@Cabooceratops So was what I said. :D

@  Cabooceratops : (12 February 2016 - 09:10 PM)

It's called a joke, Polkatron, you may have heard of the concept?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 08:06 PM)

@Nutjob R/T @TheMightyMollusk Yesh are you Baybots thinking so litteral?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 02:41 PM)

Optimus makes a lousy helmet.

@  Nutjob R/T : (12 February 2016 - 02:11 PM)

Wait when did Optimus Prime fly off the top of your head?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 01:55 PM)

@Paladin @TheMightyMollusk @NotVeryKnightly Dumb dumb dumb on Hasbros part. Optimus flew withing the first three episodes of the G1 cartoon. No not the glide flight thing that only Deceps uses after that I mean the jetpack part. Plus I can site four other times he flew off the top of my head.

@  Boomhauer : (12 February 2016 - 12:45 PM)

Optimus already got to fly in RID's Season finale, though one could argue he was just falling with style instead of flying properly.

@  Rycochet : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

The Unicron Trilogy had awful shows but some really neat toys even if it did get off to a shaky start with some of the unnecessarily flawed Armada stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

Didn't he fly in Beast Hunters?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 11:58 AM)

What about Animated?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:55 AM)

Someone who never saw the Unicron Trilogy. God do I envy them....

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 11:49 AM)

...Hasbro's billing that new "Power Surge Optimus Prime" as "the first time Optimus takes flight." who thought THAT sounded right....

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:34 AM)

More likely, they'll all follow the same visual style to retain brand coherency. The most you could hope for is better writing, but don't hold your breath.

@  Dracula : (12 February 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Cool. Bay can't possibly direct all of those. Maybe we'll get someone else's vision of what a TF movie could look like.

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 10:14 AM)

ugh. we're apparently getting 1 TF film A YEAR starting 2017. and Bumblebee gets a spinoff film...

@  Plokatron : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 PM)

Guess no one has the comic then. Blast I need that close up of Ironhide's helmet!

could've also meant Cree Summer...

@  Dracula : (11 February 2016 - 08:39 AM)

Good going, Blackarachnia. I heard it's been hard for her to get roles after Hasbro brought in Airachnid.

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 06:34 AM)

you mean Venus Terzo! she's supposed to be going to Botcon

@  Whirl Maximus : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 AM)

Blackarachnia was on Supernatural last night.

@  Plokatron : (10 February 2016 - 11:08 PM)

Ponderous slagging ponderous. Hey anyone got some good Hi-res captures of Ironhide in Infestation? I really need close ups of his head for reference on a project.

@  Plokatron : (09 February 2016 - 10:46 PM)

Ok now this is funny. I ordered a used copy of HoS GN and the one I got was a library copy once. It's marked Union County on it. Thats my home county. :D It never was in my library though. Mine is named after the man who built it not the town or county but still kinda funny.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 February 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Is it sad I read "KF7 Soviet" as "KFC7 Soviet"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:38 PM)

Neat.

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 03:35 PM)

A what? Oh, you must mean a KF7 Soviet. Common mistake.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:22 PM)

Can I just get an AK-47 instead?

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 02:35 PM)

this is form 47-a. you want form 47-A. start again

@  MEDdMI : (09 February 2016 - 02:07 PM)

Now you didn't fill the form in black or blue ink. Do it again.

@  Rycochet : (09 February 2016 - 02:04 PM)

You made a typo on the first page of the forms, you're going to have to go back and fill the whole form out again, from first to final.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 February 2016 - 01:31 PM)

"bats"

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 01:09 PM)

Nice and soft, you say? This isn't even my final form!!!!

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 12:47 PM)

its nice and soft like YOU dracula *bats eyelashes* and thatll probly be the last thing i post in this thing now lol

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 08:52 AM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 February 2016 - 08:43 AM)

@  Paladin : (09 February 2016 - 07:57 AM)

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 04:58 PM)

btw one of the Transformers Victory intro's(not the original music used) on YouTube uses one of the pieces of music used on the US version of Transformers Armada

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:55 PM)

You should read it again, it gets better with age!

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 03:46 PM)

I am fully aware of that story and mentioning it carries the penalty of fifty towel snaps.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:31 PM)

Shh, it's a trap!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 February 2016 - 02:48 PM)

See, you said "awesome" and "The Beast" in the same sentence, and I think you broke my mind with the contradiction.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

No-one tell Whirl about the awesome dinobot combiner, The Beast.

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:37 PM)

@Dracula Uh oh were in trouble.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:36 PM)

If you think that's cool, wait until you see what other stuff we're hiding from you.

