Discussion

To kick off the discussions, Alca7raz bought several toys! What a dork. Anyway, they include some Guardians of Harmony figures, and some Funko Mystery Minis. Oh, and Nemesis bought a Shapeways figure. Were they worth the purchase?

After that, they go back to Legend of Everfree! Yes, that movie again. They weren’t quite done the first time around. More about Gloriosa, what they wished happened, and theories about why Timber was met with a resounding “meh.” They also use the movie as a springboard into the future of Equestria Girls, and what they want from it. Is there anything you want to add? Tell us!
