@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 May 2016 - 12:58 PM)

And we run into something like the Galactus Fashion Conundrum. Are YOU going to be the one to go up to his face and tell him he's goofy-looking?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 12:32 PM)

Maybe Miles's villains think you're lame!

@  unluckiness : (30 May 2016 - 11:07 AM)

I don't mind Miles but his villains are kinda lame.

@  Bass X0 : (30 May 2016 - 09:29 AM)

I just thankful they didn't have a black Peter Parker.

@  tffan01 : (30 May 2016 - 09:09 AM)

I would have preferred Peter Parker. But If they really wanted to make a non-Peter Parker lead, they could have made Spider-Man 2099, at least it has a gimmick (futurism). While Miles, imo isn't that different from Peter Parker.

@  Locoman : (30 May 2016 - 08:52 AM)

That would be cool. Ultimate Universe kind of went off the rails toward the end, but I always liked Miles.

Also does anyone know if CatSCAN ever received a spark? His wiki article says he is a spark less build when he was created surly he has one now.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 May 2016 - 02:59 PM)

Or canadian stores, or australian stores, or german stores...

@  Bass X0 : (27 May 2016 - 02:14 PM)

at least you got the exercise. i ordered all of them online. there's no point in being a serious collector if someone is only going to rely on using UK stores.

The one I go to gives me a discount on each issue's cover price. I still have to go there to pick up my comics but I'm sure I'll never miss any of them

@  Dracula : (27 May 2016 - 07:26 AM)

Plokatron, I don't think many comics companies do direct subscriptions like that anymore. However many local comic shops will reserve comics for you in a subscription fashion.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 May 2016 - 06:46 AM)

I have a friend who is one of the illegitimte comics trivia masters on the planet, and he says all the animation was hand-drawn by Muppets.

This is EPIC. Fluttershy wrestling a bear, Rainbow Dash dropping the rainbow nuke, Rarity's couch... icon-hotrod.gif And of course, the many crazy antics of Twilight. Man, I missed this show during the summer.

Also, in one shot, we see Twilight and the others from above (first time, I think) - and that answers our old question - yes, ponies have cute mark on both sides. icon-hotrod.gif

And hey, they even put Derpy in the opening!

Nope, they are new. I bet we'll have some "Old Ponies' Home" scene in an upcoming episode.

Man, must say, the huge pile of ponies (including the Mayor) all surrounding Big Macintosh will lead to a lot of fanfics of 'that' nature. But regardless, that scene was hilarious. Loved how Derpy gets her eyes derped back again once the spell is dispelled.

And besides all the fun in the episode, Celestia's talk at the end and the whole lesson was a quite heartwarming one. As a kid, I have been a model student myself, and I know what it feels like to be thinking that you have let your teacher/mentor down... when in truth you were just over-reacting.

Okay, that was awesome. The Sonic RainBomb did it for me, as well as FS wrestling a bear. I like how Spike saved the day. Big Mac is golden, as he is every time we see him. And I actually really like Angry Celestia. We need more of her.

Of course, this was an important episode, because we can not get a lesson in every episode for the EI rating, without forcing Twilight to be in every episode.

Any idea where this goes in the timeline? I think summer, possibly before Dragon Shy. They don't seem to know eachother as well as in the DisQord Saga, and Fluttershy is still phobic of everything (according to Twilight)
I had a better signature... then it ran away. MLP card trade list. MLP blind bag trade list.

And of course Celestia was awesome. Now she actually flies and even jumps.

It's not the first time she's flown. But it is the first time she's teleported.

But when she appeared, it was like an old 80's family-friendly alien movie, particularly ET when the ship returns for him. She's just throwing beams of light everywhere like air-to-ground search lights.

I'd say sometime in late/mid-spring. Possibly even after Winter Wrap-up. The weather's warming-up, the skies are clear and sunny. Why wouldn't they want to invoke the right of Spring Fever and have a picnic?
Also, Twilight's mind was slipping. She clearly wasn't having rational thoughts.

Cosplay maybe? Show and tell snap on wings? A bigger Celestia fangirl than Twilight? Sneaking into Magic Kindergarden to spy on the unicrons?

I really enjoyed this one. The updated opening was good; it was about time the CMC were included in it. The facial expressions were priceless, and this definitely tops Swarm of the Century for how deranged we've seen Twilight. There were some seriously creepy vibes in her scene with the Crusaders, though, lol (unfortunately, a bit reminiscent of a certain fanon incarnation of Celestia)... and materializing inside the ball and destroying it seems almost like something Discord would do. She seemed extremely comfortable with teleporting in this episode, whenever it took place. I wonder if that kind of unhinged state of mind is one of the things that's more conducive for performing that kind of unusual magic. The Dinky and Ruby sightings were welcome, too; I hope we see more of both this season.
