Fright-Mares
« on: April 02, 2015, 05:05:18 PM »




I would be all over these if they were centaur style CAMs or something like that, if not full dolls. As it is, they're a pass for me. Cool packaging, tho.


ETA: What happened to their "cutie marks"? Didn't want trouble with Hasbro, Mattel?

Well, rats. I thought they had said these weren't going to be called Fright-Mares and held out hope that a full-sized line was still coming. :(

I like the artwork, but not the actual dolls (thankfully lol! I have enough in my must have list)

Aww, they got rid of their symbols :( I mean, I understand why (it probably *would* have been pushing it a bit too much, haha), but I liked the symbols much better than the weird gradient legs they've got now. o_O;

I do not like these at all. They look like cheap McDonald's toys. :/Why are they all hybrids, too?

I'd kill for some decent, non-hybrid, well detailed, articulated little MLP-esque centaurs... But not these.
Also Esbayne on the MLP Arena, PonyIsland, and pretty much everywhere else.

They look a little too detailed to be McDs toys. Also I think the packaging is making them seem smaller than they are. Also their faces are really cute. I wonder if their heads would work on Equestria Girls dolls.

If you look at the size of the person's thumb compared to the heads of the dolls, you can kind of get a feel for their size. They look pretty small. I did hear they were going to be really mini compared to regular MH dolls. Maybe vinyl size, is my guess?

It just seems sad that such cute faces will be passed up just because some people are not crazy about the body they have been given. I'm hoping they will fit Equestria Girls bodies and not be so small that Polly Pocket sized bodies are the only rebody options since it's hard to find them in non human colors. Also I hope that they will be inexpensive.

Tho I wonder if they are actually hybrids even tho they have wings like Avea. Maybe there is another way that Centaurs can get wings?

These are poo and I currently dislike them...  I'm hoping seeing them in person will change that and I bet I will be picking them up anyway for my niece who has suddenly fallen in love with Centaurides.

Hmm, I'll still be buying them because I want to support any kind of detailed non-humanised release... But I'm not best pleased with them. Still got molded shirts, molded tails, molded arms and legs. The shoulder/hip articulation is something but not much. They look extra weird with that gradient attracting your eye to their hip and then not having a mark there. And the "Fright Mares" logo is a horseshoe with wings on it... I was hoping there would be non-hybrid taurs in the future.

Aery Evenfall, Pyxis Prepstockings(?)... I wonder who the other two are. The other trademarks assumed to be with the Fright-Mares were Pitch Firehoof, Bay Tidechaser and Frets Quartzmane. Purple/black skeleton was assumed to be Pitch before this leak, and I think the name Aery Evenfall was assumed to be with EAH. :P

Ultimately I think I'm too much of a sucker for centaurs to pass these up. XD

Avea has a 'cutie mark' so can't see it being a TM problem that made them decide not to do it, perhaps it's on the other side?

I'm really not a fan of these they look like pound shop dolls!
