Welcome to the Out Now & Coming Soon thread

This thread is a community collaborative effort – with us all spread so widely across the world hopefully we should together manage to keep it up to date with what, where and when items can be found. So please feel free to post here or pm with your information and images so they can be added.

Note that "Wave" indicates expected order of release and as new items are released or found, these Wave orders may change.
Countries of release are where items have to date been found that I am aware of - if you can add countries or remove countries to the list for certain items, again please let me know.

Hey, new thread!

I found G4.5 Rainbow and Rarity at HEB of all places today. I was curious about their hair quality, and I am not disappointed! Rainbow's is super soft and silky (like Potion, AJ and Flutters), whereas Rarity's is slightly lower quality but still pretty good compared to recent years (like Twilight and Trixie). Seems like it was just Pinkie who got stiffed.

Unfortunately Rarity has a ton of factory dirt that won't come off - black and blue smudges mostly on her face. They're not too glaringly obvious, but I'd recommend checking the one you're buying in the store to make sure it's to your liking.

Also found two of the wave 2 baby seaponies at 5 Below, as well as this thing:

New thread, cool! Here's to another 8 years. ^^
I had noticed that the blind bag potion sets at Target are on clearance now, waves 1a and 1b.
Styling head Pinkie is cool! Too bad she doesn't have any accessories.

Yay, new thread! :frolic:

I forget if I said this on the last thread or not, but I finally saw the G4.5s in person the other week. They're... hm.. Well, they look better in person than in photos, but I don't think I'll be getting one any time soon ;) Still haven't seen Potion Nova, though.

@LAW - one otherworldy thing right here by the looks :P

Pony ritual sacrifice??

On a more serious note, I really wish toy companies wouldn't superimpose real world flag details or stuff on toys that belong in a fantasy environment.

It's awkward enough when they're just on doll clothes. There's one or two MH dolls with huge union jacks on their outfits which is a bit...cringe.

But on ponies? Who live in ponyland/friendship gardens/equestria/ponyville?

Please no.

Yep! She was a Series 6 Three-Pack. I was training cashiers and saw it while gathering stuff to practice scanning. The package I saw came with a normal RD and Fluttershy topper. There's a chance to get a silver Pinkie Pie as well. I spent about an hour trying to get my trainees to see what it was...and then I squished the box a bit so I could check the ear color through the hole in the top.
I'm really curious to see if they'll make other tops like this. Certainly wasn't expecting it!

Make America 20% cooler again.

Honest question, do Americans usually give kids flag themed gifts on 4th of July? And why not use Twilight, she already has stars on her butt. Or was RD chosen because she is technically airforce and is therefore more patriotic than pagan monarch Twilight? :lol:
I just want to understand your culture.

Here's a fake-transparent PNG that I remember seeing a lot of around Season 1, RD salutes in one episode and everyone took that and ran.

That's probably why she was chosen, also because patriotic bronies do seem to attach to her more than the others.
As for 4th of July...not so much dedicated gifts as much as just "We have a barbecue, here's some glow sticks and a shirt to wear for fun. Also here's some sparklers."
I don't think kids really care much for the flag unless they've been brought up to, it is such a strange thing to create that I'm 100% sure was influenced by the saluting Dash and how popular it was a bit ago. I was only so excited about it cuz it's such a strange thing. XD

It's something you should hold on to for a while and then sell to any overseas Brony at inflated price. I doubt other countries will get an American Flag Dash head you can drink from :lol:

Gifts? No. But they sometimes get flag themed shirts, or party favors and little fire crackers and sparklers depending on their age.

RD was chosen because she is blue and the theme is red,white, and blue.  Unless the item really was designed specifically because of that one picture, then I doubt the designer of the item had any real knowledge of MLP and wouldn’t have known and/or cared about Twilight’s cutie mark.  Especially considering that the item is only of the head.

Re: 4th of July

Gifts are not traditional.  It’s more that it’s traditional to decorate and/or dress in flag themed colors and the retail stores are full of all kind of things red, white and blue.  Much like everything is red and green in December and pastel colored in the spring.

Re: 4th of July: Yeah, the 4th is more of a BBQs and party favors kind of a deal. I could see a parent picking up that cup for their kid to take along to a picnic or cookout, though. Definitely not the most “out there” merch I’ve seen from FiM. XD

Kotobukiya's Rainbow Dash scale has a set release date now, she's releasing on the 26th of this month! Glad she wasn't delayed again.

Speaking of Kotobukiya, they've announced they're holding two livestreams this month to announce news on figures of theirs. One on the 23rd, another on the 30th. Presumably they are holding these since WonFes couldn't happen this year due to the virus (GoodSmile had to hold an online event as well for the same reason).

I'm hoping we'll get further news on Sunset Shimmer's scale on the first stream, since that's the one that covers the Bishoujo line. It also says on the image that they'll be announcing something "new" and "exciting" for the MLP Bishoujo line, not sure if this would be a second alternate color limited edition figure (Twilight maybe?) or if it'll be an 8th entry into the main version of the line. If it's an entirely new one, my guess is going to Starlight Glimmer.

I don’t think it is; it’s just one of those concave open mouths like the newer figures have. :/ The effect from the front is a tongue lolling out of her mouth.

News from tonight's Kotobukiya stream for MLP!

