After the Baby Flurry Heart figure, who got very mixed responses from collectors, the next figure to be bundled with the MLP Magazine is a Rainbow Dash figure in Wonderbolts outfit. This is the first time Egmont decided to go with an alternative outfit for the included figure instead of a new character. Later this year they will get a bigger pool of popular characters with the release of My Little Pony The Movie, so hopefully we'll see some more characters towards that day.
The announcement seen above is for the German magazine, but usually other countries with the same magazine receive the figure around the same time.
Thanks to Nora4 for the image!
It's been a while since our last Store Finds post, especially with the Toy Fair in between, but we're back with another one! This time we've received reports of MLP Easter Eggs, toothpaste, Equestria Girls Minis and various more items! If you happen to find brand new stuff in your local store, then feel free to write us a small message with photos.
We have waited for quite some years but our wishes have bee granted. Lots of people have wanted Boy Ponies with normal brushable hair for quite some time and now during the New York Toy Fair This year two BOY brushables have been revealed. And as expected we get one for two of the most popular colts on the show: Big Mac and Soarin. We can also see the whole line-up for the "All-About" line which included the ponies with some decals based around the show.
Expect more info during our coverage as well as more info about the other brushables. This image was taken from the video by MyFroggyStuff which we would like to thank for the video. :)
The complete line-up of US My Little Pony plush by Hasbro is now available for purchase. Both on the HasbroToyShop website and Amazon can you now order the 5", 10", 12" and 22" ponies. In some stores, like Target, you might be able to get various sizes as well, but some characters may run out of stock quickly. Below we have a full list of what's available on which site. Enjoy!
The reason I mentioned the "US line-up", is because the release of the other 5" plush is still a bit vague. These plush were removed from the US Hasbro website quite quickly, but are still present on various other Hasbro website, like the UK version. It has been rumored that these were only prototypes that were not supposed to be put online, but we haven't confirmed this yet. This line has a different product code from the (premium) 5" and has "BT" in product name. If anyone is familiar with that might mean we'd be happy to hear it!
Thanks to Victor for the photo and Ayu for additional info!
This week on Instagram, Rubie's, known for their licensed costumes, introduced the world to a new niche they're going to explore for their licenses: Dog Costumes. Part of this line, which they call Rubie's Pet Shop, are costumes of Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle. The costumes consist of a hat, body and skirt, all of which are separately available. They'll be available in various sizes, but all images on their Instagram are of small dogs, so don't expect to dress up your Great Dane in a tutu.
As of this summer wholesale orders will be processed, but it's unknown what type of stores are going to sell these, nor do we know anything about the prices yet.
During the New York Comic Con last year we got a glimpse at the My Little Pony Itty Bitty Plush that would be released this year. Months have passed and now they are finally available. Right now only four of them are listed on the Hallmark website and the same four have been found in stores as well. (store is currently unknown, let us know if you know more.) The two missing ones are Applejack and Rarity but both were shown during the NYCC last year so it's most likely they will arrive later.
Yesterday in our Store Finds post we already reported on many findings at US Target stores, but our frequent submitter Victor just got a pretty big haul at Target, showing even more releases that have only just hit the shelves.
In addition to the loose Runway Fashions figures the Runway Set is now available, as well as the Twisty Twirly Hair and single brushables figures. A complete overview of what's available in the Reboot Series can be found in our Brushables Database, and by comparing that to the photos from Target you can see that most announced sets are now available. The only figures not confirmed to be released in the US yet are the second wave of single brushables and On-the-Go Purse figures.
Prefer to buy figures online? Target does not have most of these listed yet, but Amazon does! Check our collection of Amazon listings for the Reboot Series figures, as well as the new Equestria Girls Minis and Hasbro plush.
Ever wondered what those new Runway Fashions figures and Rarity's Carousel Boutique look like? Thanks to Rich we now have some detailed photos of the figures. He sold them on eBay, but was kind enough to first send in the pictures.
In the photos you can see all different outfits that come with the Runway Fashions figures, as well as the runway itself. Old style figures do fit in the same outfits as the new ones, so you're pretty free to dress up your favorite pony in those outfits.
The Carousel Boutique comes with some fitting accessories, but also new Opalescence and Hoity Toity figures. Hoity Toity is slightly differently painted from the original 3-pack release, but the mold is the same.
Anyway, enough chit-chat, all images can be found below!
A lot of the new released merchandise is now also available on Amazon. For example we have almost all the Reboot Series Brushables and the Neon Rocking Equestria Girls Minis. Have all the listings below! They might sell out soon since they are new but if so expect them back in stock soon.
UPDATE: More new items have become available like the on-the-go purses, Spin-along Chariots, the Royal Friendship set with Applejack, Twilight Sparkle and Spike and some of the new 12 inch plush!
Hasbro is quite into making plushies these days isn't it? And in addition to the ones that were found earlier, a new set of plushies has appear don the official MLP Website. It's actually quite strange what's going on with these as they are also 5 inches tall and also have the spaghetti-like hair. But if we compare them we can see that these are a much lower quality then the ones spotted before. Some of them are missing the sparkles in their manes and these ones also have printed eyes and cutie marks instead of embroided ones. The material looks also more like tricot fabric. They will cost $4.99 each which is the same as the other ones.
