• Official Season 6 Opener Press Release - Some Cutie Mark Crusaders Info

    Yesterday, Hasbro sent out the official press release for the season 6 opening. It doesn't reveal a ton that we don't already know, but it does make note of how the Cutie Mark Crusaders will be treated going forward. I know a few people were asking that in the Big Jim interview yesterday.

    Head on down below the break for those minor spoilers, along with major ones that we already know of from the season opener!

    Cutie Mark Crusader part extracted, what we can expect from them for the season:

    With their cutie marks finally acquired, the Cutie Mark Crusaders begin to explore their destinies as the magic of Season 6 unfolds.

    Kinda vague, but it sounds like we will be seeing a few episodes of them pulling what they did with Diamond Tiara.
