Croco and Joe Hood, the party thieves? I don't know
Season 2 o.o
It's Jesse and James!
...do you have the rest of the poster in the same awesome quality too? Are you just holding out on us? :<
MacMoody and Suitcase, the minions of Krastos!
Gummy's long lost father!
That is gummy's evil twin.
From the author of a the comic-ocn poster:"There are 2 ponies in the basket. 1 is a background pony with aviator goggles added on for fun."I see no goggles there.
uh... what is this lol...
Irish pony is now Putt Putt
Wait, didn't somebody claiming to be the one who made this poster say it would be somebody else? Have... I been lied to on the internet!? D:
What if they put it there just to see how long it took for us to notice and start talking about it?
I decided to repeat the same process with my potoshop copy and ... yes it's a croc and a pony with a newsboy cap.
@AnonymousAww, beat me to the Team Rocket jokes.Also, curse you speculation! The next season I'll be viewing as it airs is season 4. If you speculate about season 2 things now, it just reminds me. :(
Gummy's big bro aaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnddd......a cockney street-wandering pickpocket with a heart of gold, 'cause he only steals to try and pay for the operation his little sister, a world-weary soul that still manages to see every cloud's silver lining despite all that life has thrown her way, desperately needs to cure her of the degenerative disease that is slowly robbing her of her vision.Or something like that. I'm a sucker for sob-stories.
@KeinI actually assume the "crocodile" is the one with the goggles. This appears to just be a trace meant for making sense of the blurred characters.
All I know is I'm digging that hat.
@KeinIt looks like the goggles are supposed to be on the left character. Whether it is a pony or a crocodile, I cannot determine.
@KeinThis. The creator of the poster said the character on the left is the background pony Cherry with aviator goggles and a cap.Where did this "enhanced version" come from, anyway?
I believe this is what is called a red herring.
well I'm sure someone will get their hooves on one of those posters this weekend, then we'll know for sure
@Flygon16 Joey Wheeler is a pony now? Well, what Joey Wheeler would be if he weren't good at card games? Anyway, this is interesting. A croc and a pony in the background of this comicon poster. I wonder what this means? It could be anything. ANYTHING! Well, anything, but most likely cameos for what may be our new "villains" for season 2?
Will somepony explain how the high quality image was rendered, or where it's from originally? There's no way that it was somehow enhanced from the blurry image above it.
Seth, how did you get this enhanced picture?
Oh, I forgot something.Personally, I think it looks like a 6-legged pony with a purple polka-dotted mane and shooting stars coming out of its eyes who flies through the air all over the world to hid magic sparkly eggs.
Does wearing a newsboy hat automatically make you a gangster?
I meant hide
@ShakeBunnyNonsense friend. Don't you watch CSI?
DO YOU HAVE AN IMAGE EDITOR THAT CAN BITMAP?
@S.Aura KnightDAMMIT! I knew I was stealing that idea from somewhere, but why did it have to be from Yu-Gi-Oh?! Oh well, mine's cooler 'cause he's got a British accent =D
@SomeonelseThis is canon.
Where did Nayuki say it was a pony with goggles, anyway? I can't find any comment like that.
@SomeonelseThat's right!...Not really. Props, though!
Isn't the clear image just an artist's speculation of what that is?Oh well, I won't ruin speculation fun-times :D
Wait, was that piece of art/poster actually officialized made by the mlp:fim team?Maybe Season 2 will involve that character and his pet alligator on learning about how friendship is magic and the mane cast will move aside?Then again, the pony looks like a colt... and of course male ponies are background and/or support characters lol. >_>
@Anonymoushttp://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/07/exclusive-my-little-pony-comic-con.html?commentPage=2Search for "Nayuki". It's about halfway down the page.
I believe Nayuki said the one on the left was Cherry with a hat and aviator goggles, but alas the one on the right is left to speculation for fun. Probably a random background pony as well.
I for one think, if this is real, its Hasbro trolling us. They wanted us to find these two, and have us speculate months on end, writing fanfics and creating epic fan art of these two characters only to reveal they aren't characters in season 2, just meant to throw us off the trail.I'M ON TO YOU, TROLLESTIA!!
That is most definitely a pink pony with aviator goggles.
