A few of our newspony friends are reporting on a fine spot by blog ‘All About MLP Merch‘, who have posted slides from a presentation made at Hasbro’s Australia arm last September which included information about Rainbow Rocks – 1 month before it became public. There’s some early artwork shown there, as well as information about what (or who) to expect. If you’re cool with spoilers, check out their post – there’s other interesting slides on there about the MLP brand and Rainbow Power.
BronyExpo over in Alberta has announced its third VA guest of honor – the voices of Donut Joe, Garble the Dragon, Prince Blueblood and, probably most importantly, Flash Sentry in Equestria Girls, Vincent Tong!
Vincent is also known for a variety of his other roles voice acting, including Yatsuda from Death Note, and will join Andrea Libman and Michael Daingerfield at the West Edmonton convention this July. You can see him in the guest list over on the BronyExpo website, and you can grab your pass for the event on their IndieGogo page.
According to the post, picture is very related. We brought this into the world, guys.
Ready for another Equestria Girls movie? Well, it’s in the works! According to this post on MLP Forums, idlemichael managed to get himself to London Toy Fair, learning the inside scoop on some upcoming toy lines and, yes, the inevitable sequel movie to the critically claimed first movie. Are our bodies ready for another Equestria Girls? We hope so! Just head to the link to find out everything we’ve got on the rumored upcoming movie.
Ready for a good laugh? User Heretick-Tock on MLP Forums knew that! He thought up male human versions of the Mane Six and gave very convincing arguments as to why he picked these six specific people. Head over here to see the full roster of Equestria Guys.
Apparently, some of the points made in this article were enough that they got yelled at on Facebook for a related post, so now there’s a disclaimer at the top for guys who like MLP and are non-pervy. For the rest of the guys, though–the r34 artists and other “unsavory” people by society’s standards–you better watch out. The article does make some good points, even going so far as to link to a NSFW tumblr, but also jumps onto the bandwagon with the claim of Equestria Girls being “sexualized.” The comparison at the bottom with Hugh Hefner is actually pretty entertaining and does make a point, except that the picture she chose is one of those that bronies in general don’t like or find very appealing, if the community discussion boards have anything to say about it (plus, I can’t really envision the Hef with anthro).
You all know who this guy is, don’t you? The Nostalgia Critic! This was posted on a website that he is a part of, but written by another poster on the site, known as DigiRanma. Apparently, this brave soul has previously reviewed Bratz; he seems to find little difference between that nightmare and this latest movie for little girls. Ah well, you can’t win everyone over.
I’m not going to say he doesn’t have valid points; he obviously does. Equestria Girls wasn’t the amazing movie it could have been… were a miracle to occur. Read up on his entire critique of the movie here.
It’s okay, guys. I get the feeling we’re almost done with Equestria Girls reviews. These strange pony-looking… creatures will return to Equestria, where they belong, and be all season 4 and stuff.
On the review menu for today, we have a quite enjoyable review of Equestria Girls from geek news blog Inside Pulse. Not only do they review it, they also provide us with Youtube videos of a member of the target audience reviewing the movie from the theater as well as the Blu-Ray release. Read up on it here! See, little girls like it, so it’s okay for us to like it too… right?
We don’t always post humans, but when we do, it ends up being the humans from that Equestria Girls song thing.
Lez Get Real seems to have picked up on the video that’s sweeping the internet, and, lo and behold, it’s not a negative review! Check it out over here; it’s not exactly kind words, merely informative… which is still better than this humble narrator expected.
A B-? How dare he give a mere B- to Equestria Girls! What happened to the days of unfair and biased grading?
A.V. Club has given a surprisingly insightful and decidedly positive spin on Equestria Girls as a whole. It’s not simply informative, nor does it attack Hasbro for having skinny characters; it describes the positives of the movie and how they pertain to the world we live in. Eloquently stated, in my opinion. Read up on it here!
Ready for the TV premiere today? Even if you’re not, then Broadway World is there to remind you that it’s happening all the same! But seriously, it’s a very unbiased article, simply making sure that its readers are aware that this movie is about to premiere for the world to see. Read up on it here.
So, ready for round… what is it, four or five? The Daily Oat already cashed in their Equestria Girls review coupon months ago.
