I'm on my phone so I can't see a close up of the photo, but are they ALL articulated? If so, that will be incredibly disappointing 😓 I actually think these designs are super cute and I'm totally excited to add some to my collection, but not if they only have those hideous moveable legs!

Anyone think the pom is in the pouch of the boy?

i thought it was a parakeet, but could definitely be the pom.

No, just the ones with molded hair. I think they're going to run brushables and Guardians of Harmony type toys side by side. The brushables have no articulation.

Sunny is not-- look at her back leg. She also has rooted hair.  So there seems to be 2 styles of toys.

They remind of a doll line that had colorful horses, but I can't remember what it was. I don't like the human faces or boots. Is it too much for a brand called My Little Pony, to have ponies?

ETA: Someone pointed out that they look like Shopkins horses. Which is right on the nose.

ETA: if the boy ponies have proper muzzles and real manes, I'll pick up a few.

Hmm not sure if I like the design... showed my kid and she wasn't that keen.

I suppose it would be better to save my judgement until I get to see them in real life - but so far they don't grab me.

Do you guys remember the filly funtasia flocked fakies? It might be interesting to get a flocked set.

I was a bit taken aback at first but I'm warming up. Someone in my server posted an edit of them with their eyes spaced further apart, they look much better like that. I hope that they move the eyes around a bit but I do think they look nice in other angles and I'm warming up.
Just like with the reboots, they look better with hair covering their faces.

So lo-ong body... Squere backside. Strange eyebrows. And her eyes so close... May be... Something like that can be better?

Is it typical for toy designs to change a little bit once they hit the shelves from these initial unveilings?

I definitely don't hate these designs, but I can see how they might benefit from a little sprucing up, especially their faces. But I like the general direction they're going for their bodies. I can see how they wanted to make sure they looked distinct enough from FiM, but still keep in line with the classic, chubby, MLP aesthetic. I think the feathered hooves were a brilliant touch!

Their heads look like a Dyson hand dryer.

They look much the  same as the merch art wi those questionable noses & mouths. But loving the brushable hair on Sunny!!! And I do hope they're bigger than G4s, even if it means they cost a bit more
My Mascots (so far): Twisty Tail, G2 Trixiebelle, Starcatcher, Twilight Sparkle. All variants & pictures of these are appreciated. Piccies courtesy of Griffin & Blumiere
