My Little Pony Right Hoof Red Twister Figure

Trust me I was as confused as some of you people were when seeing these for the first time. But it looks like we're getting some ponies themed after Lite Brite and Twister. A bit weird in my opinion seeing as the last crossover ponies were all based on IP's with actual characters. Still I think these look really cool! They each also have unique names. The Lite Brite Pony is called Peggy Mane while the Twister Pony is called Right Hoof Red. Peggy Mane's symbol is a ship made with a Lite Brite set and she also has translucent hair. (wonder if it lights up...) Right Hoof Red's symbol is the classic Twister Spinner while she has colored dots on the other side of her body.

Basic Fun Shows New G1 Retro Ponies at London Toy Fair
What started in 2018 as the 35th Anniversary series of retro G1 ponies continues for a 3rd year here in 2020! Over in London at the annual Toy Fair, Basic Fun has shown what new ponies we can expect soon. Shown are Cherries Jubilee, Gusty, Heart Throb, Lickety-Split, Posey, Sparkle and Tootsie.
All originate from the year 3 Earth, Pegasus and Unicorn sets, and features almost the complete line. When comparing those sets and what has been on display the Toy Fair, we're only missing Surprise, Powder and Skyflier. Whether any of these will be included in the wave is yet to be confirmed.
All earth ponies come with a brush, ribbon and mini-post and the ponies in the unicorn & pegasus set receive a comb, ribbon and puffy sticker.
A release date is not yet given, but we expect these to pop up at Target around the end of Q1.
Thanks to Wigwam Toys for the photos!

Hasbro Announces My Little Pony Retro Rainbow Mane 6
After the My Little Pony 35th Anniversary celebration from last year, Hasbro goes back in time again and announces a brand new set of retro ponies based on the modern mane 6!
The main cast from Friendship is Magic is shaped after ponies from older generation, though with a little twist. Fluttershy, Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash are molded after the classic G1 Firefly pose and Pinkie Pie, Rarity and Applejack are a mixture of G1 and G3 styles. Color-wise the ponies have not changed, but the cutie marks did: they increased in number and size, looking more like the G1 symbols than their current cutie marks.
All ponies come in a single box that is covered with retro-vibes, and even the logo from the first generation! We also received some crazy hi-res images of this set, of which we shared a little compilation below to show you the quality of detail of the figures and packaging.

The My Little Pony Retro Rainbow Mane 6 collection will be an Amazon exclusive and release on the first of September. Pre-orders are available for $24.99.

Together with this new set comes the premiere of My Little Pony: The Retro Show, a free weekly show where Hasbro looks back on the history of My Little Pony from the 80's and 90's.

And if you still have more thirst for retro My Little Pony, why not take a look at our own book My Little Pony Collectibles, where we take a look at the rich history of MLP throughout the generations!

Finally Official: Stranger Things x My Little Pony Applejack
Today is the start of the new Stranger Things season, and for this season Netflix has partnered up with Hasbro and Basic Fun to release this very special Stranger Things-themed Applejack. She is not looking like her regular self and comes with a white and blue color scheme, which includes her mane, tail and symbol/cutie mark. The latter of which is intentionally printed upside-down.
She comes in a monochrome box and is always packed wrong side up. On the back we see the usual style of the 35th Anniversary ponies, though it only showing Applejack. Within the box you not only get the pony, but a bow and hairbrush are included too. Everything in matching blue.
This special Applejack is currently only available in-store at Target, where you can pick her up for $9.99. Note that a handful of ponies are also available from 3rd part sellers on Amazon, though with a higher price tag.
