I have a question- from what I've seen, isn't Bright Eyes supposed to be a light blue, and not blue-purple like shown here? Or is there a more purple version of her that I haven't seen? I still love this picture, and all of your art, I'm just a bit confused.
I am sad to say I don't think these are the crystal ponies. I went into a store and saw a Rainbowdash and a PinkiePie key chain toy that said "crystal pony edition". All they were was translucent. So I think, but I hope I am wrong, that the crystal ponies are actually made out of crystal or something. I hope that's not true though because that is plane dumb and uncreative. Here are a couple of links of what I saw [link][link] I really want the twinkle eyed ponies to be reinvented as the crystal ponies. I think that is way more creative then translucent ponies. I hope I am really wrong about this and I am reading into this wrong.
Really? They did not mention that in the series to my knowledge. I know she rules over the crystal kingdom. Also, I did some more research and the crystal ponies are most likely iridescent. At least that is what the upcoming toy line shows. I wander how that will translate into the animation. Will all the crystal ponies have animated sparkles? Either way, whether crystals ponies are translucent, iridescent, or have rhinestone eyes I does not bother me because I love the show. What I want to know who the hell is Emerald Ray!!!! Who is this new green stallion?
He is a part of the toy line. I just do not know where he came from. Or if he has any huge role in the series. He is most likely a crystal pony character that may show up in season three. Or maybe not but he was with the mane six in the toy set.
Tales is in fact G1. Tales aired in 1992 with a total of 26 episodes. G1 as a line ended 1992 as well. G2 Started in 1997. There was a whole 5 years of no ponies between the two generations. It only adds to the confusion that G2 had no cartoon, and in some places, repeats of Tales got put back on TV.
However, the characters from Tales do have toys that are G1. I happen to have Melody from Tales.
