Honestly - as a lifelong G1 collector - I can understand that perspective.

If I didn't grow up with G1 and collect them when they were common and easy to get at second hand sales, I probably wouldn't have so many now. 90% of my G1 collection - in terms of actual ponies - was put together before 2001. So yeah.

I think selling and buying in general was better back when Ebay was predominately private people selling stuff and more geared up to people selling to other collectors rather than some random person who found a pony in their attic and want 300$ for it even though it's dog eared and broken.

I can't speak for any local experiences you might have, but online sellers shipping internationally has always been an issue and there have always been people who will somehow find a way to make it your fault that you happen to live overseas. It is more complicated than it used to be to ship overseas, which hasn't helped, but the attitude sometimes people give over it is...a shame.

I actually don't know what G1s were or were not sold in your part of Europe, and I'm not sure if anyone's done any serious research into it. That may be a factor though. But there is also a culture of overpricing, usually by people who don't know what they are selling and want to make a quick profit.

Thanks for the comments!

Thank you for your answer, Gator!  :)

I just won an ebay auction that had two complete snail rockers, and a baby pony float and a bunch of other pony play set parts.


This also has two fairy tale bird perches and a pony pen part that was part of the smooshes line.

I may get some hate for this one but unfortunately I feel like collecting G1's is the least fun and the hardest compared to other gens.
I feel like it may be more to my location (probably the generation 1 was the least available here so not many people had them and even less people have them still) as well as the fact that I just recently started seriously collecting so now there's not as much toys going around as there was a couple years ago.

Finding G1's locally is hard enough, finding them at decent price is even harder and then trying to actually buy them from the sellers...
For some reason a lot of the sellers that list G1's happen to not be pleasant and often enough I will go empty handed because they just are not willing to sell them for whatever reason. And honestly every time I managed to order a lot with G1's in it I stress out if the seller will even send the package to me (sometimes at the last second they cancel my order).
It only seems to be the issue with this generation specifically (similar situations happened with different gens but maybe once or twice).
Just the whole issue kinda sours my experience with this generation and makes me feel a bit upset :sad:

hope everyone had a blast!  I would love to know if possible to support ya'll if I can still purchase a tradewinds plush and HQG1C figure :-)

All the ponies accidently got put in my storage pod. As of now they won't be available until next convention, since we cannot access them.

Dates for next convention will be announced very soon! I hope you can make it to one in the future!
