Hi all!

Since it came up in the chatbox I thought I would share my Twilight Tribble once more ;)

Original thread: https://www.mlptp.net/index.php?thr...the-mysterious-arrival-from-hong-kong.105490/

She is a G4 sealed factory prototype I acquired back in 2014. Enjoy! :winkpony:

She reminds me of a blowdried cow! She’s so odd, it’s like she’s been charged up with static electricity and walked past a bunch of Pinkie’s balloons. I wonder how good these would’ve looked if the flocking was done properly

I was going to say "teddy bear," but Tak is right, she looks like a shetland pony...corn. If shetlands were unis would they have fur on the horn? This is so crazy I can't imagine what Hasbro was going for. It must be very soft, silky "flocking," but it's more like all over mane. Why brown? Why? Why? I love it.

This is the best thing I’ve seen all day
I admit, I laughed rather maniacally when she first arrived in 2014. ;)

Prototypes are rarely made in the colors that the product will end up with. They are more likely to be made with whatever is cheapest and most disposable at the time. As they proceed through the production process, the colors get fine tuned before final production release.

Unless it's pink Celestia. But we don't talk about pink Celestia. :rofl:;)

I genuinely love her despite the colors being mismatched, the fur on the horn though is bizarre. Good for her.
I'm quite fond of her myself! <3

This is probably the most bizarre proto-pony I've seen yet.
I have a few other prototypes, blanks, and factory errors that are kind of neat, but none to the level of Twilight Tribble ;) -- see the top shelf below:
