Post by: Clipper on April 03, 2019, 06:43:49 AM
Welcome to the High Quality G1 Collector's Customs thread.


Sea Glimmers:

Welcome to the High Quality G1 Collector's Customs thread.

I would like to share what is coming up with the hqg1c collector's club project.


Sea Glimmers:

Sea Rose (Pink)
Ocean Mist (White)
Sapphire Sparkle (Blue)
Glitzy Waves (Yellow)

Each will feature a glittery body, with nylon hair and multicolor tinsel.




For more information on hqg1c and other custom ponies, please visit -

Teaser of upcoming Date Night ponies! The poses are correct, but hair colors and quality will be subject to change on actual ponies! I hope you all like them!

Original names may change, so they will be updated when we are 100% sure on them!

OOOOooh, I love these!! Is anyone else getting Queen Novo vibes from Ocean Mist? I loooove her!! :heart:

I saw these girls on Facebook, and I adore them! I especially love glitzy waves, I’m not always a fan of yellow, but her color scheme is so unique!

All of the new releases are so exciting! I really appreciate all the hard work you guys have put into this project! It’s really kickstarted my love for collecting again! :)

Me: Oh, a teaser thread. Yay. Let's take a look.

Me: Hrm, pretty sea ponies. But I don't think I need to...

Me: Sees the yellow one.

Me: *grabby hands*

I look forward to seeing the final results on these. I love Sea Ponies, and would really love if a later line of them involved blues and aquas and purples in conjunction with each other. But I really like the yellow colour scheme here, so I'm seriously tempted when the final ones come out :)

I probably won't be at ponycon this year, so I'll keep an eye on the websites and hope the exchange rates and trading rules sort themselves out.

Keep up the good work!

They're so beautiful!  I can't decide which is my favorite . . .

Do they come with weights in their tails? If not I'm going to put a big marble in each one.  Cheap, non-rusting weight, LOL.

I think he said they were going to make shells later on as add-ons.

I am not really feeling the colored ones but the yellow/gold and the silver are tempting.

The unicorn would make a great custom Majesty.  You could have her "holding" a sceptre in her raised hoof.  Very regal.  :)

her mane will turn to nylon, with a softer shade of yellow. Symbol placement will most likely be raised a bit higher. The actual ponies colors are correct on that one.


The white unicorn and yellow pony will have nylon as well, and in a softer pastel color. :)

This is my favourite set so far, I’ll definitely try to get all of them!

Good to hear their hair will be getting ‘pastellised’! I think they will look the most original 80’s Hasbro out of any sets so far!

There are 3 distributors in the USA and 2 in Europe. So there are multiple online shops to purchase from. But Clipper's Sail is the head source. There's no way to make 'knock off' from another source, as they all come from me and others buy also to re sell / trade, which I have no problem with. :)

Definitely gonna be grabbing the Date Nights, probably around Christmas. Also gonna be going for the 2 pairs of fundraiser twins, and absolutely gonna attend the Texas meetup! (You just HAD to put it in San Antonio, the city I attend college in, outside of my school year, so I'll be making the drive up I-10 ANOTHER time! :lol: Oh, well, at least it's not Dallas. Sorry, Dallas, but your city is like 4 hours away from anything, and the drive is really boring.)