Sunset Shimmer got an update, with her painted sculpt being shown off. This should mean her preorders will begin sometime soon, and along with them opening we'll know her release month.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

They also announced some new figures. First up is the limited edition variant of Twilight Sparkle, with glittery translucent hair and purple skin more similar to EqG, just like what Pinkie got.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Lastly, next in line for the regular edition figures, they announced figures of Princess Celestia and Princess Luna!

I just picked up the retro tshirt at 5 Below.  For those interested, it wasn’t with the wall of other tshirts.  I nearly missed it because of that.  It and a couple other tshirts were on a middle display with some toys.  The sizes are S to XL but are definitely junior sizes.  Smallest XL I’ve ever seen.  Think I may try  to make it into a pillow cover.

I'll have to keep an eye out for the t-shirt again, when I went I just checked along the wall and didn't find it.
I ordered the unicorn sparkle 5-pack from Amazon and it's a cute set, I'll make a video review of it (recorded, just need to edit and that'll take all week). Just wanted to drop that the glitter on the horns is not as stabled as, like, the Pinkie's Boutique sparkles and has flaked off on two of mine.

Found some Transformers fans saying they found the Hershey Kisses Treasure Surprises (whew, can we condense that?) at Walmart up near the trading cards, I've not been in my Walmart in a few months though so won't be able to confirm that for a bit.
Grabby hands at that Trixie. Entertainment Earth has a listing for wave 2 but it's not back in stock yet.
Also, I heard that the skeleton ponies should be shipping soon, so if anyone was sitting on the idea of grabbing a case of them it'd be good to order soon. ^^

Wave 2 of PL? I think Wave 1 just got here...

One thing I will say for PL is that more emphasis on Trixie is no bad thing. She has always been one of the nicer (just outside the M6 regular) G4 ponies in terms of her colouring.

She's been featured just once in the show thus far, and it'll be cool to have a non-mane6 be the common one for once (Applejack and Fluttershy are not getting re-released in wave 2).
Potion Nova is getting a re-release as well!

I love Trixie so I'm happy to see her getting more toy love, even if I don't care for the toys personally. (It's the weird leg that's a dealbreaker for me ^^;) I wonder why they changed her face.. I think I prefer the wave 1 ver. Thanks for the photos, I love seeing comparison pics :)

Sunset Shimmer:

Koto US charges when you preorder - AmiAmi, Tokyo Otaku Mode (I think), and Solaris Japan send invoices when items are in stock so you don't pay until release. Unsure on how BBTS works. Out of all these shops the ones I've used myself are AmiAmi (for most things), Solaris (used once when AmiAmi wasn't taking preorders for a figure I wanted anymore), and Koto US (I only use them for exclusives like the limited pony figures).

I finally found the Hershey's Treasure Surprise.   They are very small and very easy to overlook on the shelf.  They were with the Wonderballs and Finder's Keepers items. There are also Transformers Treasure Surprise but I don't have a pic of those.

Some more preorders for Kotobukiya figures are up.

Limited Edition Twilight Sparkle:

https://www.kotous.com/my-little-pony-twilight-sparkle-limited-edition-bishoujo-statue.html (exclusive to Koto US overseas)

Sunset Shimmer:

https://solarisjapan.com/products/my-little-pony-sunset-shimmer-bishoujo-statue-my-little-pony-bishoujo-series-1-7-kotobukiya

Koto US charges when you preorder - AmiAmi, Tokyo Otaku Mode (I think), and Solaris Japan send invoices when items are in stock so you don't pay until release. Unsure on how BBTS works. Out of all these shops the ones I've used myself are AmiAmi (for most things), Solaris (used once when AmiAmi wasn't taking preorders for a figure I wanted anymore), and Koto US (I only use them for exclusives like the limited pony figures).
i heard from someone over on Equestria Daily that they use Deepdiscount for the figs, and they’re free shipping. Dunno if it was for one fig or all of them, but I don’t know if the site is reliable or not. The reviews seem mixed.

I found PL Rarity and Rainbow Dash! I picked up another Potion Nova, I want to see the Wave 2 ponies and catalogue the differences so I figured it would be good to get her for customization regardless of what wave she was. I think I found some differences:
Wave 1 tends to be of generally better quality overall. I've seen less printing errors on my full set of six than with my small set of 2-3 wave 2 ponies. Wave 2 has less hair, either in the plugs, or just that the plugs are more spread out so it's harder to tell. I counted 27 on my "wave 2" potion nova, and 33 on my wave 1 (on one side at least), so I think the culprit is just less hair and the plugs being spread. The hair runs further down the back of the head towards the neck on wave 2 ponies. The hair also feels different. Could just be because it's new, but the new hair feels more slippery/shiny/plasticy.
My Rarity has very thin plugs. Rainbow Dash too. Both have small printing errors of some kind on their eyes, and my "wave 2" Nova has blurred eyelashes. Her eyeshadow is also less saturated, but that may just be because of the printing (mine looks weiiirdd).

Of the 3 Walmarts I frequent, I've only been able to find the Hershey's Kisses at one of them.  They were located in the front of the store with the trading cards ($2.00 each).

I've seen the hershey transformers. We ended up with 3 Bumblebees, 1 Prime, 1 Grimlock and a Starscream.

The individual RMS ponies would be good for customs. But no meijers around here. How do you pronounce that?

Meijer (https://www.meijer.com/) is a store similar to Target and Walmart that are located mostly in Michigan, but also Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky, and Wisconsin.  We pronounce it "My-er" or "My-ers".

