Summary

TLDRIn this intriguing video, the creator explores the peculiar discrepancies between the My Little Pony TV show characters and their toy counterparts. Notable examples include Applejack's missing signature hat in most toy versions, and Princess Celestia's toys being pink instead of her iconic white, possibly due to marketing preferences. The video also addresses the odd portrayal of Spike crawling on all fours, a posture not observed in the show. The Dazzlings, who are sirens in the show, are depicted as ponies in their toy form, likely to boost sales. The most bizarre inconsistency is with Sapphire Shores, whose toy version is a unicorn with different colored hair and no clothes, contrasting with her earth pony character in the series. Despite these inconsistencies, a more accurate representation of Sapphire Shores was later introduced in the Friendship is Magic collection, though still missing her signature headpiece. The video concludes with an invitation for viewers to share any additional inconsistencies they've noticed, hinting at a potential sequel. The creator expresses gratitude for the support and subscribers gained from their content.

🚀 Introduction to My Little Pony Toy Inconsistencies

The video script introduces the topic of inconsistencies between the My Little Pony TV show characters and their corresponding toy versions. It clarifies that the focus will be on the differences in the toys rather than variations in character stylizations by different brands. The script also sets the stage for discussing five specific examples of these inconsistencies.

🎩 Applejack's Missing Hat in Toys

The script discusses the notable absence of Applejack's signature hat in almost every toy version of the character. It speculates that the lack of a hat might be due to the reusability of the toy model through recoloring, which would not be possible if the hat were included. Some non-recolored Applejack toys also lack the hat, and when present, the hat is incorrectly depicted as blue instead of brown.

🌈 Color Inconsistencies with Princess Celestia and Spike

The script highlights the color inconsistencies in toys of Princess Celestia, where many are pink instead of her canonical white coat. It suggests that pink might be chosen for better sales, although it is frustrating that such a basic color is incorrect. The script also mentions Spike toys that depict him crawling on all fours, which is inconsistent with his portrayal in the show, possibly designed to serve as a pet for Twilight Sparkle.

🦄 The Dazzlings' Equestrian Counterparts as Ponies

The script addresses the inconsistency regarding the Dazzlings from 'Rainbow Rocks', who are depicted as sirens in their equestrian counterparts but are made as ponies for the toys. It questions the decision to include pony versions on the cover when they are not actually ponies in the show, and notes that Adagio, one of the Dazzlings, has two different toy designs, as a unicorn and an earth pony.

🔍 Sapphire Shore's Baffling Toy Design

The script describes the most confusing inconsistency, which is the toy version of Sapphire Shore. The toy has different colored hair, a different shape, and lacks clothes or a hat. Most peculiarly, while the character is an earth pony in the show, the toy is a unicorn. The script attempts to confirm the character's identity by comparing their cutie marks, but due to poor image quality or lighting, it remains inconclusive. However, a more accurate version of Sapphire Shore is mentioned to have been released in the 'Friendship is Magic' collection, albeit still missing her distinctive head feature.

📺 Conclusion and Acknowledgment of Subscribers

The script concludes by acknowledging other potential inconsistencies in the My Little Pony toy line and inviting viewers to share their observations in the comments. It also expresses gratitude for reaching 200 subscribers after uploading just one video, showing appreciation for the viewers' engagement and promising more My Little Pony content in the future.

