#132--Bonus Comic



Minty really does have terrible luck with the mail. Perhaps it’s bad karma.



I just got a bunch of great Nintendo Wii miniatures! A company called Yujin makes all sorts of gashapon, which are really cool gumball machine prizes from Japan. Their latest set is a series of Wii keychains, which are perfect, pony–sized replicas of the real thing. I can’t wait to get more of these!

Cute accessories? Mini Wii for the win!

Hee hee... Minty looks so frustrated in those last two panels.

I totally LOL'd at flower-head Minty! But I hafta admit, I was REALLY curious how she'd look like in a Terminator costume... that would'a been totally wicked! =D

Looking forward to everyone else's Halloween costumes... ^_^

P.S. I [HEART] Gashapons too! I have them displayed of my computer table.

Oh, wow--did I just see that pony costume last night at Target? I thought it was so cute.

Where'd you get/how'd you make the mini-Wii?

Also, are you familiar with this site: http://www.printmini.com/printables/

I've seen those gashapons around and I immediately wondered if that was what you used for their Wii. They are adorable; I bought a couple, but I didn't get the MarioKart one.

I found the whole set on eBay. It's too awesome! The only problem is that the remotes aren't in scale to the console, so I'll have to make some of those. Now I want the other Nintendo sets they've made. :P

Wii gashapon!? What will they think of next! :) I think Minty would love to play Wii fit. ;) it could be part of Kimono's physical therapy. ;)

Oh noes! And it's too late for a replacement to be sent, LOL. Time to improvise, Minty. Does she have some nuts and bolts and an old Rubbermaid container? I'm thinking Wolvie claws. XD

The tiny Wii is sooooo cute. And it's good to see Kimono up and about!

Wolvie Claws FTW! :D I have to wonder what a pony would look like with claws. o_O

Oh wow! Tiny Wii and Wii-wheel...so cute! Kimono's cast has been signed, awww :)
I lol'd irl at the Terminator/flower.

Oh, who signed her cast? *chases her with a marker!* I wanna!

I'm not sure how much I like the flower head costume. Hasbro make sme wonder sometimes...But I like your use of it!^__^

Next to last panel=Posing FTW!

I'll be adding new signatures each week, but so far, Minty, Fluttershy, Brightly, Breezie, Sweetberry and Wysteria have signed her cast. Breezie, Sweetberry and Wysteria were the new signatures for this week. ^_^

I definitely felt the need to make fun of the plastic flower head costume. Oh, yes.

You mean it's that rubbery stuff that the G3s have been coming with lately and NOT cloth? >.< They STILL have yet to hit my area and all the MIB pictures make them look cloth-like. And I think Starsong's hat is cloth...

Oct. 28th, 2008 09:42 pm (UTC)
Sadly, that hat is plastic, as well. >:P

Mini Wii!! I love Japan. ^_^ "Just hold it like you would a steering wheel!" --now I want to see a pony-vehicle.

Did you photoshop an actual screenshot on there? Nice.

Wysteria looks so COY in the last two panels. Poor Minty.

And yay, we can see their address!! (You've probably shown it before and I've just not noticed, lol.)

Yep! I think I kinda botched the job, though. :P

636 Willow Pond Lane. ^_^ It's shown up in the comic before, but I think it was always too small to make out.

I figured it must have been shown at some point, with all the packages that they've received.

Not at all! Well, it may be a weeeeeeee bit crooked (no pun intended) in the first panel, but forgivably so. That's way more effort than I would have put into it!

Wo, and I still don't know what will be my costume on Halloween! Giant flower might be a good option... :D

O.M.G. Completely in LOVE with the mini Wii. Methinks I may have to go on a search to try to find one for my ponies =X

And poor Minty. . .I feel her pain with the mail. . .oooh do I >.< That being said, I have 2 days to sew my whole Halloween costume. . .perhaps the mail would have been better in this case. . .lol.
