This is a neat little game some toy collectors play. Usually on Youtube.

You take the deadly sins and show off a figure that represents it with a short explanation.

Greed: Figure you paid most and least for.

Gluttony: Splurging, big lots, army building, etc.

Wrath: Figure you have a love-hate relationship with.

Lust: One of your most favorite figures and why.

Pride: A figure you are most proud of. This could be a reward for a real life goal, custom/commission, moc, rare variant, one you got for a killer deal etc.

Sloth: Something that takes you a while to get around to doing.

Envy: Ultimate Grail. Perhaps an unobtainable one.

Greed: Figure I paid most for is Deidara. I commissioned his awesome self for more then $100. Barring gifts, the figure I paid least for is Starcatcher. Got her at the swapmeet for a few dollars.

Gluttony: This was the biggest trade I've ever done. Half went to Obsidi. Half to me. Awesome group.

Wrath: I like some of my G4s quite a bit now, but sometimes I see their deformed, unhorsey selves next to my G1s and G3s and get irritated. Plus the toxic sub-fandom can make me feel annoyed and unhappy about buying and owning them.

Sloth: Sometimes I'm a slow shipper. Especially in the summertime, where the temp soars to over 100 degrees. I hafta walk to the post office you see and it can be pretty miserable. Because of this embarrassing situation, I've decided to stop trading for now. :blush:

I can also be slow about finishing customs.

Envy: Star Glow. She sure is hard to find!

te_fizzy_by_littlekunai_dbsmzkr-fullview.jpg
Lust: Fizzy is one of my childhood favorites and still is now. She's elegant, beautiful, unique and upbeat. Getting her back was like greeting an old friend you hadn't seen in a long time.

Pride: MO Starhopper. Love really is blind sometimes. When I found one for a good price, not only did I not give a crap about the awful rust-splosion, I didn't even notice she was sporting a mohawk. I'm proud for cleaning out her rusty body without gagging, and sent her off to be rehaired. Now restored, she's one of the jewels of my collection.

Greed: Most = Ploomette // Least = No idea I thrift most of my ponies in lots.

Gluttony: My G1 & G4 huge lots

Wrath: Amazon Exclusive Pinkie Pie because I love her so so much and I want to touch her. But I don’t want to open her packaging because it’s so beautiful.
B56D5B9A-8DA4-4753-AA83-3C7B475C4F6D.jpeg

Lust: Shady. She was always my favourite growing up and having her back in my collection is the best “splurge” I’ve made. She’s coming to the crematorium with me.
3600BBC4-EBFF-444D-BDF8-8A82CF41B2D7.jpeg

Pride: This is hard. I am proud of my entire herd, but I guess I have a soft spot for my My Pretty Pony. She’s the one elusive pony I’ve wanted the longest and I’m proud of how she turned out after several days at the pony spa.

Sloth: Cleaning/styling ponies for my collection and to post for sale. I need to fix this.

Envy: G1 - I’d really like to find my last two pearl mail order babies I need and Ember with her symbol. And for G4 I REALLY want the 4.5 style sized mane 6, princesses and Spike set. Haven Bay and Seaquestria Spike. I need them so bad. So bad.

I'm going to borrow pics from the internet for this game.

Greed: I paid $50US for Baby Splosh. I shouldn't have, but I love the Seaside babies and I got caught up in an auction.
fa9929ef3cbd49fda82d806fbce4a702.jpg

Gluttony: Toy shows, back in the early 2000's. It wouldn't have been uncommon for me to come home with at least 20 ponies and to have spent $100 (a lot at the time)

Wrath: I think it's also the G4's and their "unhorsey selves". I was very resistant to them in the beginning, but they have grown on me. I still hate most of the fan base they have amassed. Oh, and the creepy BBE ponies. I just love to hate them. They're terrible.

Lust: Butterscotch, because she was my first and you can't forget your first love.
a0bb201da94e87e03154f3b26bc250fb.jpg

Pride: I have a couple submissions. Baby Barnacle. I can't remember who made him, but it must have been my friend Emily (Violet Starshine). Also, my Dutch ponies. The Shell pony is one of my favourites. Also, her pals in the background, Heart Pony and Candy pony.

50801727_1138588692968322_5818906032893591552_n.jpg
Sloth: De-flocking. I had a mostly deflocked Lickity Split from about 15 years ago and I mostly finished her yesterday. I don't think there is any hope for Wind Whistler, because her flocking just WON'T come off!
51348046_1147343558779321_6329556465904254976_n.jpg


Envy: Ultimate Grail. How can I have just one? So many. I want the Seaside babies, sweetie babies, hair do ponies for start. I love the Brazilian ponies too.

I'm guilty of Sloth most of all because I'm so lazy I can't even find the strength to steal pics of the web. I'm just so tired all the time now. I blame Action Hank. He probably has a voodoo doll of me.

So lemme think...

Greed: You guys will laugh, but I've never spent more than $12 on one Pony. That was for Gypsy, and she was a gift for a friend. I really want her myself, but she was my friend's grail, soooo... I bought her. And I've paid less than a quarter on many a Pony at a thrift store, but they were never anything rare, just cute.

Gluttony: I am guilty of having loads of McD's Happy Meal Ponies. They come in every lot I ever bought, so I have gobs of them. And I've given loads away. They just keep multiplying. Which is no surprise, Ponies left to their own devices in the dark closet... babies will be made. :D

Wrath: Hmmm. Probably any of the boys, because I have so few, but I really, really want them. But I can't make myself pay that much, because there's so much else my money has to go for. Like critter food. For some reason, my animals all demand to eat every day, the greedy things.

