YOUR NOT MY SUPERVISOR!


YOUR A BAD SON!:cry:


"You're" :p


Back to school for you! But two points to Gryffindor for the Archer reference.




As for G5, wouldn't ponies that actually looked like ponies be neat? I mean, if they have never seen ponies before I'm sure they could use Google. Heck, I'll send 'em pictures of my herd o' monsters if they want.

Sure would be fun to have a set of 'real life' ponies with more realistic colorations on G1 type toys.

Wide variety of pony characters, glow in the dark ponies!, and great quality hair. Maybe a new species..... I loved the flutter ponies and the breezy ponies so much, maybe something like that. And ponies that are actually made for little girls to play with? Enough with these tiny, hairless collectibles.

*Fortunately for you, they're available now. All da current G3 and G4 Pinkies shall help you Pie the world!
My Pinkie collection is nearly complete. :( I love Pinkie.... but a little birdie makes me feel like we miiiiiiiiiiiight be getting some new stuff G5 and a completely new cast. *fingers crossed*

Following is rumours and not yet confirmed!!
Here’s a possibility of the new logo:

AND this fun animatic that was posted (and since removed) by a former employee at Boulder Media who’s responsible for the new movie/show for MLP.

(I like to think the pony above it a fun nod to us, the adult collectors and community and it makes love whom ever this particular pony is.)

There’s still a LOT of rumours surrounding both of these bits of (possible) G5 news. But my gut holds that it may hold to be closer to the truth. For at least the movie to tie into G5 and new series.

I just saw those on EqD! Wasn’t sure about mentioning it here. I’m inclined to believe the animatic is really made as a scene for the movie, just a really early draft. So it could be completely irrelevant now, buuut... I really hope the G5 cartoon will be in a completely new universe but it’s a good idea to bridge the two by making G4 like, legends that this father is telling his daughter.

As for the logo, if it’s real: It’s probably just a simpler version of it but if it is the full thing (simplifying logos is the ‘big thing’ nowadays) it looks cute. Keeping the rainbow that’s been around for a while but getting rid of the heart (RiP heart).

As a G1 collector, I love that they’ve kept the rainbow in the logo. The Rainbow of Light was a big thing in G1 and to have it slightly referenced in MLP’s later gens I think is lovely.

But yes, I agree that it’s likely and early and scrapped but of the potential movie theme but I like it all the same. It looks like they may be going to route of “hey, these are things that has happened but this is where we are at now.”

The new logo reminds me of Bewitched for some reason. I wish they'd ditch the pink and make it multi colored.

Why does that weird not-pony thing standing over them look like it has an arm and elbow?

I thought the pink was just a vector a fan made. The one we actually saw on Taobao was white. And I still think it’s a simplified version of the “real” logo. But again I wouldn’t be surprised if it is just that.
And I’m glad they kept the rainbow too. Rainbows and ponies are so linked, lets keep it that way. But now the G3 logo kinda stands out, being the only one with no rainbow symbol.

If those human-faced mutants are an indication of what the next gen will look like, Hasbro ain't getting any of my money. That is seriously gross!

My dude, it's a rough animatic. Each drawing needs to be drawn quickly and is just meant to show what movement they want.

This doesn't really say anything about the art style G5 may or may not have, but I know that the artist Imalou (https://twitter.com/ImalouArt) did some freelance character design work on the upcoming movie, and how "human" the ponies she draws vary from drawing to drawing, but she has quite a few that look more horselike.

*shrugs* She works for the company and will draw them how they want. Hasbro has been doing their best to take the pony outta my little pony and I'm sick and tired of it. I came to love this brand for pretty fantasy horses. Not ugly people-beasts

Could you please explain to me the reasoning of "Hasbro is trying to make ponies less ponylike"? I've heard this around a lot and I genuinely don't get it, since it's really only been that way since G4. G3.5 is just a stylization of G3 so I'm not really counting it. G4 looks the way it does because Lauren Faust designed them, who is a cartoonist so they were made more with animation in mind than toys (hm...). There's an interview in the "Art of Equestria" artbook where she says when she was designing the ponies, she tried drawing them to look more like G1 at first but it didn't look right, and then she sketched a pony that resembled G4's style, and then it clicked for her. And then G4.5 is a stylization of THAT stylization. And even if the G4.5 heads look like cats with wigs the hooves are a little more defined and horsey than in G4. And then most of the G5 concept art from the leaks back in 2017 went for something a bit more "horsey" than G4 looked, with maybe 1 or 2 exceptions.

(Sorry for all of these run-on sentences)
