• Nightly Roundup #690


    How about some more game related art since it keeps popping up in my dA box? Okami was one of my favorite PS2 games even though I unfortunately never got around to beating it. I've got to get a copy again someday and make that happen. Games are also relevant tonight because we have some game projects looking for help tonight so if you want to see some more pony games in the future please make sure to check out our Groups Looking for More section!

    On to the news guys!

  • YTPMV: Get These Ponies Out of Metropolis Zone / Tom's Pony / Discord Tombstone


    Simple YTPMV? Just normal YTPMV? I'm not sure what to call these. I don't know what to call a lot of things here on EQD though! I do miss the days when these had more effects.

    Onward to YTPMV's!

    1.) YTPMV Get These Ponies Out of The Metropolis Zone (2000 sub special)

    This just had to come out the day Seth posted a discussion about ponies suddenly being Transformers. Plus it fits in nicely with the video game header I had for last night's Roundup so win win! Click the picture to check out the awesome animated title screen.
  • Comic: Bloom / Royal Training / Thunderapples


    Sometimes a comic doesn't need a single word of dialogue to get a message across which really shows the power of the medium. Plus you can't get more slice of life than AJ and her family for sure.

    Comic time! Click for full.


  • Random Merch: Japanese Toy Show Stuff, Hot Topic, Cake, and More!


    Japan had a toy show a few days ago, with ponies running around pretty much everywhere.  Not all of it was new, though there were a few tiny things like the keychains above.  Their packaging is also a bit different on the movable toys with the button butt symbols. 

    Sakura Cheetah sent over the image above, along with this video showing off the entire thing

    And if Japan isn't your style, hit up the break for piles of random merch!

  • Discussion: Ponies are Now Transformers


    We have seen the commercials of ponies teaming up with the Transformers over on the Hub for a few years now. Their big two beginning shows were definitely the focus early on. So imagine if you will, a crossover series where all the ponies are now transformers.

    What would each of them transform into during travel?  I'm going to use the image above as an example of their normal robot form (and because Trixie is best bot, sorry Sweetie Bot), but they need a vehicle or, if Beast Wars is taken into account, an animal to swap into when  quick movement is required.

    You can run with the mane six, or any pony you wish.  If Derpy converts into a giant rolling muffin, then so be it.