So like, what's the deal with invisible rarity?

That was an attempt at a joke on my part.  Guess it failed.

On my way home Monday, I stopped at Meijer and found 2 each of Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, and Twilight Sparkle.  I kept one set, the other was for my daughter, which she promptly opened.  My son said that he would like a set too.

On my way home Tuesday, I stopped at another Meijer, found the set of 4 for him, and also found one Fluttershy and one Rarity.  My daughter chose the Rarity, and promptly opened her.

Later that evening, I saw a thread about the multi-pack, and decided to photograph them.  Since my daughter had already gone to bed, I fished the empty Rarity package out of the recycle bin.  Then came up with that silly joke.

Since Gamestop has the others listed (DnD, Power Ranger & Ghostbuster) I'm betting they'll get this one, too.  Usually you can pre-order and have it shipped either to your house or pick up in store.

New Pony Life figures (they look to be singles, thank Luna) are on the way! (THANKS HASBRO, for doing this, after I decided not to collect as many ponies and start saving for a new J-hobby D-:< ) so we got Rarity, Cadance with Rarity hair, and a Sunset Shimmer missing her mustard stripe. Gotta get Sunnybuns, regardless.

No longer recognizably ponies, and no longer with brushable hair.

Brushable scale, I believe. But it's not like they've stopped making the brushables or anything, we have those too. G4 as a whole even began with a set of molded hair brushable scale ponies, they've always come out every so often alongside the brushables since G4. I hope they decide to make a brushable 4.5 Sunset though... preferably one that actually has both hair colors. :/ I love Sunset Shimmer but this one doesn't interest me at all due to only having red in her hair (that, and I prefer brushables over molded hair ponies).

I'm sure they'll be sold separately, I haven't seen a POP set this big. a couple of 2/3 packs but no more than that. I expect they'll probably be a bit more expensive than regular POPs, though, since they've got totally new molds and such.

I think they're cute!! I totally thought they'd just reuse the old G4 molds, excited to see new ones. The eyes are soulless but hey, what did you expect, it's POP. :P I'll probably end up with one or two.

I mostly like the shape for being more defined and less...potatoey, for lack of better description. Except for the hooves. That has always been one of my reasons for not liking the Collector set.

Wow. Ok, that's a bit...I want to think they're cute, but I agree with LAW in general on the collector pony pose. But the eyes...in that size...in that context...it doesn't look right. I am not really that worried about acquiring these anyway, so my opinion probably doesn't matter. But yeah. They seem like they have Hallowe'en custom zombie written all over them.

Afraid I might've eyerolled at the IG comment about them being "the original set before FIM came out." Like there wasn't 25ish years of pony before FIM came out.

The proportions are cute and just right, but yeah, the eyes on the front of the face ruin it. The beady eyes wouldn't even be that bad if they were positioned correctly. What is it with companies wanting to put eyes on the front of horses' heads nowadays? A lot of unicorn-related things I've seen recently have had the eyes right in front like a dog. I guess it's a matter of being able to make them make more human expressions but... :huh: That doesn't mean it looks good.

I know that G5 leak talked about making the ponies more horsey but I don't think I expect that from G5 at this point. Watch, they'll probably give us snouts but at the cost of them looking like dogs.

Wow. Ok, that's a bit...I want to think they're cute, but I agree with LAW in general on the collector pony pose. But the eyes...in that size...in that context...it doesn't look right. I am not really that worried about acquiring these anyway, so my opinion probably doesn't matter. But yeah. They seem like they have Hallowe'en custom zombie written all over them.

Afraid I might've eyerolled at the IG comment about them being "the original set before FIM came out." Like there wasn't 25ish years of pony before FIM came out.

Hasbro's gone senile maybe.

The proportions are cute and just right, but yeah, the eyes on the front of the face ruin it. The beady eyes wouldn't even be that bad if they were positioned correctly. What is it with companies wanting to put eyes on the front of horses' heads nowadays? A lot of unicorn-related things I've seen recently have had the eyes right in front like a dog. I guess it's a matter of being able to make them make more human expressions but... :huh: That doesn't mean it looks good.

I know that G5 leak talked about making the ponies more horsey but I don't think I expect that from G5 at this point. Watch, they'll probably give us snouts but at the cost of them looking like dogs.

Because they've never seen a picture of a horse in real life

the eyes look okay to me? The placement doesn't look -that- different to the actual Collector pose.. a bit stylized perhaps, but not "off". they do look a bit weird on the head-on photo but I think it's just the angle?

Ahh! They're so stupid looking, with their dead eyes combined with the sullen looking collector's pose, and I love them for it! I for one am glad that they have heads proportionate to their bodies, and they aren't in that square shape like the majority of Pops are.

I would have expected less effort on Funko's part when they made g1 ponies. I'm actually surprised by how cute they are. Also, plenty of cartoon horses have forward facing eyes. Even Disney is guilty of it. I'm so used to it in media it's not that big of a deal for me. I may pick some up if I find them.

I love the G1 funko ponies, and I normally hate funko. At least these guys have a snout :lol: I hate the stupid black eyes as always, but with some paint I think they can be fixed into something cuter! I repainted a Rainbow Dash funko keychain someone bought me, and after giving her a couple little eye sparkle dots, I love her!

I am looking forward to seeing repainted versions, though. I've seen some G4 POPs with the eyes repainted and they were super cute :>

I am glad they made Bluebelle after all, I was worried she'd be left out since she wasn't on the leaked release list.

