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. )

My Little Pony Starlight Glimmer with Saddlebag Egmont Magazine Figure
Interesting new for those who have the Egmont My Little Pony Magazines. The newest issue comes with Starlight Glimmer + a Removable Saddlebag. This release of Starlight Glimmer is also different in terms of her mane as it's the current hairstyle she has in the show.

Cutie Mark Crew Happy Meal Toys Confirmed For US
The release of the Cutie Mark Crew Happy Meal figures at McDonalds's restaurants across Europe and parts of Asia raised a lot of questions in the US whether the figures would be released on their continent as well. After a short wait we can finally confirm that both Cutie Mark Crew and Transformers Happy Meal toys are coming up as the next series in the US! This next toy refresh is most likely planned for September 17-18.
More countries, like Canada, Mexico and Australia, also missed out on the initial release, but we have yet to receive an official announcement for those locations.
In the mean time Argentina already confirmed availability of the Cutie Mark Crew figures at their restaurants, and even included a clip that demonstrates what figures are available and how they work.

Not available in your country? You can always check eBay for online availability!

MLP Merch Poll #174MLP Merch Poll #173 Results
Two weeks ago (yes we skipped a week due to our holiday) we asked you which Cutie Mark Crusaders member was your favorite from the newly found School of Friendship set. The results are pretty close, but the winner was Sweetie Belle! She is closely followed by Apple Bloom and Scootaloo ended up in last place, but it's all very close.
