Can anyone tell me about this pony?
« on: November 15, 2021, 08:05:25 PM »
Hi friends! Yesterday my husband and I visited a flea market and I found an incredibly interesting G3 pony that I've never seen before. Unfortunately, I can't for the life of me figure out how to add a photo to my post, so I'm hoping I can describe her with enough details.

She has a light blue body, with a black, painted on "bodysuit". Her mane and tail are solid pink, and she has these clear "shoes" glued to the bottom of her hooves. Her eye is black with black dots decorating underneath it, along with blue flowers. Her bodysuit is also decorated with gold flowers and a symbols that sort of looks like an octopus.

I don't think she's been customized by a collector since the designs look printed on her, not painted, and I also don't think she's a fakie since she has Hasbro printed on the bottom of her shoe. 

Anyway, I hope someone knows which pony I'm referring to, and who she is. If she is real I'm sure she has a really interesting story behind her! Thanks!

Yes! That's her!!! :biggrin:

Was she sold at regular retailers? I'm super curious about The My Little Pony Project now and I'm going to have to look that up.

She's not really the type of pony I usually collect, but she was so unique I absolutely couldn't leave her behind. I'm so relieved she's not a fakie!

Aw, yay, Junko pony! She's gorgeous :) I love mine :lovey: Congrats on such a cool find!

Wasn't she an SDCC exclusive? I don't remember how I got mine, but I know art ponies were comic con exclusives - I just dont know if all of them were, since I were only ever interested in a few of them x)

I think she might have ended up in some collector stores but I'm not 100% since I never saw her in a store in the UK. Mine came from the US I think, because I actively went looking for a loose one rather than a MIB. I know some of the other special G3s were sold in stores like Forbidden Planet here but I am not sure about this one.

She's really pretty though :) Congrats.

Yes, that's Junko Mizuno. She was a SDCC exclusive, but later extras were sold online, which is how I got mine ^_^

If I recall correctly, the pony released at SDCC was actually an adaptation of a pony by the manga artist Junko Mizuno which was featured at an event where celebrities designed their own pony to be auctioned for charity.

Original version by Junko Mizuno:

There's also links on that page to other pony designs done for the auction, if you're curious.
