    My Little Pony - Friendship is magic

    created by Addam on 2012.02.29

    Main Section
    Update: I have added the first 3 of the mane six miniature sets. Buildings in scale with the ponies would be enormous and expensive to produce and purchase, hence the difference in size.

    The main idea, is to create pony shaped minifigures (or in this case miniponies), which could be used to populate other lego built buildings from Lauren Faust's brilliant TV Show: My little pony - Friendship is magic.

    The buildings are microscale, and currently include: Twilight's Treehouse, The Apple Family Barn, and Rainbow Dash's Cloud Chateau.

    The ponies would be cusomizable with wings or different hairpieces. The unicorn horn would be part of the hairpiece.

    For the headpiece, hair and tail of the 3d model, I used Karol Pawlinski 's downloadable 3D pony library.

    Thank you for watching this, Support if you like it :)

    IMPORTANT: We are aware of the licensing issues, that might come, if this project is approved by Lego. This is something, that the concerned parties have to work out between themselvses. I personally hope and believe, that a mutually benefical agreement can be reached, when the time comes. Thank you for understanding this, and I wish you a great time browsing Cuusoo.

    Another set idea, involving regular bricks: DJ Pon-3, at the Canterlot Wedding.

    The minifig uses the same hair mould as Rainbow dash, with the horn added.

    The discs, are round tiles, and are planted on rotateable plates, aka turntables, so you can actually spin them.

    Big Macintosh, ad an example for a colt minifigure. This one still uses the old design, I'll update that sometime later, possibly with his neck thingy added on the back stud.

    Decision on the IP's fit with the LEGO Brand

    2012.06.04

    First and foremost, congratulations to Addam for gaining so many supporters for this very well done concept on LEGO CUUSOO. The work you have put into the concepts for potential LEGO renditions of My Little Pony figures and playsets is outstanding.

    We know My Little Pony is very popular, and these concepts would make great products. Our team has done our due diligence. Since the property is owned by Hasbro we've decided it’s neither a brand fit nor a strategic fit for the LEGO Group to pursue a My Little Pony license, and so we will not consider My Little Pony projects on LEGO CUUSOO further. We see how enthusiastic and hopeful MLP fans are at the possibility of a LEGO line and are sorry to be the bearers of this disappointing news.

    Since LEGO CUUSOO opens us to new product suggestions, naturally people will suggest concepts that aren’t a strategic fit. We are grateful for the spirit behind projects like the My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic project. It keeps us sharp and looking toward the future of the LEGO brick.

    The LEGO CUUSOO Team


    Congratulatory message from LEGO for +500 votes

    2012.03.15

    Congratulations on all of the supporters! Great job on the concept pony figurines, it's clear you've captured the look and feel of My Little Pony as a potential LEGO model.

    With the popularity of the new show, it's clear people would want a LEGO tribute. Of course if this reaches 10,000, we'd have to secure a license. Until then, best of luck on your journey to 10,000 supporters!

    Please understand that this initial green light does not have an effect on the LEGO Review that will take place if the project reaches 10,000 supporters. Until then, we wish you the best of luck on your journey to 10,000 supporters!

    The LEGO CUUSOO Team
