Bump with new updates

Pony Corral / Re: Is G4 a thing?
« on: May 15, 2024, 11:57:50 PM »

Not that people don't collect G4 (that's 90% of what I collect) but the brony culture from G4 has faded a lot. I wish G5 inspired as much activity as G4 did

That really depends where you are. Where I live if the brony fandom is still very alive and kicking. Several meetups a year on location, bar and even a camping. And once a year a brony convention. G5 is also being embraced by that fandom. Ofcourse people come and people go but that also happens with the earlier gens.

Online most of them can be found on chat servers like Discord. Forums are simply old fashioned.

Don't believe the rumours. G4 is still a thing :) There are still conventions where you can buy G4 things either official or fanmade.
I collect them besides G1 to G3 but not all the merch like you would do with the older gens.

Only the first 6 ponies were made which makes them hard to find. And high priced.

Yeah, I wish Norway got more points too.
Switzerland is a good deserved winner. But with the after taste The Netherlands could have won too. I hope for an automatic final place next year.
After ESC I always listen to some songs on Youtube for a while. Watching the original videos.

I also liked the interval acts Benjamin Ingrosso and Alcazar. Only to realize there are a lot more Swedish acts I would have loved to see. Like Army of Lovers. But they have a song called Israelism so it must have been a choice not to ask them. So Ace of Base, Neneh Cherry or Leila K would have been good too.

The top 3 bets over here say Croatia, Israel and Switzerland. If I have to pick one of these 3 it will be Switzerland.
As said in my previous post, a lot is based on taste.

Well, I live in The Netherlands so you can imagine I have this wtf feeling what is going to happen tomorrow. We will have to wait and see.

At the moment I really have no clue who to point as a winner. The contestants are very diverse and I think it will be a matter of taste. I thought Finland was funny, Norway was good and most of the countries of the 2nd semi finals were good. The 1st semi finals didn't had a lot of songs that were interesting.
But aside of this I like to watch it. I was at  the 2019 one in IsraĆ«l which was a great experience.

$91 dollars is very crazy.
Yes there have been some exclusive G3 long hair released on this side of the pond and Petite Petunia was one of them. Up here she is not hard to find.
As for the price for your side I would say about $40 because of being rare in the USA but not abroad. So would your buyer do the hassle of buying abroad or from you :)

Trader & Shipping Support / Re: Returned package from Brazil
« on: May 07, 2024, 07:05:04 AM »
So the package arrived back today.
No note from the Brazil Post why. But the Dutch label wasn't filled in either. Yeah underneath a sticker something with address (address is correct). I contacted customer service. First through chat but that person told me to contact Brazil post. That's BS. So 2nd attempt I called and this person was more helpful. Shipping will be refunded to me with the advise to ship it tracked and insured. So an investigation can be started if this happens again. With the note that South American mail has a reputation when it comes to mail.
That's not a lot extra shipping costs so I will pay those.
Because of the speculation it could have been the contents I suggested the buyer to swap Diamond Mint and the Wonderbolt for something else he wanted too but package was already on its way.

Up here Miniso sells the Care Bears. Seems to look legit with original tag and heart on the bum.

Well, I recently had to fill out a Customs form for a package to the EU. Because its contents were hand-made, I called them hand-crocheted figures. With vintage MLP I suppose we can get away with vintage collectibles, but toys are an issue on the list (which I looked up) as we're no longer under the CE bracket. Just a wee heads-up for sellers; if you want to send to the EU, collectibles is better than toys, especially when the customer is an adult.

Vintage and collectible mostly means "valuable" to customs. And if the value on the package is low and marked as a gift chance is package will be opened up to check. Where I live I have to pay import costs.
So when I ship abroad I try not to mention that. Unless it was something very expensive. But then it will be shipped insured ofcourse.

UK Ponycon is still affordable if it comes to G1 ponies :) But I also noticed not everyone wants to pay a lot for the more rare ponies.
