I'm COMANDEERING the roundup tonight, so get another Trixie. Hopefully your night is filled with wizardponi. That was the goal after all. Glorious wizardponi.
Get your roundup stuff below! For MAGIC!
Trixie shows off her newfound EARTH MAGIC. I guess all those years of rock breaking payed off.
Would you like some Trixie in season 5? I'd like some Trixie in season 5. I forgot she was a pony. It has been so long since the SUMMER OF TRIXIE.
Now go Trixie below.
PONIES ON CUBES. Because why not?
It's Music of the Day time. Head on down below for the swarm!
And another reminder: Include a genre when you submit music! We have very few with genres tonight. It helps a lot for the people browsing.
MUSIC! If that poll a few weeks ago was any indication, you all love the stuff. BABSCon has it's announcement slated for all of you looking to see it live. Head on down below the break for the press release!
Friendship is Magic's renewal is still somewhat of a mystery over on Netflix, but we do have a bit of good news if the listing for it is any indication.Friendship is Magic's availability has been bumped to the 17th instead of it's start of February take-down time. My guess is negotiations are still happening, but the head honchos over there didn't want to axe your cartoon equines due to those sometimes ridiculously long business negotiations.
Heres to hoping it gets completely renewed for another year!
Thanks to Christian and Alexander for the heads up!
We got your heavy electronic coming out of Silver Note to start, followed by BANJO AND KAZOOIE VS. CHRYSALIS. Truly a glorious idea if I do say so myself. The nostalgia sensors are going absolutely crazy.
Anyway, get the music below!
1.) Silver Note - Detonate (Vocal - Electronic)
2.) [MLP FiM x Banjo Kazooie] Battle With Queen Chrysalis (Remix - BANJO KAZOOOOIIE)
Sombra. Despot king of the Crystal Empire. A being so evil that his mere memory causes physical pain to crystal slaves.A character whose introductory episodes did almost absolutely nothing with.Which is why, out of all five issue in Fiendship is Magic, his issue is the one I'm most excited for.A few days ago, I had the opportunity to sit down with both Jeremy Whitley and Brenda Hickey—the writer and artist of this issue respectively—and chat about their involvement in the issue. How they got involved with the project. And most importantly, how they approached this issue that's very different from their previous works on Friendship is Magic.Be sure to check it out after the break, and remember…Havete ad regem
Comics: Royal Courtesy / Caught in a Breeze / The Iron Pony / Stars Part 24 / ADF Part 6 / ES Specialby Sethisto
It still amazes me how much we have shifted to long arc update comics over time. Hell we used to just wait until they completed!
Have three oneshots, and the usual update army below. Click the images for the full ones.
I'm commandeering one of these artist spotlight thingies cause cute always needs a spotlight! You have probably seen this artist around in some form on Deviant Art or in our convention compilations.
Centchi has been dropping the pony art since late 2012 according to Deviant Art. Since then she has drawn an incredible amount of ponies, many commissioned by various people throughout the fandom. Her style takes the Friendship is Magic form and adds yet another layer of extra cuteness on top, via bubbly, shiny ponies and a bit extra of that "chibi" without sacrificing the pony form we all love.
These days her focus appears to be on OC ponies, from the Bronycon mascots, to an armada of comissions. Few artists in the fandom have released such a massive amount of stuff. And did I mention bat ponies? So many bat ponies. Some of the most adorable bat ponies anywhere.
Anyway, get some samples below! Bask in the cute!
Know who needs more BAT? MAUD PIE! I never really considered the concept before. Pinkie Pie's dark and brooding sister sprouting bat wings and fangs seems to work much better than it should. I've always been a fan of happy and silly bats, but this is intriguing to say the least.
Anyway, it's plushie time. Get the swarm below!

