New Look (29 Dec 2018)

After years of having the same look, which was very clunkily implemented, I’ve given the site a very MLP-style makeover. And as soon as I can face it, we will migrate over to actual MLPCollection.com url.

Mint on Card (4 Oct 2017)

I’ve never had any great desire for mint on card ponies. In fact, after seeing Toy Story 2, I’ve always felt sorry for toys that have never been played with.

However, today I thought I might as well add “my little pony moc strawberry fair” and “my little pony moc sugarberry” to my eBay alerts, so I could start getting an idea of the pennies I would need to save to buy her.

As it turned out, there was a MOC Strawberry Fair listed as a Buy It Now, for a very reasonable price. I hesitated for a moment or two, but my husband hopped up and down, screaming, “BUY IT! BUY IT RIGHT NOW!”

Well, that might be an exaggeration, but it he was certainly supportive.

And I will shortly have my hands on my very own MOC Strawberry Fair, something I haven’t experienced since about 1987.

Christmas Haul (26 Dec 2016)

Apparently I was a very good girl this year because three people bought me ponies for Christmas: husband; mother in law; and niece.

My mother in law, who freely admits that she sniped a bundle. The job lot was up for sale on fleabay on facebook, and someone had already said they would buy the lot. My mother in law added that she could be there with the cash in ten minutes. So she sniped.

My niece has outgrown her ponies, and is astounded I haven’t done the same.

My husband just knows that nothing makes me smile like surprise ponies.

In the haul were:

  • Baby Toddles/Sniffles (twin of Tuggles/Sticky)
  • Cherry Blossom (II) (2)
  • Cherry Pie
  • Crowning Glory
  • Diamond Rose
  • Half Note, Baby (3)
  • Lovey Dovey
  • Minty (I) (2)
  • Pinkie Pie (3)
  • Pinkie Pie (VIII)
  • Princess Cadence (2)
  • Rainbow Dash (III)
  • Rainbow Dash (Large)
  • Rarity (2)
  • Shining Armor
  • Starsong (Cascading Cutie Mark)
  • Twilight Sparkle (2)

Gen 4: Head Cannon - Celestia (23 Oct 2016)

Celestia is a galloping alcoholic. During It’s About Time, Celestia breezes past Twilight, with a cheery, “Happy Tuesday”. She is doing the walk of shame. (And is still lightly buzzed.) She laughs inappropriately at Discord’s joke about Twilight’s flying during Make New Friends but Keep Discord. Chrysalis kicks her ass in record time in A Canterlot Wedding Part 2, this is because she’s been quaffing champagne all morning.

Shining Armor is a gormless frat boy. He calls Twilight “Twiley” in a really dazed, surfer tone. I always hear the line in This Day Aria as “the wedding he won’t make, he’ll end up marrying the cake…”
