Store Finds: Reveal the Magic, Dollar Tree, Mini Bows & More
It's been a while since our latest store finds post! Big reason behind this is the lower amount of merch in stores than ever (at least, based on what we see), but we managed to save up enough recent stuff that it's worthy of a new post.
We've got more Reveal the Magic figures, lots of stuff at Dollar Tree, redesigned Radz figures 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.

My Little Pony Sunset Shimmer Kotobukiya Bishoujo StatueMy Little Pony Applejack Kotobukiya Bishoujo Statue
Several days ago pre-orders for the Kotobukiya Bishoujo Rainbow Dash Statue started but we have some more Kotobikuya news for you! On their twitter page they've revealed the colored version for the Applejack Statue which looks really good, but they have also announced a new character to join the line-up: Sunset Shimmer. This is quite interesting as her announcement came quite as a surprise, of course you can't have Equestria Girls/Anthro MLP Character without including Sunset Shimmer in my opnion. This also makes me wonder if they will eventually release other characters as well overtime such as the Princesses, Starlight etc.

More info regarding Sunset Shimmer is coming soon. A painted Rainbow Dash and Applejack will be shown during this years Wonder Festival on the 9th of February.

Kotobukiya Shows Final Rainbow Dash Statue Design + Applejack Concept
Plans can change over the time, and we've seen plenty of collectibles and ideas that never made the final cut. On the other end of the spectrum we have Kotobukiya who, after the initial announcement 2 years ago, is still following their steady pace of designing and releasing bishoujo statues based on the Mane 6.
Today they shared tons of photos of the finalized Rainbow Dash statue design, and it's stunning! She's still true to the initial mane 6 concept art and features a tad darker skin color than the other girls and has a very playful and dynamic pose. As with the others there is plenty of detailed designing that got into the statue, and even the pattern on the bottom of the shoes has been thought of. Especially impressive is the hair style and "floating" jacket that Rainbow Dash combines with a white tank top and hot pants.
The pony Rainbow Dash next to the statue is also striking a pose and is ready to fly at any moment. With 3D eye lashes and styled hair the pony got the same level of treatment as her human counterpart. Both are placed on a circular base with a light blue and white cutie mark pattern.
More images of her can be found below.

My Little Pony Cutie Mark Crew Series 5My Little Pony Cutie Mark Crew Series 5
Today I stumbled upon something very interesting on Taobao. It has been pretty quiet when it comes to the Cutie Mark Crew Line. Especially with the G4.5 Potion Blind Bags being released in stores now as we speak. We know that Hasbro had already revealed the sixth Series of Cutie Mark Crew Figures several months ago. But only fourth sets had been released so far worldwide with no word of a release of the fifth series. Turns out that the fifth series has been released in Russia. (Thanks to Aljona and Tomo for the heads up!) This series was released in the confetti balloon packaging just as listed on the Ukrainian Website.

My Little Pony Bridesmaid Rarity Egmont Magazine Figure
A new Magazine has been released in Eastern Europe and this time with a new figure. For this issue Rarity will be included wearing her Bridesmaid outfit worn in the Canterlot Wedding Episodes. The figure itself is the same as the first version of her released in 2014, but she now comes with a removable dress and headpiece.

MLP Mash'ems Series 12 Featuring Student 6 Now At Walmart
A brand new series of Mash'ems (formerly Fash'ems) has popped-up at Walmart this week, featuring the Student 6. The retail box features a Smolder Mash'em in the display window and contains 12 capsules, which should be enough to get a full set of 6 figures.
Included are at least Gallus, Ocellus, Smolder, Yona and Silverstream, together with a mystery figure. By the outline it looks to be Cozy Glow instead of Sandbar. He seems to have been traded with Ocellus compared with the latest Stack'ems set.
Whether this is an early release at Walmart or not is unknown, so far we only heard of this particular find and Walmart as not yet listed them on their website. If anyone else has found these at their local Walmart, please let us know.

Thanks to SLPhotos for the photos!

Fashion Squad Minty Found Ahead of Release
Soon we'll get to see a second wave of the G4.5 Fashion Squad Equestria Girls figures, and one of those will be a set with Pinkie Pie and... Minty! It will be her first release in the Fashion Squad line, and actually her first release in the Equestria Girls line at all. Who knew that a pony that has been popular since Generation 1 could see so little releases in G4!

First Series of G4.5 Ponies Found at Target
Together with the release of the brand new blind bags set Target also added the first series of Generation 4.5 ponies and figures on the shelves, or at least, most of it. What has been spotted so far are the Potion Ponies ($4.99), Magical Mane Rarity ($21.49), Fashion Squad Singles ($4.99) and Potion Princesses ($14.99). The few sets that were already announced and not found could be available at other Target stores, or perhaps release at a later moment.

Second 12-Pack of G4.5 Blind Bags Found at Target
After the original announcement and availability at Amazon people spotted a second 12-figure box at Walmart, which we named Batch 1A quickly after. Instead of waiting for the second set to release at a later point we got a surprise update today: the second half of the set, Batch 1B, has just been released at Target!
Aside from the split of characters there are no other changes to the series. Even the codes on the packaging are exactly the same over all sets. More on that below.
This second half of the first batch (previously called waves) features Princess Celestia, Twilight Sparkle, Winona (black), Tank (blue), Angel, Gummy, Opalescence (black), a hippo and 4 unnamed unicorns.
Thanks to Victor & Samantha for the info and photos!

12-Pack of G4.5 Blind Bags Already at Walmart
Earlier this week we found the first image of the brand new G4.5 blind bags set online, and just before the new year Walmart already released them in stores! (And Amazon now, too)
There's only one odd thing here: the set that was found on the shelves is a 12-pack, whereas the US normally gets a full 24-pack, just like the images we found earlier. Not only that, but the packaging only features English and French text, not Spanish as US releases usually have.
These 12-pack releases with two languages is commonly released in the UK, so it is possible that this set that hit the stores is a mix-up.
The figures included are the first set we posted in our previous post containing Tank, Winona, (brown) Angel, Opalescence, Lyra, Amethyst Star, unknown green pony, Gummy, Potion Nova, Cha Cha, a hippopotamus and Rarity.
While the Cutie Mark Crew confetti is gone, these new blind bags do come with another (potentially even messier) way of opening them: water! You can flip open the potion bottles, pour in some water, and after shaking them for a while the dust should dissolve and the pony will be revealed. Just make sure you close the potion bottle tight before shaking! (See photo and video of this below)
Update: First wave of Magical Potion Surprise is now on Amazon for just $2.99 each. Listing mentions 24 figures in contrast to the split box found in stores.

Thanks to SLPhotos for the photos & videos!
