A few weeks ago, Hasbro's My Little Pony 2019 SDCC exclusive was revealed to be a two pack between an accurately styled g4.5 Twilight Sparkle brushable, and a G1 representation of Twilight, featuring a a body sculpt similar to G3.
Despite not being true to the actual G1 design, I had kind of wished that there would have been more to this "retro" line-up of figures. Well, it seems as the designers at Hasbro may have expected that! Amazon has listed a brand new My Little Pony Retro Rainbow Mane 6 Collection, featuring the entire G4 main cast, in stylized "G1" looks! Get the listing below.
My Little Pony Retro Rainbow Mane 6 -- 80s-Inspired Collectable Figures with Retro Styling; 6 3-Inch Toys
Pre-Order Price: $24.99
Release Date: September 1st, 2019
"RETRO FORM FACTOR: Retro Rainbow Mane 6 collection features 3-inch pony figures with designs inspired by original 1980s pony form
Personally, I love this idea as the mane six as "G1 ponies," and the personalized cutie marks is just too cute! I just wonder why they didn't use genuine G1 sculpts? Was it to not compete with Basic Fun and their reproductions? It'd seem rather odd if only Basic Fun of the two had access to the sculpts over Hasbro, the original creators.
