G5 toys: new poses or new characters?
« on: October 28, 2021, 01:46:47 AM »
Like many, I'm sure, I've been wondering about the future of the G5 toyline.  Which of these two directions would you prefer it was taken?  Many would probably want to say "both" :P  ...but if you had to pick, which would you choose?  Maybe comment on why you feel that way?

Ahhh I might have to go for more characters in the same standing pose, but I wouldn't be happy. I miss the ensemble ponies :(

The same 5 characters in different poses I think would get old fast unfortunately. Lots of different poses would kind of lose their fun if they were just the same 5 ponies in said poses

More characters easily. A lot of poses is nice and all, but character variety is absolutely what I care most about in terms of ponies. More poses wouldn't save G5 from being boring to collect if it continues down the route of a bunch of Mane 5 over and over.

I'd rather have a hundred different Ponies in one pose than five Ponies in twenty poses, because the whole point of MLP to me is a varied collection of Ponies. That was the appeal when I was growing up, & that hasn't changed in all this time. Bore 7 & the Mane Suxx have been done to death. Please, no more oversaturation.

I'm gonna have a contrary opinion and say neither. That's not to say I don't want a variety of characters or poses but that neither one is enough if they are going to be the same basic solid colored plastic, regular nylon hair, single cutie mark ponies. Not even if they have both. More important to me are the little "gimmicks" that go back all the way to G1 and are part of why it was so great. I hope for things like TAF markings or pearly bodies.

More ponies, same pose, if I had to choose.
Then again I have a Collector's Pose army, so I obviously don't have a problem with having many ponies in the same pose xD

Hard Choice.
From a customizer standpoint, I'd say more poses (due to not all of use can do reposes very easily)
From a collector standpoint, more character variety.
My DeviantArt, why not drop by and take a look!

Thirding Ponybookworm. I LOVE more poses and god knows I really wish Hasbro would step up their game there, but I'd vastly prefer greater character variety if we really could only have one or the other. G4 collecting got soooo boring once they decided to just release the same 6 ponies over and over.

Oh you really put into words exactly how I feel! 

I did go with poses over characters in the end, just because of the challenge of reposing.  But it was a really tough choice.   >_<

I don't really like the current pose that much, but I'd take character variety any day of the week :)

I may be one of the few people that doesn't mind basic standing pose that much (of course I would like to see more dynamic poses too) but I definitely want to more characters. Kinda hope that if they keep poses basic that would also mean that at least there will be variety in terms of how characters bodies look (apparently some toys already had some slight height difference and I would love if they kept going in that direction).
