MLP Magazine Figures Now Available in The Netherlands
Hasbro has given the license for official My Little Pony magazine publisher in The Netherlands to Big Balloon publishing, after the deal with Panini ended earlier this year.
The shift to Big Balloon means that the contents of the magazine will change and perhaps the biggest bonus of all: the famous MLP Magazine Figures will now also be released in The Netherlands, starting with Flurry Heart in the April issue.
According to Hasbro Benelux the magazine will be available at large bookstore chains like Bruna, AKO and Primera as well as several supermarkets.
At this moment we're only aware of a shift in licensee for The Netherlands, but other European countries might follow. Do note that this is another magazine release than the recently announced US magazine series.

MLP Merch Poll #118MLP Merch Poll #117 Results
Last week we asked you how many toy collections you own in total. And judging by the comments we should have made an extra option! While most of you have 3 to 5 collections, an overwhelming big group of 26% has over 10 separate toy collections! Only 19% sticks to just MLP and only a small group of 3% does not collect anything.

New My Little Pony Magazine Launched in the US
Last week someone on Facebook asked whether the US has any MLP Magazine. At that time I was not sure, but incidentally, as of this week a new My Little Pony magazine called "Magical Magazine" was lunched in the US. The overall MLP rebranding and upcoming movie seems to be the reason for this sudden magazine launch, so this line might only see a few releases.
The magazine is released by Topix Media and can at least be found at Walmart. It contains everything you might expect from an MLP magazine: puzzles, trivia, games and quizzes. Though, reading the index is does not look like this magazine contains any stories or comics, something other magazines commonly do contain. The "freebies" are two posters included with the magazine, so sadly no Magazine Figures for the US.
Below you can find some more photos from the magazine and the included My Little Pony The Movie announcement.
Thanks to Victor for the photos!

Wonderbolts Rainbow Dash Coming in April MLP Magazines
After the Baby Flurry Heart figure, who got very mixed responses from collectors, the next figure to be bundled with the MLP Magazine is a Rainbow Dash figure in Wonderbolts outfit. This is the first time Egmont decided to go with an alternative outfit for the included figure instead of a new character. Later this year they will get a bigger pool of popular characters with the release of My Little Pony The Movie, so hopefully we'll see some more characters towards that day.
The announcement seen above is for the German magazine, but usually other countries with the same magazine receive the figure around the same time.

Baby Flurry Heart Magazine Figure Released
Over in France the MLP Magazine is now bundled with a free Baby Flurry Heart figure. This was already announced back in December, but we now have some proper images of the actual figure!
The figure looks decent (especially since it's free), but according to the submitter Flurry Heart is a bit wobbly and it's hard to keep her from falling over (well it is still a foal, after all).
The next magazine figure in France will be Spike. Other European MLP Magazine might also receive the Baby Flurry Heart this month, but we've not heard of any other finds yet.

Talking about magazine figures, did you know that you can see all released magazine figures in our MLP Merch Database?

Thanks to Neptune for the info!

New UK MLP Magazine Comes With Erasers and New Look
Not only brushables, books and stores are adapting to the new My Little Pony branding, the official magazines too are shifting towards the new look. This brand new UK magazine even mentions "New Look" on the cover!
Aside of the usual content, this magazine is bundled with erasers of Rarity and Applejack. From the photos it looks like the bodies have been slightly altered to more look like the dynamic look of Reboot Series brushables. The faces look sub-par, but we got to give them credit for combining two 3D ponies with the magazine at all.
Next up for the UK magazine will be princess keyrings, but it's unclear if you will receive one or all three with the purchase of your magazine.
Thanks to Twitter Shy for the info!

Spike Magazine Figure Now Available in Europe
We're a bit late with the post (I'll blame the holidays for this one!), but we did want to get the info out any way: The free Spike figure is now available in European MLP magazines, so be sure to pick it up before the month is over!
Spike is the latest installment of Egmont's freebie magazine figure line, praised for their quality and show-accurateness. In 2017 the line will continue and start with a Baby Flurry Heart figure in February.
You can get the My Little Pony magazines in the UK, France, Russia, Poland, Romania and various other European countries.
Thanks to Pirill for the photos!

Baby Flurry Heart Magazine Figure Coming February 2017
The MLP magazines will continue to release pony figures by Egmont as freebies in 2017. One of the last magazines included erasers instead of a figure, but this was just a side step for the magazine. In February the French magazine will debut with a Baby Flurry Heart figure.
As usual the figures are very close to their show-counterparts, and this is the same with Baby Flurry Heart: the figures Hasbro released are in no way as accurate as the one Egmont has created here.
Fans of the figures, magazine or Baby Flurry Heart can pick up the magazine in February (note that not every country sells the magazines with figures).
Thanks to Neptune for the info!

New UK MLP Magazine Bundled With Pet Erasers
This month's MLP magazine in the UK is not bundled with any pony figures, but they made up for it big time by including 3 amazing erasers based on pets! The erasers of Gummy, Owlowiscious and Angel are spot-on with their show counterparts, even after a transformation to 3D, and include multiple colors.
Hopefully they will keep on releasing both the figures and the erasers, as for freebies with a magazine these releases are not bad at all!
Thanks to Victor for the images!
