The film is slated for release June 13.

I’ve written here before about Kenner and it’s licensed merch. What many people forget is that there’s been quite a few semi-successful toy lines based on adult IPs.

Quite a few kids liked watching the rape-allegory movies Alien and Aliens, so a animated show was being developed. Of course, some people figured out how ridiculous this was and the project got canned, but the toy designs remained, so Kenner sold them, anyways. Read more →

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.

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.

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.

In generations past, some ponies were sold with simply a plastic bag as the packaging. Now this trend has popped up in G4 with ponies at Target.

They’re for sale for $3 each, and only comes with one pony. They don’t have as much eye details and their head mold is the same. The cheaper toy is excellent for a quick grab for kids or for creating custom toys.

Currently there’s Pinkie, Rainbow, Rarity, Cheerilee, Applejack and Lily Blossom. It’s possible that other ponies could be included or this type of toy could expand into other stores, but right now they’re only in Target.
