Junko Mizuno My Little Pony!

Admittedly, I am not the biggest Junko Mizuno fan... in fact I don't consider myself a fan at all. But when I came across this mass produced My Little Pony Doll designed by Junko, I was sort of captivated by the design. Being a fan of My Little Pony since I was a kid, the recent designs (you know, those weird, distorted, cheap looking ones) have always left something to be desired. But I kind of dig this one... the color combination, the hood, the translucent hooves, it works. I'm not crazy about the design on the face, but overall I think this Pony looks good for a, you know, modern My Little Pony.

From the Hasbro site:

"Designed by international artist Junko Mizuno, this gorgeous pink-haired pony features intricate body designs, platform “heels” and a “fur” accented bonnet. With her unique look and impressive origin, this pony is sure to occupy an important place in your collection.

Junko Mizuno is an international artist known for her comic inspired art and illustrations. She designed this pony for “The MY LITTLE PONY PROJECT: 25 Ponies for 25 Years,” a collection of 18-inch tall pony figures. Those ponies were auctioned and proceeds went to charity."

  1. Those are some wicked little ponies on the Hasbrotoy site.

    If I had more money to spend on frivolous things, I might be tempted to get a few of the specialty ponies for my pony obsessed daughters.
