I don’t collect these (but happily admire them as I go for MLP) but I’m disturbed at the fact they couldn’t make the forelock of hair and just did a mold for it. How tacky and cheap of the company. I’m a lot more triggered by that than them reusing an old mold. Lol

(Also, I guess Cecilia gets a horse now too?)

Its one of my pet peeves about the line. Its not the reuse of a mould that bugs me. But the reuse of that particular mould. I've had two Chica Linda posed horses come temporarily through my hands and aesthetically, its got all kinds of wrong. A too small head, back legs are placed lower then the front, flank and haunches are off, swan necked and the barrel is too big.

I understand that they aren't breyer or Schleich or safari ltd. But many of their horse moulds have something wrong.

Junipero mould has a weak tail that could easily be snapped off by a rougher child

Equellus mould has an absurdly small head

Flaca mould has no hooves and the feathers are jagged

Boomerang mould has a swollen face on one side

Spirit Jr. mould has bad seams on the face

Liberty mould has the jaw and neck into a partially melded mass

Small horses are awful, but I don't bother with them

The Stable Horse mould has the tail a bit too high up on the rear

The Tiller mould is the only one thus far, free from issue and nitpick

The ones I've not examined out of package are the big eating Spirit, the running mould, the Feed n Nuzzle Mare and Foal and the Pepper mould.

That new mould looks good. Is that Tambourine?

I bought three of these for customs. The gray is going to my little cousin.

I'd like to do one as an Appaloosa, and one as a silver bay.

Next is Chica Linda. She's finally on a decent mould.

Feather-lite

Soooo I love these a lot and Spirit is one of my absolute favourite movies. But I kinda hate what they’ve done to him for the show.
For me, I loved that Spirit was a free stallion but also that Rain went with him in the end. Also the music. Got to love me some movie score Bryan Adams.

@Leave a Whisper - I don’t know how you have time in your days to get so many customs done. Your like a magical unicorn yourself. ;)

SSotS is an amazing movie. Honestly, these get done quick because they're very simple customs.

I like these 4 packs. They're a good way to get lotsa cheap horsies to customize. I hope I have some brown paints left that haven't clumped up.

I'm getting rid of the pinto with the awful scribble patches.

I love the new looking up mould. His face looks so grumpy haha!

The rearing one looks nice too. But I'm sooo tired of Spirit Jr. being shoved into these sets you guys.

The grays are cute and that blue roan is fab. He'll be the offspring of a QH pair.

Now who to customize as the black?
