Q: i emailed BaB a few weeks ago and this was the response i got "Thank you for contacting us. At this time, we do not have plans to release additional Ponies. However, we are always open to suggestions from our Guests and we will be happy to pass this along to our Development Team for review. Thank you again for sharing this with us. Please let us know if we can further assist you! " i really hope they do release more though and maybe they mean just not this year. i need a Rarity.
Hasbro once said (through emails from PR) that blind bags would never come to America.
Logically they have to have plans for more pony, as they have to make a ton to meet the obviously upcoming demand. But of course they can’t say anything ahead of time without a higher up’s okay. We’ll see what they have upcoming for their first quarter, which should be when they do more.

Q: The associate when I bought my Fluttershy told me as though it was fact that Rarity and AJ were coming in 2014. Again just hearsay, but he said it with certainty instead of saying it was likely so maybe they've been told something.
It’s sort of a given that they’re going to do the rest of the mane 6. It’s whatever’s after that that’s still up in the air.
WIll AJ have a hat this time?

Q: Any news on a new BaB for MLP??
When I bought Fluttershy the other day, the associate said that it was pretty much a given they’d do Rarity and Applejack, but that’s not “official” enough for me to go shouting it on the rooftops.
It’s super likely they’ll make more characters considering how much money they’re making on this.

Rarity and AJ Keychains Finally Hit Market
A long, long time ago, when G4 first started, Hasbro showed off some “crystal” keychains of Pinkie, Rainbow, Rarity and Applejack at the NYC Toy Fair. RD and PP had a very limited release in stores, with AJ and Rarity never making it to stores.
Now all four keychains are available as part of the Rainbow Power selection of toys. They’re found on shelves in places like Toys R Us, with the older ones for sale at resell stores like 5 Below.
Thanks to Adventures in Ponyville for sending this in.

The Funko “Mystery Mini” appears to have changed a lot from the initial press photos. Instead of everyone being 2/24, there are now five regularly-colored variants who are each 1/24, with black-coated Fluttershy also being made 1/24 to make room. Nobody knows yet whether the glow-in-the-dark variants are still a thing.
Lots of close-up photo galleries linked to here: http://mlparena.com/index.php/topic,341400.msg1028304.html#msg1028304

At SDCC, there were “bricks” for sale that were a con exclusive. Turns out that they were just uncut blanks for phone cases. They’re made out of a squishy material and add a bit of bulk to your phone.
The covers are available for iPhones and Samsung’s Galaxy phones. Right now they’re available at Hot Topic but could pop up in various other stores soon.

Q: I know Funko Applejack will be released next year, but are we getting Rarity and Twilight vinyls anytime soon?
Assumedly, yes. We can assume that every mane 6 character will get a toy, but we really don’t know in what order or when.

Q: Any word or hints as to when and where exactly the Cutie Mark Crusaders and Friends Collection will be released/for sale?
There doesn’t seem to be any sort of release date. Things can pop up on websites months before they will be released, so we don’t know quite yet!
We will definitely be letting you guys know as soon as we find out.

MLP on Sale for TRU Holiday Season
The Toys ‘R Us holiday flyer/catalogue came out, and pony is included.
The prices are valid November 3-23 (starting Sunday and ending week before Thanksgiving) and may not necessarily be reflected online. But this is great if you want to get some shopping done early and avoiding the Black Friday rush.
Electronic Princess Twilight Sparkle: $39.99 (down from $49.99 “normal” price and $64.99 list price)
TRU Exclusive Nightmare Moon: $19.99 (down from $22.99)
TRU Exclusive Fan Favorites Collection (the one with Derpy): $24.99 (down from $36.99)
Equestria Girls doll and pony set: $16.99 (down from $19.99 “normal” price and $24.99 list price).
It’s entirely possible that additional MLP toys will go on sale that aren’t listed here and the only way to know is to check it out online or in person. The prices will be discounted for 3 weeks and don’t require a coupon or code. There’s no limits to how many MLP toys you can buy in-person, though limits can always be applied online at any time.
The electronic AliTwi is being pushed quite hard as a “hot” Christmas gift, so it’s better to get it now than later.
The front of the catalogue has a coupon for $10 off a purchase of $100 or more.

As you may know, I’m one of the editors for Derpy News. I and a bunch of other people have been spending our free time delivering up-to-the-minute pony news; the merch content is mirrored here. This page wouldn’t be as great as it is know if it wasn’t for my friends at DN always keeping an eye out for news.
So if you could check out our Patreon campaign, that would be fantastic. The link is to the Derpy News page that lays out the plan and how it works. You can spend as much or as little as you want.
Your funds goes towards running Derpy News, Derpy TV, Wander Over Yonder News and continuing coverage on MLP, WoY and soon additional animated shows such as Littlest Pet Shop and Gravity Falls.
Of course, if it’s not in your current means to financially support us, you can always share this post on Tumblr or the DN post on whatever social media you want.
Thank you all!
