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.


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

No.

I think they're pretty cute, but I'm not going to go out of my way to get them. I'm glad they're standard brushables and not Fashion Styles, so I don't feel the need to hunt them down.

They're cute, but I feel no need to have them for myself. Which is a good thing, really; I have no idea how I'd get them in the UK XD

The theme is fun, but the execution seems a bit lazy. But it's definitely an okay price ($20), and the packaging will probably be very well designed.

That title though, "My Little Pony Established 1983 Greatest Hits Sets"... With a name like this, the set should have included 1 popular pony of each generation, that would be cool.

Probably meant G1 body molds, instead of poses? It would be a fresh take on both G1 and G4 though.

That's what I meant. Like having Rainbow Dash in Firefly's pose, Fluttershy in Surprise's pose, etc.
I'd love to see an Applejack in the rearing pose
but like the molds. I call the molds poses so sorry if that was confusing  :huh:

I understood perfectly. No. Hasbro has pushed these characters onto the public ad naseum. I'm sick of them and I'm not the only one. Enough is enough.

Understand that I'm not growling at you. Its Hasbro and their hardcore obsession with this particular group. Makes the Bore Core 7 look scarce in comparison.

I am not a fan of these. They are just the same old ponies with plastic clothes that can be removed. A customized could probably remake these easily, especially since there are already multiple Pinkie Pies in that pose.

I don't think some of the poses of G1 would look good in G4. For starters a rearing pose would need a stand, G1s could stand on their own but still sometimes needed the stands.. G4s though would be too top heavy and thus would need a stand. They already seem to have attempted some poses for G4's reboot and to be honest, I cringe at some of them.

I'd love to see G1 pony designs in G4 molds, or G4 pony designs in G1 pony molds.  I think it would be fun.  Heck, throw in G2 and G3 too!

Am I right in saying that last year Hasbro didn't do a MLP exclusive for SDCC?  I think that's the case, right?  Because they were so focused on Hascon?

Well, they're not $50 Fashion Sized ponies.  They have hair, instead of molded plastic.  That's an improvement.  They're still lazy though.  Why couldn't they have done the exact same thing with some ponies that haven't been released yet?  Or make the set in the G4 mold with G1 ponies? The Mane 6 were already based on G1 ponies - why not make Twilight, Firefly, and Surprise?  That's who those three ponies were based off of originally.

Better yet - make the outfits from the G1 ponywear line.  There's a ton of 80s outfits to choose from in that original ponywear line. It wouldn't be hard to find a comparable outfit for each one of those.  Heck, just change the colors on the outfit they've already got to pink legwarmers and headband, add a rainbow cape - boom!  You've got Flashprance. 

They want 80s? How about Neon Lights or City Kids?  What could *possibly* be more 80s than that?  Or go really crazy and go for some of the later outfits. Galaxy Glamour!  Get into the Groove!  Hitting the Slopes!  Sidewalk Surfer!

I think they are cute but it’s a bit disappointing too. Would have liked to see something a bit more different than what you would normally see at the regular stores. I think a new pony other than the mane six with some different features could have worked better. Maybe something artsy like they did with the G3 a few years back. Give them some loud colors and crazy patterns. Something that screams 80’s.
Oh well. Might pick up Rainbow Dash if I ever come across one for a good price.

2016 was GoH Discord and Fluttershy
2017 apparently didn't have an exclusive according to MLP Merch
2018 .... well a disappointment XD
