I like this, and I agree. Just because Lauren Faust's design for Firefly was recoloured to become Rainbow Dash when copyright reared its head doesn't mean that we should stick with that as Firefly's G4 design. Also, her mane here looks delightfully retro!
I Agree fully. The recolor-Dash version just doesn't do justice enough. I like G1 Firefly's hairstyle, and the fact the her design was more horse-like and realistic while still being cartoon. As for the G1 series that came after - fat tubby ponies just don't cut it for me.
I know how you feel, I'm the same with suprise, I really wish people used her real g1 mane and colour, look in the cartoon and toyline, suprise is not blond, there are some major diffrence between the two, for one suprise is a mother, in baby its cold outside she not having fun when she freezing her wings off or being chased by a yeti. another thing is that she is great friends with megans younger brother danny also her cutie mark is 4 or 5 balloons
Firefly was supposed to be rainbow dash, but hasbro didn't own most of the original cast's rights exept for apple jack. So technically speaking, Firefly is rainbow dash but with the color shceme of her g3 counterpart.
