Discussion

Okay, wow. A lot of information came up at the New York Toy Fair. More than I think any of us expected. So Alca7raz and Nemesis went through it! Plus, speculation. Granted, this means a lot of potential SPOILERS, so bail if you don’t want to hear them.

To start off, they talk about the Friendship Games movie (that’s finally been officially confirmed). Some information was surprising, but other info, not so much. They try to interpret what they got as best they could. Some of their conclusions may surprise you.

They also have season 5 stuff to talk about. It’s mostly concerning the premiere, but they do now have some theories about the rest of the season. Nemesis even has a few crazier ones! Plus, some talk about the upcoming FiM movie and what 2016 might have!

Plus, useful links we used:
