EQLA – The Editorial
My thoughts were filled with hopes that this visit to Equestria LA would be as good as last year. When I left, I couldn’t imagine how any convention could beat what I just experienced. It was an amazing weekend, filled with great panels, new friends, and the general badassery that is the pony community. Some of the best times I had in general are conventions, and this is definitely no exceptions. I’d really recommend anyone go to a pony con just for the amazingly humble experience that is us!
I had some awesome interviews, not with the show staff nor community guests, but with the vendors, I felt like they are a greatly under appreciated part of the con scene, and I want to shed some light on what it is like to make your way as a vendor.

Equestria Daily reports that Build-A-Bear’s image archives now have product images for alicorn Twilight and Spike.
Twilight looks to be about the same size as Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie and can be expected to be a similar price. She has shiny wings and horn, much like the fabric used on Rainbow’s wings, along with Luna/Cadance-shaped wings like she has in the show.
The image of Spike is much smaller; he might be a “mini furry friend,” a smaller plush animal generally under $10. He could also be sized differently and be a full-sized plush like everyone else, which would lead him to not be in scale but be much more cuddleable.
BABW staff have reported that these would be the next toys, with these images confirming it. Release dates, prices, accessories and other info is currently unknown.
Hot Topic Variant
The results are in. The My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comics are still IDW Publishing’s top selling comics through the month of April. In addition both the main series and the micro-series landed in the Top 100 for the third month in a row.

Tinrobo on the MLP Arena found this girl on Taobao.
Compare to the prototype we saw on Taobao two years ago.
The cutie mark has been simplified, the eyes have been changed pink and are one color, the body color has been tweaked to be more blue and the white of the hair has been removed.
It’s possible that this is simply a test pony, but the new cutie mark design is an interesting find.
Minty was a popular character during G3. A pony who collected socks and was rereleased often during Christmas, she was dropped when Hasbro whittled the characters down to the core 7. Bringing her back for G4 would be a huge nod towards fans of older gens.
Minty has so far had a blind bag, but otherwise have been absent in G4.
So for those of you excited for this fall’s releases, here’s the pamphlet of (most) of it! I’ll go through each item and note what we know so far. Lots of info, so jump under the cut. Read more →
