It's that time of the month once again! This one is probably going to be the most intense if our popular post section is any indication. It seems like every time I look over there I see 4-6 media posts sneak up.
Anyway, head on down past the break for the usual rules breakdown.
I'm sure a bunch of you have run into Snuggle Truck at some point in your cell phone/indie game days. It's pretty much everywhere. I think it even comes pre-loaded in some carrier's software and game packages.
It looks like they plan on embracing the pony! One of their staff members pitched a brony mode idea, and they rolled with it. Tomorrow at 1:00 PM ET Snuggle Truck will be the daily deal on Steam for $2.50, with the pony DLC included completely free. iOS users will also have access to it, though it is payed DLC over there.
On top of that, for every 200 iOS purchases or Steam gift sales, a tree will be planted in celebration of their upcoming Jack Lumber game. For Fluttershy of course.
The sale won't be active until tomorrow, so keep an eye on it's page if you plan on grabbing it on steam, or jump on your iPad/iPhone and dig it up in the market. It's time to plant some trees and play with ponies!
Looks like Tee shirts and blindbags are the dominant force in the pony world. That may be due to the amount of them we have. Hopefully those future collector sets keep expanding on the molded ponies!
Onward to the next poll! This one is a bit complicated. We have a ton of characters in FiM if those Comic Con promo posters are any indication. A good amount of the one-shots or "every once in a while" characters enter and leave before we really get to know anything about them. Discord for example seems to be an ancient equestrian evil, while Zecora is a complete enigma.
I'm not including fan named characters, but if I missed a canon character that you think needs some explainin', feel free to pick other.
We start this post off today with another really neat PMV filled with all sorts of custom effects, and because this poor Spikezilla trailer has been sitting in queue for a while, have it as a bonus!
1.) Boooring! [PMV]
2.) SPIKEZILLA (re-edit version)
I guess if you are going to ponify everything, you need to ponify everything. We now have disposable wash gloves. Now at first, I was a bit confused at this. We don't really have these here in the states. A quick message to one of my European friends on steam though confirmed that these are in fact a thing over there.
This one in particular was found at a store called Poundland for £1. It looks like you get five of them, so not a bad deal!
Thanks to Megan for the image.
A swarm of changelings are attacking Canterot, and it's up to you to defend it!
This game has a surprising amount of depth. Each character has a different weapon style, from Pinkie Pie's exploding party projectiles to Rainbow Dash's rainbow beams, and between each wave you can upgrade everything from Canterlot's shield strength to their specific ultimate abilities.
Head on over here to give it a shot!

Jedi's and Tron? Why hasn't this happened before?

Good news for all you Californians or people willing to travel and hang out with Californians. Beach Ball Comics in Anaheim will be celebrating the November 14th launch of the first issue of the MLP Comic with a giant party!
Both Katie Cook and Andy Price (the artists working on the comic) are being flown in for the event. This is probably your only shot at getting them both to sign one, as they live in completely different states.
So get your meetup groups involved, set up some car pooling, and make this event a huge success! The MLP comic wouldn't exist without us, and it's already confusing the hell out of comic stores everywhere. Lets make sure it releases with a bang and show them that we are interested in seeing more!
Hit up the Beach Ball Comics facebook page for updates as November approaches.
Greetings from Canterlot Gardens my friends! Calpain here has finally stolen a laptop with internet access and has hunkered down to give you guys a bit of news.
Talking with some of the people here at the con we have word that pony writer Charlotte Fullerton has arrived on the Twitter scene. Writing such episodes as Look Before you Sleep and the wonderful Suited for Success! So log on and give Charlotte a big warm welcome to Twitter and thank her for the work she has done.
Also entering the Twitter scene is Steph Mahoney, an animator and layout artist on the show. We wouldn't have such great animation without people like her so send her our best wishes too at the links below.

