Remembering the Past by TheShadowStone Remembering the Past by TheShadowStone
"You people who are for the war, you need the protestors, because they make the country look like it's made of sane, caring individuals. And you people who are anti-war? You need these flag-wavers, because if our whole country was made up of soft protesters, we'd get taken down in a second"

-"Eric Cartman", South Park 701, "I'm A Little Bit Country"

Just a friendly reminder; we wouldn't have the ponies we have today without those who inspired them. G1 inspired G4 heavily, so those who have stuck around for all 3 remakes saw these ponies become those who many love today. Those who love G4 must respect the artist, writers, and the creators who created the ponies who inspired Lauren Faust for our generation.

I do not own My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

Yeah, G1 isn't really bad. It's just not as "free-minded" as FiM. The same way, they went too far on the girlyzation on G3.

It's technically just considered Friendship is Magic and Classic, not G4 and G1. Hasbro doesn't use those labels, really. I know collectors use them, but I'm just not sure why the labels are so common.

So as you said, collectors use them, so there's different ways to specify. I see nothing wrong with it.

You have no idea how much I love this! :heart: While I prefer Gen 4 in terms of characters and story, I still like this generation of Ponies. :) It's not as bad as other people say it is. :) I also like the art style from Gen 1, too. :heart:

Ok, ok, sorry... I didn't mean to sound so rude. It is, after all, a great and accurate piece of artwork, I just am not fond of the style of the first seasons. But of course, my opinion isn't everyone's and I'm sure that many people appreciate the style.

You're welcome :) I wasn't around for this generation [G1], but I felt an homage to the prior generations was needed by this point in MLP:FiM's run, to celebrate this generation's popularity, and to remind everyone of the stepping stones that got us this far.

I've loved these silly ponies all my life. I got out of it in G2 and I completely ignored G3 but I came back for G4. I'm so confused by the hate people have for G1. It makes no sense to me and makes me so sad ;___;

I think a main 'turn-off' is the more anatomically correct bodies, and perhaps sometimes how they were more 'girly' but...eh.

There's something that bothers me about Rainbow Dash's face. I can't put my finger on it though...
But I like this crossover, the G4 ponies look pretty good in G1 style :D

There were limited poses I could find of any animated G1 ponies, so I had to pick and choose. I felt maybe if I spent a while longer I could've found a better pose, but in the end I only found about 8 screenshots to reference poses. :/

I'm gonna be honest: even though I hate mlp, I do think it would be kind of cool for the series to do a "throwback episode" where everything looks like mlp from the 80's.

Fajnie, że mamy podobne zainteresowania X3

Myślałam, że wszyscy wolą nową wersję kucyków, że wszyscy zapomnieli o starej. 

Naszczęście są jeszcze jakieś osoby na świecie, które lubią i tą wersję, gdzie kucyki były bardziej ,,koniowate''XD

Ja lubię wszystkie wersje po równo. Do G3 nic nie mam, ale najbardziej nie cierpię G2 - w ogóle była z nią jakaś bajka? Chyba nie, tylko figurki.

A lubisz G3.5?
