Newest member in my collection: Flatfoot Minty from 1982, she came today. I have already given a presentation of Collector Minty, you can read about her here. What is the difference between Minty year 1 and Minty year 2?

Flatfoot ponies were the first My Little Ponies, printed in Year 1 (1982): Minty, Cotton Candy, Snuzzle, Blossom, Butterscotch and Blue Belle. They are called flatfoot ponies because the underside of their hooves are flat, while any other pony printed later than 1982 have concave hooves. The Flatfoot Pose was never used again in its original form.

All six ponies in the Flatfoot set were reprinted the following year in the Collector pose. These ponies are called Collector ponies, and are very similar to the Flatfoot ponies. They have the same names, symbols, colors and accessories, but they are slightly bigger, have longer front legs and concave hooves, and their head is held a little higher.

Flatfoot Minty (year 1) vs. Collector Minty (year 2). You can see Collector Minty has longer front legs and that Flatfoot Minty’s feet are closer together. Also you can see Collector Minty has her head held a little higher.

Flatfoot ponies were the very first My Little Ponies (printed in Year 1, in 1982), six of them all together. They were all printed in the Flatfoot Pose (which was never used again in its original form), but were reprinted the following year in the Collector Pose, which is very similar to the Flatfoot Pose, but has concave feet and longer front legs, and stands with the head held a little higher. The Collector Ponies were otherwise identical to the Year 1 Flatfoot Ponies.

I havent’t had the chance to present each and one of the six very first My Little Ponies yet, but I’m getting to it. I took a picture of them all together, so cute! These are in the Collector Pose.
