Where is all my nerdy Moondancer music? Shouldn't she be rolling in the robotic science stuff by now?
Anyway, get your Music of the Day while I figure out how to make one.
Magical Mystery Cure caused a lot of confusion in the fandom back in the day, causing quite a few arguments and a lot of discussion. This video that we dropped into the Roundup last night apparently answers a few questions we had about the episode and sparked enough discussion in the comments that I think this is worth a slot on the front page.
Check on after the break for the full video and learn a little bit about how the episode came to be.
We almost went to a Gravity Falls panel, but the room filled up with a line still all the way around the outside hallway. Imagine that! It looks like we got a small bit a pony though. Is this new addition seen in the trailer released a shoutout to pony? I suppose we will just have to wait for the episode!
Head on down below the break to check it out. The unicorn is at the 37 Second mark.
If you happen to be here at Comic Con, especially if you pre-ordered a Flutterbat, they have decided to sell some here. If you were one of the pre-order people, you have the option to send an email to customer service to cancel it and pick one up instead.
Happy shopping! Hope you are luckier than we are at getting through the crowds.
Our Balloon Pony friend has done it again! With the unique characters from Party Pooped, he decided to take a shot at making Prince Rutherford with marvelous results.
Check on after the break for more images of his latest creation and make sure to pay a visit to his page here! He'll also be at Grand Brony Gala this weekend so make sure to say hi to him if you're visiting.
Octavia and Vinyl Scratch present: A whole bunch of wallpapers. Your desktop is looking a bit lacking on the pony front, and we need to fix that!
Head on down below the break for all of it as always.
We have never had actual ages stated in the show, only hints at how old the mane 6 are. Equestria Girls places them in high school, but over in ponyland, they don't appear to be in any kind of classes still. Some people have pointed out that Twilight Sparkle is post-grad school even.
So, we polled it, and you replied. Get the results of that below the break!
Onward to the next poll:
Which of Twilight's Canterlot friends do you like most? Lyra included.
Get that on the side bar!
Celestia here is a sun pony. Sun ponies like rock music. They also like some Jamaican flair. That's the obvious brain route taken when thinking up this concept. I know this because I am also a sun princess. Bask in my glory.
Anyway, go listen to some Celestia based SKA below!

Sorry kids, retailers are already celebrating your return to school. I remember how painful those commercials are when I was a kid. Knowing that my summer break was slowly ticking away, one day at a time. The dread of the return of homework... bad times.
At least you can return decked out in pony stuff! These were found at Toys R' Us, and we have way more after everything else below the break. Now go! Get your random merch!

Well, the MLP comics have been invading School Libraries via the Scholastic Book Fairs for a little while now. Is it really any surprise that the comics are now bypassing the book fairs and going directly into the libraries?
ABDO Publishing, a book publisher that specializes in producing Library Bound Hardcover Edition Books for libraries all around the world. What this means for the MLP comics is that the comics are going to be reprinted as special
These aren't the collected editions of the comics that the trades have been releasing for the last few years. Issues 1–8 of the Friendship is Magic Series and issues 1–6 of the Micro Series are being individually republished. That's 14 Hardcover Library Books.
Issues 1–6 of the Micro Series (for this edition re-branded as Pony Tales) are available now and can be ordered individually on ABDO's website or as a complete set on either ABDO's website or on Amazon.com here.
Issues 1–8 of the Friendship is Magic series are currently not available to order and are expected to release in September of this year.
One last thing, these are hardcover editions of twenty-four page comics. You should expect the price of these comics to be four times the price of the monthly printed comic series.
Special thanks to Cerberus for the heads up!

Hasbro posted a correction to their earlier announcement yesterday that season 6 was airing at the end of the year. Turns out, it's actually the second half of season 5 hitting TV at the end of the year. Heres to hoping its not a huge break before it begins! Chances are they are banking on Equestria Girls to split up the break.
At least its not a year right? Thanks to everyone who sent it in!
Update: Added pic, sources, Twitters and fixed spelling mistakes. - Cal
Twilight Sparkle and Moondancer's trip down memory lane slotted 283k viewers according to Nielsen digging website TV Media Insights. While much lower than Party Pooped and it's 369k, it did fall right on top of a major US holiday.
There also seems to be a huge lack of advertising this season for the last few episodes. I wonder if that has any kind of effect on it for the kids out there that swarm this stuff on Saturday morning?
Thanks to Jonny, Andy G., and everyone else for sending it!
We reported on the three SDCC Toys R' Us exclusives a little while ago and now they are available for purchase on the Toys R' Us website! Get them while they're hot and before they are gone.
Thanks to Disney Brony for sending them in!

Cheese Sandwich would certainly make a great dad. He would know all the ways to turn any frown upside down.
Comics my friends! Click for full! Warning on some gore in the Pun's Grief comic.
If there is one thing BronyCon is well known for above all else, it's BronyPalooza and the huge amount of talent that joins in on it. Can the floor handle that many people partying at once? I suppose we will find out soon.
Get the details of this year's event below the break!
Outside of Equestria Girls trailers, Hasbro has brought a whole bunch of it's 2015 lineup to show off at the show today. They also seem to have a rather large push for their Nightmare Nights designs. I wonder if this is a sign of things to come? That banner on the left up there literally reaches the ceiling.
Most of this stuff has already been shown at Toy Fair, but a few are upgraded models or complete versions of prototypes from that section.
If you are curious about the pony side of the Hasbro booth, head on down below the break to check out everything!
Phew, it is good to be back guys! I'm here up in Northern Michigan for awhile and it looks like the internet actually works this year so I can still partake in pony for the time I have up here. Huzzah!
Hope you all have been well, let's get to talking!
