I've managed not to buy any, but a part of me wonders how these miniatures would look on a shelf of Gashapon figures and Smallest transformers.

I don't have any - haven't got any new toys in forever, so... don't plan to, either, but you never know.

So... am I the only one here who's successfully managed to not buy any ponies?

As recently noted, I also don't have any, though I did make a couple refrigerator magnets out of the colored Lauren Faust Derpy sketch.

I haven't got any, either. I enjoy the show and the fanart, but the toys never appealed to me. If Hasbro produced some higher-quality figures, I might go for it; but I'm pretty sure that won't happen.

I have a couple blind bag toys. I had to get Minty. I'll probably get the sets with Gilda and Granny Smith, too.

Overall, though, I've been avoiding G4 toys. IMO, they do not make great toys. The models look great in the cartoon, "in motion", but frankly sort of strange as toys. The blind bags at least look sort of lively; Hasbro picked the most boring pose in existence for the brushable ponies. Plus the unicorns have weirdly small horns.

I love how every thread is derailing into a different topic already covered by another thread.

Yeah, noticed that too. Several times I've been looking for a quote but just couldn't find it because the coversation could have been from any one of these threads. Oh well! What's a message board without derailment?

It's not just this place. The site I recently switched from was notorious for topic drift.

No, topic drift is a defining characteristic of good conversation.
