I really want to like these but they just don't do it for me.  Somehow the balance between the more "chibi" elements and the more realistic ones has plunged these toys right into the uncanny valley for me.

I don't  see how they're even remotely chibi? They lack the huge bobble heads, their eyes no longer take up 60% of their faces, their legs are better proportioned and have knees and hocks, their bodies are larger and rounder instead of tiny and wonky.

Its just that the necks and chests are all wrong and they lack eye sockets. But it looks like some of the moulds have the suggestion of cheek bones again.
I mean they aren't chibi like G4s are, but they still have slightly chibi looking heads to me.  What I'm trying to say is that slapping a sliiiightly too large head with sliiiightly too large eyes on that body creeps me out. :lol:

 Their heads are a little big, but that doesn't mean they're chibi, it just means that Hasbro needs to tweak the proportions a bit better.

I like the idea a lot and the symbol redesigns are nice (except rainbow, that looks like a fakie) but they look to much like g3 fakies to me.

Looks exactly like G1 Mountain Boy Lightnings Symbol?

Yeah, I noticed the RD/Lightning thing too! I thought that was a really nice touch. Someone definitely paid extra attention to getting that detail right.

Well I currently have them on my amazon wish list, hoping maybe they will go on sale at some point but I doubt it lol
Looking at the larger image I don't like how the hair doesn't go further down, you can tell they were trying to mix at least 3 generations in one here.

First the wings are G1, that's a given
The bodies for the winged ponies are supposed to mimic the Truly Pose from G1
The bodies for the earth/unicorn look like they mimic the Valenshy Pose from G3 (at least that's what it looks like to me)
The heads look like a mash-up of G3 and the new G4 heads... muzzle/face is G3 while the rest of the head mimics G4 in how rounded it is

If I managed to get doubles of these well we know what I'm doing eventually lol
My DeviantArt, why not drop by and take a look!
