Hey guys, whilst I was sorting through my ponies for selling the other day I noticed the two butterscotches I have are different. The one I'm confused about is stamped the same 1982 etc but her body and hair are paler, her eyes are a more red brown and her markings are also slightly different! I can't seem to find anything about her anywhere. I'd you could help that would be AMAZING <3 thanks in advance

I can't see your picture link. Facebook says I don't have permission to view that page.

Butterscotch with concave feet was released as a mail order in the US for several years. During that time, Hasbro very likely had more than one "batch" made by their factories. Those different batches often have slight variations in colors. This is most often seen in symbol paint, but it's possible to have slight differences in plastic, hair, or eyes, as well. (This is the same reason we see 50 slightly different "regular" Peachies).

Butterscotch with concave feet was also released in the UK with the Gymkhana playset. I think that one has slightly different colored symbols, but again not a big enough difference to qualify as a variant.

Unless there are more distinct differences, such as markings on the feet, eye paint shape (particularly in the eyeliner), or symbol differences (size & shape, not just color), I think you have a regular Butterscotch.

Ah, I see what you mean. One's butterflies have more "round" wings & the other one has more "square" wings. I checked my collection & my UK Gymkhana Butterscotch has a paler body, but her symbols are the same as my US mail order one. Both ponies have the same markings under their feet? My Indian Butterscotch has square winged butterflies, but Indian ponies are marked "Funskool" & "made in India" under their feet. If the feet are marked Hong Kong on both ponies, it could still be a batch variation since Butterscotch was produced for so long. At some point they may have changed the symbol stencil.
