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

I made this into my general brag thread now.

Gonna resume with HER MAJESTY PEARL that I got from Barnaclelady ^^
I was looking for her for ages and every time she was way too expensive.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

So now I finally have this mini grail of mine. So stoked!
She is a gorgeous pony. Her eyes are mesmerizing, they look kind of glazed over thanks to the pupil being lighter than the corona. Her hair color is also beautiful as it is a nice peachy orange with golden tinsel, making it look a bit like honey. Finally, her symbol is nautical and I love me some nautical themes.

Welcome to the herd, Pearl! :biggrin:

Private swap with Nemesis
« Reply #26 on: December 22, 2019, 09:34:00 PM »
Nemesis and I did a private Halloween swap and kinda, sorta this became my Christmas present since Nemesis had some troubles getting one of my most recent doll grails for me - CATRA (Dreamworks version) <3 :hug:
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
She also got me Freak Du Chic Clawdeen for my MH collection and Galadriel for my Funko collection. Simply amazing! :biggrin:

Furthermore, I got American candies (there was a full bag of Reese's but... yeah, my family and I had already destroyed them at this point, lol!), a cute Halloween-y baggy with adorable confetti/decor inside, stickers and a Pullip post-it block I probably won't use because I keep Pullip merch untouched XD

BIG THANKS to Nemesis for this sweet Christmas/Halloween box of surprises. I really loved doing this swap with you! And Catra... finally mine. I am super happy!

Ah, it seems to have been a great swap! I like halloween-themed stuff all year round, so such a box of goodies arriving around Christmas wouldn't bother me at all ^^
That Clawdeen is gorgeous! And congrats on Catra - what a great timing for a grail doll to arrive! :cool:
