Store Finds: Photo Finish Re-Release, Wave 18 & More
This week we have a rather small store finds update for you, but an update nonetheless. One of finds was a new release of the Photo Finish fashion style, but we also have an art set and blind bags for you this week.
If you happen to find brand new stuff in your local store, then feel free to write us a small message with photos.

New Equestria Girls Minis Announced - The End of EqG Dolls?
Hasbro has released their official press statement for the upcoming line of Equestria Girls for 2017. Several figures have already been announced before, but there is plenty of new merch coming our way the coming months, including some interesting names! Expect sets with Starlight Glimmer, Daring Do, Trixie, Muffins (Derpy) and more, including a new character: Juniper Montage!
A big point of attention is the fact that all listings for this year's Equestria Girls line-up consists of Minis and with that it's officially over for the Equestria Girls dolls line. We'll await the Toy Fair for a definite conclusion, but the released info is a pretty big hint.

We've listed all press release information below and highlighted the more interesting names to make it a bit more readable.

Images of Rarity FiM Collection Small Story Packs Released
Back in January we saw a magazine advert for the upcoming Rarity Friendship is Magic Collection Small Story Pack sets and a week later we got many high quality images of the other Rarity FiM Collection sets, but we were left without promo images of the earlier shown small packs.
But now, on the Icelandic Toys"R"Us website of all places, we finally get the images we were missing.
Below we have all images of the sets:

UK MLP Magazine Shows Upcoming Rarity FiM Collection
Back in March we initially spotted a few listings for Friendship is Magic Collection sets around the "Green Isn't Your Color" episode, and it has long been quiet around these sets. Out of the blue the official UK MLP Magazine is giving some of these sets away in a contest, which is extraordinary, as the sets are not available or even officially announced yet.
We can now clearly see that these sets are based on the Season 1-episode, with both spa scenes as well as clothing shoots with Photo Finish. The dresses from Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo in this case are from the "For Whom the Sweetie Belle Toils" episode, which aired later in Season 4.
With the huge amount of release in the past few weeks and this announcement in the UK magazine are strong indications that these sets will be sold very soon. Below we've included the original Amazon listings for all sets, which will hopefully be updated with high quality stock images soon!
Thanks to Robbie for the images!

New Equestria Girls Minis Sets Now Up For Pre-Order
This week the recently announced Equestria Girls Minis sets have popped-up on Amazon and Entertainment Earth as pre-orders for the coming months. While the sets already appeared in shops around Asia, the US and Europe are always required to have a bit more patience. The release date on the Amazon listings vary from next month up to the end of February, but Entertainment Earth is a bit more positive and sets the bar at December and January. At this moment the listings over at EE are significantly cheaper than those at Amazon (due to 3rd party sellers), but that's sure to drop in the coming period. All listings below:

This may come as a surprise, or perhaps... maybe not. But some of the new Equestria Girls Minis Sets we found about a week ago have now already been spotted at Toys'R'Us Singapore. This isn't the first time Singapore has gotten merch way earlier then the US Release as a lot of earlier merch has been spotted in Singapore earlier as well like the Explore Equestria Fashion Styles or Explore Equestria Sparkle Bright figures.  So far these are the only new things spotted so far. It's unsure whenever these will be available in other countries, probably before the end of the year.

Thanks to Joelle for the heads up and images!

MLP Merch Poll #99MLP Merch Poll #98 Results
We skipped a week due to holiday, but we're back for another poll!
Last time we asked you what your thoughts were on the announced Minty plush from Build-a-Bear. As somewhat expected your responses were overwhelmingly positive! Almost 55% likes the Minty plush and another 29% would buy anything from Build-a-Bear anyway. A small 5% is still indifferent and only 5% does not like the plush. Another 6% has never heard of Minty, which is understandable as she has not been a big character in the G4-era yet.

MLP Photo Finish Equestria Girls Minis Flashy Photo Class Set
Four Amazon listings for upcoming Equestria Girls Minis Sets have now been updated with official images! We have the Splashy Art Class Set with Pinkie Pie, Rockin' Music Class Set with Rainbow Dash, Science Star Class Set with Twilight Sparkle and at last we have the Flashy Photo Class Set which comes with Photo Finish who makes her debut in the minis line. These will be the larger sets that will be included with the Rainbow Rocks Themed Minis which have also been announced (including Adagio Dazzle) but they haven't received images yet. So you can find these later under the Rainbow Rocks section in the EqG Minis Database.

MLP Photo Finish and Royal Ribbon Explore Equestria Fashion Styles
Quite an interesting find. It turns out that the second wave of the Explore Equestria Fashion Styles have been spotted at Target US. As announced at the fair, the second wave consist of Photo Finish and Royal Ribbon. (The first wave contains Sapphire Shores and Starlight Glimmer) They have also been listed on the Target website for $14.99 dollars but according to the site they are only available in stores at the moment. However they are also listed on Amazon and they are $24.99 there but they are sold by a third-party seller so expect the price to drop later.

Thanks to TheSnuggleKinz for the heads up and image!
