Do you have her? What do you think of her? Share some more pics!

I adore her. What was up with the name recycling?

I'll pass. They went overboard with this one to the point where, impo and no offense, she just looks incredibly tacky. It is interesting to note that G3s were not the first ones with eye shapes after all. I didn't know she had stars in her eyes.

I'm on the fence about her. I wouldn't turn her up if I saw her in person. I would buy her. I don't mind her. She is very different I like her fiber optic crown.

She is... quite interesting! I'd like to have her. I think I like her for the same reasons as the eyelash princesses, it's so tacky it's endearing.

One of my childhood ponies! I had her in great condition and sold her years ago here on the Arena :)
Her tiara was everything to me. I loved playing with it and I didn't brush her hair a lot because of the tinsel.

I'll pass - not a fan of gimmicks to begin with, and she's WAY too over the top for my taste.

I opened this expecting Princess Sparkle/Amethyst :lol:

I’m not sure about her. I want to like her but she does seem a little over the top.

I have her as a childhood pony, albeit in French box (Princesse de Lumiere)!

It also wasn't name recycling as she wasn't sold in the US or Canada, and there was no other pony in the UK sold under the name of Princess Sparkle ;)

Brand new to me. She's cute, and I love her glitter, but I'd try to pick up a dingy hair one so I can give her nicer hair colors. Pink and purple just doesn't do much for me!

Low-key want her, though not nearly as much as I want Year 5 Princess Sparkle (whom I had initially assumed the thread was about). Please edit the thread title for clarity

You know, I think I'd really love to have her provided her fiber optic crown still worked. She's a glittery pinkness of early 0's girlishness with a gaudy gimmick and somehow...

I like her.

She's never really impressed me before. I might actually bump her up my want list...

My personal impression of her, having grown up with her, is that she's just plain weird.

I mean, it's like she loved glitter glue so much she went and rolled in it.

She feels really rough and sandpapery because of all the glitter all over her body. If it were just a pearlescent or glittery sheen then that would be one thing, but she's literally encrusted with it. Though it doesn't come off, I will give her credit for that. I have seen her with broken capes and missing capes and filthy dirty too - but never with missing glitter or even a missing crown! (Often a bent crown though).

She also stands slightly taller and bigger than other ponies. Just slightly, but enough to be annoying in shelf storage. But I guess you could call her a tactile pony?

I think mine still works although she hasn't had batteries in for years and it is really pretty. I really liked that about her when I was a kid, but the real reason I bought her was because she was there, I didn't have her, she was on sale and I had some money. Also she was in a French box, and I love other languages, and so that made her special to me.

Although she's Princess Sparkle, and I have her box in English as well now, to me she is still Lumiere (or Lumi), the slightly eccentric French princess who really likes to glitter...

^in the comic. Her one and only story appearance, which I think was in someone's dream. Patch or Sweetheart? Can't remember but I am sure someone will know.

This is her original box from my childhood :D
