More boys!!!!! More variety in toys!!! (Purple is always appreciated, too) Honestly, though, the biggest thing for me is more variety. Wingers, ttt, newborns, fairytale characters, enough boys to support a society, and some awesome bushwoolies!

Totally Agree. Where did the Girls come from, not from the girls Obviously. Bring on the Boys.

And stop this Army of Pinkie Pies. Its still Pinkie Pie Just with a new hat or something tweaked to pass off as something new when in fact its the same Dang Pony.

I’d like a rainbow pony. Nit just one with rainbow hair though. Her entire body is gradient rainbow, she has rainbow tinsel in her hair and she has rainbow sparkles all over. Her eyes of course are also rainbow, as are her lashes. Her symbol would be a rainbow circle because that’s the true form of a rainbow (it’s just most of the time we can only see part of it) And her name will be Rainbow Rainbow, because she’ll be the rainbowest rainbow pony that ever did rainbow.

She will be unbelievably gaudy and she will be glorious :lolpony:

Boys!! Please let there be boys, earth, unicorns, pegasus, alicorns! (And in a wide variety of colors too! with short and long manes!)

Not really mini sized ponies! (eyeing G4 and all those mini blind bags sizes...).

Variation in poses, please! And "types" of ponies! (SS, TaF, Mermaids, babies, adults!)

If I had to chose just one thing? Diverse character! I don't want a single character army!

I would prefer a much larger toy, similar to G3 and G1. I'd also like the soft vinyl from the 80's, although I'm sure that won't happen. I'll take early G4 plastic, but I'm not a big fan of what they have going right now.
Lots of different hair colors! G3 is lovely because they went absolutely wild with those colors. 3-4 hair colors per pony? Yes please!
This is pretty dividing, but I'd love to see more horsey markings and fluffy hoof sculpting.
Obviously, more characters. I'd love to see families included as well.

I love how I’m the odd one out. I love my G1 and would love to see a style like that and the same kind of plastics again.
But I also love the G4’s. I like the shape but I would prefer symbols on both sides and more variety of ponies. Like, they have SO many background characters and pre-made cutie marks, so I can’t imagine it’s that difficult to load the images and program to the printers. It’s not like eyes or CM’s get hand painted on these guys.
I was never really into the G3 head/hoove/leg shapes. The lips are kinda creepy. But I know I’m the odd-one out on that.

I'm just hoping for new characters and style. If they're moving on to G5, I would like to see a totally new cast, not recycled characters. The generation that was the target demographic for Friendship Is Magic are now teens/young adults, so I totally understand that they could (and probably will) recycle names for a new generation of kids. I just feel like FIM was so huge, though, and the style belongs to FIM and Lauren Faust's vision. We've come to know and love the Mane Six in their current incarnations. It's weird to see them redrawn in the "leaks" as something other than what they currently are (ie. Twilight as an earth pony, Fluttershy as a unicorn).

I want to see variety in the toy line, similar to G1 and pre-core seven G3. And I wouldn't mind brushable figures being larger, a return to at least G3 size. I don't know if I really want to see a rehash of those figure styles. We have G1 covered already with the Basic Fun! releases and HQG1C. Hopefully, we'll see something new but reminiscent of G1 and G3.

G4 and g4.5, in my personal opinion, needed more variety, boys, babies, dragons, bushwoolies, and in characters. The cartoon had plenty to draw from, but the most variety was in the blind bags and those just aren't the same. I feel that there was a huge amount of factory errors as well, and they don't really look like ponies.

I kinda felt like they overdid accessories too. Granted, accessories have always been an extra selling point for certain ponies, but it feels like they made accessories instead of making interesting new styles of pony, even for the Mane 6.

Hair that doesn't frizz by literally taking it out of the package :hmph:
Agreed I got the Equestrian collection for Christmas when I took them out of the box their hair frizz especially rarity and the pony that had the same color as rarity I think that it was just a bad batch of purple hair

I think this is sadly the case for almost all modern ponies. :sadpony: All the ones I've gotten since the rainbow power series usually end up with really bad hair no matter how much I take care of it. But recently its been super bad. I hope they go back to using nice quality hair because the whole point of MLP was for kids to play with the hair (And its kinda hard when it becomes a gross frizzy mess)

Hair quality is my biggest request. Have a good photo showing decline in hair quality over the G4 years. Not sure which set the oldest Pinkie is from, but her quality is in line with my 2012-14s. Middle Pinkie is 2015, and obviously the G4.5 is 2017. 2017's hair is a little neater than 2015's, but only because I'd learned by this point not to try and fix it from box frizz :sleepy:

Also request longer noses and hollow bodies again! G4 Fashion styles feel like you could bludgeon someone to death. And ofc, variety. I can't help wonder if the decline in G4 is less to do with interest decreasing over time, and more to do with variety - If a kid gets a different pony for Christmas every year, she has all the mane 6 and CMCs by now, and you so rarely see anything else in stores nowadays.
