Do you like 'Factory' Errors on Ponies? Do you prefer/look for ones with Factory Errors? Do you have any?

Yes! Love them! I prefer/look for them over the originals! Even if they are a tiny factory error I still want them.
2 (3.5%)
Yes I like most Factory Errors I do not specifically look for them but If I see one I like, I will grab it!
23 (40.4%)
Yes but I only like dramatic 'Factory Error' ponies e.g G1 UK Princesses &/or Wingers. Not interested in little errors.
10 (17.5%)
They are okay, I don't look for them, but if I find one I may keep it.
22 (38.6%)
Nope not one little bit!

hmmm it depends on the error, really. Stuff like the G1 oddballs (Bobbie etc) aren't really my thing, but I do like some of the G4 oddballs/hybrids (like Holly Blue in my sig). Not sure that they really count as "factory errors", though.

But other errors, I don't specifically seek them out but I'll keep them if I end up with them. Like my poor visually-impaired Lyra...

I have to admit I do love when g1 ponies are on the wrong card. Especially when it's the card for a whole other species.

She looks like one of those girls that uses white eyeliner on the lower lid to make their eyes appear bigger but it never actually works.


I like factory errors but I doubt that I'd go out of my way for one. I enjoy seeing photos of them though!

Errors are so interesting! But I'm not going to throw my money on them, not after I already completed a grail and spent a fortune on an UK hybrid princess pony.
I do have still managed to find one error pony in the wild, a G2 pony with a way too obviously double printed symbol.

Oh it's cute to see the baby Candys next to each other!

I don't really care much either way about factory errors, I wouldn't spend money on one of bigger well known ones. And knowing me I probably wouldn't even notice minor ones if I happened to pick one up haha

I like aesthetically appealing errors, like using a different color on accident  (i.e. reverse Gusty). So far, I only have one error on purpose, since the offcenter mane on my Birthday Pony was a coincidence I simply accept. I got Sunspot cuz she has silver in her mane and gold in her tail, but last night I noticed she has a minor symbol misprint that's kinda cute (the face is off center):

She cost just as much as one with gold and one with silver by the same seller.

Not MLP but my sister has a 1983 care bear plush with the wrong name on the tag. It was a pleasant surprise when she got it NIB and she wants to keep it forever.

i kinda love them. sometimes its really make a change - make the pony more "rare" if its a nice error.

i have a G4 pinki i adore with a missprint eye making her look a little bit like muffin
