I don't mind pony armies at all, that's kind of nice to see. ^^ I wouldn't do it myself, though I like getting variants of the same pony.

No I'm not against it. People can collect how they want. I don't usually have multiples myself because that's one space less for a pony I want, however I am now in possession of a small g3/g4 Rainbowdash army. I'll show it off when my retro dash comes in the mail.

Can 4 ponies be considered a very small army?
I would consider 4 a small army, my cotton candy army started unintentionally, and is still small but seems to be growing as I'm now looking for variations, I love the 35th anniversary cc x

I think it's interesting how the subject of armies as controversial has only really become a thing recently...people have been keeping pony armies for years. I have less problem with people having an army of ponies than I do with people permanently altering a pony, because if someone did sell their army, the ponies would leave to new homes unscathed. Armies aren't hurting, even if they are kind of hoardish. There are hundreds of ponies out there which we never see, living in collections of people with them in storage anyway.

But I think as ponies get harder to find we'll see the subject come up again. There has certainly been some bad feeling towards people hoarding harder to find ponies. I think maybe it will get to a point where making in your face brag posts about armies of rarer ponies will be discouraged, but I don't think armies will ever cease.

The way I see it is that there are actually many more loose ponies than collectors.

As to whether or not I have armies - the answer is generally no. I do have I think five Tropical Breezes, one from childhood and one which is MIB included in that number, but that's the most of the same pony and all of them have reasons attached as to why I have them all.

I have six Baby Mischiefs but I count them as different because they are all different. There is one HK, one NC, and four made in China - one with rainbow tinsel in mane and tail, one with gold tinsel in the mane and tail, one with gold in the mane and rainbow in the tail and one with the reverse. So six ponies, all different - not an army.

I have a fair few Cherries Jubilees too, but aside having MOC and loose versions (again one from childhood) of the two UK releases, none are doubles, all are different variants/releases/versions (including european, SS, Spain, etc). Ditto on Medley (I think Italy, Mexico, Greek, Peru...as well as the two regular HK versions and a y2 MOC). Those to me aren't armies, but variants, so they don't count as the 'same'. To some people they do but I don't think those kinds of armies cause controversy.

But I am not against armies, because to me they do no harm to the pony for the long run. Most armies are very well loved and appreciated by their owners, thus what can be wrong with that?

I've voted. I'm not for, because of room and how expensive it is to bough that much the same pony, but if some people likes them, that's fine. We all have our own way of collecting :biggrin:

This was an extremely well thought out reply, I love every single one of my cotton candies but I'm fairly certain just like my flutters as time goes by I will generally give some away and sell a couple but I mainly like to do give always to people I know love to collect.
It upsets me when I see a certain pony hoarded just to be held and sold at insane prices  which is what happens to the 35th anniversary ponies where I live,  I think hording with the intention to hike the price up is quite bad but I understand not everyone will agree x

Flickr isn't working for me right now but I was going to show a pic of my G1 Twilight the unicorn army even though most of them are custom versions of her,


I think pony armies are fun as long as someone doesn't decide to hoard every copy of that pony just so no one else can have one.

Everyone's armies are always so cute, I always love seeing other's collections!  I do not have the funds or space to have many multiples, but I love seeing all the different color variants or poses of the same pony!  I don't know that I personally would own dozens of the exact same pony, but ones with different hair or poses definitely, or rescues because I am a sucker for rescues...

I wouldn't collect an army myself, because of storage space and it's just not my style. It doesn't bother me if other people have armies, except maybe if they're a really rare pony. If someone, somehow, someway had a Rapunzel army, I think i might be a bit bothered then. (By wondering how they can even afford multiple Rapunzel's  :lol: )
