We have another one of those posts filled with stuff that makes you wish you were either swimming in money, or skilled in the art of plushie making. The quality on these things has expanded such a huge amount of the years. Lets hope 4DE speeds it up and starts releasing their higher quality manufactured ponies so the rest of us can get these things!
Anyway, go be envious with me after the break.
That's an Academy Record!
Here is an odd one that is escaping the roundup. Over in London, a department store called Selfridges is displaying Pinkie Pie's and Cadances with a line of clothing. The actual clothing doesn't seem to have anything to do with ponies, but they did purchase a buckload of toys to go with them.
Did it work? Do you have a sudden urge to don a pink dress and head to the mall?
Thanks to Deadlyaviator for the heads up.
I always liked evil Cadance more. The facial expressions she makes are excellent! Can we just assume Chrysalis decided to do a permanent body swap in season four?
Have some art while I go force them to do that!

I remember listening to that song in the third one way too much when it was released. We have three pmv's this time around! Some are a little bit obnoxious with the effects, but Sweetie Bot singing "Harder Better Faster Stronger" in the first one totally makes up for the other's transgressions! Get them below the break.
1.) [PMV / Sweetie Bot] Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger
2.) PMV - The Good Left Undone
3.) Winter Wrap Up (Sparkle remix) PMV
Another completely over the top super hero / ponyville crossover has been released fromt he same guy that brought us the Batman and Spiderman videos. If you watched those, you probably know what to expect. Head on down below the break to check them out!
Hot Topic has revealed their variant for the 8th comic in the main arc series. It's looking like a bit of historical stuff this time around. If you want to pre-order it, hit up their page here! Expect it on 6/12.

I've been asked for a non-sad and non-murderous Pinkamena for awhile now and there is nothing more opposite to murderous and sad than the Pinkamena from the Ask Young Pinkamena tumblr. If you have seriously not seen it yet you're doing yourself a disservice. Go!
Anyhow, time for the news! Check after the break.
[Sad] "This is an excellent example of how to write sad properly. Many focus on the loss and bereavement, but you must also see the good times that came before for the loss to have meaning." -- Pre-reader CouchCrusader
Description: Nopony ever said the friendship between Fluttershy and Discord would be an easy one. The difference in their life expectancies doesn’t help, but that’s a problem Discord can fix with a snap of the talons—that is, until Fluttershy finds out. Discord isn’t one to give up easily, though. He’ll do anything to keep his one and only friend. Anything.Forever Young

The long awaited Ponycraft: Tainted Skies game has release a short demo/showoff piece of what is to come. Twilight Sparkle is decked out with three abilities, your job is to run around rescuing four Derpy ponies.
Head on over to their download page for information on getting it installed. Below the break, you will find a full press release on everything as well if you want a bit more on how you can follow the project.
Spotlight Music: Discord's Return / SoGreatAndPowerful - PinkiePieSwear [Voodoopony Live Edit] / Friends
We start this one off with a jazzy rock acoustic song focused on Discord. They even tossed some Pan Flute in there (or at least I was asked to point that out!)
Slot two is taken over by a SoGreatandPowerful / PinkiePieSwear edit from Voodoopony. I'm not even sure what to compare it to, but can any of these three be categorized?
And in the last slot, we have a bit of vocal stuff dedicated to Twilight and her friends. The guy singing it is actually french, so the accent might throw you off a bit at the beginning, but it's not bad once you get used to it!
Check them all out below.
1.) Discords Return (pt1)
2.) SoGreatAndPowerful - PinkiePieSwear [Voodoopony Live Edit]
3.) MLP FIM - Friends
