The Inner Workings of Pony Life Ponies
« on: January 03, 2020, 09:40:27 PM »
(Please be kind to them in this thread)
Couldn't think of a good place to put this...but I took the head off Twilight.
The head is very easy to pop off and pop on, which makes sense considering the joint.

Regarding the body, the ball joint as much a part of the body as the wings or legs are. There is no way to access the tail from here.
Looking at the bottom of her,

It's a bit hard to see, but it looks like this is where the tail was put in. It is a bit hard to get to, but with a long exacto I suppose it wouldn't be much of a problem.

The head is fairly standard, but the neck plug now completely blocks off any access to the hair, so you would need to cut out the small ring to get in.
Both the body and the head feel like the same plastic as the G4.5 brushables.
I'd love to crack in to her and give her blue hair and a forelock but I'll need to pick up a double first.  ^.^

That's very interesting ! I'm not a huge fan of them, but I like to see the inner workings of ponies. That's good to know how to restore or customize them. ^^ Thanks a lot !!

Thank you for showing us how they're put together .

Very interesting!  The head setup reminds me of how Monster High dolls seem to be made.  (Based on what I've seen in doll customizing videos.)

Maybe a tail could be put in and out by heating the bum with hot water and pressing the new tail in? Or is it secured like in Barbie horses?

It's sad they make them so hard these days. I love customizing G2s but their plastic is so hard... I always have to reheat them. It's like some gens want to be extra tough :P

Not that I'd plan on customizing these, but I'd be very interested in seeing how you disassemble how you'd access the tail and especially the mane.

This is like an iFixit review for pony's.

Hmm, wonder if the tails work like the McD's ponies with brushable tails - you can pull those out if you soften the glue. No clue how you would put in a new one.

These ponies might be the hardest to customize standard brushables yet! It makes me wonder what the assembly process looks like in the factory.

That's interesting, thanks for sharing! The tail, through the back leg? That's a new one, if that's how they did it O:
I also wonder if there's some sort of washer in there or if liek Zapper said, you could potentially soften the plastic and just yank the tail out through the tail hole. I'd be afraid of splitting the plastic doing that though D:

I did actually order a full case's worth off Amazon so I don't have to play Walmart jumping all month, so if I get a double of anyone (especially Twi) they are getting taken apart. Will try to yank the tail out the butt if the circle has no access, but I do think there'd be a washer in there...

Clearly you've been doing lots of nefarious pony experiments in your basement-lab. :silly:

That's kind of like the G4 alicorns. To get to the tail on them you have to remove the wings which kind of plug in to the body (requiring cutting the glue). Difficult but not impossible to put a new tail on.
