G5- do you have expectations?
« on: August 16, 2020, 02:46:35 AM »
What are you guys expecting for either the g5 toyline or animation? Are you going in with no expectations at all? Or with reservations?
The most I expect with any certainty is that the prequel movie slated to be release in  summer 2020, and g5 season 1 slated to release in the fall is definitely being delayed due to COVID. I had slight hope that there will be a brand new cast of ponies, but I have always doubted that, given g5 will ride on G4’s coattails.

I know it’s a simple one, but I just hope g5 is worth it. G4 is what got me into mlp, and it was fantastic. I hope hasbro can take what they learnt from the cartoon and apply it to make something just as wonderful. I don’t want us to slip back into what the later g3 animation was.
I think I’m going on with some reservations, but not super specific ones. Quality animation, probably better quality on the toys, more variation (can we stop with the same mane 6 over and over again?) and overall something that can hold a candle to its predecessors. Let this next generation be better, building on what success the old had and learning from its mistakes. I just hope that the future looks bright, and the toys and animation reflect this.
In all honesty, I don’t expect hasbro to take this kind of path. There is little indication that they would, but I’ll hold onto a scrap of hope.
This. Sentence. Is. False! Dontthinkaboutitdontthinkaboutit.

Not exactly. I'm expecting more of the same tired and rehashed formula and characters.

yeah, I her ya. I’m deathly afraid of MLP becoming one not those franchises, like TMNT where only the same characters are focused on in every reboot. All thanks to FIM’s success....

My expectations not that great, but hopeful. What I didn't like about FiM after a while was too much pop cultural references and growing to really dislike the characters. I know that is going to happen in G5 eventually for me, though I do hope for a new cast of characters...

I expect that if they go for something different than G4 it can do well. But if they just try to redo G4 then neither FiM fans or general MLP fans will be happy. I lived and loved FiM, but you can't recapture that ever again. It's best for them to make something new

I expect more of the Core 7/Mane 6 concept(the same ponies over and over), and the quality to continue to decline.  It’s also expecting to save some money and space for this generation.

What I'd like is if we have to stick with the same six ponies that each one gets a unique mold. I know this probably won't be a popular opinion but I'd rather get the Mane 6 again with 6 unique body molds than 6 totally new characters that all use the same mold and are just palette swaps of each other with different cutie marks.

Agreed.

For me, G4 has killed My Little Pony in pretty much every area that made it good in past generations.

Repetitive and boring character designs. Check.
Repetitive and unconvincing storylines. Check.
Repetitive and boring packages. Check.
Repetitive and boring gimmicks. Check.
Girly stereotypes about bows, ribbons, parties, fashion and other things? Check.

There are some lovely G4 brushables, and I don't mind the repetitive pose of the original ones, but that variety was stifled so early it didn't get a chance to take off. I hate the rebooted poses, for me they all look ridiculous and the variety of characters disappeared then as well.

I was never a fan of the G1 TV show, until I saw FIM and realised actually G1 had some good episodes. FIM is at its best predictable. At worst there are times it's pushing questionable moral values on the audience.

I have issues with it trying to frame 'friendship' in such a forced and unrealistic way, too.

MLP as an original and innovative toy line basically died the moment it became dependent on an animation. It's just a shame it was that animation, because now we're stuck with the most annoying pony characters ever created...probably forever.

My only expectation is that bronies hate it completely, although I wouldn't get my hopes up.

I agree with this, I'd love to see a larger variety of poses!  G4 for years had basically the same pose over and over and I found that a bit boring, but then when there were some new poses released I was happy to see that and went out and bought them.
I'd also like to see the toys be larger again, more like G3-size, but I don't think I really expect this.
