As someone who has sold and wants to restart collecting - where are you in your collecting life?

It's never ending for me! I don't really have any concrete goals in collecting ponies. I mean sure, there's some specific sets I definitely want to complete, and various other ponies actively on my wishlist, but I always enjoy adding new ponies in general to my collection, I'm not really the sort to ever pass up on a pony I find in the wild or obtain in a lot, as long as I don't already have it. The only rule in my collection is no exact duplicates, so unless I somehow magically end up with every pony and piece of pony merchandise, it's never truly over. :lol:

I'm still a very, very long way to go.

Since I've yet to win the lottery for all the Nirvana ponies I want... it's a long way off :lol:

My "domestic" collection is pretty close to being finished though. I have every orange G3, nearly every G2 and most US/Uk orange ponies. Not bad for nearly 10 years of collecting so far.

I'm done collecting. Unless G5 really grabs me or in the very unlikely event that something in the final days of G4 is released that I find very special, I have no plans for more pony. I started collecting with G4 and have now sold off my once grand collection of hundreds of ponies, much to my own disbelief some days given how much they once meant to me. I only kept 4 ponies. In a kind of weird way I feel that collecting MLP was there for me at a time when I needed it, but I eventually reached a point where I didn't anymore. I'm still hanging in the community a little, watching FiM until it's over and waiting to see what G5 brings out of curiosity but I don't really see myself rebounding.

What's making you want to re-start, Loa?

I'm done with some primary goals, like getting all the flutters and completing certain sets. Now I'm just buying those I stumble across that I feel are pretty. I don't want too many ponies as I don't want them standing to close to each other. I like seeing each and every one with their symbols. If ever I moved to some other place where I could fit another shelf in the ponyroom I think the collecting would increase a lot.

This is how I've been feeling lately!

I never stopped collecting or got rid of everything, just a bit of a downsize recently, but it got put on the back burner because so much else was going on. I didn't have money for ponies and was prioritizing my dolls when I could afford new stuff. But I miss getting new ponies and now that I've got the freedom to be myself, I'm gonna get back into it. I miss getting new ponies and having cute colorful horses around haha. It just has to wait until I can get some Billys!

At this point I don't know what "complete" looks like for me, but I don't think I'm close! Not with the Basic Fun repros, HQG1Cs, and all the fun retro merch that's been coming out.

I think I'm going to start small. Aim for the Petites & Charms. I have always loved these and never finished them.

I’m tantalisingly close! It’s the htf ponies I’m struggling to get for a decent price...Diamond Dreams, tropical baby ponies etc being some of them...tying to find them in lots to offset some of the cost is haaard! There’s only certain sets I’m interested in collection, I’m not a ‘gotta catch ‘em all’ collector though, which makes things easier!

I am nowhere near completing any of my collections, I'm still needing a whole bunch of Barbie, MH, MLP, Smooshy Mooshy, Toy Story, Num Noms, Polly Pocket, Licca, Sailor Moon, One Piece, Sims 1, Sims 2 and probably some more I'm forgetting.

I discovered that I don't actually want too big a collection: too many ponies makes me feel a bit overwhelmed and as if I can't appreciate them individually. I had to downsize my Monster High collection for the same reason. So now I have a grand total of 130 ponies, mostly G1 but representatives of other gens too, plus a couple of fakies, and I'm happy with that. The last pony I bought was Mexican Baby Nibbles back in February. I don't plan to buy any more but I might if I see something really special or find something awesome in the wild. I'm definitely still into ponies and regularly play with my favourites, do their hair etc.

I have most of the U.S. ponies I want.  I still need Cha Cha, Oakley, the kangaroo, MO birthday babies, a couple birthflowers, a few seaponies, and (will probably never happen) MO Sweet Scoops and mom and baby.  Could use Rapunzel, but again, probably not going to happen and I'm not a fan of her anyway.
I don't collect sweetheart sisters, second set princess ponies, secret compartment ponies and a couple other weird ones.
I have a decent amount of ponies from overseas.  But just individual ponies, not nirvanas.  I don't like having duplicates/variants, nor would I have the space.
