There hasn’t been a My Little Pony feature film since 1986’s creatively titled My Little Pony: The Movie, but one popular pink pony managed to sneak her way into the multiplexes since then in a brief cameo in 2007’s Transformers.
In the Micheal Bay blockbuster, a little girl carrying a Pinkie Pie plushie mistakes the Transformer Ironhide for the tooth fairy. As both Transformers and My Little Pony are Hasbro properties, the cameo was not only cute but also probably made someone in corporate use the phrase “brand synergy.”
But what you may not realize is that My Little Pony and Transformers have met more than once. The Transformers wiki has a breakdown of all the My Little Pony/Transformers crossovers since the inception of both toylines here.
Personally, I remember seeing the Transformers trailer for the first time in theatres and cackling like a crazy person when Pinkie Pie showed up on screen because it was just too perfect. What did you think of the pink wonder’s feature film debut? And, more importantly, do you think we’ll ever get another My Little Pony feature film?
And didn’t the original prop go for around $500 on eBay? Does anyone remember?
