You guys seem to want a return of the Princess of the Night, so why not have an epic picture of her for this evening?
Time for the news guys! Check it all out after the break.
Similar to the last round of molded figures, I've grabbed me a set of the new ones to go with my Rainbow and Derpy. Running with a completely new finish, how do these compare to the other two? Head on down past the break for my review on Funko's Fluttershy and Doctor Whooves!
So.. Ponies in masks. I wonder if this is a nod at a future episode or something? I honestly don't get it!
Big Bad Toy Store has tossed up pre-orders on Luna, the masked ponies, and fashion style ponies. Oddly they seem to be including them in full cases with the following:
Fashion Pony Series 2:
1x MLP CRYSTAL RAINBOW DASH
3x MLP CRYSTAL PRINCESS LUNA
Fashion Pony Series 4
2x Fashion Style Princess Twilight Sparkle
1x Fashion Style Princess Cadance
Fashion Pony Series 3 (Nothing Listed)
Crystal Pony Series 3 (Masquerade)
1x Masquerade Sunset Shimmer
1x Masquerade Rainbow Dash
1x Masquerade Pinkie Pie
1x Masquerade Rarity
Hopefully Toywiz or one of those other pre-order merchants pick up on singles, I don't think I'd ever need three Lunas, even if she is awesome.
[Sad][Adventure][Dark] "This is a story that engages the reader in its unique vision. What sets this story apart from similar works is the evocative use of subtlety and a fearlessness with its world-building, and all of this leading up to interesting original characters and a setting that is at once amazing and believable." -Prereader #13

Description: But who could realistically steal the diary of a princess?The Warm Diary of Twilight Sparkle (New Part Epilogue!)
Twilight froze as a fleeting thought seeded itself in her mind.
"Were wars fought over you...?" she whispered darkly.
When Twilight finds an unusual diary belonging to a pony only known as "Stella", she goes on a fantastic journey to save the souls of those written in its pages from a fate worse than death.
Cover Art created and altered by wonderfully talented artist dstears.

Wow, this game is making me feel completely inadequate as a gamer. I've never failed so hard before.
Futz01 from the swarm of both multi-player and single player games that have popped up over the last year has released a new one, where you jump from pixel to pixel as Sweetie Belle while running from the sides of the screen. Eventually things get absolutely insane with pixels swerving every which way. Needless to say, it takes some getting used to.
Find it here!

