I think as SoCal bronies we should definitely try and be at this event!
I just put in a random time, you can arrive there anytime after 11:00 AM (the store closes at 7:00 PM).

When does the My Little Pony Launch Party end?
anypony wanna give Big Mac a ride? I live in Cerritos, which is 10-15 min away. It would be greatly appreciated. Text/call [masked]
wait, if you're there, aren't you just like, 20-30 minutes biking distance? xP
Has anypony received their preordered comics in the mail?
0 · November 30, 2012
I will most likely tomorrow, tracking number says one of my comics arrived last night at the USPS. Should go out to my home tomorrow!
Or later today in this case.
I bought mine yesterday at my local comic store
I just got mine from Jetpack comics. My goodness, it is sparkly! It's the Super Flutters cover.
Adrian, how much did the Jetpack variant cost? The Midtown Comics variant (with Derpy) was $10!
I think at the time I bought it, it was $20. Right now it's $25. Different covers, different prices I guess!
My order hasn't shipped yet :(
sooooo i haven't used internet in a while so I HAVE NO IDEA what these comics are or why i'm even going. convince me ._.'
FOR PONIES!! Also to hang out with the creators and get those comics signed so they can be worth a lot of money in the later future depending on the condition you keep them in :-)
but... i have no idea what these comics even are... missed a lot being not on the internet and not at any meetups for a while :P
I am doing a practice run to the meet up on my bike
I look forward to seeing everypony tomorrow! :3 There's gonna be A LOT of us.
Anyone pass through Huntington park or Norwalk station? Need ride. :O
I take the 91 Freeway it passes by Norwalk if you need a ride
Should have left my phone number it is[masked] I am also willing to give anybody in the Torrance /Gardena /Carson /Redondo Beach area a ride but maximum capacity is 4
Why hasn't anyone made a carpool/info sheet for this? Woulda helped some of us who actually needed a ride and not bog down the ride request comments. :\
2 · November 30, 2012
Anyone coming through/from Burbank? :'D
Looking at the weather, it looks like it'll just be hazy during Saturday. Sunday it should rain in Anaheim.
0 · November 29, 2012
Anyone in the San Diego area willing to give me a ride? I sort of have one already but it requires the absence of another person, so I can't assume it's definite. I'm willing to pay the gas fare no problem.
0 · November 28, 2012
Never mind, got a ride. See you all there!
I think they should have it outside so that ppl wont be a fire hazard blocking the entrance for those that just wanna go inside and look around
Where do we meet??? :O
Hopefully in the store, but most likely in line. C:
If it rains then oh wells lol
1 · November 29, 2012
any pony coming from Long Beach who could give me a ride?
It's going to be a seroiusly huge line/crowd of people, I hope they have enough comics for everypony. ^-^;
1 · November 28, 2012
Preorders shouldn't be a problem but walkins I'm not so sure. Don't know if the shop be prepared enough for the massive turnout. They would need to buy 300 or more to be safe. First come first serve :p
Heads Up! On the Facebook event page, 270 bronies will be attending this event!. So I advise all of you to be there a few hours early to get the best spot in line. I'll be there with my helmet and B shirt, cyall there!
270 claim to attend... only 500 show up... or if lucky only 50
Hmm this i gotta see since we cant fit everyone inside
This'd be a good opportunity to spread the word of our group. Btw, Josh, your numbers don't add up. XD
I know riiight
Oh course, it is a perfect time to spread the word of the Meetup Group, Heather. Good thing I will be wearing my full Doctor cosplay, at least I'm completely easy to spot and hard to not notice. ^^; You will know what I mean when I arrive...and it isnt what anyone would expect unless you seen me at EQLA... Heh. ^-^
Oh wow, awesome! I remember your Dr Hooves outfit at EQLA. :) I hope you don't intend to bring it if it rains. I'd hate to see it get messed up. :( I'm hoping to cosplay as Vinyl, if weather permits. ^^
Really? You remember? Thank you! :3
It's sort of unlikely it will rain, it might be abit cloudy, but that is a good thing for me. ^^ (Since it does take effort to move in the full suit, and I dont want to end up getting too hot in the suit or become possiblely in overheat.)
Also, keep a look out for my companion, she will be with me too! =DI look forward to seeing your Vinyl cosplay, Heather.
