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!
