While we don't have an exact location to link to for these yet, it looks like Discord, Derpy, and Rainbow Dash are going to be released toe gather in the POP! line from Funko. The submitter says they will be dropped around January. Hopefully a store page pops up soon!
Thanks to Drew for the heads up.
Good news for all you UK people out there. For once you won't have to wait half a year to get something official from pony! Progress!
The Daring Do Adventure Collection now has a release date over there, just 9 days after the USA/Canada drop. The UK version of Hatchette has it set for October 16th. It doesn't look like it has popped up on Amazon yet, but you can get it straight from the source instead if you don't want to wait on using that flood of gift cards relatives got you last year.
Thanks to Chakat for sending it!

I wonder how many Changelings chrysalis has in her arsenal at this point? How long does it even take to breed and grow a new hive of Changelings?
If they are like any other king of hivemind race from fantasy settings, Equestria is doomed.

Welp, that's dark. Flash Sentry became a pretty big issue for quite a few people in the fandom. Twilight Sparkle and the mane 6 can't have love interests they said! He's chasing after a pony they'd say! Why is Twilight Sparkle showing interest in a human they wondered! Did her biological wires get crossed when she transitioned to a human, or are ponies open to that sort of thing?
Regardless, we have an After the Fact all about Flashy up there. Get it down below.
Thanks to Andrew and everyone else for sending it!
Wings are intimidating! Check those things out. Twilight Sparkle went crazy when her library was destroyed, and Tirek felt the brunt of it. Turns out, doing this in a show that was originally intended for little kids makes the adult audience crazy. Super Saiyan Twilight was amazing.
Twilight Kingdom took the final preliminary round, but it's time to decide the BEST OF THE BEST. Which episode is going to rock this poll? Get it on the side bar.
And get the results of round 7 below!
We are just three days out from the big IDW/Hasbro panel happening on the 9th of October, at 6:15-7:00 PM. While they don't always release huge amounts of information, we still have the potential for something interesting here with the huge gap of news going on at the moment.
The official title is: "IDW Hasbro: Transformers, Ponies & More!", which may mean the focus will be on the official comics. Future series tend to be the focus if previous IDW panels are any indication. What subjects would you like to see them explore in the print format?
On top of that, NYCC is a massive convention. There is always a chance that some major show news will drop. Consider me crossing my fingers for some season 5 goodness.
We have someone out there covering the panel, but if you see any pony stuff on the floor that might be new, feel free to send a picture of it off to [email protected]. EQD has always been big on the crowd reporting, and comic conventions aren't anything to skip out on there.
Get the details below, and drop your hopes in the comments!

For those that don't follow the Australian fandom news, a major convention over there recently went belly up less than a week out. Quite a few people were left with flights and hotels reserved that they could not cancel. The industrious bronies in the area decided to salvage what was going to be a massive failure via a impromptu convention going by the name of Salvagecon. ABC over in Australia hopped in and did a report on it.
Overall, it's positive. If you are curious about it, go check it out here!
Thanks to Jordan, Joshua, and everyone else that sent it!
We asked a few days ago for Rainbow Rocks reviews and reactions, and wow... you all sure did deliver. We have a whopping 25 video reviews, as well as a couple of written ones.
So, a week out, what is your final verdict on the movie? It seems like the initial reaction was largely positive.
Anyway, head on down below the break for a bunch of fandom reactions to Rainbow Rocks!

Just in case you were curious about the way Twilight's new crib is being marketed, this should give you the idea. Head on down below the break for the commercial of Twilight Sparkle's Friendship Rainbow Kingdom.
For those out there collecting the Design a Pony lineup, Cadance has been spotted over at Target. I for one really like that model. I don't think I'd want to paint it though. They need a lazy man's version so I can get her and Luna!
Thanks to Luna Flaire for the heads up.
