A new menber here
« on: July 16, 2019, 10:36:52 AM »
My focus is on the G1 generation and I have loved My Little Pony all my life. Sadly I was born too late to ever get any first hand from a store, everyone I own are second-handed. That is of course fin to me, but that may also be the reason I have this huge interest in restoration of them, it goes hand in hand.

I have not considered using the net for this interest until quite recently. In that way I am a late bloomer :biggrin:

I do not know why I am a collector, I just get so happy when I find one, I must buy it. And I watched the movie (rented the 1986 version) when I was very little and after that I was searching for it my entire childhood :shocked:. The movie came out new edition 2004. Now I finally have the movie and television series and I have come to realize it is the ponies from the movie and television series I want most to add to my collection.

I have 86 ponies I plan to keep, I have a list of at least 7 I am missing and still searching for, and 53 doublets and ponies I plan to sell in the near future, but first I need to fix them up to look their best. And that is where you come in... :) I hope this is going to be a pleasant experience for everyone.

Welcome! I'm in the same boat as you, born too late for G1 but loved them since childhood <3 I'm so glad you found the Arena!

Oooh sounds like a lovely collection so far! Do you like to hunt for yours at thrift stores, yard sales, etc. or do you prefer to buy them online/from other collectors? I very much look forward to seeing your collection and your sales! I hope you enjoy your time here ^u^

Hi there, nice to meet you! :)

Identifying my G1 ponies was the reason I first started to go online back in 1999! So, I guess they are responsible for introducing me to the internet. ^-^

Before got the idea to look for ponies on the net, thrift stores and yard sales was my only options. Sadly Sweden is a small country and I am under the impression My little pony never was very popular here.  So the pace of finding ponies was maybe one a year. My collection never really start to grow until internet opened up as a alternative market, maybe like four years ago. I use Ebay and a Swedish site called Tradera today.

Welcome to the Arena! We have a few Swedish collectors - maybe they will pop in and give you some tips on any places that are particularly good for pony hunting. It's great to have another G1 collector and lovely to see younger collectors joining us who didn't necessarily grow up with the original ponies!

Nice to meet you, Auroralight! Welcome!

Sounds like you have some well-defined goals for your collecting! The Arena is certainly a great place to sell your doubles and find some cleaning and restoration tips. Have fun! :good:
