    Copying logo layout and character design is getting into potentially dangerous legal territory. I'm guessing the company operates out of somewhere like China and will mysteriously vanish if the lawyers attack.

    I see fakies around all the time. The ones back in the 80s and 90s were actually cute sometimes. Here's a Tara Toys one (my own photo, sorry for potato-quality but I was lazy and used the eBay copy):

    The ones nowadays can be downright terrifying. Those glass-eyed ones give me the heebie-jeebies.

    I have seen counterfeit MLP toys in a bazaar when I was at Turkey sorry I don't have any photos but I remember the quality looked really bad much worse than the official Hasbro ones. Actually I'm pretty sure everything they sold at that bazaar was counterfeit :p

    This is THE My Pretty pony which started off MLP, released in 1981/82. They are actually very highly sought after, this coloring in particular is very HTF and valuable to collectors.

    Here is a link to some fakies and their histories. http://the-fakie-hideout.weebly.com/my-mlp-collection.html

    Looking that face, I think with a color change it'd be a perfect Eeyore.

    They came so close! If they just had a slightly better artist (Just steal art from the show) and corrected the one typo, that could be passed off as genuine.

    I recently found some fakies in my local morrisons. While I'd not normally buy these, but I got this £8 pack which had 8 various sized ponies.
    After brushing and braiding their tails and manes, they turned out to be ideal for my toddler twins who are too young to play with my g1 ponies like their big sister. They love these. My smallest Freyja is happy to sit for hours stroking its mane or making horsey noises as she makes it walk around the living room <3
