I could make some pictures in daylight tomorrow. I have the retro Heartthrob unpaked and Sparkler in the box.

The purple part of BF Sparkler's hair already matches original Sparkler's purple.  I think they just liked the way the blend looks.  Similar to Skydancer getting a bolder yellow color than the original, which was more pastel.

That would be cool!

I have Heart Throb in box.  I have to say, if they correct the colors, I will switch her out.  That brown is so dull.  She might be amazing re-rooted though.

I like Sparkler better without the tail stripe.  I think it would be nice to have her too.  But, since I have a minty original... I don't know if I would go that far.

I have no original Heartthrob to compare with, so I took the new Firefly. :blush:

The Sparkler, that I unpacked, lost much hair by brushing, so that one in the box ist the substitution pony of the salesperson.

I'm not so positive any more about the new ponies.  :blush:

The pictures seem to be cut down in size somehow?  :dizzy:

She's miss sugar-pink, licka licka lips...really reminds me of chewed bubblegum.
That's a shame to hear about your Sparkler. :( I got a dupe Gusty to rehair and I just took her out, lost maybe four strands but she's fine otherwise. I hope that's just a batch issue and not all Sparklers have that problem!

Picked up Sparkler today at Target. I know I said I didn't want her because of the changes to her hair, but now that I have her in hand, I actually really like her with the extra red in her hair, so I take back my statement! She looks so much prettier in person than in pictures, I think. The only strange thing is, as Tanja's pic above shows, her purple hair is actually 2 mixed colors, like a lighter purple mixed in with the wisteria purple. I wonder why they did that.

I have Heart Throb out of quarantine now. I'm leaving her in her box but I am not sure atm whether she is adjusted or not. I will have to compare her to my G1 one...she didn't strike me as uber dull when I got her out, but then I might've been expecting it to be worse due to people's comments...

I had no problems with my Sparkler or my Gusty, hairwise.

If they're stopping the red/purple combi thing in Sparkler's hair, I'm glad I got mine already.
