I’m not really sure this is only a retro gimmick of M6, or actually new molds for MLP. I like them only because they are more MLP than what we have seen lately- but to me they don’t look like they have been made with the same attention to detail as G1 (and G2/G3). I wouldn’t buy them. And I honestly can’t understand why Hasbro seem to hold on to M6 like they are the only characters that count. Please Hasbro- let the M6 go! If this truly are a new story and new personalities it just seems cheap and re-used to me to keep the same character designs. It can’t be that difficult for them to make other designs...

I love the artwork though!!

To those like me who are saying the neck is wonky, I've found their source of inspiration for the molds. :lol:

Hasbro updated the official MLP site and added the Mane 6 in the retro style, but at what cost?! Poor AJ doesn't have a neck!

First, they had no muzzles, now they have no necks. What is it with Hasbro and omitting vital body parts? Or hiring artists who can't draw them either? Are necks, muzzles and noses that pricy to animate? They do this with TFs too. So, when are we gonna get our neckless, noseless, bobblehead G.I. Joes Hasbroken?

(I'm being sarcastic, please don't make those.)

This bugged me too when I saw it. :lol:

I mean come on Hasbro, they were just the first six ponies that released, they were never main or core characters of any sort.

I think the problem with this particular illustration, is that nobody DREW any of the ponies.  They used existing art that they modified.

And here, iinstead of using a graphic with the pony already pointing the right way- they took a picture of the pony with her head pointed toward her flank, and probably used their art program to "turn" the head-  only they didn't add more neck and it looks weird. 

They should have just used a picture of her pointing the RIGHT way, but maybe they couldn't find one...

Also maybe they are using G3 art?  They should have used legit G1 art but then maybe it wouldn't match the ponies (who are more G1/G3 cross-breeds)

They are using and/or modifying the retro vectors.

u_u I don't have enough time to see what that might be based off of..

Okay as I suspected the oddness of the AJ vector is because she is a hack-job of other vectors.

Specifically- they just took Twilight snipped off her horn and wings, added a different tail and "turned" her head

They should have modified the Dash vector who looks slightly better

All in all though, I do still like the set and the box and wish I could see all angles of it  :biggrin:

I'm sorry, but I see those images - esp Fluttershy, and all I can think of is this dance. Especially since they're all in basically the same pose...

That's a whole different kind of retro...

Whoa, did someone say tatos? I'm hungry! anywhooooo... Did you see the size of that fly that just went by?
..............................
I am somewhat OK with this restyling. I'll def grab a Blue Belle for my army if a core group based on G1 is released (which seems to be the trend), but the rest not so much. Just don't have the gotta have em all mentality unless it's G1's.

G4's for sale!

Hmm... I'm not sure. They looks interesting, but something wrong (for new gen). I don't know what.
