Another DVD has popped up on Amazon, this time rollin with the title of "Friendship Express". There hasn't been an announcement about what exactly is on the disc, but it is released by "Shout! Factory", similar to the other FiM three pack. I guess this is the official way we will be getting episodes. Hopefully the 110 minutes on each one includes some special features.
Check out the pre-order page here, with a release date of February 28.
UPDATE: Looks like it's the same DVD As before with a new name due to title conflicts! Oh well.
