• Equestrian Inquirer #39


    The 39th installment of the Equestrian Inquirer has been released! Bask in the glorious totally 100% accurate news after the break, or in the PDF here!

    Copy Paste:

    Get ready for a very special episode of the Equestria Inquirer. Joe is still in China, and things are not going well. There's panic in the streets, rainbooms in the sky, and not a single taco to be found. Can Joe, Princess Celestia, and the Mane 6 avert an international incident? Or will Rainbow Dash inadvertently start World War III? There's only one way to find out, but you'd better be prepared before you click "Play". This time we're not messing around. So buckle up, bronies. Horseapples' about to get real.

  • Summer Funimation Project: Screenwriting Contest



    A Group going by the name of Bit Bucket Brigade is hosting a summer funimation project dedicated to building a fan created episode for everyone to enjoy, and want the community as a whole to decide on what exactly it will entail!

    The first round is focusing on screen writing, so get your keyboards fired up and ready to go! The full details can be found after the break, along with links to all resources regarding the project.


  • Mini Collections, Blindbags, and More listed on Big Bad Toy Store


    It looks like those toys announced a few days ago on the MLP facebook page are coming in August.  A website called Big Bad Toy Store has these and more listed up in their pre-order section.

    Along with those are the second set of Blind Bag ponies, and a bunch of other new toys.  It sounds like August is going to be pretty crazy on the merch!  Hopefully they are a bit more available than those blind bag sets from Toys R' Us a while back.  I'm definitely looking forward to picking up a Gilda.

    Thanks to James for the heads up! 
  • Comic: Epic battle / Human Alternative / My Little Pwnee


    Underped link comic edition! That sure was entertaining yesterday...  We have two starring Celestia this time around.  That isn't too common these days.  You know what IS common? Lyra jokes.  Have one of those too.

  • Hasbro Sends Cease and Desist to WhiteDove


    As many of you have noticed from a recent report on The Daily Dot, WhiteDove, famous for (among other things) selling a plushie to Lauren Faust, is being pressured by Hasbro to remove all information and deviations pertaining to the sale of plushies on her DeviantART account.

    WhiteDove herself has confirmed that she was not singled out by the company, but rather that an unknown individual reported her to them. There has been a lot of speculation on the part of the fanbase as to why Hasbro would do something like this when they are not involved in the plushie market themselves. But the situation is more complicated than it would appear at a glance.

    United States trademark law is crystal clear on the issue of IP defense. Once you become informed of a person or company profiting off of your intellectual property as WhiteDove was with My Little Pony, you are required to mount a defense against the offender. Failure to do so can and will result in the voiding of your trademark and all the protections thereof. The ramifications for this echo far, far beyond the sale of pony plushes. Hasbro has long been squandering an opportunity to make a huge amount of money by marketing an official plush, but their business strategies are their own. But even if they choose to turn down our money, by actively turning a blind eye to the sale of fanworks, they risk losing their capacity to market anything to us at all.

    Thus far, there have been no reports of other high-profile plush makers being targeted, indicating this is not part of a larger-scale operation. But that doesn't stop it from sucking. All sympathies to WhiteDove for being the victim of very unfortunate circumstances.

  • Welovefine Announces Kids Tees



    Remember back in the day when Friendship is Magic was technically a kids show?  Well, Welovefine does! They also realize some of you are actually parents, and the average pony shirt might be a bit too big for your children.  What better way to remedy this than introducing a lineup of shirts specifically for their size?  Right now they have nine of their most popular designs up, with more on the way. 

    Head on over to this page to check them out!
