Hasbro just won about every single internet I own.
Hasbro, you are so Bro. You have earned a Brofist from me for this.
holy shit hasbro.Have my babies
lol they are quick xD
While this is PROBABLY just a brony at Hasbro making us think 'We're watching you', I'm hoping to god that this means they really are and that we might just see some G4 stuff eventually.
OMG Hasbro! You are too awesome! :D
You must be joking...
They are finally starting to learn how to market to their audience, lol.
What? What?? WHAT?!?
Now just FIX THE ACTUAL PONY TOYS, PLEASE. >:-/
I...Um.I... I... don't even have words for this. I really don't. I don't even have an emoticon. There's honestly no way that's a coincidence. I... wow. This is the best thing ever. Until Saturday.
What's with all the magneto stuff lately?
Ok, everypony buy this. If you do, then Hasbro will take the demographic as a serious market potential and make brony toys!!!
@Yamigetsutakes years to do that :/
That is amazing.
Ok could someone tell me what the Magneto thing is about?
Pink Celestia. Never forget.
No Way.... No fucking way
Lmao. Oh Hasbro, you so silly!
I wouldn't exactly call it the "Best thing ever," But it is pretty hilarious.
D: D: D:Oh my gosh! (woops that's Dashie's line)I can't believe I was there when this went down, and Hasbro is playing along??? XDJust WOW :D
That put a big grin on my face.
I giggled hard.
@bronydash http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/09/bronyville-livestream-recordingswrapup.htmlMagneto trolled the gala, thats what.
My...god...IT'S GLORIOUS.TAKE ALL MY MONEY. JUST TAKE IT, HASBRO.
I love Hasbro so much right now.
HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE
@Cador_2004Yay, a chance to be useful! Alrighty, at that marathon the other days, on episode twenty-six, the Magneto add keep popping up. Really, you have to watch it to get it.
The implications of this are simply mind-blowing.Hasbro.... I approve. *brohoof*
Wait what?? Really?This.. made my night. Hell this made my week. I'm at a loss of words. So freaking awesome~
There must be a way to make entries in their product database show up in multiple places. Otherwise, what is this friendship?
I hereby withdraw myself from participation in the global monopoly schemes of Apple, Microsoft, and Google.Several centuries hence, there will be no earth. Only Planet Hasbro.
So many brohoofs to Habsro from me I don't even
Oh my God, Hasbro, I love you.
Lol worthy. Now get me some not $100 plushies D:.
Wow... Talk about being in touch with your fanbase... that is freaking fast. That said, I do wonder if this bodes well for the "Hasbro is working hard on toys/merch for the brony community" concept...
Oh my celestia, ok hasbro just sky rocketed in my book.
Welp, didn't see that one comin'.
awesome, just so awesome, now we need to reverse it(make ponies troll a big event during X-MEN), also Magneto pony is now on knowyormeme.com
Well played Hasbro.On a side note five of the mane six are available for purchase at 1.99 a piece (blind bag start up)
This is just unbelievably awesome.
WHAT IS THIS, I DON'T EVENHASBRO HAS WON ALL TEH INTERNETS, ALL HAIL OUR OVERLORDS
That is wonderfully magnificent. I mean really. Huzzah to Hasbro times infinity.
It's possible with pretty much any item, it seems: http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_US/shop/details.cfm?guid=B24008CE-5056-900B-1019-7ED14838D691&product_id=28855
It's... bea-oooo-teeful :DNo, listen up, it's like this- you see, we ponies, we express our love with joy and fandom and havin' fun and lovin' and toleratin', but big corporations, they don't do it like that.Big corporations, they express their love with MAGNETO O_OIf you ain't seen it happen before, jes' goes to show you other big corporations just don't have the Magneto in their hearts, but ours does XD
URL manipulation fools!
HASBRO HAS ACHIEVED THE HIGHEST INTERNET RANK OF ALL OF TIME AND SPACE!
"You too can place Magneto into the corner of your screen for an entirely new dimension of viewing pleasure!"-Hasbro
Yea. It's just URL manipulation. I wish this was real though..
Wow. Just wow.*silently removes hat*
@Mike FI knew it had to be something like that. I went into the MLP products list and looked for Magneto but didn't see him.Guys, I think y'all done got trolled.
Someone beat me to it, but yeah, it's just looking up a Magneto toy thru the MLP website's skin. Not intentional on Hasbro's part :(http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_US/shop/details.cfm?guid=1E742A02-5056-900B-10C5-BBB7A584B5B2&product_id=37075
I think this is probably a URL manipulation...
Hasbro is Troll-tier confirmed.
