Fresh from San Diego Comic Com come two videos from season 3 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
I've mentioned before that it seems like The Hub had my games of Unknown Ponies bugged, because it seemed like elements of them -- Derpy flying backwards, the Timber Wolves, etc -- kept cropping up throughout season 2. But this video has convinced me that a writer from the show really IS reading my blog, because it might as well be the theme song for Failure is Awesome.
Please note the mathpony cameo around the 0:50 mark. I believe The Jack has found his pony avatar...
I call upon the... wait. Crystal ponies? Man, this throws everything off!
The thing is, they don't look like they're crystalline -- of course, we're only going by book illustrations and not an actual picture of one from the show. But it seems more like they're earth ponies with crystal architecture/technology than anything else.
Dang it, I still want sea ponies!
That'll do, sea pony. That'll do.
