Would you buy a restored pony?
« on: November 13, 2019, 04:19:34 PM »
Hello,

I'm thinking about selling some restorable g1 doubles I have. Would anyone buy a (heavily) restored pony?
I'm taling about reroots, symbol, body and eye repaints. If not I'll probably customise them.
In the herd are: italian bowtie (needs reroot and retail), italian applejack (needs 1 eye completely repainted and has haircut), sundae best sherbert. (Hair cut and body discolouration, symbols and eyes are perfect. Is pink eyed variant) I also have a restored taf yum yum (marks and eyes repainted, parts of her face and wings repainted and rerooted). Baby glory. (has body discolouration, marker on inside of ears, small marker mark on on head/body seam, eyes, symbols and her are good)

Edit: Forgot baby Glory
Edit 2: Just figured out sherbert is a pink eyed variant.

Not trying to advertise here, just trying to see what I should do with them.

Best Regards,

Luke

Mostly, no.  There may be a rare occasion (nirvana or such).

But in most, I am a purist.  I like to keep em as is.  :)

I would, as long as the restore looks good. You could probably sell the Italians as is though.

It really depends. Rerooted hair? No thanks, I can tell. Repainted areas? As long as they're good, I would be fine. Repainted bodies are a no though, so are resculpted parts.

Generally though, I would prefer to do that work by myself.

Depends on the price, and the quality of the restoration. :)

For me, it depends on the pony and how much work they've had done. Body repaints though are a hard no from me. But in all honesty, I'd rather restore the pony myself, as I really like doing it ^^ I agree though that you could probably sell the italians as they are :)

If they're restorable honestly I wouldn't bait them (I have a hard time baiting g1s at all), but IMO when you're doing full body paint jobs, it's almost a custom ^^' if you restore and sell, make sure to state clearly what you've done.  :)

Personally I wouldn't, I just prefer to keep them as original as possible. I do think it's better to restore than customize if they're actually restorable :B but I do agree that if they're so far gone that they require a full-body repaint, you might as well customize 'em.

True, but it was a taf yum yum. I think I'll buy an upgrade, but keep the restored one...

I put no as it's the closest to my feelings. Generally no, things like donor tails replacing washers etc I don't care about. But the more extensive the restoration the more rare the pony should be. So for example I'm not going to buy a restored cotton candy, but a Nirvana would be more reasonable. I'd still rather an original Nirvana with cut hair or missing symbols than restored

Most of my ponies are restored to some extent so it wouldn't make much of a difference to me. As long as the pony looks close enough to being mint I'm good, regardless of how much of the pony is original.

I actually won't buy ponies with original pink hair if they're prone to fading - I wouldn't be able to display them since they'd just fade, and where's the fun in something you can't display? Faded hair and re-pinks only for me.

I'll only buy rehairs if it's rehaired in original pony hair and as close to matching the original color as possible.

Repaints and resculpts? Never bought any, but I'm not opposed to the idea, so long as they're done well.

I've bought rehairs but anything else I think I'd rather do myself.
