The Lutece twins easter egg in S4E23.   I note that I originally had believed their mark to be a cage, but now that I've checked the iTunes version, I'm more convinced its the standard hourglass mark, slightly recolors to stand out on the pale coat color (which still works within the reference). This is the clearest single shot of that mark: which convinced me it was the hourglass.

A pair of scientists from a place only one step away, but further away than the moon. They carry starlight in their wake and they are the puppets that see the strings, so they always look bored, disgruntled, or at most mildly interested while acting as catalysts upon the system (you can be sure they are to blame for SOMETHING in that episode...). There is more than one of everything, so there is more than one of their kind floating about, constants and variables in a universe of chaos. You'll see them elsewhere, I'm sure.

The game is, my friends, to find all the references I made and associate them with their respective fictional universes. Good luck. Supposing anyone actually bothers. ^^

Cool. I wonder the Lutece twins are doing in Equestria.

Probably trying to find those collar pieces (turns out you CAN get anything at the Rainbow Falls Trader's Exchange).
klokateer666 Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2014
Oh. Of course, that makes sense.

Would you kindly upload them as separate image files, without the magic shimmer?

For some reason I'm strangely compelled to do so :)

God I love fancy ponies <3

I wonder what did they trade for that cage ? 
thasbrony Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2014
a bird ;)
AlabasterRae Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2014
seems legit
9CentsChange Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I can totally see them doing the bird and cage thing to Rarity. It'd likely end with Rarity calling Applejack over and having her pick between the bird and the cage.

I would have totally loved if they had just walked up to Rarity and Applejack and were just like..
"There's a simple way to decide"
"Or tails"
"I never find that as satisfying as I'd imagined"
"Chin up, their's always next time"
"I suppose there is"

I'm actually surprised that a vectored image of these two took so long to be... well, vectored. But, BioShock references are not unprecedented in Friendship Is Magic material; there is a sign advertising Plasmids and Vigors in issue #9 of the IDW comics.
"Most curious, brother."
"What is?"
"That this world, as different as it is from the world we came from, should also have vigors available for consumption."
"By the contrary, it should not be too curious at all. Constants..."
"And variables."
"Though, the simultaneous existence of plasmids alongside vigors is most curious a phenomenon."
"A fair point. Especially considering the thaumaturgic abilities that many of these equines already exhibit."
"Even thaumaturgy has its limits, brother. It seems that horned equines such as ourselves possess telekinesis as a constant..."
"And the winged equines possess aerokinetic and atmokinetic abilities..."
"And the non-winged and non-horned equines... they possess geokinesis, it seems."
"There does seem to be a princess equine over there, with a very vibrant equine attempting to hawk her books upon the masses."
"Could an equine with wings and a horn possess the attributes of all three equine races?"
"A fair hypothesis."
"A theory, brother. 'Hypothesis' implies a certain lack of surety."
"True. It would be odd for a princess equine to only possess two out of three."
"It would. It also seems that her existence is a constant in this world that keeps it in some semblance of order. As are the five around her."
"'Order' being a subjective term herein."
"Of course. Complete order would necessitate a certain lockstep conformity that this world seems rather bereft of."
"Just enough order to keep the peace..."
"Yet just enough chaos to keep things interesting."
"Two sides..."
"One coin."

constints and variables...
MrBarthalamul Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm actually surprised that Bioshock of all things was referenced. The animator that added these two is now one of my favorite people. lol Nice job on the vector! 
FrostRaven32 Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
Well great. Now I feel like I'm in Bioshock Infinite all over again
