new release comic con twilight style mane 6 toy pack
« on: July 13, 2019, 03:07:37 PM »
So this is going on on instagram and mlpmerch
: https://www.mlpmerch.com/2019/07/hasbro-announces-my-little-pony-retro.html


So there is a 6 pack going to be available on 1 September for around 25 dollars on amazon.

it has the same style as the comic con twilight.

any thoughts?

I'm not sure if I like them, but for a good price I might buy them.

so what do you think?

At the moment I'm not sure how I feel about these. I kind of wish they were singles and not one big pack as I don't want to spend $50 for two of each pony (one for customizing and one to not customize).

They are an odd mix of G1, G3, and G4... and to add to that there is only two poses (rearing Pegasus body and walking Earth body) and two head types (open mouth Earth and close mouth Unicorn). It's a miss opportunity for them to do other poses, I've heard some say Fluttershy could be in the shy pose with wings and likewise I feel AJ could be in a trotting or rearing pose..
My DeviantArt, why not drop by and take a look!

OOOOOOOH I like.  Probably won't get, due to the snubbing that Canada gets with these releases, but none the less...

I've already stated in the twilight thread that I like the style over all. I'm always a fan of a variety of styles-- just because each style will appeal to someone different.

But also like I said in the other "what if" thread... I'm a bit meh on these just because they are mane 6 (because I don't find any of them visually appealing). With <25-30 ponies in my collection, I'm fairly picky about what I add to it. I would of added them in a heart beat a few years back, but not at this point.

I feel like most stuff (and Ragamuffin's excellent comparison images) are all already in the Twilight thread, though probably should be in this one. Maybe a kind mod will move the posts across and merge them together to this thread so the discussion is all in one place?

I like it and preordered it.  I want to show support to Hasbro for anything “in the general direction of retro” releases.

I know they're not, but man those look like dollars store G3 fakies to me.  Hard pass.

Nng, no :( I wish I could like them, but there's too much about their proportions/ flat looking design that doesn't sit well with me.

I guess I'm in the minority because I quite like them! Sad they didn't do true G1 designs and did more like a G3 thing, but still cute. :)

I actually love that they went with this style and not just because I don't like how g1 looks. It feels like it's paying homage to multiple generations, which appeals to me far more than slapping g4 colors on g1 molds and calling it "retro".

I like them overall but I agree there's something a little "off" about the eyes and neck area.

They are interesting. I agree, the neck doesn't look quite right. I'd like to keep them in box, I think they look great as a display!

I definitely understand people feeling they're a little 'off'. However, I feel like the con-exclusive retro Twilight felt more off and these look a better to me. I can't quite put my finger on the reason why. Nevertheless, I really would like to get these!

Looking at it, I think these 'flow' a lot better with the open mouth pose, thus Twilight Sparkle, Rarity, and the retro Twilight look more off than the others, IMO.
