So, that being said. They are SO CUTE. I really wanted to collect the crystal ponies for my collection, so they were the first things I looked for in the case. I now have them all! Yay!
But for any collector, ESPECIALLY the kids who Collected all the Core Friends already, these little guys are pure gold. The poses, both standing on rear feet, or centered on all four, are beautiful and distinctive from any other pony, and the paintwork is beautiful.
Bear in mind these ponies are EXTREMELY rare. Of all the people selling ponies on Ebay I haven't found any of these, and I'm shipping domestically, NOT international, so you save on both shipping plus you have the peace of mind in knowing that you can track your package from point A, right to your front door.
Mostly I just LOVE these little darlings. They're better made and sturdier than the G4 ponies, which frankly, are likely to gt mangled just prying them out of the package if you aren't careful.
Plus I have a lot of love for the ponies chosen. They each have great personalities and are such FUN in the movies. I'm so psyched to have these! I can't wait to start shipping them out for sale!