@Flygon16 Nyehhh Brooklyn is a better place than Britain! Plus, it fits with the gangsta speculation!Also, what I really want to know is not where did this image come from, but who the heck decided to check this out. "Oh, look, Twilight's balloon in the background I'll just blow this up because I was told there'd be a background pony and HOLY CELESTIA THAT IS A CROCODILE!"
Gummy's new friend and a pony who aspires to become a detective (ie, he/she doesn't have his/her cutie mark yet, but he/she knows what she wants to be best at)
@AnonymousIf it is, then Seth's post is pretty darn misleading.
@CalnosThat just what they WANT you to think...
This looks shopped, I can tell by the pixels.
I don't think so Tim
Even if this is just someone's speculation art, I can already see dozens of fanfics being spawned from it.I love this fandom.
nyehdon't really think so but what do you think seth???
The one on the left is totally a pink pony with a hat and aviators. I don't know how you got an oversized lizard from that.Frankly, I think this whole thing is...*sunglasses*...A CrockYEEEEAAAAAAAAHHH
If you hold your monitor upside-down this whole thing becomes much more intriguing.What was Hasbro trying to cover up?Why hide a young newsy and his trusty alligator whom he befriended in the Manehattan sewer system?What do they not want us to know?How in the ever-loving crap did they get a hot-air balloon to do a loop???Keeps you up at night, man.
Getting from blur to that croc seems like a bit of a stretch to me...Be-hatted pony... more believable.
Quite obviously, the creator of this poster devised this ambiguous image, knowing full well that a veritable mass of speculation and inane, yet amusing explanations would be aroused amongst the brony population, whilst said creator would observe the minor hysteria that he or she had unleashed and respond with mild to moderate mirth suited to a practical joke of this caliber.Elementary, my dear fellows.
the one on the left (blurried) looks like twilight with a hat, and goggles on the hat, and the hat look similar to the hat the one on the right (non-blurried) has on.
oh dear god we just need season 2 to come out... speculations are getting dumber by the minute.
@Roman500A 1920's gangster! And a young ruffian one, too! The worst kind.
I think it looks like a pink pony in aviator goggles and some kind of hat. The white pony in the newsboy cap looks spot-on though.
That pony would be be awesome to see in an episode, the croc, not so much.
They're probably the characters of the people who put this picture together.
Team Hot-Air Balloon, blast off at the speed of . . . umm . . . crap. Foiled by the accursed safety pin Unicorn known only as "Pokey"-mon.
Gummy's dad, and the eccentric ace detective who's trying to track down the "gator-napper" Best episode ever.
Gangster? Man, it's crazy what these ponies will say at the drop of a hat.
hold up, what back ground pony is pink and would...........HOLY CRAP IT'S FYRE FLYE
GO FANFICTION WRITERS! TO YOUR KEYBOARDS! A WHOLE NEW WORLD OF SHIPPING AND GRIMDARK AWAITS YOU!! :D
@SomeonelseYou think it looks like Derpy?
I also posted about this on the Equestria Forums.Didn´t know what they were but I thought something like Twilight with a flying helmet and Sweetie Belle with an army cap.
Yep, this is totally going to be "Nazo the Hedgehog" all over again.
@LazarusMy gosh... Derpy's true form...
DAMNIT!! Don't you all see? Well, I guess you don't. This is the first of the Horrible changes. The executives thought the show needed a standard "bad guy", so that kids wouldn't get confused (even though they didn't before). This is the reoccuring bad guy group they brought in to start to ruin the show. For further blunders stay tuned and find out what else they have in store for us. DAMN IT ALL!
@Lazarus(If you're sure you know what I'm talking about, then by all means disregard this comment.)It's an actual quote from the show. It's at the end of Look Before You Sleep when they're playing that guessing game.Be it Derpy or not, I have no say in your imaaaaaaagination.
@AnonymousI don't think so.
@AnonymousJeeze, don't try and be TOO optimistic now. Seriously, you know NOTHING about these two characters! They could pull a Luna and be villains for two episodes, but then not appear again until Season 3!
I agree with the idea that someone is trolling us. I think you need some sleep Seth.
those guys are what someone decided to draw after looking at the blur above.Nothing more, nothing less-Vegetalss4
ZOOM AND ENHANCE
I can see it now.Team Crocit blast off at the speed of light!Surrender now or prepare to-Pinkie Pie: "Party!"Seriously though, I do wonder who those two are. If it is what Erroneous described, I cannot wait for their appearance!
