I hope they reproduce every G1 ever made, domestically and internationally. Haha, I can dream. XD But I also hope they continue to innovate and release new MLP stuff as well (G1 and otherwise). There’s room for everybody. :)

I really really really really hope this train-ride with Basic Fun lasts long enough for us to get so soft ponies pleeeaaase!  Most of the other ponies (with some exceptions ie Mimic) are not terribly hard to get but a brand new from package clean so soft pony !!!!  IMAGINE!!!!!  :shocked: :frolic: :frolic: :frolic: :yippee:

I hope to see many, many more! I’m buying for my nieces to play with as 30
year old plastic = “not for kids”. In addition, I’m not a fan of letting kids play with my “main” collection of mostly childhood ponies...

But I did buy the ST AJ although I had to have her shipped from US. I would love to see some more “new” G1s but in the “old” style.

YES! I really hope either BF or Hasbro will eventually try something HQG1C-esque, and make new characters... ST AJ is an awesome first step towards that. :)

I hope for this too, but it worries me given the AJ precedent that they won't make it out of the US. It bothers me that the international market might get ridden over roughshod. I admit a personal issue with this because right now the exchange rate is weak and I don't have a lot of money - and I shouldn't complain given that the UK has been quite spoiled compared with a lot of Europe and other places, but still. I did hope we wouldn't get regional exclusives when BF decided to bring both rainbows and CP ponies out in multiple places. ST AJ has rather broken that hope.

I really would like to see Rainbow Curl and Sweetheart Sister reprints!

They're years later, so I imagine it probably won't happen, but I can dream, right? (Probably shouldn't  :sad: )

Dream on, write to Basic Fun, buy the other retros to add to their sales. It could happen!

Personally, I would freak out if I could have a 15€ Mimic in perfect condition and I'd go to great lenghts to get one. I love green ponies and sadly Mimic is so hyped and expensive I don't see myself ever owning an original one.

I would love a minty Mimic too! I love the 30+ year old ponies from my childhood collection.  But I don't really care to pay high prices for used ponies. They are getting crazy expensive.

-shrug- I guess I don't see why it needs to be an either/or. Give us repros, but give us new stuff too - that what I say :)

This!

And while they're at it, give us a proper Paradise -.-

BUT first, increase distribution. Pony fandom is not globally exclusive. There are fans in a lot of countries where ponies were really popular in the eighties that haven't had these in stores at all, and that makes no sense.

Ponies are for everyone. No exclusives, and no exclusions.

No. :O)

I guess I phrased that badly, but I meant the Paradise they promised us in the catalogue as a prototype that never happened. SS Paradise is part of the SS set. This Paradise was meant to come with the PE.

And by us I meant the UK. Because this meant we didn't get Paradise at all.

I had that feeling...

I would cry if there was a paradise released with no flock. It would feel like the most disappointing thing in the world to have your favorite character not be released without it's gimmick that you loved it so much for.

Paradise was one of my favourite characters growing up, too.  I used to write stories about her.

Even though she was promoted in pamphlets and the fact file, ultimately she didn't exist.

I have the Brazilian one, that's as close as it gets, but it won't ever be the same.

Although I would feel similarly crushed to see Princess Pearl in stores here as Tiffany with a bushwoolie, so I get what you're saying about a remake missing key aspects that made it what you loved growing up. I would also feel conflicted to see SS Shady or Magic Star here since Shady was a favourite childhood pony of mine and Magic Star another that I wrote stories about.

But the thing with Paradise is basically that she doesn't exist. And that's just Hasbro being mean again to the kids in the UK.

But all of that is different then -- let's create a pony that maybe a handful of kids hoped for because they saw it in an advertisement...

vs 1000s of kids had a cherished toy that they bonded with and had fond memories.

Sigh.

Not everything has to be a debate you know? I was just expressing my personal feelings, you're entitled to yours as well. It probably won't happen because BF is only doing the US line anyway, so there's no reason to be so worried about it.

 A regular Paradise, Ribbon and Lofty would be high up on my remake wishlist. Some people want Mimic. I want to see Hasbro UK's holes filled, and that includes those three :)
