God dammit, I don't know anyone with kids who enjoys the show, and it'd be really awkward if I showed up there by myself/with my own mum. The "exclusive episode on DVD" will probably just be a normal episode, but it'd still be awesome to get my hands on it.
Damn it; I wish I could go.If I wasn't in England, I think I'd just go, no matter what happened.
HOLY SHIT! HOW CAN APPLEJACK DO THAT?
It's times like this when I am convinced that a Rent-a-Kid store is a necessity.
The DVD will probably end up on eBay before long. Stores always end up with surpluses of those things. Hopefully some employee won't be stupid enough to throw them out.The disc will probably just be a random episode we've already seen.
@Anonymous She's Applejack. That's just what you do when you're the most badass pony of all.
They want a playdate with MY MUM? 0.0
@AnonymousMad Skills, obviously. Takes a lot of it to hold a rope without hands.As for the DVD, 5$ says it's a preview of Season 2.
I can pretend to be an 6 year old girl, who will pretend to be the mum?
Maybe Somepony from australia could drop a store an email to see if they have any surplus stock afterwards.
F pretending. Man the hell up, "I would like to schedule for the MLP Event""Yes sir, and how old is your daughter?""Oh no, I have no kids. I'd like to attend myself, possibly with a guest."*awkward silence*Manager: "Sir, just how old are you...?"
wate... I AM FROM AUSTRALIA!
I pray to God this isn't some kind of unique, limited flash with ponies, destined to never see the internet and leave the shelf of some oblivious parent.
but I live near non of the stores :(
Ok I sent an email asking what will become of the DvDs not given away, I am hoping for a replay sometime laters since it's about 2 AM here now
Actually I'm australian but it'll just feel too awkward to go alone (I'm 14 so they'll assume I have a mental illness) the unusual thing about this though is mlp:fim doesn't exist here (no TV, no toys), can any fellow australians explain?
@AnonymousI am 15 so it will look more odd here, but my guess that it is a promotion. there are rumors that ABC3 will be showing it soon.
But my mum is around her 40's and I'm 20I don't think she'd like to play with me :(
Wait, if it'll show on Australian TV we might get the mcdonalds toys! Im so excited!
Ok Jack ,stop messin' around, this is the plan.1.We fill the reservations to ensue they have a crapload of DVD's2.The day of the event you walk inside trigger the fire alarm and fetch the DVD's for us (alternatively you can bribe a kid to make him pretend he's choking or puking or something) 3.Run like hell4.TELL US what's in the EXCLUSIVE Aussie DVD5.??????????6.PROFITBeing serious, probably the DVD is just like that Austrian or Nordic DVD that seth posted a while ago, which had the Ticketmaster episode, they use it for introducing the series to a new country. Makes sense since Jack Pipsam claims that Poni doesn't air on Kangaroo land yet.
You silly fillies are worrying over nothing. The bronies, a community such as us,w ill overcome this age discrimination with the power of friendship.Because the kids are wee tiny things, it will be easy to snatch the dvd from one in the parking lot before speeding away in ten seconds flat.
I wished I lived there, I want to go so badly. And I know my mother would totally go with me, she loves that stuff.
Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!I won't be in a town with a Toys R Us store on those days!Well, its not like I had a child or anything and my nephew/niece ain't due for a long while.
Hey Jack, if you have any friends that enjoy mlp (mine hate it) you could go as a joke and pretend you're taking the DVD for the lulz while actually taking it because you enjoy it.
@AnonymousI don't live near of the stores :( however I sent them an email asking them what will be done of the dvds
I didn't see an age limit on the event...I wonder how they would react if adults stormed the place for ponies?
They are also kind of discriminating against Dads....
@Anonymous...this, but only if it comes down to it.Also, Exclusive. Pony. DVD! Can I have it, PLEASE! *cries*
I'm so tempted to hold an irl brony meetup here.
Also sorry International people, the dvds will only work in Australian and New Zealand players (unless you use a special player)
Ah, shoot. My baby sis would've loved this. We take a trip to TRU every couple of weeks. But we live in the States.
@Jack PipsamActually, it's pretty easy to unlock your DVD player if you know what you're doing.
HERE IS THE PLAN:1-Find someone who works at one of those Toys R Us stores.2-Bribe them. They are Toys R Us employees, so this will not be expensive. Half a sandwich should do it. They will weep with joy and tell their friends of the untold riches they have discovered. 3-In exchange for their vast wealth, they are to pocket a couple of those pony DVD's for you, and await your return. Also they must spraypaint "APPLEJACK IS BETTER THAN RAINBOW DASH" all over the play area, so the kids grow up with a proper pony role model.4-Return to Toys R Us and confirm that the job is done. You can then give him the other half of the sandwich. It will be kind of old by then, but he won't care.5-Return home with your pony DVD. Rip any new content and put it on the internet for all bronies to enjoy.6-Now everyone can watch the secret lost episode about Derpy and Princess Luna forming a punk band.
Actually, I'm curious, how many Australian Bronies are there?
@AnonymousThis anon knows what he's talking about. Applejack is best pony indeed
@AnonymousI am guessing quite a few
JACK YOU HAVE TO GO
@AnonymousCan I buy some pot from you?
@AnonymousI believe this a week thing in which case School will be on :(
There are quite a lot of us Aus Bronies around. I am one. However as has been said before, I can confirm: MLP:FIM is not currently airing on Australian television. As a result, I am very tempted to believe this will be a similar event to the ones in the past.Although its interesting to note that the event is coming out right after the airing of the season finale for the show - I would look further into that, but its also the day before Australian Mother's Day, so odds are its just that date and an old episode.Also Toys R Us stores are a lot less common here than in the US, so its not going to be a HUGE event. I'm sure someone will find out the truth of the matter soon after it happens.