I keep switching between liking the creepy-cute aesthetic these new G1 Funko Pops got going on and...not liking it. But it's interesting that they went with a style that resembles G1 more rather than just going with the regular Funko style. Glad they did that but something looks. Off. And it's not just the eyes.

Oof, I wish they’d just stuck with the G4 pop style, it was much cuter. The long horsey faces look really weird on those chibi bodies. That being said, I’m so incredibly happy they made the full set of 6 I will absolutely be getting these guys. They’re not ugly, just... weirdly proportioned.

I really, REALLY wish they had the eyes their actual eye colors and not Funko black. They look like the Other Mother from Coraline.

Funko does color in the eyes sometimes, so this is a missed opportunity to me. The rest of the design is nice.

Unfortunately you may be right, and that is one of the main reasons I fear FIM has destroyed MLP for good.

I liked RD in G3,  and graduated with her in 2003, but I was never much for Pinkie's coloiur scheme and I can't stand the FIM versions of either pony.

They make me happy to have grown up with G1. I will never give up on hoping Hasbro will eradicate them permanently in G5, but I won't hold my breath.

Sounds like you have quite the disdain for Pinkie and RD :lol: lol. I personally am not a huge fan of twilight sparkle, but didn’t really mind RD or pinkie.

Luna / nightmare moon & Celestia were my favorites from FIM! They are what made the show worth while IMO.

Hasbro had decided on those two (especially Pinkie) being the representative ponies for MLP long before FIM. To the point where they forced them into FIM despite the characters originally being designed as Surprise and Firefly. Tbh I hope future generations give them different personalities. I miss fashion forward Dashie and I'd love to see an organized Pinkie who loves planning parties as much as giving them.
Title: Re: ~Out Now and Coming Soon ~
Post by: Taffeta on November 16, 2020, 10:30:21 AM
I think Sunny Daze and Sparkleworks were just as representative in G3 up to a point, given all the merchandise. And later there was the core 7 nonsense as well. But yes, they did rather force them into the G4 lineup. Hasbro especially like Pinkie, you can tell by the amount they put out that they're really pleased with her. I guess they see 'pink' as a big seller, but they also seem to be under the misapprehension that G4 pinkie is 'random' and 'funny'. Unfortunately for them she's neither. If you have to try to be random or if random is a key concept of a persona, it's not random any more :p

And she's never been funny :/

I am not really a fan of any of the M6. They're all too cliche to really become attached to. But although I'm not really a fan of Firefly either, I don't think RD is a bit like her. The Firefly we saw in RaMC was not even a bit the same as Rainbow Dash in her attitude. And yeah, Firefly could be a reckless idiot in the comics, generally needing bailing out by someone else - but that arrogance RD has is nowhere to be seen.

I grew up with comic Surprise anyway, who bears zero resemblance to Pinkie Pie. But even that brief moment of Surprise in the G1 animation is also nothing like Pinkie Pie.

The forcing of the characters into G4 is Hasbro, for sure, but the personalities probably aren't entirely Hasbro's fault. Then again, I would've been seething even more if those personalities had been in Firefly and Surprise in G4, so..*shrug*.

Applejack in G4 is not especially offensive in comparison, despite being completely different from original AJ.

But eh. I was never much of a fan of the G1 animation as a kid, but watching FIM made me a lot more appreciative of the old series. ><

It's pretty on par with vinyl toys.. (especially if limited edition, which she appears to be -- http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/xxray-plus-mlp-princess-celestia-from-mightyjaxx )

Pics of the keyrings (yay!), but also it turns out Bluebelle is a Hot Topic exclusive (!@#%$£^*)!!!!!!). Gah, I really hate how Funko does their exclusives.... scented CC as a Gamestop exclusive, sure, cool, but why have Bluebelle only at one store? >_< I guess that explains why she wasn't listed with the others in the original leak, though.

Still wish they'd made keyrings of all six, but if it can only be two, I'm glad they picked my favourite two. :> Definitely getting these, just hope my local-ish comic store can get their hands on Bluebelle... sometimes they stock exclusives, so fingers crossed...

Yes, you can get flexible acrylic paint (it's in the cosplay aisle at Michael's) that should work well.

Thanks, Hasbro! I hate them! I'm not a fan of anthro ponies, and their upright poses make the PL style look even more un-equine. I'm sick of the plastic clothing and non-brushable hair, and the pearly plastic everything's made of is weird, to say the least.

Maybe not but if you look closely at the neck it looks like they've tried to make it go up and down.  (Sorry, this was the biggest picture I could find so it's hard to see)

If they can transform from pony to anthro that would be really sweet. I'm just worried Applejack will get left out because the line is about fashion the way Rarity got left out of GoH because she's not as action oriented.

They still exist, we just got a 12-pack release of the larger sizes, I guess they're trying to seperate hair play toys from fashion toys?
I do wish they had brushable hair though.
Good eye on the joint! It's nice to see more articulation then, I was afraid the legs would only go up and down!

Honestly? The hair has been overwhelmingly terrible for the past few years, and seems to be getting worse. I'd rather have non-brushables than brushables with stiff, greasy hair that I can't make look decent no matter how hard I try. If they can't do brushable hair right, they shouldn't do it at all, imo.

Also I don't like anthros but these are less anthros and more bipedal animals, so they're ok in my book. The moment they start having hands and human bodies is the moment they lose me.

