- Every new major character from Season 4 has a Character Card, along with all the old favorites like the Mane Six, Princess Luna and Princess Celestia, Discord, and more
- All 91 episodes are featured in their own Episode Card, with a lots of info like first air date, a synopsis, and trivia
- There are 9 Lenticular Cards that bring scenes from the show into motion, 4 of which can be found in pack and 4 are box toppers
Above are four of the Lenticular Cards in Series 3, featuring scenes from Sleepless in Ponyville, Boast Busters, Dragonshy, and Magical Mystery Cure. And there are lots of new cards to check out below the break, including the Pinkie Pie and Cheese Sandwich Special Foils!
Currently this Mega Post is a Teeny-tiny Mini Post. I have a feeling that will change as the year goes by and we get more guest announcements from the various MLP cons.
Below the break, you'll find the current list of confirmed staffers who are making physical appearances at the various conventions throughout the year. This list will continue to be updated as the year goes on, so if you don't see a member of the staff your looking for, do not panic. There's still plenty of time for them to be announced.
As a reminder, if you happen to come across any member of the show staff who is making a guest appearance at a convention that we do not know about, please submit it to us ASAP. We'll post the announcement and add them to this list post haste!
Not exactly sure how long this has been up on their site, however as part of Equestria Daily's ongoing efforts to bring awareness of the availability of the Official MLP—be they show or otherwise—we're throwing it up here!
Derby City Comic Con takes place on June 20th–21st in the beautiful city of Louisville Kentucky! If you happen to live in or will be visiting the area that weekend, consider dropping by and saying hello!
Be sure to check out the IDW Comic Circuit Mega Post to find more of Katie's appearances throughout throughout the year!
Special Thanks to @dd_n_indy for the heads up!
I just knew the socks video would make it in this month! I mean, it's ponies and socks, how can it not be popular?
We've got the top ten pony vids of January coming at you after the break!
DOVAHSHY. It looks like the open world single player Western RPG is the winner of this one! I for one welcome the ability to travel anywhere in ponyland and install all sorts of questionable mods to completely corrupt the ideas that the game designers originally came up with! Clearly my pony needs to dual wield lightsabers and summon a pet Balrog in her skimpy anime armor. Why would I have it any other way?
Time for a new poll! Hearths and Hooves style:
What do you think of fandom inspired pony romance?
Hit it up on the side bar!
And get the results of this poll below the break.
Those crazy Russian pony fans have dug up a couple of new POP! figures, including moonbutt with the most cotton candy mane ever. Pinkie Pie can't even come close to competing with that. I'm sure we will see loads of information on these in the near future, but for now, all we have is the tiny previews above! Russian ingenuity can only go so far.
Thanks to Fluttershys for the heads up!
Man, remember back in the day when we were ecstatic over the first animated GIFs that fans made since we had not seen anything like it before? Seems so long ago now that we have all these awesome animation projects all over the place dedicated to pony.
For instance, the above animatic for Harmony from the Moonrise album clocks in at an impressive 4:30 and while it is expected to take another year and then some to complete it already looks quite beautiful in its rough form. I can't wait to see what this baby will look like when it is released!
Check it out after the break!
The Shake Ups of Ponyville return with a bit of Hearts and Hooves Day, followed by a creepy one from TIF Whitney and Sylphstorm! Complete opposite does of the spectrum.
Get both below!
1.) Hearts and Hooves - The Shake Ups In Ponyville (Vocal - Acoustic)
2.) TIFWhitney & Slyphstorm - Behind the mask (Vocal - Electronic)
2015 is going to be absolutely flooded with pony stuff if these recent toy fairs are any indication, and now we have some images of the upcoming sets appearing around the web. Twilight Sparkle's castle and Rarity's Botique were both on display last week, but the videos didn't do a very good job of showing them.
Your rooms are about to get much more purple, unlike how pink the last ones were. Success?
Thanks to James for the images.
You'd think after all this time Celestia would know how her student usually handles magic the first time around. It can get a little messy...
Comics everyone! Click for full!
Our 2015 convention listing will be going up in the next few days! If you happen to be running one (and only convention runners please), head on over to the convention page for information on submitting. The format will be exactly the same, with a button on the side bar instead of hidden in the menu.
Expect to see it soon! Conventions that don't send in information will be roughly listed.
For everyone else, have a Trixie from yesterday! Isn't she adorable?
It looks like ponies will be heading over to that super young kid demographic soon. A new "First Friends" toy series has been announced, with the Pinkie Pie Pony Popper above starting it off. Joining her, are a whole bunch of mega-chibi ponies and playsets with parts that kids probably wouldn't swallow.
Anyway, get more images below!
Thanks to Pink Pearl and James for the heads up!
