Photos of New Fashion Squad Singles in Packaging Found
The first images of the upcoming Fashion Squad singles wave, the second one as part of the Reveal the Magic series, have been spotted online. This line will feature Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle with a full outfit, handbag, additional shirt and 4 accessories in the mystery potion.
We already knew about the existence of these through placeholder Amazon listings we've got in our database, but this is the first time we get to see photos of their actual release.

Rainbow Dash & Rarity Wave 2 Potion Singles Listed on Mexican Site
Aside from the licensed merch, we're starting to see activity from Hasbro again as well. On a Mexican toy website they secretly hid the two ponies among the images of wave 1. While it was expected that Rarity and Rainbow Dash would join the G4.5 / Reveal the Magic singles line, but with these images we get to see what accessories they come with!
Rarity will come with a light pink comb, a translucent hair band, a jewel hair clip and two hair hair elastics. Rainbow Dash gets a similar set of accessories, but with a white comb, cloud hair clip and a blue hair band with a bow.
There's also Amazon listings for Rarity & Rainbow Dash, but those are just placeholders for the time being, the images are not yet listed there. A release date is hard to say, as we're not sure on what delay the pandemic has caused with Hasbro and their factories, but we're guessing it will still be during the summer.
Thanks to Tomo for the heads-up!

My Little Pony Crossover Collection Morphin Pink Pony Power Rangers FigureMy Little Pony Crossover Collection My Little Prime Transformers Figure

And at last we finally have images for the upcoming MLP x Transformers and MLP x Power Rangers Crossover Collection figures! Just like the Plasmane figure these two consists of a single figure. The Morphin Pink Pony, which is obviously based-on the Pink Ranger from Power Rangers, and the My Little Prime figure whis is based on Optimus Prime. Just like the other figures from this collection the mold is based on G1, (although it also has some elements of G3 in it as well...)

Plasmane Ghostbuster x My Little Pony Crossover Collection Figure
Yesterday we saw the first set of the MLP Crossover Collection, being the Cutie Marks & Dragons Set. But Amazon UK has just listed the Ghostbusters one: Plasmane. In comparison to the DnD one this one only includes one pony in the classic Ghostbusters gear. The pony themself is based on G1, probably because most toylines part of the crossover collection were really popular in the 80s/90s. Also, she reminds me a lot of G3 Applejack. Must be the color-scheme...
It's currently listed on Amazon UK for £19.36 but currently out of stock. No release date is known atm as well. Have the listing and other info below! (Update: Amazon.com listing is also available, though not yet available for order)

The description also mentions there will also be a Power Rangers and Transformers set, like we posted about some days ago. But with the Dungeons and Dragons set from yesterday the question is if we'll perhaps see much more crossovers as well... Which crossover(s) do you want to see? I would love a JEM one to be honest.

My Little Pony Dungeons & Dragons MLP Crossover Collection
Some very interesting news! Some days ago we posted about a line were MLP would crossover with several of Hasbro's other brands. But to our surprise it turns out that Dungeons & Dragons will be also included as an UK Toy Seller named In Demand Toys has posted stock images of a Dungeons & Dragons themed set.

My Little Pony x Ghostbusters, Transformers & Power Ranger Crossovers Coming
The news is coming at great speed again, and today we have some very exciting news! Hasbro is known for occasionally bundling brands or licenses together and release My Little Pony themed board games from time to time. But now, they're going a step further than that.
For their Transformers brand and the recently acquired Ghostbusters & Power Rangers licenses, we're going to see an official Crossover Collection this year!

A listing for this got briefly posted on Amazon UK, but has now been removed or hidden. Luckily a Swedish crwaler site picked up the full description (seen below), and thanks to that we've got the details on what will be part of this collection.
For this line, or first wave, we'll see at least 3 figures:
  • My Little Pony X Ghostbusters Crossover Collection Plasmane
  • My Little Pony X Transformers Crossover Collection My Little Prime
  • My Little Pony X Power Rangers Crossover Collection Morphin Pink Pony

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.

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!
