Big Surprise: Hasbro Releases New Wave of Blind Bags
A big surprise this week from Hasbro with the release of a new wave of blind bags! Last year we thought it was game over for the classic blind bag waves with the continuous release of Cutie Mark Crew figures, but this turns out the be just a pause.
This week an images was shared on Instagram showing two well-known blind bag ponies with new cards attached. As far as we can tell the ponies in this wave are all re-releases from earlier transparent lines, like Wave 14, 16 and 17, with one exception: Rainbow Smile. A trademarked name we couldn't find a reference to anywhere else, and judging by the name, color and pose it could be a new name for Rainbowshine.
All figures come with a fully transparent body, no painted mane/tail and no added glitter. Though, there seems to be some color variations from the earlier releases, and we spot usage of the new eye designs from later waves.
The figures were found in Mexico, and we didn't see them at the NY Toy Fair this year or last year. This raises the question whether the new wave (technically #25 if we exclude Best Gift Ever) is a worldwide release, or of this wave will only see specific countries. Still, if that latter is the case, they could still end up in discount stores like the budget EqG dolls.

Wave 17 Blind Bags Images Released + CODES
The first images of wave 17 blind bags have been found, and Hasbro has been generous this time: HQ images of all ponies and blind bag cards are included! This way we were able to fill our MLP Blind Bag Database and figure out the codes for this wave! As expected, this wave is a re-release of wave 7, but with a missing characters like the wonderbolts (who get a release anyway) and Barber Groomsby. These have been replaced with Nightmare Night-themed chase figures, as we've seen before on eBay and Taobao. The regular characters are transparent ponies with embedded glitter (like wave 13), and the chase figures have regular material.
(Sadly, we didn't hear anything about the release of wave 16 yet)
Below we have a list of all the codes and ponies that we now know of:

Wave 16 Blind Bags on Amazon + CODES
Finally we get some more official info on the wave 16 blind bags, this time through Amazon.
Not only do we see some of the figures more detailed than ever, this also reveals the final bag and card designs. Earlier this week we anticipated the blind bag codes for this wave, and it matches! Below we have the complete list of codes and characters, but you can also find them in our MLP Blind Bag Database (we'll update the images later).

MLP Wave 16 Berryshine Blind Bag
A new Wave 16 Chase figure has been found on Taobao (as pointed out by Anonymous, thanks for the heads up!) And we have a pale white pony. But who is it? Well she shares her cutie mark with Berryshine and Pinot Noir but the latter one didn't appear in the Luna Eclipse episode so that seems unlikely. But let's examine this figure: Her mane color is white as is a ghost's cloak. Her eye color is the same and as you can see the same shape above the eyes is also incidental. So I think we can almost confirm that this is Berryshine. Quite... weird. But we'll have to see the Blind Bag Cards to confirm it for a 100%

As for those wondering: "Hey, but then she gets two Blind Bags?" well that's correct. During the Toy Fair she was also shown with a safari outfit. In the episode she actually also had a second costume: The Safari one so it seems likely she will receive another Nightmare Night Blind Bag as well in one of the two waves who will arrive later this year.

Wave 13B Blind Bags Released in the UK
Back in the days when the first 12-pony sets were released in the UK, it took quite a while before the second part of the wave was released. Now it seems that Hasbro releases them at (almost) the same time, as Wave 13B has been spotted at Tesco, 3 days after the initial finds of Wave 13A.
Thanks to Victor, we now have images of the second blind bag, and as you can see: There is no window to spot the pony! This means that it's necessary to read the codes again, and we have them below (Although we're not sure what code-sequence they use, at least the order of ponies is correct):

Possible MLP Glitter Wave 13 Blind Bags
Taobao has sometimes got quite some interesting new things. For example, these Blind Bags were found recently. As you can see there are a lot of transculent Blind Bags with glitter inside their bodies and without painted manes. As you can see they also have the official Blind Bag eyes and Cutie Marks. Another interesting thing is that the combination of the body colour and Cutie Mark actually fit the resembled pony! A lot of these have been found so I guess that there's a really high change these will be for wave 13. As for now it seems like a lot of the Wave 3 Ponies will be included then. What do you think?

Thanks to Flitter for the heads up! We have more close-ups of them below with their names (only of the glitter ones)
