• Nightly Roundup #678

    Time for some Daring Do tonight because I am feeling dangerous and unpredictable (Read: I have a headache I think is giving me brain damage). Anyhow, on to the Roundup which I have carefully typed up by rolling my aching head across it.

  • PMV: Lift Your Spirit

    Custom animation explosion!  This almost reminds me of one of those really stylistic car commercials they used to play a few years ago, but with ponies.  Anyway go watch it after the break.

  • Cadance and Shining Armor for Comics 11 and 12.

    Bobby Curnow, one of the editors working at IDW, tossed a little teaser up on their discussion boards about the 11th and 12th issues of the MLP comic main series:
    Expect a big dose of Cadence/Shining Armor in MLP #11 & 12!
    It sounds like we are either going to see a bunch of Crystal Empire focused stuff, or something about the two of them in particular.   

    Expect to see those later in the year! 

    Thanks to  Candygram for the heads up.

  • Andrea Libman's Ride to Conquer Cancer Charity Event

    Andrea Libman has hopped on Reddit and proposed an idea to the masses of pony fans for a bit of cancer curing charity.  As many of you probably already know if you follow her Twitter, or even past EQD posts,  she will be participating in the 2 day Ride to Conquer Cancer event this year.  So far, her team has raised over $17,000, but they could still use your help.

    Every donation of $50 or more (until June 14th) will result a personalized autograph saying thanks.  In addition to that, they will be hosting auctions over on Ebay

    Here are the team members that still haven't hit their donation quota:


    And as stated in her letter to Reddit, be sure to include your address in the note section of your donation.

    If you want it straight from the pony's mouth, head on over here!
  • Elements of Harmony Friends Set

    Another new set has popped up on the wild world of the internet from the Toy Faire a few months ago.  It looks like we will be seeing  the brand new Fluttershy model join a Manticore, Nightmare Moon, and Steven Magnet in the new "Elements of Harmony Friends" set.   Hopefully they are available in mass soon!

    Thanks to Marguerite for the heads up.

  • Story: Villaintine's Day


    Author: Swashbucklist
    Description: The four most powerful villains in Equestria gather for a weekly conference with the intent of discussing the validity and merits of their evil plans. But it's more likely they'll just sit around bickering and judging each other. Whatever the case, each one of them has more than a few things to say.

  • Comic Con Exclusive Pony for 2013 - Vinyl Scratch!

    USA Today has released an image of this year's Comic Con exclusive pony.  It looks like Vinyl Scratch will be dominating the floor.  She will clock in at 50 bucks, so be prepared to drop a bit of money to pick her up.  I can only imagine what that is going to do for the ebay sales. Have a quote from the article:
    A fan favorite who first appeared in the first season of Friendship is Magic, DJ Pon-3 ($49.99) makes her debut with a Comic-Con exclusive — and a shiny one at that. In addition to a musical note as her "cutie mark," her sunglasses and unicorn horn are embellished with Swarovski crystal elements that tie into the year's theme of the Crystal Empire.
    Even DJ Pon-3's special packaging lights up, says Hasbro's Donna Tobin, senior vice president, global brand marketing for My Little Pony. "Everything about her offering really enhances her character."
    In the cartoon, "she had a little throwback to the '80s — she put a needle on an actual vinyl record," Tobin adds. "A younger girl might not have picked that up but our older fans picked it up immediately and loved it. And we love that about her, too."
      Thanks to iStricer for the heads up!
