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.
Thanks to Nora4 for the image!
The New York Toy Fair has officially started and here's the first picture of it. We can see that they have the new Seaquestria Playset displayed but alongside them are also a lot, and a mean a lot of new Brushables shown.
And we got the first piece of official Movie Merchandise revealed! Her character was already revealed some days ago but now we'll also see her as a piece of merchandise. The sculpt on her looks amazing. It's at the moment unsure under which line she will fall. Will she be part of the Guardians of Harmony series? Or will the Movie Merchandise all be under their own category? (This is also interesting for database purposes)
Except more movie/merchandise news this weekend when the New York Toy Fair starts!
Back in January we saw a magazine advert for the upcoming Rarity Friendship is Magic Collection Small Story Pack sets and a week later we got many high quality images of the other Rarity FiM Collection sets, but we were left without promo images of the earlier shown small packs.
But now, on the Icelandic Toys"R"Us website of all places, we finally get the images we were missing.
Below we have all images of the sets:
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?
Quite an unexpected finding here as Target has listed two brand new Guardians of Harmony figures? Applejack and Daring Do! It actually isn't that much of a surprise that Applejack would get an Guardians of Harmony release since someone already saw hints for that one on a Planogram.
It took some time since at first because only the Rarity Carousel Boutique has been spotted. But now we've gathered enough info and because of that we now know the full line-up for the Rarity Friendship is Magic Collection.
The 180th issue of ToyNews has published as a small article about the upcoming MLP K'NEX themed sets including an impression of one of one of them. It looks very K'NEX like and quite basic but that's K'NEX for you as it's more about building and constructing things. It can be especially interesting with the other sets that are coming soon. I bet you can make some awesome things if you combine all the sets.
So almost a year ago we spotted a listing on Amazon about a possible DJ Pon-3 Fan Series figure. But as you can see this has now indeed be confirmed as the listing has received images. This set comes with DJ Pon-3 and her turntable which emits some nice translucent music swirls. So far the listing didn't state any other info or a release date. But we'll keep you updated on that. We probably hear more during the Toy Fair this year. You can find the listing here: DJ Pon-3 Guardians of Harmony Fan Series Figure
Another year a new My Little Pony-Themed Happy Meal isn't it? 2016 isn't even over yet and here we already have the MLP Toys for 2017, well... for New Zealand that is. At the moment they have toys after the new "Sing" movie but next month it's pony time
