Valentine's Day. Bummer.

Snoo PINGAS usual, I see?

@  Plokatron : (14 February 2016 - 01:52 AM)

Going to try and dress up as AoSTH Robotnik. Only two things I see being had for the costume. The Moustache and the classic yellow target belt thing. May need some help. :drunk

@  Plokatron : (14 February 2016 - 01:40 AM)

Hmmm bit of cool news for me. I'm going to my first Comic Con!! No not the Comicon a comic con in cape girardeau. First Con thats been close enough for me to go to!! Blast it will be.

@  unluckiness : (14 February 2016 - 01:31 AM)

Chromedome aside, it's not like they're doing anything in MTMTE.

@  Whirl Maximus : (14 February 2016 - 01:23 AM)

It just hit me, MTMTE might lose Brainstorm, Chromedome, Fort Max, Rewind, Ravage and Blaster to RiD.

I'm actually rather fond of the phrase "You are being decieved," to be honest.

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 07:50 PM)

We can only hope.

@  Boomhauer : (13 February 2016 - 07:46 PM)

Also the Season 2 Trailer makes me hopeful for Clampdown getting more toys since he seems to be one of the blessed escapees

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 07:20 PM)

I had been hoping we'd get a good Windblade toy, and RID delivered this time.

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 07:20 PM)

Yeah, RID Windblade is basically a gigantic slap in the face to the people who think RID could NEVER be anywhere near as good as "collector's" lines like Generations.

@  Boomhauer : (13 February 2016 - 07:13 PM)

Bisk is fun, but I'm more excited about Strongarm's fishgun, Scorponok with a different transformation for once and a Windblade that can stand up

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 06:43 PM)

One-steps are pretty much the most fun thing ever. It's kind of addicting to just shift from one mode to another over and over again.

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 06:41 PM)

That makes him even better than a Warrior.

@  Cabooceratops : (13 February 2016 - 06:39 PM)

Bisk is a 1-Step

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 04:38 PM)

I hope Bisk is either a Legends or he's less messed up than he looks.

@  Plokatron : (13 February 2016 - 01:53 PM)

@Rycochet He is indeed voiced by Wierd Al. He is also a awesome brother. :D

@  Rycochet : (13 February 2016 - 07:15 AM)

Polkatron dares to be stupid and is voiced by A. Yankovic.

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 February 2016 - 07:07 AM)

He got all the musical talent in the family.

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:59 AM)

Polkatron? is he Plokatron's spotty brother?

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:58 AM)

Polkatron? is he Ploj

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 11:21 PM)

@Cabooceratops So was what I said. :D

@  Cabooceratops : (12 February 2016 - 09:10 PM)

It's called a joke, Polkatron, you may have heard of the concept?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 08:06 PM)

@Nutjob R/T @TheMightyMollusk Yesh are you Baybots thinking so litteral?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 02:41 PM)

Optimus makes a lousy helmet.

@  Nutjob R/T : (12 February 2016 - 02:11 PM)

Wait when did Optimus Prime fly off the top of your head?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 01:55 PM)

@Paladin @TheMightyMollusk @NotVeryKnightly Dumb dumb dumb on Hasbros part. Optimus flew withing the first three episodes of the G1 cartoon. No not the glide flight thing that only Deceps uses after that I mean the jetpack part. Plus I can site four other times he flew off the top of my head.

@  Boomhauer : (12 February 2016 - 12:45 PM)

Optimus already got to fly in RID's Season finale, though one could argue he was just falling with style instead of flying properly.

@  Rycochet : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

The Unicron Trilogy had awful shows but some really neat toys even if it did get off to a shaky start with some of the unnecessarily flawed Armada stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

Didn't he fly in Beast Hunters?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 11:58 AM)

What about Animated?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:55 AM)

Someone who never saw the Unicron Trilogy. God do I envy them....

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 11:49 AM)

...Hasbro's billing that new "Power Surge Optimus Prime" as "the first time Optimus takes flight." who thought THAT sounded right....

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:34 AM)

More likely, they'll all follow the same visual style to retain brand coherency. The most you could hope for is better writing, but don't hold your breath.