Romance, or "Shipping" is something pretty much any fandom out there gets involved in. People naturally crave that extra connection to tie the characters in a setting together, and Friendship is Magic just happens to make it even cuter. Pony shipping has been around forever, since the very first threads happened on the comics and cartoons board of old.
So, good citizens of the ponynet, what are your views on shipping the ponies? Do you actively take part in it? And if you do, who is your favorite ship?
Head on down below to those comments to drop your 2 cents!
We have more 12 dollar temporary shirts! Cereal ponies and a few of the ones from other sites are currently available over on Unamee. Expect the movie parodies, expect the Luna, and get it all down below the break!
Time for METAL. Journal with Cadance in the first one and L-Train, and get a new guy and go to Atlantis afterward! Get both below!
1.) The L-Train - The Crystal Pendant (Instrumental - Symphonic Metal)
2.) SDreamExplorerS - Curse Of Atlantis Pegasus (Instrumental - Metal)
We had a Shining Armor, Cadance, and Luna leak a few days ago from the Build a Bear site database, and now we already have signage for both of them popping up internally at Build a Bear. Time to start hunting for a date! Here's to hoping Moonbutt and Candybutt hit stores soon.
Thanks to Anon for the heads up! Yay Anon.
Dang, you'd better not mess with Fluttershy or she'll unleash her troops on you. She'd probably ask nicely first at least, she does have manners after all.
News time! Get it after the break!
I wouldn't run over there and welcome to the herd or anything, but Rainbow Dash did manage to get front page on the Green Day Facebook page and it's 34 million likes. Not a bad day for a pony that dreams of that wonderbolts fame and fortune!
That was corny.
Anyway, you can check it out over here.
Thanks to Liz and Ally for sending it!
A Power Ponies book is on the way, though only clocking in at 32 pages as opposed to the G.M. Berrow books with their chapter-book size. Amazon doesn't have much information on it other than the cover above. Here's to hoping it's a new story instead of a repeat!
Get Power Ponies to the Rescue over here!
Thanks to Micheal for sending it.

Here it is everyone! The grand finale for Equestria Daily's Interview with Bobby Curnow!
Which words of wisdom will he impart as we bring this interview to a close? What involvement does he have with MLP outside of his role as editor for the comic line? How hard are you going to bust a gut when you read the first question and answer in this part?
You all should know the drill by now. It's all answered after the break!
Got some cool information coming out of Germany! Hasbro recently showed off a lot of new toys and such as well as information about the brand over in Europe. While the presser was originally in German we can thank our good friend Gerjet for translating it for us!
Check on after the break!
Dilarus has such an adorable style for his comics! Thankfully TBOI doesn't look like it is ending anytime soon so we get some more adorable Fluttershy.

A few weeks ago, I dropped an editorial comparing Equestria to Earth, and showing how much it seemed to lack the makings of a Utopia as originally believed back during season one. Overall, it came off as a bit more negative than I would have liked.
Let's be realistic here, ponyland is awesome. I bet a lot of you would love to move over there and chill with the citizens in their everyday lives. So lets explore the other side! Time to delve into the positives that make this world so incredibly interesting.
Head on down below the break for round two of Equestria Vs. Earth!
I feel like we haven't posted anything really unique in a while, so lets go ahead and do that. These two wall princesses were apparently commissioned from Sebychu over on Deviant Art, who also does some incredibly badass drawings. Just check out that Luna.
It always amazes me how varied the talent is in this fandom.
We suddenly got a flood of these, which is probably going to be the case for most weeks leading up to summer, so lets get a convention post going!

And get your full headlines below!
Cutie Mark Magic brushables have been popping up quite a bit in the official merchandise lines lately, which has many thinking it could be a theme in season five. Something mysterious has appeared over in the world of Taobao though, with the introduction of these flowery ponies. Like the Breezies and Rainbow Power of the fourth, it may be a hint at things to come.
We don't have much information on them other than the usual Taobao stuff. Things that appear there can take months to actually hit stores in the west.
Of course, Hasbro drops quite a few sets that never see the series at all. I wouldn't mind an episode about Pinkie Pie's Boutique though. Wouldn't that be interesting?
Thanks to Lucy for the pics!
