omg I've seen that before!! Or other faded-hair ponies too, like I saw a G3 Minty labelled a rare variant once because of her 'white' hair >.<; It's scary how little research people do ahaha!

Reasons why ID sites should carry correct information. :P

Although that one I thought had been thoroughly debunked by now o.o I haven't seen it on an ID site in years.

The prices are not typical.  The auction is funny simply because the ponies pictured are not the ponies described, and neither the ponies described nor the ponies pictured-  EVER go for those prices. Ever.

In general, any of the G1 MLP pictured sell for cheaper than even the "retro" remake ponies...

Well we had better hurry!  Only 3 hours left!!!

I was thinking of contacting the seller to tell them the names of the ponies and advise that they are not particularly rare nor are they mail order nor are they twice as fancy-  but rarely do people enjoy hearing that I'm afraid.

The pegasus is the German variant of Princess Pearl, unless I miss my guess, which would make her on the more desireable end of the spectrum...

Oh, very pretty!  Too bad they didn't list her separately, in auction format.  They could have sold at least one pony, ha ha.

Oh yeah!  Well there you go. One pony at least worth $20 or so-

The rest of the ponies... probably less than $10 each. 

I will confess that I did break down and email the seller with the names of each ponies, and let her know that they are not "Twice as Fancy" or "mail order" -

I tried to be as kind as possible since maybe there was some kind of listing error (like maybe the original or intended photo was of 6 MIB baby mail order TAF ponies...  which would appear to e the only reasonable explanation for the price)

The only one worth any money there for sure is Starglow, and even she's not enough to put that group sky-high, being anywhere from 60-75.

Okay they are just being intentionally ridiculous.  I gave that seller the names of all the ponies- he can search "sold auctions" to see what they sell for.

Looking at the rest of his items, it looks like a dude selling a bunch of random stuff- not a pony person. Obviously this is one of those people who saw one auction ending (probably for MIP TAF babies) and thought he hit a gold mine cuz he had 6 ponies to sell..

There is no helping some people.
