Rare ponies on eBay?
« on: March 06, 2019, 05:59:36 AM »
Hi friends!

I was browsing eBay again and saw someone listed a MIB Sweet Scoops, knowing that it's rare I click on it to view it.

This person seems to have a outback garage of MIB G1 toys.

And while I can't really afford much of them, I wanted to share this find with you guys incase you need something that they have!

Their name is "family-love-peace-happiness.priceless" if this isn't allowed, let me know and I will pull it down/edit it.

Ooh I saw that listing, apparently it was a friend of hers who bought a storage unit and it happened to have all these G1 MOC/MIB ponies!

What are the odds?!

 :dropjaw: oh my gosh, it’s like a museum! I really really wish that collection could stay together. what an incredible bundle of history! I doubt we’ll ever see a collection quite like that again. If I won the lottery I’d take them all in!

At the same time it makes me kinda sad, like why was the unit abandoned in the first place? :( It seems clear that this was a passionate pony lover... I hope that they’re okay and it’s nothing too sad!

Oh, this hurt my heart to see... :sad: To think of all the time and money and care put into that collection. Lost to time, like tears in rain... :cloud: I can only imagine what could have befallen the original owner to have their belongings sold off in such a callous way. I hope having to forfeit their storage unit didn't cause them any more pain.

I suppose one can take comfort in the fact that the ponies are making their way back into collector hands instead of ending up in a landfill. I've told my family that when I die they can take my entire collection to the thrift store, so maybe someday my ultimate misfortune will be someone else's super amazing miracle.

yeah with a large MOC collection like that, the community probably KNOWS the collector... which is sad.
Or it's Lexi's collection and we can be happy the ponies are liberated!  ;)

Wow!  :dropjaw: :dropjaw:  So many beautiful MOC/MIB G1 ponies  I also wonder how the original owner lost possession of the storage unit as it looks like whoever the original owner was took great care to store them carefully.


It looks like there are a lot of things that we don't see MOC/MIB often. Do I see Greek MOCs also?

I dont think they were a passionate collector.  I dont know the story either but the ponies were all found just in giant boxes, not all neat and on display like that.

Maybe failed toystore? Bought some boxes from a defunct Toys r us warehouse? Maybe leftover stock? Direct from the factory? There's so many possibilities!

I haven't been active in the community for awhile now, but a friend of mine messaged me with the story about this and my mind is absolutely BLOWN!!! We're each hoping that a MOC of our favorites ends up showing up at some point, because I will claw my way through the fray to get my hands on a MOC SS Twilight!! I'm also drooling like crazy over the pictures of the MIB Dream Beauties, among others. Just...WOW... :shocked:

I'll be keeping a close eye on them so if I find a MOC SS Twilight, I'll let you know!
