Title: Of all the generations, of all the sets...
Post by: Loa on July 14, 2019, 06:07:23 AM
WHICH set do you think is the rarest to find in good condition and easily?

Thats a good question, personally the second twice as fancy line is super expensive, therefore harder to get (at least for me), all im missing is night gilder tho. I have a hard time finding any adult seaponies for a good price.

Flutter ponies. For obvious reasons.

I agree with flutters and Watercolor baby sea ponies. I find some of the petite ponies are hard to find without symbol rubs.

The Secret Surprise Ponies. I hear they're hard to find without their lids and keys.

Doesn't the second set Rainbows have issues with pvc breakdown and glitter rust?
Divine n Shines. Poor, sticky things...

Good choice.

Year 3 seaponies. I don't think I've ever seen any in good condition.

I suppose the mountain boys rank up there too.

Do all the G3 Avons have hair rot issues?

The Magic Message ponies, the symbol gets messed up.

I'd say the Twinkle Eyes are htf with good condition eyes, plus, you know, some are expensive.

Second set rainbows...
I strategically took the picture like this. They have cancer, glitter loss, glitter rust and are just so discolored I don't think they exist in nice condition...

I didn’t even think about those. But you are right, as a set they are hard to come by in mint condition.

Ponies with flocking, since some collectors shave it off and it doesn't grow back. XD;

I think I'm right that there are basically two batches of these, the ones that go ickly and the ones that don't...?

I have a mixed bag with this set. My Tickle is a bit sad looking, and I know my Pinwheel has rust...but on the flipside, my Flutterbye is literally perfect after all this time, and my Trickles is also absolutely fine so I guess it's hit and miss.

The one that often looks the saddest is Confetti :/ Even my MOC one isn't exactly white...

I found a Starflower at the flea market and aside from possibly slightly faded hair and having one foot partially chewed off, she's totally fine. Is it all the year 3 rainbows that age poorly? Because if it is I deeply regret only buying the Basic Fun Confetti when they were on the shelves here

I'm surprised to see no one else mentioning the year 3 (man, what was Hasbro doing that year?) seaponies. I'm not joking when I say I've seen maybe 2 in condition I'd consider collectible. Do you guys know something I don't? :silly:

Are there any nirvana ponies that have issues???

As of the Brazil ponies I have seen, I think there is a hair frizz issue w/ many of them.

It’s not what you’d consider a regular set, but the USA Party Pack is near impossible to find in good condition. It’s got a Flutter Pony, a TE that has fading hair and a nearly 100% chance of regrind, a SoSoft pony, a BBE pony with the ever popular rust-able eyes, and a Baby Sea Pony with pearl sheen that rubs off in addition to all the flaws a bath toy is subjected to.

the ever-elusive paradise estate set... i've only ever found one complete in box, and it would have cost me several organs to ship to Aus :(

My opinion may be a bit biased, as I really only go for nirvana's that need restoration; only a small percent are in good shape for Argies and Mexican's. On a positive note, some of those Greeks are *really nice.*

Mainly most Second sets for whatever the reason are hard to find in nice condition. Heres looking at you Taffy. I doubt I ever find her with nice flocking.. My confetti is in poor condition My Cherry treats at least has a nice display side. :/

Oh dear. I totally hear you on Taffy. Mine is terrible :/

On the flip, I've never had a discoloured Cherry Treats.

The set of wingers.. I think they are windy wings, I have never been about to get starry wings, cool breeze and co.

A very hard set to track down

For G-3, I would say probably the Pegasus set as they only made a few. I am having a hart time finding these out of box w/ backcard in good condition.  :hope:
