@  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)

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

@  Robowang : (27 September 2016 - 07:12 AM)

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  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.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

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.

Can we change the title to "Liege Overreacts"? This doesn't look like a crossover thread anymore.

All this over reaction upsets me because now I can't give the bronies a light hearted teasing without everyone jumping out of the woodwork to defend them against my weak ass joke.

It's ok to be a non-fan of something without throwing around al this hate and anger. Bronies for the most part are keeping to themselves. They know how to respect the non-fans and not cram it down our throats, at east on this board. So let's give the hate a rest.

I'm not gonna lock this thread as I hope people can maybe discuss this a bit without personal attacks and maybe come to an understanding of sorts.

And FP, please, stop talking about yourself so much. We wanna talk about toys, not your personal history.

Perhaps in an attempt to re-rail the thread...

The other day, I had Beast Wars 2 Moon down off the shelves. That toy is just bizarre when compared to the other Beast Wars toys and... I must say, he did have me wondering what a MLP Transformer would look like.

Then I thought what that would mean for the MLP character, and was kinda creeped out. A cute and cuddly little girls' character getting torn to pieces during the process of turning it into a robot. The imagery is a little disturbing.

Seeing as Transformers is a multiverse, galazy and universe spanning scifi adventure property (when it isn't stuck on earth). I could see how this would work, in the fiction anyway. The Decepticons invade whatever planet the ponies live on, subjugating them through military conquest, and start converting friendship and/or magic into energon. The ponies, now a slave race of drones, mind controlled through various means need a hero, one rises up, and the Autobots show up to try and free these poor beaten and oppressed equines. You could get a good story out of it, maybe.

However, my interest in this would be on the same level I have for the other crossover properties (Marvel, Star Wars), little to none.

I don't think a crossover would be too hard to put together, a groundbridge malfunction or teleportation spell accident could pretty much account for everything.

I dunno, I can't find it any more creepy than any of the Beast Wars TFs, which for the most part I don't really find creepy.

But for Beast Wars, we were introduced to the robots first. We know that the "animals" aren't really animals.

If it was an existing cuddly cartoon character, though, unhinging the head for the first time would definitely feel more like decapitation. No?

Yes.

ONE OF US, ONE OF US, ONE OF US.


Seriously, Nerds (myself included) have the problem of being over zealous about their (our) enjoyment of certain things. If you like one thing they (we) like, then you must be more like them (us) then you realize! It's an acceptance thing, after a lifetime of being outcasts, they (we) want their (our) group to be as large and inclusive as possible. If it is attacked it must be defended, if you like it at all you are a part of the group, etc, etc. Even the act of embracing what originated as an insult as some sort of moniker is an extension of this.

And then, eventually you get over that, live your life and stop caring about that sort of thing. You like ponies? Great, who cares?

Blur as Pinkie Pie... that's... inspired, actually. Although it would be better if it were G1 Blur. Most of those are really good choices, as far as I understand the characters (I don't actually watch the show, but I love the fan culture - I'm weird like that). I'm now imagining a situation in which G1 Blur and Pinkie Pie have an adventure together... it would be the single fast-talking-est show ever.

I've... never noticed any kind of 'one of us' thing with MLP... then again, that sort of thing doesn't work on me, so maybe I'm just missing it. I could understand though, when the default negative reaction seems to be 'one of them'.

The boxset is a little too pastel for my tastes, but I'd totally buy Applejack and Luna at retail. Maybe not as those characters per se, but the way their colors apply to those molds is great.
