@Skybreeze would it maybe a good idea to have a help finding g5 ponies and merchandise thread like the basic fun one? Anyone else interested?
I can definitely put something together, it may take me a bit as there’s something going on with my computer and my friend needs to come by and fix it. So, I can do it, will just be a bit of a wait.

I was able to order the new 6" Twilight and Sunny set from Walmart! Took me about ten attempts; my local store was the only one in my state that had them in stock, but the website kept glitching every time I tried to get store-to-home delivery. I've been excited for this set for months so I was not quitting until I had them in my hands lol

I really love them! The hairline is a lot higher compared to Izzy, which is a huge improvement considering how unsightly 6" Izzy's hairline is imo. It looks a lot more like a mane to me now.

They still have poly tails, but they're otherwise lovely and I think this might be my favorite Twilight brushable ever made honestly lol

I'm still hoping they will tweak the head sculpts to look a bit more like the singing Pipp (and thicken the necks a bit) but I have to admit I actually adore the 6" releases and I hope we get a bunch more in the future.

Just going to leave this here for everyone. :love:
The models look really good in this game!

As a kid I played both Friendship Gardens and Best Friends Ball. This looks like a game that little kid me would have spent a lot of time just running around on

OMG, that Applejack is so cute! And the apple pony being an Appaloosa would have been such a good visual pun, lol. I'm glad we got an all-new cast but I do find G4-to-G5 concept art fascinating. Love Applejack with those little hoovsies.

Have you guys seen this G5 Applejack concept art? I think I'm in love!

I would have loved this style for G5. She actually looks like a horse!
I really like this design. I’d like to see more patchy ponies in future releases

Where is all the concept art? I’ve seen some renders but there seems to be concept art all over the place and I’d really like to look through it all. Concept art is something that interests me

There was a massive leak of G5 concepts a few years ago. I'm sure there's still archives of it floating around. I found this one on Imalou's Twitter. Celia Kaspar (celiascribbles) also shares some of her concept art on her Instagram.

Thanks!
Did Imalou and Celia do the designs for G5? I’m not great with names to say behind the scenes stuff is an interest of mine :unsure:

Yes, they did. Imalou finalized the designs for Sunny, Izzy, and Sprout, and Celia finalized the designs for the pegasus sisters and Hitch.

Polish Egmont website finally updated and added the picture of the newest magazine that comes out this Wednesday. We're finally getting a new figurine. This time it's a figurine of Pipp!

That alicorn Izzy looks like a newish image to me and that Pipp looks like an alternative one. Glad they’re starting to use different images now instead of the same few.
As for the figure, I see they got a bit of wing detail in there

I've received my magazine today and the figurine is really cute! I feel like she has more movie accurate proportions compared to regular g5 toys. She's so small compared to Sunny.

Oh, wow! They’re so good for their size! I like how they’re still bothering to paint their hooves too. Pipp was also smaller than Sunny in the film too so it’s great they got the sizes correct with them

Thanks for showing us, nice comparison :flutter2:

That's neat, forgot all about that one, maybe I can find one a thrift store one day, I do have a Celestia that you poke in the but and she talks but it's the original pink one.

I think I have an extra (she might be missing wings). But if I do I’d be happy to send her your way my friend. ❤️ I shall check my pony hoard for you tomorrow at a more appropriate time.
