Yeah this Mana Tree Castle looks straight from some 80s stuff, I thought the same about the Breezies’ homeland!

Honestly, that looks almost like a G4 Dream Valley, or even Last Unicorn stuff, visually…

Thanks, I’m glad I’m not the only one. I got all kinds of good G1 vibes from the S4 finale, and needless to say I got flashbacks of the Smooze destroying Dream Valley’s old castle home…

and then Mr. Moochick & Habbit..

had to manifest the Paradise Estate for them.. so its is like the opposite this time in G4: from ‘homey’ to ‘fantasy castle’!
 
@PonyPon
 
Well, from what little we’ve seen of it already, the tree-castle has lots of crazy potential: implications galore!

Well we’ve had episodes in Canterlot, The Crystal Empire and the Castle of the Two Sisters, so who knows, we haven’t seen much of the interior yet remember.

I don’t have any issues with it at all, and as you and someone else here have pointed out, it’s visual design is fitting when you consider where it came from.
 
I guess I’m one of those people that finds both the idea of a cosy library tree house and a badass crystal tree castle appealing.
 
But whatever, opinions and all that, I’m looking forward to seeing more of the interior as well, badass hall and throne room is a fantastic first impression.

I dunno about you guys but I grew up with all kinds of fantasy fiction having all kinds of exotic crazy looking places, sometimes with explanations of their appearance and sometimes because that’s just what the writer or artist wanted.
 
A magical mana tree manifesting a sapling castle which exists soley to help the Mane Six evolve and grow as characters isn’t all that bad.
 
I for one welcome our new crazy magical adventure possibilities.

used to be a bunch of houses there, but property values hit the roof and they had to demolish them all and go live in las pegasus.

It’s not even just that it sticks out horribly. “Crystal treehouse” could have worked just fine, as long as it looked organic and natural in the same way that Twilight’s hold house does.
 
This thing doesn’t look organic. It doesn’t even look aesthetically pleasing. It’s horribly balanced, horribly proportioned, and just looking at it makes me want to knock it the fuck over.
 
This is an object designed by the marketing department. As opposed to anyone with anyone understanding of visuals.

Selling your house is not an everyday occurrence for us and so probably not for them either. In fact, since, as you say, Ponyville is a quiet little place, they get some people moving to the Ponyville area, but probably not many, and so ownership of homes might be transferred more by inheritance than buying (which is probably how it was for most people in real life in the past). So a decrease in house prices would probably not effect them that much, whilst an increase in tourist trade could bring a significant increase to their well being.

not ripping the artist, but thats an ugly castle. what a monster it is. how to fit this behemoth into ponyville?
Background Pony #E417
This artist once again created a beautiful piece of art. But even him couldn’t hide the fact that the castle looks extremely out of place. Oh well…still looking forward to S5! :)

Look to the right behind the castle on the DVD vector. That spiraling rainbow? Kind of looks like a slide.
 
And why does the toy not look like a tree? Hasbro. Why does the wedding castle look nothing like something either in Canterlot or the Crystal Empire? Hasbro. Why does applejack own a truck in the toy canon? Hasbro.  
Since when have the toys ever been super show accurate? Never.
