I'm going to through this step by step after the break for those on the fence about it, so check it out below!
Along with our fan favorites, Hasbro threw in a bunch of other blind bag recolors. For the most part, they aren't bad, in fact I even like a few of them (Above Coconut Creme for example). A few quick mods and I'm sure any artist out there could have these looking like the actual background ponies from the show.
It's still a bit of a wasted opportunity though. I'm pretty sure the majority of us would go nuts over a Lyra/Bonbon/Scratch bonus in this pack. I don't know what the legal requirements on that sort of thing are, but considering The Hub has officially declared DJ-Pon3's name, I doubt they are that serious. But I'm not a toy designer, and can't really comment on that professionally. Mint colored Lyra paint just might be twice as expensive as pink for all I know.
Getting them out of the plastic was a bit difficult, though I may have just been paranoid.
And here are the real prizes! Molded mane 6! I kept this image larger so you can see all the near little details. there are actually 5 primary molds that the recolors use as opposed to what looks like 4. Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Twilight, and Pinkie Pie are the obvious ones, but even though it looks like Applejack is running with Rainbow Dash's model, she actually has a few unique differences in the hair/overall shape that actually make her original. Fluttershy on the other hand got completely ripped off. Poor girl...
Coconut Cream is best pony out of these side ones obviously.
And there you have it! That's a ton of pony for any desktop.
- All six of the mane cast can finally be bought in one package.
- The material seems durable enough.
- Well detailed for their tiny size with full cutie mark in tow.
- Not a bad price for SO MUCH PONY.
- Packaging can be a bit of a pain to work with, and can mold the limbs into awkward positions.
- Only a few of the extra ponies really stand out.
- Fluttershy desperately needs her own blind bag model.
- No Trixie
