Vilsco Electronics Concepts
All About MLP Merch found some wonderful pieces of concept art for licensed MLP products. We’re not sure if they’ll ever make it to market, but they’ve already presented about MLP with Hasbro, so it’s quite possible you could be seeing these in the future! Head on over the break for additional images.

Q: when the new equestria girls dolls come out do you think that they would be out in about spring/summer of next year?
They’re probably going to come out shortly after the movie does, which will be out in theaters at some point this summer. They’ll definitely have the new wave of EqG toys everywhere by the Christmas shopping season.

Q: Do you know when the MLP McDonalds toys will rotate? Like say one week Twilight and Rarity come out, who will be the next week or something like that. Do you know from previous MLP McDonalds experiences how that would work?
OFFICIALLY they get two boxes per week: 2 boy toys and 2 girl toys. Second week they get another set of boxes with 2 more girl toys and 2 more boy toys. So on and so forth until the end of the promotion, then they do whatever toy line is next.
What usually ends up happening with pony though is that they get hit really hard and the managers end up ordering more toys so that they don’t run out. So they end up cycling through the 4 weeks of toys by the end of the second week.
So if you want to get every toy possible, go to really out of the way McDonald’s (like at truck stops), have a friend that works at McDonald’s grab some for you, or roughly every 2-3 days and say “get me whatever you have.”
Of course, the best time to go is during non-peak hours if you want them to dig through the toy box for you. So right at 11 when they serve lunch, 2pm-5pm and after 7pm. You don’t have to get a happy meal, you can buy a toy separately for about $1 a piece. But get some apple pies while you are they as they are delicious. And vaguely pony themed.

Q: Will McDonald's toys only be offered in the States? Will restaurants in Canada offer them?
It depends on your individual country. Check out your country’s McDonald’s page to see if it says pony is coming soon! It’s possible that they’ll always just do it later in the year and it won’t be up there just yet, too.

Q: I emailed Hasbro asking if they could tell me the names of the new EqG dolls that have never been seen before and they responded saying that information on dolls might change before release and the information wasn't available? Does this mean that they wait until close to release to decide on a final name for their characters?
When you contact Hasbro for information, they can only tell you info that’s publicly available. Which is nothing so far!
When they’re ready to officially announce it, they will. Unless you get a picture of official images for online retailers or an image of the finished product in packaging, there’s no way to know until then.

Q: make a master-post of what you might be able to buy at walmart or target ( or any other stores ) mayhaps?
That would be extremely difficult to do! It all depends on what your local store does and has. My main store while at college had a G3.5 playset on clearance for more than a year. I’ve had people tell me that their main Walmart stopped carrying ponies all together because they just never sold. So even if I post what they SHOULD have, it probably won’t match your individual store, as each manager has different ideas as to what needs to be stocked and each area sells different stuff.
Stores might carry back stock of older toys for quite awhile, or they just don’t get around to ordering new stuff. But you can assume that they SHOULD carry the new stuff. Exclusives to a certain store tend to be a special toy line and I’ll post about that in the toy line page.

Funko Big Mac on the Way
Like the past few Funko releases, there’s images of the prototypes floating around. Big Mac looks to have painted hooves and hair, with the plastic for his body color and his harness. No word on when he’ll come out, but likely as the same time as Applejack. [Source: EqD]

Q: I looked in the Target site and the bagged ponies don't appear. Is it likely that they just left them out and they could possibly be in my local Target..?
Not everything at Target is stocked online! “Cheap” stuff tends not to be listed online, as it’s generally not worth it to ship it out. A good example is that section of $1-ish stuff that’s always by the front doors.
They will definitely have the item number in the local store’s computer. You could ask someone who works in the toy section if they’ve seen them. It’s possible that there’s a box in the back that they haven’t opened up yet.

Q: Will the bagged ponies be available at all targets?
In theory, yes! But individual store managers can always choose not to, of course. As long as your local store has a habit of getting new pony stuff, you should be okay.

Cheese Sandwhich Blind Bag on Taobao
Once again, Taobao is leaking pictures of upcoming blindbags. Most likely, this will be part of a miniature collection, as it’s not matching any styles of known upcoming blind bags.
