I have never seen anything like this and I think it's quite a rare item of pony history.

I won't spoil the fun, what do you think this is? After the photos I will give some more info.

OMG ! I never seen a pony's body mold before !
I already saw a head mold, not for a piggy, but it was already impressive...
What a luck ! On Fire

That is so exciting - it's a piggie museum piece! If anyone knows how to make up the liquid plastic for the moulds we could be in business with a whole new line of piggies!!

Wow, that is an amazing find dribble I wonder how they got the finished pony bodies out of the mould? Do they open?

One of the ORIGINAL molds?! faint I've seen hardly any of the U.S release even!

When I first saw the pictures I thought it could've been a customised Piggy, (EEK! The horror!) a fakie or prototype. It's amazing to know the molds are still preserved so well.

its very awsome whatever it is..... but it doesnt look really like a mold... more like an original like trial casting of the molds or something.... (hubby says its a transformer pony since its made of metal)

its awsome either way... great find! (how much did they cost?)
