Took the words right out of my mouth Tailrust. It's a shame cause I DID just pick this up to see what they did with G1 :( I really wanted to give it a chance but there's just no crossover in this crossover!

The witch daughters.. I really honestly feel almost like they were designed for some OTHER story but not used, and then they decided to have a G1 crossover and recycled the designs for this, even though it doesn't make sense. It'd certainly explain why they look nothing like their supposed relatives :/ Not that I was hoping for a "generation xerox" design (i.e. for the daughters to look exactly like their mothers) but come on!! I said from the get-go "why not just use the ACTUAL witches" but I was hoping it'd make sense when I'd actually read it, but man, it makes even LESS sense after reading! Geez.

I don't know if it'll be enough to sway any of you who have decided, but I wouldn't lose hope if you genuinely want to see G1 characters appear. I keep up with solicitation summary's as they appear on EQD, and you might want to see the summary for issue #4:

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I haven't had to chance to pick up this comic or the final issue of FIM yet, but maybe this won't be the worst thing? I've just been disappointed with the new artist so far.

It says "and more" so the ones from the cover could be in there too.

Let's not forget it was really common for later (especially post G1) releases of G1 animation on DVD/VHS to appear with completely the wrong ponies/style of ponies/utterly made up ponies on the covers, so I don't think that's a new thing.

What will matter is whether they're inside the comic.

I reserve judgement till there's more information available.

Oh so,
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
I haven't read any of the comics yet, much less this series, but however they end up doing it, I'll be ultimately fine with it, as I like the idea behind it, and if worst comes to worst and they don't portray the G1s well (not saying they won't) it is just one portrayal of them, and we still have the G1 portrayals of them and anything else we like.

Yeah it's not particularly uncommon for comic covers to have NOTHING to do with the actual story, including featuring characters that are nowhere to be found in the actual story. (Honestly I think I've seen more "completely unrelated to the story" covers, than ones that actually WERE related to the story!) I agree it is misleading in this particular case, though.

[spoiler]But what I gathered from here she doesn't really have a canon personality. (Tbh I'm not super well versed in the G1 cartoon. While I am into all generations as far as the toys go I never really watched any of the cartoons before G4 and even that one I dropped off on somewhere along the way) If that's the case then while it's not the most creative move it wouldn't go against any past canon if they did that.
