Any tips on how to open a Magic Motion with the leg/head action without damaging her? I want to reroot but my fingers are about to break trying to pry the head off.

That's the one in Ivy's pose? I did actually break one of those (and nearly my fingers).
So... warm water is the key.

The one on the far right is that MagicMotion pose.

The plug is glued into the body à la G4 so to say. I wriggled Sundance's out with warm water and a screwdriver (and stabbed myself  :cry: as noted before)

I'm actually working on a page about this on my website! Should be done by the end of the day :)

Thanks, Moonbreeze! That's exactly the one I need to reroot: MM Sweetberry.
Your tutorial comes at the perfect time :)

You're welcome! I hope Sundance helps with Sweet Berry's/ Ivy's mechanism as well.
I only popped off SB's head for a prototype comparison. But I'd be happy to tear one apart if it helps xD

Please do! I got the head off by now but would be interested in seeing one completely disassembled.

What made you get into G2’s and why?

I was already collecting g1 and when g2 came out I was very excited. They are different but I love them.

Did you like them when they originally came out?

Yep. I was 12 when they came out.

Did you pursue them after they became a Europe exclusive line?

Not at first as I didn't have my own income source. Started collecting them more actively in the past year or so.

What is a grail of yours and why?

Right now my brain had been focused on Precious and Wingsong II (aka Medicin) but because I am a loose complete collector they have eluded  me. I will have them one day even if it means ripping them from the plastic prison with my bare hands.

Friendss I would like your opinions for Miss Aquatica's hair!

I'm gonna choose colours that are reminiscent of coral, so I'm thinking about 4 colours.

Yellow, green, pink and blue. But the question is, which colours? Or do you have a different colour recommendation? All from Retrodolls.uk

Pink: Ballet Slippers or Boudoir?

Ballet Slippers:

Blue: Reef or Niagara?

Green: Gelignite or Eden?

Yellow: Yellow Peril, Sunblast Kiwi, Golden Glory or Lemon Drop?

Golden Glory:

I'm thinking Boudoir, Reef, Eden and Golden Glory or Sunblast Kiwi.

Any feedback is appreciated!

Friends and especially Moonbreeze friend!

I've removed Mm Ivy's head successfully but any clue on how to remove the neck plug thingy?

I have no clue on how to do it besides brute force.

Oh yeah, I was going to do this xD Let me see if I can find a bait!

I really like the combo of Boudoir, Reef, Gelignite and Sunblast Kiwi.

Thank you Moonbreeze, I'll see if that works out.

Friends, do you think a baity Sugar Belle would work for a non-articulated Mommy Bonheur? I'm not able to do a colour comparison.

Not got many photos of my G2 Ponies, but have Customised & also have taken photos of every single piece of G2 merchandise I own; so many in fact I'm just posting a link to the Discord G2 merchandise thread (I dominate it wi my G2 merch)
https://discordapp.com/channels/536715987127631873/546050044898574346
It does help that when I search eBay I type "my little pony g2" in the search part

Editing cause I found the quiz
What made you get into G2’s and why?
Just getting into Ponies generally again in 2005. Some sites who liked G2s  had a great theory about their age I tend to agree with, & they integrate in my Ponyworld like that; as young teenagers. To prove the age theory, on the same Discord, if you look at G2 Customs you'll see two Ponies called Barmitzvah & Batmitzvah, inspired by the Hanukkah HQG1C Ponies to give them a family.

Did you like them when they originally came out?
At the time they came out I'd recently gone through a hard time & lost almost everything, so had to replace a lot of stuff. Ponies weren't that high on my priorities at that time, & though I saw some stuff (The Rainbow Forest playset for example) & liked it, I told myself I had other things to buy first.

Did you pursue them after they became a Europe exclusive line?
I started hunting all the first three generations of MLP at the same time, 2005. Plus I live in the UK, which helps G2-wise. The French ones are still hard to get, though I've procured some.

What is a grail of yours and why?
For G2s, it has to be that mansion!!! I'm running out of room for the G2 Babies & would love it for another nursery. The playpark twins, Nosy & Click, Study & Play, Springly, & Springdy, along with Baby Fern, are also on my wantlist. Grail I have is the amazing boat COMPLETE!!!

I'm so excited! I only have 5 G2s so far, (Ivy, Sundance, Clever Clover, Golden Glow, Flash) and since I just got all my ponies out of storage (gah, again! poor ponies) and a new job, I went on a bit of a shopping spree.

My final purchase was 4 G2s from a lovely seller in the Netherlands! She seems to be purging her collection, sadly. She asked if I'd take ALL her pony stuff but there was so much there was no way I could! So I grabbed these lovely girls from her, all of which I have wanted for a long time! Here are some photos she sent me!

My spree also included 4 G1s (Baby Sea Princess, Starglow, Dutch Diary, Barnacle) and 1 G4 (Sandbar) and a cool G1 pony shirt! I will post photos once all the ponies get here! Waiting on Barnacle and these lovely girls!

Since there's a G2 thread, I'll post here.
I have a light up Princess Silver Swirl, but her horn is broken and doesn't light up anymore. Do you have any ideas how to fix this? I can sculpt another horn, but I want it to light up... Is there a tutorial how to fix such pony?
