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! >_<)
I agree on the plastic clothing please make real cloth stuff again like the old pony wear. I would have at least done that for an exclusive.

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.


They should have used that one fabulous version of Moondancer that was pictured in that one Shining Armor and Cadence comic!

The same way it works now with having multiple versions of Moondancer.  I like the show.  But I don't need everything to conform to it.

They're very cute but I think I've lost interest in G4 so probably won't be buying them

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. .. .The TF set I'm referencing has one live-action character and two retro G1 ones.

Transformers set, you say? Tell me more, tell me more! I haven't seen it yet.

Yep. Continuity is for the weak. :P

Here you go: https://tformers.com/sdcc-2018-first-transformers-exclusive-revealed-its-a-bumblebee/33811/news.html
Movie verse Bumblebee with two very rare G1 characters, who apparently back in the day were insanely hard to find. All in an eye-catching display box, now that's how you 80s throwback.

*yawn* Sorry... these don't impress me enough as exclusives. They could have done so much more with the 80s theme!

Wait you mean to tell me those are SDCC exclusives?
When I saw them posted yesterday elsewhere I was thinking they would be something for Target release or somesuch.
They are cute but dull and uninteresting to me. I'm  not a fan of the sort of outfit Twilight has (now that I see her wings in that mold work with nothing), don't care for RD's theme there. Actually out of the 3 I like Pinkie of all ponies! But I would not get any of these.

Also does anyone else think this is going to be a set and not individual ponies?
My DeviantArt, why not drop by and take a look [you]

Wow, not feeling any 80s mlp at all looking at these.  :huh: The only thing I see being tribute to the 80's in this set is the 80's fashion or lack there of. Otherwise these look just like what is available on the store shelves currently. Was hoping there was going to be a TBD exclusive offered for SDCC to represent the 80s, so much for logical thinking! Hasbro has lost my interest completely with g4s entirely for sometime now, the magic just is not there for me anymore.

I will agree with members posts above that a generation pack would have been a very very nice homage to the 80s mlp era!
