IDW G1 has been a victim of it's own success.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 July 2016 - 01:23 AM)

Though frankly I prefer IDW Ratchet with a Marvel-style head rather than his current Prime-style head.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 July 2016 - 12:34 AM)

Like dual Fall of Cybertron-IDW G1 designs.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 10:55 PM)

And it at least shows that they're allowed to repurpose designs from other universes.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 10:54 PM)

Dark Cybertron was around when things showing up in toyline and comic together became a really major thing.

@  Waspinator : (28 July 2016 - 10:51 PM)

Given that that Starscream says "Armada Starscream" on his box, I assume the toy was meant to be Armada Starscream and was just re-purposed by IDW to be a body for their Starscream.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (28 July 2016 - 09:24 PM)

Hey, Bass X0. It's nice to see somene else paying attention to the distinctions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 06:44 PM)

Also, Albino Prime that isn't Magnus.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 06:43 PM)

They made a toy that was IDW Starscream with an entirely Armada look.

@  Bass X0 : (28 July 2016 - 05:53 PM)

Other than a change of gimmicks and physical appearance (i.e. Deluxe Galvatron), Hasbro generally keeps a familiar color scheme for the Generations toys. It may not always be perfect or completely accurate, but I can't think of a Generations toy that looks completely different in color scheme to how they should do. A quick l;ook around my room and I can't see anyone who is completely the wrong color scheme. I'd say the FoC Combaticons and Wreckers are the wrong colors, but they're not supposed to be the G1 characters so they get a pass.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 05:45 PM)

The comics aren't beholden to previous G1 material, and the toyline doesn't have a strict need to follow the comics either so...

@  Bass X0 : (28 July 2016 - 05:40 PM)

And yet the comics are not damned. This is G1 Sentinel Prime, not Animated or Movie Sentinel Prime and so he should look the part to how G1 Sentinel Prime has been portrayed so far. An Animated Sentinel Prime color scheme can come later. I don't recall how important the G1 legacy of Primes (Convoys) is in Japan or even if they have Nova Prime, Sentinel Prime, and previous Primes. So maybe Takara will paint him as Animated Sentinel just because its what Japanese fans are most familiar with.  Sentinel Prime didn't have to have been a pre-use of the Astrotrain mold, indeed why even choose G1 Sentinel Prime at all after how long neglecting him?

@  OrionPax44 : (28 July 2016 - 02:02 PM)

Same here unluckiness. I bought him mostly for the Fire Guts look of the Titan Master.

@  unluckiness : (28 July 2016 - 08:38 AM)

I kinda like Fire Guts Sentinel Prime TBH. Though, I think the gray would have looked better as black.

@  Boomhauer : (28 July 2016 - 08:36 AM)

I would've been fine with the Bayformers 3 Sentinel colors, he looked slick.

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 July 2016 - 08:33 AM)

Same as Animated Sentinel Prime then, I bet he's a Functionist fundamentalist too!

@  Rycochet : (28 July 2016 - 08:07 AM)

Sentinel Prime's colour scheme is awful, they should have painted him in his animated deco, comics be damned.

@  Dracula : (28 July 2016 - 07:38 AM)

He's also orange

@  Paladin : (28 July 2016 - 07:23 AM)

kinda not enjoying my TR Sentinel Prime now that someone summed up his personality as "Make Cybertron Great Again."

@  OrionPax44 : (27 July 2016 - 04:51 PM)

Sounds pretty kinky.

@  Whirl Maximus : (27 July 2016 - 04:17 PM)

@  Vexwing : (27 July 2016 - 12:34 PM)

Sadly no orchestra for me, but we did have the TFA clip as well.

@  ChessPieceFace : (27 July 2016 - 12:17 PM)

I saw Weird Al at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, playing with a full orchestra. It was pretty special. And yes, Dare To Be Stupid! With an introductory video clip from TFA, no less.

@  Vexwing : (27 July 2016 - 11:33 AM)

Got to see Weird Al perform Dare to be Stupid in his set last night! That was a nice surprise.

TMW you see a bunch of people have liked something you posted while you were away, and you're like "what did I even say?!"

@  Bass X0 : (26 July 2016 - 05:26 PM)

Regarding MTMTE#55 being released early in some places, its okay to discuss the contents of the issue as long as spoilers are kept within the thread. I refuse to read discussion threads of comics I have yet to read to avoid being spoiled. I also find it pointless to go into a discussion thread and expect to not be spoiled if you have yet to read the issue (unless you don't care).

@  Locoman : (25 July 2016 - 07:16 PM)

My story begins in nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say "dickety" because the Kaiser had stolen our word "twenty". I chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickety-six miles.

