Woah, where did this come from? Hopefully you late-night crew, European/Australian/Asian/Non US timezone folks are around, because this is a full on 4 and a half minute long Daring Do animation that is amazingly well done. They even threw some 3D effects in there. I for one welcome our new AlStiff animation overlord.
Head on down below the break to check it out!
Both Doctor Whooves Adventures and The Vinyl Scratch Tapes released new episodes today! Open those ears of yours, and go listen to stuff!
I'm kind of curious on how many of you are Doctor Who fans at that. Might be time for a poll or something.
1.) Doctor Whooves Adventures:(Goodnight ep3) Good Show Goodnight Prt1
2.) The Vinyl Scratch Tapes Season 2 - Episode 1: Back in the Saddle
The first 3 seconds of opening that second one made me think I was being Rickrolled. Luckily it's far from that. We start off with an awesome B.B.B.F.F. remix from Stormwolf, and finish with a 90's style Spitfire dedicated song from Psychgoth. It's kind of refreshing to escape the "Win the Crown" remixes for a bit. Check both out below!
1.) BBBFF - StormWolf Remix
2.) PsychGoth - Spirit of Fire (ft. Nowacking & Mysterious Bronie)
You know what the biggest challenge for every cartoon villain is? Pulling off that smug ass sinister/planning/evil face. Know who does it best? Trixie. You might be thinking "but what about Chrysalis! Her villain face rocks!". Unfortunately, she cheats. Fangs are the biggest crutch in the evil mastermind world. It's almost like using an aimbot in a FPS. You aren't actually good, you are just being carried by something that makes you look good. Trixie doesn't have fangs, and she doesn't use an aimbot in TF2. Would you be friends with someone who aimbots? I would hope not. They ruin games.
Have some art!
A new spell for real magic
There isn't a whole lot of new here outside of a teaser clip to the bonus features that have been floating around on Youtube for a while, but I figured I'd make a mention of it anyway. Entertainment Weekly has tossed an article up about the upcoming Equestria Girls blu-ray. Head on over here to check it out!
Thanks to everyone that sent it in, and Masem for reminding me to post it! Derp.
The Hub has uploaded a short little promo for their election event going on right now at Hubworld, this one dedicated to Pinkie Pie and her crazy shenanigans. It has a few neat lines near the end that are custom to the commercial. Head on down below to check it out!
Remember that amazing Flutterwonder SFM Video? The creator of that one, Ferexes, has released a second one dedicated to Applejack and the old Pinkie Pie Swear song "Sunshine and Celery Stalks". Expect awesome animation and atmostpheric effects, along with the usual PPS lyrical Gibberish that rocked the fandom back in the day.
I'll stop blabbering though, because you need to go be amazed for four minutes. Get it below the break!
The Artist Spotlight continues to impress as I now have about 120 emails with suggestions for me to go through, but that doesn't mean stop folks, keep sending them in! Tonight we've got some more artists you might never have heard of, but do some incredibly impressive work. Check after the break for all our spotlit artists!
In similar style to the Tumblr Spotlights, a group of 3-4 artists will be spotlit each entry along with a small short description along with a small selection of their artwork! In order to make this feature work though we need people to suggest artists to us so make sure to send artists you think need some exposure to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also include a short biography I can work with as well as what medium you work in most.
What sort of artists count? Suggestions should follow these criteria:
- No clop or extensive gore galleries as those typically violate our content guidelines. If the artist has a safe for work gallery separate from their not safe for work stuff they or their fans can submit the safe for work gallery. If there is a mix of SFW/NSFW on a gallery the decision whether or not to include them will be judged on a gallery to gallery basis.
- Those with below 500 faves on their most popular pony picture on dA or similar gallery (Furaffinity, ect) will take priority consideration in posts, but those who have above this number are still welcome to submit or have their fans submit.
- Don't be afraid to spotlight yourself as well as others!
- Artists of all types accepted -vector, OC, traditional, digital. As long as it is pony and of quality it has a chance of being spotlit.
Coming in right after those two earlier, we have five more toys from various ebay auctions out of Hong Kong. That Chrysalis especially has my interest. Unlike the Thunderlane and Smarty Pants from earlier, All of these are in expected sets coming up, and I think a few were even at the last Toy Faire. Hasbro needs to start sending more of these to Target so I can actually get some. I still can't find the Manticore one to save my life.
Anyway, have some links:
And Rarity was found on Taobao.
Thanks to Kirara for the heads up again!
The world of blindbag style toys appears to be expanding once again! Either that or some factory workers in China got a hold of a machine and copy of a 3D Design program to sell stuff on Taobao/Ebay. We have a Thunderlane and Smarty Pants popping up here. There isn't any confirmation if these are actually real yet, but considering the past track record of turning background/side characters into collectables, I wouldn't doubt it.
Thanks to Kirara for the heads up!
(Update: Smarty Pants was at the Toy Faire)
"You know you want me~"

Lots of second parts to comics today it seems! It's nice to get something other than one shot pieces from time to time don't you agree? The one linked above goes to the start of chapter 2 which came out some time ago, but has quite a few pages added since then so make sure to find the rest in the description.
