@  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)

@  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.

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.

They could just be magiced from rats or something, though. Even Twilight could do that, though the "horses" she created from mice seemed to be in rather poor taste, judging by her friend's reactions.

It'd take a pretty badass pony to volunteer for that duty; or maybe it's just part of the job for those Pegasi who usually cart Celestia around.

I expect Nightmare Night is celebrated every year, but the NMM's actual appearance was forgotten/corrupted over time (the statue in this ep could well have been overgrown and lost in the Everfree) and the true meaning lost. They may even had something akin to Santa Claus as an icon for Nightmare Night by the time of the series start (i.e. how Santa is not even remotely like baby Jesus in appearance). And if anyone thought to make the connection in S1E1, they were too freaked out by the reality to mention it.

This episode must have been hell for the animators. All the background ponies, even the palette swap ones, had their own unique costumes. I didn't see Lyra anywhere though. Did anyone else happen to notice her?


It was a lot of work, but all the late nights were worth it. Lyra actually shows up in 2 different costumes, the pony in the mummy costume is Lyra. There is also one scene with the town running in terror where she's not in the mummy costume and is wearing a bonnet (I think one of the other artists just took her running from one of the other episodes and added the bonnet in afterwards).


Ah. I thought the Mummy looked too blue to be Lyra so figured it was Romana Colgate, showing up for the party twice.


I might need to adjust my TV's color settings.

If you look at the mane, however, that doesn't look anything like Rarity. It's too short in the front and the back.

nope, Nayuki already mentioned it.


Wait, what? Are you implying that I denied that Pipsqueak was balloon character or that I confirmed he was? I don't think I've done either yet. Well either way, I will now.

Pipsqueak IS the comic-con balloon character (minus the pirate costume of course).

Fanon influence or happy coincidence? Either was it's cool to see that even on the show Derpy is causing problems for Carrot Top. At least the contents of her fridge are safe... for now.

Carrot Top and Derpy actually in a scene together on the show; that's pretty cool. The only thing I would've maybe liked even more is seeing Derpy taking Dinky trick-or-treating in the background of some shot. That firefighter costume of Dinky's is pretty adorable.

Rarity was in an early version of the script/storyboards (the leaked image was from one of the early storyboards), but was later cut out due to time constraints in the episode (only so much you can fit in 22 minutes). It's not my place to go into details, but her sequence was the least important for Luna's story so it was the best place to trim things down.

Don't worry Rarity fans, next episode has plenty of marshmellowy goodness.


Aw...we missed out on not only a Rarity/Luna scene but a Rarity/Derpy scene? icon-screamer.gif Stupid clock!

Sweet. Funny how the people vectoring the poster won't get to actually put him in until his next appearance, since we haven't seen him out of costume and with his cap on yet.
