Discussion

To start off discussion stuff, Alca7raz and Nemesis have two comics to review! First, it’s Friends Forever #37. It’s about Trixie and Rarity. A strange combo, but does it work? Then it’s Friendship is Magic #51, the beginning of a new story arc! And well, so far it’s making up for the recent comics.

After that, it’s all about New York Toy Fair! That happened recently. And it brought us a ton of news! News for the movie, Equestria Girls, and season 7. And even more beyond that! It’s also filled with spoilers! So if you really don’t want to know… you probably shouldn’t listen from 18:05-50:43. But you should still be excited!

Also, here are some helpful links to the stuff we talked about:
