Description: Rainbow Dash finally did it! A sonic rainboom on command! Except she also managed to break every window in Applejack's farmhouse in the process. Now she has to pay for each one, and with her wages from managing the weather not nearly enough to cover the damage, she has to work on Applejack's farm for two whole weeks!At Home On The Range (Alternate Ending Part 15!)
Talk about cruel and unusual punishment. Still, maybe it wouldn't be all bad. At least she would get to hang out with her friend AJ right? Wrong.

My Little Gravity Falls
Another neat little game project is in progress, going by the name of Nightfall. It is essentially a defense style game where you have the days to build up your fortress, and nights to defend against swarms of changelings. Included in the mix is the usual fair, via power ups and towers. So far it sounds like an interesting concept! The game is currently in alpha, but you can find a trailer below the break showing off what has been completed so far.

Back when I used to play the Gameloft pony game I often wondered the same thing posed in the first comic. Seems like Nightmare Moon has lost a little bit of her powers in the Gameloft universe.

When FiM first came out, there wasn't a huge variety of pony shapes to choose from. You had either the mane 6 with their swarms of incidental ponyville ponies, and the princesses. Over the seasons, many new shapes and sizes have popped up to avoid the copy pastey style of the primary model.
The question is, which pony shape is your favorite? Do you have a specific incidental character that you love to see? Or maybe Luna's short yet lanky build is appealing?
And another question entirely based on an old comment Lauren made years ago; would you like to see each of the mane six have slightly different models? The original plan was for all of them to be unique, but time constraints and the difficulty of animating six mane characters made it more economical to share body types between all of them. What would each pony differentiate themselves with?
The design-a-pony Luna toy appears to be making it's way on to Taobao. Based on how that usually works, we can probably expect to see it popping up in stores in the near future. If you can't bring yourself to wait though, you can find her here! There is a good chance that this is the figure alone, or a knockoff, so buy at your own risk.
Thanks to Thezo for the heads up!
(Update: Apparently this thing is available everywhere now! Find it at Toywiz, and some Wal-Mart locations)
