(Sorry for the clutter haha, this is my Five Below haul from last July and the only pic I have of that shirt ^^;)

That's the Moon tarot card on the shirt. How funny, it's not quite the card I would associate with Firefly (maybe Shady?) :)

Now I want an entire tarot deck with MLP designs !

So it's basically about the size of a G1 minus the body?  What's the point then...? Pass.

Look at the shorts I found at Walmart! Wave Runner! I'm buying two. One to wear, and one to turn into a patch.


Nice overall, but it's bit of a pet peeve of mine when an image hasn't been completely cleaned up. The fill between the forelock and the forehead is all I see once I noticed it :)

I think the Furbobs count. I want them too!

They came so close! Prototypes and everything

this page specifies that it's from her uk variant manufactured in china, which is supported by this listing (see the front of the box)
and i guess this leaflet uses that dress pattern, which is pretty neat.

in terms of other country variants, i think they're all on the wiki.

Okay I have to point this out:

I don't care for G5, but as for G1 I think it's blasphemous that we never got a Moochick figure  :rant:

I never got 'round to it but I've always wanted to customize a poseable Happy doll from Snow White into a Moochick; with some minor resculpting it shouldn't be too hard I think. He seems to come very close already as is.

I'm just going to post this here instead of starting a new thread for such a tiny bit of info, since it's related to BF, hope that's okay.

Hasbro's latest earnings call mentions "We saw positive early results in Q1 from LITTLEST PET SHOP, now manufactured and distributed by Basic Fun." No word of MLP in the entire transcript. Bit strange, since retro G1 has been going for 5(?) years now. They did say that "Hasbro is a Games, IP and Toy Company in that order"

It's as if MLP doesn't exist anymore :/

Interesting that POP used the G5 mlp logo for G4 characters.

I like the styling head! The sculpt is really nice; cute muzzle.

This better be of the same size as those large barbie styling heads though, otherwise it misses the point of just going for a head a bit.

Carrehz, do they explicitly mention the DV/Ponyland link in MLP and Friends?

Return of Tambelon

Grogar: "Exactly as I planned. Today Dreamvalley, tomorrow all of Ponyland"

But on balance, its success is something that MLP is going to struggle to overcome or match. I actually did wonder how Hasbro would continue after the FIM phenomenon, because whatever they released wouldn't be able to match up to it.

On top of that, FIM's success hasn't completely waned yet; merch continues to come out to this day! MLP Merch just posted a nice overview of new stuff, and frankly, it looks better than what's on that shelf.

I think that as long as third parties are willing to pay the liscensing fees, we will see FIM merch. It's just part of the overal MLP brand, like G1 is to this day. Maybe Hasbro sees whatever gen is current as just a branch of a larger tree, and not as the main focus anymore? It's all just a bit messy IMO.

If they do make babies, the buggy is an absolute must as well  :inlove:

Definitely Petites!

That would be a hit today i'm sure; perfect blind bag sized, and the small playsets wouldn't break the bank :-)

Dream Beauties was a nice concept, but the execution was lacking. The hard plastic is no fun, and the wings were just tacked on.

Question for the people in the countries where the blind boxes have been released: how well are they doing you reckon? (I'm keeping my hopes up for a 1986 movie themed set!)

I still hope Basic Fun reconsiders axing the flutters. I was thinking that - if sold separately instead of in a 3-pack - these may have been the best selling set of the retro line: I'm going by the assumption that many collectors would have picked up several ponies to get replacement wings for their vintage flutters. Thoughts?

I kind of hope Hasbro hands off the next gen of MLP to them as well.

Me too. If Hasbro is unwilling to up their game when it comes to quality and design then I do want them to pivot to just owning and (re)creating the IP and licensing it out to other companies, like they seem to have in mind.

Kind of like how Disney handles its IP's, you know. Sure, Disney makes some of its own toys, but most of what's out there is created by licensees and they are all giving it a bit of their own spin. Then again, it could become a jumbled mess as well?
