1. Gandalf is the most badbutt parentlover in the world, and he likes ponies, so that makes ponies at least 20% cooler.
2. How dare Hasbro cave to the overly-sensitive minority of the population for censoring a character because some people thought she was offensive towards people with mental problems, even after they initally said they weren't going to alter the character. People with actual mental disabilities came out defending her and said they thought the original rendition of the character was adorable, and that the people claiming "offensiveness" were being overly protective of them to the point of being insulting to them. For Hasbro to take the cowards way out and appeal to the helicopter parents is outrageous.
