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.

It appears we have our first DVD release for the Japanese MLP dub. The disc comes with a mere two episodes, The Ticket Master and Bridle Gossip, but it does come with a mini towel, and the episodes should be uncut as opposed to the broadcast version. The DVD will cost 1575JPY (to be fair, this is a steal compared to most native anime releases) and is set to release on Dec. 18th in Japan. You can find the store link by clicking here or the link above, but I’m not sure if Shinseido ships internationally.
Incidentally, May the Best Pet Win aired in Japan yesterday, you can look at any of the previous Japony Monday articles to find it if you missed it.