@  Dracula : (12 February 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Cool. Bay can't possibly direct all of those. Maybe we'll get someone else's vision of what a TF movie could look like.

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 10:14 AM)

ugh. we're apparently getting 1 TF film A YEAR starting 2017. and Bumblebee gets a spinoff film...

@  Plokatron : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 PM)

Guess no one has the comic then. Blast I need that close up of Ironhide's helmet!

@  Arazyr : (11 February 2016 - 01:41 PM)

@  D Buster Prime : (11 February 2016 - 01:21 PM)

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 10:54 AM)

nah! it's Venus that's going to Botcon!

@  Paladin : (11 February 2016 - 10:45 AM)

could've also meant Cree Summer...

@  Dracula : (11 February 2016 - 08:39 AM)

Good going, Blackarachnia. I heard it's been hard for her to get roles after Hasbro brought in Airachnid.

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 06:34 AM)

you mean Venus Terzo! she's supposed to be going to Botcon

QUOTE
Someone named EVN tipped me off in email about some upcoming McDonalds, so I called the them up to confirm it.

Apparently another wave of ponies is planned for March 9th (though she told me not to quote her on that exact date), along with Transformers on the boys side. They don't know specifically what characters/designs will be available, but she did say they usually try to release new sets, so hopefully something awesome pops up.

I was also told that this is going to be a huge promotion, and they expect to sell out of them pretty quickly. I guess our rabid collecting last time around tipped them off? We didn't have much access to blind bags back then, so these and the five piece molded set were the only show accurate stuff we could get our hands on (Even if McDonalds toys aren't really known for their quality). It sure was funny trying to sneak into McDonalds incognito style only to be called out as the third guy to come looking for ponies for his "Niece" or "Sister". I'm sure it will be twice as funny this time around.


Wow, perfect McDs promotion for our site icon-fire.gif

Ack double the Happy meal buying icon-screamer.gif Lots of mcnuggets and cheeseburgers for me. And yes I know it's possible to buy them seperate. I'd rather get the meal anyways icon-fire.gif
I did end up grabbing the whole round of ponies last year. But I want to see if these are similar to the last set or if it's random gimmick toys. Same for the Transformers. I like ones like they did for Animated but the stuff BK did for the movies tended to be nothing of interest.

This should be interesting. Wasn't there supposed to be a Happy Meal My Little Pony/Pok?mon promo in Europe soonish? I assume whatever toys they end up using will be the same in both regions.

Ugh, I wish they'd scheduled these for the summer promos rather than the winter ones. We always go get Happy Meals with the free coupons our library's summer reading program gives out and donate the toys as prizes in our annual family get-together's Bingo game. We pretty much have no reason to go near McDonald'ses any other time of year.

On the lighter side, this gives me an opportunity to crank out a certain comic I'd been wanting to do.

I'd like to replace Pinkie Pie with a better one at least--totally the weakest of the last bunch. And maybe they'll give us the Cutie Mark Crusaders.

I didn't get any of the MLP's last time, much to my chagrin. Once I finally got to a McDonald's, they were over... finished.

Just hope these are good ones.

And hoping that Cliffjumper will be part of the Transformers side, if they do Prime.

I just hope the Bronies won't throw a hissy if Cheerilee included instead of Trixie/Luna/Derpy/Heartstrings/DJ Pon3/etc.

Also hope Cheerilee is included again. icon-hotrod.gif

It would be ironic if these were reissues but Cheerilee was excluded, and ended up commanding serious money on ebay.

I personally hope Cheerilee is NOT in the next line up of toys. Why you may ask?

Because we already GOT Cheerilee. Give the spot to some other Background pony. I don't care who, just so there is somepony new.

I mean we can already guess the mane six will be there again. I'd like to see some variety in the toys.

It's a secret to everybody

In Hungary, the MLP-FiM Happy Meal toys have been out for a month now. Only the main six have been found so far, and totally randomly. Christopher... erm, Cheeri Lee and Celestia are not on the promo materials even, so they are most likely excluded.

And yeah, they are the same toys as the ones sold in the USA, but they are lacking the cutie mark brooms, erm, combs.

Lily Blossom. For some reason they decided some toy-only periwinkle pony was more important than Celestia, Luna OR any of the established background characters.
