Note:  We’re a little unclear as to if the French version of the MLP Magazine or the UK version will feature the figure, or both.

The word on the interwebs is that the magazines will be putting our figures by Egmont all throughout 2017 with various issues that go to press.    And most likely, the first figure that will be accompanying the magazine will be a  Baby Flurry Heart figure. Let’s cross our figures that everyone who’s… Read more »

First off, we here at Brony.com would like to extend our sincere apologies if this article offends anyone.   We’re not exactly sure how we feel about this as of the posting of this article ourselves.
