1. Which designs do you like the best for each character? Overall?




2. What are your feelings about Twilight as an earth pony?


3. What are your feelings about the other race changes?


4. Any other topics you want to discuss?

1. If they can really animate something so detailed, I really like the second designs as a whole. Still, overall, the sixth designs I think are actually my favorite, oddly. I like how different they look, yet still capturing the personalities of the different ponies. And the lack of cutie marks is both intriguing and hopeful that they have plenty of new and original ideas for the series.

2. Twilight as an earth pony, when I first found out, seemed pretty odd and worrying. Taking something so integral to her character away seemed like a foolish thing to do. In some of the art, she still has the magic cutie mark, so we might even see Earth pony magic. Though I could be just fine with a technology-based nerd Twi. There are plenty of ways to have an Earth pony with a bookworm personality. It does kinda help that I have a soft spot for earth ponies in the first place.

It's a big change, but I think that is something that can happen. The reason MLP has been in a decline recently is more due to new writers' ideas conflicting with old ones. (At least that's how I've been seeing it) And we don't even know if the same writers are working on this one.

3. The other race changes (Fluttershy and Pinkie) seem just fine to me. Pinkie as a pegasus is no Surprise (sorry, I had to), and seeing Fluttershy as a unicorn doesn't really change her all that much, honestly. And it's better than changing her into an earth pony, since it keeps her bucking the stereotype of her tribe. (Like I'm hoping Twilight will do for Earth ponies.)

4. There's been some rumors about Applejack becoming more "urban." Well, apart from the fact that G5 is still in planning stages, and nothing is solid, and that none of her designs here really show that she's anything other than what she was before...

I don't think I'd mind that much... if they also changed the other characters. Perhaps everypony, including Applejack, had the same personalities, but grew up in different situations.

This is a new generation. We don't know the history of this new Equestria. We don't know how magic works here. We don't even know if there are going to be Princesses, at least not in the manner we have them now.

I had no idea they were planning on a gen 5.

1. My favorites are :
Twilight : 2nd line
Applejack : 2nd line
Pinkie Pie : 3rd line
Rainbow Dash : 3rd line
Rarity : 2nd line (although a bit too pale to my taste)
Fluttershy : 2nd line.

The unicorn tails of the 4th line are pretty interesing though. And I really dislike the very last line.  X3

2. I really like Twi as a unicorn so it's hard for me to picture her as an earth pony but I guess it could make sense. Besides, earth ponies are often underestimated, so putting the spotlight on an earth pony with a magic cutie mark who's also the "main" character would maybe solve that issue. And show everypony that earth ponies are awesome too.  ;)

3. Fluttershy as a unicorn... I would have rather seen her as an earth pony, but I guess it doesn't change much. However, her and Rarity have very long elegant manes and soft, discreet color themes which doesn't provide a lot of variety for that sample of the unicorn type.
The same can be said about pegasi, as RD and Pinkie have the most "energetic" color themes. So basically, the impression it gives is that unicorns are discreet and elegant and pegasi are "flashy" and energetic. Instead of 4 characters it's almost like you only get 2.  :l But that's only what I can tell by looking at the designs...

4. AJ doesn't have her hat anymore! Maybe she'll stop speaking with that inintelligible accent too!
Playing as Swirling Mind (unicorn), Raspberry Bubbles (earth pony) and Silent Swirl (pegasus).

row 4 has to be my favorite, 100% because of the "classical" unicorn designs (lion's tail, cloven hooves, etc) and i love the tail feathers and unique wing shapes on the pegasi.  row 4 and 6 are definitely the most appealing, and look like they would work best "in motion."

not sure why theyre keeping the same base characters but dramatically changing them tho  :I  
I would just pick totally new ponies !!

You can totally tell which pony is which artists' favorite lol

Twilight sparkle is based off both a g1 unicorn and a g3 earth pony, but if theyre keeping the base traits as well as the characters im not sure why they would bother :/

ALSO WHERE IS AJ'S HAT !!!! I NEED ANSWERS  :l
