I know. So everytime I hear these jokes about characters being created specifically to sell toys, I just roll my eyes cause Hasbro is an actual toy company and it’s been their bread and butter for the longest time.

You poor naive soul, the internet has looked down upon the Sonic series since before I was even a fan of it. To say nothing of poor Shadow. :/

@Ilovemyoozik
People have already done that tho, It’s hardly ’bronies’ who were the first male MLP fans, just the first loud ones.

It’s even worse when people blame things on toys, ie, Flash Sentry or Changedlings, when they didn’t even have toys for years or ever (as of now) so they don’t even have an argument. Flash Sentry wasn’t made to sell toys/dolls as he didn’t even have any until a couple years have paassed.

Oh I knew that already that there were male fans of the original G1 show back then. But since the Internet wasn’t commercially available at the time, these fans were mostly ignored. Just like how He-Man also had female fans, which is why the She-Ra spinoff was created.

When in doubt, when there’s a change in the show, blame it on Hasbro for trying to sell toys. Makes sense why Flash wouldn’t get turned to plastic mold until years later because of his ahem "reputation", but that’s a different can of worms.

Not really. Alicorn Twilight toys were seen as early as summer 2012, reputation has nothing to do with it as I doubt most people who make up toy sales care about that stuff. For Flash, it’s probably just cause even these days, Hasbro is terrible at making male characters consistently, and male dolls don’t sell as well as female dolls.

The fact that tons of bronies hate Flash for stealing their waifu has very little to nothing to do with becoming a toy, character as a whole has little to do with it.

Both, so don’t get your panties in a twist sister. Oh who am I kidding? This is LightningBolt I’m speaking with
That’s okay, I’m a music buff more than a cartoon buff, so we’re both on the same page.

I don’t have much of a clue of how to word my question without probably hurting someone’s feelings, or something.

Guess I’ll just forget about it for now.

I was being sarcastic with my comment and mocking the fandom for saying this type of crap.
Huh, I wonder why that’s the case for why male dolls don’t sell well, unless it’s a Ken Doll.

Well of course. But am I going to buy any of those toys? Nope. I’ve only bought EqG minis which aren’t even ponies, and I got a MLP movie Twilight as a present.

The legacy for me will always be the shows, since I’m not a "normal" consumer who buys the toys.

I wonder what the other mods thought about all this chaos that happened in their thread…