Nobody is validating bad quality hair, but the fact remains that My Little Pony is not an action figure franchise, it's a brushable hair toy at its core.

Hasbro need to make more effort on the hair quality, that's all. Then everyone is happy.

I adore Ghostbusters, so I just HAD to have her. The pink/green combo is a little eye-searing, but it works for the character. The green is spot on for ectoplasm. Glow-in-the-dark would have been cool, but I'm not really complaining. Overall, a lovely collector's item!

Twinkle Eyes are back!...Kind of! But not really...!

https://www.mlpmerch.com/2020/12/secret-rings-blind-bags-revealed.html

There's a new set of gemstone-inspired pony blind boxes with some new ponies obviously taking inspiration from the Twinkle Eye set. The figure is removable from the ring.

Quote
Includes figures inspired by the My Little Pony: Pony Life show, as well as classic My Little Pony characters: Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash (featuring a fun sparkly finish!) Masquerade, Locket Key, Fluttershy, Magic Mimics, Bright Sun, Applejack, Fizzleshake, Rarity, and Sweet Sugar Pop (Each sold separately. Subject to availability.)

Locket is really the only one resembling her old self. The rest of the ponies seem to have different designs, such as "Fizzleshake" being pink, and "Magic Mimics" being... blue? "Sweet Sugar Pop" is blue at least. Here's Locket Key:

Upcoming Cadance brushable. Article says she should be around the size of that large styling Rarity from the first wave of G4.5 ponies. Kinda cute but I think I'm probably skipping on any G4.5s this large. Largest I'm willing to go with them is the normal fashion style size.

Wth is this? Also, they remind me of ring pops and those "crystal animal" toys. I think they were like LPS or something. Weird. Sweet Pop is probably the closest to her old self. Also, I was hoping this would be Basic Fun showing off their TEs. Bright Sun and Fizzleshake look completely new.

Post by: MintyMyndi on December 17, 2020, 04:54:25 AM
Low-poly ponies? I think that's pretty neat. I'm not so sure about the blind bag aspect of them; perhaps they'll have an external letter or a sneaky way to peek (assuming there's more than one color of coating)!

I guess I know why they chose Twinkle Eyes, but they don't translate well here. For a figure to be translucent, it's quite difficult to do multi-colored pieces, and with the scale of the figures, they really only want to do one piece per mane and tail (I wonder what they did to Rainbow Dash?). They would have to choose which color was most important to the overall color scheme, and for the most part I think they did a good job. I would've made the tail a different color than the mane to increase color variety, but that's just me. I'm all about the accuracy.

Have a look at this list and tell me what you'd change!
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

The Sparkle Ponies would've worked well for this, with them having solid-color manes. There's the two different hair color variants with Napper and Star Hopper, but that's just a matter of picking one and running with it. The Glow 'n' Shows would've made cool chase figures, too!

My main issue with these is that stock-image Fizzy/Fizzleshake is magenta. Will they fix it before release? Probably not. It's a shame, too; I really like Fizzy's colors and pink for her mane would translate better than most of the other colors! Also, Mimic/Magic Mimics is a bit too yellow for my taste, but perhaps she's greener in person, like Surprise's hair color. I don't know what Masquerade will look like, but I think it makes sense to be yellow with green hair. I worry for Rainbow Dash, though. They also didn't use the proper eye colors for some of them, but that's a minor detail.

That said, I'm looking forward to these guys, but I don't know if I'll aim to collect them all.

Those are the Cadance, Rarity, and Sunset Shimmer from that promo image a while ago. I'd bet money that that's Twilight, but the other two excite me! The image source implies them to be Gusty and Fizzy, but there aren't enough details for me to say for certain. The mint green one, Fizzy or not, will be the first one I go after! This looks like a discount release with the lack of packaging, unpainted hair, and single-colored symbols. I plan to add details to mine, but if they're cheap enough, I'll buy doubles and keep them as-is.

Gusty, well, fine...but that is a bit of an insult to Fizzy. Looks more like they gave Minty a horn and redid her symbol.

The beauty of the TE set, aside the obvious TWINKLE EYES...is the four colour hair. But if you're going to knock it down to one colour, you'd think it'd at least be dark pink.

Yes, I know this is PL/reboot/whatever. BUT still.

Perhaps? Perhaps not? I'll wait to see what Hasbro says. Pity its not on a mishmash pose. I would have grabbed that. I'd rather have that be a new character.

These really do look cheap with the lack of hair highlights. Fizzy's one thing (I agree her hair should've been darker, body too) but Cadance is almost unrecognizable. If they'd at least given them *one* hair streak they'd look more like themselves, IMO.

I think her symbol looks weird cause they didn't colour in the froth/foam. :/ I don't mind that they reduced it to just one float - I don't think they could fit in any more without making it difficult to tell what her symbol actually is - but c'mon, Hasbro, at least finish the symbols. >_<

They really do look so lazy and strange with the uncoloured in symbols and only one hair colour. As Carrehz said, Princess Cadance looks completely unrecognisable, I had no idea that was meant to be her at first glance. Same with Sunset Shimmer. You'd think they'd at least get the g4 characters to look correct, since those are the ponies kids these days will be used to.

I don't know if this is the thread where someone was looking for potion ponies, but I saw these today on clearance at Target. There was Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, and several Potion Novas. I thought about grabbing them all in case someone on here wanted 'em, but I didn't find the original item I went in for, and didn't feel like standing in line so I didn't. I could always go back tomorrow if someone did want them...I'll have time to kill in that area.