Dude, it's hard to forget an outfit of that magnitude. XD Hmmm.... my phone says it will be raining on Saturday, though I do remember hearing on the radio that it was only a 20% chance. *shrug* Hopefully it won't. I remember you and your Fausticorn companion dancing at the rave and wondered how you two were surviving. XD;
The Little Ceasers over there is gonna be busy that day
@Heather Hehe, really? Thank you for remembering both of us, Heather! ^w^ (Most likely it might just be cloudy.) You saw us at the Pony Rave Dance? We were wearing neon lights all over us, dancing around in the center and up front, very hard to miss us when we were mostly the only ones standing out. Well, we just did, like I said "We just keep going and dont stop!", its even more surprizeing to others that we both survived, and that your not the only one that ask that question during EQLA. XD Although we were dancing all night til the end and seroiusly tired after, it was WORTH IT!
@Nicco Yes, yes they are going to be very busy. XD
Hell yeah, the whole rave was worth it! I was cosplaying as Vinyl during it. ^_^ Burned some nice calories that night and just generally felt awesome. I can't wait for next year's rave!
What EQLA 2013 needs is tons of glow sticks or neon braclelets so that everyone has one, u can purchase them at Michael's or Dollar treeAnd EQLA 2013 should have lasers too for the dance floor
While I was there, I was thinking they should have used laser or strobe lights. More than that, there are brony DJs who also use custom laser lights that form in the shape of different ponies. Idk if we could get them to come to our con, but it would be cool. :) I have some new glow sticks, but it certainly wouldn't be enough for everyone.
I have a laser light and fog machine
Dude, don't hold out on us! If the staff allows it, BRING THAT STUFF!
To EQLA 2013, I mean. :P
@Heather I think I've ran into you and met you once...(I'm not sure, too many bronies and cosplayers to remember...) Ya, same here, it felt great, I wanted to keep going more, but my body was wiped out still, even those I was too pumped up. Same here, I look forward to next year! True, we may have to ask around for those whoever has laser light knowluage of that, and see if they can do it during the next EQLA Pony Rave. That does sound awesome!
@Andrew Blue Good thing I gotten mine long ago, they were purchased at Walmart for a Halloween MLP Nightmare Night Cosplay Party I hosted, but didnt used them. Good thing I saved them and able to use them for the Pony Rave! So worth it! True, that does sound like a awesome idea, it would look so much better and more cooler. More light sticks & light shows!
@Andrew Blue You have a laser light & a fog machine?!? Ok! Andrew! You & me must talk privately now! Email me right away! :D
You probably did run into me at some point, though not in your cosplay. I've never spoken to you while you were the Doctor. I will definitely say hi next time, though. :) Haha, yeah, my feet and legs were starting to hurt, but I didn't really care. I was having way too much fun.
@Heather Ok, look forward to meeting you again. Do talk to me and such, make sure you have my attention if I'm in my suit, since I cant see everything that happens around me. Ya, same here, too much fun, its always worth it to me.
December 1st is going to be epic...in addition to the comic book signing, look who returns on that day!!
1 · November 26, 2012
Oh that episode is next! Interesting.
How big is the building?
0 · November 25, 2012
The comic book store itself isn't real big...right now we have 53 people RSVP'd for this meetup and that will probably be close to the store's occupancy limit. That's why we're having the after-autograph meetup at Twila Reed park.
Okay, I just checked Beach Ball Comic's Facebook page and saw that the store is being majorly renovated so it may be bigger and roomier that I remember it.
Ya hopefully cuz hopefully it wont be like Gameology where.we were cramped lol
0 · November 26, 2012
I been there, its pretty much the same if not smaller, counting on the amount of people here and the facebook event page, I think there won't be much room if they're leaving their merchandise around. I think a line may be formed and a limit of like 50-60 per entry.
Chris if you go I go. What about Terry? The guys from the con? Etc?
0 · November 19, 2012
i shall try my bestest and stuff .-.
0 · November 24, 2012
i'm trying to go to las pegasus! check out the deal that ends MONDAY!!!
You failed, so get the hell over here instead.
yeah i'll try. see if i'll be allowed to :3...
Im coming from Norwalk,This is my route, if you're around the area feel free to text me for a ride.
0 · November 22, 2012
Woops my phone is[masked]
Im also headed to the potluck park meetup after this.
Okay everypony, check this out...there will be a meetup at Twila Reed park at 3100 W. Orange Avenue just a few blocks north of Beach Ball Comics. We're gonna have food and drinks, and we want everypony to bring their autographed comics for a group photo that will be submitted to Equestria Daily.
Some bronies out there will be bragging that they have all 19 or so cover variations...but even if we only have the standard cover issues, we'll have bragging rights that ours are autographed!
