My Retro G1 FIM Ponies finally arrived
« on: August 28, 2019, 09:48:11 PM »
I pre ordered the set two months ago and nearly forgot about it till it came. I was actually waiting for my other packages which is my Prismacolor Cool Grey Marker set and Copic Skin Tones Marker set as it arrives today(I'm trying to get back to traditional art since I'm too dependent on Photoshop) when it came into a big box.

I brought it inside expecting to see my marker sets which it is but behind them is my Retro FIM ponies!  :frolic: I practically forgot about them as I thought it won't arrived in first week of September but here it is!

I really loved their box art. Twilight Sparkle looks cute in G1 form while Applejack just remains the same as her G1 counterpart. XD

Has anyone else have that set too? :3

I got my email from Amazon saying it shipped, but it's not here yet! They looks so cute! I can't wait. Although I worry they are really small. How big are they? Are they like G4 size?

As feared, the box is way more interesting to me than the ponies xD. But I can't justify it just for the G4 G1 box art.
Though Pinkie's box art eye still annoys me.

The ponies still don't look like G1. Sorry Hasbro.

These are very cute! Kinda sad they didn’t use applejacks g1 pose for applejack, but this is alright. The marks look like something from g1 too! I was on the fence about purchasing, but now I think I may.

Have they arrived yet? I hope yours come soon.
I took them out before putting them back in so I didn't think of comparing sizes till you suggested. But I have to wait till I get back home since we just evacuated from the hurricane. I put my ponies in safe place but I'll bring them back out for size comparison after Dorian leaves(we're hoping it'll turn north instead of hitting Florida but then again, weather people are not always right).

That's the reason why I kept the box because I'm such a sucker for beautiful fantasy 80's pastel artwork style. :3 They also inspired me to draw G1 MLP fanart.

The toys defiantly look more like G3 than G1. I'm kinda confused why they couldn't use the G1 mold like they did for re releases G1 ponies. :/

Yes, mine arrived! :D They're pretty much exactly the size of a G4.

I hope you stay safe! I hear the weather is just awful. :X

Sweet! I'm glad yours finally came! :D Now we know they're same size but I'm going to do a photo comparison for my DA account when I get home, hopefully it'll be there and if Dorian will quit taking it's sweet @$$ time hovering at Bahamas to move away towards north(I'm hoping it'll go Floyd as it was about to hit Florida but changed the direction at the last minute. I'm hoping the same for Dorian).
It's starting to move so my state won't have to suffer too much damage, especially the eyewall. :/ My brother and his wife is staying and watching our house as well as looking after my stepfather's fish.

Oh yikes! Stay safe.

I'm in safe place but I'm worried for my brother and his wife who stayed behind to watch the house and the fish. We're still waiting for Dorian to change paths to move north instead of hitting Florida. I just the hurricane would hurry it up already as it's making us Floridians anxious already. :/

I really like the look of these so far.  I would love to see them in person before/if I decide to buy them though, given how so many collectors are not a fan of them.  Personally I think they look really cute.  Nice buy!  :frolic:
