That would depend on several things.
Is the MLP show being broadcast in Japan? Licensing would be an issue if not.
Also, it might be hard for Figma to market these to the Japanese market if there's no following locally. AFAIK, MLP seems to be a niche, cult success with mainly "Western" audiences. If they can't market it in Japan, I doubt they'll want to manufacture it.
I was talking about Figma like ponies. Some other company could take a licence from Hasbro and just start manifacturing these. We never know! We see more and more adult-orientd MLP merchs coming out so that type of toy is a possibility.