One of the things I love about the show is the musical numbers, from Pinkie's random songs to the grandness of At The Gala. So let's discuss the wonderful songs that the series has brought us.

Also, Daniel Ingram has posted a demo to Hop Skip Jump from Dragonshy. Enjoy icon-hotrod.gif

Good timing for a thread (but no alliterative title?)




Anywho.... So, I was thinking...in Winter Wrap-Up, the Southern Bird Verse. Who's singing it?
There's 2 different singers, and Flutter Shy seems to be the second singer ("We wake up all the sleepy-heads"). So who sings first?

It was a bit boring the title wasn't it? I've given it a more pony based theme now icon-hotrod.gif

As for who's singing that verse, it puzzles me too. I think it's Rarity since she doesn't sing any other parts.

So far, I have Winter Wrap Up, Art of the Dress, and At the Gala on my MP3 player. I still need to add Giggle at the Ghostly and Equestria Girls.

Winter Wrap Up is really fun, but the counterpoint makes it a bit difficult to sing.
You are more than flesh and bone / Can't you see, you're something beautiful...you gotta believe that you are / Someone worth dying for

God's not dead!

In 1996: "TRUKK NOT MUNKEY!"; In 2013: "PONEE NOT HUGHMAN!"; in 2014: "TREE NOT CASSUL"; Regardless of the fandom, it all boils down to one thing: "RUINED FOREVA!"

Here's a link to the soundtrack files I made for myself; I uploaded them a while back for someone else, but I figure it doesn't hurt to link here as well. Everything from season 1, in the order it was heard, plus the opening and closing themes on either end; and Equestria Girls as the final track. 256kbps AAC, and volume normalized as much as possible.

Yeah, the quality is surprisingly adequate for songs that've been pulled from lossy sources. However, we may not have to make do with those forever. According to a post on Equestria Daily earlier today, Daniel Ingram indicated that there is in fact an extended version of the main theme, but that it won't be released until the soundtrack is put out (he doesn't know when that might be, but apparently he's under the impression it's going to be done). I was always hoping there'd be a proper CD release.

Such often seems to be the case with full versions of songs which have been truncated for television; maybe we just get too accustomed to the more familiar version. Either way, it'd be fun to hear. I hope they include some background music and maybe alternate cues, if any exist. In a way, I wish Hasbro would simply give the material to a company like La-La-Land Records or Film Score Monthly; now they do excellent soundtrack work, with extensive liner notes and as much content as is possible to squeeze onto optical disc(s). La-La-Land in particular has done several albums for animated properties from DC, I believe.

A Ponychan contributor occasionally (~weekly) updates this everything Everything EVERYTHING in pony music compilation. I suspect, but cannot confirm, that the sound quality of the official music is probably not quite up to the level of the collections above. On the other hoof, Waka's compilation includes pretty much Every Fan Music Ever. While production quality varies, it is the quickest way to get everything out there for your perusal.

For the record, I happen to like RainbowCrash88's straightforward 8-bit interpretations of Ingram's songs, as well as UnanimousDelivers' crazy samplefests, which are just too much fun. In the latter case it's helped by not overusing the "Louder!"/"yay" samples, which I feel is a crutch too many people are relying on.

I've compiled a great deal of the fan-made remixes, 8-bit versions, and also Eurobeat Brony's compositions; almost all in lossless FLAC, sometimes requesting FLAC versions when the original upload was lossy. However, since I didn't create them and don't have permission to redistribute (especially in the case of Eurobeat Brony, whose songs you can download in lossless quality in a name-your-price kind of deal), I only include those versions of the official songs that I made myself in the collection I linked to above.

Thank you so much for these!

The only thing I can think of that's "missing" is Sweetie Belle singing the CMC theme (although I can't remember if that might have been too short to be worth bothering?) and the version of the opening that was sung by Pinkie's singing VA. Has no one been able to save a copy of the latter?

Yeah, I felt Sweetie's line or two of the CMC theme she'd come up with was a little too short. Tbh, I'd hoped that a more complete rendition of her version of the theme would show up at some point in the future, which is why I added the "(Rock Ballad Version)" to the title of the one they performed at the talent show.

I hadn't heard that Pinkie's singing VA had a version of the theme out there; it'd be interesting to hear.

It's cool both for the fact it's her singing it, and that it gives us a version where someone's just plain singing the theme and not as their characters.

I think that Winter Wrap Up is the best done and most addictive, but I will admit that a recut of the CMC theme with proper vocals would knock my socks off.
