Wow, nice finds :D Congrats! Gotta say I love those Grand Champions in particular!

And yeap, people insisting that their ponies are original, hard to find, pricey ponies are an interesting kind of persistent :P Especially when it's covered in pen marks and has been chewed on.

Here's how Leviathan cleaned up! I made him a new blanket and gave him a ribbon:

And here is my yellow Lucky with all his mane combed out. He looks really 80s :P

Thanks ^.^
I have two more GCs on their way, so I might make a Grand Champions thread. I guess the old one is dead.

They look great!!!  :biggrin:

Thanks! I am having a lot of fun cleaning.
Here are the finished MLPs:

I have plans for Sweetberry. She'll get a partial rehair in deep red.
And the other two will be sold. They cleaned up nicely and have great hair!

Congrats on the awesome finds! They cleaned up really well too, I love the after pics :) I can see why you love the GC horses, I also think their shapes are really beautiful (and not unnaturally skinny like many equine toys nowadays).

I remember seeing Lucky in a catalogue as a child, and wanting him badly, he looked so cool on promo pics with all the tack! I personally think the yellowed colour suits his colouring pretty well, but if you don't want to keep him like this (nor repaint him), de-yellowing might also be an option. I've heard about this method awhile ago, but never tried it out until about 2 weeks ago - Requiemart's great recent tutorial (link) has helped me a lot, and I'm surprised by how well it worked on a very badly sunburnt/yellowed hard plastic doll I tried it out on.

Thank you so much, Loona! I'll look into this :)
Yeah, when I found out it was Lucky I became hesistant about repainting. I'll see how I can help him. His mane is perfect and there is no frizz so it would make sense to try and restore him to my best abilities.

The people I really dislike are the ones who ask 15€ for a ratty, incomplete, almost broken MH doll and the excuse is always the same: "I paid 30€ for this doll when it was new!" Yeah... but now it isn't new anymore :lol:


Like the people who go, "They sell for £40 on ebay."

Well go sell it there then. Not at the carboot sale/flea market where people aren't ebay bidding. Or stupid.

...Back on topic.

Congrats on your finds :D Especially Feather May. I don't know anything about GC but it sounds like you picked up a couple of nice ones there as well :D