Well, the McDonald's ponies aren't in the US. I look at a Facebook fan page in addition to the Happy Meal site to predict the next toy; the fan page said that the next toys, which came out yesterday, would be Hasbro, which seemed promising! Alas, we've got Hasbro Gaming toys in the US for now. Sad me is sad.

Has anybody posted all the Secret Rings yet? There's an image of all of the first wave. Of course, Rainbow Dash's hair is all red...
Targets are starting to stock them, but of course the one closest to me isn't! If yours has them, do check them out- I want firsthand pictures and confirmation of Fizzleshake's coloration!
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

And here's a bit of speculation. Here's an image that was found on Taobao (?) which seems to show not only a second wave of these, but (potentially) the G5 logo!
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
The logo speaks for itself, but note the magenta bases and the twelve ponies in the bottom right. The bottom six are clearly the Mane 6, but who are those six above them? They're inconsistent with the ones we've already seen! They could just be prototype renders, though.

Masquerade. I wish they'd chosen a greener shade for her hair, but it looks aqua enough, I guess.

I'm pretty sure it says pony, but there's just a star behind it.


I should correct myself, since I apparently can't count- there are FIVE new characters shown in that image, not six. If they're keeping the Twinkle-Eye inspiration, I'll take a guess at each. Note that this is just speculation!
Left to right:
-Pink/purple- Whizzer. She was frequently paired with Masquerade in the cartoon, so I feel she's a likely choice for a release like this.
-Blue/pink- Sweet Stuff- I'd actually be surprised if she wasn't- the body color's spot-on!
-Purple/purple- Mayyybe Galaxy? She's a unicorn and vaguely fits, I guess... I don't know who else it would be.
-Orange/pink- I'm thinking Party Time, but you can see that this one has green eyes... They weren't 100% accurate on the first wave, though, so I wouldn't put it past them.
-Yellow/aqua- Not very sure on this one, but her eyes seem to be red, so I'm thinking Tic Tac Toe. Quackers is the runner-up, but that's only if they don't do Tic Tac Toe. She'd be a stretch, but they do seem to favor the front hair color over others and maybe referenced a yellowed one... Again, it's a stretch!

It's hard to guess because of the single-colored hair and the overall inaccuracy of the first set. Does anybody have any different guesses?

If (big if!) these are all correct, that'd leave Gingerbread, Speedy, Sky Rocket, and Quackers (or, less likely, Tic Tac Toe) for a potential third wave, but I don't know if they're even keeping the theme, so grain of salt. I don't even have any first wave ponies, so perhaps I should slow down a bit and at least see if I like these before I get excited for new ones.

I agree w/ MintyMyndi that it has a star icon behind it from the background design, making it less legible.. it makes me angry as a designer. >/

It has pictures of the first wave mixed in, so I think that's what they're referring to since those are the ones out right now. It would make sense for the waves to have the same number of characters, but that's not always the case.

The chinese is too small/blurry for me to see the characters correctly to attempt to translate.. but there is a 5 by the top row, and 6 by the bottom row. So there's some rhyme or reason to why there are 11 displayed. ...... maybe?

The photo also shows magenta rings instead of blue, so I'm thinking it's possibly a second wave.

If it's a second wave and they're continuing with the G1 borrowing... I thought maybe North Star, Wind Whistler, Posey, and Magic Star, but I guess the first ones were all based on Twinkle Eyes huh? :lol: Whizzer, Sweetstuff, [purple one], Tic Tac Toe, [yellow one]? Not sure who the purple and yellow one could be if we keep up with the TE names. Maybe Galaxy and Party Time? Quackers?? The colours don't have to line up 100% since Fizzy isn't pink either. :rolleyes:

I should correct myself, since I apparently can't count- there are FIVE new characters shown in that image, not six. If they're keeping the Twinkle-Eye inspiration, I'll take a guess at each. Note that this is just speculation!
Left to right:
-Pink/purple- Whizzer. She was frequently paired with Masquerade in the cartoon, so I feel she's a likely choice for a release like this.
-Blue/pink- Sweet Stuff- I'd actually be surprised if she wasn't- the body color's spot-on!
-Purple/purple- Mayyybe Galaxy? She's a unicorn and vaguely fits, I guess... I don't know who else it would be.
-Orange/pink- I'm thinking Party Time, but you can see that this one has green eyes... They weren't 100% accurate on the first wave, though, so I wouldn't put it past them.
-Yellow/aqua- Not very sure on this one, but her eyes seem to be red, so I'm thinking Tic Tac Toe. Quackers is the runner-up, but that's only if they don't do Tic Tac Toe. She'd be a stretch, but they do seem to favor the front hair color over others and maybe referenced a yellowed one... Again, it's a stretch!

It's hard to guess because of the single-colored hair and the overall inaccuracy of the first set. Does anybody have any different guesses?

If (big if!) these are all correct, that'd leave Gingerbread, Speedy, Sky Rocket, and Quackers (or, less likely, Tic Tac Toe) for a potential third wave, but I don't know if they're even keeping the theme, so grain of salt. I don't even have any first wave ponies, so perhaps I should slow down a bit and at least see if I like these before I get excited for new ones.
Just noticed this comment. :silly:

Just saw the Smashin' Fashion set with PP/DJ at the target that actually stocks things! The rings were displayed similarly at my store as well. I got AJ, TS, PP, and then Locket and Fizzle. Lots of pink.
I also saw the Cadance hairplay toy. She is not Magic Mane sized and is instead fashion-style sized.

