Thanks to @paradise-estate on tumblr who brought this to my attention!
Hasbro has added a new section to the official MLP site, dedicated to the "retro wave" they seem to be joining in with alongside Basic Fun. You can currently get there by going to the home page > then "meet the ponies" or "meet the rainbow squad" > then "retro squad". It features graphics of the Mane 6 in "retro" style, which is a sort-of flat-colour variant of G1 boxart style, and defines the "collector ponies" as "the original mane 6", with similar graphics. I love Snuzzle, and am thinking about changing my icon somewhere to her!

There are no links anywhere, but this page seems to be advertising this set which has yet to come out, and possibly hints at a similar set depicting the collector ponies!

I love all of them that so awesome that hasbro is making a effort for retro ponies wouldn't it be cool for the main 6 to go a alternate reality wear they meet the original main 6 I think that would be cool

That'd be awesome! :O It's very unlikely though, since all G4 screen production is finished now. The last EqG short came out today and there are only a few episodes left of S9 :(
Still, they could be brought into G5 alongside the reboot mane 6!

That would be incredible! Here's hoping the set(s) they've got planned do well and encourage them to do more!

Man, they're really going at the whole retro thing. It's awesome, but I'd definitely like to see more love given to G2 and maybe some more focus on the progression of My Little Pony -- releasing a set of a specific pony in the style of each generation would be really cool! All these throwbacks are exciting, though.
