Jesus damn.

Joking aside, yeah, these are promoting some comic line called "Guardians of Harmony"

Nice looking toys.
The comic line... look, considering the overall quality of the comic for the last couple of years, I have not very high hopes.
In fact, if the first name on the project is "Whitley", I suggest we burn the comics before they hit shelves.

Aww, poor Changeling...

@Maniak: On the other hand, if we did burn them, we might lost some bits of unintentional comedy. After all, at least the Siege arc gave us the image of King Sombra wide-eyed as if he was on crack.

But yeah, it's probably gonna suck in all likelihood, sadly.

From what I heard, a problem of the comics is that all their writers don't seem to be on the same "page" so to speak. That, and Whitley. If this line is going to have a central team of writers with a plan, hey, it might actually be readable.

Looking at the clip and that I'm not a 100% knowledgable on the series, but I'm guessing huge wings are not normal. So it would be akin to a birth defect, right?

what I dislike about the "Flurry Hearts" drama some bronies have stirred up is, that some react as if they did not see that coming.
What did they expect the baby to be, when the mother is an alicorn?
Granted, the wings are big. But even the "she will accidentally throw things down with those things" gag has goten older faster than anything else.

Frankly, just put the character in and be done with it. Season 6 = final season.
Please.

Wait a minute. Someone is going to have to clear this up for me because I am not at all well-versed in My Little Pony mythology, but didn't Twilight have to go through some convoluted magical ritual to become an alicorn? I thought turning into an alicorn was essentially the MLP universe equivalent of going Super Saiyan. If they're another "race" of ponies that are born naturally, then why are there less than half a dozen of them in existence?

From what I know Cadance was born a pegasus and became a princess after she proved her worth by saving a village from some evil sorceress. Since Celestia and Luna's origins were never properly explained (aside of some mention in a book or something), I imagine is a matter of none of them having bumped uglies with the opposite sex without protection before.

Can we just say how it is:

Meghan McCarthy:
Blablabla, we had not a plan when we made the alicorn shit up, blablabla, Hasbro wants to make money and has no plans, blablabla, Larson gets all the blame, blablablabla we deliver.
Now buy the toys and watch EqG4: Larping in the Everfree.

Seriously though, it is like Dashguy said. Cadance "backstory" from some kids book I think one of the now current writers once did said something about her being born a pegasus who then trascended and Luna and Celestia, god knows.
Though it gets "worse". Rumors have come up that some other merchandise backstory book is in development that indicates that alicorns are actually a race.
So, we may end up with even more super special ponies.
I am not gonna lie, kind of disappointed that alicorns become now just some special born ponies and whatsoever, but frankly, I would be more "angry" if all off sudden we end up with a hopscotch dancing three horned freak voiced by an autistic VA.

Season 5 was pretty good overall. I'd give it MAYBE two more seasons.

*raises an eyebrow*

Okay.
They actually try to sell this GoH thing as a more "action" toy based thing.
I give kudos to them. And yet it feels a bit ridiculous.
Not necessarily eye roll inducing ridiculous, but Wonderbolts action figures?
Also, they want to produce comics to promote those toys?
Well then Insert "Secret Wars" jke here.

EDIT: Saw a few more infos about these toys, which are shown at a toy fair currently.
They seem to really try to milk quite a bit out of it this year it seems.
Mini chibi figurines, "action" toys, EqG4 (whose title almost sounds like the shit I made up as a joke), blind bag mini figurine sets? Not necessarily complaining about it, is just weird to see so much stuff that I would see normally sold on some anime convention for other shows NOW, almost six years down the line, hitting the shelves.
What is next? official, show accurate plushies?

Hey, I don't plan on buying any of the toys nor have I in the past, but I'm all for Hasbro putting more effort in the design of their toys for the lil'uns.

Especially after seeing these monstrosities.

Wonderbolts on the front lines? Spike a knight? Am I the only one getting a certain "Starfleet" vibe here?

*holds a gun to your head*
bad choice of words here, nigger.

Edit: You know, this toy thing brings something up though: Have they actually ever tried to put in the toys in the show as much as some did back in the 90s?
I know EqG was only made for the Monster High knock ff dolls and I have seen god knows what in the commercial. Not to forget the alicorn twilight thing and the Canterlot Wedding.
But compared to other franchises, I got the impression MLP was so far more tame with putting in stuff to easily make toys out in the show or vice versa.
For that GoH thing I begin to wonder if they do not decide to make one episode that is sort of a fuck it, making fun of fanwork and giving an over the top "epic" version of what the fans always wanted, just to promote this stuff.

Don't you be hatin' on my black face, playah!

Now seriously, while MLP: FiM may not be as "toytastic" as other shows, it is not above making nods to the fandom (that Godforsaken 100th episode). As for he GoH thing, well, I've come across too many stories where the author turns Spike, or other male characters, into an ultra-badass who makes the Mane Six look like chumps, so I guess I'm kind of wary. But if they play it for laughs, I guess it would be okay.

If such an episode to promote GoH toys existed, I would also imagine it more being like the CMC deciding to do a comic based on how awesome the mane 6 are and ending up creating an over the top, Avengers-esque fan story where Twilight goes Super saiyan on Chrysalis while Spike turns into a behemoth. Also, I know the shit you have seen. I was there, mocking at your side from time to time, remember? But at the same time I think the writers are self aware enough to not go THAT rouute if they did it.
Well, except of course they decided to let Ted Anderson, Jeremy Whitley or the asshat who did "What about Discord" write such an episode.
