Your Thoughts on G1 Toys

62 posts in this topic

I think the G1 ponies came out more true to the cartoon than the G4 line did.

I'd say G4's were kinda accurate in places, others not so much (my Twi Beanie Baby plush is too dark a shade of purple, but not the other ones I have, to say).

 

 

Yes. They're very beautiful and unfortunately for me, way outta my price range. Her name is Crystalline, if you want to know. They remind me of the old She-Ra horses if you remember those and Fashion Star Fillies.
I love that game. It's on the easy side sure, but it was fun and I enjoyed customizing her.

I don't remember those two, I'll have to look them up.

 

Yeah, the game is fun (though I actually got stuck in it and ended up just wandering aimlessly for 20 minutes because I thought that barn was just part of the scenery) and I'd say it's a good game for kids who may be starting out on the Sega Genesis. I don't like how can't walk to ledges without Crystal backing away though, it's a bit annoying, and I do feel that they really missed the opportunity to make a G1 MLP game on the Sega Genesis, like one on the G1 specials Rescue from Midnight Castle, Escape from Katrina, the 1986 movie, the End of Flutter Valley (which have evil witches in it too), maybe all of them, or maybe one based on G1 that took several elements from the series. Imagine that... :huh:

I've always loved G1 toys, but I've only recently got some of my own:

It's Baby Snookums. I really want to find Sniffles though, so the twins aren't separated..

That sucks! Perhaps someone on the arena or tp has an extra they'd be willing to trade. Good luck finding her twin Ena.

I love the gen 1 toys there was a lot of detail put into them back then which is what I like and each one was different not only that they also had foreign variants of the gen 1 toys and they had different poses which came with names it was not one set pose and the list goes on so I am going to end it here.

 

 

And sure the gen 1's don't look like the gen 4's, but at least they don't look as creepy as these 2 just look at how happy Chip looks their so not going to murder you in your sleep.

I honestly love G1 toys and want to collect more if I have the chance. The only thing I hate is that they make the faces look real, but that's just my personal opinion.

i honestly think all of the official toys look creepy.

the G1 toys,however,are a whole different league.

 

how many little girls mustve suffered horrible nightmares from that?

we may never now the answer :(

I think the problem is that you were first introduced, and became very used to, the style of the G4 ponies that all previous generation ponies look weird to you because they used the formulated, old style.

 

As a girl growing up with G1 ponies, no, I did not find them scary or horrifying growing up.  It's the style I grew up watching and I did not see them weird or horrifying growing up because there was no other style used to make them seem weird.  In fact, even with the new G4 style around now, which I do think are cute, I still think the G1 dolls are actually a lot more visually appealing than the G4 dolls.

Edit:  Whoa!  This topic is old!  I didn't realize it was bumped up and I'm replying to an ancient post, haha.

I love, love, love G1! The shows as well as the ponies. I think they look gorgeous, and have such nostalgia. They absolutely aren’t creepy - they are the predecessors that birthed all future gens of mlp. Even if you don’t like them personally, there can be no denying they paved the way for modern mlp and I find them beautiful. They look soft and wistful to me.

The G1 ponies look really soft and gentle which is why I really like how they look, they're adorable in the cartoon too. The variety in their poses is great and I hoped that G4 ponies would've had that diversity as well.

Most of all, they're a pleasure to look at and I wish I had more than just two. :D
