My Little Pony: Pony Life Series Coming 2020 - Product Line Officially Announced
After a teaser campaign on Instagram the news is now officially out: My Little Pony will return to Discovery Family in 2020 with a brand new animated series called Pony Life.
The new TV-series will feature new chibi-style animations, done by Hasbro's own Allspark Animation, and the mane 6 and their voice actors from Friendship is Magic will return for this series.
The show will center around Sugarcube Corner, Pinkie Pie and mysterious potions in a Slice of Life setting. Aside from the main TV-show the My Little Pony YouTube channel will continue to release exclusive shorts.

More big news on Amazon today, as the single ponies for next year are all out in the open! The line of 6 ponies is part of the Reveal the Magic line, of which we already saw some other releases last week.
The 6 ponies that are part of this set aren't just the mane 6. While we do see Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle, there will be no Rarity and Rainbow Dash in this first set of these singles. They are accompanied by Trixie and a new character Potion Nova.
With the new character and product descriptions we're still not certain on what this line will be based on: a stand-alone toy line, G4.5, toys based on the upcoming movie, or possibly the first step towards G5?

Hasbro Shows Cutie Mark Crew Series 6 Figures
Hasbro is on a roll with Cutie Mark Crew announcements and releases this month! After the listing for series 5 blind packs and two multi-packs we're already seeing official information and photos on the 6th series of blind packs on the My Little Pony website. This brand new series will feature similar gradient finishes as the 5th series and all ponies come with fashion-themed accessories like skirts, shoes, hats and pearl necklaces.
No details on the in-store release has been given so far, but seeing as this info is already up on Hasbro's own sites, we expect this set to be available not too far in the 3rd quarter of this year. Possible only weeks after the first findings of the 5th series.

My LIttle Pony Cutie Mark Crew Series 5 - Makeup ThemedMy LIttle Pony Cutie Mark Crew Series 5 - Makeup Themed
While the series 4 Cutie Mark Crew have started to become available on most continents now, over on a Ukrainian website the first images of the 5th series has been spotted! As we saw on the NY Toy Fair the base idea will remain the same as the current line we saw with series 3 and 4, namely the confetti-filled balloons with a single pony and accessory inside. This time around the ponies have a gradient design, and come with makeup/beauty-themed items. Overall we get to see a lot more mane 6 variants, but some other characters make a return in this set and we get the first release of Sweetie Belle and Zecora (in a rainbowfied form?). The accessories for the ponies are all duplicated once in a different color.

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.

Rainbow Road Trip Collection Blind Bag Set Found Online
Over on the Chinese online marketplace Taobao, and associated sites, a new "blind bag" collection set has been spotted: the Rainbow Road Trip Collection. This set is, as the name already reveals, part of the Rainbow Road Trip series and features the complete mane 6, the 3 princesses and Gummy!

While the figures are presented in their usual body style, the variants these come in are, almost, all new. The mini figures have a colored translucent body with large glitter flakes and painted manes and tails. Princess Twilight Sparkle comes with a pretty unique rainbow-colored wing finish too.
In addition to the ponies, we also get the first translucent Gummy, which shares his body mold with that of an earlier FiM Collection release.

Seeing as the collection is published on the marketplace including the full packaging we can assume that it won't take long before we're seeing these in stores. Price-wise the listings all translate to about $35, which seems logical for these sets as they're usually offered around the $30 mark at release.

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.

MLP My Baby Pinkie Pie & Twilight Sparkle Revealed
Earlier this week we added the My Baby Twilight Sparkle to our database, but as we only had a single packaging photo we did want to wait a little longer for the full reveal was there. And that moment is now as Detmir released images of both the Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle figures in and out of their packaging.

If we jump back a few months in time, back to the NY Toy Fair, you might remember that we saw some big-headed figures during the sneak-peak video by Hasbro, but after the official opening of the stand they were nowhere to be found.
