Fluttershy & Angel Magazine Figures Bundled With April Issue
The series of magazine figures by Egmont keeps on going, and the April issue of 2020 will contain a new Fluttershy figure with Angel in a basket! Well, sort of Angel, as there is a 50/50 chance you're getting a pink rabbit instead of white. On the cover art of the packaging she's clearly holding Angel, so we'll be calling her that :)
The figure has already been spotted with Russian magazines, but expect this Easter-themed set of figures to be bundled with more releases around Europe in the next week or two.
If you're interested in what all the other magazine figures look like, then you might be interested in the Egmont section of our Other Figures Database!

Store Finds: Reveal the Magic, Dollar Tree, Mini Bows & More
It's been a while since our latest store finds post! Big reason behind this is the lower amount of merch in stores than ever (at least, based on what we see), but we managed to save up enough recent stuff that it's worthy of a new post.
We've got more Reveal the Magic figures, lots of stuff at Dollar Tree, redesigned Radz figures and more!
If you happen to find brand new stuff in your local store, then feel free to write us a small message with photos.

MLP Mash'ems Series 12 Featuring Student 6 Now At Walmart
A brand new series of Mash'ems (formerly Fash'ems) has popped-up at Walmart this week, featuring the Student 6. The retail box features a Smolder Mash'em in the display window and contains 12 capsules, which should be enough to get a full set of 6 figures.
Included are at least Gallus, Ocellus, Smolder, Yona and Silverstream, together with a mystery figure. By the outline it looks to be Cozy Glow instead of Sandbar. He seems to have been traded with Ocellus compared with the latest Stack'ems set.
Whether this is an early release at Walmart or not is unknown, so far we only heard of this particular find and Walmart as not yet listed them on their website. If anyone else has found these at their local Walmart, please let us know.

Thanks to SLPhotos for the photos!

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!

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!
