Second Wave 35th Anniversary Ponies Listed on Amazon UK
After a little set back about the release date being pushed to July there seems to be a sparkle of light on the release of the second 35th Anniversary G1 ponies wave: Right now the UK Amazon website lists all single releases, including high quality images, and Moonstone is even available for £25.97 in very limited stock! Meanwhile on the French Amazon the listings are priced at €13.99 and marked as 'coming in 3-5 weeks', which would indicate a release much earlier than July.
One thing that is still missing from the line-up, is the Pretty Parlor Playset that was originally announced. Various sources have already shared with us that this set is probably cancelled and will not be available in the second wave. Yet, the set has been spotted on the 2018 NY Toy Fair, so it could simply have been delayed instead of cancelled.
Below we have all listings from Amazon UK and FR, as well as the amazingly detailed photos.

MLP Merch Poll #165MLP Merch Poll #164 Results
Last week we asked you about the NY Toy Fair this year, and what your favorite part of the My Little Pony wrap-up was. Even though some people think it was a bit small this year, the brushables display was the most popular this year, closely followed by the Equestria Girls Minis. The newcomer Cutie Mark Crew managed to get the 3rd spot, and further down the ranking we see Basic Fun and Equestria Girls at the 4th and 5th place. Other displays scored 6% of the votes or lower, with the Plush section on the bottom.

Second Wave of 35th Anniversary G1 Ponies in April
Since the start of the year it has been one of the hottest topics in collectors land: the re-releases of G1 ponies to celebrate My Little Pony's 35th Anniversary. In our previous poll we had a question about these ponies, and one of the more popular requests was that of more ponies.
Those people will certainly be happy after reading this post, as we've got confirmation that a second wave is coming in April July this year! This time we'll see the year 2 Rainbow Pony set, with Skydancer, Moonstone, Starshine, Windy, Sunlight, Parasol and Peachy as part of the Pretty Parlor Playset. They're not only designed, but also packaged like the original ponies: the retro releases come with a comb, brush and sticker.
As mentioned before, a little patience is required until April July, as listed on Webhallen where the images were found. And it's rumored that at least 3 more releases are planned for this year, and that there is a possible three year plan so fingers crossed!

And for those interested, these ponies are not from Hasbro's own factories, but are manufactured by The Bridge Direct (who also own Basic Fun, formerly Tech 4 Kids). Under license, of course!
Update: The release date has been pushed back to July 2018.

MLP Merch Poll #158MLP Merch Poll #157 Results
Last time we asked you whether you liked to 2017 MLP Merch Battles or not, and we're glad to see that most of the responses are positive! Almost 42% loved the battles, and another 26% likes it too, but with a few proposed changes. 14% likes it a bit and less than 2% didn't like it. That leaves 16% of the people that didn't join the battles, quite a low amount we think!
We hope to be able to share the winners of the battles with you all this week, so keep on the lookout for that!
