Hi!

I'm Leo from Buenos Aires, Argentina

I´ve been scouting thousands of vintage toys in local auctions, garage sales & flea markets.

I love all MLP stuff. I personally don´t collect this but my GF has some nice ones
I grew up in the 80s so my ponies were present in every playmobil fantasy set up we played

From time to time I stumble upon some Pony collections and I´ll start selling this stuff here.
Our local economy is stagnant and the average income is like 8% of what is was in 2017. So I decided to sell stuff worldwide.

I´m always on the lookout for some great finds and MLP always gets me excited

super huge greetings :) would love to know you can be a scout for all things argentina = I love all the colores vivos!!

and yes, MLP in good condition can fetch a pretty penny :) so they are a solid currency in these crazy-trade days

my current wish is for a blue haired argie moondancer :) happy to pay 1000USD for one in great shape

Welcome to the MLPTP! I imagine how amazing it would be to travel to other countries and find ponies. I'm sure I wouldn't even know where to look but in my dreams I'm stumbling across the Argie Gingerbread LOL

Ok, I gotta dye one moondancer... I'll be checking every fair and shard sale for this one.

If you ever came to Argentina I'll be more than happy to take you to some fairs/flea markets.
In the most forgotten places is where you find the most incredible treasures. Yeah, it sounds like the lamest phrase ever but this actually happens.

You have to keep moving to get some ponies before others do

Welcome to the mlptp! :)
Thanks a lot!

Welcome!! I collect G1 ponies and am just now learning about all of the different variants. I love to dream about all of the different Firefly variants out there, she comes in such fun color combos!! Not to say I could ever afford one but would love to come across them. WE look forward to seeing what you put up for sale!:tongue:

Welcome to the community! I'm sorry to hear how rough things are so rough in Argentina...

Argentina variants are very popular, so I'm sure you won't have any problem selling them!
I know there are a few I'd be interested in! ^_~

Argentina's economic history from the last 5 years is quite terrible. Basically, our former president decided to take a record-high external debt from IMF and other places and then decided to gamble with this money in high-risk investments and distribute the rest of it between his corrupt friends and family so they would take it outside of the country. And the actual president decided to impose the longest quarantine in the world so he halted the market and the economy even more. The positive thing is that in these dark times we always go back to the roots of helping each other, friends, family, anyone. Always trying to stay positive in the face of adversity... :flutter2: *Epic music in the background*

As soon as I could start getting more toys you'll see some of my new posts...

Ouch, I'm so sorry! >.< That sounds like an awful nightmare.

It sounds like you have a very tight-knit community.
