First Twilight Sparkle & Princess Skystar Set Found in Stores
Right after the store finds post from yesterday we heard that the first MLP The Movie-exclusive character has hit the store shelves: The two-pack with Princess Twilight Sparkle and Princess Skystar has been spotted in a Target store in the US.
We didn't hear of a definitive release date for the MLP The Movie sets, but this release might be earlier than Hasbro intended, so don't expect your local Target to carry these just yet. As a side note, the Amazon listing is still unavailable as we write this.

MLP The Movie Book Update: 8 New Book Covers
The fact that MLP The Movie is going to be big is not only visible in the amount of promotional videos and official toys that's being release by the dozens, but in the book department there is a huge rise in MLP The Movie-themed books as well! Today we have a collection of 8 more books that are either brand new or have received a cover recently. We have one exception in this list, and that's the "Ultimate My Little Pony Guide". While it's not movie-themed we expect it to have quite some content around the movie, as it's release around the same date as the other books.
As you expect from us we include all information at hand, including summaries, pre-order prices and cover art.
(Disclaimer: Summary and title information might include spoilers for the movie!)

MLP Merch Poll #128MLP Merch Poll #127 Results
Last week we asked for your first reaction to the My Magical Princess Twilight Sparkle figure, and as we slightly expected already "Scary" won! The re-design of the FurReal Friends StarLily does not look as nice and friendly to most people as Hasbro might have hoped. Actually, the only noteworthy response was Scare, as the others are pretty evenly divided around 10-12% of the votes. The least voted option, aside from "other", was Boring.

Two New MLP The Movie Books Coming in August
We've already seen plenty of announcements for My Little Pony: The Movie-themed books, but Amazon just liked two more, including images!
The first book is a replica journal, like the earlier Equestria Girls Tell-All, this time from the eyes of Pinkie Pie in the MLP: The Movie universe. Besides the Mane 6 we also see Tempest Shadow on the cover, so she'll likely play an important role in this book.
The other book also features Tempest Shadow on the cover, together with Twilight Sparkle. This book is named "The prequel to My Little Pony The Movie", and is probably suitable to read before watching the movie, hence the release date of August 1st.
Below we have all information available regarding the two books, including links for pre-orders on Amazon:

My Little Pony the Movie All About DJ Pon-3 and Pinkie Pie Brusables
They are perhaps one of the most anticipated singles today as during the Toy Fair we saw that this set will contain some interesting characters like Soarin' and Big Macintosh, but other fan favorites like Starlight Glimmer, Sweetie Drops and DJ Pon-3 will also join this line. The concept of these brushables is quite interesting as they contain the face of the character and a background that's familiar to them. These make up for quite some lively designs. For those who don't like the design that much, they are just like regular brushables on the other side including a normal cutie mark.

MLP Canterlot Castle Friendship is Magic Collection Playset
Earlier this year, when information of loads of upcoming sets was released, we first heard about a particular interesting set: Canterlot Castle as part of the Friendship is Magic Collection.
Today we have exclusive news with the first images of this upcoming set, including the Princess Celestia and Storm King figures! The princess is released with the same mold as Princess Luna and partly translucent mane and tiara, and the Storm King comes with his full attire and staff, as earlier seen in announcements of MLP The Movie.
Of course the biggest part of this set is the castle itself, which is very detailed and comes with various accessories. Among these accessories are Philomena, a cake, throne and chest with books.

The box also contains some promo images from other sets for this line. Like the set with Grubber and Tempest Shadow, but also a set containing all the Cutie Mark Crusaders.

Twilight & Spike Friendship Duet Stock Images Released
We finally get to see the Twilight Sparkle & Spike Friendship Duet set in more details with the release of promotional stock images for the set, which is going to be released around the summer.
Twilight Sparkle is going to get translucent wings with glitter, her cutie mark will activate the singing and her mane will be quite curly. Aside from a new design Spike will be pretty simple, as usual.
A single AAA battery is required for the figures to work, Spike probably just containing a NFC-chip to activate the duet.
(And do note the official set name on the box... it's just way too long, and that listed in 4 languages!)

MLP Merch Poll #126MLP Merch Poll #125 Results Last week we asked you which of the then announced Fashion Style ponies you're planning on getting first. As it turns our you're all waiting for a new Fluttershy fashion pony as she got 33% of all the votes. It's almost a tie between Applejack and Rarity, but the actual fashion queen just won that by 2 votes. And the final 25% are not going to get any of them.

A big announcement from Funko is just in: They're going to expand their line of POP! figures around the release of MLP The Movie with at least 4 figures. Seapony versions of Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle are set for a release around September-October this year.
Images are not yet available, but we'll be on the lookout for those in the coming weeks. Below we have some Canadian pre-order listings where they were first found, but expect Amazon or Entertainment Earth listings to follow soon.
Thanks to Tomo for the info!
