Draculaura's alright, I guess, but yeah what's with the director theme? o_O How odd.

Omg I LOVE Toralei!!! She's amazing, definitely need to get her.

Twyla's sweet but somehow doesn't quite do it for me, not sure why. Her accessories are really cute though.

Not just the combs, but some other accessories were reused across lines too. IIRC Hasbro used a boombox accessory for both MLP and Jem, and of course Rama Llama was released in both lines too. And they reused a Petite Pony playset for LPS too.

Kingsley is the best :lovey:

I don't actually have any other Friends/Pals (yet!) but I love them all, they're so CUTE... I wish the other gens had had pony friends ;^; My other two faves are Hoppy and Woolly, but they're all so darling.

I could see that being the case. I've seen Moochick both spelt as that and as "Moochik" in official documents, for example.

Oh Tirek was in use in the fandom for years, but I don't recall seeing it used anywhere else officially :p

No idea who the dragon and wizard-y looking dude are. (but I like them!)

First, they’re not labeled at all. Ponies are labeled with “Hasbro” and a date, so even the most unknowledgeable reseller can correctly ID a legit pony and figure out the generation. With accessories, you really have to know what you’re looking at. And they also tend to get mixed in with the accessories of other toys, so that makes things much harder. 

I've never thought of it like that before, but now I suddenly understand why most modern toylines plaster their logo all over the accessories :O I mean, like...

This could be from pretty much any toy line

No doubt where this one came from, though!

Huh. It looks kinda tacky to have logos all over accessories but it really does make them easier to identify, come to think of it...

Honestly, none ^^; I just don't like how the gimmick looks, and then there's their aging issues...

The G4 blind bags aren't too bad though :)

Star Maker's attack is the best :lmao: but I like "Tuxedo La Smoking Bomber" too. Jacket the jacket jacket. Heh.

(Sorry for the late reply, been out of town for a few days)

Ponyfan - thanks so much for sharing that! I love obscure stuff like this, especially if it's about the best MLP cartoon :lovey:

Interesting that they spelt it "Tirek" here, I don't think I've seen that spelling used on anything official before (for the G1 character, I mean - I know that's how FiM spelt it for their Tirek character). I do wonder if the various differences/oddities were them working off an earlier version of the story or if they just goofed!

Oooh that's so annoying about the Chinese vs Japanese name thing!! I would totally understand it if they did that just for the dub, that would make sense, but:
So yeah. Changing things when you can hear it's meant to be something else is...not great.
*nod* This!!

Ponyfan, I was thinking about the Moon Stick when I typed that xD I didn't know they'd actually changed it for the most recent translation though. I guess I can understand where they're coming from, but I'd rather they just left it as Stick :/ Yeah it sounds silly (frankly I think the old dub name "Crescent Moon Wand" is nicer), but it's what the author intended (plus it's hardly the only silly name/term in Sailor Moon :P) so... *shakes head* It just feels unprofessional to me, making stuff sound "fancier" is the sort of thing I expect to see from fan translations, not official ones...

The playsets would probably be best to take to the meet, especially Paradise Estate, since those would be a pain in the neck (not to mention expensive!!) to ship so you might get more interest if selling in person :)

Good luck!

In theory, the UK, though I've not seen them here - only down south.

I haven't seen them here since before Christmas :( The shop I found mine in seems to have only gotten one shipment and they were long gone by the next time I got over there.

omg those romanizations X'D

That's so annoying that Crunchyroll doesn't work though :/

Sometimes English in Japanese needs to be tidied up to make it make sense. But sometimes it doesn't.

I can understand it if they're at least fixing grammatical errors or something - it's annoying, but I *get* it - but it drives me nuts when they're just straight-up making stuff up :p

Another one was Sugar Sugar Rune (fansubs not official, but still) translating "stick" as "wand". Yeah, I agree, that sounds better, and if it was a dub/manga translation/anything without the original audio I'd wholeheartedly support it... but it's just so silly reading "wand" when you can clearly hear the girls yelling "stick!" :silly:

 :lol: I love that pic Zapper!

Oh wow, that sucks about the Fang Club :( I understand if they're having troubles but surely it wouldn't kill them to just pop in and go "No updates yet but we're working on it" or whatever? I hope it gets sorted out soon.
