I love the fact that you made this. Truth be told, I was wastching g3 and note-taking just two days ago, to try and see If there was really evidence to debunk the claim of g3's ponies lacking character. I found a lot. Much of which is also reflected in your observations.

I'm still working on typing up the thread ith my findings, but I'll definitely be posting it soon, and throw the link in the FC.

I've never seen the cartoon, but I love collecting the toys. I think it's one of the prettiest gens. There are a lot of

unique symbols and charming color schemes.

 

 

 

Edit:I just watched Positively Pink. It was cute. I liked Puzzlemints voice actress a lot.

I used to watch all the gens on MLP when i was a little girl, and I had about 100 of the ponies, including a few Pegasi which was amazing at the time. I also had books of MLP, and shirts etc. I wish I still had my toys, sadly I sold them at a garage sale. Thankfully, the girl who bought them was a collector, so I know they went to a good home.  :proud: 
I might go to some thrift stores and find some old ones, wash them, and do their hair so they're beautiful again.

I wish I could find old ponies at thrift stores. Goodwills have pretty crap toy sections. The other trift stores that aren't Goodwill never have ponies either.

 

Wish I could find Toola Roola somewhere.

My local Value Village ALWAYS has them, I'll keep a look out for her for you! I just wish they kept all their toys out, they do this stupid thing where they put 2-4 little toys in a baggy and you have to buy the whole baggy even if you only want one thing in there.

It's so annoying!! I really wanted a Monster High doll once, but she was in with a few barbies and made the price more than I was willing to pay. Ugh.

Goodwill also started doing that a few months back and it sucks!!

aww, thanks hun. 'Ppreciate it

 

Yeah, I see the thrift stores that do have lots of little toys do the same thing. Bag them with like toys, so there's always something you get that you DON'T want. Waste of money, if you ask me

So I was watching The Runaway Rainbow Movie and Spike happened to have a map that had castles, other than the Crystal Rainbow Castle and Celebration Castle, on it. Why have we not seen these other castles in the g3 series?! I think it would be very interesting to have explored these castles.

I grew up with the G3 ponies! I love them to this day, I still have most of my ponies! :D (the dogs took out a few over the years  :blink:)  Just gotta find them  :adorkable: .

 

I recently re-watched a few of the specials, I forget how much I loved them!

 

I am so glad there is a thread for G3 appreciation! 

 

If it weren't for these ponies, I probably wouldn't have been interested in the G4 ones!

 

Long live G3!

I really liked G3 when I was younger. Sparkleworks was my favorite pony

I found Rainbow Dash and Pretty Parasol at the Swapmeet. There were some McDonald's g3s but I've never been fond of half brushable, half molded. The G3s next on my wishlist are Silver Glow, Sunrise Song, Seaspray and Wishawhirl.

When I watched G3, I noticed some odd cannon shipping going on with Pinkie and Minty. Every time they see each other they hug or something and a candy cane has been named after them. They call it "PinkieMint". I guess the writers get bored so they ship their own characters together. I just thought it was funny since there's really no boys around or anything. You gotta wonder what happened to them. Also, who here has watched Minty Christmas? I love that movie. :)

Hi, everyone. The name's Daisy Jane. I love all the My Little Pony generations, though G4 is my favorite. However, I do really like G3. It is hard to find anything positive about this generation online, so I appreciate this thread.

Good movie. Kinda the last movie that had any sort of cannon to it. It featured characters and references from the past two specials, where as Princess Promenade felt more like a spin off. And speaking of shipping, I cant be the only one who noticed something going on between Sky Wishes and Star Catcher.

So cute in fact that she's been brought into the G$ fold. Or at least, as a Christmas special plush.

So glad to see a G3 appreciation thread on here! It's easily my favorite generation and it's so disheartening to see it constantly bashed by other pony fans. 

 

To answer the prompt questions:

- How did you get into G3?

My parents bought me several for Christmas when I was little. Sadly, I grew out of them while G3 was still in its early years, so I missed the majority of that generation. But I'm getting back into it now after having rewatched all the cartoons and realizing that they're nowhere near as bad as the haters keep saying.

- Who are your favorite G3 ponies?

Thistle Whistle and Sunny Daze! Thistle Whistle is so adorable and quirky and I love her irritable little personality. And Sunny Daze is like a cooler version of G4 Rainbow Dash.

- Do you collect G3 pony toys? If so, what's your collection like?

I used to have a bunch when I was little but I sold them all at a yard sale years ago. I just started collecting them again but it's a slow process. They're my favorite generation to collect, though, because the toys are just so cute! My favorite piece of my collection right now is my Star Swirl toy. She's gorgeous!

- Did you watch the shows or movies? Any favorites?

Yes! My favorites are A Very Minty Christmas and Friends Are Never Far Away. But, honestly, I like all of them. The animation is so cute and pretty. 

- Overall, what do you like about G3?

The huge variety in characters -- both designs and personalities. The animation was also so cute and beautiful. So many scenes that just left me speechless at how gorgeous they were; I never get that feel from watching Friendship is Magic. Also (and I know I'm biased here) I think G3 had the best toyline out of any generation. So much variety in poses, colors, detailed cutie marks, and so many characters!

I loved my single G2 and trio of G1s so much as a kid, I was ready to collect G3 as soon as it started. After trying to get all of the ponies the first year, I went for EVERY white pony I saw. I had a rather impressive collection before I purged most of them and sold them to friends. I adore the colors in most G3 hair. I just (re)acquired Bowtie recently and I love her more than G1 Bowtie. The attached photo features about half my remaining white G3s. I'll have to take a proper group shot later.

It's nice to know people are still fans of the older generations of the show

G3 was what got me into MLP in the first place, seeing part of A Minty Christmas AND Princess Promenade is what got me into the franchise.

 

Honestly I like some of it quite a bit despite wanting there to be some major changes.

Gonna tell you from the perspective as an animator, their animations weren't good (nor the very worst until 3.5) BUT as an artist I have to agree with you about how amazing the background scenes are. That is known as "Scenery Porn" and G4 failed on it so badly. G4 never let the backgrounds get so complicated and drowned in beautiful detail the way G3 did and it shows. One of the many things G3 has over G4 any day.

Same, I was wondering what'll happen and who'll be there. Happiness (yellow), Friendship (purple), family (blue), kindness (green), music, Laughter -and Rainbows (but we've seen that)- I don't remember celebration (unless that's their current home). I really wonder about the Family one the most.
