I LOVE BOT MASTER SO MUCH. Too bad the toys sucked. I even own jungle fiver. I love him so much, but he can barely stand on his own.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 September 2016 - 05:03 PM)

That's the 90s.

@  MEDdMI : (27 September 2016 - 04:50 PM)

Ninjzz? That's an unfortunate name.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 04:44 PM)

Also I thought Fico Ossio was quite nice on Revolutions.

You know the planet is in a jam, a diabolical plan of only one man. Louis Leon Paradim an international punk, and his army of 3As are his piece of junk.

@  Telly : (27 September 2016 - 04:26 PM)

for the longest time i thought jungle fiver was called jungle fiBer

@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Although this is odd to me, since I'm fairly sure they are/were good friends.

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 03:49 AM)

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 07:01 PM)

So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2016 - 03:02 PM)

:(

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 September 2016 - 08:25 AM)

Discord at first seemed genuinely sad to see Twilight disheartened, to me it seemed he quite enjoyed using her as a 'sparring partner' in his game.

Yeah, I was totally expecting things to go that way; Discord starting to repent or something.

That was kinda... rushed. I finished watching it but it felt like it wasn't supposed to be over or something.

Other than that, still 1000 times funnier than Season 1 start and thus, atleast for me, a much better Season start overall.

Discord is SO RANDOM. Filling up a glass from the top down, drinking the glass instead of what's in it, and tossing it away with an Aqua Teen Hunger Force style explosion. And that's just in one shot. Did anyone catch who that fuchsia pony was that was going "Bliblibliblibliblibli" in the pan across Chaos-Ponyville?

Yeah I agree that this probably should have been a three parter, as it feels like 10 pounds of plot in a five pound bag. Discord's defeat felt really weak as we go from Twilight holding the idiot ball so she'd lose her colors, or Discord holding it so he'd be defeated. Everything betweeen those two were great and I did love the use of the letters, which really gave the lessons real purpose.

It were little touches like that that made the episode. The cloud over Twilight, too~

In the rewatch, I realized what DisQordia was...it's the Dodo's Wackyland from Looney Tunes/Tiny Toons.


Yeah, the resemblance between them seemed to grow the more changes he made. Too bad Warner Bros. doesn't own My Little Pony, or they could've just banished him there instead of turning him back into stone, lol.

QUOTE(Rezo @ Sep 24 2011, 10:04 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
[*] Needed to be a three-parter. Both episodes seemed a little rushed


Yep, it really could've benefited a lot from being 3 parts. Maybe if these two eps had been left as the S1 finale, with a cliffhanger that was resolved in the S2 premiere. The comedy was great, as usual (I think my favourite bits were Fluttershy while she was being nasty), but the actual rise/defeat of Discord plot seemed very rushed. Twilight's restoration was well-done, but the others were cured a bit too quickly and without fuss. And Discord's actual defeat seems like it was just thrown in there at the end to wrap everything up. However, it's not like he doesn't know what the Elements are capable of (and he knew his spells over the mane 6 had been broken)... given the way he just sat there and told them to go ahead, it's almost as if he wanted to be re-petrified, or at least accepted it as necessary.

I almost wonder if he's come to understand moderation after all, and recognizes going back into the statue (whatever it's like in there; maybe he has some kind of "world" to himself), with the occassional break-out every once in a while for a bit of fun, as an acceptable compromise with a more ordered Universe. To me, anyway, this sounds like a better explanation than "well, we just needed to end the episode and banged it out in 2 minutes".

But hey, while the true God of Chaos is away, we'll always have our minor Spirit of Chaos to keep the candle burning...
