McDonald's Re-Releases 1998 Happy Meal G2 Pony
Whereas Basic Fun skipped the second generation of My Little Pony in their retro line of ponies (so far), we got surprise news from McDonald's this week that they are filling in that gap! As part of their 40 years anniversary of the Happy Meal they are re-releasing 17 classic toys from Happy Meals throughout the ages. One of which is the G2 Light Heart pony that was originally released in 1998.

Regarding the colors and details this pony is exactly like its 21-year-old original, including the brushable tail. The only difference is the hollow legs which have been added on this re-release.

If you'd like to add this pony to your collection you should be quick: these toys are subject to availability and are only included in Happy Meals between today (Nov 7th) and next Monday (Nov 11th). McDonald's location in at least the US and The Netherlands will offer this line of toys, it's unsure which other countries include this promotion as well.
Update: The happy meal figures are packaged as blind bags, and according to multiple confirmations #12 is the Light Heart pony. (Thanks mylittleponyukcollector)

Thanks to Alex for the heads-up!

My Little Pony Happy Meal in More Countries + New Figures
We're back from our holiday and are back to share the latest MLP news with all of you! On our way back we were able to pick up Rainbow Dash from the My Little Pony Happy Meal 2019 line, and no, we didn't go through Switzerland. Here in The Netherlands McDonald's launched the same line of Happy Meal figures, which includes unique versions of Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Rarity and Twilight Sparkle.
But there is more news, as the line is also available in Argentina, Brazil and Mexico. However, in those countries the set does not only contain the ponies mentioned above, but features new figures of Starlight Glimmer and Spike as well! Pictures of both are shown below.
More countries could potentially receive this set in the future, as we've seen delays of months between countries in the past, but we don't have any definitive information on that.

If you can't wait for them to become available in your country: the first listings for these figures are now available on eBay.

Thanks to Sil for the heads-up!

New My Little Pony Happy Meal Figures at McDonalds Switzerland
Looks like Burger King isn't the only one including My Little Pony figures in their kids meals. Apparently McDonalds Switzerland is now also including ponies and Transformers in their Happy Meals, all of the Mane Six to be exact. They even have a timetable available on their website which shows which pony you can get in each week, but we also decided to post it below as well.

Cutie Mark Crew Happy Meal Toys Confirmed For US
The release of the Cutie Mark Crew Happy Meal figures at McDonalds's restaurants across Europe and parts of Asia raised a lot of questions in the US whether the figures would be released on their continent as well. After a short wait we can finally confirm that both Cutie Mark Crew and Transformers Happy Meal toys are coming up as the next series in the US! This next toy refresh is most likely planned for September 17-18.
More countries, like Canada, Mexico and Australia, also missed out on the initial release, but we have yet to receive an official announcement for those locations.
In the mean time Argentina already confirmed availability of the Cutie Mark Crew figures at their restaurants, and even included a clip that demonstrates what figures are available and how they work.

MLP Merch Poll #178MLP Merch Poll #177 Results
Two week ago we asked you whether the limited articulation that's available on the upcoming Friendship Power Equestria Girls dolls is a deal breaker for you. Aside from the 36% that doesn't collect Equestria Girls we're seeing a very large group (30%) that will skip this set due to the articulation. Still, a total of 34% of the respondents is planning on buying the dolls, though 20% of those would prefer to see more articulation on future releases.

Below we've listed all countries from which we know the figures are available, including their release schedule (if known).
Not available in your country? You can always check eBay for online availability!

Store Finds: Cutie Mark Crew, Lots of Equestria Girls & More
With the relatively low amount of new stuff hitting the stores (this week being an exception, though) I'm getting the feeling that one store finds post each fortnight is just right. Hopefully we'll see more exciting large releases soon, though! In the mean time, enjoy more findings of Cutie Mark Crew figures, various Equestria Girls sets and some other stuff.
If you happen to find brand new stuff in your local store, then feel free to write us a small message with photos.

Two weeks ago (yes we skipped a week due to our holiday) we asked you which Cutie Mark Crusaders member was your favorite from the newly found School of Friendship set. The results are pretty close, but the winner was Sweetie Belle! She is closely followed by Apple Bloom and Scootaloo ended up in last place, but it's all very close.

Better Images of Cutie Mark Crew Happy Meal Toys Available

Just this week we got the official confirmation of all characters that will be featured in the 2018 MLP Happy Meal line at McDonalds and today we're able to share much better images of all figures with you!
Aside from more detail, we can now confirm what each ponies' gimmick will be: Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Rarity have brushable hair and will come with a comb, Twilight Sparkle has a light-up horn, Starlight Glimmer can move her front legs, Rainbow Dash has moving wings and Spike (while looking a bit creepy) has moving eyes.
Right now South Korea, Italy, Austria and Russia have been confirmed to receive this line from the 25th of May. Some other countries, including the United States, are seeing games of Hasbro Gaming as the next Happy Meal line, meaning that the My Little Pony line will not be released there in May. This does not mean that the line will skip these countries, they can still be released at a later moment.
Thanks to Tomo for the images!