We Love Fine has announced the winner of their Twilight Sparkle Coronation event, via the following:
You guys did an outstanding job sharing, tweeting, and spreading the word on our Twilight Sparkle Coronation collection. You helped us get more than halfway to 10K, so we're still going to give away a ponyriffic prize: We're going to do half of the collection, winners' choice of your 7 favorite tees in the group! (Excluding the LED designs.)And continuing with this, they are running a 20% off flash sale on all of them, ending at 4:00 PM today. Head on over to this page to check those out!
And in other news, some 8bit shirts have popped up in their gallery. Have three of those, with more after the break!
Well lookee what we've got here, friends, it's more news from Unicon. A bunch of sad ponies saddled with bills and no solution to draw on! But maybe they're not aware that there's really no need for such teary despair, that the key to end this con derp fiasco I am here to share~
See it's an opportunity with this here documentary! And... it's too early in the day for a musical. But good news, everyone! Mike Brockhoff, John de Lancie, and the Brony Documentary team heard about the Las Pegassist movement and have decided to chip in and do their part to help! They're currently selling a limited run of signed Blu-ray copies of the movie (as pictured above, 50 in all) on their website, with all of the proceeds going to help out the fandom members who got hurt in the financial collapse of Unicon. It's a good cause, and a good chance to snag a swanky copy of the documentary if you haven't already (or get a couple of particularly difficult to come by signatures, if you have). Check below this super convenient page break for the details from their official press release:
For those of you collecting the vinyl Funco figures (Hopefully most of you, because these things rock), it looks like we can look forward to another duo in June. Which ponies do you guys want to see? I'm hoping for a bit of Luna/Trixie personally!
Ace Detective Derpy Hooves scours the scene for clues. Help her!
But without a full and accurate list of people who have incurred losses from this event, none of this matters. That's why we're asking again: if you or anybody you know incurred unexpected expenses from Las Pegasus Unicon (whether you were charged for a room that should have been comped, or charged extra after booking at the special convention rate), please fill out this relief form.
Everybody has done an excellent job making sure there's plenty of auctions and fundraisers to make everybody whole after this unfortunate weekend. Now let's help spread the word and make sure that nobody in need of some pegassistance slips through the cracks.
For more information and updates on Las Pegasus Unicon and the fallout from the convention collapse, please see our original post here, or refer to this website.
Update: For information on the rules regarding the closing of the charity auctions, see this post.
Checking over the votes there sure was a lot of Applejack love! So how about giving her the royal treatment tonight with some help from the CMC. This is your night tonight, AJ! Rest for once and enjoy.
Not a lot of news tonight guys so this will be short and sweet! Suggest tomorrow night's header down in the comments!
Larrys Comics has sent out a mass email to subscribers revealing the 6th exclusive shared comic between them and Jetpack. This one in particular is just a rough copy that will be expanded upon soon, but it gives you a good idea on what to expect.
You can find all of their comics here!
Thanks to Daniel for the heads up!
Update: Another comic cover, this one rolling with the Microseries for Rainbow Dash. Found here by Curtis and Emerald Flame
We have a bit of editing/typography, followed by some lip synching, and finish with one of those giant 8 minute long "never stay tuned" style PMV's. Find them all below.
1.) [PMV] "Rise and Fall"
2.) [PMV] Like A Real Boy - Runaway
3.) Pony Quickie: The Third
I absolutely love these pony themed machines! They're just wonderful in both action and design and speak volumes to the creativity of our little fandom.
Check after the break for some more creative crafts from artists throughout the fandom! You won't be disappointed!
Applejack's Apple Harvest
They may look like simple notecards with sharpie text, but these were the official ones used when building our pony episodes. Included in these three auctions are the following:
Set 1: Applebuck Season and Fall Weather Friends
Set 2: Bridle Gossip and Dog and Pony Show
Set 3: A Friend in Deed, The Cutie Pox, MMMystery on the Friendship Express
Pretty cool right? It's amazing what the people working on the show have sent over for us to drool over. Hopefully we fill the gap that unicon left pretty soon with all this crazyness!
Unicon news will continue to be added over on Phoe's Regugee and Donator information page.
I thought Scootaloo was supposed to be an orphan cripple? What is she doing at the Wonderbolts Academy?
Have some art while we did up her medical records. Something is fishy around here...
A polish website going by the name of Empik.com has listings for both the upcoming molded Princess Luna toy and one of those crazy masked ponies we saw at the Toy Faire this year. Luna in particular is of interest. Hopefully we can get a version of that without the crazy tattoos! Molded Luna must happen!
Thanks to Whatshisgame for the heads up!
Update: Pinkie with a hat too, courtesy of Sara from MLP arena.
I looked for a Rarity wallpaper. I looked far and wide. I came up short. In my desperation, I opened the last fresh-scented email in the wallpaper box and found a Cloudchaser.
Kidding, I love Cloudchaser.

We Love Fine has released a whole bunch of shirts to celebrate St. Patricks Day, five of which are pony shirts. They even threw some Lyra/Bonbon in there for good measure.

In other news, it looks like a good majority of people on Twitter have come across an issue of their orders from the Hot Topic website getting stuck in Tennessee. I too am stuck in the same boat:
Hopefully it's only temporary!
Update: Mine came in! The tracking lies!
According to a comment on the Shout Factory Facebook page, the second season of MLP FiM is heading our way via another disc set similar to the one that was released last year.
How soon is soon? I guess we will find out... soon?
Thanks to Basil FSM for the heads up.
Right now the entire set of series one cards is available, along with autograph cards to go with them. It looks like bids are sitting around 400. 100% of proceeds will go straight to assisting people who were harmed by what happened at Unicon
Head on over here to check it out!
So, for whatever reason some of these songs didn't show up when I was in the hotel, which means we have a few from a week ago in here! I guess that's why the last post only had nine?
Anyway, have some music. We have 19 in this one.
Some late convention news that just missed the convention post below - Bronycon has announced the opening of their vendor tables. Head on down below the break for information on how you can sign up for one.
