Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I......I want show accurate ponies.

I have the Mcdonalds ones from last month, but they're still not close enough.

Heck, I'd buy two sets! One for normal display, and one to turn my avatar into toys!

So do I. I have no confidence it will happen.

That said, if they wanted to make really high-quality, accurate plushies, I'd hope they'd license the design and construction out to another company, because their own attempts are really sad. One that comes to mind is Folkmanis Puppets, who make commercially-available, affordable, and insanely awesome stuffed animals. I had all their stuff when I was a kid and it was great. Judging by their website, they haven't lost their touch, either. I'd love to see them tackle ponies.

Either that or hire talent from the Brony community. WhiteDove Creations has basically perfected the art of pony patterns; the only shortcoming is her heads are too narrow from the front, but that's easily remedied.

I emailed Hasbro and asked about them, and I'll let you know what they tell me as soon as they get back with me.

One of the reasons I didn't get the McD's ponies this year is that they're the same as last year's only with those ring thingies that I'd try desperately to sand down and repaint, something I don't want to do.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Thanks for this, J. I hope my addled memory hasn't given you false hopes, but if there was any truth to what we were discussing in those earlier conversations I'd be so fricking stoked. Even if they wouldn't bother with a Derpy plushie I'd happily buy the others, especially if they came in gift sets and boxes.

No, I really do remember we had a conversation, and that I had learned from an email from someone that Hasbro was talking about making G4 MLP:FiM plushes. Hopefully, a rep will be able to clear it all up.

Now, that said, I do have a friend over at Brony Kingdom who has a friend who makes plushies. They're not intricately detailed, and they're not very big, but they're nice, certainly adorable, and I've been wanting to get one. She sells them for $33 a piece, which includes shipping. Her website is here: http://sodas-shop.tumblr.com/

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I've never bothered to email Hasbro regarding STAR WARS toys and collectibles for various reasons so I don't know how long it takes a rep to return a message. Are they usually pretty quick about replying?

I don't know. The response email said it should take less than 48 hours to receive a response. Counting that I just emailed them, we should hear from them no later than 55 hours from now.

You'll probably get a canned response. If they haven't announced anything yet, I don't think some customer relations flunky will know anything about it.

You are free to do so, my friend! Hopefully, the news will be awesome, and at least 20% cooler.

Done. And done.

Keep your fingers crossed. Gep might be right and it could just be a lame canned response, but hey...you never know. Chins up!

A little nudity might have helped. That's all we're saying.

I just need a response about plushies. There's plenty of time for them to get a restraining order later.