Did anyone else notice that in the original poster, there appears to be a great deal of pixilation around the hot air balloon?
@Roman500That, or an impoverished orphan.
@AvogadroThat's likely because it is a low quality image.
Look on the bright side, guys. If these two aren't really the ones in the picture, we get FOUR new characters to play with! :D
@AvogadroThose are just JPEG compression artifacts. You can see similar artifacting in other areas of the image where the sky borders objects.
@AnonymousOr an impoverished orphaned newsboy gangster!
I don't see a gator-croco-reptile. I see a grey-purplish pony, wearing the same hat as the smaller pony. I also think that the smaller pony might not be a pony (like some sort of "partner creature", or whatever the type of relationship between Twilight Sparkle and Spike is called).
Oi, random teasers? What are you, Kojima? o_O
How did anyone get a crocodile out of that? If you look at the blurred image carefully enough, the left character is obviously a pink/purple pony with a white mane and aviator goggles.It's a little bit harder to tell with the character on the right, though.
yeah, I'm pretty sure the one on the left is actually a pony not the alligator/croc that was drawn by whoever that may have been
@RayquazaKidThanks, man. Thanks a ton. Now I've got the Team Rocket song from the original show stuck in my head...AGAIN."Team Rocket's rocket..."
The pixelated version was so much so that I thought it was Spike and Twilight picking up rather wierd pixels. So an alligator and a pony in an old timey hat? Very odd.The alligator looks sentient, which breaks the prior pattern of only seeing it in Equines. Probable Gummy link already mentioned.The pony's expression is rather sly. The snout looks male, but that could just be the angle. The hat is probably a Gatsby, which is typically associated with newspaper boys... that pony is probably some kind of reporter. Although it's not unusual to see hats stuck on toons simply for the look.
This is legit. A brony ran an enhancement algorithm, and it was double checked.
Anyone else hear Colbert shout ENHANCE upon seeing the image?
"I want to Believe..."
it's pinkie uncle "wierd joe" and his pet alligator "jaws"
http://www.ponychan.net/chan/pony/res/35705691.htmlReposting above Anon's link for great justice.
I feel as though i saw these 2 in a dream o.obut anyways, neat!
It's obviously Twilight's mom and G1!Spike.
Is it just me, or does the white one look like a Mimiga?
Epileptic Trees and Wild Mass Guessing EVERYWHERE! D8I'll add my bit. Antagonists, as promised by Word of Lauren.
IT'S TWOILAAIIGHT SPARGGGHCLES BLOON!
Ughh...are these actually official? or you're just trolling us? i can't tell =/
they look pretty fake to me
So much speculation. This is exactly why they were incorporated into the background of the image in the first place. ;)
That blob looks nothing like a crocodile.. It's either twilight or someone in aviator goggles, or someone with green striped forward-curled hair with some sort of purple sideburns. I'd not doubt those who call fake, though. That white pony has green hair! White, and green hair! No one would dare..
The one on the right definitely looks accurate, but the crocodile looks more like a purple-coated, green-haired balloon pilot with aviator goggles.
THESE TWO NEED FANART IMMEDIATELY!And names, as well.
This is not legit, I'm 99% sure of it.My reasons to believe so: the style of the croc.That character's drawing style just doesn't match the show, imo.Nayuki (if he/she is actually the one who made it) pretty much provided a link to MLP Wiki, claiming the character on the left is a pink pony (cheery something) with aviator goggles and flying hat.
@EwyndallWell, it could very well be that it was touched up a bit when it was enhanced, and so it's not perfectly in-line with the show's animation.
Who the heck came up with the crocodile? What the hay is this?!?It looks to me like Twilight and Sweetie Belle (or possibly Rarity) with some sort of greenish, brown headgear. Seriously, who the HAY rendered this into a crocodile, and some IRA gangster pony? That's just freaking ridiculous.I want to know who, because I want slap them in the face, followed by a swift kick square in the groin for such severely odd and unsettling assumptions.If the high quality IS some unreleased original art (and not some brony's fever dream), I now fear for season two's quality.
@AnonymousGod, calm down...
I dub the pony on the right "Al Capony"
@AnonymousIsn't that the point of speculation though? To express like or dislike, and share opinions of possible outcomes of something that we're emotionally or otherwise vested in?If not, sorry for not just posting "lol, gator", and moving along.
