Nice to meet ya
« on: May 20, 2018, 04:48:03 PM »
Hello there! I've been meaning to write this introduction for some time now but I've been too shy to do it. (But nevermind that...)

I'm 18 year old girl from Finland. I'm currently in school but in future I'm planning on becoming a librarian. Aside from ponies my major interests include drawing and shoujo manga from 70s and 80s.

I've collected ponies for about six years now. Obviously I'm way too young to be considered original MLP generation but as a child I still got to play with ponies left behind from girls much older than me. Still I never owned any ponies myself so of course I have to compensate that and have all those cute ponies now ;) I think all ponies are cute but for me G1 is the one and only real pony line.

What makes MLP so awesome for me is not only the ponies but the community as well. Nowhere else have I seen so nice and polite group that it also this big, as (G1)pony community. Also the dedication that has been put into listing, researching and archiving this stuff (especially nirvanas) that was originally "just toys" is beyond impressing.

That's about it from me :)

Hi, welcome to the Arena! There are a lot of collectors that didn't grow up with G1 but still collect it here, like myself :) I too am trying to compensate for lack of ponies as a child ;) And yes, not to toot our own horn, but this community is awesome!!! I look forward to seeing you around! Enjoy your stay!

Welcome to the Arena! It's nice to see that even 'younger' collectors still appreciate how wonderful the G1 ponies are! I'm 28 and growing up I bought ponies mostly from the end of the G1 line...so you only missed out by 5 years or so really!