What started as 4 hours of silly game making seems to have evolved into something that actually might turn out really awesome! Fluttershy Sparkle on Youtube has released three more videos showing off the progress he has made so far. Included this time is a whole bunch of Rarity and Applejack, Octavia's final smash, and a demonstration of a couple of levels, namely Hyrule castle.
Head on down past the break for all three videos!
Anyway, EQLA has signed him up for their convention in November. Head on down past the break for all the neat little tidbits of information straight from their con heads!
Actually, the Scout and Pinkie Pie make a pretty for pair. I always figured Rainbow Dash would make more sense, but this video has converted me! Touche' creator!
And we also have the cast of TF2 in a Smile Smile Smile parody. It's completely ridiculous, but you expect that from SFM posts right?
Find them below.
Or should I say style PMV? Cause that's what this PMV has... style. It's filled with custom animations and not obnoxious at all. Can't get better than that right? Find it below.
UPDATE: This kind of got buried by 3 other posts all in the same 10 minute span earlier, and it's awesome, and you guys keep sending it, so I'm bumping it for the over night slot for ALL TO SEE.
Like you guys didn't expect to see this drawfriend image pop up somewhere! Hah! It's Trixie night.
And in celebration, have the Trixie AKA Boast Busters panel from earlier!
Onward to an extremely short roundup!
I remember back in the day when Duct Tape was used for actually taping things! I'm perfectly fine with it's new job as an artistic medium though!
Head on down past the break to watch Rainbow Dash come to life via duct tape!
This is probably one of the oddest PMV posts we have had in a while! Based on the title, you can probably guess why that one falls into this category though if you have ever seen the original.
Anyway, have a bit of Southpark, happy Pinkie Pie, and rum.
1.) [PMV] South Park Intro
2.) Pinkie Feels Fantastic
3.) [PMV] My Little Pony: Why's the rum gone!? - Pirates of the Caribbean
Well. Apparently this was a thing. You can find a video of her revealing herself to the crowd here. Her official tweet is here, and the other shot was by a fan. Pretty sure she's got a lightbulb on her hornpiece in that second one.
Double the animations, double the fun! Or something like that. If that happens to be a trademark by some large company, I take money by Paypal. I've got two animations here for you guys today:
Pega - Custom 3D animation abound! This one's about a pegasus who totally cuts a wave in half. It's as awesome as it sounds.
My Little Senior - Bonus! This one was inspired by the FiM voice actresses.
Find them both after the break!

Is Applejack your favorite pony of all time? Do you dream of working long hours on Sweet Apple Acres and taking a break in an apple filled farm house with the apple family while eating various apple products and showering with their apple scented cleaning products? You might want to head on over to Big Lots then and pick up a set of apple scented bath products! That's a lot of soap for just five bucks!
The submitter, Regan, also pointed out that they had a 10 dollar "mane care" set complete with hairclips and a comb.
I bet conventions would be way cooler if these were passed out for free with tickets!
You guys just love that writing thing. So much so that Noble Cause needed a bit of time to get it all compiled! It looks like quite a few people hit the 50k mark this year. That's straight up impressive guys! I get tired after just a paragraph.
And because of that, I'll let Noble take over from here. Head on down past the break for a list of entries and his closing speech!

Whatshisgame reports to us that a DVD containing the episode Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000 will be packaged with next year's brushable toy packages, one of which was the Crystal Empire Fluttershy we saw earlier this month. The email blurb explains it thusly:
A DVD of The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000 will be coming in four brushable toy packages (one of which is that Crystal Empire Fluttershy we saw at the beginning of this month). The assortment has been listed for pre-order online by Midtown Comics, Comics Infinity, Westfield Comics, Things From Another World, Movie Replicas Direct, and Urban Collector, generally with a release date of January 30, 2013 or a bit later. But the retail price is $83.88, and the lowest any of those sites are selling for right now is $67.10—either it’s for whole cases full, or the Flim Flam brothers themselves are behind this!
[Adventure] [Shipping] "If you liked Within and Without, give this story your immediate attention. Cloudy Skies is deceptively adept at writing adventure fics as he is with his normal subject matter, and I think even new readers of his will enjoy his latest offering. The ways he portrays our favorite pastel ponies are as convincing as they are enjoyable, and I invite you to get lost in his world to see what you find." -- Pre-reader \--,

Description: Applejack had long since taken the Hearth’s Warming Eve story for fact. When she and Fluttershy find themselves in an untamed wilderness, they’ll learn that not all history is preserved. In their struggle to find their way home, the two will unearth secrets unknown to any living being, pony or otherwise.Lost and Found (New Part 31+31+Epilogue!)
Half a world away, the others have problems of their own. As Rainbow Dash struggles to discover exactly what she is to her oldest friend, Twilight must face the stunning truth about her long-time mentor.
In the end, what is lost, and what is found?