"I wear red, the color of blood, in tribute to their lost lives. And the harder I try to cast it aside, to find the gentler path, the more irresistibly I am drawn back. I should have died myself with those that I loved. Instead I carted the bodies by the hundreds, by the thousands, from the death house to the crematorium, and the ashes to the burial ground. Asking myself now what I could not then — Why was I spared?"Truly, a great man.
@Mike FHa. I knew it.
So much Magneto today!
Sorry, this is just URL hacking. Here is a MLP toy set in the nerf shop.http://www.hasbro.com/nerf/en_US/shop/details.cfm?guid=75A9BE76-5056-900B-1003-F776F09FF739&product_id=28734&src=endeca
hasBros, you done good.
Hasbro you crazy like Pinkie Pie
Hasbro is... the coolest retail megacorp I have ever come across. This defies logic, and can only be mesured in TeraFonzies.
We've been had lads.Twas too good to be true.
By Celestia Hasbro. This is just... just insane.
Magneto is now a brony.All other arguments are now invalid.
MAGNETO is now officially a meme.Rejoice, Bronies. For now we have the MASTER OF MAGNETISM on our side. Today, the Hasbro store. Tomorrow, THE WORLD.
oh yea you can even put optimus prime in mlp shop: http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_US/shop/details.cfm?guid=1E9F8F04-5056-900B-1050-006F77B88770&product_id=29056but it was funny anyway :) MAGNETO FTW!
I wish people were smart enough not to be mislead quite this easily.Only positive thing I see here is...Magneto meme will go on a bit longer.
(Hate to burst the bubble, but I'm pretty sure someone figured out how to fake the guid in the URL to make the MLP storefront appear but give the Magneto product in place. I can't replicate it yet, but its clearly something you can modify through the URL....)
@fleshBasedProcessorWhat was that?Sorry, you're breaking up. I think you're losing service or something. But I'm sure whatever it was you said was very important.
I LAUGHED FOR LIKE 2 MINUTES STRAIGHT IM NOT EVEN LYING LOL
Dear sweet baby Luna, this just made the beginning of my week. Hasbro has partially redeemed itself for all the crap it does.Now then, three guesses as to what will make the end of my week, and the first two don't count.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yknRH8dRTBU (for those who missed the reason for all this madness)
Yep, this is URL manipulation. Oh well, the lulz were had.
Shenanigans... awesome, awesome shenans.
That's one way to get rid of your excess backstock of unsold Wolverine and the X-men toys.
ITT people who don't read the comments before posting. :D
If this were real, I would be freaking out so hard.If only...
Ach! Who set up us this one, I wonder?Seeeth?
@masemits easy you just remove src part of the product url and merge it with mlp shop.but it doesnt matter if its real or not, magneto will stay with us for a long time now!
as for how this is possible, i'm guessing it has to do with the product itself. but if it can be done that way, the reverse is possible (ponies in transformers shop, or any other hasbro store)
Hasbro is now the best company ever...
Hahaha, alright as funny as this is it's just url manipulation. You can set it up to view any item through the MLP site.Sorry ponies.
Naw, it's true! ;_;ALL big corporations express their love by Magneto. Microsoft? Bank Of America? Magneto. I'm tellin' ya. So if you go to say Bank of America, and you ain't got Magneto... well! Now what does that tell ya? XD
I don't even understand what is up with Magneto, and I still find it extremely humorous. Well played, Hasbro, well played! =)
This is cool. Also, what's with all this Magneto stuff lately? =O
This sort of silliness is what makes being a Brony so much fun!
Um...what might this be now? Is he like some kind of transformer? does he turn into a pony or something?
Sorry gents, it's fake. You can copy and paste any toy's URL in there.http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_US/shop/details.cfm?guid=6E325B86-19B9-F369-D93D-906BAC97AA14&product_id=23883
what is this i dont even
we've been trolled. URL manipulation, He was the only thing to ever troll the ponies, and now somebody used him to troll the bronies!
I figured this out as soon as I saw it, then had to look for some fun combos :)
As a lot of others have already pointed out, this is actually a tricky (and funny) piece of URL manipulation. The product doesn't appear in the MLP storefront when you scroll through item by item, which should tell you that it isn't actually listed there. It can be further demonstrated that by extracting parts of the URL from an item from a different Hasbro store (like the X-Men section), that item can also be introduced into the MLP storefont template: http://tinyurl.com/3tfwy9z. Other examples have been provided by bronies above. So, while this is still very entertaining, it's almost certainly not Hasbro behind it. I hate to be the one to ruin it, though, and it's still pretty funny, so the question now becomes: who was clever enough to do it in the first place and send it for publication here?
WHAT IS GOING ON?!
by the way, could you put a video in there too? if so, i demand to see this on a mlp website http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-Y2RfiMe8c&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL
@Foal PapersI wonder if this could also be used to show ponies in other hasbro pages?
