MyNameDerp SingleDerp by PixelKitties


Derpy is now pretty officially safe and sound, both at Hasbro and We Love Fine.  Just take a look RIGHT HERE, RIGHT HERE, and RIGHT HERE.


Congratulations everyone and thank you for your support over the past several days.  

At this point, Hasbro is trying very hard to come up with a policy for dealing with our not-so-little community.  The best thing folks can do now is give them some breathing room.  So for now, no more calls or emails.  Let's have faith they are going to do right by us.  Now, more than ever before, the powers-that-be are aware of the size and buying power of our community.  I think we're going to see very good things from them in the near future. 

And don't forget to give yourselves a tremendous round of applause.  Our community rallied in a big way and accomplished something pretty darn impressive.  Great job, bronies!  You're all now, officially, second best pony, right after Derpy.


PS- On a personal note, if you are the Tumblr-following type, you can now keep up with yours truly over there as well!  For now, I expect it will just be some random updates and another spot to post comics and art, but in the future?  Who knows!  It may just be the Tumblr that saves you from velociraptor attack.

I'd like to point out that for over EIGHTY DOLLARS you can buy a Batman special addition statue.

It's literally a very pretty piece of plastic. FOR EIGHTY DOLLARS.

If that's the amount someone is willing to pay for THAT, try to image what the brony community, a community of mostly late teens/Young adults with the theoretically greatest amount of disposable income, would buy for something like a limited edition Twilight/Nightmare Moon bust depicting the fall of Nightmare Moon, in glorious three dimensional plastic.

Seriously, try to image how much you'd pay. Because I have yet to come up with an amount of money to properly express how much I could throw at the screen before I'd stop and say 'This might be too much...'

ALL OF MY MONEY!

For those wondering, the #OccupyHasbro campaign is still on, but the supply listing has crossed out "picket signs" in place of "fresh baked muffins," and "dress for weather" now reads "dress for dance party."

We have also dropped Michael Moore from the guest speaker panel, and opted for Slurms McKenzy instead.

Thank you.

The general gist I'm getting from all of the transpiring events and input I'm getting from people I talk to is that there's a positive impact from all of this across the community.

I'm glad that it's binding, rather than tearing into the fandom.

As soon as your choice of image loaded on my screen, I went, OMFCITSDERPYSHESOCUTE!!

"...buying power of our community." These words fill me with excitement. D'you think this means we'll get show-accurate toys and a DVD set with shattons of special features? I want audio commentaries more than anything.

The Derpy thing is good news. The "Hasbro setting up an official marketing strategy for the Brony demographic" is *excellent* news, being as that opens the door just a wee bit wider towards the potential for a possible bit of real 'Brony Merch' (note the heavy use of qualifiers - this is just a small step, though still significant).

Finally, the most important part of this journal is that I am now watching the Tumblr that may save me from a velociraptor attack. This has been a mortal fear of mine since the day Jurassic Park was released to theaters (it had *quite* an effect on my nine year old mind at the time).

. . . holy crap. . . Jurassic Park the movie is almost 20 years old now. I don't often find myself feeling old, but. . . dang. This movie's release was a formative moment in my childhood. . . and it probably happened before several of the readers here were even born =O Anyway, completely unrelated to Hasbro, here's a very quick, poorly mouse-drawn Velociraptor. He doesn't have a name and gets *really* mad when people say "Clever girl". . . cause, you know, "HE" and all.

"This movie's release was a formative moment in my childhood." Mine, too. I was five. Scared me so much I had to sit in my dad's lap, then I went back for more.
