Hasbro launches $100+ merch line officially pandering to Bronies by



And the last horse has finally crossed the finish line, as Hasbro itself has thrown in the towel and given bronies what they want....or wanted about 3 or 4 years ago. That's right, Hasbro and Integrity Toys have teamed up to release a product line officially aimed at adult fans, with an adult price tag.

Very little is known about the product line yet, the website only informs us that there will be "A fashion figure collection inspired by and celebrating the fans of the MY LITTLE PONY brand" and also that the "products are designed exclusively for adult collectors".

Does that mean they're making.....dolls of bronies themselves?

Everything we've got:

  1. Horray! :3 though I'm not quite sure way they are selling. I'm guessing toys by reading the article like probably show accurate ones but the clothing line in the ad makes me thing they are selling brony apparel?

    But seriously, does this mean the fandom s actually dying? I have no idea why they would try something like this.

    1. So, they're going for the skinny and small bronies as most of them are at least XXXL to CT (circus tent)

    2. Did you meant " average stereotypical channers size" ?
      Because from both sides of the Internet spectrum (Tumblr vs Channers),the stereotype of choice is always fat people.Compare the "overweight fedora neckbeard" as opposed to the "landwhale with colored hair and problem glasses archetype.Both sides of the same coin because childrens cant come up with something new and original to save their life

  5. "new line will sell 'in the low three figures,'"

    That better be a fancy way of saying "Lyra plush will be put to shame"

    1. For that price it'd better have a plot more strategic than the Lyra plush.

    1. Yeah, I rather spend my money on Barbie dolls or Monster High dolls than those. No one is going to buy that high price.

  8. Props for trying, but these just aren't very appealing. And seriously Hasbro, you're a multi-million dollar company, you can afford to use more than just stock vectors again. Hire some artists.

  10. >female fans are referred to as 'ladybronies'
    Never, in almost four years of being in the fandom, have I heard or read of such an appalling term.

  11. If it doesn't have a 'plot hole', it's not an adult brony toy.

    Just quoting it from elsewherre.

  12. The female character is actually a nice representation of a fan/cosplayer and the male character is like every creepy weirdo who you got stuck with in in high school who tried to tell you about his fanfiction with his OC fucking Rainbow Dash while the teacher discussed chemistry
