EG Minis: Original or Elements of Friendship version?

Postby badbob001 » Sat Oct 08, 2016 3:51 am

I want to start collecting these and am debating between getting the originals or the Elements of Friendship (EoF) versions that are exclusive to Toys R Us.

EoF version:
Pro:
  • I think the extra glitter streak in their hair looks pretty good for the most part, especially for Applejack, Fluttershy, and Twilight.
  • I do see some improvements with the newer versions such as Rainbow Dash's face cutie mark looks better and Pinkie Pie looks better with both eyes opened.
  • I can buy all the girls right now.
Con:
  • I don't really like the larger cutie-mark on their clothes.
  • If I get sunset shimmer to create the mane 7, she won't match the others.

Original version:
Pro:
  • Design is closer to the source material.
  • Non-glitter sunset won't feel left out.
Con:
  • Almost impossible to find and purchase at non-inflated prices.

I went to the store to check out the EoF sets and saw the quality of the glitter printing can greatly vary. In many cases, the glitter may be printed slightly off so the underlying pattern shows through, creating a shadow effect. Or the edges of the glitter may look splattered or frayed. And that is on top of the (usual?) possible imperfections (plastic bumps on face, scratches to face decal, smudges). So you definitely need to buy this in person than ordering online. The store only had three of 4-girl set and I wasn't happy with any of them.

Is it possible that bits of glitter can come off? Or are the glitter highlights coated with a seal?
