im not sure how to answer cause its a tricki question- playset, mane 6 ponies... i dont know + the fact the G4 quailty is just horrible and it doesnt hold itself after years like previues line- ive seeng g4 get discolored after one year... so

but for your direct question about Star Swirl- she will be more n more expensive over the years- im really sad i didnt bought her 10 years ago i belive she will be among the mimics of this generation- g4 selected ponies and charcter especialy those who were limited realese will never become cheaper and every day goes by they will just become more n more expensive

just like other ponies from difrent lines so
if you find a good deal on her i can advise to snag her up...

xoxo

I’m really curious about which specific G4s you’ve seen with discoloration... It’s a concerning issue, given the very young age of these toys. :(

I recently sorted some of my collection, and discovered that a Twilight Sparkle light-up nightlight figurine had developed very bad head discoloration. It was evenly discolored over the entire head, so I don’t think it was from sun exposure... And she had been sitting on my desk in a room with the blinds drawn for the past several years. I was very fond of that figure, so I’m pretty unhappy about it. :( I have yet to see an actual brushable with discoloration in my collection... but now I’m worried. T_T

In any case... If G4s prove to have a shorter longevity as toys or collectibles, I could see that negatively impacting their value hugely. If we, as collectors, are seeing them deteriorate in our care... I can only imagine what actual, played-with ponies are going to look like in a decade or so.

I've got a few early brushables that had their heads discolor. It seems to mainly happen with pink ones.

I have these and they don't have this problem. Only my originals that came with a bad head body mismatch to begin with.

And mine were stored in horrible conditions and are still fine.

Feathermay is another one that often has mismatch. I've had her from new and I've seen her in package with it as well...

discolouration is definitely a problem with the early brushables, my feathermay has been discoloured ever since i got her (she was a charity shop find) and poor diamond rose has gotten mismatched over the years too -_-

I don't remember what a lot of my G4s look like, but I definitely should check out my Feathermay...

The ponies I do remember I don't think have had any discolouration.

It's probably not discoloration on Feathermay.   Most of them had really evident head-body color differences from Day One.  (A lot of early G4s had this issue, but she was probably the worst for it.) 

Basically, the early G4s have bodies made of harder plastic and heads made of a squishier plastic.  Being two different kinds of plastic made it hard for Hasbro to color-match the two.

all the fandom merch and general STUFF, it'll fall to the wayside and only a niche market will still collect.  do you want to buy a $1000 minky life-size plush of someone else's G4 fursona?

This had me cackle! But you are right, that kind of stuff mostly has sentimental value and nothing more. Unless you find a person who really falls in love with your OCs design and is willing to adopt it.

I will say, tho, the people who made all these plushes deserve credit. They made them look so much better than anything Hasbro officially made, so I guess the people who commissioned in-show characters could resell for a good price.
