This post is actually a follow up to the original post detailing the deletion of DoubleRainboom, where we first got speculation of the possible theft that went on and the story behind the actual deletion. It IS known that the public reason was complete shit, keep in mind. Now, after time has passed, two users by the names of Slashy and Lord Bababa have hoarded information and chat logs for proof.
Our first piece of evidence is this side by side comparison of the DHX models and the ones used in the shit taco known as Double Rainboom.

Now to those of you who are not animation buffs, myself included, what you're seeing on these two models are the wireframes for the puppets (please, animationfags, have mercy on me if I mess some lingo up). The bad thing here is that the wireframes on both stallion models match up, 100%, to a pixel sized level.
Now there's two possibilities coming from this match up. Either everyone on the project are some of the cream of the crop designer and animators to grace their field and spent countless free hours building up each model from beginning to end, so talented they were not only able to copy exactly how the objects looked, but how it was built as well. Or there's the more likely idea that he stole them from DHX media.
Now, keep in mind, the staff was allowed to use the likeness of Hasbro's characters, not the real DHX puppets. Some very helpful users at mlpforums also provided evidence to support the theft. This could mean, not only the possibility of his expulsion, but serious legal trouble as well. However, stealing official models isn't the only fucked up thing involving StarRingoSlick.
FloppyDingoDick has screwed a lot of you out of your money, what with his "pay for me to come to convention" (look at ALL the comments for bullshit) or when he charged $30 for just a skype call. Or how about how he tried to sell someone a copy of TECHNICAL SOURCE FILES from Double Rainboom in his DeviantArt post comments?

I'm sure that there is more as the ride continues, as well as more evidence to provide with time, but for now, please review the links and help us with any information you can find, and post in the comments with info. We will be posting more quickly written horse crap as the story unravels.
We also have a chat log with one of the staff members involved with the Double Rainboom project, thanks to based user Slashy. It involves the theft, as well as...TRUE TAILS COMING TO THE HUB?
Horse-News would like to remind you the theft is a terrible crime, and one can only shoot someone and get away with it in Florida, so be careful.
