This tumblr is dedicated to My Little Pony. I post my own art here, my collection, and the occassional collection reblog from people whom I think have really nice set ups that are inspiring. I'll also reblog pictures of my wants and stuff I see while I'm out from time to time.
If you don't want to sift through the blog when it gets bigger, you can always sift through the art tag in the navigation. Do you like my art and want a piece of your own? I will do in exchange for money or ponies from my wishlist. Just send me a note.
So, some of you who collect older ponies, specifically G1, may remember the Firefly with Illustrated Book that was set to release this spring. For those who don’t collect previous generations; Firefly was used as the inspiration for the MLP Fim Rainbow Dash reincarnation.
Now, short history lesson aside, collectors were expecting this;
However, when the ponies started to arrive, this is what we all saw;
The small mutant pony on the left would be the Firefly which was greatly anticipated by so many people. Why the switch? No clue, especially since so many people are fully aware that Hasbro has the old molds. This one looks very much like what some call fakies.
So far, no one on Amazon really had anything nice to say. One reviewer and G4 (MLP FiM) collector did say that they understood why people were upset, but that it’s important to know what you’re getting. But that would be the problem. All of the previous gen collectors knew what to expect from what was essentially advertised as a re-release mini collectible.

Ok, so I’ve been saying that I’m going to trade art for ponies for those who like my art. I’ve been figuring out my exchange rate and it’ll be going online as soon as I’m finished with my graphs. I’ll be including shipping estimates in with my exchnge rate.
I’m doing a texta one and an image only one for those who don’t want to scroll through walls of text. Heads up though, I’m specifically looking for mini figures (blind bag sizes) and plushies. As for the brushables, I prefer the big fashion style ones with a few exceptions. I’m looking to trade for Applejack, Nightmare Moon, Princess Luna, Princess Cadence, and Rarity mostly. After them, Shining Armour, Zecora, DJ Pon-3, Thunderlane, and Derpy/Bubbles.
Sorry for the lack of MLP related text posts. I haven’t been doing too much as far as going out and looking ponies goes. I did briefly go to the store over the weekend to run some errands and the lack of wave 9 ponies has me worried. I say this especially due to the fact that I’ve heard that wave ten will be coming soon.
I have however seen masses of wave 8 ponies available at my local Wal-mart and you already know that there are tons at my local Toys R Us if you saw the video that I uploaded a few weeks ago. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on Nurse Snowheart and Fluttershy with actual Fluttershy hair. Actually I wanted more than one because I was going to send one to a friend since we’re doing an art trade and I wanted to add something extra, but I just can’t find them.
Meanwhile, I found out that Build a Bear did an early release of Rarity, Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo, but I’m going to wait on picking those up. I should be focusing on trying to get to the MLP Fair this year which is what I’m going to do. Should it turn out that I can’t go after saving up money-please consider commissioning me- then maybe I’ll put some of it toward the collection.
