    I'm parting with about 1/3 of my collection -- including some rares (and maybe super-rares). I've been gone from this community for about 6 years because I wrapped up my collecting as I began college and started a business. I wonder if anyone here that I used to know is still around... :)

    Anyway, lots has changed since "my day," I see that G1s can be quite hard to come by on eBay now...ponies that used to be sold by the dozens now only have a few listings! So sad. Anyway, I'd like to avoid eBay because of the fees, but I also feel like that venue has the "bidding war" thing going for it, where a pony might sell for more than on a forum. Do people still collect G1s anyway?

    Thank you!

    Hi there! I absolutely remember you--welcome back! :)

    I would start selling here, because Ebay fees have gotten insane. They now take about 1/3 of what you make, through fees, which is really disheartening as a seller. G1's are as in demand as they have ever been, that hasn't changed one bit ;)

    Hey you!! So glad to see a familiar face!!! :p

    I'm SO glad that G1s are still popular, becaues I felt immense sadness last night that they might be "fading into history." I got very teary because they mean so much to me. I'm keeping all of my favorites and parting with a handful that I don't feel I need anymore. :)

    This familiar face is still buying G1's, for sure! ;)

    They haven't faded one bit, I'm happy to say. Just this past week, they re-released the original 6 in 35th anniversary packaging! Collectors have been in a FRENZY to get them!
