I've never bothered BUT I do like the look of the new seapony babies, so I may get those.

They're very cute Loa. :)

I have picked up some clearanced ponies ,g4.5 killed it for me but did get maybe 3 or 4 since they were new characters or never before made brushables of them like Big Mac ,Songbird and Soarin, sea ponies were not that appealing either but did get 3 that were at 60 % off at target as well as some of the baby sea ponies ,I also got some G4 articulated ones again because they were characters never released before on toy like cheese sandwich with Cannon and the wings with sounds set of the wonderbolts  I think they were like 8 m, I only got a couple .
But today I got me the Cutie Mark Crew Mcdonald ponies , Rarity and Pinkie , I will hunt the rest :) I like them a lot

I never got “in” to collecting g4, but I did pick up the Tempest Shadow brushable before TRU shut down. I’ve been sticking to adding to my g1 collection.

I seldom buy G4's, but it's been that way throughout. I've tried to approach all the generations that way, to just choose favorites and focus on acquiring those instead of being a completion-est (or worse, impulsive!) Zero judgment- I've just got limited space, and I chose the most idiosyncratic and personal way to prioritize...I buy the ones I like the most!  ^.^

Come to think of it, I did buy all eight Baby Sea ponies this year, plus Tempest Shadow.  Which actually makes this a big year for purchases for me. :P

I got frustrated with SO many versions of the same pony.  Eventually I will pick up one of each G4 pony but probably loose, and used.  MAYBE one or two variants I like.  After all, even the original G1s had some that came out with a different version, like the so-softs and such.

G1 is my first pony love but I do have quite a few G4s. It's kind of funny that I don't have a plain unicorn Twilight Sparkle, all of my ponies of her are either Princess Twilights or her sea pony form.

I bought a lot of the MLP movie ponies/sets including 16 (2 of each) Baby sea ponies, two Princess Skystars, sea pony Mane 6 (missing Rarity) and 2 brushable Tempest. If I like a G4 pony, I buy it. :)

I was pretty much collecting everything when the line started, for the first couple years. Then I cut back to just lines I really liked and new characters. Now it's very rare that I get a G4 pony. I just don't need another Mane 6 with repeat accessories and weird gimmicks. The line is feeling boring.

Yeah, I feel the same. I really liked how at first they had characters completely unrelated to the main cast of the show, but now the main six are getting reproduced over and over with more frivolous tattoos and other silly things. I honestly feel like I forked over my money for Haven Bay only because her massive obscurity gave me a breath of fresh in all of this.
I miss the old days where you could keep "meeting" new friends in each box. Whenever I clean up a thrifted pony, I always look up it's backcard or description online to learn something about them. Something about this imaginative adventure is all but gone with these new toys....

Somewhere between 'very rare purchases' and 'never collected G4' - how can those both be true, you ask?  Well I've bought exactly one G4 first hand - a Rainbow Dash with bangs, that'll tell you how long ago it was.  Other than that it's exclusively non-Mane 6 brushables for me, only second-hand and only if they're ~1$ each or less.   I have around twenty-some G4's, and not ever likely to have a big collection.  I don't even have an Applebloom or Scootaloo, though I've seen them for sale but not at a price I'd pay. 
G1 Wishlist  It's the final countdown! Looking to purchase the last few G1's for my collection - Watercolor Baby Sea Ponies Foamy, Misty & Surfy - Red Roses - SHS Sweet Sundrop - Springy - Teeny Tiny Snookums (#2)

I never started.
The only time I will purchase a G4 is if I find them at the goodwill bins and even then most go to my niece who loves them to pieces.

I love reading all these responses. I actually just packed away a few of my G4s into a box last night because they're a bit of a pain to display, and I weeded out some doubles to give to my friend's babysittee.
It's interesting to see how the reboot has effected some collections. I actually felt re-ignited to collect while it completely turned some people off.
