• Canterlot Castle Full Set

    Source: Lady Moondancer
    For those of you who are curious about some of the new pony stuff that was recently released, this is the full canterlot castle set .  The entire thing costs 40 bucks, and includes both Luna and Pinkie Pie.  The actual castle itself is made of cardboard...yes cardboard.

    It includes a whole mountain of random accessory things, some of which come from other g3 toys.  It's not really a brony centered product (obviously) but for the collectors out there, it might be neat!

    I'm not really sure what the correlation is between Pinkie Pie and Luna, but that is totally a wedding cake... just sayin.

    You can find the thread about it here

  • Spike's Quest Game Engine Demo #3 Released



    Misterbull has sent us another engine demo for the game Spike's Quest. Seth said he tested it and it works fine, so I'm going to forgo that step. So, if it's a virus, it's Seth's fault, not mine.

    Misterbull would like to emphasize that this is not indicative of the final game, but is simply a test of the engine. He releases these tests about once every Wednesday. If you'd like to keep up with the development of the game, there's a thread on Ponychan here that you can bookmark for more information.

    The actual game can be downloaded here.
  • Drawfriend Stuff #140

    This drawfriend post is epic.  So much good art today!

    And that totally isn't because of the awesome Trixie in socks, Trixie with wings, Trixie with Twilight, or Trixie the musician.  I promise. 

    Also new poll. Who is the best pony in socks? Going up in 5 minutes under the chat button on the right.  Lets end it once and for all!

  • Mystery Song Solved!

    Go Daniel Ingram!  Apparently that Twilight Sparkle plush actually sings an extended version of FiM introduction.

    Now someone go bug Hasbro into releasing it so we can remix it into....

    • Eurobeat
    • 16 bit

    Also the Twilight Sparkle plushie is actually purple, she just turned pink in the video! 

    Thanks to Flutterguy for the heads up!
  • Singing Twilight Sparkle Plushie With a New Song?

    This is actually really neat.  This thing has 3 different songs it cycles through: The FiM theme song, Winter Wrap Up, and...a mystery song?

    It sounds like a modified intro theme.  I think Daniel Ingram confirmed that the actual intro for season 2 would remain the same, but this could have been a small modification to how it starts.

    That or the Twilight Sparkle solo he mentioned a while back. 

    You can find the video after the break!

    NOTE: She only looks pink due to the lighting!

  • iOS Game has TONS of pony references.

    Source
    Either Hasbro gave them a license, or these guys are completely ignoring copyright restrictions. Deflex, an indie style graphically insane game for the IOS was recently released by Llamasoft, makers of games like Space Giraffe. 

    Not only is the full on Derpy Hooves model used, but Fluttershy can be heard in the background cheering you on as you play. 

    I'm really curious about how they are getting away with this one. 

    You can find a review of it here, and the game itself is up on the iOS market place. 

    Thanks to Eytan for the heads up!

  • Just News Mode is Already Here!

    Look at Pinkie Pie! Shes amazed!

    I have been getting a lot of requests in email for a "Just News Mode", as well as a bunch of people begging me to not post anything except for news on /co/. 

    I'd like to point out that "news" button on the main bar.  That already is "Just News Mode".    If you want to filter art/pmv/fanfiction/plushies/ect, just bookmark that instead. It moves pretty slow, since there isn't a whole lot to cover, and a few other things like to sneak into it, but at the rate it goes it's pretty easy to manage.

    Just a simple PSA from EQD! This post however will not fall into the news category, as those who have it filtered anyway probably already know about it right? 
  • Official Sketches and More Season 2!

    Sibsy over on Deviant Art (One of the animators working on FiM) recently dropped these on her DA page, along with the message:
    "Wrapping up work on the last episode of season 2 of MLP....this episode never seems to end!"
     These guys are awesome.  Also filly twilight is endlessly cute.  

    You can find the DA page here if you want to follow her here!

    Thanks to Calpain for the report!

  • Upcoming Derpy Toy?



    Remember that official fan forum I talked about like a million years ago? Well, I was just leafing through it this morning and I found an interesting back-and-forth between a fan and the page's admins. This was apparently posted on Tuesday, so, apologies if you've seen this already. I'm slow.

    If there was indeed a Derpy toy released, I highly doubt it would be called such- both for legal and aesthetic reasons. Do you think they'd go with Bright Eyes? or Ditzy Doo? Or is Cereal just reading too much into this?

    What do you ponies think?
