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

It's not unheard of! it is entirely possible these designs could get refined a little before they're released. I imagine they're probably at least mostly finalized, though.

Their heads look like a Dyson hand dryer.

This might be the most specific insult I have read on here in a long time :lol:

i'm wondering if these are "movie" toys and we'll get more typical small brushables in 2022.

I can't get over the dachshund-like body, wonky legs and huge head on that thin neck. With G2, at least everything was in proportion.

Maybe in different, more animated poses this will look better? Like the G2 Morning Glory walking pose.

I wonder if the rest of the extended plot (leaked after an early test screening, months ago) turns out to be true as well, since the names are.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

G3.5 head on G2 body. Hard pass for me.
YES! 

It's odd.  I may get used to it. I like the way it looks in CGI so much better than the actual products though :(   I am not buying anything straight out from the release... but I may warm up to it.  They are just super long.... like weiner dogs!

I do appreciate that they didn't just go straight for the GIRLY colours  - there is pink, but it's balanced with other colours.

Hopefully there will be lots of characters and not just 3 or 4 ad naseum. Kids don't like buying a bajillion of the same thing.

Well. I collect orange ponies (and sometimes yellow ponies, and white ponies too, um...) and I don't automatically hate these like I did G4. For one, I like the eyebrows. I love the hooves and feathering or whatever is going on there. The accessories look cute and I just noticed that Sunny has those star dangle do-dads the Celestial G1s would have had in her hair. Neat.

The animation doesn't look bad at all. 

Hopefully it is just the angle, but the toys (specifically the brushable) look too piggy.  They kind of look like Calico Critters/Sylvanian Families pigs with different eyes.  lol!

I like the G2 body, but not sure about the heads... I was hoping for something more horsey. :(

Agreeing that these would look better if the eyes were placed just a liiiiittle differently (crossover/pseudo-retro ponies deja vu, anyone?), but it doesn’t bother me too much. That edit really perfects the placement, though.

I don’t want to rehash all my thoughts from the design thread, so I’m just going to say that I’m very happy overall with these. The necks are a little long, and the heads are a little too human for my taste, but most of the G4 qualities I disliked are gone. No bellbottom legs, no Powerpuff Girls eyes, no beak-shaped noses... I’m content. XD

I’m a little sad that they’re still making the male characters look different from the females, but only G2 ever avoided that. Horses have basically zero sexual dimorphism, so it just seems silly to me. :shrug: That’s a really minor gripe, though.

They have very human hairlines as opposed to manes, but I don’t mind it. It opens the door for more hairstyles and hairplay, which is probably a smart move toywise.

The one thing bothering me... We have nothing to determine the SCALE of these toys. Plus, I want to see what brushables are going to look like for Izzy and the pink pegasus (has she been named?).

Also, just for the customizers sake, I hope the rooted head is a squishy doll head and not a hard plastic dome like G4.5. With a new face-up they could have potential to look G2ish.

Whatever they make them from, I just want the head and body to be the same material. I can’t go through the head/body mismatch nightmare of early G4 again. I just can’t. :yikes:

Yes please! I like how these new main ponies for G5 look right now, and I don't want to get as tired of them as I got with the Mane 6. I think they should maybe only give them two (main brushable) toys a year, filling out the rest of the brushables each toy reset with different, new ponies each time. Have it be more similar to pre-Core 7 G3 where there are ponies that get released more (Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Sunny Daze, Sparkleworks, etc), but most releases are new characters.
