Friendship is Magic hosts a wide variety of mystical beasts and fantasy races. They aren't always what you would expect though! Who would have guessed we would have a minotaur salesman?
This fandom has a pretty massive gamer/fantasy/sci-fi geek following, and because of this, our knowledge of mystical fantasy beasties, paranormal creatures, and super advanced alien races is unmatched!
What do you want to see our little ponies encounter next?

Shame pulses through my heart,
from the things I've done to you.
It's hard to face, but the fact remains,
that this is nothing new.
I don't believe any of these songs contain Fluttershy, but that's alright, she can be a header if she wants to. Two instrumentals and a vocal track: orchestral/steampunk, something something Twilight books, and a vocal cover of one of the best instrumental songs in the show!
1) DasDeer - Dysfunctional
2) Twilight Sparkle's Mind Palace - 2/4
3) deadmare5 - Cutie Mark Crusaders Go Crusading With Vocals (Cover ft. Flutarity, 100 sub special!)
Flitter hasn't had a lot of love lately so let's fix that shall we?
Sorry for the delayed plush compilation guys! Between school and Con Crud last week I'm still playing catchup on a lot of my features. Time to hunker down and get to work again!

Many of you probably jumped on Borderlands 2 when it came out, and noticed a certain lack of pony references in it's internet humor filled dialogue. There were a few that "could" have been (the diamond pony for example), but nothing specific.
It looks like they were waiting for the DLC before really going nuts with it! Introducing the Mechromancer's skill tree, filled with pony talents.

It looks like not even your bathrooms are safe anymore. Twilight Sparkle has popped up with a new toothbrush holder. Outside of her eyes appearing to be a bit derped, she isn't bad looking in that molded form. Maybe you can loosen it off and set it up as a figure? This one was found by... "Twilight Sparkle" (No relation) at Shoppers in Laurel, MD for 6 bucks.
And in other news, the packaging for that Pinkie Pie we posted the other day has popped up on Taobao. That is below! Looks like it's official name is Walkin Talkin Pinkie Pie.
