That poor pony. I guess these kids really do like MLP, but that pony's friends aren't going to let him live it down.
Last Roundup of 2014 everyone! Another year down!
Arriving soon in many card shops, comic stores, and hobby locales across the US is the latest issue of Game Trade Magazine, commonly given out free to customers. And, included in Issue #179 of GTM is an exclusive alternate art promo version of this excellent blue Ultra Rare from Premiere Edition: Rainbow Dash, Winged Wonder!
Winged Wonder is a great addition to practically any blue deck. Don't play blue? This is excellent trade fodder. Either way, you can't lose. This issue of GTM is going to fly off the shelves, so be sure to check in with your friendly local game shop soon!
We have another thing to look forward to this Spring, with Fluttershy now available for pre-order at 4DE! The estimated release period is some time in March, and as is the norm for plushies from these guys, they can sometimes be pretty tricky to acquire. I'm not usually into the pre-order thing, but in this case it's a good idea if you want one. They are going to go fast, just like last time.
On top of that, the unicorn version of Twilight Sparkle is getting another run before they shift over to Alicorn. She joins Fluttershy for a March 2015 release period. It's about time she popped up again!

Dang, it's a good thing that Rainbow Dash stuck with Tank! If you let her have whatever she wanted it probably would be something that could endanger the town.

Courage is Magic 1.18 Releases! Full Dungeons and Dragons Conversion For all YouTable Toppers Out Thereby Sethisto
I remember the days rolling the d20 around. Good times. Courage is Magic has released it's new update, with a bunch of classes, weapons, and more to keep that Dungeons and Dragons style pony madness going long into the future. The full update note can be found below the break!
One thing is for certain, the pony community definitely takes the show's "friendship" morals to heart. From meetup groups to giant conventions, getting together and celebrating Friendship is Magic is just something the fandom does.
There are a lot of them, and not everyone is so social. I wonder how many people out there simply lurk the various pony based things o n the internet, but never get involved beyond that?
I guess it will be difficult to get them to come out of the woodwork and comment, but for the rest of you, have you ever been to a MLP meetup or convention? Was it your first time meeting people from online in person? How did your experience go? Hit the comments up with your story!
Apparently, Hasbro ran out of ideas and just sell the logo itself on things now. This case was found at a Toys R' Us in New York. Apparently it has a button to press on the "My" part, though no batteries are included.
I'm more confused at a toy that is literally just the log than anything else.
Thanks to Lauryn for sending it, and get more random merch below!
With the pony Armageddon joining the swarm of other Hasbro toy brands doing incredibly well right now, Hasbro's main franchises have jump a whopping 36%. This includes My Little Pony, Transformers, Play-Doh, and Magic: The Gathering. While it isn't split per brand like normal, quite a few toys have released in the last year that would probably point toward pony being a big chunk of that increase.
Here's to hoping it keeps going! More money in Hasbro's pocket means potentially better ways to not give us giant gaps of time with no pony! I need side a side series.
The full article with all the specific percentages can be found over here.

As one of the best Horoscope ponies from a few years ago, Capricorn clearly needed to be loved. A restaurant in Manila, Philippines is taking it to the next level though, with an entire restaurant branded with her glorious visage. Either this is a photoshop (and a good one at that with the reflections on the sign on the upper left), or we may have a new brony meetup location for all you Filipino people (I had no idea that was spelled with an F, why is that?) .
Lets hope someone from Hasbro sees it and opens some Horoscope pony restaurants over here in the states!
Thanks to Jason for the heads up.
(Update: Turns out it is completely legit, providing karaoke, Drinks, and... Prostitutes.)
Here's something I bet a lot of people would like in their houses. Someone painted a giant pony wall mural of Canterlot and Celestia over on imgur. I guess if you have the talent and wallspace, you might as well fill it with a painting! Now we need a Luna one, along with more information. I wonder how long it took them?
Would you paint an entire wall in your house with ponies?
Thanks to Khalua for the heads up.
