My Little Pony Special Magazine by Signature Publishing
A very interesting mail has appeared in our inbox as Signature Publishing itself has mailed us with some very exciting magazine news!
The UK MLP Magazines are quite popular with their 100th issue being released later this year. In a response to the success Signature Publishing has just announced the "My Little Pony Special" magazines. According to Editorial Director Amanda Clifford we can expect the following:

MLP Merch Poll #167MLP Merch Poll #166 Results
Last week we asked you if you ever visited thrift shops looking for pony merch. While some countries don't have any thrift shops, a very large group (61%) visits them from time to time! Another group of 10% shops at thrift stores, but not for pony-related stuff, leaving 29% of the people who never visit such shops.

Whew it's been a while hasn't it? A more detailed post which explains the silence these days will be up soon. But thrust me, it's for a reason. (and a rather nice one as well. ;) )
Anyway BigBadToyStore has listed some new items up for pre-order. Some of them we already known like the upcoming Pony Friends Singles, and the awesome Starlight & Trixie Fan Series figure.

Around a week ago we learned about the Snap On Fashions Rainbow Dash fashion style figure that would complete the new mane 6 set with interchangeable clothes. The original announcement only included a picture of Rainbow Dash's gala dress, but the second dress wasn't visible. At the NY Toy Fair we got a glimpse of the packaging, but not a clear enough view for her second outfit.
But, surprise surprise, she's already listed online! Detmir has all 6 ponies listed, and Rainbow Dash is shown in her complete alternate dress-up! The purple dress and gold accents combines nicely with her accessories.
However, we did notice something odd: The NYTF figure was packaged in a MLP:FiM themed box, whereas this listing has a MLP the Movie logo on it. Was this figure perhaps planned to be released last year?
Thanks to Tomo for the heads-up!

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

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!

It's that time of the year again when Hasbro shares a lot of information about upcoming merch: The NEw York Toy Fair. After their presentation (which didn't had any specific news about My Little Pony) they've published their Media Kits containing part of their line-up for this year. Some of them have already been revealed (and some of them are already available) so we will post about the brand new ones! For example, a whole Holiday themed line will be released at the end of the year including new Pearlized ponies!  Have all the My Little Pony and Equestria Girls news below!

My Little Pony Ultimate Equestria Collection Brushables
Our apologies for not posting these earlier. We were both asleep and we both work now so it's a bit later than usual. Anyway Hasbro has once again mailed us with information and high quality items of two very interesting items. The first one is the official announcement of the Cutie Mark Crew Figures and the second item is in my opinion just awesome.

Better Look at Cutie Mark Crew Blind Bags
Only two days ago we reported on the Blind Bag box of Cutie Mark Crew figures, which is going to be a fresh reboot of the My Little Pony blind bag series. While the box was nice and clear, the 24 included characters were only available in a rather small resolution. Luckily we've now managed to get detailed images of some of these blind bags! Above and below we have the pony versions of Applejack, Fluttershy and Shining Armor, Equestria Girls Rarity and a better look at the blind bag/box/container. So far we couldn't spot a code on the container, but it might be on the other side.

Disclaimer, if you don't want much info about season 8 you might want to skip this post. Or just look at the images. Anyway, time to discuss these two brand new brushables shall we?
