|I love this set.|
I've finished all the photos for the G4 collection now (ignores giant pile of unopened G4 ponies for the moment). Having done this, I'm going to start reorganizing the accessories by type. For the other generations, I've always stored my accessories by set. In the case of the G4s, however, the ponies are displayed completely within their playsets, rather than in rows on shelves. This being the case, I prefer to use several accessories to enhance the "scenes" displayed, and not always within the sets they came with.
|Shouldn't Rarity's Boutique have more clothing?|
Those accessories that aren't used on the shelves will be stored by type (food, clothing, combs, etc.) Without ten+ years of familiarity with the sets, I find it easier to locate the various bits and pieces that I'm looking for this way, and easier to put them away again later. After all, if I ever need to put the sets back together, I have my photo catalogue to refer to.
|I couldn't wait to open all the new sets!|
I've mentioned the giant pile of unopened G4s a few times in the last months. Of course, I've still been buying ponies as new ones come out (and as stores have sales!), but I've been leaving them in their packages until I have all the existing accessories and ponies sorted. Roomy is looking forward to the great G4 opening party that will happen shortly, maybe more than I have been!
|These don't seem to match any of my sets. Could they be extra bits left over from ponies bought for custom projects? I don't remember!|
The G4s have been the most frustrating to catalogue. They should have been the easiest, since they were all bought new in package. And yet, as I reviewed the photos I did have and the accessories that were piling up, I found that I was missing photos of several sets. I'm glad the project is nearing completion, and I can just go back to enjoying the ponies again.
