I just wanted to share this video because I think this girl's G5 reboot ideas are really cool.  I mean, Hasbro will never use them.  :P  But so what, the ideas are still great and would make a great fanfic.

Spoiler warning, though!  The video does discuss some spoilers for G5 from those leaked Hasbro emails.

One thing I really like is how she also thinks about it from a toy perspective?  And how she pulls in some G1 and G3 elements.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I also love the idea of

I just discovered her and I love her too!  Her deadpan humor is amazing!  (I mean, not in this video, but in her movie reviews.  "This guy's a crocodile.  This guy's a boomerang.")

I was so happy when I saw she had pony videos too!  (This one and some where she's washing G1 ponies, which are just . . . weirdly soothing.)

I found her recently and I love the way she expresses herself. She makes really cool videos. ^^ Anyway, I watched that one and I really like her ideas. She's even thinking about the toyline and mixes ideas from the previous generations, that's really lovely. :D

What's so creative about it? She's basically just doing the same thing that Hasbro's current MLP and a million shows before and after it have rehashed ad naseum.

Because what was TS doing? Going to school. What is she doing now? Teaching school. What is EQG? School.

I was thinking moreso the potential for toys, if her ideas were to be followed through. Bioluminesence (sp?) for Rarity seems really cool, and bringing Luna back AS Twilight Sparkle is a neat idea.

Not really. Twilight Sparkle and Rarity are everywhere. And I never want to see them on the shelves again.  Because everyone and their dog has ten of them. Glow in the dark has been done before too. As well as the species swap.

I'm afraid that any reboot that involves rebooting the mane 6 is not a reboot to me. I pretty much agree with LAW that it's not that original, although she is right that kids do read boarding school stories :/

In any case, it's interesting to note that Applejack is the one that sells out most quickly in this area. I've also seen little girls specifically asking their mother for Applejack. It's kind of problematic here that she deals cider which in UK lingo is alcohol, but aside that she seems pretty popular with the kids over this way.

Besides, she is the thread to the old MLP and that's why she's there. And I am sure a part of why there are elements of the fandom that don't like her is because of that thread to old MLP. I don't think it's about what kids like or don't like. I think it's about what bronies like or don't like...

In any case, without disrespecting the youtuber, there's nothing really new in this concept. New would be really new. New characters. New setting. New concept. New structure of ponyland. New everything. This isn't reboot, it's more rinse and recycle.

(Yeah, I know if there's a reboot we're probably stuck with mane 6, but I really want people to move away from the ideas that G1 was in any way tied to animation and that a reboot has to reprise any aspects of the previous generation. Because, frankly, we did fine before that was a thing and I'd like to see Hasbro create something brand new for a brand new generation of kids.

No offence to the video person. I'm sure she's awesome.  Just, if you can use screengrabs of existing things for an idea, it's really not a new idea...
