Where Fantasy Horses Come From

Hello there! I'm HareTrinity and this is my very first time writing for this site. The plan is for me to start posting reviews of non-Filly animated series, episodes, and films featuring prominent fantasy equines, but this first article will instead be about legendary horses.

Now, you're likely familiar with today's fantasy equines having horns and/or wings, but how much do you know about the mythology and folklore behind these creatures? Do you want to know about the gory origin of Pegasus or man-eating equines of legend?

Thank you, Magicas!


Join me after the page break for a brief overview of a few striking examples of legendary equines and, as I'm posting on Halloween night, expect some unfriendly horse beasts!

Your Questions Wanted!

Hello everyone! It's now been a week since we started running daily updates (which we will keep doing for a limited time), and a week and a half since the end of MIPCOM. At this point, the assumption that we're not getting any Filly Funtasia news out of MIPCOM this year is a fairly safe one to make.

So let's do something different, yet again. In about a week from now, me (that's Skundi) and Zejgar will be holding a long discussion where we go over the current situation, what we think could happen in the future, and what our plans for this website are. We also want to take that opportunity to answer any questions and discuss anything you feel should be discussed!

Whether it be something about this site itself, or something about Filly/Filly Funtasia (we do know a few things about it by now!) or something else you want to know about or feel should be discussed - we'd like to take the opportunity to talk about it. You can either leave the questions or discussion topics here in the comments, through Twitter (@funtasiadaily), or by email ([email protected]). Thank you!

Filling You In #3: Classic Toy Lines

We continue our journey through the core toy lines of Filly in this sub-series of the Fill(y)ing You In series! Last time, we looked at the very first toy lines: Forest, Beach Party, Princess and Fairy. What unites these four lines is the element of realism, which, to be fair, weakens as the series goes on. The toy lines we will take a look today, while not being the most recent lines in the series, encapsulate what the Filly toy series are about to this day - this is the evolutionary plateau of the toy lines to this day, in many ways.

Dracco Website Filly Images

Did you know Dracco updated their homepage? Yep, it's now available at http://www.dracco.com instead of http://www.dracco.com.hk. Well, it's not really something that happened recently - it happened about half a year ago, but we didn't write about it at the time. Plenty of images depicting characters from various Dracco brands are featured on the website, and a number of Filly (Funtasia)-themed images were used for various sections. Some of them look pretty neat! To save you excessive clicking, we've collected them all for you, after the break:

Filling You In #2: Old Toy Lines

Welcome to the second installment of the "Fill(y)ing You In" series, a series dedicated to exploring various aspects of Filly! In this article, we will begin exploring the toy lines that form the core of Filly. Filly has gone through a lot of incarnations over the past ten years, losing and gaining elements along the way, so looking at all of them may take some time. This article covers the lines that jump-started the series in the very beginning. Let us dive right in!

Filly Funtasia Orchestral Arrangement

Here's something to watch for everyone that liked the music in the Filly Funtasia promo videos - an orchestral arrangement of the main Filly theme! (Also, if I'm not mistaken, it sounds like a part of the Promo 3 song is in there too!)



This arrangement was created by Ethan Toavs, who also does a lot of neat MLP G3 arrangements among other things - check out his YouTube channel for more!

Filling You In #1: Who's Making This Thing

Hello everyone, and welcome to a brand new article series that we'd like to call "Fill(y)ing You In"! When we write our articles, we've tried to focus on the larger news and have not reported much on older yet more obscure information or on the smaller tidbits that we find. In this article series, each article will focus on some aspect of Filly or Filly Funtasia and dive deep into it, exploring what we know about this topic. They will contain quite a bit of information that the long-time Filly fan will already know and some they might not. This article series could hopefully also act as a replacement for our old and horribly outdated FAQ.

For the first installment, we'd like to answer the question about who's making this thing. We've normally tried to focus on the franchise itself and not on the inner workings of the companies making it, but we've increasingly noticed that there's a number of misconceptions being spread about them. The most common being that Filly "is a German toy", which isn't completely accurate, despite what TvTropes says. There's also a persistent rumor that Filly actually started out as a G3 bootleg which had to be renamed due to a Hasbro lawsuit. There is no evidence for this either, as we're going to show in the article. But let's begin by going all the way back to the creation of Filly in 2006!

Funtasia Daily Three Year Anniversary

ÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖ
Three years? Three years. It's kind of hard to imagine, isn't it? Way back in October 2013, when the first Filly Funtasia trailer reached the internet, people began discussing it and a proto-fandom was born. With it, came this website. Things have changed a lot from those early days of confusion and frenzy, but I still like to think back to the time when Filly Funtasia (and this website!) was new and strange and got attention from many places on the internet. While writing this article, I came to think of one of those places which linked to me early on. I remember them asking sarcastically where my website would be in a year's time. I went to go and find a screenshot of that post so I could snicker at it in this introduction... but unfortunately that wasn't possible, as that forum has been offline for a while. But we're still here! As always when this day arrives, let's take a look back at the last year, and a look ahead:

Zack, Where's the Promo?


MIPCOM has always been the time of the year when we get new Filly Funtasia video content. In 2013, we got the very first promo, which led to the creation of this website. In 2014, we actually got to release their new teaser before anyone else, and in 2015, we got a new promo featuring the catchy "Magical World". The 2016 MIPCOM reel is out on BRB's YouTube channel, and... there's no Filly Funtasia to be seen. Let's get to the bottom of this.

Black Dragon Promo Revealed

It's October! The time of the year when we get new Filly Funtasia videos! And this video we're about to show may be new to us - but it was actually released back in July 2015 (Before Promo 5!) on a Chinese video site and never before seen on the English-speaking internet.
