My Little Pony Facebook page unveils a San Diego Comic Con exclusive Friendship is Magic poster

Collectors and fans, get ready to drool! In addition to the convention exclusive pony, the Hasbro booth at the SDCC will also have this limited edition poster:

I have a feeling these are going to be pretty pricey on eBay after the event…

As an added bonus, it makes a pretty sweet desktop background or wallpaper! ;-)

a rant about My Little Pony names from a gay dad (via @mommywithapenis)

OK so some of this is a little adult but I figured my fellow pony fans would appreciate this. From the Mommy With a Penis blog. Younger fans, don’t read it, OK?

Lately my daughter is gaga obsessed with My Little Pony. For you neophytes, there isn’t just one little pony like the singular title offers. There are many. And they are all girl ponies, not a steed in the stable. Actually, there are no stables. Come to think of it, they are very non horselike, these ponies. They are the color of fruit sherbet and are always prepping for some gala at Celebration Castle. Maxie has only three of their books and in each of them a major festivity is taking place. One book is about a golden egg hunt, another is about a royal costume party, and the last is the ultimate tea party.

I bring up the ponies because along with their lives of party throwing leisure, they have outlandish names. I can barely turn a page of the book without Maxie pointing to each pony and labeling them. Crazy insidious names like Sunny Daze, Twinkle Twirl, Pinky Pie (which sound like the newest designer drugs) are all part of this equine fantasy. And each pony has a tattoo on her haunch. Sparkleworks has a mini fireworks display, Meadowbrook a dragonfly, Wisteria a sprig of wisteria, etc. My favorite pony has four leaf clovers on her haunch…why Serendipity, of course.

Last night, while I was reading Pony Party, for the second time, I had this sudden image. A grouchy group of elderly people sitting around a table, smoking menthols, hopped up on pain killers, thinking up all these crazy ass pony names.

OLD FART #1: I like Minty.

OLD FART #2: Minty? What the hell kind of name is Minty?

OLD FART #1: My Ben Gay is minty. And I like Ben Gay.

OLD FART #2: Fine. I’ll let you have Minty, as idiotic as that sounds, if you let me call a pony Dazzle Surprise.

OLD FART #1: Sound like a big sissy to me, but okay. Let’s shake on it.

OLD FART #2: Can’t reach across the table. Just put your dentures back in and call it a deal.

And I bet I’m not far off on how the My Little Pony names are created. And it’s probably similar with the name generators dudes. Might not be the same group of people. Instead of old farts, the name generators might be just out of college pimply, but it’s the same concept. Name by committee.

Comic Con 2009 My Little Pony Mentions

ONE FOR THE GIRLS: Bonnie Zacherle, one of the original ‘My Little Pony’ designers, signs an autograph and draws a pony for a youngster during an appearance at Hasbro’s booth. [SOURCE]

One audience member asked [Todd] McFarlane if he could draw a “My Little Pony” sketch for his wife, as several other Image creators – including Kirkman – have already contributed. “I might be able to do it, but you must realize that Todd’s ‘My Little Pony’ is slightly different than everybody else’s,” he joked. “Dark form with the big thorns coming in, then you take that big stretchy tail and strangle people… ‘My Little Pony,’ this!” [SOURCE]

Meanwhile, over in Villainville, Dr. Doom and the Lethal Legion are plotting to take over the world. To give you an idea of what kinds of villainy we’re dealing with, they did a special cast reading at the convention. It’s plot: Dr. Doom’s quest to acquire an exclusive My Little Pony collectible. The series kicks off with a four-episode marathon on Cartoon Network September 19, and I’m strangely very excited about it. [SOURCE] and [SOURCE]

Keep cool this summer with a My Little Pony ceiling fan!

In the same vein as the My Little Pony corsets, another intrepid crafter is offering you the chance to stay cool this summer in MLP style.

Your very own My Little Pony ceiling fan is within your reach! (To see additional images and larger photos, click the image below.)

Is a whole fan a little too much for you? No problem! Ponyville ponies easily convert to fan pulls with a little crafting. Or, if you don’t feel like making that modification yourself, several eBay sellers are selling them ready made.

I personally am holding out for the MLP themed air conditioners that I am confident will come along next. ;-)
