Found some more covers for the upcoming issues... I found them here (I hope that link works), not reposting all of them since most of them are just G4 stuff, no G1, but this one I had to post...

Okay, I'm confused. Why is Morning Glory there (check the symbol, that's definitely hers) when the solicitation says Rosedust, and why is she purple and red?!?! Also this is a bit nitpicky but that body is all wrong... that's a regular earth pony body, not a flutter body... wouldn't nitpick if the artist was using their own style, but it definitely looks like they were trying to mimic the Rescue at Midnight Castle art style (which might explain why Glory's symbol is all purple instead of the star being silver, cause RaMC coloured it that way too) so.. (I know the flutters weren't in RaMC but you get what i mean, they're clearly referencing off the cartoon here) The symbol could be a goof-up or maybe a last-minute character change, or just yet another example of the covers not matching the story contents, but I'm really confused as to where they got those colours from...

And that's definitely G3 Minty, not G1 Minty. So... I'm confused, I really don't get what she's doing here.

Honestly, I'm surprised anyone is surprised that it's not accurate. Again, there are a lot of issues with those kinds of illustrations on the dvd and vhs cases. Even in the later G1 comics sometimes it's a bit odd. And I'm not talking about when they've used prototypes as the base for illustrations. I'm talking about...well, we could just start with the many designs of Dazzleglow...

(see bottom of page)

Point being, they're not going to get it right. Even in G1, if the pony wasn't right there in stores at that exact time (and even if it was), sometimes there were glitches. The G1 fact file has a purple Minty and a unicorn honeycomb, after all! These aren't people who have the ponies in front of them. It's a sort of miracle if they've looked at some screencaptures from the old shows, tbh.

The one confusion for me is probably morning glory, but it also seems like they don't know how to draw her.  So possibly they haven't had access to the movie...

Wth?That's Morning Glory? Coulda fooled me! I honestly had no idea who that was supposed to be. Are we sure that's not a miscolored Forget-Me-Not? And who's that towards the back? Baby Cuddles? The only one I recognize is Glory. And I think that's supposed to be either Cotton Candy or Baby Lickety-split.

Pink pony is cotton candy looking. Honestly I think the artist is probably out of their comfort zone in drawing outside of the gen 4 style lol
My DeviantArt, why not drop by and take a look!

I agree, it seems like cotton candy to me.

You can easily find movie clips on YouTube as well as other ways to watch it . If you catch my drift.

They might not be that far outside their comfort zone  because the artwork is very nice. Its just a bit confusing.

You know what? Nm. I guess they might have based her off a screen error.

...That pretty much suggests they drew her using the wiki.

Okay then. :)

They couldn't have scrolled down a little and corrected it?  :huh:

I was thinking maybe Sundance, but an incorrect Cotton Candy seems more likely. ;) I associate Cotton Candy with having hair closer to her coat colour, but I guess if you're referencing the 25th Anniversary Repro, maybe not. :lol:


As for Morning Glory, it looks like Morning Glory to me, but they used her cartoon colours. Same exact colours... maybe directly from this screenshot from My Little Wiki? ;) Double checked with the movie and End of Flutter Valley and it just seems like this is a weird screenshot with weird colours, her actual colours seem to be more green and accurate in the cartoon...

I know I've been totally ripping on these people here, but is it wrong that I'm kinda amused that they based her off a color error? :lol:

If they're using the wiki, no wonder they're confused. I'm not insulting the wiki, but it's full of G1 ponies in sets and based around the toyline, and they're hopping all over the place with which ponies they want to use...

Yeah, that makes sense somehow.

But I agree with LAW, that's quite amusing. To use the MLW screengrab, the one image that doesn't reflect Morning Glory.

This makes redhead Morning Glory somewhat canon... waiting for customs to be made... :devious:

No...it just exposes that they don't know the first thing about G1 and don't have any viable source material to use as their reference. If they did proper research on the characters they wanted to draw, then they'd probably get the colours right, whatever style they used.

It usually annoys me when collectors put random words into the search engine and just believe whatever answer it spits out, but this...is on a whole new level.

I don't even know what to think.
(But go mad on the customs anyway xD)

Would those customs be titled Screen Error Morning Glory?  :P
