First G5 Magazine Figure Released in France
This year, with all the upcoming excitement for G5, we haven't seen that many new magazine figures being released in Europe. This week the wait is over as in France the first G5 magazine (with a free figure) was revealed and is now available.

Egmont Releases First Brushable Figure in New UK Magazine

We occasionally post about the latest MLP magazines from the UK and Europe when a new freebie figure is included. When looking at their page in the MLP Merch Database you'll notice one thing: they all have molded manes!

Well, that's no longer the case as of this month, as today Egmont releases UK issue #141 with a brushable Applejack figure. The figure itself looks very similar to the molds they used for the regular versions, but instead of her hat and molded mane/tail this figure has long brushable locks. Especially her tail looks quite long as it seems to almost wrap around.

Combined with the magazine is also a set of stickers and accessories, including a tiny comb. What the quality of the hair is, and whether the comb goes through the hair smoothly, is currently unknown. If you've managed to find the magazine and want to share your thought, feel free to let us know in the comments!

Thanks to Sebby for the heads-up!

My Little Pony 2021 McDonald's Happy Meal Toys

UPDATE: The figures will be released in, at least, Saudi Arabia. We hope to be able to have more information on other countries tomorrow.
Looks like some new My Little Pony Happy Meal Toys will be given out starting tomorrow. Alongside My Little Pony, new Transformer toys will also be released. The My Little Pony figures are each modeled after their G4.5/Pony Life look. It also seems they each of them comes with a pergola inspired cart which you can connect to one another.

Every now and then the European MLP magazines include a figure, and it's been a while since the last issue with a freebie figure, but now we have the confirmation that Egmont will bundle a new figure with the August issue in Hungary.

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.

McDonald's Re-Releases 1998 Happy Meal G2 Pony
Whereas Basic Fun skipped the second generation of My Little Pony in their retro line of ponies (so far), we got surprise news from McDonald's this week that they are filling in that gap! As part of their 40 years anniversary of the Happy Meal they are re-releasing 17 classic toys from Happy Meals throughout the ages. One of which is the G2 Light Heart pony that was originally released in 1998.

Regarding the colors and details this pony is exactly like its 21-year-old original, including the brushable tail. The only difference is the hollow legs which have been added on this re-release.

If you'd like to add this pony to your collection you should be quick: these toys are subject to availability and are only included in Happy Meals between today (Nov 7th) and next Monday (Nov 11th). McDonald's location in at least the US and The Netherlands will offer this line of toys, it's unsure which other countries include this promotion as well.
Update: The happy meal figures are packaged as blind bags, and according to multiple confirmations #12 is the Light Heart pony. (Thanks mylittleponyukcollector)

Thanks to Alex for the heads-up!

My Little Pony Happy Meal in More Countries + New Figures
We're back from our holiday and are back to share the latest MLP news with all of you! On our way back we were able to pick up Rainbow Dash from the My Little Pony Happy Meal 2019 line, and no, we didn't go through Switzerland. Here in The Netherlands McDonald's launched the same line of Happy Meal figures, which includes unique versions of Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Rarity and Twilight Sparkle.
But there is more news, as the line is also available in Argentina, Brazil and Mexico. However, in those countries the set does not only contain the ponies mentioned above, but features new figures of Starlight Glimmer and Spike as well! Pictures of both are shown below.
More countries could potentially receive this set in the future, as we've seen delays of months between countries in the past, but we don't have any definitive information on that.

If you can't wait for them to become available in your country: the first listings for these figures are now available on eBay.

Thanks to Sil for the heads-up!

New My Little Pony Happy Meal Figures at McDonalds Switzerland
Looks like Burger King isn't the only one including My Little Pony figures in their kids meals. Apparently McDonalds Switzerland is now also including ponies and Transformers in their Happy Meals, all of the Mane Six to be exact. They even have a timetable available on their website which shows which pony you can get in each week, but we also decided to post it below as well.

My Little Pony and Transformer Figures Now at Burger King
After a very long pause Burger King once again features My Little Pony and Transformer toys in their King Jr meals! Four brand new figures of both brands are available, but of course we'll focus on the My Little Pony figures here.
Featured are Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle and Rarity, who all have a different mold or feature: Pinkie Pie laughs, Rainbow Dash can roll forward, Twilight Sparkle has articulated wings and tail and Rarity comes with a removable cape.
The figures all come with molded manes and tails, but are not molded completely solid. As seen on the photos the legs are hollow.

From reports that we saw all 4 figures are available at the moment within the US and Canada, but it differs from store to store which are included with the meals at that time. We've also heard of restaurants that did not offer any MLP figures yet, even after the official launch date. Information on releases in other countries are not yet known.

Thanks to Archooves, Victor, Jessie and Alex for the info!

My Little Pony Colour Changing Silverstream Magazine Figure by Egmont
After Sunburst it was only a matter of time before a new Egmont Magazine figure got revealed. And now we have the answer: Silverstream will be the next one! And this isn't just an ordinary figure as she will change colours. She was revealed in an official Egmont video which also shows that she will change colors when you drop her into the water. The video shows that she will turn from white into a very hot pink. (It would be even more awesome if she could transform into a Hippogriff but that's going to be very, very complicated. )
