New Fashion Squad 7-Pack Listed on Entertainment Earth
When new Equestria Girls Fashion Squad packs are about to be released, we noticed that Entertainment Earth is commonly the quickest with releasing official images and opening pre-orders. Today is no exception, with the announcement of a Fashion Squad 7-pack featuring the complete Mane 6 and Sunset Shimmer (or the EqG Mane 7, if you will).

New York Toy Fair 2020 Wrap-Up
The 2020 New York Toy Fair is behind us so it's time for our yearly wrap-up. And this year has been quite disappointing for those who were expecting to see tons of new merchandise. Granted we'll probably see a lot more merchandise during the next Toy Fair in 2021 since the G5 Movie will be released the same year. For this year the focus lays on the new Pony Life Series which will debut this spring/summer.

Hasbro

Hasbro My Little Pony at New York Toy Fair 2020Hasbro My Little Pony at New York Toy Fair 2020
Hasbro didn't reveal many new items this year. Most of the items shown were Reveal the Magic Toys that are actually already available. Several new items have been spotted though, including the officially announced "Kiss my Unicorn" Princess Celestia and the Unicorn Sparkle Collection which comes with DJ Pon-3, Rarity, Starlight Glimmer, Trixie and Twilight Sparkle. Alongside those two we also got a glimpse at the Potion Princess Cadance, the Potion Dress-up Rarity and new Fashion Squad singles of Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle.
There was also an absence of Cutie Mark Crew, which leaves the question what future this line will see in 2020.
And lastly we can't ignore the absolutely adorable Fluttershy juice box cushion that was on display next to the Kiss my Unicorn figure. No idea what their plans are with this, but I sure hope this will be taken in production!

Mega Mashems
Brand new are these Mega Mash'ems, which are larger versions of the well known Mash'ems/Fash'ems that we've known My Little Pony versions of since 2013. This new line will start with 4 figures: Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle and Fluttershy in blind capsules.
Meijer has listed the Mega Mash'ems last week, including a high quality render of the packaging, but it seems to be down again.

More licensed product news come from Just Play, who will start to release My Little Pony plush this year, as well as another release of the large Pinkie Pie styling head, possibly with new packaging and accessories.

YuMe

YuMe My Little Pony at New York Toy Fair 2020YuMe My Little Pony at New York Toy Fair 2020
A new name here is YuMe, who showed their first line of My Little Pony licensed products. And they start off with a pretty large line-up, including plush in various sizes, a "Magic Advent Calendar" and most excitingly: a line of collectible stampers called Pony Pals. These small stampers with pony-figures come in their own dome, with their matching pet and interchangeable flooring to customize the domes. On the display we learn that the first series will include the mane 6 and 2 others who were (purposely) left out of frame. Perhaps Trixie and Potion Nova?
While the name YuMe probably sounds unfamiliar for you, people within the EMEA (Europe, Middle-Eastern, Africa) region will get to know them very well over the next year, as they become the primary partner for plush for these markets. This is especially welcome, as the amount of plush licenses dropped significantly in the past few years.

The bishoujo statues by Kotobukiya were also on display, but the most recent reveal of the colored Applejack statue was absent. However, the teaser poster for Sunset Shimmer was there and we get the confirmation that the Rainbow Dash statue will have a slightly increased MSRP compared to the other girls, which is also reflected on their US website now.

Hasbro has just released their brand toolkits for 2020 including the one for My Little Pony. Not much new items are actually shown but we do get a look at two new items. The Kiss my Unicorn Princess Celestia and the Unicorn Sparkle collection set featuring Dj Pon-3, Rarity, Starlight Glimmer, Trixie and Twilight Sparkle. What's interesting is how both of these don't feature brushable hair anymore but more show-accurate molded manes. Have all the official info below.

My Little Pony Hasbro reveals Kiss my Unicorn Princess Celestia
During this years Hasbro Investor presentation Hasbro has revealed the upcoming: "Magical Unicorn" Princess Celestia. It's most likely that this Celestia will be the "big electronic" pony release for this year. According to the presentation you can blow kisses and talk to Celestia, and in return she will talk and her horn will also light up. The name is also used in a listing on a wholesaler website. It's quite strange seeing as Princess Celestia as actually an Alicorn.

More info will probably be revealed later this weekend during the New York Toy Fair, so stay tuned for the latest news!

Store Finds: Reveal the Magic, Dollar Tree, Mini Bows & More
It's been a while since our latest store finds post! Big reason behind this is the lower amount of merch in stores than ever (at least, based on what we see), but we managed to save up enough recent stuff that it's worthy of a new post.
We've got more Reveal the Magic figures, lots of stuff at Dollar Tree, redesigned Radz figures and more!
If you happen to find brand new stuff in your local store, then feel free to write us a small message with photos.

My Little Pony Cutie Mark Crew Series 5My Little Pony Cutie Mark Crew Series 5
Today I stumbled upon something very interesting on Taobao. It has been pretty quiet when it comes to the Cutie Mark Crew Line. Especially with the G4.5 Potion Blind Bags being released in stores now as we speak. We know that Hasbro had already revealed the sixth Series of Cutie Mark Crew Figures several months ago. But only fourth sets had been released so far worldwide with no word of a release of the fifth series. Turns out that the fifth series has been released in Russia. (Thanks to Aljona and Tomo for the heads up!) This series was released in the confetti balloon packaging just as listed on the Ukrainian Website.

 Roll over image to zoom in My Little Pony Friendship Castle Playset Including Twilight Sparkle and Pinkie Pie 3-inch Pony Figures
Amazon has listed a new interesting item: The Friendship Castle Playset with Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle. People who have been following the G4 line for some time might recognise the castle as the Wedding Castle Playset which was released in 2012. (8 years ago already! Time flies...) with some new stickers.

Now the interesting thing about this release is that it features Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle with their Reboot molds. But as you can see the eye-design for G4.5 is used. This makes us wonder if these molds will still be used overtime or that they are perhaps "leftovers" to be released in a last set before we truly get to the G4.5 design. With the New York Toy Fair around the corner I guess only time will tell.

Fashion Squad Minty Found Ahead of Release
Soon we'll get to see a second wave of the G4.5 Fashion Squad Equestria Girls figures, and one of those will be a set with Pinkie Pie and... Minty! It will be her first release in the Fashion Squad line, and actually her first release in the Equestria Girls line at all. Who knew that a pony that has been popular since Generation 1 could see so little releases in G4!

First Series of G4.5 Ponies Found at Target
Together with the release of the brand new blind bags set Target also added the first series of Generation 4.5 ponies and figures on the shelves, or at least, most of it. What has been spotted so far are the Potion Ponies ($4.99), Magical Mane Rarity ($21.49), Fashion Squad Singles ($4.99) and Potion Princesses ($14.99). The few sets that were already announced and not found could be available at other Target stores, or perhaps release at a later moment.

Second 12-Pack of G4.5 Blind Bags Found at Target
After the original announcement and availability at Amazon people spotted a second 12-figure box at Walmart, which we named Batch 1A quickly after. Instead of waiting for the second set to release at a later point we got a surprise update today: the second half of the set, Batch 1B, has just been released at Target!
Aside from the split of characters there are no other changes to the series. Even the codes on the packaging are exactly the same over all sets. More on that below.
This second half of the first batch (previously called waves) features Princess Celestia, Twilight Sparkle, Winona (black), Tank (blue), Angel, Gummy, Opalescence (black), a hippo and 4 unnamed unicorns.
Thanks to Victor & Samantha for the info and photos!
