WHY DO MY COMMENTS KEEP GETTING DELETED?
I WANT IT!I WANT IT NOW!
Things I have on my shelf at home that turn into robots: a truck (well, who doesn’t)a car (fairly common)a gorilla (beast wars anyone?)a plane (meh...)a spider (hubba-hubba!)a rock (Rock Lords! Yeah!)a wrist watch (nice!)some dinosaurs (always cool!)a truck-gorilla-plane-robot thing (which I do love, by the way)a pink motorcyclea blue motorcycle a smaller blue motorcyclean even smaller white motorcycle (I have a thing for motorcycles it seems) BUT!.. But nowhere do I have a MY Little PONY!
Inb4 "transformers are 20% cooler"
And stupid catchphrases like that are why rainbow dash is worst pony.
Rainbow Sparkle? Is that some sort of shipping?
Who needs Hasbro? Send it to Fansproject or Perfect Effect or one of the zillion other third party TF manufacturers. Hell, you could potentially pull it off with Shapeways.
I'd rather buy fake piss
I like MLP and TF but this has bad idea written all over it. novelty toys never last
Hell, I'm still waiting for the GI Joe RPG
It's good, but it needs to be 20% more awesome.
Go funk yourself.
So I guess this means we wont be seeing the picture of the cake with Garrus riding Pinkie Pie thru space I sent you, huh?
What do you guys think the tech specs would read on this bad-boy?
With such a toy, I'd finally get to play with my nieces without having to compromise narrative quality!
Would be pretty cool, but IIRC the Animated line is completely finished, due to CN's bullshittery.
Time to activate the Fanon-Signal!
I would love to see a crossover between "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" and "Transformers: Animated". Among other things, one of the villains of the later is a child genious called "Professor Princess", a little girl who wants to destroy all the violent, boyish toys, by shooting lasers from her magic wand and her flying robot unicorn "Powered Sugar"... she claims that explosions are nice only when they are rainbow colored... notice that we have Rainbow Dash making a rainbow nuke in "Lesson Zero"... Just think of the possibilities and all the meta...
I'd settle for bringing back transformers animated at the very least.
Robotic Wing Boners?
They've done it. http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Battle_... Granted it's not MLP, but close enough.
I keep throwing my grimy money at the screen, but nothing's happening. Please, somebody make this into a real thing. Also, ten demerits for getting Dash's name wrong.
In the meantime, I guess I'll keep making them out of papercraft.
also! the only transforming i want to see from MLP is from pony to cupcake!
I'd rather see it turn into a Snowballimus.
with a gooey "playdoh" center. yum!

Ah, what is the mouth but the urethral meatus to the body's PENIS?
sometimes the excitement is so overwhelming that even mouths ejaculate
(Retches up lunch over jeans)
Im thinking from pony to glue.
now that's my kind of comment!
Pah! A mere inferior imitation to the glorious brilliance of you, My Dark Lord! -bows in respect-
Meh, make one for Fluttershy, then we'll talk.
I must be getting old. I just don't understand this infatuation with My Little Pony.
All of my memories of My Little Pony are negative ones. I used to leave the original MLP show on when I was a kid just to see the commercials for Transformers and GI Joe and thought it was awful. I still don't fully understand why those commercials were aired during a girls show and MLP commercials were aired during TF and GI Joe. ?
The original MLP show (shows) WERE awful-- This one isn't. No one was more surprised than I was.
You know what's funny about it? This is basically the same formula that show creators use in Japan with moe-themed anime, except without the creepy fan service in this case. Get a bunch of girls with overly charming (and one note) personalities and just have them do cute things in a cute way in a cute-ified world, and people show up. The same people that used to make fun of otaku and call people weeaboos are getting snared in this trap, and they didn't even realize how fast it happened.
When people said it was a cute show that was really well done for the whole family, it was cool. When the memes started to snowball, I said "uh oh". When the show began to acknowledge the adult fans, the alarms went off. And when it became a subculture, it was something to fear. I guess there's no harm in the show itself, but like Matt said, this thing appears to be a very potent strain of fan virus.
If you're basing your opinion on the G1 show from the 80s, there's the problem. The current show has almost nothing to do with that saccharine toy commercial. Seriously, if you don't like it that's fine, but don't bash it because of a totally different, 20-years-older version of the franchise.
That's like saying Original Star Trek sucks because of Enterprise (only in reverse).
More like bashing BATMAN- THE ANIMATED SERIES based on the Adam West Batman show.
I hated MLP as a kid, aside from the actual toys. Even then I preferred my model horses.I LOVE the show now. Have you watched a few episodes of FiM? It's adorable, and funny. Lauren Faust is an expert at blending childish fun and humor into something the whole family can enjoy.
I've never seen the original series. I had zero interest in the property until the Friendship is Magic series got introduced to me.
The last thing I thought I'd like was a MLP series, but the writing on the new one is much more universal instead of just some girly show.
(It's no different than how stuff like Powerpuff Girls has a strong following that crosses the gender line, really)
"I must be getting old. I just don't understand this infatuation with My Little Pony."
it's simple. it's called denial. bronies are furies by another name.
"bronies are furies by another name."Not true. Ponies are not anthro, and while there is some overlap, the fandoms tend to be quite different.
I say this as both a brony and a furry. Make of that what you will.
Debatable, MLPs talk, wear limited clothing, use tools in a limited fashion, and sometimes go on two legs for comedic effect. They sleep in beds, live in houses, they resemble humans more than they resemble actual ponies. This is a valid definition of Anthro, you're splitting hairs.
i was in the thundercats fandom for a number of years (this is old, pre-remake thundercats) it was so early as far as internetz go that furries as a thing was still away in the future. there were many fans who fancied themselves thunderians and even a couple of trolls who went by the guises (and even dressed like) the snarves. anyway, we didn't know it at the time, they were furries. i got no problem with furs. at all. my point is to show how some folks who get bent out of shape at the thought of furs but who go all pony out are being a tad bit hipocritical
All fandoms have their weirdos and pervs, FFF should be proof enough of that already.
I actively try to avoid all the disturbing and perverse stuff like the plague.
I won't deny that they made a lot of disturbing stuff, but they have also made a bunch of wonderful and beautiful art.
*bro-hoof* to you too.
WELL PLAYED, SIR!!!
We can close the internet down now, Dr. Abraxas has won.
That's not... erm... ah!... no... err... sigh... yeah, okay. It's true. I'm just going to wallow in my own shame and self disgust now.
I didn't know bronies were the goddesses of vengeance
Furries, you mean. Really? I assumed it was a big 4chan joke. You mean those people *actually* like MLP? Jesuschrist.
Give in to the Friendship!
Come to the Pony side, we got Cupcakes
We are LegionWe are Bronie
*whickers madly and prances away*
It's adorable, and the humor is smart. You can keep hating, though, it's ok. I'm gonna love and tolerate the shit outta you <3
Many parasitic infections have been known to engender a sense of euphoria in the victim, often as a means to spreading to further hosts.
YOU FOOLS!!! DON'T YOU SEE?!! THEY AREN'T COMING!!! THEY'RE ALREADY HERE!!! YOU'RE NEXT!!! YOU'RE NESSS.... ARGHHHHHHHHH I used to wonder what friendship could be...
4Chan was the delivery system, I'd say. Once it started turning up there, people started checking it out and it infected the internet.
Though I wouldn't call it infection given I personally enjoy it.
yeah, they do. they do...
Nerd news, humor and self-loathing.
