Friendship is magic. Friendship is also very popular apparently.

Variety reports that Hasbro is moving forward with a My Little Pony movie for a 2017 release. The movie will be produced through Allspark Pictures, and Hasbro will finance it in house. They have Joe Ballarini on board as the writer and Meghan McCarthy as co-executive producer. McCarthy works on the current animated show and Equestria Girls.

The news doesn’t state whether the film is based on the Friendship is Magic incarnation of the story, but it’s likely given the success of the animated series.

Funko’s plan to siphon all the money from your wallet has hit the collectible Pocket Pop! phase.

Y’know those super kawaii Pop! keychains? These collectible tins of Pop!s are similar in that they are small enough to put in your pocket.

Funko will begin releasing Pocket Pop! Tins this December beginning with the Frozen Pocket Pop! Tin.

Then, in January, we’ll get DC Comics (Batman, Harley Quinn, and The Joker), Game of Thrones (Dany, Jon Snow, and Tyrion), My Little Pony (Rainbow Dash, Derpy, and Discord), and The Walking Dead (Rick Grimes, Daryl Dixon, and Teddy Bear Walker).

You can check out more pictures after the break.

Cthulhu pony 1

Sometimes a toy so cool that you can’t forget it after it crosses your path, and Maddie the pony is such a figure. The adorable yet weird Cthulhu-inspired pony by Bigshot Toyworks now has a Kickstarter campaign, and they’re close to hitting the halfway mark. The first goal is to get Maddie produced, but if fundraising is successful, they want to create a whole collection called the Four Horsies of the ‘Pocalypse. The entire line-up is creepy and creative, and I really want them all on my shelves.

We have to get Maddie made first though! It’s $60 to pre-order the pony through the Kickstarter project, and there are plenty of other backer levels to get additional Maddie goodies like stickers and t-shirts.

See the rest of the Four Horsies of the ‘Pocalypse and some other Kickstarter rewards after the break.

DeviantArtist Hayden Sailer is a serious My Little Pony fan and has added a custom Luna hood ornament to his vintage Oldsmobile. He did it by finding a design on Shapeways and then printing it with a 3D printer and painting it with chrome paint. It’s a brilliant idea really. Think of the possibilities!

rainbow_dash_humanization_by_sparrow_chan-d68sc15

Even though Equestria Girls turned My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic’s ponies into human-like beings, I still haven’t seen a ton of art depicting the characters as humans. Not as much as I’d expect, anyway. DeviantArt user sparrow-chan is filling the void with her interpretations of the characters in vintage can-can style outfits, and I adore the illustrations.

She’s captured the the vibe of each pony, whether it be sassy for Rainbow Dash or bashful for Fluttershy. Their costumes feature their signature colors and style, too. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we see this art brought to life by a cosplay group soon.

dreamcatchers 1

You can add geeky improvements to almost any object, even dreamcatchers. Etsy seller Stars, Spikes, and Madness has transformed the hoop meant to keep nightmares at bay into pop culture pieces of art. The center section of the dreamcatcher is a piece of leather that has been carved, dyed, painted, and sealed. The cords are waxed, and the type of beads on each style varies.

She has dreamcatchers with Doctor Who themes, the cutie marks from My Little Pony, Mass Effect logos, and many more. If you don’t see what you want, you can place a custom order.

my_little_dalek_by_country_geek_crochet-d74ksse

Daleks and the word cute don’t often cross my mind at the same time, but there is no other word to describe these crochet creations from DeviantArt user Country Geek Crochet. That’s right, Doctor Whooves isn’t the only Doctor Who/My Little Pony connection, there are My Little Daleks!

The Pinkie Pie toy is my favorite; I can totally picture her bouncing around trying to throw a party to cheer up all the Daleks.

Check out shots of the individual Daleks after the break.

mlp cthulhu 1

Friendship may be magic but according to Bigshot Toyworks, “Friendship is Maddness.” The toy company has taken the look of My Little Pony and combined the characters with some Cthulhu touches like tentacles and big eyes. Little Maddie, pictured above, is just one of the characters they’re working on for a series of animation shorts and toys. The pony and monster combination works well, and I bet these creatures creep right off the shelves and into homes in a flash.
