I've always wondered what it would be like to go into space. Who knows where we will be in 50 years? Maybe we'll be getting a free pony with every spaceship purchase!
As we contemplate the mysteries of space ponies, read some news!
Fluttershy kind of dominated this one. We haven't had a YTPMV post in forever. Find them all below!

Topdraw Animation website there is a section labeled "My Little Pony DVD", most likely a TBA name. When clicked, it shows the information found above. It looks like we may be seeing a Friendship is Magic movie in the near future. While the completion date lists it at December 21st, chances are it wont actually show up until long after that (based on what we usually see from Topdraw).
66 minutes of glorious pony though. Can you handle it?

Almost a month ago, we linked to details about super voice actress Ashleigh Ball's band Hey Ocean creating a Kickstarter page to fund a world tour. So far so good! They've reached their minimum goal, which means they're going to get to start traveling and performing at all sorts of venues.
But as awesome as that is, there's still a chance to make it at least twenty per-- ok, ok don't hurt me. The kickstarter hasn't ended yet, and every dollar more can help them get that much further out. Maybe even to an area you can attend at! If you've never seriously listened to them, Hey Ocean is a refreshingly genuine band that rocks the hell out of acoustic guitars for a jazzy, poppy, fizzy blend of groove for you to enjoy and smile at. And right now a fifteen dollar pledge gets you access to their Side-B tracks and bonus songs that haven't been released anywhere else.
I'm not going to tell you that you have an obligation to contribute to this even if Ashleigh is the one who makes Rainbow Dash and Applejack come to life every time an episode of FiM comes on. But you do have a pretty unique opportunity to score yourself some great music on the cheap (their latest album is a perk at the five dollar level) while helping to make dreams come true. You should hunt down a song or two and see if this is the sort of thing that's worth opening your wallet for. What do you have to lose?
As many of you have probably picked up by now, Glowy Zecora started showing up about a month ago. Since her release, she has had two price increases and some stores literally can't keep her in stock. If we link her Toys R' Us page she tends to disappear an hour later, followed by mass emails talking about backlogs and waiting periods. She was also the first toy to sell out at her booth during Comic Con, going up against juggernauts like Doctor Who and Batman.
Needless to say, shes not having any difficulty being stupid popular. But just in case you are on the fence and want a bit of a look at the deeper aspects of the toy, continue on after the break for my review on Glowy Zecora!
It looks like Yandy.com wants to jump on the pony train. These costumes were recently listed for the 2012 holiday season. While not all of them actually list the pony they are mimicking, hinting at them being somewhat "unnofficial", the Pinkie Pie one does drop it in the description of the piece. They are all Yandy.com exclusives with 100+ dollar price tags. Hope all you girls out there are in the Halloween mood!
Have a list:
Thanks to Dawn Sundancer for the heads up!

At least, those are Twilight Sparkle's thoughts. But something is stirring in lands to the south. Soon she will find that she and her friends are not the only ones who are after the legendary Tears. And so what starts as a simple
research trip is soon to escalate into the greatest journey of the young ponies' lives, filled with new friends and foes, incredible danger and great adventure!

Pinkie Pie wanted to be the header today so she can say hi to you all out there. How could I say no considering how fuzzy she is here! Don't you just want to give her a hug?
Time for plushie ponies you guys!

Note on Future Submissions: If you are including an eBay link only in your submission, please try and include a picture with it. This will save me some time when compiling these. Thanks!

Since when did goggles become a thing? I never looked at any girl before pony an said "Wow, she looks good in goggles! More girls should wear goggles!"
Have some art while I re-evaluate my life.
Fluttershy in Field
All of these awesome Photo Finish vocal tracks are making me really want more of her in season 3! I wonder if she will ever make a return? At least we have awesome fan animation of her already!
Check this new one by Stormwolf out after the break!
We have also recieved reports on the Pinkie Pie ornament from last year popping up in Canada. Chances are it will invade everywhere soon, though usually American Greetings rotates things out for collectable status.
Anyway, find these here!
In celebration of the Benders Vs. Bronies competition (which raised over 25,000 bucks for charity), Reddit has changed their official site logo to a pony for the day. Shes kinda cute with that little alien dongle thingy.
Anyway, you can find reddit here if for some reason you haven't been there before, even if by accident.
We finally have a game release! Who would have thought?
For those that haven't been following the project, Welcome to Ponyville is a visual novel style game, where you interact with the various characters of Ponyville while building up a reputation throughout the town. This is the first act in a planned set of releases from the guys over at Filly Games.
And for those worry, this is a strictly work safe game. It's kind of funny how visual novels tend to lean toward the unsafe territory!
Anyway, head on down past the break for their release notes, as well as a link to go play it and radio ad!
There isn't an actual image for the cover available yet, but Midtown Comics is promising a muffin eating grey pegasus on their exclusive version of he comic.
It's pretty pricy at a regular 10.00 (On sale for 8.50 currently), but I guess that's how promos roll right? Head on over to this page to pre-order it. The release date is 11/14.
Thanks to Joseph for the heads up!

[Sad][Adventure] "This story shows us, in painstaking detail, the costs of war and how much impact a single life can have. This comes highly recommended; I despise most human in Equestria stories, but this one won me over with its intricate weaving of history and emotion. If only most of my history courses back in school had been this gripping!" -Pre-reader who likes air pirates

Yesterday, Fluttershy hummed happily as she watered her garden.
The two events are not unrelated.

Yep, you guys caught me! This is actually how I go about getting news for the Roundup, especially for delicious cake. Hey, don't scoff, it's a dangerous business going out there! The threat of being killed by frosting or a meetup avalanche is a very real and present danger every day.
Anyhow, enough silliness, time for some news guys! Thanks to UC77 for the picture!
