    How popular was My Little Pony in earlier times?

    So millions of fans who've been invested in this franchise long before you people are automatically disqualified as adult fans? I suppose in your eyes, little kids who have been DC or Marvel fans long before the current generation don't count as adult or teen fans either? Wow. That's some logic there pal. Here's a news flash, g4 fans are just the most recent fans of a long running kid's franchise. You are Not the only ones who count. Why you people seem to think that you are somehow the only adult fans is beyond the rest of the mlp fandom at large. Again arrogant and willfully ignorant statements being made.

    How popular was My Little Pony in earlier times?

    Incredibly popular. The 80s mlp toyline went on for ten years, spawned tons of toys and merch, a large loyal fanbase, 2 specials, 1 movie and 2 shows. I can't speak with any authority on g2. G3's toyline was also insanely profitable for Hasbro and was very popular with kids and collectors, again spawning a ton of toys and merch. I'm unsure how the episodes faired with kids. MLP has been one of best selling girls brands for years. It wasn't some obscure line that barely limped by and suddenly soared into popularity in the 2000s. Anyone who says otherwise is full of it. Incorrect, there have been long time fans since the beginning who have grown up with it, seen new generations, and introduced their own kids to it. G2/G3 fans are now adults and teenagers and many either never stopped collecting, or rekindled their love and childhood memories. If it exists, there are fans of it. There have also been guys who enjoy girl's franchises, just as there have been girl's who have enjoyed guys franchises for longer then some of you have been around. That's just as ridiculous as believing that there's never been a large adult or teen fanbase of any other long- running franchise. That is both an arrogant and willfully ignorant statement. 30+ years worth of mlp fans say hello.

    What is the first news story you remember?

    Hmm. I can't remember for sure, but I think it was the Northridge Earthquake? I didn't pay much attention to the news as a kid tbh.

    I have a Figurine.

    Wind Drifter is such an underrated beauty! That's the rainbow haired one. Green G1 is Tootsie. I really like her. She's on my wishlist someday. Orange G1 is Applejack The yellow winger is Little Flitter I'm not familiar with the mcdonalds G2s, but the green one is Ivy. Congratulations on some very cute ponies. The pink G1 looks like either Baby Cotton Candy or Baby Tiddlywinks. Can't see her symbol. Here's a good reference site. You can also check my little wiki. http://www.strawberryreef.com/

    Worst My Little Pony toy ever?

    Your creeped out by a jewelry box? I guess you weren't a fan of Keypers either huh? They're very pretty in real life. My cousin had one. I think Pretty Puff?

    35th anniversary g1 sold in target

    Are you for serious about them being sold at TrU? Awesome!!!
  10. Depends on the customizer and the complexity or simplicity of the custom. They hafta find and buy bait, if not provided one. They hafta buy hair, paint or clay as well. I have two amazing character customs that I commissioned from a very talented customizer. They have paintjobs, moulded clay clothing, details and deliberately styled hair. They took quite a while to make. Trust me, pics don't do these boys justice because you can't see every detail in one photo. They're some of the crown jewels of my collection. Repaints, grail customs and restorations take some time to do, because you are making/restoring/recreating it for someone paying you and you want it to look good for your customer and build up a good reputation. On the flipside, I have this little cutie who simply needed her mane done. Everything else was already done for the customizer. Her tail and symbol were done beforehand. The pony and remaining hair was already provided for, so she didn't take long. Rehairs and alt-hairs take less time.

    This current generation of MLP does not have a Complete Monster

    That goes for a lot of cartoon villains tbh.

    Wouldn't Sombra be considered one? Or at the least the closest thing to it?

    Thinking of starting to collect stuff

    Rule of thumb for every collection. Buy what you like and you won't be unhappy.

    What is the latest pony related merchandise you bought?

    @Rainbow Glitterswirl Shampoo and conditioner. I personally use tresemme, (because that's what I buy for me) but whatever you've got will do just fine. Styling? Depends on whatcha want to do. Braids, feathers, beads and curls are easy.

    35th Anniversary Collector Ponies

    Sure wish they'd done a different set. They did this set and the first Rainbow Set for the 25th Anniversary. And I personally have never been fond of the Collector Ponies. They could have gone with other popular sets. Like So-Softs, Twinkle Eyes, Big Brothers, or Unicorns. Ah well, my daughter would like Bluebelle so if it pops up anywhere other then Target I'll snag her one.
