Freeny's Hidden Dissectibles MLP Figures + Apparel REVIEW

One of the most popular post from this year was the announcement of the My Little Pony figures in the Freeny's Hidden Dissectibles line back in august. With many thanks to Mighty Jaxx we received a box with all items in the line-up, including the apparel, so we can give you a thorough review of this unique My Little Pony merch series.

Aside from the review we're also able to offer you $10 off $100 in the Mighty Jaxx store with this referral link (we'll also receive a small kickback).

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.

Big MLP Merch Database Update Now Available!
Today we proudly present the latest update for the MLP Merch database! It took us a bit more time than we initially expected, but with the current global situation we found more available time to work on make the database a better and faster experience.
In this post we'll share all the new and improved stuff, and hope that you can enjoy the databases now more than ever!

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 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 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 My Little Pony at New York Toy Fair 2020
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.

Hasbro Releases Ponies: The Galloping Trading Card SetHasbro Releases Ponies: The Galloping Trading Card Set
We normally don't post anything related to Magic The Gathering, but when Hasbro starts a collaboration with My Little Pony we're happy to jump in!
Hasbro just sent out a news statement that the Ponies: The Galloping Trading Card Set will be available tomorrow, as well as an exclusive set of Ultra PRO playmats. Both to celebrate the final episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and to raise money for charity.

Hasbro Reveals 2019 SDCC Exclusive Through The Years Twilight Sparkle
A few minutes ago Hasbro has officially shared images and information on this year's San Diego Comic Con exclusive figure, which is a throwback to the 35th Anniversary of My Little Pony! Twilight Sparkle is combined with her former self, Twilight, in this exclusive Through The Years 2-pack.
The G4 Twilight Sparkle combines an existing 3" body with new face and mane design (with bangs!), while the G1-based Twilight has a brand new pearlized design with the looks of the original pony from the 1980's.
Both come in a combined see-through package showing a design of Twilight on one side and Twilight Sparkle on the other side. Each side also shows the My Little Pony design from their respected era. The set will be available for $19.99 and debut at the San Diego Comic Con. Afterwards the figure will be available on the Hasbro Pulse website while stock lasts.

My Little Pony NY Toy Fair 2019 Wrap-Up
It's February, and that means New York Toy Fair time! Although, this year is quite different from earlier installments (2018, 2017, 2016, 2015 & 2014) as it's accompanied by the official statement from Hasbro that the upcoming 9th season of Friendship is Magic will be the final one for the generation. Everything points towards an upcoming 5th generation afterwards, but you'll find no hint of that on the fair this year. Instead it's a line-up that pretty much covers everything that has been announced in the past few weeks, including the recent waves of Cutie Mark Crew and brushables that were released in late 2018.
Though, we do see some new sets on display at the fair this year, with the 2019 series called "Rainbow Road Trip" which ties in with an upcoming special. And there's some amazing news from other companies too, including Kidrobot, who are releasing their first My Little Pony figures this year!
