• UNBOXING REVIEW: My Little Pony A New Generation Movie Box 2

    Coming back from a nearly week long vacation often leaves one playing catch up. Especially at work.

    So many e-mails...

    However, every so often, something ends up waiting for me that is actually fandom related. And from Hasbro. For free.

    I'm very curious to see what free products Hasbro has sent me this time.

    I also had no idea this box was coming. So coming back this from New York Comic Con was a huge surprise. 

    Eh, I've seen the film 30 times now. Let's go unbox the second My Little Pony: A New Generation pony box!

    … Well, it's definitely a different box. The contents of this one are completely different than the last one!

    I love the mini-poster for the film. Really nice touch that wasn't included in the last one.

    Let's see what else is different and isn't two toys I've already covered.

    FOOD!!! Well, it's cheese flavored popcorn. So it's a snack. But a delicious snack from Popcornopolis

    You can get 6 cones for $44.99 from their website.

    It's an interesting choice to include in this box for My Little Pony. But it makes sense once I pulled out the next time on the list.

    These are custom, disposable, foldable, My Little Pony medium scoop popcorn buckets.

    It came in a bundle of four.

    Again, these are custom. They are not being sold at retail. But they do make for a delightful theme movie watch party!

    Full disclosure, I ate the popcorn out of a cereal bowl. I couldn't bring myself to use these.

    Let's see what else is in the box!

    You know, I was really hoping for Crystal Adventures Hitch Trailblazer. 

    Especially since I got Pipp and Zipp last time. And I also proceeded to purchase Sunny and Izzy after the last unboxing.

    So I won't be going into detail about this one. 

    Same with Pipp Petals. She was in the last box, so I won't be covering her this time.

    This is a MLP tote bag... straight from Hasbro... featuring the My Little Pony: A New Generation logo.

    I spent a good amount of time searching for this bag online to find out if it can be purchased.

    It cannot. 

    This is an official, custom, My Little Pony logo Tote Bag. This is really freaking cool.

    Two custom branded items in this box. Not available for retail purchase.

    This is really cool. 

    I wonder what is up next.

    A Brumate, Uncork'd 14 oz wine tumbler. Glitter Rainbow in color.

    Well it is definitely colorful. Which is in keeping with a toyline for colorful equine horses.

    I wonder…

    This is a custom officially branded, My Little Pony: A New Generation Brumate, Uncork'd 14 ox wine tumbler

    Which is also not available at retail.

    This stuff is cool.

    As is the Unicorn Snot that was included in the box!

    Before anyone asks, I already checked the liquid highlighter. It is not My Little Pony Branded. Neither is the sunblock.

    But the Body and Face Glitter Gel most definitely is!

    Nothing too surprising about the sunblock. It's kind of a missed opportunity to not license out the My Little Pony IP wholesale to this particular brand of skin products.

    Especially since looking at Unicorn Snot's official website for this warm pink sunscreen shows that this is a company that takes environmental impact seriously. The glitter is biodegradable, it adheres to the environmental standards sets up the Sate of Hawaii, ingredients are ethically sourced…

    Why does this not have Sunny Starscourt's name plastered on it?

    I have the same question for the Liquid Highlighter. Cruelty-free, vegan, and safe for the face and body. 

    It's makeup, so it's not something I would probably ever use, but slap the MLP Brand on it and you'll have a winner.

    And speaking of winners, where's the My Little Pony: A New Generation: Unicorn Snot Glitter Gel!

    Which is themed for Sunny Starscout!

    Is this product:

    a) hilarious?
    b) cool?
    c) completely on brand for My Little Pony?
    d) cruelty-free and vegan?
    e) recommended for age 8 and up?

    If you answered with all of the above, you are correct!

    This really is the perfect starting makeup kit. The box is really high quality.

    Not a huge fan of the one time use plastic window securing the product in the box, but I'm not going to harp on it too much because:

    This is not a toy.

    The warning on the box makes it crystal clear this is not something that should be used unsupervised.

    So it is a bonding experience between parent and child.

    That is actually a really cool idea.  

    I really like the character blurb they have for Sunny on the packaging for this one.

    Which also happens to include the directions for both applying and removing the makeup.

    All, in all, cute product.

    Yus! More food! Which is doing nothing to help my waistline!

    For those wondering, yes this is your standard box of Girl Scout Thin Mints.  

    Yes I ate the box in one sitting. Yes, they are still that addictive. No, I do not regret eating them. 

    Up next we have a wireless Karaoke Microphone. The exact model is WS-858.

    This one is colored blue.

    How much do you want to bet it's MLP:ANG branded?

    Opens up the box…

    …and sure enough it is!

    I've also checked. While the microphone itself is available online, the specific My Little Pony branding is not. So this is another custom exclusive item for this box.

    Dare I ask what Hasbro has instore for the grand finale?

    Yes, I can already see the embroidery.

    However there are more pressing things to focus on right now.

    Like what is this? 

    It's pajamas.

    Specifically it's a Unicorn Costume Onesie Pajamas Outfit from OnesieBuy.

    The size is extra large which is good because it actually fits my height.

    And what makes it stand out is the My Little Pony: A New Generation logo embroidered on it. Which again makes this an official custom, not available at retail item. 

    Well this was definitely a wild ride. I was expecting toys from Hasbro, not a whole bunch of really cool custom stuff. I wonder what the next box will contain...

    Questions for later.

    Until next time folks, this has been The Illustrious Q!
