I’m so happy! Thanks to ads on FB Marketplace I’ve now found two collectible stores within driving distance (aka less than 2 hours). The store I stopped at today had a whole tote full! C03B3B18-A76F-4472-87B3-E0B2E4850D7E.jpeg

I’m especially excited about Baby Pineapple and Cool Breeze! Also, see the little Ice Crystal custom? Wonder if anyone recognizes the artist? It says APD 210 on the base of the tail.

@StormMaeker Yes I do actually, but I don't think they were made by the same customiser. My ponies aren't signed on the hooves and they are all G1s. This McD G3 Ice Crystal looks lovely though, the symbol seems to be very well done. :)

The thing is, I only collect G1 myself so I almost passed right over it before I realized. Then I just had to get her. After all, it’s likely the only Ice Crystal I’ll ever be able to afford!

Finally got around to giving a few a spa day. Though really, it was barely needed. Whoever these belonged to previously must have been a collector. All the symbols are so bright and clean and the hair only had a little frizz to tame. Here’s a close up of my 3 favorite girls now.2BEFDCB8-75CB-4CAE-BEE1-5862909CD4DD.jpeg26D0537F-FF75-45A8-AAEF-22D1A159291F.jpegDDAADFAF-E42C-4FEF-9183-2B48E8789140.jpeg
I need to see about getting Cool Breeze her wings back. Anyone know the trick for getting the plug out of her back?

It says to just gently remove the tab on here
Maybe try the paint can opener? There are several sellers that make replica wings, too.
I like shadowofthemoon on etsy

Ooh! Nice suggestion with a paint can opener. I’ll try that first. And I actually have a pair or two of replica wings already from shadowofthemoon I was planning on trying out. I’ll let ya’ll know how it goes.

With lots of love and patience (and a few not so nice words), Cool Breeze finally relinquished her wing tab to me and I gave her some pretty new wings! I’m aware these are Glow’s wings but I had these lying around for a while, curtesy of shadowofthemoon on Etsy.

@Tak the paint can opener worked pretty well! I had to use an exacto knife too to widen the hole but I don’t think I’d have been able to get that far without your brilliant suggestion. Thank you!

She looks fantastic! I’m glad it worked. Credit goes to @AutumnRoan for discovering it’s many uses.
