ID/PC G4 ??Holly Blue and Stella Bella??
« on: June 08, 2024, 08:30:51 AM »
I am organizing my G4's getting ready to list several of them for sale. I came across these two. On my old master list, I have them listed as Holly Blue and Stella Bella. From a search of old threads, it appears they were exclusives to conventions/shows. But I don't remember how I got them because I never attended one of them, and I want to make sure they are genuine before I price them for sale. There are no consistent listings for either that are current. Both of them appear to have hair that is a bit thin, but I think they came like this because it doesn't seem to be falling out and they've never been played with, only displayed and stored. Can anyone tell me any more about either of these?

Holly Blue was given during Uk Ponycon 2012. People were able to order her upfront.
The other pony also looks like a Tao Bao pony cross Sunny Rays/Lyra Heartstring.
No idea on value these.

these are "Lyra Rays" and "Trixieshy" aka "Holly Blue", they're Taobao oddball/hybrid/factory second ponies made up from the wedding set (there was also a Pinkie Pie/Cherry Berry mashup but that one seems to be rarer). I believe these were ponies that were put together by factory workers specifically to sell on Taobao and similar sites (there were way too many of these two popping up for me to believe they were entirely accidental :p).

UK Ponycon ordered a bunch of the Trixies and used her as their con exclusive for one year (I can't remember the year off-hand, I'd check but I'm rushing atm), they dubbed her "Holly Blue" which is a type of butterfly :) Some vendors at the con also sold their own stock of her (and Lyra Rays) that they'd ordered from Taobao themselves.

Never heard the name "Stella Bella" for Lyra Rays or seen her used as a con exclusive so can't comment on that

Not sure about price/value since the prices for the Taobao hybrids seems to have gone bonkers in the last few years :drunk:

If I look at the old topics it looks like there was a contest for those names. Maybe that was more an American thing.
And yes I remember a lot of vendors had Taobao ponies mash ups on their tables. Not all in good condition.
