Toy Fair reveal of upcoming special (through tie-in toys): Rainbow Roadtrip
Leading up to Toy Fair, Hasbro and their fan-favorite My Little Pony brand have big news: Spinning out of an upcoming animated special, My Little Pony: Rainbow Roadtrip, comes the My Little Pony Rainbow Tail Surprise Collection.
The world of My Little Pony is all about bold, bright colors – but in My Little Pony: Rainbow Roadtrip, the Mane 6 visit a town devoid of color! They must work together to bring the rainbow back to the town. The accompanying toys feature ponies with colorless tails! Kids can put the tales in water to magically bring the color back. The toys and animated special will premiere this summer.
When Twilight Sparkle and her friends arrive in Hope Hollow, they find the town and all its residents completely devoid of color – their dream vacation is starting to feel more like a nightmare! The Mane 6 will have to solve the mystery behind this washed-out world if they hope to bring the "rainbow" back to the Rainbow Festival and color back to the lives of their new friends.
I guess it's time to rewatch The Runaway Rainbow. Though honestly, I'm fine with a G3 style story for a special.
It's funny that this all is to tie into one of those toys that change color in water.
Comicbook.com isn't all that reliable for news, but they have zero reason to lie about this, I think.
Oh damn, we could be getting our first Boulder Media special.
(Or Studio Trigger as a longshot)
On another note, a Valentines message from Tabitha St. Germain to Spike.