@AnonymousIt's fine to express dislike. I was just talking about the whole "physically harming the artist because of my dislike" bit.
@AnonymousThe point of speculation is to speculate, sharing our ideas and sometimes rate / debate over said ideas."I want slap them in the face, followed by a swift kick square in the groin", no matter how we look at it, is not part of speculation by definition.Chill down. P.S: Inb4 "Rofl I was j/k u c4n't t4k3 a joke"
So that's where those guys got off to. I was wondering where they went.
IT'S THIS PONY: http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110323223726/mlp/images/9/96/Journey_Scoop.pngI knew I'd seen that pony before!
The one in the left is obviously a pony with a scope and in a pirate hat!
It's a UFO. Don't buy the "compression artifacts" story, that's what they want you to believe.
>IT'S THIS PONY: http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110323223726/mlp/images/9/96/Journey_Scoop.png>I knew I'd seen that pony before!I concur. Now we need to locate the pony with the aviator goggles.
because this totally isn't shopped
My friend and I loaded this picture into a few different image editors, no amount of editing or enhancing can render it anything but an incomprehensible blob of pixels.So yeah, it's just a funny photoshop.
The crocodile is Daisy with aviator goggles on her forehead the other is me, Oswald Newscap!
Guys, this is the original pixelated image from the poster. http://www.ponychan.net/chan/pony/src/131119298195.pngAs much as I'd love to have those characters... I'm sure the 'pixelated' image posted was made in such a manner after creating the fake two characters below. If you look closer, too, the characters' outlines go over the basket for a little bit.
Quick! Take the poster to a Kinkos and scan it at 1600 DPI.
I can see Jessie and James finding Torchlight Sparkle and trying to catch the rare ponyta... Only to get kicked by the mane six...
totally fake.the balloon looks all jpgish and the characters very pngish >.>also you can see few parts where the quality is different.
@CSIThis photo seems to be...*Shades on*...a load of croc.YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH
The funny thing is, a chap in ponychan is already wrting a fanfic about the two charcters he went with "Putt-Putt" for the pony on the right as an airship pilot who saved a gator from a gang of air pirates.
Zoom in and... Enhance!
Even if this is just a joke or a fake... the Fanon will create complete backstory’s for both characters as well as tons of fanfics and pictures. The only question is: What new Ship will we get. Crocogummy? Crocodash?
@AnonymousThat is because the characters were ENHANCED...
Guys, I don't usually do this, but I have to tell you my dream I had last night after having seen this.So I was on youtube in my dream and I clicked on a video that was said to be a preview for season two of FiM and it showed these two characters as Henchmen for Trixie, helping her to get back at Twilight for ruining her carreer!So yeah... My dream......Wow that was pointless wasn't it?...I'll go now.
Someone on ponychan admitted to making this;http://www.ponychan.net/chan/pony/res/35705691.html#35707161
a pony held hostage by a crocodile... WTF?
@AnonymousSee? Told ya. Though they do look like awesome characters, if they were to exist. Hope Seth updates teh post or something?
@Anonymous silly its obviously butch and... That other one.
They stole Twilight's Balloon.Twilight: "My ballooooooooooon!"(Spiderman 2 for PS2; children, I hate you)
Gummy's stupid older brother and Inkie Pie but she changed genders and became a British gangster.
OMG, it's Gummy's daaaaaaddyyyyyy! He's a dentist and feels his son is a failure for losing all his teeth and not listening to him, so he hired a Scottish pony to beat him with a golf club BUT THEN Pinkie Pie turns him into cupcakes and we all live happily ever after the end.
What? Y'all are being trolled. It's just a really small picture of Twilight and Spike on the balloon.
That's amazing how they snuck that back there. Now I can't wait for Season 2 even more
Hope they aren't like team rocket with the balloon and all(HuffytheMagicDragon)
Gummy's older brother comes to eat gummy because he is jealous that pinkie pie chose gummy over him.Meanwhile, the other pony is trying to distract pinkie pie, and at this point, Rarity and Rainbow dash have to work together to save gummy.
Bless whoever did this. And bless cartoonlion for crosslinking me to this ED article.I was in a /co/ thread when that offical poster got uploaded, and that balloon issue BLEW MY MIND.
One on the right looks like Applejack's puppy in the first (blurry!) picture. That's my 2 bits, anyway. Is the alligator official, or is it a fan drawing of what someone thinks is in the balloon?
