For anyone who hasn't seen these over on Equestria Daily:

Looks like the latest blindbag range will include three highly important ponies. There are some other cool ones in there, like Sapphire Shores, but these three take the cake.

Firstly there's Trixie, who has replaced Lulamoon from the previous wave by now having a first name. We all knew it was Trixie, and now it's been acknowledged.

Next is Lyra, who has replaced Heartstrings from the previous wave by, again, having the name 'Lyra' in front of the old Heartstrings.

Lastly is an entirely new mold in the form of Celestia. And she's white. Luna and Cadence are also in there somewhere.

We all have to remember that Hasbro are one of the biggest toy companies in the world. For them to make concessions like this is incredibly encouraging.

What do you all think to these new revelations?

Well, in the case of the Great and Powerful Trixie, that pretty much had to be done anyway. After all, seeing how often the Great and Powerful Trixie called herself the Great and Powerful Trixie in one single episode alone, to not call Trixie Trixie would make her not really Trixie, but some other pony who by no means would otherwise be Trixie at all. The Great and Powerful Trixie would balk at being called something so unspectacular and non-show stopping as "Lulamoon," a name Trixie has tried to distance herself from when Trixie became the greatest unicorn in Equestria. Trixie thinks it's not good for business.

The Lyra one is cool. Now people can finally stop fighting on whether to call her Lyra or Heartstrings. Celestia also actually looks pretty cool. ...Luna less so, but it's not as if it bothers me anyway since it's doubtful I'll ever get any of these.

Those cards are immensely funny though with their character "descriptions." Celestia is a "Magical Pony!" Luna "stays up late." Cadence "loves tiaras." Great.

And Fluttershy "blushes often." Really? "Likes animals" didn't feel like a better alternative? Or Rainbow Dash who generically "loves to help her friends." I think she "loves to fly" or "be awesome" are things that are much more likely to come to mind for most people. Skywishes "has big dreams" but never achieves them. Flippity Flop "giggles all day" and is one bushel away from the henhouse. Ploomette "has pretty wings" and little else. Golden Delicious "loves acting", which is why he got a sex change operation, 'cause now he can just "sleep" for his parts. And Rainbow Wishes "chases rainbows." So calling it, she's so got a HOT LESBIAN CRUSH on Dashie. Total lesbians!!!!34!!

Oh Hasbro, why do you do this to me so early in the day...

It's...beautiful! But it would be sweet If Trixie got a new mold instead of being a Rarity repaint.

FINALLY! No more Pinklestia! I was getting rather tired of seeing those. Now, we can finally start over. :D

I really like that Lyra is technically canon; the only way for it to be indisputable now is if it's mentioned at any point in the show. :)

Even so, Trixie and Lyra are pretty much recolors of Rarity and Twilight respectively. But, I do understand that it costs money to create entirely new molds.