I found new things today including the Secret Rings.  There are a lot of pics so I will put them in the spoilers.

I found a box of Cutie Mark Crew at Dollar Tree last time I went but not today.  I forgot to post the pic last time though.

Cadance
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.



Cadance's eyes are gorgeous here, though I'm still not a fan of the Pony Life toys. There's something about the shape of their snouts where I think they look kind of like pigs rather than horses, especially in regards to the pink ponies. Regardless, I think this is one of the nicest G4.5's out so far. Any plans for these to feature new characters, not just characters from FiM or Pony Life?

Also Applejack saying "Lit!" That just doesn't sound like something she would say. I would actually think "Hustle" is more the hardworking farm pony's speed and I could definitely imagine Dashie saying something is "Lit".

Yup! There was some talk about a partial script a while back, but I don't know anything about it. It supposedly centered on Baby Pink Sunsparkle and the Celebration Castle, but that may have just been speculation.
It was meant for a theatrical release at first, then was delayed, then downgraded to direct to video, then was either outright cancelled or altered into A Charming Birthday, though that latter theory is unlikely.
You can read a bit about it at the bottom of this page: https://web.archive.org/web/20030226123629/http://www.media.hasbro.com/pl/page.release/dn/default.cfm?release=124
Here's the poster which, looking at it now, is definitely a mock-up, with symbolless Pinkie Pie being the only pony drawn for it (the rest probably slapped on to get an idea of placement) and the font, Ravie, being one that comes default either on Windows or with Microsoft Office or something... Usually they'll use paid fonts, alter more common ones, or even draw its own unique lettering.

At Target they had hair styling Cadence, the cake themed blind bag set, secret rings, smashin fashion Twilight, and potion princess Luna who was on sale for $4.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
Twilight's outfit is completely cat themed with the paw shoes, paw on the dress, and the ear headbands fit over her normal ears. She has pretty good articlation and if she had elbow articulation she would be way better than GoH. The heads are jointed and put on the same so head swaps with them may be possible to get a anthro G4 and articulated elbow G4.5.

Here's also the blind bag I got, her symbol is a popsicle.
They seem to have codes, here's what was on her package. Not sure what part is relevant:
V-3689A
03171
If anyone has the code off theirs to share, that'd be cool. I would like to crack the code

Also, the pink stuff you have to soak off them is awful. I finally got it off after soaking her in hot water with dawn dish soap.

I bought the full set of ring pop bling bags tonight. Here’s my thoughts on them.

 I tried to grab the codes for you starrynights, but unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be any real pattern. :( Thankfully, if you can find a full box it appears it comes with the complete set if you want to avoid guessing. Here are the codes mine had, just in case someone smarter than me sees a pattern I missed. ;)
The V-3689A is the same across all the boxes. It’s the second part that has some variation.
03181 - Sweet Sugar Pop
03211 - Rarity, Pinkie Pie
03191 - Fizzleshake, Bright Sun, Locket Key
03221 - Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Magic Mimics, Masquerade
03171 - Applejack
03231 - Twilight Sparkle
The repeating numbers and the fact that me and starrynights had different codes for Sweet Sugar Pop doesn’t give me much hope that there is a code to crack here.

I also took a pic of how they were arranged in the box when I bought them. I took care as I was opening them to keep them in the same place. I have a feeling they are probably packaged randomly though...

The box makes for a nice display! If you do decide to buy the whole set, definitely try and snag the box too!

The pink paint on these SUCKS by the way. I’ve scrubbed and scrubbed, but there is still pink paint in some of their crevices. :pout: They’re already in a blind package and wrapped in a white bag Hasbro, there’s no need to hide them under a weird layer of paint too. I might try filling up my sink and letting them soak overnight to see if the last bits will flake off.

I’m also disappointed that the colors are not as pictured on the box for Mimic and Fizzy.(I’m just going to call them by their G1 names for now. :P ) Why does Hasbro actively go out of their way to avoid green??! I know Mimic is kind of a chartreuse yellow/green, so I can maybe see what happened there. But why is Fizzy pink with pink hair? We already have Pinkie Pie for that color combo. I’m also salty about Mimic because the box shows her as green with orange hair. If that’s how the toy looked she would have passed for one of my oc ponies. :P

Overall these are really cute toys though. One of the more creative blind bag gimmicks I’ve seen from MLP in a while! Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, and Twilight Sparkle all have a glitter in their plastic that makes them just a little more sparkly than the others, so I wonder if they’re kind of like the chase characters? They’re really pretty either way! I really appreciate the the TE set is getting some love! The set really does look like rock candy, hopefully kids will know not to eat them! :lol:

Why does Hasbro actively go out of their way to avoid green??!

Slightly off topic maybe, but last month I saw a documentary called 'The Toys That Made Christmas Great' (I think), and there was a bit where they were talking about Power Rangers toys. And one of the developers (?) for the toy line said when they first saw the Power Ranger designs, they were worried because one of them was green, and went on to explain that for some reason, green toys don't usually sell as well as other colours, and they have no idea why that is. (and then went on to explain it turned out okay in that case, cause kids wanted the whole team, but I digress :P)

Dunno if that goes for green ponies too, but it reminded me of the lack of 'em... I know we've theorized before that maybe green ponies shelfwarm, thought it was interesting to hear about it from someone in the toy industry.

