So as G2 ponies became a thing of the past, did you just sort of mellow out about them? You just seem to post a fair number of pictures and I remember the old Moondancer's Dream site. (I always thought the babies were kinda cute, really, but we never got them in the US of course.)
I strongly disliked the G2 ponies when they first appeared, but I really started appreciating that generation around the time G3 went into the whole “Crystal Princess” thing. MLP has always had a lot of pink, purple, and white, but “Crystal Princess” came along and suddenly almost every pony was pink, purple, or white and the symbols got more and more stereotypical.
Like, I’m fine with crowns and flowers and bows, but that doesn’t mean there shouldn’t be anything BUT crowns, flowers, and bow symbols. I honestly think Crystal Princess was the beginning of the end for G3.
G2 had some really great color combinations and symbols so, yes, it grew on me. Although I never did actually start collecting them.
I’d like to get Princess Silver Rain and Princess Golden Light (the first one) someday, though.
I’ve slowly come to realize that I’m only really enthusiastic about the MLP generations that have more prominent nostrils. The others don’t look “horsey” enough for me. (Talking about the toys here, animation is a different ball of wax.)
Except G3.5. Which has the nostrils but I still don’t like it.
Sassaflash is a micropony, a fourth generation breed who can function on a pittance of the resources needed by the larger, sturdier ponies.
She’s also one of the fastest flyers. If she starts a high dive she can pull off a special move which pulls a tide of lightning after her, to devastating effect. Non-pegasi are especially vulnerable to this attack.
However, Sassaflash often squanders this advantage, giving into her major weakness—her mouth. She simply cannot resist taunting her enemies. This speedy pegasus often hovers over the battlefield, shouting things like, “Hey Decepticreep, did you swap bodies with a gargoyle, or is that your face?”
Sassaflash has been lectured on this behavior many times, but the lesson never seems to take hold for this cheerful, if not exceptionally bright, pegasus. She’s quite popular with the more light-hearted ponies around Autobrumby base, being particular friends with Party Time and Light Heart. Just don’t compare her to Firefly—she hates being compared to the Wingleader. Especially do not mention the rumor that she was cloned from her.
Currently on probation and being forced to run on a treadmill to power the base’s generators.
