Price Check G2 unicorn version of Golden Light/Glow ...
« on: October 17, 2020, 04:46:46 PM »
I have a G2 Golden Glow that is a unicorn. I saw a better condition (but not mint) of this selling for 70.00 on ebay. mine has bad symbols, some silver off the tip of its horn, a small eye chip (still has crystals, though!), and maybe dry hair (but not frizzy).

I FINALLY was hit by the idea for a pony persona, and for it I needed a yellow unicorn. I figured to make one of each generation. Would it be best to lay off Gen 2 unicorns in general unless its for restoration? Are they all too valuable?

Just as a side note: In July I bought Happy Glow for thirty-five dollars. Now she is worth $100.00? for real? On the one hand this is great, on the other...how am i gonna get the others?

Golden Glow or Golden Light? As far as I am aware this is 2 different ponies...

Golden Glow is definitely one of the more sought after.

Hopefully a G2 expert will weigh in but I would assume most G2 unicorns are semi htf.

I would definitely not customize a G2 unicorn, they're just too rare.

My suggestion would be to find a regular Sky Skimmer (very common) and mold a horn for her.  :)  If you're mimicking G2 style then the horn will be painted anyway, so it won't be evident at all. :)

Taffeta, I read on ebay and then My little pony wiki that the unicorn version of Golden Light was packaged as Golden Glow. (The seller on ebay gave it both names, including "Golden Light 2").

Yes, I am glad there is a Sky Skimmer...and she is a cool shade of yellow, which I actually prefer.

I have some pictures of the exact pony im taking about price checking, but I can't figure out how to upload the pictures.

There are actually two releases of Golden Glow as a unicorn. One is far rarer, but both are pretty hard to find and expensive.

There are 5 unicorns with wings in the entire G2 line.  They were released in two separate sets. 

The first set of three was released in 2001 and had Copper Glow, Silver Glow, and the first unicorn Golden Glow(Golden Glow 1).
http://www.lavenderlagoon.com/2001goldenglow.html

All are very popular(particularly with their wings), and even loose can go for a good price. This release of Golden Glow’s paint tends to turn green, so ones with good paint command a hefty premium. 


The second set had only two ponies - Golden Glow 2 and Diamond Glow(a rerelease of Silver Swirl). 
http://www.lavenderlagoon.com/2002goldenglow.html

Released in 2002 when the line was well into decline, this is a rare pony.  Judging from your description(silver horn), it sounds like you have this version.  Diamond Glow is a bit more in demand, but both ponies from this set are very rare and very popular.

Thank you for clearing this up, it was confusing.

I will have to figure out how to upload pics and get a real price check....

Possibly. The names are confusing for me because I bought most of my G2s in France, and so am not so great on the English names, especially when they switch. Either way, goddessofpeep has taken care of the confusion :)

I am not sure how customising G2 is thought of in general, but because there are so many that are only available in Europe, and that includes all the unicorns, it's just better to do as LM suggested.

Everyone,

Please take out your Sherlock Holmes magnifying glasses and take a gander at what happened on ebay to G2 unicorns since about one day after this conversation.

Whoops.  :what:
