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.

Welcome back to our yearly megapost on everything My Little Pony at the New York Toy Fair, which started last weekend. This year the My Little Pony stand differed quite a lot from the previous year, as there's almost no mention of MLP The Movie anymore, while it's only a few months after the release in theaters. Instead the focus for this year is cute & chibi: Cutie Mark Crew figures, cute plush and Equestria Girls Minis vinyls will see their debut this year, as well as the continuation of the Equestria Girls reboot. In the brushables department we see the first merch for the new season pop-up, plenty of fashion style ponies and the release of new molded mane figures.
As mentioned in previous editions, we were not able to attend the toy fair ourselves, and are using photos of people that shared them online. All photo credits can be found at the bottom of the post.

Note: Some announcements contain spoilers for season 8 characters and themes. If you do not wish to read any spoilers for the upcoming season, please skip the brushables section.
Previous editions: 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017

It's been a while since our last store finds post, so this one is longer than ever! Because of that we didn't write too many words for each find, but we made sure to put as much images in as possible!
This time we have a lot of long awaited items, including wave 22 blind bags and lots of brand new finds too, like a new FiM Collection wave and Mash Mallows.

Possible Basic Fun Keychain Prototypes
These prototype keychain figures have appeared on Taobao this week. While these are clearly based on the Basic Fun keychain figures, we have no idea why these recolors appeard on Taobao. Some of the Applejack, Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash figures have their usual body color, but others have mixed up colors, while keeping their original eyes and cutie mark. Loose figures like these without the actual keychain have been around for a while, they are probably factory rejects. Below you can see the Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash that we own ourselves.
The reason the title says 'possible' is because these could also be fake figures. The amount of figures the Taobao seller has is a bit suspicious, but it's possible that a huge batch of factory rejects has been dumped. With this amount of figures it would only be a question of days before eBay starts reselling these figures.
UPDATE: They've appeared a lot of times on eBay now, they're most probably bootleg!