0 · November 23, 2012
Yes, we'll show those bronies... By the way, can we contribute to the food stocks? I have pies and such leftover from Thanksgiving.
1 · November 23, 2012
Yep, just realized that this is also the meetup below. How Derpy of me.
Bob Hershey changed the time from 1:00 PM to 11:30 AM
November 23, 2012
Oh man is anyone coming from nearby Redondo Beach?
0 · November 20, 2012
I am coming from Torrance
I'd like to check this out. Anyone willing to give a ride to and from?
0 · November 18, 2012
Does anypony know if this cover will be used? http://www.meetup.com/SoCalBronies/photos/9702992/#[masked]
0 · November 17, 2012
As far as I know it's merely a promotional image, probably the only one of its kind at the moment. No store online or offline offers that particular cover.
From what I can tell (and I could easily be wrong so don't hold me to this) the comic book comes out on November 14th...i'm going to be checking the local comic book stores on that day just to be sure!
Regardless of the release date, I will be at the signing! :D
0 · November 9, 2012
Do tell if true, most if not all of the online stores say they'll go out on the 28th.
1 · November 9, 2012
Okay, the official release date is DEFINITELY November 28th...comic artist Andy Price confirmed it via Twitter!
0 · November 16, 2012
You know what's great about this location? There are two collectable stores right next to this place and there's a Little Cesears as well.
0 · November 15, 2012
And Twila Reed park is a few blocks north...maybe we could have a post-autograph meetup there if the weather cooperates.
What is this exactly? ._. It's a tad bit far, maybe idk
0 · November 13, 2012
It's a event celebrating the launch of the MLP comic. The authors of the book will be there and will sign your comic should you purchase one at the store. That's the only reason to go, otherwise I got like 20 variant covers coming my way.
0 · November 14, 2012
Wait... They won't sign their comics unless they're bought at that store?
As far as I know, if not, I will bring ALL of my comic variants and have each of them signed.
The comic does release before the event (28th of November) so this is possible.
I suggest we all bring our copies just in case. Even if we don't get anything signed, we can still have fun hanging out.
So, we can buy the comic at this meetup? At this place? 0^o
I think I can possibly make it.
0 · November 10, 2012
Did this location get a special cover? I've been checking EqD and it seems like only a couple of comic book stores have exclusive covers.
Maybe, but the most definite exclusive is one signed by the authors themselves, even if it is the original cover.
That's for sure. I was just curious.
I'm actually glad that it got pushed back a little bit since it got moved to a Saturday instead of being on a Wednesday. Therefore, I can actually make it =)
That time is perfect for me! See you there!
0 · November 4, 2012
A Saturday...Fantastic. :)
Adrian "Art" Glenn changed the date and time from Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 2:00 PM to Saturday, December 01, 2012 at 1:00 PM

Adrian "Art" Glenn changed the date and time from Wednesday, November 14, 2012 at 2:00 PM to Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 2:00 PM
October 6, 2012
Hmm, what with this link:
It seems that the comic will definitely NOT be released on the 14th but instead on the 28th (still a Wednesday, dang).
Anyway, I'm seriously considering changing the Meetup date, since it won't make sense for them to arrive on the 14th with no comic out right?
0 · October 6, 2012
Release date of the Mlp Comic may have been pushed back to Nov 28th, due to Season 3 being released first. Here da Link http://www.equestriadaily.com/2012/10/mlp-comic-issue-1-release-date-changed.html
0 · October 4, 2012
Has Beach Ball Comics officially re-scheduled the launch party?
Nope, not yet. Im just hoping the new info is a mistake cause this might intrude with Premiere Night.
I actually called Beach Back earlier today, a manager there told that they're most likely to change the date since, in his words: "If the the product is not out yet, we can't do a release event for it"
<|:( " But I wanted to party."
Hmm, well it's still a month away so we'll see.
Why does it have to be wednesday...
1 · October 1, 2012
New comics are released every week on Wednesday.
This is just down the street for me. This is gonna be SO AWESOME!!!
0 · October 1, 2012
Then I'd like a ride good sir!
@Cayci I didn't know the official time for the event so that's why I just put 2:00. The store opens from 11:00AM-7:00PM so I guess yeah 2:00 would secure you a less crowded spot.
I wonder what the other comic fans think of ponies?
The official time for the event is 4 pm...so is the time for this 2 pm so we can get in line early?
0 · September 30, 2012
I missed out on the trading cards, so i'm not going to miss out on the comics!
