Shout! FactoryWhile fans of MY LITTLE PONY impatiently await the long-touted "Spring 2015" debut of MY LITTLE PONY FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC Season 5 on the Discovery Family Channel, I'm more excited for the coming of Spring in general, as the winter weather here at Rock Father HQ has already outlived it's welcome. The arrival of Spring plays an important role in the 1986 film, MY LITTLE PONY: THE MOVIE, which is being re-issued this month on a "30th Anniversary Edition" DVD thanks to the folks at Shout! Factory. The ponies have come a very long way in the three decades-plus since they first made their debut, and the latest evolution hit screens last year with the sequel to EQUESTRIA GIRLS, RAINBOW ROCKS. As we bookend the past and present while awaiting the near future, Shout! Factory and THE ROCK FATHER are teaming up to get two (2) lucky readers hooked up with copies of both films - MY LITTLE PONY: THE MOVIE on DVD and MY LITTLE PONY: EQUESTRIA GIRLS - RAINBOW ROCKS on Blu-ray Combo Pack! Ready to win?

In reality, all twelve of the finalists should be in the Hall of Fame, but since just two will make the cut, I'm curious which ones all of YOU think should be crowned...
