The International MLP pages now contain only personal photos and first-hand and/or confirmed descriptions.
For further information on ponies featured in this section or any other non-U.S. ponies or variations, please see this page.
Outside the U.S., there were several variations of ponies sold a number of different countries. These are a few of the more well-known and recognizable versions, varying slightly in pose and color.
Instead of green, this version of
Tootsie (Earth Pony) is white, but her hair and eyes are still blue and her symbol is still pink lollipops. Like the U.S. version, she is marked Hong Kong with Hasbro copyrights.
This version of Bow Tie (Earth Pony) was made in the traditional standing pose with her head straight. She was still the same colors (blue body w/ pink hair and purple eyes) - this one is slightly lighter than the U.S. version. Her bows symbol is white (not pink; at least mine is white). She has white freckles on her cheeks. Like the U.S. version, she is marked Hong Kong with Hasbro copyrights.
This version of Applejack was also made in this pose with the same colors: orange body with yellow hair, red-orange w/green apples symbol, green eyes (eyes slightly lighter than U.S. version), and white freckles on her cheeks. Like the U.S. version, she is marked Hong Kong with Hasbro copyrights.
Instead of white, this version of Moondancer (unicorn) has a yellow body (as opposed to white). Her hair was the same (dark red w/ purple streak) and her eyes are purple. She also has the same glittery symbol (maroon crescent moon w/silver stars). Like the U.S. version, she is marked Hong Kong with Hasbro copyrights.
The country Macau has been known to produce some of the most unusual alternate versions of some of the earliest, well-known ponies. Colors are symbols are sometimes mismatched, making a pony looks like she has someone else's symbol while some color and symbol creations have led to entirely unique ponies. These ponies (so far confirmed by ponies below) have a clear hoof making of ©82 HASBRO PAT PEND on their right front hooves. The left front hoof is covered by a blotch of body-colored vinyl to cover the traditional "HONG KONG" marking (still slightly readable). The left back hoof is indented with a scratchy "MACAU" as the country of origin. Macau ponies were not sold in the United States. I own two of these ponies, photographed below.
These ponies were packaged on a card showing the six Collector Ponies, despite the obvious color and symbol variations. Each pony is shown to have a different name from those they have in the U.S. Presumably, the closest match to the Collector Pony would be the name of the variant; those shown are noted below.
Because of her purple raindrop symbol, this pony is often referred to an alternate version of Lemon Drop. However, her gray body, pink hair, and blue eyes make a closer alternate to Snuzzle. On the package, Snuzzle is named Rosy. Other notable differences are that this pony has no forelock in her thick mane; her hair (mane and tail) is also slightly longer than the average early pony. The purple symbol on this particular pony (shown) has a hue of pink surrounding each drop; the colors seems to be running. Some drops have been scraped, revealing pink underneath.
This most unusually-colored brown and white pony has created a mystery for MLP collectors since she was first discovered. Her heart symbol, blue eyes, and earthy body color suggest she is an alternate to Peachy (as opposed to Snuzzle who has the same heart symbol). Notable characteristics of the pony shown are a think mane which is short in the front (may or not be cut), but is not styled like a forelock. However, her brown body, off-white hair, and white symbol more accurately represent Megan's (non-MLP) pony, TJ. The actually character, TJ (shown), who appeared only in the first MLP television special, was more of a gold color with beige hair, dark eyes, and round white markings on her hips and lower back. Other versions that could be considered a 'TJ' pony may also be out there. According to her package (brown pony with hearts), she is the alternate to Butterscotch, and her name is Jenny.
The four other ponies (I am not sure what the Macau alternates look like) are named Minky (Minty), Bonny (Blossom), Candy (Cotton Candy), and Belly (Blue Belle).
Italy is another country that produced alternate versions of early ponies. Confirmed on the ponies shown, the hoof makings on an Italy pony include a scratchy "ITALY" etched into one hoof (front or back; no evidence of another country of origin covered), with her pose's year of origins (noted below). The most notable characteristic is that all Italy ponies (at least all the I have ever seen through photos sent to me by other collectors) have blue eyes. Italy ponies were not sold in the United States. I own two of these ponies, photographed below.
This version of Applejack, with her curly hair resembles the Year 3 version. She has the same orange body yellow hair, white freckles (smaller than usual). Her apple symbol shown lighter orange apple with darker green stems and her blue eyes (instead of green) were carelessly painted. Her right front hoof is marked ©'83 HASBRO PAT PEND with the ITALY marking on her left front hoof.
Heart Throb is a lovely variation, notably because of her hair coloring. her lavender body is the same, but her hair is much more red than pink; more comparable, to Moondancer (lighter) and Baby Sugarberry (darker). Like other Italy ponies, she does not have a defined forelock and her two rows of hair in her mane both start at her forehead. Heart Throb's winged heart symbol is more of a purply-pink and the wings are a darker metallic silver (shiny, not glittery). Her eyes are that typical medium blue with off-center painting, darker than her regular shade of blue. Her right back hoof is marked ©'84 HASBRO, but the "PAT PEND" marking has been covered; the ITALY marking on her left back hoof.
Confetti was made outside of the United States in a different style. This version stands in the "shy pose" (head turned to right). She is white with coral/pink/blue (as opposed to aqua in the U.S.)/chartreuse hair. She has a lighter shade of purple eyes (than U.S. version) and glittery pieces of red & green confetti as her symbol. She's wearing a bridal outfit called Wedding Bells, that is the same as "Something Old, Something New."; outfit/accessories include a white gown, lace veil, four white shoes and ring. .
Birthflower Ponies (Australian)
Birthflower Ponies were also sold in Australia, in shops, and were almost entirely different ponies from those available through the US mail offer. Unlike the U.S. Birthflower Ponies, the Australian versions had their own unique body, hair, and eye colors. Their symbols were also more detailed in color, varying from the main U.S. monochromatic colors as well and have straight hair, rather than curly. Thanks to whirly for the beautiful pics of the Birthflower Ponies (info on all Birthflower Ponies except Lily of the Valley are derived from these photos)!
