• Music of the Day #8


    Serving up fresh wubs on toasted flat bread, we're bringing you the tastiest jams this side of a jar of jelly. Which jar? I have no idea, but why are you looking at me like that? Just roll with it, gosh. Slave drivers.

    Also don't forget our massively overpriced combo meals giving you bonus bags of chiptunes you won't eat (currently out of stock, sorry) and those horrible pizza things that seriously why would you come here for that when you could have the thing that's in our name? Get with the program, dudes.

    Er... that is... I mean to say... Music of the Day! Beat Fresh!

  • Extra Life and Fighting Game Bronies Charity Livestream Marathon

     
    Fighting Game Bronies is teaming up with Extra Life for a 24 hour charity marathon starting tonight at midnight.    They released a youtube video (below the break) to explain the specifics, but if you just want to charge in blind and support the charity, hit up this link to watch and this link to donate!


  • Random Merch: Pins, Pretty Mane Set, Candy, and More!


    Time for some random merch! We start this one off with a couple of new buttons available at Hot Topic.  They even tossed some muffins in there!  Thanks to Nathan for the heads up on these.   Find them here.

    Head on down below the break for a while bunch of stuff!


  • Updates on the Littlest Pet Shop Post

    It looks like we missed a few people from the list of MLP Staff who will be working on the Littlest Pet Shop

    Steffan Andrews is also on the team working underscore for the songs, with M.A. Larson hopping in as a writer.   I haven't heard any of the FiM artists speak up yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if a few of them were absorbed in too.

    Now we just need Meghan to sneak in there and plant some insanity into the characters, with Jayson and Wootie's crazyness to back it up!
  • Larry's and Jetpack Comic Variant


    A couple of you sent this one in.  Apparently this will be the Larrys Comics variant of the cover, which will be part of a collab with Jetpack comics (The rough of which can be found below).

    Snowboard Dash or this Superhero Dash, I honestly can't decide at this point.  They are both awesome. 

    I've added it to the compilation post!


  • List of Variant Covers with Pictures, Preorder Links, and More!



    The Friendship is Magic comic comic is turning heads all over the place in the comic industry.  Tons of retailers have hopped on the bandwagon with their own exclusives, and the comic itself already has quite a few variants.  Needless to say, there are a ton of them.

    Overall we are looking at 19 covers for the first releasing in November. Someone going by the name of Kerzyte over on the official MLP comic forum has compiled up a neat list for the Friendship is Magic comic.

    Below the break,  you will find his list, along with images of each of the ones I was able to dig up out of the EQD archives and various forum posts throughout the internet.  A good amount aren't listing pre-order links right now, and may be just in-store pickups.

    Anyway, go check it out! 

  • Littlest Pet Shop - Filled with Pony Staff


    I'm sure a bunch of you who subscribe to The Hub on Youtube ran into the Littlest Pet Shop teasers a few days ago.

    One of the big standout things about this series is the insane amount of Friendship is Magic talent that they have brought on to the project.   Hell, Ashleigh Ball herself sings the intro theme.  

    In fact, have a list:
    • Ashleigh Ball – Blythe / Applejack & Rainbow Dash 
    • Tabitha St. Germain – Pepper Clark (skunk) / Rarity 
    • Nicole Oliver – Zoe Trent (dog) / Princess Celestia & Ms. Cherilee
    • Peter New – Sunil Nevla (mongoose) / Big Macintosh
    • Kathleen Barr – Mrs. Twombly (Littlest Pet Shop owner) / Trixie & Queen Chrysalis
    And to top it off, Daniel Ingram and Steffan Andrews are running the music scene. 

    (Update) M.A. Larson is also included for writing! 

    It looks like the scheduled the first episode right after our Friendship is Magic premiere.  With talent like that, it might be worth checking out!

    Head on down past the break for the first of the promos.   

  • Happy Birthday Calpain!


    On behalf of everyone at Equestria Daily and, well, the internet, I'd like to wish a happy birthday to our resident science pony, Calpain! In honor of this momentous day, I will fill the space after the break with his favorite pony. I urge you all to contribute in the comments!


  • Drawfriend Stuff #600



    600 Drawfriends?! I didn't even realize it until I labeled this thing! You guys are nuts!  If we average them out to about 25 each, that's 15000 images posted to EQD so far, and that is going easy on the estimation! No wonder my drawfriend folder is breaking 9 gb. 

    Anyway, I'll quit blabberin'.  Have a bunch of art!

  • 3D Stuff - MLP: Nightmare / Spinny 3D Octavia

    And in the second slot, some 3D spinny Assassins Creed Octavia.  We haven't had any 3D spinny ponies in a while have we?  Check that out here!

    You've all heard of the Brony Documentary which is set to launch at EQLA in November but we at the Brony Show have an exciting interview with Laurent, the Head of the Documentary on the way.

  • Season 3 Counter Added!


    Futzi01 on Deviant Art released a really neat season 3 counter, and I have embedded it at the bottom for all of you to rage at when the NUMBERS JUST WON'T GO DOWN. 

    For now it should be tiny in size and not cause any slowdown, but if we have any issues with it we might have to axe it. 

    Anyway, you can find that at the bottom!
  • Pony Coloring Table


    You guys know you need this. They just keep sending coloring books our way, so a set of jumbo crayons and a table was inevitable. 

    But just in case you aren't into that coloring thing, have some hair extensions instead!   They really do think of everything! 

    Thanks to SteC for the images.

  • Nightly Roundup #472


    Well, it's the start of another trip around the great celestial sphere for me as I mark another year down on the calendar. A big thanks to you all that have already wished me a Happy Birthday, it has really helped me get out of a horribly depressing slump (which you know is bad when you actually consider quitting pony) that has plagued me all week.

    News coming at you! I was sort of hoping for some cake tonight, but there is none in our inbox. Oh well, check out what we do have after the break.
