« on: December 16, 2018, 05:20:46 AM »
Hello fellow ponies,
I have a question I'm going threw my inventory again on excel, and I dont know how much mint in bag Baybreeze is... does anyone know what Ebay prices go to for her or how much she is worth?
They only made 300 of her.

No idea how much Baybreeze goes for, but the most expensive pony... Not including unreleased prototypes, I'd guess Takara ponies?

Aren't the Greeks and South Africans super pricey? I've seen Baby Bluebelle go for $1,000.00

I would think it's one of the OOAK ponies, but to be frank, only because someone was willing to pay that amount for them. And as there's only one of them, it's hard to form a price consensus. I don't know any specifics but it has been said that someone has paid $10,000 for a pony before now.

I've seen similar crazy prices for Jem prototypes but I can't imagine spending that amount of money on a pony. Not even a OOAK one. If you have the money and it makes you happy, I would never judge you or say you shouldn't - but I just couldn't do it ><.

I also believe that it's probably a pony that's OOAK and/or prototype.

I thought it was that Greek Ladybird pony that comes in the red egg that was considered to be the most valuable?

I know of a few Greek ponies, south African and Nirvana ooaks sell for $4000 + each. Most of the auctions for these types of ponies are silent and public doesn't get to see the final prices (I personally knew the buyers or sellers to know the final price).

Nirvana's and takara sell for way more than any UK/ us release

Depends if you're talking about mass produced ponies or prototypes IMO.  Of mass produced ponies, probably the Takaras or Ladybird?

I definitely agree!  The mass produced ponies are ~$1000-$5000.  The prototypes surpass that and as nhal039 said, with private sales, we have no way of knowing what the market will bear...

Even through I was surprised how much I saw Ladybird on ebay the other day, she wasn't as much as I remember her going for.

are takara ponies a fakie?
is there any guess for baybreeze? since there are only 300 of her made does that make her the holy grail for ponies?
OOAK ponies.... is that customs or are you talking about the charity ones?
I have an "Wahlburgers Fan" custom made by my friend here on the arena. :D
I can't legally sell it to make profit. but I'm glad I have her.

Nope, they're official ponies that the Japanese toy company Takara released in Japan, licensed by Hasbro with the My Little Pony name in the 80's. They didn't sell very well, so now they're really hard to find and go for at least $1,000, usually a little more than that.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

They're so cute... shame I don't have the patience required to save up for one of these cuties. :P

OOAK in this case isn't custom ponies.   It's ponies found that maybe were prototypes or the factory did a boo boo like Reverse Gusty where her mane is red with a green stripe instead of green with red stripe.    Or a pony where maybe there were others made but there are no known others that have been found or maybe just one other.   I'm thinking of the pink haired Argentina Gusty with gold leafs that appeared earlier in the year.

Bay Breeze might have been a very limited number but price also depends on how desirable she is.   G1 ponies seem to fetch much higher prices than any G2, G3 or G4 ponies.  So Bay Breeze doesn't have that in her favour being G3. 

For regular production ponies I would have picked Greek Ladybird, Takaras and South African ponies.   They are all priced far out of my budgets but they aure are pretty.  I'd love to have a South African.

Reverse Gusty isn't a OOAK (one of a kind) pony, but she';s dogged by problems from all the fakes that have been made. I think there are three or four which have the paper trail to prove that they aren't fakes, or customs, but yeah. It's a bit of a minefield with that one honestly. And I still have some latent scepticism about what their intention was.

Ladybird used to sell for insane prices but I have seen her more cheaply since then. There are some really rare Greeks I think that are one or two known ponies out there. But I don't know what their current going rate is.

Even one of a kind or potential prototype or sample ponies aren't guaranteed to sell for stupid amounts, though. It depends a lot on the buyer and the interest as well as the pony...and how well it can be authenticated.

It's really hard as well with all the (understandably) secret transactions to really estimate.

I don't understand why people spend silly money on damaged South African ponies, but I've seen a couple of really wrecked ones sell for thousands.
