Next Polish MLP Magazine Includes Sugar Belle Figure
A little while ago there was some confusion about the Sugar Belle figure that was going to be included in a new line of collectible books, while she wasn't feature in a regular Egmont MLP Magazine yet. Luckily we can now confirm that she is in fact going to be released the regular way with the next Polish MLP magazine. In fact, according to the date mentioned on the front this magazine should now be available in stores! 

For those not familiar with the line, the European magazines (and US recently too) occasionally contain free figures, that are praised for their accurateness and quality. While they're not available in every country, they're often traded between collectors and on eBay.

Comments of those who found them in stores are welcome below!

Store Finds: Magazine Figures in US, Stamps, Pillows & More
In the Store Finds series we take a look at recent findings of My Little Pony toys and merch in stores or online. This week there's some more news on Equestria Girls reboot dolls, a Twilight Sparkle pillow, the release of magazine figures in the US and more!
If you happen to find brand new stuff in your local store, then feel free to write us a small message with photos.

Sugar Belle Magazine Figure Possibly Coming Soon
The Polish My Little Pony Magazine website has updated their website with an interesting announcement: We'll probably see a Sugar Belle magazine figure soon! That's right, not Sweetie Belle, who is still missing from the line-up, but Sugar Belle.
According to the website, a new line of magazines is to be released soon, which not only include a magazine figure each, but also some cardboard pieces to build a miniature version of Ponyville. After 20 magazines you'll have a complete set of figures and pieces to complete the collection.

However, there's a bit of mystery around the images that they have released: Basically all Magazine Figures are listed on the images, up until the My Little Pony the Movie characters started to be packed with magazines a few months ago. Pirate/Glory Fluttershy is also missing, yet Sugar Belle (who has not been released yet) is listed.

At this time we're unsure wether Sugar Belle will be an exclusive figure for this line, or that the regular magazine line will feature a release of her too. We'll have to wait and see which is the case!
Thanks to Piklafon for the heads-up!

MLP Magazine in Bulgaria Gets Princess Skystar With Next Issue
The first magazine from September are currently being released around Europe, which contains a free Glory (pirate) Fluttershy magazine figure. Something else that is always of interest in these magazine is the announcement for the next figure!
This month Bulgaria got the prime release and of course the next figure is again MLP the Movie themed: Princess Skystar is next! As usual these figures are from Egmont and closely follow the style from the series (or movie in this case).
We do expect more countries to get a new magazine any time soon, and it'll be an interesting one, because we've also seen announcements for a Tempest Shadow figure in some countries in stead of Princess Skystar, so let's see if they're still planning to do so!
Thanks to Leader Pony for the info!

Glory Fluttershy Magazine Figure Announced in Polish Magazine
While the France My Little Pony magazine is getting a Tempest Shadow figure in October, the Polish magazine is already giving a new figure next month: a (pirate) Glory Fluttershy figure, also from MLP The Movie. It's a bit odd that two magazines hand out announcements for two different months and figures, but perhaps there has been a mistake and both France and Poland do get a Fluttershy figure next month.
In anyway, what do you think of this figure choice? Would you have rather seen an MLP The Movie exclusive figure for both month, or are you excited for this Flutershy?
Thanks to kuco for the info & MiniJusta for translation!

MLP Magazine Tempest Shadow Figure
We've lacked behind a bit with MLP magazine news, but we've got a great update: The upcoming magazine will feature a unique Tempest Shadow figure! Of course this is still only with the European magazines like those released in the UK, France, Poland, Germany and The Netherlands.
And because we've missed an update, we'd also like to let you know that current magazines should still include a Pinkie Pie with clown nose (see below).
Thanks to Tomo for the Tempest Shadow info and Neptune for the Pinkie Pie photo!

Rarity With Sunglasses Free With This Months Polish Magazine
I'm not sure whether they're running out of ideas or this is one of the most requested figures, but the current wave of Polish, French and UK MLP Magazines features a Rarity figure with sunglasses! When comparing the figure with the original Rarity figure from 2014 we do see a new approach at the mane and tail molding, so it's in no means a direct copy of the early release.
The magazine is at least released in Poland, the UK, France and several other European countries that normally sell magazines with the figures. Here in The Netherlands we're still waiting for a new issue, but that should be out this month.
Thanks to Paulina and super_fluttershymlp.3mlp

MLP Magazine Figures Now Available in The Netherlands
Hasbro has given the license for official My Little Pony magazine publisher in The Netherlands to Big Balloon publishing, after the deal with Panini ended earlier this year.
The shift to Big Balloon means that the contents of the magazine will change and perhaps the biggest bonus of all: the famous MLP Magazine Figures will now also be released in The Netherlands, starting with Flurry Heart in the April issue.
According to Hasbro Benelux the magazine will be available at large bookstore chains like Bruna, AKO and Primera as well as several supermarkets.
At this moment we're only aware of a shift in licensee for The Netherlands, but other European countries might follow. Do note that this is another magazine release than the recently announced US magazine series.

Store Finds: Plush, Lollipops, Stack'ems & More
This week we've got a very international store finds post with photos from the US, UK, Ireland, Singapore and Poland! We see a few first-time release merch as well as some merch that has now been confirmed to be available in other countries, so head on down and read all about it!

Wonderbolts Rainbow Dash Coming in April MLP Magazines
After the Baby Flurry Heart figure, who got very mixed responses from collectors, the next figure to be bundled with the MLP Magazine is a Rainbow Dash figure in Wonderbolts outfit. This is the first time Egmont decided to go with an alternative outfit for the included figure instead of a new character. Later this year they will get a bigger pool of popular characters with the release of My Little Pony The Movie, so hopefully we'll see some more characters towards that day.
The announcement seen above is for the German magazine, but usually other countries with the same magazine receive the figure around the same time.
Thanks to Nora4 for the image!
