    So my first auction arrived today! I was so thrilled to open it and get out my 10 girls...though 1 is being resold to my toy store owner friend most likely. They have some spa time to put in, but most are in good shape!

    [​IMG]
    Tangerine Twinkle and Flower Garland--
    Both girls have seriously seen some better hair days, but they are both in pretty great condition otherwise! Tangerine has had the magnet busted out of her foot at some point (looks like a pet got a hold of her, she has three very small teeth marks), but otherwise she has no marks or spots that need cleaned besides her hair. Garland has her magnet intact though it looks like she has a small spot of nail polish just behind her cutie mark.

    [​IMG]
    Scootaloo (Core Friends) and Love-A-Belle--
    Scootaloo has some crazy hair and general light play grime. Her painted-on shoes do have some slight scuffs from play, but otherwise she looks great! Love-A-Belle has several black marks on her and light grime from play, but nothing looks too horrible on her. She even has her hair already braided, so she shouldn't need too much attention outside of a good bath! Her 3-D cutie mark is completely intact without any rips or major flaws as well.

    [​IMG]
    Butter Pop and Rainbow Swirl--
    Butter Pop has some black marks on her face and neck but otherwise she is in good shape. Her hair is getting frizzy but overall still feels every silky, so she shouldn't need too much spa time. Rainbow Swirl is missing her ice cream truck that she came with, but other than a small nail polish spot on the bottom of her foot and some crazy hair she's perfect!

    [​IMG]
    Fun Fairy and Sweet Sparkle--
    Probably the two in the worst shape. Fun Fairy has some head-to-body mismatch but only on her cutie mark side so I'm hoping this is resolved after she has a good bath to rid her of her grime. Her hair is a bit frizzy but nothing too scary. And Sweet Sparkle...oh Sweet Sparkle. She has been playing with nail polish at some point in her life (I think she's the culprit for the spots on the others! xD ) and has some pretty large spots of it. But, as luck would have it, none of them involve her cutie mark, eyes, or her glitter blaze! They come close, but they at least don't overlap. I'm very optimistic that it can all be removed without too much fretting.

    [​IMG]
    Rainbow Dash and Rainbow Dash 3.5--
    The G3 version has no body flaws and really well managed hair. She still needs a tiny bit of styling but otherwise she looks nearly perfect! The G3.5....ahahaha. She was the "ah, I can resell her" in this lot. I have no desire to collect 3.5s, I'm still going to give her a good bath and styling though since otherwise I know she'd end up right back here in our family friend store owner's next lot of ponies ready for a spa day.

    That G3.5 is horrible. In horrible shape. If you want to get rid of her, mail her to me XD
    Seriously, she is beautiful and in a nice condition. Nice lot, keep the luck up!

    Aren't those sparkly ponies awesome? I had a few transparent sparkly G1s as a kid.

    Thanks! I was really surprised to find they were transparent...I had no idea they made them like that!

    Haha, I would...but oddly enough my husband wants me to keep her! Rainbow Dash is his favorite in the FiM show, so he has a soft spot for her original form.

    Thank you!

    Butter Pop is cleaning up so nicely, I think she is one of my favorites!

    Thank you so much!

    Yeah...I've overtaken my husbands ebay. :winkpony:

    There are 2 auction wins on their way to me now...my new collection is already 20 ponies strong!

    They are pretty awesome!

    One new auction arrived today that I wasn't totally expecting. They are my early anniversary gift from Obi--Bridal Beauty and Pony Bride!

    [​IMG]
    They need a little care and Pony Bride has some light tail rust, but they are gorgeous gifts as an early way to celebrate 6 years together. <3

    Beautiful ponies! :ponylove: Bridal Beauty is one of my grails, she was my favourite when I was little. I just got my hands on her again after 14 years (and a few failed purchasing attempts), and now have her waiting in my proxy company's inbox for me to courier her out here. The only problem is that it will cost me $38 – almost 5 times what I paid for her! :eek:

    Effing double-posting.

    Btw, I think I remember seeing this auction on eBay in the last few days. Did you happen to get accessories with them?

    Yayy, bridal beauty! That was one of my favs as a kid too! I was lucky enough to find one at a swap meet. I have never seen pony bride before. She is pretty too!

    I did get the accessories with them! So glad to hear you found yourself one after so many years as well! Hopefully you have her in your hands soon.

    I didn't know she existed either, I had to go hunt her picture down to find out who she was for sure.

    Thank you very much!
