I like flocked ponies. I know they can be disasters if they're not taken care of but something about them works for me. I'd love to try making my own someday.

I don't care for the sister style bodies (are we still calling them that?) The longer legs just make me think of other toy lines.

Don't care for G4. It's not for me. I pretty much exist in G1 world though a few g2s and g3s are appealing to me.

Wish I could say I don't get the hype for certain ponies but I REALLY want Icy Crystal haha I know mimic is always fluxing price wise. Not sure who else is coveted RN aside from Punz (though I know a lot of people don't care for her anymore)

I'm excited about the idea of new classic style ponies although I'm not sure yet how I feel about reproducing the old ones. I can see this causing issues with honesty during sales and I'd much rather see new fun ideas. The old line was limited by what they thought was marketable to little girls at the time but now there's a chance to expand since I think G1 is largely older fans or younger people who picked it up from older fans etc.

Probably not unpopular but I don't like the hard plastic types of toys that are super popular right now will all kinds of toy lines.

Oh wow!

Taffeta:
The BF retro ponies aren't really identical to their G1 counterparts, but even if they were, their hooves are marked with Basic FUn and the date, so it's not really so easy to scam someone out of something. If someone's selling a pony and it's not clear, it should be possible to ask for the hoof markings.

The BF release finally brought Medley, Glory etc to the UK after a very long wait (we've been waiting for them since the 1980s, when they wrote them into our comics but didn't sell them here). Whatever happens with the rest of the release, I'm happy with what we've had because of that.

But my unpopular opinion is that I don't think we need them to make every existing G1 pony. And I don't care if we get Mimic and company in the slightest. I'd genuinely rather have Powder and Skyflier and that's 100%.

I didn't grow up with SS ponies, they didn't exist here, so I will always consider the movie star versions the original versions of the characters who exist in both forms. But I do love the SS ponies. If you get a nice one, they are gorgeous :)

Yeah the repros aren't exact 1:1 replicas:

The ones I was really worried would get mistaken for the originals were the small accessories like the pets, but that turned out to be a moot point since the repro pets used Strawberry Shortcake molds instead. (at least Twinkles did... which was the playset they cancelled, was it the Show Stable w/ Brandy?)

I'm not that bothered about them remaking Every Single G1 Ever, either. I'd rather have something completely new :B But I do love the Basic Funs and I'm happy they exist, I just wish their distribution wasn't so messed-up. I never did find the Bow-Tie wave :(

Taffeta:
I only saw the Bow Tie wave in stores here in Sutton and Epsom. Literally just those two places down when I lived in South London. And I think Bow Tie I only saw in Epsom. My sister bought one online, but I bought one when I was down there in January 2020, which was the last time I was back in the area.

Even the other toymasters around that area, plus the John Lewis stores, didn't have them.

I've never seen them up here in the midlands. Nor have I seen the CJ wave here, but I've not been out into town for a while thanks to COVID.