Why must every thing good be filled with lies, first it was cake now magneto whats next?!?!
Magneto is the best pony!... Wait.
uhm what?... were they listening to the marathon too?!?!
Here's another good one:http://www.hasbro.com/gijoe/en_US/shop/details.cfm?guid=8EF5162B-19B9-F369-1023-0D012BBE0660&product_id=27172&src=endeca
It's all secrets and lies with those ponies.
I don't...I don't even...I just...I...
Dear lords of Valhalla, I can't believe how close they are to us bronies. Way to go Hasbro!
If only NINTENDO WERE THIS MAD! XP
Awww URL trickery.CURSE YOU INTERNETCURRRRRRRRRSE YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
I laughed so fucking hard.
An explanation over this being URL manipulation and not actual store updates by Hasbro should be added after the break. You can make almost any item appear in other stores in the Hasbro site.
I saw this link Sunday morning at around 11 AM central time. I watched the livestream when the whole Magneto thing went down during the singing of At the Gala. Hilarious... That means that there were less than 8-9 hours between my first notice of this link, and the magneto event. That's fast! I have to imagine it was up before 11AM for a time as well. I was amazed to see this pop up the way it did. Awesome!
I loled SOOO HARD
I C wat U did thar! Still cool. It just means that a PRONIE figured out how to implement AWESOME in a link to create the best retail meme evar! yay!
I was wondering what if it was legit or not. For Hasbro to legally pull a stunt like that, they would need to buy the rights and stuff
Lets take it to the next level... Lets get Magneto to pop up in "If you liked this product, try these" results! LOL!
Dang! They acted fast to get in on this! Awesome. You can tell that they're definitely paying attention to us.
I fucking love this fandom and everything that's occurred from it.
Into the Gala metal things, into the gala sell some magnets.
@Jpifer17well they actually own magneto toy rights, they sell it in their xman shop.
its fake, you just take the toy directory and paste it into a hasbro host extention like nerf see http://www.hasbro.com/nerf/en_US/shop/details.cfm?guid=F4DC0C22-6F95-1014-AC4F-9CBB844E488B&product_id=23883 now nerf has Magneto toys. Nice try but I'm an internet Sleuth.
That's...That's actually fucking awesome XD Okay, I woke up really angry, well not angry more like indiferent, but this has made my morning. I'm going to work a lil happier now.Thank you Seth!
Fucking magnets, how do they work?/shot
Fucking brilliant. Sooo can't stop laughing at this now. Good going Hasbro.
Successful troll is successful.
magneto confirmed to have a cameo in season 2
ok, now I HAVE to see what the whole Magneto thing is about.I was going to listen to the stream, but sadly I forgot about it until it was already over. Seems I missed out on so much. :(
what's with the magneto things..?
OKAY. I go catch up to the voice recording for that MAGNETO joke, and now I almost died from laughter from the Magneto Gala sing-along! So Hasbro... You are god.
Soooo they can't make a decent pony toy, but they indulge in some stupid meme to win brownie points with their fanbase?
Magneto confirmed for best ponyIan McKellen confirmed for voicing Discord.
Holy shit! Simply unforgettable. I <3 Hasbro
Some guy looking for toys for his eight-year-old daughter is SO confused right now.
To everyone on this post:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSXxB_FxLbQ
URL manipulation. Magneto trolled us. Again.
Oh no no. Dashie is best pony. Magento is LOVE XD
That was quick!
Jean Grey in the MLP store.Sorry to ruin the magic. http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_US/shop/details.cfm?guid=6E325B86-19B9-F369-D93D-906BAC97AA14&product_id=25534&src=endeca
Hasbro is watching usssssss
Epic trolling. I fell for it at first.
@EonMaster ok, I saw the 22 minute vid with the At the Gala sing-a-long that Magneto takes over.I must say, that was awesome. Now I REALLY wish I hadn't forgotten about the stream.
lol for those of you who don't keep up with the bronyville stuff, the guys on the bronyville podcast did a 12 hour event stream, a full on, ponython of awesome, interviews with some of the staff of the show, the super pony beat guy, all that; and by the time they finally made their way to the grand gala episode, the annoying little magneto pop up that wouldn't leave had pretty much claimed its rightful spot at the peak of all internet memes. They even sung a parody of the Grand Galloping Gala song, ft Magneto. I just can't believe Hasbro actually propelled their awesomeness off of the magneto hype. This is tear jerking.
Wait can someone tell me what magneto has to do with my little pony??
Yay URL fun.
Alright everyone, it's time to go home, Hasbro has just won the fucking internet!Thanks for playing.
