These My Little Pony Plushies Will Watch Season 4 With Us In Manly Splendor
We are counting down the days, the anticipation building, our just-can’t-waitness growing with each passing day. Sometimes we find ourselves just staring out the window instead of working, daydreaming about what we’ll get.
Christmas? Screw that, we’re talking about the season 4 premiere of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, set for November 23. Until the new episodes start playing, we have to make do with fan-made stuff like that “Friendship is Manly” video up there, which, brilliant though it is, is not enough. We need Pony in our lives, you see. And new Pony is better than reruns on Netflix. Unless they screw it up and TOTALLY RUIN THE SERIES FOREVER. (Friendship may be magic, but Fandom is Drama.) And to think, a year ago we were being all ironic about these little marshmallow horses…and now, they take up a surprising amount of our brainspace. No worries, it would have just been frittered away on anime anyway.
Now, should you be in the market for MLP plushies for the Brony in your life (and you have one, oh yes you do, whether you know it or not), you should be aware that these Think Geek plushies are not “show-accurate” — most notably, like Hasbro’s plastic toys, these have the characters’ “cutie marks” on only one flank, which makes the 4DE models clear winners. This is something your hardcore collector loon may actually complain about, not that we would ever stoop to such nitpicking. (But really, would it be that hard to get it right?) Even so, these are far better than the ribbon-maned plushies carried by most toy stores, and would be a fine addition to any Brony’s home, which you never want to visit, ever.
Now, if somebody would just make a half decent Scootaloo… (please… we need help.)
