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!

Store Finds: Valentines, Tempest Shadow & Much More!
This week we're doing things a bit differently in the store finds post. We've got quite a lot of submits, and instead of splitting it by the person who submitted the news, we're dividing the post per store. This way it's a bit easier to see which sets were found in every store.
If you happen to find brand new stuff in your local store, then feel free to write us a small message with photos.

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.

Exclusive First Look at Cutie Mark Crew Blind Bags!
At the first announcement, only two weeks ago, we've read tons of positive responses on the Cutie Mark Crew series that Hasbro will introduce this year. After a bit of digging we managed to get more information about the first set of blind bags that will be released alongside the 5-packs. And not just any bit of info, but the complete line-up for wave 1 + box design!
The Cutie Mark Crew blind bags line continues with the regular 24 characters per box, but this time you'll get either a pony, seapony or Equestria Girl. In all three categories the mane 6 is featured, but one is missing: a seapony Rarity is not included. This first wave, which is named 'Cafeteria Cuties', the totals come up at 12 ponies, 5 seaponies and 7 Equestria Girls.
Every character comes with a unique accessory and a 'home' in which they fit, and these can be stacked on top of each other to easily store and display your collection of Cutie Mark Crew figures.
Below we have the list of characters that will be included in the first wave, which is expected to be released in May of 2018. Also listed is the official description for this new line of blind bags.

MLP Merch Poll #161MLP Merch Poll #160 Results
Last week we asked you what is the most important thing (or feature) you're looking for in new My Little Pony lines. The most popular subject is something that we hear a lot in the comments: over 33% of you primarily want to see new characters get a release. Right after that, with 30%, is the overall design of the figure and almost 22% prefer show accurate figures. All other votes, which included a good price (7%) scored much lower and can be seen in the full list of results above.
And from that conclusion we jump right to the actual new line of 2018, which was ironically announced a day later.

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!

My Little Pony Cutie Mark Crew Twilight Sparkle Figure
Think we have quite the scoop here. This morning I found some brand new interesting My Little Pony items. Looks like this year Hasbro will introduce a new My Little Pony themed sub-line called Cutie Mark Crew. By looking at other toy companies it's clear that mini-figures like Shopkins, Tsum Tsum's and many similar toys are quite popular these days. So Hasbro perhaps saw this as an opportunity to create something similar.

British website the Entertainer has listed some new interesting items on their website: MLP Stickits by Vivid Imaginations. These funny-shaped sticker ponies function as micro sticker containers. Judging from the product images I suppose there's a button somewhere on the pony and when you press it a sticker will come out. Oh, talking about stickers, they are of course included including some shiny ones as well. They are listed for 6 pounds each but are out of stock at the moment. Still, perhaps we'll see some of these in stores soon as well. If you find it please let us know so we can include it into one of our store-find post!
Have the listings and images below!

Store Finds: Twilight & Tempest GoH, Seaponies & South America Figures
Notice we didn't put '& more' in the title? Yes, while everyone is shopping for holiday gifts, the amount of new releases in stores is at an all time low. In the past 2 weeks the below 3 finds have reached us, but hopefully we'll quickly see news on the 2018 merch line!

Pirate Fluttershy Guardians of Harmony Figure Confirmed!
This week we got reports of a Pirate Fluttershy appearing in stores, but with the lack of images we had no proof of her existence. That changes today as a vague Thai Instagram shop shared images of her in packaging!
Judging by the packaging she's part of the Single Figure line, together with Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle pirate figures. In the box you'll of course get a Fluttershy figure in her pirate outfit, complete with articulation, a pirate Angel figure and a bottle. Compared to Pinkie and Twilight the accessory is a bit random, but it's great to see a pirate Angel!
So far this figure has been spotted in South Africa and Thailand, which is an odd release schedule for new merch. Usually we see it appear in Singapore first, then listings at wholesalers pop-up and then it gets a global release within a few weeks. This figure however, has none of those, which might indicate that this figure is an "international exclusive". Although that's just speculation, please do send us a message when you see this in stores so we can keep a close eye on when and where she appears.
Thanks to Tomo and kids_and_fun_shop
