Target Lists Four G3 Retro Classic Ponies
The 3rd generation of My Little Pony started back in 2003, and when you think about it, that's already 16 years ago! Whether this falls in the 'retro' category is up to personal preference, but what is sure is that four G3 re-releases are planned for this fall! Under the 'Retro Classic' line Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash will be released in their original G3 form according to listings that popped up on the Target website.
All ponies each come with a comb are listed for $8.49 with an MSRP of $9.99. And while they are marked as 'sold out', we didn't get any confirmations that they were available just yet. That's why we expect them to be available somewhere in the coming weeks.

Below we have more photos of all the ponies, as well as the listings and some more background information on these figures.

Finally Official: Stranger Things x My Little Pony Applejack
Today is the start of the new Stranger Things season, and for this season Netflix has partnered up with Hasbro and Basic Fun to release this very special Stranger Things-themed Applejack. She is not looking like her regular self and comes with a white and blue color scheme, which includes her mane, tail and symbol/cutie mark. The latter of which is intentionally printed upside-down.
She comes in a monochrome box and is always packed wrong side up. On the back we see the usual style of the 35th Anniversary ponies, though it only showing Applejack. Within the box you not only get the pony, but a bow and hairbrush are included too. Everything in matching blue.
This special Applejack is currently only available in-store at Target, where you can pick her up for $9.99. Note that a handful of ponies are also available from 3rd part sellers on Amazon, though with a higher price tag.

My Little Pony Majesty Basic Fun SDCC 2019 Exclusive
San Diego Comic Con is less than two weeks away and a lot of companies keep revealing their exclusives. Hasbro already revealed their exclusive about two weeks ago, and now, Basic Fun will also release their own exclusive: Majesty. Majesty was released in the second year of the first generation of My Little Pony and came with the Dream Castle Playset.
However as you might have noticed this version looks a whole lot different as both the pony itself and the box are completely covered with her symbol.

Store Finds: G1 Rainbow Ponies, Lots at Ross, Easter Basket & Much More
As you might have noticed we're not posting a weekly store finds report anymore. While this is partly due to our busy lives at the moment, but also the reduced amount of My Little Pony stuff that is currently being released. The announced end of the G4 series is definitely not helping, but we're hoping to report on new stuff soon.
For now most of the items found in stores are discounted old stock and a handful of new items. Nevertheless interesting news if you're looking to complete your collection!
If you happen to find brand new stuff in your local store, then feel free to write us a small message with photos.

My Little Pony Series 3 Stackems by Basic Fun

For the past few days our inbox has been flooded with this news: Basic Fun has listed the third series of Stack'ems on their website!
This set contains all new characters with some of them making their first merch appearance. Almost the whole "Young Six" is included: Sandbar, Silverstream, Yona, Gallus and Smolder and at last Cozy Glow. So no Ocellus sadly. (or perhaps she's in disguise... *looks at Cozy Glow*) By looking at the image it's very likely that Silverstream is gonna be the chase figure as she's filled with glitter.

Store Finds: On the Go Purses, 2019 Retro Ponies, Little Twin Stars and More
Now that all the New York Toy Fair news is out, we're back to the regular articles, including the store finds. This time we're writing about releases from the past 4 weeks, so it's possible that some of the items found aren't that new, but we'd like to share them any way!

My Little Pony NY Toy Fair 2019 Wrap-Up
It's February, and that means New York Toy Fair time! Although, this year is quite different from earlier installments (2018, 2017, 2016, 2015 & 2014) as it's accompanied by the official statement from Hasbro that the upcoming 9th season of Friendship is Magic will be the final one for the generation. Everything points towards an upcoming 5th generation afterwards, but you'll find no hint of that on the fair this year. Instead it's a line-up that pretty much covers everything that has been announced in the past few weeks, including the recent waves of Cutie Mark Crew and brushables that were released in late 2018.
Though, we do see some new sets on display at the fair this year, with the 2019 series called "Rainbow Road Trip" which ties in with an upcoming special. And there's some amazing news from other companies too, including Kidrobot, who are releasing their first My Little Pony figures this year!

My Little Pony Classic Series Retro Bubbles Year 2 Earth Pony
Some very big news for the fans of the 35th Anniversary Collector Ponies: Target has listed the Year 2 Earth Ponies and the Year 3 Rainbow Ponies! Although being not available yet it's great to still them still being made after the 35th Anniversary last year. They did change the packaging though as the 35th Anniversary emblem is now gone and replaced with the word "Classic" on the front of the box.

Series 2 Stack'ems Spotted at Walmart
Remember the Stack'ems? These were Tech4Kids' (now Basic Fun) take to rival Disney's Tsum Tsum stackable figures. Back in 2016 they were announced at the Toy Fair, only to be released a whole year later. This year they announced their second series of Stack'em figures, but got overshadowed by Hasbro's own stackable figures: the Cutie Mark Crew blind packs.
Despite that, Basic Fun has continued their promised line-up of Series 2 Stack'em figures, which can now be found at Walmart. There's a total of 12 figures to collect: Cheerilee, DJ Pon-3, Muffins/Derpy, Octavia, Princess Luna and Spike. All in both regular and clear versions.
Thanks to @mlp.collection for the photo!
