I don’t have the best knowledge of the G1 ponies but I can tell that there is something fishy about that list. It seems like most G1 collectors own a Medley and a Moondancer. How did Mimic not make the list? So much for ‘rare’ ponies!

Oh man, someone please tell me that’s not even close for Princess Pristina? I think she’s cute and hope people don’t start hiking her price over this. I did run across a Princess Pony (Tiffany I believe? - the blue one with white hair) in a local vintage toy store the other day and was surprised when the guy working there looked up recently sold ones on EBay and priced her at $75. He said that was the shop’s pricing policy, though he’d been hoping he could give me a good price and wasn’t surprised when I balked. So…a lot of ponies I remember as seeming easy to come by seem to be going for a LOT these days! Like ones I sort of had on my “wouldn’t mind having eventually but I’m in no rush to get” list are suddenly outside my budget. Oof.

My question is what were they on, there is a HUGE  difference between list price,and selling price.

I went and corrected this person. Once again, greedy idiots don't do their homework.

Nowhere near that. She goes between $50 and $65 last I knew.

*facepalm* Not one of THESE articles again! I hate it when these totally inaccurate "what ~*RaRiTiEs*~ might be in YOUR attic?!?!??/" posts show up, some random non-collector always sees it and the prices end up going up because people are trying to sell their "ULTRA rare perfect condition Peachy, special bald edition!!" =_=

@Lilja, I didn't know that. Although was it a genuine prototype? My first thought on that was do the HQcustom people make a white base in that pose?

On Pristina. Mint in box, possibly she might sell for that amount. Loose with accessories might bump her up a bit. Generally loose, I agree with other people, probably not as high as that. The writer of the blog should be clearer about whether they mean in package or not. They're not using any actual collector terms to make that clear.

I would also wonder if maybe the expensive moondancer moc did happen because her card is unusual to see. It doesn't change the value of MD or of MD MOC being far lower. But if one incident happened, and lockdown has created some mad pricies, I guess it may have sparked a social media conversation somewhere that inspired this post to exist.

When people have some facts mixed in with falsehoods, they sound a lot more plausible than when it's all completely wrong.

I might pay well for a Moondancer on a pristine card but, there are a lot of factors involved.  Such as, covid ruined my year.  :lol:  Mostly, I think sellers are going to be disappointed if they follow this guide.

Meh. I don't have a lot to say about 'rarest' ponies. Personally I think it's subjective and where you grew up.

I had the darndest time ever finding Tickle back in the 80's. For me even back then there were certain ponies that were HTF. And just a notice, Mimic was not one of them.

The other thing, the photo of Rapunzel, I know I'm nitpicky but her hair did not look like that when she came from Hasbro. She did not have big curls, her hair was more wavy, etc.
Probably doesn't own a stolen piece of the Taj Mahal.

Rapunzel's aura has been created by mad ponypeople though. I know that mine cost $80. I traded for her, but my trade partner told me so we could work out an equal trade based on monetary value at the time. Yes, mine has had a tail cut, but considering the current price, I would imagine a mint one back then was only $200 in contrast to what it is now.

As a kid I just wanted Medley and Glory :'(

I've found a Mimic here; she wasn't sold here. I've never found Medley, who also wasn't sold here, but I havre found Mimic.  I've never believed her to be rare. All the suggestions about her being shortpacked etc are also created by mad ponypeople rumours.

 So yeah, these kinds of sites do have an impact...maybe. But I think probably years of myths being circulated in collecting communities about a particular pony's rarity is more damaging to actual collector prices.

One or two people who know nothing about ponies hiking their prices because of a random online blog can mostly be ignored. Collectors regularly pricing a pony at a certain high price because it's the going rate is the thing that really causes pony inflation.

I don't like sites like this basically because I don't like pony misinformation, but we're pretty guilty as a community of hiking our own prices for random reasons.

Look at Glowing Magic/GnS ponies. They used to be very normally priced...what the heck happened there. O.o.
