It’s weird to think that G3 did do the same thing... but they still had so many ponies before that you can buy. I almost feel like G4 is about to go through what G3-G3.5 went through... with the new G4 ponies having bigger heads except slimmer body shape, it’s just interesting to me. Which I liked the earlier G4 style than the new style they are doing now...
Yes! But g4 always has done this.

Here is my unpopular opinion, as much as I love all generations and I love g4 I feel like I always find the mane 6 and no other pony. I feel like they make too many of the same.

That's definitely not an unpopular opinion. :)

I wasn’t sure if others felt the same way but now I see others feel the same way.

When I was younger I’d be so confused how princess celestia would be a light pink as a toy but white in the tv show, but now I see they make both versions

I wish they made more background characters as toys!!

I like the donkey pose.
The donkey pose is my favorite G3 pose!

My big pet peeve is ponies whose poses have them looking really far upward. I'm fine with it on babies, because they can be looking at an adult pony. But on adults, they're just looking at the ceiling and I'm totally baffled as to how you're supposed to display or photograph them, lol.

The donkey pose is adorbs. So much character! Lol the "ceiling" pose is one of my other favorites, though it looks like it'd hurt. :lolpony::smile::cry:

I'm not a huge fan of any of the human characters in the G1 series.

G2 deserves more attention.

G3 Spike is the best Spike.

The Newborn Cuties are adorable and I love them. XD

G4 is an awesome generation in many ways, but it totally flops in a lot of others.

I really, really, REALLY hope they don't just redesign the Mane 6 for G5. Let's get some new characters, oh my gosh.
I literally agree with all of those.

I can't stand G4's design, they look much more like deer than ponies or horses. I can stand the Princess Celestia and Luna designs, but not anyone else. I absolutely adored the look of G3. That's my favorite gen for the toys.

The G3 cartoons were very blah and uninteresting to me. Except for most of the last 2 seasons of the G4 cartoon, I do like the stories and the thought that has gone into expanding the pony universe and explaining how certain things work (how ponies get their symbols etc).

G4's design was terrible. It still is. I want the chunk pones back.

All very popular opinions!! I'm so sick of the mane 6 fever that G4 has been infected with, and I started out as a G4 collector. :madpony:
Agreed. I started with G3 but for the longest time it was G4. Now looking back I could of gotten other gens instead of wasting money on something that'll melt in 5 years. Although some are cool, and I love those, others are just no

I think all of MLP has a long history of "Eh" songs, sprinkled with some good ones.

I don't know why newer fans rag on 3.5 when they're so much like G4 design-wise. Skinny gut, round, bulbous head, nearly non-existent muzzle, distorted features, bell-bottom legs, huge eyeballs.

SHS have good moulds, but 90% of them are bland in color and design. There are only a handful I like:
Wildflower
Sunsplasher
Sun Glory
Pretty Belle

I like Sherbert more then Scoops.

I think Pretty Belle is prettier then Rapunzel.

I wish Whizzer and Buttons had red in their hair.

I think Chief's colors are wrong. He looks more like a cop pony then a fire fighter pony.

Slugger is a handsome guy, but he kinda looks like a strawberry shortcake.

I don't like all pink ponies.

The Rainbow Curls are right up my alley, soft, dreamy pastels, with symbols that remind me of care bears and san rio surprise, yet for whatever reason, I don't like them.

Always a good topic.


I think the Drink n Wets are a super adorable set.
I love them, too! When they’re all lined up together, they look like a tiny pony choir singing to you

As for my unpopular opinion... I don’t care for rainbow hair on ponies... one stripe of another color= great, but not rainbow ...

What if instead of ponies we had the show be about horses or donkeys instead?
They could've made the g4 donkey characters in a brushable. I'm not a fan of one's I can't brush.

The so soft newborns... g1 and g3. They disturb me. I could definitely imagine them going chucky on me.
:rolleyes:

Yeah G4 is kinda ugly tbh. It is NOT better looking than G3 for sure.

Gotta disagree with the SHS, but agree with you on Pretty Belle. She's gorgeous. Her and Rapunzel are equally gorgeous.


Sherbert came first. So she should be liked more. Though she becomes dingy with age, I think back in the day and even now she's still beautiful.

Same with the red. They at least could of done both versions, since the are both cool. But they should of been more show accurate.

I never noticed that with Chief! :lolpony: I love his colors even if they aren't fit for his job!


They could of used cooler color combos for slugger. More baseball like colors, because they didn't we have two pink big brothers.

I just got one of those huge G3 Sing and Dance Pinkie Pies and.... she's terrifyingly bizarre. Her head makes 'whirrrrrr' sounds and her neck jerks like Frankenstein's monster everytime she speaks. Her dancing is just her head swinging and her tail moving. And the voice... yikes.

I don't care if anyone thinks she's cute. The beast is possessed.

And I love her. Creepy little critter.

I love all ponies. So I don't think she would bother me! :lolpony:

Another thing that has really bothered me is the naming of ponies. I really hate Hasbro reusing names for very different ponies. I think if they have unique qualities, they need unique names. Like Sparkle Baby Firefly should have had a different name since she doesn't have the same look.

In the same breath, what is with some of the names? It's like they couldn't think of a name so they just pulled one out of thin air. Tootie Tails? I think they could have come up with something better.
