MLP Classic Unicorn & Pegasus Collection by Basic Fun
An Australian Toy Store in Sydney called "Alfy's New and Vintage Toy Shop" is now selling the brand new Classic Unicorn & Pegasus set by Basic Fun. The reason we decided to post this new is because they haven't been spotted in other stores yet but perhaps these sightings indicate that they will be available in other places soon as well such as Target.

Images of Mash'ems Series 12 Now On Walmart Site
After a long silence since the initial find in February, we're now finally seeing the stock images of the Basic Fun Series 12 Mash'ems (previously known as Fash'ems) on the Walmart website.
As we already knew from the in-store release, this set will focus on the student 6. And the 'mystery' chase figure is now confirmed to be Cozy Glow and that leaves Sandbar out of this set. Though, this set does feature Ocellus, who was left out in the Stack'ems set.
The new ball-shaped mystery containers are sold at $2.88 each, but are only available in-store.

And if you want to keep track of your My Little Pony Mash'ems collection, why not take a look at our Basic Fun figures database?

New York Toy Fair 2020 Wrap-Up
The 2020 New York Toy Fair is behind us so it's time for our yearly wrap-up. And this year has been quite disappointing for those who were expecting to see tons of new merchandise. Granted we'll probably see a lot more merchandise during the next Toy Fair in 2021 since the G5 Movie will be released the same year. For this year the focus lays on the new Pony Life Series which will debut this spring/summer.

Hasbro

Hasbro My Little Pony at New York Toy Fair 2020Hasbro My Little Pony at New York Toy Fair 2020
Hasbro didn't reveal many new items this year. Most of the items shown were Reveal the Magic Toys that are actually already available. Several new items have been spotted though, including the officially announced "Kiss my Unicorn" Princess Celestia and the Unicorn Sparkle Collection which comes with DJ Pon-3, Rarity, Starlight Glimmer, Trixie and Twilight Sparkle. Alongside those two we also got a glimpse at the Potion Princess Cadance, the Potion Dress-up Rarity and new Fashion Squad singles of Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle.
There was also an absence of Cutie Mark Crew, which leaves the question what future this line will see in 2020.
And lastly we can't ignore the absolutely adorable Fluttershy juice box cushion that was on display next to the Kiss my Unicorn figure. No idea what their plans are with this, but I sure hope this will be taken in production!

Mega Mashems
Brand new are these Mega Mash'ems, which are larger versions of the well known Mash'ems/Fash'ems that we've known My Little Pony versions of since 2013. This new line will start with 4 figures: Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle and Fluttershy in blind capsules.
Meijer has listed the Mega Mash'ems last week, including a high quality render of the packaging, but it seems to be down again.

YuMe

YuMe My Little Pony at New York Toy Fair 2020YuMe My Little Pony at New York Toy Fair 2020
A new name here is YuMe, who showed their first line of My Little Pony licensed products. And they start off with a pretty large line-up, including plush in various sizes, a "Magic Advent Calendar" and most excitingly: a line of collectible stampers called Pony Pals. These small stampers with pony-figures come in their own dome, with their matching pet and interchangeable flooring to customize the domes. On the display we learn that the first series will include the mane 6 and 2 others who were (purposely) left out of frame. Perhaps Trixie and Potion Nova?
While the name YuMe probably sounds unfamiliar for you, people within the EMEA (Europe, Middle-Eastern, Africa) region will get to know them very well over the next year, as they become the primary partner for plush for these markets. This is especially welcome, as the amount of plush licenses dropped significantly in the past few years.

Kotobukiya

The bishoujo statues by Kotobukiya were also on display, but the most recent reveal of the colored Applejack statue was absent. However, the teaser poster for Sunset Shimmer was there and we get the confirmation that the Rainbow Dash statue will have a slightly increased MSRP compared to the other girls, which is also reflected on their US website now.

MLP Mash'ems Series 12 Featuring Student 6 Now At Walmart
A brand new series of Mash'ems (formerly Fash'ems) has popped-up at Walmart this week, featuring the Student 6. The retail box features a Smolder Mash'em in the display window and contains 12 capsules, which should be enough to get a full set of 6 figures.
Included are at least Gallus, Ocellus, Smolder, Yona and Silverstream, together with a mystery figure. By the outline it looks to be Cozy Glow instead of Sandbar. He seems to have been traded with Ocellus compared with the latest Stack'ems set.
Whether this is an early release at Walmart or not is unknown, so far we only heard of this particular find and Walmart as not yet listed them on their website. If anyone else has found these at their local Walmart, please let us know.

Thanks to SLPhotos for the photos!

Basic Fun Shows New G1 Retro Ponies at London Toy Fair
What started in 2018 as the 35th Anniversary series of retro G1 ponies continues for a 3rd year here in 2020! Over in London at the annual Toy Fair, Basic Fun has shown what new ponies we can expect soon. Shown are Cherries Jubilee, Gusty, Heart Throb, Lickety-Split, Posey, Sparkle and Tootsie.
All originate from the year 3 Earth, Pegasus and Unicorn sets, and features almost the complete line. When comparing those sets and what has been on display the Toy Fair, we're only missing Surprise, Powder and Skyflier. Whether any of these will be included in the wave is yet to be confirmed.
All earth ponies come with a brush, ribbon and mini-post and the ponies in the unicorn & pegasus set receive a comb, ribbon and puffy sticker.
A release date is not yet given, but we expect these to pop up at Target around the end of Q1.
Thanks to Wigwam Toys for the photos!