Season 3? Pff! We have so much fan animation on the way we might as well just run our own series at this point! Silly Filly Studios has released a trailer for their upcoming "snowdrop" with the following synopsis:
Wonderfully written by Meredith Sims (https://www.youtube.com/user/Emichwan88), Snowdrop is a heartwarming tale that takes you back in time to after Discord's reign, when Equestria was still young. It follows a young filly who makes a discovery that offers Cloudsdale--and Equestria--a gift, one that today many take for granted.Yeah, I can't wait. Check the trailer out after the break.
There's been a large number of people coming into the door at Canterlot Gardens trying to get into the convention as walk ins. Unfortunately, the convention is sold out.
This applies to both Saturday and Sunday passes. If you've been considering attending, you will unfortunately have to wait another year. Please take this under advisement. Go see a movie. Eat lunch somewhere nice. Just hang out with friends and try to get a head start on salvaging the day/weekend. And remember, the only way to guarantee yourself a place in any convention is to pre-register.
This has been a public service announcement from your friends at Equestria Daily. EqD: The only place for pony news where all the staff are obsessed with whales. I'm tired. Peace out.

I'm sure you are all curious about what exactly Andrew W.K.'s goals were at a pony convention. He may love Pinkie Pie almost too much, but is he actually into this whole Friendship is Magic thing? Head on over to their page to check out what they thought about it, and for a few quotes from the professional partier himself!
And after the break, you can find a recording of the full panel for those of you that missed the livestream.
I'd make Luna the official mascot of Instrumental posts, but she isn't included in this one for whatever reason! Have some music.
1.) My Cadence (Orchestral Arrangement)
2.) Element7 - CRUSH. KILL. DESTROY. HUG. | Sweetie Bot Tribute Song (Samples / Electronic)
3.) Abandoned (By TheDashDub) (Soft Electronic/Strings)
Welovefine has released a bunch of new designs over in their pony section. These guys seem to be dropping them at an almost weekly rate now days. Keep growing pony fandom!
And in other news, it looks like they have run out of blindbags for their free pony promo. I'm sure we will see them replaced by something soon though!
Anyway, check out the rest of the designs after the break.
What do we do when Sweetie Belle's voice actor releases lets plays of her shenanigans in Minecraft? We animate it of course! It's super simple, but also completely ridiculous. Check it out below!
Roundup time! It's not the longest ever, but it does have cake. You like cake right?
And thanks to the guys from Dusk's Dawn for the new EQD header! I guess you guys were sick of Jet Set Radio!
here, the video after the break, and the synopsis below.
"Equestria Inquirer welcomes TechRat, Evil Techrat, Reluctantly Evil Techrat, and Just Here for the Cake Techrat as hosts for this weeks' Equestria Inquirer! Join us as he mocks Joe's attempts to have a panel at Midwestria, mocks his own mustache, and laughs maniacally as he tortures Lttmoose. We also have Fluttershy reviewing something savory and a new freelancer for you to enjoy."
The traveling pony museum team has a bit of an update for you all after their Bronycon -> EFNW -> Trotcon run. Included in the update is a bit of an update on their CG absense, as well as future plans. Head on down past the break to check it out!
Something is...off here. I can't quite put my finger on it. I think it has something to do with the shape of the head, but I can't be sure!
These were found in Turku, Finland. Apparently a store sold out of their legitimate pony stock and replaced it all with these. I feel bad for all the kids who will be receiving one for the upcoming holidays with parents grabbing the nearest pony while out shopping for presents!
Thanks to Imperial Print for the image!
