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.

Hasbro Reveals 2019 SDCC Exclusive Through The Years Twilight Sparkle
A few minutes ago Hasbro has officially shared images and information on this year's San Diego Comic Con exclusive figure, which is a throwback to the 35th Anniversary of My Little Pony! Twilight Sparkle is combined with her former self, Twilight, in this exclusive Through The Years 2-pack.
The G4 Twilight Sparkle combines an existing 3" body with new face and mane design (with bangs!), while the G1-based Twilight has a brand new pearlized design with the looks of the original pony from the 1980's.
Both come in a combined see-through package showing a design of Twilight on one side and Twilight Sparkle on the other side. Each side also shows the My Little Pony design from their respected era. The set will be available for $19.99 and debut at the San Diego Comic Con. Afterwards the figure will be available on the Hasbro Pulse website while stock lasts.

Store Finds: G1 Rainbow Ponies, Lots at Ross, Easter Basket & Much More
As you might have noticed we're not posting a weekly store finds report anymore. While this is partly due to our busy lives at the moment, but also the reduced amount of My Little Pony stuff that is currently being released. The announced end of the G4 series is definitely not helping, but we're hoping to report on new stuff soon.
For now most of the items found in stores are discounted old stock and a handful of new items. Nevertheless interesting news if you're looking to complete your collection!
