Similar to the last round of molded figures, I've grabbed me a set of the new ones to go with my Rainbow and Derpy. Running with a completely new finish, how do these compare to the other two? Head on down past the break for my review on Funko's Fluttershy and Doctor Whooves!
So.. Ponies in masks. I wonder if this is a nod at a future episode or something? I honestly don't get it!
Big Bad Toy Store has tossed up pre-orders on Luna, the masked ponies, and fashion style ponies. Oddly they seem to be including them in full cases with the following:
Fashion Pony Series 2:
1x MLP CRYSTAL RAINBOW DASH
3x MLP CRYSTAL PRINCESS LUNA
Fashion Pony Series 4
2x Fashion Style Princess Twilight Sparkle
1x Fashion Style Princess Cadance
Fashion Pony Series 3 (Nothing Listed)
Crystal Pony Series 3 (Masquerade)
1x Masquerade Sunset Shimmer
1x Masquerade Rainbow Dash
1x Masquerade Pinkie Pie
1x Masquerade Rarity
Hopefully Toywiz or one of those other pre-order merchants pick up on singles, I don't think I'd ever need three Lunas, even if she is awesome.
[Sad][Adventure][Dark] "This is a story that engages the reader in its unique vision. What sets this story apart from similar works is the evocative use of subtlety and a fearlessness with its world-building, and all of this leading up to interesting original characters and a setting that is at once amazing and believable." -Prereader #13

Description: But who could realistically steal the diary of a princess?The Warm Diary of Twilight Sparkle (New Part Epilogue!)
Twilight froze as a fleeting thought seeded itself in her mind.
"Were wars fought over you...?" she whispered darkly.
When Twilight finds an unusual diary belonging to a pony only known as "Stella", she goes on a fantastic journey to save the souls of those written in its pages from a fate worse than death.
Cover Art created and altered by wonderfully talented artist dstears.

- Ranging from 8GB all the way to 128GB drives
- Comes pre-loaded with Icons, Avatars, Wallpapers, Screensavers, Previews of upcoming pony books, soundbites, and More
They also have a video explaining it all, find that below the break!
Wow, this game is making me feel completely inadequate as a gamer. I've never failed so hard before.
Futz01 from the swarm of both multi-player and single player games that have popped up over the last year has released a new one, where you jump from pixel to pixel as Sweetie Belle while running from the sides of the screen. Eventually things get absolutely insane with pixels swerving every which way. Needless to say, it takes some getting used to.
Find it here!

We Love Fine has announced the winner of their Twilight Sparkle Coronation event, via the following:

Well lookee what we've got here, friends, it's more news from Unicon. A bunch of sad ponies saddled with bills and no solution to draw on! But maybe they're not aware that there's really no need for such teary despair, that the key to end this con derp fiasco I am here to share~
See it's an opportunity with this here documentary! And... it's too early in the day for a musical. But good news, everyone! Mike Brockhoff, John de Lancie, and the Brony Documentary team heard about the Las Pegassist movement and have decided to chip in and do their part to help! They're currently selling a limited run of signed Blu-ray copies of the movie (as pictured above, 50 in all) on their website, with all of the proceeds going to help out the fandom members who got hurt in the financial collapse of Unicon. It's a good cause, and a good chance to snag a swanky copy of the documentary if you haven't already (or get a couple of particularly difficult to come by signatures, if you have). Check below this super convenient page break for the details from their official press release:

Twilight Sparkle cannot help but feel that something is missing, and only somepony she cannot see and cannot find knows the answer.
Both of them are about to learn a powerful secret of their worlds and the magic that surrounds them. Neither will like what they find.

For those of you collecting the vinyl Funco figures (Hopefully most of you, because these things rock), it looks like we can look forward to another duo in June. Which ponies do you guys want to see? I'm hoping for a bit of Luna/Trixie personally!

But without a full and accurate list of people who have incurred losses from this event, none of this matters. That's why we're asking again: if you or anybody you know incurred unexpected expenses from Las Pegasus Unicon (whether you were charged for a room that should have been comped, or charged extra after booking at the special convention rate), please fill out this relief form.
Everybody has done an excellent job making sure there's plenty of auctions and fundraisers to make everybody whole after this unfortunate weekend. Now let's help spread the word and make sure that nobody in need of some pegassistance slips through the cracks.
For more information and updates on Las Pegasus Unicon and the fallout from the convention collapse, please see our original post here, or refer to this website.
Update: For information on the rules regarding the closing of the charity auctions, see this post.
