First My Little Pony G5 Plush Spotted on Taobao

While we were still posting about the latest G4 items hitting stores in the US and Europe, over in China the first G5 plush are already being posted online. The photos from this post originate from Taobao and their IdleFish "second-hand market" app. A user there apparently got hold of four G5 plush by Just Play, who released plenty of G4 plush in the past.

Seen in the pictures are plush of Pipp Petals, Sunny Starscout, Izzy Moonbow and a character we haven't posted about before: Zipp Storm. She is the white pagasus with flashy hair and a cutie mark close to that of Rainbow Dash. All four plush have flat manes and tails, and our guess is that they're about 7" tall.

The attached tags show the My Little Pony logo as we currently know it, but the website name is written in the new font. Seeing as the text is written in English and French, we can easily say that these are destined for the North American market.

Thanks to Samantha & Andrew for the heads-up!

  2. They don't look very tall to me. Kinda cheap looking. I like Zipp's colors, and their sparkly hooves.

  3. Hmmmmm... very peculiar. I agree that they do kinda’ look cheap. Their hair seems to be felt and their bodies just look like cheap polyester, but since I haven’t any way to actually feel them, I’m still keeping hope. Though I’m very excited for this character Zipp Storm! I like her color scheme and eyeliner, and I’m really hoping that they leave her hair long as a toy, as I think that would be genuinely gorgeous lol
    Though, am I the only one who noticed that all of the details seem quite dark, like their hooves and hair?
    They seem to be okay, but I think everyone would benefit if they released some higher quality and detail ones.

  4. Also, I just realized that Izzy’s cutie mark kinda’ resembles some sort of bagpipes lmao

    1. I'm pretty sure it's a pincushion!

  5. I think they look pretty decent for what will likely be a budget-priced little plush. I’m happy for the new redesign and characters, as I’d long since gotten tired of G4. Looking forward to the refresh.

  6. They look pretty stereotypical for the MLP plush we've seen so far, the exceptions of course being TY, Build a Bear or Fanmade Plush. I'm not really looking foreward to these, but I hope we get the actual toys before the plush or at least at the same time.

  7. Reminds me of how the earliest G4 merch still had the G3 logo.
