I too saw some of them at TRU. The singing ones are pretty big. Almost the size of the deco pets. Oh well. I wish I liked them more. I would have loved the Singing pets in a G2 style. So yes, I agree. Weird they are getting bigger and MLP G4 are getting smaller.

Glad I saw them in person. The chibi-ness of G2 is what grabbed me. The G3 are more in the Bratz style.

Thanks for sharing the pics @Rika_of_Thunder! :)
:biggrin: >_<^.^

These are pretty cute! I used to collect G2s when I was younger (end of elementary school? Does that make me seem really young? I'm 17), but stopped. The rabbit in the first post is really cute, I love the little stars in the ear. The puppy is also adorable, and I like the seal too. They remind me of the G2s just enough to bring up memories, but they're also really unique.

I bought a pile of G2s this past year, my first LPS. They were for a swap when I realized my partner was not into them, and now I have them :P Anyways, the chinchilla, deer, and cats are my fav (of course the dragons too).

I think this style is cute too!! They remind me of Lisa Frank animals, all colorful and "mini" cute. But the mouse is kinda freaking me out... it's eyes look a bit... homicidal..


I wish I could collect LPS! I just don't have the money for this AND MLP sadly lol.

This refresh actually pulled me back to LPS- well and the babies :)  :blush:  (so I approve a lot, lol)

The restyle reminds me of the vintage Dakin dream pets---- from WAY back.... my mom had a dachshund and the first time I saw the dachshund from this new series, I was immediately thrown back to childhood.  the more I researched, the more I saw influences in the styles.

I find the whole LPS G3 situation quite interesting. Some G2 collector are quite put off by G3. Others like the change. With the change, new people are being drawn into collecting them. I wonder what the end result will be for LPS.
:biggrin: >_<^.^

It's similar with any toy line that has a faithful following that goes through a revamp....the real telling thing will be the cartoon.....if its anywhere near as catchy as FIM........  Whoo boy!

Some G3 singles showed up at the Fred Meyers stores here.   I like some of the animals, but not all of them... which is good cause it means I won't go completely nuts trying to buy them all.   Of the singles, I mostly liked the bunny and the peacock, but only bought the peacock.   He looks really good with FS Celestia and Luna.

Dat chinchilla and bunny. <3
I don't even collect these but they're sooo cute. It's definitely those giant animu eyes that really get to me.

Ooh, I am liking G3. I used to collect G1 when I was little but was never a fan of G2. Those huge watery eyes creep me out.
