I just got home from my first-ever brony meetup at a local Colonial Cafe restaurant! Around 25 people total showed up to hang out and discuss everything pony. (Photo*) (Also, try to guess which one is me)
We showed off our pony collections on a big table, jokingly argued over who is best pony, sang Winter Wrap Up (among many other songs), ate ice cream, and then afterwards about 10 of us raided a nearby Toys R Us for all their pony stuff!
Only I didn't actually buy any pony stuff, because they didn't have anything I was still missing from my wishlist. Still waiting for the new blind bag ponies wave 2-4, as well as the TRU-exclusive brushables that come out this fall.
So I walked a couple aisles over to the Lego section and they had several boxes of Series 7 minifigures!
I quickly dug through them and managed to find all 16 minifigs with no dupes, as well as Wolverine's Chopper Showdown set. Woo!
All in all, an awesome night. This particular brony meetup is monthly, and I am so attending again in June.
UPDATE: Here's an audio clip I threw together!
Andrew Francis is the voice of Jaller from Mask of Light, as well as Shining Armor from the My Little Pony season 2 finale.
UPDATE 2: And now his response to the audio clip!
There are actually a number of voice actors with roles in both the Bionicle movies and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I posted this in Aho's blog comments a couple weeks ago, but here's a list I threw together:
- Tabitha St. Germain - MLP: Rarity - BIONICLE: Toa Nokama (LoMN, WoS)
- Brian Drummond - MLP: Mr. Carrot Cake - BIONICLE: Toa Onewa, Toa Matau (LoMN, WoS)

- Andrew Francis - MLP: Braeburn, Shining Armor - BIONICLE: Jaller
- Chiara Zanni - MLP: Daring-Do - BIONICLE: Hahli
I did not get a healthy amount of sleep that night.
In the past year, I've bought pony merch, helped out a bit with several brony collabs and projects, and I even got to meet up IRL with a brony in my area for coffee! (He even gave me an amazing hand-carved woodwork Fluttershy!)
So, in celebration of an entire year filled with pony, I've decided to face my fears and upload a complete vocal cover I recorded of The Flim Flam Brothers Song. Enjoy!
