in the wild for me it was my sister finding a winger, I think she is tropical breeze, the one with the green hair. She does have a bit of a trim but her wings are intact, and she is in really good shape for a quarter.

ok I just saw there was another glow and show pony that's in star dancer pose??

I cannot stand ebay now I can't pull up original listings but here's a newly discovered prototype?? I would love to know the history

https://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-G1-My-Little-Pony-Prototype-Lot-WOW/173344424447?hash=item285c2201ff:g:~cUAAOSwCRRbEIvu

and I think my other favorite was a birthday pony that had the yellow on her that I think was an escapee from the RI factory as well


this one = thanks wiki (and the owner!)

Man congrats thats very lucky. I probably would of dug in there too trying to find the missing two. Were you able to find other other missing two someday?

I still haven't got Baby Dancing Butterflies or Baby Up Up and Away, they're so insanely expensive.  It doesn't help that the currency conversion from USD to AUD makes every pony I import very expensive, so ponies who are already pricey to begin with are a significant expense by the time they finally end up in my hands.  One day I'll get them, but probably not soon!

I saw that lot: it went for crazy money.

Congrats everyone on finding so many great ponies!

For myself: I have only ever found 2 (yes: two) ponies in the wild. They were Cotton Candy and Coco Berry. Neither rare in the slightest.

On our local auction site I have bought Scandanavian Truly with differently coloured symbols, Scandanavian Cupcake (she has a forelock trim), Munchy and Night Glider. Of the four I can only say that I paid a decent market-related price for Night Glider. The others were below market price, but this will not happen now: ponies have become crazy expensive in SA over the past 6 months or so. One exception was the Secret Surprise Mommy pony (no twins) who went for a steal. Not to me though; to a fellow collector who I do not bid against by mutual agreement.

When I see prototypes come up like that, I can't help but wonder if they originated in the cave of wonders...When Helen's collection got dispersed, a lot of treasures went out into the wilderness. She never bragged about any of the stuff she'd acquired, so I always wonder whether these things are really newly discovered or if they're actually things she had 20 years ago that ended up passing through different hands to now.

They are very cool, though. Congrats to whoever adopted them. It seems like they did a lot of experimenting with sparkle pony bodies to make the glowing magic thing work. It makes me wonder if there's also a sky rockety one (Starglow colour) out there...

As for the Birthday Pony, she, along with the yellow/white haired Starglow are two ponies I would love to see in person. I don't need to own them, but my curiosity about such things makes me want to peer at them xD. I've been lucky enough to see some amazing ponies at ponycon, but those two I don't think have ever been on this side of the atlantic :/

Mine would probably be Quackers. But I didn't find her, my dad did, for 50p! Shes very well loved because I got her a good 10 years ago and I wasn't exactly the most careful child... Her symbols are perfect still though.

The person selling that prototype was Baby Gloomy (eBay name) . . . That name rings a bell, I think she was a collector from way back in the day.

Yes, I agree, I remember her name too. That's what made me think of the cave of wonders. I mean, even if not from that collection, there were people back then exchanging these kinds of things without us ever getting to know about them.

@Cookifaa - if that was here in the UK, then that counts. She wasn't sold here, so definitely super rare ;)

I wouldn't worry about it sometimes we think the ponies that are the most rarest are unobtainable and life likes to throw curve balls maybe you might get lucky. :)

A very pretty 'Peachy' who was an 'extra' in a lot I bought for some other ponies in it. She is actually Macau Nelly!

I guess rarity depends upon where you are in the world too, some of my other ponies are sought-after UK releases.
