Princess Sparkle, The O. C.’s only My Little Pony special guest star

While there have been jokes about My Little Pony on a variety of shows, there’s been no MLP cameo more prominent than Princess Sparkle‘s turn on the television show The O. C.

Featured in three episodes over seasons 1 and 2, Princess Sparkle was not just seen in the background but was a plot point in her appearances. (The O. C. Wiki can give you a better overview of the episodes she starred in if you care deeply about how she related to the plot.)

But what did this high profile TV cameo do to the collectability of this member of G1 royalty? Princess Ponies were already pretty collectible to begin with and Princess Sparkle’s suddenly stardom rocketed her value up higher than it had ever been before as fans of the television show started competing with collectors for this vintage pony star. At one point she was selling for over $100 dollars!

As The O. C. has been off the air for several years now, Princess Sparkle’s value has gone down from the wild highs it once reached in the 2000’s but she is still one of the higher value Princess Ponies thanks to her brief stint with TV stardom. But now that the market has cooled, you can usually snag one at a more normal price if you’re willing to wait for it.

Where you lucky enough to snag your Princess Sparkle before the great inflation? What’s your favorite MLP television cameo? Do you totally still ship her with Captain Oats?

2012 Convention & SDCC Exclusive My Little Pony is (gasp) NOT named Derpy

My Little Pony fans, especially fans of Friendship is Magic, went wild when they saw 2012’s convention exclusive pony. Attendees of the My Little Pony Fair Collector’s Convention and the San Diego Comic Convention (also referred to as SDCC or just Comic Con), got an exclusive chance to snag this pony:

The wonky eyes. The bubble cutie mark. The muffins. Surely this is the character FiM fans have dubbed Derpy Hooves (sometimes known as Ditzy Doo)?

While fans of the show  may know her as Derpy in their hearts, this pony is still controversial and Hasbro and the Hub both seem to want distance from the fan given name. As a result, this 2012 exclusive pony, like many of the exclusive ponies of the past, is officially unnamed. Will she remain nameless for all time or will Hasbro eventually settle on an official name for this brony favorite?

For now, she’s joined the ranks of ponies officially named one thing, but commonly called another by collectors.

Did you manage to snag your very own Derpy, er, I mean, 2012 Convention Exclusive My Little Pony this year? If you haven’t snagged one yet, there are plenty up for grabs already on eBay.

My Little Pony’s Pinkie Pie made her feature film debut in Transformers (2007)

There hasn’t been a My Little Pony feature film since 1986’s creatively titled My Little Pony: The Movie, but one popular pink pony managed to sneak her way into the multiplexes since then in a brief cameo in 2007’s Transformers.

In the Micheal Bay blockbuster, a little girl carrying a Pinkie Pie plushie mistakes the Transformer Ironhide for the tooth fairy. As both Transformers and My Little Pony are Hasbro properties, the cameo was not only cute but also probably made someone in corporate use the phrase “brand synergy.”

But what you may not realize is that My Little Pony and Transformers have met more than once. The Transformers wiki has a breakdown of all the My Little Pony/Transformers crossovers since the inception of both toylines here.

Personally, I remember seeing the Transformers trailer for the first time in theatres and cackling like a crazy person when Pinkie Pie showed up on screen because it was just too perfect. What did you think of the pink wonder’s feature film debut? And, more importantly, do you think we’ll ever get another My Little Pony feature film?
