  • New Ponies and Merchandise
    It has been ages since I made a post dedicated to what official products have been recently spotted, but I’m having a bit of trouble keeping tabs on things myself so this post is for my reference as well.

    Shirts:
    This G1 My Little Pony shirt was spotted for sale in the men’s section at Target (reported by Derbygirl on the Arena). I’ve got to say I LOVE it and will be buying this.

    There has been an uproar within the Brony community about this shirt found at Wal-Mart. They are up in arms demanding that it be pulled from shelves due to it showing G1 ponies and not G4 ponies. If you are easily offended by anti G1 commentary, I’d avoid the comments section on EQD. They are pretty harsh. Personally, I think the shirt is pretty clever. Mixing the G1s in a Brony reference, whether intentional or not, is a bit of a statement. Looks like G1s are loving and tolerating the Bronies.  I won’t be purchasing this one as I’ve said my piece on message tees, but I can still appreciate it.

     
    New Vinyl Ponies look to be on the Horizon for collectors from FUNKO. This Rainbow Dash was recently spotted on Ebay along with some other prototype figures online. I’m just hoping they will be the same scale as the regular Hasbro released ponies with brushable manes. I’d love to display them with their accessories and playsets.
     
    A talking storyteller Princess Cadance is shown on Target.com, but isn’t available to order at the moment. I recently opened my Twilight Sparkle and Pinkie Pie Storytellers and they are actually really neat.
    If you need more Pony ornaments to deck your Christmas Tree, Toys R Us will be offering a FIM set.
     
    I am still waiting for these to turn up in the States. If they don’t show up soon, I will most likely resort to having them imported.
     
    There are tons of other My Little Pony products available at your local retailer and www.HasbroToyshop.com has stocked the most recent wave of pony singles (including Luna and Trixie) so if you haven’t found them in your area you can snag them online. Plus, I’ve heard that this wave is showing up at Big Lots stores as well.
     
    Happy Pony hunting!
