For anyone looking forward to Brony-Fair in Germany this year, it looks like we have a bit of bad news. A post up over on their website has revealed that the event this year has been cancelled. The people running it are unfortunately finding it difficult to multi-task the convention with their normal full-time jobs this time, and don't want to run an event that isn't up to it's usual standards.
Refunds will start shortly for anyone that has already bought a ticket, and they are offering a 5€ discount on GalaCon tickets to make up for it.
They don't plan on completely closing their doors. expect some possible good news for 2018!
Thanks to Richard for the heads up.
BronyCon, the largest pony convention in the fandom has a big announcement tonight. It's been floating around the net for the past day or two that this change was in the works but now we have official confirmation that BronyCon will be adding a small amount of non-pony programming to this year's event.
Check on after the break for their full press release and the details they put on their blog.
It turns out the post over on the NIA: Path of Light patreon was a bit premature. While the programmer did decide to jump ship and take some of the IndieGOGO money with him, a smaller team is still looking to get this thing done, albeit a bit slower. The reason? A literal civil war happening right within the project leaders country.
The game will be reformated as a point and click adventure under the name "Path of Planes" once things stabilize a bit better. You can find updates on this over here.
I know I've posted a million galaxy ponies up here lately, but I can't resist! Just look how majestic that mare is! I'd worship that CREATOR OF WORLDS!
Get a bunch of art below! It's really good today.

Hasbro has released their Q4/Full Year report today with details on all their business dealings including MLP. While we were hoping for some extra special news regarding season 7 or the movie all we ended up getting were business numbers.
The big takeaways concerning us is that revenue for Hasbro increased by 13% for the year, bringing the company to a robust $5 billion in revenue, the first time in the company's history. As for MLP, sales were down in the domestic market, but saw an increase internationally where they saw a 3% increase in Franchise Brand revenues that include growth in MLP, Magic: The Gathering, Play-Doh, and NERF.
So not too much to report, but we speculate we'll see something new at the New York Toy Fair coming up on the 18th and lasting through the 21st of this month. Stay tuned information coming out of that!
Thanks to Twilight Sparkle for sending it in!
We've seen a lot of amazing stuff teased over the years from random pony companies, and quite a bit has been cancelled. It seems "Brony" is a pretty difficult fanbase to market to, with a bunch of demand for things that Hasbro hasn't a clue of.
I'm guessing they scan around our neck of the woods sometimes based on how quickly any episode link is immediately taken down here in EQDland. Maybe we can throw them ideas that we can throw our money at?
What is your dream piece of pony merchandise? Do you want that life size show accurate Luna plushie finally? Or an item they haven't even had variants of yet?
The 6th installment in the pony simulator series has been released, covering Derpy Hooves in this one! Toss her a hoofbump, play games, dress her in silly accessories, and eventually make her comfortable enough for a hug! It's not creepy cause it's Derpy.
Go play over here!

That's actually a clever idea Twilight! Even though it might not be very princess-like, but you made it work!
Comics guys, get them after the break.
Ahh the Rainbow Factory. A fanon I typically avoid like the plague outside of the song. These guys are hoping to remove the gore aspect entirely and go more for a pure horror aspect instead, which is a plus in my book! The animation skill here is impressive to say the least! Check out their teaser down below. They are also recruiting vector artists and animators, who can apply over here.
Warning: Don't expect a happy ending here, even if there isn't any gore.
SEAPonyCon has a little news today as they announced a 10% off sale for their basic tickets! It's only limited to 200 tickets so get yours while you can.
Get the full details after the break!
Another year another Super Bowl. It's a shame ponies didn't pop up again, but that one moment was pretty amazing all on its own, right?
Morning guys! Welcome to another week!