That said, though, I don't really see that that explains the lack of green blind bags :s It's not like they'd shelfwarm like a not-blind-packaged toy would, right?

I dunno what's so bad about makeup for kids. Kids like coloring and want to color on themselves. Better to use something made for skin instead of markers. The only thing I can see objectionable is how it isn't seen as acceptable for boys to do.

Canenco will be releasing (https://www.marketscreener.com/quote/stock/WILDBRAIN-LTD-18206330/news/WildBrain-Hasbro-Consumer-Products-Expands-Partnership-with-WildBrain-CPLG-on-eOne-Brands-32276009/) G5 plush, jewelry, and make-up for kids in their typical stomping grounds.

I am dead in the water since that article said G5 will make more products one needs during these unstable times and one of the first things announced is bling and make-up for kids. Yes, that's what a family on low income needs during the pandemic, not soaps, masks or even some kind of baking set to make your own bread - nah, your daughter needs to practice her contouring :lol:

Gotta look fab' in our post-apocalyptic future.  :lol:
(Jokes aside, I'm not a huge fan of makeup for kids but that's a whole different subject)

Yeah, I'm with you. I disagree with how make-up is pushed on little girls in this playful way. Same thing for babydolls and practicing how to be a mommy. Let kids be kids.

I vowed for 2021 not to derail threads with my soapbox rants quite as often, but this is such a pet peeve of mine:
Make-up is not about creative expression in kids. If it was it would be pushed onto boys just as hard. It's about preparing girls to buy beauty products and obsess about their faces and how pretty or ugly they are (which then turns into buying even more beauty stuff).

About coloring... as a kid I had coloring books and actual finger and facepaints. Not some Toddlers and Tiaras Little Miss Pretty Tiny Topmodel stuff. A kid can paint her face with nontoxic colors without trying to look like mommy (or let's face it, some youtube MUA). End of rant, I swear.

Nail polish and a touch of lip gloss are ok for the little ones. Anything else can wait till they're probably 12 or 13, if they want.

Those gem ponies are growing on me! Speaking of blind bags, I’m curious, did anyone see wide releases of the Potion Surprise blind bag batch 2 set? The little balloon shaped guys? I had a look back through the rest of this thread and didn’t see much mention of them. I was really looking forward to those ones and haven’t seen them anywhere near me. Targets everywhere had batch 1 earlier last year but those didn’t appeal to
me much and the second set did not seem to be well distributed. I saw a box of batch 1 of the potion surprise blind bags pop up at a Fred Meyers recently, and since they sometimes seem to get toys after they’ve finished their main distribution run at other stores I’m wondering if I’ll see more. Has anyone seen the batch 2 ones popping up in dollar stores, Tuesday Morning, etc? Is there anyone living in a place that is simply drowning in little round balloon horses that doesn’t want them, and maybe we could work out a trade? I’ve got a few G1 doubles, hit me up!

To add helpful info here, I also saw a WALL full of potion surprise brushables  in the toy section of a local Ross earlier this week, going for $1.79 each! Good time to stock up if you want to try customizing some, perhaps!

Went to Joann's today and found a G4 Diamond Painting kit. It was $30 (on sale, too! I think normally $40) so i skipped it.

Sadly, no. They never were released around here. It's too bad because I wanted discord.

Where are people finding that molded hair PL set? The one with Twilight, Starlight Glimmer etc? Is it a Target exclusive?

I'm pretty sure I picked mine up from Amazon when it was first released? Or Target, but this was a few months ago by now. Never saw it in stores.

I really hope I can get my hands on some of these-they're so adorable! It may be worth it to me to get a whole box for myself. :) I'll think about getting two boxes/looking at prices when the time arises to distribute here.

It's not Hasbro, it's third party merch based on FIM. That said if these are successful I can see them branching out into other fan favorite characters like Trixie and Luna.

Still overdone and boring to have these characters shoved down consumer's throats for years on end.

True but if it's merch for the show by a new company you kinda gotta expect them to do the main characters first. It would be like them doing a series of Avengers figures and not doing Captain America, Iron Man, or the Hulk.

That's understandable, but it says they featured all the characters except for Rarity and Princess Celestia more than once (3 times, in the case of Rainbow Dash, if the picture is any indication), so instead of doing that, they could have used those extra molds to include another half-dozen characters.

Those are cool poses, I love all of rainbow dash's, especially the lightning one!  I wonder how large these are.

eh, for licensed stuff like this, the main 6 thing doesn't bug me as much. I can see them wanting to make sure the series is a hit before they start making other characters that maybe wouldn't be as popular. At least these have unique and interesting poses instead of just the same old generic standing pose.

Though I don't quite understand why they needed to make three Rainbow Dashes. :s

Oh funny.

I had been thinking in the funko thread where everyone was complaining about quality... that a popmart made something we would be nice quality, for a decent price.

Popmart stuff is sold at places like My Plastic Heart, and Strange Cat Toys.. (I'm sure other places too). Which they might not carry all their stuff (but we could ask?).

Can we look beyond mane 6 for once? I'd prefer Hasbro team up with PopMart over poor quality companies like Funko. It's a good step in the right direction to get us some collector items in unique poses, and hopefully maybe we can get some g1 stuff or next gen stuff too.

Because they infected other companies with their stupid obsession. That or other companies think that's the only things Hasblo is capable of making.
