Wow. Alright, a friend of mine, Thorn, went to the San Diego Comic Con.

She is not a pony collector by any means, and therefore could care less that Hasbro was out there. But after imploring her, she said it would be no problem to pick me up a pony. (Thorny is just sweet that way)

Well she sent it.. And they're hideous as all get out. I'm sure everyone can agree. A friend of mine, Katana who also got one from Thorn, had told me where to look.

On the bottom of their hoof is their 'Casting Number'.. Whatever number out of 2000.

Katana was tickled. She got 25/2000

My number? I nearly choked. It isn't a big deal but it struck me so funny.

5 out of 2000. I got one of the 1st -FIVE- c_C;;

I mean. Really. That just tickled me. XD

I wonder who got 4, 3, 2, and 1? :D


Yea. That's all. I jus' found it funny :3

Wow, congrats! Im curious to know if other people on the board have 4, 3, 2, and 1. I bet the person that has #1 is totally psyched.

Um...to me it looks like the normal numbers on the bottoms of almost all G3's feet. Mine say's 27, and I have a hard time believing that we all got a # under 30 out of 2000. Check your other G3's, there are numbers under their feet too ;)

while that is odd woosie, it is possible since you're all collectors, it's possible that they were all picked up around the same time. and the fact that one was number 5 makes me think it was the production number ont heir foot, and not just a random number.

i looked at my blossom forth, she's 71 and my misteltoe is 64 lol

Well, my 2 sdcc's say 23 & 24.

This is getting rather exciting. It does seem odd though that we've all got under 30. But, if they're not casting numbers, then why are they all different? :shock:

I think it's just something about the mold or the batch they were made in... someone had a reasonable explanation for it when the G3s first came out :p But can you imagine trying to fit '2000' onto a pony's foot? o_O

Not entirely sure. o_O

I know Thorn went to the booth like.. nearly when she got there on the first day the booth was open.

She picked up mine, and then picked up another few.


Part of me thinks they weren't given in -order- persay.. but randomly behind a counter. Could be that the person that got 1 or 300 ... dunno makin' numbers up, is a random lottery. :)

Dunno if it is the case or not, but the theory of Woosie will come together -if- someone says they too have a #5 ^_^;


But as is.. I did find it funny. And I'm really curious as to the other numbers out there!

I like the name someone on here dubbed her - Bobbie Zombie. Seems fitting. lol I don't remember who it was, but kudos to them! I call her that when I show her to people. :)

On her front left hoof. If you've left her mip like I have, it may be a little hard to see through the bag, but you just need to get it into the right light. :)

We have yet to find 2 identical numbers. They're all been pretty sequential too. Weird.

Interesting! After I read that, I felt the need to look at mine, too.

And she's #19.

I've got number 15... and I have to agree that they are probably batch numbers or something. It is odd that no one here has gotten one above 30.
