Guys, I am sorry, but browsing much (if not all) sources of info for MLP G4 merch, especially for blind bags 'cause I am collecting them, I saw very optimistic IMHO tradition to name toys, that differs from the majority as "prototypes" or "factory errors". Honestly, I am new to Hasbro merch and know nothing 'bout their distribution policy, but living not the first day on earth, I can suggest that no company with reputation will allow to leak to open market so many prototypes and/or errors. Especially when we are talking about child toys, which have strict hygienic, quility control and etc. norms. I tryed to ask a few collectors and just a people who have some of those toys - nobody knows anything. BUT we hypothesized that maybe, just MAYBE, those "prototypes" are actually mass-produced toys, intended to be selled on internal Chinese market, much cheaper, and thus with lower quility norms, "smelly" plastic/paint, etc. (maybe Chinese goverment norms for child toys are not so strict?) with OR without Hasbro's consent. And quirky re-sellers just buying those internal Chinese toys and sells them all over the world on ebay and etc. online stores? This theory explains much of the facts. BUT the main reason I concerned about this at all is an answer - does those fakies, as I name them, or "prototypes" as soft-naming the most of you, are worth collecting at all? If you can go to China, and buy a bunch of toys, that all have such big production-spreading qualities, so that each of them can be considered as unique, then it is not collector fun, what do you think? I guess to know if this suggestion is real, anypony must just fly to China and go to a big toy store/market there . Somepony? Anypony?
