• Megacon Annouces Tara Strong


    Joining John de Lancie and Andy Price at Megacon is the brony queen herself - Tara Strong!  I wonder how many others they will recruit before it happens? It's way out there in March, so I can't imagine it would be difficult to get a few more by then!

    You can find the convention website here!

    Thanks to mrjay786 for the heads up!

  • Tumblr Spotlight: Pirate Day Edition


    Yar, you landlubbers! Didn't think I would completely forget Pirate Day did you? As a special treat tonight we've got a special pirate themed edition of the Tumblr Spotlight for you! So protect your booty and feed your favorite parrot as we dive right in!

    Our first tumblr tonight stars a plucky pirate Rainbow Dash! I can't adequately describe what you'll find therein, so let the artist tell you himself!

    "What happens when the Element of Loyalty gets an itch for high-seas adventures?  Rainbow Dash becomes a pegasus pirate in the Tumblr Ask Pirate Dash.  Joined by her trusty first-mate Twilight Sparkle, known as Bookworm, along with Scootaloo and Deck Hand Derpy, the crew pillage and plunder their way through the Tumblr world.  Whether it’s throwing cannonballs at Trixie, indirectly insulting yellow pegasi, or dropping a pun, there’s always an exciting adventure with Pirate Dash."

    Check it out for some pirate themed fun along with our other pirate tumblrs after the break!

  • Pony Collection Contest - Fluttershy Promo Cards Up for Grabs


    Friendship is Magic has been around for almost two years now, and throughout all this time I'm sure a bunch of you have either accidentally bought a ton of pony merch, or collect it as a hobby.  Perhaps you have dedicated a section of your room to it, or maybe an entire wing of your house?  It's pretty easy to get carried away!

    It's time to battle it out with the rest of the fandom and give the collectors out there a chance to show off all that pony! 

    And for the best of the best, we have some much deserved Fluttershy Promo cards (The ones that are still up on ebay for crazy amounts) up for grabs.  The top three largest/most creative collections will each receive one!

    This will primarily revolve around G4 collections, but older gen fans are free to include their older ponies as well!

    Head on down past the break for all the nitty gritty details, and information on submitting yours. 
  • More Shirts at Welovefine


    Welovefine has added an armada of new designs to their already massive pony collection.  Everything from Lyra with foam hands to a couple of new Derpy ones.  I wonder if any of you millionaires out there have a collection of them?  Now that would be funny to see. 

    I think I'll run a pony collection contest actually! How many of you would be interested in something like that?  A battle to see who's pony armada is the best? 

    Anyway, head on over here for the listing of new shirts, or after the break for quick images. 

  • Becomin' Popularrr

    Blackgryphon is at it again with another Rarity animation, this time with a tiny surprise: Tabitha herself provided the voice. That's right! The ever talented and awesome Tabitha St. Germain did the voiceover for this little piece! I'm always amazed how integrated the fandom is with the show staff and VAs. Simply amazing!
