Basic Fun Shows New G1 Retro Ponies at London Toy Fair
What started in 2018 as the 35th Anniversary series of retro G1 ponies continues for a 3rd year here in 2020! Over in London at the annual Toy Fair, Basic Fun has shown what new ponies we can expect soon. Shown are Cherries Jubilee, Gusty, Heart Throb, Lickety-Split, Posey, Sparkle and Tootsie.
All originate from the year 3 Earth, Pegasus and Unicorn sets, and features almost the complete line. When comparing those sets and what has been on display the Toy Fair, we're only missing Surprise, Powder and Skyflier. Whether any of these will be included in the wave is yet to be confirmed.
All earth ponies come with a brush, ribbon and mini-post and the ponies in the unicorn & pegasus set receive a comb, ribbon and puffy sticker.
A release date is not yet given, but we expect these to pop up at Target around the end of Q1.
Thanks to Wigwam Toys for the photos!

Fashion Squad Minty Found Ahead of Release
Soon we'll get to see a second wave of the G4.5 Fashion Squad Equestria Girls figures, and one of those will be a set with Pinkie Pie and... Minty! It will be her first release in the Fashion Squad line, and actually her first release in the Equestria Girls line at all. Who knew that a pony that has been popular since Generation 1 could see so little releases in G4!

First Series of G4.5 Ponies Found at Target
Together with the release of the brand new blind bags set Target also added the first series of Generation 4.5 ponies and figures on the shelves, or at least, most of it. What has been spotted so far are the Potion Ponies ($4.99), Magical Mane Rarity ($21.49), Fashion Squad Singles ($4.99) and Potion Princesses ($14.99). The few sets that were already announced and not found could be available at other Target stores, or perhaps release at a later moment.

Second 12-Pack of G4.5 Blind Bags Found at Target
After the original announcement and availability at Amazon people spotted a second 12-figure box at Walmart, which we named Batch 1A quickly after. Instead of waiting for the second set to release at a later point we got a surprise update today: the second half of the set, Batch 1B, has just been released at Target!
Aside from the split of characters there are no other changes to the series. Even the codes on the packaging are exactly the same over all sets. More on that below.
This second half of the first batch (previously called waves) features Princess Celestia, Twilight Sparkle, Winona (black), Tank (blue), Angel, Gummy, Opalescence (black), a hippo and 4 unnamed unicorns.
Thanks to Victor & Samantha for the info and photos!

12-Pack of G4.5 Blind Bags Already at Walmart
Earlier this week we found the first image of the brand new G4.5 blind bags set online, and just before the new year Walmart already released them in stores! (And Amazon now, too)
There's only one odd thing here: the set that was found on the shelves is a 12-pack, whereas the US normally gets a full 24-pack, just like the images we found earlier. Not only that, but the packaging only features English and French text, not Spanish as US releases usually have.
These 12-pack releases with two languages is commonly released in the UK, so it is possible that this set that hit the stores is a mix-up.
The figures included are the first set we posted in our previous post containing Tank, Winona, (brown) Angel, Opalescence, Lyra, Amethyst Star, unknown green pony, Gummy, Potion Nova, Cha Cha, a hippopotamus and Rarity.
While the Cutie Mark Crew confetti is gone, these new blind bags do come with another (potentially even messier) way of opening them: water! You can flip open the potion bottles, pour in some water, and after shaking them for a while the dust should dissolve and the pony will be revealed. Just make sure you close the potion bottle tight before shaking! (See photo and video of this below)
Update: First wave of Magical Potion Surprise is now on Amazon for just $2.99 each. Listing mentions 24 figures in contrast to the split box found in stores.

Thanks to SLPhotos for the photos & videos!

Disclaimer: More info will be added later.

The first blind Bags for G4.5 have been found. And its very interesting as we see more characters, more styles and even more species! So far not else is known aside from lots of pictures! Hippo's, Cha Cha the Llama? Balloon ponies? So much interesting figures are included!

We also get a look at the art style for this generation. It looks really fresh and shiny compared to G4.

Thanks to Alyssa for the heads up!
