Aww, they look cuter in real-life photos than they did in their stock images! I like how small they are  ^.^

thanks for your reviews guys, much needed and appreciated. i was so uncertain on these, i like the concept but now have decided to pass on them even though amazon has made it easy and affordable (well semi affordable) to post to New Zealand which has been super hard on a lot of 35th Anniversary ponies.
the hair, neck-lines and long dinosaur necks are the biggest put off.

wow, I did not know they were that small. I always thought they looked too strange to be G1.

I'm considering getting two of these... one to keep in box and one for customs later on... however not sure if I want to dish out 50$ for them XD
Maybe if Amazon has a sale?

They are cute.  I kind of want to redraw their eyes.  But the noses are very cute.

Aaaaaaawww! I thought they'd be bigger! they're SO CUTE!

Putting them alongside the G1 really demonstrates that they look nothing like G1 at all :/

But I'm glad the quality is better than we feared it might be for the hair.

if anything, I think they look like the retro art! Which I think is super cool because it's really cute imo ^^

People keep saying that, but clearly I'm ponyblind because I absolutely can't see it. The art looks more like G1. The ponies don't.

Yeah, I still say they're more G3 Dollymix with G1 wings then anything else.

I'm not asking anyone to destroy their ponies but I'd be super interested to see a G4/retro head swap.

They have that plastic bit that makes head removal more tricky- but the neck size appears to be the same. So basically they did some modifications to the original G4 sculpts for these.  Probably on a computer program.

It would have been much cooler if they had just used shrunken G1 sculpts, but I guess I'll take what I can get.

I think they're pretty and more reminiscent of G3 than G1 to me which means I still like them because I love G3 too^^