Lust: Pinky Pie, any of them. Because much of her happiness seems to be sham to conceal an inner pain, and her antics to make people laugh belie the fact that her smile is pasted on. Or at least how the G4 character 'reads' to me. So I buy every Pinky I see. All of them. She's my army Pony because she's pretty much me. Laughing on the outside so no one knows what's going on inside.

Pride: My 'best' Pony would be G1 Minty that ology sent me. My original had been bought for me by my now deceased brother Ken, then she was stolen when I was moving, along with about 200 others in a tub. ology sent me a replacement, and she means as much to me as the original, because my sweet friend wanted to help right a wrong. I love Minty more than any, because she is the very symbol of Pony Friendship and the spirit of giving so apparent here in the trading Post.

Sloth: Spa days. I haven't even brushed the hair of any new 'old' Ponies I've bought in over a year.

Envy: Mimic. Because every time I'm going to luck into one on the cheap, someone knocks me outta the way, sometimes in very sneaky underhanded ways. She's one of the few I'd pay good money for, merely because I love her colours and the parrot mark. And I suppose she's something of a bragging right, and it'd be nice to have one Pony that people go "Oooooo" over.

Ok

Greed: custom by dark horse cost most
IMG_20170704_223846.jpg
Least little McDonald's rainbow dash was given to me by a 3 year old.
IMG_20190202_201919.jpg

Gluttony: there were some big lots... a nearly complete U.S. g1 collection, and the power ponies with spike!
IMG_20190202_200731.jpg
I should also add my love of slh g3's:ponylove:
IMG_20190202_201616.jpg
IMG_20190202_201739.jpg
IMG_20190202_201748.jpg

Wrath: all g2's. I'm not sure if I want them or not. This little cutie is the only holdout.
IMG_20190202_200810.jpg

Lust: forget-me-not... She was my favorite to play with (and, apparently, break) as a kid
IMG_20190202_200957.jpg

Pride: the first ever incarnation of my ponysona shadow whispers she was the first commission I acquired.
IMG_20190202_201347.jpg

Sloth: I don't really have an answer for this one... o_O

Envy: A purple rapunzel! :ponylove:

Least paid as she was freeIMG_20190202_202112.jpg
Gluttony: love the pink!
IMG_20190202_202349.jpg

Wrath: none, Eevee is an equal opportunity pony lover

Lust: favorite at this time, because, well, look at her!
IMG_20190202_202041.jpg

Pride: most proud of, because she made it herself
IMG_20190202_202711.jpg

Sloth: cleaning, styling, organizing... etc

Envy: no answer for this one as well.... too many to love. Maybe the g4 fillies.

Never more than $12 is insane. I was pretty good, until recently. I just spent $70 on Ice Crystal... I'm usually quite reasonable about only buying cheap ponies, but I'm anxious to complete my G1's.
I share the love of Pinkie Pie. She's just nuts and there are some neat Pinkie toys. The talking/walking one with the head that bobs in my fav.

Ok

Thanks. We mostly just have the customs left since they don't really have a great resale value and we do love the ones we have.

Here are my sins!

Greed: Rapunzel for both actually. She's the figure I've paid the most for but I technically got her for free. http://mlptp.net/index.php?threads/free-rapunzel.112720/

IMG_3388.JPG

Gluttony: Mommy & Baby and Sweet Scoops, was keeping my eye out for them for a while and they both went up for sale in the same week. I felt guilty for a minute but then was like, oh' you're going to have to get them eventually might as well just bite the bullet! Never did tell my husband about it LOL

IMG_3389.JPG
IMG_3390.JPG

Wrath: I'm a strict G1 collector but I LOVE all things holiday. So I just had to make room in my collection for some of the Christmas-y G3's!

IMG_3391.JPG

Lust: Feliz Navidad, my first and favorite grail. I got her at a time when money was tight and I really had to stretch to make it happen. I still remember I cried when she arrived!

IMG_3392.JPG

Pride: Ladybird, total random luck. She came up as a BIN or best offer years ago, I remember just on a whim making a really low offer just to see how low they'd go with a counter offer. Never for a second thinking they'd accept my offer but they did! I was stunned.

IMG_3393.JPG

Sloth: Organizing accessories. This pile has been on the floor for a while now. I actually forced myself to work on it this weekend and made good progress but oh' the humanity!

IMG_3394.JPG

Envy: When they dismantled the Blackpool diorama some of the pieces were available for sale. I would've paddled to England on a homemade raft to have gotten one of those! Ugh!

There are pictures from when I first brought them to show you, there on my camera. I think they were still small when I took those pictures.

Now I have paid more than 12 for new playsets (like the G4 Seacastle, but I had a coupon, got it on clearance for $20, so no complaints) and for boxed sets with many ponies in them. I just won't allow myself to spend more on individual as a rule. I just spend too much elsewhere. We put out over 10K for animal feed/supplies each year, so that's where most of my 'mad' money goes. I'm a little ashamed of how much I spend in fact. But I'm committed now. Not like I can tell the animals to pack up and find new digs. :D

Now when Mimic comes along, if I have money in hand... the rule will be broken. Same for a good Wigwam or Gypsy.

I saw a few good looking and nicely priced Wigwams on eBay this week. Just saying. ;)

In a rush of giddy selfishness I just went and bought myself a Wigwam for 21 with shipping. Broke my rule, but I thought, dangit, I deserve a treat. So there. :D
