@PKW - yep. But this time the disease spreads into 1988 as well I think ;)

That thread and the 2012 one kind of expose the big problems that still face our community. There have been some huge scams like the reverse gusty custom versions, which have made folk sceptical - but then again a lot of ponies we know for sure as real now began life as assumed fakies.

The moral is basically to examine every possibility and detail first I guess? I didn't realise there was a third one, but that kind of sums up for me that this is a weird Hasbro thing. Balance of probabilities, given how ridiculous some of the variant princesses/happytails/summer windy wings/flutters look (no hair and 3 combs?), that this kind of thing is possible. Is it more likely that Hasbro did this atrocity or is it more likely someone rerooted the forelock of Pearl's mane, imported a Taffeta and savaged three ponies, one of which wasn't sold here, to create a pony just to shove it into a generic lot with no identification and sell it for a bulk £20? It would cost more to do all of that work to invent it, which to me makes it much more likely this is real. I mean, you'd pay more just to buy Taffeta, not to mention import and shipping.


But PKW is right. Even as UK variants go, it looks stupid. :)

Although I kind of like that she does.

And now I want to know if there is a pony out there with Pearl's body, Sundance's head and a pink tail with tinsel. Or something else...Because when we first knew about the UK variants, we only knew about a handful of them and a lot of them were first looked at suspiciously (and sometimes still are) as put-together jobs. But there are literally around a hundred of those now known with minor or major differences...so who knows? There may well be more...

Re the tail - maybe half is in Sunsparkle's and half is in Winterblossom's, given that one has the tinsel and one doesn't, but both are thin xD.

sweet :-) another oddball turns up

love the history of the put-togethers that explanation about China makes sense and yes to the thin tail for the two part aspect of how they do a thin tail with tinsel and then thicker tail hair

well that is just an awesome pony in the wild find ...lots of play left

Taffeta, I think it does spread into 1988, I was looking at just which ponies were have oddities of and some are in the 1988 year.

There were lots of reasons to be sceptical and I was VERY sceptical when that first Princess Sundance showed up. I can’t remember what happened to that pony though and I didn’t save any pictures and I can’t remember all her details. What I know now is I have a deeper understanding of things and better knowledge, which I didn’t have then.

The whole reverse Gusty scam really did ruin things for everyone -_-

Regarding the tail, tinsel does pull out easily or get snapped off. I’ve found “tinsel roots” inside princesses before now. It does appear to be a white tail with no tinsel.

Anyone else wondering what Taffeta Princess Sun Pearl (or Pearl Dance) would look like? I’m over here trying to figure out what way her head would be facing!

Back over her shoulder, staring back the way she's come as if to say, "what did you do to me, Hasbro!"

I am generally really sceptical about stuff so like you, I like the detail and the checking. But I also (literally) met Princess Woosie quite early on in my tender years of collecting xD. And that was pretty weird...it taught me Hasbro UK are odd. And also that UK kids are odd because they're willing to buy frankenponies.

I've seen Winterblossom's a few times and I'd love it if #3 turned up. Of course it could be Winterblossom's...or another one. I feel bad for the original seller in 2008 who seems to have come under fire and even been suspected as a scammer in that thread...knowing what we know now, it makes me wonder if the fate of that pony was less than good. Possibly even customisation, since she'd have been assumed to be 'bait'.

I'm really late to the party (I'm having an ME flare up, and we're in the middle of having the kitchen done, so I've not been here for a few weeks),".

My princess is currently in storage, but when I can get at her again, hopefully in a couple of weeks, I'll post pics of her tail, which I have now discovered is loose enough to remove.

We should meet up at ponycon and do them a reunion portrait :)

wow shes super cool! I've not seen this before! I hope we find out more info on her!

Off Topic.. But, I agree with Taffeta on the NC sundance not being made in Spain. Some So Soft Sundances in the US are no country stamp origin as well. So I think it was when they were going through a transition of country change, and maybe forgot to stamp it?

Me neither! I guess that nobody's really checked ones that have been deflocked, but that's super interesting because of the timeframe. If there are SS Sundances not marked HK...and there are releases of Sundance in Europe around the same time not made in Hong Kong, then that's a really positive link between the production lines.

I think she's made in China and they just removed the HK stamp but didn't bother to add a new one. But proving that is circumstantial since we have other ponies actually marked China as well...:/

More investigation needed...o.O. But yeah. Super interesting!
