Yeah, and Alola Form Sith are fire-type.

@  Touch My Thighs : (29 August 2016 - 05:37 AM)

Some regional variations actually have some cool headdress-type things instead of the black hood.

Sith Robes? Really?

@  Kalidor : (28 August 2016 - 09:48 PM)

Most google ads base their content on sites you've visited - so you're probably visiting a lot of news sites.

@  unluckiness : (28 August 2016 - 09:33 AM)

What, you don't find Sith robes attractive?

@  Pennpenn : (28 August 2016 - 09:26 AM)

I'm sick of this Pony jive being shoved down our throats by you bronies. You've taken what's a rather enjoyable show for little girls (and god knows how long it's been since that happened last) and you've made it into the most obnoxious internet meme and fan group that enrages me to a point not even furries/ICP fans/street mimes could elicit from me. This comes from a guy who lived in Pittsburgh for 2 years and had to deal with hugging Anthrocon weirdos in person.

Of course I'm going to be called all sorts of names after this. I don't care. My problem isn't with the show, even though I think if it had remained more story-based like the pilot it might've been worthy of the love you all seem to give it, it's with you. I feel embarrassed for you. Something I've never felt for myself in about 15 years of toy collecting and yet I cringe everytime I see a grown man gushing about Pinkie Pie or Rainbow Dash. I can't wait until this hipster fad dies out, hopefully some of you will see sense before your brain cells all meet the same fate.


I'm just amazed it elicits such a strong reaction, especially since the two fandoms aren't that dissimilar.

Even the same parent company.

I don't think they're similar at all, and being owned by the same company has nothing to do with anything. I see your avatar though so I don't think there's much point to arguing with you.

Furthermore, I'm presently the finance clerk for my congregation and just got volunteered to help do PR work as well, meaning that I now have real-world experience in these fields.

Oh, and Roleplaying Tips Weekly published a few of my pieces about RPGs, and even let me do a guest blog one morning in recognition of how well-received some of my past articles had been. That might give me some leeway to working for Wizards of the Coast, which Hasbro now owns.

So I do, indeed, have legitimate qualifications to be working there anyway.

While that all sounds semi-impressive, you lost any credibility when you planned to get your gf back by making a TF/MLP crossover to try and get you noticed by Hasbro as part of some bizarre convoluted plan. Yeah, you say it's a joke but jokes have to be funny fyi.

Is it wrong that I kind of want to throw in support for the TF/MLP crossover just to tick off the people who seem compelled to enter a topic they know they're going to hate (I mean, really, what did they think this was going to be about?) just for the purpose of expressing how much they hate/don't care about the topic and then challenge anyone who says differently?

Of course the response to this is going to be that everyone should be free to express their opinions regardless of being positive or negative and then the response to that will be that there seems to be little point in doing so when your mind is already made up and the sum total effect of doing so is to raise your blood pressure and make you look like an intolerant jerk, after which the responses will degrade into name calling and general irritability. So lets just cut to the chase and call it a day, hm?

Scathing sarcasm aside, the idea of a My Little Pony/Transformers crossover line actually sounds... kind of cool. Assuming the budget would support quality design. Equines are something not often (ever?) touched on in Transformers, despite the appearance lending itself quite nicely to a transformation using the legs as limbs. Hell, if we can have nonsensical Star Wars/Marvel crossovers, why not this?

Especially if we get one of Doctor Whooves. A three-way crossover that would win my support any day of the week icon-fire.gif

Actually, I frequently make jokes at my own expense concerning just how absurd my life gets at times; I've made a few here on the Allspark, and those who've been reading my fic on Lexicon (transformersfanfic.com) have seen entire story arcs based on me poking fun at different things that are going on (like the day that I tried to cancel my contract with a former internet service provider, only for them to try and up-sell me).

As an example,

QUOTE
"Wow. With all this drama going on, it sounds like we're characters in a fic written by a guy who desperately needs a job and a girlfriend."


At the time I wrote that joke, I was between jobs and between girlfriends. By the time I finally got around to publishing the chapter said joke was in, I'd come full circle; my temp job was over with, and I'd parted ways with my then-GF.

Heck, if I actually do get on with Hasbro, my page at the Wiki'd be more absurd than a Uwe Boll film ("Can honestly state that he was born in three different locations at the same time.").

I'm just amazed it elicits such a strong reaction, especially since the two fandoms aren't that dissimilar.

Even the same parent company.


I don't think they're similar at all, and being owned by the same company has nothing to do with anything. I see your avatar though so I don't think there's much point to arguing with you.

I don't remember TF fandom having any equivalent of "welcome to the herd". That just feels like identity assimilation, and honestly, that creeps me out. Seriously, can't a person enjoy something without having to associate with a particular collective?

Burn it x infinity.

I'm sick of this Pony jive being shoved down our throats by you bronies. You've taken what's a rather enjoyable show for little girls (and god knows how long it's been since that happened last) and you've made it into the most obnoxious internet meme and fan group that enrages me to a point not even furries/ICP fans/street mimes could elicit from me. This comes from a guy who lived in Pittsburgh for 2 years and had to deal with hugging Anthrocon weirdos in person.

Of course I'm going to be called all sorts of names after this. I don't care. My problem isn't with the show, even though I think if it had remained more story-based like the pilot it might've been worthy of the love you all seem to give it, it's with you. I feel embarrassed for you. Something I've never felt for myself in about 15 years of toy collecting and yet I cringe everytime I see a grown man gushing about Pinkie Pie or Rainbow Dash. I can't wait until this hipster fad dies out, hopefully some of you will see sense before your brain cells all meet the same fate.

They're both "kiddie" franchises that each have a large segment of adult fans.

I just don't get how you're willingly part of one (or MORE judging by your Kamen Rider avatar) yet think the other somehow deserves belittling insults about their mental capacity.

Of all the things to get bent out of shape over, this seems like it should be somewhere near the bottom.

It's just a phase, like Pokemon, Power Rangers, and Ninja Turtles, among others. Those things are all still around, but things have settled considerably with them.

This is a TERRIBLE and HILARIOUS thread for somebody with an aversion to be reading.

re: Pony crossover.
Best thing to do is get some pony toys, and some Transformers, and then put them on the same shelf. That is one of the more frequently overlooked yet totally awesome aspects of the brand.

A pony Transformer isn't impossible. I mean we got awesome stuff that didn't really have any in-brand precedence all over the United line. Like the 2010 Highbrow or random blue re-colors of The Fallen that don't really fill any demand. "Pony" isn't a specific brand thing like all the G.I.Joe stuff. There's a lot of reasons not to do a pony, but those same reasons apply to a lot of things Hasbro does frequently.

A full-on crossover is... less likely.

Woooo!

^This. Like I said before, this a is a cute, well made show for girls and I think people could admire that more if OMGPINKIEPIEISSORANDOMKAWAII wasn't being shoved in their face by bronies.

And Liege, you're words really have had an effect on me. It made me relise I've shouldn't care about what others think of me, I should only care about what I think of myself.

Liege is a small dude with a lot of wisdom.

Well one of those descriptive words is accurate I suppose!

Much like Inspector Spacetime, the Internet has indeed ruined any enjoyment I may have potentially derived from MLP.
