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!

A Look at the Polish Series 4 MLP Trading Cards
Most of you will be familiar with the My Little Pony trading cards. They're released internationally by Enterplay, we've seen 4 large series and 2 side series and you may even know that our admin Ilona designed one of the cards.
But what if we told you that not all cards are written in English? And that a special release of the 4th series is available in Poland?

Enterplay teamed up with Media Service Zawada, a Polish distributor, to release a subset of the Series 4 trading cards within Poland. This set does not feature all cards that you might be familiar with, but contains Polish versions of the character, song and location cards. Aside from regular foil cards all other card types and chase version are excluded, which means no FanArts, logic cards or shaped foil cards. In total this leaves 99 cards to collect: 81 regular cards and 18 foils. As with the regular series buying a booster box should guarantee you a complete set of regular cards, but the foils are random.

Booster packs contain 5 cards each: 4 regular cards and 1 guaranteed foil card. FunTat tattoos and stickers are absent in this set too. This does make the card packs relatively cheap with a price tag of only 3.99PLN, which is just over $1. Aside from the loose boosters there's also an album to keep track of your card collection for 29.99PLN (which includes 4 packs) and a complete booster box (24 packs) is available for 94.99PLN. Images of what this all looks like can be found below!

Many thanks to Piro for the information and photos! He also made unpacking videos of the album and booster box (in Polish).

MLP by Butrich - Exclusive Designer Shoes & Accessories from Peru
Exclusive designer fashion is not something that we talk about a lot on our blog, but we're going to make an exception for the fashionistas today with a look at the latest collection by Butrich from Peru.
While I personally never heard of this brand before, we were alerted by alejandrahumbser (thanks!) about this new line of shoes & accessories, and there's a good reason for that!
The latest line is called "My Little Pony by Butrich" and features, you've guessed it, MLP-themed designs! Butrich designed 6 high-heel shoes themed after the mane 6, and clutches to match the ponies too. In addition Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle inspired earrings are also part of the collection. Every pony got their own designs, making every piece in the collection unique.
Every piece of the collection is available right now. Not planning on visiting their store in Lima any time soon? Everything is available in their web shop too. Though, a little warning beforehand: shoes & clutches start at US$325!

Coming Next Week: Our Biggest Site Update Ever
It's been a bit quiet on MLP Merch lately, and that's not all down to the fact that there isn't much to report on: We're working very hard to get the biggest update of MLP Merch ever ready for release next week!
Followers of our Twitter might have spotted some teasers hinting on the release, and we're now so close to a release that we'd very much like to share with you what's going on. To get the biggest change out in the open: we're adding the classic G1, G2 and G3 ponies to the database! This allows everyone to finally get a complete checklist and wishlist of ponies outside of just G4 ponies and merch.
Aside from this we're also adding a long awaited feature to the database, namely that of adding personal notes to ponies. Through this way you can keep note of how many ponies you own, if there's anything missing from a set or to keep track of where you bought a pony from.
And there's more that will we added next week, so keep an eye out for the release next week!

We hope that you understand our current lack of posts in favor of this update and are looking forward to the release next week. We'll keep you posted!
