This is a first finding McDonald’s toys on Taobao in the realm of G4. Vinyl Scratch has a molded main and a rooted tail made out of cheap hair with colors that don’t really match her mane, so it definitely fits what we’ve seen before.
2011 and 2012 had McDonald’s toys, while 2013 only had them at Burger Kings overseas. It’s very possible that they’ll make toys again for 2014, as MLP is still a very popular show and it’ll get kids asking parents to go to store. Not to mention all the adult collectors who’ll just buy the toys out-right and probably buy some burgers and shakes, too.
Hot Topic is now selling the next batch of Funko vinyl figures. This time it’s alicorn Twilight and Trixie, complete with hat and cape. Like before, there’s a 1 in 24 chance that the one you get will be the sparkly, translucent variant.
