Thanks so much for the pics fairgoers! Maybe one of these years I'll be able to join you. :D



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.

I can't help but think mutant deer everytime I look at them. :eeek:

Big thanks to everyone who's shared pics and info from the Fair! :D

So happy that Core 7 and G3.5 have been officially given the axe, but I'm still on the fence about the G4 toys. (Their heads look more like My Little Dik-Dik than My Little Pony to me.) It's neat to finally see the brushable-hair prototypes, though. Who is that yellow peg anyway? Her colors, eye shape, and bunny seem to indicate she's the G4 Posey character whose art we've seen previously, but her symbol isn't the same and (obviously) she has wings. And I see Glorkler made it to production too... Did anyone ask Hasbro whether they really are supposed to be Posey and Glory or if they're "all new" characters? I guess we'll find out in October either way.

Strange that they denied any plans for more charity ponies when we've already seen those breast cancer ponies "falling off the truck" in China. Wonder if they've scrapped whatever plans they had for that or if the reps there just didn't know about it...

I peeked in here for the first time in maybe a year today; WOW have I missed a lot.

The new characters are excellent. I love the molded hair designs, but I am glad that they will also have rooted-hair version. APPLE JACK! :)

Nice. I am excited for the G4s. Thanks for the pics, all!

Ooh! I love the new G4's! Way better than the mondo headed ones out now. Yes the ears make them look like my little donkeys, but I can deal. I hope everyone had fun at the fair! Where's the poeple's in the pics? I don't see anyone in any of the photo's, I mean I see a few people wandering around in the background but...

Did any of you meet each other for the first time or anything? Make new pony fan friends?

Here are my day two pictures! Again, I didn't take any at the fair, too distracted.

First up, my mom won first place in the Loo-ah-vul Contest! Her entry was a handmade plushie racehorse named "Run for the Roses" and he's wearing handmade racing silks, bridle, saddle, and a blanket of red roses, the traditional flower of the Kentucky Derby, held here in Louisville at Churchill Downs.

These pictures were taken on my blackberry so I'm sorry about the quality.

Next we have my pony haul for the day!

And who is this?!?!?

IMG00020-20100718-1702.jpg


I won the auction for Giant Pinkie Pie! She will now battle Frilly Frocks for the title of Pony Overlord!!

If that wasn't enough, my mom purchased the little Minty plush to keep Pinkie company!

And a shot for size reference. I sent this one to the future husband with the caption, "Look who's going to be joining us in bed when I get home!" LOL

Lastly, a group shot of all my fair stuff from the weekend (not including baits and swap ponies).

This was a great fair, I had so much fun meeting everyone and am really pleased to bring home so many great items for my collection. Thanks to everyone that bought/traded/sold with me and I hope to see you all again at another pony event in the future!

By the way how was the size range for the collectible tee-shirt? *cough* More like what's the larges size they come in?


The new ponies are warming up on me >.>

Got home a bit ago. It was so much fun! My helpers ran off after set up on day one, so I didn't get out of my booth much, but I loved meeting everyone who stopped by! It's great to put faces with names.

I'm so glad I finally got to meet Kar ..... and she didn't cut the heads off any of my so soft babies!

Jealous!!! ;___;

But thanks for sharing all the photos : )...

I find the new ponies really cute :D...

Me too but LOVE the photos. To be able to go and be able to buy ponies by the armload :shock:

Everybody got some great hauls by the looks of it!

I must say I find the new artwork interesting and so different. I'm not sure I'd even really register it was a MLP box if I walked past it on the shelf in a store . . . Glad to see the end of Bore 7 it'll be nice so see variety and I'm even more glad the exclusive will be staying as it. I just didn't like the idea of a G3.5 or whatever exclusive pony. i hope they take the idea of a unicorn that would be pefect:yippie:

Hey guys, I'm back home and have a bit of time to add a few more photos. Need to get to bed though!

I had to leave early today, due to the 9.5 hour drive back home, hehe.

I just realized I probably walked past a lot of you tons of times without realizing who you all were, and that saddens me that I didn't get to meet more people. You know what'd be cool for the next fair? A meet and greet before hand, or during a quiet moment where the mic is passed around and people get to introduce themselves and say a tiny bit about themselves if they are so inclined. That'd just be awesome! Then I'd be able to put the faces to the names!

Whew! What a blast! I'm working on uploading my gobs of pictures right now. :p I spent way too much money, but it was totally worth it! I was able to get custom plushes from Rowdy's mom and from KitKatVintage! Woot! Plus lots of other goodies. I had so much fun meeting everyone and putting faces to text. ^-^

*Pics coming shortly, hopefully*

I would feel out of place though being the only guy with ALOT of girls.........does look fun though seeing all the new upcoming ponies (some look pretty cute also)

There were a lot of men there, so I don't think you would have felt out of place at all; and we ladies don't bite....much!;)

I had a total blast and got some epic swag! It was my birthday present from my parents, so I went a little nuts in the spending department.:tongue:

You know what would be cool next year? A photo-shoot time, where all the collectors gather for a group shot. :) That'd be awesome!
