    Canterlot Target Displays Coming Down

    Specific Target stores around the USA Are taking down their Canterlot displays. As is the norm for retail stores, if no employee has claimed it, you can totally go pick up a 3D Celestia. Only specific managers are willing to give these out, and it is suggested that you don't badger them for it, but might as well give it a shot right?

    BroNYCon January 2012 Guests Announced / RSVP Open / Help Fund the Convention

    Have some copypasta from Purple Tinker!
    We are pleased to announce the first round of Guests of Honour and Special Appearances for the next BroNYCon, BroNYCon January 2012!

    Firstly, the beloved Composer of all our pony tunes, Daniel Ingram, will be giving a moderated Q&A via Skype on the big screen!

    Secondly, famous pony artist John Joseco will be in attendance!

    This is a unique opportunity to interact with both of these great individuals-- not to mention, to hang out with several hundred of your closest pony friends.

    So, what are you waiting for? Go to http://www.meetup.com/Bronies-NYC/events/24366841/ and RSVP today!

    In the spirit of friendship,

    Purple Tinker
    In other news, Purple Tinker was recently robbed and lost a pretty large chunk of change that was going toward the event Have some copy paste on how you can help fund BroNYCon.

    So, over the weekend, someone (who is not me-- and who did not have my authorisation) withdrew $800 from my bank account. My bank is "temporarily" giving me it back, but they are asking for an affidavit, and (depending upon what they request in said affidavit) may end up taking it back if I refuse to provide testimony that would incriminate the only suspect-- who happens to be one of my closest friends. I'm really in a bind.

    I happen to have a fresh shipment of high-quality plastic chickens: http://purpletinker.com/morechickens.jpg -- they are $25 each, plus $2 shipping (within the US) for up to 2 chickens. Supply is highly limited, though, so email me first.

    I also still have an unlimited quantity (I can always print more) of 11"x14" Trixie posters to sell: http://purpletinker.deviantart.com/art/The-Great-and-Powerful-Poster-263403229 -- they are $10 each, plus $3 shipping (Within the US) for up to 5 posters.

    I likewise have an unlimited quantity of 11"x14" BroNYCon posters in various designs: http://purpletinker.com/posterdesigns.jpg -- same cost as the Trixie posters. If your budget is smaller, I also have small 4"x6" art prints (extremely high-quality glossy inkjet prints) of all of the poster designs for $3 each.

    Oh, and I have a bunch of Galaxy Girls dolls (Mars, Venus, Jupiter and Milky Way) for $10 apiece plus actual shipping, and Galaxy Girls books for the same price.

    Anything you could do to help me out here would be greatly appreciated. I can be reached at [email protected] gmail.com.