Damn...I wish they were doing this at the Toys R Us I work at, but that's in Cali.
YOUR MUMSomeone had to.
I see a vision.A vision of 25 year olds storming toys r us, mothers in tow, demanding dvds of of poniesIts a pretty awesome sight to behold
"Playdate with your Mum"... and the fixed gender roles that the show claims to transcend are made moot by the marketing dept. Good job! :P
>visit us with your mumChallenge accepted.
Australia is apparently anti-Rarity. No wonder I hate Australia
How about somepony with a DA account could ask Lauren Faust if this DVD contains something new?
@Anonymoussorry the world is anti-Rarity, guess you have to hate the world now
It shouldn't be too hard to, you know, walk into the store and request a DvD. Say you have a kid that loves the show but couldn't make it to the event. It's not like Toys R' Us employees care who gets the pony Dvds and who doesn't.I'll be looking forward to the Ticketmaster episode with mustaches and kangaroos shooped in.
prolly an old ep to introduce MLP to everythingtryingtokillyou land (also known as Australia) but who knows...everypony should bring their dads. just to show that marketing department they dont control us! :D
@DaffodilI would do that, but.I am at schoolLive no where near itand 15.so all around :( on my end
Okay guys, i will sneak in and get one for the brony who pays for my plane ticket!
to say it in Rarity style:You must you must you mustMy version:I must i must i must..... have it lolololol
I thought cartoons and fun were illegal in Australia.
@Anonymousthat doesn't even make sense
@Jack PipsamAre you going to stop spamming this blog post with useless comments any time soon? This isn't a chatroom, you know.
@Jack PipsamYou have school on a Saturday? Seriously? o.O
@LiaOh it's on a Saturday XDI thought it was a week thing
i have a nephew. thus an excuse to go and get that disc. being Australian has never been so awesome
You /do/ know that they did that on purpose to keep "those crazy 25 year old nerds from the internet" out of the equation, right?
Someone please ask Lauren Faust if there will be the entire season 1 on dvd when we're in season 2.
...*Is Australian**Has a friend with a 7 year old daughter who is also into My Little Pony**Close to Toys-R-Us*I WILL SUGGEST THIS EVENT TO THEM. Although... I fear that since this -is- Australia, where the episodes haven't even begun to air yet, the Dvd will just have Ticket Master on it, like the european and brazilian promotional Dvds.
oh shit AJ what the fuck are you doing you dont have fingers youre a ponyuse your mouth
> Event is at Toys-R-Us> Not a long drive from here> I've wanted to get my sister G4 toys for a long time (She's nearly 4, and loves MLP to death), and weirdly enough, my 5 year old brother thinks the show is good too> Got some spare cash on hand and a freshly repaired carExcuse me. I have a road trip to Kotara to organise.
Hmm...I'm a 14-year-old brony with an income of a dollar a week (plus change I grab off the floor), a family full of people who don't even know about bronydom (or even the fact that there's a new MLP, probably), a *possible* vacation already planned for Florida, and I'm in central America.I can totally pull this one off, guys.~Display Name
Scoot Fillysher style?I'm quite shure you meant Solid Stallion style!
It's good that there are people who will be attending, some doing road trips and some who live close by.
Story time?*waits for someone to read "Cupcakes"*
I live near a Toys-R-Us, and it's actually so close I can bike to it, but I'm 15, so I don't think I'll be able to see the exclusive episode where Applejack and Fluttershy visit Luna.
Why must every single FiM promotion be outside of the US?
Silly TRU, completely unaware of the brony tidal wave they have unleashed upon themselves. the 15-20 or so children in line will likely be trampled under the feet of a thousand stampeding bronies.
I'm biologically 26, but modern medicine (and the doctors who practice it) think I'm 14-16.Doesn't do me any good when I'm on the other side of the planet, though.
Hm...I imagine this DVD may have commentary from Lauren Faust and company? Maybe even some behind the scenes stuff? Hell, and a bonus episode to boot, amitrite? :D
QUICK HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HAVE A KID!!!
Well, the fact that it's here is probably cos we're getting the 4th gen toys next month, and possibly the show in June.I'll see if I can get it. May need to borrow a friend's kid or somehow convince my little brother to pretend to like ponies.
Is it... is it racist if I read all that in an Australian accent?
Wait, it's an American-only show with an Australian-only event. Like, what.
@Anonymous9 months for humans.
I'm sure it's just 'exclusive' in the sense that all episodes would be, considering none have aired here yet.
@Anonymous"American-only", you do know where it is made don't you?hint: the place starts with a C and right above you
I hope this means Australia is finally getting the FiM toys.
Did someone say there's promotions in Europe too?did I just investigate and find out there are promotions in neighbouring countries?WHERE IS MY BIKE? I NEED TO TURN EVERY TOY STORE IN MY COUNTRY UPSIDE DOWN
I think I'll just say my little sister was the one who wanted it booked. Then, I'll get the DVD.
Wait a second... AJ and Rainbow at this thing? GO THERE AND FIND OUT WHERE THE PORTAL TO EQUESTRIA IS!!!
Went to the party, can confirm that the DVD is just " The Ticket Master" :P ah well.
It is no surprise if after few weeks, a copy for this DVD will become available on eBay.toy stores online
