Got my FiM posters through the post this week, they will stay in a safe place until I can find somewhere to frame them and put them up

Yesterday in a store called Family Bargains (which is a bigger version of the ’99pence store’) I found they were selling G4 Playsets so I picked this one up. Until I can get my room back it’s staying in the box

Carboot today, might already have the Care Bear, the book was I think today’s best find, honestly need to ID the G3’s I brought home.

Not much else to say, had a job interview last week that I don’t think went too badly but I’ll have to wait, I have an ‘interview’ next Tuesday with an animal shelter to do some volunteer work on Fridays.

G1 Twilight and Friends

Photobucket

I realise my photography here isn’t the best.

I got this through on Friday this is part of a pony trade. I traded a Hair Do Bangles for a G1 Twilight who needs some restoration work (as you can see) and as you can see Twilight has some travelling buddies.

And if anyone’s interested I’ve just popped this onto my art blog if you want to take a look

A Good Start!

So a little bit before Christmas I did a trade with Princess_Luvlee over on the MLPArena and today her half finally arrived!

Mmm candy….

A close up of the main girl herself, G1 Movie version Firefly.

Here she is with my other Firelies. She’s one of my favourite G1’s as you could probably tell:P

But there’s more
Photobucket
She made a little custom of one of my persona ponies, Clipper, and gave her a little Assassin Hood!
Photobucket
Here she is hoodless.

She’s made some friends already as you can see. 😉

And one last thing.

One of the extras I got was a little plastic kennel which as you can see has a LPS type toy in it of a little cat. Named Snowball apparently.

So, it would seem this years off to a pretty good start!
In non pony ‘real world’ stuff I sent off an application to a kennel job, so now we play the waiting game. If you’ll excuse me I’ll be trying desperately to find my way into Narnia via the wardrobe…

Of Mini Assassins and Flying Horses

Photobucket
I meant to post about this a while back but forgot. I found this in Game just before Christmas and grabbed one for me and my best friend. He now lives on my backpack to gaurd against Templars.
And also, look at this beautiful flying horse, can’t you see her maaaaaagical wings?

Sweet, Sweet Nostalgia

Okay, so I had time to burn before college so what did myself and my friend do? (why go shopping of course :P) and I took a look in a charity shop that had recentley opened, they had no real ponies but they did have this…
Photobucket
Now, when I was a little girl and video games were still massive boxes which contained a jewel case CD I was given this. I spent much happy times playing it until one day the CD broke and it wouldn’t save my data. But now I’m happy again as I can play with my virtual ponies as it will run on a Vista laptop. I still want to throtle the ‘helpful’ butterfly though she’s annoying. D:

And I went into a department store toy department and found something else rather awesome

Lanard Pet Zoo! I’ve been wanting some of these guys as soon as I saw them. They only had the giraffe, the dog and the cat as singles. The zebra was available as part of a big (but rather cheap) playset which I don’t have the room foor. These guys are awesome!

And I Shall Call Her Mini Me…

Did a very brief charity shop crawl this morning (went into three of the ones in my local highstreet that are pretty much next to each other) and found this.
Photobucket
For those who don’t recognise her she is a Bratz Pony. I never liked the dolls (frankly they looked rather ugly) but I’ve come to like the ponies and the horses that were part of the range. I think I like the ponies as they’re ‘so ugly they’re kind of cute’. Why Mini Me? Because she’s the tiny version of an identical big Bratz styling pony that I got ages ago.

Oh yeah and I unearthed these old photos of a carosel that was at a local funfair quite a while ago. Cool huh?

That’s it for now, I’m counting down the days to Doomsday, uh I mean college induction day which is next Monday. Two more years… just two more years… XD

Ah the Joy and Humour of Knockoffs

So yesterday on the way to college a new shop was opening. In place of the Woolworth’s in Canterbury there was a new Poundland opening.

So of course I had to go into there with my friend and see what if any fakies they had and other cheap toys. Once I have a chance I shall be adding some images.

They had a bunch of transformers fakes, one lot had a rather amusing name ‘Vanguard Defenders’ and had ripped off the logo of Transformers Animated

Some odd ‘warrior’ toys calling themsevles ‘Legend of the Dragon’ and they were riding:

An elephant

A polar bear

A tiger.

Strange.

‘J.I. Joe toys’ I kid you not amongst all the ‘ninjas’ in this range looking badass and riding motorbikes, they have one on a horse.

And now the main point fakies. Under the ‘Funtastic’ brand which I’ve found have a lot of fakies I’ve been finding in stores they have made a G3 mould fakie, in the shop they had a choice of green, pink and peach coloured fakies. They come with the usual assortment of little hair accessories and generally look quite cute. They also had pairs of ‘hard plastic horses’ with plastic manes and tail and guess what? Combs and hair accessories.

I can picture some poor kid trying to brush the plastic hair now. I shall add pictures of the little green fakie with all the G3 mould fakies I am wondering how the heck they seem to have a mould for a G3 yet shrink it down. Maybe I should show off some of my G3 fakies, most are pretty convincing but one is absoutley terrifying. XD

I also picked up a rather cute little Polar Bear Teddy and there’s a bigger toy I found in a charity shop I may show you 😛
