With everyone here preparing for the GREAT EQD TAKEOVER of Galacon, we didn't have time to do anything crazy for Lauren Faust's birthday today! But we figured we should make you all aware. Without her, we wouldn't be here today would we? The creator of the greatest fandom on the internet!
Happy Birthday Lauren Faust!
Celestia does hint at being a party girl a bit it seems. With 1000+ years of rule you've got to let your hair down sometimes. And she has a lot of it to let down.
Evening guys! Ready to chat my friends?

The Timey Whimey saga continues! How are they going to fix this mess I wonder?

Celebrate the FRIENDSHIP. Suddenly I really want ice cream. Why does this cartoon have so much delicious looking food? Can equines even eat ice cream and chocolate?
Anyway, get the art storm below!

Technically, Sunset Shimmer here is a pony. She may not look like it, but she totally is. There are all sorts of interesting cross-species debates that can go with that kind of transformation, along with pony Twilight and her sudden interest in a a monkey with blue hair, but that's not what this covers! We should totally dive into that some day though... it would be interesting.
ANYWAY, there is probably another Sunset Shimmer out there wandering around as a legit human. Will we ever see her? Where is she? What do you think?
Head on down below for some analysis from DrWolf on the subject. I have to admit, his theory is... intriguing, if a little easy to debunk.
Nice to do one of these from home for a change though I will be in Europe next week so back to using my phone or something. Ready for streams guys?
There will be no streams next weekend as I will be at GalaCon! If you're there too, make sure to come say hi to the lab coat pony!
As always with this event, if you want to partake in the madness make sure to send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, the type of art you'll be doing, a gallery link (optional) a link to your livestream and a banner (also optional). Make sure that your stream follows our content guidelines as laid out under our submit tab and also make sure to that you can be ready to stream at our standard time of 4pm EST / 1pm PST on Saturday. Also, if you participated in this week's stream event please send me the art you made so I can include it in next week's Livestream Drawfriend.
The third movie apparently isn't the end of the ride! The Equestria Girls book series is continuing, with another entry dropping in April of next year. This one is listing at 80 pages, which is a tad bit shorter than their usual length. That could just be an early approximation though. Have the description:
Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Rarity and the rest of the girls from Canterlot High are all featured in this tell-all book about their likes, dislikes, friendships, activities, and more! Want to know what's on the minds of the most popular Equestria Girls of Canterlot High? You can find out when you read this funny book, "written" in the girls' own words. Thier secret hopes, fears, and thoughts about themselves and each other fill the pages, along with tons of drawings and doodles. There are flaps that reveal some suprises, stickers to add pizzazz, and write-in activites for girls to express their own thoughts and feelings, too!
That's more typos than EQD! Or is that even possible? Anyway, expect it next year. You can find the listing over here.
Thanks to TwiStar for the heads up.
Amazon is bustin out the playsets to go along with that ridiculous amount of stuff listed the other day. Rarity's Botique that was spotted in stores last week has now made it's way over there.
Chances are we are going to see most of that SDCC merchandise pop up over the next few weeks. They did list August on a lot of the tags. I'm still waiting for my Coco Pommel...
Head on down below the break for all the usual stock images, along with links!
Hot Topic has finally listed the three CMC that have been appearing in stores on their website this past week. Each one is dropping for $14.80. As with all the Funko figures, there is a 1 in 24 chance of getting one of those translucent ponies, which typically sell on eBay for crazy amounts.
Head on down below the break for details, images, and links of all of them!
They may have completely missed the mark with the generation of the pony statue, but that "Rainbow Wheel" collection we reported on back in June is officially released over in the UK. Vomiting ponies and various Rainbow Dash styles are all available. That seems to be the primary focus.
You can find most of it over here! The prices are absolutely crazy though. I guess it's a high fashion thing? You can find some slightly cheaper ones over here.
Get more images of the in-store display below the break. It's definitely worth looking at, for the insanity.
There seems to be a pretty big push for Chicken Pinkie Pie lately doesn't there? I wonder if it is a sign of things to come this Halloween?
A new shirt starring her has been spotted at Hot Topic, image of that below.
And in other news, more CMC Figures are arriving. It looks like the full lineup is ready to purchase. I wonder why they skipped online this time? At least we have a normal Sweetie Belle image now.
Note: Now online!
Thanks to Micheal for the images!
Hmm, early morning? Check. Weird content? Check. Ponies? Check.
It's really odd that this post is not only titled 3am News but it's exactly like a lot of our early morning posts. Let the weirdness spread!
Morning guys! Hope you all slept well, ready to chat?
