Some Zecora for tonight! It's really cool that she has popped up in lots of episodes since season 1. I'm really hoping we have a zebra homeland story at some point!
Evening guys! Ready for some chatter?
If you happen to be over in the UK, the My Little Pony magazine is running yet another interesting new figure. This one comes with a completely blank base for you to paint however you wish. The colors included are Twilight's usual stuff, but I bet some of you could make her a bit more interesting... or terrifying.
This one in particular appared at ASDA.
And go get a Trixie too.
Thanks to Richard for sending it.
We have an extra page of Friends Forever #24 for all of you to dive into. Gilda and Rarity are teaming up, and it's going to be absolute madness if the preview is any indication.
Head on down below the break to check it out!
It's looking like Saucy is here to stay. The majority of you are fine with it, and 27% of you love it.
We will of course still be running saucy tags, unless I derp and miss Coco Pommel due to tunnel-visioning in on having to tag the Rainbow Dash like yesterday. I've gotten a bit better at remembering, but with 80 images like yesterday, sometimes things slip through the cracks.
I should probably note on the humanized front, that we will not be saucy tagging bikinis/platemail bikinis. If it's something you see when walking through the mall, we probably aren't going to tag it. Obviously this changes if the expression is overly suggestive, but the warrior Luna in the drawfriend a few days ago was fine. The same goes for actual ponies. If it's just Cadance in a "bikini" playing volleyball it probably won't be tagged.
Anyway, next poll, Season 6 time:
Should Starlight Glimmer Stay in Ponyville with The Mane 6?
Get it on the side bar, and get the results of this one below the break!
Comic: Of Black White / Eating / Rogue Diamond 7:2 / To Love Alicorn 60 / Crush 15 / Student of the Night 74 / Dawn Knight 5by Calpain
He should probably listen to Discord, that's just how things work here in Equestria!
Comic time, click for full!
I totally thought this was Trixie at first. I think I'll just keep thinking that. Princess Trixie. It has a nice ring to it doesn't it? Or is it Princess Lulamoon?
Anyway, you got your moon horse above, get your others below!
Fluffy Luna - Dec 31st by viwrastupr
Here's a weird one spotted over on Facebook by Squeaky Belle. In a new profile picture update, the official page has tossed up the image above. Ponyville in particular appears to have a full on... Mario Kart track? What is usually a river flowing through Ponyville has been dried up and blocked off by hay bales.I can't imagine this is some kind of art derp with how specfic it is. The only other option is Running of the Leaves, but that happened on the outskirts and didn't include a blockade.
So, what do you think it hints at? A future episode with another type of race? A hint at an upcoming pony kart racing game from Hasbro gaming? Either way, it looks like something cool might be on the horizon, and I would be more than alright with driving through Cloudsdale.
A damaged robot pony, unlike anything ever seen in pre-industrial Equestria, is found in the orchard. Before it collapses, it says only two words: "Twilight Sparkle..."
Twilight fixes the mechanical mare and gives her a new directive: "Make friends." Now a robot must learn what it takes to be a good friend and, while she's at it, what it means to live...
Now on to the artists!
As always with this event, if you want to partake in the madness make sure to send an email to me at [email protected] 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.
UCC Distributing Releasing New "Chrome" Pony Lineup at Hot Topic, Gamestop, Target, and Five Below in 3 Weeksby Sethisto
A group called UCC Distributing is apparently breaking into the pony market, with new molded chrome figurines. Right now they are teasing all of the characters up above. And for the first time ever, we get some TRIXIE to start with!That may not be exciting to you, but for those of us who have accepted best unicorn into their hearts, this is wonderful news!
Quite a few stores have been listed for stocking these in three weeks:
- Hot Topic
Sneak peek at the new My Little Pony chrome mini figures! Each figure is hand painted in a special chrome paint that has never been done before that make each figure look incredible!! These figures come packed in a random blind pack so you never no what one you will find. There are 9 different characters to collect with one being a special Gold chase figure.
And others will probably get them too.
Get the box image below!
The Christmas season might be over, but we still have that awesome holiday pony music album, and one song in particular got some AWESOME PMV love.
Stop reading this and go watch it below, regardless of how tired you are of the holidays! It's Twilight Sparkle singing it. You wouldn't deny TWILIGHT would you?!
It seems something may have happened to the comments of the last few days (which sucks since there was so much good feedback). We are looking into what may have happened, but unfortunately, Intense Debate seems to slowly be dropping support.
This means the program as a whole is unstable. We are looking into migrating over to Disqus, which most sites use now days. The problem is, Intense Debate is having trouble exporting all of the comments.
We may need to switch over and wait for Intense Debate's export to catch up. Until then, if there are any old comments you love, be sure to back them up just in case. This recent "outage" hopefully was just a small derp, and these comments will come back. It's looking like new posts, and random posts from a back about week ago are effected.
Disqus should be a much more stable, and modern platform for all of you. We tested it years ago and it has improved dramatically since then. The other option is Livefyre, but we are still looking into the pluses and minuses of that.
tl;dr - Backup any Intense Debate comments you want to keep. They appear to be having database issues. We might be switching to Disqus soon and importing everything over (including old blogger comments!)
Update: It's looking like 3 days were deleted, with three weeks of random posts getting hit. Old comments seem to be safe. We still want to get off the boat before it possibly happens again though, as Intense debate has closed support.
Update 2: I should probably note that Blogger is no longer going to support ID soon too, so Disqus was going to happen eventually. This just makes it more urgent as we don't want to lose anymore comments.
Yeah you, dude/dudette in that category of people that burnt out on brony music. Here's an example of someone you should follow in the "new" music scene. Silver Note has been rocking it for a while now, and only has 900 subs! That's ridiculous. And he teamed up with this new DecodingTheCodes person for even more awesome!
You should go check out that song below!
Or else I'll cover the blog in Trixie for the next week!
Episode Rewatch - My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic Part 1 and 2 - How People Reacted When It Began!by Sethisto
Another one of our new series as suggested by all of you over here, is the episode rewatch! Each Saturday we will cover an oldschool episode, and give a bit of history on how people reacted when it first aired, 10 interesting scenes, and what our general idea on it is now. There is a lot of history in the brony fandom, and it all started with the episodes.
Feel free to join us in the comments, and tell your friends! Maybe we can get some community stuff going each Saturday while waiting for new episodes.
Below the break, I hit up Friendship is Magic Episode 1. Get that, plus a stream link!
