The MLP Comics have been hugely successful for IDW Comics – and as a result, they’re releasing yet another special edition for us moneybag Bronies. The ‘Colour Me!’ Treasury Edition includes an oversized, non-colored version of ‘the entire first first issue’, which is the first 4 comics by Katie Cook and Andy Price. It also includes each front cover for all four editions – 48 in total. So if you’re into crayons and collectivism, this could be for you. It’s due for release on 12th June, and should be in all good comic book shops around that time – check the listing over on Previews World.
To those of you who will be at Cutie Mark Con, they have released a schedule for everyone to view. To those who would like a direct link to the document detailing it, go here. To those who want to read the post that the convention staff did introducing it, that’s here. In the words of the convention heads themselves: “GET HYPE!”
To those who want to hear what “Celebrity, Sex, Fashion for Women. Without Airbrushing.” have to say on the upcoming movie, head on to Jezebel’s article on the implications for women concerning Equestria Girls. I’m not sure who the author is, but she said “Equestrian Girls” for the movie name, then called the purple human “Polly Sparkle,” so her credibility is kinda wavering at this point. She also seems to like horses.
EDIT: At the behest of Four String, I delved into the Polly Pocket reference the author was probably going for. I watched portions of the CGI Polly Pocket as well as the animated PollyWorld. Polly and Twilight have very little personality similarities, save that they find friends a good thing.
Looks like we have a new PR for those overseas operations! Hasbro has confirmed new operations with company Bite and ended over a decade of work with previous company Mason Williams. They’re already reporting improvement on their sales, so we can expect some pretty great things pony-related in the near future. Check out the article here.
Barrington Books, the premier bookstore in Barrington, Rhode Island, is going to be hosting a My Little Pony book reading in honor of Children’s Book Week 2013. Mary Jane Begin, author and illustrator of My Little Pony: Under The Sparkling Sea will be reading her new book to a crowd of fans as well as doing an MLP drawing demonstration for the kids present. Sounds like a fun time to be had by all, doesn’t it?
Has anyone ever noticed that both of Lee Tockar’s characters are obsessed with mustaches?
Looks like Sweet Apple Acres Con has Lee Tockar slated as their next talent for the awesome convention coming up! He does the voice acting for Snips and Steven Magnet. More details after the break!
Looks like Entertainment Weekly is jumping on the Equestria Girls bandwagon as well! They’ve released a little article here and are also the first site to post the official poster (seen above) for the movie. How, uh… nervousiting. We so just went there.
Looks like the world’s biggest pony convention will be having the voice of Spike and Mayor Mare included! Cathy Weseluck has been in the voice talent industry for quite a while now; her list of contributions is quite admirable, and a couple of them are mentioned by BronyCon after the break.

I’m alive! Sorry for releasing this a bit late; it was saved on the wrong computer, and I’d forgotten to send it to my e-mail account in a timely manner. Not to worry, I am still hard at work! -Scoota
Being noticed. Some people do crazy things to become noticed by others, sometimes for centuries, other times for a brief few moments of glory. It is a basic instinct to want to have our own existences acknowledged by other human beings, and many of us will do everything within our power to have even a few brief moments of limelight.
Wondering if the above picture is what the Mane 6 are actually going to look like in the new Equestria Girls movie? Well, the animation in the trailer located here looks just a little different.
