Big Surprise: Hasbro Releases New Wave of Blind Bags
A big surprise this week from Hasbro with the release of a new wave of blind bags! Last year we thought it was game over for the classic blind bag waves with the continuous release of Cutie Mark Crew figures, but this turns out the be just a pause.
This week an images was shared on Instagram showing two well-known blind bag ponies with new cards attached. As far as we can tell the ponies in this wave are all re-releases from earlier transparent lines, like Wave 14, 16 and 17, with one exception: Rainbow Smile. A trademarked name we couldn't find a reference to anywhere else, and judging by the name, color and pose it could be a new name for Rainbowshine.
All figures come with a fully transparent body, no painted mane/tail and no added glitter. Though, there seems to be some color variations from the earlier releases, and we spot usage of the new eye designs from later waves.
The figures were found in Mexico, and we didn't see them at the NY Toy Fair this year or last year. This raises the question whether the new wave (technically #25 if we exclude Best Gift Ever) is a worldwide release, or of this wave will only see specific countries. Still, if that latter is the case, they could still end up in discount stores like the budget EqG dolls.

List of Ponies

The full wave of ponies includes: Royal Riff, Mosley Orange, Chance-a-Lot, Twilight Sky, Berry Green, Applejack, Shoeshine, Lily Valley, Pinkie Pie, Berry Dreams, Lilac Links, Peachy Sweet, Sassaflash, Rainbow Smile, Banana Bliss, Merry May, Berry Shine, Trixie Lulamoon, Amethyst Star, Lemon Hearts, Minuette, Twilight Velvet, Electric Sky and Beach Berry.

At the moment we don't have any blind bag codes of this wave yet, but if you happen to find these in stores we're all ears to hear what code your ponies had. Additional photos are welcome too!

    1. How can they be worse when it's basicly a re-release?

    1. I'd like them and Thorax and his brother (and maybe even a Discord mini (they gave us Chrysalis, so why not?) and one or two changelings. If they can add Breezies to the line then they can do that. C'mon, Hasbro, give us something good before the show ends.

  5. Was hoping for new names, but there are some here that I missed picking up the first time around so if I see them in stores I'll be sure to grab them.
