Greeting all MLP fans! I am new to this forum and I am new to collecting. I grew up with MLP and had many of them when I was little, but sadly lost almost all but Milky Way over the years. I now have two daughters and I started buying them MLP G4s that are currently in stores. I began thinking about my old ponies and got on ebay and found loads of them...so now I am turning into a nut, attempting to buy MLP from G1. Of course I can only do a little at a time, and have been currently buying the Big Brother Ponies as I never had any of them when I was little... So I was curious if people could let me know how I am doing as far as the buying process...I bought each pony for between $10-$15...Thanks



Steamer has vibrant pink hair, some rubbing to his symbol and small area of light regrind.



Salty has a couple small areas of discoloration, no pony cancer and small amount of symbol scratch on NDS.



Mommy Bright Bouquet symbols are all perfect, she has a small slit on her hairline otherwise nice.



Daddy Bright Bouquet has nothing wrong with him as far as I can tell. Got him and Baby Bright Bouquet for $15...Baby Bouquet has some chewed marks on her hooves but looks good overall...

Welcome! I'm new here too, hehe. :) To me those ponies look nice! I don't have any of the male ponies, but I'd love some eventually! I've recently come into possession of some beat up old G1's that need some TLC so I'm working on that!

Thanks, I am looking around to buy more Big brothers and their accessories, but I am so worried about getting ripped off. I got all of the ponies I have right now for between $10 and $15 each, is that a fair price? (I did get a pretty mint looking daddy and decent babby bright bouqet for $15 which I thunk was a good deal...but I don't really now)....:scratch:

Welcome, and congrats on the finds! I'm no pony price expert, but I think that sounds fair for them, since they're in such nice condition. I'm not sure, though, so best to wait and hear from one of the pros ;)

I think $10-$15 are a good price for the big brother ponies. I've seen them go for a much higher price. Congratulations on your latest ponies

Wonderful ponies you got there...

The boy ponies are my favorite too....Took me 3 to 7 years to get them all, only missing some accessories for the baby brothers, and the family, and clipper... Do not remember if he came with accessories....

I have all 9 big brothers hats bandannas and combs too... Complete
Have the family sets mom dad brother sister. There are 3 family sets.. Missing accessories
Mountain boys all 6, just the pony they are the most expensive if the boys.. Missing accessories but not interested in them anyway..
Boy tux n tail and bride satin in lace. Both are mail orders quite expensive, but sometimes you get them in a lot... Completed both...
I also have all 6 baby brothers with bandana and most of their accessories.
There is also 2 baby brothers in the peek a boo series they have bibs... Missing brush
There is baby lucky and baby clipper they are both mail orders... Got baby lucky both loose and mip.

They are my favorite set. I wish you all the best in finding them. You never know where you will find them.

The first one in my memory from childhood was my best friend she had whirlybird twirl and tux n tail.

The first boy pony I ever had off eBay was tex. Then waddles in a bax at the salvation army, boy was I ever freaking out that day. Guess having those 2 sparked my obsession to get them all.....

Good luck, eBay when you manage to snag a lot ad a bargain sometimes there are.jems hidden in the pile. Does not happen all the time, takes a while..

Here is a great place to learn more about ponies and prices, eBay can show some crazy prices.

Example snuzze loose ok shape rare find 50.00 not worth it, that is a rip off, ps she is not rare.
Example big brothe tex nice and clean body in nice shape, letter under hoof hardly noticable on display, hair nice tai too.. 10.00 now that is a far price...

I am no expert, but it sound like a fair price, nice lookin ponies...

Thank you, and thanks for the responses. I kept noticing on eBay that many people claim things to be rare and then there are like 30 of the same pony, so obviously not. I so far am going fanatic about the BB. I am finding some accessories like their combs, but having trouble finding hats and bandanas. I have got my eye on salty's hat and I do not want to pay inflated eBay price for others, but am having difficulty finding them. Found someone who had tex's bandana and one other bandana but I cannot tell if it is sluggers or wigwams. Other than that nodda on the other accessories...
