I'll (attempt) to keep this updated as new panels show up on Youtube. Consider this the "megapost". EQD tends to move pretty quick with the whole hourly update thing, so I'll keep this headlined at the top so you don't lose all the ones we have posted!
Bronycon Opening Ceremony
Musicians in the Morning
Behind the Voice
Friendship is Witchcraft (The Panel was primarily the episode, so hit this until it pops up!)
Equestria Daily Panel (Hard to hear, we had really bad audio issues)
Amy Keating Rogers: Smile Smile Smile
Costume Contest and Photoshoots
John de Lancie Q&A
Psychology of Bronies
Bronycon 2012 Interview with John, Lauren, and Tara
The opening ceremonies aren't really a full on panel, but the whole FiM team makes an awesome entrance, Lauren Faust especially. It's almost... motivational.
Check out the video in glorious livestream quality here!
And now the alternate camera version here!
We have a whole pile of upcoming animation projects on the way, as well as several awesome ones already available. This one is dedicated to all those hard working artists out there, from those with dreams of releasing a full fledged fan made episode, to the ones the ones that are more interested in two to three minute shorts.
All parts are once again livestream quality for those that missed it earlier. Higher quality will be posted as it becomes available.

You have seen their music uploaded to EQD countless times, and now you get to see a select group of them talk about it for the good people at Bronycon. The musicians panel also clocks in at four links for now in livestream quality, but we will update all of these posts as better stuff comes in!
Have some links:

We have a ton of stuff coming in from Bronycon, and will start filtering it out throughout the week. Someone sent us three parts of the Behind the Voice panel in glorious SD livestream quality but I'm sure a bunch of you missed it, or want to discuss it!

And a bonus Nicole Oliver interview.
We have a different kind of album to start you all off with today. This one is a compilation of a huge group of lesser known musicians in the fandom all contributing to a single album. There are some pretty awesome tracks in here, you should probably go give it a shot! Their teaser is after the break.
We also have a few more albums as well, from rock to a full Beatles album remake. Click the covers for them!
It looks like a live interview is going to pop up on Celestia Radio with John De Lancie here at Bronycon. Have some copy paste information below!
Dashie of My Little Dashie, in cooperation with Purple Tinker of The Old Grey Mare, is delighted to bring you an interview with JOHN DE LANCIE, beloved voice of Discord (and Q) and spokesdraconequus for BronyCon: The Documentary. This interview will be brought to you live from the BronyCon con venue in beautiful Seaponycaucus, Moo Jersey!And it's over! thanks for joining us!
The fun starts at 10 PM Eastern, Saturday, June 30, 2012. It will be hosted on Celestia Radio. Save the time!
We had an Octavia shirt pop up on Welovefine, and Scratch/DJ Pon-3 has been canon forever, but now we have a card that actually combines the two! Octavia especially is a pretty huge one. I'm sure the cards will flood the internet in the next few days based on how many are floating around at Bronycon, and they definitely have more cool stuff like this planned. Hope you guys are ready to collect!
Thanks to Limechan for the image.
(Added some Time Turner!)
A ton of you have been asking for this, and its popping up on YouTube now, so I'm ghetto posting it from Red Lobster! This is the full Lauren Faust panel in livestream quality. Enjoy it! And Trixie!
Find it here.
Update 3: Alternate link here!
Update 2: Now in HD here and after the break!
Music Remix: Welcome To Ponyville (Finally There Remix) / Smile, Smile, Smile - Orchestrated / So Many Wonders Rock!
We have a couple of remixes this time around, going with the classics instead of the season finale stuff for once. Check them out below!
1.) Welcome To Ponyville (Finally There Remix)
2.) Smile, Smile, Smile - Orchestrated
3.) So Many Wonders Rock!
It's been awhile since we spotlit the above comic, When we first did some months back it was barely a chapter long, but since then it has grown to encompass four chapters and is still growing! Click above to be sent to the comic's main page.
I also have a couple of other comics for you guys as well! Check then out below.
Some really cool news is coming out the pipeline from our friends at Bronies for Good. They've written an impressively eloquent press release, so rather than doing my usual thing and talking them up for you, I'm going to let them do it in their own words:
What’s Canni doing at that lectern? She’s auctioning wonderful artwork, plushies, customs, collector’s items, and much more—all for charity!
However, this photo is from the future, from August 12th this year. For her charity auction to become a grand success, we—Galacon and Bronies for Good—depend on your artistic skill and generosity!
If you have it in your heart to donate anything that you think might get some bids (and thus bits), please contact auction@grand-galloping-gala.
eu. Thank you!
The money raised (apart from a minor security margin of 1%) will benefit our Seeds of Kindness fundraiser and thus an orphanage in Kampala, Uganda. The orphanage is already taking good care of many children whose parents have died of HIV/AIDS, offering them a new home and a new family. Currently, they have to pay a high rent, though, so they have everything planned out to build their own house, where they would not only save the rent but could even expand to accommodate at least fifty children. To ensure that this new safe haven, the Safe Project, will be self-sufficient in the long term, they want to start a small chicken farming business, the returns of which will be invested into food for the children, their general well-being, and of course their education, to ultimately open the doors for them to a new, brighter future.
If you, dear reader, should happen to be one of the esteemed creators of our beloved show, then this shout-out is also and especially going out to you! Thank you again!
A Few Reminders
- The end of this month, midnight of June 30th, marks the deadline after which we will determine the top donors for Seeds of Kindness, and thus the lucky winners of these prizes.
- My Little Remix is already working on the next charity album, Faithful and Strong. If you are a musician and would like to contribute a track to the new album, please see this thread.
- For Faithful and Strong, we are also looking for material and digital gifts for our donors, so digital art and wallpaper packs are just as welcome as customs, paintings, scarfs, and plushies. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looks like you non-bronycon folks get this one early! Friendship is Witchcraft has released their seventh awesome episode on their Youtube channel, complete with even more new Pinkie Pie music. Check it out above!
I had a few people request that I toss a post up strictly for Bronycon discussion, so here you go! Talk about what you are seeing in the livestreams, or if you are here, share your experiences when you find some downtime!
Description: Twilight devises a way to end a certain threat against Equestria, once and for all. She attempts a powerful, dangerous spell and, unfortunately, everything goes exactly as she plans. Her actions aren't driven by the purest of motives, and her disillusionment leads her down the road to dire consequences. . . a road somepony has walked before her.Hooves of Clay
Additional Tags: Twilight deals poorly with disillusionment.
And that concludes the card releases! These things look like they are going to be a ton of fun once they officially drop. With all of our meetups it probably wont be too difficult to trade into a full set either.

And of course, check out the pre-orders on Toywiz here!
- Crystal Princess Ponies Collection: “Princess Celestia and Princess Luna believe that Princess Cadance will bring happiness to the Crystal Empire!” Put up by hahashuan on Taobao; discovered by MrPony on MLP Arena. This set is where the Cadance-sized Luna that’s been floating around on Taobao and eBay comes from, and it also tells us more about the Crystal Empire than just “Welcome to the Crystal Empire, a magical place full of hidden secrets! The ponies shine and sparkle here!”
- Friendship Express Train Around Town Playset: “All aboard the Friendship Express Train! Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash and Apple Bloom have tickets to ride the train. It rolls along—around bends and over bridges—and takes them wherever they want to go!” This one actually popped up legitimately, from the Australian store Big W. It’s listed on their website, and Oak23 and an Anonymous (the two of whom posted a few of the attached pics) on Ponychan have both found it in Big W stores IRL.
