Even though the ink is still wet on our announcement post of the Rainbow Dash bishoujo statue from Kotobukiya we can share more info on her with you! As promised Kotobukiya showed the prototype statue at the New York Comic Con, and thanks to a Diana we can now have a look at the display they had over there.

Kotobukiya Shows Finalized Rarity + Rainbow Dash Prototype DesignsKotobukiya Shows Finalized Rarity + Rainbow Dash Prototype Designs
A small 3 months after the previous announcement from Kotobukiya we can happily say that the Rarity Bishoujo statue design has received it's layer of colors and was finalized. Matching her pony-form color schema, the humanized Rarity figure features a white shirt with purple skirt and belt and long wavy locks. She also rocks a gold bracelet and large necklace, together with a hair clip representing her cutie mark. The pony that accompanies the human statue is a well-designed 3D presentation of Rarity, being it with very heavy eyelashes. More images of both can be seen later in the post.
Just like the statues before, this stage of the development process also means that pre-orders are now available. So far we were only able to find a pre-order listing on the Kotobukiya site itself, but expect sites that usually offer statues like this to follow soon.

Kotobukiya News: Rarity Prototype and Fluttershy Pre-OrdersKotobukiya News: Rarity Prototype and Fluttershy Pre-Orders
We've got two great reports from Kotobukiya for you today: Both the prototype of the Rarity bishoujo statue and the final colored design of the Fluttershy statue (including pre-orders) too! News on the figures came in through Twitter and their official blog, and is just in time for the start of the SDCC today.

This is the first time we get to see a prototype version of the Rarity bishoujo statue, currently still in its unpainted state. The human statue has a very posh pose and outfit, combined with curly locks similar to her pony-equivalent and a seductive face. Rarity as a pony lays on the floor and comes with a greatly detailed mane and even sculpted eyelashes.

Of Fluttershy, who is the 3rd statue in the series, we now get to see the final colored design of her showing the bright hair color and contrasting details on her dress. Pony Fluttershy got some beautiful shaded wings, combined with show-accurate colors and details. The Fluttershy statue is now available for pre-order too, and has an expected release date of December 2019.

My Little Pony NY Toy Fair 2019 Wrap-Up
It's February, and that means New York Toy Fair time! Although, this year is quite different from earlier installments (2018, 2017, 2016, 2015 & 2014) as it's accompanied by the official statement from Hasbro that the upcoming 9th season of Friendship is Magic will be the final one for the generation. Everything points towards an upcoming 5th generation afterwards, but you'll find no hint of that on the fair this year. Instead it's a line-up that pretty much covers everything that has been announced in the past few weeks, including the recent waves of Cutie Mark Crew and brushables that were released in late 2018.
Though, we do see some new sets on display at the fair this year, with the 2019 series called "Rainbow Road Trip" which ties in with an upcoming special. And there's some amazing news from other companies too, including Kidrobot, who are releasing their first My Little Pony figures this year!

Kotobukiya Twilight Sparkle Bishoujo Statue Pre-Orders Now Available
Earlier this week we reported on the final design of Kotobukiya's Twilight Sparkle Bishoujo statue, and now the pre-orders for her are open! With $99.99 as the MSRP it's an expensive piece, but as seen on the images below you get an immensely detailed statue in return. Both the 8.46" tall human character as well as the Twilight Sparkle pony are uniquely designed and molded with eye for detail. Take a look at the Elements of Harmony book for example!

My Little Pony Kotobukiya Twilight Sparkle Bishoujo Statue
With the Pinkie Pie Bishoujo Statue being fully revealed and up for pre-order, it was only a matter of time before Kotobukiya would be teasing their next statue: Twilight Sparkle. We already got a look at the concept art for this statue but now Kotobukiya has posted the sculpt on their Facebook Page. Just like Pinkie Pie this figure is very detailed and the sculpt looks absolutely amazing. I bet she will look stunning when the colors are added!

Kotobukiya Pinkie Pie Bishoujo Statue Now Available For Pre-Order
After a long series of teasers Kotobukiya finally made the Pinkie Pie bishoujo statue available for pre-order today. Not only that, but the new listings contain additional photos of the figure and the "final product may vary" notice has been dropped. We couldn't spot any major changes so soon, but this is the first time the figure could be seen in such detail! You'll find these photos further down this post.
International customers will be able to pre-order a statue through Entertainment Earth, where it's listed for $99.99. The release date in the US is set for late June / early July 2019, so we'd have to keep our patience for a few more months!

My Little Pony Pinkie Pie Bishoujo Statue by Kotobukiya
About three month ago Kotobukiya revealed the first My Little Pony Bishoujo Statue. While unpainted the statue was already impressive to look at with some amazing details. But now Kotobukiya has revealed the fully colored Pinkie Pie Statue on their Facebook! We can clearly see that this piece is one lively-colored piece of sweetness. I particularly like the balloon-base as well. They really pay attention to detail.

My Little Pony at the 2018 SDCC
Today we have a special guest report from Anto, who was kind enough to shoot photos at this year's San Diego Comic Con of everything My Little Pony that was on display across the convention floor.
Hasbro had a relatively large booth this year with lots of items that are going to be release this year, including Cutie Mark Crew, Ultimate Equestria Collection and Best Gift Ever sets.
And of course we get to take a peek at an actual prototype of the Pinkie Pie Bishoujo statue can be seen.
