• MLP-MSP is Returning For One More Year, and They're Dragging Andrea Libman, M. A. Larson, and Scope Out to Join in on the Fun!

    Looks like BronyCon isn't the only ones going out with a bang this summer! MLP-MSP is also holding their final convention in June so if you've been meaning to visit now is the chance!

    Check on after the break for all the information plus some friends they have dragged along with them.

    First off, if you missed the announcement at Ponyville Ciderfest 2018 Closing Ceremonies - yes, MLP-MSP is coming back for one more year. Yes, really. Is this odd? Maybe. Is it a good idea? Who knows. Will it be a fun time, and the fitting send-off that this beloved convention never got? Absolutely.

    MLP-MSP F (the F stands for both Four and Final) will take place this June 14-16, 2019 to the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis.

    The event is being run by the organizers of Ponyville Ciderfest and Whinny City Pony Con, and will feature as much of what made the previous three events special as possible. We've been super busy with WCPC19 (hence this very late submission to EQD) but we're full steam on MLP-MSP F now. Expect announcements and news to be frequent from now until con.

    Minnesota is pretty famous. And we’re not just boasting. Maybe. But we just got even more famous with this little bit of news. We’re not sure if you’re ready for the awesomeness of this, so we’ll give you a minute to prepare yourselves.

    Sitting down? That's nice. Anyway... We are truly excited to welcome Andrea Libman and M. A. Larson back for the final MLP-MSP!

    Andrea’s talents seem to be nigh limitless—from appearances on film and television (The X-Files, Little Women, Highlander), anime (Gundam 00, Maison Ikkoku) and voice acting (Barbie, Dinosaur Train, DuckTales)—and she’s done some pastel horse voices too, gracing our Saturday mornings as Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy.  We’ve heard she a pretty good piano player too…

    Then we got this Larson guy.  Yeah, he gave Twilight wings, but we’re not talking about that anymore – we need to give our hometown boy some serious street cred.  The Burnsville native has been an episode writer for the show—and he’s done some other things on the side; Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, Gravity Falls, and My Gym Partner’s a Monkey.  When he got bored with that, he went and wrote a couple of books before moving to be the head writer of Lauren Faust’s upcoming show DC Super Hero Girls.

    We know what you're thinking: "How many mountains of cash did MLP-MSP have to pay to secure the one and only Scope as a Community Guest? How many smoothies were made, Tempest plushies were commissioned, and Klingon Birds of Prey were offered as tribute?" Or, perhaps you're just thinking: "...who?"

    Well, we can't tell you the answers to the first questions. But as far as who Scope is, why he's the just the scowliest grumpnugget on this side of the globe. Certified as the most horsefamous brony, and subject of the massively successful guerrilla #scopeforcommunityguest2019 campaign, this lovable sook (thanks Bill Newton) will be joining us at MLP-MSP F, complete with a panel simply called >:/ where he will probably just scowl at everyone for an hour or something. We're not really sure, but it will be great. Probably. Maybe. Anyways...

    If you want to meet Andrea, Mitch, and Scope, along with all the rest of the guests we're going to announce, there’s plenty of ways to make that happen! Several types of special badges are available now, including multiple Patron and Sponsor Badge options. Patron and Sponsor badges provide a wide range of perks, including tickets to our VIP Cocktail Hour, exclusive prints and swag, autograph line priority, and more!
