If you happen to find brand new stuff in your local store, then feel free to write us a small message with photos.

New MLP Happy Meals Toys Coming Soon to the US
Fans of My Little Pony in the US will be happily surprised that new Happy Meal toys are coming soon to McDonalds. However, there's a downside: they're not related to MLP The Movie, and are actually old.
That's right, the figures coming to Happy Meals in a few weeks are the exact same figures that were released in Europe back in March. This set features figures of Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Rarity and Twilight Sparkle with brushable tails and every character comes with their own accessory.
And that's not all! Aside from figures, you'll also be able to get My Little Pony masks of the same characters, which were originally released in January 2016, making this set over 1.5 year old!
Overall this is a pretty weird move, knowing that the release of this Happy Meal set is around the same time as MLP The Movie, we would have expected something related to the movie to be including, but sadly this is not the case.
Thanks to Priscilla and anonymous for the heads-up!

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!

MLP The Movie Cinema Promotions + Figures Revealed
If you're going to see My Little Pony The Movie in October, you'll probably get some popcorn and drinks to enjoy the movie. But what's better than plain old boxes and cups? That's right: MLP The Movie themed stuff! A company known for cinema marketing as released images of a range of tubs,  cups, tray and topper figures that will be available at concession stand when the movie is in theaters.
The cups, tub and tray are made of pretty solid plastic, so they're perfect to take home after the movie, and of course the figures are collectibles. As seen in the images we'll at least get figures of Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Rarity and Twilight Sparkle in movie-style, placed on a blue base.
Since the figures are toppers you're required to get at least 4 cups of soda in order to complete the collection, but perhaps some theaters offer the figures to be sold loose.
Thanks to Jeffrey for the info!

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 Merch Poll #119MLP Merch Poll #118 Results
Last week we asked you what your ideal MLP magazine would look like. As you might have guessed the big winner is freebies. If we look past this clear winner it's posters that people are looking for, as well as stories and concept art. Submitted art and stories are the least popular on this list.

New My Little Pony Happy Meal Toys in Europe
The My Little Pony Happy Meal toys released in New Zealand at the end of last year are finally getting a broader release, starting with Europe. From all over the continent we've gotten reports, and we've seen them in ourselves in The Netherlands too. Other reports came from Poland, Finland and Sweden. This wave has only 4 ponies: Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Rarity and Twilight Sparkle. While New Zealand also saw a Fluttershy release she has been left out in the European line. The figures themselves are still the same and each "Reboot Style" figure comes with their own accessory. Rainbow Dash has a comb, Rarity a mirror, Twilight Sparkle comes with a notepad and Pinkie Pie has some kind of paper cutter/stamp. You can now get them in your Happy Meal or buy them loose, which usually costs between €1.50 and €2.
Thanks to Ozzie and Martyna for the info and Jonna for the images!

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!

Baby Flurry Heart Magazine Figure Released
Over in France the MLP Magazine is now bundled with a free Baby Flurry Heart figure. This was already announced back in December, but we now have some proper images of the actual figure!
The figure looks decent (especially since it's free), but according to the submitter Flurry Heart is a bit wobbly and it's hard to keep her from falling over (well it is still a foal, after all).
The next magazine figure in France will be Spike. Other European MLP Magazine might also receive the Baby Flurry Heart this month, but we've not heard of any other finds yet.

Talking about magazine figures, did you know that you can see all released magazine figures in our MLP Merch Database?

Thanks to Neptune for the info!
