The year was 2013, and the Brony fandom had just begun ramping up it's convention domination. We had a few major successful events under our belt, but behind the scenes, Hasbro was still trying to figure out how open they should be in terms of show guests attending community sponsored events.
When Las Pegasus Unicon first contacted us, we were pretty excited. The thought of taking our pony friendship entourage to vegas sounded absolutely awesome. Even if the event itself was boring, we had an awesome city to explore.
How could a convention in one of the cheapest vacation destinations to stay at and fly to, possibly fail? Somehow, this one pulled it off! Learn the behind the scenes tale below the break!
For those looking for a pretty sweet deal with collecting the MLP Comics in a physical format, you really can't get a better deal than the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Omnibuses. Thirteen issues for $24.99 ($1.92 an issue) really is a pretty sweet deal.
And like all trade paperback releases, what's coming in the future is often solicited by Amazon months in advance. Well, the third volume of the Omnibus Series has been listed on Amazon with a tentative release date of June 16th, 2016.
The volume will collect the entire third year of the Friendship is Magic comic series. If you missed that part of the series when it was initially coming out, Amazon has gladly provided a description of the contents to remind everyone of what stories were told.
The adventures continue as the group heads to Canter Creek to investigate a shady land deal; problems near the Everfree Forest start affecting Ponyville; Cheerilee visits her sister; the town gets split into two factions over Ponyville Days; bad apples come alive at Sweet Apple Acres; and an enigmatic new foe brings together some of the most villainous characters in Equestria. Collects issues #25-37 of the ongoing My Little Pony comic series.If you feel so inclined, you can pre-order the volume from Amazon.com here.

The My Little Pony facebook page has uploaded an HD version of the new trailer released earlier today announcing Season 6 and it's Spring release date. As usual, outside the USA some countries can't watch it. Luckily we have Youtube for that. Get both embedded below!
We technically already posted this earlier, but without any kind of official confirmation. The poll results seemed to point to these four winning, and they now officially have.
Expect Lyra, Luna, Fluttershy, and Celestia chibi figures to release next! We will post them up when pre-orders begin.

Sweet dreams by Bugplayer
Gameloft has been shutting down studios left and right according to Gamasutra. Seven have already fallen under the chopping block. The studio apparently responsible for the My Little Pony game is the most recent in hits, with their New Zealand office closing and 160 employees laid off.
What will this mean for the game? I'm assuming it's still profitable considering the updates slowly trickling out still. Chances are development will be switched over to one of their many other studios, or the new one in Nigeria.
Or maybe the dream will happen, and Hasbro will throw some money into a real pony game. I still want my Elder Scrolls: Equestria Hasbro! Make it happen...
Thanks to Scortex for the heads up!
KP and Scorcher bring on a double dose of more analysis! One covers Celestia, the other the Discord book released by G.M. Berrow. Head on down below for both!
WeAreBorg here with more speculation of what is to come in the 6th season of Friendship is Magic. With the new season just around the corner, (I was so totally right) our motley imaginations must be running wild with what we can hope to expect. I’ve taken a look at way too many polls and episode synopses, and compiled a list of Season 6 episode we need to see.
Head on past the break for more possible spoilers than an iTunes slip up...
As expect, with the leak Cadences foal in the Germany, Hasbro has revealed pretty much everything involving the foal. Everything from animated GIFS to her upcoming playset and figures was dropped for the internet to drool over for while we wait for season 6 to finally arrive.
And joining that, we have a SPRING RELEASE for Season 6! HYPE TIME. (and good job WeAreBorg on nailing that!)
Head on down below the break for TONS OF IMAGES and the teaser clip (Now available outside the USA)!
Trixie's getting some love with a metal remix of her big villain song, followed by some Celestia inspired DEATH METAL. Cause that's a thing. Get it below!

2.) Twisted Sister - Celestial Throne (Vocal - Death Metal)
For all of you out there collecting the Squishie Pops figures, a new wave of ponies and a ferris wheel toy are all apparently on the way pictured by someone over on Instagram. New in this set, we have Derpy, Octavia, Vinyl scratch, and Derpy Hooves joinin a different pose for the mane 6.
As for the release date, there isn't any information on that available yet. Expect that information, and more, hopefuly next month.
Thanks to Micheal for sending it.
