I keep wondering if Hasbro finally realizes we're potential cash cows for G1 stuff but they have licensed out G1 style ponies to Basic Fun so now Hasbro is stuck to come up with these "retro" Frankenponies.     I do like them but they are far from true G1.

I was already wary about that video and now that I've read that quote...  :shocked: what ARE they doing?!

Oh, that's an interesting thought - I wonder if that's what's going on? Some weird legal thing that actually prevents Hasbro from doing proper repros? Maybe it'd be seen as competition or something? Hmmmm.

ok wait what? ok my head is in a spin,  awesome news to see something new, wow Amazon exclusive, i never knew they did exclusives, which is good news cos they will ship these to New Zealand. but that hair quality look sketchy so might wait for someone to review them first .
but the poses especially the raring peg pose is from a remco rearing fakie and remco fakie wings.

anyways who's the toy company making these?

I pre-ordered the Mane 6 set. I do like the style... it reminds me more of the G1 animation than anything they did toy-wise. I still wouldn’t mind if this became the new direction of G5. It would at least be better than more of the 3.5/4 style. However, the mold is once again being marketed as “retro!”, so I doubt it will become the new look for MLP.

Well, if Hasbro started making accurate G1 repros using original molds, that would definitely be direct competition with Basic Fun. I highly suspect something in the licensing agreement prevents that from happening until BF’s contract is up.

Hasbro themselves. Amazon has had G4 exclusives before, like the glittery FS Sea Pony Pinkie Pie.

Hasbro is making these.


This is an unpopular opinion but, they look like My Little Pony again and that's why I like them.

yeah i reckon so too. more then last gen.  they have a funny little retro quirkiness to them.
maybe this is hasbro testing to see if these are going to be popular and then decide on G5 designs

I think that's pretty likely, since it would be a bit pointless to sink all that effort into a project and then have the mothership suddenly decide to compete with them. But Hasbro really weren't interested in G1 this time last year, or the retros. And they've steered clear of directly acknowledging G1 for ages. So now it's a bit awkward that they're trying.

I don't mind these existing, but Hasbro need to realise we realise they're not going to be thought of as G1.

I like the basic fun but I want new products too. I don't want all repro stuff.  I hope G5 is cute and not retro.

If that youtube is truly official then we have to accept Hasbro okayed it.
I usually don't mind fans making these kinds of videos because I myself am guilty of making fun of what I enjoy.
But some of these blurps were going too far.

I think you summed up everything in that assessment.

This is why it feels like something made by a brony to mock G1 - laughing at not laughing with - if that makes sense. We've all had discussions making fun of things from G1 - names, poses, animation, comic stories with acid trips...etc...but there's a difference between laughing with and accepting the silly and laughing at and making fun of it.

Also the nuances bothered me too. It's so very brony (no offence to non crazy bronies) in its approach.

I guess someone at Hasbro found it funny, or maybe a bit of resentment coming out at the popularity of G1 stuff right now? So hard to tell since it's the only thing on the channel remotely like that...

I also hope that if we have a G5 release, it's not based on older characters from any gen but is it's own thing. But I don't know if Hasbro are still capable of that...:/ At least, I'm sure as a company they are, but whether right now they have the right design people or approach to do it is another matter. I feel like they could do with some freshening up in that dept to give a brand new perspective. Especially if they want to challenge and rival the G4 phenomenon. They should learn from MH that slight reboots of popular but dying franchises don't end well...

Personally I'd like to see them take a pony break and then if they wanted to do another gen, come back with something awesome and completely new in a few years time. But I feel rather more like we're going to see the franchise run into the ground and destroyed instead by the search for a quick profit.
