My Little Pony: Pony Life Series Coming 2020 - Product Line Officially Announced
After a teaser campaign on Instagram the news is now officially out: My Little Pony will return to Discovery Family in 2020 with a brand new animated series called Pony Life.
The new TV-series will feature new chibi-style animations, done by Hasbro's own Allspark Animation, and the mane 6 and their voice actors from Friendship is Magic will return for this series.
The show will center around Sugarcube Corner, Pinkie Pie and mysterious potions in a Slice of Life setting. Aside from the main TV-show the My Little Pony YouTube channel will continue to release exclusive shorts.

More big news on Amazon today, as the single ponies for next year are all out in the open! The line of 6 ponies is part of the Reveal the Magic line, of which we already saw some other releases last week.
The 6 ponies that are part of this set aren't just the mane 6. While we do see Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle, there will be no Rarity and Rainbow Dash in this first set of these singles. They are accompanied by Trixie and a new character Potion Nova.
With the new character and product descriptions we're still not certain on what this line will be based on: a stand-alone toy line, G4.5, toys based on the upcoming movie, or possibly the first step towards G5?

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 Fluttershy Potion Dress-Up

UPDATE: Rarity has also been found! A very interesting find for this morning! Amazon Canada has listed two new figures of Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy. (although the Pinkie Pie images got listed under a Rarity listing) But as you can see things look very... different.

We normally don't post anything related to Magic The Gathering, but when Hasbro starts a collaboration with My Little Pony we're happy to jump in!
Hasbro just sent out a news statement that the Ponies: The Galloping Trading Card Set will be available tomorrow, as well as an exclusive set of Ultra PRO playmats. Both to celebrate the final episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and to raise money for charity.

Better Look at Kotobukiya Rainbow Dash From NYCCBetter Look at Kotobukiya Rainbow Dash From NYCC
Even though the ink is still wet on our announcement post of the Rainbow Dash bishoujo statue from Kotobukiya we can share more info on her with you! As promised Kotobukiya showed the prototype statue at the New York Comic Con, and thanks to a Diana we can now have a look at the display they had over there.

Kotobukiya Shows Finalized Rarity + Rainbow Dash Prototype DesignsKotobukiya Shows Finalized Rarity + Rainbow Dash Prototype Designs
A small 3 months after the previous announcement from Kotobukiya we can happily say that the Rarity Bishoujo statue design has received it's layer of colors and was finalized. Matching her pony-form color schema, the humanized Rarity figure features a white shirt with purple skirt and belt and long wavy locks. She also rocks a gold bracelet and large necklace, together with a hair clip representing her cutie mark. The pony that accompanies the human statue is a well-designed 3D presentation of Rarity, being it with very heavy eyelashes. More images of both can be seen later in the post.
Just like the statues before, this stage of the development process also means that pre-orders are now available. So far we were only able to find a pre-order listing on the Kotobukiya site itself, but expect sites that usually offer statues like this to follow soon.

G3 Retro Ponies Now Available at Target
Fans of the 3rd My Little Pony generation were probably very happy to hear that Basic Fun would extend their My Little Pony classic collection from G1 to G3. Now we have the confirmation that the figures were found in several Target stores and that they're available in their online store (links below). Right now the set is limited to 4 of the mane 6 ponies, being Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash, all in their original G3 design.
The ponies come in a box with the same shape as the G1 retro ponies, being it with a design that looks more like the actual G3 packaging. Each pony comes with a comb and is being sold at the MSRP of $9.99 (and not at $8.49, which was originally listed online).

Thanks to Beth and TwilySparks for the images!

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!
