The My Little Pony toys released between 1997 and 2003 have long been shrouded in mystery. This second generation (G2) was unusual and, between a completely different style and a limited run, collectors didn’t know what they should be looking for, let alone what they were missing. Information about these collectible toys, released through Hasbro’s Kenner Toys arm, was scattered, confused and incomplete. . . until now! With the release of The My Little Pony G2 Collector’s Inventory, Summer Hayes has compiled the first illustrated guide of its kind with large, full-color photos detailing all the ponies, playsets and accessories to give many collectors and fans their first look into the lost generation of MLP. With checklists so collectors can keep track of their want lists as well as a price guide for both loose and mint in box sets to help with buying and selling G2 items, Hayes has collected all of the knowledge about this 6 year span together for the very first time. This new release is the perfect companion piece to the G1 and G3 guides from The My Little Pony Collector’s Inventory series.
So I asked a friend who was going to be at the MLP Fair this past weekend to grab me one of the Fair exclusives so here’s hoping she comes through. But I went to look on eBay just to see what the current market price was and, to my shock, nada, nothing!
Surely there is at least one opportunistic convention goer with one that is interested is letting unsuspecting people on eBay pay out the nose for one.
You people disappoint me. I would have bought whatever the limit was and then bought that same number again under my husband’s name and been wildly selling and trading those puppies like a madwoman right now.
So did you get one this weekend? Is she as pretty as she looks in the photo? Why aren’t you trying to sell her to me on eBay right now, hmmm? Do tell!
Have you seen me?
While in past years the annual My Little Pony convention (called MLP Fair) has gotten some great media coverage, this year has been pretty quiet which is sad for those of us who couldn’t go this year (such as myself).
The only article covering this event is this Examiner post which was written before the event began.
So those of us that could not attend in person will have to rely on those of you that did attend to clue us in on all the good stuff we missed. If you are going to post a recap in your blog, please share the link with us below or just give us your thoughts or pictures in the comments section.
This is one case where what happens in Vegas really shouldn’t stay in Vegas so share, people!
