@  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.

@  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.

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.

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.
