@  BlackMax : (05 December 2016 - 06:18 PM)

..............I ~might~ want all the cold.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (05 December 2016 - 06:17 PM)

Trust me, you're not getting ALL the cold. You don't want ALL the cold.

@  BlackMax : (05 December 2016 - 06:04 PM)

You guys in Canada have nice weather! I know it! You keep sending all the cold down here to Ohio to dump snow on us.

But with Tauros you don't really have to worry about cars. ;)

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2016 - 04:20 PM)

At least you don't have to clean up after a bike.

@  Bass X0 : (04 December 2016 - 04:19 PM)

Bicycles? That's old school. Riding a Tauros is the thing to do these days.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 03:15 PM)

On a warm and sunny day, I could reach several dozen stores by bike.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 03:14 PM)

Lots of small, medium-sized and large cities within a short travelling distance of each other, and decent infrastructure.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 03:14 PM)

I guess that's the advantage of living in a decentralized major urban region.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 02:55 PM)

Multiples of each except for Scorch Strike Jetstorm.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 02:54 PM)

I've seen waves 1-3 of the original torpedo/cyclone/buzzsaw Mini-Cons plus a lone Scorch Strike Jetstorm from wave 4, as well as wave 1 of the Weaponizers.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 December 2016 - 02:33 PM)

I litteraly have to tracel 20 minutes out of town to the next town over if I want to even find the 5 dollar heads. Which of course.. I don't have the money to do *sulks in corner*

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2016 - 02:32 PM)

Yeah, still the first wave.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 December 2016 - 02:32 PM)

You have Minicons?

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2016 - 02:31 PM)

My Walmart has had three minicons and two Leader Skywarps and nothing else for about three months now.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 December 2016 - 02:31 PM)

No seriously... We have almost an entire aisle of Batman/Superman toys... and from what the stocker has told me...at least 10 more boxes of it in the back.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 December 2016 - 02:30 PM)

Wait.. you have Transformers? Around here it's "MAOR BATMANS!"

@  Steevy Maximus : (04 December 2016 - 02:18 PM)

Probably do

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 02:10 PM)

Seriously, I get the impression we actually have better distribution here around my part in Germany than most of the US does.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 12:06 PM)

Over 40 minutes of waiting on the phone to find out if they had Galvatron (I was aiming for a price match deal if they did). Along the way, I ended up connecting to two other customers who were waiting to be connected to other departments.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 12:00 PM)

Man, Walmart... that was an adventure of sorts yesterday...

@  wonko the sane? : (04 December 2016 - 11:57 AM)

I saw megatron at walmart, and astrotrain as well. Figured they were in the same case assortment. Now I don't know what to think.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 11:25 AM)

Still hoping to find Chromedome, and another shot at Rewind. Not part of the sale, but...

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 11:25 AM)

Wow, didn't even know those were out here yet.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 December 2016 - 11:15 AM)

I got me an astrotrain at that sale! Wanted a megatron too, but didn't find one.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 11:14 AM)

Went to TRU to take advantage of a 40% off deal they had on Sentinel Prime and Galvatron (I wanted the latter), but they were out of stock before the sale even began. =P Got a raincheck, at least.

@  BlackMax : (04 December 2016 - 08:33 AM)

Huh. Maybe I can figure a way to headcanon IDW Strafe into being AoE Strafe...

@  zephyrX9 : (04 December 2016 - 03:12 AM)

I'm sure under a different artist, she might look like something!

@  Verity Carlo : (04 December 2016 - 01:50 AM)

She....well, I'm not sure what she turns into, but it involves her face splitting in half.

@  Verity Carlo : (04 December 2016 - 01:49 AM)

There was also Strafe for Female Dinobots.

@  LordGigaIce : (03 December 2016 - 11:57 PM)

http://tfwiki.net/mediawiki/images2/3/33/Raptoricon_symbol.jpg

@  LordGigaIce : (03 December 2016 - 11:57 PM)

plus the best faction insignia ever

@  Dracula : (03 December 2016 - 11:27 PM)

but yeah we need toys of those Raptoricons yesterday.

@  Dracula : (03 December 2016 - 11:27 PM)

but BW also set the precedent that the gender of the scanned beast mode doesn't need to match the robot mode...so bright colors are fine ;)

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 11:04 PM)

That WOULD be a very good point, except Slash has got ~all the bright colors~, and in the bird world (which as we all know is also the dino world)rampant bright colors are a male thing.

