lovely lady there at customer service. At this time she told me that there were some ponies they had left over in stock and she said it would be possible to purchase one if I wanted. So I bought Beautiful Bows. I was only 12 at the time ;) so obviously she came out of her box.

I have both of the boxes for these two, as well as their original mirror combs. Bangles was a bit more played with but they are both in good condition.

Starlight I got from a carboot sale. She is probably the most played with of the three because of her previous home, but still pretty nice.

I didn't get her with her comb, but the UK pony comic gave away mirror combs as freebies on one edition and I was lucky enough that the comb I got was Starlight's.

So I have the three of them with their combs :) and 2 boxes.

Bangles is still my favourite :) I still think these are a really pretty set.

BUT!

Those twisty things are sort of disturbingly alien if you let them get away from you ;)

I don't have these guys yet.  Honestly, not much a fan of the weird bendy snake-like twisty thing, it's a bit Borg-ish  :lol:

But I'm committed to owning as many G1 ponies as possible, so eventually I will get them.  Just not in a big rush to do so.

Pearly+long hair=want! I don't have any of them, sadly. I think my favorite is Bangles :biggrin:

While I would love any of these girls, if I could be gifted one I would choose Starlight because I love ponies with star themes.

Pass. These and the Great Hairs are really...well no offense, but I think they're butt ugly. The colors clash, the symbols are gaudy, the hair is weird and the pearlescence makes it worse somehow.

I'll pass on these. I had Bangles at one point but eventually sold her, she looks nice in photos but somehow she just didn't do it for me, in-person. I think it's the pearly body.. the snake bendies are pretty weird, too.

I love their fringes, though. So cute!!

Is it forgotten or just not fed through the hair properly? I have seen a lot of these over the years where the fringe has got pushed back under the mane so it looks like it doesn't have one. The fringe is rooted alternately with the long hair of the mane so it's actually pretty easy for this to happen in loose ponies :/

Fringes = cute but not the best idea for practical brushing!
