I'm curious about something. Was Miss Painter only sold in the UK/Europe?

Yes. In fact, I am not convinced she was sold in the UK. I think she may only have been sold in parts of Europe...Moonbreeze may know for sure, but I don't remember ever seeing that set in the UK.

That said I've found a few here I didn't think we had (Water Lily, Rocky, Jazzy) so it may be distribution.

I have only ever seen her irl at ponycon, on a stall from a European seller ;)

Thank you for your help Taffeta. :)

Okie friends here's some concepts I've done.

Generational swap Petal Blossom, almost complete.

Generational swap Wing Song, needs their cutie marks.

Generational swap Sweetberry. I actually have a G3 base that I'm prepping.

This is Lullabye Moon, an OC based off of G3 So Soft Bright Night who resided in a local charity shop for a while. Needs her cutie mark. I have a Sky Skimmer that's due to become her.

And here's my proposed G2 Rainbowdash (Probably PastelDash tbh) using a non functioning Magic Motion Ivy (cheers to Moonbreeze for that recommendation)

Still need to make a Morning Glory gen swap, although idk how easy that'll be with the G3 cutie mark.

Any tips on how to open a Magic Motion with the leg/head action without damaging her? I want to reroot but my fingers are about to break trying to pry the head off.

That's the one in Ivy's pose? I did actually break one of those (and nearly my fingers).
So... warm water is the key.

The one on the far right is that MagicMotion pose.

The plug is glued into the body à la G4 so to say. I wriggled Sundance's out with warm water and a screwdriver (and stabbed myself  :cry: as noted before)

I'm actually working on a page about this on my website! Should be done by the end of the day :)
Apologies for the dumb question, but could you let me know which one out of these is similar to Royal Ladies Light Heart (one leg up, no leg movement, only spinning tail)? Do these share head/neck peg mold? Have you successfully reassembled (or tried doing it to) the ones you've taken apart?
I'm considering customising a double I have of Royal Ladies Light Heart, but I'm intimidated by probably not being able to reassemble her. I also don't think she is in bad enough condition to customise her, so I'm rather kinda trying to talk myself off  :P But then again, the pose is super cute - anyone has one with chopped off hair? That would solve part of my issues with the situation :lol:

I'm not sure. I do have a Tipsy Tulip bait somewhere, so I could check (when I can visit my parents' again). The point is with these that I'm not sure if you can get everything back in place and have the Magic Motion bit still working.

I'm curious about something. Was Miss Painter only sold in the UK/Europe?

Yes. In fact, I am not convinced she was sold in the UK. I think she may only have been sold in parts of Europe...Moonbreeze may know for sure, but I don't remember ever seeing that set in the UK.

That... might have been me :) As far as I know she's been mostly available in France. Perhaps Belgium and the Netherlands. But personally I haven't seen her on the shelves in my area, but she does pop up every now and then on fleamarkets and second hand sites.

@ Freezestime: Looking great! I actually really like G3 -> G2 Sweet Berry <3

So here's some pics I took a while ago of my in progress G2 customs.

These have been shonkily painted white, so I'll paint them again, sand them down then they're gonna be painted white again. I'll leave around the eye until the end, as to not ruin it early on.

An ex Pinkie Pie had chew marks around her snout and Sugar Belle had the magnet come out, so I just used some air dry clay to fill in the holes. The Sugar Belle will become a regular Mommy Bonheur, might dye her a bit green to get her colour closer. Both need the clay to be sanded down, painted over with white then figure out the correct colours for them.

Here's another lot, Including Lullabye Moon! I'm just not sure if I'll keep some of her pink hair or choose another pink, so she might be a rehair project.
Berry Bright will be a early model for a masculine mold, in which I might try again on another pony or cast that one. And I'll have one Sugar Belle with a regular nose.

Sky Skimmer will become Lady Rainbow, but only after I make a cast of her mold.
And both Sundance and Petal Blossom will be casted, although after that I have no clue who they'll be.

And an important part of Australian G2 history! It's a 1999 or 2000 (I need to check again) September Mr Toys Toyworld catalouge with Princess Crystal! This is one piece of evidence that supports my theorised time line! And better yet, it's from my town so there's a chance I can find old stock or find some ponies second hand! (it has the store it was taken from on the back)

@Moonbreeze - I am pretty sure I bought a G2 pony from you, but I think it was the Pony Business that had Miss Painter ;) It's a long time back now though...xD

Either way she was very pretty, and I have never had an opportunity to own her. Maybe if I'd managed to remember to bring the Euro cash I had left over from a French trip to that ponycon I might have been able to negotiate ;) Never mind. A future ponycon, if one should be able to happen again in the future.

Miss Painter is here! I thought I'd hafta learn to warm up to G2s in person, but I liked her as soon as I pulled her out of the package. Her hair is really nice, the weird orangey stripes, (which I presume is regrind) gives her extra personality. She is a painter, so her job will get a little messy. I really like her! :good:

The orange might be highlighter ink. Or maybe she decided she wanted a tattoo. But weirdly they suit her :D

She is so pretty. <3

Just a quick little side note- my husband bought Miss Painter, Miss Teacher and Miss Chef in Northern Ireland years ago.  It was a Stuart Miller store they came from. No music ponies, but they also had Springly and Springdy at that time.
