Smashin' Fashion & Best Hair Day Pre-Orders + Happy New Year!

Happy new year everyone! It's been quite a ride the past months, and we hope 2021 will be a healthy year for everyone. There has been a lot of negativity, but for us personally we've also had our share of positive and life-changing moments. Here on MLP Merch we're going to continue for another year of pony merch, and are wondering what's going to happen in May with the NY Toy Fair, which is normally the peak of new announcements.

Because the event is a couple of months later than the regular week in February, we wouldn't be surprised if Hasbro is going to host an online presentation around that time and give a sneak-peak of what we can expect in the Spring 2021. Especially when the new movie and generation is on the horizon!

Images of Pony Life: Pony Friends Figures Found

After the well-hidden announcement on the South African Facebook page of My Little Pony, we finally found more information on these figures at a Swiss toy store. The line will be called "Pony Friends", and contain more than just the Rarity, Sunset Shimmer and Princess Cadance figures from the teaser.

My Little Pony Sunset Shimmer Smashin Fashion Figure

About two weeks ago we posted about new listings that had been spotted on Toywiz talking about Smashin Fashion figures. Today Entertainment Earth has also added these listings, but together with images as well! It turns out this a new line/set for G4 after Reveal the Magic. Three characters are included at the moment: Rainbow Dash, Sunset Shimmer and Twilight Sparkle. However in terms of design they now have an Anthropomorphic look and each of them also comes with clothing and (hidden) accessories. Judging from the packaging you're supposed to blow-up the bag and then smash it to reveal the accessories inside. It might also be possible to bend the figures in such a way that they resemble actual ponies. A listing for a Party Bus also has appeared but that one doesn't have images yet.

Get dressed with the My Little Pony Smashin' Fashion Mini-Figures! Each articulated figure includes bows, outfits, and other fun accessories to customize for your very own.

Have the listings below. They are set to have a January 2021 release.

Know Idea & Sega Toys Announce Acrylic Character Stands in Japan

There has been quite a unique announcement in Japan this week on JapanPonyCon by Know Idea, who we never heard of before. With their distribution partner Sega Toys (who are licensed by Hasbro) they're planning on releasing three Equestria Girls Friends Forever acrylic character stands, based on the original concept artwork of Rita Lux.

If the artworks looks familiar, you're absolutely right, simailar concept drawings have been used on the packaging of the Equestria Girls reboot series, as well as some Fashion Squad figures.

Sunset Shimmer Magazine Figure Released by Egmont
At first I thought this was a second design, but no, apparently this is the first time Egmont made a Sunset Shimmer magazine figure! Yes we had Twilight Sparkle 3 times, Trixie twice and even Starburst, but this is the first Sunset Shimmer since the line of figures started back in 2014.

ToyWiz Lists new My Little Pony Toys: Best Hair Day and Smashing Fashion

New listings have appeared on ToyWiz and with these listings at least one thing will be confirmed, and that's Sunset Shimmer will indeed be released as a figure. The listings are for a set called Best Hair Day which includes Princess Cadance (and maybe another pony since it mentions it's a 2-pack) if that's the case it could be that perhaps Rarity is included as we saw a promo earlier with Princess Cadance having Rarity's hair... perhaps you can mix and match hairstyles?

official South African My Little Pony Facebook Rarity, Princess Cadance and Sunset Shimmer
Today we've spotted something very interesting. The official South African My Little Pony Facebook page has posted an image of a Rarity G4.5 life. While this is nothing that special seeing as she has been released already (although another variant with glitter), behind her are two figures of Sunset Shimmer and Princess Cadance. Two figure we haven't seen yet. Judging by their looks they appear to be perhaps some budget releases judging by the paint job. Sunset Shimmer doesn't have the yellow parts in her mane and Princess Cadance... well her hair is a solid purple and her Cutie Mark is a solid blue/white color as well.

So far the South African Page is the only one who has posted this one so far. And the post itself didn't provide any other information. The exact post can be found below:
We all have a friend who is a fashionista like Rarity, adventurous like Rainbow Dash and silly like Pinkie Pie. Tag them in the comments below and let them know they are loved, because Friendship is Magic! Buy My Little Pony toys here:
Perhaps these were just some prototypes/mock-ups and they will never be released. Perhaps they are customs/mock-ups judging that Princess Cadance has the same hair as Rarity. But that seems very unlikely to me, especially when you look at the eyes which do look pretty real if you compare them with the official releases. (They have that "print" texture if that makes sense.) And at last, it would be kinda weird for an official MLP Page to post customs/mock-ups. I think we just have to wait and see but as usual, we'll keep you updated.

My Little Pony Kotobukiya Bishoujo Statue Princess Luna and Princess Celestia

We have lots of Kotobukiya news this morning! During their Kotobukiya Summer Expo livestream they revealed the next two statues for the My Little Pony Bishoujo statues line: Princess Luna and Princess Celestia, and the artwork for these already looks incredible! Can't wait to see what the statues themselves will look like.

Colored Concept of Sunset Shimmer Bishoujo Shared by Kotobukiya
After the initial designs of the mane 6 bishoujo statues, Kotobukiya announced earlier this year that they would additionally work on a Sunset Shimmer statue, due to popular demand.
After nearly 3 months we finally got the confirmation that the Sunset Shimmer project has continued and we can now lay our eyes on the colored concept art for this upcoming statue. While it was already expected, we can now see that she's indeed rocking her original outfit with a purple top, leather jacket, orange skirt and boots. And she's accompanied by her pony form, who's posing like she's ready for action.
As seen on the poster, it takes some time to design and finalize this figure as it was not part of their original line up, and thus the release date is still TBD. When more info becomes available on a release date or pre-orders, we'll be sure to post about it here!
