G2 experts, please help me with this Baby Flitter
« on: January 12, 2019, 08:12:08 PM »
Calling G2 experts: I found this Baby Flitter last summer on a flea market (in South-Eastern Hungary, but knowing that flea market, chances of her coming from abroad - Germany, Romania or even the UK - are possible), and at first I had a little trouble identifying her because of her unusually-coloured tail. I first suspected the tail is a replacement, as it is rather thin, and its placement is also quite rough, but it seems to be firmly in place (I tugged on it, but did not manage to pull it out), its quality matches pony hair I know, and the way it curls also looks original. Do you have any thoughts on what might have happened to her? Maybe a factory mix-up?

Oh cool!

The tailhole looks a bit weird. Maybe she came without a tail and someone rerooted it?
Or, she's a factory error :)

That is so odd! My best guess is she's a factory error.

Thanks for the replies!

I'm more and more leaning towards factory error too. I mean... The tail hole looks like it wasn't properly punched out. If it ever contained a proper tail, IMO it wouldn't look like this, not even if the tail was later removed. The hole should be bigger, it should retain its proper shape. And if someone rerooted the tail later, if they were knowledgeable enough to use what seems like official pony-quality hair, and even cut and style it at a regular tail length and curl, why would they do such a bad job at the amount of hair used, or with the punching of the hole? Maybe this little guy was the last on the line before the machine switched to produce another pony, and she accidentally got someone else's tail? But whose? I don't know of any G2 baby who has a tail in this colour...

ETA: G2s too often come without eye gems, but given the above, it also makes me wonder if this one ever had them, and they both fell out, or if they weren't added either.

G2 heads turn! Adults do at least (aside from a select number of Magic Motion ones), I'm fairly certain babies do too, though I don't have any babies myself.

I have a few G2 babies, and I can confirm that their heads do turn - this one's also does :)

Sweet Snowflake's tail is red/green mixed:
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I don't think this Flitter has a SS tail, even aside from the lack of green, it looks too bright red to be hers.

I do not own the Christmas baby, but judging by the picture Carrehz has posted, she has a similar, richer, and a bit darker red in her tail (and mane) as the (also pictured) G1 Christmas pony, whom I do own. This Flitter's tail is lighter and brighter than that - it is very close to Monster High Venus' (old, pre-reboot kanekalon versions) uv pink, "almost red, but still pink" hair. I do not own, nor have I ever seen Sugarberry in real life, but based on pictures I always imagined her hair to be this colour, too.
(I am happy to take comparison pictures with Venus and the G1 Christmas pony, if that helps)

Hrm, ok, I can never remember the colours, so guess that's out.

I would agree from the photo the colour looks more like Cherry Treats or Strawberry Fair/Sugarberry but that doesn't entirely help for G2 pony production. It is a weird issue because as the OP says, it doesn't look like a properly punched hole to begin with either. Very odd...
