Review: Pop Mart My Little Pony Natural Series Blind Boxes

Aside from all the G5 news, one of our most popular posts from the past months has to be the Pop Mart MLP Natural Series reveal. Personally we were really curious to take a closer look at these new blind boxes from China, from a brand we weren't familiar with. That's why we decided to order some and create a review!

Easy Photo Submit Feature + Giveaway!

We have a brand new feature in our database that makes it much easier to send in your photos! The good-old 'Image Missing' placeholder has now been replaced with a button and clicking it opens a short form where you can directly upload photos of your pony. Better yet, if you're on a mobile device you can directly take a photo from there. Aside from picking a photo, you can include your name so that we directly know who to credit for the donated picture.

This is what the button looks like in the database

If you want to help out and send in photos of your ponies to fill up the gaps in the database, be sure to check our handy guide. This will teach you how to make the perfect photo and gives you some examples on the do's and don'ts. And if you want to check our which ponies we're missing images of, you can visit our new submit page where they're all listed.

And to celebrate this new feature we're hosting a new giveaway! If you submit photos in the database before the end of April, and your photo is selected, you could win a $50 Amazon shopping spree on us!

Giveaway details:

  • Giveaway runs from 3/14/2021 till 4/30/2021
  • One winner will receive a $50 USD Amazon shopping spree (we will purchase items of up to $50 USD from the winner's Amazon.com wishlist)
  • Submit photos in the database and enter your email address in the form
  • Only submitted photos that are selected for the database are eligible to win (i.e. photos that follow the guidelines)
  • Each eligible photo is one entry (more photos = bigger chance of winning)
  • At the end of the giveaway all submitted photos will be evaluated and entries will be counted
  • The winner will be picked at random from all eligible entries and contacted through email

PSA: 5-Digit Code Doesn't Reveal Secret Rings Content

In the past few days we've seen and heard of several people trying to identify the pony inside of the Secret Rings blind bags by the 5-digit code that is printed on the packaging. Sadly, this code does not identify the pony inside. Nor did we find any other codes on the packaging that help with that.

Our Latest Website is Now Live! Introducing Nendoroid Heaven
Over the past few months we've been working on a secret project, and we're happy to finally share this with you: as of today our newest website Nendoroid Heaven is online!
We take a big leap from Hasbro and Mattel toy lines into Japanese figurines, but we've been in love with this line of figures for quite some time. With this first release we start with the original line of 1500+ Nendoroid figures, and are planning to add Nendoroid Dolls and Nendoroid More accessories.

New with this website is the gallery of images we added for each figure as addition to the regular product image, and sometimes packaging. This new features allows us to show more details of an image without clogging up the regular overview pages. We're planning on adding that to the MLP Merch database as well!

We hope that Nendoroid Heaven will be a resourceful site for (aspirant) collectors or people who'd love to browse through pages of figures from all sort of franchises.

April Fools! But an Update is Coming Soon...
April Fools! Of course our primary focus hasn't been the release of the G4 Hot Air Balloon database, but we are in fact very close to a big update of the G1 database. We're basically merging the international release with the local releases and nirvana's into a more complete collection of everything G1. Including (closely estimated) release years, manufacturers and more photos! We still can't give an exact release date for it yet, but know that are we in the process of testing the code changes at the moment.
For those who missed it, below is our April Fools post from yesterday.

New York Toy Fair 2020 Wrap-Up
The 2020 New York Toy Fair is behind us so it's time for our yearly wrap-up. And this year has been quite disappointing for those who were expecting to see tons of new merchandise. Granted we'll probably see a lot more merchandise during the next Toy Fair in 2021 since the G5 Movie will be released the same year. For this year the focus lays on the new Pony Life Series which will debut this spring/summer.

Hasbro

Hasbro My Little Pony at New York Toy Fair 2020Hasbro My Little Pony at New York Toy Fair 2020
Hasbro didn't reveal many new items this year. Most of the items shown were Reveal the Magic Toys that are actually already available. Several new items have been spotted though, including the officially announced "Kiss my Unicorn" Princess Celestia and the Unicorn Sparkle Collection which comes with DJ Pon-3, Rarity, Starlight Glimmer, Trixie and Twilight Sparkle. Alongside those two we also got a glimpse at the Potion Princess Cadance, the Potion Dress-up Rarity and new Fashion Squad singles of Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle.
There was also an absence of Cutie Mark Crew, which leaves the question what future this line will see in 2020.
And lastly we can't ignore the absolutely adorable Fluttershy juice box cushion that was on display next to the Kiss my Unicorn figure. No idea what their plans are with this, but I sure hope this will be taken in production!

Mega Mashems
Brand new are these Mega Mash'ems, which are larger versions of the well known Mash'ems/Fash'ems that we've known My Little Pony versions of since 2013. This new line will start with 4 figures: Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle and Fluttershy in blind capsules.
Meijer has listed the Mega Mash'ems last week, including a high quality render of the packaging, but it seems to be down again.

YuMe

YuMe My Little Pony at New York Toy Fair 2020YuMe My Little Pony at New York Toy Fair 2020
A new name here is YuMe, who showed their first line of My Little Pony licensed products. And they start off with a pretty large line-up, including plush in various sizes, a "Magic Advent Calendar" and most excitingly: a line of collectible stampers called Pony Pals. These small stampers with pony-figures come in their own dome, with their matching pet and interchangeable flooring to customize the domes. On the display we learn that the first series will include the mane 6 and 2 others who were (purposely) left out of frame. Perhaps Trixie and Potion Nova?
While the name YuMe probably sounds unfamiliar for you, people within the EMEA (Europe, Middle-Eastern, Africa) region will get to know them very well over the next year, as they become the primary partner for plush for these markets. This is especially welcome, as the amount of plush licenses dropped significantly in the past few years.

Kotobukiya

The bishoujo statues by Kotobukiya were also on display, but the most recent reveal of the colored Applejack statue was absent. However, the teaser poster for Sunset Shimmer was there and we get the confirmation that the Rainbow Dash statue will have a slightly increased MSRP compared to the other girls, which is also reflected on their US website now.
