The Blu-Ray version of Equestria has a few bonus features as announced yesterday. Shout Factory expanded on these with a bit of information on the audio commentary. We have a list of people that will be tossing their two cents into it while you watch:
- Meghan McCarthy (Writer)
- Jayson Thiessen (Supervising Director)
- Ishi Rudell (Co-Director)
- Michael Vogel (VP of Development, Hasbro)
- Brian Lenard (Exec. Director, Hasbro)
So pretty much all those crazy peole on Twitter we've been bugging for months! You can find it over here if you want it!
Thanks to Anthony for the heads up!

Description: Our six heroes decide to settle down for the night with a few bottles of their choice beverage and a few hands of poker. The night was going so well until Rarity decided to wager her virginity. Now she's desperate to get it back.

A couple of PEZ focused websites have received a presser noting that we will be seeing a pony lineup in early 2015. We don't have any images of the products yet, but I'm sure those will follow soon. If you have no idea what PEZ is, expect a candy dispenser with a collectable figurine on top (the image above is the stars wars version).
Thanks to Peppermint Patty for the heads up!
I hear Luna trains crabs for battle and hosts giant gambling pits at night where ponies around the world compete for most powerful crab. She always wins. A lot of ponies think she is cheating because of this. With her lunar powers and tide raising abilities, there are conspiracies everywhere saying that she keeps the tide raised when she knows her competition is training, so that their practice fields are under water.
And you say best princess? Hah!
Get some art.
We don't actually have any 100% confirmation on this yet, or even what stores have it. The image as originated on Reddit. Considering how many exclusives Toys R' Us runs for the "brony" demographic though, it's not too far fetched. Have we finally left our mark on the pink isle? Is it happening?
Quite a while back, it was anounced that these guys would be dropping the boys and girls section in the UK. Maybe this is a sign of things to come?
Thanks to Dinokor for the heads up!
The first arc of the My Little Pony comics popped up over a year ago, and this animationis based on the ending of that.
Some of the animation is a little bit stiff, but overall it does a good job of representing the battle. Get it down below!
Looks like Luna needs to head back to med school which for her I bet involves playing Dr. Mario for six hours straight or Trauma Center, heaven forbid.

The Hot Topic exclusive vinyl LP collections are now available over on their website for those that don't want to take a trip to their store. For a quick recap on what these actually include:

- Both albums contain 12 of the same tracks, with a bonus for each edition (Celestia/Luna), including The Gala Song, Love is in Bloom, and Becoming Popular (Promising the "best of" fan favorites).
Get Luna here, and Celestia here.

Description: One week, Applejack saves Rarity's life. To show her thanks and generosity, Rarity buys Applejack a brand new Crystal Powered Servomatic Apple Loader 4000. Ponyville is so doomed.

After AJ has consistently hit the bottom of most polls involving the mane six we decided to start an appreciation day for our little orange pony. Considering the spread of the terrible background pony meme over the past year or so I think she really does deserve some time in the spotlight. Our last two AJ days were great successes so let's make this one even better!
Starting now till Oct 15th, everyone has a chance to send in whatever AJ related material they know of or have created themselves! That includes banners, art, games, music, ect! When you send in your AJ stuff make sure to put in the subject line AJ Day - Whatever you are sending in so it can be properly sorted and not eaten by our firstname.lastname@example.org box. Then when Oct 15th rolls around we can have a wonderfully AJ filled Autumn day!
One last thing because I just know someone is going to bring it up in the comments. Yes, we will have some other appreciation days for characters that deserve some spotlight. A Celestia Day and Spike Day are just some examples we are thinking of so expect some more fun character themed days to come!
The princesses took this round from the looks of it. We only have four more rounds of voting to go before the contest officially ends. If you still wanted to get your entries in, you can find the page for that over here! It still amazes me how fast this year went.
And grab the one above over here.
Thanks to Rick for sending it.