I see what they did there. Unfortunately, not Hasbro. Others probably figured it out too, just I'm too lazy to read through the comments
Is this real? Cuz it looks real! If so; AWESOME!
aw, should have read the comments b4 posting :(
$8 for that low quality piece of crap? WTF is Hasbro trying to pull other than make a shout out?
http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_US/shop/details.cfm?guid=45139BE4-5056-900B-10DF-7FD6B7567129&product_id=23883http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_US/shop/details.cfm?guid=8F384F39-19B9-F369-10E0-14CBE065F607&product_id=23883http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_US/shop/details.cfm?guid=4E520681-5056-900B-1066-774880DB9553&product_id=23883http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_US/shop/details.cfm?guid=114EB9FE-5056-900B-105B-740D7B010B45&product_id=23883http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_US/shop/details.cfm?guid=7905B41E-74A9-1014-9DA4-E72D6E07FB5A&product_id=23883and Pinkie Pie will appear as a secret Avenger on the movie
I saw the stream, but didn't really think it was really that humorous (seemed like a hoot to them thanks to sleep dep). I have ads pop up on streams all the time. Can we move on?
Also, to everyone asking about what the hell this Magneto shit is about: A small ad featuring Magneto (hawking the new Xmen movie) kept popping up during the Bronyshow stream the other night, forcing them to repeatedly click off the add to make Magneto go away. They then began to sing the gala song with Magneto inspired lyrics and then cracked jokes about it like it was the most legendary thing ever. Sorry guys, I find funny things funny. Not this.
This is awesome xD
This gave me the BIGGEST smile this morning! Hasbro, I loved you before, but I want to give you all the things I own now.
I got a bigger laugh out of all the people that thought this was real XD.
@BobbyzeroWhat was that? I couldn't hear you, I was too busy being optimistic and full of life. Yes, it's fake. I wouldn't have figured it out if I hadn't read the comments. It's a pity too, because I was just about prepared to forgive Hasbro for not giving us proper Celestia figure.
This is getting ridiculous, in a good way.
I don't care if it was just a trick it's still awesome.
I don't care if this is a clever fake, it's still BRILLIANT.
I am so buying this just out of the shear awesomeness of it all...
@BobbyzeroIt was funnier if you'd stayed up until you were seein' double and laughin' at silly things :)
The whut o_OAwesome xDEven if I hate this boring magneto meme.
Fake and awesome.
MAGNETOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!Ah, horse apples! He trolled us again XD
http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_US/shop/details.cfm?guid=C2BB0333-19B9-F369-D9F1-FF26EDB1E53B&product_id=25180So yeah. Damn, I was exited there for a minute. Who came up with this? :[
Oh celestia this is great. This meme is one of those 'you had to be there' moment type thingsPlus everything is funny at 9am
I posted the comment with the link to the first Magneto post after accidentally finding it from google. Let me be clearer: I did not edit the url of the site. I found it like it is now. I did not mail this to Seth.
*laughing too hard to comment properly*
I'd rather get Pink Celestia than that horrible meme thing.
I predict somebody at Hasbro doing this for real for the next April Fool's. And maybe sticking surprise Ponies in other stores.I predict somebody at Hasbro doing this for real for the next April Fool's. And maybe sticking surprise Ponies in other stores.
Guys, Magneto just trolled all of you...AGAIN!
no words can adequately describe how poorly i am capable of handling how awesome this is
Have we all made the connection between Rainbow Dash's 20% cooler Gala dress and Magneto's ensemble?http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lrf5s8lv8Z1ql7g6wo1_400.pngYeah...
If there is any evidence that Hasbro has an eye on the fan base it is right here! :D
That's my day. Right there.
I don't get it, where'd all this Magneto stuff come from?I've never really watched the X-men..Someone wrote a fake fan-fic that just says "MAGNETO" several times, Seth thought it was funny, Hasbro recognized it and put it in the MLP store?
Makes me think I missed something. I just can't watch a whole day worth of live stream. Someone please make a highlight reel.
It's FAKE.Usage of URL manipulation.Someone did this one:http://www.hasbro.com/nerf/en_US/shop/details.cfm?guid=BD9B4F66-5056-900B-104C-F1DAE68E28B8&product_id=27968
BWAHAHAHAHA! Amazing... Just pure amazing. "Oh Rarity you're wearing a lot of metal i find that... Attractive"
@PredatorDuckWay to ruin the fun that I don't get.
Y'all too gullible. Sigh.
omg we got freakin trolled again!!!
Hasbro? More like Hasbronies!
The URL might be manipulated but I still want this Magneto just because...because of ponies that's why!
Where yo curly mustache at?
hey hasbro, how about some more toys for the male viewers then hm?
