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.

My Little Pony and Transformer Figures Now at Burger King
After a very long pause Burger King once again features My Little Pony and Transformer toys in their King Jr meals! Four brand new figures of both brands are available, but of course we'll focus on the My Little Pony figures here.
Featured are Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle and Rarity, who all have a different mold or feature: Pinkie Pie laughs, Rainbow Dash can roll forward, Twilight Sparkle has articulated wings and tail and Rarity comes with a removable cape.
The figures all come with molded manes and tails, but are not molded completely solid. As seen on the photos the legs are hollow.

From reports that we saw all 4 figures are available at the moment within the US and Canada, but it differs from store to store which are included with the meals at that time. We've also heard of restaurants that did not offer any MLP figures yet, even after the official launch date. Information on releases in other countries are not yet known.

Thanks to Archooves, Victor, Jessie and Alex for the info!

My Baby Mane 6 Set Now Available at Walmart
So while this technically could fit in a store finds post, we noticed that we didn't write an announcement post about this set yet! While it is present in our database, we thought it would be fitting to make a dedicated post for this release.

Target Lists Four G3 Retro Classic Ponies
The 3rd generation of My Little Pony started back in 2003, and when you think about it, that's already 16 years ago! Whether this falls in the 'retro' category is up to personal preference, but what is sure is that four G3 re-releases are planned for this fall! Under the 'Retro Classic' line Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash will be released in their original G3 form according to listings that popped up on the Target website.
All ponies each come with a comb are listed for $8.49 with an MSRP of $9.99. And while they are marked as 'sold out', we didn't get any confirmations that they were available just yet. That's why we expect them to be available somewhere in the coming weeks.

Below we have more photos of all the ponies, as well as the listings and some more background information on these figures.

My LIttle Pony Cutie Mark Crew Series 5 - Makeup ThemedMy LIttle Pony Cutie Mark Crew Series 5 - Makeup Themed
While the series 4 Cutie Mark Crew have started to become available on most continents now, over on a Ukrainian website the first images of the 5th series has been spotted! As we saw on the NY Toy Fair the base idea will remain the same as the current line we saw with series 3 and 4, namely the confetti-filled balloons with a single pony and accessory inside. This time around the ponies have a gradient design, and come with makeup/beauty-themed items. Overall we get to see a lot more mane 6 variants, but some other characters make a return in this set and we get the first release of Sweetie Belle and Zecora (in a rainbowfied form?). The accessories for the ponies are all duplicated once in a different color.

Hasbro Announces My Little Pony Retro Rainbow Mane 6
After the My Little Pony 35th Anniversary celebration from last year, Hasbro goes back in time again and announces a brand new set of retro ponies based on the modern mane 6!
The main cast from Friendship is Magic is shaped after ponies from older generation, though with a little twist. Fluttershy, Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash are molded after the classic G1 Firefly pose and Pinkie Pie, Rarity and Applejack are a mixture of G1 and G3 styles. Color-wise the ponies have not changed, but the cutie marks did: they increased in number and size, looking more like the G1 symbols than their current cutie marks.
All ponies come in a single box that is covered with retro-vibes, and even the logo from the first generation! We also received some crazy hi-res images of this set, of which we shared a little compilation below to show you the quality of detail of the figures and packaging.

The My Little Pony Retro Rainbow Mane 6 collection will be an Amazon exclusive and release on the first of September. Pre-orders are available for $24.99.

Together with this new set comes the premiere of My Little Pony: The Retro Show, a free weekly show where Hasbro looks back on the history of My Little Pony from the 80's and 90's.

And if you still have more thirst for retro My Little Pony, why not take a look at our own book My Little Pony Collectibles, where we take a look at the rich history of MLP throughout the generations!

Finally Official: Stranger Things x My Little Pony Applejack
Today is the start of the new Stranger Things season, and for this season Netflix has partnered up with Hasbro and Basic Fun to release this very special Stranger Things-themed Applejack. She is not looking like her regular self and comes with a white and blue color scheme, which includes her mane, tail and symbol/cutie mark. The latter of which is intentionally printed upside-down.
She comes in a monochrome box and is always packed wrong side up. On the back we see the usual style of the 35th Anniversary ponies, though it only showing Applejack. Within the box you not only get the pony, but a bow and hairbrush are included too. Everything in matching blue.
This special Applejack is currently only available in-store at Target, where you can pick her up for $9.99. Note that a handful of ponies are also available from 3rd part sellers on Amazon, though with a higher price tag.

Rainbow Road Trip Collection Blind Bag Set Found Online
Over on the Chinese online marketplace Taobao, and associated sites, a new "blind bag" collection set has been spotted: the Rainbow Road Trip Collection. This set is, as the name already reveals, part of the Rainbow Road Trip series and features the complete mane 6, the 3 princesses and Gummy!

While the figures are presented in their usual body style, the variants these come in are, almost, all new. The mini figures have a colored translucent body with large glitter flakes and painted manes and tails. Princess Twilight Sparkle comes with a pretty unique rainbow-colored wing finish too.
In addition to the ponies, we also get the first translucent Gummy, which shares his body mold with that of an earlier FiM Collection release.

Seeing as the collection is published on the marketplace including the full packaging we can assume that it won't take long before we're seeing these in stores. Price-wise the listings all translate to about $35, which seems logical for these sets as they're usually offered around the $30 mark at release.

Hasbro Reveals 2019 SDCC Exclusive Through The Years Twilight Sparkle
A few minutes ago Hasbro has officially shared images and information on this year's San Diego Comic Con exclusive figure, which is a throwback to the 35th Anniversary of My Little Pony! Twilight Sparkle is combined with her former self, Twilight, in this exclusive Through The Years 2-pack.
The G4 Twilight Sparkle combines an existing 3" body with new face and mane design (with bangs!), while the G1-based Twilight has a brand new pearlized design with the looks of the original pony from the 1980's.
Both come in a combined see-through package showing a design of Twilight on one side and Twilight Sparkle on the other side. Each side also shows the My Little Pony design from their respected era. The set will be available for $19.99 and debut at the San Diego Comic Con. Afterwards the figure will be available on the Hasbro Pulse website while stock lasts.
