Toy Fair 2013 isn’t until February, but a catalogue talking about the toys within has been leaked and is available to see online. You can check it out yourself at the source link (excellent if you collect other toys, too), but all things pony will be covered here.
Page 65 shows the Crystal Empire logo, a ballet dress with Rainbow Dash on it, and a girl playing with a castle playset.
The playset is further shown on page 211. It says, oddly, that Crystal Empire will launch in 2013, but we’ve been seeing it since this summer. “The brand is set to continue within most major licensing categories,” it says, referring to MLP.
More after the page break.
Of course, we’re interested in that playset.
That’s a new castle (with some reused accessories) and that’s a winged Twilight Sparkle. She has wings, a plasti dress, and very long legs, with a foreleg bent as if walking. This is clearly a new mold, and one more nail in the alicorn Twilight debate.
Page 214 also mentions that John Adams crafts will have some MLP kits in 2013, including glitter cutie markets, a trinket box, a “scratch and sparkle set,” a paint and style pony and “Fuzzy Felt.”
More information will come out once the fair starts up in February 10-13.
Special thanks to Doc for helping me go through this big file.
