Sweetie Belle Finally Available as Magazine Figure
If you browse through the list of ponies that have been included as freebie figures in the European magazines, there's one returning character that we're still missing: Sweetie Belle. Well, until now, because Egmont has finally released her as a magazine figure with this month's magazine. Do note that it took 5 years before the complete CMC was released, as Scootaloo originates from 2014!
Her design looks spot-on, with the added cutie mark, flowing tail and she even gets a glittery mane to make this release a extra special.
During this month she will start to appear in magazines in Europe (where magazine figures are released), but we don't have exact releases dates on new issues per country.
Thanks to Kira for the photos and Tomo for the heads-up!

First Cutie Mark Crew Series 4 Figures Found
This week we were tagged on our Instagram page with a very interesting find: a Cutie Mark Crew Lily Valley figure from a series 4 blind packs! We didn't hear about these being found anywhere else yet, and it appears that this one came from Amazon. While we can't confirm it yet, it's possible that this blind pack originates from the listing that combined the title & description from series 4 with the photos of series 3.
The collection of series 4 blind packs includes both translucent and regular figures of ponies, seaponies and Equestria Girls in the confetti-filled packaging that was introduced in series 3. Included are:
  • Equestria Girls Fluttershy, Twilight Sparkle, Seapony Silverstream, Rainbow Dash
  • Sandbar, Pinkie Pie, Sea Swirl, Lily Valley
  • Equestria Girls Rainbow Dash, Seapony Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Equestria Girls Pinkie Pie
  • Lyra, Equestria Girls Twilight Sparkle, Depry/Muffins, Seapony Twilight Sparkle
  • Fluttershy, Seapony Applejack, Rarity, Spike
  • Equestria Girls Rarity, Seapony Fluttershy, Lotus Blossom, Seapony Pinkie Pie
Thanks to equestria_toys_movies for the photos!
UPDATE: The series 4 blind pack was bought from this listing on Amazon.co.uk, which also features series 3 photos.

Big Surprise: Hasbro Releases New Wave of Blind Bags
A big surprise this week from Hasbro with the release of a new wave of blind bags! Last year we thought it was game over for the classic blind bag waves with the continuous release of Cutie Mark Crew figures, but this turns out the be just a pause.
This week an images was shared on Instagram showing two well-known blind bag ponies with new cards attached. As far as we can tell the ponies in this wave are all re-releases from earlier transparent lines, like Wave 14, 16 and 17, with one exception: Rainbow Smile. A trademarked name we couldn't find a reference to anywhere else, and judging by the name, color and pose it could be a new name for Rainbowshine.
All figures come with a fully transparent body, no painted mane/tail and no added glitter. Though, there seems to be some color variations from the earlier releases, and we spot usage of the new eye designs from later waves.
The figures were found in Mexico, and we didn't see them at the NY Toy Fair this year or last year. This raises the question whether the new wave (technically #25 if we exclude Best Gift Ever) is a worldwide release, or of this wave will only see specific countries. Still, if that latter is the case, they could still end up in discount stores like the budget EqG dolls.

My Little Pony Children Phones Released in China
Nowadays it's getting more and more common to see children walk around with a smartphone. But there's still an age range that's usually not so easily trusted with the latest $999 model. There are still feature phones that are cheaper and have less functions, but there's a tiny niche for children-targeted phones too. In that last category we can now welcome official My Little Pony phones, released in China by The Ore Mouse.

Series 3 Cutie Mark Crew Now at Meijer & Amazon
Great news for fans of Cutie Mark Crew: the series 3 blind packs have been spotted at Meijer, AND the Amazon listing now has a limited stock available!
To start, the box seen in the photos was found in Chicago at Meijer, and were sold in the original 24-pack display box, which should still guarantee you a complete set. The boxes themselves don't have any codes to identify them, as far as we know. And as Meijer is not represented in every US state, you luckily can now also visit Amazon to buy them there. At the time of writing it's a very limited stock, but we're sure more packs will be added soon.

For a complete overview of the available figures in this 3rd series, be sure to visit our Cutie Mark Crew database and get ready to fill your wishlist and checklist!

Thanks to Victor for the photos!

JCPenney Releases Exclusive Friends & Foe Set With Queen Chrysalis
Exactly 10 months ago a mysterious Queen Chrysalis popped up on AliExpress, together with a brushable of Sandbar. While the latter has long been released, the changeling queen with updated eyes wasn't seen again. Until now, as JCPenney released their first My Little Pony exclusive, that includes the Queen Chrysalis figure!
She's combined with the complete mane 6, all with the same pose as the Reboot Series singles and School of Friendship Equestria Friends, being it without any accessories. Other than that the box itself is pretty basic, with the regular border and a green background. The back of the box shows an angry mane 6 and Queen Chrysalis. It retails for $29.99
While this release may not bring any new mold or characters to the shelves, it's good to see that JCPenney is also invested in releasing exclusive My Little Pony stuff, as Toys"R"Us is no longer able to release these lines in the US. I don't expect a large line of, let's say Ponymania, to come from JCPenney, but it's s slightly bigger chance at getting new releases nonetheless.
