I bought many ponies but fortunately none so far have made me regret getting them.
I'm pleasantly surprised mostly. I didn't know I would like the second wave of the g1 rainbow ponies that much (halfway there :)) and I keep reaching for lemon drop.
For my g4 ponies I'm mostly disappointed in the hair quality, but not in the pony in general. Plus blind bag doubles, but I customize those.

edit: I once bought a gorjuss ruby doll but I haven't been able to bond with her yet, thinking of maybe selling her..

So how about you? Ever been pleasantly surprised? Deeply regretted buying somepony? If so, who was it?

Please tell me.

Cheers,

Luke

There's a few ponies I've felt didn't quite fit into my collection, but only after a few years, and none that I've truly regretted despite no longer liking them as much.

However I did buy a Peter Stone, Little Anthony, impulsively while I was very sick with the flu and almost immediately after unwrapping it I realised I didn't love it as much as I'd hoped (I nicknamed him Swiss Cheese lol). I ended up trading it for two Breyer within a month, don't love them either but I like them better at least.

I wouldn't say regret. I suppose my example would be years ago, when I was trying to get MOC versions of my childhood ponies (which I still am), I bought a MOC "Sugarberry" - ie on US card. And I had her for a good few years, but I could not accept her as the pony I grew up with, because the card was different and the name was wrong. So I ended up selling her maybe ten years ago. No idea where she is now, never regretted it.

A year or two ago I stumbled on a UK carded "Strawberry Fair" and somehow managed to win her for a very reasonable price. I guess the card didn't matter to the other bidders as much as it did to me (since the US carded one is quite cheap, her price on UK card didn't skyrocket).

So now I have the pony from my childhood memory, with the right card and the right name. And "Sugarberry" is out there somewhere being appreciated much more than I could have done.

I don't have a photo of my original to hand, though I do have some pictures of US carded ponies I later sold somewhere at home (on actual photos. Yes, that old, that they're actual processed photos O.O not digital ones). But I figure everyone knows the US card for this set, they're quite common - it's white.

And this is the more recent replacement :)

There are a couple of ponies I've got in lots that I don't feel fit with my collection, but none that I've purposefully bought. I always plan which ponies I'm going to buy reallly carefully for this reason

Never had any where I ended up liking them less, but I've definitely had instances of buying ponies I felt more neutral about and ended up absolutely adoring them. G3 Wysteria for example, I had seen her countless times through photos online and thought she was cute, and when I ended up getting her for a few bucks at the antique mall I totally fell in love with her color scheme seeing it in person. This has happened with a few ponies.

SS Magic Star, for a swap. I regretted not keeping her myself.

Baby Brothers. I don't like how they look in photos, as much as I love the Big Brothers, but when I got Baby Leaper for Christmas, I realized how adorable he was in person. I'd though my sister's Baby Paws was just an outlier because I was used to him.

Yeah, I don't care too much for the baby brother pose with hooves actually? Looks weird to me.
Shoreline I just got recently to complete my Sunshine Ponies (I gotta clean her then I'll make a brag post hehe) and I delayed getting her because she just reminded me too much of Merriweather. Now that I have her she is absolutely charming in her own way.

Taffeta, I love your MOC Strawberry Fair. :lovey: *grabby hands*


For me it was Beachball. In pictures she didn’t appeal to me but when I bought one for a friend I hard a hard time sending her to her new home. Last year I was able to get a Beachball. :)

My first Spanish pony... mind you, I love walking pose, but Posey had some serious Linda Blair issues... (loose head to neckline and just not proportionate at all.) You could gently move her and her head would spin. Only Nirvana I have ever parted with. Other than her, I like all my ponies, even though many are flawed.

I mainly seem to like them more after I get a pony. I dont have any regrets or I try to stay with that frame in mind. :)

Honestly, I'd have to say Sweet Scoops.  I bought her years ago, and actually for a reasonable price compared to now (I want to say I got her for $175).  I really didn't like her as much as I thought I would and sold her pretty quickly.  Didn't really regret it, except to think if I'd kept her a few years, I could've sold her for more. :)
Thanks to Whippetluv for my awsome persona pony!!

Sometimes I have to see the pony in person before I’m like wow that’s a really pretty pony. I recently added Sweet Tooth and she wasn’t one that I specifically sought out. I happened to see her at a convention and really liked her color combination and of course the pose, too!  This has happened with quite a few that I under-appreciated until I saw them.

I've never really had a pony that I've liked less, but there have been a few that have grown on me :)

I found Forget Me Not at a thrift store and almost didn't buy her because she was wingless (what was I thinking, G1s are so rare where I live!) but I ended up getting her. At first, I didn't like her expression, but with her other flutters, she looks so pretty.

Baby Lickety Split was one of my first ponies when I started collecting. I found her at an antique mall, and, though her eyes creeped me out a little, she was a G1, so I got her :) She eventually grew on me and is now sporting a tutu on my shelf.
