Kotobukiya Shows Finalized Rarity + Rainbow Dash Prototype DesignsKotobukiya Shows Finalized Rarity + Rainbow Dash Prototype Designs
A small 3 months after the previous announcement from Kotobukiya we can happily say that the Rarity Bishoujo statue design has received it's layer of colors and was finalized. Matching her pony-form color schema, the humanized Rarity figure features a white shirt with purple skirt and belt and long wavy locks. She also rocks a gold bracelet and large necklace, together with a hair clip representing her cutie mark. The pony that accompanies the human statue is a well-designed 3D presentation of Rarity, being it with very heavy eyelashes. More images of both can be seen later in the post.
Just like the statues before, this stage of the development process also means that pre-orders are now available. So far we were only able to find a pre-order listing on the Kotobukiya site itself, but expect sites that usually offer statues like this to follow soon.

Kotobukiya News: Rarity Prototype and Fluttershy Pre-OrdersKotobukiya News: Rarity Prototype and Fluttershy Pre-Orders
We've got two great reports from Kotobukiya for you today: Both the prototype of the Rarity bishoujo statue and the final colored design of the Fluttershy statue (including pre-orders) too! News on the figures came in through Twitter and their official blog, and is just in time for the start of the SDCC today.

This is the first time we get to see a prototype version of the Rarity bishoujo statue, currently still in its unpainted state. The human statue has a very posh pose and outfit, combined with curly locks similar to her pony-equivalent and a seductive face. Rarity as a pony lays on the floor and comes with a greatly detailed mane and even sculpted eyelashes.

Of Fluttershy, who is the 3rd statue in the series, we now get to see the final colored design of her showing the bright hair color and contrasting details on her dress. Pony Fluttershy got some beautiful shaded wings, combined with show-accurate colors and details. The Fluttershy statue is now available for pre-order too, and has an expected release date of December 2019.

Kotobukiya Twilight Sparkle Bishoujo Statue Pre-Orders Now Available
Earlier this week we reported on the final design of Kotobukiya's Twilight Sparkle Bishoujo statue, and now the pre-orders for her are open! With $99.99 as the MSRP it's an expensive piece, but as seen on the images below you get an immensely detailed statue in return. Both the 8.46" tall human character as well as the Twilight Sparkle pony are uniquely designed and molded with eye for detail. Take a look at the Elements of Harmony book for example!

My Little Pony Kotobukiya Twilight Sparkle Bishoujo Statue
With the Pinkie Pie Bishoujo Statue being fully revealed and up for pre-order, it was only a matter of time before Kotobukiya would be teasing their next statue: Twilight Sparkle. We already got a look at the concept art for this statue but now Kotobukiya has posted the sculpt on their Facebook Page. Just like Pinkie Pie this figure is very detailed and the sculpt looks absolutely amazing. I bet she will look stunning when the colors are added!

Kotobukiya Pinkie Pie Bishoujo Statue Now Available For Pre-Order
After a long series of teasers Kotobukiya finally made the Pinkie Pie bishoujo statue available for pre-order today. Not only that, but the new listings contain additional photos of the figure and the "final product may vary" notice has been dropped. We couldn't spot any major changes so soon, but this is the first time the figure could be seen in such detail! You'll find these photos further down this post.
International customers will be able to pre-order a statue through Entertainment Earth, where it's listed for $99.99. The release date in the US is set for late June / early July 2019, so we'd have to keep our patience for a few more months!

My Little Pony at the 2018 SDCC
Today we have a special guest report from Anto, who was kind enough to shoot photos at this year's San Diego Comic Con of everything My Little Pony that was on display across the convention floor.
Hasbro had a relatively large booth this year with lots of items that are going to be release this year, including Cutie Mark Crew, Ultimate Equestria Collection and Best Gift Ever sets.
And of course we get to take a peek at an actual prototype of the Pinkie Pie Bishoujo statue can be seen.

Twilight Sparkle Confirmed As Second Kotobukiya Bishoujo Statue
Kotobukiya's original announcement of the Bishoujo Pinkie Pie statue already teased about a complete line, and this week we got the confirmation that there will at least be a second statue in the series! On a Japanese blog's Twitter an image was shared showing that Twilight Sparkle won a poll for who the second figure would become. According to sources, the poll consisted of both mane 6 and non mane-6 ponies.
As seen in the image above, no further information is available on the design or release of the new figure. In fact, we're still waiting for addition info on Pinkie Pie, so we need to keep our patience a bit longer for these very promising figures!
Thanks to Ayu for the info!

Kotobukiya Announces Equestria Girls Bishoujo Series
While we were all focusing on the Toy Fair in New York, over in Japan at the Wonderful Festival a completely different announcement regarding My Little Pony merch was made: Kotobukiya is partnering with Hasbro to create actual Bishoujo statues! Directly during the convention they also put out an official statement and better image on their Facebook page confirming Shunya Yamashita as the illustrator and more figures from My Little Pony and GI Joe coming too.

The teaser images shows a highly detailed Equestria Girls Pinkie Pie, but also a regular pony version of her. It's unknown if these will be combined in a single figure, or if both will be released as separate statues. Personally I wouldn't mind either option!

At the time of writing no further information on release dates, prices or actual product designs is known. But once the release is inbound, there's some good news for oversees fans: The statues of Kotobukiya are usually well available outside of Japan.

Thanks to Ayu, Amanda & shadowcat456 for the heads-up!
