Description: Button Mash is a pretty average colt. He likes video games, hates homework, and spends his days playing with his best friend/brother-from-another-mother, Rumble. Together they try to navigate the problems of everyday Ponyville, which would be perfectly ordinary if not for all the spirits of chaos, angry dictators, giant star bears, and the occasional schoolyard bully.The Magical World of Button Mash
These are the tales of how two mostly-normal foals deal with their very magical world.

Remember when I said don't pay attention to Applejack in the background of my BronyCon Coverage earlier this week.
If you ignored me, you were very wise. For you got a small hint as to what this book was actually going to be about. If you didn't, please check the images above you for what October's team is about. Special thanks to out friends at IDW Publishing for providing us with the exclusive first look at their Octoeber 2016 Solicitations!
Be sure to check this little fruit team-up solicitation out after the break!

Oh Filthy Rich. What have you done.
Aside from destroy Ponyville.
Anyways folks, I'm bringing these solicitations to you from beautiful, and sunny San Diego! I hope everyone who can make it is ready to have a good time at Comic-Con!
But before I get into my work of covering the convention, I still have duties here. So, once again thanks to our friends at IDW Publishing--no the irony is not lost that I'm bringing you these solicitations a literally miles outside of their main offices--be sure to check out the Equestria Daily's Exclusive First look at the full solicitation after the break!
I bet you all expected a bat pony with permanent purple stockings and a giant red bow up here. She tends to pop up a lot when I talk about OC ponies. I used to be in the anti-OC boat, but the rise of good art and less pony creator usage has completely changed me. I absolutely love OC ponies now.
Below the break, get the results. And onward to the next poll:
SDCC is this weekend, and the news WILL FLOOD! What are you most looking forward to seeing?
Get it on the side bar!
While Funko has seemingly gone silent on their primary lineup of pony figures, they still continue to expand their side sections. A new listing over on Toywiz seems to hint at an upcoming Power Ponies themed set in their Mystery Minis lineup.
Outside of that, we have absolutely no information on it. For a refresher on what Mystery Minis actually are, see subject A and B below:
Hopefully information on this releases soon! Maybe at their SDCC booth this weekend?
Thanks to Sharon for sending it.
Twilight Sparkle Used in Defense of Melania Trump's Allegedly Plagiarized Speech Section by RNC Officialby Sethisto
I have to admit, I don't think I ever expected to see fanart of Twilight Sparkle at the top of CNN's front page. Yet here we are, in 2016, and it's happening.
I'm not going to dive too deep into the politics here, but a brief summary should get you all caught up on what is currently exploding just about everywhere. During yesterday's Republican National Convention, Donald Trump's current wife, Melania, hosted a speech for her fellow party-goers. Unfortunately, it looks like whoever wrote said speech decided to pull a section of it pretty much 1 to 1 from Michelle Obama's speech a few years ago.
In the strangest twist of fate out there, the RNC Communications Director hopped in during an interview citing a quote from Twilight Sparkle to show that similarities in speeches happen all the time. You can't make this stuff up.
The story is currently making waves over on Twitter, and as I mentioned above, on the top of major news publications around the world. Is the world ready for a Princess Twilight to take over?
Thanks to Jeffrey, Twilight, Dreamland, and the swarms of others that sent it!
Giant plushies seem to be the new norm! I remember when the first life-size plushie came out (a Rainbow Dash) and how many several thousand dollars it went for at the time. So many interesting memories from this fandom.
Plushies are here once again guys! Get them after the break.

Spotlight Music: The Spectacle (Sonic Rainboom Mix) / Party Of Two (Homage McGee Remix) / Sunshine And Celery Stalks (KD & Xavi Rmx)by Sethisto
I really hope we get a real extended The Spectacle remix some day. It feels like that song cuts off way too quick.
Until then, we have remixers! Get that in the first slot, and two remixes of fandom tracks to follow it. Go get them below!
1.) The Spectacle (Sonic Rainboom Mix) (Remix - Psytrance)
2.) Homage McGee - Party Of Two (Remix - Chiptune)
3.) iblank2apples - I've Been Dreaming Of Sunshine And Celery Stalks (KD & Xavi Rmx) (Remix - Future House)
Candy Heart knew she wasn’t a normal pony. Between her unmatched intellect and unshakable ambition, she knew she was destined for greatness. She was destined to be the best, and once the incantation was complete she truly would be: everything holding her back, from loneliness to regret to remorse, would be gone. She’d be free, and she’d be unstoppable.
Except that isn’t what happened.
Instead, two more ponies came into being. This is their story.

Hasbro has uploaded their 3rd installment of the "Flurry Heart's Heartfelt Scrapbook" series, covering all things alicorns this time. Consider me impressed! It's like we have The Hub back with their amazing promos.
And joining that, in the background of one of the scenes was a picture with a possible new pony in it. I'll include it as a link below the break so I don't have to spoiler this post.
Go get that and the video below!
