The My Little Pony Fair is one of the older collector conventions that happens on a yearly basis. It is not a completely brony-focused event like our personal conventions, but there will be a pretty heavy g4 (Friendship is Magic) presence this time around from the sounds of it!
One of the more interesting things about these conventions is the attendance of actual Hasbro employees. They tend to do Q&A panels and general announcements. If you ever wanted a more direct line to the guys making the toys, this might be your best bet!
After the break, Summer Hayes, coordinator for the event, has given us a huge press release into what exactly is planned, and what you, as g4 fans, can expect to see. Check it out!
You can also find their website here!