@  LordGigaIce : (03 December 2016 - 10:56 PM)

There was that one Deluxe raptor mould from AoE....GET ON IT FUNPU....oh. Now I'm sad.

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 10:54 PM)

...I did not know bout this. Maybe I should amend my comment to "we need more female Dinotobts ~who have toys~."

@  Dracula : (03 December 2016 - 10:05 PM)

@BlackMax - did you know about the Raptoricons? Currently they've only been in fan club prose but they have pretty badass designs and are all female.

@  Rycochet : (03 December 2016 - 09:21 PM)

More female dinosaur transformers would be nice, but not specifically dinobots. Never been a fan of adding new guys to that specific subgroup, it feels a bit like when ageing rock bands add new members.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 December 2016 - 09:02 PM)

Wait, swoop isn't a woman?

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 07:44 PM)

Can I just take a moment and declare that we need some female Dinobots? Because we really need some female Dinobots.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2016 - 05:41 PM)

It was awesome seeing all those heroes together on screen, though. I hope Superman and Martian Manhunter get to participate in the next crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2016 - 05:36 PM)

The solution was also just a bit too easy... the Dominators are apparently just big sissys, give 'em a poke with a caddle prod and they'll run off

Everypony ready for an Applejack episode?

QUOTE
The Last Roundup: Applejack goes missing after attending a rodeo, so her pals search for her.

Looking at TVGuide.com, it appears that there won't be an encore showing immediately afterwards anymore. The time slot following all new episodes for now on will be reruns of S2 episodes. No more of the same episode back to back. So try not to miss the first showing, or you'll have to catch YouTube later instead.

In my opinion a great episode. AJ I thought was acting a bit out of character and maybe not living up to her elemeny of honesty, but she technically didn't lie. She just... didn't tell the whole truth.

Pinkie was fun, as usual. It was funny to see them use her as a "weapon" to try and get AJ to spill the beans. Angry Pinkie was funny too.

The final scene with Pinkie and Rarity was just awesome. Nice to see that the writers didn't just have them magically be on the train with the others. Poor Rarity... icon-fire.gif

And finally, Derpy is now officially canon and has a voice! Anyone know who was voicing her?

Yeah, me too. Lucy references excite me more than CANON DERPY. I mean, I'm glad the show has this ongoing back and forth with the fandom--god knows it wouldn't be as popular as it is without it--but I prefer that to be more in the background (like correctly pairing Lyra and Bon Bon, like they were this episode.)

Also, I love how this show isn't afraid to bend its own rules for the sake of a gag. Like, there's no way they wouldn't go back for Rarity and Pinkie, you know? But somebody said "ponies on a handcar! PONIES ON A HOOFCAR!" and so it went in.

Doesn't sound like Tabitha, but that just goes to show how good a VA she is.



One thing that's got me thinking is how come no one went with Applejack to watch her in the rodeo and offer support?

One thing that's got me thinking is how come no one went with Applejack to watch her in the rodeo and offer support?


Because that'd ruin the whole plot!

They actually named her derpy.

I.... don't know.... how I feel about that. I don't think I like it.
As always, I'm in agreement with Master Fwiffo.

I'm also not too fond of excessive slapstick (My fondness of Lesson Zero isn't exactly universal, either), which her scene kinda was. And it felt very, very forced.

I'll withhold judgement of the rest of the episode since the above may have coloured by impression of the rest beyond its actual relevance for the episode at large, though.

Well.....I....I don't know what to say. I've got mixed feelings about this. I'm not really sure what to think of it.
I'm still in shock that they actually made Derpy's name canon on the show. That was very unexpected. She had been absent in the past couple of episodes, but today she came back in a BIG way. And they even gave her a speaking role!

After watching the episode on the Hub this morning, I hit EQD to see what the fandom's response was to this. The number of responses there are overwhelming, but they seem positive overall. A whole lot of excitement going on there as a result of Derpy's canonization today.

I always thought that she was meant to be the "where's Waldo" of FiM and never expand past that. At least, that was the impression I always got. Hasbro really dropped a surprise on all of us today. One that I never expected would actually happen.

Poor Applejack. Looks like her episode today is going to be remembered as Derpy's episode instead.
