all the pony gens are so different and charming. I love how muscular and powerful G1 ponies look. Majesty looks like she could trample a wall down. G2 ponies are so slender and elf-like, they look magical and dainty. G3s are the most magical looking though, so colourful and sparkly and also their shapes are really impressive. They’re curvy and their faces are so soft and feminine. G4s are cute and simple and squishy, like Hello Kitty.

G2 are beautiful!! I always loved how tall and slender and different they are. They’re like the tolkein-esque elves of the pony world *w* it annoys me that most of the G2s on my want list are so hard to find though!!

You just can't get good playsets these days...

You’re right! It is a pain, but I do understand why- the economy, while improving, is still pretty awful worldwide, and playsets are expensive to produce and even more expensive to buy.

A lot of people just can’t afford playsets any more full stop, and a lot of parents have this silly idea of “why spend money a smaller amount of money buying my kids toys every year, when I can spend tons of money at once and get them something that will last ages”

Its far more healthy for young children to play with things that encourage imagination then for them to spend their whole lives in front of a  ’kid friendly tablet’ that does nearly nothing to stimulate them.

Going back to the original point- it is annoying that its near impossible to get a playset that isn’t a single piece of plastic with some depth to it and a few stickers, but that’s the only real way companies can shift playsets at all.

I understand the feeling of being disappointed by playsets!! Particularly G4 my little pony… all the playsets are just these flat 2d plastic cut outs. Lame!! The upcoming Princess Rainbow Castle is by far the best of this gen, but it’s still nothing compared to stuff like the G1 castle :P

I will say that while they are a bit expensive, the new Littlest Pet Shop playsets are wonderful. There’s lots of tiny pieces and they snap together well, meaning they’re complex but also easy to customise. And the fact that they’re stackable to create buildings is wonderful! I need to upload the photos I took of building mine together.

*reaches hand towards acetone*
*whispers* new luna fashion style

hahaha I was thinking that too! I’ve been thinking “would it be wrong of me to wipe the wing transfers off”? I know it’s better to leave them in case I want to re-sell them… but at the same time, I don’t like them!! Aaahh…

I scanned in the leaflet that came with the big Pet Shop set!

It has a nice preview of some upcoming characters. I’m glad Delilah is getting a toy, I liked her a lot in the show! (The toy doesn’t look very much like her though, haha) Plus Princess Stori gets a full-size toy instead of their old mini release. Madame Pom too! And if you look on the roof in the top image, you can see a Fun Russell. Lots of cute show characters :D I get the feeling some of the non-show designs’ names are puns or references, but they’re lost on me…

I feel like the top image is a terrible premonition of what my desk is going to look like when these sets actually get some UK release.

The Trent sisters, Gail and Zoe!

My Gail Trent arrived with a flawed eye! It won’t be hard to fix with a bit of paint though, and everything else in her set is fine (including Princess Stori)
