I'm a sucker for 80s style and fashion. (I mean, look at my 80s/Synthwave MLP Shirt Designs)
Curious for the packaging. :)

That Rainbow Dash looks so cool, and I love Pinkie's leg warmers!
Wish I could go there to get them...

I love the styles, but they should have G1 ponies even if they're in G4 molds . . . ?  I mean, this is seriously puzzling.  "We are celebrating 1983, but not with 1983 ponies."

That said, love the legwarmers and crimped hair, LOL.

Edit:  Also seems to be fairly cheap for a SDCC set ($20), so at least it's not pricey.  Hasbro usually sells extra on HasbroToyShop.com after the event is over.

What if they had g1 poses with the g4 pony designs, that would be cool!

I won't get them, but I think they are pretty awesome. I LOVE the 80s vibe

I’m 100% getting that Twilight one.  She’s the only one I really like.  The other two look too similar to the million other Pinikies and Dashies, but Twilight is so amazing, with that crimped hair and eyeshadow.

I think the Rainbow Dash one has a different eye shape if you are interested in that? I'm not for sure though and I get it if you still don't want her  ^.^

I don't have a problem with it being G4 ponies for the anniversary as it's all part of MLP. They are very boring in pose, though. I like Twilight's hair in the crimpy style but I don't like anything else about any of them because of the poses (and especially hate when they do Dash's hair like that).

Glad I won't need to get these.

I think Basic Fun TBD have the G1 monopoly atm, but it would've been nice for them to do one example from each generation  -one key character from each (eg Firefly, Ivy, Wysteria, Twilight Sparkle) instead.

I love them! Not really into G4's but they're pretty cool. I'd be all over them if they were G1's, but even though I'm not in a rush to go out and get them I can still appreciate the cuteness!

Love the 80s vibe but I'm going to pass on them. It seems Transformers has this blown out of the water in terms of retro 80s throwback. So that's getting my money, sorry MLP I think you missed the boat. Could have had one G1 or even two and one G4. The TF set I'm referencing has one live-action character and two retro G1 ones.

Eeehhh... they're cute, and they're definitely better than the glittery light-up DJ from a few years ago, but.. idk they just don't really feel all that special? I mean, I could probably make replicas of these in an hour or so and I'm no customizer by any means. They just feel kinda cheap and lame, I guess.

(also blech! plastic clothing! >_<)
