    Sorry, daft question, but who here collects generation 1 ponies and where do you look for them? :)
    I also collect and love G4 ponies too. And you can find them everywhere :p
    But I'm also looking for G1 ponies too. I've been looking on ebay and etsy. Anywhere else you'd recommend?

    Try maybe charity shops, car-boot sales, that kind of thing? I think Ebay is probably the best place though.
    Ed.: Sometimes at conventions you'll find stalls with a lot of secondhand toys, I've found G1 pones at MCM before.

    Charity shop finds seem to be rare, probably because the ardent collectors get there first! I do have a G3 Sweetie Belle I found at a local charity shop for something like 59p, but that's the exception. I can't remember seeing G1 ponies anywhere, though I'll confess I haven't looked that hard.

    Apart from eBay, the UK PonyCon convention is probably the place to find older-generation ponies in this country, but of course that's only a once-a-year thing, plus a fairly large financial commitment in itself!
