I have to say that I thought both the new ponies and the fair pony were much cuter in real life than in the photos we had seen earlier. I thought the Hasbro reps were really nice, and they gave Baby Bella a bunch of stuff including the "Meet The Ponies" DVD, which she has been watching in our hotel room repeatedly since 5:00. She wouldn't go to sleep tonight because she was so excited from everything going on today. I didn't take a lot of pics, but will try to post some when I get home of all our new goodies (didn't pack the card reader. . .I knew I was forgetting something)!

It's freaking official, I have to go to the pony con next year...I can't stand this anymore! I want to be there so bad I am green with jealousy lol. I have to agree that those stained glass ponies rock! There are so many neat ponies I want to buy but what really amazes me are the custom made things people come up with...plushies, stained glass, window clings, jewelry, etc. Way cool. Keep the pictures coming...so jealous so jealous so jealous lol.

I'm in pony fair overload mode right now. I have visions of myself prancing up and down the pony aisles, if only I could have been there . Thank you so much everyone for sharing all of your fair pictures, :yourock: And thanks SoSoftClaire for sharing all the info about what the Hasbro reps had to say about the future of MLP, very very interesting info. :worthy:

Thank you to all the fair-goers for sharing their pics and inside info! I have been so excited all week about the fair, even thought I wasn't going, b/c I knew I would get to hear all about it. You guys are the best!

Wow- thanks for all the pictures and stuff! It's not like being there, but it's a start :)

Is it just me, or do those new ponies seriously look like mice? Not the bodies, obviously, but the faces, with the pointy faces and huge ears. Nice to see more characters coming out, but I don't think I'll be buying any :/

oh those new ones with the hair...those really look off. i mean, a few of them look ok, but that yellow peg...that one's freaking me out. i need to see them in person i guess to decide which i want.

but lookit all the fun! ra i'm so regretting not going this year now. it was so fun last year, and it looks like so much fun this year! all the ponys, all the peoples. ra i hope it's closer/in RI next year. i wanna go again so bad!

and dawww i didn't win the giant pony test; neither did my sister :lol: guess this means i'll just have to make my design myself-sweet!

but it looks so fun! i hope everyone is enjoying themselves and has even more fun today. thanks for taking the time to show off to everyone ^^

oh and i'm all on board for the calling them G4s. the Core 7 (3-9s as i call them) are the same charaters as the G3, even though they went and rebranded the line. but it was the same story line. where as these new ones are new characters, and a new story, and a complete rebranding. so i have no problem calling them G4s.

:reaper: Kat :reaper:

The ears on those new ponies are way too big. And their snouts are way too small. It just ruins it for me. I do like the smaller ones with molded hair, though. Did they happen to say when that set was supposed to come out?

I went to Target today and they had hardly any MLPs and most of what they had was on Clearance. They didn't even have the mermaid Ponyvilles. Maybe they're clearing out old MLP stuff to make room for the new line. I got the SLH Rainbow Dash (the last of the big headed Core 7 I needed) for $5.49, so at least I didn't leave empty handed. I wish it was the one with Curly Pie included, but for that price, I'm not really complaining.

I hope I can go next year. Of course, if it's any farther from Chicago next year, I won't be able to go. But since I couldn't go this year, my mom agreed to take me to a flea market next weekend to look for ponies. I've never been to one, so I'm kind of excited. Hopefully I'll find something.

The new unicorns have somehow aggressive eyes... Molded hair look much better... I hope the white unicorn with purple hair be released with moulded hair! I like very much the yellow one with the pink hair! Her eyes are so cute and her wings are beautiful!!! Also I like the idea of the pets that can be carried on their back!!!! I still wait to see the winged Rapid Dash!!! PLEASE SM TAKE A PHOTO OF HER! What pet do you think will come with Rapid Dash? I think my favorite new pony is Applejack with molded hair! What a nice forelock!!!

Oh what would I give to go to a pony fair!! Maybe next year. I think the modled plastic is really cute...but I so miss the traditional hair...I truely miss the 80's and the G3 ponies....But once I see new things coming out I am sure I will collect them! Thanks for all the pictures! It gives people like me a chance to feel like we got to go:)

We are home now. :) only really DB mom! Really a sweet person!!! Will post pictures soon. Mom won 1st in the derby hat contest. Go Mom. The only down side to it, was you could only look at pony's so many times before it got boring. There were events/games but not enough of them. I saw Kar, wanted to say hi, but every time i got close someone snagged her away. We left 3 hrs before the fair was over, Nina was getting fussy and I was sitting and almost fell asleep lol

I always love seeing pics of the Fair! One of these years I'm going to get my butt there lol

As far as the new ponies go, they are looking less and less like PONIES and more and more like cats or something. I don't like them at all.
