My four year old son really enjoys My Little Ponies. However, they weren't exactly tailored for boys. In fact most are nauseatingly girly, and well despite the love of ponies my son is definitely all boy.

My solution was to purchase blank toy ponies and customize them according to his specifications. This isn't the first custom pony I have made, I just always forget to get pictures before they are lost in the abyss.

My son was very specific about the gun on the butt of the pony. I tried to steer him in another direction, but was unsuccessful. He picked the colors of the body and the hair. The stitches were my touch  Wink.

I primed the pony with plastic primer and sprayed the entire pony flat black. After a black base I taped off the hooves and created a tiny sticker out of painters tape to create the stitches and the gun and sprayed the entire pony purple. I colored the hair with a fabric marker. Not the best way but he wanted so many colors of hair I did not want to do a re root.

I would love to get to some feedback and opinions.

Will do personal swap for pogs, Polly Pockets (the little ones) and Gameboy Advance Games. PM me if interested!

GLOCKSHINE PONY! I love it so much!!! What did you use for sealant, and how well does it hold up?

I'm going to modify some of my duplicate My Little Pony's (I have over 100, I collect them) and I'll post results!

Twice the mayham, triple the force, ten times the action: total hardcore.

whoa, I would've loved to have a pony like that when I was a kid. lucky boy!!
the pistol looks really nice too, especially for a 'sticker' cut-out! I'm digging the creepy black & silver eyes  Cheesy

LOL!  That's hilarious.  But you're right, they do tend to be somewhat girly.