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 02:33 PM)

Transformers Victory's intro is awesome. And not one of you told me.... WHY?!!!

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

It doesn't count those using it on other pages.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

If it's the one by IPB Shoutbox, it means the number of people who are viewing the Shoutbox page.

@  tffan01 : (08 February 2016 - 10:34 AM)

Pony dreams?
Man out of my 3 pony related dreams 2 were about talking about ponies in /co/...
At least the other was more interesting.
Basically the US government ordered Fluttershy's death and sent everything to get her. The next moment I'm in the middle of New York with Fluttershy hiding under a newspaper and Twilight screaming that we need to find a way to get them back to Equestria. Then 20 soldiers come out of nowhere and surround us. Twilight and Fluttershy go all Prototype and start running on building while the soldires look a bit confused and then fill me with bullets.


And there was that time with the fever induced hallucination with Deadpool and Rarity...That was just...really, really strange.

The brony meet-up was a lot of fun. The group was quite visible, what with the pony t-shirts and the large brony-banner that was held up. I couldn?t resist the urge to have a little fun:

Me: "My little pony? Aren?t you guys a bit too old to be into that?"
Brony: "No, you see, there is this new show, called Friendship is Magic, and it?s actually really good and has amassed quite a fanbase in a relatively short amount of time."
Me: "Oh yeah? But why is Rarity the best pony?"
Brony:" Yeah, really, the show has taken in qui...." *realization, grins* "She isn?t, Applejack is. Welcome to the meeting"

I didn?t bother to count the total of bronies, as people were coming and going all the time (I guess to go play video games), but there were about a dozen bronies present at all times. One had brought a Twilight Sparkle Plushie he bought off someone on deviantart IIRC. I don?t recall the name of the gifted seamstress, but the quality was top notch. I was quite impressed with it.

Much time was spent on people recounting how they stumbled upon the ponies, generally discussing the show and just plain getting to know one another.

Of course I had to show off my sculpted FIM stuff as well. I was completely overwhelmed by just how well received my Applebloom was.
I had only one painted copy with me, and that one sold for 20€ (~ 29$) in an instant, and those who missed out on that particular Applebloom already put in orders for more- so I guess I?ll be painting Appleblooms for a while.

Apparently there's a Pinkie Pie christmas ornament, and it's currently available at Carlton Cards stores in Ontario (likely the rest of Canada, too). Seems to be at least a little bit more show accurate than anything Hasbro's come up with, to boot. In any case, it's not ugly like some of their toys are. I'll likely be dropping by the Eaton Centre or thereabouts to pick one up. Can't say I've ever really been in a Carlton Cards looking for Christmas Ornaments (Hallmark seems to be the more popular choice).

1. Do you suppose they might start selling those at stores a little further south? I live in Oregon, and I don't have a car, so long distance trips aren't exactly easy for me, though if I could, I would.
2. Is it common for stores in Canada to be selling Christmas ornaments IN SUMMER? I mean, I know stores get started on holiday merchandising early (at least, they do where I come from), but that's kinda ridiculous.

Also, Rarity is a valid choice, and I accept and tolerate that you have chosen her. However, it is a simple fact that Pinkie Pie is truly the best pony. icon-waspy.gif

It's an American Greetings ornament, so I imagine it'll be sold in the US eventually. I've never really seen stores selling Christmas ornaments up here in the Summer before, but as I said I've never really been in a Carlton Cards; or specifically on the lookout for Christmas ornaments at this time of year. I don't buy many Christmas ornaments in general, aside from the occassional attractive one I might come across while browsing around or doing Christmas shopping in December. The only ones I tend to actively seek out are the Star Trek ships that Hallmark puts out; and I'll only buy that if they've chosen an attractive class of vessel to issue that year.

Sweet!

I ask because I actually have a fake bonsai Christmas tree (which I made--and flocked--myself) sitting on top of my bookcase year-round. It's kinda bare, having only a very few ornaments, so I would love to fill some space on it with some Pony! I'll have to keep an eye out for this . . .

Where are you from, if you don?t mind me asking?

Gamescom isn?t worth it, honestly. Even if I?d care for video games, it was so crowded, that even getting near the popular booths was impossible.
So while i would have liked to get a chance to chat with Notch at the Minecraft booth, I was not very keen on standing in line for hours on end.

Instead I went to the booth for Star Trek: Infinite Space. Never herd of the game, and I still don?t know what it?s about, but I got an inflatable Bat?Leth.

Which is awesome.
