    And to balance out that Derpy comic from earlier, we have the other potential personality.   The muffin thing is cute, but Genius Derpy is way cooler!

    And below we have some cute... because comics don't require comedy to be awesome.

    I always preferred this style of Derpy Personality.

  • Pony Collection Set Sneaking into Toys R' Us

    That blind bag pony set I posted a few weeks ago is finally showing up in stores. 

    This specific one was found at a Toys R' Us in Tuscon, Arizona. 

    I'm not sure if every Toys R' Us has them right now, but it might be worth it to give them a call at the very least. 

    Thanks to Asia for the heads up!

  • 30 Million Pageviews Contest!!


    So, I was just thinking to myself that I hadn't really exploded my inbox in a while, when I was asked to host a contest! We're approaching 30 million page views (which was a stupidly huge number the last time I checked), and Jake Heritagu wants to make it the most memorable landmark yet! But he needs your help to do it. The short version is that if you send me comics and pictures of ponies celebrating the big event, you could potentially win prizes. Prizes like Steam purchases and drawings of your own request. Major, major props to Jake for fronting the prize pool out of his own pocket saddlebag (silly Phoe, ponies don't have pockets!). Find the full rules in the man's own words after this convenient page break:

  • Octavia Cello Game

    Distoorted over at the Bronies United Livejournal group has created an Octavia cello playing game.  It's similar to that piano app from a while back.

  • Pouches, Glimmer Wing Pony, and Train Car

    This is a pretty heavy merch day!  All sorts of random stuff is popping up.  Above is a pencil pouch found at Wal-Mart of all places, retailing at $3.97 (Canadian).

    And for the Sweetie Belle fans out there, another part of that train set I posted a while back has popped up.  This one was found, once again, on Taobao... the goddamn matrix of the internet.

    And finally, an addition to the Glimmer Wings line of ponies.  Unlike Rainbow Dash, this one at least fits...somewhat.  At least she did at some point have wings in the show in this style. 


     
  • New Blind Bag Ponies

     For those of you out there looking to CATCH EM ALL , a few new blind bag ponies have popped up.

    It's unclear if this system is going to continue to expand, but from what I've been hearing outside the USA, these things are selling ridiculously well.  I'm curious about how they will be treated once they head to the states.

    I'm a bit disappointed though.  This is the PERFECT way to release some background ponies.  Even if they don't have the fanon names, it would be amazing to see an Octavia or Bonbon pop up. 

    You can find more below, including a Sparkly Applejack... and some green thing

    Heey, JackleApp did an actual Lyra and Bon-Bon song.  I think this is the first time these two have had a track to call their own.

    Wallpaper compilation time!  That was quick wasn't it?

    All of them found after the break, and all should be their correct resolutions (Though this post is going to be a bit laggier than a drawfriend since they aren't actually thumb nailed, hence the smaller number)

  • Music: FiM Opening / At the Gala Colt Openings

    So much media lately.  I can't imagine what it will be like when season 2 rolls around and we suddenly have all of that brand new content to make pmv's/remixes out of.

    Anyway have some more morning colt music, for those of you that like this stuff!

  • Nightly Roundup #69

    Applejack hasn't had a nightly roundup in a while!  I've always considered her an early to bed, early to rise style pony though. 

    Have some news!
  • 4chan Pony Wars

    I figured I'd wait a few days to see if it was just another rogue mod causing trouble again, but apparently the issue continues to grow, now moving from /co/ to /b/.  

    (Someone on Ponychan)
    Regardless of the pony threads that are going relatively strong over there right now, it sounds like random bannings are still happening. 

    I'm not sure how 4chan's heirarchy runs, but moot was the one that fixed it last time, so moot is probably the one to contact this time.  There was even a rumor of an actual /pony/ board in progress a while back, but that apparently poofed. 

    If you do get banned, and don't know anything about proxies/rotating IP addresses, you might as well hit up Ponychan(Tame) or Fimchan(Clop). 

    I'm sure it will all blow over again eventually anyway as 4chan mods get bored. 



  • YTPMV: BRONYQUEST / Flutter F

    It took a while for an actual quest YTPMV to pop up.  Bunch of slackers  in my opinion!

    Also another YTPMV just cause.
