Hey again everyone! I'm back from vacation and back on Roundup duty as I settle in after my trip back from Michigan. Much merriment was had and as you can probably tell some game playing went on (love Dust!). Finally beat both Arkham games too! At this rate I'll be caught up with my backlog in about 5 years.
Anyhow, onward to the Roundup! Come on AJ!
Convention news everywhere tonight! Chrysalis can't contain the love for pony these conventions have planned. If only changelings in the show had access to the internet, they would never want for love again.
Anyhow, on to our list of convention news! Check it all out after the break.
- DerpyCon South Promo
- Midwest Brony Fest Wrap-Up
- Sac Brony Expo Promo
- EFNW Post-Con Wrap-Up
- BronyCon Mini-Print Project
We are going to have an entire movie scored with how much epic orchestral stuff this fandom produces! Lets start off with another in the Derpy and Carrot Top's epic journey series from Carbon Maestro, followed by a Saddle Arabian style track in the second slot. I seriously got a Playstation One era desert level vibe on that one. Both below the break!
1.) Blades of Inferno - Derpy and Carrot Top's Epic
2.) Knight-Saddle Arabia
Following their trend of bringing fandom artists in to create shops on the site, We Love Fine has gone one step further by transforming their art into fully fledged vinyl figurines. Right now they have just two available. You may recognize Derpy from Comic Con, and luckily for all of you that couldn't attend, she will be available at future conventions, most likely as part of combo deals with merchandise being sold on the floor.
Vinyl Scratch on the other hand is up on their website as part of the achievement system. You will need to purchase two other items, and then add it through the cart. More details here!
Hopefully they keep these things flowing out!
Quite a bit of music flowing into the EQD inbox lately, with surprisingly good outcomes on more than usual. We start this one off with an excellent Vocal Trance track, followed by some original sounding rock, or at least a type we don't hear much in the pony fandom. Both are below as always!
1.) PonyToast - Firecracker
2.) PonyFireStone- Flight (Feat. MEMJ)
Nature pony edition. Always was a Flutterfan. I think she was one of the reasons I stuck with the show early on. That first scene with her was too much!
We have a bunch of wallpapers this time around, way more than usual. Hopefully there aren't any doubles in there from last week. Sometimes it can be a bit difficult to coordinate when more than one of us work on a specific post set.
And as with all wallpaper posts here, Click the source for full size! I better not see anymore pony desktop threads with a bunch of people stretching 1190x680 wallpapers on their 1920x1080 monitors!
I wonder if we are going to get to hear the CMC Sing badly in Japanese today? So far the longer songs seem to just be english versions, though last week Fluttershy did drop some Japanese for Hush Now.
Anyway, you know the way this works by now. Below the break is the embed. Showing starts at 7:30 AM Japan Time, or 3:30 Pacific.
Get wings? Build a nest! It's the natural reaction to something like that, as shown by Twilight trying to sleep in a normal bed with wings. The best seen in Equestria Girls by far imo.
Onward to art!

Description: I've spent the majority of my life tilling the desolate land in which I live. Every day, I wake up to move useless rocks from one location to another. This is an archaic line of work that my family has clung to for generations. It is a dull, grey existence.What is a Name? (Update Part 10, Epilogue!)
Today, I have woken up in a strange room, lying in a bed that isn't mine. I'm surrounded by five mares whom I've never seen in my life. They claim to be my friends, and expect me to bring joy to the hearts of everypony.
Joy? I don't think I've ever experienced this for myself, so how am I supposed to thrust it upon others?
My name is Pinkamena Diane Pie, and I'm not sure what to make of this situation.

Comics! We have a bit of cute, a bit of lol, and some immortality to finish it. Click for full as always!
A few people have reported that Princess Twilight is already available at Build a Bear stores, along with Spike. There are a few pricing options here. If you want just the pony, you are looking at 25 bucks, with the costume is 53, and with Spike is 63. Spike on his own clocks in at 10 bucks.
Find them all over here! Thanks to everyone for the heads up! Tips are always welcome.
Update: And an image from the store from Scott!
I actually just started watching Fringe before Comic Con. It's not as addicting as most TV series I've lost a million hours to but it's pretty good.
Have a ponified intro for that to start us off, followed by another dubstep style PMV With Pinkie Pie, and some Satyrs for all 10 of you that didn't want to behead me for the Satyr discussion a few weeks ago. Get them below!
1.) Friendship is Fringe Science
2.) One to the Two Pmv
3.) Stompin' Satyr
Ponies and video games! Why does this blog always seem to relate the two? Maybe it's due to some sort of bias? Or maybe ponies really do love video games. Lets assume point number two is the case.
Take each of the mane 6 and decide what you think their favorite video game of all time would be. Maybe Twilight Sparkle enjoys a good MMORPG on the weekend? And I'm sure Rainbow Dash would probably be all for a bit of F-Zero.
Hit the comments up with your choices!
Those clear style pony prototypes from a while back now have packaging. It's looking like they are Toys R' Us exclusives, and part of that Pony Friends lineup. Right now only Taobao has it listed, so we can probably expect it in stores soon.
Thanks to Drewdaddy for the images.at 9:00 AM
Calpain is still working on that immortality elixer, so until then we will just have to get by with fan-art of future dash. I wonder if pony is going to be around long enough for the inevitable virtual reality world era? Can you imagine how unproductive people would be if they could play WoW in their head, with pony?
Anyway, have some nightly roundup while I commission a robot company to build me a clone so I can do just that!
