True dat. I wasn't thinking "NO! THE YOUTUBE VIDEOS!" More like "YAY! BOX SETS N' SHIT!"
Imagine what sort of stuff could be in the box set? The dvd to come already has some serious goodies to make any brony happy and on top of that the box set will have even more.

Pinkie Pie.

Pinkie Pie.
She breaks the fourth wall so much that it's only a matter of time.

He's like, this guy, you know?

*has mental image of pinky pie jumping out of random places*

Yeah, nightmare fuel. Got it.

As for converts, I've only converted two, but it was my girlfriend and her son, so it's a family thing. Like the Manson family, but more colorful (and twenty percent cooler, of course).

I find my own situation amusing.

I'm alright if people see my avatar here, see that I'm on this thread , listen to the pony music that I'm playing, see the fan videos and memes, even the shirts. But GOD FORBID that they see me watching the show.

Pshht, I've been keeping track of my conversions. I'm up to 46: 16 IRL and 30 over the internet/Skype, etc.

You are a god Sir and I shall murder love and tolerate thousands in your name!

Soft. I made it very apparent to everyone who knows me IRL and on forums and facebook that I watch this show. Not to obnoxious levels or anything, but I'm certainly not hiding it at all.

My mother knows it. We were watching tv at my parents place when the commercial for the Princess Celestia toy came on. I made a comment to the tune of "Why the hell is it pink?" to which she responded that thats what little girls like.
I told her grown men watch the show too, and when she asked me if I were one of them I said yes.

There is no deal made with Bronies. They have done nothing to market to us at all. No matter how much money we put down on little girl pony junk, all that tells them is that their little girl pony junk is doing well. They have to make the first move to market to us, because that's the only way we'll ever know that they will.
Is that completely true? There's that "Equestria Girls" song which makes a reference to us, plus Derpy Hooves staying derp eyed. I suppose it's not marketing in the sense that "here's a commercial trying to sell MLP shit to men", but it's not like Hasbro has been completely silent either.

I'd count that as recognizing us, but I wouldn't consider it marketing to us. They need to make something for us to buy first.

Just imagine for a moment:

What if the box set came with your own live mini pony? One of your choosing?

"Bah! These real-life ponies look nothing like the ones in the show! I'm taking it back!"

If it came with a figurine that didn't suck I would be all over that!

Unfortunately, that would probably be uttered by frustrated bronies everywhere. These ponies couldn't exist in 3D and retain what they look like at all angles.

But Hasbro could at least fix the hair on Fluttershy for fuck's sake.

The CMC really do grow on you. I didn't like them at first, but I'm currently realizing how epic that hair metal performance they did really is! It was awesomely terrible!

Cupcakes is the blight upon my little pony.
Don't let it ruin it for you.

^Damnit, no. No Rainbow Factory, we don't want to drive him away. :V

My mom is the only one in my family that knows it. Basically because my dad most likely thinks I`m gay because, well, a long story short, I said that he couldn't assume someone was gay just by how they act and talk. And I really don't want him to think he has fuel for his theory.
As for my brother, I`m just scared that he would start liking it too. He ruins everything for me. Everything I`ve gotten him into, I most likely hate now because of him.

Valid point. If Hasbro could think of something I'd want, I'd buy it. I refuse to stoop to buying poorly made toys for young girls though.

I'm not sorry, but if Rainbow factory scared anyone in any way, that person is a complete pussy. It wasn't even remotely gory or disturbing or anything, it fucking sucked.

Bah
I can't understand the words (It that where the supposed disturbing part lies?).

I thought the song, except for the singing, was supposed to be good until I read about it later. That's composer Daniel Ingram for you.

I does what I says on the box.
Re: What is with all of this "My little pony" stuff? (The unofficial official MLP Thr

Since the show is about ponies of various kinds, does that mean Spike is like the Token Minority Guy?
