Celestia's Chinese Twin by Digoraccoon Celestia's Chinese Twin by Digoraccoon
My daughter has several of the latest My Little Pony toys and I'm curious to know why they always make Princess Celestia pink. In the cartoon she has a white coat like Rarity, but while Rarity's toys generally are white, Celestia seems to come out pink every time.

Since my daughter is getting to the age where she asks too may questions, but not old enough to understand toy economics, I decided to just come up with this comic idea instead. Much easier explination. :D

Princess Celestia belongs to Hasbro.

Hasbro needs to make things in America, in fact Corporations of America should stop buying things from China and make their own for a change. It's no wonder why the economy is in the dumps.

And also the remake of 'Red Dawn' and the videogame 'Homefront' was planned to make China as the invaders rather than North Korea but they changed it because Corporates are afraid China will find it offensive and cut off trade with the US. Mega-Corporates like Hasbro live off of Chinese products, if the trade is cut off they'll shrivel up and die. Right?

Well, doubt they'd shrivel. That'd just have to make do with slightly more expensive alternatives. :)

Maybe, unless they're hopelessly dependent on China for products. This goes the same thing with Iran. Iran are making nukes and the Government aren't doing anything to stop them. Why, because the oil trade between America and Iran will be severed if they attack them.

I heard the reason why they made Celestia pink was because pink ponies sell better. :/ Huh, I never quite understood why they never remained true to Celestia's colors on the show but I agree with you. Nice comic. :)

I read something to that effect as well. Pink sells better. But recently they did release a correct color of Celestia so apparently progress is made. :D

wait, wouldn't an awesome sun princess with a white coat sell better than ones with pink? Because then it would stand out? How in the world does pink sell better when everything is pink???

actually Celestias coat is a very very soft pink and it's cheaper and easier to make the plastic toy pink rather then the pale pink

Atcually it's funny if you look really closely you'll see that celestia's coat is a very pale pink you can tell because they outline her in a darker but still pale pink while rarity who is white has a gray outline. i figured this out becuse i too wondered why the toy was PINK.
