August 17, 2016

Integrity Toys, Inc., under license from Hasbro, Inc., has officially released its first six “<3 MLP” (pronounced “heart M-L-P”) fashion figures, a collection that was announced late last year. This high-end collectible series is inspired by and made to honor the fans of the MY LITTLE PONY brand.

This special-edition collection includes six fashion dolls and figures inspired by MY LITTLE PONY brand enthusiasts and fans of all ages. Each fan figure keeps the theme of their favorite MY LITTLE PONY character, wearing clothing and accessories inspired by that pony, complete with a “cutie mark” on their respective figures.

The six figures include:

• sonic_rainboom_92, a fan of RAINBOW DASH;

• sparkling_stargazer, a fan of TWILIGHT SPARKLE;

• rare_form_21, a fan of RARITY;

• appleofmyeye, a fan of APPLEJACK;

• kind_pegasus95, a fan of FLUTTERSHY;

• okie_dokie_party, a fan of PINKIE PIE.


“With beloved characters and messages of friendship, the MY LITTLE PONY brand has captivated fans of all ages through unique and engaging stories” said Alain Tremblay, marketing director of Integrity Toys, Inc. “We are so excited to showcase and honor their fandom through this unique and trendy series of collectible 12-inch figures”. Vaughn Sawyers, head designer for Integrity Toys added, “As MY LITTLE PONY fans are as firmly entrenched themselves in popular culture as the brand itself, and with fans on our own design team, we felt that now was the perfect time for a collection like this. Our lead designer for this collaboration, Jessy Ayala, is a MY LITTLE PONY fan himself, as are many members of our team, so we believe that brings additional authenticity to the project.”

The <3 MLP figures are done in 1:6 scale (approximately 12 inches tall) in limited editions of 500 pieces per style.

This is not the first time Integrity Toys has teamed up with Hasbro, Inc. Integrity also has been producing JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS collectible dolls under license from Hasbro, Inc. for the past few years.

Daniel Pickett

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since.

In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features.

He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced.

In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com.

Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s
“Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com,
Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official
Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many
others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows.

But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