My Little Pony has a bit of a reputation

play00:02

for basically being a toy brand first

play00:04

and a TV show second however a lot of

play00:06

their toys are pretty strange to say the

play00:08

least so in today's video we'll be

play00:09

taking a look at five of the weirdest

play00:11

differences between the show version and

play00:12

toy versions of the characters note that

play00:14

this list will not include any examples

play00:16

of different character stylizations from

play00:17

the show because that's not really an

play00:19

inconsistency that's just different

play00:20

brands doing their thing

play00:22

Applejack differs from other ponies from

play00:24

the series thanks to her signature hat

play00:26

however almost every toy version of

play00:28

Applejack does not come with a hat which

play00:29

just kind of looks empty I think that

play00:31

this might be because a bunch of these

play00:32

Minifigures are all recolors meaning

play00:34

that if the Applejack model had a hat

play00:35

they wouldn't be able to recolor it but

play00:37

then again some Applejack toys that are

play00:38

not recolors also don't have the hat but

play00:40

makes this even more confusing to me as

play00:41

how when Applejack is given a hat it's

play00:43

usually blue instead of brown on the

play00:46

topic of inconsistencies in color a lot

play00:48

of toys of Princess Celestia are pink

play00:49

instead of her usual white coat I

play00:51

imagine this is because Pink Just sells

play00:52

better as a toy for a little girls than

play00:54

Whitewood though it is pretty

play00:55

frustrating how they get a basic color

play00:57

like that wrong even though there's a

play00:58

lot more show active versions of

play00:59

Celestia as you can see here but it is

play01:01

pretty odd seeing how the boxes clearly

play01:03

show her as being white when the Giant

play01:05

toy inside the box is clearly pink

play01:07

for some reason some merchandise of

play01:09

Spike has him crawling on all fours I

play01:11

don't recall Spike ever being on all

play01:13

fours in the entire show and I really

play01:15

don't have a clue as to why they made

play01:16

toys with him like this I think they

play01:17

might have designed him like this to

play01:18

give Twilight a pet or something for

play01:20

kids who like giving their toys pets but

play01:22

I really have no other guests other than

play01:23

that remember the Dazzlings from Rainbow

play01:26

Rocks you know even though we mostly see

play01:27

them as humans they're equestrian

play01:29

counterparts are actually sirens and not

play01:30

ponies well the Bucks are for their

play01:32

dolls and to depict them as ponies

play01:33

rather than Sirens even though you know

play01:35

they're not ponies I guess it makes

play01:37

sense why they would do this since I

play01:38

don't think having these on the cover

play01:39

would sell as well as ponies would

play01:40

however then the question is why would

play01:42

they even put the Pony version here at

play01:44

all to top it all off Adagio had two

play01:46

instances of this as they designed her

play01:48

once as a unicorn and once as an earth

play01:49

pony Ali Sonata when she was seen on

play01:52

this card she remained as an earth pony

play01:54

and as for the weirdest inconsistency in

play01:56

this list we have this Pony you might be

play01:58

confused on who this even is but

play02:00

according to the card it comes with this

play02:01

is supposed to be Sapphire Source you

play02:04

might not remember Sapphire Source since

play02:05

she only appears in like two episodes

play02:06

but one look at her show design will

play02:08

instantly make into a double take the

play02:10

toy version has different colored hair a

play02:12

different shape and no clothes or a hat

play02:14

but strangest of all the software Source

play02:16

in the show is an earth pony but this

play02:18

figure is a unicorn at this point you

play02:20

might be thinking that these are just

play02:21

two completely different characters who

play02:22

happen to share the same name as each

play02:24

other so I realized that the best way to

play02:25

really know this for sure would be to

play02:27

compare their cutie marks unfortunately

play02:29

it seems as if the people who designed

play02:30

Sapphire Source just really love going

play02:32

out of their way to not show her cutie

play02:33

mark So this toy version of her has our

play02:35

cutie mark shown in plain view

play02:36

unfortunately every picture of the

play02:38

minifigure version is either pretty low

play02:40

quality or has bad lighting so it's

play02:41

pretty hard to tell if they're the same

play02:43

one though from what I can make out they

play02:45

seem to be slightly different though

play02:46

they both have a clam shell shape that I

play02:48

think is similar enough for them to be

play02:50

the same character luckily though we

play02:51

ended up getting a much more show

play02:53

accurate version of her in the

play02:54

Friendship is Magic collection but

play02:56

unfortunately she's still missing her

play02:57

funny little head

play02:58

and that'll do it for today's video of

play03:00

course there are other inconsistencies

play03:01

in the world of My Little Pony toys feel

play03:03

free to let me know down in the comments

play03:04

if you know of any and I might make a

play03:06

part two to this video and also I want

play03:07

to take this time to thank you guys so

play03:08

much for like 200 subscribers just from

play03:10

uploading one video I mean I'm really

play03:12
