Watch Out for Fake Equestria Girls Minis
Every time Hasbro releases a new concept for any of their toys it's just a matter of time before fake versions arise on the internet. EBay and Alibaba/Taobao used to be popular platforms for the latest fakies, but as of late Instagram became the latest trend for selling bootleg products. One more example of this practice are these new fake Equestria Girls Minis figures with the inappropriate name "My Fun Hose".
Some of the figures look pretty decent, but some others have weird accessories (like fake Blind Bag ponies, or the fact that Twilight Sparkle doesn't even wear her skirt) and another bunch that just looks odd, like Rarity and Fluttershy.
For some it might be an open door that these are bootleg products, but without the packaging it's a whole lot harder to see the difference. The best way to differentiate these from real figures are:
- Compare the colors
- Compare the accessories
- Compare the plastic (the fakes are more glossy)

Disclaimer: We do not promote buying and/or selling fake products and this post is meant as a warning for people to know the difference between real and fake My Little Pony products.

Note: We're still working on a full fakie quest episode, this is just a quick PSA.

Thanks to pega_ponycorn.offcl and Tomo for the info!

  1. Twi does have a skirt - it's tangled in her hair. Even unboxed, these monstrosities should be easy to spot. Plastic shrinkage, wrong colors, crappy joints, etc.

  2. oh well, as some people say, when something is successful, wild imitations appear!, XD.
    Well, they not bad, but yes, they looks very fragile and with painting issues, oh well.

    1. I don't think so as they are smaller than the originals and low quality easy-breakable plastic.

  4. Wouldn't fall for 'em; when you zoom in, you see just how badly made they are even if the designs are basically fine. Dash's hair is the most different, obviously. However, I like the look of the pony versions of "Rainbow Dash" and "Applejack" that're included; they look like new characters. xD Pink Rarity too, actually. And Twilight sans pink hair stripes.

  5. I have to say, I chuckled at "My Fun Hose". I think the various botched names of the bootleg toys are almost as entertaining as the abominations they represent.
