Target Lists Four G3 Retro Classic Ponies
The 3rd generation of My Little Pony started back in 2003, and when you think about it, that's already 16 years ago! Whether this falls in the 'retro' category is up to personal preference, but what is sure is that four G3 re-releases are planned for this fall! Under the 'Retro Classic' line Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash will be released in their original G3 form according to listings that popped up on the Target website.
All ponies each come with a comb are listed for $8.49 with an MSRP of $9.99. And while they are marked as 'sold out', we didn't get any confirmations that they were available just yet. That's why we expect them to be available somewhere in the coming weeks.

Below we have more photos of all the ponies, as well as the listings and some more background information on these figures.

Hasbro Announces My Little Pony Retro Rainbow Mane 6
After the My Little Pony 35th Anniversary celebration from last year, Hasbro goes back in time again and announces a brand new set of retro ponies based on the modern mane 6!
The main cast from Friendship is Magic is shaped after ponies from older generation, though with a little twist. Fluttershy, Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash are molded after the classic G1 Firefly pose and Pinkie Pie, Rarity and Applejack are a mixture of G1 and G3 styles. Color-wise the ponies have not changed, but the cutie marks did: they increased in number and size, looking more like the G1 symbols than their current cutie marks.
All ponies come in a single box that is covered with retro-vibes, and even the logo from the first generation! We also received some crazy hi-res images of this set, of which we shared a little compilation below to show you the quality of detail of the figures and packaging.

The My Little Pony Retro Rainbow Mane 6 collection will be an Amazon exclusive and release on the first of September. Pre-orders are available for $24.99.

Together with this new set comes the premiere of My Little Pony: The Retro Show, a free weekly show where Hasbro looks back on the history of My Little Pony from the 80's and 90's.

And if you still have more thirst for retro My Little Pony, why not take a look at our own book My Little Pony Collectibles, where we take a look at the rich history of MLP throughout the generations!

Finally Official: Stranger Things x My Little Pony Applejack
Today is the start of the new Stranger Things season, and for this season Netflix has partnered up with Hasbro and Basic Fun to release this very special Stranger Things-themed Applejack. She is not looking like her regular self and comes with a white and blue color scheme, which includes her mane, tail and symbol/cutie mark. The latter of which is intentionally printed upside-down.
She comes in a monochrome box and is always packed wrong side up. On the back we see the usual style of the 35th Anniversary ponies, though it only showing Applejack. Within the box you not only get the pony, but a bow and hairbrush are included too. Everything in matching blue.
This special Applejack is currently only available in-store at Target, where you can pick her up for $9.99. Note that a handful of ponies are also available from 3rd part sellers on Amazon, though with a higher price tag.

My Little Pony Majesty Basic Fun SDCC 2019 Exclusive
San Diego Comic Con is less than two weeks away and a lot of companies keep revealing their exclusives. Hasbro already revealed their exclusive about two weeks ago, and now, Basic Fun will also release their own exclusive: Majesty. Majesty was released in the second year of the first generation of My Little Pony and came with the Dream Castle Playset.
However as you might have noticed this version looks a whole lot different as both the pony itself and the box are completely covered with her symbol.

Store Finds: G1 Rainbow Ponies, Lots at Ross, Easter Basket & Much More
As you might have noticed we're not posting a weekly store finds report anymore. While this is partly due to our busy lives at the moment, but also the reduced amount of My Little Pony stuff that is currently being released. The announced end of the G4 series is definitely not helping, but we're hoping to report on new stuff soon.
For now most of the items found in stores are discounted old stock and a handful of new items. Nevertheless interesting news if you're looking to complete your collection!
If you happen to find brand new stuff in your local store, then feel free to write us a small message with photos.

My Little Pony Classic Series Retro Bubbles Year 2 Earth Pony
Some very big news for the fans of the 35th Anniversary Collector Ponies: Target has listed the Year 2 Earth Ponies and the Year 3 Rainbow Ponies! Although being not available yet it's great to still them still being made after the 35th Anniversary last year. They did change the packaging though as the 35th Anniversary emblem is now gone and replaced with the word "Classic" on the front of the box.

Our First Book: My Little Pony Collectibles - Now Open for Pre-Order!
First of all we'd like to give a very big and kind thanks to Amberley Publishing for giving us the opportunity to make our book reality!

Remember our post on the first of April this year? We kept everyone in doubt on whether the announcement was a joke or reality, but today we can finally reveal the answer to you: it's real, and it's coming next month!
