'Weird Al' Yankovic's My Little Pony Character Is Now an Action Figure
If you’re a Brony who loves “Weird Al” Yankovic, your favorite character on the Discovery Family Channel’s My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is probably the self-professed "super duper party pony" (and Pinkie-Pie rival) Cheese Sandwich. Cheese Sandwich’s ebullient personality and bushy mane are modeled after Weird Al, who lends his voice to the character.
So far, Cheese Sandwich has only appeared or been mentioned in a couple of MLPFIM episodes, but that didn’t stop toy company Hasbro from immortalizing the fun-loving pony in action figure form. A model of Cheese Sandwich will be included in the upcoming action-and-adventure-themed Guardians of Harmony line of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic figures, Kotaku reports. It's slated for release this fall.
Along with Cheese Sandwich, fans of the show can purchase single figures of characters including Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Shadowbolt, and Shining Armor. And if sparkly mane combs aren’t your thing, you can also buy tough pony accessories like swords, chariots, and “party cannons.”
Check out a picture of Cheese Sandwich (who costs $19.99) astride his own mini-tank below.
