OMGS that is freaking cute! My only gripe is that RD should be an Earth Pony.

Hmmm

I don't wanna be that person but I'm a bit bummed to see m6. 😢

I hope people will make customs out of these cuties.

ETA: I think this deserves its own thread?

I'm tired of them too, but they look much better this way. They look like Ponies as they should. I hafta have it, and I NEVER say that about M6 crap. I'd love to get Lyra, Luna, Seaswirl, Sunset Shimmer and Starlight Glimmer in these moulds too.

I guess I could give Pinkie Pie and AJ away.

I honestly looked at it and felt confused.

I would like to see g1 versions of the m6 and g4 versions of theirr g1 antecedents but...

Not sure what that is.

For a parent company to be upstaged by a franchised producer like bf is a bit sad as regards poses but...

Those are not g1 or g4. I don't really know what they are or how I feel seeing them.  I do like the g1 Twilight Sparkle on the box though.

I think she means that Basic Fun is upstaging Hasbro with their products in terms of looks and quality.

I'm still confused. I don't know what basic fun has to do with these.

Is she saying these look cheap?

You'll hafta ask her. ;)

Basic Fun is doing a stellar job on there repros. I'm unsure how nice the plastic will be on these girls, since it can be hard to tell from pictures, but we can all agree that Hasbro tanked hard on the quality of the current gen. The hair looks a bit cheap though.

Rereading it I think it concerns poses..

$4.16 per pony vs $10.. and the fact they are non static poses, I'm cool with it. If there more then 6 ponies I'm sure there would be even more poses.

I don't think I said anything confusing or in need of translation but no...I said bf do a better job than hasbro of replicating g1 poses...thus upstaging the mothership.

I didn't say anything about cheap...nor did I say these were bf o.o.

I guess I was confused by the comparison. Since there had been a discussion of the mold already. I thought there was a discussion this wasn't a direct 1:1 copy.

Maybe I'm easily confused lol.

I don't see anything wrong with the poses. The reading one reminds me of Truly.

I'm not really complaining about the poses. But yeah, it goes back to that discussion where I don't think they are G1 poses. And that wouldn't really matter except this is clearly trying to go for some kind of G1 connection.

To expand a little though I guess what I don't understand, especially with your price comparison, is that Hasbro went to the trouble of making these poses from scratch for this project, which must have cost a certain amount to do. So I wonder if they can't use the ones BF are using or don't want to for some reason (bearing in mind there's also the little Firefly and Glory floating around, and I know Firefly was unpopular but Glory was a pretty good miniature).

I am still not sure what these want to be, honestly - but what is interesting to me is that now after so much time, Hasbro are wanting in on the G1 connection thing.

When I wrote to Hasbro UK last year about the retros I got a sniffy reply saying it was nothing to do with them and that I should contact the company directly (Ie Basic Fun). And yet now...this?

I think several people have wanted some kind of G1/G4 crossover a lot earlier than the end of the line. So even though it's a bit off the wall, LAW's suggestion about 'G5' might not be miles away. At the very least this looks like some kind of experiment by Hasbro...

But they're not G1 poses. So I am wondering who this set is aimed at. Us...? The bronies? Kids? Any ideas?

I honestly feel like Hasbro would've had a better response if they had done the six G1 ponies in G4 poses years ago. Of course AJ would basically be selling the same pony, but they're used to that...so..?

I like the heads on the Pegasus and Earth ponies better. Fluttershy in particular looks very sweet and gentle.

The rearing poses remind me of a cross between the Firefly and Ice Skater posed ponies. I even like Twilight Sparkle and she's made me soooo mad with how often she's been packed in against my will.
