• Japan's MLP Pop-up Store to Return on August 25th!


    I swear, one of these days I'll be able to afford to fly to Japan for one of these events…

    Right. Be bitter later about not being rich. Report on MLP news now.

    For those My Little Pony fans in the beautiful country of Japan, you're in luck! The My Little Pony Pop-Up store will be returning from August 25th though September 7th! This Pop-up store will be located in the huge Japanese toy store Kiddy Land - Harajuku (address: 6-1-9 Jingu-mae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo 150-0001).

    To compare the size of the store, it's about the same size as the former Times Square location of Toys "R" Us or Hamleys in London. This store is huge!

    To celebrate the occasion, Hasbro and Sanrio have teamed up to produce limited edition My Little Pony/Kiki & Lala merchandise. Like Mugs, iPhone Cases, canvas prints, and a whole bunch of other stuff I can't identify on the flyer released by the My Little Pony Japan twitter.

    In addition to the crossover merchandise, there will be other limited edition items available for purchase created by Hasbro's Japanese MLP Licensed partners. Like for instance a new "Summer Special" variant cover by s_bis for the Phase 6 Translated edition of MLP: Pony Tales Volume 2! And two canvas prints created in collaboration between Phase 6 and SEGA Toys featuring Sara Richard's covers for MLP: Microseries issues 8 & 10!

    If you happen to find yourself in Tokyo between August 25th and September 7th, consider stopping by and checking this place out!

    Now if only I could figure out what the QR code on the flyer is talking about…

    Special thanks to Stinken1 and Ayu  for the heads up and the information!
