You Like it its cool, you like making stuff and art work from it its cool.

But what gives me the creep its when you're like 20-30 year old and your life seems to only gravitate about that show.

May i remember you that its a kid show ?
Well anyways its still a bit okay, who i am to judge what people should like and shouldn't but really ?
I love pokemons myself, but i'm not going to make a Bulbazaur craft clay sculpture and TRY to sell it 300$ Really? You're making a doll out of clay, a plushie or a drawing even if you're Uber talented doesn't mean that you will sell that stuff for around 200 to 500$ Wait? only kids with no job will think its a fair price. even if it took you 200 hours its still fucking craft clay and cloth. There some shit-ass good sculptor here that sell theirs stuff for around 300$ and and well worth it, Grow up damn.

I'm not going to feed those pussies harassing me that it worth 200$, or bitch me on my profile . You like them fine.

on it's own adults liking kids shows isn't too bad since ADULTS created and animated them to appeal to both children and their parents

as for your stuff, all I can say is that in the end it's up to you how much it's sold for. The people getting on your case are pointing out that since you don't work for the companies that made any of these series you have no way to mass produce anything so they assume that making individual 1-of-a-kind products warrants a higher price in general

$300 however is stretching it unless you hand make crafts out of carbide steel and latex paint

People are paying $200+ because it's kinda hand-made. Plus the bidding. It's not some factory child in India's mass-produced work, it's the work of someone who probably has an actual paying job.

Anyways.

There's a new episode tomorrow, and it stars Pinkie Pie. :iconpinkiepielaplz:

Uh, people can sell stuff for however much they want to. Who are you to tell people otherwise? If people want to pay that, then let them.

It's not even usually the maker of those plushies who PUTS the price at $200+, they might start it at 100-150$(I'm talking about the extremely accurate and well made pony pulshies) because of labor, material, profit, and popularity of the character the plushie is, but it's the fans who bid it up to $500+. It's really not that hard to figure out. Let people with an extra 500-800$ lying around buy a pony plushie for 500-800$. :shrug:

What kind of reply is that. It would be ridiculous to even think that they would sell for 200$ . I didn't even tried to sell them online yet. for your info i plan about 3-15$ depending on complexity.

Are you that retarded ? I'm not even talking about the same thing.

Didj Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012
Well, forgive me if I am misinterpreting you. But your complaint is both because Bronies exist, and that people will pay upwards of 200$ for hand-made clay figures or plushie dolls of the ponies. You make little charms of pokemon characters (arguably just as childish as My Little Pony) and are looking to sell them online. To which I assume that if the customer demand for said charms were upwards in a couple hundred dollars, you would not be complaining in the least. Now, I don't know if you possess the cognitive functions to comprehend our brief and simple little back and forth conversation. But I would be so bold as to assert that I am indeed remaining on topic with my little comparison there. Your discriminatory slander towards the mentally handicapped not withstanding.

See, there's this thing in capitalistic economies called 'supply and demand'.

Things aren't just worth the amount of the materials that went into making them, plus the labor (although apparently to you, labor is worthless, it's generally recognized as being worth something by most people.) They're also worth something just because people want them really badly. High demand and low supply easily make cheap pieces of plastic worth a lot of money. You can quibble that you don't think people OUGHT to be demanding this sort of thing, but my house, and I would bet money yours, are filled with equally useless trinkets, and ones that we paid more for than just the price of their materials.

I'm personally staring at my Godzilla figurine(toy) collection right now.

Obviously you don't get how the market works at all. People are selling things for $200-$500 because people ARE buying them. So it's safe to assume that they think the price is fair. You seem to have it totally backwards. Why would people with no jobs think that the high prices were fair? The people with no money are always the ones whining that they can't buy well-made art for $10 or points.

And if you meant the opposite of what I just mentioned above, then I just suggest you word your complaint better.

Does anyone else remember when My Little Ponies was a TV show that was only watched by little girls, and when only little girls used to play with My Little Ponies dolls?

Can we go back to that time?

Because seeing grown men play with My Little Ponies dolls is really fucked up.

I don't think there's anything inherently wrong in playing with MLPs, so long as you're a little girl. Which is who they were designed for.

Still, just not right. :no:

Also, your comment gave me a flashback to troll dolls (Dam dolls - wiki: [link] ). They were so creepily cute in the 80's.

That is, until some of the horror films came out. Then they were just downright scary. :paranoid:

As well, it was rather disturbing to have one as a pencil topper - since the pencil's eraser would be jammed up its ass and all the while, the damn thing is smiling at you like it wanted more.
